Chris Brown And Rita Ora’s Fans Ship Them Big Time After They Flirt On Social Media!

People are already shipping them hard! After a bit of flirting online between Chris Brown and Rita Ora, it looks like fans are freaking out, wishing they would date already!

It all started when Chris shared a pic that featured his mother and his daughter Royalty on his Instagram account.

The two had actually surprised the singer at his Heartbreak On A Full Moon Tour’s final performance on August 5, and it was a very sweet moment.

‘ALL DAY🔥🔥🔥🔥,’ Rita commented on the pic, and now people are wondering whether she was celebrating him completing the tour or gushing about the fact that he was not wearing a shirt.

Fans seem to think it is the second possibility, especially because of the multiple fire emojis she added.

MOMMA AND LIL MOMMA SURPRISED ME ❤

A post shared by CHRIS BROWN (@chrisbrownofficial) on

chris-brown-and-rita-ora-postSource: instagram.com

One follower was quick to make it very clear that ‘@ritaora we would love to see you and @chrisbrownofficial as a couple.’

Another also thought that would be a good idea as they commented: ‘can u guys just date already🙏🏽?’

And the fact that Chris was the one who commented on one of her pics first did not escape the excited fans.

‘Lmaoooo Rita playing [Chris] commented on her picture and everything.’

As you may recall, under a pic that showed Rita in a tiny bikini, Chris wrote: ‘ROADMAN TING!!! #PENGGAL.’

In case you don’t know what any of that says, it’s British slang that means something similar to ‘hot gangsta.’

It sounds like Chris is making an effort to actually learn U.K. slang just to impress Rita, so who knows? Maybe something really is brewing between the two.

But the thing is, Rita Ora is reportedly in a relationship with Andrew Watt, so…what is going on here?

Andy Murray Breaks Down in Tears After Emotional 3 a.m. Victory While ‘Closing Time’ Plays

An emotional Andy Murray broke down in tears after pulling out a hard-fought victory over Marius Copil at the Citi Open early Friday morning.

The former world No. 1—currently ranked 832nd—wept into a towel for several minutes after defeating Copil 6-7, 6-3, 7-6 in a round of 16 match that lasted for more than three hours, and didn’t finish until 3 a.m. “It was just the emotions coming out at the end of an extremely long day and a long match,” Murray told reporters.

However, some speculated that Murray’s tears had more to do with his ongoing comeback following a persistent hip injury that kept him sidelined for nearly a year.

The tennis great is set to face Australia’s Alex de Minaur in the quarter-finals later on Friday, but said there’s a chance he won’t play. “Finishing matches at 3 in the morning is not good,” he said. “It’s not good for the players. It’s not good for anyone, I don’t think, involved in the event. It’s not good for fans, TV, nobody.”

Why Season 7 Is the Perfect Time to Learn This ‘Voltron’ Paladin Is Gay

SPOILER ALERT: Warning, this article contains major spoilers from the Season 7 premiere of Voltron Legendary Defender titled “A Little Adventure.” Proceed at your own risk.

Voltron: Legendary Defender had quite the announcement-filled San Diego Comic-Con panel this year. We learned the series will be wrapping up its story after 26 more episodes. Also, during the premiere of the first episode of Season 7, fans discovered that Shiro, the Paladin of the Black Lion, is gay.

The new episode, called “A Little Adventure,” flashes back to Shiro’s days at the Galaxy Garrison, where it’s revealed that Shiro is sick but still wants to fly on an upcoming mission. His stubbornness leads to an argument between him and his flight partner, Adam, about his decision.

That’s how we learn that Shiro is gay and in a relationship with Adam. Unfortunately, for Shiro, that relationship ends when Adam tells him, “Don’t expect me to be here when you get back.”

We learn about Shiro’s previous relationship with Adam at a time when the show is nearing its end. But that’s not a problem. In fact, the timing couldn’t be better.

We Weren’t Expecting This


Shiro, Lance, and Keith
Shiro or Klance?

While the response to Shiro’s sexuality has been positive, the moment was definitely a surprise. For one thing, Voltron has never really been about romantic relationships. Allura and Lotor developed feelings for each other and even kissed before Lotor’s betrayal in Season 6. And of course, Lance has been head-over-heels in love with Allura since day one. But other than that, the focus has been on the story and platonic relationships.

Second, a lot of fans ship “Klance” — the romantic pairing between the characters Keith and Lance. It’s become one of the most popular ships in Voltron and pop culture as a whole. With all the theories and perceived hints in the show, it seemed like Klance was going to be Voltron‘s endgame LGBTQ relationship.

And while Klance could still happen — no one’s ruled it out — Shiro being gay is the more effective choice. If Klance were to happen now, it might be seen as something the Voltron staff included because of fan requests, which could diminish its impact. Not a lot of people expected Shiro to be canonically gay, so his reveal feels more meaningful for representation.

Why Now Is the Right Time


Shiro (left) looking at the back of Adam as they argue
Shiro just wants Adam to turn around … and so do we.

We could’ve discovered Shiro’s sexuality at any point in the series, and it still would’ve been great for representation. But the fact that it’s done well into the series, after a major arc has ended, makes it even better. Shiro is already a well-established as the leader of Team Voltron — whose dark history with the Galra resulted in him being cloned.

Learning that he’s gay doesn’t change any of that. In fact, if we learned this at the beginning of the series, then it might’ve become Shiro’s defining characteristic. Luckily, it didn’t happen that way. Instead, his sexual identity is just another part of his character, and that makes the moment seem natural.

How we learn about Shiro’s sexuality is equally important. The creators decided to use a flashback instead of a big “coming out” moment with the main cast. That means Shiro being gay was a pre-series fact. It’s refreshing that his sexuality isn’t the central plot of the episode or flashback. Rather, the flashback focuses on Adam’s departure after his argument with Shiro about the latter’s mission. The creators don’t make Shiro’s sexuality a big deal, which is what makes this scene so great.

