Ever Wonder How a Class Action Works? We Talked to an Expert to Find Out


The numbers are always striking.

Honest Co. agreed to pay out more than $ 7 million after a dispute over ingredients.

Another $ 11.2 million is coming from adultery website Ashley Madison after a massively embarrassing security breach revealed customer data.

And a judge ordered that Dish Network pay a whopping $ 61 million for telemarketing calls a contractor made on behalf of the company to people on the National Do Not Call Registry.

If you qualify for even one of these class-action lawsuits, seeing settlement agreements in the millions can make you feel like you’ve won the lottery, at least in the beginning. But if you’ve ever received a payout, you know that in most cases, by the time your check arrives in the mail, your cut of the pie can feel pretty insignificant.

To understand why, you need to understand a bit more about the life cycle of a class-action lawsuit, and the difference between how we use some terms colloquially and what they really mean to legal professionals.

First, let’s start with the phrase “class-action lawsuit.”

A lawsuit is classified as a class action when a group of people sue the same company, accusing it of the same wrongdoing. In a traditional lawsuit, a single person or company sues another person or company.

The phrase “class-action lawsuit” is often used in newspapers, on TV and even by us at The Penny Hoarder from the moment a lawsuit is filed against a company. But the lawsuit isn’t technically a class action that early in the process, according to corporate attorney Jeff Lieser.

“You’re basically just putting the defendants on notice that you will be seeking to have a class certified,” he said. “Just because I decide I want to file a class-action lawsuit and I entitle the complaint a class-action complaint against John Doe for ripping off consumers, that does not make it a class action. It’s up to the judge.”

(Disclosure: Lieser works for the Lieser Skaff Alexander law firm, which handles legal issues for The Penny Hoarder.)

When Is a Class Action Really a Class Action?

In some cases, class certification comes in the early months of a lawsuit. In other cases, that can take years, if it comes at all.

In the Ashley Madison case, class certification happened during the settlement process.

According to Lieser, pretty much every one of those scenarios can be considered normal. When it happens is less important, but the class certification is necessary if anyone other than the person or group handling the legal battle is going to get paid.

And getting a judge to certify a class can be tough.

The prerequisites for a class action in federal court are laid out in Rule 23 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Most states have rules modeled after Rule 23 to govern class-action lawsuits filed in state courts.

Here’s what Rule 23(a) says must be in place before a lawsuit can be certified as class action:

  1. There have to be enough members in the class for it to be impractical for each to file individual lawsuits.
  2. The law has to apply in the same way to each member of the class.
  3. The claims of individuals in the class must be similar, and the company’s defense against each class member must be similar as well.
  4. The class representative — this is the person whose name is usually on the lawsuit as the plaintiff — and their attorney have to be willing to protect the interests of the class.

If all four prerequisites are met, the court moves on to Rule 23(b).

Here, only one of three items must exist for the lawsuit to move forward as a class action. The most common is the final item, Lieser said: The class members’ similarities should be greater than their difference to show that what happened to each person is a common practice of the company being sued.

Of course, if you are considering being the class representative for a class-action lawsuit, you’d have a lawyer to make sure these requirements are met. For most of us, though, we’d be among the unnamed participants waiting to see if it ends in a win at trial or an out-of-court settlement followed by a check.

Why Do Companies Settle and Say They Did Nothing Wrong?

If you’ve ever read even one article about a lawsuit that’s been settled, you have probably read that despite a multimillion-dollar settlement and the promise to change business practices, the company still “denies all wrongdoing.”

If you think this seems contradictory, you’re not alone. But Lieser said the laws governing class-action lawsuits make it so companies can right wrongs without admitting guilt.

“If you’re changing your business practices, people are going to assume that they need to be changed because they were screwed up before or you did something wrong,” Lieser said.

But legally, agreeing to settle and change practices without conceding guilt is allowed.

“That is because courts want to be an agent of change, and they don’t want there to be a disincentive to remedying those things that are out there that can cause harm,” Lieser said. “They don’t want something used against you… The courts want companies to do the right thing.”

That’s why the apparent inconsistency is allowed: The courts don’t want a change in practice or a large settlement to eventually lead to more lawsuits against a company that has just admitted guilt.

OK, There Was a Settlement. When Do You Get Paid?

Close up of hands

Like just about every other question we had about class-action lawsuits, the answer is: “It depends.”

“It’s always going to be years,” Lieser said. “It’s just a matter of how many years. It’s a safe bet that it’s going to be anywhere from two years to 10 years or more in some cases.”

Then, when a case is finally over, the large cash settlements cover much more than consumer payouts.

The money must also cover attorney’s fees, which Lieser said normally hovers around one-third of the settlement, and the cost of informing members of the class that they’re owed money.

That means the bare-bones websites that go up so people can file electronic claims; any ad space purchased in newspapers, online or on TV; the pay for people on hand to answer questions from those trying to see if they qualify for a payout. All of that could come out of the settlement.

“Class actions often get a bad rap for this,” Lieser added.

And depending on the size of the class and the settlement, it could mean just a few dollars, like the Red Bull settlement a few years back, or more than $ 1,000, like the Dish Network case.

The deadline to file a claim is usually stated in the settlement agreement, but in some cases, that can be extended. In the Wells Fargo fake account settlement, for example, the deadline to file was extended to July 7 after the bank failed to properly notify consumers about the settlement.

