Don’t Be Surprised If Hilaria Baldwin Announces a Fifth Pregnancy

Hilaria Baldwin isn’t throwing out her maternity jeans. The yoga instructor, who shares four children with husband Alec Baldwin, admitted she isn’t sure if her family is complete.

“I’ve said, ‘Yes, I’m done, but if I’m honest, I don’t know,” Hilaria revealed at Us Weekly’s Most Stylish New Yorkers party on Wednesday, September 12.

The fitness guru, 34, and the 60-year-old Oscar winner are parents of Carmen, 5, Rafael, 3, Leonardo, 2, and 3-month-old Romeo. Alec shares daughter Ireland Basinger-Baldwin, 22, with is ex-wife Kim Basinger.

Hilaria confessed to Us she feels some pressure from Carmen to have another baby. “She wants a sister, because I have three boys,” she said. “We’ll see!”

For now, the Living Clearly Method author is enjoying being bump-free. “People who say that pregnancy is the best time in their life, I think, ‘How uncomfortable is the rest of your life!?’” the mom quipped to Us.

Minutes arriving at the party, Hilaria received a call that Rafael had split his chin. The star walked the red carpet and then rushed off to meet her family at the emergency room.

While life for the Baldwins is in Hiaria’s words “really crazy” she and Alec make the perfect team. “He is very, very, very, very organized,” she told Us in July, adding that the 30 Rock alum keeps all the toys tidy. He also enjoys playing with them. “A plastic train goes missing and we’ll find it in his office, on his desk,” she laughed at the time. “Like, OK. You’re literally stealing the children’s toys because you like them.”

Alec opened up about his love for his wife of six years years on Tuesday, September 11, telling Us: “Every day I think . . . What is my strategy overall to keep distracting her from the fact that she can do a lot better than me?”

Kaiser Permanente Announces Plan for New Medical Center in Prince George’s County

ROCKVILLE, Md. — Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States plans to open a new state-of-the-art medical center in Prince George’s County, Maryland in 2020. This new medical center in Bowie will support the growing demand for Kaiser Permanente’s award-winning health care and coverage.

Located at 5404 Hillmeade Road in Bowie, the 45,558 square-foot Kaiser Permanente Medical Center will provide primary care, behavioral health, optometry, pharmacy, laboratory and imaging services.

“Kaiser Permanente is proud to add another high-quality medical care center to serve our members who live and work in Prince George’s County,” said Kim Horn, president of Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States. “We are proud to be part of the Prince George’s County community, and we will continue investing in its residents and their total health.”

“Prince George’s County welcomes the Kaiser Permanente Medical Center to Bowie, making it Kaiser Permanente’s fifth medical facility in the county,” said Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker, III. “Over the last eight years, one of my administration’s top priorities has been to attract high-quality medical providers to the county. No other private health care company has invested more into the health of our residents and communities than Kaiser Permanente. We are very thankful for their partnership and appreciate their continued commitment to enhancing access to quality health care for the people of Prince George’s County and the region.”

This Kaiser Permanente Medical Center is scheduled to open in 2020 to provide best-in-class health care to members in the area. Kaiser Permanente has experienced significant membership growth in Prince George’s County — from 99,000 members in 2013 to nearly 140,000 members now.

“Our physicians have been involved in the design of this medical center to ensure that our patients receive the highest quality care,” said Bernadette Loftus, MD, associate executive director of The Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group, which provides care for Kaiser Permanente members in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. “When they come to this new medical center, patients can not only expect the extraordinary care that has earned Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States the No. 1 spot for quality in the nation, but they will also experience the ease of care that comes from having pharmacy, radiology and a laboratory located in the same building.”

Kaiser Permanente is committed to creating a healthy Prince George’s County for all residents. In 2017, the organization invested nearly $ 10 million in the county to support a variety of community health programs, including one that has placed seven nurse practitioners in community clinics, increasing health care access for more than 21,000 residents.

The organization is also helping to foster school environments that enable teachers and students to thrive. Our school grants program provided $ 2,500 grants to 25 schools for teacher wellness initiatives in Prince George’s County in 2017. We are also helping create future economic opportunity for youth by investing in college and career readiness and internships programs for nearly 3,000 high school students.