Instead of a boyfriend, the staff could have written in a girlfriend for Shiro and the story wouldn’t have changed. So the decision to include this in Shiro’s storyline is important and speaks volumes. It showcases what’s been true all along — LGBTQ representation can be included in media without taking over the character’s persona, and that’s perfectly alright.

Hollywood, Take Notes


Coran gives Shiro his new nickname
Shiro’s been a hero from the start.

Unfortunately, the way Shiro’s reveal is handled isn’t representative of most media. Some popular franchises have recently confirmed their characters to be queer, but only after their movies were released. For instance, Dumbledore from Harry Potter was recently revealed to be gay, Valkyrie from Thor: Ragnarok is bisexual, and Lando Calrissian from Star Wars is pansexual. Revealing these characters’ orientations in this manner has lead fans to criticize these films creators for tacking on token LGBTQ representation.

These franchises can learn something from Shiro, though. Right now, they seem to be doing these post-release reveals just to fulfill the pressing demand for representation, which leads to the criticism. Voltron, instead, simply dives into the argument scene with Adam and tackles Shiro’s sexuality on-screen. Other creators should follow Voltron‘s lead and include natural moments like this in their media. Doing so would allow them to break free from criticism and provide genuine representation.

Stories We Can All Relate To


Allura from Voltron
Let fans make a fuss for you.

Sure, it’s still important to have big “coming out” narratives, especially for fans going through similar situations. But unless the story calls for it, take a cue from Shiro. If you don’t make a big fuss about how to include LGBTQ representation and just do it, then fans will love it and make a big fuss for you.

It’s time to stop reaching for that pat on the back and get to work creating positive representations of LGBTQ relationships and people. That way, we can weed out the discrimination and tokenism and focus on creating awesome stories that we can all relate to. Trust Voltron, it works.

You can see how Shiro’s relationship with Adam plays out when Season 7 of Voltron comes to Netflix on August 10.

Cardi B Drops Out of Bruno Mars Tour to Spend Time with Baby Kulture

Cardi B won’t be going on tour with Bruno Mars this fall.

She was supposed to be the special guest on the last leg of the 24K Magic Tour, but has decided to spend time with her daughter instead.

Cardi welcomed daughter Kulture just two and a half weeks ago and her doctors say that the little one is unable to travel at this time.

“As of today I’ve decided I won’t be joining Bruno on tour this Fall. I thought that after giving birth to my daughter that six weeks would be enough time for me to recover mentally and physically. I also thought that I’d be able to bring her with me on tour, but I think I underestimated this whole mommy thing,” Cardi wrote in a statement. “Not only am I just not ready physically, I’m not ready to leave my baby behind since the doctors explained it’s not healthy for her to be on the road.”

“I hope you guys understand that this decision has been the hardest to make but I have to do what’s best for myself and my baby! Thank you Bruno for being so supportive and understanding,” she added.

Bruno also wrote a statement in support of Cardi’a decision:

“A message for Cardi… Most important thing is you and your family’s health. I know the fans will understand. You are absolutely doing the right thing. I also know we’ll share the stage when the time is right. We love you Cardi and we will play ‘Bodak Yellow’ every night in your honor. Please give your baby girl a hug from me and a hug on behalf of everyone on The 24k Magic Tour.”

Well, family comes first — right?

Money traps you’re falling for every time you travel

ADVERTISEMENT


There are so many hidden costs when you go traveling. It is annoying! You save up for ages, book your flights, reserve your accommodation and then that’s it, right? No. There are so many hidden pitfalls that so many of us fall into, every time we go abroad. Here are some of them.

Not reading the fine print

Often it is necessary to rent a car if your accommodation is far away from the airport, then it makes sense to get there in comfort, instead of jumping on five trains and eight buses. If you’re taking a road trip for the ages, then make sure you read all of the fine print on the car documentation, ideally before you sign and agree to the terms. Occasionally car hire companies can add insurance to the price without even asking you. Your travel finance company might even cover the cost, check their small print too!

Don’t be shy

You know that movie trope where the newlyweds are upgraded to first class, just because they are newlyweds? Yeah, we hate them too. Well, that could be you! Don’t be afraid to ask for upgrades when you get to the desk, you never know, they might give it to you for free if they are available. Simply asking if they have any upgrades available could be enough to prompt them to offer it free of charge, often upgrades are only provided upon request.

Do your research

Make sure to check out your transport to and from the airport. Sure, you know you can hail a cab here, but what about in Tibet, or Bangladesh? Not so easy. It is important to research how you will be getting from the airport to your destination; otherwise, you could end up stranded in the middle of nowhere with nothing but your birthday suit. Many travel agents will be able to put a transfer into your package if you require it.

Eat at home

Airport food is ridiculously overpriced, don’t eat there. Just, don’t. Eat your own food at home, it’s cheaper and nicer. Fine, go to the drive-thru and get a Happy Meal, just don’t eat at the airport. It’ll save you so much money. The wonderful thing about lugging a massive suitcase around is that you can fill it with stuff. Some of that stuff should be food.

Figure out how to make calls

Most of us have smartphones with WiFi capabilities. Make sure that when you’re traveling around you find WiFi hotspots and use them. Do not try and use Google Maps if you get lost, it will cost you so much money in roaming charges. One trick that will come in handy is to purchase a local SIM from the airport. This will only set you back a small amount, and it will not have astronomical roaming charges. A tip, within a tip; head to the kiosk closest to the exit, they will be paying less rent so are the most likely to have the cheapest SIMs.

