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.

Cosby Survivor Lise-Lotte Lublin to Kavanaugh Accuser Christine Blasey Ford: We’ve Got Your Back

Frederick M. Brown/Getty

Lise-Lotte Lublin is one of dozens of women who have accused Bill Cosby of sexual misconduct. This spring, she took the stand at his retrial, which resulted in his conviction, and she intends to speak at his sentencing hearing. The Daily Beast asked her what she would say to Christine Blasey Ford, who has to decide whether to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee about her allegation that Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh attacked her in the 1980s. Here’s what Lublin, a Nevada teacher, said:

No one can tell a sexual assault victim when they should testify. And I should know, because I was sexually assaulted by Bill Cosby and I had to make the decision whether to go public with my story and, later, whether to take the stand in the courtroom and testify against him.

When I think about Christine Blasey Ford having to make this decision, I want to tell her: You have to be the one to decide and you have to be ready. You have to know there will be backlash and you have to be prepared to take that on. But I also want to tell her: Every victim of an attempt, of an assault, of abuse has got your back.

Trend: Chocolate Brown Is Back

It’s taken twelve years for chocolate brown to return as a trendy neutral, and it’s about time. Strangely, it didn’t even feature as a fringe trend. Why the perfectly lovely neutral was banished from fashionable existence makes little sense. Let’s hope those days are over. 

Chocolate brown is the last dark neutral to join the party since navy and ink blue became fashionable constants alongside black and grey. I think shades of dark brown should be a neutral we see every season, because it’s another way of celebrating variety.

Chocolate brown comes in warm and cool variations, so there’s a shade for every complexion. Cool shades are laced with grey and blue, and warm shades with yellow and orange. It’s represented in most wardrobe items this season, as seen in the collection of items.

Chocolate brown is a magical dark neutral that can create an assortment of personas. It is richer than black and warmer than grey. It can be as cool and military as dark blue. It can be as hard-edged as black and as preppy as navy.

Like all neutrals, shades of chocolate brown look splendid with other light and dark neutrals. Gone are the days that wearing black with brown is a faux pas. In fact, I can scarcely believe it was a faux pas since it’s always looked fab to me. It also looks fab with lighter shades of brown and white, and shades of dark blue.

You can wear chocolate brown with most other non-neutrals, depending on your affinity for colour-mixing, and your preferences. It looks amazing with other earth tones, sour brights, pastels, muddy colours and jewel tones. It’s not a neutral that requires much thought on how it will remix with the rest of your wardrobe, especially if you’ve built a complement or capsule with it.

Most of my clients like some shade of chocolate brown and will be happy to see it return to their wardrobes. For some, it’s their “black” and a favourite dark neutral. For some it’s brown in the form of patterns only, especially in leopard and snakeskin. For others it’s good in footwear, belts and bags.

It took a while, but I’m back to wearing chocolate brown. I’ve been building a complement with light blue and shades of white, and enjoying the fresh-for-me combination. I will also wear it with citron, chartreuse, tomato red, turquoise, shocking pink, toffee, cinnamon, blush, navy, ink blue and black. Not sure whether I will wear it with olive and burgundy, but maybe. The colour is VERSATILE.

Over to you. Do you like chocolate brown, and have you missed it? Will you wear it and in which wardrobe items?

The Full-Length Bootcut Is Back

For thirteen years, skinnies, jeggings, boyfriend jeans, wide legs, straight legs, culottes, and just about any silhouette cropped to above the ankle has reigned supreme in the bottoms department. Cropped flares are bootcuts at a deliberately shrunken length, but that’s it. The FULL-LENGTH bootcut just about disappeared after 2005. But it’s back on trend in 2018 as a nod to the ‘90s influence in fashion right now. I greatly appreciate that fashion is making a point of giving back all sorts of by-gone silhouettes their fashionable moment. It’s one way to celebrate diversity of style.

To be clear, bootcuts are fitted on the waist, hips, bottom, thighs and upper knee. They flare out from the lower knee to the hem giving the calves, ankles and feet some volume. They are not to be confused with wide leg pants that are worn wide from the hips and thighs down.

Of course, despite disappearing from the trend radar, bootcuts never went out of style. A handful of my clients continued wearing mid-rise bootcuts with cowboy boots and the like and they looked classic and fabulous. Bootcuts are especially popular with my curvy hourglass and pear-shaped clients, who feel that the wider hems balance out proportions. When they wear heels with extra long bootcut hems so that you can only see the tips of the feet and shoes, the long lean line is accentuated and flattering to their eye.

