Why Nebula Should Kill Thanos in ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

The Avengers movies — and the many MCU flicks before them — have been building up to a battle royale with super-villain Thanos. And as ‘Earth’s Mightiest Heroes’ are likely to be hit by casualties, but unlikely to lose, the smart money is on them defeating the big bad. Either in Avengers: Infinity War, or its as-yet-untitled sequel. But who will be the hero who takes the life of the ‘Mad Titan’? We believe there’s only one candidate… and her name is Nebula.

Nebula’s Torturous Childhood

Nebula is an orphan who had the misfortune of being adopted by Thanos. Alongside Gamora. The pair were trained as warriors, loyal to their despotic father. Who had a pretty twisted way of schooling them.

“My father would have Gamora and me battle one another in training,” Nebula explains during Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. “Every time my sister prevailed my father would replace a piece of me with machinery, claiming he wanted me to be her equal. But she won. Again, and again, and again.”

The bionic upgrades gave her super-strength, speed and agility, turning Nebula into the fiercest of fighters. But those many agonising operations also effectively meant she spent most of her childhood being tortured by her father. Which takes its toll on her psyche.

Ronan (Lee Pace) and Nebula (Karen Gillan).

Thanos gifts Nebula to Ronan the Accuser to help retrieve the Orb he so coveted. Which she did with little hesitation, torturing Nova Guards, killing scores of prisoners, destroying Gamora’s ship, and leaving her sister for dead.

But while she appeared to do this out of loyalty to Thanos, it soon became clear that Nebula had an ulterior motive. Because as soon as Ronan mainlined the power of the Orb, and revealed that he planned to destroy her despotic Dad, she immediately switched allegiance. Vowing to help him kill Thanos, followed by a thousand planets.

At the end of Guardians of the Galaxy Ronan’s plan fails and he’s the one who gets killed. Via the power of dance. But Nebula survives, flying away on a Ravager M-Ship, her intentions towards her adopted father now very much clear.

Nebula resents her sister Gamora, because she was the Mad Titan’s favourite, and because, as she puts it, “You were the one who wanted to win, and I just wanted a sister. You were all I had, but you were the one who needed to win. Thanos pulled my eye from my head, and my brain from my skull, and my arm from my body… because of you.”

In Nebula’s mind, this makes them mortal enemies, and when she is captured by the Guardians of the Galaxy at the start of Vol. 2, that hatred burns bright, the sisters verbally sparring and very nearly coming to blows.

When Nebula escapes their clutches, she tells Kraglin of her plan to kill Gamora. Then adds that she would use the bounty  placed on the rest of the Guardians to kill Thanos. Her objective becoming ever more pronounced.

As the film progresses, Nebula and Gamora are forced to form an uneasy alliance, and slowly start to bond. With Nebula even saving her sister’s life. But when Gamora says, “I was a little girl, trying to live day-by-day, not knowing or understanding what that meant to you. There are many other girls out there, like us. You can stay with us, and help them,” Nebula’s response is simple and unwavering. “I can help them. By killing Thanos.”

Why Nebula Should be the One to Kill Thanos


Nebula Marvel
Surely it has to be Nebula!

While there are a few candidates, in FANDOM’s opinion, Nebula must be the one to kill the big bad. She has that horrible history with Thanos, which gives her the ideal motive. She is also a villain who has turned into a hero over the two Guardians of the Galaxy movies. So destroying the Titan who destroyed both her body and spirit would give Nebula a satisfying story arc.

Of course, there are more decent and heroic figures in Infinity War. If the trailers are anything to go by, the likes of Captain America, Vision, Thor, and Scarlet Witch will all have their reasons for wanting to take Thanos out.

Equally, it might be a team effort, with the Infinity War requiring the might of the Avengers and their many super-friends and sidekicks working together to finally bring him down.

But the most satisfying conclusion — be it in this movie, or the next — will be for Nebula to deliver that final blow. Giving closure to her tragic tale, and earning Nebula redemption as she finally puts Thanos to the sword.

Harper Lee’s Estate Sues Over the Broadway Version of ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’

(BIRMINGHAM, Ala.) — The estate of “To Kill a Mockingbird” author Harper Lee has filed suit over an upcoming Broadway adaptation of the novel, arguing that screenwriter Aaron Sorkin’s script wrongly alters Atticus Finch and other characters from the book.

The suit, which includes a copy of a contract signed by Lee and dated about eight months before her death in February 2016, contends Sorkin’s script violates the agreement by portraying Finch, the noble attorney who represents a black man wrongly accused of rape in “Mockingbird,” as someone else in the play.

Filed against the theater company of New York producer Scott Rudin, the complaint cites an interview with the online publication Vulture in which Sorkin was quoted as saying the small-town lawyer would evolve from a racist apologist at the start of the show to become “Atticus Finch by the end of the play.”

Such a change during a play could fit with the character evolution shown between the Pulitzer Prize-winning “Mockingbird” and Lee’s first draft of the novel, finally released in 2015 as “Go Set a Watchman.”

But the lawsuit contends the script would violate the contact by changing Finch and other characters and adding still more people who aren’t in the novel. It asks a judge to enforce a section of the agreement that states the play won’t “depart in any manner from the spirit of the Novel nor alter its characters.”

A firm that represents Rudin’s company, Rudinplay Inc., said Sorkin’s script “is a faithful adaptation of a singular novel which has been crafted well within the constraints of the signed agreement” between the producers and Lee.

The statement also took a jab at the “history of litigious behavior” of Lee’s estate, overseen by attorney Tonja Carter of Lee’s south Alabama hometown of Monroeville.

“This is, unfortunately, simply another such lawsuit, the latest of many, and we believe that it is without merit,” said the statement. “While we hope this gets resolved, if it does not, the suit will be vigorously defended.”

The play is scheduled to open in New York in December.

The suit names as its plaintiff Carter, who represented Lee during the final years of the author’s life. Carter handled Lee’s will and is listed in the lawsuit as the personal representative of Lee’s estate.