Check ATM fees

If you run out of cash, which is probably likely if you’ve found a sweet street food vendor that just does the best pickled snake. Maybe not, but whatever you spend your local currency on be sure to know what the additional charge will be when you want to fill your wallet back up. Most will charge for each transaction so try to take enough out to last you a while to avoid multiple ATM visits.

Those were some tips we think you’ll find useful the next time you’re heading to a new travel destination. Make sure you plan your trip as far in advance as possible, it will allow you to budget better and avoid the hidden costs. One final piece of advice – don’t eat near tourist attractions, it is super expensive.

‘Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion’ Review: A Faithful, but Basic RPG

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past decade, or don’t watch cartoons but decided to read a review of a video game based on one for some reason, here’s a quick refresher on Adventure TimeThis colourful animated series follows the adventures of Finn, a heroic human boy, and Jake, his yellow talking dog as they roam the cutesy post-apocalyptic Land of Ooo. And it’s pretty darn brilliant.

While it’s obviously aimed at children, thanks to some silly and abstract humour, over-the-top voice acting, and surprisingly deep (and often chilling) lore, the show has managed to amass a rabid adult and teenage fanbase too.

More importantly though, its charming and colourful cartoon world of swords and hijinx is one that’s simply ripe for video game adaptations. But so far, video game-loving fans haven’t had much luck with Adventure Time.  Previous releases, such as the exhaustingly named Explore the Dungeon Because I Don’t Know! and Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?!!, felt like Cartoon Network merely slapped the Adventure Time brand onto the most basic of gaming concepts and called it a day.

A license to thrill?



Now though, fans are hoping that might change. Why? Because Bandai Namco is publishing the first ever open world Aventure Time RPG– Pirates of the Enchiridion. With the show set to air its last ever episode later this year, this game could be the perfect way to say goodbye to the land of Ooo. So, does Pirates of the Enchiridion finally do justice to Adventure Tim eas a video game adaptation?

Almost.

The game opens with Finn and Jake waking to find the Land of Ooo has flooded and transformed into a vast ocean, thanks to the villainous-but-lovable Ice King’s Kingdom having almost entirely melted. Very conveniently, the duo finds a makeshift boat nearby their destroyed home, and sets sail to find answers in this newly oceanic Ooo.

Although the sailing aspects may be Pirates of the Enchiridion‘s namesake, it’s perhaps the game’s most boring element. Initially, the sailing gives off strong Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker vibes, but it soon becomes apparent that instead of being the open world we hoped, it’s actually more like your average old-school RPG’s overworld map. And sadly, it’s just as barren.

With the exception of the odd item out at sea for Jake to grab a hold of, there is absolutely nothing of interest to interact with, and these sailing sections act as little more than a way to travel between the waypoints of the various islands around the land.

A (not so) Open World

The one that saves the sailing though, is that these sections contain some of the most genuinely charming moments in the entire game. Thanks to some brilliant performances from the show’s original cast,  we couldn’t help but smile whenever Finn and Jake broke out into song on their journey across the sea. This is reflective of what is perhaps the game’s greatest asset in general. Unlike with previous adaptations, its developers have clearly done their research to understand the show, and have made the effort to emulate the sort of story and dialogue you’d expect to see and hear in a typical episode.

Its characters feel like they do in the series, and its comedic personality is a perfect fit, which, unfortunately, is a real rarity for licensed video games.

The only fault in regards to the personality of the show – which is, let’s be honest, is the single most important element for fans – comes on the technical side, particularly in cutscenes. Although the graphics are generally charmingly cel-shaded, the animation is at times pretty janky, with lip-syncing a little off, and character’s expressions often seemingly unfitting of the situation or dialogue. Finn, for example, appears to be smiling regardless of what he’s actually saying, which is… well, a little weird.

Additionally, there’s some general freezing and juttering in the minute-to-minute gameplay, but if you came into Enchiridon expecting the quality and polish of a blockbuster title,  quite frankly, you were always going to end up disappointed.

Hey, It’s MY TURN

Outside of the sailing sections, there are two other primary modes of gameplay. Once you’ve disembarked from your boat, you control your party in very simplistic and (at times) excruciatingly linear platforming and puzzle segments. Much like the sea, it may at first look more open than it is, but you are effectively set on a very linear path. It feels like the same sort of basic video game concept that licensed titles have been doing since the PlayStation 1 era, bringing little new to the table.

Oh, and Jake can transform into a motorbike for these sections – just don’t ask where the motor sounds are coming from.

Thankfully, these bits are quick enough that they don’t often outstay their welcome. When it comes to the rest of the game, the overworld exploration wasn’t the only thing the developers borrowed from 90’s RPGs. If you’ve ever played a turn-based RPG before,  battles are going to feel all too familiar. When you encounter an enemy, everything plays out exactly as you’d expect an RPG unwilling to shake the boat would; you’re given the option for a standard attack, to use an item, such as a heart vial to recover some of your health, a block, or a special attack.

Special attacks use some of your energy points, which slowly replenish during the course of the battle, and range from simply inflicting more damage, hitting multiple enemies or causing a status effect, such as freezing or confusing. Your ultimate ability, or final attack, can be initiated once a party member takes a significant number of hits during the match, and enemies have their own elemental strengths and weaknesses.

RPG Time


Adventure Time: Pirates Of The Enchiridion Battle

Ending a match victoriously assigns each party member XP, which can eventually level them up, and you can utilise the in-game currency to upgrade your heroes’ health, attack power, defence, etc. Losing a match, however, results in you having to load from your last save or automated checkpoint. This isn’t likely to happen often, if at all, as combat is very, very easy and you’ll always have an abundance of recovery items to keep you safe. That is, unless you approach an high-level enemy with a red skull above their heads, in which case we strongly recommend you run away and return once you’ve levelled up.

