What Do You Do When Someone Steals Your Revolution? An Answer From Ukraine.

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

KIEV—The man often called the father of Ukraine’s revolution, Mustafa Nayyem, has seen up close the way the hopes of young, passionate reformers can be thwarted by the forces of an old and corrupt system—a dilemma that faces movements for change across the world right now. And Nadeem is angry. In Ukraine he sees the past slithering back into the present like the many-headed hydra of old, lethal to some and poisoning the atmosphere all around.

Maidan activists, civil groups, and government critics across the country are facing a series of ugly, sometimes murderous attacks, while President Petro Poroshenko, who came to power with the help of civil society, is letting investigations languish, Nayyem told The Daily Beast. “President Poroshenko has done everything to become an enemy of civil society,” said the 37-year-old politician.

Nayyem is in some respects an anomaly. He was born in Kabul. He moved to Kiev as a child in 1990 together with his father, the former deputy education minister of Afghanistan under the defeated Soviet-backed regime.

Must-Reads Of The Week From Brianna Labuskes

Welcome back to the Friday Breeze! Brace yourself, because with the midterms in the rear-view mirror (psshh, the 2018 elections are so five minutes ago), lawmakers, hopefuls and sideline experts are all barreling toward 2020. (I have only just this moment realized the vast opportunity for puns we’ll see when it’s over. Hindsight being … you get it.) First, though, everyone has to make it through two years of likely gridlock with a split Congress.

So what’s on the agenda for the newly empowered Democrats?

“Health care was on the ballot and health care won.” That’s House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s assessment, at least. How it shakes out is trickier.

Some of the Dems’ top priorities are related to bandaging up the health law. Their efforts will likely include forcing a vote on a bill to protect preexisting conditions; shoring up the marketplaces, possibly by helping states pay for large medical claims; and pushing to get the House to intervene in the Texas lawsuit that challenges the law’s constitutionality.

At the same time, many of the party’s 2020 contenders are going to be on the trail going hard for “Medicare-for-all,” aka the litmus test for candidates who want to woo the more progressive wing of voters. The dissonance in the party that has been brewing since MFA gained popularity is at the very least going to require some complicated political maneuvering on all sides.

One Democratic agenda item many people (including President Donald Trump) seem to agree on, though? Reining in drug prices.

The New York Times: Democrats Won a Mandate on Health Care. How Will They Use It?

Politico: California’s New Governor Embodies Democrats’ Dilemma on Single Payer


New numbers out of Arkansas that detail just how many people have been dropped from the state’s Medicaid program since work requirements were enacted have experts increasingly alarmed. An additional 3,815 lost coverage in October for not reporting their hours, pushing the total number of people who have been affected by the state’s new requirements to over 12,000. And about 6,000 more residents are on their second strike and poised to lose coverage next month.

An outcry among health care experts prescribes the rules be suspended until officials figure out why the numbers are so startlingly high.

Modern Healthcare: Arkansas Drops 3,815 More Medicaid Enrollees Over Work Requirement


The Food and Drug Administration is cracking down on certain tobacco products and e-cigarettes that contribute to the emerging teen-vaping epidemic. But the ban on selling flavored e-cigarettes at brick-and-mortar stores (a ban that won praise when an early version of the rules was leaked) was conspicuously tempered. Stores will be allowed to sell the products if they can be kept in an age-restricted area.

The agency did come out swinging hard with a proposed ban on menthol. It could take years to enact, and the tobacco industry has hinted at a court battle, but if the ban does go through, it could have a profound effect on African-American males and young people who smoke menthol cigarettes at higher rates than other groups.

The Washington Post: FDA Unveils Sweeping Anti-Tobacco Effort to Reduce Underage Vaping and Smoking


The National Rifle Association has long been a Goliath among Davids when it comes to election spending. New numbers suggest, though, that the gun control movement may actually become a formidable foe for the political powerhouse.

The New York Times: Gun Control Groups Eclipse N.R.A. in Election Spending

It was not a friendly news week for the NRA in general. One of the organization’s tweet’s (a suggestion that doctors should “stay in their lane” on the gun debate) sparked viral outrage from providers. With the floodgates opened, stories of physicians’ firsthand experience with gun violence blanketed social media. “I see no one from the @nra next to me in the trauma bay as I have cared for victims of gun violence for the past 25 years,” tweeted one doctor (from the New York Times’ coverage). “THAT must be MY lane. COME INTO MY LANE. Tell one mother her child is dead with me, then we can talk.”

NPR: After NRA Mocks Doctors, Physicians Reply: ‘This Is Our Lane’


The wildfires continued to devastate California, with the death toll climbing to at least 63 and the number of missing people soaring to more than 600. Heartbreaking tales about elderly and young evacuees living in the harsh conditions of parking-lot tent cities serve as a reminder of just how long recovery will take after the fires are contained.

Drug prices didn’t always used to be this bad. For a while, America was spending about what other wealthy countries did. Then something happened in the 1990s. To be fair, many factors are in play with our current pricing system, but the record number of new drugs that emerged in that decade likely set the stage for our current morass.

The New York Times: Something Happened to U.S. Drug Costs in the 1990s


Enrollment in Affordable Care Act plans was a bit slower at the start of this year’s sign-up season compared with last year’s. The reason this item appears so low in this newsletter, though, is that those numbers lack context (we, as a nation, were kind of preoccupied with a little thing called the midterms) and experts say it’s too early to call this a trend. Something to keep an eye on.

The Hill: ObamaCare Enrollment Down Compared to Last Year


Sick of medical bills? Yeah, doctors aren’t really fans of having to be debt collectors either. Especially when it comes to a patient. As premium costs shift more and more to employees, providers are no longer able to just deal with impersonal insurers and are instead having to go after the very people they’re trying to help.

Bloomberg: Doctors Are Fed Up With Being Turned Into Debt Collectors

Who in the family doesn’t get health care this year? Americans are having to make such tough decisions in an era where insurance plans can be price-tagged at more than $ 1,000 a month.

As you can tell, this week was popping in terms of health news, so the miscellaneous file is going to be a bit more robust today:

Native American and Alaska Native women have been vanishing in high numbers, but the reporting on the depth and breadth of the problem is woefully lacking.

• The Associated Press: Report Cites Weak Reporting on Missing, Murdered Native Women

Who decides the parole of people who have been found not guilty by reason of insanity? In Oregon, where it’s a board that reviews the state’s cases, the balance between civil rights and safety has been praised. However, an analysis of 220 defendants found that about a quarter of them were charged with attacking others within three years of being released. And the board hasn’t changed its policies.

If it seems as if at least one kid in every classroom these days has a food allergy, that’s because they probably do. Could hypoallergenic food be the answer?

A revealing series of jail conversations between Aaron Hernandez, who died by suicide in April 2017, and other football players details a grim culture of opioid abuse in the NFL.

Ranking Every Adult Animated Netflix Series from Worst to Best

Netflix is home to some of the most raunchy, gut-busting, hard-hitting adult animation out there. That’s old news. But which one of Netflix’s original animated offerings is the most popular amongst animation fans? More importantly, which series should you be bingeing right now?

Luckily, here at FANDOM, we have the largest collection of fan data in the entire world. So, we can definitively tell you which series is truly the best of the best, based on cold hard data. Looking at the total number of wiki page views, here are all of Netflix’s original adult animated series ranked from least to most popular.

#7 – Super Drags

With a whopping 266 wiki page views comes a brand new series fresh from Brazil — Super Drags. This quirky cartoon follows the lives of three gay co-workers who moonlight as superhero drag queens fighting the terrible forces of shade.

Netflix released this fierce series earlier this month to mixed reviews. It’s relatively new on the scene, so that could explain it’s shockingly low ranking. Super Drags deserves better than last place.

This fabulous cartoon is stuffed with sassy queer commentary and we are here for it. If you like Drag Race or Queer Eye, you should definitely try this show on for size. (Drag Race fans might even recognize the familiar voices of Shangela and Trixie Mattel.) Super Drags has some pretty great Powerpuff Girls vibes, but don’t let that fool you. It’s 100% not suitable for children.

