Our 30th birthday panel of trailblazers set out the future for women

Here’s everything you need to know…

Robert Chadwick

This month marks Marie Claire‘s 30th birthday, a milestone that we are celebrating with a special commemorative October issue featuring none other than Jodie Whittaker, the first ever woman to take on the role of Doctor Who.

‘It’s no coincidence that our 30th birthday October issue cover star is Jodie Whittaker, the first female Dr Who in the show’s 50 year history,’ our editor Trish Halpin announced as she opened our Marie Claire 30th birthday breakfast on the future of women this morning at The Clock Library and Gym, in Marylebone. ‘I think that it demonstrates just how much can change, and an awful lot has changed in the 30 years since Marie Claire was launched.’

Robert Chadwick

‘But we all know that there is so much more that needs to be done to really get to a position of gender equality and to ensure that the voices of women of every creed, colour and age are really truly being heard,’ she continued, going on to introduce a powerhouse female panel to speak on the future for women in work, technology, diversity and sustainability.

Female guests networked over fresh fruit, granola and plenty of caffeine  – hearing the expert insights on the future of women from the panel, and taking away invaluable advice.

These are the most inspirational takeaways from the Marie Claire 30th birthday breakfast, with thanks Carol Bagnald from Black on Silver for making it all possible:

The future of work and women

(Jo Swinson CBE and MP for East Dunbartonshire)

‘Thinking about what’s happened in the workplace in the last 30 years, we have made progress for the position of women,’ explained Jo Swinson MP. ‘We’ve seen a lot of legislative progress – in the 1970s the ladies at the Ford plant campaigned for equal pay which ultimately became legislation in the equal pay act, yet we still don’t have that as a reality over 40 years later. We won new protections for women in terms of maternity leave, and yet still today we have 54,000 women a year in this country losing their jobs because of pregnancy and maternity discrimination. It’s illegal, it’s been illegal for years and yet it still happens.’

‘Yes, there are more women at the top,’ she continued. ‘The number of women in parliament has gone from 3% to 30% so there is progress, but when I was 21 I didn’t think we’d still be having this discussion 20 years later, and it doesn’t feel like progress has been as quick as it should have been.’

What can we do?

Well according to Jo, there are three things that everybody can do to make change.

‘The first is to just sit at the table. Sheryl Sandberg once said that and it really resonated with me. How often have we gone to a meeting and women have sat around at the sidelines or not felt like they could contribute? So sit at the table – you are there on your own merit, and make sure you say something even if you’re scared inside. The second is to amplify the voices of other women. In Obama’s first term, the women in his cabinet decided to praise and amplify each other’s points in order to get them the credit they deserved – something we can all follow. And finally, break the mould – think about how you can challenge stereotypes and have an impact on what young boys and girls will see.’

The future of technology and women

(Anne-Marie Imafidon – co-founder of Stemettes)

‘If we had more women involved in the creation of technology, it would be more altruistic,’ Anne-Marie explained, going on to use the new FitBit period tracker as an example.

‘They put out this feature and it limited a period to ten days which is an interesting restriction to put on something like period tracking,’ she continued. ‘It just goes to show that there should have been more women in the room. We need to make sure that we are there.’

What can we do?

‘We all know the three Rs – reading, writing and arithmetic, but there are now four,’ Anne-Marie explained to the room. ‘We need to re-digital. Digital literacy is something we all need to make sure we’re clued up on. Rather than being just a consumer, we should look to be creators, get ourselves in that room and take control.’

The future of diversity and women

(Ella Hammad – Authentically Ella and Civil/ Tunnel engineer)

‘When I started in construction there were only a few women, and fewer women of colour, and even fewer women that were muslim,’ Ella explained during the panel discussion. ‘There were a lot of things about diversity that really resonated with me. I am treated differently – and not just because I’m a woman, also because I wear a headscarf.’

What can we do?

‘We need to encourage younger girls to get into engineering, and something that I definitely want to encourage is for those young girls to find the role models that I didn’t have when I was growing up,’ Ella explained. ‘My mother was my role model but she wasn’t an engineer, and when I got into engineering, if I had a role model that looked like me, I would have had a clearer idea which path I should take and I’d feel more comfortable and a lot more confident. It is difficult to talk about an issue that you are facing to someone who doesn’t look like you and doesn’t understand it.’

She continued: ‘But we shouldn’t just be trying to raise the number of women in engineering and construction. We need to shatter the misconception that our intellectual abilities are defined by the way we look and the fashion we choose to wear.’

The future of sustainability and women

(Amy Powney – Creative Director of Mother of Pearl)

‘There is a huge campaign going on at the moment with increasing numbers of women wearing t-shirts saying “I’m a feminist”, but I don’t think anyone is actually thinking about the woman that manufactured that t-shirt,’ Amy explained. ‘She probably had no maternity rights and didn’t get paid enough money, and we’re just walking around wearing them flippantly and throwing those t-shirts in the bin at the end of the trend, not thinking about the women earlier in the journey.’

