Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty Generated $72M in Earned Media Value Last Month

rihanna

Rihanna’s cosmetic company, Fenty Beauty, made a huge splash on social media when it first launched last month. The all-inclusive makeup line was widely celebrated for offering a vast variety of products for women of color with darker skin tones. Now, just weeks after it hit shelves, WWD reports that it has generated a whopping $ 72 million in earned media value in September, alone.

Social Media Drives Success

 

Earned media value (EMV) is a metric of publicity that a company or brand gains outside of traditional promotional efforts like paid advertising. It is typically measured by the number of social endorsements and the level of engagement received on social media and other digital platforms. Other top companies with high EMV in the first quarter of 2017 were Disney, which gained over $ 14 million in EMV; Forever 21, which generated more than $ 12 million; and H&M with over $ 7 million.

According to WWD, Fenty’s EMV outpaced the earnings of other major beauty brands, including Kylie Jenner’s Kylie Cosmetics, Urban Decay, and NYX. MAC and Too Faced are the only two cosmetic lines that exceeded Fenty Beauty’s EMV metrics for the month of September. On top of that, YouTube also announced that Fenty Beauty received an impressive 132 million views in its first month.

In 2016, Rihanna signed a $ 10 million deal with the Kendo division of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton to roll out Fenty Beauty. The first installment, which included 40 shades of foundation, was released on Sept. 8 online and in stores in over 150 countries. The superstar singer also recently released a holiday collection that is sure to make a killing. Back in 2014, the 29-year-old Bajan singer inked a deal with Puma and has a net worth of $ 75 million, according to Forbes.

Tracy Morgan’s TBS Comedy ‘The Last O.G.’ Delayed Until 2018

Folks will have to wait a little longer for Tracy Morgan’s anticipated TBS comedy series “The Last O.G.”

Variety reports that executive producer and showrunner John Carcieri has dropped out of the project, which was originally scheduled to premiere next week. It’s now set to debut some time in 2018.

As previously reported, the series stars Morgan as a man who gets out of prison and returns to Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant, only to find it overrun with hipster gentrification. Cedric the Entertainer and Tiffany Haddish also star.

A new showrunner has yet to be named.

Below, more details via Variety:

“The Last O.G.” is the result of a years-long process to develop a post-“30 Rock” comedy series for Morgan — one that was interrupted by the 2014 six-vehicle crash that severely injured the comedian. During his recovery, Morgan binge-watched Comedy Central’s “Key & Peele.” Afterward, he sought out Jordan Peele to develop a series with him, one that began at FX before migrating to TBS.

Carcieri, an executive producer on the show alongside Peele and Morgan, was previously a writer on HBO’s “Eastbound and Down” and “Vice Principals.” It was on the former that Carcieri got his first television job, hired as a writers’ assistant by his University of North Carolina classmates Jody Hill and Danny McBride. He also co-wrote the screenplay for the feature film “The Legacy of a Whitetail Deer Hunter.”

Who Is Supreme Leader Snoke? (UPDATED with ‘The Last Jedi’ Trailer)

Everybody loves a good villain. Whether it’s Darth Vader, Darth Maul, or Emperor Palpatine himself, villains have a way of captivating us even when they scare us. It’s no surprise, then, that fans latched onto Supreme Leader Snoke when he was introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

We know Snoke leads the First Order and is the master of Kylo Ren. His deformed face and ghastly demeanor suggest he could be ancient and incredibly powerful in the dark side of the Force, but we know nothing more beyond that. This leaves fans wondering: who is Supreme Leader Snoke? And will we learn more about him when he appears in the flesh in Star Wars: The Last Jedi?

There are a lot of fan theories circulating that answer these questions. Some we can be fairly certain aren’t true — is he Mace Windu or Darth Maul? Probably not. But here are some of the more compelling rumors about Snoke’s identity.

Is Snoke Darth Plagueis?


Many fans would love it if Snoke was Darth Plagueis, Emperor Palpatine’s Sith master.

Let’s start here, since Darth Plagueis has been the most popular fan rumor for Snoke’s identity. Plagueis was the Sith master of Emperor Palpatine and briefly mentioned in Revenge of the Sith.

Chatter about Plagueis and Snoke being one and the same started after the announcement that Andy Serkis would play the character using motion capture technology, and he was described as tall, thin, and ancient-looking. These are all words that could describe the alien Darth Plagueis.

Serkis was quick to say that Snoke is a new character, and even at San Diego Comic-Con in 2015 when a fan asked Lawrence Kasdan, the co-writer of The Force Awakens, about a connection between the two characters, he responded with a bewildered “Darth Vegas?”

There were even rumors that Rey’s quarterstaff weapon was the staff of Darth Plagueis, once referenced in the non-canon novel Star Wars: Darth Plagueis.

In the film itself, Kylo Ren says that “the Supreme Leader is wise.” Perhaps this is a reference to Darth Plagueis the Wise, the story told to Anakin Skywalker when Palpatine seduced him to the dark side in Revenge of the Sith?

Odds are, Plagueis will not be making a comeback in the sequel trilogy. Though there is something intriguing about the idea of Palpatine’s master, spoken of only in legend, being the true architect of evil all along.

Is Snoke Gallius Rax?


Gallius Rax intended to use the Battle of Jakku to give rise to a better, stronger Empire.

Star Wars novelist, Chuck Wendig, introduced Gallius Rax in the Aftermath trilogy, which tells the story of how the New Republic defeated the Empire in the year after Return of the Jedi. Rax was Palpatine’s protege ever since the Clone Wars and had the responsibility of carrying out Palpatine’s Contingency orders. The Contingency was created in the event of the Emperor’s death and had one central idea: if the Empire cannot protect its Emperor, it doesn’t deserve to survive and had to be destroyed.

Rax planned to use the Battle of Jakku as a way of destroying the Empire and the New Republic, and then lead the few chosen surviving Imperials into the Unknown Regions to start again. The Empire had been charting the Unknown Regions for years, using the knowledge of Grand Admiral Thrawn and the Emperor’s scouts.

However, Grand Admiral Rae Sloane killed Rax and prevented him from fully enacting the Contingency, and the Republic won the battle, but Sloane led the surviving Imperials into the Unknown Regions. It was there that they founded the First Order, which is why some fans have wondered if Rax, the architect of what became the First Order, could be Snoke. But unless he’s just faking his death, we can assume it’s not him.

Is Snoke the Ancient Sith Emperor?



