See these fast-disappearing natural wonders while they’re still around

ADVERTISEMENT


The intricate workings of the Mother Nature are something many of us take for granted every day. However, we aren’t alone. While we want to explore the world, it looks as though we might have to get moving is we want to see these fast-disappearing natural wonders while they’re still around. Best get booking those tickets!

Great Barrier Reef

Of course, we couldn’t have the list without including the Great Barrier Reef. Found in Australia, this ecosystem stretches over 1,200 miles and consists of some of the most breathtaking sights in the world. Sadly, global warming means that 93% of the reef has been killed off already. If that wasn’t enough to scare you, it’s thought the reef might not even exist at all by 2030 if people continue the way we are.

Antarctic Peninsula

This is the northernmost part of Antarctica. Here, the ice covers up many Arctic islands that have remained hidden for so long. Already, 40% of the ice has melted. Although the melting ice will make it easier to explore these unknown lands, it is essential for many ecosystems to survive such as whales, seals, and penguins. We could soon be waving goodbye to some of these creatures if we aren’t careful.

Joshua Tree National Park

Hidden in California is this national park filled with Joshua trees. However, The Golden State has been all over the news in the last few years thanks to the many droughts from the passing summers. The desert would once receive five inches of rainfall. Now, they are getting less than one. Unfortunately, Joshua trees are struggling to reproduce. If there isn’t a substantial rainfall soon, these trees could quickly begin to fade away.

The Maldives

These are the islands that are on the front of every holiday brochure. Yes, we’re talking about The Maldives. Sadly, it looks as though we might have to take a trip soon if we want to see a slice of paradise for ourselves. The islands are set so low that rising sea levels mean they could soon be lost forever. The president of the country, Mohamed Nasheed, aims to have the country fossil fuel free by 2020. However, if that doesn’t work, they have purchased surrounding land to house their 380,000 inhabitants.

Mount Kilimanjaro Glacier

In Africa lies a mountain that was once one of the biggest challenges for climbers everywhere. However, the mountain is rapidly shrinking thanks to the melting ice cap at the summit. As the ice caps melt, the dark soil underneath is exposed. In turn, this absorbs more heat and causes even more melting. Now, it’s stuck in a never-ending cycle. Unfortunately, over 85% of the glacier is gone. Although they have been on Earth for 10,000 years, it’s believed the ice will be melted within 15 years.

The Dead Sea

Did you know this sea is ten times saltier than any other ocean on the planet? This makes it a massive attraction for tourists thanks to its many health benefits. However, the ‘80s saw many hotels crop up all along the shoreline. These have caused the sea levels to drop by 80 feet – roughly 2 billion gallons every year – as well as losing a third of the sea’s surface. As if that wasn’t enough, major sinkholes are also opening up all along the shoreline and taking even more of the beauty with it. It could be time to book a ticket before it’s gone for good!

The world is a beautiful planet, but it looks as though we might have to work a whole lot harder if we want to keep it looking so stunning. In the meantime, this seems like the perfect chance to see these fast-disappearing natural wonders while they’re still around, you don’t know what you have until it’s gone.

How to Commute to Work on a Bike and Still Look Polished

how to commute to work on a bike

If you’ve decided to be more active (and get a little stress relief), save money, and feel like you’re doing something to help the environment by no longer relying on your car to get to the office, you may be wondering how to commute to work on a bike and still look polished. We recently received a question from Reader M, who asked:

Can you do a post on professional attire for bike commuters with minimal resources? There has to be a better way than my bursting waterproof backpack, folded blazer, messy hair, and muddy shoes.
Specific issues:
– Keep dress shoes clean.
– Waterproof/helmetproof hairstyle.
– Managing sweat, rain, etc.
– Keeping my suit/dress clean.
– No cabinets to store spare clothes, hair tools, etc.
– Bike stays at a public outdoor park & ride so I must carry all my saddlebags & supplies all day.

It’s been quite a while since we’ve talked about biking to work (we’ve also discussed more specific topics like backpacks for commutinghow to stay cool on your commute, and how to lighten your load), so today we’re sharing advice from me — a lawyer in a midsize Midwestern city who rides a bike for exercise and occasionally commutes to the office by bike — and Corporette® reader (and CMoms writer) April, who has commuted to work on bike both in NYC (because it was faster than public transit) and to the train in New Jersey (both for the exercise and to enjoy the outdoors). 

Here are some key tips on safety, equipment, where to store your bike, how to plan for a smooth ride, and other tips for how to commute to work on a bike:

This post contains affiliate links and Corporette® may earn commissions for purchases made through links in this post. For more details see here. Thank you so much for your support!

Remember: Safety First

“Safety is number one,” says April. “ALWAYS wear a helmet, learn the rules of the road, don’t bike with headphones in, yield to cars, always assume cars CAN’T see you, anticipate pedestrians stepping off curbs, attach a bell to warn people or don’t be afraid to use your voice.” Speaking of yielding to cars, I still remember the season of The Real World that featured a bike messenger — it clearly showed that car doors can be a bike rider’s worst enemy — and I still get nervous when passing parked cars, just in case the person inside decides to open the door into the bike lane without looking first.

Even though bikes can range in cost from a couple hundred dollars into the thousands, most bike accessories with safety in mind are extremely affordable. Bike bells start at about $ 5 at Amazon, and lights available as a set of front and rear for as low as $ 24, according to this roundup from Bicycling. Of course, like any sport or hobby, there are more expensive versions of these accessories, as well as GPS guidance and cameras.

Another safety concern is weather — always check the weather forecast before heading out. If it’s is going to be too cold or if there’s rain in the forecast, bring proper rain gear, wear layers, and take a change of clothes for when you get to your destination. (It’s OK to skip a day or two if it doesn’t seem safe; see below for an article about riding year-round, even in extreme weather.) 

How to Choose a Bike

April prefers a Dutch-style commuter bike with a low step-over bar, higher handlebars and a larger seat for comfort, and a wire basket in front. “I chose that bike because I’m not a super skilled biker, so I wanted to be able to step off of it easily,” she says. “No clip-in pedals or leaning over the handlebars for me, thanks. It is a good bike for paved roads and if you don’t have to lift it. It’s somewhat heavy and has larger tires (but not so large like a beach cruiser). I was looking for ease of ride mostly.”

Meanwhile, I appreciate my single-speed. Compared with a previous mountain bike, it’s extremely light for long rides around town, but it wouldn’t necessarily be an ideal commuting bike with its high bar and limited space to add a basket or other accessories to carry extra gear to or from the office. But for someone more used to this kind of bike, it’s good for a workout on mostly level, smooth surfaces during dry riding conditions.

If you’re not sure which type of bike is right for you, there are several factors to consider, including cost, your comfort level on different styles of bikes (high bar, low bar, kickstand, no kickstand, tire tread, etc.), and what accessories are already included (or can be easily added). The best way to know if a bike is a good fit is to ride it for yourself. If you have a bike shop in your area, they’ll be able to best match you to a bike and might provide you with a loaner. They might also have good suggestions on where to find the best path — whether it’s via bike lanes or less-traveled city streets. However, there are also several bikes available to ship directly to your home on Amazon and other outlets. Some brands even include deals with local bike shops who’ll put the bike together and adjust it for you if you don’t feel comfortable assembling it yourself.

For commuting, also consider fenders that’ll protect you and your clothes from extra mud and water that sprays up from the road. If your bike doesn’t have fenders, you’ll likely get grease on your legs/clothing, which is never a good look for the office and doesn’t wash out easily. (My bike doesn’t have fenders — and I have the permanent grease stains to prove it.)

