An ‘It’s Always Sunny’ dream came true for Mac and it’s so pure

TwitterFacebook

Mac finally got his game of catch.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia fans should remember that Mac (creator Rob McElhenney) dreams of playing catch with retired Phillies second baseman Chase Utley. It almost happened in the sixth season of the FX series, in the episode “The Gang Gets Stranded in the Woods.” But, well… the gang got stranded in the woods.

Now, almost 10 years after that episode aired, the dream came true. Utley threw out the Phillies’ ceremonial first pitch on Friday — part of his retirement ceremony — and McElhenney was there — as Mac, to be clear — to catch.

Mac’s history as an Utley fan goes back even further that his missed game of catch. We first learned how hard he stanned back in Season 5, when Dee reads a letter that Mac wrote to the ball player. He asked for a game of catch, complained about his dad, and complimented Utley’s hair choices. Read more…

Jessie Buckley’s Star Is Born in Wild Rose. But It’s Been a Long Time in the Making

If you don’t recognize Jessie Buckley’s warm smile and lilting voice already, chances are you will soon. Having starred in the acclaimed HBO series Chernobyl, and with upcoming projects alongside big names like Renée Zellweger and Keira Knightley, the 29-year-old actor and singer from County Kerry, Ireland, is set to become a familiar face on both sides of the Atlantic.

Buckley’s latest film, Wild Rose, follows a young Scottish woman with high hopes of becoming a country music singer. We meet Rose-Lynn Harlan as she leaves prison and reunites with her two children in the film’s opening scenes. A free spirit, Rose soon struggles with the difficulties of chasing her musical dreams and holding down responsibilities at home. The movie has won raves, in large part for the kinetic energy Buckley brings to the role.

Hailing from a musical family, Buckley first appeared on British TV screens in 2008, as a contestant in the talent competition I’d Do Anything competing for a leading role in a new West End musical. Since then, she has performed on London’s stages, featured in several television series including adaptations of War and Peace and The Woman in White, and won critical acclaim for her lead role in the award-winning psychological thriller Beast. She’s set to star in Charlie Kaufman’s upcoming Netflix thriller I’m Thinking of Ending Things as well as a film adaptation of the family-friendly classic The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle, opposite Robert Downey Jr., slated for release in early 2020.

Despite the growing buzz surrounding her, there’s a distinctly grounded quality to Buckley as she says she has no desire to “sheen herself up” or become more glamorous to appeal to audiences. In the weeks leading up to the release of Wild Rose on June 21, Buckley spoke to TIME about her musical upbringing, channeling real-life trauma in Chernobyl and the kinds of stories she likes to tell.

Do you find yourself gravitating towards certain projects or characters?

Now, I’m asking myself what it is I want to say next. I suppose I quite like going to the opposite side of where I’ve just come from, and I like exploring different aspects of myself. I don’t like settling or feeling comfortable; I like surprising myself and surprising others.

What about the character of Rose-Lynn appealed to you?

The minute I read the script, I just was so excited and unnerved, and thrilled by this boisterous, flawed, human, raw, courageous young mother. Rose is so alive and so human and real. All of the women in the film were breaking outside of the four walls of where they were told they were allowed to exist in and dream in.

What do you make of Rose’s relationship with music, and how it affects her relationships with those around her?

Initially music for her is escape—it’s belonging to something else, and somewhere else. And also, whether she’s aware of it or not, everything that she’s not able to say in her real life, she says it in her music. She wants to be able to say it to her kids but she doesn’t know how to do that. She’s afraid of them in ways, because they make her vulnerable.

Did you have a musical family growing up?

My mum is a harpist and a singer. She’s had five kids and she’s an amazing woman. She’s just gone back to study music psychotherapy at university. Our family is like the von Trapps, it’s madness. My parents gave us an amazing gift: that whatever it is you’re passionate about or want to explore — life is much more fulfilling if you experience it with things like that rather than materialistic things.

Do you ever see any reflections of Rose, or any of your other characters, in yourself?

I never initially, when I read a script, think, “Oh brilliant, that’s me!” Because there’d be no point. I definitely didn’t have that tenacious courage that Rose-Lynn had in the beginning. But for me, I always want to go away with half the character, and half the character go away with me at the end of a job. You have to put a little bit of yourself in there, and they for you.

