Trump’s Dow Jones rally no longer the best in history

The Trump rally has some competition. The gains in the Dow Jones industrial average since President Trump was elected, which had been by far the best in the past 50 years for any first term president at the six-, 12- and 18-month marks, are now just the second-best.

Dow Jones vs. S&P 500 vs. Nasdaq: A Guide for Future Warren Buffetts


If you’re the kind of person who likes to watch the news, you’re probably more interested in the happenings of the world than the jarbled letters and numbers that tick across your screen.

 

But you’re probably vaguely familiar with them: DJIA, S&P, Nasdaq: You’ve seen them your entire life, but maybe they’ve never served a purpose to you, so you ignore them and continue watching the nightly news.

Then, when the media reports on the stock market, good or bad, you freak out or rejoice accordingly.

The truth is, you can save yourself a lot of stress and anxiety by actually knowing what those terms mean.

You can stop wondering if your media outlet of choice is sensationalizing the story for click-throughs and ratings and know for yourself how the market is doing.

And you can start by knowing about the major stock indexes.

What Is a Stock Index?

A stock index measures a particular group of companies in the stock market. It’s the average price of the stocks for companies in the index. The media reports on the percentage the index’s stocks collectively rise or fall during the trading day.

An index can measure the biggest companies, smaller companies, most frequently traded, companies headquartered in the U.S., or even the whole dang market.

There are almost 100 indexes used to measure the health of the U.S. stock market, and even more to measure markets around the world.

But you don’t need to know them all; just start with these three.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA)

The Dow is the price-weighted average of stocks of 30 of the largest companies in the U.S. These companies aren’t necessarily the 30 highest-priced stocks, but they are among the most well-established and influential companies in the market.

So when news anchors say “the market is up today,” they’re usually referring to the Dow Jones average.

The Dow is one of the oldest and best-known indexes in the world. You may have recently heard that General Electric got booted from the Dow after 111 years in the index. GE was an original member of the Dow in 1896 and remained in the index continuously since 1907.

But two names you won’t see in the Dow are Amazon and Google (or rather, Alphabet, Google’s parent company). The S&P Dow Jones Committee says adding stocks with four-digit share prices would distort the index.

And much like the honey badger, Amazon and Google don’t care. They love their high stock prices, and they’d have to create more shares of stock — called stock splitting, which companies often do to make their stock prices look more affordable — to enter the Dow.

Why is it important? The media may rely on the Dow to gauge the market but with tech companies like Amazon and Google refusing to conform to take a seat at the Dow table, many suggest finding a more diverse index to base your opinions on.

S&P 500

Standard & Poor’s 500 — aka the S&P 500 or just “the S&P” if you’re cool — is the index of the largest 500 companies traded in the market. Those companies are picked by the same people who decide what companies are in the Dow.

This is the index used by financial professionals to gauge the health of the market. It’s updated every 15 seconds during trading hours, so it gives clear, up-to-the-minute trends in the economy.

Like right now, over a quarter of the stock in the index are from technology companies.  

The financial sector and health care are second and third, respectively, which is a sobering thought when you think about how your credit card interest and health insurance premiums are helping them get there.

Why is it important? The S&P 500 and the Dow often move in the same direction but the S&P has a more inclusive gauge on the pulse of the market. Keep its six-decade history in mind to help you make personal spending, investing and voting decisions.

P.S. Super investor Warren Buffett bet that a simple S&P 500 index fund could beat the performance of a professionally managed hedge fund over 10 years. That bet won him — and Girls Inc. — $ 2.2 million.

Nasdaq Composite

The Nasdaq Composite includes all of the stocks traded on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange, which is confusing because both the exchange and the index can be referred to as just “the Nasdaq.”

Fun fact: Nasdaq is actually an acronym for the National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations.

The more you know.

The Nasdaq is one of the largest stock exchanges in the world, second only to the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). The companies that make up the S&P 500 and Dow Jones are traded on both the NYSE and Nasdaq.

There are several differences between the Nasdaq and NYSE which make the composite an index to follow, with the primary one being that Nasdaq is the home of the technology market. Half of the exchange is made up of tech companies, including Apple, Google, Amazon and Microsoft.

Why is it important? The NYSE is your grandmother’s stock market, less volatile and more reliable. The Nasdaq trades tech companies that are growing, innovative and slightly unpredictable. If you want more technology companies in your portfolio, now you know where to find them.

Virgil Abloh, Kim Jones Design Nike World Cup Collections

Virgil Abloh and Kim Jones both have relationships with soccer — or football.
Jones has said he really doesn’t like football but appreciates the aesthetics. For his World Cup collection for Nike, he wanted to rework the typical uniform and infuse London punk style of the Seventies and Eighties into the collection.
Titled “Football Reimagined,” the assortment includes training shorts, hoodies, jackets and a pair of the Nike x Kim Jones Air Max 360 High.

“That whole punk era was all about proportions that gave power to the wearer. I was inspired by the idea of DIY of the time — cutting up and putting things back together — to create something new,” Jones said.
Abloh recalls high school soccer matches and for his collection, titled “Football, Mon Amour,” he mixed lifestyle with sport typography and designed the Nike x Off-White Zoom Fly Mercurial Flyknit.
“The great thing about the vocabulary and history of football is that aesthetically it has its own look,” Abloh said. “I was always inspired by the way European teams have a sponsor printed over the chest. When I was working on this collection, I wanted to celebrate the different variants of typography.”

Gems from Valeisha Butterfield Jones, Dapper Dan, and Other Black Leaders [VIDEO]

It was a night of celebration, inspiration, and black excellence at the New York Urban League’s annual Frederick Douglass Awards Dinner on Tuesday. This year, dozens of influencers, leaders, and luminaries applauded the astounding achievements of three esteemed African American trailblazers: Google executive Valeisha Butterfield Jones, fashion innovator Dapper Dan, and Next Management President Kyle Hagler. In addition, the ceremony serves as a fundraiser to support the organization’s mission to foster equality and change through scholarships, programs, and initiatives.

New York Urban League President Arva Rice said each honoree was chosen for paving a pathway of access and mobility for other people of color within their respective industries. “Looking at the influence that Dapper Dan has had, not only on his culture but fashion as a whole is so moving. Drawing inspiration from his resilience to pursue his dream and his recent resurgence we felt the history of this living legend had to be told,” said Rice in a statement. She added, “Kyle and Valeisha are amazing representations of how we as a people have evolved to break barriers and to achieve our highest capabilities.”

During their acceptance speeches, each honoree shared inspirational gems about their work and impact on society. Here are a few nuggets.

Valeisha Butterfield Jones

Valeisha Butterfield-Jones

As Google’s Global Head of Women and Black Community and Engagement, Butterfield-Jones advocates on behalf of minorities at the tech giant as well for diversity and inclusion in the industry at large. While accepting the Ann S. Kheel Award, she stressed the need to strive for progress when it comes to black women not only in the tech sphere but also in politics and entrepreneurship. Here are the stats she shared:

  • Black women generate over $ 1 trillion in this country every year, but “we’re still locked out of career opportunities for the companies that we helped build.”
  • Black women are the fastest growing group of entrepreneurs in the U.S., “yet we still don’t have access to capital to scale and grow our businesses.”
  • Black women are the most educated demographic in the U.S., yet they “still make 63 cents to the dollar of every white man.”
  • Black women have the highest voter turnout of any group in the U.S., “but yet, our priorities are not part of any administrations agenda.”


Dapper Dan

Dapper Dan was honored with the Icon Award for the mark that he has made on fashion. During his acceptance speech, he talked about the struggle he’s faced as a black man in fashion earlier on in his career. “When I tried to do something positive in my community, and I tried to open up a store, I couldn’t get businesses to sell to me because I was black.”

Rather than doing business with the influencer, high profile brands have been accused of appropriating Dan’s style. Gucci, for instance, featured a fur bomber jacket with puffy sleeves in its Resort 2018 collection last year that looked almost identical to a Louis Vuitton monogrammed jacket Dan created in the ’80s. After outraged social media users called Gucci out for stealing the style without giving Dan proper recognition, Gucci creative director Alessandro Michele called the jacket “an homage” to Dan. Gucci also made amends by recently partnering with Dan to open a new store in Harlem, N.Y. and providing him with funding and support.