Rudinplay paid Lee $ 100,000 after she approved Sorkin as the screenwriter in November 2015, the suit said. Carter first saw a draft of the play in September, according to the lawsuit, and she later spoke with Rudin by phone to express numerous concerns about Sorkin’s script.

“Mr. Rudin assured Ms. Carter that he wanted to do the Play right and that he would make sure that the Estate would be satisfied with the final product,” the suit said.

The two talked again in February about the script, suit said, adding: “At times, the conversation was heated.” Carter sued after Rudin’s attorney wrote earlier this month saying extensive changes to the script weren’t possible, the suit said.

Sorkin has won multiple Emmys for his work on the drama series “The West Wing,” and he won an Academy Award for his screenplay of “The Social Network” in 2011.

Rudin’s credits include “Lady Bird,” which was nominated for an Academy Award as best motion picture this year, and “Fences,” which was a 2017 nominee. He won a best picture Oscar for “No Country for Old Men” in 2008.

In Syria, the New Offensive by Assad and the Russians Might Kill the Revolution, But It Will Be the Peace of the Dead

BEIRUT—The words “de-escalation zone” appear not to mean quite the same thing in Russian as they do in English.

That, at least, is a conclusion one might draw looking at the present scene in Syria’s East Ghouta, where the Russian air force has assisted its Syrian client regime in an enormous escalation of what was already an extremely high level of violence in the district on the eastern fringe of Damascus that has been under choking siege for five years, and was also the site of the infamous August 2013 Sarin gas attack that killed over 1,000 in a single morning.

The numbers speak for themselves: more than 250 people were killed by Syrian and Russian air bombardment, and over 1,000 wounded, on Monday and Tuesday alone, according to the Associated Press. At least four field hospitals have been rendered inoperative by apparently deliberate targeting, according to the Syrian American Medical Society, a relief organization with medical staff currently on the ground in Ghouta.

Children Who Kill was ‘toughest challenge’ of Susanna Reid’s career

SHE tackles breaking news, grills slippery politicians and talks to victims of tragedies as a presenter on Good Morning Britain.

But SUSANNA REID says filming for her latest ­documentary, Children Who Kill, has been the ­toughest challenge of her career.

Suysanna Reid sat down to interview American murderer Joshua Phillips who killed his eight-year-old neighbour aged just 14

In particular, Susanna dubbed her interview with American murderer Joshua Phillips “extremely distressing” — as she was forced to delve into how, aged 14, he killed his eight-year-old neighbour Maddie Clifton and hid her body under his bed for six days.

In an exclusive interview, Susanna said: “I have never been as ­distressed as I was filming that documentary.

“I’ve been affected by all the documentaries I’ve done but the thing about this is the child who was murdered was so young. I was in tears doing the interviews — and I found everything about meeting Phillips upsetting, distressing and heart-breaking.”

And Susanna even admitted that she had to have a break to clear her mind after filming the show, which airs tomorrow on ITV at 9pm.

She added: “I did find myself with a kind of emotional cloud a lot of the time.

“It took quite a long time after I got back from the States to clear my mind — the first thing I did was hug my kids a little tighter.”

However, this is not the only tough subject Susanna is tackling for ITV as part of its Crime And Punishment series as she will present a hard-hitting ­documentary on taxi cab rapist John Worboys later this month.

And Susanna lashed out at the authorities for putting forward the sex attacker for release after only a decade behind bars. He is thought to have assaulted more than 100 women.

“These women have been let down at every stage of the legal process.”

Utah Man in Doomsday Sect Had Plans to Kill His ‘Possessed’ Son: Investigators

According to newly unsealed affidavits, the two Utah men accused of marrying each other’s underage daughters allegedly believed that the end of the world was nigh, and hatched plans to kidnap more children before an “anticipated Muslim invasion of the United States.”

The affidavits, obtained by PEOPLE, further allege that one of the men — John Coltharp — was intending to kill his son, William, insisting the child was “possessed by an evil spirit.”

The court documents contend Coltharp thought that by killing him, “his son would then teach his mother the gospel in the spirit world.”

Coltharp, 33, and Samuel Shaffer, 34, have both been charged with kidnapping, sexual abuse, and child bigamy. In addition, Coltharp faces charges of sodomy of a child for a sexual assault stemming from an alleged incident on Aug. 1, 2017.

Police believe the two men were members of a doomsday cult, called the Knights of the Crystal Blade, which identifies as a fundamentalist offshoot of the Mormon church. Both also allegedly believed they were “prophets,” according to investigators.

Shaffer allegedly told detectives he was married to Coltharp’s 8-year-old daughter, and that Coltharp was married to Shaffer’s 7-year-old daughter, the court records show.

Police began investigating on Dec. 1 after Coltharp’s ex-wife called police to report that Coltharp had allegedly kidnapped their four children. Coltharp was arrested at his home, but his children were not with him.

On Dec. 4, 2017, police raided a compound in a remote area about one mile west of Lund, where members of the sect were living inside shipping containers. There, they found Coltharp’s parents and his two sons. Police learned that Shaffer was allegedly last seen with his two daughters, ages seven and five, and Coltharp’s two daughters.

He had spent the previous night with the four girls in a tent near the compound, the release states.

Shortly after an AMBER Alert was issued for Coltharp’s two daughters, a tipster called police reporting they saw a white male later identified as Shaffer walking alone on a dirt road several miles west of the compound.

Shaffer, who investigators contend is the cult’s leader, was taken into custody and told police where they could find two of the girls. Deputies discovered one of Shaffer’s daughters and one of Coltharp’s daughters inside two blue plastic 50 gallon water barrels located approximately 1,000 yards south of the Coltharp property.

• For more compelling true crime coverage, follow our Crime magazine on Flipboard.

Shaffer allegedly told police the two girls had been placed in the water barrels to hide them from law enforcement. Police alleged the two girls had spent approximately 24 hours inside the barrel in subfreezing temperatures.

Prosecutors tell PEOPLE Shaffer’s father, James, has agreed to cooperate with the prosecution, and will testify against Samuel at his upcoming trial.

