EXCLUSIVE: Stella McCartney Takes the Plunge Into Men’s Swimwear

STAR OF THE SEA: Stella McCartney is plunging into men’s swimwear with a debut collection that launches Tuesday in partnership ISA SpA, the Italian textile manufacturer, WWD has learned.
Animal and tropical prints — including a jaunty parrot one — from the ready-to-wear collection, star embroidery and a geometric pattern have been cast onto boxers, briefs, rash guards, cover-ups, towels and sustainable beach totes made in Kenya. The color palette includes lavender, yellow, blush pink and bottle green for the organic cotton and recycled nylon fabrics.
McCartney said because she designs swimwear for women, it was only right that she should do the same for men, and that launching the collection felt like a natural progression.
“It’s a fantastic opportunity to broaden the men’s collection. I wanted to explore an area of a man’s wardrobe that is important and is perhaps slightly under-designed at times. And I wanted to bring the personality of the man into swimwear, so the relationship of the man and the woman on the beach has consistency.”
The collection will drop at the designer’s boutiques and on her web site and will also be stocked at stores including Harrods, Matchesfashion.com and Mr Porter. Prices range from 155 pounds to 255 pounds for

Milo Ventimiglia Fell Into the Pool at HBO’s Golden Globes 2018 Afterparty

Making a splash! Milo Ventimiglia fell into the pool while attending HBO’s Golden Globes afterparty at The Beverly Hilton hotel in Beverly Hills on Sunday, January 7.

The This Is Us star, 40, recalled the incident via his Instagram Story late Sunday evening. “Good time at the Globes tonight,” Ventimiglia, who sported a wet hairdo and switched his suit and tie for a black t-shirt and glasses, said in the clip.

“Congratulations Sterling. Excited,” the Gilmore Girls alum added, praising his costar and onscreen son, Sterling K. Brown, for winning Best Actor in a TV Drama. “And everyone else, great night.”

Ventimiglia then held up a script from an upcoming episode of the NBC series, confirming that he is “back home” and “studying for [filming] tomorrow.” Finally, the Heroes actor addressed his soaking hair: “And yes, I fell in the pool.”

Although the pool was mostly covered, NPR reporter Eric Deggans took to Twitter to share a snapshot of an uncovered area of water that he saw Ventimiglia slip into.

“At HBO’s Golden Globes party,” Deggans wrote. “Believe I just saw Milo Ventimiglia from This Is Us slip and fall into the pool, which is mostly covered but open in one spot…”

Earlier in the evening, the Emmy nominee walked the red carpet and posed for photos with Brown and more of his This Is Us costars, including Mandy Moore and Justin Hartley. He was later seen snapping selfies with fans at HBO’s bash.

Bella Thorne squeezes into a sexy Santa corset for raunchy festive snap

BELLA Thorne delivers a Christmas treat to her Instagram fans as she poses in racy festive lingerie.

The red-haired US star, 29m wore a Santa hat with the lace-up corset, suspenders and stockings for the scintillating social media post.

Instagram

Bella Thorne looks racy as ever just in time for Christmas[/caption]

Bella captioned the pic, which has picked up almost 300,000 likes in a matter of hours: “It’s starting to feel a lot like Christmas.”

The kooky former Disney star attracted waves of comments on the post, including “you naughty vixen” and “little boys look away”.

The festive post comes a week after the actress took to her Instagram stories to post a risque picture of her bare breasts with lots of little stars underneath – after asking fans to help her choose a tattoo.

With her arm covering her nipples, Bella lifted her boobs to show off the potential new inking, while writing sat under the other breast.

She captioned the shot: “Should I get this tat” with an in love emoji, before posting a boomerang shot of her chest.

The tattoo wouldn’t be Bella’s first, as she already has around 10 inkings on her body, including a kitten behind her ear.

 

She also has the number 93 in red ink on her forearm, the words wild and kitty on the back of her calves, and cat whiskers on her right index finger.

Bella isn’t afraid to flash the flesh on social media

Bella also has an outline of a heart on the palm of her right hand, a similar design on her left shoulder, and a wrist tattoo which reads B2 – Bella Squared.

The inking is a tribute to her best friend Bella Pendergast.

The actress also has a crescent moon and two stars on her ankle, which she got with sister Dani to celebrate her 23rd birthday back in 2016.

Her most recent inkings include an elbow tattoo which features tiny dots and lines of various sizes fanning out from around her elbow.

Bella showed off her ‘bite me’ tattoo last month
Fans loved the new design on her hip



She also went topless on Instagram to show off a tattoo on her upper back near her arm pit which reads “I Love You” in colourful ink before posting another picture to show off a one on her hip which says “Bite Me”.

Bella has no problem with nudity, having recently stripped completely naked for GQ.

Fans were loving the designs, with compliments like “lit as f***”, “so cute” and “I’m obsessed” flooding into the comments.

8 Enthralling Anime Vampires Worth Sinking Your Time Into

It’s no surprise that vampires are popular characters in anime. Anime vampires are among the most popular characters.