In Chernobyl, the basis for your character is Lyudmilla Ignatenko, whose husband was a firefighter affected by radiation poisoning. How did you tap into that experience of extreme grief and trauma?

I was terrified of the responsibility of it. It’s still important. It’s real. The story shocked me as much as it shocked everybody else. Everybody knew the word Chernobyl, or had heard the word Chernobyl growing up, but I hadn’t heard the truth at the core of what happened.

It’s such a unique kind of grief that is very hard to understand, because it happened so quickly and [the event was] so massive and horrific. Her story is one of love, and the danger of love. The book Chernobyl Voices became kind of bible to me when I was filming and preparing. It was also useful looking at photos of her, and watching a documentary that she was in. There was always something about her neck for me — almost like she was choked by grief that wasn’t allowed to be spoken about.

Over 10 years ago, you competed on I’d Do Anything and came in second place. How do you feel about that experience now?

I look back at that show now, and myself then, and I’m proud of that young Jessie. For me, I just wanted to sing and be part of something that would otherwise take me 30 or 40 years to even get a toe inside the door. I was very raw, and sometimes, I really was crap. I feel like from where I am now, it’s all been little yellow brick roads along the way. Maybe I dreamed, but I never thought it would actually be possible that I would make a movie. That’s something that didn’t happen to a girl from Killarney.

In the forthcoming film Misbehaviour, you play Jo Ann Robinson, who helped organize a feminist protest against the 1970 Miss World pageant. Did you meet the real life inspiration for your character?

Oh yeah! She’s around and she’s excellent — she’s got dyed purple hair and wears Doc Martens and she is just the coolest cat. The explosion that happened with those women coming out of the 1960s is about sisterhood. It’s about encouraging women and men to respect each other and respect yourself and stand up for yourself, and not be puppeteered or paraded around and be told that you’re not allowed to feel something because you’re put on this plinth of beauty.

Do you think that’s a relevant message in 2019?

I think it’s a story relevant for every era. We have to constantly keep questioning and evolving, and young women need to keep being reminded of that. There’s so much pressure, whether you’re a woman or young man, to succeed and for success to look like something, usually based on money and looks. It’s really soul-sapping, and that’s why these conversations, questions, moments, films and stories, need to keep being told.

How Trump Made Dr. Ruth Break Her Political Silence: ‘It’s So Sad What’s Happening’

Taylor Jewell/Invision/AP/Shutterstock

Dr. Ruth, the pocket-sized 91-year-old sex therapist, has officially put me on notice. “Be careful, journalist!” she shrieks in her thick German accent. “If anybody doesn’t write well [about me], I can still put five bullets into the little red circle!”

She’s kidding (I hope), but the 4-foot-7 sexpert is indeed handy with the steel, having briefly served as a sniper in the Haganah, a Jewish paramilitary force in then-British-controlled Palestine—that is, until an artillery shell exploded at her feet in 1948. The injuries she suffered to her legs were so bad it took her months of intensive physical therapy to regain the ability to walk.

“I was lucky, I never killed anybody…but I could have,” she tells me. “And I was so fortunate that the physician fixed me. I’m a black-diamond skier and can dance the whole night—if I find a good partner!”

Hannity Says It’s ‘Despicable’ to Call for Political Opponents to Be ‘Locked Up’

Apparently, “Lock Her Up!” never happened.

During his show-opening monologue, the pro-Trump cable news star took aim at congressional Democrats over their desire to impeach the president, claiming they are getting assistance from “the psychotic media mob conspiracy theorist liars.”

Scouted: I’ve Been Sleeping on Brooklyn Bedding’s Hybrid Mattress for a Month. It’s the Best Sleep I’ve Ever Had.

Yes, it’s time to sleep on a real mattress, one designed and engineered to support your body and back for years. And while it’s an investment, it’s one worth making: You’ll be spending more time on this thing than you will in your car, on vacation, or on your couch. Budget for it accordingly.

Choosing your mattress is a big deal and requires careful deliberation — it’s also important to choose high quality and comfort in a surface on which you’ll be spending about a third of your life. Like sleep personality Nancy Rothstein told me back in March: “Before heading off to buy a new mattress, the first thing people need to do is look at the value of sleep.” That’s been on my mind since I’ve been sleeping on Brooklyn Bedding’s new Bloom Hybrid mattress — hybrid meaning it combines the versatility of foam with the steadfastness of coils.