I do find low-rise bootcuts that were all the rage with premium California denim houses at the beginning of the ’00’s a little dated now. It’s subtle, but the length of the rise makes quite the difference in fashion. Mid-rise bootcuts look current, and high-rise bootcuts even more so.

I loved bootcuts, and wore them for years as the dominant denim silhouette for my style. I wore them with heels and made sure the hems almost swept the surface of the ground. I like full-length bootcuts and bell-bottoms VERY long because it looks luxurious and elegant. I have poison eye for bootcut hems that are shorter unless they’re intentionally cropped above the ankle and worn as cropped pants. Here are bootcuts worn with heels, and most of the hems are sufficiently long for my taste.

For 2018, wearing full-length bootcuts with flats is all the rage, and with sneakers and tucked or semi-tucked tops in particular. Showcasing the hips and waist by tucking the top or wearing a shorter top increases the length of the leg from the hips upward, which offsets the short-legged or dumpy feeling you might get when wearing full-length wide hems with flats. This collection showcases the point.

For the moment, I’m conflicted about full-length bootcuts for my own style. I’m enjoying how fresh they look amidst a sea of skinnies and cropped everything, but they have their disadvantages. I LOVE my two pairs of bell-bottom jeans that are wider at the hems than regular jeans. They swoosh and make me feel fab and Modern Retro. They require a higher heel than I wear daily, which is doable since I wear them for short periods of time. Dry weather is another prerequisite, but dodgy in Seattle where soggy hems are a reality. Wearing bootcuts with flats appeals to me but again, I need dry weather.

Since I spend quite a bit of time in dry Salt Lake City these days, full-length bootcuts might be practical. But the type of dressy, pretty and dainty footwear I like to wear is better suited to a tapered leg. I didn’t want to add back in the Tomboy vibe I wore five years ago, and I didn’t want to look overly casual.

Then I saw these bootcut chino pants worn with white sneakers and thought – super cute. As I said, conflicted!

Sanctuary Chino Pants

I need to try on some bootcuts with the type of flat footwear that suits my feet and lifestyle. I need to be able to wear the bootcuts with flats daily and feel fab doing so if I’m going to add them to my wardrobe. No more full-length flares to be worn with heels for special occasions because I have those already. That requirement is clear in my mind.

Over to you. How do you feel about full-length bootcuts? Did you wear them, and will you wear them again?

The Oscars are rolling back a controversial decision

And the Oscar won’t go to…

oscars popular film category

Another year, another Oscars controversy. While we may have narrowly dodged another Moonlight and La La Land mix up last year, the upcoming ceremony has been a hotly debated one as they announced plans to introduce a Popular Film category recently. However, after the internet exploded over the decision, it seems like they’re having second thoughts about it.

Dawn Hudson, the President of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, announced, ‘There has been a wide range of reactions to the introduce of a new award, and we recognise the need for further discussion with our members.’

oscars popular film category

Rob Latour/REX/Shutterstock

The Academy released a statement on Thursday which revealed that they would delay introducing the award, at least until 2020. It said, ‘The Academy recognised that implementing any new award nine months into the year creates challenges for films that have already been released.’

The new award, formally known as Outstanding Achievement in Popular Film, was revealed last month. While they didn’t elaborate much on the category, it seems to be geared towards blockbuster films like the Marvel and DC superhero flicks, as well as other crowd-pleasing favourites like Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again.

While some welcomed the change, many critics believed that it was a way to keep box office hits out of the running for Best Picture even though they may be deserving of the title.

Marvel’s Black Panther in particular became a huge name in the debate, as Twitter users pointed out that it was deserving of a Best Picture nomination. However if the popular award was introduced, some believed that it could potentially be relegated to just that category.

The Oscars later clarified to The Hollywood Reporter that ‘a single film is eligible for an Oscar in both categories — Outstanding Achievement in Popular Film and the Academy Award for Best Picture’.

The Oscars revealed that the delay was down to the fact that the category ‘merits further study’. The popular film category wasn’t the only shake up introduced recently, as they also announced the televised ceremony would be shaved down to three hours with some awards being presented during the commercial break. Given that the recent 90th Oscars was officially the least watched ceremony ever, it sounds like they’re in need of a shake up in some way to keep people watching.

Personally, we’d totally be down for Black Panther to win Best Picture in 2019. Lupita Nyong’o, Chadwick Boseman and the rest of the cast are royalty and their reign must be respected.

Tiny Harris And T.I.’s Daughter Deyjah Claps Back At Body Shamers After Posting Picture Of Her Weight Loss

No need to call T.I. because Deyjah Harris can handle herself just fine.

This week, the model daughter of Tiny Harris and rapper T.I. took to social media where she shared a few stunning pictures.

