Why Sunday’s AFC Championship Game Is a Bigger Deal for Patrick Mahomes Than Tom Brady

It’s been a bounce-back season for the NFL. Scoring is up, with the four most offensively potent teams in the league — the Kansas City Chiefs, the Los Angeles Rams, the New Orleans Saints and the New England Patriots — reaching the conference championship round. Pro football feels fun again. Defense wins championships? Bollocks. After a down year in 2017, TV ratings have risen.

So it’s only fitting that in a bullish year for football, fans are treated with one particularly dreamy matchup on conference championship Sunday, Jan. 20. That’ll be when the Kansas City Chiefs, led by their stunningly talented second-year quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, host the House of Brady, the New England Patriots, in the AFC title game. (The New Orleans Saints play the Los Angeles Rams in the Big Easy in Sunday’s other matchup.)

The Mahomes-Brady duel counts as nothing less than an intergenerational battle for the heart and soul of the NFL. Hyperbole? Maybe. It’s just sports, though, so let’s run with it.

As NFL playoff games go, the stakes are serious. Brady, the only quarterback who owns five Super Bowl trophies, has set new standards for football excellence. His quinoa and avocado ice cream diet, irritating though it may be, is paying off: at 41, he’s playing in a record eighth straight conference championship. On the home side of the ball, Mahomes is football’s version of Stephen Curry. Clips of his “are you friggin’ kidding me” plays — throws with his weak hand, and sidearm, and across his body and without looking and on the run — light up the internet, like Curry’s ridiculous three-pointers. This season Mahomes, 23, became just the second-ever quarterback to throw for at least 5,000 yards and throw at least 50 TD passes in the same season. Only Mahomes, Brady, and Peyton Manning have ever thrown 50 or more TD passes in a single season.

One quarterback has been the face of the game for over a decade. With a win, the other can expedite his quest to succeed him. The NFC championship game, between the Saints and Rams, similarly pits an aging inevitable Hall of Famer against a budding star. New Orleans’ Drew Brees, who just turned 40, is a Super Bowl champion who this season surpassed the elder Manning brother’s all-time record for career passing yards; Brees now has 74,437 compared to Manning’s 71,940. Goff’s a bonafide franchise QB who’s turned in some eye-popping performances, such as his 465 yard, five touchdown game against the Minnesota Vikings on a Thursday night, on three days’ rest, in September. He had a perfect passer rating that night.

Still, Brees-Goff doesn’t carry the same sizzle as Brady-Mahomes. One’s not generally considered the best of all time. The other’s not already setting all-time records.

Brady would seem to be facing more pressure on Sunday. Time’s going to run out on him at some point. This could be his last chance to win a sixth Super Bowl. Mahomes, meanwhile, is just starting out. If he misses this opportunity, he’ll surely get back, right?

Except nothing’s quite that certain, especially in the NFL. This game is more of a must-win for Mahomes. Kansas City finished the regular season with a better record than New England, owns home-field advantage, and boasts superior firepower on its roster. The oddsmakers list KC as the favorites. Brady’s legend is already secure. Mahomes, as good as he is, could catch some bad breaks going forward. Maybe injury. Maybe the team turns over. With its salary cap structure, the NFL’s economic model breeds parity. So maybe another team emerges, aside from the Chiefs, in the ensuring years. Bill Belichick has somehow hacked the NFL, and keeps constructing teams that contend for a championship. Odds are long that Kansas City does the same.

Dan Marino reached the Super Bowl when he was 23; Joe Montana’s San Francisco 49ers crushed his Miami Dolphins, and Marino never made it back. In 2012 Colin Kaepernick, at 25, shook up the NFL and reached a Super Bowl, coming a few yards short of potentially winning. (Ironically, Kaepernick displaced Alex Smith as the starter in San Francisco, as Mahomes did in Kansas City six years later.) Former ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski gushed that Kaepernick “could be one of the greatest quarterbacks ever.” But inconsistency, injuries, and controversy derailed Kaepernick. Sure, Mahomes’ 2018 season was statistically far superior to Kaepernick’s initial burst. Mahomes is a better quarterback, and seems unlikely to champion causes that turn ownership against him. But you can’t entirely dismiss Kaeperick as a cautionary tale.

Or look at Russell Wilson. In just his third season, at age 26, he was a Marshawn Lynch one-yard TD run away from joining the pantheon of great quarterbacks to win back-to-back Super Bowl titles (Brady, Joe Montana, Troy Aikman and Terry Bradshaw, to name a few). Then Seattle coach Pete Carroll called a pass play. Malcolm Butler picked off Wilson. A potential Seattle dynasty fizzled. Wilson’s far from a lock to return to an NFC championship game, lest a Super Bowl.

Football is fleeting. A Brady-Brees old guy Super Bowl carries sentimental value. But Rams-Chiefs would be utterly delightful, a rematch of one of the best regular season games ever, a wild Monday Night air show that Los Angeles won 54-51. More than any other game this season, that one marked a rejuvenated NFL. The future’s now. Mahomes and Goff just now have to grab it.

No pressure.

Correction, Jan. 18

The original version of this story misstated the conference in which Russel Wilson plays. It is the NFC, not the AFC.

Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” video appropriates Black culture, and we have to talk about it

Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” video appropriates Black culture, and we have to talk about it


Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” video appropriates Black culture, and we have to talk about it

On January 17th, pop star Ariana Grande dropped a video for her new single, “7 Rings,” a hip-hop-inspired joint about all of the joys of disposable income. Some of my Twitter timeline consisted of people candidly and comically talking about capitalism and how Grande’s wealth made them feel. Others continued stanning the singer as usual. But an overwhelming amount of Black women were not amused by Grande’s latest work. Rather, they were offended and taken aback by her use of Black culture to boost her sound.

The video, which is currently the #1 trending video on YouTube and has accumulated over 15 million views as of this article, starts off with a pink-tinted scene starring Grande and her pastel-obsessed, all-female ensemble. The crew dons their hardest, sexiest faces as Grande gives a rundown of her life to the tune of “My Favorite Things” from The Sound Of Music: The tragic events that crushed her, the luxurious adventures she has with “girls with tattoos who like getting in trouble.” But right before the minute mark, “7 Rings” takes a sharp, cringeworthy turn. The trap hi-hats come in, and Grande’s “Pretty Boy Swag” homage kicks off.

Soulja Boy is the mastermind behind “Pretty Boy Swag,” an equally opulent song that was legally sampled by Beyoncé on 2016’s “Hold Up”. Soulja, who is arguably the world’s first social media star, has been the subject of memes and articles galore this week for his interview with  The Breakfast Club, in which he accused Drake of stealing his lyrics and flow. Many have sided with Soulja Boy, saying that he has never received the appropriate accolades for his work, or even the basic respect he deserves for launching the career of one of pop’s biggest names.

For Grande to use his cadence with no credit is not only a slap in the face, but an especially bad business move as well. Soulja Boy is clearly very open when it comes to popping off about unauthorized uses of his material.

It looks like Grande took cues from 2 Chainz, too. His famous Pink Trap House in Atlanta was a safe space for Black people that he used as a free HIV-testing center and a family-friendly haunted house. Grande tried to recreate the energy he ushered in with this innovative space by incorporating a house of her own into “7 Rings,” but it came off as gimmicky. If you know what really happens in trap houses, then you know that they’re much more than party locations for champagne-inspired fantasies. Trap houses are often unfurnished spaces where drugs are produced and sold. Frankly, it is not within Ariana Grande’s range to change that narrative since she has no experience with that lifestyle.

Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money” and Beyonce’s rap-singing (featured on “APESHIT,” “7/11,” and “Top Off”) also appear to have influenced Grande, as some folks online have pointed out.

New York rapper Princess Nokia also seems to be a victim of Grande’s apparently sticky fingers. In an Instagram video posted January 18th, the 26-year-old artist played “7 Rings” and “Mine,” a song from her 1992 Deluxe album released in 2017, side by side. Nokia then says, “Do that sound familiar to you? Because that sound familiar to me…Ain’t that the little song I made about brown women and their hair?”

Stans are choosing to cape for Grande, saying, “locals don’t even know [who Nokia is]” and “Sorry, who are you??” But if you listen closely to both songs, you can definitely hear similarities in the instrumental composition, the vocal tones of both performers, and even the lyrics. While Nokia talks about her hair by repeating the lyrics, “It’s mine, I bought it,” Grande repeats, “I want it, I got it” and “You like my hair? Gee, thanks, just bought it” in a very similar rhythm.

Ariana Grande has made it known that she works with Victoria Monét and Tayla Parx, two talented Black songwriters who only have a sliver of Grande’s visibility. Their heavy involvement in her career, plus cosigns from other Black celebrities like Pharrell, surely makes it seem that Grande’s ties to Blackness are legitimate. But the fact remains that she is a white woman who has studied AAVE, and she is now using trap house imagery and lifting from the works of lesser known Black rappers without giving them credit. (It’s important to note that, in addition to this appropriation of Black culture, people have criticized Grande’s recent and frequent use of Japanese characters and aesthetics in her promotional imagery.)

I talked with fellow writers Erin McLaughlin and Wanna Thompson about Grande’s lip locks with Blackness. When I asked if this disregard for Black innovation was shocking on Grande’s part, McLaughlin said, “Black American culture is the most popular phenomenon in the world to be honest, so everyone thinks it’s always up for grabs. It’s always been the norm to expect ANYTHING from Black people—whether it’s our time, labor, or creativity. [Grande] being white makes it even worse…How do you look as a white girl with a team full of Black people doing a video like this?”

Thompson was not shocked either. “Everyone knows that Blackness is what’s cool,” she said. “Various artists have experimented with this in the past, and it’s still a formula that white women continue to utilize. From Gwen Stefani to Fergie to Miley Cyrus, Iggy Azalea…the list goes on and on. This tactic will never die, as long as you have an industry supporting the BS.”

“We all know white women are afforded privilege…Ariana is able to hide behind her ‘cute, quirky’ image without much backlash because she’s still viewed as that innocent kid from Nickelodeon,” Thompson continued. “I have called [her] out various times via Twitter in the last few months, and I was met with backlash…”

McLaughlin has similar sentiments: “She’s white. She’s a cute, petite white girl with a clean track record as far as being problematic goes. But also, stan culture has prevented people from being able to separate the art from the artist.”

Ariana, if you’re reading, hear me out. It doesn’t have to be this way.

