(CNN) — We’ve all seen it: an otherwise exceptional hotel gets a one-star Yelp or TripAdvisor rating from a grumpy guest because of bad weather.

Even though there’s nothing a destination can do to guarantee perfect weather during vacation season, the Italian island of Elba — best known for being where Napoleon was exiled toward the end of his life — has a new program called “Elba No Rain,” where guests on the island during May can get their night’s hotel fee refunded if it rains.
According to Elba’s official tourism site, “the overnight stay is free for days when there is rainfall for more than two hours between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.”

To qualify for the deal, guests must be staying at one of an approved list of local inns and guesthouses that are participating in the program.

“Tour operators tell us that weather forecasts of a rainy weekend can lead to a drop in bookings and attendance of over 20%,” Claudio Della Lucia, tourism coordinator for the island, told CNN via email.

“The #ElbaNoRain initiative wants to be a concrete assurance to guests that, in the very rare case of a day with steady rain, they can still enjoy everything that the island has to offer without paying a euro for accommodation.

“It’s a pilot project for the month of May, but considering the numerous subscriptions, we’re considering to apply it also for the autumn.”

May tends to be shoulder season, so it’s generally cooler and less crowded than during peak summertime. Elba — sadly, no connection to the actor Idris — is popular with citizens of Italy, who flock there in August.

Elba is located off of the coast of Tuscany, one of Italy’s most popular tourist regions, in the Ligurian Sea, just east of Corsica.

Most visitors arrive there via ferry from the coastal town of Piombino, but there’s also an island airport that can take in small planes from Milan, Florence, Pisa and other Italian cities.

So, what is there to do while you enjoy that guaranteed gorgeous weather?

The island is beloved for its beaches, but it’s also worth visiting the Napoleonic Residences where the emperor lived in exile and exploring the island’s mining history and ancient ruins, some of which date to the Etruscan era.

That said, of the nearly two dozen trailers released by the five major networks during this Upfronts week, there are some clear standouts.

“Stumptown” (ABC)

With more than 2.8 million views on its YouTube trailer in just two days, there’s no denying Cobie Smulders’ return to a starring role on network television is welcomed. The “How I Met Your Mother” alum will call upon the action skills honed through her years in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for this role, where she plays an assertive and sharp-witted army veteran Dex Parios. The series is based on a graphic novel series of the same name.

“Mixed-ish’ (ABC)

This “black-ish” spin-off centered on the origin story of Rainbow Johnson (Tracee Ellis Ross) seems to share all the qualities that make the mothership a charming must-watch, but it could see additional benefits from its ’80s-set premise. Hey, it’s working out well for “The Goldbergs.”

“Sunnyside” (NBC)

Creator Michael Schur, the man behind “Parks and Recreation” and “The Good Place,” tells the story of a former NYC Councilman (Kal Penn), who tries to reconnect with his community after his downfall by helping a group of diverse individuals become American citizens.

“Batwoman” (The CW)

Starring Ruby Rose as Gotham’s newest vigilante Kate Kane, the first series centered on a LGBTQ+ superhero appears to lean into the darkness of the Batman universe. This will likely set it apart from other shows on the network like “The Flash” and the glossier world of “Supergirl,” who it shares Sunday nights with on CW’s fall schedule.

“BH90210” (FOX)

The original cast of “Beverly Hills, 90210” returns to TV as what Fox has called “heightened versions of themselves” in this serialized drama “that is inspired by their real lives and relationships.” Time will tell, however, whether this non-reboot reboot will play well with fans of the original series. For now, it’s certainly building buzz thanks to natural curiosity.

“Prodigal Son” (FOX)

This creepy drama recalls previous serial killer shows like “The Following.” That’s part of the appeal. In this one, Tom Payne (“The Walking Dead”) plays the son of a convicted serial killer (Michael Sheen), who grew up to be a criminal profiler.