#6 – Pacific Heat

Pacific Heat, an Australian animated cop show, garnered a pitiful 1,486 wiki page views. This series centers on an undercover and underqualified police unit, tasked with toppling drug dealers and international terrorists. It’s basically an unfunny version of Archer from down under.

Pacific Heat has been on the beat for a couple of years now, so it’s safe to assume it ranks so low because it’s just not good. There’s no way of sugar-coating it. Pacific Heat is riddled with thin plots, inconsequential characters, and flat humor. No #FOMO here. Skip over this one. Or better yet, watch Archer instead.

#5 – Paradise PD

Brickleberry fans will appreciate this next one. Coming in fifth place, with a modest 25,092 wiki page views, is another animated cop show, Paradise PD. It’s almost as if Netflix ordered this series to make up for the preceding pick because everything Pacific Heat does wrong Paradise PD does oh, so right.

Paradise PD’s stellar voice cast sets this series apart from the competition.  Performances by Scrubs alum Sarah Chalke, Reno 911 alum Cedric Yarbrough, and SpongeBob SquarePants himself, Tom Kenny really stand out. They will make you laugh until you cry, and groan and scream.

This series is also fairly new, so maybe after a couple of seasons, its ranking will reflect its sheer brilliance. This show is equal parts absurd and hilarious, a recipe for great comedy. If you were a fan of Reno 911 or The State or Superjail, then this show is definitely for you.

#4 – F Is For Family

F is for Family secures its spot in the middle of the pack at 215,203 wiki page views. This dark comedy turns the middle-American sitcom genre on its head. We dare you not to laugh at this beautifully crude portrayal of a remarkably dysfunctional family.

Perhaps it would be more popular if it were more unique. F is for Family almost feels like an off-color King of the Hill or Family Guy without its iconic non sequitur moments. That being said, it goes much further than these network shows. We’re talking Newgrounds level vulgarity.

#3 – Disenchantment

We’re not shocked that the newest series to come from animation royalty, Matt Groening, is so far down the totem pole at third place with 747,226 wiki page views. Disenchantment premiered a few months back and received polarizing reviews. Like marmite, you either love it or hate it.

Disenchantment has been described as Futurama set in fantasy land, but it’s so much more than that. However, it’s hard to ignore the striking similarities between the two shows. They both use a lot of the same tropes, gags, and voice actors. We should also note that this series is tame compared to the other selections on this list. If you were a huge fan of The Simpsons and Futurama, then you should probably give this one a watch.

#2 – Big Mouth

Coming in second place with 900,563 wiki page views is Big Mouth. Nick Kroll and John Mulaney, the same comedic duo that brought us Oh Hello Broadway, take us back to the awkward, sweaty, shame-filled years of puberty in this hilariously raunchy show.

We highly recommend watching Big Mouth with subtitles because you will not be able to hear everything over the sound of your unending laughter. Comedy legends Jordan Peele, Maya Rudolph, and Will Arnett, to name a few, lend their voices to a star-studded cast. It’s currently in its sophomore season on Netflix, which earned the series a coveted 100% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. If you haven’t already seen Big Mouth, watch it immediately.

#1 – Bojack Horseman

It’s no surprise that Netflix’s flagship adult animated series comes in first place with 3,556,620 wiki page views. Bojack Horseman is currently in its fifth season, and like fine wine, the show keeps getting better over the years. Bojack Horseman chronicles the life of a washed-up Hollywood celebrity who goes through a personal renaissance while battling addiction and a myriad of mental health issues.  You wouldn’t immediately peg that plot description as comedy, but Bojack is so funny it hurts.

Bojack Horseman is more than one of the best animated series out there, it is one of the best pieces of television, period. The absolutely brilliant creative risks taken by the creative team completely pay off time and time again.  This show is disrupting modern storytelling as we know it.  One could argue that Bojack‘s tenure on Netflix puts the series at the top of this list, over other very deserving shows. However, in this writer’s opinion, Bojack Horseman truly is the best of the best.

Here’s What It Costs to Order Your Thanksgiving Meal From These 8 Stores

Thanksgiving is hands down, unequivocally and undeniably my favorite major holiday of the year. (National IPA Day is still waiting to be recognized as “major” by some.)

Too many holidays require things that are exhausting and stressful. Do I have enough money for all of the gifts? What costume should I wear? Is that leprechaun going to attack me? Not cool, man.

Thanksgiving is free from all of that. On Thanksgiving, you eat a great meal, then you watch some football, take a nap, eat some more food, watch some more football and just chill with family and friends.

That’s a holiday!

You might think, “That’s all well and good if you’re not the one who has to make that massive feast.” Well I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to be the one who does all the cooking this year. You have plenty of options to order Thanksgiving dinner to go from your favorite grocery store or restaurant.

It just depends on what you’re willing to spend.

Here’s Where to Order Thanksgiving Dinner To Go

The average Thanksgiving meal has 12 people ready to dig in, according to the Pew Research Center. That’s a lot of mouths to feed. Sure, some of them — like the young ones and your weird uncle — may be at the kids’ table, but they’ll want food nonetheless.

So, what are your options when you want to skip the gourmet cooking and let someone else do the heavy lifting?

Here are eight companies ready to stuff your family for the big day.

1. Publix

If you live in the South, you probably know and love Publix. It loves you right back with the pre-made Publix Deli large turkey dinner. All you have to do is buy it, take it home and heat it up. It’ll feed 14 to 18 people.

This meal rings in at $ 89.99, which comes out to $ 4.99 to $ 6.43 per person.

It includes:

  • One 16- to 18-pound fully cooked Butterball turkey
  • 5 pounds of dressing
  • 5 pounds of mashed potatoes
  • 64 ounces of Publix gravy
  • 56 ounces of marshmallow delight
  • 32 ounces of Publix cranberry orange relish

And if you’re feeding a smaller family, you can get the Publix Deli turkey dinner for 7 to 10 people for $ 49.99, or about $ 4.99 to $ 7.14 per person.

The meal includes:

  • One 10- to 12-pound fully cooked Butterball turkey
  • 2 1/2 pounds of dressing
  • 2 1/2 pounds of mashed potatoes
  • 32 ounces of Publix gravy
  • 28 ounces of marshmallow delight
  • 16 ounces of Publix cranberry orange relish

Some items require up to 150 minutes to heat. Heating instructions are included for both meals.

2. Shoney’s

Thanksgiving dinner from Shoneys.

Shoney’s has two options for eat-and-serve holiday meals: you can grab a Thanksgiving bundle meal or “pick and choose” your Thanksgiving meal.

The holiday bundle meal rings in at $ 74.99, or $ 7.49 per person, and includes:

  • One 10- to 13-pound whole roasted turkey
  • 2 quarts of green beans
  • 2 quarts of mashed potatoes
  • 24 ounces of gravy
  • 12 dinner rolls

The bundle meal only serves 8 to 10 people. However, if you’re expecting more guests, you do have the option of adding additional sides. Or you can opt to build your own meal and choose your own sides and quantities.

You can order your holiday meal by stopping by or calling your nearest participating Shoney’s. The deadline for ordering is Monday, Nov. 19, and the meal must be picked up by 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 21.

3. Cracker Barrel

Nothing says “homestyle” like Cracker Barrel. With its Heat n’ Serve Holiday Family Meal To-Go, you know you’ll get comfort food — and plenty of it.

This down-home meal feeds up to 10 people for $ 109.99, which comes out to $ 10.99 per person.

The meal includes:

  • Two oven-roasted turkey breasts
  • Cornbread dressing
  • Turkey gravy
  • Cranberry relish
  • Your choice of three country sides
  • Sweet yeast rolls
  • Pumpkin pie and pecan pie

It’s pricy per person, but Cracker Barrel’s Thanksgiving meal gives some good options.

And if you’re hosting a smaller Thanksgiving dinner, you can grab the Homestyle Turkey n’ Dressing Family Meal To-Go, which serves up to six people for $ 67.99, or $ 6.79 per person. The meal includes:

  • Turkey
  • A sampling of sugar cured ham
  • Cornbread dressing
  • Turkey gravy
  • Cranberry relish
  • Your choice of three country sides
  • Choice of bread

Sorry, no pies included with this one, but still a good deal for a smaller crowd.