James Shaffer was recently arrested and charged with obstructing justice for allegedly hiding Coltharp’s children in his home and lying to police about it. Coltharp’s parents are also expected to serve as state witnesses. He has yet to enter a plea and it was unclear who his lawyer might be.

The affidavit states that the FBI is still processing the suspect’s electronics, and that someone who associated with John Coltharp claims he keeps meticulous records on his computer.

According to the affidavits, Coltharp allegedly told the witness that if authorities ever found the files on his computer, he would be “fried.”

Neither suspect has entered not guilty pleas. Their lawyers could not be reached for comment.

How to Capture (Not Kill) in ‘Monster Hunter World’

Monster Hunter World is about hunting monsters. While most people interpret that as “kill” monsters, a hunting quest will also accept capturing them alive. In fact, some quests require it.

At first, you might see capturing as harder that killing. The conditions have to be just right. But in some fights, the ability to capture can be a godsend. If you’ve already fainted twice and you’re out of items, going the full ten rounds might be less appealing. Better to capture and be done with it.

‘Monster Hunter World’ Monsters: A Guide to the Biggest and Baddest

Capturing monsters alive lets the Commission do more useful research on it, and you’ll be better rewarded. However, you’ll have to go without carving bonuses. If you need something in the “rewards” category from a monster and can do without the “carves,” then capturing is the way to go.

Traps and Tranqs

Here’s what you’ll need to trap monsters.

  1. Either a shock trap or pitfall trap. Shock Traps are made with Trap Tools and Thunderbugs. Pitfall Traps are made with Trap Tools and Nets — which themselves are made out of Spider Webs and Ivy.
  2. Some kind of tranquiliser. This can be done with tranq bombs, or with some kind of tranq ammo. You can make tranq bombs out of Sleep Herbs and Parashrooms.

You may have noticed the traps require Trap Tools, which you don’t have access to in your inventory unless you’ve done the first capture quest. This isn’t made very clear in Monster Hunter World. After you start the quest to capture a Kulu-Ya-Ku, there will be two Trap Tools in your supply box. Use these for crafting later, and the shock trap for the mission at hand.

If for some reason you get in a tight spot and can’t craft any of these items, there’s a merchant in the research station of the 3rd Fleet that can sell them to you. Later, the Elder Melder can make them for you.

Becoming the Trap Master

There’s a one-two combo of Traps and Tranqs you’ll need to master, but first the monster needs to be weak.

We go through a few different signs that the monster is weak in the video, but these are less reliable. I’ve had a monster limping, drooling, flatlining with skulls coming from it on the minimap, and still it refused to be trapped.

The most sure-fire way is to make sure the monster has gone to sleep in its nest. This has the added benefit of it being nice and still for you to place the trap under.


Barroth capture trap Monster Hunter World
Barroth no likey electricity

Make sure the trap and Tranq Bombs are ready in your item wheel, because you don’t want to be fiddling around in the small window to tranquilise it. Place the trap under it, then hit it with some Tranq Bombs close to its head. Usually two is enough.

You’ll only have around twenty seconds before the mission ends after that, so keep that in mind if there was anything you wanted to loot or mine in the area. Monster Hunter World assumes you’ll want to go straight back, since there’s no carving to be done.

Hopefully that helps you get your first capture. Happy hunting!

Anti-Smoking Plan May Kill Cigarettes & Save Big Tobacco

WASHINGTON (AP) — Imagine if cigarettes were no longer addictive and smoking itself became almost obsolete; only a tiny segment of Americans still lit up. That’s the goal of an unprecedented anti-smoking plan being carefully fashioned by U.S. health officials.

But the proposal from the Food and Drug Administration could have another unexpected effect: opening the door for companies to sell a new generation of alternative tobacco products, allowing the industry to survive — even thrive — for generations to come.

The plan puts the FDA at the center of a long-standing debate over so-called “reduced-risk” products, such as e-cigarettes, and whether they should have a role in anti-smoking efforts, which have long focused exclusively on getting smokers to quit.

“This is the single most controversial — and frankly, divisive — issue I’ve seen in my 40 years studying tobacco control policy,” said Kenneth Warner, professor emeritus at University of Michigan’s school of public health.

The FDA plan is two-fold: drastically cut nicotine levels in cigarettes so that they are essentially non-addictive. For those who can’t or won’t quit, allow lower-risk products that deliver nicotine without the deadly effects of traditional cigarettes.

This month the government effort is poised to take off. The FDA is expected to soon begin what will likely be a years-long process to control nicotine in cigarettes. And next week, the agency will hold a public meeting on a closely watched cigarette alternative from Philip Morris International, which, if granted FDA clearance, could launch as early as February.

The product, called iQOS (pronounced EYE-kose), is a penlike device that heats Marlboro-branded tobacco but stops short of burning it, an approach that Philip Morris says reduces exposure to tar and other toxic byproducts of burning cigarettes. This is different from e-cigarettes, which don’t use tobacco at all but instead vaporize liquid usually containing nicotine.

For anti-smoking activists these new products may mean surrendering hopes of a knockout blow to the industry. They say there is no safe tobacco product and the focus should be on getting people to quit. But others are more open to the idea of alternatives to get people away from cigarettes, the deadliest form of tobacco.

Tobacco companies have made claims about “safer” cigarettes since the 1950s, all later proven false. In some cases the introduction of these products, such as filtered and “low tar” cigarettes, propped up cigarette sales and kept millions of Americans smoking. Although the adult smoking rate has fallen to an all-time low of 15 percent, smoking remains the nation’s leading preventable cause of death and illness, responsible for about one in five U.S. deaths.

Anti-smoking groups also point to Big Tobacco’s history of manipulating public opinion and government efforts against smoking: In 2006, a federal judge ruled that Big Tobacco had lied and deceived the American public about the effects of smoking for more than 50 years. The industry defeated a 2010 proposal by the FDA to add graphic warning labels to cigarette packs. And FDA scrutiny of menthol-flavored cigarettes — used disproportionately by young people and minorities — has been bogged down since 2011, due to legal challenges.

“We’re not talking about an industry that is legitimately interested in saving lives here,” said Erika Sward of the American Lung Association.