“Broke” (CBS)

CBS alum Pauley Perrette takes a stab at comedy in this show about a rich couple who has to move in with a relative after losing their fortune. She is joined on the cast by “Jane the Virgin” favorite Jaime Camil, who wastes no time coming back to TV. Thank goodness.
HPE (HPE) announced it will buy Cray (CRAY) for $1.3 billion. Cray’s stock shot up more than 17% Friday.
Cray briefly achieved pop-culture fame in the 1990s when author Michael Crichton wrote “Jurassic Park.” In the 1990 novel, four Cray X-MP supercomputers powered the theme park’s DNA sequencer that brought dinosaurs back to life. In the 1993 film, Jurassic Park’s DNA sequencing lab was powered by Cray computers in the background.
The Cray X-MP supercomputer

Although never quite a household name, Cray brought supercomputing into the modern era. Seymour Cray, known as “the father of supercomputing,” founded Cray Research in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, in 1972.
The first Cray computer, the Cray-1, was less than a thousandth the speed of an iPhone XS and had 8 MB of memory (0.2% of the iPhone’s memory). It cost just under $9 million ($33 million in today’s dollars, adjusted for inflation).
But Cray computers were a game-changer. They revolutionized weather forecasting simulations decades ago, and they continue to predict weather today. NOAA’s weather-prediction system is built by Cray, Dell (DELL) and IBM (IBM). Supercomputers are also used for national defense and scientific research, among other projects.
The human genome was first processed on a supercomputer (years after “Jurassic Park” predicted DNA sequencing), and University of Illinois scientists used a Cray computer to build the world’s first genetic sequencing machine that can be used in hospitals.
Cray has another tie-in to “Jurassic Park”: The movie’s dinosaurs were built on computers made by Silicon Graphics Inc., which bought Cray in 1996. The company was sold to Tera Computer Co. in 2000, which changed its name to Cray.
Now headquartered in Seattle, Cray is in the process of building the fastest supercomputer ever. The $600 million machine will live at the US Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. It will be capable of 1.5 quintillion (billion billion) calculations per second. That’s 9.4 billion times faster than the Cray-1 and 50 times faster than the next-fastest supercomputer.
Cray’s new supercomputer, nicknamed “Frontier,” will be used for scientific research, renewable energy innovation, and national security, according to the Energy Department.

HPE said it is buying Cray to support its data analysis business for corporations.
“Cray is a global technology leader in supercomputing and shares our deep commitment to innovation,” said Antonio Neri, HPE’s CEO, in a statement. “We will have the opportunity to drive the next generation of high performance computing and play an important part in advancing the way people live and work.”
HPE’s stock was up 1% Friday.
Elton John surprised fans at a party for his upcoming biopic, “Rocketman,” while at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday night. But it wasn’t just John hitting the stage. He also brought out Taron Egerton, who plays John in the film.
And of course the duo performed his hit 1972 single “Rocket Man.”
As for John’s thoughts about Egerton’s performance, he said in a video played at the premiere, “To be honest with you I was blown away. I was very moved. I cried the first time I saw it and I cried a lot this time.”
The film chronicles John’s rise to international stardom and the bumps along the way. It also features some of the singer’s most famous concert moments, including his show at Dodger Stadium in 1975.
The film also stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Jamie Bell and Richard Madden and hits theaters May 31.
Read the ruling here:

The Missouri Senate passed a bill early Thursday that prohibits abortions after eight weeks of pregnancy.

The bill, HB 126, is known as the “Missouri Stands for the Unborn Act.” It bans abortions after a heartbeat is detected. It allows exceptions for medical emergencies but not for pregnancies caused by rape or incest.

Many women often aren’t aware they’re pregnant in the first eight weeks.

The bill passed the GOP-controlled Senate 24-10. All of the “yay” votes were from Republican senators.

What happens next: The bill has to go back to the state House for one more vote before it goes to GOP Gov. Mike Parson.

Parson has voiced his support for the legislation, saying it would make Missouri “one of the strongest pro-life states” in the United States.

“I made a promise to all Missourians that I would continue advocating and promoting a culture of life here in Missouri,” Parson said at a news conference on Wednesday.

