The nationwide unemployment rate continues to improve but unfortunately not for President Obama’s brother-in-law!
Craig Robinson got FIRED from his head coaching job at Oregon State University today after six seasons with the Beavers’ basketball team!
Michelle Obama’s older bro took the job at Oregon State back in 2008, the same year Barack won the White House!
But he went 94-105 during his head coaching tenure and failed to ever

Congrats to first time Dad Gnasher at Drusillas Park in the UK!
Oh, Gnasher is a beaver by the way! We figured the name might be a dead giveaway.
The North American Beaver had two babies with his lover Gnawer. They were born on June 5th, just in time for Father's Day.

Julianne Moore is on the cover of More's March issue and she talks about the most random things in her interview.
Her are some HIGHlights:
On celebrity magazines:
"They encourage young women, and some middle-aged women, to be interested in somebody else’s narrative rather than their own. I don’t want my daughter or her friends to be interested in Jessica Simpson; I want them to be interested in what’s happening in their own lives."
On plastic surgery and aging:
"I feel that with a few exceptions, people always look like they’ve had surgery; they don’t look any younger. I’m 51, and no matter what I do to my face, I'm still going to be 51. Age is about life span, about the journey we take…it gets back to narrative: You have to be where you are in your story and enjoy it for what it is."
On her quirky love of Beavers:
"Beavers don’t seem that industrious when you look at them, but they make those dams, little by little…I am diligent. That’s one of my qualities: diligence. Not very glamorous, but true."
We never knew she had such an obsession with narrative. Maybe that comes from being an actress.

In 1946 someone thought it would be super-duper cute to put some Canadian beavers in Argentina's Tierra del Fuego National Park.
So Argentine officials put 25 of the happy little beavers in the park, and and for the past 60 years the tourists who flock to the southern tip of South America rejoice when they see the beavers busily building dams and gnawing through trees.
Lovely, except for one thing: the Argentine beaver population has now grown from 50 to 200,000.
It's virtual army that is chomping, cutting and flooding forests across this frosty, remote archipelago known as Tierra del Fuego, or Land of Fire. And the beavers are moving north, having swum across the turbulent, freezing waters of the Strait of Magellan.
Today, the rodents cause millions of dollars in damage, often to roads flooded by beaver dams.
Recently the government has been in talks about hiring professional sharpshooters to search and destroy every last one of them, perhaps even from helicopters.
This comes as a sad surprise to those of us that thought you could never have too much beaver.
