Widowed single mother Stephanie Smothers runs a vlog featuring crafts and recipes for parents. She becomes friends with Emily Nelson, the mother of her son's schoolmate and a PR director for a fashion company, and they exchange confessions over martinis. Stephanie shares that as a teenager, she had sex with her half-brother Chris. Emily is frustrated by the lack of success of her husband, English professor Sean Townsend, and their (well-hidden) poor financial situation.
Emily, having predicted their ruse and disabled the microphones, confesses her crimes while holding the pair at gunpoint, saying that she will stage their murder-suicide. Shooting Sean in the shoulder, she turns the gun on Stephanie, who reveals that a hidden camera is livestreaming the entire event on her vlog. Emily attempts to escape, only to be hit by a car driven by Stephanie's friend Darren. She is arrested immediately after.

Greetings! A little while ago, Stephanie blogged about the perils of being a non-member and the limited rights of nonmember joint-account owners. But do these rights extend to nonmembers in the case of co-applicants on a loan? In this day and age of hyper-connectivity and transient travel, credit unions can stand to lose some business if potential borrowers were not permitted to solicit help from a slightly more credit-worthy friend with the unfortunate reality of falling outside of the credit union's field of membership. This blogpost will address the permissible roles nonmembers can play in the loan application process.
Despite fears to the contrary, the deductions for interest paid on home equity loans and for private mortgage insurance were mostly preserved in the recent Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) and corresponding tax extenders bill. The IRS issued new guidance earlier this week on the deduction for home equity loans as well as the deduction for mortgage insurance premiums. The Instructions for Form 1098 and General Instructions provide guidance on amending Form 1098. For additional information, we recently blogged about some of the major components of TCJA that affect credit union operations. Until next time compliance friends!

Asking for a favor refers to asking someone to do something for you. Use these phrases to politely ask for a favor. When someone asks you for a favor, you'll have to either grant it (say yes) or refuse it (say no). Pay special attention to the form of the verb used in each case.
It's common to ask for more specifics when granting a favor. For instance, if your friend asks you to help him out with a project, you might ask some follow up questions to get an idea of what is needed.

Lincoln stops by Benny's Ristorante to find Vito cooking his mother's bucatini recipe. He asks if she still lives in Empire Bay, but Vito explains that she passed a while ago. When Lincoln goes on to ask if he has any folks back there, Vito remains silent for a moment, then hands him a newspaper. It's an article about Chet Carbonale, a city councilman who's up for reelection. He tells Lincoln he needs a favor.
He explains that Carbonale and his pals killed a friend of his, and it's taken him twelve years and a lot of money to track this guy down. He says he will make it worth his while, as well as consider it a personal favor. Vito says the guy is a real prick and nobody can stand him, so Lincoln ought to be able to find someone to give up his location easily.
When Lincoln returns, Vito asks if he made Paulie suffer, but Lincoln states he's not big on prolonging the inevitable, and if Vito wanted it handled like Grecco, he could have brought him back to Vito. Lincoln goes on to say that Vito's friend must have been something else if it took all these guys to bring him down. Vito replies that a couple of them sold him out and screwed him when he went to them for help. As for how they all ended up in New Bordeaux, Vito explains that The Commission gives Sal extra leeway on how he runs things, and in return, he takes whoever they send him and makes them part of his organization.
The last guy on Vito's list is Dario Murtas. Dario thinks he's a tough guy, actually calling Vito and telling him where he'd be: hiding out at his island stronghold in Bayou Fantom. Once he's dealt with, Lincoln returns to Vito, who tells a sombering tale of his best friend Joe Barbaro and the series of events that led to his death.

Selman (1980) outlines five stages of friendship from early childhood through to adulthood. In stage 0, momentary physical interaction, a friend is someone who you are playing with at this point in time. Selman notes that this is typical of children between the ages of three and six.
Most children want to be liked and accepted by their friends. Some popular children are nice and have good social skills. These popular-prosocial children tend to do well in school and are cooperative and friendly. Popular-antisocial children may gain popularity by acting tough or spreading rumors about others (Cillessen & Mayeux, 2004). Rejected children are sometimes excluded because they are rejected-withdrawn.
Mother and vlogger Stephanie (Kendrick) befriends stylish fellow mum Emily (Lively), but when her new best friend mysteriously disappears from their small town, Stephanie finds that she new much less about Emily than she thought.
But behind the scenes of the final season, things weren't always as cheerful and comedic as they appeared on-screen, as the cast was dealing with divorces, fertility issues and figuring out the next chapter of their lives after being part of one of TV's most successful series of all-time, which is still just as popular and relevant as ever thanks to its after-life on Netflix.
Heading into its final (shortened) 18-episode run, Friends co-creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman knew exactly how they wanted to say goodbye to their creations and, more importantly, ready to move on.