Pirates of Enchiridion never diverges from established genre cliches that have existed for decades then.

Still, while it’s easier to look at this with our serious gamer hats on, what is important to take away here is that despite the show’s varied audience, Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridionis absolutely aimed at children. It sticks firmly to the RPG genre and licensed game cliches that have been present for decades, rarely straying from that path to risk presenting any original gameplay ideas. While it’ll be a great entry point to RPGs for younger fans, adults will undoubtedly grow tired of it quickly.

Is Adventure Time: Pirates Of The Enchiridion Any Good?

Although it may not be saying much, this is the most authentic representation of the series in a video game to date, and it is comfortably the best game based on the show so far. Yet, unless you are a child or somebody completely obsessed with Adventure Time,  despite its charm, Pirates of the Enchiridion will struggle to keep your attention for long.

Still, if you are a big Adventure Time fan and don’t require every game you play to be an original, stellar experience, there’s definitely fun to be had here thanks to the game’s charm and authenticity alone. For fans looking to say goodbye to the land of Ooo, you could definitely do a lot worse.

The Julia Child Foundation is giving a major award to female chefs — for the first time ever

In “news we’re ecstatic to report,’ the Julia Child Foundation has announced that it will grant the next Julia Child Award to their first female chefs ever. The organization, founded in 1995, aims to provide grants for culinary research and scholarships for those hoping to work in the food industry, and this specific award is for chefs “who have made a profound and significant difference in the way America cooks, eats, and drinks,” according to the foundation’s website.

The New York Times reported yesterday, July 17th, that the award’s first female recipients will be chefs Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken, the duo behind the Border Grill in Los Angeles.

“It’s an obvious time to recognize women,” Eric Spivey, the chairman of the foundation, told the Times. “Susan and Mary Sue have empowered women during their careers.”

Milliken and Feniger have worked together for 35 years, according to the Julia Child Award’s website. The two met when Milliken was serving as the first female chef at Le Perroquet in Chicago, and they went on to found the Border Grill. Today, their restaurant has three locations throughout L.A. and one at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. In addition to being the first female recipients, Feniger and Milliken are the first team to win the award.

Milliken told the Los Angeles Times that she had always admired Julia Child, saying “I remember feeling like she was such a professional and somebody I would love to emulate.” She added that she was “blown away” that she and Feniger are the first female recipients.

“Maybe we’ve reached a time where people are actually being a little more cognizant of how embedded the whole boys club is in the culinary world and how it needs to get shaken up,” she told the Times. 

Feniger and Milliken will be honored on November 1st during the Food History Gala at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History. In addition to receiving an award with their names engraved on it, the honorees will be able to choose a food-related charity to which the foundation will donate $ 50,000.

We’re stoked to see female chefs getting the recognition they deserve. Hopefully this is a sign that the “boys club” of the culinary world is coming to an end. Congratulations to Milliken and Feniger!

There are times when your spending can get away from you, and it can make for a stressful time when all your bills start piling up at the beginning or end of the month. Many people find themselves in a bit of a bind when their landlords are expecting rent, so what are you supposed to do if you don’t have the proper funds sitting in your account on collection day?

Should you try to ignore the problem and hope your landlord won’t notice you’re a day or two late? Should you send a check you know is going to bounce or “forget” to sign it because you know it’ll cause a delay? Probably not. There will likely be consequences if you’re caught (like late fees), and there are other ways you can solve this problem.

In this post, we’ll discuss four things you should do when you know your rent is going to be late.

1. Tell Your Landlord Your Rent Will Be Late

Barring extenuating circumstances, like if your bank account is hacked and drained or other unforeseen financial emergencies, you should know within a couple days of your rent due date whether or not you’ll have enough money to cover it. The moment you know you won’t be able to pay on time, inform your landlord.

Any notice you can provide your landlord with will work in your favor because it demonstrates your willingness to be transparent and to take responsibility for the late payment. The worst thing you can do is try to sneak a late rent payment past your landlord because they will likely notice you’re late, and you will have shown them that they can’t trust you.

Explain your situation to them and do it in an honest and concise way. They’ve probably heard every excuse in the book, so just take responsibility rather than giving them a sob story.

2. Discuss the Possibility of Partial or Delayed Payments with Your Landlord

Informing your landlord that you’ll be late on your next rent payment opens up the opportunity to negotiate a payment plan.

Some landlords are willing to accept partial payments, usually where you pay part of the total rent amount on the day it’s normally due and then the rest when you get your next paycheck.

Other landlords are willing to accept a late rent payment if they’ve been given some notice and you pay it within one or two days of the due date.

Keep in mind that your landlord can still charge you a late fee for late rent—odds are there’s a clause in your Residential Lease that explains the late rent procedure and states the amount of the fee. However, being candid with your landlord might increase the chance that they’ll waive the late fee altogether.

Just remember, if you come to alternative arrangements with your landlord, you should get it in writing just in case. It’ll help prevent the possibility of any disputes with your landlord later.

3. Consider Re-evaluating Your Budget

It doesn’t hurt to take a look at your budgeting efforts, especially if not paying rent on time is becoming a common occurrence for you. You might need to re-evaluate what your wants, needs, and wishes are and how they play out in your monthly budget.

You don’t want to make a habit out of being behind on rent because your landlord has every right to serve you an Eviction Notice if you’re consistently paying late.

4. Ask for Help with Your Finances if You Need it

Most people will experience some kind of financial turmoil at least once in their lives. Don’t be afraid to ask for help.

Many people turn to payday loans when they’re in a financial jam, but these kinds of loans can often start a revolving cycle of taking out more loans to pay off the original loan.