Fans of the MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic have wondered if the Sith Emperor, known as Vitiate and Valkorion, could be the identity of Supreme Leader Snoke. This ancient Emperor lived during the first war between the Jedi and the Sith and rebuilt the defeated Sith into an empire that brought the Old Republic to its knees. His true goal, however, was to live forever and reshape the galaxy how he wanted it to be.

The Old Republic is a non-canon storyline, so it’s doubtful we’ll see its primary villain revealed as Supreme Leader Snoke, but with the transmedia storytelling involved at Lucasfilm, it’s not entirely outside the realm of possibility. There have also been hints that Snoke has lived for a very long time and has seen everything that transpired during the previous six films, suggesting he could be ancient. In the novelization of The Force Awakens, Snoke tells Kylo Ren about how he watched the Empire rise and fall and that he wants to create something stronger than the Empire ever was.

Is Snoke A New Power From Beyond the Galaxy?

The Aftermath trilogy also revealed that the Emperor was obsessed with the Unknown Regions. It called to him. Yupe Tashu, an advisor to Palpatine before the Emperor’s death, was a dark side historian and argued that the future of the Empire was in the Unknown Regions, where the First Order ultimately came to power. He said that Palpatine believed his power came from beyond the known galaxy, and so the Emperor sent teams into the unknown to learn more about it. Tashu argued that the Empire should “seek the source of the dark side like a man looking for a wellspring of water.” Only Palpatine sensed his power. Not even Darth Vader could, suggesting it was an extremely powerful force.

All of the Aftermath trilogy’s talk about the Unknown Regions and its powers suggests that these are not off-hand comments or meant only for the rebuilding of the Empire into the First Order. If there was a power beyond the known galaxy, a power that had been there throughout the events of the previous films, could that be Supreme Leader Snoke? He is from or influenced by the source of the dark side itself, so will we learn more about this in The Last Jedi?

This would fit with Serkis saying Snoke is a new character, and it would mean that the seeds for Snoke’s arrival and true nature have already been planted in the post-Return of the Jedi storyline. It’s for these reasons that this is the most credible Snoke theory so far.

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi:’ Supreme Leader Snoke Unveiled

The above video was created by Star Wars Explained.

Supreme Leader Snoke — the big baddie of the First Order — is featured prominently in the just released trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Snoke made a brief appearance in The Force Awakens, giving instructions from the shadows.

The new trailer opens with him seemingly addressing his apprentice Kylo Ren, “When I found you, I saw raw untamed power. And beyond that … something truly special.”

However, later in the trailer, Snoke has captured Rey, ordering her to “fulfill her destiny.” So perhaps the opening line is addressing her instead of Kylo.

One thing is for sure; he has formidable powers, causing his captive to tremble and scream (even Kylo Ren couldn’t break Rey in The Force Awakens) via telekinesis.

So what do we know about the Supreme Leader of the First Order?

He is humanoid, but disfigured. And while he appears physically frail, he has mastery over the Force. He was able to lure Kylo Ren (the son of Leia and Han Solo) over to the dark side. Whereas the Emperor, Darth Vader, and Kylo Ren all have a penchant for wearing black, Snoke is seen wearing an ornate golden robe.

Will Snoke be able to do the same with Rey? Only time will tell.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in theaters on December 15.

Revocable Living Trust vs. Last Will

last-will-living-trust-paperwork

Planning your estate and your end-of-life arrangements is a unique experience for everyone. There are many ways to combine the documents you need to ensure that all of your assets are managed and distributed in line with your wishes.

Since each estate planning document has its own specific purpose, this presents an opportunity to compare similar forms and contracts to see how they best suit your needs. In this post, we’ll discuss a Revocable Living Trust and a Last Will and Testament—similar documents that both instruct how to distribute your assets after death but differ in their creation and execution processes.

What are Revocable Living Trusts and Last Wills?

A Revocable Living Trust is a legal document—usually made to transfer wealth, or protect assets—that can be revoked or amended during the life of the grantor (the owner of the estate in question). It’s a private contract where a grantor places their assets in the charge of a trustee. A trustee is an individual or a group of individuals who hold property or authority over and responsibility for the assets for the benefit of another person (the beneficiary). A trustee ensures that the instructions for inheritance and distribution are followed in accordance with the grantor’s last wishes.

Many people create living trusts and name themselves and usually a spouse as trustees, thus giving them total control over their trusted assets and property while they’re alive. This would be the exact same situation with a Last Will, where you control your property until you die.

Some people also name successor trustees who step in if something happens to the primary trustee, like they become incapacitated or are otherwise unwilling or unable to act as a trustee. Having a successor is a good idea if you are the named trustee and don’t have a spouse or other person to be a co-trustee.

A Last Will and Testament is a document that describes how you would like your assets distributed to specific people or institutions (like charities) after your death. This document, too, can be revoked and amended during the life of the testator. Similar to Living Trusts, in a Living Will the testator names beneficiaries for their assets and an executor (like a trustee) who is responsible for carrying out the last wishes. Often people use non-relative, third parties as executors, like your banker for example.

What’s the difference between a Living Trust and a Last Will?

One of the main differences between these documents is that a Living Trust doesn’t need to go through probate to be executed.

Probate is a legal process overseen by a probate court that determines the validity of a Last Will. If someone dies intestate—without leaving a Last Will—their estate still undergoes the process of probate, whereby the court appoints a representative to act as the executor and divvies up the estate in accordance with state law.

One of the main advantages of having a Revocable Living Trust is that it skips the probate process because of the document’s nature as a private contract. Avoiding probate can cut down the time and expenses that come with distributing your assets to your beneficiaries in a Last Will.

Trusts are typically used to protect assets with high monetary value like real estate, business interests, stocks, bonds, or valuable personal property like antiques and jewelry. Although property with lower monetary value or property that requires insurance (like a car) can technically be put into living trusts, it’s not very common. For vehicles specifically, it is unlikely that an insurance company would be willing to insure a vehicle legally owned by a trust—but, again, it’s not impossible.

Trusts can be more complicated than Wills when it comes to distributing assets because there are more steps and documents required for the Trust to be valid. After completing your Living Trust document, you’ll have to go through the process of transferring ownership of assets so that your property is legally owned by the trust. For instance, if you’re leaving real estate to a beneficiary, you would transfer your ownership of the property into the trust using a document like a Quitclaim Deed.

If you are the trustor and the trustee, you would likely be transferring the property from Morgan Smith (you) to Morgan Smith, Trustee of the Morgan Smith Living Trust, for example.

The idea of the Living Trust is to secure your assets and control property, which is something that you can do in a Last Will as well. However, Trusts are usually best suited for individuals with more complex estates or with a lot of high-value assets, someone who owns many properties in different states for instance.