In a 2-1 ruling, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals held that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program’s rescission was “arbitrary and capricious” under federal law in part because the Department of Homeland Security “failed to give a reasoned explanation” for the change in policy.
The Trump administration’s move to rescind the program was already put on hold by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, which upheld in November a nationwide injunction allowing DACA to remain in effect.
The Department of Justice has a pending request with the Supreme Court to take up an appeal, but the justices have declined to do so, perhaps because they are waiting for the issue to percolate in the courts below.
Judge Albert Diaz, a President Barack Obama appointee, wrote Friday’s majority opinion and was joined by Judge Robert King, a President Bill Clinton appointee.
Judge Julius Richardson, a President Donald Trump appointee, writing in dissent said, “we the Judicial Branch have a narrowly circumscribed role.”
“It is not our place to second-guess the wisdom of the discretionary decisions made by the other Branches,” he wrote.
Researchers at Nationwide Children’s Hospital in in Columbus, Ohio analyzed suicide rates of US kids and teens ages 10 to 19 between 1975 and 2016 using the Wide-ranging Online Data for Epidemiologic Research database, run by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In that period, there were more than 85,000 suicides in kids and teens, with 80% in boys and 20% in girls. The rates of suicide peaked in 1993 and had been on the decline until 2007, when they again started to climb, according to the findings, published Friday in JAMA.
Although boys were 3.8 times more likely than girls to kill themselves over the 40-year study period, the gap is rapidly narrowing. Starting in 2007, the rates of suicide for girls 10 to 14 increased 12.7% per year, compared with 7.1% for boys the same age. A similar trend was seen for teens 15 to 19, with rates of suicide going up 7.9% for girls and 3.5% for boys.
Boys 15 to 19 continued to take their own lives using firearms at far greater rates than girls, but the rates of hanging and suffocation in girls approached those of boys.
More young people, especially girls, are attempting suicide by poisoning, study says

Suicide is the second leading cause of death in kids and teens ages 10 to 19 in the United States after accidents and unintentional injuries, according to the CDC. Rates of suicide have historically been higher in boys than in girls across all age groups.
Girls turning to more lethal means is cause for “great concern,” explained lead author Donna Ruch, research scientist at Nationwide Children’s Hospital, adding that girls continue to attempt suicide at higher rates and the shift toward more lethal methods could have dire consequences for the rates of completed suicide in this group.
The study was not designed to determine the reasons behind the troubling trends, explained Dr. Joan Luby, a child and adolescent psychiatrist at the Washington University School of Medicine, and Sarah Kertz, a clinical psychologist at Southern Illinois University, in a commentary published alongside the study in JAMA.
But given the short period of time over which the rates of suicide have spiked for young girls, Luby and Kertz point to social media as a likely contributor.

Girls may be more vulnerable to the negative effects of social media

“Compared with boys, girls use social media more frequently and are more likely to experience cyberbullying,” Luby and Kertz wrote.
Girls who are depressed also elicit more negative responses from their friends on social media than boys, they added.

Combined, they say, these findings suggest that the negative effects of social media may be stronger on girls and may provide one explanation for why young girls are more vulnerable to suicidal thoughts and behaviors.
Yet social media may be just one piece of the puzzle.

The role of societal rules and expectations

“We know that certain societal rules and expectations for women can be associated with higher rates of mental health issues and suicide rates,” said Dr. Barbara Robles-Ramamurthy, child and adolescent psychiatrist at the Long School of Medicine at UT Health San Antonio, who was not involved in the study. “Then you add a possible biological component — hormones — and a genetic predisposition.”

Another reason for the rise in depression and suicidal behaviors for both boys and girls may be more stress and pressure being placed on kids, said Dr. Gene Beresin, executive director of the Clay Center for Young Healthy Minds at Massachusetts General Hospital and professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, who also was not involved in the study.
“Kids are feeling more pressure to achieve, more pressure in school, and are more worried about making a living than in previous years,” he said.
In isolation, none of these factors has been proven to lead to an increase in suicidal behaviors and ultimately suicide, but taken together, a pattern begins to emerge, Beresin said.