You don’t have to go down in history as another white girl who turned to rap and Black culture to add sauce to her career. You’re already talented—no one can take that away from you. People love you for how open you are about your life. These moments of appropriation are unnecessary, and Blackness isn’t an act. Detracting from the hard work of Black people won’t get you as far as you hope. And if it does, you better believe that it won’t keep you there. Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to.

Mom Of Gucci Mane’s Son Says She’s Living On Welfare While Rapper Lives It Up

World Famous Rapper Gucci Mane Shopping At The Gucci Store.

The mother of Gucci Mane‘s 11-year-old son says she’s living on welfare and living in Section 8 housing while the boy’s famous father lives lavishly. Sheena Evans is seeking up to $ 20,000 in child support payments from the rapper and author, which would be an $ 18,000 increase.

The Blast reports:

A hearing was held this week in the case brought by Gucci’s baby mama, Sheena Evans, who sued seeking an increase in the monthly support from the current $ 2,026 a month to $ 20k for their 11-year-old son, Keitheon.

In video shot by Dennis Byron at the hearing, her lawyer spoke to the judge and said her client lives in Section 8 housing, is on government assistance, receives food stamps and is on Medicaid … all while Gucci is making millions.

In her suit filed last year, Evans argued the rapper was making a substantial amount more since leaving prison in 2011.

Gucci’s baby mama took issue with him spending a considerable amount of money on fine jewelry and says when the rapper got married, he spent in excess of $ 1 million for his wedding.

Gucci Mane’s side says that the rapper’s finances have not increased despite Evans’ claims and wants the case tossed out.

Kate Moss, Lily Allen Attend Dior Men Show

LOCATION LOCATION: Lily Allen was in mock casting-agent mode arriving at the Dior Men show on Friday, with her tell-all, best-selling memoir, “My Thoughts Exactly,” set to be made into a film or TV series.
Sporting a silver leopard-print anorak accessorized with a diamond cannabis-shaped necklace she picked up at Icebox in Atlanta, Allen, who is also working on a second book, her fifth album and two musicals, had inadvertently matched her black lipstick to the color of the venue, a sprawling ephemeral structure set on the Champ-de-Mars opposite the École Militaire, with the Eiffel Tower looming in the near distance.
When asked who should play her, the singer, who said the format for the adaptation has not yet been decided, shrugged, surveyed the space, and jokingly pointed to the nearest fellow front-rower: Christina Ricci.
An unassuming Ricci, a friend of Dior Men creative director Kim Jones who had flown from Los Angeles to support his sophomore outing for the house, was taking in the space. “It’s very impressive to see this big Brutalist tent set against the beauty and elegance of Paris,” she said.
Other high-profile guests attending the event included Kate Moss, joined by her beau Count Nikolai von Bismarck; Robert Pattinson and Naomi Campbell.

The Weekend Reset: Big Scares, Big Butts, Big Bites and more.

It’s Friday. Looking for something to switch up your weekend, or to give you an excuse to relax a little? That’s what the Weekend Reset is for. Each week contributor Tim Johnstone pulls together five things to get your weekend started. Could be something to read or watch, something to eat or listen to, or even something to do. Enjoy the weekend fellas.

 

LISTEN: When Cranberries are bittersweet.

A little over a year after her unexpected death, Dolores O’Riordan’s voice is front and center once again on the first new song from what will be The Cranberries final album. Fans should not be disappointed with “All Over Now” although the title might give them reason to be bummed all over again. It really does bear repeating that the band didn’t really sound like any of their contemporaries, with a sound that merged alternative rock, pop, and Irish musical motifs. It was a winning formula and it made for some truly memorable music. This is a fine addition to their catalogue.

 

APPRECIATE: Is your butt too big for your britches?

http://www.espn.com/nhl/story/_/id/25707545/the-struggle-real-why-hockey-butts-jeans-mix

Oh sure. Finding a great pair of trousers can be challenging depending on any number of factors. But for those of you who play hockey, or ride road cycles, or play football, baseball or rugby, the challenge is completely different. Y’all have big butts. Solid muscle. Here’s a solid take on what that means when it comes to finding a pair of jeans. 

 

WATCH: It is traumatizing and frightening and so damn good.

And it is not Bird Box. It’s Hereditary. I know. I’m months late in recommending this one. I had put off seeing this because I knew it would mess with me. But it has popped up on streaming services now and maybe some of you haven’t heard about it? Toni Collette. Is. Amazing. As are all of the folks in this movie including Gabriel Byrne who is well cast here. To call this movie intense would be to undersell it. To refer to it as traumatizing would be less hyperbolic than you think.

 

NEST: It’s Hooga Time!

Actually, the word is HYGGE. But it’s pronounced hooga. And it is Denmark and Norway’s gift to the world. Right about now, there’s a decent chance you might need a good dose of it. In a word, it is a concept. To be cozy and comfortable. That is something of a simplification, but it works. The word is probably derived from the word “hug.” What’s not to like. This weekend, especially if you are dealing with terrible weather, take a day to employ your own version of hygge. Grab a book and some coffee. Watch some football. Build a fire and play board games with friends.