What can we do?

‘It’s not just about us,’ Amy Powney explained. ‘We obviously have issues that we need to deal with here but there are huge problems out there that are bigger than our problems that need addressing. We need to talk about the women in the supply chain and think about them too.’

Amy continued: ‘We are a fast-fashion nation who are consuming clothes very rapidly and throwing them into the bin. We have got circulatory issues, we have got synthetic fibre issues – we are basically killing the world through fashion, and as the women that we are, we need to make choices that can ensure that we look great and save the planet at the same time.’

Robert Chadwick

Discussing these topics – writing about them, tweeting about them and addressing them in forums like this – is what is really going to push the agenda and make change,’ Trish explained to the room, encouraging us all to keep the conversation going.

Feeling inspired? Come along to our next event and experience the first hand empowerment yourself.

With special thanks again to The Clock, Carol Bagnald and Black & Silver.

Ubisoft CEO Pictures the Future of Games

Yves Guillemot has big ideas about the future of gaming. Beyond just better graphics and more power for new systems, Guillemot sees a future where the concept of home consoles could change altogether, and games could embrace new technology to grow in major ways.

Speaking to IGN at Gamescom, Guillemot described a vision he’s laid out many times in the past: that the future of home gaming will arrive via streaming.

“Technology is actually going in that direction. The machines will be more powerful and the system to transfer data will be more efficient, so at one point, we will have a better experience streaming something than having to buy a machine and change the machine regularly,” Guillemot told IGN.

How Black women in media and beyond are shaping the future

How Black women in media and beyond are shaping the future


How Black women in media and beyond are shaping the future

Since the start of this country, Black people have transformed their lived experiences into beautiful art that challenges societal and cultural perceptions of what it means to be Black in America. They’ve found light and joy in oppressive spaces through art forms like song and film. Their influential presence is felt throughout the world, ushering cultural change in an industry that has historically silenced their voices for speaking truth to power — as was the case with such legends as Dorothy Dandridge and Eartha Kitt.

During the 2018 BET Awards in June, Strong Black Lead — an initiative spearheaded by Black employees at Netflix — released an ad called “A Great Day in Hollywood,” invoking the spirit of “A Great Day in Harlem” (a photograph depicting popular jazz musicians of the 1950s). The 47 Black entertainers featured in the Netflix ad inspire future generations of Black creatives to trust their visions, despite the industry standards reinforcing society’s message of unworthiness: “We’re not a genre because there’s no one way to be black. We’re writing while black. Nuanced and complex; resilient and strong.”

Black women who appear in the ad, including Lena Waithe and Ava DuVernay, are examples of our culture’s creative legacy. Waithe and DuVernay utilize their art and platforms to educate viewers about political and personal issues, like the lived experiences of queer individuals and those suffering from mass incarceration, respectively.

When people of the African Diaspora are represented in media, it can transform perceptions of Blackness and challenge viewers to initiate social change.

Increased representation of Black experiences, as seen in the record-breaking films Black Panther and Girls Trip, showcased to the world that Black stories and voices matter. The intergenerational composition of the Netflix ad speaks to this larger cultural movement where Black creatives shape media narratives of their own lives and communities, continuing the historical innovations of artists before them.

This is also an accessible Black media movement where audiences can engage in conversations around Black popular culture through social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram. Young Black creators like Issa Rae, Quinta Brunson, and Franchesca Ramsey have transformed their social media presences into successful careers. Through skillful and humorous storytelling, this movement uplifts and supports work that exposes the harsh realities of being Black in this society.

In a way, this type of media brings to life the Afrofuturist dreams of author Octavia Butler — birthing a future where Black girls and women are given ownership of their lives and stories.

This movement spans beyond entertainment, too. Yes, we have Lena Waithe paving the way for Black women screenwriters, Beyoncé Knowles taking space at Coachella to celebrate Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and Janelle Monáe defining what it means to be a pansexual “free-ass-motherfucker.” But we also have Tarana Burke, who is advocating for Black women sexual assault survivors and helping get their voices heard by policymakers. We have elected representatives like Congresswoman Maxine Waters, as well as community organizers like Black Lives Matter co-founder Alicia Garza and BYP100 National Director Charlene Carruthers. When it comes to social justice, countless Black women are leading the charges in their own fields.

Angela Davis, the mother of Black feminist academic thought, said, “Black women have had to develop a larger vision of our society than perhaps any other group. They have had to understand white men, white women, and Black men. And they have had to understand themselves. When Black women win victories, it is a boost for virtually every segment of society.”

And thanks to the visions of today’s artists and activists, Black girls are growing up in an era when they can see Black women reclaim power structures that have long impacted their lives. Following the footsteps of elders who broke barriers before them, they are ensuring the future leadership of young Black girls across the world.