Recognizing warning signs in children and teens

Mental illness — especially when it comes to depression and anxiety — can be silent or manifest in ways parents would not expect, Robles-Ramamurthy said. In addition to sadness, depression in kids and teens can manifest as anger and irritability.
“It’s very normal for your child to start getting a little more moody and defiant,” she said of the teenage years. “But if you start seeing drastic changes, their academic performance is declining, they’re not spending as much time with family or isolating themselves, those are big red flags.”
If those behaviors are present, Robles-Ramamurthy recommends asking teens clearly whether they feel depressed or have considered hurting themselves or ending their lives. Asking these questions directly does not increase the risk of suicide, she added.
Westbrook has been under much scrutiny since her feud with fellow YouTube star James Charles.
In a slightly more than 18-minute-long video posted Thursday called “Why I Did It,” the 37-year-old Halo Beauty founder said she was astounded at how much attention her issues with Charles, 19, has drawn.
“All of this has been way, way, way bigger than I think anyone could have imagined,” she said. “I didn’t think it would get to this magnitude. I didn’t think it was possible.”
The saga started in April when Charles posted an ad for Sugar Bear Hair supplements to his Instagram Story during Coachella.
That proved to be problematic since Sugar Bear Hair is a huge competitor of Halo Beauty, the brand belonging to Westbrook.
Westbrook has been a mentor and close friend to Charles, and she accused the teen of being unsupportive.
He tried to make amends by apologizing to Westbrook in a statement posted to his Instagram Story.
But Westbrook apparently wasn’t appeased and posted a 43-minute video to YouTube explaining the feud and her decision to end her friendship with Charles.
The video, in which she accused Charles of spreading lies about her and sexually manipulating men (Charles identifies as gay), quickly went viral.
Charles apologized again to Westbrook and her husband in a YouTube video a week ago and addressed the points she had made in her video.
“Most of my career over the past few years has been about me making mistakes and trying to learn and grow from them. I haven’t always done the best job of that, I can admit that,” Charles said. “But I have always tried.”
Westbrook has received tons of support, while Charles has lost millions of subscribers, something she said surprised her because “I thought that I would be the one that would take the hit.”
In her new video, Westbrook became emotional several times and said she has been disturbed by the fallout.
“I do really want the hate to stop,” she said. “I want the picking sides, and the abusive memes and the language, and all of that, and I really hope on both sides it can stop. That’s not why I made the video.”
Westbrook said she was trying to get a message across to Charles — whom she said she still loves — about what she viewed as his problematic behavior.
“This was really a wake-up call, and it was me trying to reach someone who I found completely unreachable,” she said. “I had been trying to deliver the same message so many times because this wasn’t just about one thing.”
(CNN) — Held every June to honor the legacy of the LGBTQ movement and the event that started it all, the 1969 Stonewall riots, Pride is a season to celebrate resilience, resistance and the vast spectrum of sexual and gender diversity.

However, Pride events, which often consist of parties at gay bars and a big parade, remain incredibly inaccessible to disabled, deaf or hard-of-hearing, blind, neurodiverse (neurologically atypical, including those on the autism spectrum) and people with intellectual or developmental disabilities, and little has been done to make them more inclusive.

From the length of parade routes, to uneven grounds, summertime temperatures, crowds and the lack of disabled seating areas, interpreters and wheelchairs, it’s almost like Pride parades were made to keep disabled people out.

Parties are no better, with many hosted in inaccessible gay bars that don’t have ramps, elevators, interpreters or staff who are versed in the rights of disabled patrons. For these reasons, many disabled members of the LGBTQ community are forced to sit out Pride month because too often, we literally can’t even get in through the front door.

Keep in mind that marching means different things to different people..

“Accessibility is often an afterthought, if even a thought at all,” Annie Segarra, a queer Latinx YouTuber with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, a connective tissue disorder, told me over email.

While accessibility isn’t binary and what is accessible to one disabled person can mean something completely different to the next, the good news is that making spaces and events as accessible as possible is pretty easy, and it’s 2019, so there really shouldn’t be any excuses, especially since it is the law in the United States and many other countries.

“You just have to remember we want to be in community too,” queer writer Shivani Seth, who has PTSD and sensory sensitivities, explains.

And she’s one of many who share a similar mindset.

“The very nature of Pride events, particularly parades, makes them pretty inaccessible,” Alaina Leary, the editor of Equally Wed magazine, who lives with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, says.

Most parade routes rarely, if ever change, meaning that one section of the respective location is overflowing with attendees, law enforcement and tourists, making busy city centers obstacle zones for disabled people the day of the parade.

Bri M., the executive producer of the Power Not Pity podcast, which focuses on the lives of people of color with disabilities, described New York City’s landmark Pride parade as “torturous and wildly unsafe” because of the crowds.

“I’ve heard of disabled people getting knocked down, stepped over, [or] had people lean on their wheelchairs,” Dominick Evans, a trans-masculine hard of hearing filmmaker with Spinal Muscular Atrophy elaborated over email. “People will just stand in your way and you will be stuck. It’s a real lack of body autonomy and a whole lot of rudeness,” he added.

Pride performances that take place on one or several stages are very much the heart of the season, where drag queens, singers and dancers get to do their thing, but unfortunately, most parades don’t even have disability seating areas, and the ones that do may not have accessible stages, sending a message that disabled talent and speakers aren’t welcome.