Before resorting to payday loans, consider some of these alternatives:

  • You can ask friends or family for a loan (which you can secure with a Promissory Note to put them at ease).
  • If federal student loans are causing your financial trouble, you can always apply for a deferment plan that puts a hold on your monthly payments for a limited time.
  • If credit card debt is your issue, you can ask your credit card company about their hardship programs to see about lowering your monthly payment.
  • You can apply for a Modest Needs grant which can get you up to $ 1000 one time to help make ends meet provided you are currently employed.
  • Organizations like 211.org can connect you with local charities to help you out with rent assistance.

Finding a Payment Solution

If you’re unlucky enough to have a drained bank account come rent time, don’t be discouraged because you can’t find a way to pay. Consider using the tactics discussed in this post to help with your problem.

Don’t try to be sneaky with your landlord. It’s likely they’re keeping track of which tenants haven’t paid on time and who’s making a habit out of it. Communicate openly and honestly with them about your situation, discuss alternative payment plans if possible, re-evaluate your budget, and ask for help if you need it.

Kala festival, Albania: party time in what feels like a paradise

A new arrival on the festival circuit, Albania is tempting younger holidaymakers to dance on its beaches and explore beyond its pristine shores

Just how seriously the Albanian ministry of tourism was taking Kala festival – the first international event of its kind in the country – became clear the moment we stepped off the boat at Saranda to find a police escort waiting to accompany our coaches on the winding, mountainous transfer. That and the arrival of prime minister Edi Rama the following day, for an impromptu poolside press conference with the organisers at our hotel.

10 Funniest MCU Moments of All Time

In 2008, the only superhero movies we knew were schlocky, uneven fairs like the X-Men and Spider-Man franchises and the gritty, clouded worlds of Christopher Nolan’s Batman movies. Then Iron Man hit theaters. The first entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe hit theaters in a big way, not just because of its tribute to comics as a medium, but because of how it brought levity and comedy back to the genre. It was a revelation in its time and only set up a precedent for movies to come.

Since Iron Man, the MCU has become more confident in its comedy and has only gotten funnier. With over 20 films in the universe so far, there have been hundreds of hilarious moments, so it’s impossible to count them all.

We gave it a shot though. Here are FANDOM’s picks for the 10 funniest MCU moments.

“Nothing goes over my head”



Guardians of the Galaxy

Nobody was sure how most aspects of Guardians of the Galaxy were going to land, but one of the most intriguing was to see how WWE wrestler Dave Bautista would portray Drax the Destroyer. The character was ill-defined in the comics and Bautista had never acted on the big screen, so we definitely had some questions. When the movie introduced the idea that Drax’s people took everything literally, it was a shining moment of brilliance and Bautista was able to run with it. His now-famous rebuttal, “Nothing goes over my head. My reflexes are too fast. I’d catch it,” cemented Drax as the comedic surprise of Guardians, but also cemented Bautista as an actor to watch.

When Hulk crushed Loki



The Avengers

Loki’s going to appear a lot on this list, partially because it feels cathartic to watch the villain become the butt of the joke. After fighting Loki for the bulk of The Avengers, he finally gets what’s coming to him in an epic Hulk smackdown. He can gloat all he wants and taut about his power, but when it comes to the Hulk, he’s nothing but a “puny God.”

Shawarma



The Avengers

The MCU has, arguably, two influential post-credits scenes. One is of course at the end of Iron Man with the introduction of the Avengers Initiative. The second is at the end of Avengers. The team has defeated Loki and their own egos to save the world. So they get together to relax in a shawarma restaurant and just sit in absolute silence. It’s awkward and uncomfortable. They’re exhausted after the harrowing battle, so it makes sense that as the scene goes on, it gets even more awkward and uncomfortable. It’s still an unexpectedly hilarious bit that began the MCU’s trend of innocuous and comedic post-credit scenes.

Trying to pick up Mjolnir



Avengers: Age of Ultron

Avengers: Age of Ultron isn’t as solid a flick as a lot of its MCU counterparts, but it does include one of the franchise’s funniest scenes and, eventually, punchlines. The first act of Ultron contains a lot of levity, including the post-party drinking session, which sees our heroes try to lift Thor’s hammer. It’s a great way to see how close everybody is to “worthy” and Thor’s reactions to Cap jiggling the hilt just a bit. However, the payoff comes in the third act, when Vision picks it up without any effort. Thor’s silence is almost worth the price of admission.

Captain America’s “patience” speech



Spider-Man: Homecoming

Spider-Man: Homecoming is filled with hilarious moments, but its most memorable comes following the credits. Thanks in part to the “Shawarma” sequence in Avengers, after-credits scenes became irreverent and almost pointless, but in the best way, and Homecoming might have the most “disappointing” one. Throughout Homecoming, Captain America appeared in cheesy PSAs aimed at high school students. In this one, he addresses the movie-going audience personally, telling them that patience is an important virtue, even though “sometimes it leads to very little.”

“He knows how much I like snakes”



Thor: Ragnarok

This exchange is probably the ultimate example of director Taika Waititi’s unique brand of dry, subverting humor and in a sense, it sums up the movie. Like any siblings, Thor and Loki squabble. A lot of that fighting leads to possible world-ending consequences, but sometimes it just ends in adorable mischief. During Thor: Ragnarok, as the Revengers (title pending) discuss whether to accept Loki into their group, Thor recounts a tale from their childhood when Loki, knowing how much Thor loved snakes, transformed himself into one and stabbed him. Hemsworth’s animated whispering as both Bruce Banner and Valkyrie look on in befuddlement, followed by Loki’s slight chuckle, make this not only a defining moment for the two Asgardians, but one of the most quietly funny moments throughout the entire MCU.