I believe there is an unspoken language and sisterhood among Black women. It’s evident in the magic of our voices and our desire to uplift each other, and it’s time for the world to not only hear the voices that have always spoken up — but to affirm and magnify them.

So to Ava, Lena, Beyoncé, Solange, and every Black woman changing the world through art and activism, this is a love letter to you. I — and so many others — see you, hear you, thank you, and celebrate you.

Slideshow: Everything You Missed at the American Black Film Festival 2018 Including Future, Kofi, and Coogler

If you were seeking to break into the film industry or you love black movies and television shows, the only place to be on this planet was the 22nd Annual Black Film Festival. Held in Miami, the event was sold out—and for good reason.

ABFF Ventures CEO Jeff Friday created the film festival more than two decades ago as the premier professional development and networking platform for African American filmmakers, artists, and industry influencers. This year, filmmakers, producers, and actors sought to elevate themselves within the industry by gaining essential training through a series of master classes taught by seasoned pros, which included “Becoming A Showrunner;” “Film Financing;” and “Nailing Your Audition.” Others gained the inside track through “Business of Entertainment” seminars sessions that demystified film distribution deals; evaluated television writers’ rooms; and shared how Netflix Original Films seeks to diversify talent in front of and behind the camera, among other topics.

Attendees also gained access to premier entertainment and interviews. For instance, HBO, which has been an ABFF partner for 21 years, sponsored the side-splitting Comedy Wings Competition as well as diverse, powerful slate of indies featured as part of its short film competition. Moreover, filmmakers and film lovers alike packed Miami’s New World Center to view an exclusive interview with ABFF alum and filmmaker of the moment: Black Panther Director Ryan Coogler.

Prepare to be inspired…

Future Shapers Live 2018

This weekend we hosted our annual Marie Claire Future Shapers Live event, in partnership with Neutrogena, taking place this year at Sofitel St James, London.

The Saturday saw 300 career-focused women, of all ages and industries, gathering in the London hotel for inspiration, advice and skills to advance their careers, change direction or set out on their own.

Be fearless:

‘If we eliminated fear, we would fly. The universe only wants good things for us – you just have to be fearless.’ Alesha Dixon 

‘Someone once described me as courageous and it was the biggest compliment I’ve ever been given. You don’t have to be born with courage. If you want it, you can have it.’ Victoria Pendleton

‘The biggest prison we live in is the fear of what other people think – if we change that mindset, we can be whatever we want to be.’ Aimee Bateman

‘Women are socialised to be perfect. We should be socialised to be brave.’ Stephanie Phair

Be open to mistakes:

‘We need to redefine the word “mistake” – mistakes are important and necessary, and that’s true in all walks of life – it’s just that you’ll only find that out in hindsight.’ Pavan Ahluwalia

‘I nearly went bankrupt. I remember crying one night because I couldn’t afford to pay £16k in wages to my staff the next day. I had to go and tell them that I couldn’t pay them, and it was humiliating. But it was a huge learning curve and it changed my entire business, because I had to make sure it would never happen again.’ Rachel Flanagan

Be authentic:

‘You can’t just copy someone else as you’ll only ever go as far as that person. You have to be you to reach your own potential.’ Sebina Hussain

‘I’ve been told my whole life I need to act more like a boy, which is a bit boring, isn’t it? I’m going to be that feminine person, I’m going to do it my way and it’s going to work.’ Victoria Pendleton

‘Be emotional. Be exactly who you are, and if people don’t like it, they’re not your tribe. What three words do you want people to use to describe you? That’s your brand.’ Aimee Bateman

Future Shapers Live 2018

Be open to help:

‘Don’t be a busy fool. I know what I’m worth in my business and every time I put something in my diary, I think “Is that a job a director should be doing?”‘ Rachel Flanagan

‘Be inquisitive. If you’re stuck on a hurdle, ask and people will show you the way. And don’t spend your time doing something someone else can do. You need to be the person who’s improving the top line and bottom line therefore – stick to what you’re good at.’ Anna Gibson

‘Don’t dim your light, shine. It’s ok to be different, we can work together to make collective change. Even superheroes can’t do it on their own.’ Aimee Bateman

Future Shapers Live 2018

Credit: Joe Burford

Be persistent:

‘When you’re a young girl and you have dreams of your future, the path seems clear, but then reality kicks in. I wanted to be a doctor, and I was told that people like me couldn’t do it. I didn’t listen. When one door closes, you find a window with a tiny crack open and you find every bit of strength inside you to shatter that crack and jump through.’ Dr Rosena Allin-Khan MP

‘Let’s not think change happens to us. Let’s take the reigns and be the change makers. That will ensure we are not negatively affected by change – we will be driving the change.’ Brita Fernandez Schmidt

