CNN’s Joe Johns went viral on Tuesday night after a confrontation with a raccoon on the White House lawn.

The network’s senior Washington correspondent can be seen in the video throwing what appeared to be a work bag at the animal while attempting to shoo it away.

“Frickin’ raccoons, man. God, again! This is the second time! Jesus … It always comes around right around when I’m about to go on TV … get!” a frustrated Johns said before growling at the raccoon.

Johns was praised on social media for how he handled the situation, with others saying the interaction encapsulated a tumultuous 2020.

Tuesday evening wasn’t the first time reporters have encountered raccoons on White House property. CBS News White House correspondent Paula Reid on Sept. 29 reported a raccoon had “attacked multiple news crews” on Sept. 29.

Andrew Gatt’s insanely simple hack for preventing kitchen spills goes viral

Cooking up a great hack! Man’s VERY simple hack for avoiding liquid drips in the kitchen goes viral

  • TikTok user Andrew Gatt shared the trick on the video-sharing app last week 
  • After pouring the eggs into the pan, he demonstrates how to put the bowl back on the counter without any of the leftover egg dripping down the sides 
  • Instead of simply righting it, he turns it all the way upside down and rights it on the opposite side, so the egg drips back into the bowl
  • The video has been viewed 1.7 million times so far 

Amateur home cooks who are tired of kitchen messes may be relieved to learn a seriously simple kitchen hack that keeps leftover liquid from spilling onto the counter.

TikTok user Andrew Gatt shared the trick on the video-sharing app last week while frying up some scrambled eggs on the stove.

After pouring the eggs into the pan, he demonstrated how to put the used bowl back down on the counter without any of the leftover egg dripping down the sides.

'If I pour this egg into this pan and turn it back this way,' he says, gesturing to indicate turning the bowl back upwards in an expected way, 'and put it down on the counter, it's gonna drip down the side'

Andrew’s video focuses in on the stove, and as it begins, he is finishing pouring a bowl of beaten eggs into a skillet.

But before he puts the empty bowl — which just has a bit of raw egg still clinging to it — back on the counter, he pauses to narrate.

‘If I pour this egg into this pan and turn it back this way,’ he says, gesturing to indicate turning the bowl back upwards in an expected way, ‘and put it down on the counter, it’s gonna drip down the side.’

‘And it’s gonna be on the outside,’ he says.

This would me a few droplets of egg — or whatever other liquid a person might have in a bowl after pouring — would end up on the counter and need to be cleaned up.

'If I continue to turn like this, the drip will go back into the bowl,' he says

Here, he demonstrates not setting the bowl back upward, but continuing to turn it until it's entirely upside down, then righting it in the other direction

'I can put it on the counter and I don't have an extra mess to clean up on the counter,' he says, showing how the egg doesn't spill over the rim

TikTok hack claims to prevent kitchen food spills, goes viral

Picture this: Your counter sticky with spilled food. Your dishes caked with drippy residue. Somewhere, an infomercial of your plight plays.

Well, you’ll no longer have to struggle with these issues when cooking, thanks to a TikTok video which extolls the virtues of basic physics in the kitchen.

TikTok user Andrew Gatt has recently gone viral with a video demonstrating how home cooks can avoid kitchen spills after pouring food into another vessel.

To demonstrate the pouring pitfalls, Gatt showed himself pouring scrambled eggs from a bowl into a skillet. He then points to the runoff spilling over the lip of the bowl, which continues to drip.

‘SECRET’ TACO BELL MENU ITEM REVEALED ON TIKTOK REVIVES INTEREST IN DISCONTINUED DISH

Gatt, who tipped the bowl to his left, explains if he tips it back to the right — as most people normally would when pouring — “it’s going to drip” on his counter.

However! In a moment of brilliance, Gatt continues turning the bowl to the left, allowing physics to kick in, and the drippings to fall back into the bowl — and not on the counter, or whatever surface is below.

“How old were you when you learned this life hack?” Gatt writes on the video.

The video has been viewed more than 1.2 million times and has nearly 50,000 likes from, assuming, eager kitchen novices.

Environmentalist creates vertical garden in painted plastic bottles in Jammu – it s viral

In an attempt to reduce environmental pollution using waste management, environmentalist Dr. Nazia Rasool Latifi has begun to create vertical gardens in Jammu using plastic bottles.

“Vertical garden not just reduces environmental pollution but also benefits the nature in many ways. The method helps to conserve water as the plants are vertically arranged to ensure minimum wastage of water,” Latifi told ANI.

She believes that the gardens reduce stress levels and add to the local beauty.

“I had attended a seminar following which I got this idea. I love nature and had the passion to do something so I started with this. I made the vertical garden at Government College for Women in Gandhi Nagar were I was teaching. I have also made a vertical garden at Police Public School, the University of Jammu following which many organisations are approaching me,” she said.

“Drip irrigation is used in the process so that less amount of water is used. Amid COVID-19, when stress is on a healthy environment, I feel that the vertical gardens are a good concept. I also demonstrate the concept to students so that they learn the concept and it can also become a source of income for them,” she added.

In order to make the concept more attractive, plastic bottles are painted with cartoon figures and other illustrations.

Other professors have appreciated the concept and said that this method of gardening would send the message of resource conservation, waste management, and encourage eco-friendly attitudes among the students.

Raj Kumar Rampal, a professor said that this concept should not only be restricted to outdoor, but it can also be used inside homes and offices as well for a fresh and healthy environment.

“We often stress on giving eco-friendly concepts to our students on how to go green. We also teach them judicious use of things and how to reuse waste to conserve resources and reduce pollution. We pour water on the top plant and it drips its way to the plant placed at the bottom, so water is conserved. It is also cost-efficient,” said Rampal.

“I appreciate her efforts and idea for making vertical gardens. It is a very important and interesting concept as the lands are decreasing and there is a need to increase greenery. This concept can also be used to grow medicinal plants and for other utility purposes. In view of COVID-19, when patients need more oxygen, if we bring this concept indoors, we can also get sufficient amounts of oxygen,” he added.

The students have also appreciated the concept and look forward to decorating their college walls with vertical gardens.

“As a Botany student, this concept is of much significance to
