Everything coming to (and going from) Hulu this August

TwitterFacebook

With Insecure Season 3 as its only binge-worthy newcomer, Hulu has definitely seen better months for TV than August 2018. That being said, its movie selections should more than make up the difference.

Classics abound with rom coms including 10 Things I Hate About You and Pretty Woman, sci-fi staples like The Terminator and the Species franchise, and even a few horror meets comedy mashups in Teen Wolf and Shaun of the Dead.

Make the most of this classic selection during your final days of summer! Check out everything Hulu is bringing on and kicking off its platform this August down below. Read more…

England Lost in the World Cup and the ‘They’re Going Home’ Memes Are Here

Following England’s devastating loss to Croatia in the World Cup semi-final, Twitter was rife with jokes poking fun at the “It’s coming home” rallying cry of the English fan base.

With a little over 10 minutes to go in extra time of Wednesday’s match, Croatia’s Mario Mandzukic fired a shot into the back of the net to give his team a 2-1 lead over England. The English squad was unable to come up with an equalizer in the remaining time, officially ending their chances of reaching their first World Cup final since 1966.

But as if the loss itself wasn’t crushing enough, it was then that the “They’re going home” memes began to appear. Those rooting against England were all too quick to turn their fans’ cheer of “It’s coming home”—which has risen in popularity throughout the 2018 World Cup—into a taunt.

These recent photographs of Melania Trump are going viral for a very surprising reason

And you literally can’t ‘unsee’ it…

Melania Trump

Ever since Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, a popular conversation topic has been his wife Melania Trump‘s facial expressions, with the public often commenting on the First Lady’s seemingly glum mood.

Whether standing on the White House balcony with POTUS and a giant easter bunny or frequenting public events hand-in-hand with her husband, the First Lady is rarely seen to be smiling, and when she does, the public have been quick to point out that it looks strained.

In fact, on the very first day of Trump’s inauguration, Melania’s apparent unhappiness was a common theme in the global women’s march, with multiple people taking to the streets with banners reading, ‘Free Melania’.

Free Melania

REX

There were jokes that the First Lady’s straight face could be due to the company of her husband, with some fans pointing out that the 47-year-old looked noticeably happier when she was spotted solo.

Unfortunately for Trump, her most recent public appearance has only added fuel to the fire, with Melania making headlines when she attended Barbara Bush’s funeral at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church, Houston, this weekend.

But it wasn’t the fact that she attended solo that got the internet talking, with the president nowhere to be seen. Instead, it was her demeanour, with Melania – who in the absence of her husband was sat next to former President Barack Obama – looking happier than the public could remember seeing her.

Twitter users were of course quick to point out the comparison, with Patton Oswalt tweeting, ‘What the hell is wrong with Melania’s mouth? I’ve never seen it do that before’.

‘After over a year in office, Melania has not smiled once in the presence of Donald Trump’, tweeted another user Ed Krassenstein. ’10 minutes with Obama’s, and look what happened!’

‘Find someone who smiles at you the way Melania Trump smiles at Barack Obama’, another Twitter user, Grace, posted to her account.

While the First Lady has yet to comment on sitting next to Obama, she did Tweet a tribute to Barbara Bush, posting, ‘It was my honor to travel to Houston to give my respects to Barbara Bush and the remarkable life she led as a mother, wife, and fearless First Lady.’

‘My sincerest thoughts and prayers continue to be with George H.W., and the entire Bush family.’

Meghan Markle’s White Dress Features a Trend That Isn’t Going Anywhere

The world is anxiously awaiting the reveal of her wedding dress next month, but in the meantime, Meghan Markle just stepped out in a white dress that’s perfect for daytime spring and summer occasions that are a little more low-key than a royal wedding. After months of cold weather in the UK, we’ve gotten used to seeing Markle bundled up in sweaters, trousers, and coats, but since spring is in full swing, we’re finally getting a glimpse of the future royal’s warm-weather style.

The dress that Markle stepped out in today for a reception with Prince Harry is by Altuzarra, and she accessorized it with a crossbody bag, pumps, and a blazer draped over her shoulders. The pinstriped and belted dress features a trend that we think is classic enough to ensure that it’ll be around for awhile: big buttons. (For context, this detail is currently adorning tons of tops, dresses, outerwear, skirts, and even swimwear on the market, but it was Khaite that really set the trend in motion.) We love that Markle certainly isn’t a slave to trends, but she does seem to want to embrace ones that are more subtle and timeless than, say, the vinyl and PVC trend.

See Meghan Markle’s latest look and shop the trend below.

On Meghan Markle: Camilla and Marc Marguerite Blazer ($ 700); Altuzarra Audrey Dress ($ 1995); Oroton Avalon Zip Top Crossbody Bag ($ 221)

New Garments Going on Display at ‘Diana: Her Fashion Story’ Exhibition

FASHION HISTORY: Historic Royal Palaces, the charity that manages Kensington Palace, has been working toward adding new, never-before-seen garments for the reopening of the popular “Diana:Her Fashion Story” exhibition, later this month.
The exhibition charts the sartorial history of Princess Diana and highlights important moments in her life through her clothing.
Some of the outfits going on display include the Armani chinos and white shirt she wore to visit the landmine fields in Angola with the International Red Cross in 1997 and a violet body-hugging gown created by Gianni Versace, a dear friend of Diana’s, for a fund-raising dinner at the Museum of Natural History in Chicago.
The pink David Sassoon dress Princess Diana wore en route to her honeymoon with Prince Charles will also be exhibited, alongside pieces by Catherine Walker, Caroline Charles and Victor Edelstein, a leading London couturier in the Eighties.
Princess Diana was also known for championing local designer names during State visits, as illustrated by a cobalt blue pleated gown by the London-based Japanese-born designer, Yuki, worn to a State Dinner with Emperor Hirohito in Tokyo.
The exhibition will reopen on April 26 at Kensington Palace and it’s predicted to attract large crowds as interest on the British Royals is peaking, with

FASHION TIPS:

6 new strollers everyone’s going to want in 2018

by

Joyce Slaton

posted in Products

Strollers have new tricks: They turn from single to double, fold into a roller bag you can pull through the airport, and have fabric that can be whipped off that put right into your washing machine.

Here are six of the sweetest strollers we’ve seen so far this year.

1. The Evenflo Pivot Travel System

I got a chance to play with this travel system at the JPMA Baby Show in Washington, D.C., and was blown away by how many things it could do, how good it looked and handled — and then I learned it was $ 280 and my head really exploded. So cheap — so good!

This stroller basically has the functionality of much higher-end models: You can use the included seat in a pram/bassinet mode for infants, remove the seat and snap in the included SafeMax infant car seat, or put the original seat back on and push a toddler/preschooler up to 50 pounds. The stroller has big high-quality wheels and handles like a dream, the under-seat basket is huge, you can reverse the seat in every mode — it’s really crazy how great this travel system is for the price!

Note that a really cool convertible version of the Pivot will be available soon; watch out for the Pivot Xpand this summer.

Buy it: $ 279.99

2. The Graco Uno2Duo Stroller

Seamlessly able to handle all the transitions of a family with two kids, the Uno2Duo is one versatile stroller. Buy it for your first child as a single stroller or a travel system, with one of the most popular infant car seat on the market, the Graco SnugRide SnugLock 35, included. You can turn the included seat into a bassinet, or use the stroller to hold your baby in the SnugRide, facing you or facing out.

Once your family grows to include a second child, you magically telescope the Uno2Duo’s chassis to hold a second seat (sold separately; or you can buy the stroller as a double from the get-go). Now your infant rides on top in the car seat, and your older child rides below — or, if your child would prefer, they can stand on the integrated ride-on board, no second seat necessary.

Buy it: $ 320-$ 450

3. OXO Tot Air Stroller

If you’re a parent who’s on the go a lot, consider this teeny tiny little beauty that packs great features into a small size. First, it’s super-lightweight: a mere 11 pounds, and it folds into a small package that, thanks to the integrated carrying strap, is easy to sling on one arm and carry through an airport or up and down subway stairs.

It rides smoothly, takes curves well, and — this is the feature that thrilled us when we saw it at JPMA — the stroller’s fabric parts snap easily off, can be thrown into a washer, and then snap right back on. Agonize no more if your kid barfs or chocolate-ice-creams all over the stroller on a trip.

Buy it: $ 179.99

4. Summer Infant 3Dpac CS+ Compact Fold Stroller

Summer Infant has made a splash in recent years with its 3D line of strollers, which have tons of cool features at really modest prices. The 3Dpac is yet another worthy 3D stroller, named because it’s “packed” with features: it folds with an easy one-hand motion, stands by itself, has a built-in strap that makes the 3Dpac easy to put on your shoulder and take you anywhere you want to go. The 3Dpac also has a feature that need to be on every stroller, everywhere: a pocket that securely holds your phone and allows you to see it at the same time — no need to use a precious free hand to pick it up to see who’s calling.