But some industry observers say this time will be different.

“The environment has changed, the technology has changed, the companies have changed — that is the reality,” said Scott Ballin, a health policy consultant who previously worked for the American Heart Association.

Under a 2009 law, the FDA gained authority to regulate certain parts of the tobacco industry, including nicotine in cigarettes, though it cannot remove the ingredient completely. The same law allows the agency to scientifically review and permit sales of new tobacco products, including e-cigarettes. Little has happened so far. Last year, the agency said it would delay the deadline for manufacturers to submit their vapor-emitting products for review until 2022.

The FDA says it wants to continue to help people quit by supporting a variety of approaches, including new quit-smoking aids and opening opportunities for a variety of companies, including drugmakers, to help attack the problem. As part of this, the FDA sees an important role for alternative products — but in a world where cigarettes contain such a small amount of nicotine that they become unappealing even to lifelong smokers.

“We still have to provide an opportunity for adults who want to get access to satisfying levels of nicotine,” but without the hazards of burning tobacco, said FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb. He estimates the FDA plan could eventually prevent 8 million smoking-related deaths.

“SMOKE-FREE FUTURE”

Philip Morris International and its U.S. partner Altria will try to navigate the first steps of the new regulatory path next week.

At a two-day meeting before the FDA, company scientists will try and convince government experts that iQOS is less-harmful than cigarettes. If successful, iQOS could be advertised by Altria to U.S. consumers as a “reduced-risk” tobacco product, the first ever sanctioned by the FDA.

Because iQOS works with real tobacco the company believes it will be more effective than e-cigarettes in getting smokers to switch.

Philip Morris already sells the product in about 30 countries, including Canada, Japan and the United Kingdom.
iQOS is part of an elaborate corporate makeover for Philip Morris, which last year rebranded its website with the slogan: “Designing a smoke-free future.” The cigarette giant says it has invested over $ 3 billion in iQOS and eventually plans to stop selling cigarettes worldwide — though it resists setting a deadline.

Philip Morris executives say they are offering millions of smokers a better, less-harmful product.

Matthew Myers of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids still sees danger. He says FDA must strictly limit marketing of products like iQOS to adult smokers who are unable or unwilling to quit. Otherwise they may be used in combination with cigarettes or even picked up by nonsmokers or young people who might see the new devices as harmless enough to try.

“As a growing percentage of the world makes the decision that smoking is too dangerous and too risky, iQOS provides an alternative to quitting that keeps them in the market,” Myers says.

It’s unclear whether existing alternatives to cigarettes help smokers quit, a claim often made by e-cigarette supporters. Research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests about 60 percent of adult e-cigarette users also smoke regular cigarettes.

THE CASE FOR LOWER NICOTINE

Experts who study nicotine addiction say the FDA plan is grounded in the latest science.

Several recent studies have shown that when smokers switch to very low-nicotine cigarettes they smoke less and are more likely to try quitting. But they also seek nicotine from other sources, underscoring the need for alternatives. Without new options, smokers would likely seek regular-strength cigarettes on the black market.

Crucial to the FDA proposal is a simple fact: nicotine is highly addictive, but not deadly. It’s the burning tobacco and other substances inhaled through smoking that cause cancer, heart disease and bronchitis.

“It’s hard to imagine that using nicotine and tobacco in a way that isn’t burned, in a non-combustible form, isn’t going to be much safer,” said Eric Donny, an addiction researcher at the University of Pittsburgh.

A study of 800 smokers by Donny and other researchers showed that when nicotine was limited to less than 1 milligram per gram of tobacco, users smoked fewer cigarettes. The study, funded by the FDA, was pivotal to showing that smokers won’t compensate by smoking more if nicotine intake is reduced enough. That was the case with “light” and “low-tar” cigarettes introduced in the 1960s and 1970s, when some smokers actually began smoking more cigarettes per day.

Still, many in the anti-smoking community say larger, longer studies are needed to predict how low-nicotine cigarettes would work in the real world.

LEGAL RISKS

Key to the FDA plan is the assumption that the two actions will happen at the same time: as regulators cut nicotine in conventional cigarettes, manufacturers will provide alternative products.

But that presumes that tobacco companies will willingly part with their flagship product, which remains enormously profitable.
Kenneth Warner, the public policy professor, said he would be “astonished” if industry cooperates on reducing nicotine levels.

“I don’t think they will. I think they will bring out all of their political guns against it and I’m quite certain they will sue to prevent it,” he said.

In that scenario, the FDA plan to make cigarettes less addictive could be stalled in court for years while companies begin launching FDA-sanctioned alternative products. Tobacco critics say that scenario would be the most profitable for industry.

“It’s like Coke, you can have regular Coke, Diet Coke, Coke Zero, we’ll sell you any Coke you like,” said Robin Koval, president of the Truth Initiative, which runs educational anti-tobacco campaigns.

But the FDA’s Gottlieb says the two parts of the plan must go together. “I’m not going to advance this in a piecemeal fashion,” he said.

When pressed about whether industry will sue FDA over mandatory nicotine reductions, tobacco executives for Altria and other companies instead emphasized the long, complicated nature of the regulatory process.

“I’m not going to speculate about what may happen at the end of a multiyear process,” said Jose Murillo, an Altria vice president. “It will be science and evidence-based and we will be engaged at every step of the way.”

Kenya Moore’s Ex-Boyfriend Allegedly Tried To Kill Her

Sunday night’s episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” saw the ladies come together to share their respective experiences with domestic violence.

Kenya Moore tackled the role of producer for a PSA to spread awareness about the widespread issue.

“I decided to produce a PSA on domestic violence to help spread the word on this important issue,” she said during the episode, according to People. “When it comes to domestic violence, you don’t have to look very far to find someone who has been adversely affected by it.”

She kicked off the conversation by recalling the time a violent ex-boyfriend tried to kill her when she was a teenager.

“When I was 16 years old, I dated someone who was 11 years my senior,” she said. “It turned out to be a very physically abusive relationship to the point where I was stabbed, nearly killing me.”

