Fox Searchlight Is Making a Cheetos Movie, But It's Not What You Think

But this isn't exactly branded entertainment in the way we expect after movies like Battleship, The Lego Movie and Ouija. Variety reports that Fox Searchlight is producing a movie called Flamin' Hot, which is about the man who created the spicy flavor of the iconic…

It’s On Sale: Denim Repairs

Ever since the raw denim revival has blown up in the US, dozens of specialty repair shops have cropped up to help people preserve their favorite pair of jeans. Denim is a hardy fabric, but – when worn day-in, day-out – even the best-made jeans will start wearing thin. And, at some point, they’ll develop holes. 

I get my jeans repaired about once a year at Denim Therapy. They’re just one of the many shops nowadays that specialize in something known as darning, which is where a seamstress covers up a hole by essentially “weaving” in new material. The result is sturdier than a simple patch job – which is what you’ll get at a more common alterations tailor – and when done with matching threads, it’ll look a lot less conspicuous. Which is good for areas like, you know, your crotch. 

At the moment, Denim Therapy is offering a 15% discount on all reweaving repairs. If you’re outside of NYC and can’t drop your jeans off at their shop, you’ll have to mail them in. For a basic repair, as well as the cost of shipping back and forth, you can expect to pay between $ 50 and $ 75. That’s about the price of entry-level raw denim nowadays, but this way, you get to wear your favorite pair of jeans a bit longer. And like with good leather shoes, the charm of denim is all about how the material looks as it ages. 

Note, in order to get the discount, your jeans have to be in their shop by March 9th. If you’re mailing these in, factor in a week for shipping. You can also see this post for some examples of things I’ve had done at Denim Therapy

At any given moment, I have, on average, five unread text messages, a couple unread Instagram messages, dozens of unseen Twitter DMs, and close to 1,000 unread emails along with a smattering of other messages on services like Facebook, Snapchat, and Slack.

Yes, it’s possible for a transgender woman to breastfeed

by

Michelle Stein

posted in Parenting

To me, the ability to produce food that’s perfectly tailored to an infant’s nutritional needs is endlessly fascinating — the mechanics behind it, that is. Did you know that adoptive mothers can induce lactation? Yep.

Even cooler? Lactation can be induced in transgender women. And the first-ever case to be documented in academic literature has arrived.

A 30-year-old transgender woman was able to successfully breastfeed her baby, according to a case study published in Transgender Health. “Transgender medicine is becoming part of mainstream medicine. We’re getting more evidence-based data, we’re getting more standardized care, we’re getting more reproductive options,” said Tamar Reisman of Mount Sinai hospital in New York, one of the doctors involved in the case.

The transgender woman approached doctors about breastfeeding after her 5-months-pregnant partner had expressed that she didn’t want to nurse their baby, The Guardian reported. According to the study, the patient had been taking hormone therapy for six years, but had not undergone gender reassignment or breast augmentation. To induce lactation, the transgender woman started a regimen of female hormones — progesterone and estradiol — was instructed to stimulate her chest with a breast pump and took domperidone to increase milk production.

A month later, the patient was producing droplets of milk, The Washington Post reported. And three months into her treatment plan, she could produce roughly 8 ounces of milk each day. What’s more is the patient was able to exclusively breastfeed for the first six weeks, and “the child’s growth, feeding, and bowel habits were developmentally appropriate,” according to the child’s pediatrician. The patient later ended up supplementing with formula because she wasn’t producing enough milk. But still! Pretty cool stuff.

Joshua Safer, an endocrinologist at Boston Medical Center — who wasn’t involved in the case — told the New Scientist the report is “a very big deal.” Safer added, “Many transgender women are looking to have as many of the experiences of non-transgender women as they can, so I can see this will be extremely popular,”

Honestly, I think this is freaking awesome. The benefits of breastfeeding aren’t exactly a secret these days. So if transgender women are willing and able to breastfeed, then why not? It’s a win-win situation.

Did you know induced lactation was a thing?

Jessica Biel just changed her hair color, and it’s a gorgeous shade of buttery blonde

Jessica Biel recently changed up her hair color, and we are absolutely loving it. The actress transformed her hair into a gorgeous cream soda buttery blonde color, and our locks are totally jealous. The process to go from brunette to blonde usually takes a long time. Like, we’re talking upwards of eight hours. But Jessica Biel’s stylist Tracey Cunningham only had ONE HOUR to do the color! Fortunately, Cunningham wasn’t starting with dark hair. But still. One hour?! That’s just one episode of This Is Us.

“Jessica was already two highlight services in, so luckily we weren’t starting with her natural base color,” Cunningham explained to Refinery29. “This time I used Redken Flash Lift to give her a full head of foiled highlights and balayaged the ends to take her as blonde as she wanted to go.” Having an assistant also made the process go faster: “I had a second set of hands so we could work quickly and efficiently. I don’t think I could have done it this fast without her help.”

We’re glad to know it wasn’t hair sorcery or something reserved only for celebrities. Although that would be pretty cool.

Here’s Jessica Biel’s new buttery blonde hair.

We can’t believe it took only an hour!

Cunningham knows blonde. She also gave Khloé Kardashian this gorgeous golden color.

And she gave Margot Robbie this beautiful blonde ‘do.

You’re a true master of your craft, Tracey Cunningham. Have any open appointment slots?

Kylie Jenner revealed Stormi’s last name, and it’s not what we were expecting

After Kylie Jenner announced the birth of her first child, we had to make up for lost time. There’s so much to catch up on! We missed out on nine months of pregnancy updates, cravings, baby shower gifts, and baby bump pictures. Fortunately, Kylie is making our job easy. She made a YouTube video about her pregnancy so we could catch up on what we missed. Now that Kylie and Travis Scott’s little bundle of joy is here, she seems ready to share more about her journey to motherhood with us. And she’s getting right to it. On Tuesday, February 6th, Kylie shared the first photo of her baby on Instagram. Kylie also shared her baby’s name: Stormi. The picture’s original caption simply read “stormi” with a smiling baby emoji. But she later updated it to include Stormi’s last name: “stormi webster.”

You might be wondering, Whose last name is Webster? And the answer is Travis Scott’s. Yep, Travis Scott’s real name is Jacques Webster. Many wondered if Stormi would take Kylie’s last name and go by Stormi Jenner. As far as we know, Kylie and Travis have no plans to get married at the moment. But Stormi’s last name is Webster, just like her father’s.

Introducing: Stormi Webster!

We’re pretty sure that she’s going to go by “Stormi Webster” and not “stormi webster.” But hey, you never know. The Kardashian/Jenner fam is famous for their naming conventions. Maybe giving kids all-lowercase names is the trend of the next generation of Jenners.

The name Stormi Scott would be pretty cute. But Stormi Webster has a beautiful ring to it too.

Welcome to the world, Stormi Webster! Now, how long until there’s a Kylie Cosmetics “Stormi” shade? Fingers crossed she’ll bless us with an entire “Stormi” collection!

It’s Time for the WWE to Close Its Gender Pay Gap

CHRISTOF STACHE/Getty

World Wrestling Entertainment’s thirty-first annual Royal Rumble takes place tonight live on the company’s streaming service, the WWE Network, and on pay-per-view. The event culminates in a 30-wrestler over-the-top-rope battle royale in which the last person remaining in the ring wins a championship match at WrestleMania, the wrestling world’s equivalent of the Super Bowl. What’s notable about this year’s show is that it’s the first time a 30-woman Royal Rumble match will also take place.

The likes of the late Joanie “Chyna” Laurer and Beth Phoenix have participated in the men’s match on occasion but, three years after the fan-led #GiveDivasAChance movement for WWE to utilize their women wrestlers—then regressively called “Divas”—for more than just few-minute matches, a women’s Rumble is well overdue.

Since then WWE has appropriated #GiveDivasAChance, turning it into their own marketing venture. The “Women’s Evolution” as it is known involved rebranding their Divas division into simply women’s wrestling, booking them in marquee matches, and recognizing that their growing female audience will fork out good money for products that represent them, as with last year’s line of Barbies.

It’s Official: America Suddenly Isn’t Comfortable With LGBT People

The theory that LGBT acceptance in America will only ever increase over time is a reassuring one. The only problem is that it may not be true.

A new survey commissioned by the LGBT media advocacy group GLAAD and conducted by The Harris Poll found that fewer non-LGBT adults reported being comfortable with their LGBT peers than in previous years.

This marks the first time in the four-year history of the Accelerating Acceptance report that GLAAD has witnessed a decline in LGBT acceptance.

Why It’s a Big Deal That USA Gymnastics Is Cutting Ties With the Karolyi Ranch

In a statement Thursday, USA Gymnastics president and CEO Kerry Perry said the organization will no longer use the Karolyi Ranch as the national team training center.