The 3Dpac will be available for sale in April of 2018.

Buy it: $ 149.99

5. Diono Traverze Stroller

People at the JPMA show couldn’t stop playing with the Traverze, because 1) It’s a real beauty of a stroller 2) It handles like a much heavier and more expensive model 3) It snaps shut like a book and stands by itself and 4) Once it’s shut, a little handle telescopes out and you can pull it behind you like a suitcase, with or without its included travel bag. It comes in craaazy colors, too, including this gorgeous yellow, a bright cobalt blue, shocking pink, sophisticated burnt orange with a beautiful copper chassis…

Buy it: $ 259-$ 300

6. Safety 1st RIVA Travel System

Environmentally minded parents often feel terribly guilty about all the gear babies nearly force you to consume and then discard — but the RIVA Travel System is a stroller you can feel good about buying: it’s made of recycled parts (including Safety 1st’s recycled car seats!) and it’s manufactured and assembled with at the company’s zero-landfill factory in Columbus, Indiana (which has been manufacturing car seats since 1978).

This is huge news, because up until now there hasn’t been a single stroller made in the USA (mostly they’re made in China but sometimes they’re made in Europe). The RIVA also has terrific features: the stroller is lightweight at only 18 pounds, has a simple one-hand fold, and stands on its own when folded. The system also comes with a Safety 1st onBoard FLX infant car seat (also American-made!), and the fabrics on both car seat and stroller are easy to take off and machine-washable.

Having said all that, you’re not going to believe the price. Right??!!

Buy it: $ 200

How to Avoid Going Over Budget for Your Home Remodel

Whether it’s a backyard pool or a set of new windows you’re saving up for, planning a remodel is exciting. But that anticipation can fade pretty quickly when you start adding up expenses. Home remodeling costs can rack up fast, especially if you haven’t adequately budgeted your project beforehand. Below we outline some of the most common hidden costs—and how you can prevent them from sinking your hopes.

Contractor

Ballpark Costs Before You Get an Estimate

Your contractor’s estimate will allow you to more precisely pinpoint the total expense of your remodel. But just so you don’t get caught off guard, it’s a good idea to approximate the costs on your own first.

Typically, you can expect to spend at least $ 200 for each square foot of the renovation, although that number may be higher if you’re planning major structural changes or want to add or move plumbing fixtures.

Choose a Trustworthy Contractor

Hiring a reputable contractor is one way to save, at least when you take the long view. A bad one can leave you holding the bag for a major repair, not to mention putting your family’s safety in jeopardy.

In general, you shouldn’t use cost as the deciding factor when you choose between contractors. Contractors who offer cutthroat estimates are usually going to make up for it somehow, either with lax quality or poor materials. Instead, judge each contractor by their experience, recommendations and references—or contact our representatives, if you need more help making a decision.

contractor-ceiling

Keep the Communication Coming

Don’t put your project on autopilot after the contract is signed. Poor communication is the number one cause of unexpected costs, so make sure you’re checking in regularly with your contractor and discussing the progress and what happens next.

Check if your contractor’s okay with texting so you can stay in touch throughout the workday. After you talk to the contractor, jot down whatever was discussed and any questions you have. That way, you can make sure all issues get addressed—before the final paint job goes on.

Don’t Change Your Mind Mid-Project

One day you want to knock out the wall and put in a master bath. The next day, you’re totally sold on a privacy divider wall. Remodeling your home is a major decision, and it’s understandable to feel jittery about committing. That said, you won’t be doing your budget any favors—or making your contractor very happy—if you change your mind constantly from one day to the next.

Your contractor should help you plan your remodel in detail before work begins, but be sure to run over your priorities and goals for your project. If it’s a large remodel, chances are good that you’ll make revisions to this plan at some point. But try to hammer out the major details before the contractor starts ordering materials. Otherwise, your he or she will write up a change order, charging you for new materials (on top of the old ones), as well as billing you for new labor costs and consultation time required to make the change.

Plan to Bring Your Home Up-to-Code

Building codes change pretty frequently, so if your home is over ten years old, there’s a good chance your interiors have fallen out of code.

In many places, contractors are required to bring working systems up-to-date, so don’t be surprised if he or she tells you that there are electrical outlets that need to be upgraded or wiring that’s out of whack. Depending on the scope of the updates, this can definitely inflate your project budget.

Of course, online coupons always help, too, so check out these home deals from RetailMeNot to make you feel better about the money you’re spending. Happy thrifty remodeling!

Khloe Kardashian going with T name for tot

OHMYGOSSIP — Khloe Kardashian is planning on picking a name for her daughter that begins with the letter T.
The 33-year-old reality star is expecting her first child, a baby girl, with her boyfriend Tristan Thompson, and although she still hasn’t settled on a moniker for her impending arrival, she has revealed she’s thinking of going with something that starts with a T, so that she can take after her dad.
Khloe and her sisters – Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall, and Kylie – all have names beginning with K, and whilst the blonde beauty hasn’t completely abandoned the idea of sticking with that tradition, she is thinking of starting her own by switching to a T.
When a Twitter user asked if she was going to pick a moniker beginning with a K, Khloe replied: “I think a T but a K is an option as well. That’s as far as I know.”
Khloe’s mother Kris Jenner picked K names for her first three daughters – whom she had with her late ex-husband Robert Kardashian, with whom she also had son Rob – to match their surname Kardashian, and kept up the tradition for her youngest daughters Kendall and Kylie, who were born to her second husband Caitlyn Jenner – who was known as Bruce Jenner at the time.
It’s thought Khloe will opt for a T moniker as her daughter will likely have Tristan’s surname, and her tot will then keep up the alliteration tradition.
It comes after the ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star revealed before she knew the gender of her tot that she would call her baby Tristan Jr. if she were to have a boy, but admitted she was struggling with a girl’s name.
She said: “[Naming the baby] is the hardest. I think if it’s a boy I’ll go with Junior. Tristan Jr. For a girl, I don’t even know where to begin. I think I want a K, or a T. For Tristan.”
Khloe has often talked of her struggles to come up with a moniker for her daughter, as she previously took to Twitter to bemoan her indecisiveness.
When one fan told her they couldn’t wait to find out what she names her baby, Khloe replied: “Ugh me too!! lol I can barely decide what I want to eat. Let alone name a baby (sic)”

For Bisexual Black Girls Who Didn’t Know Janelle Monáe Was Going to Create Their Anthem Today

YouTube/Screenshot

Thursday, Feb. 22, 2018. Remember that date. It marks a historic moment in your beautifully intersectional identity as a bisexual Black woman.

Perhaps you didn’t know this day was going to be anything beyond the 53rd day of 2018–and another dreaded day under the 45th president. But on said day, you watched Janelle Monáe’s music video for Make Me Feel. It was the antithesis to everything that gives the White House and 46.1 percent of Americans a fright: queers, Blacks and queer Blacks.

Monáe simultaneously dropped the music video alongside the visuals for her other newly released single, Django Jane.

Once you were done watching the Django Jane video, you surely didn’t think it could get more enthralling than a rapping Monáe. You thought you’d walk away from Thursday having only gained a bomb Black female empowerment anthem. (Which is still spectacularly uplifting in its own right–but you simply didn’t expect your sexual preferences to also get a four-minute shout-out as well).

Make Me Feel is a love ballad that’s already inspired comparisons to pop legend Prince. While that’s immensely respectable and all, we don’t care to pay attention to that aspect. Not today. Because today we saw what is arguably the most feminized and sexualized Monáe you’d ever seen. And she’s seductively shimmying as she puts on for your ever-so-fluctuating sexuality.

Throughout the video, Monáe unapologetically embodies bisexuality. When she simultaneously teases her goodies to a random man and Tessa Thompson, she emboldens those of us who have found that our attractions weren’t dictated by anatomical make-up. For those who are or were once perplexed by the absence of an actual sexual preference, the video is affirming.

Make Me Feel draws from one of the most iconic episodes of Netflix’s Black Mirror series in which two women find eternal love upon meeting younger versions of themselves. It’s the series’ queerest episode, a unique love story and it makes the video all the more powerful. But aside from simply representing for bisexual Black girls, there’s another element about the artist that makes these visuals even more empowering: Monáe has never declared her sexuality, so it may be safe to say the reclusive 32-year-old isn’t using sexual preferences as a marketing ploy. She’s simply expressing herself. And that (plus equality) is all the LGBT community has ever wanted.

Watch the Make Me Feel video below:

Shaun White Is Going For Gold in the Halfpipe at the 2018 Winter Olympics. Here’s What to Know About the Event

Snowboarding legend Shaun White is aiming for gold Wednesday morning in his signature event of the men’s halfpipe at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.

