And everyone’s getting FOMO.

With soon-to-be parents Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their royal tour in Australia and Pippa Middleton welcoming a baby just this week, the attention has been off Kate Middleton and Prince William.

In fact, we’ve hardly seen the Duchess of Cambridge this year, with Kate taking a maternity leave after the birth of Prince Louis, returning to royal duties just this month.

But given the attention on other members of the royal family, Kate and William managed to throw a secret party in Kensington Palace this week, with the public and press only finding out after the occasion.

The event in question was work-related – a surprise reception for the finalists of this year’s BBC Radio One’s Teen Hero Awards at their Kensington Palace home.

The couple reportedly welcomed teenage finalists to the reception, talking to them about their work as Teen Heroes of 2018.

‘It was such an honour and privilege to meet the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge at Kensington Palace,’ one of the winners, Siena Castellon, explained to HELLO!. ‘They were both genuinely interested in my website, www.QLMentoring.com, which I created to support and mentor autistic students and students with learning disabilities.’

She continued: ’The Duchess was especially interested in addressing autism stereotypes and was saddened to hear about the severity of the disability-related bullying I have experienced. She congratulated me for being a Diana Award holder and for currently serving on the National Youth Board, a role that has given me a national platform through which to share my disability-based bullying experience. They were both incredibly warm, supportive and encouraging. Meeting them was an awesome experience! They have inspired me continue to make a positive difference in my community.’

The BBC Radio One Teen Awards Ceremony will take place on Sunday, hosted by Greg James.

Snag a UPS Seasonal Job at a Nationwide On-Site Hiring Event on Oct. 19

UPS is calling it Brown Friday.

That’s the term the company is using to describe its hiring bonanza prior to the Black Friday and Cyber Monday holiday shopping sprees.

The shipping company says it will hire 40,000 full- and part-time workers at 170 job fairs nationwide on Oct. 19.

We previously reported that UPS was hiring 100,000 seasonal workers this year, so it looks like the brown jacket brigade is attempting to recruit a large share of its seasonal workforce in one day.

The hiring events are split into east and west regions, and applicants have the chance to receive employment offers on the spot.

The seasonal positions are primarily package handlers and drivers. Over the last three years, 35% of seasonal package handlers were hired on for permanent positions, the company notes.

Can’t make it to the hiring event? You can apply online at UPSjobs.com.

The company touts that permanent jobs — including part-time — come with health care and retirement benefits, as well as tuition assistance in some locations.

Our initial focus in Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald shifts away from the heroic Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) toward the darker side of the magical realm created by J.K. Rowling. This time, the dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) commands attention as the adventure continues in Europe.

As Rowling explains in a new video, Grindelwald must answer for the crimes he has committed. Meanwhile, Credence Barebone (Ezra Miller), who previously wreaked much havoc, is now…

Dollar Tree and Family Dollar Plan to Hire 25K at Oct. 17 Hiring Event

The chain of discount stores known for saving everyone a few dollars is looking to put dollars in people’s pockets.

Dollar Tree, Inc. is hosting its third annual nationwide hiring event on Oct. 17 with plans of hiring 25,000 new associates.

Interviews will be held at every Dollar Tree and Family Dollar store in the U.S. from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time. The company currently has over 15,000 locations and can be found in all 48 contiguous states.

Both full- and part-time roles are available, including positions such as store manager, assistant store manager, cashier and stocking associate. And, of course, the company is jumping on the seasonal hiring train, so temporary roles for the holidays are open.

The job listings don’t specify pay rates, but Glassdoor offers some insight: Store managers earn an average of $ 44,806 a year, assistant managers earn an average of $ 41,205 a year, and cashiers and stockers earn an average of $ 8.00 per hour.

The company’s benefits program includes a 401(k) plan, medical plans, paid time off, a wellness program, life insurance, disability insurance and an employment assistance program aimed at maintaining a positive work-life balance.

A Dollar Tree press release says there is potential for new employees to be promoted into a higher role later on, adding that in 2017 nearly 40,000 associates moved up the company’s  ladder.

This is a one-day only hiring event, but don’t get too stressed if you can’t make it in person. Interested applicants can also apply online at www.dollartree.com/careers or www.familydollar.com/careers.

If you do plan on attending the event, here are some tips on how to stand out from the competition. And while you’re there, maybe pick up some cheap, Halloween goodies so you don’t find yourself in a decimated candy aisle at 8 p.m. on Oct. 31.

A Subtle Twist Of Line: Richard Berner Live Screen Printing Event

Meet Richard Berner, the host of this month’s Live Edition Printing evening with The Private Press.

Richard Berner

What links Audrey Hepburn, Amy Winehouse, the Houses of Parliament and a tentacle-wielding creature from the deep? Unless you have any other (we’d like to say unlikely) suggestions, the answer to that would be Brighton-based artist Richard Berner.

A regular feature on the walls at artrepublic Brighton, Berner’s work blends fine ink work and cultural iconography with a dusting of dark humour. While some of his images are straight-up homages to famous figures, such as David Bowie, Charlie Chaplin and, erm, Storm Troopers, each finished with watercolour hues, drips and splodges, others have the hallmarks of those classic political caricatures found in famous international newspapers and journals for centuries. You know, the ones that take familiar forms and figures but toy with them just enough to make a clever commentary or subtle joke.

Bowie by Richard Berner

Whether it’s a beautiful moth that turns out to be made up of hundreds of tiny skeletons and ghoulish creatures, or a King Kong-like figure ascending Big Ben, drawn in a way that references Dali’s dripping clocks, Berner’s illustrative images definitely reward close inspection. The great news is, you can get up really close to the artist’s next limited edition, as he’s producing it at this month’s Live Edition Printing evening at the gallery, run in collaboration with The Private Press.

Join us at artrepublic Brighton on 26 October, from 6-8pm, as Berner unveils, hand-finishes and signs an edition of just 50 prints, which you can buy there and then. As usual, the after-work creative session will also feature drinks at the gallery and a chance to meet the artist and have a chat about his work.

 

To find out more about the event, and to save yourself a space at (or near) the printing press, check out our eventbrite page.