USA Gymnastics has terminated its agreement with the Karolyi Ranch in Huntsville, Texas. It will no longer serve as the USA Gymnastics National Team Training Center.

It has been my intent to terminate this agreement since I began as president and CEO in December. Our most important priority is our athletes, and their training environment must reflect this. We are committed to a culture that empowers and supports our athletes.

Since the 2000s, the ranch has hosted monthly training camps for elite level gymnasts — and in 2011, the ranch was named the official national training center for USA Gymnastics. The world and Olympic women’s teams trained there before competitions and for aspiring gymnasts, an invitation to the camp was the first step toward becoming a champion.

USA Gymnastics, the sport’s governing body, is facing extreme criticism for its handling of more than 100 complaints of sexual abuse by the national team doctor, Larry Nassar, who allegedly abused gymnasts while they attended the training camps in Houston. The athletes say USA Gymnastics did not protect them from Nassar and delayed taking action and reporting him to law enforcement even as the number of complaints against the Michigan osteopathic doctor mounted.

Simone Biles, the reigning Olympic all-around champion, revealed in a tweet earlier this week that she too suffered sexual abuse by Nassar, at the ranch, and pled in her post that “It breaks my heart even more to think that as I work towards my dream of competing in Tokyo 2020, I will have to continually return to the same training facility where I was abused.”

Nassar is currently being sentenced on first degree criminal sexual assault charges in a Michigan court. Dozens of victims are providing powerful victim impact statements detailing the sexual abuse he inflicted on them, often at the Karolyi Ranch, and asking for the judge to consider a life sentence.

USA Gymnastics’ decision to terminate its arrangement with the Karolyi Ranch is only the latest fraying in a relationship that began when then USA Gymnastics president Bob Colarossi invited Bela Karolyi to help revitalize the national women’s gymnastics program after poor finishes at world championships in the 1980s. Bela, the famed Romanian coach of Olympic champions Nadia Comeneci and Mary Lou Retton, along with his wife Martha, devised a decentralized training system in which gymnasts would train with their individual coaches but come together for a week, once a month, to train as a team under the Karolyis’ guidance. The system was a hybrid of the siloed U.S. coaching structure and the centralized eastern European strategy that seemed to produce consistent results.

It’s still not clear how aware the Karolyis were of Nassar’s sexual abuse of the gymnasts. Martha retired as the national team coordinator after the 2016 Olympic Games, and was replaced by Valeri Liukin, father of 2008 Olympic all around champion Nastia Liukin. The ranch is located in the isolated Sam Houston National Forest, where cell service is spotty and parents are not allowed. Some gymnasts have reported that Nassar was allowed into their dorm rooms at the ranch alone, at night without any supervision, and that was where much of the abuse occurred. Nassar was responsible for giving the gymnasts recovery treatments as well as helping them with injuries, and disguised his abuse as medical therapy. The Karolyis have not commented publicly on the allegations against Nassar.

But Maggie Nichols, an Olympic hopeful for the 2016 Rio team, was overheard at the ranch talking to her teammates about Nassar’s odd behavior by her coach, and that coach reported the conversation to Nichols’ parents and to USA Gymnastics. It wasn’t until weeks later that the organization reported the complaints to law enforcement, according to Nichols’ mother, who has since filed a lawsuit against Nassar and USA Gymnastics.

Then, in May 2017, a year after USA Gymnastics announced it was going to buy the ranch from the Karolyis, the organization backed out of the sale. The organization was facing heavy criticism about the way the training camps at the ranch were conducted — parents are not allowed while the athletes, often under-age minors, lived and trained for a week with little outside supervision.

With dozens of Nassar’s victims now revealing the extent to which he abused their trust and innocence, the training camp has become, as Biles noted, a constant reminder and symbol of betrayal and pain. Biles’ teammates from the 2016, Aly Raisman and Gabby Douglas, and 2012 Olympian McKayla Maroney, have all said they were abused by Nassar, sometimes at the ranch. Maroney also signed a non-disclosure agreement and confidential settlement with USA Gymnastics to not discuss her abuse claims publicly.

It’s not clear where the national women’s teams will train in the future; next month’s session has been cancelled.

‘It’s Your Turn to Listen to Me.’ Read Aly Raisman’s Testimony at Larry Nassar’s Sentencing

Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman confronted Larry Nassar, the disgraced former USA Gymnastics doctor who she says sexually abused her for years, with a blistering statement in court on Friday.

The six-time Olympic medalist came face-to-face with Nassar — one of several women who made victim impact statements at his multi-day sentencing hearing. Nassar has pleaded guilty to seven counts of criminal sexual contact with underage girls.

Raisman revealed in November that Nassar had abused her through so-called therapeutic treatments that turned out to be inappropriate touching. Looking directly at Nassar at times during her testimony, the gynmast recounted the abuse and the lasting effects it has had on her and other women who have accused him. Raisman also sharply criticized USA Gymnastics and the United States Olympic Committee for failing to protect young, vulnerable gymnasts from abuse.

“Larry, you do realize now that we, this group of women you so heartlessly abused over such a long period of time, are now a force and you are nothing. The tables have turned, Larry,” Raisman said in her 13-minute statement. “We have our voices, and we are not going anywhere.”

Read Raisman’s statement in full below.

I didn’t think I would be here today. I was scared and nervous. It wasn’t until I started watching the impact statements from the other brave survivors that I realized I, too, needed to be here.

Larry, you do realize now that we, this group of women you so heartlessly abused over such a long period of time, are now a force and you are nothing. The tables have turned, Larry. We are here. We have our voices, and we are not going anywhere. And now, Larry, it’s your turn to listen to me.

There is no map that shows you the pathway to healing. Realizing that you are a survivor of sexual abuse is really hard to put into words. I cannot adequately capture the level of disgust I feel when I think about how this happened. Larry, you abused the power and trust I and so many others placed in you, and I am not sure I will ever come to terms with how horribly you manipulated and violated me. You were the USA Gymnastics national team doctor, the Michigan State’s Olympic team doctor. You were trusted by so many and took advantage of countless athletes and their families.

The effects of you actions are far reaching. Abuse goes way beyond the moment, often haunting survivors for the rest of their lives, making it difficult to trust and impacting their relationships. It is all the more devastating when such abuse comes at the hand of such a highly regarded doctor, since it leaves survivors questioning the organizations and even the medical profession itself upon which so many rely.

I am here to face you, Larry, so you can see I’ve regained my strength, that I am no longer a victim, I am a survivor. I am no longer that little girl you met in Australia where you first began grooming and manipulating.

As for your letter yesterday: You are pathetic to think that anyone would have any sympathy for you. You think this is hard for you? Imagine how all of us feel. Imagine how it feels to be an innocent teenager in a foreign country hearing a knock on the door and it’s you. I don’t want you to be there, but I don’t have a choice. Treatments with you were mandatory. You took advantage of that. You even told on us if we didn’t want to be treated by you, knowing full well the troubles that would cause for us.

Lying on my stomach with you on my bed insisting that your inappropriate touch would help to heal my pain. The reality is, you caused me a great deal of physical, mental and emotional pain. You never healed me. You took advantage of our passions and our dreams. You made me uncomfortable and I thought you were weird. But I felt guilty because you were a doctor so I assumed I was the problem for thinking badly of you. I wouldn’t allow myself to believe that the problem was you. From the time we were little, we are taught to trust doctors.

You are so sick I can’t even comprehend how angry I feel when I think of you. You lied to me and manipulated me to think that when you treated me, you were closing your eyes because you had been working hard when you were really touching me, an innocent child, to pleasure yourself.

Imagine feeling like you have no power and no voice. Well you know what, Larry? I have both power and voice and I am only beginning to just use them.

All these brave women have power and we will use our voices to make sure you get what you deserve — a life of suffering spent replaying the words delivered by this powerful army of survivors.

I am also here to tell you to your face, Larry, that you have not taken gymnastics away from me. I love this sport and that love is stronger than the evil that resides in you, and those who enabled you to hurt many people. You already know you’re going away to a place where you won’t be able to hurt anybody ever again. But I am here to tell you that I will not rest until every last trace of your influence on this sport has been destroyed like the cancer it is.

Your abuse started 30 years ago. But that’s just the first reported incident we know of. If over these many years, just one adult listened, and had the courage and character to act, this tragedy could have been avoided. I and so many others would have never, ever met you. Larry, you should have been locked up a long, long time ago. Fact is, we have no idea how many people you victimized or what was done or not done that allowed you to keep doing it and to get away with it for so long. Over those 30 years when survivors came forward, adult after adult, many impositions of authority protected you, telling each survivor it was OK, that you weren’t abusing them. In fact, many adults had you convince the survivors that they were being dramatic or had been mistaken. This is like being violated all over again.