Can I keep my estate plans private?

Last Wills can be used for the same purposes (of security and control of assets) as Living Trusts, but many people don’t like that their estate plans become public court records if they’re Will-based. The only reason Revocable Living Trusts remain completely private is because each of the phases of the contract (creation, transfer of ownership of property, and inheritance of property) can all be carried out without filing with the probate court.

Because they don’t use courts for execution, Revocable Living Trusts are usually exempt from court challenges, which is not the case for Last Wills.

Do I need a Last Will or a Living Trust? Or both?

There are advantages to both documents. Living Trusts tend to work best for people with complicated estates, like business owners who are passing leadership of their companies down to their children or other beneficiaries. Trusts also have a reputation of being relatively quick in their execution because they skip probate.

But don’t forget that Living Trusts only focus on the distribution of your assets, not the other aspects of your end-of-life planning. You still need a Will to name guardians for minor children, for instance. It’s also a good idea to have a Last Will for assets you might have left out of your Living Trust, like your car, and you might also want to create a Medical Power of Attorney to summarize your medical treatment preferences should you become incapacitated.

A trustee can step in immediately to handle your affairs if you’re incapacitated or ill; however, a Living Trust doesn’t relate your medical treatment preferences, such as your wishes for resuscitation and tube-feeding. Of course, if you name yourself as the trustee without a spouse as a co-trustee, that presents another hurdle for your estate if you don’t have a Medical Power of Attorney in place.

Ultimately, it’s your estate and your choice how you want to plan it. Evaluate your situation and research all of the possibilities available to you. If you’re still struggling, you can always contact a local attorney for advice.

Which document works best in your estate plans?

Chicago’s Last Black-Owned Bank Gets $20 Million Cash Infusion

In an effort to spark economic development activity within the black community, the city of Chicago has deposited $ 20 million into ISF Bank—the oldest and last black-owned Chicago-based bank.

 

The bank, formerly named Illinois Service Federal Savings and Loan Association, plans to use the money for multiple purposes, says Papa Kwesi Nduom, the bank’s chairman.

 


(L-R: ISF Bank Directors: Donald Davison, James Buckner, Papa Kwesi Nduom; Cliff Rome, owner of Peaches Restaurant. Image: Courtesy of Papa Kwesi Nduom)

 

 

Located on the city’s South Side, ISF Bank was founded in Chicago in 1934 to serve communities historically underserved by traditional financial institutions. ISF Bank is No. 11 on the BE 100s Banks list.

Boosting the Bank’s Capacity to Serve Customers

 

Nduom says the money could be used to provide loans to black entrepreneurs wanting to open or expand businesses. Another use would be to lend to commercial developers to build houses, condos, or apartments—as well as to black homebuyers—in neighborhoods it serves.

 

He says the deposit provides “a much-needed boost to our financial foundation, ensuring that we can strengthen the economic base of our communities and help people fulfill their dreams.”

 

“This will help us become a more significant player in the economic revitalization in the Chicago black community,” Nduom says. “This will do some good and wonderful things for the bank.”

 

The investment comes at a dicey time for the city. Observers are hopeful it will help erase some violent activity, create jobs, and lessen economic disparity some say exists in the city.

 

City Treasurer Kurt Summers told Black Enterprise via email that the deposited money would indeed allow ISF Bank to make more loans and invest more directly back into the communities where many of their customers reside.

He added, “It is our hope that with this deposit and the confidence it conveys to other organizations and individuals recognizing the important role that community banks serve here in Chicago and elsewhere, and entertain opening accounts of their own.”

 

 

Making an Investment into Community Banking

 

According to Summers, the city maintains roughly $ 300 million to $ 700 million in larger non-black owned banks during the course of a fiscal year. Yet, Summers says the deposit into ISF Bank highlights the commitment the City Treasurer’s office is making into community banking but more importantly to the overall community on the Southside of Chicago.

 

“We heard it first-hand right after the press announcement where local small business owners and community members who were present at the event highlighted that they will open an account with ISF Bank to support them,” Summers says. “The community heard the call to action in regards to supporting ISF Bank and they are willing to do their part as we were willing to do ours and invest in them.”

 

(ISF Bank conducts a networking event for small businesses in Chicago. Image: Facebook/ISF Bank)

 

Nduom says the city has deposited the money and opened an account, adding it has “great expectations” the bank will disperse the money for good purposes. He says the city has expressed it may deposit more with the bank once it sees the funds are being used appropriately.

 

He emphasized the bank has a responsibility to the city and its regulators to ensure that this money is used prudently and in safe and sound manner.

 

 

Deposit Could Help Generate New Business Activity

 

The deposit might help the bank, now with assets of around $ 105 million, attract new business. Nduom says the investment has already improved the bank’s credibility, making it a more viable option for individuals, businesses, and organizations to consider for loans, deposits, and other relationships.

 

“It is making some people look at us with more favorable eyes,” he says.

 

Larger banks are historically not as vigorous as black banks to lend to blacks to start or expand businesses, buy homes or churches for new construction, or renovation projects.

 

Other black institutions, including Seaway Trust and Bank, Highland Community Bank and Covenant Bank, are among black-owned banks that have closed in Chicago the past four years, reports the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation Division of Banking.

 

Nduom says the deposit is a big deal for the bank and the black community. To his knowledge, he says, it marks the first time that a high-ranking city official has come to the community and said the problems on the city’s South Side are economic in nature.

“The city is making an economic statement with this deposit,” he says. “It’s historic and in the right direction for the community.”

3 Unconventional Additions for Your Last Will

Despite it being inevitable, not many of us enjoy carving time out of our day to think about our passing. When our day comes, we hope we have time to say goodbye to our loved ones and put all our affairs in order. But the future is unpredictable. Creating a Last Will and Testament, however, can help you prepare.

A Last Will and Testament is a document created by you that helps a trusted individual carry out your final wishes, like distributing your assets to your beneficiaries and paying debts.

Aside from the basics, like naming your beneficiaries and leaving behind your property, you can also personalize your Will by adding unconventional beneficiaries, your online persona, digital assets, and your social media accounts.

Find out what questions you should be asking when creating your estate plans in this post.

1. Do I Need to Know My Beneficiaries?

Most people already have their beneficiaries in mind, for example their spouse, children, siblings, or close friend. But what about those of us who have no living relatives or close friends?

It’s actually more common than you might think for people to leave all or part of their estate to alternative beneficiaries. This can be an acquaintance, charity or organization, or even a town, which was the case for Keith Owen who donated over two million to the town of Sidmouth, England and the town’s conservation organization, Sid Vale Association.