The 17-year-old looked a bit different because she lost some weight over the summer.

Like big sister Zonnique Pullins and Tiny, the teenager also showed off a new gorgeous hair color.

While many were happy to compliment Miss Deyjah on her new look a few went after her for shedding a few pounds.

And Deyjah is her father’s daughter, she is smart, eloquent, and has no time for the BS haters were throwing at her, so she fought back with class.

In one the classiest clap-backs of the year, the young lady said this to the naysayer: “LMFAOAOAOAOA sweetie. God bless your little heart and soul. im not sure what’s going on at home that would make you want to put down another girl online, but I’m here if you want to talk! always remember your beautiful baby.”

It seems that Tiny has a gifted writer in the family. Deyjah had fans in tears after she wrote this emotional message to her brother King: “Happy 14th birthday to my kingywingy. Since I haven’t been expressing my love and appreciation for you through my actions lately, I figured I should take the time to show it through writing. You’re an everyday angel and iImean a truly beautiful and well put together one, and I don’t know what id ever do without you. We have soooo many memories together, and you’ll always be my #SONS⛓. You have so many qualities that just shine inside of you!!! You’ll forever meet every description of what I imagine a remarkable person to be. You can literally make my entire day just by saying something that only YOU could say. You’re a gift that makes me so so happy. God bless your little soul✨✨✨✨ I love you baby brooooo (my first little brother btw😉) @the_next_king10”

One fan said: “This melted my heart dej. No way he is 14?!?! Wow. Happy birthday. You have also grown into a beautiful young lady!!”

Another commenter stated: “Intelligent just like you’re father. This was very Well said, very heartwarming. Aww no,w that made me.HBD King! You have a way with words lol I’m not emotional at all but, whenever you write something on here, I’m, almost in tears lol.”

This person revealed: “The words you write to your family and friends are priceless and know your words will stay with them forever. Aww, that was soooo sweet and heartfelt I ALMOST cried lol big sisters ROC. I love the way you express your feelings your words are always heartfelt and sincere. Happy Birthday once again King.”

This bright young lady will make sure that the world knows and respect her name, just wait and see.

Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law celebrate back to Hogwarts day in London

OHMYGOSSIP — Eddie Redmayne and Jude Law surprised ‘Harry Potter’ fans at Kings Cross Station in London on Saturday (01.09.18), as part of the “Back to Hogwarts” celebrations.
Hundreds of fans of the magical franchise flock to the London train station on September 1 each year to mark the day young witches and wizards make their way to the mythical Platform nine and three quarters to board the iconic Hogwarts Express steam train that takes them off to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
And on Saturday, as fans gathered at the platform, Eddie and Jude – who star in the upcoming ‘Harry Potter’ spin off movie ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindlewald’ – made a surprise appearance to join in the festivities.
Fans – many of whom dress up in their Hogwarts robes for the event – lined up for hours at the popular photo point to take a snap of themselves pushing a luggage trolley “through” the platform wall that whisks wizards and witches away to Platform nine and three quarters.
Whilst there are usually staff members on hand to help set up the photos, fans were shocked when they reached the front of the line to find that the staff this year were none other than Eddie and Jude themselves.
Eddie, who stars as Newt Scamander, and Jude, who plays a young Albus Dumbledore, then led the countdown to the 11am departure of the fictional steam train.
Whilst Jude, 45, is starring in the franchise for the first time in the upcoming movie, 36-year-old Eddie is reprising his role as Newt after first starring in 2016’s first instalment of the spin-off series, ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’.
‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindlewald’ hits cinema screens on November 16 this year, and also stars Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindlewald.

Report: Kendall Jenner ‘Rips Caitlyn’ For ‘Turning Back’ on Family

ANGELA WEISS

There have long been reports and rumors of tension between Caitlyn Jenner and her kids with Kris Kardashian, Kylie and Kendall.

Earlier this year, Caitlyn herself said, without referring specifically to her Kardashian-blood kids, that she doesn’t see much of her family, saying, “I have a lot of children, but sometimes just because of circumstances, maintaining a close relationship with your kids is very tough. They all have lives. They’ve all moved on.”

And although Caitlyn was invited to Kylie Jenner’s 21st birthday bash last month—an invite that caught some Kardashian analysts by surprise and was interpreted as a mellowing of the relationship—now comes a report that Kendall Jenner was reportedly seen “ripping Caitlyn a new one” during a tense argument at Nobu Malibu.

Crazy Rich Asians Brought the Labor Day Box Office Back to Life

(Bloomberg) — “Crazy Rich Asians” led the North American box office for a third straight weekend, making the U.S. Labor Day weekend one of the strongest in years, while the latest Tom Cruise blockbuster made a major splash when it opened in China.

The Warner Bros. romantic comedy collected $ 22.2 million in the U.S and Canada, ComScore Inc. estimated in an email Sunday. Warner Bros.’s “The Meg” ranked second domestically, taking in $ 10.5 million.

Paramount’s “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” placed third with $ 7 million, and led the global box office with $ 96.1 million, ComScore said. “Operation Finale,” about the hunt for notorious Nazi Adolf Eichmann, came in fourth place for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer with $ 6 million. “Kin,” a new science-fiction film from Lions Gate Entertainment Corp., failed to land in the top 10.

Fallout, the six installment of the Mission Impossible franchise, was propelled to the top of the worldwide box office with a “massive $ 77.3 million debut in China,” ComScore said.

The combination of new movies and the strength of “Crazy Rich Asians” was expected to bolster sales for the final weekend of the summer movie season. Through the extended weekend, the top 10 movies were expected to bring in almost $ 100 million, Box Office Pro estimated. That would be about 60 percent more than a year earlier, when the biggest films collected $ 61.7 million.

“Crazy Rich Asians” was forecast to collect more than $ 23 million from Friday to Sunday, according to the estimate of Box Office Mojo. Its global haul reached $ 32.6 million as of Sunday, ComScore said. An adaptation of a best-selling novel about Singapore’s rich and elite, the movie is in its third week atop the North American box office and is being celebrated for opening the door to more diversity in Hollywood.

‘Searching’

In another film with an Asian actor in the lead role, the well-reviewed “Searching” from Sony Pictures expanded to more theaters this weekend and jumped to fifth place with sales of $ 5.7 million. The film features John Cho as a father who uses social media to find his daughter. It was forecast by Box Office Mojo to take in $ 5 million over the three days. RottenTomatoes.com said 90 percent of critics recommended the film.

“Operation Finale,” which opened earlier in the week, missed Box Office Mojo’s forecast of $ 7.2 million. The film stars Ben Kingsley as Eichmann, the mastermind of the Holocaust, and follows the Israeli effort to capture him and put him on trial. More than half of critics recommended the movie, which cost about $ 24 million to make.

“Kin” opened with weekend sales of $ 3 million, failing to make the top 10. Only 33 percent of critics recommended the picture, in which a young boy uses a weapon of unknown origin to help his brother battle vengeful criminals. Box Office Pro was projecting sales of $ 3.5 million through the Monday holiday.

After Insulting Police Entrapment Scheme, Rapper Vic Mensa Gives Back

The Chicago police department recently came under fire for setting up a sting operation that many said was a form of entrapment. The operation was a joint effort between the police and Northern Southern Railroad and involved parking unlocked, unmanned trucks filled with sneakers as bait to catch thieves.

Only three people ended up swiping shoes. A viral video of the so-called ‘bait trucks’ sparked outrage and the railroad company has since apologized.



In an effort to diffuse the situation, native Chicago rapper and Roc Nation signee Vic Mensa announced that alongside his SaveMoneySaveLife foundation, 5,000 sneakers will be given away to kids in need at the same location where the “bait truck” incident initially took place. Mensa has asked for the support of shoe companies, professional athletes, and other high profile public figures to make a contribution to this initiative.

The rapper also tweeted an Amazon.com link where anyone can donate by purchasing sneakers directly that will go toward the drive.

Laundi Keeseagle, who serves as the executive director of Vic Mensa’s foundation was quoted as saying, “We wanted to do something in response, but have a positive response.”

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, an official date of the giveaway event has not yet been determined but will be announced once the sneaker goal has been reached.

Vic Mensa is taking a grassroots approach to alleviate an issue that directly affected his community in the Southside of Chicago.  Increasingly, entertainers are using their influence for social impact. Other notable Chicago rappers including Twista, Chance the Rapper, and Common have also given back to the city.

Chance the Rapper has been particularly active in giving back. Last December, he hosted a holiday party at The Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago to raise money for homeless children.

His organization, SocialWorks, raised $ 2.2 million as of 2017—funds set aside for the Chicago Public School system.

This report comes from Radar Online which also said that if his behavior does not improve, she will leave him for good.

‘It will soon be the six-month mark after his cheating turned their lives upside down,” the source told Radar,’ via Hollywood Life.

‘She figures it’s more than enough of a stretch for Tristan to show her he’s capable of winning her trust back.’

On the other hand, it seems that Khloe was impressed with one thing regarding her baby daddy – the way he is acting as a father to True.

‘True is definitely a daddy’s girl,’ another insider told the online magazine Hollywood Life.

‘And Khloe’s heart melts when she sees him holding their beautiful daughter. Even if Khloe is mad at Tristan for some reason, she can’t stay that way for long when he’s with True, because he’s just such an amazing dad. Tristan is so gentle with True, and it’s clear that he worships her—she has him wrapped around her little finger!’ the same source reported.

This is great news, and regarding Tristan and Khloe’s relationship, it looks like we will have to wait until October to see what happens with these two.

How to Get Your Style Groove Back

how to get your style groove backSo here’s something we haven’t talked about in a thousand years: how to reassess your personal style and, if necessary, get your style groove back. Some fun things we’ve discussed in the past include where to start when you need style inspiration, the weekend you vs. the weekday you, how to cultivate style (vs. following trends), “next step” brands (as in, I’ve graduated from Express — what’s next?) and, many moons ago, how to revamp your entire wardrobe.

I’m going through a bit of this right now myself. This is how I’m trying to get out of my style rut, but I’d love to hear your tips as well!

1) Assess what’s working. For example, you may have a great uniform right now that works — like black tops and gray pants — and you’re just looking to mix it up a little without throwing out your entire wardrobe.

2) Assess where you want to go — and what’s stopping you now. For example, if you’re not a fan of ironing, the starched-blouse-Carolina Herrera/Arianna Huffington look is not for you. But you could add an academic look by wearing collared dickeys beneath sweaters, or replace the idea of a collar with a prominent necklace, worn with an opaque white tee.

3) Retrain your brain, if necessary. For example, maybe you don’t like the look of flats with skirts and dresses, but you ALSO don’t like to wear heels. This doesn’t necessarily mean that skirts and dresses are out for you, just that you have to educate yourself on how people are wearing them. On a related note, this may also be necessary if you’re thinking to yourself, “I wore _[trend]_ when it came around the first time and I won’t be caught DEAD in it again!” If we’re talking about Hammer pants, OK. But bootcuts — or leggings — or duster coats — or plaid — there are a lot of things that feel “trendy” but are just cyclical and come back in style again and again. The people who make the clothes are savvy enough to make the styles different by just a bit — the cuts are just sliiiightly different and the ways they can be worn tend to be different.

4) Get Pinning. I know, if you were in it to win it in 2013 or so with Pinterest, it may seem to be waning in its current iteration, but I really do think that this is where Pinterest excels. (Have you stopped by our Pinterest boards lately for some inspiration?) I’m pinning:

  • outfits I like
  • body twins where I like THEIR outfit (As I’ve noted before, my hourglass shape has turned more apple over the years, and it’s so difficult to find celebrity or blogger inspiration where they don’t look winched into Spanx.)
  • outfits that challenge me — sometimes I look at an outfit and think NOPE, not for me, next — and other times it’s a bit more puzzling whether it is or isn’t for me. I find that if I pin the look after four or five visits, I can put my finger more precisely on what I do or don’t like (the shoes, the lines, the pattern) and how I might want to try the look for myself.

5) Start trying things on! Shopping, thrifting, clothes swaps… they’re all good. If you have similar-sized friends, try to do a closet declutter event at the same time. Services like Stitch Fix can also be great because they can force you to try new things that are a little bit outside your comfort zone. (I would also say that our four-week work outfit challenge might be great here — lots of workwear inspiration and ideas!)

Ladies, what are your thoughts on style ruts? Have you been in one recently? What did you do to get your style groove back? How often do you reassess your personal style?

Open and shut case: why the package holiday is back

Cost, convenience and the Love-Island effect mean ready-made holidays are back in fashion, with giant operators Thomas Cook and Tui opening swish new hotels

The last time I went on a package holiday France had just won the World Cup. It was 1998, the peak of the package’s popularity, and my mates and I celebrated the end of our exams with a week in Magaluf. We had a brilliant time but it wasn’t an experience I’ve ever felt the need to repeat – until now.

Twenty years on, France have won the World Cup once again and packages seem tempting again. When I confess this, friends look at me askance and make jokes about piña coladas. One is moved to reminisce about her own youthful package holiday; she is still traumatised by the coach excursions.

The best-selling wireless headphones on Amazon are somehow back down to $28

Best Selling Headphones On Amazon

Beats makes some truly fantastic wireless over-ear headphones, but do you really want to spend between $ 200 and $ 300 when you can get headphones that are just as good or even better for so much less? Most people answer no, and that’s why the Mpow 059 Bluetooth Over-Ear Headphones have been the best-selling headphones on Amazon’s entire site for more than a year now. They offer fantastic sound quality, long battery life, and a great design for about $ 36. But wait, did we say $ 36? If you use the coupon code EMOQ8C77 at checkout you can get them right now for just $ 27.99. That’s the lowest price ever for these awesome Bluetooth headphones and you’d have to be crazy to pass them up.