After easily qualifying for the men’s snowboarding halfpipe finals Tuesday, White faces stiff competition heading into the finals, where he will square off against Australia’s Scotty James and Japan’s Ayumu Hirano.

The competition follows the women’s snowboarding halfpipe finals, where American phenom Chloe Kim won gold and became the youngest woman to do so in the event in Winter Olympics history.

That was just one gold medal in what has so far been a U.S. sweep of the sport, with Red Gerard and Jamie Anderson scoring gold in the men’s and women’s slopestyle events, respectively.

Before White, James and Hirano face off on the halfpipe in a battle for gold, here are several things to know about the snowboarding halfpipe event.

Rules of the snowboarding halfpipe event

Cameron Spencer—Getty ImagesShaun White of the United States competes during the Snowboard Men’s Halfpipe Qualification on day four of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games at Phoenix Snow Park on February 13, 2018 in Pyeongchang-gun, South Korea.

Set on a 22-foot halfpipe, the men’s halfpipe event at the Olympics includes a qualification round and a final round. The top 12 scorers from the qualifications, where athletes had two runs on the halfpipe to earn the best score possible, go on to the final round. There, they will have three runs down the halfpipe to earn their highest score, which can range from 1 to a perfect 100.

According to the rules set by the International Ski Federation (ISF), athletes compete in the finals in reserve order of when they qualified. So, because White had the top score in his qualifications, he will compete last amongst the 12 finalists Wednesday.

An athlete’s score is determined by a panel of six judges, who will rank the halfpipe run on a scale that goes up to 100. The lowest and highest amounts from the six judges are then removed, and the remaining four scores are averaged to create an athlete’s final score, according to the ISF.

A judge’s score comes as the result of a number of factors that determine how difficult a halfpipe run was. Here are a few of examples of how these factors fit into a score:

  • amplitude, or height, the more difficult the run
  • A controlled execution of tricks, rotations, speed and landing will make for a better score.
  • A variety of tricks makes for a good run.
  • Using the full pipe throughout the run.
  • Helping the sport’s progress with new tricks bodes well for judges.
  • An ability to take risks on the halfpipe is vital. But, as the ISF notes, judges want the athletes “to push their run to its maximum but not beyond.”
  • Performing a combination of difficult tricks and moves back-to-back, rather than separating them with easier ones.

Of course, athletes can be deducted for a number of mistakes, from small to large, during their runs. Though White had the highest score in qualifications going into the men’s halfpipe finals at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, he fell twice in Sochi during his first run and lost points that could have placed him on the podium. Luckily for White, he didn’t stop during those spills in Sochi. If a snowboarder stops on the halfpipe for more than 10 seconds, they can no longer earn any more points on their run and they must exit the course.

Snowboarding’s history at the Olympics

Final Half Pipe - Mens Snowboard
Adam Pretty—Getty ImagesShaun White of the United States (C) celebrates after winning the Gold Medal with teammate Daniel Kass (L) and Markku Koski of Finland in the Mens Snowboard Half Pipe Final on Day 2 of the 2006 Turin Winter Olympic Games on February 12, 2006 in Bardonecchia, Italy.

Spectators certainly did not see any snowboarders shredding the half pipe at the first Winter Olympics in 1924 in Chamonix, France. The sport of snowboarding and the halfpipe did not make its Olympics debut until the 1998 Games in Nagano, Japan. Back then, Switzerland’s Gian Simmen claimed the men’s halfpipe victory, and the U.S.’s Ross Powers earned bronze.

After that, the U.S. went on to dominate in the halfpipe event at the Olympics, with Powers securing gold at the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, and his teammates Danny Kass and Jarret Thomas earning silver and bronze, respectively.

White took the lead from there, earning gold medals in the event in 2006 in Turin and 2010 in Vancouver. Iouri Podladtchikov brought home another gold for Switzerland in 2014 in Sochi when White failed to make it on the podium.

Similarly, the women’s halfpipe has been dominated by the U.S. Americans have won gold, silver or bronze in the event since it debuted in 1998. Kelly Clark was a stand-out for Team USA in the event, which she won gold in 2002 and bronze in 2010 and 2014. This year she placed fourth, behind her teammate and 17-year-old star Chloe Kim, who won gold, and the U.S.’s Arielle Gold, who won bronze.

Popular snowboarding halfpipe moves by top competitors

Cameron Spencer—Getty ImagesScotty James of Australia competes during the Snowboard Men’s Halfpipe Qualification on day four of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic Games at Phoenix Snow Park on February 13, 2018 in Pyeongchang-gun, South Korea.

With difficulty and risk-taking as a vital part of a snowboarder’s score in the halfpipe, the best athletes in the event often try to land technically challenging moves to appease the judges and improve their chances to get on the podium. The top three competitors in the men’s halfpipe this year — White, Hirano and James — have all landed impressive tricks before.

Here’s what we know about their spectacular moves:

In White’s most impressive run to date at the Winter Olympics qualifications earlier this year when he scored a perfect 100, White completed one 1440 and a double McTwist 1260, one of his signature moves that he first debuted in 2010. That tricky move includes three twists and two flips.

Hirano is the first snowboarder to land back-to-back double cork 1440s in the halfpipe run. He first landed the trick at the X Games Snowboard SuperPipe competition earlier this year, where he won with a nearly perfect score of 99.00.

James, who has voiced criticism over White’s perfect score of 100 earlier this year, has a signature move of his own. His backside, double cork 1260 includes three-and-a-half rotations with a blind landing — and he is the only snowboarder to land the move in competition.

Trans Soldier Going to State of the Union Tells Trump: You Can Count on People Like Me

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast

Army Staff Sgt. Patricia King, a transgender woman, will be sitting in the House chamber for President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address with a message for her commander-in-chief—who doesn’t  believe she should wear the uniform that she has for the past 18 years.

“If I had the opportunity to be the president’s staff [non-commissioned officer] for a while as it applies to transgender issues, I would tell him that the most important thing he can do is to get to know his transgender soldiers,” King King told The Daily Beast by phone before boarding a flight to Washington, D.C.

“See Private Miller from rural Pennsylvania, he can fix anything, even with duct tape. See Private Vasquez, she’s been shooting rifles since she was 6-years-old and you can trust her with a rifle. See Martinez, he’s a transgender soldier, whose parents didn’t support him, but he absolutely loves this country and you can count on him no matter what…I would want President Trump to learn about these people.”

Nicolas Cage on Going Where Few Actors Dare: ‘I Didn’t Get Into This for Awards’

PARK CITY, Utah — Nicolas Cage really gets into character.

As legend has it, while filming his role as a cocaine-huffing, Vicodin-popping, gleefully unhinged cop in Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans, Cage was spotted in between takes doing bumps of a mystery powder out of a vial. When the film’s director, Werner Herzog, approached Cage to ask what he was snorting, the actor spun around and yelled, “It’s fucking coke!

“That was an interesting day,” Cage says with a chuckle, readjusting the glistening gold rings adorning his fingers. “I had this little vial of inositol, which is a saccharine substitute. It looks like blow…but it’s not. I would do it to psych myself up all day long and really feel, from an impressionistic level, what that experience was like. And I got so into it that Werner would say, ‘Now Nee-co-las, vat is een that vial?’”

‘I Thought I Was Going to Die’: Read McKayla Maroney’s Full Victim Impact Statement in Larry Nassar Trial

Olympic medalist McKayla Maroney said former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar’s sexual abuse began when she was 13 or 14 years old and scarred her in ways that “may never go away.”

The gymnast’s victim impact statement was read aloud in court on Thursday as part of the multi-day sentencing hearing for Nassar, pleaded guilty in November to seven counts of criminal sexual contact with underage girls.

“As it turns out, much to my demise, Dr Nassar was not a doctor, he in fact is, was, and forever shall be, a child molester, and a monster of a human being. End of story!” Maroney wrote in her statement. “He abused my trust, he abused my body and he left scars on my psyche that may never go away.”

Maroney first spoke out about the abuse in October, and since then many other gymnasts have come forward to share similar experiences as the USA Gymnastics sexual abuse scandal continues. More than 100 women and girls are expected to speak at Nassar’s sentencing hearing, which will extend to next week, according to the Associated Press.

Maroney’s statement comes despite a confidentiality agreement she signed as part of a $ 1.25 million settlement with USA Gymnastics. USA Gymnastics said it would not enforce the $ 100,000 fine it could have imposed on Maroney for speaking out about the abuse.

Here is the full text of Maroney’s victim impact statement.

 

For as long as I can remember, gymnastics was my life. As a child, my mom said, “I need to put this child in gymnastics, to tire her out.” You could say I was in gymnastics since the age of 18 months. I’ve always felt comfortable in the gym, sort of my home away from home.

