‘Spider-Man’ swings into dazzling if goofy ‘Spider-Verse’

Much like its hero, “Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse” swings wildly from place to place, in a tone that’s so uneven as to initially be a trifle disorienting. Stick with it, though, and this animated feature — distinguished by its dazzling visual palette, which creates the feel of a comic book leaping onto the screen — proves a great deal of fun, reinforcing that animation remains the ideal medium (if not the most profitable) for superhero adaptations.

How Many End Credit Scenes Are in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse?

With the reviews now in for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, we can reveal whether there are any end- or post-credit scenes in the Sony-Marvel film and, if so, how many.

Turn away now if you don’t want to know!

Still here? OK then…

There isn’t really a mid-credits scene in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, but there is a nice and touching tribute to Spider-Man creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.

The post-credits surprise, on the other hand, is a full-fledged scene.

Again, spoilers follow!

The scene features the surprise arrival of Spider-Man 2099, the Spider-Man of the future. The man under the mask is Miguel O’Hara, voiced by Oscar Isaac (a.k.a. Poe Dameron). His appearance leads to a fun retro-trip to the old Spidey cartoon from the 1960s.

MOVIE APP UPDATE:

Single? Our 30-Day Challenge Will Whip Your Finances Into Shape

Sure, it might seem like everyone in the world is coupling up.

You’ve basically mastered the art of third-wheeling — or fifth-wheeling.

Each day, your friends post engagement announcements: “I’m marrying my best friend!” Then, what seems like a week later, they’re posting month-by-month baby updates.

Yeah, sometimes it sucks you don’t have a go-to wedding date or built-in sounding board, but there’s also something beautiful about being single. You have time to focus on yourself, your career, your relationships and your finances.

If you need some help with that last one — the little ol’ money thing — we put together a 30-day money challenge just for you.

Day 1: Get a Bird’s-Eye View of Your Finances

Now, when someone tells you it’s time to start focusing on yourself, your next question might be, “How? What should I do first?”

Honestly, it’s difficult to know where to start when it comes to getting your money in order, but we suggest tapping into your credit score and credit report.

Yes. Your credit score is very important. The better your score, the better rates you’ll get on a mortgage, car loan or credit card. Heck, a bad credit score could even mean you have to put down a deposit when setting up internet.

Go ahead and peep your credit score to see how you’re doing. You can do so for free through Credit Sesame.

Not only will Credit Sesame give you your score, it’ll also provide you with a free “credit report card,” which breaks down your credit report into easy-to-understand terms and action items.

Day 2: Start Tackling Credit Card Debt

If you don’t have any debt, good for you! Feel free to kick back today.

If you do (and many of us do, so don’t feel ashamed), then think about this: Credit card interest rates can reach more than 20% these days. That means you’re wasting good money that could go toward paying down the principal.

If you’re in this boat, consider refinancing your debt with a personal loan.

A good resource is Fiona. Nope, you didn’t find her on Tinder…

Fiona is a search engine for financial services, which can help match you with the right personal loan to meet your needs.

Fiona searches the top online lenders to match you with a personalized loan offer in less than 60 seconds. Its platform can help you borrow up to $ 100,000 (no collateral needed) with fixed rates starting at 4.99% and terms from 24 to 84 months.

Day 3: Build a Budget (No Math Required)

All right. Remember, it’s Wine Wednesday (that’s a thing, right?), so don’t be afraid to pour yourself a glass before tackling today’s challenge.

But really, this won’t be as painful as you think it will be, thanks to a free app that basically does it all for you.

The Empower app is a powerful budgeting tool that can help you figure out how you’re spending your money and develop a budgeting plan to keep you on track.

Link the app to your bank accounts, and it will track your spending. It will also categorize your spending so you can see exactly where you are overdoing it. That’s right: It will show you just how many times you went out for dinner because you didn’t want to do the dishes.

Set a monthly spending limit, and the app will show you a graph that can tell you in one snapshot just how you’re doing for the month. Are you over the line or under it? It’s that simple to see how you’re doing so you can adjust your spending accordingly.

Sometimes a little accountability is all you need.

Day 4: Look out for Yourself, and Start an Emergency Fund

When you’re single, you have to take care of yourself. To do that, build an emergency fund, a stash of money hidden away in case any unforeseen events pop up.

So… where to begin?

Try Digit, an innovative app that automates saving for you. Simply link it to your checking account, and its algorithms will determine small (and safe!) amounts of money to withdraw into a separate, FDIC-insured savings account.

Bonus: Penny Hoarders will get an extra $ 5 just for signing up! Additionally, savers will receive a 1% bonus every three months.

If you need that money sooner than expected, you’ll always have access to it within one business day.

Digit is free to use for the first 30 days, then it’s $ 2.99 per month afterward.

Days 5 and 6: Snag Cash-Back on Your Weekend Indulgences

It’s Friyay and Caturday (if you’re into that sort of thing), which means it’s time for a night out with friends or maybe a family brunch.

Before you indulge, download Ibotta, a free app that’ll pay you cash for taking pictures of your grocery store and gas station receipts.

You can also earn cash back at your favorite restaurants and bars. For example, if you buy yourself and a friend a bottle of Stella Artois, take a photo of your bar tab, and Ibotta will give you $ 5. (Offers change regularly, so keep an eye for new deals!)

Once you hit $ 20, cash out. Oh, and you’ll get a $ 10 sign-up bonus through The Penny Hoarder, so you’re already halfway there.

Day 7: Fight Your Sunday Scaries With Fun Games

Woman relaxing while texting

Welcome to the Sunday Scaries. It’s time to grab your husband (and by husband, we mean that cozy pillow that tucks right around you) and turn on Netflix. Then, play games to save money.

Yep! The folks who created Long Game have you covered with a game that’s fun and helps you achieve your financial goals.  

As you save and accomplish missions, you’ll earn coins to play mini games for cash prizes. We’re talking the classics, like slot machines, scratch-offs and spin-to-win wheels.

I used Long Game to save money. Every two weeks, it would sneak $ 5 out of my bank account and reward me with coins.

In two months, I saved $ 35.70, just by playing games on my phone. Plus, my winnings amount to a gain of about 2% — way higher than interest on any other savings account I have.

Once you link your bank account, you’ll earn 300 coins, so you can start playing immediately.

Day 8: Find More Affordable Car Insurance Rates

Woman driving her car

Did you know your car insurance rates can be dependent on your marital status? Yeah, not fair.

Either way, it’s time to check your rates to see how much money you could be saving.

The Zebra, an online car insurance search engine that offers “insurance in black and white,” compares your options from 204 providers in less than 60 seconds.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Head over to The Zebra’s search platform.
  2. After answering some questions, it’s time to compare. The Zebra gives you an “Insurability Score,” which is similar to your credit score except it’s for car insurance, and it  teaches you how to get better rates. The site also gives you different options for coverage.

Day 9: Insure Your Most Valuable Asset (or Costliest Expense)

OK, being single is great and all, but admittedly, it sucks when it comes to your monthly living expenses. If you don’t have a roommate, who do you split rent with? No one. And it’s dang expensive.

At least you can shop around for the best renters insurance rates.

Start by pulling a free quote. We recommend the online insurance company Lemonade, through which renters insurance starts at $ 5 a month.

Beyond affordable rates, Lemonade adds a layer of transparency you don’t often see in the insurance world. Instead of profiting extra when it doesn’t have to pay out claims, the company keeps a set 20% of your premium for itself, and 80% goes into a pool for paying claims. Money left over after paying claims each year goes to a cause of your choice.

That also means Lemonade isn’t going to be super stingy about granting customers the claims they deserve — ’cause the money isn’t going into its pockets.

Day 10: Find the Cheapest Internet in Town With One Click

Plugging in internet cable

Today’s the day you’re going to stick it to your internet provider. Seriously. You don’t need anyone’s help.

It’ll take only a couple of minutes to compare rates around town and save a bundle on internet (without committing to a bundle package) when you shop through Squeeze.

Squeeze is free, and it allows you to either switch companies or negotiate with your current provider.

You can also check out its “cord-cutting” comparison. If you haven’t yet cut the cord, go ahead and compare how much your cable costs versus how much a handful of streaming services will cost.

Day 11: Trim Your Cell Phone Bill

Woman using cell phone

OK, does it seem like your cell phone bill increases each month?

Well, it’s time to call in a robot. The negotiation bot Trim will negotiate your AT&T cell phone bill down for you.

You can sign up simply with Facebook or your email address. Then, enter your plan’s account information, and Trim’s AI-powered system gets to work. If at first it doesn’t succeed, it’ll keep negotiating until it can save you some money.

Trim takes 25% of the savings tab, and you get the rest.

Day 12: Pay off Your Debt Even Faster

This challenge will help you cut your monthly expenses. That’s awesome! Now, instead of using that money saved to pay for a Really Bad™ Tinder date, put it toward your debt payoff efforts.

You can also recruit a free app to help out.

It’s called Qoins, and it can help you become debt-free without really thinking about it.

Qoins rounds up each purchase you make to the nearest dollar. The app tracks the roundups and makes withdrawals that it automatically puts toward a debt account of your choice each month.

How it works:

  1. Sign up, and add your lender (the account you want to pay off).
  2. Connect your checking or other bank account.
  3. Start saving and automatically paying down your debt.

Days 13 to 15: Find Some Free Fun This Weekend!

Whoo, it’s finally Friday, so give yourself a break. Have some fun tonight, and let loose on into this weekend.

Got a hot date? Try going on a penny date. All you need is a penny and a 30-sided die.

Or plan a picnic with some friends, pack up the car and go camping, find an open mic night at a local bar, or hit up the local farmers market. If you’re looking to meet new people, you can always find a Meetup group that matches your interests.

Day 16: Breathe a Little Luck Into Your Day

Woman playing with her cell phone

No matter which way you slice it, Mondays kind of, almost always suck.

Before you get too down, it’s time to spice it up with a chance to win some money. Yep. It’s time to get lucky.

The Lucky Day app allows you to play digital scratch-off tickets and enter daily lotteries — for free. You can win cash and tokens to exchange for prizes, gift cards and raffle entries.