And, if that’s not your style, you could always follow Luis Carlos’ example: A wealthy Portuguese man who left his lofty fortune to 70 individuals he randomly selected from the phone book.

While it’s likely that you won’t transfer your estate to a town or to 70 strangers, it’s good to know that there are options for you to choose from. Sit down and create a list of all those—human or not— that you’d like to recognize after you pass away.

2. Can I Include Digital Assets in My Will?

You likely have plenty of online accounts and assets that are blocked by a username and password such as your online banking information, your Amazon or Apple account, services like Netflix or Hulu, and even online payment services such as PayPal. So, what will happen to all those accounts after you die?

For the most part, absolutely nothing. However, you may want reoccurring payments to stop immediately or to have all those accounts closed. To do this, your executor should have any relevant account information.

This can be done by attaching an Online Identity Record to your Will. An Online Identity Record or Online ID, for short, is a document that identifies your account and membership information, including usernames and passwords, for the various online business and services you use. In life, this document can help you sort and organize all of the accounts assigned to your name. In death, this document can help your executor implement your final wishes with respect to those accounts, even if it is just closing them.

In addition, some of your digital assets, such as your loyalty reward points, have financial value. Think of the WestJet Reward points you’ve been collecting for that long overdue trip to Rome or all those free beverages you’ve acquired from your daily Dunkin’ Donuts visit. While you may not be preparing to picket in front of Dunkin Donut’s head office for the right to transfer a free coffee to your heirs, loyalty program points can accumulate to be worth thousands of dollars.

So, what do you do? It’s suggested that you research your loyalty point programs and review the fine print concerning transfers after death. Keep in mind, however, that those policies aren’t always followed, which was the case with the American Airlines’ AAdvantage program. Even though their policy explicitly states accrued miles are non-transferable after death, Laura Nedbal, American Airlines’ spokeswoman indicated that, upon request, documents to enact a transfer can be sent to your beneficiaries. In short, read the fine print but know that sometimes all you need to do is ask.

To account for the various program or policy changes that may occur over time, “use flexible language’” when adding loyalty programs to your Will.

There are other assets you might want to include in your Will like your Apple iTunes and Amazon Kindle accounts. Over the years, you’ve probably spent hundreds of dollars on songs and books, and it makes sense to want to include them in your Will.

Unfortunately, in many situations, this is just not possible. There are rules about whether people can transfer accounts, and usually this also applies to the content within. There are also rules preventing others from using your account, even with your permission.

But—wait—if you can gift a tangible CD or book, why not a digital one? Unfortunately, while you may be able to give away a book, you can’t legally copy it. And what’s more, in certain situations where you’re legally allowed to copy your purchases to another device, for example iTunes, this right expires when you pass away. So, if your beneficiaries need to make a copy of your music in order to listen to it, which is likely the case, they may be out of luck.

Regardless, add it to your Will using flexible language in case one day some stubborn person demands their music be passed down and the policies and laws change for the better.

3. How Do I Include My Social Media Accounts in My Will?

Social media may be the last thing on your mind as you plan your estate. But you probably don’t want all your posts available for your great, great grandchildren to read twenty years from now. There are various options for managing social media accounts after death.

In Facebook settings, for example, you can manage your account by adding a legacy contact—in other words, someone who can manage your Facebook account after you die. Your legacy contact can respond to friend requests, update a profile picture, or pin a post to your profile. Other social media sites, however, such as Twitter and LinkedIn, don’t seem to have similar account management settings. This is where your Online ID will be helpful, especially if you want all those accounts closed right away.

Other sites like DeadSocial help you to create a lasting impression on social media through scheduled posts after you pass away. In their introductory tutorial, DeadSocial suggests your first message tell your family and friends of your passing and that all subsequent messages were created by you “for them to enjoy”.

If you do choose to post after death, be sure to consider how those posts will affect your loved ones. A message from beyond the grave, in theory, may seem pleasant and thoughtful but, in reality, may be damaging to those still grieving your death.

Preparing Your Will

Now that you know that your Will is more than just distributing tangible assets after you pass, you’re ready to create estate plans that suit your needs. Write a list of everything you want to address in your Will, and be sure to include any alternative beneficiaries, digital assets, or social media accounts. By planning now, you can have peace of mind knowing that the fine details have already been taken care of—don’t wait until it’s too late.

How have you personalized your Will?

The Seventh Season of HBO’s Veep Will Be Its Last

The producers of HBO comedy Veep have decided to end the show after its seventh season next year.

The much-loved comedy series about political dysfunction in Washington has won 12 Primetime Emmy Awards since it began in 2012, including two for outstanding comedy series.

HBO programmers called the decision “bittersweet” in a statement.

“We love the show and everyone involved but respect the producers’ choice to bring Selina Meyer’s journey to its conclusion after an extraordinary run of critical and award-winning acclaim,” Casey Bloys, president of programming at HBO, told Variety. “Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ comedic brilliance infused Selina with a dynamic presence and a vibrant wit which will ensure her a place in the history of television’s most iconic comedic characters.”

Julia Louis-Dreyfus has won five consecutive Emmys for her performance as narcissistic Vice President (then failed President) Selina Meyer. She’s up for a sixth Emmy at this year’s awards for best actress in a comedy series.

“It became clear that this season should be the last season,” Louis-Dreyfus told The Hollywood Reporter. “We don’t want to repeat ourselves or wear out our welcome. The story has a finality to it that feels end-of-series.”

Veep‘s final season will begin shooting on Oct. 16 and will air on HBO in 2018.

Will Tamron Hall Get The Last Laugh In Megyn Kelly Deal?

Uh oh. Are the suits over at NBC freaking out cause they are worried that after dumping popular host Tamron Hall for Megyn Kelly that Kelly’s upcoming morning replacement show won’t appeal to younger people and non-whites? Yep, that’s the fear and the predicament the network finds itself in after Hall’s departure.

According to the Daily Beast, the network is freaking out because the performance of Kelly’s current Sunday night show has let execs in a “total panic” about her morning show, which will debut on Sept. 25. As we reported back in January, the network made room for Kelly by axing the 9am hour of the long-running “Today Show” that was co-hosted by Hall and Al Roker.

megyn kelly

“A lot of people were watching the [Sunday] magazine show to try to get a sense of her appeal to the daytime demographic and a sense of how she would be outside of the Fox environment,” one insider told The Daily Beast. “Fox News skews very male… I always tend to think of her as more of a guy’s girl than a girl’s girl… It’s extremely challenging, and I’m not sure Megyn’s personality really connects with women.”