I was 7 years old for my first competition. I remember getting ready for the meet. I got my hair braided with a cool bow, and some sparkles. I got to wear this really awesome leo, and wore a matching warm-up. Life was good, I looked good… and I was pretty certain that one day I’d be heading off to the Olympics!

The Olympics is something that brings people hope and joy. It inspires people to fight for their dreams, because anything is possible with hard-work and dedication. I remember watching the 2004 Olympics. I was 8 years old, and I told myself that one day I would wear that red, white, and blue leotard, and compete for my country. Sure, from the outside looking in, it’s a remarkable and amazing story. I did it. I got there, but not without a price.

I made the US National Team at the age of 14, and began to compete throughout the world for my country. When I first met Larry Nassar, he was the doctor for our National Team and our Olympic team. I was told to trust him, that he would treat my injuries and make it possible for me to achieve my Olympic dreams. Dr. Nassar told me that I was receiving “medically necessary treatment that he had been performing on patients for over 30 years.”

As it turns out, much to my demise, Dr Nassar was not a doctor, he in fact is, was, and forever shall be, a child molester, and a monster of a human being. End of story! He abused my trust, he abused my body and he left scars on my psyche that may never go away.

It all started when I was 13 or 14 years old, at one of my first National Team training camps, in Texas, and it didn’t end until I left the sport. It seemed whenever and wherever this man could find the change, I was “treated.” It happened in London before my team and I won the gold medal, and It happened before I won my Silver Medal. For me, the scariest night of my life happened when I was 15 years old. I had flown all day and night with the team to get to Tokyo. He’d given me a sleeping pill for the flight, and the next thing I know, I was all alone with him in his hotel room getting a “treatment.” I thought I was going to die that night.

Because the National Team training camps did not allow parents to be present, my mom and dad were unable to observe what Nassar was doing, and this has imposed a terrible and undeserved burden of guilt on my loving family.

Larry Nassar deserves to spend the rest of his life in prison. Not only because of what he did to me, my teammates and so many other little girls — He needs to be behind bars so he will never prey upon another child. I urge you to impose the maximum sentence upon him.

Ever since I went public with my story, I have been inspired and uplifted by the love and support of my former teammates, fans and many other good people.

People should know that sexual abuse of children is not just happening in Hollywood, in the media or in the halls of Congress. This is happening everywhere. Wherever there is a position of power, there seems to be potential for abuse. I had a dream to go to the Olympics, and the things that I had to endure to get there, were unnecessary, and disgusting.

I was deeply saddened by the stories of my fellow Olympic teammates that suffered as I did at the hands of Larry Nassar. More than 140 women and girls had to say, “#MeToo” to Nassar’s sexual assaults and hundreds more were victimized to create the pornographic images that fueled his evil desires.

A question that has been asked over and over is: How could have Larry Nassar been allowed to assault so many women and girls for more than two decades?

The answer to that question lies in the failure of not one, but three major institutions to stop him — Michigan State University, USA Gymnastics and the Untied States Olympic Committee.

When my story became public the US Olympic Committee said, “Each doctor working with our athletes undergoes background checks including an evaluation of medical licensure actions. Unfortunately, this predator was not identified by any organization during the time in question.” Reports in the Nation’s leading newspaper and media outlets document credible claims that Michigan State University trainers and coaches received complaints about Nassar going back to the late 1990s. These complaints were ignored.

Nassar was note even licensed to practice medicine in Texas, yet he “treated” and abused girls at the Karolyi Ranch Olympic Training Center in Huntsville, Texas for more than 15 years.

In 2014, Nassar was the subject of a Michigan State University investigation based on additional complaints of sexual misconduct. This botched investigation concluded that Nassar’s actions, which he has now admitted were sexual assaults, were legitimate medical treatments. He was allowed to go back to work at Michigan State University and continue molesting girls. USA Gymnastics and US Olympic Committee were never informed of this investigation.

When other Olympic and National Team athletes complained to USA Gymnastics about Larry Nassar in 2015, he was allowed to retire as the Olympic Team doctor and Michigan State University was never informed of the complaints against him.

He returned to Michigan State University and allegedly continued to molest young girls until he was finally arrested nearly a year later.

A simple fact is this. If Michigan State University, USA Gymnastics and the US Olympic Committee had paid attention to any of the red flags in Larry Nassar’s behavior I never would have met him, I never would have been “treated” by him, and I never would have been abused by him.

It is my hope that federal and state law enforcement agencies will not close the book on the Larry Nassar scandal after he receives his just punishment. It is time to hold the leadership of Michigan State University, USA Gymnastics and the United States Olympic Committee accountable for allowing, and in some cases enabling, his crimes.

Our silence has given the wrong people power for too long, and it’s time to take our power back.

Kim Kardashian West Says She’s ‘Going Back’ to Long Hair as She Shows Off Platinum Extensions

Kim Kardashian West is planning a whole new hairdo for 2018!

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star revealed she’s changing up her platinum shoulder-length bob on Saturday as she shared a series of videos on social media that featured a set of platinum hair extensions from ChaViv Hair by Violet Teriti.

“Okay, we are going back long,” said Kardashian West, 37, in one video of the extensions. “Long and blonde, I’m gonna put extensions in because my short, natural blunt is annoying me.”

The KKW Beauty mogul’s hair artist Chris Appleton also shared a tutorial on his Instagram page —alongside a photo of Kardashian West wearing the hair extensions — as he explained how fans could copy the look for themselves.

Although 2018 has just begun, this hasn’t been the first time this year that Kardashian West — who’s currently expecting her third child with Kanye West via surrogacy — has hinted that she’s ready to change up her hairstyle.

Last week, the soon-to-be mother of three suggested that she was thinking about ditching the blonde locks and returning to her natural hair color.

“Dark hair for the new year?” she captioned a throwback picture of herself.

The star also seemed like she might be missing her long brunette locks when she posted a nearly nude photo of herself on Friday, in which she was dressed in nothing but a white thong.

Rise & Grind,” Kardashian West captioned the photo, which captured her laying on her side on a bed, with her hand covering her chest, her thong revealing her bare butt, and her long brown hair strewn across the pillow.

Regardless of when the photo was taken, everyone — including commenters and her family — took notice. The star’s pregnant sister, Khloé Kardashian, commented on the shot, “Now you’re showing off!!” and added a few tornado emojis in a separate comment.

There’s a FedEx holiday email scam going around — here’s what you should know

A seasonal email scam threatens to sour the holidays for a number of FedEx customers.

The fraudulent emails contain a subject line that reads: “FedEx: Delivery Problems Notification.” Any emails with that subject line should be discarded immediately, CBS affiliate WTOL 12 reports.

FedEx is warning customers that the scam is designed to trick last-minute holiday shoppers, according to WTOL. The emails ask recipients to open an attachment in order to view an invoice or airbill required to pick up the package, but the attachment may actually contain a virus.

“The frequency of this email tends to increase close to the holiday season, presumably to exploit the growth in shipping volumes,” FedEx says on its Customer Protection Center page. More examples of common email scams involving the deliverer can be found on the site.

MONEY has reached out the FedEx about this specific scam and will update the story if we receive a response.

If you’re going to say “radical Islamic terrorism,” you need to say “radical Christian terrorism” too

If you’re going to say “radical Islamic terrorism,” you need to say “radical Christian terrorism” too


If you’re going to say “radical Islamic terrorism,” you need to say “radical Christian terrorism” too

Whenever anything happens that could be described as an act of terrorism, and the perpetrator is Muslim, certain politicians and media outlets can’t move fast enough to be “brave enough” to call it “radical Islamic terrorism,” as if “terrorism” isn’t a good enough a word. Monday’s attempted suicide bombing in the Port Authority of New York City was no different.

According to federal and local New York City authorities, the perpetrator of Monday’s attack had been living in Brooklyn for seven years. Although the investigation is ongoing, he was apparently inspired by the ISIS “Christmas attacks” in Europe the past few years, which means he was radicalized here. Officials are calling it an “attempted terrorist attack,” since the man only injured himself, along with four others who sustained minor injuries.

Donald Trump released a statement after the bombing saying that America could have prevented the attack with immigration reform (though the man is not from a country on Trump’s travel ban list) and did not use the words “radical Islamic terror,” which is pretty interesting.

During the debates last year, he said of then Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, “These are radical Islamic terrorists, and she won’t even mention the word, and nor will President Obama. Now, to solve a problem, you have to be able to state what the problem is, or at least say the name.”

He certainly has a point in one regard: Stating the name of the problem is often the first step. But his lack of tweet storms on Monday about “radical Islamists” is telling (although there’s still time, obviously). It’s highly possible that someone on his team has axed that verbiage from his official statements, since it’s very misleading and could possibly lead to accusations that Trump is, after all, Islamaphobic, since he refused to call other terror attacks that happened this year “radical Christian terrorism” or even “white supremacy,” most notably after after a sniper murdered 58 and injured 546 people in Las Vegas in October and a white nationalist borrowed one of of ISIS’ new methods and drove a truck into a group of protestors in Charlottesville in August, or the countless other attacks of political violence perpetrated by white, Christian, nationalists just this year.

