‘Venom’: 10 Crucial Terms You Need to Know Before You See It

On October 5, Tom Hardy (and a heavy dose of CGI) will bring the beloved Spider-Man villain Venom to the big screen. For die-hard comics fans, bringing Venom to life in his own film has been decades in the making. For the casual moviegoer, however, deciphering the complex mythology surrounding alien symbiotes and shadowy foundations might seem daunting, to say the least. To help, here are some names and concepts likely to play a role in Venom.

1. The Symbiote Costume

Goth Spider-Man — skull rings sold separately.

In Secret Wars, Spider-Man — along with other heroes and villains — is whisked away to a far-off planet by the all-powerful Beyonder. There, a machine Spider-Man discovers produces a black sphere that attaches to him and turns into a costume, a black version of his traditional red-and-blue threads. Not only does it take the form of any clothing Peter imagines, it also enhances his strength and ability. Spidey makes the strange material his new costume.

Back on Earth, the costume begins to misbehave — taking over Spider-Man’s body while he sleeps and attacking people on its own. Peter discovers the costume is actually a living, sentient alien attempting to bond permanently with him. He tries to rid himself of the costume but it refuses to let Peter go. Knowing that sonic waves hurt it, Spider-Man is able to seemingly destroy it by overloading it with the sounds of church bells.

2. Venom


Venom looming over Spider-Man
What’s black and white and… never mind.

The symbiote manages to survive in the church until disgraced reporter Eddie Brock — who blames Spider-Man for ruining his career — happens upon it. Sensing the shared animosity toward Spider-Man, the symbiote bonds with Brock, forming the creature known as Venom. Venom’s combined hatred of Spider-Man causes him to attack Spider-Man and terrorize his loved ones.

Eventually, Spidey stops Venom and an uneasy truce is formed. Venom agrees to end his vendetta if Spider-Man agrees to leave him alone. Venom eventually becomes something of a vigilante, returning to San Francisco and protecting the homeless there. As an anti-hero, Venom avoids killing innocents but has no problem taking the lives of those who would seek to harm them.

3. Klyntar


The Klyntar
It’s impossible to get a hotel during the Symbiote Convention.

The Venom symbiote is actually a member of an alien species known as the Klyntar who hail from the planet of the same name. Symbiotes, as a species, are shape-shifting alien beings who seek hosts with which they form a symbiotic bond. Created by the malevolent god Knull, the Klyntar rebelled and imprisoned him on Klyntar, a planet of their own creation.

The Klyntar bond with host species to form a new entity, in much the way Spider-Man’s symbiote costume bonded with Eddie Brock to form Venom. Each host creates a distinct entity, and over the centuries, the Klyntar’s symbiotic bonds have added much to the Klyntar essence, including alien concepts such as honor and peace. Because of this, not all symbiotes are malicious, but even the “good” ones are the product of an evil god.

4. Knull


Knull, God of the Klyntar.
Knull, God of the Klyntar.

The God of the Symbiotes, Knull is a powerful being older than the universe itself. He possesses godlike powers and uses them against the Celestials, who were busy creating the universe. He even created a sword, All-Black, from his shadow. Angered that darkness would be broken by the light of creation, he wages war against the other gods.

To aid in his fight, Knull creates an army of symbiotes to lay waste to countless worlds. After a battle with Thor, Knull finds himself trapped in the symbiote dragon Grendel, breaking his hold on the symbiotes he’d created. The symbiotes then turn on their god and imprison Knull’s body on their homeworld.

5. Symbiote Imperium

Soldier of the Imperium.

After freeing themselves from the control of Knull, the Klyntar hive-mind, influenced by the many benevolent hosts the symbiotes had bonded with, decides to leave their dark past behind and become a force for good in the universe. However, the Klyntar with corrupt hosts reject this idea and are shunned from the hive mind.

The renegade symbiotes form the Symbiote Imperium, an army of destruction designed to continue the Klyntar’s original purpose of bringing death and devastation to the universe. So successful is the Imperium that the name Klyntar becomes synonymous with evil, despite the existence of so many peaceful symbiotes. Venom was once a member of the Imperium.

6. Carnage


Carnage
He makes Venom seem easygoing.

Venom’s arch-nemesis (outside of Spider-Man), Carnage is “born” when the Venom symbiote breaks Eddie Brock out of prison. Demerged from the symbiote, Brock is sent to a prison for non-powered humans where he shares a cell with vicious serial killer Cletus Kasady. Among other crimes, Cletus killed his grandmother, tortured his mother’s dog, and burned down an orphanage.

In the haste to escape, Venom leaves a piece of itself behind. That piece bonds with Kasady, forming the symbiote known as Carnage. Far more violent and powerful than any other symbiote, Carnage’s bloodlust leads him on a vicious murder spree. Only by joining forces are Spider-Man and Venom able to defeat the deadly symbiote. Carnage’s presence in Venom has not been officially announced, but fans are hopeful he’ll make an appearance, even if it’s only a cameo.

7. Riot


Riot
Just your everyday symbiote throwdown.

A symbiote created from the Venom symbiote, it originally bonds with mercenary Trevor Cole. Reportedly the film’s main antagonist, Riot instead bonds with Dr. Carlton Drake, who created Riot and its siblings in the comics. In Venom: Lethal Protector, the Life Foundation creates five symbiote “children” from extracts of the Venom symbiote. Riot proves to be the most violent and unstable of the bunch.

The symbiotes are to serve as the guardians of the Life Foundation. Unfortunately for the foundation, the symbiotes choose to test their newly acquired abilities on Spider-Man and a very peeved Venom. Ultimately the symbiotes, including Riot, are artificially aged to dust by Venom, and their powerless hosts are caught in an explosion. Eventually, though, both the symbiotes and the hosts return, because comics.

8. Dr. Carlton Drake and the Life Foundation


Dr. Carlton Drake in front of members of the Life Foundation.
“This probably won’t end in our violent deaths.”

The Life Foundation, led by Carlton Drake (played by Riz Ahmed in the film), is a survivalist organization convinced that doomsday is right around the corner, particularly in the form of nuclear holocaust. The foundation dedicates itself to preparing for that outcome, building fallout shelters to protect the wealthy elite. Through his foundation, Drake has stolen, kidnapped, and even murdered to further his group’s goals.

Drake seeks to employ superpowered individuals to protect the foundation’s clients, kidnapping them if necessary. In San Francisco, Drake and his partner, Roland Treece, attempt to steal gold buried under the city. Drake uses a captured Venom to create five new symbiotes — Riot, Scream, Agony, Phage, and Lasher.

9. Genetic Memory and Parasitic Inheritance


Venom's human host talking to onlookers.
Be careful who you loan your sentient clothes to.

All symbiotes gain abilities through Parasitic Inheritance, the ability to mimic powers and skills through interfacing with the host’s genetic code. In the case of Venom, it was able to mimic Spider-Man’s wall-crawling powers and even his web shooters. When the symbiote passed to Eddie Brock, it retained these abilities, gaining new ones as it passed from host to host.

Genetic Memory, in the case of the symbiotes, refers to the ability to access information by tapping into the memories of its host. It can even recall memories of previous hosts, much to Spider-Man’s dismay. Venom was able to track down Spider-Man — and terrify Mary Jane — because the symbiote knew his secret identity from having already bonded with him.

10. Venom: Lethal Protector 


Venom Lethal Protector cover
Venom’s debut solo outing.

After Venom’s immensely popular run as a Spider-Man villain and occasional reluctant ally, Marvel gave Venom his own limited series, the eight-part Venom: Lethal Protector. The series sees Eddie Brock return to his hometown of San Francisco, having given up his vendetta against Spider-Man. While there, he turns to vigilantism, particularly helping a group of homeless people living under the city.

Venom soon runs afoul of the Life Foundation, who capture him and extract five “offspring” from the symbiote. These new symbiotes bond with volunteers to become the guardians of the Life Foundation. With Spider-Man’s help, Venom defeats the guardians and ruins the foundation’s plans to steal an underground gold deposit. The film is reportedly based in part on this mini-series.