How do you sleep at night? You were decorated by USA Gymnastics and the United States Olympic Committee, both of which put you on advisory boards and committees to come up with policies that would protect athletes from this kind of abuse. You are the person they had “take the lead of athlete care.” You are the person they say “provided the foundation for our medical system.” I cringe to think that your influence remains in the policies that are supposed to keep athletes safe, that these organizations have for years claimed “state of the art.”

To believe in the future of gymnastics is to believe in change. But how are we to believe in change when these organizations aren’t even willing to acknowledge the problem? It’s easy to put out statements talking about how athlete care is the highest priority. But they’ve been saying that for years, and all the while, this nightmare was happening. False assurances from organizations are dangerous, especially when people want so badly to believe them. They make it easier to move away from the problem and enable bad things to continue to happen. And even now after all that has happened, USA Gymnastics has the nerve to say the very same things it has said all along. Can’t you see how disrespectful that is? Can’t you see how much that hurts?

A few days ago, USA Gymnastics put out a statement attributed to its president and CEO Kerry Perry, saying she came to listen to the courageous women and said, “Their powerful voices leave an indelible imprint on me and will impact my decisions as president and CEO every day.” This sounds great, Ms. Perry, but at this point, talk is cheap. You left midway through the day, and no one has heard from you or the board.

Kerry, I’ve never met you, and I know you weren’t around for most of this. But you accepted the position of president and CEO of USA Gymnastics, and I assume by now you are very well aware of the weighty responsibility you’ve taken on. Unfortunately, you’ve taken on an organization that I feel is rotting from the inside. And while this may not be what you thought you were getting into, you will be judged by how you deal with it. A word of advice: Continuing to issue statements of empty promises thinking that will pacify us will no longer work. Yesterday, USA Gymnastics announced that it was terminating its lease at the Ranch, where so many of us were abused. I am glad that it is no longer a national team training site, but USA Gymnastics neglected to mention that they had athletes training there the day they released the statement. USA Gymnastics, where is the honesty? Where is the transparency? Why must the manipulation continue?

Neither USA Gymnastics nor the USOC have reached out to express sympathy or even offer support. Not even to ask, how did this happen? What do you think we can do to help? Why have I and others here probably not heard anything from the leadership from the USOC? Why has the United States Olympic Committee been silent? Why isn’t the USOC here right now?

Larry was the Olympic doctor and he molested me at 2012 London Olympic games. They say now they applaud those have spoken out, but it’s easier to say that now. When the brave women who started speaking out back then, more than a year after the USOC says they knew about Nassar, they were dismissed. At the 2016 Olympic games, the president of the USOC said that the USOC would not conduct an investigation and even defended USA Gymnastics as one of the leaders in developing policies to protect athletes. That’s the response a courageous woman gets when she speaks out? And when others joined those athletes and began speaking out with more stories of abuse, were they acknowledged? No. It is like being abused all over again.

I have represented the United States of America in two Olympics and have done so successfully, and both USA Gymnastics and the United States Olympic Committee have been very quick to capitalize and celebrate my success. But did they reach out when I came forward? No. So, at this point, talk is worthless to me. We’re dealing with real lives in the future of our sport. We need to believe this won’t happen again.

For this sport to go on, we need to demand real change, and we need to be willing to fight for it. It’s clear now that if we leave it up to these organizations, history is likely to repeat itself. To know what changes are needed requires us to understand what exactly happened and why this happened. This is a painful process but it’s the only way to identify all the factors that contributed to this problem, and how they can be avoided in the future. This is the only way to learn from these mistakes and make gymnastics a safer sport. If ever there was a need to fully understand a problem, it is this one right now. To accept that problem is limited to just what we know now is irresponsible, delusional even. Each new day seems to bring a new survivor. We have no idea just how much damaged you caused, Larry, and we have no idea how deep these problems go.

Now is the time to acknowledge that the very person who sits before us now — who perpetrated the worst epidemic of sexual abuse in the history of sports, who is going to be locked up for a long, long time — this monster was also the architect of policies and procedures that are supposed to protect athletes from sexual abuse for both USA Gymnastics and the USOC.

If we are to believe in change, we must first understand the problem and everything that contributed to it. Now is not the time for false reassurances. We need an independent investigation of exactly what happened, what went wrong and how it can be avoided for the future. Only then can we know what changes are needed. Only then can we believe such changes are real.

Your Honor, I ask you to give Larry the strongest possible sentence, which his actions deserve. For by doing so, you will send a message to him and to other abusers that they cannot get away with their horrible crimes. They will be exposed for the evil they are and they will be punished to the maximum extent of the law. Let this sentence strike fear in anyone who thinks it is OK to hurt another person. Abusers, your time is up. The survivors are here, standing tall, and we are not going anywhere.

And please, your Honor, stress the need to investigate how this happened, so that we can hold accountable those who empowered and enabled Larry Nassar, so that we can repair and once again believe in this wonderful sport. My dream is that one day, everyone will know what the words “me too” signify but they will be educated and able to protect themselves from predators like Larry, so that they will never, ever, ever have to say the words, “me too.” Thank you.

Black Panther and Storm — A History of Their Marriage & Why It’s Important

Black Panther is arriving in theaters next month and there is a lot to learn from T’Challa’s comic book roots. For instance, did you know that at one point he was married to Storm? While their marriage didn’t last long, their union was powerful, for both Wakanda and the alliance it forged between the X-Men and the Avengers.

Let’s take a look at how T’Challa and Ororo first met, how they fell in love, and how T’Challa finally bent the knee to propose. We’ll also look at how this comic book storyline could play into the MCU, if the X-Men and Avengers do finally merge into one cinematic timeline (as a result of Disney buying FOX).

Young Friends



T’Challa and Ororo first met when they were both children. After Ororo’s parents were killed in Cairo, she was left alone to wander the desert. She spent some time as a pickpocket, forced to steal by Achmed El Gibár. Then she left Cairo in search of her mother’s homeland in Kenya. While on her travels, she came across T’Challa –heir to the throne of Wakanda — who was being kidnapped. Using her newly developed weather controlling powers, she rescued him. The pair had an instant chemistry and became friends. Part of this story was featured in a 1980s issue of Marvel Team-up, although it was retconned later in a Storm mini-series.

The Proposal



T’Challa and Storm went their separate ways and both joined The Avengers and the X-Men, respectively. Their busy schedules kept them apart most of the time, until T’Challa decided it was time to get married. In 2006, in Black Panther Volume 4: #14 and #15, T’Challa took a knee and proposed to Storm. Storm lamented her heartbreak of being separated from him as child and then said yes to his proposal.

The Wedding



The wedding of Black Panther and Storm can be read in Black Panther Volume 4: #18. Their wedding took place during the “Civil War Cease Fire Event.” Most of the Avengers and the X-Men showed up at the wedding, even though they were at odds over the Superhuman Registration Act. The Watcher even showed up to witness this historic event. Calling a ceasefire to witness the union of Storm, a powerful mutant, and T’Challa, a powerful Avenger and king, was a profound message of unity during a time of unrest.

The Divorce



Unfortunately, their union was not meant to least. Six years later, in 2012, T’Challa and Storm ended up on opposing sides of the Avengers vs. X-Men event. When the Pheonix Force returned to Earth, it possessed multiple people, including Namor. Namor led his Atlantian people into battle against Wakanda. The fallout from this comic book event series was brutal. Millions of people around the world began exhibiting mutant powers, Cyclops was imprisoned and The Avengers were left scattered, with Captain America left to create a new team. The damage to Wakanda was severe and T’Challa blamed Storm for siding with the X-Men. It was this event that caused him to annul their marriage.

The Future



In the comics, T’Challa and Storm are still divorced. Currently, there are no plans to bring them back together — which is sad — because they were one of Marvel’s strongest couples. However, they could come together in the film universe. Now that Disney owns both and Marvel and FOX, the crossover potentials are endless. While it’s too early to know if the current slate of Avengers will crossover with any of FOX’s current X-Men, it’s possible Black Panther and Storm could have a future. For instance, if the MCU does introduce the X-Men, they could do so via time travel or an alternate timeline, a la J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek films.

Would you like to see Storm and T’Challa together in the MCU? Would you keep X-Men: Apocalypse actress Alexandra Shipp in the role or recast?

Black Panther hits screens in the U.K. on February 12 and the U.S. on February 16.

It’s Your Choice: 4 Ways to Save Money by Buying Services a la Carte

A la carte: A menu or list that prices items separately. — Webster’s Dictionary

They say you can have it all.

But what if we don’t want it all?

What if we just want a few awesome things we like, and don’t want to pay for all the other stuff we don’t need?

Why should we pay for hundreds of TV channels we’re not watching, reams of cell phone data we’re not using or car insurance for long-distance road trips we’re not taking?