Kyle Hager

Hager, who was honored with the Frederick Douglass Medallion for Leadership and Service for his role in pushing for representation and guiding young people of color in the pursuits of their modeling dreams, paid tribute to Frederick Douglass, himself, and black women, who taught him that “self-actiulization and perseverance [is] the only path to true success.”

The “Angie Tribeca” actress isn’t a convert, though. She was sporting the brand on her own when she connected with cofounder Masaya Kuroki.

Halle Berry, Quincy Jones Honor Departing Academy Prez Cheryl Boone Isaacs

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Quincy Jones, Halle Berry, Kobe Bryant and Common were among the stars paying tribute to former film academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs at the sixth annual Icon Mann pre-Oscar dinner.

Common dropped a verse from his song “The Day Women Took Over” in her honor.

Quincy Jones called her “my beloved baby sister from another mister.” And Halle Berry said her pioneering success made her proud to be a black woman.

Isaacs, the former film academy president who spearheaded the organization’s radical inclusivity efforts after #OscarsSoWhite, was celebrated Tuesday at Icon Mann’s sixth annual pre-Oscar dinner.

The organization founded to honor and support black men presented its inaugural Legacy Award to a woman, lauding Boone Isaacs’ decades of leadership and history of opening doors for people of color.

“Her impact on this business will be felt for many years to come,” Jones said.

They lauded her decades of leadership in entertainment and her legacy of bringing more diversity to the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as she received the inaugural Legacy Award Tuesday at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.

Common shared how he met Boone Isaacs in 2015, the first year of the all-white slate of acting nominees that inspired the “Oscars so white” online protest and criticism of the academy’s diversity. He and John Legend were campaigning for their song “Glory” from the film “Selma” — which would go on to win the Academy Award — when they got to see Boone Isaacs at work.

“I saw what Cheryl was trying to do, and that was move things forward,” Common said. “I saw a real mission and a real plan… And thank you for doing that, because I always felt like the more our children get to see black people in these positions, in leadership or in films, then they’ll know that they can be like (“Black Panther” costume designer) Ruth Carter or (Oscar-nominated screenwriter) Dee Rees.”

Berry, who was the first black woman to win the best actress Oscar, noted that Boone Isaacs had scored two such firsts: She was the first black woman to run a major studio publicity department and the first African-American to serve as president of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.

“I’m so proud to be a black woman when black women like you are leading organizations like the academy,” Berry said. “All the work you did while you were there has changed the way the academy runs.”

This year’s Oscar nominations include a few firsts as well: Rachel Morrison became the first woman to be nominated for cinematography in the academy’s 90-year history, and “Mudbound” writer-director Dee Rees, who was a guest at Tuesday’s dinner, is the first black woman to be nominated for adapted screenplay.

Cedric the Entertainer hosted Tuesday’s dinner at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, where guests included Kobe Bryant, Nia Long, Terry Crews, Dennis Haysbert and Oscar nominee Yance Ford, who directed the documentary “Strong Island.”

Icon Mann founder Tamara Houston announced the establishment of two University of Southern California scholarships in honor of Boone Isaacs and her brother and fellow marketing executive, Ashley Boone.

As Boone Isaacs accepted her award, she implored guests to recognize and employ the power of community.

“We have power, and our power is in our connectedness, our community,” she said. “We all must work together and combine our talents and show all of Hollywood and show America and the world that we have arrived. We are here. Things are changing and we are going to march on.”

The celebrity-studded guest list included actors Nia Long, Terry Crews and Dennis Haysbert.

Alex Jones desperately wants to debate a teenage survivor of the mass shooting that left 17 people dead earlier this month at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Over the weekend, conspiracy site Infowars published a video titled “David Hogg Can’t Remember His Lines in TV Interview,” which suggested without evidence that 17-year-old student David Hogg was a “crisis actor,” or someone paid to play a victim in emergency-response drills.

Hogg, one of the most telegenic survivors of the shooting, has been outspoken in his calls for gun control, making him the subject of criticism from the right and numerous sinister conspiracy theories from the uglier corners of the internet.

Quincy Jones apologises for controversial comments

OHMYGOSSIP — Quincy Jones has apologised for a recent string of controversial comments he made about stars including The Beatles and Michael Jackson.
The 84-year-old record producer has admitted he was wrong for making a string of “silly” comments in interviews, including claiming The Beatles were the “worst musicians in the world”, slamming Taylor Swift’s songwriting capabilities, and accusing the late Michael Jackson of “stealing” the inspiration for many of his biggest hits.
Quincy admits that his loved ones have staged a “family intervention” to get him to apologise, and he claims he has now “learned his lesson”.
On Twitter, the star wrote: “A couple weekends ago, my six daughters (who I’m beyond proud of ) took me aside to do a surprise ‘family intervention’ because of some silly things I’ve said in two recent interviews &…I have LEARNED MY LESSON. Let me tell you, I’m so grateful for my daughters because they aren’t scared to stand up to their daddy. I am an imperfect human & I’m not afraid to say it. And I’m sorry & I’m not afraid to say it.
“When you’ve been fortunate enough to have lived such a long & crazy life (& you’ve recently stopped drinking- three years ago!), certain details about specific events (which do NOT paint the full picture of my intentions not experiences) come flooding back all at once, & even at 85, it’s apparent that “wordvomit” & bad-mouthing is inexcusable. (sic)”
During his recent interviews, Quincy had also touched on important issues such as his desire to tackle racism, and has now apologised that his “bad mouthing” comments have taken away from the importance of those topics.
He continued: “One of the hardest things about this situation is that, this bad-mouthing has contradicted the very real messages I tried to relay about racism, inequality, homophobia, poverty …you name it. And of course I don’t want that. I have already reached out to my friends privately, but when you live a public life, you have a responsibility to be an example, & since I do lead a public life, I wanted to make an apology. (sic)”
Quincy rounded off his Twitter message by apologising to those he “offended”, and thanking his family for making him realise the error of his ways.
He wrote: “I’m sorry to anyone whom my words offended & I’m especially sorry to my friends who are still here with me & to those who aren’t. There friends are like blood family to me. To my dear family & Friends … thank you for your grace. Thank you for calling me out when I’ve clearly made a mistake…many mistakes.
“Even though sometimes it’s difficult to receive criticism or discipline (especially publicly), I want you to know I hear you. I hear ALL of you…& I thank you. So, I encourage you all to please grow with me & keep on keepin’ on. Love, an 85 year old bow-legged man who is still learning from his mistakes. (sic)”

‘Jessica Jones’ Trailer Breakdown: An Origin Story and a New Lover?!

Jessica Jones returns to Netflix March 8, and it’s been a long time coming. After the ups and downs of the various Defenders shows, we’re excited the spotlight’s back on the heavy-drinking, hard-hitting, smart-talking “not a hero.”

We got the FANDOM crew together to break down the biggest moments, and biggest questions from the trailer. We’re also generally just getting hyped for one of the best characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Wanna follow along? We’ve got the transcript right here for ya.


0:00 – 0:10
Here we see Jessica in some form of group therapy. As she throws the ball against the wall, she begins to share what memories she has of her own origin story. This is a clear sign that Season 2 will explore the yet unknown source of her powers and potentially reveal who experimented on her.


:10
The trailer then cuts to the death of her parents in a car accident, which was explored briefly in the first season.


:10 – :21
Jessica then recounts the events that she remembers: her experimentation, her abduction, and the abuse she suffered at the hands of Kilgrave. As far as we know, Kilgrave did not give Jessica her powers, he only used them once he discovered how strong she was. Is the show teasing something more here?


:30
When Malcolm asks Jessica how Anger Management class was, Jessica has the perfect retort: “Still angry.” This shows us that while she’s willing to get help for anger management, she knows she needs something more than just group therapy. Her trusty whiskey bottle makes an appearance here as well — definitely a staple from Season 1. You could even call whiskey Jessica’s most faithful sidekick — don’t tell Daredevil.