It’s all free to play, with no in-app purchases. The company has already awarded more than $ 3 million in prizes to winners since 2014.

Seriously, you could have that “I just found money in my pocket” feeling today just for playing games and having fun on your phone.

Day 17: Get Paid to Watch Videos

Hey, so you’ve probably got a hot date with Netflix tonight… Why not mix things up a bit and get paid to watch videos?

Seriously! InboxDollars pays you to watch TV online.

The site hosts a ton of stuff to watch, including cooking, entertainment, news and health shows. The shows are sponsored by brands that need to get them in front of as many eyeballs as possible. Every time you watch one, InboxDollars will credit your account with a little bit of cash.

Day 18: Try Your Hand at a Survey Site and Get a $ 5 Bonus

If you’re feeling sensitive about being single these days, maybe skip today’s challenge. Sure, survey sites can be an easy way to make money online, but they’re also going to ask you a ton of demographic questions… like, tell us your relationship status. Over and over.

If you want to bank a little extra money, though, sign up with MyPoints. You can earn gift cards when you participate in polls and fill out surveys. Plus, once you complete your first five surveys, you’ll earn a $ 5 bonus.

Day 19: Dip Your Pocket Change Into Some Investments

Man using his phone

Want to give investing a try today? Come on! It’s time to try something new.

Start small, and download Acorns, an investing app that’ll round up your debit and credit card purchases and, once it accumulates $ 5, it’ll invest the spare change for you.

That means if you spend $ 10.23 at the grocery store, 77 cents gets dropped into your Acorns account. Then, the app does the whole investing thing for you.

The app is $ 1 a month for balances under $ 1 million, and you’ll get a $ 5 bonus when you sign up.

If you’ve got a $ 50 bill burning a hole in your wallet, then look into Swell Investing, an SEC-registered investment adviser committed to supporting sustainable companies.

Its Impact 400 portfolio features companies whose products and services align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. It considers everything from gender equality to ending poverty to clean energy.

You’ll get a $ 50 bonus with the code PENNY after making your initial investment.

Swell doesn’t have any trading fees, price tiers or expense ratios. It charges a 0.75% annual fee — that’s about the cost of one coffee ($ 3.75) per year if you invest $ 500.

Disclosure: We have a financial relationship with Swell Investing LLC and will be compensated if consumers apply for an account and/or fund an account with Swell through links in our content. However, the analysis and opinions expressed here are our own.

Days 20 to 22: Master the Art of Earning Cash Back (and Get $ 10 Free!)

Woah… where did this week go?

All right. You don’t quite get this weekend off, but trust us. This task will be fun, especially if you have big plans to do some online shopping. Hey, it’s a treat-yourself kind of weekend.

Before doing anything, sign yourself up for Ebates, a cash-back site that rewards you nearly every time you buy something online. For example, Ebates gives you up to 10% cash back on online purchases at Walmart.

Plus, you’ll get a free $ 10 gift card to Walmart for giving the site a try.

Then check out Paribus, a tool that gets you money back for your online purchases. It’s free to sign up, and once you do, it will scan your email for any receipts.

If Paribus discovers you’ve purchased something from one of its monitored retailers, it will track the item’s price and help you get a refund when there’s a price drop.

Day 23: Find a Bank That’ll Treat You (and Your Money) Right

All right. It’s time to break the never-ending cycle of fees… It’s time to break up with your… bank. Duh.

Radius Bank does more than your average bank to make you feel appreciated. The full-service virtual bank offers perks that traditional banks don’t, including up to 17 times the national average interest rate with the Radius Hybrid checking account.

Radius Hybrid is a free checking account that combines the interest-earning potential of a savings account with the flexibility of a checking account. You’ll earn 1% APY on balances over $ 2,500 (1.2% on balances above $ 100,000).

You’ll also enjoy freedom from fees: There are no monthly fees or minimum balance requirements, and you can be reimbursed for fees from any ATM in the world (yup).

Ready for someone to go above and beyond for you? You can open an account with just $ 100 — in as little as five minutes.

Day 24: Hunt Down a Savings Account That Pays out

So you’ve started an emergency savings. That’s awesome! But now it’s time to make sure your savings is making some money for you — to really cushion your just-in-case plan.

An iOS app called Varo Money combines traditional banking tools with modern technology to help its customers become financially healthy.

Here’s the best part: Pair your Bank Account with a Varo Savings Account where you’ll earn 1.75% annual percentage yield. That’s nearly 20 times — repeat, 20 times — the average savings account, based on a 0.06% average reported by CNN Money.

Day 25: Check Into Your 401(k)

Got a 401(k)? You’re on the right track.

Now, you just need to make sure it’s doing what you need it to. However, tapping into that account and deciphering the information — or lack thereof — can be hard.

There’s a robo-adviser for that. Blooom, an SEC-registered investment advisory firm, will optimize and monitor your 401(k) for you.

It gives you an initial 401(k) checkup for free, and you’ll get to know your account a little more intimately. Find out if you’re paying too many hidden fees, have the appropriate amount invested in stocks versus bonds, that kind of fun stuff.

After that, the tool is $ 10 a month to use to continue to monitor your retirement account. Let Blooom know your target retirement age, and it can help you get there by investing more and less aggressively.

Day 26: Get $ 150 for Signing up for a New Credit Card

How many times do you reward yourself each day? Probably not enough.

That’s because if you’re not using a rewards credit card for everyday purchases, you’re missing out on free money.

You just have to be sure you don’t get too carried away with those purchases — and that the card is paid off at the end of each billing period.

Here’s an option we like: It’s the Chase Freedom Unlimited card. Its claim to fame? You’ll earn an unlimited 1.5% cash back on all your purchases. Plus, if you spend $ 500 in your first three months of opening the card (hi, groceries), you’ll pocket a $ 150 bonus.

Get signed up — and 0% intro APR for 15 months — here.

Opinions expressed here are the author’s alone, not those of the credit card issuer, and have not been reviewed, approved or otherwise endorsed by the credit card issuer. The Penny Hoarder is a partner of Credible.

Day 27: Temper Your Credit Card Use With This Safety Net

Need a little accountabilibuddy when it comes to credit card swiping? You don’t need a human for that. We’ve got another solution.

An app called Debitize basically turns your credit card into a debit card, for free. With it, you can connect any credit card to a checking account.

Whenever you swipe your credit card, Debitize pulls the same amount of cash from your bank account. It stores the cash for you until it’s time to pay your credit card bill. Then it pays that bill for you a week before the due date.

The best of both worlds: You can build credit and get those sweet credit card perks, and also prevent yourself from running up unmanageable debt.

Days 28 and 29: Celebrate the Weekend by Binging Netflix

Whoo! It’s already the weekend again, and you’re almost done with your 30-day challenge!

Take the weekend to binge “The Great British Baking Show” if you haven’t already. Seriously, it’ll make you so happy.

Day 30: Reflect on How Awesome YOU Are!

Congratulations. You’ve made it to the end of your 30-day money challenge!

How are you feeling? Did you finally check off all those financial tasks you’d been meaning to get to? That’s what happens when you have more time to focus on yourself. (No offense, significant others… )

Whatever your goal was, we’re glad you took some time to focus on yourself and your finances. In the end, it’ll set you up for success in the future.

Now, just remember: Before you go jumpin’ into any relationship, be sure to have the money talk before you truly commit.

What Are Miles Morales’ Powers in ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’?

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse might feature a whole team of Spider-Men/Women/People, but make no mistake, this is a Miles Morales film. For fans and critics who have been itching to see Miles on the big screen, this is huge. He’s very much the focal point of the movie, and seeing him grapple with new abilities, alternate realities all while balancing high school makes for a great storyline. He even has a few powers that no other Spider-Hero has, and he’ll get plenty of opportunities to show them off throughout the near two-hour runtime. So, what are Miles’ powers?

 

Spider-Powers



He’s not called Spider-Man for nothing. After he’s bitten by the radioactive spider in an abandoned subway tunnel, Miles quickly learns that he can stick to things as it causes trouble for him in school. He struggles to control his powers, but eventually he’ll be crawling up walls at every opportunity. It’s made clear that he’s not the most agile of teenagers, making clumsy awkward movements as he pretty much trips over his own feet. Luckily, thanks to the superpowers he’s jumping through the air and dodging danger at every turn.

With a little help from an aging Peter Parker, Miles masters the art of web-slinging, but not without hitting signs, lampposts and even a train before learning to glide through the streets of Manhattan. To be fair to Miles, in the most recent trailer Pete only gives him one web-shooter to learn with when hurling him off a balcony. Talk about throwing him in at the deep end. Like all the rest of the Spider-Heroes in the film, he also has Spider-Sense – warning him of danger briefly before it happens. Spider-Sense will quite literally be a life-saver during the many fights in the film, especially since Miles isn’t a trained fighter… Yet. It also helps him recognize other people with the same powers… Spider-Friends!

 

Venom Blast



He might have all the usual Spider-Powers, but he also has a vicious ability which gives him the edge over his opponents. Miles’ ‘Venom Blast’ uses his own biochemistry to attack other people. Crazy. We’ll get it out of the way right now, it has nothing to do with the Venom symbiote, it just happens to share the name. The ability also doesn’t have anything to do with a venomous liquid – it’s actually a huge electric charge that Miles can disperse from his hands when he’s touching something or someone.

Much like the rest of his abilities, it will take some time before he’s able to master it. In the comics, he accidentally used the blast for the first time on another teenager who was trying to steal his bag. That’s a shocking lesson the would-be-thief won’t forget. And once he’s more familiar with his powers, he can even transform his bio-electricity into a physical string of energy he can use in fights. We wouldn’t want to be on the end of that lasso. There’s no doubt that Miles will be able to use his Venom Blast against his enemies throughout Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

 

Invisibility



Miles comes with a few extras that make other heroes jealous. Arguably his most interesting power is being able to turn completely invisible. And although it’s initially played for comedy as we’ve all seen in the trailers, it will become an essential asset to Miles in keeping him alive in his superheroics. The older Peter Parker is just as surprised as Miles at first, and is then instantly jealous that he can’t do it. The dynamic between the two really does look interesting. It first starts to show as a fight-or-flight response in a situation when Miles is scared or feels embarrassed. Remember when Jessica Alba first started showing her powers as the Invisible Woman in the 2004 version of Fantastic Four? It’s very similar.