More and more, savvy consumers are finding ways to buy individual items a la carte instead of paying a lump sum for some kind of big, all-in-one package that doesn’t fit their needs.

In that spirit, here’s the latest information on a la carte services for TV, wireless providers, airline tickets and even auto insurance.

1. Cut the Cord on Your Cable

More and more people are bidding farewell to cable because it’s so expensive. In a recent TiVo survey, nearly half of cable or satellite users were actively planning to get rid of the service in the near future or were at least open to considering it.

About 80% of those who have cut the cord did it because of the price. American households that still have a pay-TV service are paying an average of $ 103 a month for it.

Most viewers in the U.S. and Canada now want a la carte TV service, only paying for the channels they actually watch, the TiVo survey found. (The top five requested channels: ABC, CBS, NBC, Discovery Channel and History.)

TiVo found that 60% of people surveyed didn’t need cable because they were using online streaming services. Over 54% of those had Netflix, 27% used Amazon Prime, and 12% used Hulu.

Each streaming service has its own pros and cons, and if you’re wondering which would be best for you, we’ve got you covered here. You can compare costs, the type of content, the number of available titles and more.

2. Pay By the Mile for Car Insurance

Susan Gibbons doesn’t drive much. She works from home. Sometimes she’ll swing by the supermarket or the doctor’s office, but that’s about it.

And she only pays $ 35 a month for car insurance.

“All my driving is around my neighborhood,” says Gibbons, 55, of Philadelphia. “A few miles here, a few miles there.”

Being such an infrequent driver, she got tired of spending so much on auto insurance. It made no sense for someone like her, who easily drives less than five miles a day, to pay the same rate as someone who drives 50 miles a day.

So she found Metromile, a startup trying to revolutionize the auto insurance industry. It offers low-mileage drivers a unique new option: pay-as-you-go insurance coverage.

She’s the kind of customer Metromile is built for — low-mileage drivers like urban dwellers, retirees and those who work from home. Founded in 2011, the insurer is also betting millennials will be tempted by cheaper, customized car insurance.

Metromile is currently available in California, Illinois, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington. Next, the company plans to expand into Florida, New York and Texas.

Customers typically pay a flat fee of $ 35 per month, plus 5 cents per mile. Metromile tracks your mileage through a device plugged into your car’s diagnostic port.

Before she switched insurers, Gibbons had been a State Farm customer for 30 years. She figures her car insurance bill has plummeted by $ 720 a year.

3. Strip-Down Your Cell Phone Service

With a wife and two kids to support, Zak Wilson has to stick to a budget. But when it came to cell phones, he could never find the sweet spot — reliable service he could afford.

Wilson was with Verizon Wireless for years, but was frustrated because it cost so much. He was paying around $ 180 a month for cell service for himself and his wife.

“With the data plans, it’s expensive,” says Wilson, a 43-year-old salesman who lives near Portland, Oregon. “I felt like I was paying for double internet — home internet and phone internet.”

That’s when he tried Twigby. It’s a discount wireless carrier making a splash in the competitive world of low-cost, no-contract cell phone service.

It’s an MVNO, a Mobile Virtual Network Operator. It buys connection wholesale from the big wireless carriers like Sprint and Verizon, and resells it to customers.

“The cost savings is extreme,” Wilson says. “Now, for both phones, we’re paying maybe 60 bucks.”

4. Believe in the Virtue of Unbundled Airfare

If you buy what’s called a basic economy ticket on American or United Airlines, you’re not allowed to stuff your carry-on into the overhead bins. Those precious bins are off limits!

These days, airlines are increasingly dividing their cabins and charging separately for things that used to be covered by the overall fare, like overhead bin space and Wi-Fi. Some flyers feel like they’re being nickel-and-dimed by this trend. But that’s not how we see it.

We see it as a way to get cheaper plane tickets.

The basic economy fare works much like the fares for low-cost carriers like Allegiant or Spirit. You get a seat, and that’s about it. If you want to bring a carry-on or choose your seat, you’ll pay extra for it.

The benefit? You get to fly in a United or American Airlines cabin instead of in a cramped low-cost carrier’s seat. And you have the option to purchase in-flight food and entertainment that low-cost carriers don’t even offer.

That’s life a la carte, people.

It’s One of the Easiest Ways to Save Money

As consumers, we’re increasingly offered new choices and options when it comes to TV, car insurance, cell phone service or airfare.

When you grab lunch at Chipotle, do you want to pay a dollar extra to add guacamole to your burrito? Or will you skip the guac and save a buck?

It’s up to you, the customer.

It’s the dawn of a new age.

It’s Important to Diversify Your Portfolio With Human Capital, Too

With any investment portfolio, diversification is critical to maximizing return. Diversification can merely be defined as “not putting all your eggs in one basket.” Here’s an example of why not diversifying is bad: when too-big-to-fail energy company Enron collapsed, so did its employees’ retirement plans. Why? According to The New York Times, Enron’s 401(k)’s asset value was approximately $ 2.1 billion before the collapse, with more than half of its assets invested in the company’s stock. Although employees had the option to choose other financial assets, satisfied with Enron’s financial performance, many invested heavily in the company’s stock. Therefore, when the company’s stock plummeted, employees’ retirement accounts were wiped out in little to no time.

A well-diversified investment portfolio should not only include financial assets but human capital as well. What exactly is human capital? Human capital is the present value of all potential earnings during an individual’s lifetime. So for instance, the compensation you expect to receive during your lifetime is considered your specific human capital.

More importantly, your human capital is, in fact, a traditional asset and should be taken into consideration when diversifying. Like other assets, human capital can be considered either safe or unsafe. A tenured professor at a university may be deemed to be “safe” human capital because he has a steady stream of income. Therefore, it may be more appropriate for that professor to invest in riskier assets, such as stocks. In contrast, a person whose salary fluctuates, such as a retail sales associate, may be considered to have “unsafe” human capital. It may be more appropriate for that individual to invest in less risky assets, such as bonds.

Also, if a person is working for a company and is investing heavily in the company’s stock, that person’s investment portfolio is poorly diversified. If the company has a bad financial year, that employee may be overly exposed to the company’s risks and may experience an economic mishap similar to those experienced by Enron’s employees.

Managing the Risks

Just as there are risks associated with stocks, bonds, and other investments, there are also risks related to your human capital. Human capital is exposed to both earnings and mortality risks. Some things an individual can do to reduce his earnings risk is to establish an emergency fund or create a credit line to withstand periods when there is a disruption of income.

Human capital is also exposed to mortality risk. Mortality risk is the chance an individual may die prematurely at a time when their dependents need their financial contributions the most. Maintaining life insurance is one way to address this concern as it helps protect against the risk of depleting human capital at the time of death.

So, before developing your investment portfolio, take time to understand your specific human capital. Understanding your particular human capital may allow you to build financial freedom for yourself and generations to come.

FX has dropped the trailer for the second season, aptly titled “Robbin Season” of Donald Glover’s series ‘Atlanta’ ahead of its March premiere.

The eerie clip premiered at last night’s Golden Globes and is soundtracked by “Too Fast.” With haunting vocals accompanied by hand snaps, Brent Fiyaz sings: “Livin’ at the speed of light, like a bullet. I could be dead by the morning, I can’t call it.”  Flashes of lights bring forth short vignette to appear through out the ominious clip. Before strutting down a sidewalk, Earn (Glover), Paper Boi (Brian Tyree Henry), and others  are shown at dinner before hitting a strip clun and hanging out with a gator.

“We didn’t really look back at Season 1 for inspiration much,” said Glover. “We always kept trying to do something different for the new season.”

Pink cries with fellow mom in grocery store: “It’s so hard. Y’all.”

Sara McGinnis

posted in Parenting

Do you know why it is so many moms are endeared to certain famous counterparts, such as Chrissy Teigen and Pink?

I’ve long believed it to be because of their ability to be open and share their lives despite inevitable criticism, but I’m realizing it’s even more specific than that. Plenty share highlights, but we have a special love for the few that can share their fails.

Pink, who shares 6-year-old daughter Willow and 1-year-old son Jameson with husband Carey Hart, recently had it bluntly pointed out to her by a fellow mom at the grocery store. The singer’s tweet detailing the encounter:

Group hug, all. (Said in the sincerest of ways. Parenting really is a long, wild ride.)

Pink with son and daughter

Pink’s tweet has inspired others to share their stories of random kindness encounters. Here’s a sweet one from a woman named Betty:

I’m a little too shy to go up to a stranger and share a few words, but I do often try and throw a commiserating, supportive smile to moms who are elbow-deep in a tantrum. I hope that as others are muttering the kid needs a good spanking (yes, I’ve really overheard that) my happy face says to the mom, “You’re doing just fine.”

It’s not all mommy wars out there. What random acts of kindness or compassion have you been a part of?