Authors like Bram Stroker and Anne Rice romanticized these undead creatures, imparting them with beauty, charm, and setting them against Gothic backdrops. These beautiful characteristics and aesthetics — as well as their monstrous, bloodthirsty, true forms — are vividly brought to life in anime.

Here are eight enthralling anime vampires to watch.

Saya from Blood+


saya blood plus

Don’t let Saya Otonashi’s small schoolgirl appearance fool you. She’s actually a Chiropteran (giant blood-sucking bat) queen. Saya and her twin sister Diva were awakened in the 1830s. The twins were separated, with Saya living among a human family. She aged to her teen years, but stopped after that. One of the most interesting things about Blood+ is that it is historically based; flashbacks show Saya experiencing the Russian Revolution and the Vietnam War. She’s not alone though — she turned her companion Hagi into her chevalier (literally, a knight) and together they hunt down Diva and other Chiropterans.

Alucard from Hellsing


alucard van hellsing

Alucard (Dracula spelled backwards) is the protagonist of the Hellsing anime and a more “traditional” vampire. Extremely powerful and nearly immortal, Alucard is the Hellsing Organization’s most formidable weapon in hunting down other vampires and monsters. His vampire background grant him many abilities, including superhuman strength, speed, and a very healthy ego. He does have some compassion though, offering to save the life of Seras Victoria.

Seras Victoria from Hellsing


seras victoria van helsing

Seras Victoria was a young police officer turned vampire. She was sired by Alucard after suffering a near-fatal gunshot wound to the chest. Afterwards, she opted to join her “father” in the Hellsing Organization. While she’s not as powerful as Alucard, she possesses many of the same extraordinary abilities. She retained one ability before her transformation: expert marksmanship. Her favorite weapon is a Harkonnen rifle she can snipe her enemies with.

D from Vampire Hunter D


vampire hunter d

D, the title character in the Vampire Hunter D series, is an enigma. He’s a dhampir, a mixed blood child of a human and vampire noble. Whereas Blood+ takes place in the past and present, Vampire Hunter D takes place in a post-apocalyptic future. Humans, vampires and mutants run rampant in the Frontier, and it’s D’s occupation (per the title) to hunt down the monsters.

Staz from Blood Lad


staz charlie blood

Like D, Staz Charlie Blood is a vampire comes from noble lineage, but his contains demonic blood. That gives Staz some remarkable magical powers, which manifest in a hand-shaped aura.

Unlike some of the entries on this list, Staz is a lot more easy going. Like many teens, Staz is an otaku, or someone obsessed with manga and anime, a wink-wink to the series fans. Manga and anime drive many of Staz’s decisions and choices in his quest to save his crush, Yanagi Fuyumi.

Moka from Rosario + Vampire


moka akashiya rosario vampire

Moka Akashiya is a beautiful Vampiress and star of the series Rosario + Vampire. Rosario in the title refers to the rosary she wears around her neck. In lore, crosses are meant to ward off vampires. The same holds true here … sort of. The rosary seals in Moka’s inner personality — the vampire one — and creates and external outer personality based upon her mother. The rosary lets both sides communicate to each other. It’s a constant internal struggle for the title character, as she literally battles her inner evil as well as feelings for Tsukino Aono.

Abel Nightroad from Trinity Blood


abel nightroad trinity blood

Another manga and anime vampire series set in a post apocalyptic future, Trinity Blood follows the adventure of Abel Nightroad aka Crusnik 2.

Interesting, Abel vampiric form is not triggered by a curse or being bitten. He was fused with Crusnik nanomachines (small sentient robots) that give him extraordinary (and frightening) powers, including a gigantic scythe formed by his own blood.

Trinity Blood is definitely a mature series full of religious and dark themes.

Sunako Kirishiki from Shiki


sunako kirishiki shiki

Sunako Kirishiki is a shiki, or corpse demon, in the series with the same title.

Outwardly, she appears as a young girl. She was human at one point, but her wealthy family offered lodging to a mysterious foreigner, who befriends and then bites her. Sunako awakens in a coffin, claws her way out, and notices something inside her has changed. She has a hunger she can’t quell, and is forced to separate from her loved ones.

Shiki is really a story about belonging, and how Sunako is trapped by her curse and her inability to age.

How This Haitian-American Social Entrepreneur Turned Mourning Into Motivation

In case you didn’t know, the Centers for Disease Control reports African Americans are the racial/ethnic group most affected by HIV in the United States. So in honor of World HIV Day, we caught up with Yanatha Desouvre, a man on a mission to continue the legacy of Daniel Coulanges, Desouvre’s guitarist uncle and godfather who died in 1989 of HIV at age 28.

 

 

In 2016, Desouvre discovered lost footage of his uncle’s music. “My uncle Amos Coulanges, a world-renowned classical guitarist, told me there was a rare video featuring Daniel Coulange, his baby brother, performing at a University in Staten Island,” said Desouvre. “I was skeptical but the person who had the footage mailed it to him in France and my uncle shipped the VHS converted to DVD video to me in Miami.”