When Miles’ powers started to manifest after the spider bite, he was trying to hide from his Dad. They didn’t see eye-to-eye on Miles’ friendship with his Uncle Aaron (A.K.A. The Prowler) and were having an argument about it. The young hero was trying to hide from his Dad after their brief fight, and quickly noticed that he was actually becoming invisible. After that, Miles quickly fled. Although when he jumped over two people moving out of their house, he turned invisible again while mid-air. Miles Morales everyone; hide and seek champion.

You can see Miles’ powers for yourself on the big screen when Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse swings into theaters on December 14.

White Supremacist Group Tricked Brett Favre And Soulja Boy Into Promoting Anti-Semitism

A group of white supremacist YouTubers are using a new app to trick celebrities like former NFL quarterback Brett Favre and rapper Soulja Boy into making coded anti-Semitic videos.

Now, Favre and Soulja Boy are doing some serious backtracking after a report from BuzzFeed News revealed that they had been bamboozled.

via mashable.com:

The app, Cameo, seems pretty harmless on its face. It connects Average Joes with celebrities, and allows the former to pay the latter to make some kind of statement. Cameo calls them “personalized video shoutouts.”

According to BuzzFeed News, white supremacists used the app to get in touch with Brett Favre and Soulja Boy, and then paid them to made cryptic statements that were ostensibly supportive of U.S. troops but were filled with anti-Semitic dog whistles.

The group reportedly responsible calls itself the Goyim Defense League (GDL), and they used Cameo to get Favre to issue a statement containing their coded anti-Semitic message.

According to Cameo, a message from Favre costs $ 500.

“Brett Favre here with a shoutout to the Handsome Truth and the GDL boys,” Favre reportedly says in the video viewed by BuzzFeed News. “You guys are patriots in my eyes. So keep waking them up and don’t let the small get you down. Keep fighting, too, and don’t ever forget the U.S.S. Liberty and the men and women who died on that day. God bless and take care.”

According to the report, the usage of “small” is allegedly a slur for yarmulkes, and the U.S.S. Liberty is a naval ship that was “accidentally” attacked in 1967 by Israeli forces.

Favre maybe didn’t realize exactly what he was saying, and he posted a statement to Facebook denouncing the hate group.

“I was distressed to learn that the request came from an anti-Semitic group that reposted my video with comments implying that I endorsed their mission,” read the statement in part. “Nothing could be further from the truth. I am therefore donating my $ 500 Cameo fee to Charities supporting their fight against hate and bigotry.”

Meanwhile, Soulja Boy recorded a similar video promoting GDL ideology.

“Shoutout to Handsome Truth and Sway at GDL,” the rapper says in a video viewed by Buzzfeed News, “GDL for life, bitch.”

A representative for Soulja Boy told the outlet that the rapper was unaware of the group’s affiliation.

“Soulja Boy was unaware that the video on Cameo was tied to a group that promotes hate.”

In any event, according to The Root, the video below may or may not be Soulja Boy describing his retaliation on the GDL when he had been tricked.

An app spokesperson told BuzzFeed News that the videos were removed and that the user who paid for them was banned. The company hopes to prevent something like this from happening again by rolling out new filters.

Yet the streaming service — having roiled the TV business — appears determined to storm the movie-awards competition in similar fashion, which means breaking rules and operating very much on its own terms.

‘MAFS: Happily Ever After’ Recap: Shawniece Goes Into Labor

Baby on the way! Shawniece Jackson went into labor during the Tuesday, November 19, episode of Married At First Sight: Happily Ever After. Jephte Pierre tried to stay calm through the stressful situation and mentally prepare to become a dad. Catch up on what you might have missed during this week’s episode below!

Shawniece and Jephte were a month away from their due date when she woke up in the middle of the night with horrible pains. She was positive the baby was coming early.

“I just want to make sure that she’s safe and that the baby is safe,” Jephte said.

On the ride to the hospital, she completely lost it. She was screaming and smacking Jephte since she couldn’t control her pain. She made it to the hospital and went straight to the delivery room. The episode ended before the baby was actually delivered!

Anthony Finally Takes the Lead

Anthony D’Amico and Ashley Petta made it a point to focus on their relationship both before and after the baby was born. Anthony admitted this week that “one of his biggest fears” was that their relationship would become all about their kid. They took a dance class this week to keep their regular date night and Ashley had a hard time letting Anthony lead.

She finally submitted and followed his lead, but had to let the viewers know that he only leads their relationship on the dance floor.

“I don’t have to do everything he says at home, but on the dance floor I should follow Anthony,” Ashley said.

“Danielle is definitely taking charge and deciding what goes and what stays,” Bobby said. “It seems to me like we’re getting rid of all my stuff.”’

He added that marriage is a compromise, but it seemed yet again like he was the only one making a compromise: “If it was up to me, I would probably get rid of hardly anything … but at the same time, I just want to make her happy.”

Model and beauty entrepreneur Tatiana Elizabeth Price created skinBUTTR out of the comfort of her home. Coming to the conclusion that she wasn’t the only person dealing with skin issues, she leaped into action and turned her passion into a business. After investing $ 100 into a Shopify account, she created a product, posted it on the site, and started generating revenue. The skincare line has now grown to include multiple products that consist of toners, facial masks, cleansers, exfoliators, and moisturizers.

“I started skinBUTTR about four years ago,” said Price. “I figured these products might help other people as well, so I went to school for esthetics and I figured how I could make my products appeal to more people than just myself.”

Activists to NFL: ‘Deposit Funds Into Black-Owned Banks’

The Seattle Medium is reporting that activists in Seattle are calling for the NFL and Seattle Seahawks owner Paul Allen, to deposit 10% of all revenue as well as one-third of the funds making up player pensions, into black-owned banks.

The demands are reportedly spurred by the recent news that Allen, who also co-founded Microsoft, donated $ 100,000 to the Republican Party to help it retain control of the House of Representatives in the midterm elections. According to Federal Election Commission findings, it is the largest political donation Allen has made to an individual or committee.

“I have been out here protesting the economic injustices that have occurred in professional sports and to add insult to injury the owner of the Seattle Seahawks and Portland Trailblazers, Paul Allen donated $ 100,000 to the Republican Party so they can maintain control of the House of Representatives,” said activist Eddie Rye Jr. to The Seattle Medium.

“ESPN, CBS, were bidding over $ 1 billion dollars to have the broadcast rights of NFL games. So out of all the money being generated and the NFL being 70 % black, none of that money is coming back to the black community,” he said.

Rye and several retired NFL players are part of the movement, NFL/Black Community Revenue Sharing Program, to reap benefits for the black community from the economic windfalls black athletes’ talents have provided sports leagues and team owners.

Many black athletes have been inspired to engage in activism since Colin Kaepernick shook up the sports scene by protesting racial injustice with his #TakeaKnee campaign.

In what many considered a bold and risky public relations move, Nike recently made Kaepernick the face if its newest “Just Do It” ad campaign. The decision to use Kaepernick was financially advantageous to the sports apparel company. Ten days after the ad debuted on social media, Nike stock rose to an all-time high on Sept. 13 at $ 83.90 and then closed at $ 83.49 on Friday afternoon. That’s a 4% increase since the ad’s release on Sept. 3, according to CBS News. In addition, Nike’s online sales jumped nearly 31% from Sept. 2 through Sept. 4, which is nearly double the profit that the company garnered during the same period in 2017, according to a research report by Edison Trends.

—Selena Hill and The Shadow League contributed to this report.

Book ‘I’m A Brilliant Little Black Boy!’ Turns Into an Animated Series

In 2016, first-time author Joshua Drummond and his mom Betty K. Bynum co-wrote I’m A Brilliant Little Black Boy, an illustrated children’s book that aims to address the void in animated network programming targeted to African American children ages 6-11 years old. Now media heavyweight Reginald Hudlin of Hudlin Entertainment has commissioned the illustrated children’s book I’m A Brilliant Little Black Boy! for a new animation series entitled Brilliant Boys. “There are no animated series for our boys right now,” says Drummond. “It’s time to address that. I grew up seeing limited reflections of myself, especially in animation form. Today, there aren’t any animated series starring ordinary black boys just being cool and doing fun things. It’s my intention to help remedy that with Brilliant Boys!

With praise from ESPN’s The Undefeated and the Steve Harvey Show, the book garnered support from Academy Award-winning actor Denzel Washington, Samuel L. Jackson, as well as Academy Award-nominated filmmaker John Singleton—all of whom provided quotes for the book’s cover. To turn the book’s message into a movement, the book included a viral video featuring appearances by actor Vin Diesel, Michael Ealy, Blair Underwood, and Omari Hardwick to name a few.

Joshua Drummond

 

In the midst of Hudlin fielding network interest for the vibrant series, we caught up with Drummond to learn more about his commitment to positive representation for black boys as well as how he landed A-list celebrity support.

After noticing the scarcity of books with positive messages available for young black boys, how long did it take you to turn your ideas into a book series?

This book series process took over a year. I wrote during my spare time after school hours for college. I had to make sacrifices. I had to replace partying with friends with staying indoors and writing as well as balancing class and studying schedule so I was able to complete the writing in two months’ time. My family company, Dreamtitle Publishing contacted illustrator Brian McGee and he was all aboard for the illustrations.

The creative phase was the easy part, while the business phase was a learning experience for me. It’s a three-tier process: developing, creating, and marketing. And it’s a lot to each step. I was thankful to have a creative and business-savvy mom, Betty K. Bynum, to mentor me through the process.

How did you gain support from A-list celebrities such as Denzel Washington?