TRAVEL DEAL UPDATE:

The Sharks Are Beginning to Circle Bitcoin and It’s Down 30%

Bitcoin faced one of its biggest tests this week, losing almost a quarter of its value after the world’s largest cryptocurrency reached a record high Monday.

The digital currency plunged as much as 30 percent on Friday, before paring losses, as this week’s selloff entered a fourth day with increasing momentum. Other cryptocurrencies also tumbled: ethereum dropped as much as 36 percent and litecoin slumped as much as 43 percent, according to composite prices on Bloomberg.

Michael Novogratz, the former Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Fortress Investment Group LLC macro trader, said he’s shelving plans to start a cryptocurrency hedge fund and predicted that bitcoin may extend its plunge to $ 8,000.

“We didn’t like market conditions and we wanted to re-evaluate what we’re doing,” Novogratz said in a phone interview. He predicted last week that bitcoin could reach $ 40,000 within a few months.

Bitcoin dropped to as low as $ 10,776, before recovering to $ 13,48 at 2:01 p.m. in New York. It last traded below $ 10,000 on Dec. 1, when the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission agreed to allow trading in bitcoin futures. For the week, the decline is 24 percent. The price of the digital coin had more than doubled in the prior three weeks.

This week’s losses represent a major test for the cryptocurrency industry and the blockchain technology that underpins it, which have rapidly entered the mainstream in recent weeks. Bears cast doubt on the value of the virtual assets, with UBS Group AG this week calling bitcoin the “biggest speculative bubble in history.” Bulls argue the technology is a game changer for the world of investment and finance. Both will be closely watching the outcome of the current selloff.

“The sharks are beginning to circle here, and the futures markets may give them a venue to strike,” said Ross Norman, chief executive officer of London-based bullion dealer Sharps Pixley Ltd., which offers gold in exchange for bitcoin. “Bitcoin’s been heavily driven by retail investors, but there’ll be some aggressive funds looking for the right opportunity to hammer this thing lower.”

Traders who bought the currency on futures exchanges using collateral may start facing margin calls following the price decline. Two venues launched products in recent weeks that required hefty security, with Cboe needing 44 percent to clear contracts, and the CME 47 percent. Brokers set safety nets even higher.

Coinbase, one of the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchanges, said all buying and selling was temporarily disabled during today’s rout, after having delays in processing wire transfers and verifying new customers for the past week due to higher traffic. Bitcoin transaction volume jumped more than 30 percent on Coinbase’s GDAX exchange, while fees to approve and record the transactions on the blockchain surged to a record $ 55, according to Bit Info Charts.

Many of the recent news stories and market moves connected to cryptocurrencies appear to carry hallmarks of the mania phase of a bubble. Long Island Iced Tea Corp. shares rose as much as 289 percent after the unprofitable Hicksville, New York-based company rebranded itself Long Blockchain Corp. Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Thursday bitcoin isn’t functioning like a normal means of payment and is being used for speculation.

Still, cryptocurrencies are attracting established players. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. is setting up a trading desk to make markets in digital currencies such as bitcoin, according to people with knowledge of the strategy. The bank aims to get the business running by the end of June, if not earlier, two of the people said.

It’s here: The cutest holiday photo you can possibly take

posted in Life

Are you ready to take the cutest photo in the history of photos? (Excluding this photo, of course, because there’s no topping that. Look at that little floof! You have cat to be kitten me with that cuteness.)

A tiny gray kitten with feathery fuzzy fur

Here’s what you have to do: Gather up a child or children. Bonus points if they are yours. Bring along their preferred mode of transportation. Now strap some holiday to that mutha.

A toddler boy sits inside a Little Tikes car with an artificial tree attached to the top of the car. It looks like he's driving it home to have an adorable, albeit tiny, holiday celebration.

That’s it. Three easy steps to create your best Christmas card photo ever.

My version of this photo started off with a quick jaunt around the block, my son in his Little Tikes ride, and me on my feet, but only because I couldn’t fit in the car.

When we arrived back home, my husband was inside the garage, pulling down our boxes of holiday decor — including our artificial Christmas tree. Seeing the treetop and the toy car together reminded me of a photo I once saw somewhere (Who am I kidding? It was Pinterest. I saw it on Pinterest. It’s the only place I ever go anymore.)

I strapped the top of the tree to my son’s car and snapped a few pictures.

Our garage door is picturesque and all, but I do wish I had staged the photo in a more festive setting, though that probably would have destroyed the spontaneity of the moment. This was unplanned and fun, and it turned out hella cute.

Several BabyCenter readers chimed in with their own versions on our Facebook page. Look at all these adorable little ones:

Baby in a Batmobile with Christmas tree strapped to the top

Nita Orion proves that the happiest baby on the block is the one in a Batmobile, all decked out for Christmas!

A pouty child bundled up inside of a Little Tikes car

I can’t stop giggling about Lisa Marie’s oh-so-pouty, oh-so-cute boy. What an adorable bundle.

A very happy toddler boy inside a Little Tikes car

Just look at Ashleigh Elliott’s child, who rivals Santa in the jolly department.

Jennifer Pavenski created an entire scene for her sweet little men to go tree shopping.

I swear I can actually hear the squeal of delight from Sarah Peterson’s impossibly adorable merrymaker.

Two kids, a red wagon, and a Christmas tree
Finally Heather Lynn Trombly proves that any mode of transportation works for a festive photo. These children are so cute with this classic red wagon.

‘The Walking Dead’: A Rebellion Crumbles in ‘How It’s Gotta Be’

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from the Season 8, Episode 8 of The Walking Dead, entitled “How It’s Gotta Be.” Proceed with caution.

In last week’s episode of The Walking Dead, the show went deep (maybe a little too deep) into the mind of the show’s number one coward Eugene — which ended in him becoming a full Savior.

This week, Season 8 arrived at its mid-season finale with this latest episode entitled “How It’s Gotta Be.” This episode brought everything to a massive high as Daryl’s attack from last week put all the communities in grave danger, reversing all the progress Rick, Maggie, and Ezekiel made.

All the Colonies Are in Danger



Alexandria, Hilltop, and the Kingdom went under siege as Negan and his forces began to retaliate after the attack on Sanctuary. Thanks to Eugene, the Saviors escaped the walker hordes and each of Negan’s lieutenants decided to pay their colonies a friendly visit.

Maggie and her people were put under pressure by Simon while they were on the road. Simon and his men had Jerry hostage, demanding for Maggie’s cooperation. At the Kingdom, Ezekiel tried to hide from Gavin, who is searching thoroughly for him. Gavin eventually caught up to Ezekiel leaving the once king’s fate unknown. Later, Rick arrives back to Alexandria and finally came toe-to-toe with Negan in his own home. After a brutal brawl, Rick escaped the skirmish leaving Negan alone for the time being.

The damage has been done heavily to each of the colonies, so the question is: will the resistance be able to bounce back from this? Just how will Rick and his forces continue the fight? As of now, things don’t look so good and who knows if they’ll be able to recover.

Enid & Aaron Try to Reach out to Oceanside



After leaving the Hilltop, Aaron and Enid set out to Oceanside to try to convince them to join the fight. Instead of things going smoothly, it lead to Enid shooting Natania on accident because she thought a Savior got the jump on Aaron. This turn of events may have soured things a bit for the negotiations.

Oceanside could have proved to be the resistances trump card when things went wrong (which they already have). However, because of Enid’s rash actions, what could happen to both Aaron and herself? Could they still salvage a possible partnership even after what just happened?

Eugene Shows Remorse



After Eugene’s firm decision that he made to Father Gabriel — telling him he would never go along with rescuing Doctor Carson — he then decides to go back on his word. Eugene offered Gabriel and Carson a way out, which Gabriel thanked Eugene for doing the right thing. However, Eugene didn’t seem fully convinced about whether or not his actions could be considered “right.”

This seemed to come out of nowhere as it’s hard to figure out where Eugene truly stands. Has he truly become a Savior or was it too quick to judge him in the last episode? He did play a role in letting the Saviors escape, so that’s also something to take into account. Eugene still proves to be an enigma and it’ll be interesting to see what fate has in store for him.

Carl Is Bitten



Throughout this whole episode, Carl really pulled through by demonstrating heroic features and leadership abilities. As Negan came right up to Alexandria’s doorstep, Carl decided to take charge, using himself as a decoy as Daryl and the others escaped.

He and Negan then had a showdown where he told the Savior leader that he would offer himself as a sacrifice to stop the bloodshed from continuing. After the others break through Alexandria’s walls, Carl hides away which angered Negen, causing him to rain hellfire onto the town.