 

EAT: You don’t have to eat wings for this weekend’s big games.

https://kalynskitchen.com/low-carb-chicken-stir-fry-sheet-pan-meal/

For some reason, it is very difficult to find a recipe these days that does not come with a 1500 word essay on (insert peculiar family custom/recent dietary change/kale) and this link is no exception. But the idea is solid and once again this is mostly a one pan dish. So, just scroll down, keep scrolling, there you go, and eventually you’ll get to the recipe. It is fairly simple, straightforward and easy to clean up after. I’d consider using another pot to cook some brown rice or cauliflower rice or one of your favorite grains. It makes for excellent left-overs for work lunches as well so, bonus!

FASHION DEAL UPDATE:

Leaving Your Bank in 2019 Could Save You $360. Here’s How

When’s the last time you were slapped with a bank fee?

Maybe you didn’t maintain that insanely high minimum balance, or you accidentally overdrafted by 99 cents, Or you might’ve used an out-of-network ATM out of desperation.

You’re not alone.

Big banks make big bucks off these fees. Looking at overdraft fees alone, banks collected $ 6.4 billion from Americans in 2016, according to a CNN analysis.

The average overdraft fee these days hovers around $ 30, according to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. That’s approximately 10 small Starbucks lattes. Or 30 items off the McDonald’s dollar menu — one snack a day (though we don’t really recommend that health-wise).

Bottom line: We’re losing a lot of money in fees.

And if you’re a moderately frequent overdrafter (defined by the CFPB as someone who overdrafts once a month), then you’re handing over $ 360 in fees each year.

The good news is that there are some very nice accounts out there that won’t charge you overdraft fees — or nearly any fees for that matter — like Aspiration.

This Unicorn of an Account Doesn’t Charge Insane Fees

The Aspiration Account is an online-only account with no monthly fees, no minimums and pays 1% APY.

Yep! Instead of getting charged fees, you can actually earn money with this account.

Here’s a quick rundown of the account’s features and its fees (or lack thereof):

  • Minimum opening deposit: $ 10
  • Minimum balance to maintain: $ 0
  • Monthly maintenance fee: $ 0
  • ATM fee (both domestic and international): $ 0
  • Overdraft fee: $ 0
  • Stop payment fee: $ 0
  • Incoming wire transfers: 82 cents
  • Outgoing wire transfers: 82 cents

(Honestly, there’s Venmo and PayPal these days for those transfers anyways…)

So rather than getting tangled in an endless cycle of bank fees, Aspiration’s account actually allows you to sit back and watch your money grow, thanks to that 1% APY you’ll earn on your balance.

So make the switch, save some money and have a happy, fee-free year!

Naomi Campbell Debuts Stunning New Look At Paris Fashion Week

(Photo Credit:  PR Photos)

Naomi Campbell damn near broke the Internet on Thursday when she stepped out for Paris Fashion Week rocking a completely new hairstyle: short, cute curls with caramel-colored highlights… and fans are here for it!

The iconic supermodel is known for her long, sleek, tresses parted down the middle. She shared a few images of her stunning new mane on social media, and reactions from some of her follows ranged from “I am LOVING the new look Queen Naomi” to “Totally in love with this look! Naomi, you’re even prettier if this is possible!”

Twitter user Le_Joseph_Ayoub wrote, “Aunty Naomi, all hair styles look great on you. #meow”

And @Maxx_Powerz said: “Somehow, I think you could wear a potato sack and make it look amazing ; )”

Naomi was among the many stars who filled the front row Thursday morning in Paris to support Virgil Abloh’s second show for Louis Vuitton Homme, reports aol.com. She sported a muted tailored blazer over a Louis Vuitton pleated dress, the outlet noted.

The award-winning fashionista, whose career has spanned decades, launched a Youtube channel in December that gives fans an inside look into her personal and professional life as a businesswoman, activist and model.

She previously said of her new online series “Being Naomi”:

“I want to show the world who I am and what I stand for. My hope is that when you engage with my channel that you are inspired by what you see, that it pushes you to be the best you can be, to do your part in the world and to pursue your dreams.” She continues, “I am honored to be able to share my life on YouTube and to have the unique opportunity to communicate my story in my own voice.”

Have a look at “Being Naomi” via clip below and visit the channel here.

On Twitter, Campbell noted that the latest new episode is “all about my experience working on the ‘In The Closet’ music video, with two incredible talents who I was lucky enough to call friends Michael Jackson and Herb Ritts,” she wrote.

Wendy Williams To Take Health-Related Break From TV Show

(Photo by AP)

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Wendy Williams is taking an extended break from her TV talk show to deal with health issues related to her immune system disorder, her family said Friday.

The family wrote in a statement that Williams has suffered complications from Graves’ disease in the past few days.

Treatment is necessary and will include “significant time” in the hospital, according to the family statement provided by show producer and distributor Debmar-Mercury.

Williams has a strong desire to return to work but must focus on her “personal and physical well-being,” the family said, adding a request that her privacy be respected.

Williams, 54, is married to Kevin Hunter.

She is on the mend from another health problem, a shoulder fracture she suffered in December, the statement said.

The host revealed the Graves’ disease diagnosis on her show last February, when she announced a three-week hiatus.

Graves’ disease leads to the overproduction of thyroid hormones and can cause wide-ranging symptoms and affect overall health.

In October 2017, Williams fainted on stage during her show, saying later she became overheated while wearing a bulky Halloween costume.

Debmar-Mercury said that it “wholeheartedly” supports Williams’ decision to take the time she needs. She will be welcomed back when she is ready, the company said.

Repeats of “The Wendy Williams Show” will air during the week of Jan. 21, to be followed by original episodes with guest hosts.