This is the latest in a series of new facility announcements by Kaiser Permanente.

In June, Kaiser Permanente announced plans for two new medical centers in Northern Virginia. These new medical centers — which will be in Stafford and Haymarket — are scheduled to open in mid-2019 to provide world-class health care to members in Virginia.

Kaiser Permanente also announced its new 40,000-square-foot Alexandria Medical Center at The Exchange in the Potomac Yard area of Alexandria, Virginia. This will be the first Kaiser Permanente medical office building in Alexandria and is scheduled to open in spring of 2019.

In addition, Kaiser Permanente will be the premier tenant occupying 176,000 square feet in a new 200,000-square-foot administrative building, which will have room for approximately 850 employees, in the New Carrollton Transit Center in Prince George’s County. Construction of the administrative building is expected to be completed in November 2018.

Kaiser Permanente has been recognized nationally and regionally as one of the top health plans for excellence in patient care outcomes.

According to the 2017 National Committee for Quality Assurance’s Quality Compass® data for Private/Commercial plans, Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States has more national No. 1 ratings and regional No. 1 ratings than any other health plan in the U.S. for measures of Effectiveness of Care. The organization rated No. 1 in the nation for numerous clinical measures, including Breast Cancer Screening, Controlling High Blood Pressure and Colorectal Cancer Screening, according to the 2017 NCQA Quality Compass® data.

Kaiser Permanente of the Mid-Atlantic States also received the highest possible rating of 5 out of 5 stars from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services for quality and service. This is the sixth year in a row the organization has received 5 out of 5 stars.

With more than 1,500 primary and specialty care physicians available to them, Kaiser Permanente members have access to one of the largest medical groups in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.

The World Surf League Announces Equal Prize Money For Both Male and Female Competitors

WSL PRESS RELEASE

Lemoore, Calif. – Wednesday, Sept. 5, 2018 – The World Surf League (WSL) today announced that it will award equal prize money to male and female athletes for every WSL-controlled event in the 2019 season and beyond, becoming the first and only US based global sports league, and among the first internationally, to achieve prize money equality. The WSL is proud of its commitment to gender equality, and proud to join other organizations beyond the world of sport reaching this important milestone.
WSL CEO Sophie Goldschmidt said, “This is a huge step forward in our long-planned strategy to elevate women’s surfing and we are thrilled to make this commitment as we reveal our new 2019 schedule. This is the latest in a series of actions the League has undertaken to showcase our female athletes, from competing on the same quality waves as the men, to better locations, and increased investment and support.”

Goldschmidt continued, “This change is simply the right thing to do for the WSL and we would like to thank the many advocates who have worked for decades to help advance women’s surfing. We want to be at the forefront of pushing for equality in all walks of life, starting on the waves, and we feel very lucky to have women on our tour who are highly talented, iconic role models, and more than deserve this recognition as they stand alongside our extraordinary male athletes.”

Stephanie Gilmore, six-time World Champion, said, “This is incredible, and I am thrilled. The prize money is fantastic, but the message means even more. From the moment current ownership became involved, the situation for the women surfers has been transformed for the better in every way. We have been so appreciative, but this takes it to another level. I hope this serves as a model for other sports, global organizations and society as a whole. My fellow women athletes and I are honored by the confidence in us, and inspired to reward this decision with ever higher levels of surfing.”

Kelly Slater, holder of 11 World Championships and 55 Championship tour event victories, said, “The women on the tour deserve this change.  I’m so proud that surfing is choosing to lead sports in equality and fairness. The female WSL athletes are equally committed to their craft as the male athletes and should be paid the same.  Surfing has always been a pioneering sport, and this serves as an example of that.”

Kieren Perrow, WSL Commissioner said, “Today is a huge moment for the sport of surfing. With our 2019 calendar (link below), new season and dates, we are proud to confirm the new prize money equality will be in effect.  This covers all WSL-controlled events: the Championship Tour, the Longboard Tour, the World Junior Championships and includes the Big Wave Tour starting on October 1st, 2018 to March 2019. We will be working with our partners at competitions where we don’t control prize money, such as certain Qualifying Series events, to achieve equality as soon as possible.”