Mpow 059 Bluetooth Headphones Over Ear, Hi-Fi Stereo Wireless Headset, Foldable, Soft Memory-Pr…: $ 27.99 (use code EMOQ8C77)

Here’s what you need to know from the product page:

  • IMPRESSIVE SOUND QUALITY IS THE ULTIMATE GOAL & PLEASE NOTE: 1. This item is passive noise isolating, NOT active noise cancellation(ANC), it can’t cancel the noise completely but it won’t drain the battery and damage the sound. As an additional factor of sound quality, it is better than ANC. 2. The closed-back design provides immersive Hi-Fi sound with CSR chip and 40mm driver together. If you care more about Noise Cancellation than Sound Quality, you may consider other alternatives.
  • BUILT TO STAY COMFORTABLE: The Memory-protein ear cushion simulate human skin texture, ensuring lasting comfort. The stainless steel slider and softly padded headband allows you to find the perfect fit without constraint and provide excellent durability.
  • NEVER POWER OFF, BOTH WIRELESS & WIRED: 1. The wireless mode: Battery update to 20-hr music time/ talking time in a single charge, instead of 13-15 hrs from Oct 1, 2017; 2.

  • FOLDABLE DESIGN WITH A PORTABLE BAG & GENTLE REMINDER : The foldable Headband is not only designed for saving your desk space but for carrying in the provided bag. Gentle Reminder: Depending on your head/ear size/shape, it may be a little tight(feels like“on ear”) for someone to wear which is designed to avoid sound leakage. In case of that and to get both audio and wearing comfort, please take off the headphone every 1-2 hrs to get your ears relax and protect them from muggy environment in use.

Feminists Aren’t Done Fighting Back Against Rape in the World’s Most Dangerous Country for Women

The Thomson Reuters Foundation this year declared that India was the most dangerous country for women in the world—and though government agents in the region are pushing back on the decision, women’s rights activists are pushing on in their fight to end an epidemic of sexual assault that continues to draw international headlines.

Attendees at the first regional training of the “Voices against Violence” in Pune, India. Urjasi Rudra for UN Women / Creative Commons)

The Indian National Commission for Women Chairperson, Rekha Sharma, rejected the survey results, claiming the sample size was too small and cannot be the representative of the whole country. But feminists in India said sensitizing lawmakers to the issue, breaking the silence and building collective consciousness are the keys to combat violence and discrimination against women—and they’re not backing down for the sake of national pride.

ElsaMarie D’Silva, one of the 548 people surveyed for the Reuters’ study, is the founder and CEO of Red Dot Foundation (Safecity), an organization that crowdmaps sexual harassment in public spaces. “Whilst we can debate the ranking, the sample size and the methodology,” said told Ms., “we have to wonder if these cases of sexual violence are acceptable or not and if it puts the rest of us at risk.” D’Silva recommended ensuring justice ecosystem where women suffering from sexual harassment and assault don’t face judgement, but instead find supportive and efficient legal processes at their disposal. She also emphasized encouraging bystander intervention and teaching sex-ed in schools and colleges in order to create social norms for non-violent communication, understanding consent and respecting boundaries.

Indian poet, fiction writer and womanist Kavya Sharma wasn’t shocked by the survey results. To her, they showcase the strength of a backlash to growing activism around ending violence in the country. “With it being the most unsafe country in this regard, it’s honestly no shocker,” she told Ms. “While after the heart-wrenching Nirbhaya case people were on streets fighting for their most basic rights, things only got worse. It’s so traumatizing to realize that most of the sexual harassment and rape cases are not even reported. On the ground level, I feel the police needs to be sensitized on the issue, many people shun these incidents away with the fear of being ‘judged’ by the society. Women, instead of fighting, are taught to just ignore the red signals, it’s a shame but sadly it’s the reality too.”

Award-winning author and feminist activist, Meghna Pant, has a simpler call to action: “Stop the silence so that you can stop the violence,” she told Ms. 

“It is difficult to start a constructive and proactive dialogue on sexual violence because our country makes it nearly impossible for women to speak out,” she observed. “A woman who does speak out is subject to harassment, criticism and, sometimes even, disbelief. She leaves herself open to public scrutiny: she is called names, she is judged for the clothes she wears, the job she does and the boyfriend she has. Her family is also drawn into this fracas. No wonder then that there’s always been this cloak of silence surrounding sexual molestation.”

Regardless of ranking, it’s clear that a culture shift is in order for the men and women of India—and feminists on the ground will not stop speaking out until they are heard and believed.