4. Boston Market

Thanksgiving dinner from Boston Market.

Boston Market prides itself on its homestyle food, so when Thanksgiving rolls around, it’s not about to step back. It gets in on the action with its complete Thanksgiving meal for 12.

The price for up to 12 people is $ 119.99, putting it at $ 10 per person.

The meal includes:

  • One roasted turkey
  • Two orders of vegetable stuffing
  • One order of spinach artichoke dip with crackers
  • 24 ounces of cranberry walnut relish
  • Two orders of mashed potatoes
  • 12 dinner rolls
  • Two orders of gravy
  • One apple pie
  • One pumpkin pie

Cranberry walnut relish? Spinach artichoke dip? The downside may be that your family will know that you couldn’t pull that off yourself! If you can convince them, kudos to you.

But if you really want to be convincing, you could go for the essential turkey meal for $ 99.99, or $ 8.33 per person, instead. This meal also serves up to 12 people and includes:

  • One roasted turkey
  • Two orders of vegetable stuffing
  • Two orders of mashed potatoes
  • Two orders of gravy
  • 12 dinner rolls

No fancy dips or pies included with this one, so your secret is safe with us!

And for smaller families (up to 6 people), you’ll find two meals to choose from on Boston Market’s heat-and-serve Thanksgiving menu. If you need any additional meats, sides or desserts, you can order from the a la carte menu, which comes fully cooked and chilled for pickup the week of Thanksgiving.

To make your Thanksgiving dinner preparations even less stressful, you can have your heat-and-serve meals, a la carte sides and desserts delivered right to your door through Nov. 18. Keep in mind, all orders are shipped frozen. Once fully thawed, your meal will be ready to heat and serve in two to three hours.

5. The Fresh Market

Thanksgiving dinner from Fresh Market

Fresh Market is known as an upscale grocer, but it doesn’t stretch the budget with its deluxe holiday dinner. If you want variety in your meal, you’ll get it with this one.

The cost to feed 12 to 14 people is $ 149.99, which comes out to $ 10.71 to $ 12.50 per person.

The meal kit includes:

  • One 10- to 12-pound fully cooked turkey
  • 3-pound boneless spiral ham
  • 4 pounds of Yukon Gold whipped potatoes
  • 3 pounds of traditional herb stuffing
  • 30 ounces of turkey gravy
  • 2 pounds of corn soufflé
  • 2 pounds of green beans
  • 16 ounces of cranberry relish with walnuts
  • 24 dinner rolls

Wait. Turkey and ham? That’s crazy talk! Plus, the sides look amazing. If you have a Fresh Market nearby, this could be a great option.

If your Thanksgiving dinner will be a little smaller — as in 8 to 10 people — then you can go for the traditional holiday dinner for $ 79.99, or about $ 8 to $ 10 per person.

This meal includes:

  • One 10- to 12-pound fully cooked turkey
  • 3 pounds of Yukon Gold whipped potatoes
  • 3 pounds of traditional herb stuffing
  • 30 ounces of turkey gravy
  • 16 ounces of cranberry relish with walnuts
  • 12 golden dinner rolls

And if your Thanksgiving table is even smaller, you can grab the essential holiday dinner for 3 to 5 people. This heat-and-serve meal rings in at $ 54.99, or about $ 11 to $ 18.33 per person, and includes:

  • 3 1/2-pound fully cooked turkey
  • 2 pounds of Yukon Gold whipped potatoes
  • 2 pounds of traditional herb stuffing
  • 1 pound of green beans
  • 30 ounces of homestyle turkey gravy
  • 8 ounces of cranberry relish with walnuts

The deadline for ordering in stores is Nov. 21, or you can order online by Nov. 18. The Fresh Market will be open Thanksgiving Day from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

6. Bob Evans

Thanksgiving dinner from Bob Evans.

To feed 12 people with Bob Evans’ Turkey Farmhouse Feast, you’d need to order one eight-person meal and one four-person meal. Together, they run $ 129.98, putting your bill at  $ 10.83 per person.

The meal includes:

  • Two slow-roasted turkey breasts
  • Bread-and-celery dressing
  • Homestyle mashed potatoes with gravy
  • Buttered sweet corn
  • Green beans with ham
  • Cranberry relish
  • Dinner rolls
  • Two pumpkin pies
  • One loaf of pumpkin bread

You can also opt for the Premium Farmhouse Feast which feeds 10 people for $ 114.99, or $ 11.50 per person, and includes:

  • Slow-roasted turkey breast
  • Hickory-smoked ham
  • Bread-and-celery dressing
  • Homestyle mashed potatoes with gravy
  • Buttered sweet corn
  • Green beans with ham
  • Cranberry relish
  • Macaroni and cheese
  • Pumpkin bread
  • Dinner rolls
  • Pumpkin pie
  • Double-crust apple pie

The meals are packed cold, but heating instructions are included.

7. Hy-Vee

If you’re lucky enough to live in the Midwest where you can shop at Hy-Vee, you have a great holiday meal option with its family feast turkey dinner. Those outside the Midwest don’t know what they’re missing from this Iowa-based grocery store chain.

The price for up to 12 people is $ 129.99, which comes out to $ 10.83 per person.

The meal includes:

  • One 14- to 16-pound Butterball turkey
  • 48 ounces of turkey gravy
  • Two large sides of mashed potatoes
  • Four large sides of your choice (including dessert)
  • 24 dinner rolls

This is a no-frills, basic Thanksgiving meal, but there’s plenty of it! How much is 48 ounces of gravy, you ask? That’s 6 cups of savory delight, plus over one pound of turkey, per stomach. Perfect for bulking up for a hard, Midwestern winter. The instructions say to plan for 2 1/2 hours to reheat the meal.

8. Whole Foods Market

Tanksgiving meal from Whole Foods.

OK, you’re ready to pull out all the stops. “Go big or go home” is a great motto for this holiday. Whole Foods’ festive feast for 12 isn’t cheap, but it’ll blow the doors off your Thanksgiving — as well as your belt buckles and buttons.

The price for up to 12 people is $ 269.99, which comes out to $ 22.50 per person.

It includes:

  • One 14-pound classic roast turkey
  • One 7-pound spiral-cut ham with 8 oz. of maple-mustard glaze
  • 6 pounds of creamy mashed potatoes
  • 6 pounds of traditional herb stuffing
  • 3 pounds of green beans with crispy garlic and parsley
  • 4 pounds of roasted butternut squash with cranberries and sage
  • 4 pounds of creamed spinach and kale
  • 48 ounces of holiday turkey gravy
  • 32 ounces of cranberry orange sauce
  • One pumpkin pie
  • One apple pie

Yeah, that’s a meal for 12 with 21 pounds of meat. All in all, it’s about 50 pounds of delicious food. That’s 4 pounds per guest. At $ 269.99, it’s a more expensive option, but you’re getting a lot of food for your buck. Plus, there are a few smaller holiday meal options.

Remember, holidays should be fun and relaxing, not tiring and taxing. Sometimes it pays to spend a little money to buy back your time.

So this Thanksgiving, why not order your Thanksgiving dinner to go so you can take a load off and let someone else do the cooking? Your football team needs your help cheering, and it’s hard to do that from the kitchen.

China Bars Dissident From Accepting U.S. Human Rights Award

Vivek Prakash/Getty

A pro-democracy activist from Hong Kong has been barred from traveling to the United States to receive a major human rights award, according to court documents reviewed by The Daily Beast.

Joshua Wong, who led major student protests against Beijing in 2014, was sentenced in January to three months in prison for his role leading the demonstrations.

He is appealing the conviction, and out on bail. As a condition of his bail, Wong surrendered his passport to the court. Documents show the court has denied his request to travel to the United States to receive the Lantos prize, an award from an American foundation honoring former House Foreign Affairs Committee chair Tom Lantos. Prior recipients of the prize include Hillary Clinton, the Dalai Lama, and Elie Wiesel. Wong, whose activist work was the subject of a 2017 Netflix documentary, would have accepted the award in Washington next month had he been able to travel.