Hedi Slimane Gives First Interview At Celine

PARIS – Hedi Slimane has given his first interview since his nomination at Celine to French daily newspaper “Le Figaro.” The famously discreet designer spoke to journalist Laurence Benaïm in Tuesday’s issue of the newspaper.
The interview comes days before his debut collection at Celine, which will be unveiled on Sept. 28 during Paris Fashion Week.
“I am delighted to come back to a French house, a tradition, professions, ateliers,” said Slimane. “Paris is the best at ‘handmade,’ which is incredibly chic. Beyond the virtuosity of the ateliers, this savoir-faire is due to a state of mind, a way of working, the immediate understanding of a model, a particular feeling that can only be found in Paris.”
He explains that an additional atelier has been added to the 17th century mansion that houses Celine’s headquarters, the Hôtel Colbert de Torcy in the 2nd arrondissment, which will be dedicated to the creation of Celine’s first men’s wear line.
Upon arriving at Celine, Slimane chose to rebrand the maison by taking the French accent off the house’s name.
“It’s in no way about marking my territory, quite the contrary,” said the designer, adding that it was his way of “putting the church back at the center of the

Doris Kearns Goodwin: What We Need in a President Is Not What We’ve Got

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast

The midterm elections are on November 6, and—like it or not—the presidential election will start on November 7. Republicans will almost certainly re-nominate Donald Trump (if he’s still in office), but Democrats will have a long list of potential nominees who will spend 2019 and into 2020 hiring staff, raising money, and debating each other in way too many cable-news beauty pageants.

Debates tell us very little about what kind of president a person would be, so let’s just skip them.

“When Tim Russert was still alive, he and I talked in 2008 about wishing we had a different way to talk about presidential campaigns than who won a debate or who has raised the most money,” says historian Doris Kearns Goodwin. “We should look at their leadership as governors or mayors or congressmen and see whether they had a strong team, whether they acknowledged errors, whether they controlled their behavior. Temperament is key, and I wish we had known more about that before the 2016 election.”

Losing my dad felt like losing my connection to my Latinx culture

Losing my dad felt like losing my connection to my Latinx culture


Losing my dad felt like losing my connection to my Latinx culture

September 15th through October 15th is Latinx Heritage Month.

Spending time with my dad in our Southern Texas town of Corpus Christi was always an adventure. Whether it was an early morning trip to the neighborhood carniceria to get barbacoa for breakfast or a visit to his favorite nursery to check out the perennials, my dad made everything about our culture feel accessible to me. He could walk into any space and instantly be at home. His habit of talking to every person he met in his friendly, fast-flowing mix of Spanish and English helped to quickly endear him to others. Strangers became his friends, friends became his family, and family was something to be treasured above all else. My father’s ability to make friends wherever he went created so many adventures for his children. And when I accompanied him to these places—a flower shop, a panderia, or some distant relative’s home—I felt like I had a touch of the magic he possessed, too.

Of course, it wasn’t technically magic that opened these worlds to my father. It was his birthright and his culture—an ancestry built on the offspring of indigenous Northern Americans of South Texas and Mexico and their Spanish colonizers.

A background rich in color and flavor, toil and subjugation, mysticism and piety. All places linked by taste, sound, and a mother tongue.

He made me feel perfectly accepted and comfortable in his heritage, but being of mixed blood meant that I never fully felt entitled to those sacred spaces and inherited rights without my father as my guide.

I didn’t anticipate losing him so soon.

His initial cancer diagnosis was dire, but optimistic PET scans gave us every reason to be hopeful. But when he got the news that the cancer had spread to his bones, we could no longer postpone the inevitable. Dad left us less than 3 weeks later.

Without my father, that magic was gone. Once I lost that physical connection to him upon his death, I was cut off from his endless love and support. The spark he brought to my life simply by being in it left me suddenly. But it wasn’t just him that disappeared.

I lost a connection to the Latinx community that I felt certain I could only get through my dad.

That specific hurt feels all the more noticeable during this time of year. September 15th marks the start of National Hispanic Heritage Month, and with it comes the reminder of all the adventures I shared with my father—along with the ones that never got to happen.

But if I take time to be introspective, those feelings of loss as a Latina didn’t start with the death of my dad.

As a mixed person, I’ve never felt fully entitled to my Latinidad. Even at my most suntanned, I’ve always been fair skinned. “Weda,” a word used by Mexicans for light skinned Europeans and Americans, was a common nickname, but anyone who knows our culture knows that it’s not a term of endearment. It’s a label of otherness.

Besides not “looking the part,” I also only understood enough Spanish to follow orders, and only spoke enough to answer back. My dad always joked that he didn’t teach my sister and me the language so that we’d never have the words to disobey our white mother.

I know his hesitation had more to do with what he experienced as a child during the mandated integration of schools in South Texas. Texas was especially late to desegregation—the last school not complying until the 1980s—and Latinx students paid the price. Spanish may have flowed easily for dad as an adult, but during his elementary school years, his culture was suppressed. He was forced to assimilate or face punishment.

Belittled by teachers and administration, Latinx children—like Black children during desegregation—were given the least desirable accommodations and tools. Growing up in an educational system that saw them as less than their white classmates, my dad and the rest of the Latinx student body were devalued because of their heritage, families, and homes.

I wonder if he thought of his own forced assimilation when he spoke to me as a child, when I cried about not fitting in to our predominantly Latinx neighborhood, when I begged him to help me learn how to roll the double r’s in our last name—a goal we both knew I’d never master because of my lisp. Did he ever watch me and my sister lip synching and dancing to Selena, and realize that his school’s assimilation practices might not have worked as well as they’d hoped?

I never had to prove my Latinidad to my dad. It was never a prerequisite to get his advice or go on his adventures; he never placed limitations on his love based on how “Latina” I could be. While the physical connection to my dad is gone, it feels like it’s still there—like a phantom limb. It’s funny, in a heartbreaking sort of way; I can still feel the love and acceptance flowing through it, from him to me.

And, if I can still feel that, perhaps the connection to my Latinx culture isn’t as far away as it feels.

Ask an Expert: Backlit Bathroom Mirrors

Why should I choose a backlit mirror for my bathroom?

A backlit mirror is both a stylish and functional choice for a modern bathroom! The backlit mirror eliminates the need for sconces or vanity lights, giving you a more streamlined look that becomes a dramatic focal point while still providing a nice, ambient secondary light source.

Backlit mirrors use long lasting LED light strips that are very energy efficient and offer even lighting with no unflattering shadows which is great when applying makeup as well. Additional features, like heating pads that prevent fogging or options like dimmable lights and bluetooth speakers can also add extra functionality for a luxurious touch! – Michelle Dixon, www.modernbathrooms.ca

Jimmy Kimmel Wants to Cut Brett Kavanaugh’s Penis Off

ABC

Jimmy Kimmel came out guns blazing against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh on Monday night after a second woman came forward to accuse him of sexual misconduct over the weekend. “Only 12 more and he can run for president,” he joked.

Since he tapes his show on west coast time, Kimmel may have been the only late-night host to include clips from Kavanaugh’s bizarre Fox News interview in which he defended himself against the allegations by explaining that he was a virgin through high school and into college.

“Thank you for admitting that,” Kimmel said. “He was a virgin until many years after. So if he doesn’t get to be on the Supreme Court, maybe he’ll be The Bachelor.” This led the host to reports that Kavanaugh plans to use calendars he kept in high school to dispute the claim that he was at the party where Christine Blasey Ford said he tried to rape her. “What 17-year-old keeps calendars of his social engagements?” he asked. “No wonder he was a virgin.”

6 Gas Rewards Programs to Try if Fuel Prices Are Draining Your Savings


Grocery store loyalty programs used to be the way to go to save money on gas, but now that gas stations are offering their own fuel rewards programs, times are changing.

And because gas prices are the highest they’ve been since 2014, you’ll want to save every penny you can while you’re filling up that tank.

6 of the Best Gas Station Rewards Programs

So if you’re on the hunt for cheap gas, check out this list of the best gas station rewards programs, plus some bonus tips for using free gas apps to save even more.

1. BP Driver Rewards

BP gas station logo is pictured
Chris Zuppa/The Penny Hoarder

BP Driver Rewards offers 10 cents off per gallon for every $ 100 you spend on fuel purchases of up to 20 gallons. So if you have a 10-gallon tank, you’ll save $ 1 for every $ 100 you spend on gas.

If you’re a frequent flyer, you can earn 2 MileagePlus miles per gallon if you purchase regular or midgrade fuel, or 3 miles per gallon if you use premium-grade fuel.