‘You have to communicate why you do what you do. There’s always going to be someone who dresses better than you or uses longer words, but the way you can win is giving people something to connect to.’ Aimee Bateman

Future Shapers Live 2018

Credit: Joe Burford

 

Be generous:

‘It’s not about pulling the ladder up behind you, it’s about trying to let down lots of ladders to give other women a leg up too.’ Dr Rosena Allin-Khan MP

‘It is such a privilege to be able to help others – we must use that privilege.’ Brita Fernandez Schmidt

‘People will fall in love with you if you give them something to fall in love with.’ Aimee Bateman

Bosch is helping build the future of personal transportation

eBike Reivew 2018

Companies like Bosch that supply the component parts of electric bicycles are busier than ever these days. As such, they’re also armed with data that suggests the e-bike market — contrary to how it might look to skeptics that see it as a niche for eco-conscious hipsters — is primed for breakout growth.

Bosch eBike Systems sales and marketing manager Jonathan Weinert, for example, tells BGR the company is having trouble building factory capacity fast enough to keep up with demand. Here’s another indicator — Bosch today is working with some 30 different partners that use the Bosch e-bike system in a variety of bike models, up from less than 10 brands when Bosch entered the market in North America just a few years ago.

Steven Spielberg’s Adaptation of Stephen King’s ‘The Talisman’ Will Happen “In the Very Near Future”

Steven Spielberg's Adaptation of Stephen King's 'The Talisman' Will Happen

One of the best parts of Steven Spielberg's new movie, Ready Player One, is a sequence set inside of Stanley Kubrick's movie of The Shining. As acknowledged on screen, Stephen King is not a fan of that adaptation of his book. But hopefully King isn't upset with the tribute to Kubrick over himself there, because Spielberg is still interested in someday making a movie out of King and Peter Straub's fantasy novel The Talisman.

IKEA Talks Augmented Reality, Apps & Future Plans

Earlier this month, IKEA teamed up Dutch designer Piet Hein Ek for a delivery of “deliberately imperfect goods” known as the “Industriell” collection. Now, setting sights on the future of furnishings, the Scandinavian brand appears to be experimenting with augmented reality, unique apps and other forward-thinking ideas. As Co.Design‘s Mark Wilson writes:

“People visited Ikea stores 936 million times last year, but they visited Ikea online 2.3 billion times. Meanwhile, the company debuted new ways to shop using AR and VR, partnered with the visual AI startup GrokStyle, and acquired the gig economy company TaskRabbit. In short, Ikea is acting more like a tech company than a furniture maker. And within the next few years, the way you think about shopping at Ikea will probably change entirely, as the company is aggressively pursuing a new, digital identity through its evolving wave of experimental apps.”

With industry analysts forecasting a dynamic shift in the way IKEA does business, the company is aiming use digital innovation and cutting edge technology to make its goods accessible to anybody.

“The business model of Ikea having a blue box in a cornfield, and you jump in the car with your family and have an ice cream [at the store], is not the only thing we should offer our customer,” Michael Valdsgaard, IKEA’s head of “digital transformation,” explains to Co.Design. “For the majority of people in the world, Ikea isn’t accessible. Apps can make Ikea accessible.”

While IKEA is currently testing the waters with a range of apps, its creative masterminds are looking to lay the foundations for future business models.

“In the future you’re going to search either verbally or visually,” Valsgaard tells Wilson. “How we’ve searched until now doesn’t make sense for the coming decade … In VR, people love it, but don’t use it. Then you go into AR–people love it, but half can’t use it because they’re not used to it yet.”

Valsgaard also note that AR is still in its nascent stages. “I thought it would have gone a little bit faster with [Apple’s] ARkit and [Google’s] ARcore, because all of a sudden, hundreds of millions can use it. But it’s probably going to take a few years before it becomes something for everyday use.”

“We just want to explore,” Valsgaard concludes. “I think you will find, in the next three to five years, we’re going to have a range of ways to interact with Ikea, from big blue buildings on the freeway to a completely digital interface, to anything in between.”

Mark Fisher also sums up IKEA’s future goals well:

In this sense, Ikea’s approach is a reflection of the tech industry–and its confusion over emerging mediums like AR–right now. No one quite knows what is coming next. Pinterest is betting on visual search. Facebook has gone all-in with VR. Google, Apple, and Microsoft are bullish on AR. And then, of course, we have a slew of voice assistants lurking in an increasing number of devices, mostly thanks to Amazon. Of course, while all of this UI experimentation is taking place, the future of physical retail is murkier than ever. In this sense, Ikea’s strategy is to spread its chips across the table with a range of AR, VR, and visual search experiments.

In related news, designer Adam Pickard just rolled out his plans for AssembleAR, a concept app that uses AR to guide consumers through the IKEA instruction process.

