Five facts about Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is here. Many will be celebrating the holiday with margaritas and Mexican food. Here are five facts about the Mexican holiday that you can use to impress your friends.

1)      Despite a common misconception, Cinco de Mayo is not Mexico’s Independence Day. The holiday celebrates the Battle of Puebla, where, against all odds, the Mexicans made a stand against an invading French army in 1862.

2)      Cinco de Mayo is celebrated more in the United States than it is in Mexico, with the exception of the city of Puebla. Mexico holds more of a celebration on its Independence Day, September 16, than it does on Cinco de Mayo.

Need Beyoncé tickets? AmEx and Uber are giving some away

Getting tickets to Beyoncé’s "Formation" World Tour has been harder than getting to the bottom of the “Becky with the good hair” controversy. Most of the shows are sold out. Unless you want to stand alone at one of the shows that still has available tickets, you’re going to have to shell out a couple hundred dollars minimum to nab a spot from which you can worship Queen Bey live.

>> Read more trending stories  

But you might be able to get around that. Wednesday -- when "Formation" kicked off in Miami -- American Express and Uber announced a partnership that gives anyone (not just card members) the chance to win two tickets to one of Beyoncé’s 21 remaining U.S. shows. Here’s how the promotion works:

On the day of the concert in a participating city, you can request the “FORMATION” view in the Uber app, using the promo code FORMATIONAMEX. You can then request a FORMATION ride, and you could receive two tickets and a round-trip UberX ride to the concert in the city. Uber and American Express have both said that the demand will be high, and getting matched with a FORMATION ride isn’t a guarantee of tickets.

>> Does Beyonce's 'Lemonade' allude to a rocky relationship with Jay-Z?

Sure, the chances of hitting the Beyoncé/Uber jackpot probably aren’t great, but it may be more likely than you being able to come up with enough money to buy your own tickets and transport to the concert, at this point. As much as it would probably feel worth it at the time, the aftermath of blowing your budget to see Beyoncé will probably be as unpleasant as it is to be Rachel Roy right now.

There’s some consolation for people who request these Uber rides and don’t end up getting Formation tickets: If you happen to have an American Express credit card and are enrolled in their Membership Rewards program, you can earn two times the rewards points when you pay for an Uber ride with your card.

American Express isn’t the only credit card with this sort of deal. It’s always smart to check with your credit card issuer to see if they offer any discounts with a certain service or if you can maximize your rewards with certain purchases. Of course, spending for the sake of credit card rewards can be a dangerous strategy, because credit card debt is expensive and high credit card balances can kill your credit score. You can keep tabs on yours by getting your free credit report summary every 30 days on Credit.com.

A man got a big surprise when he went fishing with his child in the murky waters of Louisiana.

While filming on his GoPro at Lake Fausse Point State Park, Lance Burgos thought he hooked a catfish on his fishing line but instead caught a huge alligator.

“Oh my God! That’s a big (expletive) gator!” Burgos screams in the video as he pulls up the reptile. He is then seen pedaling for dear life on his boat as his child behind him is heard crying.

At one point in the video, the child tries to grab the fishing line before the gator appears, which got a lot of viewers’ attention.

“So glad you and your child are safe,” commented one viewer. “Directing your child to be careful and not reach out to grab the line was a wise move!”

On Sunday, Burgos posted the heart-pounding footage to YouTube, where it has already received more than 2.7 million views.

“Kayaking and camping at Lake Fausse Point State Park, St. Martinville, La., will never be the same,” Burgos wrote as a caption for the video.

Four sea turtles had emergency surgery performed on them at the Palm Beach Zoo on Tuesday afternoon after three were found with tumors and another was hit by a boat.

“Five-O” went into surgery after being hit by a boat in Boca Raton, where he suffered fractures. Doctors gave him the name “Five-O” after the quick response from law enforcement following his accident.

The other three turtles -- “Sprinkles,” “Wreath,” and “Poptart” -- had tumor removal surgery, which doctors said is common because of pollution and water quality issues. The surgeries lasted for four hours with a return to the water anticipated once they heal.

Five endangered Loggerhead sea turtles were airlifted from Massachusetts to Miami in January after being found in cool waters while the green sea turtle was classified as a threatened species this week.

With the 2016 season approaching, 2015 was a record year for sea turtles with 15,261 nests recorded.

Rolling Stones Cuba concert was mostly politics-free

The Rolling Stones have officially brought their music to Cuba with a performance that seemed mostly free of a political agenda.

>> Read more trending stories 

For years, many Cubans listened to bands like the Stones in secret because their music didn't line up with the government ideology. But Friday's massive, free performance was meant to show that Cuba is opening up to the rest of the world.

According to the band's announcement, the concert at Ciudad Deportiva de la Habana was "the first open-air concert in the country by a British rock band."

Frontman Mick Jagger and company mostly avoided any political statement during the show, except for acknowledging the band's presence in the country was a sign "times are changing."

Some estimates say nearly half a million people attended the celebratory performance.

The event capped off a week where a sitting U.S. president visited the country in nearly 90 years.

One concertgoer told The Guardian there is a feeling among Cubans that "something good" is happening.

But not everyone saw the concert as a sign of good things to come. One democracy activist said the government was using it as a symbol of an "opening that isn't really taking place."

And at least one world leader did take issue with the event — the pope, though it wasn't because of politics. The BBC reports he asked the Stones to postpone the concert because it conflicted with Good Friday.

The concert was a part of the Rolling Stones' America Latina Ole tour that is traveling through Central and South America.

They have also started a push to donate musical instruments and equipment to benefit Cuban musicians across all music genres.