Annabel’s To Auction Off Furniture, Art and Objects From Its Old Location

GOING ONCE, GOING TWICE: Before Annabel’s moved two doors down, No. 44 was a London landmark where movers and shakers brushed shoulders under the vaulted ceilings. To celebrate 55 legendary years of the members-only club, Annabel’s is giving the public a chance to score some of its old wares at an auction on Nov. 20, to be held at Christie’s in London.
Annabel’s has partnered with Christie’s Auction House and there will be a total of 250 lots available for sale. These include paintings spanning from Modern British, Old Master, 19th century and Victorian from painters such as Augustus John, Glyn Philpot and Sir Alfred Munnings. These are estimated to sell from 15,000 pounds to 120,000 pounds.
Drawings, political cartoons and vintage posters, which decorated the walls and lined the staircases of the club, are also up for grabs. There are early Swiss ski posters; a rare poster of Sainte-Croix/Les Rasses, a ski resort, by François Jacques; lithographic posters by A.M. Cassandre, and cartoons from the political cartoonist Nicholas Garland.

Sarah Brightman Returns from Space Training for New Album and Tour: ‘I Needed to Earth Myself’

Sarah Brightman is making an astronomical landing with her fifteenth studio album Hymn.

After spending months in Russia training for a trip to outer space that she postponed in 2015, Brightman, 58, opened up to PEOPLE exclusively about the creation of her newest album and the planning stages of her tour.

“I needed to earth myself,” says the soprano singer. “I said I would like to do an album of songs which are full of light, full of hope. Songs that remind me of when I felt safe and familiar with things in my childhood when I sang in my church.”

“If I don’t use and I don’t convey my feelings through it, I feel depleted,” she added. “I don’t function very well and that’s the beauty of having a gift like a voice. You sort of know what to do. You know what direction to take, you know that you want to communicate through it.”

Brightman, who shot to fame after star-turning roles on Broadway musicals Cats and Phantom of the Opera, linked up with producer Frank Peterson for the album-creating process. What came out of two-and-a-half years of planning and recording was the dynamic, choir-filled album, Hymn, out on Nov. 9.

“ is about looking into the good in things because I do believe that good prevails always,” she said, adding that the word “positivity” would describe her album.

“I did experience huge amounts when I was in the space program that actually how precious everything really is on this beautiful planet and how precious that is,” she added.

Now, the “Time to Say Goodbye” vocalist is ready to take Hymn on the road later this fall for a tour that’s “going to be quite beautiful.”

“I have a lot of energy. I tend to before I go on these tours, I become more energetic,” she says. “You create a power for yourself which will protect you because when you go on tour you’re dealing with the hardship of jet lag and moving around continually.”

The “Angel of Music” singer says her set on tour will be divided into two halves. The first will feature a more retrospective aspect to Brightman’s music, which will look like “somebody who is going to the ballet or the opera.” The second will be a bit more modern and feature most of the songs off Hymn.

“I’m wearing all these amazing runway gowns, which I’ve made a little more theatrical by adding things to them. Stones, crystals, all sorts of stuff,” she says. “I’ve got a big choir behind me. Up really high. I’ve got an orchestra on one side, a band on the other side and myself in the middle.”

Brightman’s album is filled with collaborations with artists like French tenor Vincent Niclo on single “Sogni” and Japanese composer Yoshiki on the emotional “Miracle.”

“ is a really interesting guy and we got along very well,” she said. “It was a very interesting collaboration with Japan’s most famous rockstar writing a beautiful contemporary classical piece.”

Along with the collaborations, Brightman’s album jumps from classical and cinematic music to pop rhythms in a cohesive album threaded by its spiritual nature. The album also takes fans back to one of her most famous classics “Time to Say Goodbye” with Andrea Bocelli, which she recreates in a touching English rendition.

“I wrote the lyrics for it but they were very much inspired from the original Italian lyrics when translated,” she said. “It’s quite a grand song, it’s almost like an opera song, but I wanted to do this in a very intimate way.”

Fans can purchase tickets for “Hymn: Sarah Brightman in Concert” through her website.

Inside the Exhibit Where Anna Wintour Watches You From Every Angle

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

Just hearing the name “Anna Wintour” can prompt one to sit up straighter. Notorious for her stony demeanor, the matchless editor-in-chief of American Vogue is not just one of the best-known figures in fashion, but a pop-cultural phenomenon in herself.

Her name has become synonymous with fashion insiderism, better-than-thou aloofness, and overworked assistants touting Starbucks coffee cups.

A free-to-enter exhibition from New York City’s THNK1994 Museum and Chicago artist Laura Collins titled “Anna Wintour Double Crossing Her Legs” aims to challenge that image. Over the course of 12 oil acrylic portraits, Collins studied the pretzel-esque, guarded position Wintour is often photographed contorting in during fashion shows.

Tales from the Wallet: What Was Your Best Money Decision This Year?

best money decision this yearWhat was your best money decision this year — and what was your worst? We’ve nearing the end of the year so I thought it might be a fun discussion, especially since there’s still time to make a great money decision or correct a bad one. Bonus question: what’s your biggest financial goal for 2019?

Psst: here’s our old advice on end of year financial steps if you’re wondering what you can do — as well as how to set financial goals for the year

For my $ .02…

Probably my best money decision has been my focus this year on automated savings and investments — I got a lot buttoned down, and feel good about that. I still use Ally for most short-term savings (the ones I want to keep in cash or CDs), but saw one comment yesterday that concerned me about Ally, so I’d love to hear what other banks you guys are using! Almost all of my long-term savings and investments are with Schwab and Vanguard, and short-short term (basically checking) is through Chase.

My worst money decision is just how loosey-goosey I’ve let my spending become. I tend to stress shop (and stress eat, and stress drink) and I really need to reign it in! It’s also kind of hard to keep track of how much I’ve actually spent because I return a ton of what I buy. I’m pondering setting up a gift card or something with a set amount of cash and using that for all online spending next year — has anyone done that? (Edited to add: I just bought myself a $ 500 gift card at Nordstrom to test it out since Nordstrom probably represents 80% of my shopping — I’ll report back on how that works out.)

My goal for 2019: The biggest money decision I’ll make in 2019 will probably be made this month, as I choose our health insurance for next year, so my goal for 2019 is to choose intelligently! I haaaaate health insurance with a fiery passion. (Here are some of our previous open enrollment tips…)

How about you guys — what was your best money decision of 2018? Worst money decision of 2018? Any early goals for 2019?

Say What Now? Mom Steals $1,600 Worth of Cookies From Her Daughter’s Girl Scout Troop

31-year-old Noel Hines has been accused of of stealing over $ 1,600 worth of Girl Scout cookies from her daughter’s local troop.

The mother allegedly accepted a large cookie order to sell for the troop in March but when funds were due, the Girl Scouts of Western Ohio claim they never received a payment.

via NYDN:

Girl Scout officials and police then tried to contact Hines for six months but were never successful.

“That’s the way the cookie crumbles,” North College Hill police wrote in a Facebook post.

On Tuesday, Hines was arrested for unrelated charges and charged with theft at the North College Hill Mayor’s court, police said.

According to the Girl Scouts of America’s cookie manual, cookies are $ 4 dollars each — making Hines responsible for around 400 boxes of cookies.

The Girl Scouts of Western Ohio said situations regarding theft in their troop are “infrequent” and “unfortunate.”

“When we have evidence that an adult misuses troop funds, we pursue vigorously and, when appropriate, contact law enforcement to recover as much money for the troop as possible. This is not something we take lightly,” the company said in a statement.

Hines was arraigned and is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 28.

So — do we think she ate all $ 1,600 worth of cookies?

This FTC Lawsuit Could Help Protect You from Health Insurance Scammers

A new lawsuit accuses a Florida-based company of misleading tens of thousands of customers nationwide into thinking they were buying health insurance, leaving the customers on their own to pay sizable medical bills.

The suit was filed against six corporations operating out of the same Hollywood, Florida, address and Steven J. Dorfman, who owned or was affiliated with all of them.

“Defendants prey on consumers who are seeking comprehensive health insurance,” the Federal Trade Commission wrote in the suit.

One woman received $ 61,000 in hospital bills she was assured her policy would pick up, but not a dime was covered, the Federal Trade Commission alleges.