Unfortunately, Carl couldn’t escape unscathed as he revealed to his father and Michonne underneath the towns sewage system that he’s been bitten off-screen by a walker. This is a sad reveal as viewers were beginning to see the potential that Carl could have as a leader which could make him a more central character in the series if Rick were to pass on.

Though it may have ended with him in a bad state, it’s still an unknown if this bite will mark the end of the young hero. It’s possible that some other force could cause him to lose his life, perhaps even by Negan’s own hands.

Fans will just have to keep guessing as what will happen next, as The Walking Dead will be off for a while. After this mid-season finale, it’s safe to say that the series still hasn’t lost its touch by dropping a major shocker to keep viewers thoroughly engaged.

‘It’s the Power, Stupid.’ Sheryl Sandberg Says Today’s Sexual Harassment ‘Moment’ Is Not Enough

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg has some strong words about the pervasiveness of sexual harassment in the workplace.

In a Facebook post published Sunday, Sandberg suggested that power is the main culprit, claiming “It’s the power, stupid,” a riff on the popular phrase from the 1992 presidential race “It’s the economy, stupid.”

Read: What Makes a Great Workplace for Women? (Not What Most Companies Think)

Sandberg detailed some of her own experiences with unwanted sexual advances, noting that in each one the men had more power than she did. “That’s not a coincidence,” she continued. “It’s why they felt free to cross the line.”

Yet while Sandberg says that “almost every woman” and some men she knows have experienced sexual harassment, she feels that a critical moment is upon us. “For the first time in my professional life, it feels like people are finally prepared to hold perpetrators responsible,” Sandberg wrote.

Read: Facebook Is Going on a Hiring Spree to Fill Its New London Headquarters

However, Sandberg argues that speaking up, sharing stories, and cheering for those who do is not adequate to make real changes. She says, “We need systemic, lasting changes that deter bad behavior and protect everyone.” She suggests that workplaces must “start with clear principles” and then “institute policies to support them.”

Ultimately, however, Sandberg hopes that we can create “more equitable workplace culture that treats women with more respect and affords them more opportunities.” More women in power might not solve all the problems, but she believes “we could get quite a lot of good done.” And that, she notes, “would be a major step in the right direction.”

McConnell Walks Back Roy Moore Criticisms: It’s Up to Alabama to Decide

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Sunday appeared to walk back his criticisms of Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore. “I’m going to let the people of Alabama make the call,” he said on ABC’s This Week. But just a few weeks ago, after multiple women came forward accusing Moore of sexual misconduct, McConnell was advocating that Moore “step aside” from the race, adding he believes the women who have accused the former state Supreme Court justice. McConnell’s apparent reversal comes as President Donald Trump has adopted a strategy of backing Moore without saying his name, instead opting to bash the Democratic candidate, Doug Jones.

William Carlos Williams’ plums in the icebox poem somehow became a meme, and it’s getting out of control

William Carlos Williams’ plums in the icebox poem somehow became a meme, and it’s getting out of control


William Carlos Williams’ plums in the icebox poem somehow became a meme, and it’s getting out of control

It seems as if Twitter is an endless meme machine. Meaning to say that now Twitter’s made even a William Carlos Williams poem go viral. Do we know why his famous “This Is Just To Say” poem was the latest meme to take over the Internet? No. But the plums in the icebox are suddenly everywhere. And, honestly, we’re kind of loving all the crazy tweets inspired by them.

With this newest Twitter meme, the best part is how it makes very little sense at face value. And how it seemed to come completely out of nowhere. That’s probably why Twitter loved it, to be honest. Everyone had their takes and everyone wanted to make sure they were heard. Some of the best, though, came from those users who decided the poem needed the musical treatment. From song lyrics to just questioning the sanity of the work itself, everyone seemed to have quite the take on William Carlos Williams’ infamous plums in the icebox poem. The main question, though, is why were there plums in the icebox at all? And why did someone put them there to save for breakfast?

Either way, Twitter had fun and didn’t exactly lighten up very quickly. They loved this poem and all the jokes they could make.

Because William Carlos Williams’ plums were just so sweet, so cold.

First, this user just didn’t want Jolene to eat her plums. Steal her man, that’s fine. Just not the plums.

But then, of course, there’s the initial telling your friend that you did, in fact, eat the plums.

And finally, the dreams this user had about a man and woman eating the plums while he was sick to his stomach. You know, because he’s the Mr. Brightside of plum loving.

People had all kinds of takes.

And they just couldn’t stop.

Overall, the memes are just incredible and yes, it is strange that suddenly a William Carlos Williams poem is back in the forefront of our minds. But this is Twitter after all.

It’s cookie time! Try these EASY salted caramel bars

by

Lindsay Weiss

posted in Life

Yay, it’s DECEMBER! Which means it’s totally fine for me to start talking about my favorite subject…

COOKIES!

I wanted to give this recipe to you early, because it’s the one you may use the most during this busy, busy month. It’s a shortcut recipe — which means it takes a little help from the store — but it’s the one I keep turning to for last minute events or “Oops! I forgot” moments.

These are a tender sugar cookie bar, jazzed up with a filling of sea salt caramel chips and prepared caramel topping. They are sweet and salty, soft and crunchy — really just an explosion of flavors in a very small bite. I cut these small because they are rich and good. I used a packaged sugar cookie mix as the base for the bar and I don’t regret it one bit because it comes together in just a few minutes.

I found the Hershey’s Sea Salt Caramel Chips in my regular grocery store, and they’re really what started my wheels turning. (No, this is not a promo for them; I just bought them and really liked the flavor.) If you can’t find them in your regular store, you can get them on Amazon. They are pretty important to the recipe, so don’t skip ’em.

These come together incredibly quickly, but look bakery quality (and taste even better). They’re a must-have for this busy season, so pin ’em now and you’ll thank me later!

p.s. If you’re looking for 12 Days of Cookies, it will be over here on my blog, Sugar Mama, starting Friday, Dec. 1!

Easy Salted Caramel Cookie Bars

1 1/2 lbs. packaged sugar cookie mix, divided (typically 1 & 1/2 pouches of sugar cookie mix — don’t worry you’ll make these more than once and use up that extra 1/2!)
13 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened and divided
1 egg
10 oz. bag Hershey’s Sea Salt Caramel Chips
3/4 cup prepared caramel ice cream topping (the best quality you can find)
1 ½ tsp. Fleur de Sel (or coarse sea salt)

Using a 9X13 pan, line with aluminum foil. Spray with baking spray and set aside. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In a large bowl, combine one 1 lb. bag of sugar cookie mix, 8 tbsp. of butter and one egg. Use an electric mixer to combine until dough is formed. Press into the bottom of the 9×13 and bake for 10 minutes. Dough should be slightly golden. Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with sea salt caramel chips. Drizzle caramel topping on top. Let sit five minutes to “melt”. Use a spoon to spread evenly.

In a separate bowl, combine HALF of a 1 lb. bag of sugar cookie mix and 5 tbsp butter. Use a fork and blend together until coarse crumbs appear. Sprinkle on top of caramel topping and bake near the top of the oven for 12-15 minutes.

If you want top a little more golden, broil for 30 seconds watching very carefully. Allow to cool and cut into squares.

Makes 36 bars.

This is why it’s a big deal that Kate Middleton “recycled” her coat

This is why it’s a big deal that Kate Middleton “recycled” her coat


This is why it’s a big deal that Kate Middleton “recycled” her coat

Did you hear? Kate Middleton recently recycled a coat she wore a few years ago. While we thought it was great news that a royal re-wore a coat from her first pregnancy, some people weren’t so impressed.

There’s no denying there’s been a heavy focus on Kate’s fashion choices. We even love learning about the nail polish she’s allowed to wear, but many just weren’t having it. Maybe it was the choice of word, that she “recycled” a garment, or the focus on clocking how many times she wears something. Or, perhaps it was pointing out something everyone does — i.e. remixing their wardrobe. Most human beings in the world wear an item more than once. It’s simply called getting dressed, not recycling.

Also, how many times do we talk or write about Prince William’s wardrobe or the wardrobe of any male celeb? That convo is pretty nonexistent in the media. But every woman on the red carpet is often asked, “Who are you wearing?” before the interview can even begin.

Okay, we get it. We really do.

However, here’s why Kate re-wearing a piece is a topic of conversation.

Getty / Karwai Tang

Let’s be real, Kate isn’t just an everyday woman who can wear something and go unnoticed. She’s royalty. Entire sites are devoted to her style because women love her look. She’s following in the footsteps of her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, who also made waves for her sartorial choices.

Also, there are strict rules to being a royal. Literally, rules that include public displays of affection, wedding bouquets that must include myrtle, and not publicly speaking about politics. They’re not even allowed to eat shellfish!

But there are also specific fashion rules for royals that include wearing hats for formal events, tiaras being worn at a 45-degree angle, and there’s even a reason Prince George always wears shorts.