:30 – 1:00
Here we see Jessica’s life as a PI and as a hero, though don’t call her hero to her face.


1:00 – 1:17
During Season 1, Jessica did not want to become a superhero. Now it seems as though she’s reconsidering her position. Is that because of the time she recently spent with the Defenders?


1:32
In this scene, we can clearly see Jessica defending a young Trish Walker, possibly from an attacker. This reemphasizes the importance of Jessica and Trish’s relationship and how often they have saved each other.


1:38
Here we can see Jessica kissing a mystery man — definitely not her lover from Season 1, Luke Cage. The mystery man could be actor J.R. Ramirez, who is playing a character this season named Oscar.


1:54
There’s a quick shot of Will Simpson here, who is back for Season 2 — as well a variety of scenes showing Jessica kicking ass. Will she rise up to be a hero this season, will she discovery who made her into one? We’ll find out on March 8th, when Jessica Jones Season 2 hits Netflix globally.

ENTERTAINMENT DEAL UPDATE:

‘Jessica Jones’ Villains We Want to See in Season 2

It’s hard to imagine Jessica Jones without its awesome villain from the first season. David Tennant as Kilgrave was fantastic, and whoever the Season 2 villain is has some huge shoes to fill.

With that in mind, we put together a few of the villains in the universe that are waiting to be fleshed out — and hopefully one or two aren’t just wishful thinking.

Will Simpson (Nuke)

Nuke is the musclehead minion/cop who eventually enhances his speed and strength with top secret, military-grade supplements. One to get his adrenaline pumping, one to make sure he can breathe while his adrenaline is pumping, and one to chill him the hell out when he’s just grabbing pancakes.

In the comics, Kingpin hired Nuke to take out Daredevil in the Hell’s Kitchen area. It’s a little more complicated in the show. We saw Will Simpson in the first season of Jessica Jones, first trying to kill her with a gun and later resorting to his pills. As someone who knew what it’s like to be under Kilgrave’s control, his intent was to take out someone he thought was still under Kilgrave’s influence and shielding him.


Will Simpson Nuke Jessica Jones

Nuke’s certainly not a “main” baddie. He probably wouldn’t even warrant an appearance in one of the movies without some serious reworking. We still haven’t seen him in his “final form” with an American flag painted on his face yet, but it’s quite possible the show is happy to leave that as a relic of a different era.

The upcoming season of Jessica Jones is all about finding answers from the past, and Nuke could play into those insights as well. Being a product of the program that spat out the likes of Captain America and Wolverine, he has his own creation story to explore, much like Jones.

IGH

Don’t search too much for what IGH is an acronym for, because it stands for nothing. This is the paramilitary organisation responsible for doling out supplements to Nuke and others, enhancing their physical abilities while destroying their minds.

There were several hints towards the end of Season 1 of Jessica Jones that we’d be seeing more and more of IGH. Its mysterious nature and the fact that it’s in the business of creating powers would fit the season’s theme of discovering one’s genesis.

Willis Stryker (Diamondback)

Diamondback has a long and complicated history in the Luke Cage storyline — as you can imagine, what with him being Cage’s half-brother and later nemesis. But this particular thread was never fully wrapped up. The last we saw of Diamondback, he was on a hospital bed with Burstein walking into the room, no doubt about to do all kinds of SCIENCE.


Diamondback Luke Cage Jessica Jones

Jessica Jones’ story is closely intertwined with that of Luke Cage. Obviously there’s a whole show dedicated to Luke Cage, and given Diamondback’s political maneuvering through Cottonmouth and Black Mariah, it might make more sense for him to be there.

As we’ve seen though, these shows have absolutely no problem sharing. We’re due for Season 2 of Luke Cage later on in 2018, so what better way to set up Diamondback than at least teasing him in Jessica Jones?

Mary Walker

We know that Leah Gibson has been cast as a street-wise, nurse-educated character named “Ingrid” in the new season, which many have connected to a Daredevil villain.

Typhoid Mary — or Bloody Mary, or just plain Mary depending on which of her personalities is in control at the time — would provide a bit of a different challenge with her telekinetic powers.



She also has a storied history with many other superheroes such as Spider-Man and Daredevil. The timid nature of Mary when she’s in control is enough to fool even Daredevil’s heightened senses, and is sure to provide some moral conflicts for heroes who have to contend with a gentle soul and a sadistic villain in the same body.

Gideon Mace

Halfway through Season 1 of Jessica Jones, Luke Cage walks into Jones’ office asking if she’ll investigate a case involving Angela del Toro. This could just be a cheeky mention of White Tiger, but it could also point to a larger inclusion of the hero.

To include another female hero would fit into the stated goal of making Season 2 very much about female empowerment. The #metoo movement will be front and centre, and every episode in the season is directed by a woman. In the same vein, we might see Trish Walker developed more as a hero as well.


Gideon Mace

What case would involve Angela del Toro? Her own origin story involves the murder of her uncle Hector Ayala, the first person to assume the name “White Tiger.” He had retired after his family was murdered by a man named Gideon Mace.

Upon his murder, the amulet that conferred his physical powers was delivered to Angela del Toro, and then found its way to Ava Ayala. That leaves her with a bunch of new powers and a major axe to grind.

At the moment, it looks like the most likely villains are Typhoid Mary and IGH, perhaps with a dash of Nuke. But who knows, the show is perfectly capable of surprising us, and that wouldn’t be a bad thing at all.

Black History Month: Esther Jones, The Original Betty Boop

Editor’s Note: This article was originally published on February 8, 2017 

Betty Boop is largely recognized as an iconic cartoon character and the first animated American sex symbol. However, her signature style and voice was appropriated by an African American jazz singer and entertainer.

During the late 1920s, Esther “Baby Esther” Jones became known for singing in a baby voice and regularly performing at the legendary Cotton Club in Harlem. Then, after watching Esther’s cabaret act in 1928, white jazz singer Helen Kane adopted Jones’ singing and scatting style. Kane also changed the interpolated words “boo-boo-boo” and “doo-doo-doo” to “boop-oop-a-doop” while recording her hit single “I Wanna Be Loved By You.”

Kane never publicly admitted to appropriating Esther’s singing style, but the truth was revealed when Kane filed a lawsuit against Max Fleischer, the animator who created Betty Boop in 1930. Ironically, Kane claimed that Betty Boop was imitating and profiting off of her image.

According to The New York Daily News,

“In 1932, Kane filed a $ 250,000 lawsuit against Max Fleischer and the film company Paramount Publix Corp., contending that they had exploited her persona and asserting she had invented the phrase, ‘Boop-oop-a-doop,’  most famously heard in her 1928 hit song, ‘I Wanna Be Loved By You.’

“Before a judge in state Supreme Court in Manhattan, the defense called Jones’ manager, Lou Walton, to testify. Walton said he taught Esther how to merge the scat lyrics “boo-boo-boo” and “doo-doo-doo,” and use them in her uptown performances. He added that he saw Baby Esther’s acts with Kane before the white singer started her ‘booping.’

“When Walton produced a sound film featuring Baby Esther practicing in her baby voice and “scatting” as proof, Kane, at the height of her career, was exposed as a fraud and lost the case.

 

White singers have a long history of getting away with appropriating black music throughout the 20th century without legally crediting, acknowledging, or paying African American artists. Thus, it does not come as a surprise that Esther Jones did not file suit against Kane or Max Fleischer, where she would have had the burden of proving her case against a white man or white woman.

FASHION DEALS UPDATE:

Jessica Jones Season 2 Is Netflix’s Next Marvel Binge. Here’s What to Expect

Marvel’s best whiskey-swigging, gritty heroine Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) is back and still fighting demons from her past. The last time we saw Jessica Jones in season 1 of the Netflix series about the superhero, she had finally vanquished Kilgrave (David Tennant) and started answering calls from people around New York needing her help as private investigator. She later appeared in Marvel’s The Defenders, joining streetwise heroes Luke Cage, Daredevil and Iron Fist to take down their enemies in the Netflix series.