If you’ll be riding between dusk and dawn, also be sure to have a headlight and a tail light — many states require at least a front light, including New YorkCalifornia, and Illinois. A quick internet search can find removable accessories that can be attached with just velcro strips if you’re not comfortable with making permanent alterations. See articles below for more suggestions about specific equipment.

How to Store Your Bike

“The locking was one of the biggest sources of anxiety for me both in the city and leaving my bike at the train station all day,” says April. “If my bike were to ever be stolen, I could walk home from each commute, but if you’re biking farther than walking distance, then be sure to have a back up plan.” It’s worth noting that it may also be an option to bring your bike (or part of it, like a wheel) inside with you.

To learn about your options for bike parking, check around at the office with your building manager to see if there is a private space to store your bike, or if it is OK to keep it in your office. Some cities even have gyms that cater to bike commuters, including bike valets, while some parking garages offer areas that are reserved for bikes.

Make Sure to Plan Ahead

Of course, it’s easier if you can just “dress on the casual side of business casual,” like April would, but the articles about bike commuting we’ve included below suggest either bringing an outfit in your bag to change when you get to the office, or keeping a spare outfit at the office just in case. It’s also a good idea to wait until you get to the office to apply makeup (or choose waterproof makeup for your bike commute). Because of the extra time it’ll take you to freshen up, it goes without saying you’ll have to plan extra time for the commute. There is also the option of bringing some extra face wipes or whatever you prefer to wash your face for a quick clean-up when you get to work.

“I felt like biking took a lot of foresight… into what I would wear, getting my bike ready to roll out the door, the weather, the clothes, whether I was going to court. To my logical brain, sometimes it really was not worth the effort, but those perfect weather days where the wind is in your hair, you’re not squeezed into the subway like a sardine, and you get home in 5 minutes makes it worth it,” says April.

Readers, what are your thoughts on how to commute to work on a bike? If you’ve thought about riding commuting to work on a bike for a while but haven’t yet, what part is holding you back? If you’ve already been commuting to work on a bike, how’s it going? What have you done — or wish you had done differently? What part of biking to work appeals to you the most — the exercise, the environmental impact, or a hatred of other commuting options like long drives in traffic or hot overpacked subway cars?

Mick Jagger Said He’d Rather ‘Be Dead’ Than Sing ‘Satisfaction’ at 45. Now He’s 75 and Still Playing It

The following feature is excerpted from LIFE The Rolling Stones: Their Rock ‘n’ Roll Life, available at retailers and on Amazon.

Of the many things that Mick Jagger has said in public—aside, that is, from the lyrical improvisations and the onstage declarations he has made across more than 2,000 live performances over 56 years—among the more enduring is this bit of bravura from 1975: “I’d rather be dead than sing ‘Satisfaction’ when I’m 45,” he told People magazine. Jagger was 31, and he and the Rolling Stones had recorded the game-changing single 10 years before, in the early stages of a decade in which the band reframed the blues, the British Invasion and rock ’n’ roll itself. The hubris of Mick’s comment, the implication that there were other worlds to be conquered and, more ominously, that the Stones might leave behind the world they had forged, struck the metaphorical chord. “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” was the band’s axe-grinding soul: Keith Richards came up with the hook and the title while drifting to sleep one night and recorded it, bare bones, on a cassette player by his bed. Jagger later wrote the lyrics poolside at a Tampa hotel while the band was on tour. Add drums. Add bass. Book it at 3:45. When the song landed in America in June of ’65, it went to No. 1 and stayed there.

Jagger certainly was singing “Satisfaction” at age 45 (actually he’d just turned 46), snapping it out as a set-closer on the Stones’ bristling Steel Wheels tour in 1989. He was singing it onstage in 2015 as well, as a guest of Taylor Swift, who was born in 1989. Over the many years, Jagger’s “I’d rather be dead” pronouncement has evolved away from arrogance and toward happy irony. He and Richards both turn 75 this year, and as the Stones opened their 2018 tour, with dates in the U.K., there was “Satisfaction” on the set list—the predetermined final encore, the classic and quintessential rock ’n’ roll song.

Despite the portentous demise of guitarist Brian Jones in 1969 and the band’s historical fondness for hard drugs, despite the departure of backbone bassist Bill Wyman in the early ’90s, and despite the Keith-vs.-Mick feuds that have long dotted the landscape, time has remained improbably on the Rolling Stones’ side. They’re not only still together, they’re still more or less doing what they’ve always done. Their latest album, 2016’s Blue & Lonesome, by way of example, is made up of covers of songs written by the same folks the Stones were covering 50-some years ago—blues colossi like Willie Dixon and Howlin’ Wolf.

And of the 19 songs that anchored the 2018 tour, 17 of them were Jagger/Richards numbers composed during the 1960s and early 1970s, soul-lifters off of one monumental album after another (Beggars Banquet, Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers . . .) Another song on the list was 1981’s “Start Me Up,” which, along with “Satisfaction” and “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” hinges upon one of the Richards riffs that have burrowed unstoppably into auditory history. Keith, in 2018, is still out there on his Fender, after the sound. Mick is still glorious: preening and plaintive. Charlie Watts still swings, driving the action, cool on his simple kit. And that’s still Ronnie Wood playing the tasty guitar. Ladies and gentlemen: the Rolling Stones.

They’ve aged of course, to be sure, and some fans grumbled about the U.K. shows. A ticket at 250 quid? Reviewers allowed that there were some imprecisions in the gigs, some softened edges. Yet by and by the crowd and the critics could not help themselves. They’d been elevated. And they were acutely aware, as the old Stones ripped through the songs that will never die—“Sugar,” “Shelter,” “Sympathy”—that even now you could see and hear straight into their beating hearts. Straight into the heart of, yes, that’s right, wait for it, the greatest rock ’n’ roll band in the world.

Or if he could tell that I was staring, following him to his car, and peering in the window to see if Ms. Spears was there, too. After all, we were traveling from and to the same places: from the Borgata Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, where the pop star just performed three shows in her Piece of Me tour, to New York City, where she will perform two nights at Radio City Music Hall.

UPDATE: 27 more people sickened by Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal, retailers still selling it

A month after a voluntary recall was first issued, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) says another 27 people have fallen ill in 19 states after eating Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal tied to a salmonella outbreak.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration says the contaminated cereal can still be found for sale at some retailers.

RELATED: Recall alert: Salmonella outbreak linked to pre-cut melon sold at grocery stores

100 cases now tied to Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal recall

The CDC has reiterated its call for people to stop eating the cereal and for stores to stop selling it. One hundred case have now been tied to the June 14 recall of an estimated 1.3 million cases of Honey Smacks cereal.

In fact, two more states have reported outbreaks — Florida and Colorado. That brings the state count up to 33. You can see a map that shows all states where people have been sickened by the cereal here.

As a reminder, the recall involves 15.3 oz. and 23 oz. packages of Kellogg’s Honey Smacks cereal with the following UPC codes:

kellogg recall cereal UPC

If you already have any of these products at home, do not eat them. Throw the cereal away and visit Kelloggs.com/HoneySmacksRecall for info on getting a full refund.

According to CNBC, the recall was initially prompted by 60 reports Kellogg Company received from the FDA and CDC about illnesses related to the cereal.

The third-party manufacturing facility that made the cereal has stopped production.

Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause symptoms such as fever, diarrhea (which may be bloody), nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, and may even be fatal in young children, frail or elderly people. In rare cases, Salmonella can cause more severe illnesses such as arterial infections (i.e., infected aneurysms), endocarditis and arthritis if it gets into the bloodstream.

Nicki Minaj Did NOT Send Cardi B A Gift Basket After Giving Birth – Feud Is Still On!

