Mother Dies On Mother’s Day Saving Teenage Daughter’s Life

A mother in Long Island showed the depths of her love on Mother?s Day by giving up her life to save her daughter?s.

Diane Aluska, 55, of Lindenhurst, New York, was walking with her 16-year-old daughter, Jenna, when a Toyota Corolla barreled toward them in reverse.

The driver, 80-year-old Ann Riolo, had just backed out of a bakery parking lot. She hit the accelerator without realizing the car was still in reverse.

Instead of going forward, the car went backwards, jumped the curb and headed toward the two women, according to the New York Post.

Aluska managed to push Jenna nearly out of the car?s path, but the vehicle slammed the mother of three up against the wall of a fire station, according to the New York Daily News.

?Diane Aluska ? put her hand on her daughter?s shoulder and attempted to push her out of the way,? Detective Sgt. James Murphy told the New York Post.

Aluska, Jenna and Riolo were all taken to a local hospital. Jenna and Riolo suffered only non-life-threatening injuries, but Aluska died.

?I have no doubt that she saved her daughter?s life,? Murphy told Newsday. 

Riolo?s car was impounded for a safety check, according to NBC New York. However, police said the crash appeared to be accidental so no one has been charged.

Kenneth Aluska told the New York Post that his daughter was unaware of her mom?s passing as of Sunday evening.

?She doesn?t know,? he said. ?Me and her brother have to tell her.?

Netflix’s ‘GLOW’ Trailer Is An ’80s Wrestling-Filled Dream

Get ready to meet the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling.

Netflix?s new show ?GLOW,? is a comedy that centers around aspiring actress Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie) in 1980s Los Angeles. She stumbles into the field of women?s wrestling while looking for ?real parts? that will also pay the bills. 

The trailer dropped Monday morning, and the show looks like it will be something along the lines of ?Xanadu? meets ?Flashdance? meets ?Whip It.? Think glitter, spandex, hairspray, and snark galore.

?In addition to working with 12 Hollywood misfits, Ruth also has to compete with Debbie Eagan (Betty Gilpin) a former soap actress who left the business to have a baby, only to be sucked back into work when her picture perfect life is not what it seems. And at the wheel is Sam Sylvia (Marc Maron), a washed-up, B-movie director who now must lead this group of women on the journey to wrestling stardom,? reads the show?s synopsis.

The show was inspired by ?GLOW,? a professional women?s wrestling TV series that ran from 1986 to 1990 that was, in turn, inspired by Barbella?s, Jackie Stallone?s women-only gym.

In this iteration of the show, we get delights like Brie and Marc Maron, whose delivery in the over two-minute trailer is biting and perfectly timed ? a sign of good things to come.

Though we?ve already grown to know and love the acerbic wit of the show?s executive producer, Jenji Kohan, in her other Netflix project, ?Orange Is the New Black.? Additionally, ?Mr. Robot? fans will be pleased to see the lovely Sunita Mani in the role of Arthie.

Ten episodes of ?GLOW? are slated to debut on Netflix on June 23.

Vladimir Putin Shows Off His Musical Skills On A Piano In China

We?re guessing he didn?t take requests.

Russian President Vladimir Putin showed off his piano skills in Beijing Sunday, playing a few tunes while waiting for Chinese President Xi Jinping at a state guesthouse, The New York Times reported.

Putin tickled the ivories with a pair of 1950s, Soviet-era tunes, Vasily Solovyov-Sedoi?s ?Evening Song? and Tikhon Khrennikov?s ?Moscow Windows,? the Times noted.

He?s played the piano before in public ? and his performance shouldn?t be too surprising. The Russian leader isn?t shy about displaying himself as a macho renaissance man, also participating in judo, ice hockey and horseback riding ? the latter sometimes shirtless.

Putin was in Beijing to discuss a $1 billion economic plan called ?One Belt, One Road? that is intended to benefit dozens of countries, according to news outlets.

Twitter was amused by the president?s performance.