No matter how long it takes, if you’ve been promised a settlement and you can prove that you qualify, you’ll likely get paid eventually — even if it’s just a few bucks.

‘A Way Out’ Review: Perfectly Paced Cinematic Action Without The Script to Match

Dreamed up by award-winning indie film director turned award-winning indie game developer Josef Fares, A Way Out is a unique cinematic offering relishes in transporting players from lavish set piece to even more lavish set piece.

Despite looking just as polished as your average Naughty Dog adventure, this narrative-led epic is actually the first game to attempt a cinematic, story-driven co-op experience. If that wasn’t impressive enough, it was made by a team of just 15 people.

Ever since its reveal at E3 2017 then, it’s been clear that A Way Out is an incredibly ambitious undertaking. But now that it’s finally here, has Fares and his tiny team managed to deliver upon that promise of a cinema-quality co-op experience?

The answer is both yes and no.

On the one hand, EA’s second foray into indie publishing offers up a perfectly paced and surprisingly varied experience that’s quite unlike anything else, pitting players against everything from deadly crime bosses to unforgiving rapids and a seriously intense game of Connect 4.

Yet, despite consistently being a blast to play, unfortunately, a woefully lacklustre script prevents A Way Out from reaching the giddy heights some may have expected it to.


Leo hangs out in the rec area in prison
Fares and his brother performed all the motion capture for the game, delivering slick animations on a shoe string budget.

Tiny Teams and Big Ambitions

As our thirst to explore sprawling and immersive worlds grows, so do the teams that make them.

Where back in the low polygon PS2 era 40-50 person teams brought us the latest best-selling RPG, now, pulling off a modern cinematic experience like Uncharted 4 requires hundreds of extremely skilled developers. It’s been worth it though, with the latest interactive entertainment giving Hollywood blockbusters a run for their money.

Unsurprisingly, this has led to rapidly rising production costs — and with them many talented mid-tier game studios shutting their doors for good. Sometimes though, it takes a fresh pair of eyes and a hungry creator in order to see (and do) things a little differently.

That’s where A Way Out comes in. It’s a different take — though despite its makers’ filmmaking background, it excels in areas that might surprise you.

Well Scripted action, bad script


Trying to escape jeeps while on motorbikes
From high-speed vehicle chases to white water rafting, A Way Out offers up some pretty spectacular set pieces over the course of its 7 hour run time.

While Fares’ cinematic expertise is immediately evident as the camera swoops seamlessly from one expertly paced action scene to another, whenever the two protagonists open their mouths, we find ourselves immediately yanked out of the experience.

Despite Fares’ making his name in Hollywood and coming from a scriptwriting background, bafflingly, much of the dialogue in A Way Out feels shockingly ham-fisted. The opening hours are especially guilty of this – offering up more halfbaked exchanges and genre clichés than you can shake a Van Damme VHS at.

In other words, for a game selling itself as an engaging cinematic experience, the dialogue often feels disappointingly amateur. Thankfully, this became less of a problem as the story unfolded, but we’re not entirely sure whether that’s because the writing genuinely improved as their journey unfolded, or we simply got Stockholm syndrome.

Still, at least A Way Outs‘ premise sounds Hollywood enough on paper. Taking control of two very different convicts whose paths cross behind bars, one player is put in the shoes of tough guy Leo while the other sees the world through the eyes of the more wary and thoughtful Vincent. With both men desperately seeking their freedom after being framed for different crimes, the two reluctantly agree to work together to find – you guessed it – a way out.

Convicts and Conflicts


Leo and Vincent in prison yard fights
While they’re both embarking on the same story, each player can find themselves experiencing the game’s world very differently.

Where most co-op games see each player experiencing the same story from an identical perspective, interestingly, A Way Out allows both of you to explore your surroundings in your own way. As each character leaves their cell and makes their way towards the rec area in the middle of the heavily guarded penitentiary, players are free to go their own way, taking in the sights as they see fit and talking to whichever guards and inmates they please.

This means that Fares’ latest offers the rarest of things in gaming — something that’s never been done before. Finally being given the freedom to explore a game world as two individuals — rather than just tied together at the hip — makes for a remarkably refreshing and novel co-op experience.

It helps of course, that Leo and Vincent are two very different characters. While most multiplayer games offer up an AI friend, A Way Out is an experience that is only playable with a human partner in tow — and it’s all the better for it. As our two protagonists learned to slowly trust each other and work in sync, the bond between ourselves and our partner quickly mirrored that of our on-screen avatars.

Except with more swearing, and slightly less wooden conversations.

Despite Fares’ insistence that you go on this journey with another human being, he’s aware that time is a precious commodity for most adults and has made one small concession — the implementation of online co-op.  While this is undoubtedly an experience that is enriched by yelling at the person next to you as you leap off of a virtual ravine, getting a friend over to play a seven hour game with you may not be the most practical thing.

Thoughtfully then, buying A Way Out allows you to gift a digital copy to one of your friends.

Swapping Violence for Variety


A game of Connect 4 between Leo and Vincent
Whether its scaling prison walls or enjoying a quiet game of Connect 4, A Way Out is a wonderfully varied experience.

Refreshingly though, this is a narrative-driven game that doesn’t just task you with killing people. Where Uncharted’s cutscenes depicting protagonist Nathan Drake as a loveable goofball feel bafflingly at odds with much of the series’ murderous gameplay, A Way Out ’s two relatable leads rarely take a life over the course of its seven-hour playtime.