The WSL continues to be one of the fastest-growing sports leagues globally, continually expanding its reach and fan base. WSL content and live coverage is now digitally available in every market and over 100 linear broadcasters now cover its events, including this week’s groundbreaking competition at the human-made wave at Surf Ranch. Surfing has also been added to the roster for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games, introducing the sport to new audiences.

In further support of its commitment to women’s surfing, today the WSL also announces three initiatives which will launch in 2019:

  • A global marketing campaign to highlight the women’s tour as well as increase event viewership and fan engagement.
  • An local community engagement program for girls around the world, featuring instructional clinics with WSL athletes at each women’s Championship Tour stop to inspire the next generation to embrace surfing.
  • A monthly content series about the pioneering women of surfing, celebrating them across WSL channels, starting next week with seven-time World Champion Layne Beachley.

Shonda Rhimes Announces 8 New Netflix Original Series

Acclaimed TV producer Shonda Rhimes has eight original Neflix productions in the works. Rhimes, the showrunner who created hit series like How to Get Away With Murder, Grey’s Anatomy, and Scandal, left her longtime home at ABC Studios in 2017 and moved her Shondaland production company to Netflix. In return, the TV mogul signed a lucrative nine-figure deal with the streaming giant.

Rhimes’ first original production on Netflix will be based on the life of Anna Sorokin, a 27-year-old socialite who scammed banks, businesses, and her wealthy friends into financing her lavish lifestyle. Sorokin, who went by the alias Anna Delvey, was eventually busted for six counts of grand larceny and theft of services in October of last year. The slate of Shondaland productions also includes a documentary on Debbie Allen’s reimagining of The Nutcracker and a series based on investor and activist Ellen Pao’s memoir adaption.

“I wanted the new Shondaland to be a place where we expand the types of stories we tell, where my fellow talented creatives could thrive and make their best work and where we as a team come to the office each day filled with excitement,” Rhimes said in a statement, reports the L.A. Times. “This is Shondaland 2.0.”

According to The L.A. Times, here’s a rundown of each of the projects Rhimes will launch on Netflix:

Untitled Shonda Rhimes Project: Based on the New York Magazine article “How Anna Delvey Tricked New York’s Party People” by Jessica Pressler. Manhattan makes a new friend like no other. But is she the stuff American dreams are made of, or is she New York’s biggest con woman? Is it a con if you enjoy being taken?

 

Untitled Bridgerton Project: Based on Julia Quinn’s bestselling series of novels, this smart feminist take on Regency England romance unveils the glittering, wealthy, sexual, painful, funny and sometimes lonely lives of the women and men in London’s high-society marriage mart as told through the eyes of the powerful Bridgerton family.

 

The Warmth of Other SunsBased on Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson’s award-winning book of the same name, this series tracks the decades-long migration of African Americans fleeing the Jim Crow-era South in search of a better life in the North and the West between 1916 and 1970.

 

Pico & Sepulveda: Set in the 1840s against the surreal and sensual backdrop of the then-Mexican state of California, the series tracks the end of an idyllic era there as American forces threaten brutality and war at the border to claim this breathtaking land for its own.

 

Reset: My Fight for Inclusion and Lasting ChangeNetflix and Shondaland have acquired the rights to Ellen Pao’s groundbreaking memoir detailing her life and career, including the lawsuit she brought against her former employer that sparked intense media scrutiny, shook Silicon Valley to its boys’-club core and presaged the Time’s Up movement.

 

The ResidenceNetflix and Shondaland have acquired the rights to Kate Andersen Brower’s nonfiction book The Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House, which offers a vividly accurate insider’s account of White House residence staffers and the upstairs-downstairs lives they share with the first families at one of the most famous homes in history.

 

Sunshine Scouts: In this darkly comedic half-hour series, an apocalyptic disaster spares a rag-tag group of teenage girls at sleepaway camp who must then summon their moxie and survival skills to weather the fallout and ensure all that remains of humanity abides by the Sunshine Scout Law.