You’ll also receive 200 bonus miles after you link a debit or credit card and make your first transaction. If you don’t use your miles, you can use them toward fuel purchases — 60 MileagePlus miles equals 50 cents off per gallon on up to 20 gallons, for a maximum of $ 10 off per fill-up.

To find participating stations, search your ZIP code in the station finder and filter by “BP Driver Rewards,” or download the BPme app for Android and iPhone.

To pay using the app, simply open the app and select your pump number — your location should automatically be recognized as long as you have enabled location settings for the app.

2. Exxon Mobil Rewards+

After parting ways with Plenti, Exxon Mobil launched its own rewards program — Exxon Mobil Rewards+.

This points-based system awards 3 points per gallon on fuel purchases, plus 2 points for every $ 1 you spend on car washes and convenience store items. The program also offers a sign-up bonus of 100 points and 15 points per gallon for the first 30 days.

Members can redeem points on fuel, car washes and store items, with every 100 points equaling up to $ 1 off. Let’s say you have a 10-gallon tank and are earning 3 points per gallon. That means you’ll only have to fill up a little over three times to earn enough points for $ 1 off fuel and other purchases — not too shabby. Combine that with any points you earn on car washes and in-store items, and you have an even better deal.

You can also keep track of your rewards in the Exxon Mobil Speedpass+ app for Android and iPhone. You’ll need to register an account for the app separate from your Exxon Mobil Rewards+ account. You can then link your rewards account via your rewards card or phone number.

The Speedpass+ app also allows you to search for nearby Exxon and Mobil stations and pay for gas right from your phone using Samsung Pay or Apple Pay.

3. Maverik’s Adventure Club

Located in several states across the Northwest, Maverik is another gas station offering its own fuel rewards program: Maverik’s Adventure Club. This program offers two rewards cards: the Adventure Club card and the Adventure Club Nitro card.

The Adventure Club card offers 2 cents off per gallon on fuel purchases. Card holders can also earn Trail Points through fuel and in-store purchases, excluding gift cards, lotto tickets, tobacco products and alcohol. You can use Trail Points to buy store items or win prizes in weekly drawings. And if you stop by Maverik on a Tuesday, you’ll earn triple points for Triple Trail Point Tuesday.

The Adventure Club Nitro card offers all of the same benefits and a little bit more, including 6 cents off per gallon, double Trail Points from purchases, price matching and $ 1 fountain drinks and refills — that includes the 64-ounce drinks.

The main difference between the cards is the Adventure Club Nitro card must be linked to your checking account, and you must pay using the card to save on fuel and earn points.

Track your Adventure Club rewards by logging in to the website or through the free app for Android and iPhone.

4. Pilot Flying J

While Pilot Flying J’s rewards program was built with professional and RV drivers in mind, all PIlot Flying J customers ages 18 and older are eligible to join the myRewards program with the Preferred Customer Rewards card.

With the Preferred Customer Rewards membership, you can save 3 cents for every gallon of fuel purchased and earn points for in-store purchases. You’ll also gain access to the Coffee Club, which awards a free cup of coffee after every ninth coffee purchase, and you can enjoy a free dessert during your birthday month.

You can manage your rewards using the myPilot app. You can start the pump and pay right through the app — and if there’s a line, the app has a feature that shows you which pump is most likely to open up next.

The app also allows you to track your receipts, find fuel prices and search for local places to eat, plus, it gives you exclusive offers.

5. Shell Fuel Rewards

Chris Zuppa/The Penny Hoarder

I’ve been using Shell Fuel Rewards for the last few months, and at the very least, I save a few cents per gallon every time I fill up. On one fill-up, I saved 18 cents per gallon.

Shell Fuel Rewards has two tiers: Silver Status, which saves 3 cents per gallon on fuel purchases and Gold Status, which saves you 5 cents per gallon.

To reach Gold Status, you only need to fill up six times within three months. And if you purchase at least eight gallons four times within 30 days, you’ll receive 10 cents off per gallon on your fifth fill-up.

Shell Fuel Rewards offers additional savings that can be stacked on to your status, including 25 cents off per gallon for referrals, 25 cents off per gallon for shopping and 10 cents off per gallon for dining. You can earn additional savings for booking flights, hotels and rental cars through Fuel Rewards offers.

So let’s say you earn Gold status, then another 25 cents off per gallon for shopping online and another 10 cents off for dining out. That means you’ll get a total of 40 cents off per gallon on your next fill-up of up to 20 gallons. If you stack on a referral, that’s a total of 65 cents off per gallon.

You can also earn more through featured offers and card-linked offers.

You must opt in to the link-and-save feature. Just be warned that card-linked and featured offers can take up to seven business days to process.

6. Speedway Speedy Rewards

Just like Shell’s program, Speedway Speedy Rewards is packed with a ton of ways to save, and it comes with a free mobile app to keep track of it all.

With Speedy Rewards, you’ll earn 10 points per gallon at the pump and 20 points per dollar spent in-store, plus bonus points on select items. You can also earn reward points for shopping online through the Speedy Rewards Mall.

And if you want to use points for free stuff, a minimum of 1,000 points gets you free drinks and snacks, while 5,500 points can get you a whole large pizza.

You can earn even more free stuff when you become part of the Speedy Club. All you have to do is purchase one item from the club, and you’re in!

With the Speedy Club, if you frequent the car wash, you can earn a free wash for every sixth you purchase. And if you’re all about the coffee, fountain drinks and Speedy Freezes, you can be part of the Beverage Club — which allows you to choose a reward for every six beverages you buy. This could be a free beverage, 1,000 bonus points or 10 cents off fuel.

You can also choose between four monthly perks. Current options include 200 bonus points with the purchase of 10 gallons of gas, 100 points per day with the purchase of king-size candy bars, 100 points per day with the purchase of sports drinks or 100 points per day with the purchase of energy drinks.

As an added perk for using the Speedy Rewards Pay Card, you’ll earn double points each time you purchase fuel, plus you’ll save 5 cents per gallon on all fuel purchases for the first 90 days. In certain states, you’ll earn 70 bonus points per gallon of fuel purchased for the first 90 days instead of 5 cents.

Bonus: Save Even More on Fuel With These Free Gas Apps

If you’re into saving even more money on gas, there are a couple of free apps you can use in combination with your preferred gas station rewards program.

1. GetUpside

GetUpside is a free mobile app for iPhone and Android that offers fuel rewards in the form of cash back. Coverage areas are currently limited to Washington, D.C., Maryland, Virginia, Long Island, New York, and Florida.

The app provides a map of the nearest gas stations and lowest fuel prices, along with an offer to earn cash back. Gas prices are updated in real time; however, because prices are always changing, the amount listed in the app may not always be accurate. If you find an inaccurate price listing, you can update the prices through the app.

To accept a cash back offer, you simply hit “claim,” then pay with your usual debit or credit card. Make sure you get a receipt, because you will need to snap a photo to upload in the app to receive your cash back, which takes 24 to 48 hours to process. You can choose to transfer the funds to your PayPal account or receive a check by mail.

GetUpside cash-back offers can be used in combination with other discounts, coupons and loyalty programs, and there is no limit to how much you can earn. Just keep in mind cash back offers may be reduced when you use them with other loyalty programs. I’ve been using GetUpside for a little over two weeks and already have earned $ 5.25.

P.S. If you live in the D.C. area, you can also use the app to earn up to 15% cash back on groceries and 35% cash back on dining.

2. GasBuddy

Chris Zuppa/The Penny Hoarder

GasBuddy is a free app that helps drivers find the cheapest gas prices across a database of more than 140,000 gas stations and convenience stores in the United States, Canada and Australia. In 2017, GasBuddy added a new feature to help drivers save on gas called Pay with GasBuddy.

Pay with GasBuddy can be used at the pump and is linked to your checking account. The card is currently accepted at most gas stations except for Exxon and Mobil stations, BJ’s, Costco, Sam’s Club, HEB, and select Walmart and ARCO stations.

During account setup, you’ll be asked to choose between receiving 10 cents off per gallon for your first fill-up and 5 cents off per gallon thereafter, or receiving cash back in the form of Shop Your Way points, which can be redeemed for discounts at participating retailers.

Once setup is complete, your Pay with GasBuddy card will be issued by mail.

It can take a few days for the transaction to process. I used my card on July 24, and the transaction didn’t show up in my bank account until July 27.