“I have a wonderful, noisy home full of little ones, however, when I popped in the video everything went quiet. The minute Uncle Daniel started playing he was speaking to me through his music and with every string he plucked I cried. Songs like “Killing Me Softly,” “Ne Me Quitte Pas (Don’t Leave Me),” and “Don’t Cry for Me Argentina” tugged on my heart and soul.”

 

From Mourning to Motivation

 

What would you like people to take away from your uncle’s career and life?

My uncle had HIV in 1989, during that time it was a death sentence. This was also two years before Magic Johnson announced he was diagnosed with HIV, yet he’s still alive and thriving. So I would like people to #knowyourstatus—whether HIV positive or negative. If you’re HIV positive you can live a prosperous life with the tremendous drugs and resources that are available. If you are HIV negative, still check on your status with your annual physical exam.

My godfather had a short-lived musical career, but he lived a vibrant life. I would like anyone reading about Daniel Coulanges or hearing his music to pursue their dreams and share your talent with the world because you never know who you will inspire. You also never know when you will take your last breath.

 

What’s your vision for Daniel Coulanges’s work?

I’m doing an Indiegogo project to raise funds to master, produce, and manufacture the 18 music tracks I was able to extract from the video. The crowdfunding will fund the production and digital distribution for the project. With proceeds from the album sales, I plan to start virtual or brick and mortar Daniel Coulanges Center for Arts, Technology, and Business workshops to show artists (writers, painters, musicians, etc.) the business of art and understand how technology can enhance their art as well.

Can You Be Forced Into Signing a Contract?

signing-a-contract

With legal documents, it is generally assumed that the person who signed them did so because they wanted to. But what if you feel you’ve been forced into signing something that you wouldn’t normally agree to?

In this post, we take a closer look at terms such as undue influence, coercion, and duress, and how these factors affect a contract’s validity.

What is an Example of Undue Influence?

Undue influence is when someone pressures another person into signing a contract. Undue influence usually focuses more on how the relationship between the parties may have affected the circumstances behind signing the contract.

As an example, let’s say a wealthy grandmother, named Wendy, fell ill, and as a result her granddaughter, Jill, decided to move in with her.

When Wendy passed away, the other members of the family discovered that in Wendy’s Will, she left Jill in control of her bank accounts. Another grandchild, Brent, contests that Wendy was under undue influence in leaving control of her bank accounts to Jill. In this case, there would be a presumption of undue influence due to the fact that Jill lived with Wendy.

Because the law presumes that undue influence has occurred because Jill is benefiting from the contract, Jill would need to provide proof that Wendy was not unduly influenced. Jill could provide evidence that Wendy was not the victim of undue influence by showing that Wendy consulted an attorney for council without Jill being present.

What is an Example of Coercion or Duress?

Coercion or duress is when someone is forced to perform an act (such as signing a legal document) against his or her will by using threats, physical violence, psychological pressure, or other tactics.

Going off the same example from above, if the same situation occurred but it turned out that Jill threatened Wendy with physical violence in order to get her to leave her money, then that situation would be considered coercion or duress, since Wendy was forced to make the decision to leave her money to Jill or be a victim of physical violence.

Can Duress Make a Contract Voidable?

If it can be proven that one of the parties that signed the contract was under duress, then the contract would be considered voidable. Usually, an investigation would take place into the circumstances of the contract, including the relationship between the parties and how that may have affected the potential of one of them feeling pressured to sign.

Although there is no United States law stating that writing some form of “under duress” near your signature or somewhere on the contract will render the contract voidable, there are some sources that suggest this is a possible tactic.

As an example, Diane James, a politician from the United Kingdom, was allegedly pressured into becoming the new leader of the UK Independence Party in the fall of 2016. It was reported that she wrote “under duress” in Latin on the official forms that she needed to sign in order to take over the party. James ended up resigning from her position a mere 18 days later, and the “under duress” was accepted as simply an indication that she may have been pressured into signing the documents.

It is important to realize that if one of the parties that signed a contract stated that they were pressured into doing so, an investigation would occur and that there is no guarantee that writing some form of “under duress” on the contract would automatically render the contract voidable.

What Should I Do if I Think I’ve Been Forced to Sign a Contract?

Before you sign any type of contract, you should ensure that you have read the document completely and that you understand the entirety of its contents before you sign it.

If you feel you were forced or coerced into signing a contract, you should seek legal counsel by consulting an attorney that is familiar with your state’s contract law. In order to prove that coercion took place, they will need to carefully analyze the specific circumstances that led you to sign the document(s) and why you couldn’t have simply declined. An attorney can help you determine what the next steps should be, and guide you along in the process of potentially getting your contract revoked.

This hack for smuggling snacks into a movie theater is pure genius

by

Michelle Stein

posted in Parenting

If you’re planning on hitting up the theater as a family this holiday season, there’s plenty of opportunity to get in that movie fix. Whether it’s Coco, The Star or Wonder for the kiddos, or A Bad Moms Christmas for a girls’ night out, really, you can’t go wrong. And if you’re anything like me, that means skipping the overpriced popcorn and sneaking in your own snacks.