 

Hot Chocolate NutcrackerThis documentary offers a behind-the-scenes look at the Debbie Allen Dance Academy’s award-winning reimagining of the classic ballet The Nutcracker. This staged contemporization—with its inclusive cast of all ages and its blend of dance traditions—has further cemented Allen’s legacy as one of the greatest forces for good in dance.

Breaking News: Surfrider Announces Lawsuit Filing Against the IBWC

San Diego, Calif., July 17, 2018 – The Surfrider Foundation announced that today it will file a citizen suit against the U.S. International Boundary and Water Commission (USIBWC). The lawsuit is based on the USIBWC’s failure to comply with water quality standards, in addition to critical monitoring and reporting requirements in violation of the Clean Water Act.

The Surfrider Foundation, which has been an active stakeholder on the border sewage issue for over a decade, sent the USIBWC a 60-day Notice of Intent to Sue (NOI) on May 15, 2018. The USIBWC did not respond to the NOI or Surfrider’s position that the USIBWC’smismanagement and inaction on trans-boundary contamination has resulted in beach closures, the reported human illnesses of residents and Border Patrol agents, negative implications for local businesses and the contamination of the Pacific Ocean.

“The Surfrider Foundation has followed the established procedure for making public and officialits complaints that USIBWC is in violation of the federal laws governing local water quality standards, including giving them an opportunity to respond and offer ways to mitigate theproblem,” said Daniel Foster, partner with the international law firm representing the Surfrider Foundation, McDermott Will & Emery. “Because of USIBWC’s continued inaction on this issueand the resulting impact on local communities, Surfrider has decided to take further action on

behalf of its members and supporters in Southern California.”

Trans-boundary border sewage flows, unknown chemical pollutants and an increase in plastic debris traveling through the Tijuana River Valley have plagued South San Diego County for

Phone: 858.622.9661 | info@surfriderSD.org | sandiego.surfrider.org9883 Pacific Heights Blvd. Suite D, San Diego, CA 92121 Page 1 of 2

decades. In February 2017, failures of the Mexican sewage infrastructure caused an estimated 143 -240 million gallons of raw sewage to travel through the Tijuana River Valley and onto local beaches. This event affected hundreds of Imperial Beach and Coronado residents who have been forced to live with contamination affecting their homes, neighborhoods, favorite beaches and open spaces. To date, no long-term solutions have been proposed to remedy the sewage problem on the U.S. side of the border. There also haven’t been any attempts to remediate the area that was affected in February 2017.

When Imperial Beach resident and co-founder of the South Bay Clean Water Movement, Shannon Johnson, was asked about the lawsuit, she stated that The Surfrider Foundation has consistently played an active role on the border sewage issue, most recently opposing the construction of a campground in the Tijuana River Valley until the sewage issue is addressed and the area cleaned.

The USIBWC is a federal government agency with the mission of providing solutions regarding sanitation and water quality in the border region. The USIBWC has failed to achieve their mandate and has continually allowed flows of untreated raw sewage, chemical pollutants or plastic pollution to enter the Tijuana River Valley. The community has waited for solutions to this increasingly dangerous problem and the Surfrider Foundation is now suing to compel the USIBWC to act.

Andrea Bocelli announces new album

OHMYGOSSIP — Andrea Bocelli has announced his first album of new material in 14 years.
The Italian singer – who was the Classic BRIT Icon Award this week – wanted to start a new chapter and channel his youth on his forthcoming record, ‘Sì ‘, which is to be released on Decca/Sugar Records on October 26.
He said: “I wanted to go back to my memories of being a young man, playing at a piano bar.
“Obviously since then, I’ve produced lots of albums, sung lots of covers, performed many other things.
“But at a certain point I said to myself: ‘Maybe the time has come to put my effort into finding new songs.’ Like starting all over again, as it were, in my career.”
The intimate collection of tracks that celebrate love, faith and family, were recorded at his home in Italy and were produced by the legendary Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Lou Reed).
The lead track ‘If Only’ has been recorded in three languages, English, Spanish and Italian, and was co-written by Francesco Sartori and the late Lucio Quarantotto – who helped pen one of Bocelli’s biggest hits, ‘Con Te Commenting, over two decades ago.
Explaining the meaning of the album title, which translates to Yes, Bocelli said: “In this historical period we are going through right now, we too often say no.
“But yes is the word you say when you have your first kiss, when you agree with somebody, when want to make someone feel good.
“Sì is the word you say every time things will end well.
“For a thousand and one reasons, sì is the expression of a positive, powerful, human word and feeling and emotion.”
Last night, Bocelli joined Ed Sheeran on stage at London’s Wembley Stadium to perform their duet ‘Perfect’.