She explained that she still deals with the trauma from that relationship, to this very day.

“Knowing that this day and age — 20, 30 years later — it’s still occurring,” she said. “I really wanted to do something about it.”

NeNe Leakes also shared her experience. “I was abused very young,” she said. “I was dating a guy that was the first guy that ever said I love you. And I took when he said ‘I love you’ to heart. Like, ‘This is love!’ And even when he hit me, I thought, ‘This is love.’ ”

“I stayed in that abusive relationship for really a long time,” Leakes continued. “I ended up having a child from that relationship. And eventually, I was able to get out.”

Shamea Morton and Cynthia’s Bailey’s mom Barbara Morris also gave testimonials.

“His hand went across my face so hard,” Morton alleged, adding that her ex-was jealous and had accused her of cheating on him. “The one pair of fancy shoes that I finally got from him, he knocked me right out of them. My shoes were over here and I was on the ground over there.”

Bailey revealed that she was very young when her mother was going through this.

“Though I was very young when all this was going on, I know that my dad was physically and verbally abusive towards my mom,” Bailey said. “I am proud of my mom because I know this is hard for her to talk about. She grew up in a generation where you just didn’t talk about that stuff. And I know this is a huge opportunity for her to heal from the situation and really really have some closure.”

Moore, Bailey, Kandi Burruss, Sheree Whitfield and NeNe Leakes came together at the end of the PSA to tell viewers, “There is no excuse for abuse.”

Eastenders Christmas spoilers: Max Branning plots to KILL Ian Beale and Phil Mitchell after his revenge plan goes wrong

MAX Branning isn’t done exacting his revenge on the residents of the Walford.

After his dealings with property developer Willmott-Brown are exposed, leading him to fall out with his family, Max decides he has nothing left to lose – so he comes to the conclusion that murder is the only option.

After his daughters disown him, Max decides he has nothing left to lose.
BBC DAN GOLDSMITH

Actor Jake Wood, who plays Max, has revealed the scenes will be particularly highly charged, in part thanks to the return of writer Simon Ashdown.

He told Inside Soap: “The build-up to Christmas is some of the most action-packed stuff I’ve ever seen.

“In terms of what I’ve read, these are maybe the best scripts since the Max and Stacey DVD reveal in 2007.”

Max is left a broken man when his daughters Lauren and Abi tell him they want nothing more to do with him.

Stacey takes pity on Max
BBC


He then identifies Phil Mitchell and Ian Beale as the people who have wronged him the most – and decides they need to be dealt with.

Jake added: “Max’s revenge was supposed to be a joyous moment for him – but he’s been cut loose by his co-conspirators, and slipped into a traumatic mental state.

“He has a lot of anger towards people, and doesn’t know how to go about dealing with it.”

Stacey takes pity on Max and invites him to live with her and husband Martin.

Will Max have gone to far by the time Stacey steps in?
BBC

But, at this point, Max has already taken action – and tried to kill Ian.

Jake added: “When Stacey takes Max in, he’s already tried to kill Ian and is on his way to murder Phil!

“I don’t know what the medical definition is, but it feels like he’s having a psychotic episode.”

EastEnders airs Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday nights on BBC One.

‘The Walking Dead’: Will Negan Die and If So, Who Will Kill Him?

SPOILER ALERT: This post contains spoilers from Season 8, Episode 7 of The Walking Dead entitled “Time For After“. Proceed with caution.

The mid-season finale of The Walking Dead Season 8 is imminent, and preview footage suggests that Negan regains the upper hand. But he can’t possibly win out over Rick and the gang, can he? In the comics, we’ve seen that there’s still plenty more to come from Negan. But if we’ve learned anything, it’s that the TV show doesn’t always follow the comics, having diverged from the comic narrative on numerous occasions.

There’s plenty of fans of The Walking Dead that want to see Negan dead, and they’re not alone. So do plenty of the characters in the TV series – and they’re not all on Rick’s side.

So who are the most likely characters to finish off Negan? Let’s take a look…

Rick


Rick Grimes Walking Dead
Rick at his lowest ebb, broken by Negan.

Rick has vowed time and again that he will kill Negan. And it sort of feels like if it’s anyone else that finishes him off, Rick will have been robbed of the chance not only to avenge the deaths of Abraham, and Glenn in particular, but also to repay him for the threats he made against son Carl. Oh, and for forcing him to the point where he was about to cut his own son’s arm off. As viewers, we want Rick to get his very satisfying revenge for all Negan has put him through, including reducing him to a shell of a man after pushing him to breaking point.

However, Rick seems to be softening. In the season premiere, we saw Rick red-eyed and deeply upset – over what we don’t yet know – but he was also muttering about mercy prevailing over wrath. Echoing the words spoken by new character Siddiq, he seems to be re-evaluating, and trying to find an alternative to killing in order to survive. He wants to preserve his humanity, and has already demonstrated he’s against Daryl’s plan to attack the Saviors in a way that results in the death of innocents. This suggests he might yet be lenient when it comes to Negan. If he’s faced with the opportunity to kill a defenceless Negan, right now it feels like Rick might not take it.

Daryl

Daryl has his own personal reasons for wanting revenge against Negan. The ruthless leader of the Saviors imprisoned him and subjected him to torture in an attempt to break him. He had to listen to that earwormy “Easy Street” song on loop for goodness’ sake. Enough to drive anyone to murder? It’s no surprise that Daryl is taking a hard line when it comes to the Saviors right now. He’s lived under Negan’s rule, and knows it ain’t pretty. For Daryl, there is no mercy and if he gets half a chance, he’ll take it.

In a face-off between Negan and a Daryl hellbent on retribution, we don’t fancy Negan’s chances much.

Eugene


The Walking Dead-Eugene-Tanya-Frankie
Eugene is asked to make suicide pills by Tanya and Frankie.

In Episode 7, we were reminded that Eugene was asked by Tanya and Frankie, two of Negan’s wives, to manufacture suicide pills which they planned to use to take Negan out. It would likely have worked, but when Eugene discovered their true intentions he refused to hand them over. He later gave them to Sasha, of course.