Even Roger Federer Needed His Security Pass at the Australian Open

(MELBOURNE, Australia) — Maybe Roger Federer isn’t as famous as we thought.

Turns out that even he must carry his tournament ID to get where he’s try to go at the Australian Open.

Rules are rules, after all.

So what if Federer is a six-time champion at Melbourne Park … the owner of 20 Grand Slam titles in all … a man who’s spent more weeks ranked No. 1 than any other … and one of the most recognizable athletes on the planet?

A video showing Federer stopped by a security guard in a hallway outside a locker room at the Grand Slam tournament made the rounds on Twitter on Saturday, drawing a mix of amazement and amusement.

In the clip, the guard is seen indicating to Federer that he was missing his Australian Open accreditation pass. Players, coaches, officials, members of the media and others are given lanyards with badges that have a name, a photo, tournament role and a bar code that can be scanned at security checkpoints.

Federer didn’t argue. He stood patiently, waiting until he was joined by members of his entourage. That’s when he was allowed to proceed and go through the door.

Saturday was a practice day for Federer at Melbourne Park.

He is scheduled to face Stefanos Tsitsipas in the fourth round on Sunday.

Bioethicists call for oversight of consumer ‘neurotechnologies’ with unproven benefits

The marketing of consumer ‘neurotechnologies’ can be enticing: apps that diagnose a mental state, and brain devices that improve cognition or ‘read’ one’s emotional state. However, many of these increasingly popular products aren’t fully supported by science and have little to no regulatory oversight, which poses potential health risks to the public. Two bioethicists suggest the creation of a working group that would further study, monitor, and provide guidance for this growing industry — which is expected to top $ 3 billion by 2020.

UPDATE: Kentucky Airport To Be Renamed After Muhammad Ali

This article was updated on January 17, 2019.

The Louisville International Airport in Kentucky will be renamed after its hometown hero Muhammed Ali. Just a day before the legendary boxer would have turned 77 years old, the Regional Airport Authority board voted on Wednesday to name the airport Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport in honor of his legacy, reports the Louisville Courier Journal.

The announcement comes almost two and a half years after Robert Holmes III, an educator from Louisville, launched a grassroots campaign in an effort to rename the airport. Despite receiving an overwhelming number of signatures petitioning for the name change, the idea was initially rejected by Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer.  However, the mayor sang a different tune Wednesday, stating:

“Muhammad Ali belonged to the world, but he only had one hometown, and fortunately, that is our great city of Louisville,” reported the local publication. “Muhammad became one of the most well-known people to ever walk the Earth and has left a legacy of humanitarianism and athleticism that has inspired billions of people. It is important that we, as a city, further champion The Champ’s legacy,” Fischer continued. “And the airport renaming is a wonderful next step.”

Changes involving Ali’s name and brand at the airport will be part of the airport’s $ 100 million renovation project. to renovate and are slated for completion later this year.

Muhammad Ali

Earlier this month, Black Enterprise reported on the more than yearlong, uphill battle a Kentucky-based educator, Robert Holmes III, has faced in hopes of honoring Muhammad Ali in Louisville, the city where “The People’s Champ” was born and raised. Back in June 2016, Holmes launched the Global Friends of Muhammad Ali, a grassroots effort that is committed to renaming the Louisville International Airport to “Muhammad Ali International Airport.” The group started a petition on Change.org, calling on Ali fans to support an initiative that would pay tribute to the legendary boxer. After being shared on MPowerChange.org, it collected over 14,000 signatures.

 

Despite receiving an overwhelming number of signatures and even support from members of the Ali family, Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer’s spokesperson Chris Poynter told BLACK ENTERPRISE that “there is no active committee looking at the matter of renaming the airport.” He added that the power to change the name lies within the Louisville Regional Airport Authority, which “will ultimately make any decision to rename the airport.” The Louisville Regional Airport Authority, however, also confirmed that it “has no current plans to change the name of Louisville International Airport (SDF).”

In addition, Fischer’s office reached out to BE emphasizing that the city has already paid homage to their hometown hero in a variety of other ways. “Louisville has several major Ali memorials already, including the Muhammad Ali Center (a major institution) and a prominent street named after The Champ. By focusing only on the airport, you leave the impression that the Champ’s hometown isn’t honoring his legacy, which is the furthest from the truth,” said Poynter.

Holmes, however, dismissed the mayor’s response as “a great attempt at a political spin to dodge the question. It’s obvious that Louisville has done things to honor its greatest citizen, but that’s not the [issue].” Holmes added that other cities, like New Orleans, have renamed their airports after superstar natives. “If they can name their airport after Louis Armstrong, who’s a jazz musician, certainly Louisville should be able to coalesce around the idea of renaming the airport.”

According to Holmes, the opposition to rename the airport boils down to the fact that Ali was an outspoken black man who voiced opposition to racism and war.

“I feel that there is a racial component to it and I think that’s one of the reasons why people don’t want to touch it,” he says. “Because he was a very brash, young man in very turbulent times during the 60’s and the early 70’s. He spoke his mind and he stood his ground and he stood up for what he believed in. He stood up against social injustice and racial disparities not only all over the world, but he also spoke about the racial disparities right here in his hometown.” Holmes continued, “There were segments of the white community that did not celebrate Muhammad Ali and you still have that today.”