Kanye West Announces Release Dates for a New Solo Album and Kid Cudi Collaboration

Kanye West’s Twitter comeback has finally yielded the good news we’ve all been waiting for.

The rapper, whose recent string of tweets are set to become a book (supposedly), teased his musical return on Thursday. West started by simply writing on Twitter, “My album is 7 songs.” He followed up by sharing the date of June 1.

But that’s not it! The 21-time Grammy winner, whose last album The Life of Pablo was released in Feb. 2016, revealed that just one week later he’d be dropping a collaboration album with Kid Cudi under the group name Kids See Ghost.

The collaboration between West and Cudi is notable considering the former label-mates had been going back-and-forth at each other in 2016, before eventually squashing their beef.

Representatives for the two rappers didn’t immediately respond to EW’s request for further comment.

West kept the release date news rolling, revealing that other GOOD Music artists Pusha T (May 25) and Teyana Taylor (June 22) also have forthcoming albums.

3x World Champion Mick Fanning Announces His Retirement From WSL World Tour

WSL PRESS RELEASE

Thursday, March 1, 2018 (Sydney, NSW, Australia) – Late last night, 3x WSL Champion Mick Fanning announced his retirement from the WSL Championship Tour. He will surf the first two events of the 2018 CT season, the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast and the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach, and will retire from competitive surfing on the CT after his final heat in the famous Bells Bowl.
“I feel like I’ve just lost the drive to compete day-in day-out now,” says Mick. “It’s been something I’ve been doing for 17 years, and even before that through QS and Juniors, and I feel that I just can’t give it 100 percent anymore. I’m just not enjoying it as much as I was in the past. I still love surfing, and I’m still super excited by it, but I feel that there’s other paths for me to take at this stage in my life.

“As for choosing to retire at Bells, I’ve always had in mind that my last event on Tour was going to be Bells. That’s basically where I started my career, it was my first ever CT win, and I feel really connected down there.”

Mick first joined the WSL Championship Tour in 2002, after winning his first CT event as a wildcard entry at the 2001 Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach. The win confirmed Fanning as a major threat to the upper echelons of surfing and put his name on the map as a man who was going to make history.

In 2002, his first year on Tour, he won at Jeffreys Bay – a wave that went on to become one of his pet events – as well as one of the most pivotal moments in his career, and life, when he was attacked by a shark during the Final heat of the event in 2015.

In 2004, after two years of being on the Championship Tour, Mick sustained a career-threatening injury while surfing in the Mentawais, tearing his hamstring off the bone and putting him out of the water for months. But rather than give up, Mick took this injury and used it as motivation to come back even stronger. He was back competing amongst the elite by 2005, winning his maiden WSL Title in 2007.

“After so many years on tour, it’s been so fun,” says Mick. “It’s been a rollercoaster for sure, you have your peaks and valleys, but you know, when I look back on my time on tour it’s amazing memories – from building myself up to compete, to heat wins and event wins, celebrating with friends and just seeing places I never thought I’d even get to.”

Three-time WSL Champion Mick Fanning will retire from competitive surfing on the WSL Championship Tour after his final heat at the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach.
Three-time WSL Champion Mick Fanning will retire from competitive surfing on the WSL Championship Tour after his final heat at the Rip Curl Pro Bells Beach.

Over the course of his career, Mick has been through more than most could imagine. He’s seen both personal triumph and personal tragedy under the scrutiny of the public eye, worked through injuries that would have ended careers, and punched a shark on live television, coming out completely physically unscathed.