For more information about the GasBuddy app and the Pay with GasBuddy card, visit the GasBuddy Help Center.

Halle Berry And Lena Waithe To Executive Produce ‘Boomerang’ Sequel For BET

Halle Berry and Lena Waithe, two women with an Oscar and an Emmy respectively between them, have signed on as executive producers for a series based on the 1992 rom-com Boomerang, that starred Berry and Eddie Murphy. Murphy played Marcus Graham a self-centered executive working for a Black-owned cosmetics company while Berry, as Angela, was his love interest. Robin Givens played Jacqueline Boyer, Marcus boss and girlfriend, whose dating-like-a man tactics led to the relationship ‘boomerang’ of the movie’s title.

The movie also spawned the million-selling Boomerang soundtrack that introduced Toni Braxton to the public.

Produced by BET Networks and Paramount Television, the 10-episode half-hour series will premiere in 2019 on BET. This new series will follow the lives of Jacqueline Boyer’s son and Marcus and Angela Graham’s daughter as they try to step out of their parents’ shadows and make a legacy of their own.

“I’m thrilled to team up with Lena on this project as she is without a doubt a leading voice of her generation and a trail blazer in her own right. I’m truly excited to be a part of bringing this iconic and beloved film to the small screen,” said Berry.

“This is less of a reboot and more of a continuation of the original story,” said Waithe. “There’s no point in trying to remake a classic. It can’t be done. So we want to create something fresh that speaks to a new generation. We hope people will come to the show with an open mind and ready to embrace the new world we’ve created!”

Berry will next be seen in John Wick: Chapter 3 as an assassin named “Sofia” opposite Keanu Reeves and Anjelica Huston. She recently announced she’s making her directorial debut with Bruised, in which she will also star. The movie is about the world of MMA fighters.

Waithe, the creator of the Showtime series The Chi won an Emmy for the “Thanksgiving” episode of Master of None, co-written with show star and creator Aziz Ansari.

No word on whether any of the movie’s original actors including Berry, Murphy, Grace Jones, Chris Rock or Robin Givens will make any guest appearances.

Stepfathers’ ‘Cinderella effect’ challenged by new study

Long-held assumptions that stepfathers are far more likely to be responsible for child deaths than genetic parents have now been challenged. Findings suggest that differences in rates of child homicides by stepfathers and genetic fathers are considerably smaller than previous researchers have claimed, and that the relative ages of fathers implicated in these crimes is more significant than whether they are the biological father of the child.

Sixers’ New GM Elton Brand Will Bring Prestige, Trust Back To Position

Duke University produces some of the greatest basketball players, but the thread of intellectual prowess that runs through generations of these true student-athletes is even more remarkable. Duke basketball players become college and pro coaches, NBA executives and even General Managers.

Elton Brand is an African-American who not only took advantage of his opportunity to play ball at one of the nation’s flagship universities but parlayed a potent education into becoming one of two African-American general managers — three of color — in the NBA today.


The Twitter burner account scandal that led to Bryan Colangelo’s resignation — a scandal draped in the attempted character assassination of African-American employees and franchise players — has manifested itself in Brand, a person of color, getting a rare opportunity to lead one of the NBA’s 30 franchises. He joins Knicks GM Scott Perry and Toronto’s Masai Ujiri as men of such distinction.

Choosing Brand is a shrewd move for a franchise that needs to capture the moment that the city is in. Philadelphia has become the center of sports blackness, from the triumphant struggle of rapper Meek Mill to avoid unjust incarceration to the outspoken, politically conscious players on the Eagles Super Bowl-winning team, to the burgeoning wave of interest created by young NBA Kings Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid. An infusion of young, freakishly-talented blood has made Philly an elite franchise again and the poster child for why tanking wins, having accumulated a roster of captivating all-world talent for the first time since the Allen Iverson Era.

Brand, who already proved his savvy as VP of Basketball Operations and GM of Philly’s G-League affiliate, replaces Brett Brown, who was serving as interim GM.

“He spent two years in this organization and has been around this organization,” said NBA TV analyst Steve Smith. “When (he was a player in Philly) and they wanted to bring a vet back for those guys… they brought in Elton Brand to be at the end of the bench and console them in tough moments and consult with those guys and be a big brother type.

Why It’s Time To Invest And How To Get Started

While the President likes to tout the strength of the stock market, which, by the way, started long before he took office, the fact remains that most Americans aren’t benefitting from the stock market boom. In fact, only 54% of American adults have investments in stocks, either directly or through a company sponsored retirement plan.

With regard to African-Americans, the picture is even more grim. Only 36% of African-American adults have investments in stocks.

Yet, throughout history stocks have proven to be one of the best tools for creating and growing wealth, so anyone who is serious about improving their financial situation should definitely include investments in the stock market as part of their overall financial plan.

WHY SHOULD WE GET SERIOUS ABOUT INVESTING OUR MONEY?

To put this in some perspective, let’s use Nike for example, since there’s been lots of talk about either buying Nike products or Nike stock after the company released its new ad campaign featuring former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

If we go back to January of 1985, roughly the time that Nike released the first Air Jordans to the public, shares of Nike were trading at about 13 cents a share. 13 cents!

At that time a pair of those Air Jordans would have cost you $ 65.

Well, if you spent that money on those Air Jordans back in 1985, today you have…well…nothing. I’m sure those shoes have long since been replaced. If you had instead put the $ 65 in a checking or savings account, and earned 1% per year, you would have about $ 90.

Today Nike shares are trading at $ 85.55. That’s a 69,000% increase!

So, if you had taken that $ 65 and bought Nike stock in January of 1985, today you’d have more than $ 45,000!

And before anyone dismisses this example as a one-off success, take note of this:

Between 1991 and today, a period that includes both the dot-com bust and the financial crisis, stocks in general (as measured by the S&P 500) are up more than 700%, while housing prices have increased just 164%.

Most of us simply cannot create the type of wealth that will truly move the needle for ourselves and our families by relying on our own wages or savings accounts alone.

You have to make your money work harder for you.

And speaking of working hard, Nike shares are up about 5% since they released the ad with Kaepernick, which translates to a $ 6 billion dollar increase in Nike’s market value.

How’s that boycott working out?

THAT SOUNDS GREAT, BUT IT ALSO SEEMS COMPLICATED TO A LOT OF PEOPLE. WHAT’S THE BEST WAY FOR PEOPLE TO GET STARTED?

You know, when a lot of us think of investing, we think of movies like Trading Places, and we think that we have to invest in complex things like pork bellies and soybeans.

But in reality, investing doesn’t have to be that complicated. I always suggest that people start by investing in what they know.

For example, I suggest that anyone interested in getting started with investing begin by going through their bank statement for the last few months and taking note of the top 20 places that they spend money.

Of those 20 places, I can almost guarantee that at least 10 of them will be public companies. (Think Apple, McDonalds, Wal-Mart, Netflix, etc.)Those 10 companies become your short list for companies that you could potentially invest in.

Now to be clear, just because you know the company, doesn’t mean that it will be a good investment. At one point we all knew Blockbuster, but of course that company is no longer around.

But by starting with companies that you know well, and doing additional research, you’ll give yourself a much better chance at success.

ONCE I KNOW WHAT COMPANIES I LIKE, WHAT DO I DO NEXT?

The last step is to open an account at a brokerage firm like Fidelity, Charles Schwab, eTrade, TD Ameritrade, etc.

They are all reputable firms and have pretty low costs.

You could also try an app like Robinhood, which doesn’t charge any trading commissions, and there’s another site called Stockpile which is great because it allows you to buy fractional shares of stock in case the amount you’re starting with isn’t enough to buy a whole share.

(So if you don’t have $ 1,900 for one share of Amazon, Stockpile allows you to start with, say, $ 20 of Amazon and you can build from there.)

But the most important thing is not the amount you’re starting with, but rather building the habit of investing regularly and staying on top of your investments.

That’s how you build real wealth over time. If you’re truly serious about learning how to make your money work harder, I’ve created a free Intro to Investing training video to help you get started.

You can find the free training video at http://www.robwilson.tv/investing

How to Watch the ‘Monday Night Football’ Steelers vs. Buccaneers Game Online for Free Tonight

Attention NFL fans: You can live stream the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers game for free tonight on “Monday Night Football” even if you don’t have cable TV.

Yes, the Steelers vs. Buccaneers game tonight is being broadcast by ESPN — a pay channel, available on TV only if you’re a subscriber to a satellite or cable TV package.