‘I Expect to Remain CEO for the Foreseeable Future’ Says Elon Musk After a Colossal Compensation Deal

Here’s what Tesla Inc. shareholders just bought for $ 2.6 billion: a stronger guarantee that Elon Musk will stick around for at least the next decade.

Investors on Wednesday approved what may be the largest compensation deal in history for its chief executive officer, pegged on ambitions to turn Tesla into one of the world’s largest companies as it ventures beyond solar panels and electric cars. If successful, the award could end up being worth more than $ 50 billion — a sum so large it might just ensure that Musk’s array of other passions and esoteric side projects won’t steal too much time from his work at Tesla.

“I expect to remain CEO for the foreseeable future,” Musk said during last month’s earnings call with analysts. But he didn’t rule out handing over the CEO responsibilities if a suitable successor would appear, allowing him to focus on “design and engineering, which is what I like doing best.”

Musk is also the CEO of Mars-bound Space Exploration Technologies Corp. and has embarked on several other projects of late, including tunnel digger Boring Co. and a brain-computer interface startup called Neuralink. The new award — which was approved at the firm’s special meeting in Fremont, California — requires Musk remain at Tesla either as CEO or become executive chairman and chief product officer.

Tesla said in a filing about 73 percent of the votes cast in person or by proxy at the meeting were in favor of the award, excluding those owned directly or indirectly by Musk and his brother, Kimbal.

Profit Ahead?

Shares traded higher following news of the vote. The stock closed up 1.9 percent in New York. A spokesman for Tesla declined to comment.

The pay plan helps ensure Musk will remain at Tesla at least until 2028, but several questions loom. The award contains a number of audacious goals and no detailed plan of how to get there, including when the manufacturer will turn its first-ever annual profit. Additionally, a series of executive exits in the past year has left Tesla without a clear No. 2 — a potential concern even if Musk stays front and center.

This quarter alone, Tesla has lost Jon McNeill, president of sales and service; its accounting chief Eric Branderiz; and Susan Repo, corporate treasurer and vice president of finance. Going back a full year, Tesla has also lost executives including Chief Financial Officer Jason Wheeler; Chris Lattner, an Apple Inc. hire who left after leading Tesla’s Autopilot engineering team for less than six months; Kurt Kelty, a battery executive; and Diarmuid O’Connell, vice president of business development.

Jamie Albertine, analyst at Consumer Edge Research, said he sees Tesla needing to hire a chief operating officer or a new head of service “at some point in the near future.” Musk said on the earnings call last month that McNeill’s department would report directly to him and that “there are no plans to search for a replacement,” even as some investors fear he’s spreading himself too thin. In 2016, Musk said he was working so hard, he kept a sleeping bag in a conference room adjacent to Tesla’s production line in Fremont.

Billionaire Bait

The award, which won’t vest unless a set of ambitious financial goals are met, had been cheered by some large Tesla investors who said it would help the CEO drive the business forward. Critics, including the two largest proxy advisers, said it was too costly and questioned why Musk, a billionaire who has about half his wealth tied up in company stock, needed more equity to stay motivated.

The board needed majority approval to make the grant, which likely is the largest one-time compensation deal ever awarded. Tesla had said Musk and his brother, who’s a company director, wouldn’t vote their shares.

Under the new plan, Musk will earn one-12th of the options every time Tesla hits a pair of goals: one tied to its market value and the other linked to either revenue or earnings excluding certain charges. For Musk to get all the options, Tesla would have to become worth $ 650 billion — more than Facebook Inc. — and produce more revenue than Procter & Gamble Co.

Tesla has said in regulatory filings that Musk’s award could yield him more than $ 50 billion if all goals are achieved. Some investors have said the package aligns with their interests, signaling they don’t mind if Musk gets wealthier, as long as they also see big returns.

Large shareholders including Baillie Gifford & Co. and T. Rowe Price Group Inc. signaled ahead of the vote that they would probably support the package. Spokesmen for Baillie Gifford and Chinese internet giant Tencent Holdings Ltd. were not immediately available to comment. T. Rowe Price and shareholder Fidelity, which holds almost 10 percent of Tesla stock, declined to comment.

For more on Elon Musk, see Fortune’s video:

Potential Dilution
California State Teachers’ Retirement System (Calstrs), the second-largest pension fund in the U.S., said it did not support the plan, citing concerns about potential dilution and an absence of profitability goals. Large stock awards can be costly for investors in two ways: They can increase a company’s expenses and they dilute the stakes of existing shareholders.

Still, Calstrs is appreciative of Musk’s “visionary leadership,” Anne Sheehan, director of corporate governance at the fund, said in an emailed statement.

Ross Gerber, CEO of Gerber Kawasaki Wealth & Investment Management in Santa Monica, California, which holds Tesla shares, said he voted yes.

“You can’t be a Tesla shareholder if you don’t believe in the company and Elon Musk,” he said in an interview. “The true shareholders of Tesla are all in on Elon.”