More crucially, when they do it’s only because they’re in mortal danger. This may sound like an eye-rolling-ly simple thing, but it’s this kind of thoughtful convergence of narrative and game design that helps make (most) scenes feeling so grounded — even if the dialogue can be pretty ropey.

It’s what you’d expect from convicts on the run. Escaping is their number one priority – not slaughtering cops who are merely doing their jobs.

Yet, it’s not just how combat is used here that should be applauded, but also how sparingly virtual violence is implemented. While there’s certainly fun to be found in mowing down polygonal baddies with a friend at your side, playing a co-op game where combat only made up a small part of the overall experience was a refreshing change of pace.

Is ‘A Way Out’ Any Good?


Each player with a musical intrument
Whether its jamming together on random instruments or hauling each other over prison fences, the fun each player shares together helps to counteract the dodgy dialogue.

Whether its one player keeping a lookout for patrolling prison guards as the other burrows out of their cell, or simply playing basketball with Leo’s son, great care has been taken in order to make sure that no two sections of A Way Out ever feel the same.

Where cinematic gaming experiences usually favour gunplay over character building, it’s great to see Fares and the team at Hazelight make the effort to double down on more original types of gameplay — and one that’s made all the better by an interesting narrative shift that creeps up on you later on in the journey.

Where many game makers struggle to marry their storytelling vision with the unpredictable actions of a single player, the fact that this cinematic-driven interactive opus works as well as it does is a huge achievement. Ropey dialogue may keep this from being a must-play experience, but if you’re looking to embark on a compelling and surprising co-op adventure with a friend, A Way Out is more than worth the price of entry.

EXCLUSIVE: Model Christopher Cates Pens Letter Calling for Action Against Harassment

As the uproar continues over sexual harassment in industries stretching from entertainment to media to finance, the fashion world has remained relatively on the sidelines so far even as numerous models came forward months ago to allege they had been mistreated by photographers, designers and casting agents.
Model Cameron Russell’s Instagram account continues to grow with anonymous individuals posting stories about their mistreatment in the industry. Last October, Terry Richardson was dropped by the leading fashion magazine publishers but only after years of allegations surrounding his behavior, while model Jason Boyce filed a lawsuit against Bruce Weber in December claiming the photographer harassed him. Weber has vigorously denied the claims.
In November, 27-year-old British model Edie Campbell penned an exclusive letter for WWD to the fashion industry in which she said, “We operate within a culture that is too accepting of abuse, in all of its manifestations,” going on to admonish the mainstream media for its silence about the sexual abuse suffered by male models, which she described in her letter as “more complex.”

‘The Commuter’ Review: Liam Neeson’s Least Enjoyable Action Thriller

Liam Neeson has carved out a nice little action hero niche for himself, and The Commuter wants to add to that library. It tells the story of an ex-cop who has to deduce the identity of a passenger on his train ride home. If he doesn’t, a mysterious cabal will harm his family. Sounds simple enough, doesn’t it?

If only The Commuter thought so. Instead, we end up with one of the least enjoyable Liam Neeson action flicks in his entire career.

Why So Serious?

Director Jaume Collet-Serra has teamed up with Neeson three times in the past for similar high concept action-thrillers: Unknown, Non-Stop, and Run All Night. Those have all had a sense of propulsive fun and even knowing schlockiness. The Commuter doesn’t. The film is incredibly straight-faced and that grimly serious tone clashes with the inherently over-the-top story.

It feels like The Commuter wanted to stray closer to the Taken films in tone. That works for that series because of the brutal violence and grisly nature of the story. The Commuter is a much flightier idea but approaches itself with a disappointing lack of glee. If it let loose a bit, it could have some legs.

Hat on a Hat (on Another Hat)

In writing, there is a term called, “hat on a hat.” It means having an idea but then stacking another idea on top of it which distracts or muddles the original idea. That happens with The Commuter right away. The setup has Liam Neeson’s character given the proposition of figuring out the identity of a passenger on this train. If he does, he’ll plant a GPS tracking device on this person’s bag and he’ll be paid handsomely.

But, then it turns out that he must to do this task because his family has been taken captive. And on top of that, it all ties into some giant cover-up involving a faked suicide and corruption and… you see what I mean? The simple and admittedly compelling premise gets bogged down in a convoluted plot that also negatively affects the film’s pacing.

And while the action sequences are solid and deliver what you want out of this kind of movie, they mostly take a backseat to the unfolding mystery. And that mystery is painfully dragged out and even becomes highly predictable towards the film’s climax. That’s a shame because Collet-Serra is able to construct a handful of energetic fight scenes that make clever use of the tight quarters of the train. Too bad that they are so few and far between.

Is The Commuter Good?

It’s the weakest of the Neeson/Collet-Serra team-up films — please watch Run All Night — and its few bright spots are overshadowed by the film’s many other missteps. There’s a good but underutilized cast, a promising premise that’s undercut by a dour tone, and not enough action to justify the weak story. As a fan of Liam Neeson’s action output, this was a serious disappointment.

At least I’ll save you the pain of me making some train-themed pun at this movie’s expense. That’s where I draw the line. Wait, does “the line” count as a pun? Dang.