A look at Netflix’s trailer for season 2 of Jessica Jones finds the angry superhero detective examining the details surrounding her parents’ death and the mystery of the experiments that gave her extraordinary powers. It also appears her tormenter Kilgrave will return to the series — whether he comes back to life or is appears in Jessica’s flashbacks remains to be seen.

Netflix

Season 2 of Jessica Jones hits Netflix on March 8. Here’s what’s ahead for the hero.

Jessica Jones season 2 trailer

The trailer for the second season of Jessica Jones reveals little about the plot of our main hero’s new adventures. She’s still drinking a lot. And while she is trying to piece her life back together, Jessica can’t seem to shake the “super vigilante shit” constantly being thrown at her, as the the events of season 1 and The Defenders make her known throughout New York for her powers. The circumstances of her family’s death in a car accident and the murky way she received her powers further haunt Jessica.

“I have 17 years of questions, and they are deep,” she says in the trailer.

Jessica Jones season 2 cast

Netflix

As she tries to crack the case of her own origin story, other figures from her past and current life appear in Jessica Jones season 2. Her best friend Trish Walker appears to be on her way to becoming Marvel hero Hellcat, a sidekick to Jessica and superhero in her own right. Known as Patsy Walker in the comics, Jessica Jones‘s Trish came to her friend’s aid more than once in season 1. This time around, it looks like Trish may get a little more to do as she jumps to Jessica’s defense — whether the angsty detective likes it or not.

“Jessica might not want a sidekick, but she needs one,” she says in the trailer.

Other returning figures include David Tennant as Kilgrave, Eka Darville as Malcolm Ducasse and Carrie-Anne Moss as Jeri Hogarth. It’s unclear whether Mike Colter will return to reprise his role as Luke Cage.

New cast members will include Janet McTeer (Me Before You, Damages) in an unrevealed role and J.R. Ramirez (Power, Arrow) as Oscar, a single father who is the new superintendent at Jessica’s building.

Jessica Jones season 2 villain

Jessica’s antagonists are still everywhere in season 2 of Jessica Jones. One of her oldest enemies, Kilgrave, or The Purple Man — who despite dying at the end of the first season — still appears to live on in some form or another in the new season (Tennant was confirmed to return to the series). The trailer does not show the circumstances of Kilgrave’s return, but reveals a pair of hands clapping three times while Jessica has a purple light shone on her, hinting that she hasn’t fully shaken one of her biggest enemies.

Other enemies abound — Jessica is looking for the shadowy figures who performed experiments on her as a child and a mysterious man wants to take over her detective agency. The trailer further warns of a killer beyond Jessica’s control.

Where Jessica Jones season 2 fits in the Marvel-Netflix timeline

Jessica Jones season 2 comes after the events of the Battle of New York shown in the 2012 theatrical release The Avengers, which the first season acknowledged and does again in the new series when a child asks Jessica if she knows Captain America. New Yorkers are also aware that she teamed up with heroes Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist in The Defenders, hence the ramping up of higher vigilante demands. New seasons of Daredevil, Luke Cage and Iron Fist are also coming to Netflix, though specific premiere dates have not been announced yet.

‘SNL’ Comedian Leslie Jones Returns To Olympics As Super Fan

NEW YORK (AP) — Super fan Leslie Jones is returning to the Olympics.

The “Saturday Night Live” comedian is joining NBC’s coverage of the Pyeongchang Olympics as a contributor, reprising her role from the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Games.

The network said Tuesday that Jones will attend Olympic events, meet athletes and spread her enthusiasm for the games on television and online. The games run Feb. 9-25.

Jones posted a photo on Twitter of her dressed in red, white and blue gear while working out on an exercise machine with the caption, “Guess What Time It is Y’all!!!!! And Guess Where I’m Going!!!!! Slay All Day USA!!!!!!!”

During the Rio Games, Jones had been live-tweeting while watching the games in the U.S. and posted a video of herself decked out in the American flag and wearing plastic gold medals. Upon seeing it, NBC Olympics president Jim Bell invited her to Rio.

Bell says: “Experiencing the Olympics through the lens of Leslie is unlike anything else. Her passion for Team USA is contagious, and her adventures in South Korea should be fascinating.”

Jones was an Emmy nominee for “SNL” and hosted last year’s BET Awards.

Valeisha Butterfield Jones Makes Major Boss Moves With New Appointment at Google

Google executive Valeisha Butterfield Jones will continue to advocate for diversity and inclusion in tech but on a new level and with a new title. The award-winning community engagement, multicultural marketing, and communications strategist confirmed to Black Enterprise that she has been promoted to global head of women and black community engagement for Google. In this role, she will be responsible for driving systemic and measurable change to create an even more inclusive culture at the tech giant. She will also lead a worldwide effort to enhance equal opportunities for women and African Americans at the company through recruitment and retention.

The Impact

The 39-year-old joined Google back in 2016 as the head of black community engagement, where she focused on implementing diversity and inclusion practices and strategies. During her stint, she helped create initiatives to groom and elevate people of color for leadership roles, including the Decoding Leadership series, which teaches black Googlers how to navigate and climb the corporate ladder. Butterfield Jones also played an instrumental role in launching Howard West, an intense summer residency program that trains and mentors Howard University STEM students at the Googleplex campus in Silicon Valley. Additionally, she helped design the Decoding Race talk series to educate Googlers around the country on race, culture, and bias.

“I met one-on-one with Googlers and heard their stories and watched senior leaders experience an awakening as they learned some of the challenges young black professionals face in tech,” Butterfield Jones told BE.

The Road Ahead

Despite the progress made at Google, Butterfield Jones’ promotion comes at a time when the company is facing a lawsuit and under a federal investigation over unfair payment practices toward women. The announcement also comes just weeks after the lack of diversity in tech was magnified at CES, arguably the biggest tech conference in the world. Nevertheless, the strategist makes no qualms about the challenge that lies ahead. “Education and awareness is key and we made tremendous progress at Google over the last two years,” she said. “In my role, new programs will also be developed and scaled, so please stay tuned.”

Before Google

Prior to entering the tech industry, Butterfield Jones held a variety of high-profile positions in politics and entertainment. From 2011 to 2012, she served as the National Youth Vote Director for the Obama for America campaign. In 2009, she was appointed Deputy Director of Public Affairs at the U.S. Department of Commerce under then-President Barack Obama.

Early in her career, she served as the Executive Assistant to the president of HBO Sports after graduating from Clark Atlanta University in 2000. She also worked her way up from an intern for Russell Simmons to the Executive Director of his media firm, Rush Communications.

In addition to actively mentoring young women at Google, Butterfield Jones has served as the CEO of Women in Entertainment Empowerment Network (WEEN)—a nonprofit that uplifts and mentors women working in entertainment while striving to promote positive images of women in society—for the last 10 years.

Butterfield Jones, who is also a mother and the wife of NBA champ Dahntay Jones, is not the only black woman making boss moves this year. Last week, it was announced that Teen Vogue Editor-in-Chief Elaine Welteroth is parting ways with the magazine and reportedly has a deal with CAA, a prestigious talent agency based in L.A.

Rashida Jones just called out critics of the Golden Globes red-carpet blackout

‘This is not a silent protest’

rashida jones toy story

The Golden Globes 2018, airing on 7th January, are set to serve as a platform for political protest – and while last year’s focus was protesting Trump’s immigration ban – this year will target sexual harassment in Hollywood.

The past few months have been consumed by a shocking wave of sexual harassment allegations against Hollywood heavyweights, prompted by the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment allegations, seeing over 50 women come forward with claims of harassment and in some cases assault against the 65-year-old.

It was therefore reported last week that actresses will be wearing black to the Golden Globe awards in protest – from nominees Jessica Chastain and Meryl Streep to Emma Stone.

It seems however, that not everyone is happy with the political stand, with actress Rose McGowan – one of the first to speak out about Harvey Weinstein – voicing her outrage against the idea.

According to Rose, a symbolic ‘silent’ protest is completely counter-productive, with the actress explaining how ‘silence is the problem.’

‘Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest,’ she posted. ‘YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change.’