‘Pitch Perfect 3’ Stars Reflect on Franchise’s Future and That Icky Band Name

Pitch Perfect 3 is the third film in the popular comedy franchise, but will it be the last?

For stars Chrissie Fit and Hana Mae Lee, who play Flo and Lilly, respectively, the series has run its course, but they’d be open to returning.

“The [ending] montage really felt it was the end,” Fit told FANDOM. “People really love these characters and want to see what’s next for them. Maybe Flo [who becomes an entrepreneur] will finance their next tour.”

Lee, who’s been part of the franchise since the original 2012 film, agrees. “I love playing Lily,” she explained. “If there is [a fourth film], I’m down and I feel people would be excited. If there isn’t, I felt the third one was a really nice ending.”

The Musical Numbers


Pitch Perfect 3 USO
Lee says they got their routines down easier in this film.

Lee joked that she might be getting a little too old to do the intense song and dance routines.

“All of them were challenging because my body is getting older,” she said with a laugh. “You know you’re getting old when you’re being shown dance moves and you’re like, ‘Hmm, I’m going to have back issues and neck issues later.’”

Still, she admitted that the actors’ experience from the previous films was helpful, especially with new director Trish Sie, who comes from a music video background. “We got the dance moves more quickly this time around,” Lee stated. “It’s in our veins.”

Fit, who joined in Pitch Perfect 2, said performing Britney Spears’ “Toxic” was the most challenging.

The scene is the climax of the movie, and the girls find themselves held on a yacht at gunpoint by gangsters.

“There were so many elements to it. The action sequence, dancing, and singing for our lives,” Fit explained. Luckily, the shoot took place on a sound stage instead of open waters.

“Production actually built a yacht on a sound stage which was nuts. They had this huge tank with lukewarm bath water, which was better than jumping into the ocean,” Fit admitted.

“That whole filming day was really fun,” she continued. “We got to be action stars for a minute and afterward you were in a pool with all your best friends. We were playing games, synchronized swimming. It was one of my favorite moments. It felt like we were all kids again.

Many more behind-the-scenes clips can be found on the Pitch Perfect 3 home release, out this week. Other highlights include a gag reel and an intimate and emotional look at the final performance.

That Icky Band Name


Pitch Perfect 3 Evermoist
Openly gay actress Ruby Rose fronts a fictional band called Evermoist.

Speaking of funny moments, FANDOM had to ask both actresses about the name of guest star Ruby Rose’s band. The all-girl band was named Evermoist.

“It just sounds so gross,” Fit responded. “Automatic cringe from me. I think Rebel Wilson is the only one who could hear ‘Evermoist’ and improv seven jokes right after. She started talking about being ‘never moist, ever again’ [laughs].”

Adds Lee, “I was like ‘what is that?’” upon hearing the name. “What’s funny is that it can be real. There could be a really successful band named Evermoist in this world right now.”

And while the girls of Evermoist battled the Barden Bella alums, Fit said the film’s legacy is its empowering message.

“This is how female friendships are,” she explained. “It’s not catty, it’s not divisive. We are stronger together!”

Pitch Perfect 3 is now available on Blu-ray, DVD, On Demand, and via the all-new digital movie app MOVIES ANYWHERE.

This crazy motion detection system is like something out of the future, but you can get it right now

Home Security System Amazon

How many conventional motion detectors would it take to cover every inch of your home. Think about it. Even small homes have so many nooks and crannies that it’s almost impossible to ensure 100% coverage with traditional infrared or camera-based motion detection systems. That’s where the Aura Starter Kit and Accessory Beacons comes in. Instead of using technology based on “sight,” Aura monitors the patterns created by Wi-Fi signals that constantly bounce around every inch of your house or apartment. These signals create patterns, and motion interrupts those patterns in specific ways. Aura can sense those interruptions and identify where motion is occurring. Then, it can integrate with whatever smart home system you use to trigger an action or, of course, an alarm.

Here are the highlights from the product page:

  • Easy setup: Simply plug in the devices and download the Aura app to get started
  • Coverage: Use the Aura Starter Kit to cover up to 700 square feet, and add up to 3 -Accessory Beacons to expand coverage and unlock motion localization capabilities
  • Automation: Connect Aura to your favourite smart home products using IFTTT, or control Aura’s Scenes by voice with Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant
  • Privacy: Aura has no cameras or microphones so rest assured you can keep your private life private

This Is What the Future of Fashion Tech Looks Like

Whether it’s the latest smartwatch, “smart” wearables, or new portable charging concepts, it feels like we’re constantly inundated with the latest products claiming to revolutionize the way we connect with technology. In the fashion world, we’re generally increasing our tech savvy while on the tech side of the industry, innovations are ever more developed with fashion and style in mind. If you’re already on the forefront of the tech sphere, you might have an idea of what will come next. To find out exactly what the future of fashion tech holds, we went straight to the source of the newest product releases.