The 5 Best Action Anime of 2017

The action genre is one of the most popular and accessible types of entertainment across every medium, from Hollywood movies to cartoons, and the same is also true of anime. In 2017, studios released a plethora of titles that feature the main character facing an enormous challenge that tests their physical and mental capacity to an extreme and barely reachable point. So, we have found the best action anime of this past year that have showcased such incredible feats.

Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga

Taking place right after the events of the first season, Kyoto Saga follows Rin Okumura as he tries to gain the trust back from his classmates. The journey to recover these friendships leads him on a dangerous path from which he may never return.

Unlike its first season, the Kyoto Saga Arc follows the manga more closely and focuses on the fractured relationships between Rin and his classmates. The series valued the bond between Satan’s son and the Exwires, without neglecting essential action sequences that make the Blue Exorcist: Kyoto Saga one of the best action anime of 2017.

Blood Blockade Battlefront & Beyond

The sequel to the highly-anticipated Blood Blockade Battlefront, finally arrived this year, picking up where it left off from the previous season. And although the season hasn’t finished airing yet, so far, it’s nearing the peak of awesomeness with no chance of faltering

Blood Blockade Battlefront & Beyond is a world of its own with tons of characters and personalities waiting to be explored. Due to the wild bunch of crazy, over-the-top, and eccentric characters, such as Klaus and Zapp, BBBB may never come to an end. Based on this, the series has a lot of stories and angles yet to explore.

Gintama Season 5 and 6

If it ain’t broke, why fix it? And so is the case with Gintama. The action series has lasted this long for many reasons, one of which being that Gintama doesn’t take itself too seriously.

The fantasy world where Gintama takes place allows the characters to roam wild and go on fun adventures without consequences. However, on the occasion when it’s time to take a serious approach, it does an outstanding job of keeping viewers engaged.

The King’s Avatar

Although not technically anime, The King’s Avatar from the Chinese-based production company G.CMay Animation & Film captures the essence of Japanese animation. The 12-episode action anime series follows Ye Xiu a popular online gamer whose pro league team forces him into retirement. However, this enforced seclusion doesn’t last long as he creates a new character to once again battle it out in the online multiplayer game, Glory.

The King’s Avatar is one of the few Chinese anime series that have made a significant impression in the anime community outside of China. And although the series gives off a vibe of isekai (another world), like Sword Art Online and Log Horizon, The King’s Avatar is far from of it. There are no particular devices that immerse the player in the game, but rather, we get to see how they see themselves and the game’s surroundings.

Kizumonogatari III: Reiketsu-hen

Part of the Monogatari series of light novels written by Nisio Isin, Reiketsu-hen is the final part of the Kizumonogatari film series. Once again, we follow Koyomi Araragi as he and Kiss-shot battle it out with other vampires to end this horrible wound story.

While we know that the journey of Araragi comes to an end in Owarimonogatari, it’s enjoyable to watch a dark, intense and ambiguous story arc that the series is known for. In an hour and a half, the film manages to visually capture the complexity of human – and vampire – emotions with its dark color scheme and musical score. For illustrating the intricacies of the character and staying true to its own arc without separating itself too much from the main series, Kizumonogatari is one of the best action anime of 2017.

Will African American Executives Realize Gains from CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion?

I recently gained the opportunity to connect with attendees of the inaugural closed-door summit of CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion, an initiative cited as the largest commitment by chief executives to move corporate D&I forward. In fact, I talked with four members—Veronica L. Nelson, executive director of Advancing Minorities Interest In Engineering (AMIE); Cid Wilson, president and CEO of Hispanic Association of Corporate Responsibility (HACR); Michael Bush, CEO of business network Great Place To Work; and Joe M. Ricks, president of the HBCU Business Deans Roundtable—to gain greater insight into the program and its potential impact on inclusion and race relations in corporate America.

 

(L-R: Michael Bush; Cid Wilson; Veronica Nelson; and Joe Ricks. Image: File)

 

Among the 330 signatories of the CEO Action pledge to cultivate corporate environments that embrace employee discussions on D&I and race, they joined roughly 70 corporate and academic leaders who met to engage in their own candid, daylong conversations under such themes as “Getting Comfortable with the Uncomfortable,” “Being Truthful About Barriers” and “Creating Collaborative Difference.”

Initiated in response to the 2016 police shooting deaths of African American men and ensuing protests, CEO action represents 85 industries and 20 universities and associations led by a steering committee that includes the heads of PwC, Accenture, New York Life, and black global business leadership organization Executive Leadership Council. At the early November session in New York City, the coalition announced the formation of its President’s Circle to connect students, faculty, and administrators to D&I issues on college campuses.

Comparing the convening to the founding of civil rights groups NAACP, National Urban League, and LULAC (League of United Latin American Citizens) in the early 20th century, HACR’s Wilson, an Afro-Latino,  described the session as being “a very historic gathering. What was common with all of these meetings was that it was the first of a movement to illuminate what we know is an issue.”

The following are edited excerpts from my post-event roundtable discussion:

Attending this inaugural CEO Action summit, did you gain a better understanding of its mandate?

VERONICA NELSON: I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had the opportunity to work on the Race Working Team as one of the multiple working teams set up prior to the summit. Initially, we were skimming the surface and then we had those deep discussions. If we’re truly going to make a difference when it comes to race then we need to have those difficult conversations. We need to figure out where we are in that whole diversity and inclusion journey in order to make a difference. We need to have those conversations with the CEOs and it needs to funnel through the organization.