One woman has taken the concept of movie theater snack smuggling to the next level with a genius hack. Trust me, you’re definitely going to want to try it out yourself. “Thought of a new way to bring more snacks into the movies,” Jessica Ruiz Gonzalez wrote on Facebook on Nov. 14. “And if y’all try it I’d love to see videos or pictures.”

1) Find a JoAnn’s fabric and craft store.

2) Locate the styrofoam section and pick out the one that looks like a bowl.

3) Fill with tons of candy and other snacks. Heck, you could fit an entire meal in there if you wanted. (And keep it warm/cold!)

4) Carefully place everything under an oversized hoodie and viola — a pregnant woman. AKA, the perfect disguise for smuggling theater snacks. Looks pretty legit to me.

Ruiz Gonzalez’s post has attracted more than 12,000 likes and over 194,000 shares in just one week — so clearly, she’s onto something.

“The main idea occurred because I was doing some baby shower shopping with my sister and mom, and I saw the styrofoam bowl,” Ruiz Gonzalez told BabyCenter. “I put it on so I could take a picture to look like my sister and in that moment, my mom was like, ‘You do look pregnant.’ And magically I was like, ‘OMG,  I could totally fill this with food and get in anywhere, especially the movies.’ It was just all a joke, but eventually I posted it just for a laugh. But as you can tell, the majority of the people enjoyed this idea.”

My family tries to cut costs at every corner, and the movie theater is no exception. Although we sometimes spring for a small bag of popcorn to share, we always bring our own drinks and candy. (Those boxes of candy from the dollar store are the best.) I simply stuff it all my purse or in the diaper bag. That way, we don’t end up wasting an extra 30 bucks on overpriced theater junk.

Of course, if you’re actually pregnant, you’ll have to find another way to sneak in your snacks. But for the rest of us, this movie theater hack is just too perfect. I really want to hear from someone who has tried it!

What do you think of this snack hack? How do you sneak snacks into the movie theater?

Sylvester Stallone accused of coercing teen into unwanted sex act in 1986

TwitterFacebook

Sylvester Stallone was accused in 1986 of coercing a woman into a threesome with his bodyguard at a Las Vegas hotel room where she had arrived at the Rocky star’s invitation, according to a police report that never resulted in criminal charges.

The account, never before been made public, surfaced Thursday in the Daily Mail. The woman was 16 at the time, which the police report states she had disclosed to Stallone and is the age of consent in Nevada.

Michelle Bega, spokeswoman for Stallone, shared this statement with us: “This is a ridiculous, categorically false story. No one was ever aware of this story until it was published today, including Mr. Stallone. At no time was Mr. Stallone ever contacted by any authorities or anyone else regarding this matter.” Read more…

Jack Antonoff Shares Insight Into the Making of Taylor Swift’s ‘New Year’s Day’

Out of all the producers Taylor Swift teamed up with for her new album Reputation, one was the indie-pop favorite collaborator Jack Antonoff.

While Antonoff fronts his own band, Bleachers, he also is busy in the studio working with artists like Lorde and St. Vincent to bring their latest albums to life, too.

After Swift performed one of her Antonoff-co-written songs on Monday night’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon to an emotional reception, the producer took to Twitter to share a little bit of the back story of the piano-driven ballad “New Year’s Day.”

“Taylor doing New Year’s Day on Fallon was beautiful,” Antonoff wrote. “That song means a lot to me. Happened so quickly at my apartment. We texted the next morning to make sure it wasn’t a dream.”

It’s the only ballad and the final track on the much-hyped album, detailing the decaying glitter of the day after a big party — and the tender nostalgia of everyday, through-thick-and-thin love. With specific references that paint a vivid, recognizable picture — “Girls carrying their shoes down in the lobby / Candle wax and Polaroids on the hardwood floor” — it might also be one of her most relatable tracks on Reputation.

Some very interesting new research into AI image recognition has revealed a stunning vulnerability that will make you think twice the next time someone tells you computer algorithms are outpacing human intelligence.

The research team, which is comprised for MIT grad students and undergrads from the student-run LabSix group, were able to create 3D objects that look perfectly identifiable to human eyes, but completely confuse AI object recognition software. The team’s “3D adversarial objects” throw the object recognition algorithms for a loop, making the computers think they’re looking at something they’re really not, and it’s honestly incredible.

A Look Into Jay-Z’s Charity Concert With J.Lo, Daddy Yankee and More

Celebs continue to rally help for the victims affected by natural disasters in the last couple of months. Days after Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony put together a star-studded telethon concert titled “Somos Una Voz Live” in multiple cities, Jay-Z threw his third annual charity concert,“TIDAL X: Brooklyn” in New York City, but this time around he donated all ticket sales to organizations supporting victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria, as well as the earthquake in Mexico.