Although Mayor Fischer’s office told BE that the airport authority will make the ultimate decision to rename the airport, Holmes pointed out that the mayor maintains power to appoint “several members of the board.”

“If he wanted to make that decision, to say that I want to rename this airport in honor of Muhammad Ali, I don’t believe it is that hard,” said Holmes.

FASHION DEALS UPDATE:

All of the Hidden Unbreakable and Split References in Glass

Warning: This post contains spoilers for Unbreakable, Split and Glass.

When Split premiered in 2017, fans were shocked when director M. Night Shyamalan revealed in the final minutes of the film that it was actually a sequel to his 2000 film, Unbreakable. Shyamalan later confirmed in interviews that the plot of Split was originally written as the third act of Unbreakable. Now, Shyamalan is bringing all of his super-powered men together in Glass, the final entry in his realistic superhero trilogy. Fortunately for fans, Glass is filled with easter eggs and hidden connections to the two other films.

A quick recap for those who have forgotten what happened in the two previous movies: In Unbreakable, a man named David Dunn (Bruce Willis) survives a train crash and discovers that he has super strength and unbreakable bones. He can also see a person’s sins when he touches them.

David is skeptical of his powers until Elijah Price, a man with fragile bones who is obsessed with comic books, proves to David that he is indeed a superhero. Only once David has accepted his powers does Elijah reveal that he orchestrated the train derailment in hopes of revealing someone’s super powers. Elijah dubs himself Mr. Glass, a supervillain who is David’s perfect opposite, before he is institutionalized.

Bruce Willis as David in 'Glass'
Disney—Universal/Kobal/REX/ShutterstockBruce Willis as Davidin ‘Glass’

In Split, a mysterious man (James McAvoy) kidnaps three teenage girls. The teens eventually realize that the man has 24 personalities, including the Beast, a super-strong cannibal. The man, born Kevin Wendell Crumb, was abused as a child and a series of meetings with his therapist reveal that the personalities (including his most dangerous, the bulletproof Beast) emerged to protect Kevin.

The Beast eats two of the girls, saying that he gains power from them. He lets the third girl Casey (Anya Taylor Joy) go because she has suffered through sexual abuse at the hands of her uncle and, according to the Beast’s philosophy, those who suffer will inherit the earth.

Thus the scene is set for Glass, in which David, Kevin and Elijah are all thrown into a psychiatric hospital because of their superhero delusions. At the end of Glass, Elijah orchestrates a fight between the Beast and David outside the hospital and films the interaction to prove to the world that superheroes and supervillains are real. All three men are eventually killed by a secret cabal led by Dr. Ellie Staple (Sarah Paulson) whose mission it is to take out all super-powered people, good or evil, to protect the world.

The characters’ favorite colors

Throughout Unbreakable, David wears lots of green (the color of the poncho he wears while fighting crime), and Elijah wears purple. In Split, Kevin wears yellow when he transforms into the Beast. All three characters continue to wear those respective colors in Glass, while Dr. Staple wears a lot of pink.

Sarah Paulson as Dr. Ellie Staple in 'Glass'
Disney—Universal/Kobal/REX/ShutterstockSarah Paulson as Dr. Ellie Staple in ‘Glass’ Film

Shyamalan uses these colors palettes throughout the film. The shelves in the comic book store where David’s son, Joseph (Spencer Treat Clark), shops are painted both purple and green. And the room where Dr. Staple speaks to the three men together is pink, signaling perhaps that she is in control of the situation.

M. Night Shyamalan plays the same man in all three films

M. Night Shyalaman often makes cameo appearances in his movies. He plays two seemingly unrelated roles in Unbreakable and a landlord in Split, only to reveal in Glass that the two men were the same person.

Shyamalan plays one of David Dunn’s first targets in Unbreakable. David, a security guard at a football stadium, brushes by Shyamalan’s character and sees that he was carrying drugs and a gun. David shares his vision with Elijah. Elijah then follows the character to find out if he is, in fact, carrying a gun. He also uses this information to confirm that David has superpowers.

Shyamalan appears again in Split, this time as Dr. Karen Fletcher’s landlord. Dr. Fletcher asks the landlord to play footage from a security camera outside of her building for her. Watching it, she is able to confirm that the Hive has taken control of Kevin Wendell Crumb’s body. She later confronts the Hive and is killed.

In Glass, Shymalan reveals that his two cameos are related. He plays a man who visits David Dunn’s electronic store and talks about how he is a former drug dealer who “turned himself around” and became a super. He is buying surveillance equipment because one of his tenants (Dr. Fletcher) was recently murdered.

The train accident

All three movies revolve around the train derailment that takes place in the opening minutes of Unbreakable. David Dunn is the only person to survive the accident in that film, which Elijah later reveals that he caused.

In Split, Kevin must go to the train tracks in order to unleash his final personality, the Beast. In that movie, he explains to his therapist, Dr. Fletcher, that his father left on a train and never returned, leaving Kevin with his abusive mother.

In Glass, Joseph discovers that Kevin’s father was killed in the same train accident that David survived. Thus, Elijah created two superheroes with one catastrophe.

Casey’s coat from the zoo

Kevin Wendell Crumb kept the girls he kidnapped under the zoo in Split. A zookeeper discovers Casey, the lone survivor, at the end of the film and offers her his jacket. (At this point her shirt has been ripped in her fight with the Beast.) Casey dons the coat during a scene from Glass as she leaves the mental hospital after her meeting with Dr. Staple.