All the Times Fast Food Brands Clapped Back at Their Haters on Twitter

Oooh, burn!

In recent years, Twitter has become a major marketing tool for all brands, but it’s also become a great way for fast food joints to clap back at their haters (and their competition).

While Wendy’s quickly gained a reputation for having the sassiest Twitter on the block, especially because of their ongoing feud with McDonald’s over fresh versus frozen beef, other brands took notice and began dishing out their own snarky tweets in response to customer questions, celebrity news, or other brands’ promotions.

Read on for some of the best zingers from the fast food giants.

Taco Bell

While Taco Bell doesn’t typically engage in social media fights, the brand has had a few standout moments from their own Twitter account, including their correction of a grammar error in one of White Castle’s tweets to Chrissy Teigen. The taco joint also fired back at Old Spice when the deodorant company accused the fast food chain of false advertising.

DiGiorno

Frozen pizza company DiGiorno also joined in on the fun, inciting a pizza war with Papa John’s. The frozen pizza chain mocked Papa John’s slogan “Better Ingredients. Better Pizza.” when they tweeted a declining graph meant to represent Papa John’s sales above a tweet that read, “Better Pizza. Better Sales.” The company also briefly changed their bio to the new slogan to spite Papa John’s.

Burger King

Aside from their epic promposal to Wendy’s on a marquee sign outside of one of their restaurants, Burger King has also thrown shade at the company on social media. First, the chain used social media to promote their spicy chicken nuggets, a menu item that Wendy’s had previously discontinued, leaving the Twitter-verse in an outrage. The brand found people’s old tweets asking where Wendy’s spicy nuggets went and used them as advertising for their own spicy nugget addition to their menu.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Then, Burger King promoted a 5 for $ 4 deal just days after Wendy’s announced their 4 for $ 4 deal. Even though they didn’t mention the square-burger chain in their tweet directly, Twitter users were quick to notice the shade in their tweet which read, “Because 5 is better than 4.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

However, Wendy’s never goes down without a fight, so when a Twitter user, who has since switched their account to private, asked what Wendy’s had in response to the deal, they responded with two simple words: “edible food.”

Wendy’s

Of course, Wendy’s has the longest history of roasting people on Twitter, including their iconic tweet suggesting that asking to be directed to the nearest McDonald’s is essentially the same as asking to be directed to a garbage can.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The company also recently called out pro-golfer Tiger Woods when he flubbed his first hole at the 2018 U.S. Open, scoring an unimpressive triple bogey. “Tiger, next time you’re going to get a triple…” the brand tweeted beneath a photo of their triple cheeseburger.

Best USB-C battery pack for laptops: Omni 20 USB-C review

I remember introducing the rest of my family to rechargeable battery packs about seven years ago, just as everyone was migrating from Blackberries onto a mixture of Android and Palm Pre (!) devices. At the time, a 2,000mAh device that fit in a backpack and gave you 60 percent more battery life was the most magical thing I could remember.

Fast-forward to 2018, and battery packs can do a whole lot more. Thanks to improvements in battery technology, a pack the size of a few decks of playing cards can charge your phone for a week, and USB-C technology means that much bigger and more powerful devices can take a charge.

‘The Family Hustle’ Is Not Coming Back Anytime Soon

 

It was just yesterday that it was reported that  T.I. and Tiny‘s Family Hustle TV show had been revived. Well, not so fast. T.I. says, Nope, it ain’t so.

T.I. took to Instagram to address the issue.

“To whom it may concern… if it ain’t come from me or @majorgirl it ain’t real. Family Hustle On Ice until further notice. Thx,” he wrote.

No word on whether or not the show will ever return. T.I. and Tiny seemed to be part of the reality TV curse which breaks up more couples than divorce lawyers do.

The estranged couple’s current marital status is unclear, although no divorce has yet been announced. Tiny just finished up a tour with Xscape, though the quartet still has some dates scheduled throughout the summer. Tiny also has a perfume, Major Girl that just launched.

Watch Ben Affleck (yes, Ben Affleck) predict Spotify and Netflix streaming way back in 2003

TwitterFacebook

Turns out everyone’s favorite ahistorical Bean Town boy and resident Sad Man is more than just a pretty face. 

That’s right, Ben Affleck, the star of such films as Gigli and Pearl Harbor, is so much more as this random (apparently) 2003 interview showing him basically predicting Spotify and Netflix streaming proves. 

In the middle of a fast-paced rant about file-sharing, he notes that in the future everyone will have access to music and video on demand for an annual subscription fee. 