But new services from a pair of mobile apps make it possible to live stream NFL games on your phone during the 2018 season totally for free, without requiring any pay TV provider account info. You can’t live stream every NFL game this way, and you can’t use either app to stream games on a TV, but the new services do make it possible to watch “Monday Night Football” online for free.

Also, several live streaming TV services will also allow you to watch the game online for free tonight, by way of free trial periods for new subscribers.

Here are all the details you need to watch the Steelers vs. Bucs “Monday Night Football” game for free tonight.

When Does the Steelers vs. Buccaneers Game Start?

Kickoff for the Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers game is scheduled for 8:15 p.m. ET tonight (Monday, September 24).

The Steelers have yet to win a game in 2018 (they are 0-1-1), while the Bucs are undefeated, after surprising wins over the New Orleans Saints and Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles in the season’s first two weeks. If you’re interested in the betting odds for “Monday Night Football,” most sports books have the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as slight favorites to beat the Steelers tonight.

How to Live Stream the Steelers vs. Buccaneers Game for Free

For the first time this year, the new capabilities of two apps allow you to live stream many NFL games on your phone for free. Both the NFL App and the Yahoo Sports app let you watch the following games online: You can live stream all the games being broadcast locally in your area on Fox and CBS on Sunday afternoons, and you can live stream nationally televised primetime games, including ESPN’s “Monday Night Football,” NBC’s “Sunday Night Football,” and Fox and the NFL Network’s “Thursday Night Football.”

As we reported earlier, there are some restrictions for using the NFL App or Yahoo Sports app to live stream “Monday Night Football” and other games. Namely:

• You can’t watch an app’s live stream on your TV. This is one of the biggest sources of confusion regarding the NFL App and Yahoo Sports apps’ new capabilities. You can use the apps for free streaming to your phone (and in some cases, a tablet), but they cannot be used to screencast games to a TV. So if you were hoping to use an app to cast the game to your 65-inch TV, you’re out of luck.

• You might have to use data, not wifi. Some fans who have been trying to use the apps to live stream NFL games have complained that they were prompted to log in with a pay TV provider account, and that they were instructed to turn off wifi and use their cellular data. What gives?

For the apps to function properly, you must download the latest version. If you have an older version, you may be asked for a pay TV log-in. And while you can live stream most of the games available on the NFL App or Yahoo Sports app while connected to wifi, it seems there are some games that can only be streamed if wifi is turned off. Specifically, it appears as if the “Thursday Night Football” games airing exclusively on the NFL Network can be live streamed with either app only if you’re using data, not wifi. Obviously, that data use has the potential to make “free” streaming a bit more costly, depending on your wireless plan.

How to Watch “Monday Night Football” for Free on TV

Even if you have a big phone, watching sports (and football especially) on that tiny screen is hardly the optimal viewing experience. If you want to watch the “Monday Night Football” Steelers vs. Bucs game tonight on a larger screen, consider signing up for a free trial of a streaming TV service that’ll let you watch online for free tonight on any connected screen you like.

Streaming TV services such as Hulu Live, DirecTV Now, PlayStation Vue, Sling TV, and YouTube TV all have packages that include ESPN, and they all offer five- to seven-day free trials for new subscribers. To watch the Steelers-Buccaneers game for free then, simply register for one of these services and use it to stream the game on a laptop, tablet, TV, or any other preferred screen.

Just remember that if you don’t want to become a paying subscriber, you must cancel the service before the trial period ends. Packages start at $ 25 to $ 45 per month, depending on the provider and channels included.

Also, note that not all streaming TV services include ESPN in packages. The most notable is Fubo TV. Fubo TV’s focus is entirely on sports, but it does not include ESPN, so you can use it for watching “Monday Night Football.”

Shailene Woodley and Ben Volavola’s Dior Show Date

The lights had been shut off in the indoor venue, with rows of beams creating pools of light across the floor. Peering across the space, an excited Lively said it was her first Dior show in around a decade, but the actress, who plays a bigwig fashion p.r. in her latest film, “A Simple Favor,” looked at home in her surroundings. Asked if she was feeling the part, she replied: “Oh, no, no, no, I would not like to do that. They do get a lot of free stuff, though, so that part sounds fun.”
A few rows down, Shailene Woodley was frantically texting her partner, Fijian rugby player Ben Volavola, to make sure he made it to the show on time.

Activists to NFL: ‘Deposit Funds Into Black-Owned Banks’

The Seattle Medium is reporting that activists in Seattle are calling for the NFL and Seattle Seahawks owner Paul Allen, to deposit 10% of all revenue as well as one-third of the funds making up player pensions, into black-owned banks.

The demands are reportedly spurred by the recent news that Allen, who also co-founded Microsoft, donated $ 100,000 to the Republican Party to help it retain control of the House of Representatives in the midterm elections. According to Federal Election Commission findings, it is the largest political donation Allen has made to an individual or committee.

“I have been out here protesting the economic injustices that have occurred in professional sports and to add insult to injury the owner of the Seattle Seahawks and Portland Trailblazers, Paul Allen donated $ 100,000 to the Republican Party so they can maintain control of the House of Representatives,” said activist Eddie Rye Jr. to The Seattle Medium.

“ESPN, CBS, were bidding over $ 1 billion dollars to have the broadcast rights of NFL games. So out of all the money being generated and the NFL being 70 % black, none of that money is coming back to the black community,” he said.

Rye and several retired NFL players are part of the movement, NFL/Black Community Revenue Sharing Program, to reap benefits for the black community from the economic windfalls black athletes’ talents have provided sports leagues and team owners.

Many black athletes have been inspired to engage in activism since Colin Kaepernick shook up the sports scene by protesting racial injustice with his #TakeaKnee campaign.

In what many considered a bold and risky public relations move, Nike recently made Kaepernick the face if its newest “Just Do It” ad campaign. The decision to use Kaepernick was financially advantageous to the sports apparel company. Ten days after the ad debuted on social media, Nike stock rose to an all-time high on Sept. 13 at $ 83.90 and then closed at $ 83.49 on Friday afternoon. That’s a 4% increase since the ad’s release on Sept. 3, according to CBS News. In addition, Nike’s online sales jumped nearly 31% from Sept. 2 through Sept. 4, which is nearly double the profit that the company garnered during the same period in 2017, according to a research report by Edison Trends.

Michael Kors Brings Pesaresi on Board to Helm Men’s Division

Michael Kors Holdings Limited has named Andrea Pesaresi president of Michael Kors Men’s, effective Oct. 15.
He succeeds Don Witkowski, who passed away in June, and will report to John D. Idol, chairman and chief executive officer.
Pesaresi was most recently ceo of Philippe Model, but prior to that, he spent 25 years at Ermenegildo Zegna, where his most recent role was brand director of Z Zegna and Licensing, a post that encompassed product development, brand strategy, international expansion and marketing. Pesaresi joined Philippe Model, an Italian sneaker brand, at the end of 2016.

Dior RTW Spring 2019

Guests arriving to the venue — the storybook magical grounds of the Longchamp racetrack — came upon a huge, minimalist square construction. Its facade flaunted woman-power signage of the sort that has become a Maria Grazia Chiuri signature at Dior. This time the quotes were from renegade choreographers, among them Pina Bausch (“Dance, Dance, Otherwise We Are Lost”) and Sharon Eyal (“The Story Comes From Inside the Body”).
Point made: This collection would be about dance, a natural topic for fashion and one which many designers have mined. “Dance and fashion define the body and, through discipline, teach us to own it,” read the show notes.
To manifest the connection, Chiuri commissioned a compelling new work from Eyal, whose dancers opened the show and performed throughout. Exquisite. And also problematic, at least if you’re a dress that wants to be noticed. Over the years, fashion has seen some seriously theatrical presentations. But when the Instagram-worthy theatrics, whether impending shark attack or bodies in remarkable motion, are separate and apart from the clothes, they can distract from what’s supposed to be the event’s primary purpose. That’s what happened here. (It didn’t help that the dancers were better-lit than the models.)

Free and fun activities to do in NYC

ADVERTISEMENT


New York City – the Big Apple. We all want a bite of it, right? But more often than not, a trip to New York will cost you more than your average vacation, and depending on where you are in the world; the flights can get pretty pricey. Not to mention how expensive hotels can be! But there are ways to spend less during your trip to New York (which means you can spend more in the shops) as there are hundreds of free activities in and around the city. Bonus.