I think the CEOs realize that they’re at different points, and they realize that this is critical, something they need to do and can’t just skim the surface when trying to come up with diversity and inclusion strategies. They have to be embedded in the culture and their strategies.

So where do we now stand in terms of corporate diversity? 

JOE RICKS: The problem is we don’t know. We are still in a defining prospect of what diversity actually means. I mean, it just came out in this discussion here. To some, there’s race and if it’s outside of race, [then] race gets pushed aside or watered down. Well, if you were at LGBT and if race is not your issue, if it’s about race then it’s watered down with LGBT.

To really understand what we mean when we say diversity, we’re going to have to be brave enough to define what that is and define it within measurable terms so we can understand whether or not we’re making progress. Diversity is looked at right now at a 50,000-foot level.

Does this initiative have a real opportunity to do what Joe talked about, define diversity?

NELSON: I think it does, and it was very important no matter where we are in that diversity and inclusion journey and how we define it, to have everyone in that room. Some CEOs haven’t jumped in yet because they feel that it’s just words. They want to see that there are true actions that come from this and that we truly share best practices. They’re making one another accountable and realize that there are some flaws in their strategies right now but they’re the ones that can call one another on the carpet. So I think it’s important to have all of them in the room and to listen, and for those to get up and tell their story and just expose themselves which is extremely important.

CID WILSON: I want to address the conversation we often get, which is that we have to make sure that we’re including diversity of thought. I hear that a lot. That’s a term that concerns me because going to the topic of race and ethnicity getting diluted when you’re saying, “Well, we need to make sure we have diversity of thoughts.”

As long as we have someone who’s not racially diverse, or not ethnically diverse, but they have the thought there, that’s good enough for us. And for me, the answer is no, it’s not because there’s a big difference between having someone who may bring the thought into the group versus someone who brings their life experiences into the group. I plan to promote within the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion that when we talk about racial and ethnic diversity, we’re talking about racial and ethnic diversity. We’re not pivoting to other ways that dilute it.

What actions are being developed to further communicate what diversity means and how it can best be put into action?

MICHAEL BUSH: Personally, I’m not inspired to define and talk about it. It’s more about action, and the actions that are required are the underrepresented groups of people needed to be at the top of organizations. That’s how wealth was created. That’s how policy is created. That’s how governments are influenced. So it’s numbers, and it’s at the top. So the actions are to get under-reps in the groups on boards of directors, in the CEO position, and reporting to the CEO.

How do you change that equation?

BUSH: We’re not there on any of these groups so that is the metric that matters to me. These are the actions that CEOs can take. CEOs can decide, “I am going to promote that woman into a position that she is not ready for yet.” They do it every day for white employees. There’s nothing new here but for some, it becomes a risk. They need to do it. They need to let the organization know they’re going to do it. It’s sponsorship, and then you tell everybody who reports to the CEO, “You are going to go and promote somebody from one of these underrepresented groups because going beyond that, to expand the definition of diversity, is a distraction tactic that I think we’ve all been involved in, myself for 30 years. So I think the actions are around promotion into positions of power influence.

The challenge continues to be the pipeline. We should be seeing the emergence of the next wave as top African American executives are retiring. We’re not seeing that trend.

NELSON: That’s the frustrating part, that you don’t see it and you don’t see the preparation to get the next generation ready for those positions. So when they retire, the numbers start to shrink again.

BUSH: When the pipeline was there, people didn’t get promoted.

WILSON: When you’re looking at attrition of minorities in corporate America, you will see that there is a correlation between attrition and lack of sponsorship. What percentage of people of color are being sponsored? If the number is small, you will see that there’s a correlation between the small number of sponsorships and high level of attrition. You’re going to need to address that because we could continue to expand that pipeline but if you don’t expand the sponsorship, the attrition is going to continue. So you need that sponsorship at the executive level, the C-suite level, the board level. Then you have to see how you integrate it, not only from the corporate side but into other areas.

What are your expectations for the next stages of your involvement with CEO Action?

BUSH: I that it’s important to get above 330 signatories to 1.000. Otherwise, the 330 starts to weaken then other people aren’t going to come aboard. I also think it’s really important to let other CEOs know that everybody survived today. No one was attacked. Everyone was taken care of and great effort was made to do that. I think that’s important so that the numbers can increase. This is a situation where if you sponsor someone like a connected woman then she is going to help you find other high-potential women. That’s how the seed blossoms, that’s the power of this one small act.

It’s not just that there was one meeting today. There are subgroups that are working. There’s a group on race, a group on metrics. There are subcommittees that many people have put people in their companies on, working to make sure that the momentum is increased. Action is the important word. I don’t have to do in my company what someone else does in their company. I just need to do something.

‘Black Panther’ Action Figures Revealed By Hasbro

Hasbro lifted the curtain on some of its action figures from the upcoming Marvel film “Black Panther,” starring Chadwick Boseman as the king of the African nation Wakanda.

The six-inch figures, currently being shown at the MCM London Comic Con, are part of the Marvel Legends line and feature cate deco and premium articulation, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Like other Legends lines, they will have a Build-a-Figure in which each set will come with a body part so that when you collect them all, you complete Okoye, the character that is one of Panther’s bodyguards.

Among the characters in the line are Black Panther, villain Erik Killmonger (played in the movie by Michael B. Jordan), and Nakia, a deadly fighter played by Lupita Nyong’o.

The movie is due in theaters on Feb. 16, 2018, but the action figures will hit stores in January. They will be sold separately and retail for $ 19.99.

‘Pokken Tournament DX’ is Our First Taste of Real Pokémon Action on Switch

This isn’t the first rodeo for this Pokémon-themed Tekken spin-off, Pokken Tournament. After spending some time as a Japanese arcade exclusive, the game made its way to Nintendo Wii U this spring. Given the close proximity to its original release, you’d think the upgraded Pokken Tournament DX would pack as much of a punch. But from one Switch convert to another (I would hope), the game seems more at home on Nintendo’s portable darling than it was on Wii U.

For one thing, playing a nuanced fighting game with the Wii U GamePad is clunky and uncomfortable — just ask anyone who spent time with Pokken or with its more popular cousin, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. You could use the Pro Controller for the Wii U version, but surprisingly few are willing to spend another $ 50-plus on another accessory. So if you have a Switch and no Switch Pro Controller, it’s no problem; playing using the Joy-Cons on the TV or in handheld mode is a comfortable experience.



But with no Super Smash Bros. yet in sight and with GameFreak’s in-development Pokémon RPG who knows how far away, the Switch is lacking a combat game tied to its older, more classic IPs. Granted, if you’re looking to fight someone, the newer noodly boxing game ARMS is a great choice, as is Splatoon 2 if you’re feeling the competitive spirit.

The Problem with Pokken

Pokken lacks a depth of intricacy compared to Tekken or Smash — the move sets are fairly simple, and you need only hit a face button and use the directional stick to attack. But what it lacks in complexity, it makes up for in accessibility and charm. This fairly simple command layout makes it easier to pick up for fighting game newbies and players who just plain love Pokémon and want to try it out.

The problem with this, however, is that Pokken still hasn’t found much ground in the fighting games community. Yes, it’s charming as heck, but it’s the best Pokémon combat game we’ve gotten since Pokémon Stadium on Nintendo 64 (nearly 20 years ago!). But because it sticks to basics and leans heavily on adoration of the Pokémon IP, it seems it’s had a harder time breaking into the fighting games community.



Mechanics aside, the allure of fighting with these popular creatures is a big draw on its own, especially among its own community. However, Pokken Tournament does make one misstep: it needs a bigger roster. The current one is decently balanced in offering different choices using different attack elements, but for Pokémon fans, the draw is the collecting. They need more. I’m not saying we need to have all 800-plus Pokémon playable, but a meatier roster may pique the interest of more hardcore fans.

Perfect for the Switch

The roster and simplicity don’t detract from what Pokken Tournament does well: create an immersive experience in the world of Pokémon. It’s a great local multiplayer experience as well, following Nintendo’s ethos of the Switch as the console you tote along to parties. Perhaps in the future we’ll see this game expanded with a robust DLC plan a la The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Jennifer Garner’s new action thriller is giving us flashbacks to “Alias”

Jennifer Garner’s new action thriller is giving us flashbacks to “Alias”

Sydney Bristow is coming BACK, everybody. Well…kind of. Jennifer Garner is currently in talks to star in revenge thriller Peppermint, according to Deadline, and the level of action promised for this upcoming flick is already giving us so, so many Alias flashbacks.

We could not be more excited to (potentially) see Jennifer Garner in another action role!

Per Deadline, Garner’s character will be out for some pretty serious revenge: “When her husband and daughter are gunned down in a drive-by, the heroine wakes up from a coma and spends years learning to become a lethal killing machine. On the 10th anniversary of her family’s death, she targets everyone she holds responsible, the gang that committed the act, the lawyers that got them off, and the corrupt cops that enabled the murderous incidents.”

This part sounds PERFECT for Garner, who kicked so much butt in Alias, Daredevil, and Elektra. Plus, with the massive success of Wonder Woman, it’s very clear that audiences are hungry for female heroes and studios should really capitalize on this important, growing genre.

We also know that Garner has been excited to return to her action star roots — crazy costumes and all.

“Do I think there will be a return to the action? I hope so!” she told E! News. “Yes! I was just working out with my trainer this morning, and she’s trained me for 12 years and she was like, ‘I think it’s time. I think we need to put some pleather on.’”

That interview is from 2012, so we think it’s most definitely time and are most definitely on board with this project!

Must-Read New Business Book for Millennials: ‘Focus in Action is Great Leadership’

scale (Image: iStock/monkeybusinessimages)

Millennial managers are in a leadership pickle. They have enough power to take responsibility for their staff, but they don’t have enough power to shape the mission of the companies they serve.  There is a need to develop young managers and ensure they are ready to grow into power.

Yet, young leaders are often overlooked because they are not currently tasked with addressing the strategic issues of the day. There are opportunities to prepare this group for the next levels of leadership. The book, which is fully titled, Focus in Action is Great Leadership: 10 Tenets of Leadership & Professional Excellence, by Dr. Belinda J. White, is designed to meet that need.