In the last two years, the music and entertainment platform TIDAL donated proceeds to Robin Hood, the largest poverty-fighting organization in New York and the New World Foundation, which aims to advance “positive community relations and effect systemic change for the development and sustainability of just societies,” as it states on its website. Bacardi, the iconic spirits brand, sponsored the presentation, also donating $ 1.3 million specifically to TIDAL X: Brooklyn charities.

This year, was all about the multiple cities that have faced devastation from recent natural disasters.

Among those joining the good cause and eventful night were Jay Z, Jennifer Lopez, Stevie Wonder, DJ Khaled, Chris Brown, Cardi B, Fat Joe, Daddy Yankee, Luis Fonsi and a special appearance from Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Lopez, being in her home state, performed throwback songs like “Jenny From The Block” and “I’m Real,” with a backdrop of New York City and the 6 train line, the subway the runs through her old neighborhood in the Bronx. Before composer and lyricist Miranda introduced his fellow Puerto Rican onto the stage, he shared a heartfelt message: “For every generation, there are moments that define you… These are the moment’s history remembers. Tonight, through music, TIDAL has brought together people across generations, backgrounds together to support the people of Puerto Rico. On behalf of mi gente (my people), thank you! We refuse to stay silent.”

Jay Z stayed true to the New York theme of the night by performing “Empire State of Mind,” while Latin stars like Daddy Yankee performed his 2004 smash single “Gasolina,” and Cardi B stole the show with her No. 1 hit “Bodak Yellow,” which had the audience yelling for an encore.

The concert aired live on Tidal. Donate to the cause here.

How ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Turns Valkyrie Into a Member of Asgard’s SEAL Team Six

Valkyrie is the newest superhero in the MCU. Played by Tessa Thompson in Thor: Ragnarok, Valkyrie is an Asgardian warrior, ripped from the pages of Marvel comics, where in turn she was based on a character of the same name from Norse mythology.

But the celluloid Valkyrie is different to any version that has gone before; a very modern warrior, and member of what one Thor producer has termed “Odin’s SEAL Team Six.” The following is therefore everything you need to know about your new favourite kick-ass heroine.

Valkyrie in Norse Mythology


Norse Valkyrie.

In Norse mythology, Valkyrie is a female figure who decides which fallen warriors gain admittance to Valhalla. She’s one of a host of women who choose which soldiers live and die in battle, and then accompany them into the afterlife, where they join the Odin to fight by his side during Ragnarok.

Valkyrie is oftentimes portrayed as a romantic character in poetry; a beautiful, charming, noble maiden who, when not protecting the fallen, is prone to falling in love with heroic mortal men.

But there are more sinister versions of Valkyrie that revolve around her taking pleasure in predicting the dark destiny of warriors, and even using magic to ensure she gets her picks into the afterlife.

Valkyrie in the Comics


Comic book Valkyrie.

Created by Roy Thomas and John Buscema in December 1980, the comic book version of Valkyrie first appeared in The Avengers #83. Kind of. This first incarnation wasn’t the real Valkyrie, but rather a disguise used by the Enchantress. It wasn’t until Defenders #4 in February 1973 that we got Valkyrie proper.

In that version she assumed the human body of Barbara Norris for some time. Though that wasn’t the only human form Valkyrie took, with the character also inhabiting the bodies of Samantha Parrington and Sian Bowen in later adventures.

That was on Earth. On Asgard, Valkyrie was actually Brunnhilde, selected by Odin to lead the Valkyrior who — much like their Norse counterparts — would shepherd fallen warriors into Valhalla.

Valkyrie is the strongest of the Valkyrior, with the usual Asgardian powers of strength, stamina, and superhuman skills in battle, largely revolving around her magic sword Dragonfang.

That aforementioned job also means she has some pretty unusual powers, including seeing when the end is approaching for the living, and being able to transport those who are passing away to the realm of the dead.

Valkyrie in Thor: Ragnarok


Movie Valkyrie, doing battle with Loki.

In Thor: Ragnarok, Valkyrie draws on elements from both the comics and mythology, but also adds something fresh and modern to the equation.

Tessa Thompson told Collider: “Norse mythology is mystifying and fantastic and totally confusing, but you can draw a lot of inspiration from it. The exciting thing for us was to create a Valkyrie that is a combination of all those things. If you look at her origin in the comics, sometimes she’s on earth, sometimes she’s on Asgard, sometimes she’s with The Fearless Defenders; it’s all different. So it left us a lot of leeway. The cool thing about working with [director] Taika [Waititi] is he has a healthy respect for the comics but also a total irreverence in the sense that he’s like ‘Let’s create something new.’”

On the film’s set, producer Brad Winderbaum told IGN that this film version is more like a modern-day soldier or marine. “In terms of Valkyrie as an idea, Valkyrie in the comics is traditionally the character Brunnhilde, who comes to be known as Valkyrie,” he explained. “And calling someone Valkyrie is like referring to someone as solider. Our view of the Valkyrie in the MCU is that they were basically Odin’s special ops, you know, his SEAL team six.”