Central Park

When you think of New York City, you probably think of the Empire State Building, The Statue of Liberty, Times Square and of course, Central Park. Central Park is not famous just because of THAT scene in the Friends intro (which we all obsess over), but this park is full to the brim of history, culture, and fun. And the best part? It’s completely free! The park was originally opened in the 1860s to boost the Manhattan housing prices, but nobody expected it would be as popular as it is today. Spanning over 2.5 miles long, Central Park is full of lakes, bridges, walkways, green spaces and more. On a daily basis, the park is teeming with street performers, food stalls, and some of the most incredible artwork – including the Alice in Wonderland statue, and the John Lennon ‘Imagine’ mosaic.

New York Public Library

If you love books, poems and writing, then you’ll love New York’s Public Library. This century-old building is located on the outskirts of Times Square – and you won’t be able to miss it. Flanked by incredible marble lions (called ‘Fortitude’ and ‘Patience’) this dramatic structure is unlike any other building you’ve ever seen before. But it doesn’t stop there. The inside of the building houses the most amazing reading room, full to the brim with layers upon layers of books, reading desks and traditional reading lamps. Don’t worry if you don’t like reading though, this library also houses some of the most historical American exhibits – including a Gutenberg Bible, an original copy of the Declaration of Independence and over 400,000 maps.

One of the main attractions of any trip to New York City is the Statue of Liberty – but if you’re on a budget, getting up close and personal to the green lady can seem impossible as many ferry tours start from around $ 15 each. However, you don’t have to get on a Statue of Liberty tour to see it properly! The Staten Island Ferry runs through the New York Harbor ferrying Staten Island residents across the water to their home, and is completely free! So rather than shelling out for a tour, hop on the ferry, take in the sights and the Statue of Liberty and then head on back to the city.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, more commonly referred to the Met, is known across the world as an iconic building in New York history, as well as an incredible museum for art. This building offers everything you could possibly want from an art gallery, with collections of multiple eras – including Roman, Byzantine, African, Egyptian, and Greek, as well as modern artwork. The gallery also features the work of some of the most prolific artists in history, including Pablo Picasso, Vermeer, Vincent Van Gogh and Rembrandt. As if this wasn’t enough, the Met also houses artifacts like costumes, weapons, musical instruments and more. But if you’re not that interested in art, then you might just want to visit the Met to sit on the steps and follow in the footsteps of the Upper East Side Queen, Blair Waldorf…

Times Square

If you want to visit Times Square, you’re going to want to take your sunglasses. Known to many as the Crossroads of the World, Times Square is one of the brightest, biggest and busiest places across the globe. Times Square is the home to Broadway, as well as intense adverts, screens, and music. And of course, the yellow New York cab. The best time to visit Times Square is on New Year’s’ Eve, where you can hang around the square to watch the iconic ‘ball drop’ which signifies the start of a new year. And it’s all free! That’s what we like to hear.

Two Female Bachelor: Vietnam Contestants Leave Rose Ceremony Together in Surprising Twist

In a never-before-seen twist for The Bachelor franchise, two female contestants competing on the Vietnamese version of the show left the rose ceremony together.

After contestant Minh Thu was left without a rose by bachelor Nguyen Quoc Trung, she professed her love for fellow contestant Truc Nhu before asking her to ditch the show to be with her.

“I went into this competition to find love and I’ve found that love for myself, but it isn’t with you. It’s with someone else,” Thu tearfully told Trung before walking over to Nhu. “Come home with me. Come home with me. Yeah?”

Nhu then explained how she was feeling to Trung, who pleaded with her to stay. “I’m sorry. I really want to get to know you because you’re someone who made me feel special and I haven’t felt that way in a long time,” Nhu said.

“I want to ask, if you decide this, would you feel regretful? This doesn’t change my decision,” he replied. “I’m not going to give this rose to anyone else. You only get one chance in this life, and you need to take it. Only you, not anyone else. I want to let you know that I think you’ll have regret if you continue with what you are about to say.”

Thu and Nhu eventually walked out of the ceremony together. However, People reports that Nhu decided to return following a heart-to-heart with Trung. “After talking to Trung, I’ve changed my mind to accept this rose and continue this journey,” she said.

The Games We’re Looking Forward to in the Next Few Months

Every now and then we look forward, to the tune of a few months, and try to discern the best of the bunch. This will naturally be an extra special edition of this staple. Not only are we getting into the typical holiday madness, but this seems to be an extra busy year, full of quality.

OK, it kind of feels like we say that every year, but 2018 marks the return of two franchises that are far from annual appearances: Red Dead and Fallout. Those, on top of the already released Monster Hunter World, Marvel’s Spider-Man and God of War, make this a stellar year already.

And that’s before we even take into account the reliable regulars we’ll see soon. Even familiar faces like FIFA can put up a surprisingly thoughtful entry, raising the quality of the year as a whole. We’re yet to see how Call of Duty and Battlefield will fare, but we’ll definitely be playing to find out.

Red Dead Redemption 2

The biggest no-brainer in a list populated mostly with no-brainers. Red Dead Redemption 2 is actually Rockstar’s first game on this generation of hardware. That’s how long it’s been, and fans are all kinds of keen.

We’ve played a couple of hours, and walked away with some thoughts about the tiny, conversation-worthy moments the game is full of, as well as seeing how the new horse system works, and why maintaining your guns is a lot more important this time around.

Fallout 76

It almost feels as if the franchise itself has been locked underground for ages, about to step into the light again. This is hallowed ground though, because Fallout 76 is going back to the very first vault that opened on Reclamation Day.

As for the new features, though? It’s not exactly classic Fallout. This newer game is an online experience, in which everyone you encounter is a real player. You’ll be able to turn this off, but the game is designed with cooperation and PvP in mind.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey

After a hiatus of a few years, the Assassin’s Creed franchise was back with a bang last year in Origins. Now, Odyssey is a game that very much follows suit. It’ll use the same combat system that doesn’t choreograph the whole fight for you. If you miss, it’ll let you miss.

That said, we’ve been looking at the skills present in Odyssey, and they look a lot more inventive and outside-the-box. You have Ghost Arrows that can go through walls, and certain shots that do +800% Hunter Damage.

We’re not sure what we can do with all that yet, but we’re keen to find out what interesting assassinations we can pull off.

Darksiders III

Consider the size of Darksiders III, there are some very big shoes to fill here. The action franchise follows various horsepeople of the apocalypse, making it as if each game features a different RPG class. Now that we’ve seen the tanky War, and the roguey Death, it’s on to Fury — a chain-wielding warrior capable of Devil May Cry-esque air combos.

You can check out what it’s like to fight the first boss in the above video, or in our preview. Here’s hoping there’s a similar variety in the gameplay, such as the Shadow of the Colossus moments from the last game.

Soulcalibur 6

Also known as “The Geralt one,” this fighting game is bringing in the star of such games as The Witcher and The Witcher 2, and believe it or not, The Witcher 3. The White Wolf will face off against series regulars like Kilik and Mitsurugi on cramped platforms where falling off is absolutely possible. All done with an epic voiceover to remind you how epicly epic your fights are.

We’ve previously written about how we’re not the biggest fan of the Critical Edge system the game brings in, but it shouldn’t affect serious play too much. It’s moreso an unnecessary nod to newer players that oversimplifies the Soulcalibur system. It sure looks purdy, but it’s not a great fit.

But that doesn’t change the fact that the Soulcalibur 6 fighting system will be fantastic. We can’t wait to engage in footsies and distance management with Kilik’s staff. Not to mention this one comes out a few months ahead of Dead or Alive 6.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4

You knew it was coming, and it finally happened. Battle royale has made its way into both Call of Duty and Battlefield. Call of Duty will always be Call of Duty, and it’s not known as the most innovative FPS game. But Black Ops 4 does take place in our favourite setting: Not World War II.

Early impressions of the new Blackout mode (see: battle royale) have been positive, and it features several older CoD maps stitched into one expanse of high-pitched VOIP and teenage teabaggers. The subseries has come a long way from asking Mason what the numbers mean, but there are always some highly polished campaigns to experience here, and we’ll be doing just that.

Battlefield V

As the perfect segue, Battlefield V won’t feature a traditional campaign — instead, it’s continuing its popular war stories mode, exploring the lesser known tales of World War II. This shooter will focus on areas like Norway or Northern Africa, as opposed to retreading the D-Day landing and conflicts over Paris.

We should re-emphasise how bored we are of World War II, if only to give our next point more weight. When playing Battlefield V, we were completely sold. Hate the setting, but loved the game. It was a lot of fun, and it didn’t take long to realise it.

Building fortifications was somewhat akin to Enemy Territory. You can only build them in pre-approved spots, but the maps are much more open than Enemy Territory‘s ever were. That makes us pretty excited about what routes and lines of sight you can gain or obstruct when trying to get the advantage. There’ll be a lot to learn about any given capture point.


Artifact Valve card game Richard Garriot
Card combat takes place across three separate lanes in Artifact.

Artifact

Valve’s card game based on DOTA 2 is slated for late November, which doesn’t necessarily mean Artifact will actually come out then, but probably. The highly anticipated collectible card game is being designed by the original creator of Magic: The Gathering, Richard Garfield — lending some impressive weight to a project that’ll be entering an already crowded and competitive space.

While Magic remains the least random of all the major CCGs out there, Garfield has defended randomness in videogames and will be incorporating some Random Number Generation (RNG). Much less than the norm established by Hearthstone, mind you. But there’s an inherent randomness after each round, when creeps will spawn in two of the three lanes.

Its three-lane system is an extension of Legends‘ two-lane system, and fits the idea of being based on a MOBA quite well. We’re expecting good things, and hope the RNG is kept to a minimum to keep it competition-worthy.

Phoenix Point

There are a lot of X-COM-likes coming up. We’ve already had Phantom Doctrine to enjoy, and Phoenix Point together with Mutant Year Zero will well and truly scratch that itch. Phoenix Point involves Julian Gallop, designer of the original X-COM, and we were fortunate to catch up with them to talk about the game’s direction.

Thanks to the wonders of crowdfunding, it’s already wildly successful. There’ll be a more involved and strategic metagame on the world map, and you’ll be able to target specific body parts, Fallout style.

This one was pretty hard when we played it earlier this year. Player after player would try and fail the demo mission at the Game Developer’s Conference. They may have tweaked that by now, and expect difficulty settings — but either way, it’s going to be an incredible timesink.

Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden

Another game offering top-down, turn-based tactics, Mutant Year Zero is based on a European board game. Former Hitman developers have joined the project to really nail the stealth portions, and the result is very interesting.

Mutant Year Zero seamlessly switches between real-time stealth and turn-based combat. As soon as you’re “discovered,” the game transitions to turns. Anything you can do beforehand to give yourself an advantage is fair game, but it’ll be a stealth challenge — and you won’t want to get caught out in the wrong spot.

This one also has an interesting way of dealing with RNG. Die rolls still affect whether or not you’ll hit your enemy, but modifiers have drastic effects. The extreme degree of this means you’ll likely see a lot of 0% and 100% indicators. If the shot is 40-60%, you know it must be seriously close. Anything you can do to help yourself first, like destroying the target’s cover, can bump you back up to that 100%.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Oh don’t you worry, we didn’t forget. The series that dominates every fighting game tournament, numbers-wise, is getting its Switch version. We’ve had a play of this one too, and had a lot of fun with the Splatoon character.

You can expect a steady trickle of character and stage announcements until December. After which, every videogame bar and event will have Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the projector, because hey, give the people what they want.

Kylie Jenner’s Secret Pregnancy Gave Kris ‘Anxiety’ — But It Was a ‘Such a Positive Experience’

At long last, Kylie Jenner‘s pregnancy is being openly discussed on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.

Sunday’s episode chronicled the new mom welcoming her first child, daughter Stormi, with rapper Travis Scott on Feb. 1. When the day arrived, Kylie chose to have just her mom Kris Jenner and sister Khloé Kardashian in the delivery room with her, in addition to Scott. And while the other sisters may have been disappointed to be left out, they were mostly relieved that they wouldn’t be blamed if the secret got out. (Though PEOPLE first confirmed the news of the baby on the way in September 2017, Kylie, 21, didn’t publicly address it until after she gave birth.)

“Kylie is about to have her baby and it’s pretty crazy that it really hasn’t been confirmed,” said Kourtney, 39. “So I don’t want to be the one with the info, or getting blamed for someone finding out the secret.”

Kim, 37, marveled that her little sister had some amazing friends for having kept the news under wraps all those months.

“Can you believe that Kylie got out of the hospital with not one report?” she said. “Now Caitlyn can never say we have big mouths and we leak everything. We kept that a secret!”

Momager Kris, 62, admitted keeping a lid on the news wasn’t easy.

“That was a lot of anxiety for me,” she said. “People were saying, ‘We’re going to post, we’re going to announce,’ and I’m like, ‘No!’ But she did it perfectly and it was such a positive experience for her.”

“Totally,” Kim said. “Everyone was just like, ‘Okay, we get it. We get why you kept it private.’ … Kylie’s always wanted to be a mom, so this is really exciting for her. She just didn’t want anyone changing her happy moment and her happy pregnancy, so I’m really proud of her that she stuck to her guns and was able to tell her story her way.”

And Kylie, who said she was “really doing this for myself,” said the experience couldn’t have gone any better.

“I like ” she said. “I miss it. I had the easiest pregnancy ever. You never feel alone — I was really sad to not be pregnant anymore.”

At the end of the day, no one was more proud than Kris, who delivered the baby herself.

“It’s only been a couple of days since Kylie had baby Stormi, and I can already tell that Kylie is going to be the most amazing mom and is so in love with her baby,” she gushed.

But at the same time, the momager was going through a challenging time with a different daughter.

“My relationship with Kourtney over the years has been kind of fabulous, but lately there’s definitely a shift,” she said. “I really don’t know where this is coming from and it makes me really, really sad. I just wish she would make an effort to treat me the way I would love to be treated. I love her so much. She’s my firstborn daughter.”

As it turned out, the tension had started bubbling up after Kourtney’s therapist apparently informed her that she has an “issue with betrayal” because Kris cheated on her father, the late Robert Kardashian Sr., with soccer player Todd Waterman.

RELATED VIDEO: Kris Jenner Calls Cheating on Husband Robert Kardashian ‘One of My Biggest Regrets in Life’

“Lately, in therapy, a lot of topics that have been coming up are about childhood issues and how that affects so many of my relationships today,” she said. “If I had a problem, I wouldn’t go to , ever. I would go to Dad. She was not my person that I found comforting.”

But Kris said Kourtney was “doted on” as a child.

“I think she’s going through a phase in life where she has some anger inside that I don’t quite understand,” she said. “I wish her dad was around to say, ‘You’ve had the best most magical childhood of any child, ever.’ That’s what we prided ourselves on.”

“She probably felt like she was always picking a side and it was always my dad’s,” remarked Khloé, 34. “In the divorce, she picked his. In the trial, she picked his. She wanted to live there over your house. She’s always picked his.”

Khloé said she wished her sister would communicate her feelings more openly with the family.

“I know Kourtney, for some reason, finds more comfort in talking to a stranger about family stuff, rather than talking to the source,” she said. “I would be fine with that if Kourtney took whatever her therapist talked about and then came to the source, but that’s the part we’re missing and that’s what’s frustrating to us all, because we never resolve something or work through something or just even fight about something if we don’t know what’s going on. It’s always us pulling teeth and guessing with her.”

Eventually, Kourtney decided she had to talk things through with Kris.

“If my going to therapy and figuring this all out is making me resentful towards my mom, which is not how I want to feel and it’s not how I want to treat her, then I feel like it is worth having a conversation with her, just to let her know that’s not my intention,” she said. “It’s really about me working on myself.”

“I’ve gone through a phase of being more sensitive to things,” she admitted. “It’s nothing bad, it’s just understanding and then understanding how that affects our current relationships. Like, if there’s certain behavior that Younes will do that’s similar to things that my mom would do, just subconsciously, it will just bring up similar issues. There is that uncomfortable place when you are growing, but I think it’s something that I have to just deal with myself.”

Sitting down with her mom, Kourtney did her best to explain where she was coming from.

“As you know, I’ve been gong to therapy lately and my therapist says your intimate relationships bring up childhood issues,” she said. “I just don’t think it’s fair if I’m not communicating it. I don’t want to go back in time … I feel like it has passed and I’m not feeling that way anymore, but I just wanted to explain that to you so you understand where it’s coming from.”