She continued: ‘I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa’ – a dig at the fashion house that Weinstein’s estranged wife founded.

Rose isn’t the only person to have opposed the ban, with some people finding problems with the concept of ‘silent protest.’

Rose McGowan

According to Hollywood actress Rashida Jones however, this couldn’t be further from the truth.

‘This is not a silent protest,’ the 41-year-old actress explained. ’I don’t think why we wear black is divisive as much as it is being discussed and debated without all the facts. Many women on the red carpet will discuss what’s important to them about their choice to protest and wear black. We wear black to stand in solidarity with our sisters and to say time’s up on this imbalance of power and the abuses that come with it, regardless of what industry you work in.’

She continued: ‘It’s time for every workplace to look more like our world, where women have equal representation.’

‘I have been so moved by the quick community that has come about in the past few months,’ she explained. ‘I’m in awe of the passion and determination and thoughtfulness of the women I’ve been working with. It’s so powerful to experience this moment all together. The deep-rooted inequality in our industry felt impenetrable, and, in an instant, we felt hope that this moment could possibly effect real change, in our industry and beyond.’

It never ends!” Trump had thrown his support behind Moore despite several sexual misconduct allegations against him.

The first teaser for “Jessica Jones” Season 2 is here, and she beats up *so* many people


The first teaser for “Jessica Jones” Season 2 is here, and she beats up *so* many people

Lots of explosions, throwing bad guys against walls and through windows, heavy drinking, and photography. You know what all this means? Jessica Jones Season 2 is coming — and Netflix just dropped the first teaser for it, along with the premiere date!!

If Season 1 of the series was all about Jessica beating up and taking down bad guys…Season 2 is basically the same thing. And that’s a good thing! But this time around, Jessica is now dealing with some pretty heavy stuff, namely one named Kilgrave. Yes, Kilgrave again. If you remember correctly, in order to save herself (and her best friend, Trish, and also all of New York City) Jessica snapped his neck at the end of Season 1. That decision is still weighing heavy on her when we pick up for Season 2. Even though she’s starting to put her life back together, she can’t shake the choices she’s made in the past.

Oh yeah, and also the ghost of Kilgrave is following her around. Normal stuff.

And, on top of that, Trish is urging Jessica to look into her past because, “knowing what was done to you might help you.” Jessica doesn’t think that’s a good idea, or even a reasonable one, and as she replies, “what if facing it makes it worse?” Knowing how bad it’s already gotten for Jessica, can it get much worse? You know what, probably. At least her three two other super friends aren’t along for the ride this time.

The teaser is set to “Barracuda,” which is maybe the MOST Jessica Jones song ever.  Just don’t throw any of this “with great power comes great responsibility” BS around with her, because she’s not having it. She’ll throw up on you (her words, not mine).

Mark your calendars and cancel your plans, Netflix has Jessica Jones Season 2 slated to drop on March 8th, 2018. Time to start stocking up on killer leather coats and well worn combat boots.

Alabama Senate Candidate Jones Reaches Out To Black Voters

SELMA, Ala. (AP) — Speaking at the scene of the one of the climactic confrontations of the civil rights movement, Alabama Democrat Doug Jones on Saturday again made his pitch that Alabama’s black and white voters have unified concerns that he can best represent.

“They face more issues in common,” Jones said after walking during Selma’s Christmas parade. “They face issues of health care, they face issues of education, they face issues of jobs.”

Trying to be the first Democrat elected to the U.S. Senate from Alabama in 25 years is an uphill fight for Jones, a white attorney with working-class roots who has to gain the support of both white and black voters.

Jones needs to peel away moderate GOP support from the deeply conservative Roy Moore, who has maintained a dedicated evangelical following, despite multiple allegations of sexual misconduct against underage girls. But black voters are key to any hopes the Democrats have of victory. The 23 percent of registered voters who are African-American are the bedrock of the Alabama’s Democratic party, and a poor turnout by those voters could sink Jones.

Voting and voting rights are ever-present in Selma, which lives daily with the legacy of 1965’s Bloody Sunday, when state troopers beat civil rights demonstrators at the Edmund Pettus Bridge. Televised scenes of those beatings galvanized national opinion and helped spur Congress to pass the Voting Rights Act. Jones walked past the west end of the bridge Saturday, across the Alabama River from where the confrontation took place.

African-Americans in Dallas County are heavily Democratic. But it’s unclear if black residents of Selma and Alabama will be energized to vote for Jones in the numbers he needs. Some voters Saturday said they were turned off by the campaign’s conflict, and weren’t sure whether Jones would be able to have an impact in Republican-controlled Washington.

“Really, he probably can’t do anything,” said 57-year-old Lorenzo Simmons, an African-American who works at a silicon metal foundry and intends to vote for Jones. “It’s probably more about the body as a whole.”

Jones acknowledged that such fatalism can keep people from the polls.

“We’ve got to let them know that they have a partner, somebody who’s going to be working for them, that’s going to be a voice for them and to try to reach out to those communities,” he said Saturday. “It’s not an easy task with any segment of the population that gets very cynical, in this state in particular.”

Aware of the odd dynamics of a special election held during the holiday season — when voters’ minds are more often on football or shopping than politics — Jones’ campaign has launched an effort to get out the vote that includes radio, billboards and neighborhood canvassing. The Alabama chapter of the NAACP and a collaboration of majority-black fraternities and sororities also have launched a drive aimed at getting those younger voters to the polls.

State Sen. Hank Sanders, a Democrat from Selma, said he had concerns that Jones wasn’t reaching enough black voters, but believes he is doing better recently in that effort.

Partly to reach black voters, Jones has emphasized his role leading the prosecution against the two Klansmen who bombed Birmingham’s 16th Street Baptist Church in 1963, killing four little girls.

The campaign has also specifically targeted millennial African-Americans with ads emphasizing positions on education and the economy.

Tommy Edwards, a frequent Democratic campaign volunteer in Tuscaloosa, shook hands with Jones at a barbecue restaurant after the parade. Edwards said intends to drive people to the polls.

“The black voters are going to decide this,” Edwards said. “We’ve got to get the people to the polls.”

Jones’ focus on “kitchen table” issues connects better with some black voters who said they’re turned off by Moore, even though in many cases they share Moore’s evangelical Christian faith. Barbara Lewis of Selma said she worries about the education her grandchildren are getting in the city’s public schools. Simmons said he hoped Jones could help improve the economy of rural Alabama’s Black Belt, where incomes are low, unemployment is relatively high and population is shrinking. In Selma, where the median yearly household income of $ 22,000 is only 40 percent of the national average, the city struggles with recruiting new businesses and preventing abandonment of its grand 19th century core.

“Put some money and some business in the rural areas, the people that have been forgotten,” Simmons said.

Some black Democrats, though, say multiple allegations of sexual misconduct against Moore over the past month are motivating them. Elizabeth Engerman, a Montgomery retiree who was shopping with her father Saturday in Selma, said the accusations levied against Moore “blew me out of the water.” She said friends at her beauty shop are hotly opposed to Moore, who has denied the allegations.

“We as African-Americans don’t vote in these types of elections,” Engerman said. “But they’re coming out in droves, or at least they say they are.”

Jones, for his part, continues to tell audiences that “we have more in common than we have to divide us,” casting Moore as the divider.

“What we’re trying to show is a stark contrast between Roy Moore and Doug Jones and I don’t think the contrast can be greater. And it’s really about what people want for the future of Alabama going forward, one that’s divisive or one that tries to unify the people of the state.”

Rashida Jones is refuting reports that she ended her work on Toy Story 4 early because of “unwanted advances” from Pixar chief John Lasseter, who took a leave of absence Tuesday citing unspecified “missteps.”

Multiple news outlets have reported that Lasseter allegedly engaged in misconduct with Disney and Pixar employees, with the Hollywood Reporter reporting that the allegations included “grabbing, kissing” and “making comments about physical attributes.” The same THR report said that Jones and her writing partner Will McCormack exited their assignment on Toy Story 4 because of alleged sexual harassment by Lasseter.

In a statement to the New York Times, however, Jones said McCormack instead cited “philosophical differences” and Pixar’s treatment of female and minority employees.