Simple Health Plans — which operated under a dozen other names — and several other companies were shut down temporarily by a federal judge in South Florida last week after being sued by the commission.

Dorfman’s attorney, Ryan O’Quinn, told the Miami Herald that Dorfman “vigorously denies” the allegations and “looks forward to having an opportunity to defend himself in the appropriate forum.”

How the Alleged Health Insurance Scam Works

The Federal Trade Commission alleges that Simple Health Plans and its affiliates accepted premiums of as much as $ 500 per month, plus a one-time enrollment fee of up to $ 175, for sham insurance coverage. The companies have taken in more than $ 100 million in the past three years, according to the suit.

The commission is asking a judge for a temporary restraining order that would permit a receiver to seize assets the government believes were bought using corporate funds. They include more than $ 1.1 million in luxury jewelry-store purchases and three cars worth hundreds of thousands of dollars combined.

Simple Health Plans marketed a product it claimed was a PPO (preferred provider organization), deceiving consumers into believing that their plans covered pre-existing conditions as required by the Affordable Care Act, the government alleges. PPOs are health insurance plans that contract with medical professionals to provide care to policyholders at a reduced rate.

In fact, the products sold through Simple Health Plans were not health insurance, but medical discount or wellness program memberships or limited benefit plans — also known as limited benefit indemnity plans — that don’t cover pre-existing conditions or prescription drugs, the Federal Trade Commission says.

A typical plan paid for a maximum of three annual doctor visits at $ 50 each and a maximum of $ 100 a day for a hospital stay — both a fraction of the real cost. A telemarketer told an undercover investigator that he would pay between $ 4 and $ 12 for a diabetes drug that actually would have cost between $ 850 and $ 900, court documents show.

When customers agreed to sign up, they were transferred from a telemarketer to another employee for a “verification process” and pressured to commit even if they didn’t understand contract language that was read or sent to them by email or text, the lawsuit alleges.

“There is a vast difference between what Defendants promise consumers and what consumers actually get,” according to the suit.

Health Benefits One, Health Center Management, Innovative Customer Care, Simple Insurance Leads and Senior Benefits One also are named in the complaint, filed Oct. 28 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida.

How to Avoid Falling for Health Insurance Scams

So, how can you protect yourself?

The Federal Trade Commission has advice for spotting a host of health care scams — including medical discount scams, phony insurance agents, con artists who insist you must divulge personal information to get a new Medicare or other health insurance ID card and fraudsters who offer to help you shop for coverage in the Health Insurance Marketplace created by the Affordable Care Act.

If you suspect a health-insurance scam, call the Federal Trade Commission at 877-382-4357 or email the agency.

Shop directly in the Health Insurance Marketplace for coverage under the Affordable Care Act or see The Penny Hoarder guide on how to enroll.

Gary Lucy splits from wife

OHMYGOSSIP — Gary Lucy has split from his wife.
The ‘Hollyoaks’ actress is said to be devastated after he and wife Natasha – who would have celebrated their fourth wedding anniversary later this month – went their separate ways, amid accusations she had grown tired of his wild partying and he ignored a warning she gave last September to change his behaviour.
But the former couple – who have children India, 13, Elvis, seven, and three-year-old Sadie together – insist the “difficult decision” to separate was made “mutually and amicably”.
They told The Sun newspaper in a statement: It is with great sadness that we announce the end of our marriage.
“This was a very difficult decision, but was reached mutually and amicably. No other parties are involved.
“Our priority is, as always, our children. There are no secrets nor salacious events at the root of our decision, just two best friends realising it’s time to take some space and help each other live the most joyous, fulfilled lives possible. We are still a family and will always be loving, dedicated parents.”
Gary and beauty therapist Natasha had been together since 2004, tying the knot in a star-studded ceremony 10 years later.
The former couple previously admitted their third child was a “surprise” and felt like the “best wedding presenter” ever.
Natasha said shortly before Sadie’s birth: “It was actually a bit of a surprise because although we’ve discussed having more children, it wasn’t exactly planned.
“But it’s like something’s been gifted to us – it’s the best wedding present ever. It’s like it was meant to be.”
But although their daughter wasn’t planned, the couple confessed at the time they’d like one more child to complete their brood.
Natasha added: “Two boys and two girls would be perfect, especially for Elvis to have another boy around when he’s a bit older.”

This Kid From Brooklyn Could Return America to Chess Dominance for the First Time Since Bobby Fischer

Fabiano Caruana did not start playing chess in Brooklyn, New York when he was five years old because his mom thought he’d be a future grandmaster, or that he’d one day play for the World Chess Championship, just like fellow Brooklynite Bobby Fischer did back in the early 1970s. No, Caruana’s mom thought chess would calm him down and keep him focused in school.

“I was having trouble with concentration,” Caruana, 26, tells TIME, “and the idea was that maybe chess would help with that. It was more of a remedy.” Before long, this cure for little-kid hyperactivity took Caruana much further than his Lego buildings and origamis ever could. Within a year, he was winning tournament games against kids who were in junior high school and older. “His first instructor told us he was trying to teach her chess concepts,” says Caruana’s father, Lou. “We knew he was special.”

Starting on Friday in London, Caruana will become the first American since Fischer, who won the world chess title in 1972 and held it until 1975, to challenge for the World Chess Championship. Curuana faces Norway’s Magnus Carlsen, the world chess champ since 2013, in the 12-game match that will be played over three weeks at The College, a 10,000-square-foot venue in the city. Chess rarely attracts much mainstream attention in the United States. But chess pundits expect that a Caruana victory could spark an explosion in chess interest America hasn’t seen since Fischer’s heyday. “You do like your winners, don’t you?” says Mark Crowther, the U.K.-based founder and editor of The Week In Chess.

In March, Caruana earned the right to face Carlsen by beating out seven other top players to win the Candidates Tournament in Berlin. “Fabiano has the power to be better than Carlsen,” says Crowther. “There have been very, very few players you can say that about. I honestly don’t know who’s going to win this match. It’s a total toss-up.”

Caruana forged a circuitous path to representing the U.S. on chess’ grandest stage. His family decided to take Fabiano out of school and move to Spain when he was 12 in order to compete in more high-level tournaments and train with top instructors. Since his mother is Italian, he could compete for Italy’s chess federation. “It was not an easy decision,” says Caruana’s father Lou of taking his son out of school. “The plan was always to do it for a year or two and see how it works out. Is he loses a year of school, so what? He’s smart and can catch up. We could always correct things if it wasn’t going in the right direction.”

Initially, Caruana didn’t support the plan. “I wasn’t really keen on the idea of going to Europe when my parents suggested it,” he says. “I had friends in Brooklyn; I had a life in Brooklyn. But once I started playing chess pretty much full time, it just became a normal part of life. Me and my dad would just go from tournament to tournament in different countries. I missed out on social things in school and everything, but I was able to see the world as a young kid, which is very rare.”

Lou, a former data processing consultant who also earned income from real estate holdings, says he spent as much $ 100,000 on chess travel and instruction for his son in those early years in Europe. The investment paid off: Before his 15th birthday, Caruana became the youngest chess grandmaster, at the time, in the history of both Italy and the United States. Caruana admits early success swelled his head a bit. “You don’t think you need the work, which is always a mistake,” Caruana says. “I would take excessive risks and do crazy things to win a game, and commit suicide.”

Caruana overcame his growing pains, however, and started earning a living playing chess. At the same time, he eyed a return to the United States. In 2014, he turned in a dominant performance at the Sinquefield Cup in St. Louis, beating out Carlsen and other elite players to win the tournament. The Sinquefield Cup is named after Rex Sinquefield, a financier who pioneered the first index stock funds back in the 1970s – and has invested north of $ 50 million over the past decade to building one of the world’s premier chess clubs in St. Louis. With St. Louis now a budding epicenter of global chess, Caruana moved back to America in 2015, and switched federations from Italy to the U.S. Caruana now lives in St. Louis. “For a chess player,” Caruana says, “it’s the best place to be.”