Born a Leader or Made a Leader Makes No Difference

 

When discussing her core philosophy, White, the management director and associate professor with the Morehouse College Department of Business Administration, states, “My view is that it is irrelevant whether a person is born a leader or made a leader, is taught leadership or learns leadership. What is relevant is that development and training continue with speed and diligence to provide lessons and opportunities that challenge us all to become leaders and professionals of excellence.”

A person does not have to be a born leader in order to develop their leadership skills.  Their skills can be polished if they are persistent, and constantly willing to improve themselves.

Here is a summary of each of the 10 tenets:

Find your power source

 

Understand that you have a support system, and you should make the most of it. You can succeed by relying upon your faith, friends, and family to manage challenging times. Creating the habit of paying attention to your health and finances is also critical to your success. Understand how you should deal with failure. White says, “Don’t look at failure as a showstopper.” Forgive yourself by learning to let go and move on.

Open your internal systems

 

This step involves truly taking control of yourself. It requires honesty with yourself in assessing personal strengths and weaknesses. The process of managing yourself is crucial, and this process will reflect your values and your ethics. It may be uncomfortable, but this is a way to build emotional intelligence.

Connect to external systems

 

Nobody is an island. Find a group of people that will encourage you through open and honest feedback. According to White, “Create your board of directors.” Think of people in your professional networks who serve as mentors and advisers. Develop strong relationships that encourage advocacy on your behalf. It is important to have people in your life who will stand up for you and freely speak on your behalf.

Understand the Big Picture

 

Allow your mind to reside beyond the four walls of your specific workplace. Resist the temptation to become “myopic about life” in this age of the personal customization “bubble.” Great leaders must see the latest trends before they become mainstream. This ability requires an understanding of global political, regulatory, technological, and cultural shifts. Take an active role in your industry organizations and trade associations to recognize and apply best practices before your competition.

Sell yourself as excellence

 

Apply what White refers to as the “ABCs of Professional Presence.” Be certain your behavior is appropriate, believable, and credible. The ABCs should become a genuine aspect of your core personality. They manifest themselves through your appearance, etiquette, communication, work ethic, and work product.

Awesome Professionalism

 

Every organization is different. Have enough awareness of your organizational culture to present yourself in the most effective manner. Appreciate the importance of the dominant cultural norms within your organization. Work within the framework of these norms to apply everything you have learned to maximize your professional presence in that environment.

Courageous Character

 

You have to demonstrate who you are and what you know every day. Your daily actions will impact your personal brand, and the way people perceive you. Make certain your actions match your words to build and maintain trust. Be courageous enough to make the difficult decisions based on sound judgement. Don’t allow yourself to be seen as someone who makes excuses for your shortcomings. Your colleagues and stakeholders will deal with you based on your character.

Tenacious Inclusion

 

The most powerful global organizations are able to recruit and retain the top talent from every part of the world. To make this work, the people have to work across cultural barriers and overcome them. It takes deep emotional concern in order to get past our subconscious bias toward other groups. Successful leaders appreciate the cross-cultural differences and embrace the best in all people. The modern day leader has to realize the importance of diversity and use it to drive positive results.

Optimal Service

 

Understand the bottom line goes beyond the quarterly sales numbers. Be the person people can go to because they know you will provide long-term solutions to existing problems. Are you an employee that settles for sufficient, or are you someone who works to position the company for success in the future? The best companies maximize outcomes for their customers, their financial stakeholders, and the community as a whole. These companies need the strongest leaders to guide them through the 21st century.

Noble Leadership

 

This is the tenet that puts it all together. It is not enough to develop yourself over time and simply accumulate power for self-centered ends. You will lose the trust and respect of the people over time. This message is about the ethical and prudent use of power and influence. You have a genuine opportunity to impact humanity in a positive direction once you rise to this level. You can truly make a difference in society and be a catalyst for positive leadership.

12 Stunning Photos Of ‘Tiny Dancers’ Caught In Action

Photographer Jordan Matter has made a name for himself with his series of images of dancers around the world. For his latest project, he highlighted a special group of dancers: children.

“Tiny Dancers Among Us” features kids and teens with a passion for movement. Matter, who has two children himself, spent two years photographing creative kiddos in locations across the U.S., Europe and North Africa. 

After Matter’s 2012 book, Dancers Among Us, became a bestseller, he struggled to come up with a concept for his next big project. “Then one afternoon when my daughter was shoveling snow, I grabbed my camera,” he told The Huffington Post. “She looked right at me and hit an arabesque. ‘Tiny Dancers Among Us’ immediately popped into my head, and my next book was born.”

The photographer has found many of his “Tiny Dancers” subjects through his popular Instagram account. He’s also received emails from children and parents asking to participate in the shoots. These emails usually include a few photos and personal notes about what dance means to these kids.

“One 10-year-old wrote such a persuasive email that I flew from NYC to LA just to photograph her,” Matter said. “When I shoot, I rely on serendipity. None of the photos have been planned ahead of time, I just pick a central location and walk around until I see something interesting. Then the dancer and I work together to construct a pose that tells a story.”

Matter believes his photos celebrate the nostalgia and everyday moments of childhood. “As we become adults, we seem to lose our innocent wonder, and our imagination is often replaced with indifference,” he said.

While photographing the dancing children, he tries to see the world through their eyes and remember his childhood sense of joy, wonder, excitement, fear and more. Matter finds the kids he’s photographed inspiring. Said the photographer, “I am struck by their talent, dedication, passion, tenacity and most importantly, imagination!”