Kevin’s scars

When The Beast emerges, he reveals two scars on his torso where Casey shot him with a shotgun in Split.

The “Marvel” building

Elijah hints that he will stage the final showdown between David and the Beast at Philadelphia’s tallest building. He gets the idea from a magazine cover, which declares the tower a “marvel” in the headline. The phrase is a nod to the prolific comic book publisher.

But the fact that the building is associated at all with Marvel should have tipped audiences off to the fact that the heroes and villains of Glass would never fight there. Shyamalan has called Glass a realistic superhero movie. Fighting at the top of a tower, as Marvel superheroes would, defies realism. Instead, Elijah forces the final fight to take place outside the mental hospital, where he can secretly control all the cameras and leak the footage out to the world.

Must-Reads Of The Week From Brianna Labuskes

Happy Friday, aka Day 28 of the government shutdown. We all might be getting a little shutdown-news fatigue, but this piece about the spouses of furloughed workers who have had it up to here with their husbands or wives being around all the time was a bright spot in a heap of gloom.

Speaking of gloom, let’s get to it.

The shutdown has hit Native American tribes harder than others because they rely heavily on federal funding for basic services — like running their health clinics. As the standoff drags on, there’s a real fear that members will not be able to get lifesaving medication, such as insulin or blood pressure drugs. “This is a crisis like we’ve never seen,” said Aaron Payment, a board member of the National Congress of American Indians, in Montana Public Radio’s coverage of the story.

The Washington Post: Tribes Face Food and Medicine Crisis As Shutdown Continues, Lawmakers Are Told

One furloughed worker who is rationing her insulin because she can’t afford to buy more told CNN that she was doing it because “the thought of having more debt was scarier than the thought of dying.” One night she went to bed with sky-high sugar levels and just “hoped to wake up.”

CNN: This Diabetic Federal Worker Rationed Her Insulin During the Shutdown Because Debt Was Scarier Than Dying

Food insecurity is a topic area that can sometimes fly under the radar in this country, but the shutdown is thrusting it into the spotlight. Worries about SNAP (the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, commonly known as food stamps), school lunches and food banks highlight how many families are fundamentally struggling with hunger on a daily basis.

Politico: Next Shutdown Victim: School Lunches


A damning government watchdog report found that there may be thousands more young migrant children who were separated from their parents than the administration previously reported. That’s because there was a wave of separations back in 2017. They acted as somewhat of a test balloon for the “zero-tolerance policy” that eventually caused a deafening public outcry.

One of the scariest parts of the report? No one actually knows the total number of kids who were separated from their parents.

The New York Times: Family Separation May Have Hit Thousands More Migrant Children Than Reported


President Donald Trump’s attempts to relax rules on employers’ responsibilities for contraception coverage got a one-two punch in the courts this week. First, a federal judge blocked the rules for the 13 states (and D.C.) that were a part of the case in front of him. The very next day, that narrow decision was followed by a broader nationwide injunction. I’m going to go ahead and wager that this isn’t the last we’ve heard of the issue.

Reuters: Second U.S. Judge Blocks Trump Administration Birth Control Rules

Heading into a general-election season may seem like an odd time to rock the boat on health law premiums, but a new proposal from the Trump administration may do just that. The change, which officials say is necessary to adjust for inflated subsidies, could mean millions of Americans will be paying more for coverage next year. And we all saw how health care factored into the midterms.

The Associated Press: Trump Administration Proposes Higher ‘Obamacare’ Premiums


Drug pricing was absolutely center stage again this week on Capitol Hill as newly empowered Democrats fired their opening salvo against Big Pharma. Oversight and Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings announced that he’s launching a wide-scale and in-depth probe on drugmakers, seeking information specifically about why prices have increased so dramatically on old drugs (among other things).

The Associated Press: House Dems Announce Sweeping Investigation Of Drug Pricing


Talking about block-granting Medicaid used to be all the rage, but as the Trump administration has given states more flexibility with waivers the topic has quieted down. Now, though, there are reports that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is quietly devising a plan to achieve the long-held conservative dream.

Any block grant proposal, though, faces both legal obstacles and pretty staunch opponents in Democrats, who have already vowed to fight any changes by “literally every means that a U.S. senator has.”

New court documents have revealed, in stunning detail, just how closely the prominent family that started Purdue Pharma was involved with its aggressive marketing strategies for OxyContin. Richard Sackler, one family member, said the debut of the painkiller should be followed by “a blizzard of prescriptions” to effectively bury the competition. And when the heat started turning up on the drug’s addictive qualities, Sackler directed workers to “hammer on abusers in every way possible” to shift blame for the epidemic to them.

Republican Sen. Rand Paul had to fend off some jabs this week when it was announced that he (an outspoken critic about socialized health care) was going to Canada for a surgical procedure. The issue was more about optics than anything else, though — Paul’s office confirmed that he will be paying out-of-pocket for his care.

In this fascinating story, The New York Times pulls back the curtain on the thriving gray market that exists for diabetes strips. People with insurance don’t pay that much for the strips, but they can be really expensive for anyone without it. There’s no law against reselling them, and so you get this wild marketplace that cropped up, as they tend to do, to meet the demand.