Celebrities in the industry who have an entrepreneurial mindset really understood the purpose of my book I’m a Brilliant Little Black Boy! They felt the message of the book and gravitated toward it. Being born into black Hollywood was a blessing that comes with many perks. Long before I was a writer, my father, Warren Drummond, brought me over to John Singleton’s house to hang out with him and his son. Our families always had a genuine bond, so John was all for it when he heard about the book series. I met Denzel Washington and Samuel L. Jackson during my childhood on projects my parents worked with them on. I always looked up to them as hardworking black actors. My dad mentioned the book to Denzel while working together on Fences, and he and his wife Pauletta gave us support!  I mean, that’s like getting Barack AND Michelle!

You wrote the show bible for Brilliant Boys! along with the 13-episode summaries in tandem with your dad—celebrated film & TV storyboard artist Warren Drummond. What key messages would you like young boys to take away from your book as well as the animated series? 

First, giving credit to my mom, Betty as a producer on this project for having the initial original idea and pushing us forward to create a series based on this book—a lot of inspiration came from Reginald Hudlin’s past and current works. Bebe’s Kids was a well-written and produced show and the same goes for the Proud FamilyThe Boondocks is probably one of my favorite animations of all time, and his work on the Black Panther graphic novel series is some pretty epic stuff. My children’s book focused on one character and his friends were his “boys” for the most part. So the goal now for the Brilliant Boys animation is to focus on a whole group of fun kids with a bit of parental-shouldering in a format similar to those works I just mentioned. Many black children out there come from single-parent households, no parents, and many other frustrating circumstances. I want this show to be fun for them as something they can turn on to see themselves in a fun positive way doing things that they may be thinking of doing or things they can get inspired to do, or just seeing kids that look like them and their friends or family. But still providing simple and clear stories kids can relate to. Just some real fun with jokes and stories—and I learned that from Reggie Hudlin!

Yuval Noah Harari’s Quick Primer on How to See Into the Future

Getty

One of my favorite one-liners is the joke by economist Paul Samuelson that the stock market has predicted nine of the last five recessions. It highlights the idea that sometimes we’re bad prognosticators because we see “trends” that were really just data points.

So how do you tell the signal from the noise? How do you know when something new is also something big? How much do our primate brains and changing weather patterns tell us about the future of immigration or war or online dating apps?

“I don’t think of history as much about studying the past as about studying change,” says Yuval Noah Harari, a historian at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and author of the New York Times bestseller Sapiens. “And one of the main tools for studying change is looking at past changes in human society and political systems.”

High society: El Alto, Bolivia, steps into the spotlight

After landing at El Alto, canny travellers don’t go straight to La Paz but soak up the exuberant architecture, culture and women’s projects of Bolivia’s second city

Most travellers never give El Alto a second thought. Bolivia’s second city, home to the highest international airport in South America (and fifth-highest in the world) at 4,061 metres, it is a place visitors fly into before being whisked to La Paz, the de facto capital, 15km away and 421 metres lower.

Yet, El Alto is emerging from the shadow of its neighbour, thanks to its fantastic rebel architecture, new cable car routes, emerging culinary credentials and the trailblazing input of its first female mayor, Soledad Chapetón. It’s also proudly championing the Fighting Cholitas, female wrestlers who perform regularly at its sports centre, called El Multifuncional .

How to Convert Calls Into Actual Appointments

When you receive a business call from a potential client, it can be difficult to know exactly what to say. Telephone jitters are a legitimate worry for many pros who are otherwise confident in their sales skills—there is too much at stake during that first phone call to get anything wrong. Thankfully, we have a few tricks up our sleeve to help make sure you are always prepared for an unexpected call. Here are some of the best ways to convert business calls into actual appointments.

A young woman is looking at blueprints and talking on the phone. She is working at a construction site. Horizontally framed shot.

Know your brand

Confidence is key when it comes to selling your business to new clients, so a poised and self-assured conversational style will start things off on the right foot. For a business owner, coming across as confident is simple if you know your brand inside and out. Remember who you are, what you represent, and why your services are the best around.

Rehearse the script

While you can never be sure when a homeowner will call, you can practice potential conversations ahead of time to be as prepared as possible. Consider the types of questions a caller may have about your business and know what your answers will be. While it might seem silly, rehearsing calls out loud with friends or colleagues can significantly help you to boost your confidence levels on the phone and come across as knowledgeable and passionate about your brand.

Keep FAQs handy

When you receive a random call from a potential client, they will most likely want to ask questions about your business and address a variety of concerns. Although they can—and will—ask anything, you can usually anticipate some of their queries ahead of time.  Most often, potential clients will want to know about:

  • Your services
  • Your pricing structure
  • Your qualifications
  • Any available references you may have

If you have this information on hand, you can easily refer to your facts and figures when homeowners call out of the blue and impress them with quick, succinct answers.

Anticipate a caller’s needs

When you’re talking to homeowners, it’s imperative to know what stage they’re at in their sales cycle. For example, a homeowner who is curious about the cost of a window replacement or which roof material type is best for their warm-weather home is most likely seeking information that they’ll use in their ‘decision’ phase. On the other hand, a homeowner who has a broken HVAC unit or roof damage from a recent storm is going to have much more urgent needs and will, therefore, be ready to make an appointment with you as soon as possible.