The feud is still on! It looks like the reports Nicki Minaj sent her nemesis Cardi B a congratulatory gift basket after she welcomed her first child, daughter Kulture, were actually fake.

According to an insider, the bad blood between the two rappers is not about to be stopped, not even by a cute, innocent newborn.

‘Nicki has no plans to congratulate Cardi anytime soon on her baby with Offset. Nicki has mixed emotions about the relationship with Cardi, things are really complicated and at times tense between them,’ the source told HollywoodLife.

As you know already, Nicki has been the reigning queen in the rap industry for years, but after Cardi gained unimaginable fame all of a sudden, it looks like she dethroned her!

That being said, the 25-year-old former stripper managed to become only the second female rapper in history to get a number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

It was her song Bodak Yellow that helped her reach star status, and ever since then, Cardi has continued to rise higher and higher in the industry.

‘Nicki feels competitive with Cardi and has no need to try to kiss her butt with baby gifts. Nicki wants to keep her edge when it comes to Cardi, so she hasn’t sent over any silver rattles or other gifts for her new baby,’ the source also told the outlet.

It appeared as if the feud was close to its ending after The Blast reported yesterday that Minaj sent Cardi a $ 5K gift basket containing products from high-end West Hollywood children’s shop Petit Tresor.

It was reportedly filled with clothes, plush toys, organic pampering items, top of the line products and a sterling silver rattle.

But it turns out that the gift thing was nothing more than a rumor as TMZ claims they contacted the store and found out neither Nicki nor anyone on her team had bought anything from them.

Venus Williams Is Still in the Game—On and Off the Court

Venus Williams has tuned out all manner of distractions on her way to becoming one of the most successful women to set foot on a tennis court. But on a recent June morning in downtown New York City, there was no competing with the doe eyes of her 11-year-old Havanese, Harry, as he peeked his head out of her backpack. “Hi, good morning again,” Williams cooed as she buried her face in Harry’s fur. “You’re awful cute, aren’t you?”

As Harry gazes at her, Williams snaps back to attention and explains why, at age 38, with seven major tournament titles, a successful clothing brand and an interior-design business to her name, she keeps grinding away on the tennis tour. “I think you see some players, they’re clearly not playing well and they can’t keep up and they just can’t compete,” Williams says. “This is not a problem that I have.”

Williams is putting it modestly. More than two decades after her pro debut and seven years after being diagnosed with Sjögren’s syndrome, an autoimmune disorder that causes pain and fatigue, Williams is still among the game’s elite. In 2017 she reached the final of two Grand Slam tournaments and a semifinal of a third. This season has been rougher–she fell in the first round at both the Australian and French Opens. But if history is any guide, Wimbledon, which starts on July 2, could be the antidote.

The manicured grass of the All England Club has been particularly kind to Williams. Aided by her knack for running down balls on the fast surface that sneak past other players, she has won the singles title five times and, paired with sister Serena, the doubles title six times. (“Those titles count,” Williams says, smiling.) Those matches included some of the most memorable in recent history, including the three-set classic over Lindsay Davenport in the 2005 final and her straight-set triumph over Serena in ’08. Last July, Williams became the oldest Wimbledon finalist since Martina Navratilova in 1994.

Wimbledon is significant for another reason: it’s where Williams took a stand for equal prize money that helped the women achieve pay parity with the men. The day before she won the 2005 title, Williams addressed the Grand Slam Board, made up of executives from the four major events, in the boardroom at the august All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club. At that time, only the U.S. Open and the Australian Open offered equal prize money for men and women; Wimbledon and the French Open were still holding out. She gazed at the tennis pooh-bahs and asked them to close their eyes and follow her on a thought experiment. “You feel like you’re going against people who maybe have made up their minds already,” Williams says, recalling the moment. “I felt like I had to say something that was very humanizing because these people on the board, they have mothers, they have daughters, they have sisters. They have to remember that these women who are not getting equal prize money are mothers and daughters and sisters. You have to look at it that way, or else you might not be able to see through it.”

In April 2006, the French Open announced it would close its pay gap and offer both champions the same prize money. Wimbledon, however, stood firm. So Williams took her crusade public, writing in a June 2006 op-ed in the Times of London: “I feel so strongly that Wimbledon’s stance devalues the principle of meritocracy and diminishes the years of hard work that women on the tour have put into becoming professional tennis players.”

Williams’ crusade helped convince British Parliament to take up the issue. Prime Minister Tony Blair called for equal prize money. In early 2007, Wimbledon changed its policy. “It all happened so quickly,” Williams says. “We all thought we were going to fight for a lot more years.” This year the men’s and women’s champions will each earn around $ 3 million.

The debate, however, still rears its head. Rafael Nadal, who won his 11th French Open title in June, recently suggested that there can be reasons for pay disparities in a field. “Female models earn more than male models and nobody says anything,” Nadal told an Italian magazine. “Why? Because they have a larger following. In tennis too, who gathers a larger audience earns more.” When I read Nadal’s comments to Williams, she declined to return serve. “I don’t know anything about modeling,” she says. “I guess that’s a metaphor that makes sense to him.”

Williams is well aware that the pay gap is far from closed outside of tennis. American women earn 80¢ for every dollar taken home by men. “There’s still a lot of work to be done,” says Williams. “But men have to want it just as much as women. That’s very important. We have to raise our sons in a way that that we see women as equals.”

Looking back on the push for equal pay, Williams says she is an unlikely trailblazer. “I’m not necessarily a person who’s looking to be a leader in the middle of a crowd,” she says. “My job puts me in the middle of the crowd, but it’s not really how I live my life. But I’m also the kind of person that if you start a fight with me, then trust me, I’m going to end it. Don’t start anything with me.”

A decade ago, few would have wagered that the Venus and Serena would still be playing competitive tennis, let alone thriving in tournaments. They were rare talents, sure, but critics said the sisters had too many outside interests. And many wondered how Williams would be able to continue to play at the top level after her Sjögren’s-syndrome diagnosis. Williams did explore life beyond the court. She earned degrees in business and fashion design. “Not being more than an athlete was considered a failure in my household,” she says.

But it turns out that in refusing to pile up on tournament appearances in their 20s, the Williams sisters were able to flourish into their 30s. “It’s about planning a smart schedule,” says Williams. “A lot of people didn’t do that. Mental burnout is just as bad as physical burnout. Maybe worse.”

At last year’s Wimbledon, Williams broke down in tears after a reporter asked her about a incident that had occurred weeks earlier, when she was involved in a car accident in Florida that took the life of another car’s passenger. In December, police cleared Williams of any criminal wrongdoing. The deceased man’s family has filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against Williams, who declined to talk to TIME about the case.

Pundits have written millions of words, and filled hours of airtime, explaining the meaning of the sisters to their sport, and society at large. Williams is far less inclined to do the same. Asked how she would describe her impact, Williams deflects introspection like an errant ball. “Oh my gosh, I have to work on my wide serve,” Williams says. “Why am I not moving faster? Those are the things I think about. I don’t sit back and reminisce on any achievement, because that’s the past. And I don’t live in the past.”

There’s No Good Reason For Scott Pruitt to Still Have A Job

Scott Pruitt is a wart on the Trump administration—an embarrassment so comically corrupt that it’s become impossible to keep track of all the investigations into his unscrupulousness.

Scott Pruitt is also teetering. And if the president had any long term strategic vision, he would recognize that a reckoning is coming for his EPA chief—an inglorious final fall from grace—and that Pruitt’s exodus will ultimately be good for his administration.