If you want to nitpick, fine. Some, like the New Yorker‘s Masha Gessen, suggests that since these are lone actors and not some “substate groups” that they don’t technically earn the terrorism label. She makes a distinction between “politically motivated” violence and “terrorism,” and warns against using the term (or any term) so broadly risks stripping it of all meaning. For example, there’s no evidence that the  Las Vegas was motivated by politics and so refrains from calling it terrorism, which is defined as “unlawful use of violence and intimidation, especially against civilians, in the pursuit of political aims,” according to the Oxford English Dictionary. It does, at the end of the day, change how these perpetrators are tried in American court, if they survive their own violence, and leads to greater charges.

But maybe we’re being too lenient by being afraid to label any act of violence against people as “terrorism” just because it doesn’t work with the idea that all terrorists have be of a certain race, creed, or take people hostage on airplanes. We get what Gessen is saying, but the fact remains that 2001 and 2015, right-wing extremists have killed more Americans than any Islamist terrorist, according to the nonpartisan think tank New America. Where’s the label to account for their political motivations?

The chances of an American being killed in a terrorist attack perpetrated by an immigrant is one in 3.6 million, and that includes the statistically offsetting number of 9/11 deaths. As Zack Beauchamp wrote over at Vox, that means people are more likely to die from their own clothing or a toddler with a gun.

We don’t know about you, but when someone claims to be a white supremacist — like the white man from Baltimore who came to New York with the explicit intent to kill black people, stabbing 66-year-old Timothy Caughman to death, or the Oregon man who screamed at two Muslim kids on a train “we need Americans here!” and then stabbed two men who tried to help to death — that sounds a lot like some sort of terrorism. But you didn’t hear anyone call them “radical” anything. At the same time, Trump insisted that President Obama call the Orlando shooter a “radical Islamic terrorist,” though his allegiance to ISIS was weak at best, and ISIS sort of takes credit for anything they feel fits their brand, according to the New York Times.

It’s one thing to debate the overall meaning of terrorism, and if someone comes up with a better way to distinguish between different violent, politically motivated acts, we’re here for it. But using the term “radical Islamic terrorism” has become such a buzzword and racist dog whistle for ring-wing politicians that we have to demand they be specific (or even acknowledge) all of these acts of racist, political attempts to murder people while they’re commuting to work or shopping in a holiday market.

When people insist on using the term “radical Islamic terrorist,” they aren’t trying to accurately label an act of violence nor are they worrying about how the perpetrator will be tried in court. What they want to do is stoke fear in the “Other,” namely Muslims (but they’d likely be swayed to come up with terms for other religious and racial groups if pressed), in an effort to further right wing, isolationist agendas, whether it’s trade deals or immigration policies.

Labeling some violence “radical Islam” and ignoring the self-identified Christians who bomb abortion clinics, or any other act of violence perpetrated by a non-Muslim, is a way to get people behind “America First” policies, even though it’s most often Americans killing other Americans. If Americans want to use the term “terrorism” loosely and specify a religion or a race when they speak about it, it’s only fair to insist that they drop the qualifiers, “Christian,” “white,” or “male,” when it applies. Chances are, the same people who readily employ the term “radical Islamic terrorism” would be quick to clarify that self-identified Christians who perpetrate violence aren’t representative of their religion or its morals, and would be horribly offended and upset at having their religion associated with such violence. Maybe something to think about when it comes to the millions of peaceful Muslims in the world.

Cheers! Thanksgiving Cocktails To Keep The Party Going

Multiracial group of friends drinking at restaurant bar

The food is definitely the star of the Thanksgiving show, but no meal is complete without the proper complementary cocktail. The best cocktails for the Thanksgiving season expertly combine the flavors of fall with rich, full-bodied spirits to keep you warm and satisfied during and after your meal.

If you’re solely focused on preparing the Thanksgiving feast and haven’t had the time to think about the cocktail menu, don’t fret because HB has you covered. Whether you’re in the mood for dessert-inspired drinks, those with just the right amount of spice or modern twists on classic recipes, we have a list of cocktails that are sure to please a variety of palates.

Cheers and Happy Thanksgiving Beauties!

Pumpkin Pie Martini – Would you rather eat your pumpkin pie or drink it? Or maybe enjoy a little bit of both? Try out this Pumpkin Pie Martini recipe that is sweet and rich enough to earn a place on your holiday menu. Bonus: the martini glass is rimmed with crushed graham crackers for extra flavor.

https://i0.wp.com/food.fnr.sndimg.com/content/dam/images/food/fullset/2012/8/8/0/FN_Fine-Living-Cocktails-Pumpkin-Pie_Martini_s3x4.jpg.rend.hgtvcom.616.462.suffix/1371609212178.jpeg?quality=85&strip=all

Cranberry Gimlet – If you wait all year for the taste of cranberry sauce and can never seem to get enough, then this cocktail is for you. Cranberries galore are the stars of the Cranberry Gimlet, that has a little lime juice and lots of gin to give it a well-rounded flavor. You can garnish with whole cranberries or eat them by the handful as a dessert alternative.

https://i0.wp.com/food-fanatic-res.cloudinary.com/iu/s--TMBJdTve--/t_xlarge_l/cs_srgb,f_auto,fl_strip_profile.lossy,q_auto:420/v1414427608/cranberry-gimlet-photo.jpg?w=550&ssl=1

The Frozen Turkey – Think of The Frozen Turkey as a grown-up milkshake that is heavy on the alcohol (Wild Turkey 101 & Amaretto) and even heavier on the dessert. It’s filled with butter pecan ice cream and brown sugar, but the most important thing is that the taste is absolutely amazing. You’ll definitely want to save room for this one.

https://i0.wp.com/theviewfromgreatisland.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/DSC_0062-0011.jpg?w=550&ssl=1

Harvest Mimosa – Mimosas aren’t just limited to brunch, and the Thanksgiving-ready Harvest Mimosa proves it. The fruits and flavors of fall are on full display in this irresistible cocktail that provides just enough alcohol, but not too much, so you can enjoy a day full of family fun. This could also work well in a non-alcoholic version.

https://i1.wp.com/del.h-cdn.co/assets/17/46/980x490/landscape-1510961137-twoglasses.jpg?quality=85&strip=all

Rye and Pomegranate Punch – If you’ve ever been to a house party, you know that the punch will sneak up on you before you know it—and this Rye and Pomegranate Punch could possibly do the same thing. It is the perfect combination of sweet, sour and potent, meaning that it will be impossible to stop drinking, but it’s the holiday season, so enjoy!

https://i0.wp.com/assets.bonappetit.com/photos/57ad2a7a1b3340441497544f/16:9/w_1280,c_limit/rye-and-pomegranate-punch.jpg?resize=550%2C310&ssl=1

Mirabelle – Sure, cranberries, apples and pumpkin are the dominate fruits during this time of year, but there are others that deserve to get their shine and the Mirabelle cocktail is the perfect opportunity. Featuring a generous amount of plum puree and red plum slices, this drink leaves a lasting impression.

https://imagesvc.timeincapp.com/v3/mm/image?url=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn-image.foodandwine.com%2Fsites%2Fdefault%2Ffiles%2Fstyles%2Fmedium_2x%2Fpublic%2Ffw2008-xl-mirabelle.jpg%3Fitok%3Dv7AbJ-tX&w=800&q=85

Apple Pie Spiced Cider – Apple cider is a fall and Thanksgiving mainstay, but this Apple Pie Spiced Cider offers up an alcohol-infused twist to the classic beverage. This Thanksgiving, you can skip eating your apple pie and drink it instead, as this cocktail is spicy, sweet and definitely satisfying.

https://i2.wp.com/jpmhu6b3nz39kozm49h4ar15-wpengine.netdna-ssl.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/TheSpeckledPalate_SparklingBourbonApplePumpkinPunch_009_web.jpg?resize=550%2C367&ssl=1

Sparkling Bourbon Pumpkin Apple Punch – What do you get when you combine all of fall’s most prominent flavors into one cocktail? Well, Sparkling Bourbon Pumpkin Apple Punch, of course! This is so easy to make because you’ll likely already have the ingredients left over from your Thanksgiving meal, so give it a try.

FASHION UPDATE:

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Is Going Out on His Own Terms

NASCAR is not the first place one would look to find a voice of the resistance. Yet after Donald Trump railed against NFL players’ kneeling during the national anthem, the biggest name in the sport took to Twitter with a rebuttal. “All Americans R granted rights 2 peaceful protests,” Dale Earnhardt Jr. posted, adapting a John F. Kennedy quote to 140 characters. “Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable.”