When Bruce Banner jumps from the ship on Asgard



Thor: Ragnarok

Yes, it’s another moment from Thor: Ragnarok, but we can’t help if it’s one of the funniest movies in the MCU. In this one, Thor is fighting Hela’s minions in Asgard. Bruce knows that the Hulk would be a huge help so he gets ready to jump from the ship hovering over the Bifrost. He pumps up the moment to Valkyrie, who by this time hasn’t made the connection between the scrawny guy in a blazer and her big green friend. The audience is also ready for the transformation as Bruce jumps — only to slam onto the ground and crumple into a heap of broken bones and groaning. It’s the Hulk’s best entrance since “I’m always angry.”

“I’ve been falling for 30 minutes”



Thor: Ragnarok

Last Ragnarok moment, I swear! Thor is on the hunt for his father and he has the answers he’s looking for after talking to Doctor Strange, but he needs to get his brother back first. Strange releases Loki from portal hell, but his reaction to falling for so long is unexpected. Waititi revels in subverting audience expectations with childish reactions or mundane reactions and Loki’s recounting of the time is a bit of both.

“What are those?!”



Black Panther

We weren’t sure what to expect when we set foot in Wakanda for the first time, but just because it’s isolated doesn’t mean it can’t be modern. Shuri immediately stole our hearts in Black Panther, not just because of her confidence, intelligence, and loyalty to her family, but her ability to take a years-old meme and make it funny again.

“It is truth serum!”



Ant-Man and the Wasp

The Marvel films have plenty of supporting characters that are able to stand out despite not getting into a pair of tights, but Luis manages to beat him all. The former cellmate and current business partner of Scott Lang has a lot to say, which sometimes leads to him going off on montage-filled tangents when attempting to tell simple stories. Those tales stole the show in the first Ant-Man but Ant-Man and the Wasp takes it to a whole new level when Luis is given “not truth serum,” leading to his best rant to date. It’s filled with wigs, flashbacks, cutaways, amazing lip-syncing, and the quickest fast-talking that Michael Peña could probably muster for what might be the perfect Luis story.

For The First Time In Its 216-Year History, West Point Gets First Black Superintendent

West Point, America’s premier military college, which didn’t graduate its first black cadet until Reconstruction in 1877, now has its first black superintendent.

For the first time in its 216-year history, Lt. Gen. Darryl Williams, who has held high-ranking posts in Europe and Asia, will become the first black officer to command West Point. He will take over from Lt. Gen. Robert L. Caslen Jr. who is retiring after more than 40 years in the Army, also serving five years as West Point’s superintendent.

William’s appointment, according to the Associated Press, comes less than a year after cadet and Rhodes Scholar, Simone Askew, a black woman from Fairfax, Virginia, was selected as first captain of the Corps of Cadets last summer and graduated in May.

A 1983 graduate of the military college and native of Alexandria, Williams has served first, as deputy chief of staff for the Army in Europe and deputy commanding general for support for the 2nd Infantry Division in South Korea. Recently, he was the commander of NATO’s Allied Land Command in Turkey.

Founded in 1802 along the west bank of the Hudson River 50 miles north of New York, West Point didn’t graduate its first black cadet until 1877. Throughout the 20th century, the military college didn’t graduate another black cadet until Benjamin O. Davis Jr. arrived there in 1932. During his stay, Davis ate alone, roomed alone, and was shunned by fellow cadets because he was black. After his graduation in 1936, he would go on to command the Tuskegee Airmen during World War II, retiring as an Air Force general in 1970. West Point’s newest barracks, per AP, was named after Davis.

For the past couple of years, the U.S. has increasingly shifted its focus on diversifying its ranks, with policies that emphasized inclusion, and marketing campaigns that targeted underrepresented communities. Of the 1,200 incoming members of West Point’s class of 2020, 186 are African Americans.

‘Bath Time!’ Chrissy Teigen Shares Adorable Video of Daughter Luna Covering Her Face in Bubbles

Chrissy Teigen‘s daughter certainly is a water baby!

Luna, 2, had fun during her bath time on Thursday night as she bathed alongside her mother, 32.

🛁,” Teigen wrote for the simple caption of a video of their water-filled adventure on Instagram.

The model couldn’t help but laugh in the video as Luna grabbed a handful of bubbles in her hands and wiped them off on Teigen’s face.

Before their dip in the black marble tub, Teigen shared a video of her daughter carrying a yellow tub of toys, which included a big rubber, yellow duck and the caption, “Bath Time!”

“Put your stuff in there!” Teigen told Luna as the little girl bent over her crate and tossed the duck inside of the bath tub.

The mom of two welcomed her second child, son Miles Theodore on May 16, with husband John Legend. Earlier this week, Teigen shared a sweet photo of her baby boy lounging on a yellow giraffe print pillow in a coordinating giraffe patterned onesie.

“Hey dudes,” Teigen captioned the photo.

The model conceived her two children through IVF, a process she told one fan in the comments section she was “all for talking about.”

“I know IVF was used for Luna was it used for baby brother also?” The follower asked her. Though other followers criticized that fan for the personal inquiry, Teigen did not shy away from talking about the process.

“I wasn’t offended by it — people are just curious and I think hearing success stories gives people hope. I’m all for talking about IVF,” the Lip Sync Battle star replied.

Teigen has been candid in the past about her and Legend’s struggle to conceive, even getting fielded with nonstop questions about starting a family since they got married in September 2013.

The model previously told PEOPLE in February that she chose to undergo IVF again more than two years after choosing to implant a female embryo that resulted in the pregnancy with Luna.

“You do the whole process again to try to get as many embryos and eggs as possible,” Teigen explained of the artificial insemination. “Everyone is freezing everything. … For me, I just want to gather as many as possible. I don’t want to do this again for the rest of my life.”

In January, Teigen confirmed that she and Legend conceived Miles through IVF after she previously said “a little boy is next.”