Everyone else sees this. Pruitt’s traditional allies are fleeing. In recent days, Senator Joni Ernst said that Pruitt is “about as swampy as you get here in Washington, D.C. And if the president wants to drain the swamp, he needs to take a look at his own Cabinet.” Fox News Research has calculated Pruitt’s lavish spending, and dubbed his EPA the “(E)xpensive (P)ruitt (A)gency.” Meanwhile, the Washington Examiner’s Byron York and Tim Carney are calling him out.

Jimmy Kimmel Found a Bunch of Adults on the Street Who Still Live With Mom and Dad

A 30-year old New York man recently made headlines when his parents were forced to sue him to get him to finally move out of their house. While the man in question prepares to appeal the judge’s decision to evict him from his parents’ home, Jimmy Kimmel decided to head to the streets to find out how common it is for full-grown adults to still live with their parents.

He revealed the results of his informal poll of passersby on Wednesday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! turning it into a game where the audience would be briefly introduced to a person and then try to guess whether or not they still live at home. Turns out a lot of adults still live with their parents, in fact, his own audience harbored a mother and son who were still co-habitating.

Apple Watch still dominates the market, but there’s a surprising amount of competition

Apple Watch

It’s now been more than three years since the original Apple Watch hit store shelves and Apple still hasn’t disclosed any sales figures for its increasingly popular wearable. While Apple isn’t likely to change its strategy in this regard anytime soon, company executives over the years haven’t been afraid to boast about the popularity of the Apple Watch while avoiding any mention of precise sales figures.

Case in point: Tim Cook during an earnings conference call this past March said that Apple Watch Sales during the 2017 holiday quarter were record-breaking, no doubt fueled by the popularity of the Apple Watch Series 3 and the inclusion of LTE connectivity on select models.

80s Movies That Still Hold Up Today

We love movies from the 1980s often for nostalgic reasons. Ferris Bueller’s Day Off remains a favourite because it is so evocative of the era in which it was made. But if the same film was made and released today, would it still be met with such enthusiasm, and held in such high regard? Perhaps not. Not without a huge overhaul anyway. So which films from the 80s still hold up today? Here are  our picks.

1. The Terminator (1984)

A cyborg assassin comes back from the year 2029 to wipe out a threat that will one day affect the future. It’s the basic premise of James Cameron’s The Terminator, in which Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-800 is on a mission to kill Linda Hamilton’s Sarah Connor, mother of Resistance leader John Connor, who would one day lead an uprising against the sentient machines.

But it’s also a premise with echoes of the plot of the recent Deadpool 2. Undoing events via time travel is also crucial to the plot of Avengers: Infinity War. It’s a device that’s as significant and popular today as it was back in 1984 when The Terminator was first thrilling audiences. It’s, in part, because of this that The Terminator still holds up today.

2. RoboCop (1987)

In 2014, a remake of Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 original starring Joel Kinnaman was unleashed on the world. But Verhoeven’s tale of a superhuman cybernetically enhanced police officer keeping order in a crime-ridden near-future didn’t need the remodeling treatment.

A science-fiction classic, RoboCop is smart, shockingly violent, satirical, and – crucially — still pertinent, exploring as it does the effect of the media on society, and putting capitalism and authoritarianism in the spotlight. And since we’re talking Deadpool 2, and cybernetic characters, Josh Brolin’s similarly enhanced futuristic supersoldier Cable has parallels with Murphy’s armoured cop. Like The Terminator, the themes explored in RoboCop are topics we’re still obsessed with today.

Plus, Murphy has a female partner who’s pretty awesome — Nancy Allen’s Anne Lewis. So it gets extra recognition for its ahead-of-its-time progressiveness. If you haven’t watched RoboCop in a while, it’s time to revisit it.

3. The Color Purple (1985)

In 1985, Steven Spielberg was best known for his blockbuster fare. There were the Indiana Jones films, as well as Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind and ET. So when he adapted Alice Walker’s historical novel about African-American women in the Deep South in the early 1900s, audiences and critics were surprised.

Spielberg’s film focuses on a young black girl named Celie – played by Whoopi Goldberg in her film debut – who we see through the passing years endure abuse at the hands first of her father and then of the other men in her life. The story ends on a positive note, with Celie and her female friends transcending the racism and misogyny they’ve suffered.

The messages of the film are as relevant today as they were both when the film was released and the 1982 novel written, not to mention the time in which the story is set. Standout performances from a cast that includes Goldberg, Oprah Winfrey and Danny Glover help make The Color Purple as hard-hitting in 2018 as at any other point in the intervening years.

 4. Blade Runner (1982)

Ridley Scott’s iconic neo-noir sci-fi is still influencing pop culture today. The recent Netflix series Altered Carbon is just one example that owes a debt to the mesmerising imagery of Scott’s adaptation of the Philip K. Dick novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? 

Set in a dystopian Los Angeles, the story revolves around Harrison Ford’s Rick Deckard, the downbeat cop tasked with hunting down a fugitive group of synthetic humans known as replicants. It’s so highly regarded that it took more than 30 years to generate a sequel. Arrival director Denis Villeneuve took the helm of that film, Blade Runner 2049, and managed the near-impossible, pulling off a follow-up that was well received by critics.

Themes, cast and performances, and the ageless aesthetics of the original all contribute to its standing today as one of the greatest sci-fi movies of all time.

5. Stand By Me (1986)

Based on a short story by Stephen King, Rob Reiner’s Stand By Me is a period piece, made in 1986 and set in 1959. The means that a dated ’80s aesthetic typical of a bunch of comparable titles from the decade is absent, making the movie feel timeless. This sense of timelessness is bolstered by the device of narration – the story is told in flashback through the eyes of a grown-up Gordie Lachance (Richard Dreyfuss) recounting a tale from his youth, on the discovery that his childhood friend Chris Chambers has been stabbed to death.

The story he tells is of the misadventures, trials and tribulations of his group of friends, a foursome consisting of River Phoenix’s Chambers, Corey Feldman’s Teddy Duchamp and Jerry O’Connell’s Vern Tessio, in addition to his younger self, played by Wil Wheaton. They head off in search of the body of missing local boy Ray Brower in the hope of becoming local heroes.

While it replicated the dynamic of the group of youngsters in 1985’s The Goonies, unlike that film it stands up to the scrutiny of today’s sophisticated audiences. While The Goonies has bags of retro appeal, Stand By Me is a film with arguably more substance. And also delivers a spirit that titles like Stranger Things and Andy Muschietti’s 2017 adaptation of Stephen King’s It strive to capture today.

6. Blue Velvet (1986)

Watch David Lynch’s nightmarish crime-thriller today and it’s no less disturbing. The much-discussed scene in which Dennis Hopper’s Frank terrorises Isabella Rosselini’s Dorothy Vallens while inhaling a mystery substance hasn’t lost any of its impact.

If anything, the film is all the more surreal and disturbing with the passage of time. Its abstract nature, the idyllic surface of its small-town setting punctured by a very Lynchian dark underbelly, and an indefinite time period make it a film that defies categorisation and will forever remain in our minds. Blue Velvet has influenced a bunch of directors, from the Coen brothers to Tarantino – and will no doubt continue to inspire a new generation of filmmakers.

7. Honey, I Shrunk the Kids (1989)

Director Joe Johnston went on to helm Jumanji, Jurassic Park III and Captain America: The First Avenger, but it was Honey, I Shrunk the Kids that marked his directorial debut.

The film starred Ghostbusters star Rick Moranis as the inventor who accidentally shrinks his children along with the kids next door, then throws them out with the trash. It represented a breakthrough in special effects, showing as it did the quarter-inch tall kids battling insects and otherwise innocuous now-giant garden hazards to get back indoors and back to normal size.