In terms of look, in a progressive move, Marvel has cast the very non-white, non-blonde Thompson as a character that’s traditionally white and blonde (“Idris Elba needs company. He can’t be the only black person in the neighbourhood,” Thompson joked with Collider). And regarding costume, Valkyrie will have two uniforms, starting the film in something akin to what she wears in the comics, and then wearing more battle-ready leather and chainmail late on, with the character wielding two daggers, and a sword that’s very probably Dragonfang.

As the film begins, Winderbraum reveals that she has “suffered the trauma of war and we meet her in a really low place,” and we reckon that’s probably because of something that the film’s villain Hela has done.

She also appears to be working as some kind of bounty hunter for Grandmaster on Sakaar, with Thompson telling Entertainment Weekly “She does have a relationship with Jeff Goldblum’s character — it’s a business relationship.”

The film’s trailer backs that up, featuring a shot of Valkyrie dragging Thor into what’s very probably Grandmaster’s ‘Contest of Champions.’ But it sounds like the pair soon make friends, with Thompson telling Collider “She’s no longer with her tribe of Valkyrie anymore. She meets Thor and Hulk and they have a similar goal. They become friends and teammates in a way.”

So expect to see Valkyrie, Thor and Hulk doing battle with Hela at the end of Ragnarok, and potentially turning into a team that’s carried over into the forthcoming Avengers: Infinity War.

“In the next phase, the hope is to find ways to interweave all these characters” Thomspon told EW. “Certainly with Infinity War, those are the culmination of a lot of work since Iron Man. She’s part of the tapestry now.”

Thor: Ragnarok hits UK screens on October 24 and US screens on November 3.

3 Budget-friendly Ways to Invite Autumn Into Your Home

The onset of fall marks a couple of big milestones, such as back-to-school, Halloween, and unfortunately for us and our electricity bills, significant dips in temperature outdoors. Luckily there are a myriad of uncomplicated and budget-conscious ways to ensure the vibes inside your home aren’t indicative of the chilly weather outside. Keep reading for three sweet and simple décor ideas for your home, inspired by the commencement of autumn.  

 

Scented Candles 

In addition to working magic on a visual level, (a.k.a. ambiance), candles, particularly of the scented persuasion, can enforce fall-vibes on an olfactory level, as sense of smell is a strong factor in human perception. For strong autumn associations, opt for candles with scents incorporating vanilla, pumpkin, cinnamon, and apple.  

 

Employ the Outdoors 

Is there anything more autumn-esque than a vase full of twigs, berries, and pinecones? We think not! Autumn-inspired crafts using nature are by far the most cost-effective approach to transitioning your decorating scheme into fall-mode, and fortunately, the DIY ideas available on the internet are practically endless. 

 

Colorful Throw Pillows

How ‘Shadow of War’ Fits Into the Tolkienverse

Middle-earth: Shadow of War is the sequel to the critically-acclaimed open world action-adventure game Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. It follows the continuing adventure of the Gondorian ranger Talion and the Elven wraith Celebrimbor as they fight against the forces of Sauron and his armies. Shadow of War takes place within J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth, and while it might not be canon, it is intricately tied into Tolkien’s Legendarium in many ways.

Bridging the gap


It’s not called Shadow of WAR for nothing.

Like its predecessor, Middle-earth: Shadow of War is set between the events of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. With sixty years separating the two stories, this is fertile ground to work in. In story terms, the events of the game occur between the Battle of the Five Armies that is the climax of The Hobbit, but before the onset of the War of the Ring which finally saw Sauron defeated and the destruction of the One Ring. Shadow of War takes advantage of this time gap to insert a uniquely crafted story that is both separate, yet linked to the events that occur before and after.

It is during the time between the two main series that Sauron sets about rebuilding his fortress at Barad-dûr and preparing to make war upon the peoples of Middle-earth. As we all know, Sauron is eventually stopped by two brave Hobbits during a three-book (or movie) road trip. In general terms, the timeframe between the two series is largely unexplored territory – Tolkien set down some events in stone in these intervening years, but there is a lot of room to play in.

In terms of design, Shadow of War and its predecessor draw heavily from the visuals established by Peter Jackson’s movies. The designs of many creatures and principal locations are based on their film counterparts, with new additions influenced by this design aesthetic. This makes sense due to the films being the most visible aspect of Tolkien’s works; both The Hobbit films and The Lord of the Rings trilogy have a unique and highly detailed visual aesthetic. Shadow of War’s use of the same designs creates a visual shorthand that instantly associates it with the film adaptations of Tolkien’s books.

The Celebrimbor connection


Celebrimbor, master smith and forger of the Elven Rings of Power.

The biggest connection tying Shadow of War to the Tolkienverse is undeniably the presence of Celebrimbor. Celebrimbor is the Elven wraith that is bonded to Talion in the events of the first game. Unlike Talion – who is an original creation of the game – Celebrimbor comes straight from Tolkien’s Legendarium.