CES is a conference produced by the Consumer Technology Association and is at the forefront of innovation in the consumer products space. The conference “has served as the proving ground for innovators and breakthrough technologies for 50 years,” reads the CES website, “the global stage where next-generation innovations are introduced to the marketplace.” So, naturally, this was where we looked for the most exciting developments in fashion tech.

What we saw was a major trend in activewear designed with the technology to monitor data like heart-rate levels during a workout. Whether thanks to an external accessory like Spire or built-in garment features à la Xenoma, workouts will never be the same after these products are introduced to the market. Alongside innovations in activewear, we saw name brands like Kate Spade New York and Fossil introducing smartwatches to their collections, making these wearables chicer than ever, and even a line of purses that come with built-in phone chargers so you never have to worry about carrying a heavy portable with you again. Curious to know what else is in store in the near future? We’re breaking down every cool fashion product we saw at the conference below.

Xenoma’s E-Skin activewear tops come with 14-strain sensor strategically built into the shirt to monitor movement like bending, stretching, and twisting joints, meaning the data it collects is a major step forward from fitness-tracking bracelets. Plus, it’s designed to be machine washable for everyday use. Simply put: Workouts will never be the same.
Easily attached to the sleeves, waistbands, or collars of your garments, this wearable accessory syncs with your mind and body by measuring your breath all day and alerting you to sudden changes.
Sleek design and Italian craftsmanship come together in Smartline Jewelry’s Electio hybrid bracelet. The buttons and LED lights subtly blend into the band while the battery and Bluetooth antenna are tailored to integrate into the design, tracking your health and activity in the chicest way possible. This product hasn’t hit the market just yet, but we’re waiting patiently until the moment we can get one of these stylish bracelets on our wrists.
The Fossil-designed shell features a touchscreen powered by Android Wear 2.0, which keeps track of every facet of daily activity from steps to calories and connects with Android and iPhone devices. In gold and rose gold, the chain-link design has a classic feel.
With a crystal dial and star-studded mother-of-pearl face, Kate Spade New York’s hybrid watch is Bluetooth enabled to track activity and sleep, connecting to your iPhone or Android device.
In a structured design with classic hardware, Mighty Purse’s top-handle bag is a perfect choice for women on the go, featuring a concealed slimline battery to charge your micro-USB smartphone or iPhone. Plus, you can also shop the rest of the portable charging bags, clutches, and pouches in the collection.
While these sneakers’ LED soles catch your eye, their built-in motion sensor works to detect movement. It gathers and analyzes your health data in real time. By connecting to your smartphone and computer, Orphe may turn into a musical instrument and controller as well. Now here’s a sneaker that does it all. Opening Image: Style du Monde

The Detroit Auto Show Considers Future Of Self-Driving Cars

The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado High Country pickup

DETROIT (AP) — The North American International Auto Show in Detroit opened to the press this week with one big question hanging in the air: How will autonomous vehicles change the industry?

The answer is still unclear. In the meantime, automakers continue to put out new vehicles of all shapes and sizes, including small cars, SUVs and the all-mighty pickup truck, which dominated the show.

All will be on display when the show opens to the public Saturday, with a charity preview on Friday night.

Here are five things we learned from the preview this week:

TRUCKS ARE KING

Pickups are the most popular vehicles in the U.S., and trucks unveiled at the show make clear that will continue for a long time.

General Motors spent heavily to update its top-selling Chevrolet Silverado pickup, cutting up to 450 pounds of weight by using more aluminum and lighter high-strength steel. The truck also gets two new V8 engines that can run on one to eight cylinders depending on how much power is needed.

Fiat Chrysler’s Ram also got big updates, losing more than 200 pounds and giving it a gas-electric hybrid engine option. Both the Silverado and Ram were given more athletic stances and meaner looks. Ford added a diesel engine to its F-150 and rolled out the midsize Ranger.

Automakers turn big profits on large pickups. Sales rose nearly 6 percent last year to almost 2.4 million, even though total U.S. auto sales dropped 2 percent. Ford’s F-Series is the country’s top-selling vehicle, followed by the Silverado and Ram.

TAX REFORM BOOST?

U.S. auto sales are likely to fall to around 16.7 million in 2018 from 17.2 million last year, says Michelle Krebs, an executive analyst with the car buying site Autotrader.com.

But that would still make it one of the 10 best sales years in history, so the market remains strong.

U.S. income tax code changes this year may stimulate new auto sales, but any increase likely will be offset by rising interest rates and the abundant supply of late-model used cars that pull buyers from new vehicles, Toyota Motor Corp.’s top North American executive says.

North American CEO Jim Lentz expects a sales boost of 200,000 vehicles as tax cuts put more money in people’s pockets. But the increase could be negated as rising rates keep some people on the sidelines, and some buyers opt for a lower-cost but nice off-lease used car.