“I think an annual subscription-based system is one that works,” he tells the interviewer. “It will be movies on demand but it will be a tiered structure,” he adds.   Read more…

Lee Daniels Vows To Pay Damon Dash Back His Money

Days after a video surfaced of Damon Dash running up on Lee Daniels at a Diana Ross concert demanding he get his money back, Daniels has vowed publicly to repay the millions he owes him.

The Empire creator sat down with TMZ on Friday to admit his wrongdoings and promise to pay the former Roc-A-Fella mogul his coins for investing in a few of his earlier films.

“When nobody in Hollywood was giving me money, after my Academy award, unprecedented with Halle Berry, nobody was giving me money,” he says in the brief clip.

“Damon’s crazy ass was crazy enough to give me money for The Woodsman and for Shadowboxer. The investment for Shadowboxer didn’t pay off.”

He added: “I am in the position now to get it to him, so I’m going to get it to him because I think that’s the right thing to do.”

“It sadly took that wake-up call during Diana’s “Reach Out And Touch Somebody’s Hand” for me to realize that and for me to sit with myself.”

Take a look:

Apparently, Dame saw the sit-down and wrote on Instagram that he accepts the Oscar-nominated director’s apology.

“We’re good bro,” he wrote in the caption. “Appreciate the honesty…time to move forward let’s forget the bubble gum shit and get the money.”

As we previously reported, Daniels reportedly promised Dash stake as the EP on the Richard Pryor biopic in addition to five percent of Daniels’ back end profits. The biopic never happened, leading to Dash suing Daniels for his contribution. Dame also sued Daniels in 2004 after the mogul says he loaned the director $ 2 million for the film The Woodsman, none of which Daniels has paid back.

Feminists Fought Back Against Family Separation in Los Angeles

Activists gathered Thursday to march around the Metropolitan Detention Center in downtown Los Angeles in response to the Trump administration’s policy of separation migrant parents and children detained at the border. Across the country, activists gathered at similar demonstrations in the last week to demand that the practice be reversed—and the families reunited. In Los Angeles, women formed the front line.

The Los Angeles event was organized by Children over Politics, United Healthcare Workers and The Coalition for Human Immigrant Rights (CHIRLA)—three women-led and women-centered organizations fighting for the rights of immigrant youth, women and families. Staff at CHIRLA are working on a daily basis within a number of communities to reverse the one-sided narrative the Trump administration has leveled against immigrants; Children over Politics provides a safe place where youth can access community, resources and help in making a difference around the issues that matter most to them; and United Healthcare Workers West is a local union housed under the larger Service Employees International Union (SEIU) fighting for immigrants afraid to access care due to the Trump administration’s hostile policies as well as the immigrants who can’t access it within its makeshift centers.

“Trauma lasts for generations,” Hortencia Armendariz, Community Division Director at United Healthcare Workers West, declared to Ms. at the march, noting that the U.S. already has a mental health crisis, and the lasting impacts of the Trump administration’s policies will undoubtedly compound it for another generation. Armendariz is also concerned about survivors of domestic violence that are seeking asylum in the U.S.—many of whom will now be effectively sentenced to death by another recent decision by the Trump administration closing its doors to asylum seekers facing such crimes across borders. 

“SEIU-UHW denounces the decision of Attorney General Jeff Sessions to restrict asylum to victims fleeing domestic violence in their home countries,” she told Ms. “Women and children seek protection under our country’s asylum laws based on the violence and abuse that they suffer at the hands of spouses and family members because their governments are unable or unwilling to control these persecutors. The ruling places the lives of thousands at risk of deportation, death or serious physical harm.”

“We are human at the end of the day, and we should be treated as such,” Belle Lopez, a Children Over Politics facilitator, told Ms. reporters at the protest. “The lawmakers have the power in their hands to make real changes.” Lopez intends to continue organizing young people and encouraging them to be more involved; she also wants to register more young adults to vote, organize more actions like this week’s march and help young people learn more about politics. 

Although the Trump administration, due to political pressure, reversed the so-called zero tolerance policy separating families along the border, it has not yet revealed a plan to reunite those already in detention. Thousands of traumatized children are being held in vacant Walmarts and tent cities, some sleeping in bunk beds within large metal cages and spending up to 22 hours a day indoors, pleading with officials to see their parents. Experts predict some will never see them again.

Activists have been demonstrating outside of federal and local government buildings and immigration detention centers for the last week, and nationwide protests of the Trump administration’s immigration policies are being organized as part of a day of action on June 30.

The zipline that will take you an hour back in time

ADVERTISEMENT


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

How does it work?

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

Making the trip

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

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

First of its kind

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

Terms and conditions

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

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

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