Be approachable

Unexpected business calls can often catch you off guard. Callers often have an uncanny ability to call at inopportune and busy times, but it is essential that you remain professional and approachable even if the timing isn’t perfect. A friendly, welcoming tone of voice and a genuine interest in callers’ needs will be more likely to lead to a follow-up appointment than a curt, sharp conversation that implies you have better things to do with your time.

Suggest a face-to-face meeting

This final step may seem obvious, but extending an official invitation to a client meeting is sometimes the only way to secure an appointment with potential clients. After you’ve answered all their questions and promoted your business the best you can, a face-to-face meeting can seal the deal for a new lead. Even the most confident caller may feel nervous about asking for a meeting, so a straightforward approach on your end will put them at ease and give you a chance to make a lasting and positive first impression in person.

Securing new leads over the phone is a tricky business that requires patience and practice. However, by following these simple guidelines you can put your best foot forward and impress callers with your business acumen, confidence, and knowledge. Before you know it, you’ll be looking forward to these kinds of calls and will be able to answer the phone with ease every time.

How to Turn a Spare Closet into a Powder Room

According to an article published on HGTV.com, bathroom remodels tend to yield 100 percent return on investment – at least. A similar tune can be sung when it comes to adding a second bath. A National Association of Realtors study, conducted by Florida State University professors G. Stacy Sirmans and David Macpherson, revealed that adding a bathroom can increase the selling price of a home by about 24 percent.

That said, while it may make fiscal sense to add a bath, logistics can be another story entirely. For homeowners without a lot of space to spare, converting a spare closet into a half bath could be a clever workaround. Here are three important things to consider before you do so:

 

Consider: Resale Value

As any real estate agent will tell you, homes with at least two bathrooms tend to be more appealing to home buyers – but adding a full bathroom can be costly, time-consuming, and stressful. Half baths, on the other hand, demand less space, are generally more manageable to install, and add value. Long story short: if you have a conveniently located closet, you likely have the requirements necessary to add a half bath. When styling your half bath, stick to simple, neutral styles, which will bode better as far as resale is concerned.

 

Consider: Layout

Once you’ve determined where your half bath will go, start brainstorming what will go in it. As important as style is, functionality is key, so you may want to skip the fancy storage unit and decorative accents and stick to the half-bath-basics: a sink, mirror, and toilet. If possible, give priority to adding a window, which is a clever and effective way to add ventilation and nature lighting. If a window is not possible, opt for a fan/vent system to prevent stuffiness.

 

Consider: SANICOMPACT, by SANIFLO

It’s a shame that our houses don’t evolve as our families do; fortunately, bathroom technology is evolving. At the forefront of bathroom, kitchen, and laundry room innovation is SANIFLO. The SANICOMPACT system by SANIFLO is a compact and self-contained pumping system, which makes it possible to install a new bathroom without a plumbing rough-in. The SANICOMPACT system utilizes up flush technology and features a sleek tankless design. In addition to being an affordable alternative to a traditional plumbing system, SANICOMPACT uses minimal amounts of water, making it an environmentally friendly choice as well.

To learn more about the SANICOMPACT system, visit the SANIFLO website.

T.I. Rips Into Kanye West Over His Meeting With Trump [VIDEO]

Power 105.1 FM Presents Jay-Z I Declare War Concert

Kanye West’s latest meeting with Donald Trump has left a ton of people unsettled, including his peers like T.I. who has recorded music with the rapper. 

“Now I’ve been extremely patient and made it a point to not jump to any premature conclusions about Ye’& his antics… Partially due to the lessons learned from the outcome of other similar situations dealing wit my brother Wayne (which I admittedly mishandled a bit in hindsight) But now this shit is next level,futuristic Sambo,Hopping Bob, Stephen off Django ass shit Ye!!!! From what I can gather,” T.I. wrote in an Instagram post under video of Kanye’s rant in the White House. 

In case you missed it, Kanye West visited the White House yesterday (October 11) to discuss a slew of things ranging from black-on-black crime to unity to make the president look good. It was the last straw for T.I., who once supported Ye. 

“This is the most repulsive, disgraceful, embarrassing act of desperation & auctioning off of one’s soul to gain power I’ve ever seen,” he wrote, revealing that Kanye asked him to go to the White House with him. 

“If you behaved that spinelessly in my presence, I feel that I’d be compelled to slap de’ f**k outta you bro, for the people,” he said. “You’re a** kissing and bootlicking on a whole new level and I refuse to associate myself with something so vile, weak and inconsiderate to the effect this has on the greater good of ALL OUR PEOPLE! At one time it was a pleasure to work alongside you… now, I’m ashamed to have ever been associated with you.”

T.I. also warned Yeezy fans to beware because “this is a play to put him in a position he’d like to see himself in.”

“As long as I’ve lived I’ve learned that it benefits a man nothing at all to gain the world, if to do so he must lose his soul,” he added. “We just saw Mr.West’s Soul on auction. If you listen closely you can hear the tears of our ancestors hit the floor. All I can say is I’ve reached my limits. This is my stop, I’m officially DONE! F**k Trump and his lil’ cookie boy.”