While Kate has reportedly spent more than $ 70,000 on her shopping budget this year, she has a strict rule of refusing to accept free clothes.

Getty / Paul Edwards

Though a $ 70k clothing budget is nothing to scoff at, when you factor in the amount of events she attends on a weekly basis? It’s pretty easy to see how that cost can add up.

So when we see Kate wearing an item again, whether it’s a coat or nude heels, we say kudos. If there’s anyone who can get away with (and possibly afford!) wearing a new outfit every single day, it would be her. But we see that she chooses not to do that! So yeah, it’s okay to have a positive conversation about a woman with means choosing to maximize her closet.

And kudos to any woman who knows what she loves, knows what looks great on her, and will wear it again and again until she gets tired of it.

CTE Was Confirmed in a Living Person for the First Time. And It’s a Veteran NFL Player

A former NFL player is reportedly the first living person ever accurately diagnosed with CTE, or chronic traumatic encephalopathy, the disease found in the brains of dozens of ex football players.

This breakthrough, which was made in 2012, but only published this week in the journal Neurosurgery, could help doctors identify and treat patients while they are still alive. CTE was previously only identifiable through a brain examination after death.

The subject of the diagnosis was not named in the study, but was reported by CNN to be Fred McNeill, who died in 2015 at age 63. McNeill played 12 seasons as a linebacker for the Minnesota Vikings before retiring in 1985.

The disease, which is linked to repetitive head injury, has symptoms including memory loss, anger and depression. Another study, published last year, found CTE in the brains of 110 out of 111 deceased NFL players examined. The NFL acknowledged the link between CTE and football for the first time in 2016.

The new breakthrough involves using an experimental brain scanning technique, where a radioactive ‘tracer’ that attaches itself to proteins associated with the disease can be picked up by a PET scan.

The report confirmed that a study of the patient’s brain after his death revealed the CTE diagnosis had been correct. The new scanning process has been used on at least a dozen other retired players, however McNeill’s case is the first to be confirmed via autopsy.

What it’s like to be pregnant without a mom

by

Maggie Downs

posted in Life

This is not a feel-good story about how I got pregnant and developed a deeper bond with my mother. It’s not about all the text messages we sent or how I called my mom at all hours to ask questions about pelvic pain and morning sickness.

I wish it were that story.

Unfortunately, my mom died in 2011, three years before my son was a reality.

There are a lot of things I wish, but probably the biggest one is that I could have experienced pregnancy with my mom by my side. And it was something I never thought about until the hole was already there.

Black and white photo of a woman in the 1970s with a tiny baby (adorable!) in a bonnet.

 

Suddenly the woman who brought me into the world and nurtured me into life – the woman who sweetened my oatmeal with mashed strawberries and rocked me to sleep in the ugliest, 1970s yellow rocking chair – was no longer with me.

 

A gorgeous little girl in pigtails sits behind a chocolate cake with a candle shaped like a 3. Next to her is her mother, an elegant woman dressed in gold.

 

When my mom died, essential things died with her. All the memories of my birth and early childhood, all her advice about pregnancy, any pearls of wisdom about motherhood – they disappeared the day she drew her last breath in hospice. She was gone before I ever thought to capture any of this information. (I don’t even know if I was born vaginally or via c-section.)

What this means is that pregnancy felt like a very solitary experience. I had my husband and friends, of course, but nobody else had a history of the body like my mom and me. I look into the mirror and I see her – I live with her stately nose and her pale complexion, even her stubbornly jiggly upper arms (curse you, mom!). It only stood to reason that she would understand my pregnancy in a way others couldn’t.

A pregnant woman wearing jeans and a striped tee-shirt holds a hawk on one gloved hand.

 

For that reason, my mom actually remained with me in a way I didn’t expect.

Every Braxton-Hicks contraction, every twinge of back pain, every time my arm weirdly went numb – every symptom led me down a path of thinking about her. I spent nights awake with searing heartburn and wondered if my mom experienced that too, and I dressed for the day daydreaming about what weird maternity clothes she might have worn. Finally, at the end of my pregnancy, when I was induced, I recalled my dad once said I needed a nudge to be born too.

I made it through the 9 months, because that was the only choice I had, and I did it with a shadow of my mom, as she was both present and gone. I guess this is what it means to love somebody and to be loved – my mom was by my side even in her absence.

And when I came home with my baby boy, the very first thing I did was to plop myself down in an ugly, yellow rocking chair, and rock my child to sleep.

Somehow I think she’s with my boy too.

What do you know, if anything,about your mother’s pregnancy with you?

Don’t worry, no one called the police. Rather, we are taking a moment to highlight an often neglected metal in the realm of menswear – copper. You can see it on a couple of cuffs from upscale workwear brands, but it serves more purposes than just complementing a rolled up chambray shirt. Its orange hue goes quite a bit more brown and darker than brass or gold, making it a unique addition to the right outfit. As orange is on the other side of the color wheel from blue, it can really stand out strong against an outfit heavy on navy.

What this means, in short, is that anyone interested in suing their bank is now less likely to do so—and less likely to win. Read more…

‘It’s Been a Rollercoaster.’ Shawn Johnson East Reveals Miscarriage in Emotional Video

Shawn Johnson East and her husband Andrew East announced in an emotional YouTube video posted on Saturday that Johnson East had a miscarriage just two days after the couple found out they were pregnant.

“Today’s video is a little bit sensitive,” Johnson East, 25, said at the beginning of the video. “It’s not the happiest video but we feel like a lot of people go through this so we wanted to share it.”

The video — titled “pregnancy + heartbreak” — documented the couple’s whirlwind 48-hours pregnancy experience: from the moment when Johnson East showed herself crying joyful tears after taking two pregnancy tests which came back positive, to the moment the couple learned they had a miscarriage.

“The past 48 hours have been some of the happiest, scariest, and saddest times of my life,” Johnson East captioned the video. “My husband Andrew and I found out that we were unexpectedly pregnant, only to find out hours later some tragic news. I have been crying more than I ever have, but am still optimistic for what is next.”

Shawn Johnson East

After experiencing some unexpected bleeding, the video showed the couple driving to the doctor’s office where it was confirmed that the 2008 Olympian was miscarrying.

“So, it’s been a roller coaster of a few days,” Johnson East told the camera after the couple returned home. “We just got back from the doctor and I’m no longer pregnant. Somehow, I lost the pregnancy already. It sucks. It’s definitely no fun, guys … and having a doctor confirm that we miscarried doesn’t feel good.”

While holding up the pair of baby Converse sneakers Johnson East had given her husband to tell him she was pregnant, she assured her viewers that “We’ll use them again, of course.”

“This is by far the hardest video we’ve ever posted but we felt as though it was a story that needed to be shared as so many struggle with the same thing,” Johnson East wrote on Instagram alongside a screenshot from the video. “@andrewdeast I love you more than anything in this world and I know you are going to make the greatest Daddy in the world someday. Thank you for being my rock through all of this.”

The couple tied the knot on a private farm in rural Tennessee in April 2016. Reflecting on their one-year anniversary, Johnson East told PEOPLE “It’s been the craziest year of our lives.”

“I love him more every single day,” she added. “The first year is the hardest and best year of your life!”

This comic strip nailed exactly what it’s like to be a freelance creative in just four panels

If you’ve ever dreamed of becoming a freelancer and working for yourself, one comic strip nailed exactly what it’s like to be a freelance creative. Long-story short? It’s not as easy as you may think. Being a freelancer requires serious self-discipline, self-motivation, and balancing several responsibilities at once — to name just a few requirements. And then it comes with plenty of awkward complications. Like figuring out how to file your taxes.

Plus, there’s the whole getting-paid-thing, which is a whole other issue — how much money to charge, how quickly your client(s) will pay you, etc. And, let’s say you’re a writer or artist — some places may want you to work for free. Yup, FREE. Think about other jobs, an architect for instance. Can you imagine a client asking them to work for free? Here, design this building for us, but we can’t pay you… Luckily, one comic artist knows our pain.

This comic strip nails those freelance creative annoyances on the head.

As funny as this comic is, anyone who’s an artist or writer can likely relate — and the fact that a newspaper had printed it is ironic since some print and online publications ~don’t~ pay and ~do~ believe exposure is payment enough.

Want to know more? The artist is Rick Detorie.

You can find his work online and on Amazon. We’re grateful that @XenoStateOfMind, the Twitter user who shared the strip, went out of their way to give the artist credit. They also explained why they shared it online — and it wasn’t for personal exposure.

Hear, hear! And the Twitterverse found it just as relatable.

It’s not easy to hack the freelance life. But seeing comics like this from other creatives who get it makes it a little bit easier. When you find an artist or writer you love, support their work. We know we’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for Rick Detorie in the future.