This was not exactly a popular sentiment among a fan base that tracks closely with the voting bloc that put the President in office. Indeed, Richard Petty, a former NASCAR star and current team owner, said the protesting players “ought to be out of the country. Period.” But Earnhardt, 43, has long been willing to take stands at odds with racing’s core supporters. In 2015 he spoke out against the Confederate flag, which many fans fly atop their RVs at races. Earlier this year, after Trump barred people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the U.S., Earnhardt tweeted that his family came from Germany in the 1700s to escape religious persecution.

“I just thought it was important to remember that this country was built on the hard work of a lot of people who came from overseas,” Earnhardt tells TIME in an interview ahead of his final career race, on Nov. 19 at Homestead-Miami Speedway. His support for the right to protest was rooted in a similar perspective. “I just don’t want to be quick to judge someone who wants to raise awareness,” Earnhardt says. “You have to be open-minded and compassionate.”

That Earnhardt says this while remaining NASCAR’s marquee star speaks to his skill on the track, personality off of it and a family legacy like no other. The grandson of NASCAR pioneer Ralph Earnhardt and son of Hall of Fame driver Dale Earnhardt Sr., who died in a crash at the 2001 Daytona 500, he acknowledges inheriting much of his appeal. “I’ll put it to you straight,” Earnhardt says. “My dad was very popular, so there’s no denying that when I came into the sport I had a lot of fans automatically because of his notoriety and celebrity.” Thanks in part to his everyman demeanor, Earnhardt expanded that fan base despite never winning a championship. The same fans who may disagree with his views have voted Earnhardt the sport’s most popular driver for 14 years running. This year will be the last: Earnhardt is retiring after 19 years on NASCAR’s top circuit, with 26 career wins, including a pair of Daytona 500s.

Losing Earnhardt will be a blow for NASCAR at a fraught moment (though he’ll stay involved and is joining NBC’s racing coverage). In recent years stock-car racing has suffered ratings and attendance declines. Viewership for an Oct. 8 playoff race, for example, was down 44% from 2014, according to Sports Media Watch, and admissions revenue for the International Speedway Corp., which owns a dozen NASCAR tracks, fell 47% between ’05 and ’16.

Earnhardt says his decision was made easier by a concussion suffered in a wreck in June. He missed 18 races and had symptoms like blurry vision and a lack of balance. “You get a concussion and forget your keys–you wonder if it has anything to do with your head,” Earnhardt says. “You self-analyze everything. You’ve got that in the back of your mind, and you can’t get rid of it.” Earnhardt has said he will donate his brain to concussion-related research.

Retirement is well-timed: he and his wife are expecting their first child, a girl, in May. Earnhardt says he hopes his daughter passes on the family trade. “Following in my dad’s footsteps was really a challenge,” he says, adding that he would support her if she wanted to become the fourth generation on the track. He would be uniquely equipped to help. “I don’t have the statistics that live up to my father,” says Earnhardt, whose dad won seven championships. “There’s only one him. So you’ve got to enjoy who you are, love yourself and be proud of what you can accomplish. That’s just the only way to go.”

This year I’m going to make a do-less holiday plan if it kills me

by

Kelly Wilbanks

posted in Parenting

The aging pumpkins on our porch fill me with dread and excitement. The holiday season is approaching. How did this happen? One minute I was watching this summer’s eclipse and the next we’re gearing up for Black Friday and all that it entails.

If need to step back now and think about what I want this holiday season to be about and not get caught up in all the stuff to do.  I want a do- less plan in place. I want to make memories with my family and I don’t want those memories filled with anxiety about being late, being rushed, and being stressed.

I remember Christmas as a little girl. The memories that stand out to me are taking family pictures in front of the Christmas tree, feeding a reindeer, opening presents, and being a baby doll in our school’s play. Oh, and I remember feeling guilty sitting on Santa’s lap because I was still wearing the pants I’d wet myself in earlier that day.

santa-Christmas-picture

That is what I remember: the feelings. The excitement and the joy and a little guilt for wetting Santa’s knee. So, how do we get there? How do I keep the anxiety, the stress and the demands of “holiday cheer” from smothering the joy of the season? I want my kids to experience the joy, of course, but also for me and my spouse who have to manage all these festivities.

Scale back

The best advice I can give you and myself is to scale back. Think about all the things you want to do and then begin eliminating. The younger your kids are the more things you should probably just let go. Think through nap schedules and the time it takes to do things i.e. from packing up essential items, to getting the kids in the van, to driving, to being there, to coming home. Factor all that in, and then decide if it’s worth it.

Last year we visited Santa and the train museum. Here’s a picture of my daughter having a behind-the-scenes conference with the big man himself. At 4 years old she had a very clear list for him and was happy for this one-on-one time. It was an all day thing that worked with two kids, but I’m not sure will work with three. It might be an adventure Vivi gets to just do with Dad this year or we may do it next year as a family.

meeting-santa

Tradition-keeping is overrated

Keeping a tradition isn’t worth it for tradition’s sake. Does getting a Christmas tree require a tromp through the woods? No, it might have been sweet the first year you were married. But, we’ve found some perfectly good Christmas tree lot trees over the years because we didn’t have time to make an entire day out of getting our tree.

Reading-book-by-Christmas-tree

It took us almost a week to decorate because it was more important that we have time to do traditions like reading The Night Before Christmas and getting our kids to bed at a decent hour. It might just take that long to decorate your tree or… to redecorate it when a helpful toddler decides the act of decorating is so much more fun than the finished product.

toddler-decorating-Christmas-tree

Put REST on the calendar

You have to plan for rest. I know that might sound silly, but seriously — put REST on your calendar. You can thank me later. Have a day here and there where you know nothing is scheduled. Catch up, pause, and just be with your family. We have the second weekend in December booked for a stay-cation. We’re putting on Christmas pajamas and just watching Christmas movies together.

Ask your kids, if they’re old enough, what they remember from last year. My daughter remembered doing a journey-through-Bethlehem annual walk that the local Adventist church. It comes complete with camels so it’s quite memorable. We added that to our list, but left off things she didn’t list or remember.

Christmas-family-picture

Of course, we have things on the schedule, but we’re holding these things loosely knowing that having sick, drained or tired kiddos isn’t worth it. We love our kids and want to keep loving our kids during the holiday season.

How do you rein the holidays in?

There’s No Way Stephen Colbert Was Going to Let Trump’s Water Break Slide

On Wednesday night’s episode of The Late Show, Stephen Colbert wanted to welcome President Donald Trump back from Asia with a drink, but couldn’t quite manage the feat.

Colbert’s gag was yet another person poking fun at the president for his water-drinking method, which he put on display when he, as The Late Show captioned their video, “took a break mid-speech Wednesday to wet his dog whistle.”

Colbert aired a clip of the president’s press conference, which Trump paused in order to take a two-handed drink from a bottle of water. “That is hard to watch,” Colbert said, adding, “After watching that, I need a drink.” Colbert then imitated the president’s sip of water. While the audience laughed, Colbert noted that “everybody gets dry mouth”, so it wasn’t fair to tease a politician for staying hydrated. “I can’t stand here and make fun of a politician for drinking water,” said Colbert. “And Trump already did it way better with Rubio.” Colbert then aired a clip of Trump mocking Florida Sen. Marco Rubio for drinking water during his State of the Union response in 2013.

Rubio got his revenge on Trump, though, rating the president’s water-drinking technique, as a means of karmic retribution.

Useful things you’ll need when going on a business trip

ADVERTISEMENT


Business trips are the backbone of the modern corporate world. Without them, there is no way for your company to thrive, and there is no diversity across the business world. It’s essential to get out in the world and try to make a connection with people from all walks of life. When you’re jetting off abroad for business, you want to have the perfect blend of work and play, and really showcase why you and your company are worth the investment.

Now, many people are seasoned pros and know exactly what to bring on business trip, while others have no idea where to begin. Packing right is essential if you want to enjoy a successful and stress-free business trip. So, we thought we’d put our heads together, and come up with some awesome ideas of the most useful things you will need when you decide to go on a business trip.

Electronics

These days everything is pretty much digital, and it’s almost impossible to do business of any kind without electronics. So, you have to make sure you pack the relevant electronics with you that you’ll need for your trip. For instance, you will need to take your smartphone, laptop, and, possibly a tablet as well. Don’t forget to pack charges and ports as well so you will always have access to working electronics.

Currency

It’s a brave person who goes abroad without any of the local currency changed up. Make sure you have at least some with you before boarding your flight. Yes, it may be cheaper to change it up when you’re out there, but, at the very least make sure you have the cash for a taxi and a snack with you before you go. Now, some currencies are easy to come by, but others may need to be ordered, so make sure you account for this and order yours in plenty of time.