In Tolkien’s works, Celebrimbor was a Ñoldorin prince who lived in the Second Age (the Third Age being the setting for The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings). He ruled Eregion in the Second Age, and was a master smith. Why is this important? Because it was Celebrimbor who created the three Elven Rings of Power: Vilya, Narya, and Nenya. However, these three rings were not corrupted by Sauron. The Dark Lord tortured Celebrimbor, but the smith would not reveal their location. Dying from his torment, his body was hung from a banner and paraded when Sauron’s forces attacked the Elves.

At the end of the first game, the combined form of Talion and Celebrimbor set upon a new goal – to create a new Ring of Power with which to defeat Sauron and his forces. In terms of canon storytelling, we all know that this plan will probably not exactly work or Frodo Baggins would have spent his years with his feet up safely at Bag End. But who cares? The fun is in the storytelling.

Familiar faces


Apparently, this is Shelob. The giant spider. How times have changed.

Other characters that Tolkien created feature heavily in the game as well. The Dark Lord Sauron himself is the principal villain of the series. Talion and Celebrimbor are both intent on destroying him for the pain and suffering he has personally caused them. Sauron was, of course, the main villain throughout The Lord of the Rings series, and appeared in The Hobbit series as the Necromancer.

The giant spider (shudder) Shelob is also present in Shadow of War. However, in a departure from the usual depiction of Shelob, Shadow of War’s version is apparently capable of assuming a human female form. She speaks and is capable of actually fighting the Nazgûl in this form.

Speaking of the Nazgûl, they and many other enemies in the game are drawn directly from Tolkien’s Legendarium. The Uruks are the most numerous enemy (and ally), while the Olog-hai are a more advanced race of Trolls bred by Sauron in the late Third Age.

It is not just creatures that make the jump from Tolkien’s works to the game. Familiar locations from Mordor and beyond are featured as well, including Sauron’s fortress of Barad-dûr, the imposing Black Gate, and the dark strongholds of Minas Morgul and Cirith Ungol. In all the ways that matter, Shadow of War feels like a living part of the Tolkienverse.


Middle-Earth: Shadow of War comes out for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 10.

A Corruption Probe Into College Hoops Exposes More Than Shady Deals

The criminal complaint unveiled in late September contained all sorts of unsavory details about college basketball’s underground economy: five-figure bribes to coaches, six-figure payouts to high school players and their families, and the alleged complicity of employees at some of the nation’s most prominent universities.

The 10 defendants “allegedly exploited the hoop dreams of student-athletes around the country,” said Joon H. Kim, the acting U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. The FBI opened a tip line, and officials suggested more bombshells to come.

It was a public service but not only in the ways federal investigators intended. Indeed, the lasting legacy of the probe into the corruption of college hoops may turn out to be a government-backed reminder of the hypocrisy at the heart of big-time college sports.

The NCAA, which governs most intercollegiate sports in the U.S., requires that athletes maintain their amateur status in order to play. That means they can’t accept any compensation beyond an athletic scholarship and a meager cost-of-living stipend, or profit from their likeness in any way.

The NCAA and the colleges where these athletes play, however, are free to cash in. And boy, do they: Under Armour is paying UCLA roughly $ 18.7 million per year to be its exclusive shoe and apparel sponsor; the College Football Playoff sold its broadcast rights for more than $ 7 billion over 12 years; while TV rights for March Madness, the men’s basketball tournament that accounts for the bulk of the NCAA’s revenue, fetch more than $ 700 million annually.

It’s little wonder there was an opening for the kinds of payoffs and kickbacks detailed by the feds. Among the allegations: an Adidas employee and representatives of sports-management and investment-services companies funneled $ 100,000 to a top high school recruit in exchange for his commitment to attend the University of Louisville and sign with Adidas and work with the companies in question once he turned pro. After the news was made public, Louisville placed head coach Rick Pitino, whose success on the court has lately been overshadowed by negative headlines off of it, on administrative leave. (Pitino denied any knowledge of the accusations.) The complaint also accused Auburn associate head coach Chuck Person, a former NBA player, of accepting a bribe to steer one of his players to a financial adviser as a client. (An attorney for Person declined comment.)

That coaches and others in a position of trust would prey on younger people in their care is a shame. But the current system, which allows major institutions to reap large profits from the unpaid labor of students, should not escape judgment. “I can imagine this alternative universe where paying players is legal and above the table and coaches wouldn’t have had to lie,” says Nathaniel Grow, a professor of business law and ethics at Indiana University’s Kelley School of Business. Even the language used by U.S. attorney Kim shows how easy it is to fall into the NCAA’s linguistic trap. How, exactly, is an athlete receiving $ 100,000 in exchange for his services being “exploited”? Isn’t “enriched” a more appropriate descriptor?

The consequences of the investigation could ripple far beyond the basketball court. If the tip line gets as much inbound traffic as many observers expect and more players are found to have received payments–in violation of the NCAA’s restrictions on compensating the athletes that fans pay to see–the NCAA will be forced to punish Louisville and perhaps dozens of other top programs. Scholarships will be stripped, denying opportunities to future student-athletes and potentially hurting low-revenue sports that are subsidized by big-time hoops.