Here’s what TV news analyst Andrew Tyndall had to say about Kelly’s Sunday show and its appeal or lack thereof especially to non-whites:

“The Sunday show laid such an egg that any claims that she had automatic star power, to get people in the door to see what she was doing, have been disavowed… The stardom of the celebrity anchor was a phenomenon of the 1980s back when [flamboyant ABC News president] Roone Arledge was around. In this day and age, the shows make the anchors, not the other way around.”

On the other hand, things are looking up for Hall. She’s working on her own syndicated daytime talk show with the backing of Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Like they say, when one door closes, another opens.

Daniel Craig CONFIRMS he’ll return as James Bond – but claims the next film will definitely be his last

DANIEL Craig has confirmed he will be playing James Bond for the fifth time in new movie Bond 25 – but has also said it will also be his last outing as the spy.

The British actor, 49, made the announcement on US programme The Late Show on Tuesday night, just hours after denying anything was set in stone, due to “personal decisions”.

Daniel Craig will return as Bond one more time

The news comes almost two years after Daniel said he’d “rather slash [his] wrists” that return to the role of 007.

He revealed to the live studio audience that he was offered the role again as soon as shooting wrapped on the latest film Spectre.

Trying to hide a grin, Daniel explained: “Instead of saying something with style and grace, I said something really stupid.”

Asked by host Stephen Colbert what that was, he said “yes”.

After much applause and cheering from the audience, Daniel added: “I think this is it.

“I just want to go out on a high note and I can’t wait.”

Daniel, who is married to actress Rachel Weisz, will now begin work on the new flick which is due out in November 2019, with director Yann Demange rumoured to be attached.


Daniel is the third oldest actor to play Bond, after Sean Connery, who played him at 53 in Never Say Never Again, and Sir Roger Moore, who played him at 57 in A View To A Kill.

Back in October 2015, Daniel made his famous statement about reprising the role of Bond, telling Time Out: “I’d rather… slash my wrists.

“No, not at the moment. Not at all. That’s fine. I’m over it at the moment. We’re done. All I want to do is move on.”

Craig in the last Bond movie Spectre which came out in 2015

And when he was asked who he felt should take over, he said: “Look, I don’t give a f***.”

However, asked if he may change his mind, he went on to add: “Who the f*** knows?

Spectre: Full trailer for new James Bond movie

“At the moment, we’ve done it. I’m not in discussion with anybody about anything. If I did another Bond movie, it would only be for the money.”

Spectre was not well-received by critics in 2015 but made an astonishing £684m at the box office.

Porgs may be food, not friends in ‘The Last Jedi’

Do you like your porgs pan-fried, deep-fried, stir-fried, or straight up with feathers? 

Ever since they were unleashed on an unsuspecting world last month, in a behind-the-scenes video from The Last Jedi, we’ve assumed that porgs are the new trilogy’s cutesy marketing gimmick — Ewoks with feathers and bigger eyes. 

The bird-like creatures are said to be numerous on the islands of Ahch-to, the world where Rey, BB-8, and Chewbacca find Luke Skywalker. They were created by director Rian Johnson, who noted that the real-life Irish island on which they were filming was filled with puffins.  Read more…

A source close to the channel confirmed the veracity of the email, according to the site. The email is dated late last month and it claims that the money offered would be part of a program in which “white hat IT professionals” are rewarded for “bringing these types of things to our attention.”

When the John Boyega character comes out of the coma where we left him at the end of The Force Awakens, he’s feeling pretty much the same way he did for most of that movie — wanting to get away from the whole war between Resistance and First Order, hoping the woman he met on Jakku will come with him.

“This is his chance to get away and perhaps find Rey and go off together,” Boyega tells EW. “He’s trying to do that at first … it got really real for him, and he just wants to get away and not get involved.” Read more…

Harry Shares His Regret Over Last Phone Call with Mom Diana: ‘If I’d Known … the Things I Would Have Said to Her’

Prince William and Prince Harry have shared poignant new photographs from their personal collection of their late mother, Princess Diana, as they open up about her life and legacy in a new documentary.

The deeply personal photos come from albums that the princes have been looking over in memory of the mother as part of ITV’s Our Mother Diana: Her Life and Legacy special, which airs in the U.K. on Monday. August 31 will mark the 20th anniversary of Diana’s death in a Paris car crash.

The documentary features appearances by Diana’s brother Charles Spencer, Elton John and Rihanna, who took an HIV test alongside Harry in Barbados last December to help break the stigma of getting tested. Diana was an early and very public campaigner for HIV and AIDS awareness and treatment.

The princes, who say that they will not speak out at length about her like this again, also talk movingly about the fact that their last phone call from her – on the day she died – was so short. Being such young boys, aged 15 and 12 respectively, they were keen to get to back to playing with their cousins at the Queen’s Scottish retreat, Balmoral. “And if I’d known that that was the last time I was going to speak to my mother the things that I would – the things I would have said to her,” Harry says in the documentary.

While discussing the documentary with reporters — including PEOPLE — at a meeting in Kensington Palace, William said, “This is a tribute from her sons to her.” He added that standing before a group about to watch the documentary was “possibly the most nervous I’ve ever been.”

“It’s one thing doing a documentary like this and it’s another thing standing front of all of you guys and explaining about something very personal to you,” he said. “Nevertheless, I think it’s very important that I’m here to do that.”

RELATED VIDEO: ‘They Will Never Know Her’: Prince William Admits He’s Sad Princess Diana Will Never Meet His Family

And William – who like Harry finds talking about his mother so intensely and publicly difficult — vowed, “We won’t speak as openly and as publicly about her again.”

He added, “We feel hopefully this film will provide the other side from her close family friends that you might not have heard from before, from those who knew her best, and from those who want to protect her memory and want to remind people of the person that she was: The warmth, the humor, and what she was like as a mother, which probably hasn’t come across before in many other pieces from other people.”

Harry also revealed he has only cried tears of grief twice – at her graveside at Althorp on September 6, 1997, and since then “maybe, maybe once. ”

“So there’s, you know, there’s a lot of — there’s a lot of grief that still needs to be let out.”

Harry added “There’s not a day that William and I don’t wish that she was still around, and we wonder what kind of a mother she would be now, and what kind of a public role she would have, and what a difference she would be making.”

Four Young Pennsylvania Men Missing Since Last Week; Authorities Suspect Foul Play

Pennsylvania authorities are searching for four young men who went missing in the past week.

Jimi Tar Patrick, 19, vanished last Wednesday. Two days later, Mark Sturgis, 22, Tom Meo, 21, and Dean Finocchiaro, 18, all vanished.