The best places to see the Northern Lights

ADVERTISEMENT


Have you heard or read about the Northern Lights? The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, are one of the greatest shows displayed by Mother Nature. They occur when there is a collision between solar particles and gases in the atmosphere. They may last for a few minutes or even several days. Many people dream of viewing this incredible spectacle, and choose a vacation destination for this purpose. Does this sound like you?

Check out some of the best places to see the Northern Lights below.

1. Fairbanks, Alaska

This is one of the best places from which you can view the Northern Lights. The dark nights, clear skies, and cold weather offer you ideal aurora viewing conditions.

If you are worried about the cold temperatures, you can view the lights near the steaming hot springs. You can often see the aurora from anywhere in Alaska. However, the best viewing site is at Fairbanks which is located in the “auroral oval”.

The Northern Lights are available for your viewing pleasure throughout the year. However, the best time is during the winter months.

2. Reykjavik, Iceland

This is one of the cheapest and most accessible sites for you to view the Northern Lights. However, you may need to leave the cities to get dark skies. This offers you a clear, uninterrupted view.

There are many Northern Lights tours available. You can opt for a tour in a four-wheel drive vehicle or a boat cruise, from which you can admire the Aurora, in all its glory.

3. Canada

Most of Canada falls under the “auroral oval”. However, you will be guaranteed the best Northern Lights view in the sparsely populated province of Yukon. There is virtually no light pollution in this area, thus offering you a fantastic view of the lights.

To avoid the harsh winter conditions, it would be best if you go during the autumn season. You can also try visiting during the March equinox. During this time, there is an increase in solar activity and this will give you an unforgettable view of the lights.

4. Norway

This is one of the most magical places you can check out the Northern Lights. Norway is a comfortable place to view them, and you can choose from a variety of aurora viewing options. It is also quite easy for you to get around this beautiful country.

The best place to view the aurora is Tromso. Other places you can try out include Harstad and the Lofoten Islands. An ideal time to visit would be between October and March.

5. Finland

From September to March, the lights shine almost every other night in Finland. You can view the aurora from just about anywhere, so long as you are away from the cities. However, be warned as, during these months, it can get quite cold.

You can even opt to view the lights from a glass igloo as you keep warm in bed.

The Northern Lights are a sight to behold. If you get the chance, you can visit any one of these places to see this amazing natural spectacle.

So go on ahead and plan that well-deserved vacation. Make a point of visiting the best places to see the Northern Lights.

Fighting perinatal mood and anxiety disorders on multiple levels

Over the past several decades, it’s become increasingly recognized that perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMADs), including postpartum depression, are more than just “baby blues.” They’re the most common complication of childbirth in the U.S., affecting about 14 percent of women in their lifetimes and up to 50 percent in some specific populations. PMADs can lead to a variety of adverse outcomes for both mothers and their babies, including poor breastfeeding rates, poor maternal-infant bonding, lower infant immunization rates and maternal suicides that account for up to 20 percent of postpartum deaths.

No Time Limit on Equality: Tell Congress to Ratify the ERA!

The Equal Rights Amendment makes a simple promise: “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.”

The 2018 election victories declared that feminists were a force to be reckoned with, and that we will not go back. But the fight goes on, and this is a critical moment for us to move forward and advance equality. That’s why Ms. and the Feminist Majority Foundation will be taking to the streets at Women’s Marches across the country this weekend to grow support for the Equal Rights Amendment—and demand that Congress remove the time limit for its ratification.

You don’t have to find our team in the crowd to take action: You can send your Representative and Senators an email today urging them to put women in the U.S. Constitution and help pass the ERA.

More than ever, it’s time for us to demand that the nation fulfill its promise of equality for all—and guarantee women the same.

Carmen Rios is the Digital Editor at Ms. , co-host of TRIGGER HAPPY on Binge Networks and co-founder of Argot Magazine. Her work has also appeared at BuzzFeed, Bitch, Mic, MEL, Everyday Feminism and Autostraddle. Like everyone else in LA, she once had a podcast; unlike everyone else, she stays pretty zen in traffic.

And we didn’t see this coming…

Game of Thrones season eight is on its way – and we officially can’t wait.

Our past few months have been dominated by GoT news and updates, from the emergence of the teaser trailer to theories about what’s to come in Westeros.

But it wasn’t Sophie Turner confessing to being banned from washing her hair during filming or Maisie William talking about her final scene that had the world talking today.

Instead it was Kit Harington that made news when he confessed to Zoe Ball that he had kept one of his GoT props as a momento.

Kit Harington as Jon Snow

But what did he take with him to remember his Game of Thrones days? His iconic coat? His sword? His direwolf, Ghost?

Nope. As it turns out, Kit opted to take a statue of his character, Jon Snow, that appears in the season 8 teaser trailer.

‘I kept that statue. You know, the one in the crypt?’ he reportedly told Zoe Ball. ‘I kept it. They sent it to my house so I’ve got it in my shed.’

Yes, this is not a drill. Kit Harington has a statue of Jon Snow in his shed.

‘How sad is that?’ he laughed. ‘I was the only one who kept their statue. That’s how narcissistic I am.’

And as for what he’s planning to do with the prop, he explained: ‘I’m going to turn it into a water feature.’

We wonder how Rose Leslie feels about this!!

Either way, we cannot wait for season eight.