To prepare for his match against Carlsen, Caruana spent some time this summer training at Sinquefield’s country home in Missouri. Besides playing hours of chess with fellow grandmasters, he jogged and shot hoops and played tennis to keep in peak physical shape. “Chess requires a lot of stamina,” says Caruana. “You’re sitting down and you’re playing six, seven hours at a time. You’re burning a lot of calories and you can easily get mentally tired. If your physical form is not good, then you’re likely to crash at some point.” Caruana doesn’t stick to a strict diet, though he does try to avoid excessive sugar, to avoid the high and inevitable come down.

In the weeks leading up to the World Chess Championship, Caruana has trained in Spain, where he’s done yoga and swam in the Mediterranean to keep his head clear. He’s also played games for up to eight hours a day. “The goal is get you thinking about chess 24/7 in preparation for the match,” he says. “It’s playing quick games, slow games, anything that will get you in that mode where you calculate very quickly. Your mind is working in the best possible shape.”

Caruana knows that Americans are blessed with plenty of sports and entertainment options. So why would even casual observers of chess have a stake in his three-week match with Carlsen, never mind those who don’t play the game? “It’s sort of like boxing or MMA,” Caruana says. “It will be a fight that is blow for blow, with each of us trying to get the upper hand, trying to impose our will on the other guy. It’s not a physical sport. But if people are into these one-on-one duels, chess is in a way similar to that.”

Did Marlo Hampton’s Homophobic Slur Doom Her From Getting ‘RHOA’ Peach? [Video]

(Marlo Hampton Instagram)

If you’re a fan of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” you’re no doubt aware of the shows intense popularity. If our math is correct, it just started its 11th season on Sunday evening past.

Over the course of the show’s reign, several ladies have come and gone and even come back (Hello NeNe, Sheree). Interestingly there’s one cast member who’s been consistently hanging around since season 4, but can’t get any love as a full-timer. That would be Marlo Hampton.

So, you might ask yourself, why can’t Marlo get a peach? Look at all the time she’s put in? What more does she have to do? Well, according to a report via theJasmineBrand, the chances of her becoming an official cast member are pretty slim. Accordig to sources, it was an inflammatory comment that Hampton made several seasons ago that have haunted her ever since. The story goes that when Marlo used the word f*gg*t on the show, it supposedly sealed her fate of never getting a permanent spot.

It was back in 2012 when Hampton spouted the word when she and former cast member, Sheree Whitfield, were in each other’s faces during their South Africa trip. In the midst of arguing over why Marlo WASN’T invited by Sheree to a party, hhere’s what came out of Hampton’s mouth …

“And any way, that’s why you don’t have a man, Go and hang with them f*gg*ts.”

Watch:

Needless to say, the man who oversees the show, and is openly gay, BRAVO executive Andy Cohen (pictured directly above), was allegedly livid about it, per sources. Not that it helped, but Marlo did apologize on her website.

“I would like to offer from the bottom of my heart the fullest and most heartfelt apology for my recent use of an anti-gay slur. When I used this word, I was not mindful of the demeaning connotation that this has in the gay community. My speech was irresponsible, thoughtless and said with the intention of conveying anger rather than as a statement on my feelings towards the gay community as a whole…I applaud and admire this community for their triumph over a sometimes harsh, mean spirited society that discriminates and even violently attacks those who are different. These are obstacles that I relate to and that I have been inspired by them to overcome. I celebrate this community and am saddened by any indication otherwise, that my actions may have caused…”

The article also notes that Marlo apologized on that season’s reunion show for using the word, but it didn’t make any difference.

“Not only was Andy upset, but it was damaging with the LGBTQ viewers and execs at the network,” a source reportedly said.

But hey, the bottom line is Marlo Hampton is still very much associated with the show while Andy keeps exacting his revenge.

New Adidas Shoe Line Made From Recycled Ocean Plastic

Adidas has come out with a shoe line that has ocean activists captivated.

Adidas paired up with Parley for the Oceans to create an eco-friendly shoe line made from recycled ocean plastics.

A message from Parley for the Oceans: 

Here are the problems our ocean is currently facing. A massive amount of plastic trash ends up in our oceans every year. The ocean currents have formed five gigantic, slow-moving whirlpools where the plastic collects, nicknamed Vortex. Recent studies indicate that at least 5 trillion pieces weighing over 250,000 tons are now floating in the world’s oceans. The majority of the plastic debris sinks or remains in the Vortexes, however, a significant percentage of it washes onto our coastlines daily.

After sunlight photodegrades the plastic into small pieces, aquatic life and seabirds mistake these fragments for food and ingest it.

While it’s difficult to know exact figures, a 2012 report from WSPA indicates that between 57,000 and 135,000 whales are entangled by plastic marine debris every year in addition to the inestimable – but likely millions – of birds, turtles, fish and other species affected by plastic marine debris.

New studies show that ingested plastic damages the internal organs of fish. This raises the question about the safety of our seafood.

Turtle and Plastic in the Ocean
Underwater image of a turtle with plastic on his head.

 

In this day and age, human consumption and pollution are at an all-time high. The Straw Free Campaign by the National Parks Services confirmed that on average American’s use over 500 million straws per day. We know how detrimental plastics, if not disposed of correctly, can majorly affect our world.

That’s why the internet broke when the Adidas brand recognized the heavily discussed social issue and came up with an efficient way to get involved without compromising their reputable brand.

Everything Adidas does is rooted in sport and technology. The responsive running shoes made entirely from ocean plastic are described as following:

These women’s running shoes are created with yarn made in collaboration with Parley for the Oceans. They have an Adidas Primeknit upper built with yarn spun from Parley Ocean Plastic™. The Boost midsole absorbs the force from your footstrike to release it at push off for a super-charged ride. The women’s-specific design offers adaptive support, comfort, and stability. Wet or dry conditions, a grippy outsole delivers sure-footed traction.

“By 2020, Adidas wants all of their shoes to be made using recycled plastic, which is good for the health of the planet, but it’s good to know that their first foray into sustainability has been a success”. – Business Insider

So if you’re looking for a brand that provides technologically innovative and quality products, as well as a positive environmental impact, consider Adidas!

5 ‘Women and Money’ Lessons From Suze Orman at The Apollo

Suze Orman has sustained an enduring career as a speaker, author and pioneer in financial leadership. Orman appeared at the world-famous Apollo theater to discuss the topic ‘Women and Money,’ which is also the title of her relaunched New York Times bestselling book first published in 2007.

The sold out event was a predecessor for the exclusive premier on Oprah Winfrey’s television network, OWN. Orman has partnered with OWN to launch a financial show on the same topic: woman and money.

Orman’s ‘TED Talk’ style discussion touched on topics that included credit budgeting and retirement. While she answered specific questions from the audience, there were five important lessons to take away from her session:

The Five Women and Money Lessons from Suze Orman at the Apollo 

Power Attracts Money

Orman describes the law of attraction when it relates to money and power. Think about your network and social circles; many times we are attracted to people of power, and most times those who hold power are considered to have money. When you are in a position of power, society places you on a pedestal; opening doors to new opportunities which may lead to further financial gains. Orman says “being powerless repels money.”  If we put this in perspective, think about how many times the person who gives off the presence of not having money, loses out on opportunities. “When you are powerless, no one wants to be around you,” she says.

Money Will Teach You About Yourself

There’s that old saying ‘money is the root of all evil.” Some people believe money is everything while others have learned it is not everything. Orman wants everyone to know “money is not more important than life.” While the world revolves around money, some people will put their life on the line for more cash. Think about your purchases; are you buying things of high value that you can’t afford? Are you saving? The financial decisions you make from purchases to savings says a lot about you in regards to money

Debt Makes You Powerless

When you are in debt, you may feel as though you are sinking, Orman says. Having debt doesn’t allow you “financial freedom.” If we take this principle and break it down, the lack of money you have can make you miserable. Think about how many times you were unhappy when your finances weren’t right. Orman says “When you have debt, you don’t have a financial voice”. This applies to those whose debt payments force them to live paycheck to paycheck. While debt may make you powerless, Orman wants you to know “The debt you have, does not define you”.

Who Will Teach Your Children About Money?

Orman asks, if you are not financially literate, how can you as a parent speak and teach money lessons to your children?