While the effects might be nothing to write home about today, the story is charming and one that is absolutely as entertaining, appealing and relevant today. With last year’s Downsizing borrowing extensively from Johnston’s 1989 hit and Ant-Man and the Wasp gearing up to hit screens later this year, it’s clear that shrinking down to teeny-tiny size is still very much a theme that Hollywood, and audiences, care about.

The 70-Year-Old Trends You’re Still Wearing Today

Our favorite part about looking at what people wore 50, 60, or 70 years ago is not the ability to point out what’s so different about our styles. We’re much more interested in our similarities. And recently one particular decade of fashion history made us realize just how little has actually changed when it comes to the ebb and flow of fashion trends. In fact, we’d be willing to bet that a lot of the styles you emulate today were the same ones women in the 1940s wanted to wear, too.

The decade itself saw a wealth of iconic looks, including Katharine Hepburn’s penchant for high-waisted trousers and tailored pieces, as well as Dior’s New Look, which came in the later part of the decade but forever remained a fashion reference. And there’s much more beyond that.

Take a look ahead at just a sampling of the 1940s fashion moments that speak directly to modern women, and shop some pieces inspired by it.

Up next, take a look at a love-it-or-hate-it style decade with an influence that can still be felt today: the ’80s.

Jay Leno Is Worth $350 Million and Owns 181 Cars But Says He Still Lives Like Someone Who’s on Their Last Dime

Jay Leno got rich by being America’s class clown. The comedian has an estimated net worth of $ 350 million, largely thanks to his tenure as the host of The Tonight Show, which he left in 2014. He’s still cracking jokes, but now he does it on Jay Leno’s Garage, which started as a web series and is now in its fourth season on CNBC (airing Thursdays). It follows Leno’s one true splurge: collecting prized and pricey cars. We talked to him about the money tips he’s picked up from his auto obsession, how he started his standup career homeless, and the one thing he tells every comic who’s trying to make a buck telling jokes.

You were extremely scrappy when you started in comedy. In Leading with My Chin, you wrote about being homeless and telling jokes to police when they picked you up off the street.

[Laughs] Yeah, I did. I just got on a plane one day and went to Los Angeles. I looked in the paper for open houses, say, from noon to 4 p.m., and I would get there at 3:30, and then I would hide in the closet. The realtor would leave and lock the door, and now I had a place to stay. Sometimes I could stay in a house two to three days. I didn’t wreck anything. I did get picked up twice for vagrancy on Hollywood Boulevard. In fact, where I got my [Walk of Fame] star was where the cops picked me up. They’d put you in the back of the car, and they’d drive you around their entire shift, and then let you out in the morning.

They must’ve been used to that on Hollywood Boulevard.

I would tell the cops jokes, and most of the cops are pretty blue-collar guys. Once they realized you’re not dangerous, you’re not a crazy person… “You find a place to live yet? No? Okay, get in the back.” It was okay. They were nice guys.

How’d you become a car geek, anyway?

I grew up in Andover, Massachusetts, which was a pretty rural area when I was a kid. There were always broken tractors, lawn mowers, vehicles you had to fix. I remember somebody had abandoned an old Renault in a field when we were about 11 or 12. We would drive it around the backyard. Your mom would kind of watch through the window. Of, course now they’d call child services, and the parents would be taken away. Back then, it was seen as not a bad thing—it taught you how to fix cars and get things running. I never set out to collect cars. I just bought what I liked. The general rule of car collecting is if you’re reasonably astute and you understand how things work, if you like it, chances are other people will like it, too. My three things are: It should be of technical and historical significance. It should be fun to drive. And it should be attractive to look at. If an automobile has those three qualifications, then it’s probably something that would be considered collectible.

Jay Leno's Garage - Season 3
Walker Dalton—CNBCJAY LENO’S GARAGE Season 3

There’s a lot of speculation out there about your vast car collection. Exactly how many do you own?

About 181 cars, and about 160 motorcycles.

Do you have any idea what they’re all worth?

No. I know individual ones. I bought a McLaren F1 in ‘99 for $ 800,000, and the last offer I got was $ 17.5 million. They only built 64 of them.

Are there any cars you look back on and think, “I wish I hadn’t bought that”?

There’s this thing in the car world: “You didn’t pay too much, you just bought it too soon.” There are a couple there. I don’t really dwell on them too much. If you buy something that’s rare and valuable, it will always be rare and valuable.

Jay Leno with his car collection
Charlie Nucci—Corbis via Getty ImagesJay Leno in his garage with his McLaren F1

How often do you sell the cars?

I’ve never sold a car [Laughs].

Ever?

I will donate a car to charity. We’ve done that probably 10 or 15 times.

Your passion for cars is palpable. Is there anything else you don’t mind dropping serious dough on?

You know, there’s really not. It’s obviously not clothes. I’m not an experienced person. I know I’m pretty wealthy, but I live like someone who’s on their last dime. I take nothing for granted. I don’t take vacations. When you’re in show business, you get to go to vacation places. I enjoy doing philanthropy stuff. I like feeling like if I don’t work this week, I’m gonna go broke. People say, “Why do you work all the time?” I go, “What do I do on a Tuesday that’s worth this kind of money?” A job comes up, and I always feel like I was broke for so long, I never wanted to be in the position of, “Well, how much is that job? Oh no, I’m not…” It just seems so presumptuous to turn down.

You still have that hustler mentality.

Yeah, and I like being a piecemeal comic, the idea of write joke, tell joke, get check. I don’t do HBO or Netflix specials because I can make almost the same money doing a live show. Why not just do four or five live shows instead of giving something away on TV?

Jeff Vespa—WireImageJay Leno arrives in his 1909 Baker Electric car at “Revenge Of The Electric Car” Premiere held at Landmark Nuart Theatre on October 21, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.

So no eight-figure Netflix special for you.

It doesn’t interest me. I’m not saying that to be snobby. It just doesn’t appeal to me because once your joke is on TV, it disappears forever. I always think, “Did this person just hear me say this last night?” I always know where my act is. I control it.

You came into quite a lot of money as a famous comedian. What did you learn about spending money from that?

I never spent money before I had it. I never bought anything before I could afford it. I never bought anything on time. I don’t lease vehicles. Cash is king.

You’re not risky with your income.

I work and my money relaxes—that’s the way I look at it. I live pretty frugally. I’m a huge believer in low self-esteem. The only ones with high self-esteem are actors and criminals. I’m dyslexic. My mother would say, “You’re gonna have to work twice as hard as the other kid to get the same thing,” and that always seemed like a fair tradeoff. The nice thing about being dyslexic—people tend to focus on something and then that becomes their goal. That always worked pretty well for me. I’ve always had two jobs, and I lived on one job and banked the other. All through The Tonight Show, I never touched a dime of my TV money because TV money is fleeting money. When you’re a comedian, you can always generate income. You can always stand somewhere and tell jokes and get paid for it. In college I would go to what they used to call hootenanny night and I would put $ 50 on the bar. I would say to the bartender, ”Let me go up and tell jokes. If I do good, give me my $ 50 back. If I do bad, you keep the $ 50.” Eventually you could make $ 15, $ 20 bucks a night by doing that.

What do you say when you talk to a young comedian who’s coming up and reaching for the kind of career you’ve had?

My advice is just take the job. Don’t worry about how much it pays. I’m always astounded when I meet comedians who go, “I’m not going there for that kind of money,” and I go, “Who are you? You haven’t done anything. No one knows who you are.” If you’re any good, the money will come. Pay attention to your product. If you’re not making enough money, it’s ‘cause you’re not good enough.

I spent almost a year at the Comedy Store asking to go on after Richard Pryor. No one wanted to follow Pryor because he just blew the room out. He was really the best. After that, I realized I didn’t have an hour of material. I had about 18 minutes of really funny material. I just kept throwing out everything that wasn’t funny.