It’s by far the most comfortable thing I’ve ever slept on, and my partner and I normally spend our first few minutes in it writhing in bed-comfort bliss — it’s probably adorable. But seriously, I enjoy this bed in three distinct ways. First is the entrance, the moment I lie in it and all my weight leans into its enveloping and comforting support. Second is the sleep. The common fatigue of restless nights is a thing of the past for me now. And third: Waking up is reinvigorating. I bounce up and out of bed and have been relying less and less on snoozes (this morning was only two!). As long as I can help it, I’ll never be going back to a mattress that’s anything less than this level of perfection.

Will Smith previews his version of ‘Aladdin’ classic ‘Friend Like Me’ and it’s actually great

TwitterFacebook

It’s the moment Disney fans are waiting for, and one many are coming at with eyebrows raised — Will Smith’s version of “Friend Like Me.”

The star of the new live action Aladdin takes on the coveted role of the Genie, one immortalised by the late great Robin Williams.

“Robin Williams smashed that role,” Smith told Jimmy Fallon on Monday night, and that Smith himself originally didn’t want to touch the role. “Hell no,” he said, when first asked. And fair enough, people have had their eyes critically fixed on any Genie footage of Smith from square one.

Nonetheless, what pushed him over the line? Messing around with “Friend Like Me,” Smith had the team run the drum beat of The Honey Drippers’ 1973 track “Impeach The President” on top. Read more…

You can get paid to be a spa and hot tub tester and it’s the perfect summer job

Words by Maisie Bovingdon

Summer is just around the corner, so when the sunshine hits everybody wants to ditch their offices and channel their inner child by going out to play outside. Fact.

So, what if we told you you could ditch your nine to five for the perfect summer job, and it may involve sitting in a hot tub in various different spas.

SpaSeekers are recruiting for an official spa and hot tub tester, and we can’t cope.

Your entire summer could involve getting pampered, practicing your lengths in infinity pools, and sitting back whiling away the hours in a jacuzzi, for £500.

The successful candidate can choose any four days between Monday and Friday across July and August to visit four different spas in the UK assigned to them by the company.

They will be given a VIP pass, one free treatment a day and unlimited use of the spa facilities at each venue, as well as two glasses of complimentary champagne.

During each visit you will be required to share images and videos, being sure to tag SpaSeekers and using the hashtag too.

But, there’s a catch.  Applicants have to be UK residents and 18 years old or over to sign up for the role, and payments will be received at the end of summer on 30th September when all the work is complete.

However, if you can’t attend a day the role will be offered to another entrant.

The terms and conditions state: ‘This is not an offer of full-time employment. You will be our summer spa tester and visit four different spas in the UK.  Entries are only open to UK residents aged 18 or over.

‘You will be paid £500 at the end of summer (30th September 2019).’

To apply for the role simply send a picture of your most-loved holiday picture with SpaSeekers on social media, whether it’s you on holiday, on a beach, or sitting in the hot tub.

Whether it is uploaded on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter remember to tag @spaseekers, alongside the hashtag #dreamsummerjob.

The application closes on May 31st, and the winner of the competition will be announced on June 3rd.

Where do we sign up?

Sometimes it gets a little rough,” Ninja, one of the 2019 TIME 100 honorees, said at the TIME 100 Gala Tuesday. “But I think that in general just the Internet as a whole is a place where people can say whatever they want with anonymity. It always needs to be monitored and people need to always be careful.”

But, he added: “I challenge parents to make sure that they’re reading their children’s tweets and their comments on Instagram posts and monitoring them. You know, be good parents.”

Thanks to the blue-haired pro gamer’s mastery of the insanely popular game, he’s extended his staggering reach into an offline empire. Blevins came to the TIME 100 Gala on Tuesday night in New York City to celebrate with the latest crop of luminaries

He said that becoming a professional gamer is incredibly difficult, but it’s achievable with hard work and dedication.

“I think you put your whole heart into what you want. And if you have the time — which everyone has the time — you can play 8 hours a day and still have 8 hours left in your day to go to school, do well, go to work. And even with a full-time job, you can still put in 8 hours,” he said.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster took part in Ninja’s iconic record-smashing stream last year that drew Drake and Travis Scott, drawing more than 600,000 viewers so it was only fitting that Smith-Schuster wrote Ninja’s TIME 100 profile.

“I was among the millions of people all across the world who had been watching Ninja play ