We all know the sadness around the death of a grandparent. They were always there for you assisting your parents in every way to give you the best life possible. They were always so patient and kind and losing them can be just as painful as losing any other family member.

Of course, there is the indescribable pain of losing a parent.

It is a sad fact of life that our parents will die. No matter how much you want to avoid it, it is going to happen. How we handle it is another story. Some people never fully recover from the death of a loved one. Others manage the pain with grace. There is no right or wrong way to grieve and it all takes time.

A family from Arizona has tragically been without a home since New Year’s Day. Fortunately, however, thanks to the swift efforts of a neighbor, they still have each other.

On New Year’s Day, the Salgado family was asleep in their home in Avondale, Arizona when they heard a frantic knock at their door. Nicole Salgado’s husband, who lived in the home with their children, opened the front door to find her neighbor shouting at her to get her family out of the house. It was on fire.

The Salgado family woke up New Year’s Day to find their house in flames.

“We were all asleep,” Salgado explained to CNN in an interview. “Then all of the sudden around 7:30 in the morning, we hear banging on our door and our doorbell is going off and we kind of get scared.”

Their neighbor, Carolyn Palisch, was there telling them to get out of the house. Footage from the family’s home security video shows their neighbor running past flames to get to the home.

“He opened the door and all I heard was our neighbor Carolyn saying your house is on fire you have to get out,” said Salgado.

Salgado, who is a mother to four children, hurried to gather her children. Together, all of them escaped the burning home safely. “It was just kind of frantic at first, making sure we got everyone out and the dogs out,” she explained. “Then once we realized the full extent of it we were just in shock as we watched our home burn.”

Sadly, the Salgado family lost all their belongings in the fire

Salgado explained that the roof of her house collapsed moments after they escaped. According to CNN, firefighters at the scene claimed that if the family had still been sleeping at the time the roof had collapsed they would have inhaled the smoke and likely passed out immediately.

We are so thankful to just be alive,” Salgado explained in a post to her TikTook page. She also included doorbell camera footage of the moment their neighbor came to the rescue.

Salgado’s video has been liked nearly 7 million times on TikTok.

“Never did we think it was going to blow up the way it did. But we are so grateful,” Salgado explained. “We are so glad it did for Carol, to show how amazing she is. If it wasn’t for her it’d be a totally different story. We feel so thankful to her. We’re always going to consider her family. She not only saved us, she saved our kids.”

Salgado says that the cause of the fire is still under investigation and shared that her family has created a Go Fund Me account to help them rebuild their lives.

Cardi B Is Being Sued For The Use Of A Tattoo On Her Album Cover

Cardi B is facing a mounting legal challenge over one of her album covers. A judge recently decided that the use of a tattoo on one of her album covers. Namely, the lawsuit states that the album cover used the tattoo in a humiliating way.

Cardi B is heading to court after a federal court ruling.

Cardi B is going to court over the massive back tattoo displayed on Cardi B’s “Gangsta Bitch Music Vol. 1.” The tattoo of a tiger and a snake was prominently displayed across the man back on the album cover as Cardi B drinks from a Corona bottle. That photo is the cause of a lawsuit against Cardi B.

Cardi B and her legal team originally argued that the image was a transformative take on the original image. The rapper argued that the use of the image was protected under fair use, but the judge did not agree.

“To constitute a transformative fair use, the revised image must have significant transformative or creative elements to make it something more than mere likeness or imitation,” writes Carney. “A reasonable jury in this case could conclude that there are insufficient transformative or creative elements on the GBMV1 cover to constitute a transformative use of Plaintiff’s tattoo.”

The judge is using the testimony of the man who created the album cover against Cardi B.

The creator, Timm Gooden, testified that he had created an album cover after using various images. When he turned in the draft, Gooden was told to find a different image and he used an image he found from a Google search. The image was then pasted onto the man in the photo and used as the album cover.

Kevin Brophy Jr. alleges that the use of the tattoo misappropriated his likeness in a humiliating way. Brophy tried to use an expert to claim that more than $1.5 million were made because of the image, but the judge disagreed.

The case will be heading to a jury in 2021 adding to a trend of tattoo litigation.

Catherine Alexander, WWE wrestler Randy Orton’s tattoo artist, is suing the WWE and Take-Two Interactive Software over a tattoo. The wrestler is depicted in a video game with the tattoo and the tattoo artist wants to be compensated for the use of it.