In a press conference on Monday afternoon, Bucks County District Attorney Matt Weintraub was asked if he believed foul play was involved. “I sure believe there is,” he replied, adding that authorities are treating the case “as a criminal investigation at this time.”

At least five municipal police departments, the Bucks County Sheriff, Pennsylvania State Police and the FBI are involved in searching multiple locations for any trace of the men. “It’s all hands on deck,” Weintraub told reporters. “The investigation is very serious and very sensitive.”

Investigators are focused on a large farm near where the men were last seen. They have taken the farm owner’s 20-year-old son into custody on an unrelated firearms charge. He is being questioned by police.

Meanwhile, cops are trying to determine how the men knew each other.  Sturgis and Meo are longtime friends who work in construction for Sturgis’ father. Finocchiaro is a mutual friend of theirs. It’s unclear whether Patrick knows any or all of the men.

Police have brought in heavy equipment to search the 68-acre farm, including a backhoe. Weintraub says that the search could go on for days. “It’s like finding needles in a haystack,” he said at the news conference. “We’re not exactly sure what we’re going to find there.”

While police continue their search, the men’s families are praying for their safety — and are trying to keep a positive attitude. “At this point, as the hours pass, it seems more and more grim,” Sturgis’ father, Mark Potash, told Philly.com. “It is very difficult. I really don’t know how I’m going to make it through the rest of the day. I’m going minute by minute right now.”

Anyone with information about the men’s whereabouts is asked to call the investigation’s tip line at (215) 297-8201.

Lifelong Packers Fan Had The Perfect Reason To Take His Wife’s Last Name

The stars certainly aligned when lifelong Green Bay Packers fan Ryan Holtan-Murphy met his future wife, Marie Packer. 

A self-described diehard fan, Holtan-Murphy has been obsessed with the football team since before he could even walk. So when it came time to say “I do,” Holtan-Murphy knew there was one decision he didn’t need to think twice about. His Packers pride would become part of his identity once and for all.

“Honestly it was never even a decision!” Ryan said of taking his bride’s last name. “I love her and love the Packers, so it was a no-brainer. Marie very graciously agreed!”

“Marie’s family is bemused but happy to let me join the party,” he continued. “My family lives in Wisconsin and is completely unsurprised.”

Writing over email from his honeymoon in Turks and Caicos, Ryan recalled the couple’s June 17 nuptials in Chicago, Illinois, which included some key Packers-related details. The groom surprised his bride with a green and gold suit and other decorative accents.

“Marie knew about some of the Packers decorations, but had no idea about the Packers suit,” he said. “I wasn’t sure she’d agree to go through with it if she knew. We also referenced the team in our vows: ’I promise to be a good teammate, just like the other Packers…” 

The team hasn’t reached out to the couple, though Miller Lite, the Green Bay Packers’ official beer sponsor, sent some beverages to the wedding and the newlyweds’ home. They also gave the pair two tickets to every Packers home game this season.

Check out more photos from the wedding by JPP Studios below.

Those Good Vibes You Feel After Sex Can Last For 48 Hours, Study Finds

Research has proven that people are generally in a better mood after having sex ― you can thank a flood of endorphins and other feel-good hormones for that. But how long do those post-sex feelings last?

A new study suggests that the positive effects of getting laid last up to two days ― and those good vibes also help couples bond over time.

Lead researcher Andrea Meltzer and her team at Florida State University examined data from two independent longitudinal studies, one with 96 newlywed couples and another with 118 newlywed couples. All the couples had completed at least three consecutive days of a 14-day sex diary.

Each night before falling asleep, the partners were asked to report whether they had sex that day. They were also asked to jot down how satisfied they were with three things: their sex life, their partner and their relationship as a whole.

On average, the participants had sex four days out of the 14. Unsurprisingly, sex on any given day was linked with feelings of sexual and relationship satisfaction ― but what’s interesting is that the afterglow effect lasted up to 48 hours later. And those who sustained the afterglow for that amount of time also were happy with their relationships months down the road. 

“People with a stronger sexual afterglow ― that is, people who report a higher level of sexual satisfaction 48 hours after sex ― report higher levels of relationship satisfaction several months later.”
Andrea Meltzer

“People with a stronger sexual afterglow ― that is, people who report a higher level of sexual satisfaction 48 hours after sex ― report higher levels of relationship satisfaction several months later,” Meltzer said of the study, which was published this month in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science.  

In an interview with The Huffington Post, Meltzer said what most surprised her most about the findings was how well the mental benefits of sex synced up with human biology.

“Forty-eight hours is roughly the same amount of time that (a) conception is maximized, (b) it takes sperm concentrations to be restored to peak levels, and (c) sperm remain maximally viable in the female reproductive tract,” she said. “It’s really interesting that lingering cognitive implications of sex ― sexual afterglow, for instance ― last for the same amount of time as the biological implications of sex.”

Meltzer said that newlyweds were singled out for the study because they engage in sex more frequently than long-term couples ― a requisite for the research.

“Our theory was based on reproduction,” Meltzer told HuffPost. “Given that newlyweds are often young and of reproductive age, they were an ideal sample in which to test our predictions.” 

In sum? Sex plays a major role in satisfaction and pair bonding, even if you’re not having sex every day of the week.

Sales Of Ivanka Trump Products Surged Last Month

Ivanka Trump’s clothing and accessories brand saw a spike in sales in February, according to the company’s president and market research data. 

Abigail Klem, who took over as president of the brand after President Donald Trump’s daughter stepped down in January, said the company has seen near-unprecedented success since last month.

“Since the beginning of February, they were some of the best performing weeks in the history of the brand,” Klem said in a statement. “For several different retailers Ivanka Trump was a top performer online, and in some of the categories it was the [brand’s] best performance ever.”

While the company does not publicly share sales figures, recent market research reports backed up Klem’s statement. 

Lyst, a British e-commerce website that sells thousands of different brands, said sales of Ivanka Trump products increased 346 percent between January and February, while sales of the brand are up 557 percent over last year. Ivanka Trump was the site’s 11th most popular brand in February, up from 550th in January. 

“To see such an extreme spike in one month is completely unheard of and came as a huge surprise to us,” Lyst spokeswoman Sarah Tanner told the BBC earlier this week. 

Market research firm Slice Intelligence, which tracks purchases from 4.4 million consumers who have allowed the firm to analyze their email receipts, saw a 207 percent increase in purchases of Ivanka Trump products between January and February. (The same firm reported a 26 percent drop in the brand’s sales in January over the same month of the previous year.) 