But was the reason he wouldn’t hand them over because he was scared? Probably. Eugene has always been a big scaredy cat, afraid to step out of line. Episode 7 spent time focusing on Eugene, and exploring where his head is at right now. The outcome? Yes, he wants to survive and is partially driven by selfish motivations, but he is also keen to save others. We saw him sticking his neck out in order to save people – he was ultimately prepared to risk Dwight shooting him in order to press ahead with his plan to lure the walkers away and save the many. He’s certainly a tortured man, haunted by what happened to Sasha. He’s a man that’s turned to drink in order to quiet his mind and sleep through the night. There’s still a chance that this man in turmoil could do something unpredictable.

If it came to it now, could he end Negan’s life? “I am Negan” may trip off his tongue but if it was for the greater good, could he redeem himself by killing Negan? Quite possibly. He’s definitely braver, more capable, and more confident in his capabilities than he used to be. And maybe he’ll need to sacrifice himself to do it.

Dwight

Dwight has gone from Negan’s right-hand man, and a man we detest, to a sympathetic character prepared to stab his leader in the back. Or head. Ahem.

But will he need to be the one to kill Negan in order to prove once and for all to Rick and co. – Daryl and Tara especially who have very specific reasons to hate and distrust him – that he’s on their side? That he’s not the villain they thought him to be? And if he is, will he have to lose his life in order to get redemption? He did kill Denise after all, and he’s been wearing Daryl’s leather gilet since forever. If those aren’t grounds for dying in order to be redeemed we don’t know what are.

Rosita

Rosita, like Rick, has also sworn to kill Negan. In fact, she tried once and came a cropper. It turns out she’s the unluckiest assassin ever. The bullet, which she had Eugene make for her, was on target – but it rebounded off Lucille. Rosita is still understandably mad at Negan for brutally murdering Abraham, the man she loved, and she has vowed revenge. And though she ruled herself out of Daryl’s reckless plan that flies in the face of Rick’s wishes, she could still prove to be a thorn in Negan’s side when push comes to shove. And she’d probably be willing to sacrifice herself in order to avenge the death of Abraham, right?

Carl

Because of Negan, Carl has almost lost an arm at the hands of his father and almost lost his life too. Were it not for Shiva jumping in at a critical moment, Carl would be dead right now. Not only that, he’s seen his dad driven to breaking point by the cruel dictator, and has even spent time in his company at the Sanctuary – where Negan made fun of his missing eye. Carl has been made to feel small and powerless by Negan, and has more reason than anyone to seek revenge. Having already once gone on a mission to kill Negan, Carl could easily do so again – especially if the people he loves are under real threat.

Catch the midseason finale of Season 8 on December 10 in the US and a day later in the UK.

Trump Decertifies and Threatens to Kill Iran Deal Altogether

President Trump on Friday announced that he will not certify Iran’s compliance with the 2015 nuclear agreement, effectively reversing U.S. policy and bucking Washington’s own allies. “Today I am announcing our strategy along with several major steps we’re taking to confront the Iranian regime’s hostile actions and to ensure that Iran never—and I mean never—acquires a nuclear weapon,” the president said in his address. “Iran is not complying with the spirit of the deal,” he claimed. Trump also announced new sanctions against Iran’s revolutionary guard, in order “to block their financing of terror.” The president gave Congress two months to amend the deal, likely including new sanctions, and said that if no new agreement could be reached, “the agreement will be terminated.” Trump’s own defense secretary, James Mattis, told the Senate last week that it is of “national-security interest” for the U.S. remain in the Iran deal.

Fires in Northern California Kill At Least 28 People

The fires tearing through Northern California have claimed at least 28 lives, with 14 deaths reported in Sonoma County alone, according to officials.

Sonoma County Sheriff Rob Giordano provided an update on the death toll in his jurisdiction during a press conference Thursday that was livestreamed via Facebook.

“We are moving into a recovery phase,” Giordano said, describing efforts to search for missing persons and, in some cases, recovering their bodies.

Thirty detectives and 10 search and rescue workers are currently handling 900 missing persons reports. Of those, 437 people have been accounted for and are safe. Another 463 people are still missing, although Giordano noted that in many situations it has been a communication issue. Cell service has been a problem in the area, he said.

Another 10 search and rescue workers from another jurisdiction may soon join the effort. Cadaver dogs have also been brought in to help find bodies.

“We’re doing targeted searches,” he said. “Teams of people are going out looking for a very specific person based on a missing person case to a very specific place. That’s how the majority of the recoveries have been handled so far.”

In terms of identification of the deceased, Giordano cautioned that it “is going to be hard.” He continued, “So far in the recoveries we have found bodies that have been almost completely intact and we found bodies that were nothing more than ash and bones. ”

In some cases, authorities have been able to identify the deceased through medical devices.

The fires have destroyed thousands of buildings and have forced people forced to evacuate. Mendocino, Napa, and Sonoma counties have been the hardest hit areas. A number of wineries have also burned down.

Updates are being posted to the official Facebook pages of both of the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office and Sonoma County, as well as emergency site Nixel.

Kill the crazy ‘Scaffold Law’ to help New York grow

Residents of New York state continue to flee in droves, seeking jobs and lower taxes. The problem is worse in upstate New York because our area has been hit hard with job losses in manufacturing in recent decades and Albany imposes crippling mandates — state programs and regulations paid for in part using local revenue…

Bronx Girl Who Poured Boiling Water on 11-Year-Old Friend As a ‘Prank’ Has Reportedly Tried to Kill Herself

11-year-old Jamoneisha Merrit was sleeping at a friend’s house when she woke up in agony after being doused by boiling water by a friend.

The act was part of a prank war gone terribly wrong.

The 12-year-old girl responsible for the attack has tried to kill herself over the incident, according to her mother.

via NYDN:

“My daughter tried to stab herself with a knife,” said mom Shernett Panton, 34, on Thursday. “It was a prank — not a good prank. But after she saw what she did to (Jamoneisha) was really wrong, she tried to kill herself.”