Despite Black Panther’s Success, Black Content Creators Still Can’t Get Projects Funded

While the cultural impact and box-office success of Black Panther has proven that it is in movie studios’ best financial interests to fund and produce diverse films with diverse casts and perspectives, the general consensus at Black Public Media’s first Story Summit was that black, independent content creators still have a long way to go in getting their projects funded.

Within three months of DeShuna Spencer launching KweliTV in 2015, the interactive platform that exclusively steams independent films and web series curated from the African diaspora received nearly a thousand subscribers and 7,800 registered users. Since then, Spencer has attended, pitched, and won numerous competitions over the past three years but the venture capital she’d been looking to raise still hasn’t materialized. One of the white venture capitalists that had agreed to meet with her even pressed her on the need for her platform.

“Don’t you guys have BET?,” he asked.

Spencer wasn’t surprised at all. Growing up in Memphis, Tennessee, as a young girl she had been told she didn’t look like she was from Africa. As a teenager, she had seen ads on television asking for donations for black African children who looked like they’d been instructed to gaze into the camera with their suffering eyes and almost always had flies around them. If she had seen the ads, she was sure her schoolmates had seen them too, which is why she takes her mission of diversifying black stories very seriously.

Spencer, who is bullish about her work, said content creators need to show something different: “Keep pushing and when it’s [the film project’s] done, we’ll get it on KweliTV.”

I do take it personally when it comes to telling and curating our stories,””Spencer told a packed room at the Google offices in New York. City

The ultimate question posed to the panelists on Diversifying Blackness at Black Public Media’’ first Story Summit: how does the black community grow its selection of black stories about black people that studios are willing to take on?

For Shukree Tilghman, its about access and power.

The root of making influence is about having power. You really have to have full control. When you’re running your own show, you get to bring in your own people,” said Tilghman, who joined NBC’s critically acclaimed show This Is Us as a writer in 2017.

To go from an independent filmmaker to being funded, Tilghman, who has contributed to numerous film and television projects, said investors also need to find smart people whose projects have already been funded by organizations like Black Public Media (BPM).

Founded in 1979 to encourage the development of films and television programs about the black experience, Black Public Media has provided seed money for filmmakers such as Spike Lee, Julie Dash, Stanley Nelson, Shola Lynch, and Byron Hurt early on in their careers.

Angela Tucker, a film producer and director in New Orleans, whose 2017 dramedy Intersection was funded by BPM, said creators just need to tell their own stories truthfully. “There are stories I’d like to tell that I won’t be able to, because of funding,” she said. Tucker, whose projects had never been funded as an individual said it not only helps filmmakers make their dreams come true, but that it also gives them confidence—to create more.

Apple’s battery replacements still havn’t made everyone happy

Apple battery replacement program cost wait time

Late last year, Apple admitted that it has been throttling performance on older iPhones with worn-out batteries. The admission won Apple a legion of bad press and enough lawsuits to keep its legal department in fancy cars for the next decade. Since then, Apple has mostly appeased its customer base with a discounted iPhone battery replacement plan, some promises to be nicer, and the requisite CEO prime-time soul-searching interview.

But Apple’s problems aren’t over. BBC’s Watchdog program, one of TV’s longest-running consumer advocate programs, aired a deep dive into Apple’s battery replacement program this evening, and the results aren’t exactly glowing for Apple.

Parkland and Sandy Hook Shooting Survivors’ Emotional Summit: ‘I Can Still Taste the Gunpowder’

Noam Galai/Getty

Five years ago, Mary Ann Jacob was working in the library at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, when a gunman began shooting at students. She quickly moved a filing cabinet to block the library entrance and shepherded the 18 eight- and- nine-year-olds in her class into a supply closet, where they hid until the massacre—20 young students and six faculty slain—was over.

When Jacob met teenage Parkland shooting survivors, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students Dylan Kramer and Ryan Deitsch, before they spoke as part of a panel at the Tribeca Film Festival Sunday afternoon, she gave them a high five.

“You probably thought that was the weirdest thing anybody’s ever done,” Jacob said at the panel. “The biggest gift we got as survivors was when the survivors from Columbine came and visited us a month after the tragedy.” Looking at the boys and then to the audience, she continued, “It’s like being thrown a lifeline, where we met people who were further along in their journey than us and were able to say, ‘I’m still alive.’”

More Mortgage Loans Being Approved, But Blacks and Hispanics Still Likely to Be Denied

There is bittersweet news on the home loan approval front for African Americans, a new report reveals.

Mortgage loans are denied at the lowest rate in the past 20 years, but a stark divide remains between potential home buyers of different racial groups, according to online real estate firm Zillow.

The share of applicants nationally who are denied for conventional mortgages has dropped to 9.8%, according to data from the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA), down from 18.1% in 2007.

Though a smaller portion of loan applicants overall are rejected, white or Asian borrowers are more likely to get mortgage approval than black or Hispanic borrowers.

In 2016, 8.1% of white applicants were denied for a conventional loan, as were 10.4% of Asian applicants.

In contrast, 20.9% of black borrowers and 15.5% of Hispanic borrowers were rejected for a loan. The report showed blacks are still twice as likely as whites to be denied a conventional loan, a racial gap disparity that has existed for decades. The gap is significant because owning a home can help most people, regardless of race, accumulate assets to boost their net worth.

Yet another report uncovered the wealth gap between black and white families across the country is not improving.

One finding disclosed African Americans are less likely to be homeowners, to own their own business, and to have a retirement account than whites.

In 2016, based on the most recent data available, when African Americans owned such assets, they were worth significantly less than assets owned by whites. For instance, 41% of African Americans were homeowners in 2016, versus nearly 72% of whites. Furthermore, blacks who did own homes had half as much home equity as whites.

For all groups, the Zillow report identified denial rates are down sharply from 2007. For that year, 34.3% of black applicants and 30% of Hispanic applicants were denied for mortgages. White and Asian borrowers were denied 12.7% and 16.2%, respectively, of the time.

The lingering disparity among races is visible in homeownership. Black homebuyers had the least purchasing power last year. They could afford 55% of homes for sale, while whites could buy about 78% of listed homes.

And while coming up with a down payment is the biggest hurdle to homeownership for all potential buyers, black Americans were more likely than those of other races to say qualifying for a mortgage was a barrier.

“Mortgage approval data point to both progress and stubborn inequities in the American housing market,” said Zillow Senior Economist Aaron Terrazas.

“By some measures, the gap in mortgage approval rates between whites and blacks is as narrow as it has ever been.

However, black mortgage applicants are still more than twice as likely as whites to be denied, a visible legacy of historical discriminatory policies. For the large majority of homebuyers, getting approved for a loan is the first step on the road to homeownership, and these continued disparities represent an ongoing barrier to housing and social equity in America.”

Another interesting discovery surfaced in the Zillow report. For all racial and ethnic groups, borrowers in suburban areas had the best chances of being approved for a mortgage—8.4% of suburban homebuyers were denied for a loan. Ten percent of urban borrowers and 11.5% percent of rural borrowers were denied.

Apple and Google Have Ditched Their Realistic Gun Emojis. Only 1 Company Still Uses It

There’s only one major company that is still using a gun emoji after Google and Facebook both followed the lead of Apple and other tech companies that switched from a traditional firearm to a toy water gun emoji.

Microsoft is now the lone platform that still uses a standard pistol emoji following Facebook’s switch and the release of new water gun emojis on Android systems this week. Microsoft did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fortune asking if the company had plans to make the update as well.