Some of the housecleaning to come is necessary. Top-tier college basketball has long been a bit of a cesspool, filled with too slick coaches and hangers-on with their hands out. Still, the game can be a force for good. Many athletes take their studies seriously. They learn to lead and manage their time and benefit from the experience throughout their lives. These athletes deserve to be fairly compensated for their labor, through a system that is legal, clean and transparent. Anything less will ensure that the current criminal investigation won’t be the last.

4 How-To Tips to Get Your Child Into Modeling

After our story a couple of years ago on 50 Cent’s two-year-old landing a $ 700,000 modeling campaign, many of you shared adorable photos of your little ones on our Facebook  page and asked for child modeling advice.

We did a little research over the weekend and found some valuable insight into the industry. Keep in mind that making $ 700,000 is very rare, even for adult models, and probably won’t be the case for your child.

Before investing the time into finding your child an agency and going on castings, first make sure that modeling is something that he is genuinely excited about. Your kid should never feel pressured to model or feel like you will be mad if he decides it’s not something he wants to do. Once you’re certain that your little one is really on board, take note of the tips below.

Take Clear and Clean Photos

When taking snapshots of your kid, note that less is more. As adorable as the photo of him with cake and sprinkles all of over his face may be, that typically isn’t the photo that agencies want to see. Instead, he should be facing the camera; no hat, sunglasses or makeup. “You can easily take this kind of picture at home with a digital camera,” according to BabyCenter.com. “Make sure the pictures show your child’s features and take a variety of poses, including head shots and full-body shots.” The photos should be in color.

Once you’ve taken several quality photos, send two to three by mail to reputable agencies “with a self-addressed, stamped envelope and a short letter stating your interest,” Charles Ramsey, owner of Product Model Management in New York City, tells Parents.com.

 

Don’t Spend a Fortune on Photos

You don’t have to spend hundreds and thousands of dollars on professional photos. Some agencies may try to convince you that this is necessary, but it is not and agencies that say otherwise are probably running a scam. Margaret Pelino of Ford Models tells Parents.com, “But why would you spend a fortune taking pictures of, say, a 3-year-old? He’s not going to look the way he does for very long.” Simple at-home snapshots are actually preferred among many top agencies. An agency may ask if you have a composite card (a card with several small photos of your child) which shouldn’t cost much more than $ 200.

Never Pay Money Upfront

One of the biggest signs that an agency is conning you is if they ask you for money upfront. Most reputable agencies will not start taking money until your child has been signed and companies are booking him for work. Parents.com says that once the model is signed, the agencies “usually take a cut of about 20 percent from you for setting up each modeling job and the same sum from the company that hires your child.” If an agency is trying to persuade you to pay any initial fees, especially if they’re costly, decline their offer and continue your search for representation elsewhere.

Go With a Reputable and Registered Agency

Doing your research on agencies is critical so that your child is protected and has a good experience. Pick an agency that is registered with the Better Business Bureau and one that has an impressive portfolio to reflect their credibility. You representation should have some proof, whether a page on their website or via their social media, of campaigns that they’ve booked for their clients. For example, Future Faces’ official Facebook page has multiple photos of their clients in ads for top brands like Ruum and H&M.

For safety purposes, never leave your child alone with an agent or photographer. Be with him at all times, even if the agency is reputable, to ensure that his physical and emotional safety are protected.

Downsizing Tips if You’re Moving Into a Condo

Downsizing used to be a term with inherently negative connotations, associated with struggling companies and job loss; however, a large-scale heightened interest in minimalistic living has all but given renewed life to the term. Now, when we hear the word downsizing, it’s associated with a low-stress, low-mess lifestyle, making it an attractive concept for consumers of all ages. Planning a move to a smaller dwelling? We’ve got some downsizing tips to help ease your transition in a low-stress, low-mess manner.  

 

Adopt a Positive Mindset  

Let’s face it, getting rid of your stuff is hardly an easy feat, and for some, particularly first-time downsizers, it can be downright depressing. Which is why it’s so important to keep the benefits of downsizing at the forefront of your mind. When it doubt, remind yourself how much easier it will be to move, unpack, and keep organized long after your move with less stuff in tow.  

 

Make a List of “Keepers” 

Another way to combat any downsizing blues, if you have any, is to make a list of your must-have possessions. Try to maintain the mindset that everything that’s not on this list is expendable.  

 

Duplicates and “Just in Case” 

Moving to a smaller space gives you the opportunity to reevaluate your belongings, and whether you are holding onto things because you actually need them, or because you think that someday you might. Keep in mind that if you haven’t used something in the last few years, you probably don’t need it at all. When auditing your belongings, a good place to start is the kitchen and the garage, as these areas tend to have less sentimental value. 

 

Get a Second Opinion  

If you find that you’re having trouble letting things go, it might be time for a second opinion. These are your belongings and that simple fact likely prevents you from being objective; sometimes all it takes is some tough love from a friend or family member to get the downsizing process in motion.