The burned girl’s mother allegedly choked 12-year-old Aniya Grant Stuart over the incident, and the angry parent appeared Thursday morning spewing threats outside the Panton apartment.

“I’m going to cut your face, you f—ing b—-!” Ebony Merritt screamed at Panton. “I’m going to burn your f—ing house down! You let this happen to my daughter!”

According to Panton, the girl she knew as Jamoni was a friend of her daughter Aniya and basically moved into their apartment about a month ago.

“They always prank each other,” said Panton. “My daughter was sleeping and Jamoni poured cold water on Aniya. My daughter was like, ‘OK, if you’re gonna do a prank on me, I’m gonna prank you back.’

“But my daughter — I don’t know what she was thinking — boiled hot water and poured it on Jamoni’s face.”

Panton was sleeping around 4 a.m. when the bizarre incident occurred as Jamoni slept on a couch in the family living room.

The girl was rushed to Harlem Hospital for treatment of the burns. The Rev. Robert Rice prayed with the burn victim, her mother and her grandmother in the girl’s hospital room.

“She’s doing fine, she’s strong,” said Rice. “Her spirit is strong. I gave her a hug, and she’s smiling.”

Aniya was under a suicide watch at Bronx-Lebanon Hospital Center after trying to stab herself with a knife, according to her mom.

“What she did was really wrong, but it’s too much right now,” said Panton, 34. “My daughter is 12. Everybody makes mistakes.”

After Panton told The News that the Merritts were threatening her family every day, Ebony Merritt appeared outside the clan’s Findlay Ave. apartment and launched into an expletive-laden tirade.

The police were called to the scene to speak with Merritt and defuse the situation.

Both of these kids are going to need some serious psychological help in dealing with the aftermath of the situation. We hope they get it.

Gene Therapy May Kill Multiple Myeloma

Multiple Myeloma

Genetically using a person’s own immune cells to target cancer appears to virtually kill multiple myeloma, a blood cancer being diagnosed more frequently, according to an early trial from China.

The therapy, called CAR T-cell therapy, caused 33 of 35 patients with recurring multiple myeloma to enter full remission or have a significant reduction in their disease within two months.

In a second study, developed by the National Cancer Institute, nearly two dozen patients responded well to the treatment.

Experts at an American Society of Clinical Oncology conference in Chicago, where the results were announced last week, say though both studies were small, this is a first for multiple myeloma.

The results are “impressive,” said Len Lichtenfeld, M.D., deputy chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society. “These are patients who have had prior treatment and had their disease return, and 100 percent of the patients are reported to have had some form of meaningful response to these cells that were administered.”

For the new therapy, custom-designed for each patient, doctors collect the patient’s T-cells—one of the immune system’s main cell types—and genetically reprogram them to attack abnormal multiple myeloma cells.

The process is like a GPS, said lead researcher Wanhong Zhao, M.D., associate director of hematology at the Second Affiliated Hospital of Xi’an Jiaotong University in Xi’an, China. Immune cells are steered to cancer cells, making them assassins that never miss their target.

“The theory is [altered T-cells] should attack the tumor and continue to grow to become a long-term monitoring and treatment system,” Dr. Lichtenfeld said.

The technology represents the next step forward in immunotherapy for cancer, said Michael Sabel, M.D., chief of surgical oncology at the University of Michigan. “Immunotherapy is now really providing hope to a lot of patients with cancers that were not really responding to our standard chemotherapies.”

Historically, such therapies tend to be very expensive, Dr. Lichtenfeld said, and experts don’t see CAR-T breaking that cycle, should it receive approval. But it’s still early and much more research will be needed before that step.

The Chinese research team plans to continue the study with 100 patients at four hospitals in China. And a similar clinical trial will take place in the U.S. by 2018.

Multiple myeloma affects plasma cells, which make antibodies to fight infection. More than 30,000 cases occur each year in this country, with more than 115,000 worldwide. It’s the second-fastest growing cancer for men and the third for women, rising 2 percent to 3 percent per year, according to the NCI. Between 60,000 and 70,000 Americans have the blood cancer now, and only about 50 percent of them live five years after diagnosis.

Researchers Hilariously Debate Whether Or Not To Kill Bigfoot

There’s a big debate going on in the Bigfoot community: Should you kill the hairy creature (assuming, of course, you can actually find one)?

That’s the argument running through “Killing Bigfoot,” a six-part series debuting Feb. 4 on Destination America.

The show follows a team of monster hunters known as the Gulf Coast Bigfoot Research Organization (GCBRO) as they attempt to track down and shoot a Sasquatch-type creature supposedly attacking people’s homes, farm animals and pets in the deep South.

Not everyone approves of the team’s mission. In the clip above, neuropsychologist Dr. Samuel Webb Sentell, a former member of GCBRO, pleads with group leader Jim Landsdale and member Donald McDonald not to kill a Bigfoot.

As debates go, this one gets hairy:

WEBB: “Here’s the thing, here’s the reason you can’t shoot one: They are intelligent, they seem to have families, they are human. They are either human or human hybrid.”

JIM: “And they’re all theories. Everything you just said was theory. Everything. You can’t prove anything.”

WEBB: “It is theory. It is theory. No, we can’t prove it. No, you can’t. But guess what?”

JIM: “Then why do you, you, you scatter this like you’re fertilizing a field, Webb?”

The debate grows even more heated when Webb argues that killing a Bigfoot could conceivably be murder.

WEBB: “I’m trying to keep you from being a murderer.”

JIM: “No! I’m not a murderer!”

WEBB: “You’re going to be!”

JIM: “Here’s the point I’m trying to make: What we do is hunting nuisance animals. Do you know what a nuisance animal is?”

WEBB: “They’re not nuisance animals.”

JIM: “You’re crazy. You don’t know what you’re talking about. They come up, beat on your house, and your children are afraid to go outside. He’s killing your pets, your ducks, your geese. That’s not a nuisance?”

Webb then suggests that diplomacy might be the best way to handle a trespassing Bigfoot.

“Here’s what you don’t believe,” he says. “All you gotta do is ask them quit eatin’ your chickens, and they will quit eatin’ your chickens.”