“We did not leave Pixar because of unwanted advances. That is untrue,” they said. “We parted ways because of creative and, more importantly, philosophical differences.

In his memo to staff obtained by THR, Lasseter wrote that he had recently “had a number of difficult conversations that have been very painful for me.”

“It’s never easy to face your missteps, but it’s the only way to learn from them,” Lasseter said. As a result, I’ve been giving a lot of thought to the leader I am today compared to the mentor, advocate and champion I want to be. It’s been brought to my attention that I have made some of you feel disrespected or uncomfortable.”

In their statement to the Times, Jones said McCormack lamented a culture at Pixar “where women and people of color do not have an equal creative voice. … We encourage Pixar to be leaders in bolstering, hiring and promoting more diverse and female storytellers and leaders. We hope we can encourage all those who have felt like their voices could not be heard in the past to feel empowered.”

Pixar has been criticized for not portraying a more diverse cast of characters in the past. Prior to this week’s release of Coco, the studio’s newest movie featuring a Mexican boy as the main character, Pixar had yet to feature a non-white protagonist.

Lasseter had noticed that himself, telling the Guardian back in 2015 that “it’s very important for us to have female, ethnic characters.”

In his memo to employees this week, Lasseter said he aims to take a six-month sabbatical from Disney and Pixar.

Little Known Black History Fact: James Wormley Jones

James Wormley “Jack” Jones was a World War I veteran and former officer with the Washington Metropolitan Police Department. Jones is considered to be the first special agent for the Federal Bureau of Investigation and was instrumental in helping the agency take down Marcus Garvey’s burgeoning movement.

Jones was born September 22, 1884 in Fort Monroe, Virginia. His family moved to Cambridge, Massachusetts, but Jones eventually returned to Virginia to complete his collegiate studies at Virginia Union University. In 1905, he joined Washington’s police force, rapidly rising  to detective. In 1917, Jones joined the U.S. Army and trained as an officer, then was assigned to the 368th Infantry at the rank of Captain.

Director A. Bruce Bielaski, then director of the FBI,  appointed Jones on November 19, 1919.  Jones worked under J. Edgar Hoover, who maintained a lifelong obsession with so-called “subversive” groups of activists and organizers thought to be a threat to the national security of America. Jones was sent to infiltrate Garvey’s Universal Negro Improvement Association.

Adopting the code name “Agent 800,” Jones, who appeared to be a man of European descent, worked to convince the skeptical UNIA members that he was indeed Black. His investigations sank Garvey’s movement with charges of mail fraud, but his true identity revealed itself in later operations as he was recognized as a former police officer. No longer a valuable necessity for the FBI, he resigned in 1923.

Jones passed on December 11, 1959 in Dormont, Pennsylvania at the age of 74.

Mac Jones, a third-string quarterback for the University of Alabama, was arrested Friday morning and charged with DUI after allegedly driving under the influence.

The 19-year-old Alabama football player was arrested after performing a field sobriety test following a minor car crash, ESPN reported. Jones was also charged with improper identification of a minor for showing a fake ID, according to the report.

Alabama football coach Nick Saban suspended Jones from Friday night’s game against Louisiana State University, the Times Free Press reported.

“We are disappointed in Mac’s actions, and this is obviously not the kind of behavior we expect from our players,” Saban said in a statement to the Times Free Press. “We will further evaluate what actions we need to take moving forward so we can correct the behavior. It is a privilege to represent the University of Alabama, and there are certain responsibilities that go along with that privilege.”

‘Ya’ll Know I’m Ghetto’: Leslie Jones Unable To Control Herself During NYFW Show

Whether she’s cheering for Olympic athletes or watching an episode of “Game of Thrones,” Leslie Jones has never been one to curb her enthusiasm for any occasion.

That’s why it’s no surprise that the “Saturday Night Live” star was unable to keep her composure while sitting in the front row of Christian Siriano’s spring 2018 fashion show.

The “Project Runway” champ, if you recall, was the first to answer Leslie’s call (literally, with a hand-waving emoji) when she tweeted that no designer was willing to dress her for the “Ghostbusters” premiere.

On Saturday, the woman fanned all the way out at his collection, whooping and hollering over the array of ball gowns and cocktail dresses that came down the runway, often cheering by herself.

She saved her biggest reaction to model Coco Rocha, who closed the show.

Jones took to Twitter afterward the experience, saying “I think [I] acted more like I was at a game than [a] fashion show!! Y’all know I’m ghetto.”

And of course, Leslie responded.

Here’s what the Washington Post’s famed fashion critic Robin Givhan thought of Jones that night:

…It was a delight. Fabulous. Exhilarating. It was a gust of fresh air into an industry that too often sucks the pleasure out of a something that should be, if not fun, then at least not like surgery without anesthesia. Oh, sure, Jones, the “Saturday Night Live” comedian, was not working, unlike many of the people in the audience. She was not racing around town from one show to another and trying to take appointments in between.

But still, Jones was a reminder that although fashion can feed the culture in all sorts of ways, its most basic mission is to make people feel good about themselves and about others. So, we should cheer fashion.

Below, Leslie freaking out over Coco Rocha from various angles:

Suranne Jones on Doctor Foster, infidelity and ‘all that unused sexual tension’

The brilliant Doctor Foster is back, and with it one of Britain’s most gifted actresses. We talk to Suranne Jones about the dark power struggle in store for round two, and what she learned from being on Coronation Street

Suranne Jones Marie Claire

Two years ago, the nation’s productivity took a nosedive as millions of people became virtually unable to talk about anything other than one BBC television show. Doctor Foster, the story of a GP slowly unravelling her husband’s affair, was gripping, enraging and ripe for debate. And it ended with a pretty conclusive showdown. So it’s perhaps understandable that its star, Suranne Jones, who won a Bafta for season one, was hesitant about bringing it back for part two.

Where could the story go now, with the cheater expelled, the crockery smashed, the marriage (apparently) over? ‘When they said, “Should we do another one?” I was suspicious that this was just because the first one was a success,’ admits Jones. But then she sat down with the show’s writer, Mike Bartlett (Charles III), and realised there was plenty of ground left to cover – and then some.

Suranne Jones

So Doctor Foster is back, bringing with it one of the country’s most watchable and skilled homegrown actresses, after a brief hiatus taken for the birth of her son (now 18 months old) with journalist husband Laurence Akers.

Jones, now 38, was a drama-loving kid who joined the Oldham Theatre Workshop when she was eight – in the same year as Anna Friel – and cut her teeth on Coronation Street as ‘bulldog in hoop earrings’ Karen McDonald.

She walked away from Corrie in 2004, turning down well-paid offers to appear on reality TV for a stage role in A Few Good Men at London’s Haymarket Theatre with Rob Lowe. But it was her turning-point role as a murderer released from jail in Unforgiven – a 2009 drama by Happy Valley writer Sally Wainwright – that really threw her talents into sharp relief.

Wainwright and Jones went on to make five seasons of women-led hit detective drama Scott & Bailey together (with Jones starring opposite Lesley Sharp as chaotic DC Rachel Bailey) and on the week we meet, Jones has just inked a deal with HBO to star in Wainwright’s 19th-century biopic of Britain’s ‘first modern lesbian’, Anne Lister. So if she’s currently Britain’s best-kept secret, she won’t be for much longer. But first, there’s the small matter of a cheating ex-husband to contend with.

You were initially reluctant to make a second season of Doctor Foster. What changed your mind?

‘I had to be sold on the fact that things weren’t as tied up as they seemed at the end of season one [but] Mike Bartlett, the show’s writer, is exceptional. He said, “When have you seen a show [about] the aftermath of a divorce once everyone seems to have sorted their lives out?” At the beginning of this season, Simon and Kate are together and they’ve moved away like Gemma wanted. Gemma’s gone back to being a doctor and she’s looking after her son, who is now turning into an adult. Two years down the line, what happens if that person comes back into your life? You still have to parent a child together, but you really fucking hate each other because of the affair. Those feelings haven’t gone away – they’re just dormant.’