Tax cuts could boost pickup truck sales because businesses can write off the expenses immediately under the new code, Lentz said.

But he expects luxury new-car sales to be flat this year even though tax rates were reduced for higher-income earners. Any decrease could be wiped out by caps on deductions for mortgage interest and local and state taxes in big luxury-car states such as New York and California, Lentz said.

TRADE DEAL

Many auto executives interviewed at the auto show say they’re afraid the U.S. might pull out of the 24-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement, but they can’t prepare for it because they don’t know what, if anything will replace it.

In ongoing negotiations with Mexico and Canada, the Trump administration is seeking to ensure that more vehicles are made in America, among other changes. But Jim Lentz, Toyota’s North American CEO, says ending the agreement would likely raise costs. That, in turn, would raise vehicle prices and cut demand, forcing manufacturing layoffs. It also would make the U.S. less competitive than the world’s other manufacturing centers, he said. Ending the agreement also could force some suppliers to stop making parts.

Charlie Chesbrough, the chief economist for Cox Automotive, said it’s hard to imagine there will be much change in production, because automakers need a long lead time to act and they know the next president could reverse Trump’s actions. But some automakers are already taking pre-emptive steps to show the administration they’re willing to boost U.S. production. Fiat Chrysler said ahead of the auto show that it will move heavy duty truck production from Mexico to Michigan in 2020.

HEDGING ON ROBOT CARS

Automakers are hedging their bets when it comes to autonomous vehicles and whether they will someday cut into or even end personal car ownership.

In interviews through the week, executives said they’re preparing for a time when people hire self-driving ride services to get around instead of spending on personal vehicles.

But they don’t know just when that will take place, so they also must continue to spend millions to develop conventional vehicles as well.

“These proclamations that we hear about the advent of electrification and artificial intelligence … are all things that, at best, are conjecture,” said Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne.

Although some companies plan to deploy driverless cars to carry passengers in coming months, Marchionne says it will take years for the vehicles to be in widespread use.

Mark Reuss, General Motors’ head of product development says he wishes he knew exactly when and where the switch would take place. But for now, GM and other companies have to be in both places.

“We can go either way and that agility is priceless,” said Reuss.

GOOD OLD DAYS

Despite the new wheels on the show floor, one of the biggest hits is a 50-year-old Mustang GT fastback in need of a paint job. It was one of the original cars used in the 1968 film “Bullitt,” which put the Mustang on the map with a famous chase scene.

Ford Motor Co. rolled it out to help celebrate a special “Bullitt” edition Mustang, which goes on sale this summer. The faded green car got a huge cheer when it rumbled onto the stage.

Cardi B working to make a better future

OHMYGOSSIP — Cardi B is working hard to make things better for her future children.
The ‘Bodak Yellow’ hitmaker is doing all she can now with her career so she can make things better for her future kids as she doesn’t want them to be raised the way she was and wants to be able to give them all she can.
She said: “This is my work ethic: I do not want to raise my future kids where I was raised, and I know the only way to do it is working, working, working, working, working. I don’t want to live in a small Bronx apartment. I don’t want to have three kids that got to share one room. I don’t want my kids to go to school and get gang-affiliated. I don’t want to do welfare. I don’t.”
And Cardi can’t believe so many people look up to her.
She added to Billboard magazine: “When women come up to me like, ‘I am a freaking senator,’ or, ‘I’m a ­doctor’. It’s like, ‘Damn, y’all like me? I look up to y’all!’ It’s not that people want to be like me, but some want to say the things I say and can’t, because they’re afraid. I say it for them.”
Meanwhile, the 25-year-old rapper previously vowed to set a “better example” to her fans.
She said: “I realised, after Halloween, a lot of little girls, they be looking up to me. They love me and I’m thinking to myself, like, ‘Yo, I really need to be a better example.’ But I be trying to be a better example, though, you know what I’m saying? I’ve been trying to be more PG-13, less rated R.”

WARNING: Spoilers for JUSTICE LEAGUE will follow immediately.

Although yesterday's headlines were focused more on the struggling box office performance of Warner Bros.

The iPhone’s OLED future seems all but certain

iPhone X OLED

In the months that preceded the iPhone X launch, numerous reports said that the major players in the display business are investing billions of dollars in OLED production lines, vying for Apple’s orders. Samsung, those stories said, would be the only OLED screen supplier for the iPhone X, which turned out to be true. Once the iPhone X became official, it was clear that Samsung is going to take home a lot of iPhone X cash. The iPhone X’s display accounts for about a third of the handset’s bill of materials.

But Samsung alone couldn’t have possibly met Apple’s demand, which is probably why Apple chose to launch its first OLED iPhone alongside LCD models. Next year, however, things may change. And OLED display stock may not be an issue anymore.