Matter is currently looking for even more “tiny dancers” to photograph. He teamed up with the photo software developer, Macphun, to launch a contest for kids to win an opportunity to appear in the book.

“We are asking every dancer to submit two photos and a personal story,” he explained. “The contest started last week, and we’ve already heard from hundreds of kids.”

To learn more about the contest and see more of Matter’s photos, visit his “Tiny Dancers Among Us” website.

Love Takes Action: An Astrological View

For the past two years, my HuffPost blogs have focused on astrology and the myriad ways this ancient art is helpful and meaningful for life today. I was galvanized by HuffPost’s call for articles under the heading #LoveTakesAction. It is an antidote to the swirling hate around us in these fractious and difficult times and I am happy to contribute. Personally, and in my astrology practice, I am encouraging people to focus on what they can do without becoming overwhelmed by the fray, the double talk, and polarization we find all around us.

The first category HuffPost suggested is ways people take action to show and even mobilize love. Each astrological sign takes action in different ways and hewing to your own resonant talents and ability will maximize your effectiveness and keep your energy balanced.

Aries: Leads the campaign and marches. He is a natural warrior for justice.

Taurus: Raises money for organizations that matter and promotes concrete goals towards tolerance and peace.

Gemini: Disseminates real information that encourages people to think and take action.

Cancer: Nurtures those who come across their path whether in a soup kitchen, shelter, or random encounters.

Leo: Dramatizes with very public and heartfelt performances which portray the world you want to live in.

Virgo: Analyzes and categorizes information to discern the actual facts and communicates this information clearly.

2017-02-13-1487000444-7693330-zodiacsigns.jpg

Libra: Engages with tact and diplomacy in relationships, action and dialogue that try to balance love and hate while taking a middle course.

Scorpio: Transforms him or herself with radical, personal actions that serve as a model for passionate tolerance of all the forms love can take.

Sagittarius: Teaches through conversation and ideas that laughter and good humor can overcome obstacles.

Capricorn: Organizes business structures based on responsible solutions and ecological solutions for all people.

Aquarius: Creates a circle of friends and common-minded people who act together on social projects.

Pisces: Works with charitable and religious organizations that reach out with compassion to the neediest.

These suggestions are calls to love action for each sign. I hope they resonate with you and enhance your quest for a more harmonious world.

Zukes 0243634 Hip Action Dog Treats Peanut Butter – 6 oz


Hip Action is formulated to help treat and prevent the common symptoms associated with canine hip and joint problems such as dysplasia arthritis and stiffness. Our unique formula combines a variety of natural nutrients to keep dogs active mobile and pain free. In normal joints the tips of the bones are soft and spongy and are floating in a gel-like fluid which acts as a cushion keeping bone from touching bone. As dogs age or if they exercise a lot that cushion gets thinner and thinner. When the bones get close enough or touch the result is pain and discomfort which results in loss of mobility and stiffness. Thats where Glucosamine HCl and Chondroitin come into play. These nutrients help condition and rebuild worn aching joints. Dogs dont like pills and powders. The conditioning nutrients in Hip Action are mixed into a tasty all-natural treat. Every treat contains 300 mg of Glucosamine and 50 mg of Chondroitin essential co-factors to maximize absorption plus fresh blueberries apples carrots and ground flax seed. Zukes Hip Action can also be fed to younger dogs to help prevent hip problems before they start. Feed Hip Action and Fuel the Love.

    Hong Kong Protester Proposes To Girlfriend Amid The Action

    As the pro-democracy protests in Hong Kong continue, emotions run high.

    Not all emotions are negative, however.

    On Sunday, footage captured in Mong Kok shows Yau Chi Hang, 22, getting down on one knee to propose to fellow protester and girlfriend Crystal Chan, 21. In the video, featured on the Associated Press’ YouTube channel, the couple is seen surrounded by a crowd that cheers after Chan says yes.

    But the sweet scene comes amidst political unrest as thousands blockade the streets, demanding the right to vote for a leader in the 2017 elections.

    “We hope our next generation won’t have to be occupying the streets as they’ll have true universal suffrage,” the engaged couple told reporters when asked about having children.

    Authorities have given the protesters a deadline to clear the streets. Some have pulled out of talks with the government due to clashes with the police, but CNN reports a student group is willing to restart conversations if the conflict between pro-democracy protesters and those opposed is better handled.

    The Spirit of the Marshall Plan: Taking Action Against World Hunger, School Lunches for Kids Around the World

    The Spirit of the Marshall Plan: Taking Action Against World Hunger, School Lunches for Kids Around the World


    Invoking the same spirit that fueled the Marshall Plan to rebuild Europe, author William Lambers calls for a global school lunch program to fight child hunger. 300 million children suffer from hunger worldwide. School lunch programs fight child hunger and also boost school attendance and performance. This book highlights the use of school lunch programs in Europe following World War II and how they can be used today in countries like Afghanistan, Kenya, Guatemala and Sudan. The future of these nations depends on a nourished and educated youth. Special attention is given to the work of charities such as Food for the Poor, Childslife International and the World Food Program. Supporting the U.S. government McGovern-Dole Food for Education program is seen as key to ensuring every child around the globe can receive a school lunch. McGovern-Dole helps fund the work of the World Food Program, Catholic Relief Services and other organizations that carry out school lunch programs in developing countries.