Amazon, one of the most high-profile retailers carrying Ivanka Trump products, did not immediately respond to a request for sales figures for the brand. However, Ivanka Trump perfume is currently the website’s best-selling fragrance.

And a company spokesperson said sales of the brand were up by 21 percent in 2016 over the previous year’s sales. 

That spike may be attributable to increased public interest in the Trump family over the last year. The February sales surge coincided with the president’s first month in office, during which Ivanka Trump made multiple high-profile appearances, including at the inauguration and the president’s address to a joint session of Congress. 

The surge also came after several stores, including Nordstrom, dropped or stopped promoting the clothing line amid calls for boycotts against companies that sell Trump family products.

Following Nordstrom’s announcement, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway urged consumers to “go buy Ivanka’s stuff.” 

“I’m going to give a free commercial here,” she said Feb. 9 during an appearance on “Fox & Friends.” “Go buy it today, everybody. You can find it online.”

Many ethics experts condemned Conway’s remarks, and the Office of Government Ethics called on the White House to discipline her for potentially violating a rule prohibiting officials from using their positions of power to promote products. However, the White House declined to penalize Conway, arguing the comment was made “in a light, off-hand manner.”

The president himself attacked Nordstrom for dropping Ivanka Trump products, tweeting that the department store chain treated his daughter “unfairly.”

Hilary Duff Spends Last Day of 2016 in a Bikini in Hawaii

Hilary Duff is saying goodbye to 2016 with a splash!

The Younger star, 29, was spotted hitting the beach in a two-piece in Kauai. Her Hawaiian island vacation included swimming in the ocean with friends and even catching a few waves on a surfboard.

The Disney Channel child star-turned-TV actress — who recently called it quits with her boyfriend of about two months, personal trainer Jason Walsh — shared a positive (and beachy!) message with the upcoming new year.

“Happy #nye #2017,” she captioned a photo of the phrase, “Everything is going to be awesome!” drawn in the sand.

RELATED VIDEO: Hilary Duff and Boyfriend Jason Walsh Split

Last month, Duff opened up to the hosts on The Talk, and said she was too young when she married Luca’s dad, NHL star Mike Comrie, in 2010. The couple finalized their divorce in February 2016.

“I was 22 when I got married. I’m now divorced, I have a 4-year-old — I wouldn’t change any of it for the world,” Duff admitted to the co-hosts.

Duff explained that in her early 20s, she had “so much, so young” which made her “feel really ready to get married.”

“However, I don’t think we were mature enough to stick it out,” Duff revealed.

One Tear-Jerking Last Look At Michelle Obama’s Best Outfits Of 2016

We spent a large part of 2016 celebrating Michelle Obama’s legacy and trying our best to ignore the imminent end of her tenure as first lady. She has done a great deal to help distract us from the latter, blessing the masses with arguably her best dressed year yet.

Sure, FLOTUS has had too many incredible style moments to count over the past eight years, but she really turned it out for the farewell tour. This rose gold Atelier Versace moment serves as proof. 

Nothing can prepare us for the dark day looming in the distance when she passes along her title and the slew of best-dressed opportunities that come with itto the incoming first lady. But as they say, it’s better to smile because it happened than to cry because it’s over.

It’s in that spirit that we present 11 of Michelle’s best looks of 2016, which we intend to scroll up and down over and over again for the remainder of this year.

5 Things You Didn’t Know About ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’

As summer approaches, all we really want to do is what you did in years past. Or, you know, get Jennifer Love Hewitt to talk to us about her iconic role as Julie James in the 1997 slasher, “I Know What You Did Last Summer.”

Here are some stories JLH told The Huffington Post about the horror flick:

1. The famous scene where Hewitt yells in the street was thought up by a fan who got to tell the actors what to do.

TK TK gifs

According to Hewitt, a fan who loved horror movies “got the chance to come to the set and choose a moment in that movie for somebody to do.”

Hewitt said that it was never supposed to be her line and she wasn’t supposed to do the iconic scene originally. In her recollection, the fan said, “I think that she should stand in the middle of the street and spin around and say, ‘What are you waiting for?'” When Hewitt was told about this scene she responded, “You want me to what?! How am I going to look like a normal person doing that?”

Now the moment is a “really sweet memory” for Hewitt and has a special place in her heart. “People don’t know that that was just like some kid who loved horror movies,” said Hewitt. “I’m glad I got to do that for him.”

2. Hewitt didn’t know that Freddie Prinze Jr. and Sarah Michelle Gellar were going to end up together.

i know what you did last summer

Prinze and Gellar would eventually get married in 2002 — half a decade after the movie came out — but at the time of “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” Hewitt didn’t see the inklings of a lasting relationship just yet.

When asked about it, Hewitt laughed and said she was “just trying to make it through [her] first lead role” and wasn’t concentrating all too much on those two.

3. “I Know What You Did Last Summer” was based on a book.

i know what you did last summer

“I Know What You Did Last Summer” is based on a book with the same name. There was controversy at the time the movie came out as the original story wasn’t intended to be a slasher.

Hewitt eventually read the book, but “way after the movie.”

4. Hewitt was actually really scared while filming the movie and had trouble sleeping.

TK TK gifs

Hewitt said her young age contributed to this and explained a specific instance of terror involving the villain. “So, three o’clock in the morning, you’re running in fog in the middle of North Carolina from a guy that you barely know, with a hook on his hand,” Hewitt laughed. “You’re supposed to be scared out of your mind.”

The filming sometimes affected her sleep schedule as Hewitt explained, “There were definitely days where I went home and was like, ‘I’m supposed to be asleep now. I don’t think that that’s going to happen.'”

“There were definitely moments where it felt actually scary, but it was fun.”

5. Filming the escape scenes from the killer led to real bruising.

i know what you did last summer

“I was bruised a lot from falling and chasing and running,” Hewitt admitted.

Hewitt said that it was “a lot of hours” and “a lot of work,” but still thought the process was “just kids sort of playing around, but doing this really important big thing.”

All images from “I Know What You Did Last Summer” unless otherwise noted.

This interview took place as part of Hewitt’s promotional tour for Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula, which she has used throughout her current pregnancy.

Here’s How To Get Every Last Bit Of Peanut Butter Out Of The Jar (This Is Genius)

The worst, worst, worst, worst, worst thing about peanut butter is the construction of its jar. Nothing else is bad about peanut butter; it’s one of the world’s most divine edibles. It satisfies a salty craving, it makes for exquisite sandwiches and it can help keep you full for long periods of time.