“What we usually do as a family is we criticize each other, we’re judgmental and we give each other an attitude and we’re bitchy,” she added. “So moving forward in life, I’ve made a point with my sisters already to not accept that anymore.”

RELATED: Kourtney Kardashian Says She’s ‘Ashamed’ of Her ‘Disgusting’ Family: ‘It’s Just Gross’

Tearing up, Kris said all she wanted was “the best, most joyful, peaceful life” for her daughter.

“Whatever it takes for me to be part of that, that’s all I want,” she said. “That’s the joy of my life, is you guys. I have nothing else. I never want you to be disappointed in me, so if there’s something you want to say or something that you need to have me work on, I’m 100 percent ready to work on it because I love you so much. You’re my firstborn and I wouldn’t trade that for anything.”

The two of them hugged it out, and Kourtney agreed to work on things, too.

“Moving forward, I’m going to tell you if I don’t like something or if something is hurtful, instead of just being a bitch about it,” she promised.

“I think Kourtney and I have gotten through that rough patch and started a healing process,” said Kris. “That’s a really big step in the right direction, especially for her. She’s always going to hang onto the past a little bit, but what I am hopeful for is that we can look forward to an amazing future together because I love her more than anything.”

Here’s why Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank had to delay their engagement

Uh oh.

By Rebecca Fearn.

Every bride-to-be wants the spotlight to be on them during their engagement, but it seems Princess Eugenie had to wait her turn.

Reports have surfaced that Eugenie and Jack – who are due to marry on 12 October – had to postpone their engagement because of Prince Harry’s proposal to Meghan Markle.

Allegedly, the couple had decided they wanted to get married as early as last year, but due to the impending royal wedding of Harry and Meghan, they had to delay their official engagement and announcement.

A source revealed the details to Vanity Fair: “It’s my understanding that Eugenie and Jack decided some time ago that they wanted to get married, and there was some talk about a wedding in 2017, but they had to wait for Harry to go first.”

This postponement has left Eugenie’s nearest and dearest feeling that she deserves a big blow-out wedding now:

“The feeling among the Yorks is that she deserves her moment in the spotlight and a big royal wedding with all the frills,” the source added.

However, it sounds as though Eugenie was pretty chill about the whole thing: “There are no bad feelings at all. Eugenie is very close to Harry, and she knows how the system works.”

Roll on October 12 – we hope the Princess gets the big day she’s been waiting for!

Here Are a Few Ways Around Those Rising Airline Baggage Fees


JetBlue did it first. Then United did it. And now, Delta and American have joined their competitors in hiking fees for checked baggage.

It now costs $ 30 each way for the first checked bag and $ 40 for the second bag — up from $ 25 and $ 35, respectively.

In a statement, American Airlines said it hadn’t raised the fees since 2010.

That’s cold comfort to passengers, said Douglas Kidd, executive director of the National Association of Airline Passengers. He said Wall Street is pressuring the airlines, whose stocks are publicly traded, to ratchet up fees to maximize profits.

In the first six months of 2018, United reaped nearly $ 603,000 from baggage fees, according to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics. United took in more than $ 411,000, Delta $ 375,000 and JetBlue $ 150,000.

“Wall Street wants them to upsell,” said Kidd, whose nonprofit advocates for passengers. “We say charge what you need to charge [for a ticket], and don’t nickel-and-dime the passenger to death.”

What You Can Do to Avoid Checked-Baggage Fees

Short of driving or taking a train or bus, passengers have a few options:

  1. Fly Southwest, which still allows passengers to check two bags for free. “Southwest is very proud to offer our Bags Fly Free program,” company spokesman Dan Landson said. “We have no current plans to start charging for checked bags.”
  2. Apply for an airline-branded credit card. Some cards include waived baggage fees. But the terms vary from card to card and annual fees are required, so you’ll have to do the math to make sure the trade-off makes sense for you.
  3. Buy an airline baggage subscription. These pricy plans — United’s start at $ 349 a year, plus a $ 50 initiation fee that currently is being waived — are best for people who fly often. For that price, United allows a traveler and up to eight companions on the same reservation to check two bags each.
  4. Travel light. This obviously is the most practical choice for budget travelers. As a general rule, airlines allow one free carry-on bag small enough to fit in an overhead bin and one personal item such as a purse, computer bag or briefcase, Kidd said. (In basic economy class on American, only a personal item is allowed.) He advises flyers to always pack a change of clothes, clean underwear and a few toiletries in a carry-on bag even if they do check other luggage —  just in case it gets lost.
  5. If you need a large bag, price the parcel rate and ship it a few days in advance if it’s cheaper.
  6. Buy stock in the airline you fly (it doesn’t have to be a lot) and complain to shareholder relations as well as consumer relations. Shareholders have more clout, Kidd said.

“Traveling today is enough to test the patience and equanimity of most passengers,” he said

Care Beyond Compare: Kaiser Permanente Top-Rated by NCQA

OAKLAND Calif. —“I have a great care team around me. Kaiser Permanente has always been there for me.”

Those are the words of Gregory Lee, a 45-year-old former Southern California television personality who nearly died after contracting West Nile virus in 2015. Those sentiments are also at the center of why Kaiser Permanente continues to be rated among the elite health organizations in the nation for treatment, disease prevention and consumer experience in the National Committee for Quality Assurance’s Health Insurance Plan Ratings 2018-2019.

“They brought me back to life,” said Lee, who developed hydrocephalus (a deadly swelling of the brain), was paralyzed and spent nearly 100 days in intensive care.  His courageous attitude — coupled with the expert care he received from Kaiser Permanente infectious disease specialists, cardiologists, neurologists, physical therapy specialists and others — is why today, nearly three years later, he continues to improve and is looking forward to walking his bride-to-be down the aisle.

“Greg basically had to start from scratch and relearn how to eat, talk and walk,” said his fiancée Gina Villasenor.

“Our entire team came together to surround Greg with all the specialty knowledge that was needed to see him through,” said Timothy Jenkins, MD, medical director and chief of staff for the San Bernardino Service Area Medical Center. “All those specialists communicating with one another seamlessly depended on our integrated system of care.”

This level of expert specialty care, compassion and personalized service is what has made Kaiser Permanente a leader in health care. NCQA’s annual report, released today, rates more than 1,000 health plans, including Medicare, Medicaid and Private (commercial), on a 0-to-5 scale, with 5 being the best. Among their findings:

  • Only 14 health plans in the country (approximately 1 percent) received a 5.0 rating this year, and Kaiser Permanente has 9 of the 14.
  • Kaiser Permanente has the highest rated commercial and Medicare plan (or is tied for the highest) in every geographic region it serves. Kaiser Permanente serves more than 12.2 million members in eight states and the District of Columbia.
  • For the third year in a row, Kaiser Permanente is the only health care organization in the country to have a health plan rate 5.0 for both its Medicare and commercial populations.

High 5s for Mid-Atlantic States

Out of more than 1,000 plans rated in the NCQA Health Insurance Plan Ratings 2018-19, Kaiser Permanente Mid-Atlantic States is the only health care entity in the nation to receive a 5.0, the highest score possible, for both its Medicare and commercial (Private) populations.

Nationally, there are only 14 “5 out 5” ratings in NCQA’s annual report, and Kaiser Permanente has 9 of them. Kaiser Permanente’s other 5.0 plans include: Medicare plans in Colorado, Hawaii, Northern California, the Northwest, and Southern California; and Medicaid plans in Virginia and Maryland.

“While it is wonderful to be recognized as a leader in health care, the greatest measure of success is improving the lives of our more than 12 million members,” said Patrick Courneya, MD, executive vice president and chief medical officer for Kaiser Foundation Health Plan and Hospitals.

“I am proud of these results as they shine a light on the work being done by our compassionate and highly skilled physicians, nurses and care teams,” said Michael Kanter, MD, executive vice president and chief quality officer for The Permanente Federation, the national organization for the more than 21,000 physicians who provide care to Kaiser Permanente’s members.

The NCQA’s Health Insurance Plan Ratings are based on combined scores for health plans in the Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set®, commonly called HEDIS; the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems®, or CAHPS; and NCQA Accreditation standards scores.

The ratings and methodology are posted on the NCQA’s website and will soon be posted on WebMD.com.