Much of the drama in season one hinged on Gemma discovering the affair. How will this season be able to maintain that tension?

‘From Gemma’s perspective, she and Simon had a really active, sexual, loving, working relationship. Not only did the marriage stop and she found out she didn’t have the life she thought she’d had for two years, she was also sexually active and in love. What do you do with all that unused sexual tension that’s still there?’

Why do you think the show was such a talking point? Is there a fascination with infidelity?

‘Maybe it’s the fear of knowing that could actually happen to you in real life. It’s not a thriller, it’s not a murder, it’s something that feels more tangible. A lot of people have experienced a relationship betrayal, even if it was when they were 16 and with their first love. It could also be the fear that your beautiful, happy marriage could break down at any point when someone else comes along and taps into things that people can’t control.’

Suranne Jones

Have strangers come up to you on the street to share their own experiences with infidelity?

‘Yes, and I actually had two friends going through divorce at the time of filming. I also have a friend who recently spilt up from the father of her child – you can see the pain can go on for as long as three or four years in people when that happens. We also use the word “mental” a lot to describe women who have just had their heart broken. [But] the things they do are because they’re probably having a mini nervous breakdown. A lot of women told me they couldn’t believe the things they did.’

You were newly married when you filmed the first season. Was that ever a bit of a downer?

‘Yes… well, no. We were clearly very happy, but as soon as I finished Doctor Foster I obviously wanted to run straight home to give my husband a big cuddle, and I got pregnant within months of finishing! Luckily I was in a good place to be able to tell that story. Can you imagine if there were any doubts about my own relationship? It would’ve been awful.’

What can you tell us about your upcoming role as Anne Lister?

‘I knew that Sally [Wainwright] was interested in Anne Lister, but it’s taken 15 years to get it going. Previously, the timing wasn’t right for her to tell it in the way that she wanted to. Period dramas can be quite dry at times, as we look at our history in the same way. Anne Lister is just a different story that needed telling in a different way. The more I read about her, the more I go, “Oh, my god”. In the 19th century Lister was a landowner, she travelled, she was an entrepreneur, she refused to marry because she loved women, so she met a neighbouring heiress and “married” her. They went to the church and performed what Lister called a marriage, and then lived and travelled together.’

Is it because there’s been a wider conversation about gender and sexuality in the past few years that now feels like the right time?

‘I think given the fact that same-sex marriage and civil partnerships have happened, she looks particularly ahead of her time. It isn’t just about her sexual preferences, though. It’s about the fact that women nowadays have so much pressure, and so much opportunity work-wise and career-wise that not only was Anne Lister in love with women but also she was way ahead of the game in her professional life, too. I’ve read five episodes of the show and they’re brilliant.’

Suranne Jones

Your first big TV role was on a soap opera, which are notoriously hard work and involve long hours. What impact has that had on you?

‘Acting was something I always really wanted to do and, when I left school and was old enough to get an agent, Coronation Street was like the thing to get into. When I got it, my Grandad Bob and Nana Bertha were like, “What?! Oh, my god!” There are some people who are naturally talented, who just have it coming out of their ears; they just sparkle with talent. Some people – and I put myself in this category – don’t fit a mould. I always looked a lot older. I was as tall as a giraffe, even at ten, but I found my place and I really worked at it.’

You said you wanted to make Scott & Bailey in 2008 because there were too many women playing ‘mothers of’ and ‘daughters of’. How do you think the landscape has changed now?

‘It’s an amazing time for television, [and] the parts for women my age are great. When we used to promote Scott & Bailey, series one and two, people were saying, “So, this is about two female detectives?” You would never say, “Ah, so this is about two male detectives?” It’s outrageous that people said that six years ago. But not one person ever said to me about Doctor Foster, “So, this is about a female doctor?”

Season two of Doctor Foster begins this Tuesday 5th September on BBC One

Nicole Roberts Jones on ‘Finding Your Fierce’

Nicole Roberts Jones is on a mission to bring out the best in each woman. The founder and CEO of FIERCE Factor Lab and author of a new book, Find Your Fierce, made it her life’s work to help women turn their passion and purpose into something profitable—what she calls being able to “bankroll your brilliance.”

From entrepreneurs and corporate executives to those stepping into a career change or at a crossroads, Roberts Jones has worked with a range of women across the country, helping them to tap into their power and step into their true purpose. Her new book aims to reach more women and allow them to zone in on their unique gift.

The former entertainment industry executive is no stranger to seeking out and finding that magic and spark. As a talent management and casting executive in Hollywood for many years, Roberts Jones cultivated her natural knack for spotting what makes someone stand out. But she said that although she was living the dream, it wasn’t her dream. She felt like something was missing and that her work wasn’t fulfilling her authentically.

After that realization, it took her three years to implement her exit strategy, answer her soul’s call, and unlock her own version of fierceness. Now she finds fulfillment by helping other women take their brilliance all the way to the bank through her FIERCE Formula, a concept inspired by Beyoncé’s alter ego on stage, Sasha Fierce.

“When [Beyoncé] stands on stage, she is standing in the full power of her gift, being the woman she is meant to be, doing it unapologetically,” says Robert Jones. “This is what I want for every woman I have the opportunity to work with—that you stand fully in the power of your gift. And your gift may not be on the stage, it might be in the boardroom or it could be in the classroom or in the boutique. Whatever it is for you, my goal is that every woman finds her fierce.”

Nicole Roberts Jones, founder and CEO of FIERCE Factor Lab (Image: nicolerobertsjones.com)

 

At a recent event in New York City celebrating the release of her new book, Black Enterprise caught up with this power woman and gained some tips on how to maximize passion and purpose for profit, and how to implement her Find Your Fierce formula in order to activate the highest version of yourself.

Narrow in on What You Absolutely Love

 

“What do you love? That’s passion,” she told an audience of women at her meet and greet. “What are you great at? That’s proficiency. What problem does it solve? Because there are people that need that gift whether you’re working at a corporate job or have your own business.”

Define What “Finding Your Fierce” Means

 

“Finding your Fierce is really a journey to living as the highest and best version of who you were created to be,” she writes in her book. “To live in your Fierce is to live out the gift inside of you boldly. It is to stand in your complete power.”

Take Inventory

 

This tip comes straight from her book:

“Just like any store does any time a season is changing, they take inventory. They look at what they already have in stock: what they want to keep and what they want to get rid of. Explore what could hinder your progress from being the highest and best version of you and see what you need to keep and what must go.”

Take Your Talents into the Online Space

 

Whether you’re a chef, lawyer, teacher or beautician, the online space is a realm that Roberts Jones says can make you money off of your talents “while you sleep.”

She recalled a client who who worked as a chef complaining of not having enough time to demonstrate how to cook to everyone who approached her. Roberts Jones suggested that she start an online cooking class. She noted that the classes can be held via Facebook Live or a YouTube channel but that they don’t have to be live at all times. She suggested that the chef record it live the first time, then after that, tape her shows.

Another client who was a family practice lawyer was stretched thin because she couldn’t take any more clients, added to the fact that some prospective clients couldn’t afford her advice. Roberts Jones found out that most people approached her for help with divorce and suggested she create a low-cost online divorce program that enabled folks to get through the basic paperwork process.

“Figure out what it is that people come to you for. You have to be able to look at how you package your talents and put it into a way where you don’t have to be present,” she says. “In order be able to maximize your skills you should at least be able to look at what’s realistic for you.”

Don’t Be the Milli Vanilli of Entrepreneurship

 

“Don’t be so busy copying other people,” she says. “You might copy someone, it works, you get all excited but then it doesn’t work the second time. Focus on your gift and how to profit from your own gift.”

Establish Some Non-Negotiables

 

Whether it be professionally or personally, Roberts Jones says that establishing non-negotiables is a must. It can be as simple as carving out a set amount of time each night or each week for something that is important to your well-being and happiness, to defining clear boundaries on what you want in your career.

Her non-negotiables? She wants her work to be serious and fun. She wants her clients to feel like there is a natural bond between them, and she always wants her clients to feel like their human dignity is always being honored.

Here is one absolute non-negotiable worth establishing: Know what you want and know what you need.