Seating and rest areas also need to be bigger and located near exits and stages; there should be more than one. They need to be shaded or have a cooling system; they need to have interpreters; they should offer donor wheelchairs and scooters, and there shouldn’t be anything blocking their range of vision.

Seth recommends a simple solution: bleachers. Add some lifts and fans and it would be a perfect area, especially for solo Pride participants to relax and meet each other.

It’s a good idea, and not just for disabled people, to host Pride parades in differing locations, so that not everyone has to commute to one part of town every year, and to concentrate them in smaller towns or neighborhoods with more space.

How about we forget about parades for a minute and organize more Pride picnics, or block parties, brunches, hikes, bike rides, film festivals and more? Can we just have a Pride stroll, emphasis on “roll”?

I doubt anyone at the Stonewall uprising wanted us to trudge through the city for miles on a hot summer day to honor their legacies, but as long as they continue, parade organizers should provide temporary wheelchairs and scooters as well as shuttles to seating areas.

It’s actually pretty common for a lot of LGBTQ pride-goers to skip the parade because Pride parties are where it’s at, but they present a whole host of other impediments for disabled guests.

Every employee at this newly opened coffee shop is fluent in American Sign Language in order to better serve the large deaf community in Washington, DC.

Besides the obvious ADA accessible entrances and bathrooms that too many bars lack, there’s also strobe lights and loud music, which can be very distressing for people on the autistic spectrum, who have seizures or other sensory issues.

Videos are shown that don’t feature captions or speakers will address the crowd without the aid of sign language interpreters.

“My favorite local gay bar has two floors but no elevator,” Segarra, who is a semi-ambulatory wheelchair user, told me. “For me, climbing up a staircase can be as risky and painful as climbing a mountain barefoot,” she said.

Almost all the disabled people I spoke with described the loneliness they felt after pushing their limits and still leaving Pride events in pain and isolation. “I’ve shown up a couple of times to make comment,” Segarra added, “[but] nothing has changed in the past five years.”

The great thing about non-parade Pride events is that they can grant more leeway in how they’re organized, as Pride boards can be insular and difficult to get into if you’re not a business owner or a politician.

If the venue you’re renting doesn’t have ADA-accessible bathrooms, then rent portable toilets or ramps for entrances. If you’re going to have flashing lights and loud noises in most of the space, keep at least one quiet, scent-free room for people to escape to.

Most importantly, hire disabled people. We should be on Pride boards and organizing committees and event teams. You can hire disability consultants or delegate entire access teams with both disabled people and allies in them to make sure everyone feels safe and welcomed, and you can always consult this checklist.

The good news is, more and more people are getting the message.

WorldPride’s centerpiece event, the march, has accessible seating that’s already available to book online well in advance, and other events are mentioning inclusivity up front as well.
Multiple seating options make it more likely that people of different ability levels can feel included.

Above all, don’t wait for disabled people to say something online or elsewhere to make accommodations just for them and just for that day—accessibility should be practiced always and everywhere, and especially at Pride. As Dominick Evans put it, “We are here, so make space for us.” It’s that simple.

Even if you’re not an organizer, there’s so much non-disabled people can do to make Pride more welcoming and inclusive to us. “I would highly recommend abled Pride participants to be engaged in the conversation about accessibility with disabled people,” Segarra says.

Follow the #SuckItAbleism or #AbledsAreWeird hashtags on social media to see what we’re talking about, then follow some organizations and disabled accounts on there to stay in the know. “Learn what to look for in regards to access, learn what inaccessibility looks like, and be vocal when you are witness to it,” Segarra adds.

Some basic crowd etiquette like not blocking or shoving people and watching where you’re going would also go a long way, too.

For disabled, blind, deaf/hard-of-hearing, neurodiverse and intellectually disabled people, we already face enormous obstacles in using public space, navigating the medical health system and with outright discrimination.

For the LGBT among that group, living with multiple marginalizations can make every day feel like work. Pride can be a time that reminds us that there is nothing shameful about who we are or how our bodies function or appear to others, but for too many of us, it is yet another reminder of how we are left behind.

“Pride started off as a riot led by trans women of color,” Bri M. told me. “Let’s take that same revolutionary spirit and make pride more accessible.” When you venture out this Pride season to celebrate another year of being queer, remember to be intentional about prioritizing accessibility for all.

“Disability justice happens when we all move together,” Bri M. added.
