How to get the Disney+ bundle with ESPN+ and the ad-free version of Hulu
Hulu/Disney+/ESPN+ On Tuesday, November 12, Disney launched its new streaming service, Disney+.  Disney+ offers two subscription options: $6.99/month, or a slightly cheaper $69.99/year ($5.83/month). Additionally, Disney+ offers a combined deal with ESPN+ and Hulu, allowing users to combine all three streaming services for $12.99/month (a $17.97/month value).  The three-service bundle includes Hulu's basic plan, which includes ads, but we'll walk you through how to combine Disney+ and ESPN+ with Hulu's ad-free plan, which we recommend over the basic plan.  Product Embed: Product Name: Disney+ Monthly Subscription Service Card Type: small Width: 100% Height: 150%Product Embed: Product Name: Hulu Streaming Service Card Type: small Width: 100% Height: 150% At just $6.99 per month, Disney+ is as nostalgic as it is affordable (in comparison to many other streaming services). Not only does Disney's new streaming service offer exclusive programming from Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, and National Geographic, it is also stocked with plenty of old favorites.  As if the launch of Disney+ isn't exciting enough on its own, the streaming service offers a bundle with ESPN+ and Hulu's basic plan for an additional $6 ($12.99 total). Although the deal involves the version of Hulu with ads included, there is a workaround to include ad-free Hulu for an extra $6 per month. You'll still save $5 per month by signing up for all three services this way compared with signing up for each of them separately. See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:28 gifts for him that you can get on Amazon — all under $100The Polar Ignite is the GPS fitness watch I've been looking for to replace my aging Fitbit — here's what it's like to useI got my teeth straightened in 5 months using SmileDirectClub's invisible aligners — here's what the process was like from start to finish

A couple had an Olive Garden wedding complete with a late-night breadstick bar
Jeanne Sherman Photography Michigan couple Samantha Roberts and Jeff Gilleland celebrated their love with an Olive Garden-themed wedding, complete with a late-night breadstick bar.  Also on the menu was Olive Garden's bruschetta, mushroom ravioli, spaghetti with meatballs, and more.  Gilleland proposed to Roberts while they were on Olive Garden's Pasta Passport to Italy trip, which he won in 2017.  The couple also took their engagement pictures at an Olive Garden.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. From their first dates to their proposal and engagement photo shoot, Olive Garden has always played a huge part in Samantha Roberts and Jeff Gilleland's love story.  So when it came time to finally tie the knot, the Michigan couple knew they had to make Olive Garden a part of their wedding as well.  The couple surprised their guests with an Olive Garden menu, including a late-night breadstick bar complete with marinara and Alfredo dipping sauces.  Insider spoke to Roberts and Gilleland about their love for each other and for Olive Garden, as well as their breadstick-fueled wedding day. Samantha Roberts and Jeff Gilleland first met on a blind date. Jeanne Sherman Photography "At the time, Samantha's roommate's mother was also my physical therapist for all my sports-related injuries," Gilleland told Insider.  "One day, she asked if I was single because she knew the perfect girl, and thought we would be a good match for each other. Turns out she was right!"  Both Roberts and Gilleland grew up with Olive Garden, and often went there on their dates. Jeanne Sherman Photography "For Samantha, it was a time to have a nice dinner with her mother or grandparents," Gilleland said. "For me, I traveled for soccer quite a bit and we would always go as a team. It was a time for all of us friends and family to have a nice dinner and relax together."  And when they first started dating, Roberts and Gilleland often met at Olive Garden.  "When you love the chicken parm as much as we do, it becomes a pretty easy decision where to eat," the couple told Insider.  Gilleland was one of 50 people to win Olive Garden's Pasta Passport to Italy in 2017, and he knew it would be the perfect place to propose to Roberts. Jeanne Sherman Photography That year, Olive Garden offered 50 customers the chance to purchase a seven-night, all-inclusive trip to Italy for two — along with an eight-week unlimited pasta pass at Olive Garden — at the cost of just $200.  After Gilleland won the trip, he decided to reach out to the organizers and see if they had recommendations for where he could propose to Roberts in Italy.  "They looped in the rest of the Olive Garden team and we hatched a fantastic plan for a proposal at a vineyard in Tuscany," Gilleland added.  See the rest of the story at Business InsiderSee Also:The engagement ring styles everyone will be wearing in 2020, according to jewelry experts18 wedding trends you'll see everywhere in 2020Teen daughters decided to 'pre-create' a wedding day so they could dance with their father after he was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer

Pokémon Sword and Shield’s camping is perfectly fluffy
Part of the allure of Pokémon games is growing attached to each new creature you catch. Games like Pokémon X and Y, Sun and Moon, and Let’s Go incorporate some sort of bonding, from giving your pals a good pat to feeding and cleaning them up. In Pokémon Sword and Shield, downtime doesn’t just happen with one member of your team; it happens with the whole gang at once with the game’s camping feature. When you’re out in the wild and between towns, camping is an easy way to quickly revive and refresh your party. Sword and Shield feature a curry cooking option where you choose from berries and other food items you’ve collected to create new recipes. Once you’ve laid out your ingredients, you fan campfire flames and stir the pot via motion control of frantic button mashing to perfect your dinner. Cook a good meal, and your team will gain experience, regain their health, and bond. You can start fresh without having to rush back to the nearest Pokémon Center every few battles while you level grind. Campsites also serve as a way to get face time with your pokémon. Your party wanders and mingles among themselves as you watch; a quick whistle will usually bring them running. While talking is an easy way to check up on how they’re feeling, you can also toss a ball or wave a feather wand around to play (a good reminder that you’re still traveling with a flock of fancy pets). Camping in Sword and Shield isn’t a deep or especially robust system. You cook and you do some basic interacting with your party. I could have gone the entire game without needing to chuck a ball over and over for my electric corgi. But having the option is what I like most about Pokémon games: brief moments built on my own attachments to fantastical creatures I’d never know otherwise.

Willy Kurniawan/Reuters Donald Trump Jr., the president's eldest son, and George Conway, husband to the president's senior adviser Kellyanne Conway, attacked each other on Twitter amid the impeachment hearings on Friday.  The spat began when Trump Jr. tweeted that three veteran diplomats who testified in the public impeachment hearings this week deserve to be fired by the president. Conway replied, "Each of Taylor, Kent, and Yovanovitch has more intelligence, talent, integrity, decency, honor, and patriotism in each of their fingers than you and your father will ever have."  Trump Jr. hit back, accusing Conway of humiliating his wife by regularly attacking the president all for the purpose of "building his own brand."

"Hope literacy," "functional denial" and other ways to keep going in this difficult time
Earth Island News's interview with climate scientist and activist Susanne Moser is excellent, especially on how "hope literacy" (understanding different the flavors of hope) and "functional denial" ("being fully aware and conscious and not denying the gravity of what we’re creating" while still getting the work done) can allow you to retain your mental equilibrium in these difficult and often terrifying times. What's interesting is that I've come to understand uncertainty as a necessary condition for hope. If you're perfectly certain that “It’s going to be fine” or “It’s going to be hell,” you don’t need hope, because you know exactly what’s going to happen. And what people like Trump and other radical right-wingers in particular promise is a kind of certainty: “America is going to be great again, it’s going to be purely white, and we’re going to have great economy and we’re the best.” That’s all a form of certainty. Whereas, “The future is going to look very different, and I can't tell you how, but we’re going to have to go through that together and figure it out and create it — that’s uncertainty, that requires work. It’s very unpopular. Despairing about the Climate Crisis? Read This. [Laurie Mazur/Earth Island News] (Image: Susanne Moser) (Thanks, Dad!) Read the rest

GABRIEL BOUYS/AFP/Getty Images Business Insider teamed up with Jonathan Miller, the president and CEO of the real estate and consulting firm Miller Samuel Inc., to gather a list of the 15 most expensive home sales the US has seen since November 2009. Home sales on the list include single-family homes and condos and range from $99 million to nearly $240 million.