Paperwork

Now, there is a preference these days for making everything digital, and that includes your business documents and information. But, we think it’s also important to have hard copies as well, not to mention the fact that it looks more professional as well. So, make sure you compile all your information before going and print it off, so you have a hard copy of the relevant paperwork. This is a good way of keeping a backup and is essential for helping you to stay in the game, so to speak.

The right clothing

Don’t forget that, even though you’re traveling on business, you’re still going to a separate country, and the climate can be very different. You need to make sure you pack the right kind of clothing to help you acclimate to the weather. This means packing warm clothing for colder climates, and vice versa. You may not think about this too much, but it can definitely make a big difference to your comfort and experience on the trip.

Business cards

The most important part of business is marketing and networking, and business cards play a crucial role in this. They are a calling card, and a wonderful way to generate interest in the company, and put the feelers out when connecting with people. Business cards should be your bread and butter, and you need to carry them with you at all times because you never know when they might come in handy.

These are just a few of the amazing tips we’ve come up with that you need to know about for your business trip. If you’re serious about having the most productive and enjoyable trip imaginable, this advice is invaluable. Don’t forget, the whole purpose of a business trip is to make a connection and help your business thrive in another country.

Monday Motivation: How To Keep Going, From A 102-Year-Old Runner

Ida Keeling’s life story is rife with motivation. The 102-year-old began working at age 12 to help provide for her immigrant family, lived through the Great Depression and the civil rights movement, raised four children as a single mother, and then set world records as a runner—in her 90s.

motivation from Ida Keeling (Photo courtesy of Zondervan)

 

Keeling is sharing that inspiring story in her memoir, Can’t Nothing Bring Me Down: Chasing Myself in the Race Against Time, which will be released next February and is available for pre-order this month.

“I was feeling so blue,” Keeling writes of the period after her two sons were murdered, less than three years apart.

“My psyche had slowed down and it felt like I was moving around in a bowl of thick oatmeal. Not a pleasant feeling, but me and the icky sensation were becoming well acquainted. Too well.”

Keeling credits her daughter Cheryl, herself a runner, with saving her life by pleading with her to run for the first time at the age of 67. Running is “an answer to grief, stress, obesity, bad health, and bad habits,” Cheryl writes. “It is a survival tool.”

More than 30 years later, Keeling is sharing some motivation from her journey:

Stick it out, even when it hurts

 

“It was my first race. I took off and all these people was rushin’ past. It felt like somebody pulled a sheet off me; it was horrible,” Keeling writes, “but I said I can’t slow down now. I got to keep going.”

“I started thinking this is too much, then all of a sudden, I started picking up a little speed and I thought, gee maybe this is good for me.”

The way you talk to yourself matters

 

“The gun sounded, and I was off, putting to shame younger couch potatoes, excuse givers, or plain old slackers who might’ve been well accustomed to convincing themselves that they were too over the hill to compete,” Keeling writes.

“That’s the thing about feeding yourself negative information. It always slows you down.”

Surround yourself with the right people

 

“I absolutely refuse to tolerate drama,” Keeling writes, adding “I just don’t have time for people who live only to cause trouble.”

“Just find the nice, kind, supportive people and bring them into your circle. Let the others find God in their own way and in their own time.”

Rep. Gallego: Democrats are going to protect U.S. — and your paycheck

JUDY WOODRUFF: Now to our series of conversations on the future of the Democratic Party.

I sat down with Democratic Congressman Ruben Gallego in the studios of Cronkite School of Journalism here at Arizona State University.

He has represented Phoenix in Congress since 2015, and is a Marine Corps veteran who served in the Iraq War.

I began by asking him what’s at stake in the fight over health care.

REP. RUBEN GALLEGO, D-Ariz.: Well, what’s at stake is the rising premiums on millions of Americans, and, according to the CBO, one million Americans not having health insurance next year in 2018.

The Lamar Alexander-Patty Murray compromise seems good on paper. It’s going to pay out the subsidies for the insurance market for the next two years. It does give some flexibility to states about what is covered and how the money is used. I’m waiting to see what those details are.

JUDY WOODRUFF: So, let’s talk about your party, the Democrats.

It’s been almost a year since the Democrats took a serious drubbing in the 2016 elections. What shape is the Democratic Party in now?

REP. RUBEN GALLEGO: Well, certainly, I think we’re in better shape, and largely because we have a lot more grassroots activism that has taken the party and really molded us, I think, into a stronger party.

Our fund-raising now is largely based on small-dollar donors. You see, you know, people from all walks of life coming out of the shadows to run for office. We’re winning special elections, and in parts that we shouldn’t be winning, like Oklahoma, different — you know, New Hampshire, and districts that were Trump districts.

JUDY WOODRUFF: You said when it came time for a vote for majority — for minority leader in the House last November, that it was time for the party to learn from its mistakes in last year’s election.

You said it needed new leadership. You supported Congressman Ryan of Ohio over Nancy Pelosi to be the House minority leader.

Do you still feel that Nancy Pelosi should be replaced?

REP. RUBEN GALLEGO: Well, at that point, I did feel like it was time for her and leadership to go in general, because I think we didn’t — we had definitely not learned the lessons of what just occurred.

Right now, I think you know, we are midstream. It would be very chaotic for us to change leadership right now. I think it’s important for Leader Pelosi to do her job and do it well. But, also, I think it’s also important for everyone to recognize that she is accountable.

JUDY WOODRUFF: You also said a year ago that you agreed with the American people the message coming from the election was that people are upset with the status quo in Washington.

Is the status quo still what exists in Washington? Or has President Trump, who has come in and been a disrupter, changed all that?

REP. RUBEN GALLEGO: The message that people are seeing, are feeling right now, I would say, is that it’s very chaotic right now.

And the presidency is supposed to bring some level of calmness and some level of certainty. And the fact that it’s not happening, not only is it not happening — it’s that he is the prime cause of this unease — has changed the tone.

I still believe the Democrats need to have a strong message. We need to have a strong economic message, one that is not just the everyday status quo, not just your usual punchlines of training people for the futures of tomorrow, the jobs of tomorrow. That doesn’t do anything.

We need to make sure that people know we’re not just talking about them, that we’re actually fighting for them.

JUDY WOODRUFF: You actually raise a subject I wanted to ask you about.

And that is, because a lot of people look at Democrats and say your message right now is all about anti-Donald Trump, that there’s not enough of a positive message. What is the positive message of Democrats right now?

REP. RUBEN GALLEGO: Look, our positive message is that we are the party that’s going to protect this country.

But, first of all, we’re going to protect you from Donald Trump. Number two, our message is the message that we’re also going to protect your paycheck. We’re going to make sure that you’re going to make better wages, that you’re going to receive all the benefits and dignity you deserve from work.

Number three, we’re going to protect you in terms of your national security.

Donald Trump is a threat. Donald Trump is a threat to our national security. We don’t know how far his collusion went with the Russians, or at least his administration. We know that he is destabilizing our alliances all around the world, and we’re better when it comes to national security than Donald Trump is and the Republican Party.

JUDY WOODRUFF: So, what the president, though, is saying is the only thing Democrats are doing right now is obstructing his agenda.

REP. RUBEN GALLEGO: He is talking about his agenda vs. America’s agenda.

And that’s not absolutely true. For example, the Murray-Alexander bill, which is a bipartisan bill that has worked through some very…

(CROSSTALK)

JUDY WOODRUFF: This is health care.

REP. RUBEN GALLEGO: The health care bill was stopped midway because the president wanted to do repeal and replace.

Now they have — they’re coming back with this bill. They have again the compromise. And President Trump is again rejecting the compromise.

What Donald Trump means by compromise is that we just are supposed to agree with him. This is not land development. This is not some piece of property in, you know, Manhattan. We work together. We build something together. It’s not like — it’s not going to be the way he wants it, and that’s the way the American public is demanding it.

JUDY WOODRUFF: I want to ask you about an issue important all over the country, especially here in the state of Arizona, and that is immigration.

What do you expect Congress is going to do about the so-called dreamers, the young immigrants who came to this country undocumented, brought here by their parents? The president has said he’s going to stop protecting them, but he’s asking Congress to do something about it. What do you think will happen?

REP. RUBEN GALLEGO: Well, again, this is the president, you know, showing no leadership and just passing the buck.

And we’re going to pick it up. I think at, the end of the day, we’re going to protect our dreamers. We’re going to make sure that they have a pathway to citizenship. I don’t know how that looks. At the same time, we’re not going to say, you know, dreamers are allowed to stay in this country and will not be deported, but the parents, we’re going to put them in the process of deportation or increase the chance of them being deported.

We just have not going to be playing — we are just not going to bargain with human lives.

JUDY WOODRUFF: All right, Congressman Ruben Gallego from the state of Arizona, it’s good to talk with you. Thank you very much.

REP. RUBEN GALLEGO: Thank you for having me.

Tyrese Lashes Out At The Rock Again, Says He Is Going ‘Broke’ From Legal Fees

Tyrese is going through it.