Interestingly, Microsoft had originally been the first of the companies to use a toy gun emoji resembling an alien ray-gun of sorts, dating back to 2013. But the company opted to switch to a realistic-looking revolver in 2016 as part of a redesign.

So what happened to the gun emoji? Many companies began ditching the handgun symbol following a wave of mass shootings and terror attacks. Calls for gun safety and reform have only intensified as part of the national conversation following the Parkland, Fla. school shooting in February, which consequently birthed the #NeverAgain movement.

In 2016, Apple led the pack and was the first company to switch its gun emoji to a water gun, which has since been replicated by the other big tech players.

Ryan Seacrest will still be hosting E!’s Oscars red carpet amid sexual abuse allegations

But how will it go down on the night?

Ryan Seacrest

US TV presenter Ryan Seacrest is a staple of award show season, hosting the E! network’s coverage and interviewing A-list celebrities on the red carpet.

While the Oscars 2018 is one of Ryan’s busiest gigs, with his red carpet interviews being a regular Academy Awards fixture, there was talk that they might be axed this year, after sexual abuse allegations against the 43-year-old emerged.

It was announced this week however that Ryan would stay at the helm of the show as scheduled, after a ‘comprehensive and thorough’ investigation.

Kicking off #eredcarpet with a @thechainsmokers collab. You watching? #grammys

A post shared by Ryan Seacrest (@ryanseacrest) on

The allegations in question came from a former E! News wardrobe stylist who reported to Variety that Seacrest had behaved sexually aggressively towards her for years, something that Seacrest has denied.

‘Much has been said about the #MeToo and Times Up movement(s) and the importance of providing women and men with the opportunity to share their stories of workplace misconduct, in an effort to change our culture and the systemic inequalities that exist,’ Ryan announced in a previous statement. ‘I absolutely support this cause unequivocally and applaud all the brave souls who have come forward to share their stories.’

Legends. #eredcarpet #grammys

A post shared by Ryan Seacrest (@ryanseacrest) on

He continued: ‘Sadly, last fall I became one of the accused, which I promptly revealed proactively to the network involved and to the public. And to be equally clear, those accusations were then investigated by an independent third-party over the course of a two-month process and involved dozens of interviews that included me, the accused and countless others. Ultimately, my name was cleared. I eagerly participated in the investigation in order to demonstrate my innocence because I know my truth, and I believe in due process.’

E!’s investigation was extremely comprehensive and thorough,’ the network announced in a recent statement. ‘Over the course of a two-month process, our outside counsel interviewed more than two dozen people regarding the allegations, including multiple separate meetings with the claimant and all firsthand witnesses that she provided. The investigator is an attorney with nearly 20 years experience and is highly regarded professionally. Any claims that question the legitimacy of this investigation are completely baseless.’

Confirming Ryan Seacrest’s return to his 2018 Oscars hosting duties, the network confirmed to The Cut on the same day that the red carpet pre-show would go ahead as planned on Sunday.

‘I don’t want to accuse anyone of not telling the truth,’ Ryan announced, addressing the accusations, according to The Wrap. ‘But in this case, I have no choice but to again deny the claims against me, remind people that I was recused of any wrongdoing, and put the matter to rest.’

Jemele Hill on ‘The View’: I Still Believe Trump Is a ‘White Supremacist’

ABC

There is a reason Jemele Hill has not deleted the tweet that almost got her fired from ESPN. Five months later, it’s still live on her account: “Donald Trump is a white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.”

“I did not expect in that moment that it was going to become what it became,” Hill said during a stint as guest host on The View Wednesday morning. In the days and weeks that followed, she was condemned by both ESPN and President Trump, and White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders called her comments a “fireable offense.”

Asked by co-host Meghan McCain if she still stands by what she said—and whether she thinks Trump’s supporters are white supremacists—Hill replied, “I still stand by what I said,” but adding, “I don’t think that his supporters are white supremacists.”

Cheryl and Liam Payne are still battling for approval to turn their £5m family home into a ‘mega-mansion’ despite crisis talks over their relationship

CHERLY and Liam Payne are reportedly still battling for approval to turn their £5million family home into a “mega-mansion” – despite crisis talks over their relationship.

The couple, who are preparing to split, have submitted numerous planning applications to extend the house they share with baby Bear in Working, Surrey.

And despite the former One Direction star seeking legal advice over a split, the pair are said to be determined to carry on with major renovations to double the size of the property, according to MailOnline.

Liam, who is worth an estimated £54million, purchased the house for £5.1 million back in 2015 and submitted plans for a garage area, which would have been home to his collection of expensive supercars.

The extension would also include an entrance to the house, an indoor pool and a new guest house – increasing the building’s volume from 93.37m3 to 199m3 – or a whopping 133 percent.

According to the newspaper, Woking Borough Council refused permission in October, ruling: ‘The proposed single storey side and front extensions represent a disproportionate addition over and above the size of the original dwelling and consequently constitutes inappropriate development within the Green Belt.”

The pair are said to be appealing that decision, with a public notice listed on the council website as recent as February 9.

Last year, we revealed that the couple were granted permission to make some major renovations to their six bedroom country pad.

Despite Cheryl being pregnant at the time they forewent building a nursery and instead converted three garages into a giant snooker room as well as building a big underground gym and swimming pool.

The planning appeal comes as pals say 24-year-old Liam began re-evaluating their romance as his solo career began taking off.

He also realised their relationship was doomed when Cheryl kept dismissing his talk of marriage.

A source said: “Liam is smitten with his little boy and wants things to work between him and Cheryl, so thought talk of marriage was a positive step.

“But she just doesn’t seem to be thinking in the same sort of way and has made it clear that’s not on the cards at the moment, which he saw as a real snub.

“The reality is his solo career has been very demanding on his time and Cheryl has spent a lot of time alone as a new mum.

“That’s put pressure on her and the relationship and they’ve drifted apart.

“Nobody is sure if they’ll be able to pull things back from the brink.”

Yesterday Liam appeared on Capital FM’s breakfast show but made just one reference to Cheryl — while debating which football team Bear will support.

Meanwhile, pals have claimed that Cheryl had tried to get Liam to stop talking about Bear or her in interviews, and that his failure to stop had put strain on their relationship.

‘Bachelor Winter Games’ Recap: Ben Still Isn’t Over Lauren

Let the games begin! Couples began forming one day one of The Bachelor Winter Games! The cast, comprised of 14 players from various international versions of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette and a dozen American contestants, had no problem overcoming cultural barriers to do everything they could for a chance at love. The twist is they have to compete in Olympic sports against each other to win dates, and of course, it wouldn’t be a Bachelor spinoff without rose ceremonies. Here are the biggest moments from the newest ABC show.

Ben Still Isn’t Over Lauren

Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell may have called off their engagement eight months ago, but it seems like Ben isn’t over it quite yet. “That was the happiest day of my life,” Ben said about when he proposed. “The breakup still hurts.” He claimed he’s ready to “turn the page” and was working hard to schmooze all of the ladies in the house. “I’m hoping for that spark,” he said. “I want to be in love again.”

Josiah Compliments Ally’s ‘Badonkadonk’

Josiah, who was featured on Rachel Lindsay’s season of The Bachelorette, knows he is “physically blessed” and is trying his hardest not to be arrogant during the Winter Games. However, he couldn’t help but compliment Ally, a previous contestant on the New Zealand Bachelor, about her figure when the two got to know each other a little better.

“We like that badonkadonk,” he told her. “Black men, we like the curves.” His comments obviously worked, because they ended up sharing the first make out session of the games. Even though neither of them won the biathlon later to get to go on a date, it looks like these two didn’t need a fancy dinner to get some one-on-one time. “I could see myself being with Ally,” Josiah said.