Winnie Harlow: I was a confident child growing up, but that changed for a time when I was bullied at school

OHMYGOSSIP — Winnie Harlow thinks her bullies’ opinions are “irrelevant”. The 23-year-old model – who suffers from vitiligo, which causes the loss skin pigment – lost her confidence because of cruel taunting she experienced at school, but she eventually learned not to care about what other people think of her, FemaleFirst.co.uk mediates.

She said: “I was a confident child growing up, but that changed for a time when I was bullied at school. As an adult, I gained my confidence back by asking myself, ‘Why do I care what other people think?’ And now I don’t. If I were to come face-to-face with those bullies today, I wouldn’t say a word. Their thoughts are irrelevant.”

I hope you smile today, you’re loved 💛

A post shared by ♔Winnie Harlow♔ (@winnieharlow) on

Winnie believes the key to not getting upset by bullies is for a person to figure out their own reasons why they doubt themselves. She said: “If I was advising my best friend on bullies, first I would ask them, ‘Why are you doubting yourself?’ Once you get to the core reason [for self doubt], you can start to work on making it over those barriers that are holding you back.”

The former ‘America’s Next Top Model’ contestant thinks social media can be a great “tool” – but also “dangerous” as it gives everyone a platform.

She told Grazia magazine: “Social media is a powerful outlet for anything you want to voice. This can be both a positive and a dangerous thing, depending on whose hands it’s in.”

Winnie feels very “lucky” that she adores her job as a model because not everyone enjoys their work. She said: “My grandfather often told my mom, do what you love because you’ll be doing it for the rest of your life. I’m lucky that I really love what I do.”

The zipline that will take you an hour back in time

ADVERTISEMENT


Traveling between countries has become so predictable. You can catch a cruise or flight to almost anywhere these days, but where’s the excitement? We humans have a habit of getting bored of things so quickly that we never stop thinking about how to make things better. It’s that endless drive for improvement that spurred Englishman David Jarman to create the Limite Zero zip line that takes you from Spain to Portugal. The unique selling point? It takes you back in time!

How does it work?

Okay, so this zip line might not be a time machine, but it still technically does what it advertises. Due to the one hour time difference between the two countries, every time you travel along the zip line, you’re technically going back an hour in time. How’s that for déjà vu? It’s not often that you can cross through time zones as easily as this.

Making the trip

The zip line starts in Sanlucar de Guadiana, a localidad in Andalucia, Spain and ends in the Portuguese town of Alcoutim. Set more than 2300 feet in the air, the trip only lasts about 60 seconds, but passengers can reach speeds of around 50mph when flying high over the Spanish countryside. The zip line covers a distance of 720 meters, 150 of which is made up the Guadiana River which separates the two nations.

Once people land in Alcoutim, you’re free to explore the local area. There’s no time limit on your trip, so they can stick around for several hours if you want to experience what the town has to offer. When you’re ready to return, the service provides a ferry that’s just a five-minute walk from the landing zone. These ferries run regularly and are free to use, because the cost of them is included as part of the zip line payment. How much do you have to pay? Only 18 euros (which is around $ 22).

First of its kind

The Andalucia to Alcoutim zip line is the first of its kind ever to be created. The proximity of the two countries meant that setting up a structure like this was possible, although not necessarily an easy feat. However, Jarman admits that “I love a challenge” and that a zip line was the best way to “unite both places.” There had been a lot of discussions before his intervention about building a bridge over the river. However, no plans for this ever came to fruition, so Jarman took it upon himself to bring the two countries together in a much more exhilarating way.

Terms and conditions

People wishing to use this zip line have to abide by certain conditions. For instance, no-one under the age of 14 is legally allowed to use it. Those between the age of 14 and 16 must have parental guidance, and need to be collected by their represented adult once landing in Alcoutim. The zip line also has a weight restriction of 242lbs.

These limits are liable to change should the weather conditions force them to reconsider safety precautions for certain individuals.

We wish that traveling from one country to another could always be as exciting as this. There’s nothing like an adrenaline rush to make crossing over borders an experience you’ll never forget.

This is the one time Meghan couldn’t break the fashion rules

Meghan Markle is known for shaking up the sartorial rules a little (see her sheer engagement dress and her Trooping The Colour dress), however Royal Ascot was one occasion where she had to abide by the Royal fashion etiquette.

The Duchess of Sussex today made her first appearance at Royal Ascot, alongside Prince Harry and The Queen, and chose to wear a design by Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy for the occasion.

It’s the third time she’s gone with the French fashion house, after her wedding dress of course and the cream dress she paired with The Queen’s earrings just last week on their first outing together.

As we all know, Royal Ascot rules are super strict, and Meghan’s white shirt dress ticked all the right boxes (though there was no sign of that special name badge all the Royals have to wear).

Traditionally, dresses should be of modest length, and shoulders should be covered by a strap that’s at least one-inch wide straps.

Plus, any old fascinator won’t do, as you have to have a base of at least four inches in diameter, which again Meghan’s hat more than covered.

She also kept her midriff covered (another big no no) with a chic black belt, which gave the traditional lace pattern a bit of an edge. Because Meghan is a maverick after all.

Creative ways to spend your time on a layover between flights

ADVERTISEMENT


The idea of packing our bags, sweeping through the airport in a pair of oversized sunglasses, and glamorously boarding a plane can be wonderful, but in reality, it usually involves a pair of sweats and lots of fidgeting. Plus, the layover between flights can just prolong the pain. Have no fear; all the time on the ground doesn’t have to be wasted as there are plenty of creative ways to spend your layovers.

Get up and moving

If you have just been sat on a plane for hours, you may not want to spend the next few sat in an airport lounge waiting for your connecting flight. Now, you don’t have to. The time in between flights is a great way to get active before your next stint on the plane. To top it off, many airports now have built-in gyms or yoga studios that offer up the perfect space to exercise. If not, find a quiet area and get stretching. It will feel so good.