The R&B singer is no stranger to publicly spilling his grievances on social media. Well he’s back at it again except this time he is also airing out his personal family drama, going as far to say that he is going “broke” paying for legal fees to get his daughter back.

In two Instagram posts, he talks about his financial woes and calls out The Rock… again. We could break it down for you but the original text is a must read.

Posted with a photo of him and Lee Daniels (not sure why), he wrote:

Father God I see you and I finally get it…………… Life is confusing at times when you’re moving along and your “role” or “purpose” isn’t revealed to you………. Proudly I’m a Capricorn born Dec 30th 1978 Dr King was taken away from us April 4th 1968 and when I found out Dr King WALKED the streets of WATTS during the WATTS RIOTS it changed my life forever!!!!!! The King family it’s random but I just wanna thank you for love and thank you for your sacrifice and thank you for what your mother and “FATHER” selflessly did for us all……….. #VoltronStudiosHollywood coming soon……. I repeat coming soon…. Ok? Take care guys……God bless you….. ps Lee Daniels dude you’re a fellow Capricorn please listen to me don’t you EVER wear your facial hairs like that ever again Ok? And FYI I was never mad at The Rock – I was just mad that he was “pitched” an idea privately and said yes to it without thinking of what I’m dealing with personally I’m almost broke paying legal fees and is doing what we committed to doing for the #FastFans and #FastFamily cause the fast is tradition it’s not just another Movie Fast was created to COUNTER images of racism to counter that WE ARE NOT ONE RACE…… So the rock how does it feel bro?…. going home to your daughter every night…. it’s was 60 days before I seen my baby….. and all I asked you to do “privately” was NOT accept a role that would deeply effect us all……. You are simply NOT the people’s champ….. you are a selfish champ….. I’m almost broke swimming in legal fees CAA tried but couldn’t book me anything cause my ex wife killed my reputation so no one wants to hire me.. It’s not about I know I know I know right?? Says the man on the Forbes list.. Make sure you kiss your 2 daughters when you get home I wish I could but I can’t afford to fight for my baby anymore so they’re likely going to take her away……. Thanks Dewayne see you guys in 2020 and I will not delete this post cause the TRUTH of selfish people in Hollywood needs to be mentioned……………… to this day Dewayne has NOT called me back as u see me crying every 3 hours over my baby know #ShaylaRocks

In a second a post, he targeted The Rock, also sharing a snap of him, The Rock and Vin Diesel.

 

Instagram Photo

 

Hello world………. hello loyal fans and loved ones from OUR fast universe…….. I’m sorry to announce that if Dewayne is in Fast9 there will no more Roman Peirce – You mess with family and my daughters survival I mess with yours……… close your eyes dude you’re a “Clown”…… #CandyAssBitchMade All my real one…. Men on integrity… my real ones out here stand UP…… folks that GP to the gym and get big naturally #NoJuice #NoOJ spin off huh? Spin off these nuts selfish champ…… pause notice who’s got his arms around my shoulder and who’s standing alone –#OurChildrenMatter

But that’s not all, Tyrese can be seen crying over his custody battle and the draining expense. Remarking, “I’ve got all these millionaire friends and billionaire friends, and nobody’s showing up for me.”

Tyrese’s social media antics can be seen as funny or to some pathetic but what we want to see is him get help because it seems like he needs it.

‘Black Mirror’ Season 4 Is Definitely Going to Please Fans

Black Mirror is returning later this year and fans are ready. The sci-fi anthology series has gained a huge following, especially after its Emmy win for the episode “San Junipero.” With six new episodes to come, we got a glimpse at one of the episodes during our coverage at New York Comic Con. And the episode’s director even moderated the panel.

That director? Jodie Foster.

“Arkangel”


black mirror arkangel
Implants are a regular feature of many ‘Black Mirror’ episodes.

Foster was in attendance not only as a director but also as a true fan of the series. She talked about her love of the show before introducing a clip from the episode she directed, “Arkangel.”

The premise centers on a mother (Rosemarie DeWitt, who Foster said she always wanted to work with) who gets an implant put into her daughter’s brain. This allows her to do things like monitor her daughter’s vitals, her location, and even filter out real-world content that her daughter experiences.

If this goes the path of a typical Black Mirror episode, things aren’t likely to turn out well. But, implants have been a staple of the series and “Arkangel” is approaching them from an interesting angle: childcare. And that difference in approach is what attracted Foster to the project.

Influences and Technology

The discussion then switched to showrunners Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones who talked about how they see the show. Brooker said, “Technology isn’t the villain. It’s how a human comes in and uses that technology.”

Jones backed that up by mentioning one of Black Mirror‘s influences: an anthology series by Roald Dahl called Tales of the Unexpected. “Tales of the Unexpected was very domestic,” Jones said. She went on to say that that intimate approach has always been vital to the kind of stories the creators want to tell on the show.

Get Ready for Easter Eggs


black mirror men against fire
Remember this image. You’ll see it again in the new season of ‘Black Mirror.’

The series has never been part of a truly connected universe. However, Brooker has said that all the episodes exist in the same “psychological universe.” Well, Brooker decided to amp up that connectivity with this new season.

He presented it by saying, “We turned on the Easter egg hose.” There is even a quick nod to the episode “Men Against Fire” in the clip from “Arkangel.”

Black Mirror doesn’t have a premiere date yet but expect the episodes very soon. Why not go back and binge the last few seasons? You know you want to.

In an interview with The Cruz Show, Jackie Chan teased at the actual possibility of Rush Hour 4! There to talk about a new film starring him and Pierce Bronson Jackie explained, “For the last seven years, we’ve been turning down the script. Yesterday we agreed.”

We aren’t too sure about the details of what was agreed on, but we do know that it’s up to Chris Tucker to make this happen.

“The script probably at the end of this month will have a second draft, and next year, probably (we will) start. I hope- if Chris Tucker agrees, “ said Chan.

Chan couldn’t help but get nostalgic about the films in the past. “It’s not about money,” he said. “We’re all, like old men. I told Chris Tucker ‘Before we get old, please, let’s do Rush Hour 4.’”

But it’s not just Jackie who’s excited for the chance at another film, but fans are too.

 

So it’s all in the hands of Chris Tucker. Do you want to see another Rush Hour?

The bad news is Netflix is raising prices of it’s premier package by two dollars starting next month.

The good news, those extra fees will help support almost $ 7 billion worth of content in 2018.

Mashable reports:

The streaming video service will be raising prices on its middle and top-tier plans in the U.S. starting in November. Subscribers who currently pay for the standard $ 9.99 service will be charged $ 10.99. The price of the premium tier will rise from $ 11.99 to $ 13.99. 

Good news for people on the basic $ 7.99 plan—that price is staying put, for now. 

The U.S.-only price hikes will begin to go into effect in November, varying depending on individuals’ billing cycles. Starting on Oct. 19, subscribers will be notified and given at least 30 days notice about the increase.

Universities’ large endowments are going untaxed

Last week, two news items hit my radar screen. Tax reform moved to center stage in Washington, and Harvard University’s not-for-profit endowment underperformed again. These two headlines meld into one for me, since I don’t understand how a college endowment — such as Harvard’s $ 37 billion larder — can be a tax-free entity. Currently, the…

Berkeley allows free speech — by going on lockdown

Mild-mannered conservative commentator Ben Shapiro spoke at UC-Berkeley Thursday night, and the world didn’t come to an end. But the campus was on near-lockdown in what officials called “unprecedented” security, with a half-mile perimeter of concrete barriers and a “highly visible” police presence. That, it seems, was enough to deter Black Bloc, Antifa and other…

The Apple Watch Series 3 is going to cost you $10 per month, forever

Apple Watch 3 cellular plan cost

Apple announced the Apple Watch Series 3 during its blockbuster presentation today, and (surprise!) it’s the best wearable Apple’s ever made. The big upgrade is that the Series 3 comes with LTE connectivity, so you can make calls and stream music separate from your iPhone.

But that added convenience is going to cost you. To be exact, it’ll be an additional $ 10 a month on your cellular bill for as long as you want an internet-connected watch.

Video shows how Face ID on the iPhone X is going to work

iPhone 8 Facial Recognition

It’s almost amusing, really. With Tim Cook promising to double down on product secrecy, the biggest iPhone leaks we’ve seen in recent months haven’t come from anonymous sources within the supply chain, but from Apple itself. Over the weekend, someone decided to leak the iOS 11 GM and developers have since spent hours poring over all sorts of new iOS 11 features that Apple was hoping to surprise us with on Tuesday. Most recently, Guilherme Rambo unearthed assets which provide us with an interesting look at the Face ID setup process on the iPhone 8. Recall, the iPhone X is doing away with the home button — and with it, Touch ID — in favor of an advanced facial recognition system dubbed Face ID.