Here are some videos of the “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” cast recording “Let’s Generalize About Men” because it’s been stuck in our heads since Friday

Ever since the third season of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend premiered this Friday, everyone has been spontaneously breaking out in song. More specifically, everyone is singing the episode’s breakout hit, “Let’s Generalize About Men,” because it’s the hilarious misandrist anthem that the world needs right now.

One of the best things about Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is that Rebecca Bunch manages to say what everyone wishes they could say (or, in this case, sing) while also pointing out just how ridiculous it is. “Let’s Generalize About Men” is the perfect example of why Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is one of the best shows on TV. It satisfyingly expresses things that are annoying about men while also poking holes in the broad generalizations people make when talking smack with their friends.

Because the lyrics of “Let’s Generalize About Men” are just so perfect, we want to know more about it. And that’s when the beauty of social media really becomes palpable. That’s because Rachel Bloom, the brains behind Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and the actress who plays Rebecca Bunch, shared some behind the scenes videos from creating the masterpiece on her Instagram. And they’re so much fun.

In one Instagram post, Rachel Bloom showed the girls practicing the choreography.

Yes! Bloom, Donna Lynne Champlin (who plays Paula), Gabrielle Ruiz (who plays Valencia), and Vella Lovell (who plays Heather) look so amazing while body-rolling and singing the hilarious lyrics, “Let’s get super lit and not admit this is some kind of primal ritual we need now and then.”

In another video, Bloom shows the ladies singing the song at the Crazy Ex-Girlfriend table read.

If you’ve ever wanted to be a fly on the wall to see how all of the actors might react to some of the show’s outrageous songs, this is your chance.

Yeah, it’s pretty exciting that we get to see Josh’s reaction to Bloom singing, “There are not exceptions, all three million men are like this!” Considering that Josh left Rebecca at the alter, her character needs to denigrate and denounce the entire male gender, and doing that with one’s girlfriends really is a part of the healing process after a bad breakup.

We’ve all been there.

Laughing is also important, and “Let’s Generalize About Men” successfully satirizes the wine-infused nights shared among a group of girls who just need to make unfounded statements about why men are terrible. Like saying, “All every man does everyday is watch porn, eat wings, burp, fart, and snore.”

It’s all in good fun on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. And “Let’s Generalize About Men” is just about one of the funniest songs ever made.

Sometimes it’s okay to not Pinterest your lunch

by

Laura Falin

posted in Life

My friends have been sending me this video a lot this week. If you haven’t seen it yet, take a moment. I’ll wait.

If you don’t have time to watch it, it’s a how-to for making individual slices of peanut butter that can be saved in the freezer for when you are in a real rush and you don’t have time to spread peanut butter on a piece of bread.

The comments are the best part, honestly. They are mostly from parents who are baffled that we needed a peanut butter and jelly sandwich hack. I thought peanut butter and jelly was the hack. You can’t really get much more convenient than slapping a little PB&J on your bread and sending someone off to school.

Okay, there was that one time I ran out of bread. And peanut butter. And ended up sending the kids to school with bananas stuffed into hot dog buns, which I later discovered on Pinterest as a genius lunch hack. People are apparently attempting my desperate lunch move on purpose.

I say bring back the basic sandwich. We can’t make the kids instant mac & cheese anymore like our foremothers did. We can’t microwave them popcorn for an after-school snack. We’re supposed to have them in extra-curricular programs — but not have them too over-scheduled. When they’re not in school we’re supposed to be engaging in enriching activities at home. We’re supposed to know what they’re doing at all times but not be helicoptering. AND we’re supposed to feed them healthy things but still get them to actually eat.

Please. Please let me have this one sandwich without having to freeze it for three hours or roll it like sushi or DIY my own Uncrustables or cut it out of different colors of bread with a cookie cutter so it makes a cool looking puzzle. Please let me throw it into what I hope is a biodegradable baggie and stuff it into a lunchbox that my daughters find delightful but still empowering as females, along with fruit in a squeezable pouch and some fishy crackers (we can still eat fishy crackers, right?) and let. Me. Be. Done.

Pinterest and Facebook food videos are great for fun birthday cupcake ideas and cold weather soup recipes. I’m kind of addicted to them for that. But when people start trying to Pinterest PB&J, I need a nap.

Is there a hack you’ve seen that you thought was overboard? I’d love to hear it!

It’s Seriously Time to Stop Body-Shaming Kate Middleton

It takes a special kind of horrible to trash pregnant Kate Middleton for looking “too thin” (on the official Kensington Palace Instagram account, no less) after weeks of her terrible case of hyperemesis gravidarum — severe, debilitating morning sickness.

It’s especially horrible considering the recent photos of the former Kate Middleton come from her appearance at a World Mental Health Day reception at Buckingham Palace on Oct. 10 — her public debut after weeks of bed rest (and the official announcement of her third pregnancy).

Kate

Kate

Never mind that Kate’s got two other kids running her ragged (because we’re sure even adorable tots like Prince George, 4, and Princess Charlotte, 2, have trying days). Never mind that this is the third time the duchess has suffered from the condition. Never mind that Kate dragged her exhausted self out of bed to champion mental health advocacy. And never mind that she looked ridiculously fabulous in a demure blue lace Temperley London (one of her favorite designers) dress. Nope. The internet trolls pounced anyway.

“I can’t believe she’s prego, she looks too thin,” wrote one commenter.

Another called her “emaciated” and “severely malnourished.”

A third asked, “Is she pregnant?”

More: Kate Middleton Is Actually Being Shamed for Being Pregnant

For the love of all things good, people, just stop with the judgment. Don’t make Pippa Middleton come after you; an insider told Us that the duchess’s sister has been with her at the palace regularly. Kate is still not out of the hyperemesis woods yet, either, according to a royal aide who spoke with Hello! (can’t imagine the palace would keep that particular royal aide if they knew said aide was chatting up tabloids). The aide said, “The Duchess’ condition is improving, but she is still suffering.”

And we’re still suffering hearing about the incessant body-judging and -shaming that Kate (and plenty of other women) are receiving. Enough horribleness, humanity, OK? Enough.

Our favorite comment on the Kensington Palace Instagram sums it up better than we can. “It is my sincere hope that EVERY SINGLE UNEDUCATED twit who is criticizing The Dutchess [sic] of Cambridge is stricken with intractable vomiting for a few days DO [sic] THEY CAN SEE what this precious young woman is experiencing and has been FOR MONTHS. it’s quite hard to gain any weight when you are puking your toenails up all day. Not to mention she is very tiny all the time. She has two other children she is expending calories on every day. Mainly I want to say thank you Kate for caring enough to make Mental Health a priority and mustering the energy and strength to show support even going through a rough patch of several months. If you are one of the ass hats commenting on her size in a negative way shut the fuck up and educate yourself.”

If we didn’t know better, we might think Pippa wrote that herself.

Coach To Change It’s Company Name To Tapestry And People Are Upset

Handbag company Coach is making a couple of changes, including the name of their products. On Wednesday, the company announced their new name will be Tapestry, Inc. The 76-year old company also serves as home to Kate Spade and Stuart Weitzman.

This news didn’t hold well with many of the company’s supporters; some claimed the name doesn’t identify with leather handbags at all.  In addition to the 2 percent decrease in company shares after the announcement, folks took to Twitter to express their disdain with the news.

While the Manhattan-based company is changing it’s name, the “Coach” label on the handbags will remain. The official name change will go into effect October 31st.

Will this new change stop you from buying Coach bags? Take our poll below and check out their recent designs here.

What It’s Like Working With Johnny Depp on the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Films

Few people have worked more with Johnny Depp than Martin Klebba. The actor, who played Marty the Pirate opposite Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow, appeared in four of the five Pirates of the Caribbean films.

The latest, entitled Dead Men Tell No Tales, is the most action-packed yet. FANDOM caught up with Klebba recently to talk about the film and what it’s like with Depp on set.

Klebba’s most memorable scene in Pirates of the Caribbean 5 was the bank heist, where Captain Jack and company literally rip a vault out of a bank with a pack of horses.

“They were really well trained,” Klebba said of the animals in the ambitious action scene. “We didn’t have a whole lot to worry about.”

Animals costars are a major part of the Pirates franchise.

“In every film we’ve done with animals — whether it be the dog the monkey or the parrot and now the horses — they’ve all been great,” Klebba added.

And of course, we had to ask Klebba about another costar … Johnny Depp.

“He doesn’t get tired of doing Captain Jack,” Klebba revealed. “He’s fresh all the time … he gives you 110% every time.”

Any Depp fan knows this to be true; in addition to playing Captain Jack in five films since 2003, Depp performs at children’s hospitals and even surprised guests playing Sparrow on the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at Disneyland!

Relive the bank heist below and pick up Dead Men Tell No Tales out on Blu-ray this week!