Get out and about

If you have a long layover and you’re struggling with things to do, then why waste your time in the airport? This is the perfect time to have a whistle-stop tour of the local area without having to fork out on expensive stays. You could take it all in by booking a tour, heading to the local museums, or taking a walk and seeing where you end up. It’s like you get two vacations in one thanks to your brief visit to a brand new city.

Pack some games

Many airlines let passengers take a backpack or handbag on as a carry-on. Some items are a must, but there is always room for some layover entertainment. Why not fill some of it with a board game or two? After all, Monopoly alone can take hours. Board games won’t take up too much room (especially travel versions of them) and will give you a chance to unwind before cramming yourself back on the next plane.

Make new friends

Chances are you’ll be surrounded by people all going to the same place. If you are looking for a creative way to spend your layover time or you’re traveling on your own, then the airport can be the perfect place to make some new friends. Who knows, you could be sitting next to someone that knows some hidden gems where you’re headed. All it takes is saying “hello” and you could have made yourself a new travel buddy.

Get drawing or writing

Sometimes inspiration for creativity just takes finding a new space to work. If you’re suffering from writer’s block or looking for something new to draw then watching the world pass by at the airport can offer up plenty of new ideas. Maybe it is an overheard conversation? Or perhaps it is the view out of the window? Whatever it is that gets the creative juices flowing – this could be the perfect source of inspiration.

Freebies

Many airports offer up freebies of all kinds that are yours for the taking. It could be using the free wifi to call a loved one, catch up on emails, or watch a movie, or using the complimentary amenities on offer. If you’re lucky, there could be a free spa that will help you relax before the next part of your trip. Or there could be a games area that has foosball, air hockey, or any other arcade games. Before you know it, you’ll hear your flight being called.

Layovers don’t have to be boring. In fact, they can be the perfect opportunity to catch up on the creativity you have been missing in your travels. No longer do you have to find yourself watching the clock. Now, you could be wishing the hours would last even longer.

The Duchess and the Queen! Meghan Markle and Queen Elizabeth Step Out Together for First Time

The Duchess and the Queen have arrived!

Meghan Markle stepped out in northwest England on Thursday morning alongside the ultimate royal companion: Queen Elizabeth herself. The monarch wore a lime green suit dress by Stewart Parvin and a matching hat by Rachel Trevor Morgan, while Meghan wore a light beige pencil dress with a cape top by Givenchy (her wedding dress designer!).

The new Duchess of Sussex, 36, and the Queen, 92, disembarked in Cheshire, some 200 miles from London, via the royal train in Runcorn after spending the night aboard. The train is a favored travel option for the Queen and other senior royals because it allows them to work and relax en route.

Not even a month since Meghan married Prince Harry on May 19, this is the first occasion the Queen has taken her new granddaughter-in-law on an official visit. The joint outing is “happening at triple speed” compared to Meghan’s predecessor, Kate Middleton, royals author Ingrid Seward previously told PEOPLE.

First on the pair’s agenda: the Mersey Gateway Bridge, where Meghan and the Queen met architects, planners and community representatives. They also watched a performance by local school children before Elizabeth formally opened the bridge.

Their next stop is the Storyhouse in nearby Chester, where they were set to meet a Syrian settlement group, watch a performance by the Fallen Angels dance company and catch a medley of songs from a current production of A Little Night Music.

Their last appointment is set to be a lunch at Chester Town Hall with locals brought together by the council.

The outing is seen as the Queen’s way of helping immerse Meghan into public royal engagements. “It is the way of the royal family—all part of the training and getting used to being in public life and under public scrutiny,” Elizabeth’s former press secretary, Charles Anson, tells PEOPLE. “Showing people the ropes is a high priority for the Queen.”

Seward, author of the recent biography of the Queen and Prince Philip, My Husband & I, adds, “The Queen knows the potential pitfalls of not giving a guiding hand. She can’t expect Meghan to know everything without being shown. I’m sure she feels Meghan needs a steadying hand in these early days.”

Meghan returned to public royal outings shortly after her secret honeymoon with Harry, when she joined in the annual celebration of the Queen’s birthday, Trooping the Colour, on June 9.

What’s the best time of day to photograph your kids?

by

Jennifer Borget

posted in Life

It’s getting late in the afternoon, their bellies are full from dinner, the sun is setting, the weather is cooling down. It feels like the perfect time to head outside.

“Let’s go for a walk,” I called after a long day inside homeschooling and reading lots and lots of books. We can travel far and wide through text in a book, but that doesn’t mean we don’t still need to get outside.

 

When it comes to playing, they’re happy to do it together no matter what it is. Sometimes that means my son’s dinosaur is “eating” the doll my daughter is twirling around. Their favorite kind of play however goes beyond dollhouse walls, even beyond the walls of our home.

“Have you ever played Freeze Tag?” I asked as we reached the park.

“No, what’s that?” My daughter asked. My 11-year-old sister was there to help break it down.

“It’s like regular tag but when the person who is it tags you, you have to freeze in place,” she explained. The evening was full of belly laughs and side aches.

Then I watched as my kids pretended a rock wall was a castle wall to waiting to be climbed. They jumped off to escape the dragons, then flew back up again.

My favorite photos to capture are at this time of day, when the sun is setting, the shadows are long and the light is golden. It’s hard to beat the warmth and joy these photos bring. But the best time to photograph our kids? Right now.

Whether your child is a baby learning to lift his head up, or a toddler learning to walk, a preschooler playing pretend, or a big kid trying something new. Now is always the best time to capture a moment with your child. So, quick, go snap a pic. Trust me, you’ll thank me later.