“You have to stop and ask yourself what you want. When I was in entertainment, I never stopped to ask myself that. When I was feeling out of sorts it was because I never asked,” she says. “Many people I coach get to this high place but they hate it, and then they feel guilty for wanting more because the world says “you should be happy, how dare you ask for more.” That’s why knowing what you want and knowing what you need is a non-negotiable.”

Quincy Jones Wins $9.42M in Lawsuit Against Michael Jackson’s Estate

Legendary music producer Quincy Jones was awarded $ 9.42 million in damages on Wednesday in a legal dispute with Michael Jackson’s estate over unpaid royalties.

Jones, who worked with Jackson to co-produce his albums Off the Wall, Thriller, and Bad, originally filed a lawsuit in 2013 against MJJ Productions, which is controlled by Jackson’s estate. The suit claimed that Jones was owed $ 30 million in royalties for the use of Jackson’s music in the posthumous film This Is It and two Cirque du Soleil shows. According to Jones, the estate cut him out of the deals that were made to feature Jackson’s music following his sudden death in June 2009. The estate, on the other hand, argued that Jones was due $ 392,000, which occurred from accounting errors, reports The New York Times. They also pointed out that Jones generated $ 8 million in royalties until 2011.

After a two-week trial in Los Angeles Superior Court, the jury awarded the 84-year-old veteran producer less than one-third of his initial ask.

“Although this judgement is not the full amount that I was seeking, I am very grateful that the jury decided in our favor in this matter,” Jones said in a statement, according to Variety. “I view it not only as a victory for myself personally, but for artists’ rights overall.”

He added, “This lawsuit was never about Michael, it was about protecting the integrity of the work we all did in the recording studio and the legacy of what we created.”

Jackson’s estate attorneys, Howard Weitzman and Zia Modabber, released a statement condemning the decision. “While the jury denied Quincy Jones $ 21 million—or more than two-thirds of what he demanded—from the estate of Michael Jackson, we still believe that giving him millions of dollars that he has no right to receive under his contracts is wrong.”

They added, “Although Mr. Jones is portraying this as a victory for artists’ rights, the real artist is Michael Jackson and it is his money Mr. Jones is seeking.”

Sandy Hook Mom Criticizes Megyn Kelly for Alex Jones Interview: ‘A Mistake and a Bad Judgement Call’

A mom whose first-grade son was murdered in 2012’s Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting now finds herself fighting a national news network — and asking for her voice to be heard.

Earlier Tuesday, Nicole Hockley, the co-founder and co managing director of Sandy Hook Promise, an anti-gun violence advocacy organization, wrote a letter to NBC chairman Andy Lack asking them to pull the Megyn Kelly’s controversial interview with Alex Jones.

Jones, the host of Infowars, has spread the falsehood that the shooting that killed 20 children and six adults — including Hockley’s 6-year-old son, Dylan Hockley — was a hoax. The interview is scheduled for Sunday, which is Father’s Day. 

“We want to put the pressure on NBC — first of all we don’t support anyone who gives platforms to conspiracy theorists,” Hockley tells PEOPLE. “But more importantly than that, even just the last 24 hours has given Jones significant publicity and further action to reach those who support him and the ability to generate more followers.”

Hockley only found out about Kelly’s interview Monday morning. 

“I’m trying to understand intentions behind the piece and what she wanted to achieve,” says Hockley. “I haven’t seen the piece so I have to reserve judgment on that. She is a good person; I have to believe her intentions are well-meaning. But I think she and NBC are missing the bigger picture here in what giving a voice to this sort of man can do in terms of damaging people and families. That’s why I’m asking them to stop the broadcast.”

Hockley says Kelly “explained that as a journalist, she felt it was important because he’d been elevated by others in the country without any credibility. She’s trying to expose him for what he is and ensure that people question why someone like this would be elevated to such a position and given credibility when he has nothing credible to say.”

But while she understands the intent, Hockley says she opposes “anyone who gives a platform or voice to conspiracy theorists. It’s just not something Sandy Hook Promise believes in because we know that as soon as you make it about the conspiracy theorist, it supports them and it impacts families, people who have been impacted by tragedy — including ourselves.”

Hockley says Kelly and NBC are “missing the bigger picture here in terms of trying to expose the issue and someone who’s been given credentials at the White House and support at the highest level—that might be what they’re trying to do, but the impact of those actions are going to be felt by families.”

Still, she says, “I truly do not think that Megyn or NBC are trying to harm families,” adding that Kelly “has been supportive and compassionate in the past.”

“I think this is a mistake and a bad judgement call,” she adds. “We all make mistakes sometimes, so I would much rather see NBC and Megyn admit that this was a poor judgment call to interview Alex Jones, and to rectify this situation by pulling the interview and not giving this issue anymore publicity.”

‘It Makes What’s Already Unbearable that Much Worse’

Hockley says Kelly “believes in what she’s doing as a journalist. On this, we just have to respectfully disagree with each other.” 

Kelly has interviewed Hockley and other families from Sandy Hook in the past.

“We’ve always found her to be a very compassionate interviewer, she’s a mom,” Hockley stresses. “She truly feels how awful this tragedy was and wants to do something to help it.” 

When Hockley asked Kelly to host the organization’s annual gala, scheduled for Wednesday in Washington, D.C., Kelly immediately said yes. But the organization has since rescinded its invitation to host.

“Yesterday came as a complete surprise … because we weren’t able to reach an agreement in terms of anything changing, I had to ask her to step down as host,” Hockley says.

Kelly, she says, “was apologetic that she’s causing any distraction toward our event because she’s very supportive of what we do. But she has to maintain her journalistic integrity. I can appreciate everything she’s saying to me, it’s just the bigger picture here I don’t think is being understood or addressed correctly.”

Hockley says that “as soon as you engage and give voice to these people, they come out louder than before.”

She adds, “I’ve blocked more people than I’ve followed on Twitter, and I’ll continue to block anyone who attempts to harass me online or through the mail or to my house. Some of these people are cowards who hide behind their anonymous avatars, and some of them unfortunately have become quite dangerous.”

“That’s what concerns me,” she continues. “If people could even try to imagine losing a child or someone you love — and act like what happened at Sandy Hook school didn’t happen—and then to be forced to have to get this continual harassment from people who say your child never even lived or your child never died or you’re just an actress, and just to ignore the pain and create more layers of pain and anguish on top—no one would ever expect this to happen. It makes what’s already unbearable that much worse.”

“You don’t feed the beast. Just ignore it. They’re seeking publicity, notoriety and what they regard as fame. I categorize Alex Jones in this. Just don’t give them anything. If they don’t have anything to fuel the fire, they’ll eventually burn out. That’s what I’m hoping. 

Petition: ‘It’s Cruel and Dangerous to Give Him a Platform’

Sandy Hook Promise launched an online petition Tuesday urging NBC not to air Kelly’s interview.

“I’m a Sandy Hook Promise supporter, and I do not want to see Alex Jones lie about tragedies on national television,” the petition begins.

It adds, “It’s cruel and dangerous to give him a platform. We should be talking about solutions to gun violence instead of enriching those who lie about it and its victims. Please do not air this interview.”

Bobby Flay Cheated With January Jones, Claims Estranged Wife In Court Docs

Bobby Flay and Stephanie March’s divorce is not what you’d call amicable.

The couple split in early April after 10 years of marriage and March is challenging the prenup under which Flay is required to pay the actress $ 5,000 a month.

In Touch reports that March is challenging the prenup on the grounds that Flay allegedly cheated on her with three women, including actress January Jones.

A source familiar with the case told the magazine that the former “Law & Order: SVU” actress is claiming in court papers that the 50-year-old celebrity chef “committed adultery” with Jones several times in the in early 2010. The magazine also reports that March has accused Flay of cheating with a food stylist and his assistant.

Page Six previously reported that it’s believed the couple’s prenup had no infidelity clause, and if true, March’s claims likely would not help her cause. However, TMZ reported that the actress also filed documents claiming that it’s her “amazing palate” that is responsible for his success.

Reps for Flay and Jones have yet to respond to requests for comment.