8 Steps to Kill Writer’s Block and Dance With the Muse

2014-09-04-writinginKip.png

I don’t believe in writer’s block.

There, I said it.

I do believe sometimes you write better than other times.

I was lucky. I grew up in the world of acting and had teachers who taught me that the creative process was not just about listening to your head, it was about listening from a different place, Sandy Miesner called it the impulse. So I learned you find the creative flow by opening the field of vision in order to listen with all of the senses.

After I left the world of acting and eventually learned about spirituality, it was great fun to discover the two disciplines had a lot in common: presence, listening, noticing the voice of the ego vs the voice of spirit.

It was Betty Buckley who opened my eyes to how to be a shamanic creatrix. Of course, she never would have used those words. I was lucky to work as an intern at the Williamstown Theater festival where she was performing. I will never forget sitting in her audience, feeling her song, and understanding for the first time the real power of performance. Betty anchored in the teaching that when you connect to the sacred through your creative act, when you step on to the stage with the intention to connect to the heart of your audience, you can have a profound impact.

I think of it as touching the void, that moment when you allow a universal truth to run through you. You surface something through your words/dance/acting/movement/song that your audience recognizes as true… they can feel it in a place that needs no words, and they experience the inner nod… because you are dancing with the muse.

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Elizabeth Gilbert’s great TED TALK, The Elusive Creative Genius, where she discussed how the pressure of believing it is just you creating is enough to drive anyone insane.

But I digress. Lets cut to the chase and focus on the title of this post. If you are living in the illusion that you are creating all on your own and are feeling disconnected from the genius… I hope these tips help you break on through to the other side.

1. Stop Listening to Yourself

If what you are writing is crap, just stop.

Listen. The muse loves to play. All you need to do is be present enough to listen. She’ll come around often and lots when you stop pretending you are the only one creating.

Now that you stopped trying to create, go with the first thing that comes to mind. Even if it seems crazy and out of place, just go with it and see where it takes you. Trust.

2. Do Something That Scares You

I’m not saying jump off a cliff for heaven’s sake. I’m saying step out of your familiar comfort zone. Invite new experiences into your life. See what new conversations take place, what new material presents, what inspiration arises. (This is the quickest way to shake yourself out any kind of rut (right next to doing something good for someone else.)

3. Watch Robin Williams

When Robin died, I did what you did, started watching old videos of his interviews. He was out of control. Some of what he said was hilarious. Some of what he said wasn’t, but the fact that he said it was hilarious. For better or for worse, he didn’t censor what came through him. The result: We loved him for being his wild zany unpredictable self. We’ll probably love you for being your authentic self too… once you start sharing it with us.

3. Listen With Purpose

Imagine yourself surrounded by a muse/guardian angel. All she wants to do is inspire you, but the only way she can speak to you is through the physical things that surround you. NOW the annoying guy in the Starbucks line talking too loudly on his cell phone is about to say the title of your next book, the wind whispering through the pines is going to make you remember a sensation that explains your character in a way you didn’t dare to imagine. You get it. Everything is material. Everything. That little voice speaking…maybe it comes from behind you, inside of you, arrives in your mind’s eye…that is the muse my friend. Just take the first snipit and run like a banshee and don’t look back until you’re done. Edit later. It’s ok. Something will be in there.

4. Step Away

Everyone knows the most brilliant ideas arrive as soon as you get up to go to the bathroom. Why? Because when you’re going on and on for hours with your pals trying to create something epic, your line of vision can become so focused, it becomes narrow. So step away from what you are focusing on and allow your mind’s field of vision to expand again and let the muse in for another spin around the dance floor.

5. Leave No Pencil Behind

Walk with a notebook and pen everywhere you go. Write every little idea that comes to you. Put the ideas for new projects in a special place. Don’t think you will remember them. The muse can be fickle and can take what she offers right after she gives it. So write it all down. Right now. Before you forget. (You can use Evernote for this if you just. can’t. put. down. your. phone.

6. Do What You Love

If you’re still pretending you can’t get through your writer’s block or create anything of worth, then open up a new document, think about that other idea or concept or story idea that totally turns you on, and go for it. You’ll hate me in the morning. Why? Because you’ll stay up all night pacing with new ideas, high as a kite coursing with the passion for this new project, and write the first 17 chapters of your next book. Then you’ll have to decide which one you need to finish first. I apologize in advance. Meanwhile, you played in a river that was flowing and that was fun.

7. Leave Everything Behind And See What You’re Made Of

For an hour, for a day, for a month, for a year. Put the physical things that are taking up your energy aside. Clear all of your psychic debts. Deal with the people you have been avoiding. Clean up your physical space, and there will be so much more room for the muse and the genius to run though you.

8. Just Do It

I thought I had it all figured out until Paul Hawken (who has authored seven books) said something that stopped me in my tracks. He said something along the lines of how he just doesn’t buy it when people say “spirit wrote the book.” He said, YOU write the book. You are the one that sits down every day and writes.

I should add I also don’t believe in waiting for spirit to “move me.” It’s like meditating. It’s a practice, you show up every day and just do it. Some days are great. Some days aren’t as great. (And when spirit does come with a dose of inspiration, you know I right it down asap.)

Confession

Now I’m going to confess something. Last night I had a nightmare that this small being that I was caring for ran out into the street and was stabbed by a pitch fork. When I picked it up, there were holes throughout it’s body, but once it was in my hands, the holes healed. The whole day I was terrified that the dream was about the novel I just launched I kickstarter. I offered to give people one chapter at a time as I complete the final draft of the manuscript. (CRAZY.) I think my dream was pointing out my fear that people mike poke holes in this story that I was put in care of creating. I think of stories like that, as having a soul of their own that we have the good fortune of caring for.

It is inevitable, at some point, when you put yourself out there, people won’t care for your creation. But so what. Don’t let that stop you from creating. Most people don’t like the smell of your breath first thing in the morning either. Does that stop you from brushing? My point exactly.

The only reason anything happens is so the next thing can happen. So just keep on going and see what happens next.