Ashley I. Cries … Again

Ashley I. might have a strong personality, but at least she is self aware! “I have a big reputation for being dramatic,” The Bachelor alum said.  From day one, she thought the only possible reason Kevin, a Canadian who Bibiana was flirting with, didn’t like her was because the cold air was making her skin dry and ugly. When Kevin won the biathlon and took Bibi on the date, Ashley’s signature water works made an appearance.

“I just don’t know what I’m doing,” Ashley sobbed. “Why does this always happen?” It looks like some things never change.

Lesley Gets Candid About Her Boobs

After her Bachelor experience, Lesley discovered she was at a high risk of breast cancer and chose to have a double mastectomy. She got her boobs reconstructed and is proud of the way she looks, but is nervous because she hasn’t been with a man since her surgery. “I’m a bit apprehensive to really dive in with someone,” Lesley said. “It’s a little bit nerve wracking.”

However, she wasn’t afraid to talk about it when flirting with Dean. “You can be the judge,” she said. “I think they look great.” The two ended up making up on the couch, so her comments obviously worked.

Christian Feels Left Out

It didn’t take long for couples to form from night one. Kevin and Bibi, Lesley and Dean, Josiah and Ally, Courtney and Lily, Luke and Rebecca and Clare and Benoit all made out almost immediately. “People are already pairing off and we’ve only been here a couple hours,” Luke said. It made some people, like Christian, the competitor from Germany, nervous for the rose ceremony.

“I’m really sad,” he said, even though multiple women have commented on his good looks.

The Rose Ceremony

Chris Harrison revealed that the rose ceremony would be going down very differently this time: the men had to write down the name of the woman they felt wasn’t there for the right reasons, and the women had to do the same for the man they felt wasn’t there for the right reasons. The three women and the two men with the most votes would be going home.

Laura Blair, Zoe Tang, Lauren G., Courtney Dober and Eric Bigger were sent home. It’s definitely an interesting spin on the traditional rose ceremony process that requires the contestants to get to know their fellow housemates.

The Bachelor Winter Games airs Tuesdays and Thursdays on ABC at 8 p.m. EST.

Still Planning Your Super Bowl Food? Let Sunny Anderson Help

Whether you’re tuning in for the commercials, or you’re watching for the celebrities, unless you’re still boycotting the NFL and skipping the big game altogether, you’re going to need to get your Super Bowl food plans together. Like now.

Food Network host Sunny Anderson is here to rescue you from endless hours of scrolling Pinterest for the perfect recipes. Try either (or both) or her crowd-pleasing dishes to feed the football fans in your life.

Sunny’s Easy-Win Chili 

Recipe courtesy Sunny Anderson, 2017

Serves 6-8

  • 1 pound Mexican chorizo or spicy sausage, casing removed
  • 1 pound ground chuck (80% beef, 20% fat)
  • 1 large white onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Black pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, grated on a rasp or finely minced
  • ¼ cup chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon red chili flakes
  • 1 teaspoon dry, whole leaf thyme
  • Pinch of cinnamon
  • 14 ounces (1¾ cups) crushed tomato
  • 14 ounces (1¾ cups) beef stock

1. Start the chili. In a medium pot with a heavy base or Dutch oven on medium high heat add the chorizo, beef, onions, salt and a pinch of pepper. Use a wooden spoon or potato masher to break the chorizo down into bits like the ground beef. Once the chorizo is mostly cooked and the onions are tender, add the garlic, chili powder, chili flakes, thyme, and cinnamon. Cook a few minutes while stirring to combine all the flavors.

2. Cover and finish. Add the crushed tomato and beef stock. Raise the heat until the pot boils, then lower to a low simmer and cover. Cook stirring occasionally for about 40 minutes. Serve with a toppings/pairings bar. Transfer to a slow cooker if for a party.

Anderson not only delivers he goods when it comes to what you should make for Super Bowl food, but she’s also tackled the problem of how you should serve it. A football super-fan herself, Anderson has made tailgating a bit less stressful for the host with her invention of the Infladium, an inflatable, reusable snack stadium that debuted last November and is sold at Party City stores across the country.

Here are her suggestions for what to serve with the chili when a simple serving bowl won’t do:

Fill the field:

  • Shredded rotisserie chicken
  • Corn bread
  • Baked potatoes
  • Taco shells

Fill the stands:

  • Tortillas, corn chips, tortilla chips
  • Chopped scallions, tomatoes, onions
  • Salsas, sour cream, hot sauce
  • Lettuce, corn, pickled jalapenos
  • Shredded cheeses, aluminum foil wrapped baked potatoes
  • Tater tots, radish slices, shredded lettuce, sliced black olives

If your home will be full of famished fans but the thought of actually cooking Super Bowl food is too much bear, Anderson’s also got a recipe for a cheesy dip that will save you time in the kitchen and get you back in the action in front of the TV.

Kathy Griffin Says She’s ‘Not Welcome’ at the Women’s March — but She Still Supports It

Explaining why she wouldn’t be one of the celebrities who joined millions of women (and men) across the world for a second year of the Women’s March this weekend, Kathy Griffin claimed her presence was “not welcome.”

“So, yeah, after all these months, I’m still not welcome at #WomensMarch2018 etc. (For now). But I support you!!!” she wrote on social media Saturday.

Although the comedian did not go into details about her claim, she shared her message alongside a black-and-white version of her infamous photo holding a mask of Donald Trump’s bloodied head, which seemed to imply the controversial photo was the reason she felt she wasn’t welcome.

Although Griffin initially apologized for the photo, she walked back on those comments during an interview with BBC World News program HardTalk in November when she said wasn’t sorry for sharing the photo.

“I’m not sorry. I take the apology back 1,000 percent,” Griffin said. “The reason I made the apology is when the image went out, I thought people would just think, ‘That’s Kathy doing another shocking image.’ ”

“I’ve done many throughout my entire career, and I’ve done many shocking things,” she added. “When I won my first Emmy I said, ‘Suck it, Jesus, because this award is my God now!’ And you know, the conservatives took ads out it the papers. That’s what they like to spend their time and money on. So yes, I knew what I was doing.”

Griffin went on to explain that she felt motivated to apologize originally when “good friend” Rosie O’Donnell — whom Griffin called “the preeminent expert of being trolled by this fool, ‘the Accidental President’ ” — likened the photo to Daniel Pearl, the American journalist who was beheaded in Pakistan.

“She said, ‘What if Daniel Pearl’s mother saw this?’ ” Griffin recalled. “When she said that, I thought, ‘Oh my gosh.’ I’ve never apologized for a joke. I get it.”

After the image went viral, Griffin claimed she received hate mail and death threats from Trump supporters and was put under federal investigation for two months (she remains on the no-fly list and has been detained at every airport she’s flown to since, she says). Some of her tour dates of were canceled, and she was fired from her gig co-hosting CNN’s New Year’s Eve Live show (which she had for nearly 10 years). Griffin also lost high-profile friends, including CNN’s Anderson Cooper.

Wisconsin has a massive, decade-old tornado scar that is still visible from space

tornado scar

Tornados can be absolutely devastating forces of nature, especially when they materialize over a populated area with little warning, but the destruction they bring often fades with time. That doesn’t seem to be the case in northern Wisconsin, where a 40-mile-long scar still remains from a strong tornado which tore through thousands of acres of forest over a decade ago.

On June 7th, 2007, a large EF3 tornado sliced through thick woods in the north of the state, tearing down everything in its path for 40 miles before finally sputtering to a stop. An incredible 14,000 acres of forest was lost to the twister, and as The Weather Channel points out, the area still sports a nasty gash that can be seen from weather satellites.