Lastly, Orman Advises: “Your Money Will Never Define You, You Define Your Money”

Stealing Candy from a Baby! Jimmy Kimmel Gets Parents to Pull Halloween Candy Prank on Their Kids

Trick-or-treat! These kids didn’t get something good to eat!

For the eighth year in a row, Jimmy Kimmel has convinced parents to trick their children into thinking they ate all of their Halloween candy.

On the Nov. 1 episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the 50-year-old television host presented his audience with a compilation of parents filming their kids’ reactions to the hilariously cruel prank which he has dubbed “I Told My Kids I Ate All Their Halloween Candy.”

“Now it’s time to find out just how easy it is to take candy from babies,” Kimmel began.

In the first clip, one small boy grimaces like Marvel’s Hulk after being told his mom and dad ate all of his treats.

The boy later tells his mom “You’re going to get sick.” He then says his parents are going to “poop all over the floor.”

In the next video, one boy is in such disbelief about his parents taking his candy that he repeatedly says “but it was in there,” in reference to his trick-or-treat bucket.

He later became too frustrated to speak and just screamed to the top of his lungs.

One little girl took the mature route and told her mom, “I’m so disappointed at you.”

Next up, was another boy who runs into his kitchen to find all three of his buckets completely empty. When his younger sister comes in and asks ‘What happened?’ he just breaks down in tears.

Some kids even resorted to violence after hearing what their parents had done.

One little boy, who was dressed as a firefighter, began hitting his dad on the forehead after his candy went missing.

A different boy also began hitting his father after being asked if he wanted broccoli instead.

Interestingly, not every kid was upset. In fact, some didn’t even mind that their parents took their treats.

“I’m not mad at all. I would never be mad at you because you’re my mom,” one little boy said and his mom responded with “You’re too sweet. It’s gross.”

One little girl said, “I forgive you mommy. I love you.”

The New ‘Buffy’ Can Learn A Lot From the Thirteenth Doctor

The new Buffy the Vampire Slayer show is looming large on the horizon. We don’t know much so far, but as a massive fan, my nerdy heart has been doing cartwheels since confirmed showrunner Monica Owusu-Breen announced that the new show will likely showcase a new Slayer (and a new group of Scoobies).

Honestly, a Buffy reboot makes sense: The story of the Slayer has always been about passing the mantle on to a new generation. But Buffy isn’t the only series getting a fresh start. The first Doctor Who episode featuring Jodie Whittaker’s Thirteenth Doctor premiered on October 7, and it was everything a huge Who fan like me could want. While watching the new Doctor in all her glory, something recently dawned on me: Buffy and the Doctor deal with similar problems, but in very different ways.


Buffy the Vampire Slayer Doctor Who

Both heroes regularly deal with non-human enemies who threaten their friends and home. But while Buffy stab-stabs her foes, the Doctor tries to understand them. If this most recent season of Doctor Who proves anything, it’s that there’s room in the supernatural landscape to explore problem-solving in a more measured manner than Buffy did back in the ’90s.

Slayer vs. Doctor

Buffy and the Doctor are more alike than you might think. Both characters play a specific role that’s been filled by a long line of people before them – the Slayer’s powers are passed from young girl to young girl after death, and the Doctor is the same being who’s reborn with a new body and personality after regeneration (a kind of overall reset button). They both encounter fantastical monsters (demons or aliens) that work in either weekly stand-alone episodes or whole season arcs. But they differ greatly in how they approach those monsters.


Buffy the Vampire Slayer Scoobies

For starters, Buffy has found a family in her friends, the Scoobies (a group that grows and shrinks over the seasons, but always consists of Willow, Xander, and Giles), who ground her combative nature with good old-fashioned research — more often than not, even after Buffy’s friends provide her with historical context and intellectual preparation to face her foe, Buffy still stabs. She’s the arm muscle; she’ll shoot a bazooka at her ex-boyfriend without hesitating. She has a concrete support system to welcome her back once the fight is over. Conversely, the Doctor has had multiple beloved companions over the most recent 11 seasons, none are permanent fixtures in her life. Like the Doctor’s physical form, her companions also change with time; part of her tragedy is that she has no permanent family.


Buffy the Vampire Slayer bazooka

Perhaps because of her solitary nature, the Doctor takes a different approach to conflict: She asks questions, explores her enemies’ motivations, and tries to understand them both physically and emotionally before resorting to bazookas. The Doctor considers most aliens and robots she comes across as capable of change until proven otherwise. The slaying is exciting, no doubt, but as I get older, I wonder if that’s the best approach to take regarding all creatures unknown.

We Need More Adults in the Room

Buffy was chosen, against her will, to be a warrior. The Doctor made the decision to defy expectation and fix what ails the universe one corridor at a time.  It makes sense that the Doctor’s a more naturally diplomatic hero than Buffy. The Slayer is, by nature, a teenager; her young age is built into the show’s DNA. The Doctor is older than most sentient beings can comprehend, has taken multiple forms, and traveled across galaxies.


Doctor Who Thirteen

I was a teenager when Buffy premiered back in 1997, and I liked the exciting stabby-stabby of it all. I was younger and the world was different then. I’m not a teenager anymore — but many of the new Buffy fans will be. When approaching a new young audience, is “slay first, ask questions later” the core message we want to send? As I get older and my worldview begins to align more closely with the Doctor’s, I wonder if we should tread more lightly, more carefully, like the Doctor. Adults use their words, not their Mr. Pointy stakes. And what the world desperately needs right now is more adults in the room.

Buffy Can Learn From Thirteen

One of Buffy’s key character components is her rebellious streak. From the very beginning of the show, she absolutely refused to conform to the Watchers Council’s archaic traditions. The Doctor has always been similarly rebellious. But with Thirteen, the Doctor isn’t just rebelling against what it means to be a Time Lord; she’s rebelling against ingrained audience expectations. Thirteen differs greatly than past Doctors in her physical form (she’s the first woman Doctor), her creators (this is the first season to feature scripts by writers of color), and her new adventures.

A typical episode of Doctor Who, like most sci-fi stories, is an allegory for societal ills — the most obvious being the Doctor’s genocidal foes, the Daleks. But Thirteen’s series is more literal. In Episode 3, the Doctor and her new team meet Rosa Parks, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Fred Gray, then become an integral part of American Civil Rights history. It’s less a metaphor and more a clear political statement. And these days, we’re all hungry for heroes who aren’t afraid to make a statement.


Doctor Who Rosa Parks

The creative staff of Doctor Who trusted that the audience was mature enough for a new kind of Doctor, and it’s paying off (both narratively and in numbers). Buffy is being given a similar opportunity. The Slayer’s fan base has grown up, but can the show mature with us? Maybe the stabby-stabby is just who Buffy is, and that’s fine. But maybe she can change and evolve with us. After all, one of the Slayer powers is natural leadership — and good leaders know that violence is always a last resort.

Seann Walsh seen out for the first time since awkward run in with Neil Jones who banned wife Katya from speaking to him

SEANN Walsh was seen for the first time since his awkward run in with Neil Jones at a red carpet bash on Monday night.

The Strictly star, who was caught snogging Neil’s wife Katya earlier this month, headed out alone near his west London pad today – after The Sun revealed Neil had banned his spouse from speaking to him.

Seann Walsh has been spotted for the first time since his awkward run in with Neil Jones
BackGrid

The comedian, 32, was all smiles as he enjoyed some downtime and grabbed a coffee.

After refuelling, Seann – who was booted out of Strictly on Sunday night – whizzed off on his bike.

The outing came after we revealed tensions were running high between Seann and Strictly pro Neil at the Pride of Britain awards earlier this week.

The dancer, 35, is still hurting from wife Katya’s betrayal after she was pictured kissing Seann during a night out at a London pub earlier this month.

Seann even took his bike for a spin

And taking a stand, Neil blocked his dancer spouse from speaking to love rival Seann at the bash on Monday, telling her: “We’re not on Strictly now, don’t you dare.”

A source said: “Neil and Katya were half way up the carpet when Seann arrived.

“Katya said she was going to say hello but Neil held her back and told her ‘We’re not on Strictly now, don’t you dare’.