But, when you reach the last licks of a jar (which is devastating on its own), the remnants of the nutty spread are near impossible to wrangle. No utensil is agile enough to scrape the remaining bits, and not even a toddler’s hand is slim enough to fit all the way through the jar. In most cases, this quandary results in tossing out the jar while there’s still some perfectly good peanut butter inside. It doesn’t feel right, but it seems there are no other options.

Worst. Thing. Ever.

But there are alternatives to discarding the jar while there’s still a bit of nutty goodness leftover. In fact, there are two tricks. We’ve already discussed overnight oats, which soak up the peanut butter into a mixture of oats, milk and other delectable toppings to craft a perfect breakfast. But overnight oats require patience and a bit of elbow grease. For instant gratification, saw the jar in half. Really!

crack open pb
Facebook/Chandler Bolt

Hallelujah, right? It’s so simple, so obvious in hindsight. Just locate an X ACTO knife or a regular kitchen knife and carefully slice the jar in half on a cutting board. Be careful not to scrape your hands on the rough plastic edges. Of course, this trick won’t work with glass jars (sad). You could smash it against a wall, but then you’d be eating more glass shards than peanut butter, and from a medical perspective that just isn’t safe.

Opposites Attract, But It May Not Last, Unless…

Most couples can name several ways in which they’re opposites: neatness versus sloppiness; extroversion versus introversion; being high-strung versus laid-back preferring city versus country living, etc. And I’m sure you have something in mind that’s specific to you. It’s true that quite often and in many respects, opposites attract. But those areas can either help you thrive as a couple or destroy you!

Look at it this way: To the extent that you see or prefer things in an opposite way, you always have a choice. You can allow those ways you’re opposite to destroy you or be a constant and endless source of trouble for you by demanding that your partner be just like you; or you can help them to morph into some of your greatest strengths. The key to the latter is to recognize that your differences can give you a much greater range and perspective as a team than you could ever have on your own

The choice is yours. Couples, who use those opposite characteristics optimally, operate with four eyes and four ears, rather than negating and making each other wrong — which will create a perpetual and perhaps unresolvable conflict.

Here’s an exercise to help you look at the items where you are opposites in your relationship: Have a lighthearted (as opposed to hostile) discussion about all of the ways in which you recognize yourselves as being opposite. Make a list of all those opposite traits or preferences that you are able to recognize. Then, review your list, assigning a plus (+) or a minus (-) next to each item you’ve identified to indicate whether your opposite trait is a positive or negative factor in your relationship. Couples who take the time to do this thoroughly are usually quite surprised to find that most of their opposite traits actually serve them! (Obvious examples: One loves to cook; the other hates to but loves to eat; one is a good money manager, the other is inept at handling finances; one is a very strict parent, the other is quite liberal.)

For example, one couple I worked with demonstrated a common example. His idea of a vacation is to go someplace warm, and lie on the beach or at a pool. She loves vacations where there is lots to do and see. In fact the more her schedule is crammed with activities when she is away, the better. They fought so bitterly about their vacations that they spent several years not going away at all, despite the fact that they could well afford to. Their solution: vacations where each could do what he or she wanted. Sheila found a few handpicked activities John would enjoy, so he wanted to join her. John could spend the vast majority of his time during the day doing what he wanted — while Sheila was partaking of the rest of the sights. They both believe that this simple effort changed the entire climate of their relationship for the better, by defusing a chronic issue.

Now take a look at each item that you have identified as negative and discuss a strategy to use that opposite trait to your advantage.

No matter how opposite you may be, chances are there’s common ground. Your challenge is to find it, rather than making your partner wrong. Consider that common ground as the strength that can help you to convert those parallel tracks to ones that are convergent! Couples who commit to doing this are usually delighted to find that they do make a great team — even though it may never before have been apparent — simply because they learned to complement one another.

This novel contains scenes of graphic violence and is intended for adult reading. Jeff Bravis walked away from the minimum security federal prison camp on a visiting day, drove from the parking lot in a car he paid a guard to leave for him with the keys in the visor. He switched the car for a Jeep he stole in the casino parking lot in Lincoln City, Oregon and drove down the coast with one thought in mind. He had to find out where the key was to his deceased father’s safe, and an ex-CIA agent holed up in the jungle had a clue. This one-minded pursuit would lead Jeff to Central America with as diverse a group of thugs as had ever congregated for one mission. The techie genius who didn’t care who got blown up along the way, as long as he could feed his desire to play and win at Texas Hold Em.

And finally Jeff’s high school buddy Eddie and his girlfriend, fresh from stealing high-end cars in Southern California. Follow them into the jungle of Guatemala, each in search of their own personal treasures, and all claiming to be there only to aid Jeff find his elusive key. Some of them will never return to the United States alive, but they’ll all do their part to make sure it’s the other guy who dies.

Twilight’s Last Gleaming

Twilight’s Last Gleaming


The larger issue of defining hegemony and dominance has gained a greater importance over the last dozen years. Whether addressed explicitly or implicitly, it is the issue that lies behind the many recent books on international relations. The ongoing “financial crisis” has given these issues new urgency. This book provides new and startling evidence drawn from foreign exchange markets and capital flow statistics. They demonstrate that the problem dates back to the end of 2000 and has been driven by political events as much as structural economic issues. Combined with the development of a structural energy problem, the financial problem generated a global economic crisis that has not ended.In Twilight’s Last Gleaming, Edmund Clingan uses economic measurements to establish measures of political and military power. Clingan examines the changes in these measurements over the last two hundred years to establish how international power relations have been affected by changes in economic power. He considers the factors that contribute to and detract from economic power. Using these quantitative measures, he provides consistent definitions of “dominance” and “hegemony” that should become commonly used and contribute to more precise discourse in history and political science. These tools uncover the deeper issues behind the current problems of the United States.

America’s Last Real Home Front

America’s Last Real Home Front


The leadup to America’s entry into WWII was a clash between two national heroes: President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Aviator/Isolationist Charles Lindbergh. Their harsh debate was finally silenced by Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor. The author, who experienced the war as a teenager, recalls the nation’s overnight coming together, the Fireside Chats and how the American people produced the greatest arsenal in history through sheer determination. often-strained teamwork and heavy personal sacrifices. While hundreds of thousands of their loved ones were being killed or wounded overseas, some American men and women worked seven days a week. They learned to live with limited food, clothing and gasoline, accepted and paid higher taxes, salvaged everything from newspapers to kitchen grease, put up with a horribly complex rationing system and loaned their government billions of dollars in bonds and stamps. The author also lists 14 areas which may require special Home Front attention in case of another global war.