Throughout 16 years at the elite level, Fanning has won 22 Championship Tour events and three WSL Titles, cementing him as one of the greatest surfers and sportsmen in history.

While Mick is retiring from full-time competitive surfing, he will continue to work with the WSL in an Ambassadorial role where he will support the WSL’s ocean health platform PURE, surfing development and various other projects.

Congratulations Mick, we couldn’t be more proud of you and everything that you’ve achieved – and we can’t wait to see what’s next.

KFC Announces Its First Female Colonel Sanders

KFC has appointed its first female Colonel Sanders.

The fried-chicken chain revealed that Reba McEntire will appear as the Colonel in its latest marketing campaign, Business Insider reports.

As the new the face of KFC’s Smoky Mountain BBQ chicken, the country music icon will sing in commercials and swap between roles as herself and Colonel Sanders.

“It’s something that, in a way, you can kind of poke fun at yourself by dressing up as the colonel,” McEntire told Business Insider. “But, in a way it’s very respectable because he’s been a part of our growing-up years.”

Billy Zane, Darrell Hammond, and Norm Macdonald have all played the role of Colonel Sanders in the past.

“We really look for someone who embodies the values of Kentucky Fried Chicken,” said KFC CMO Andrea Zahumensky. “You think about an entrepreneurial spirit. Our colonel is a showman through and through.”

Despite some skepticism, relaunching the Colonel Sanders campaign in 2015 has brought KFC considerable success. A report of same-store sales growth is expected in early February.

Oasis star Noel Gallagher announces massive new gig in support of the Manchester Memorial Fund – and tickets go on sale tomorrow

NOEL Gallagher will headline an all-star gig to re-open Manchester’s MEN Arena following May’s tragic terror attack which killed 22 people.

The Oasis singer’s High Flying Birds top the bill of the We Are Manchester gig, with rockers The Courteeners, Blossoms and 80s legend Rick Astley also announced.

Noel Gallagher will headline an all-star gig to re-open Manchester’s MEN Arena

Britpop icon Noel didn’t perform at the One Love charity concert organised by Ariana Grande just two weeks after the attack at her concert, but he did generate all royalties from the Oasis smash Don’t Look Back In Anger to the fund.

Deputy leader of Manchester City Council, Sue Murphy told the Manchester Evening News: “No one will ever forget the terrible events of 22 May but Manchester has reacted with love, solidarity and a determination to continue doing the things which make this such a vibrant city.

“We welcome the re-opening of the Arena, a major venue which attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors, as a powerful symbol of this defiant and resilient spirit. It is entirely fitting that the re-opening event should be a memorial fundraiser.

“Plans for the form and location of any permanent commemorations will be determined in liaison with the families of victims and others affected by the attack.”

Bill Nye Announces the 2015 Fun Fun Fun Fest Lineup and Explains the Axis of Fun

Nothing validates a claim quite like hard facts from a scientist, which is why Fun Fun Fun Fest, Austin’s popular cross-genre Indie music festival, hand-picked Bill Nye to announce the 2015 lineup and provide evidence that this fest is, in fact, the most fun in all the land.

Although The Science Guy clearly has the chops to crunch the numbers and appears to be all up in pop culture these days, how exactly did he end up as an ambassador for this fest?

“About 2 years ago, I wanted to find a better way of showing folks that FFF was different than other festivals, because I really believe that it is. It’s not a very credible thought coming from me though,” explains co-founder James Moody. “So we decided to work with a scientist to basically prove, through science, that FFF was special… and scientifically different from everything else out there. Thankfully Bill Nye agreed, likes tacos, and loves Wu-Tang, so here we are. Because science.”

To slam-dunk the case, Nye employs all the tools in his arsenal such as a Wu-Tang Periodic table, a mind-blowing fun equation and “Quantitative Bummer Observation” metrics to explain his conclusion. With the comedy lineup yet to be announced, it wouldn’t surprise me at all to see him show up on the Yellow stage come November but I don’t have the science to prove it yet.

Check out the video for this year’s lineup and the full demonstration.