“An organiser foresaw a potential bust-up so held Seann back to ensure they were kept apart.

“Neil is still clearly very unhappy with Seann, but Katya clearly doesn’t want to cut ties.”

Seann clearly didn’t let the snub ruin his night as he was later seen enjoying the attention of fans on the red carpet and waitresses inside the venue.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle broke away from tour for a mini moon

These two!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set off on their royal tour this month, with the couple currently on the New Zealand leg of their trip, having already visited Australia, Fiji and the kingdom of Tonga.

But with a jam-packed schedule of official events and appearances, it’s hardly surprising that Harry and Meghan haven’t had much downtime – something they surely need, especially following the news of their future baby, expected in Spring 2019.

It has recently emerged however that the now Duke and Duchess of Sussex did actually escape for a mini moon on their tour and we didn’t even notice.

The royal couple reportedly took some time away during their royal tour of Fiji, escaping for a ‘mini moon’ at the Vatuvara Private Islands Resort on Kaibu Island, before returning to royal duties in Tonga.

Meghan has opened about her pregnancy during the tour, explaining how it has made her feel jet lagged, so here’s hoping she managed to catch up on some sleep!

Luckily, it looks like the mini moon did the trick, with the royal couple seeming relaxed and restored when they arrived in Tonga.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are currently in New Zealand – and people are talking about them more than ever, especially after Harry let his nickname for his future baby slip!

These two!

Here’s hoping they get to have another mini moon soon!

Must-Reads Of The Week From Brianna Labuskes

It’s late October, so you know what that means: It’s time to get your flu shot! (You thought I was going to say elections, didn’t you? Don’t worry, we’ll be getting to that.) Before your roll up your sleeve, check out this story about pharmacies and grocery stores competing for flu shot customers now that the vaccination is covered by the health law. Would money off gas or gift cards for food be more likely to draw you in? (Also, if you do get the flu, good news: There’s now a single-dose medication for it.)

A quick editor’s note before we get into it: “The Friday Breeze” will be on break for the next two weeks as I take a poorly timed (or well-timed! depending on your mentality) vacation. I’ll be back in your inboxes Nov. 16.

Now, on to what shaped up to be a fairly busy week in the health care realm.

President Donald Trump is proposing tying the amount the government pays for certain drugs to their costs in other countries. The president has long railed against the “global freeloading” that he says forces American consumers to subsidize lower drug prices in foreign countries. To be clear, the plan would not apply to medicines people buy at the pharmacy, just ones administered in a doctor’s office.

The New York Times: Trump Proposes to Lower Drug Prices by Basing Them on Other Countries’ Costs

Pharma came out swinging against the plan in an opening salvo of what is likely to be an uphill, exhausting fight over the issue. But, overall, the reaction seems to be muted from both candidates on the trail and the general public, overshadowed perhaps by more easily digestible talking points.

There’s a feeling of foreboding setting in over the pharmaceutical industry as a blue wave gathers force to possibly sweep into the House. Put together a populist president and a party that’s made high drug costs a central, winning issue and what do you get? Pharma’s worst fears realized.

Protections for preexisting conditions have become something of an Achilles’ heel for Republicans on the trail. Some have chosen to duck the topic, while others vow to keep that popular provision without providing details on how. But Trump took it a step further by trying to claim that ensuring coverage for preexisting conditions is a Republican priority and not a Democratic one. Critics were quick to point out that in addition to the GOP’s years-long battle to eradicate “every word” of the health law, there’s currently an administration-backed lawsuit in the courts aiming to overturn the whole thing.

The Washington Post: Trump’s False Claim on Health Care Ignores Years-Long GOP Effort to Repeal Obamacare

On that note, the administration this week announced that it is going to give states more flexibility over coverage requirements, which could allow them to circumvent some of the health law’s protections for patients. States could, for example, use federal funds to subsidize short-term insurance plans.

A report in The New York Times revealed that the Trump administration is considering redefining gender in a way that would strip transgender individuals of certain protections. Backlash from the LGBTQ community was fierce, with some people questioning the timing of the news. “It’s a reminder that pain is a political tool,” said Gabrielle Bychowski in NYT’s coverage. A #WeWillNotBeErased movement was quickly ignited.

America is turning the tide against the opioid epidemic, HHS Secretary Alex Azar said this week, citing a dip in overdoses.

Boy Who Made Meghan Markle a Macaroni Necklace Now Taking Jewelry Orders from Around the World

Meghan Markle is known for being a style icon, even when it comes to the homemade accessories she wears.

While greeting fans in Melbourne during the Royal Tour last week, Meghan was approached by 6-year-old Gavin Hazelwood, who gifted the Duchess a homemade pasta necklace. The royal, 37, instantly put the adorable necklace on, and now Gavin is becoming just as well-known with jewelry order requests coming in from around the world.

“We had a lot of people saying to Gavin, you should make more, you’ll make lots of money from this, everybody will want to buy her necklace,” his mom, Rowan Hazelwood, told Network 10, as reported by CBS News.

The family decided to create a website for Gavin, where fans can purchase the dinosaur-shaped pasta with gold paint necklaces for $ 20. The kindergartener has since received orders from Australia, the U.K. and the U.S.

Gavin intends on donating all of his profits to a stillborn research charity, CBS reported, as his mother previously lost a baby girl.

“She’s a part of our lives still, even for the kids, and they talk to her every day,” she told Network 10.

The Melbourne native, who was adorably dressed as a Qantas pilot, crafted the ribbon and gold-painted pasta necklace earlier that morning after telling his mom he was feeling sick so he could skip school and make the necklace for Meghan.

“I did the pasta with gold paint. Mum helped me thread through the necklace,” he told Fairfax Media.

After receiving the gift, Meghan immediately put it on over her navy Dion Lee dress. The royal mom-to-be, who is expecting her first child with Prince Harry, proudly wore the gift during the rest of the outing until she arrived at a formal reception inside Government House.

Meghan often wears jewelry that has sentimental meaning.

Earlier in the tour, she wore butterfly earrings that once belonged to Princess Diana. And when Prince Harry and Meghan first began dating, she was spotted wearing a gold, personalized necklace with the letters M and H on it.

Former NFL Player Rae Carruth Released From Prison 18-Years After Having His Pregnant Girlfriend Killed [Video]

Former NFL player Rae Carruth has been released from prison after serving 18 years for the slaying of his pregnant girlfriend.

via NYDN:

The former first-round draft pick was released from Sampson Correctional Institution in North Carolina early Monday.

“I’m excited about just being out of here,” he told WSOC by phone a few days before his release. “I’m nervous just about how I’ll be received by the public. I still have to work. I still have to live. I have to exist out there and it just seems like there is so much hate and negativity toward me.”

Carruth had completed his sentence of 18 to 24 years. He did not speak to reporters as he left the prison on a chilly morning.

Now 44, Carruth was found guilty of orchestrating a plot to kill Cherica Adams to avoid paying child support. Adams was shot four times on Nov. 16, 1999 while driving her car in Charlotte, but managed to make a 911 call that pointed the finger at the NFL player.

Adams, eight months pregnant, died less than a month after the shooting. The child she was carrying was delivered, but suffers from permanent brain damage and cerebral palsy.

Carruth has said he wants to have a relationship with son Chancellor, who remains in the custody of his grandmother. Saundra Adams had said she would be there when Carruth got out of prison, but she was not present on Monday.

The former wide receiver was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in 1997. Panthers center Frank Garcia said players were stunned when they heard the news of about his possible involvement in the murder.

“It would be like finding out the guy sitting in the cubicle next to you at work was arrested for murder,” Garcia said. “You just don’t always know people as well as you think you do.”

Some players testified at the trial, and others would spend time in the players’ lounge watching it on Court TV.

“That is one time where you were actually hiding from the cameras,” Garcia said. “You just wanted to stay low and not be involved. All along you’re asking yourself, ‘Did I miss any signs? How is somebody capable of this?’”

Carruth worked as a barber while behind bars, making about $ 1 per hour, according to North Carolina Department of Public Safety spokesman Jerry Higgins. He had signed a $ 3.7 million contract with the Panthers after being drafted.
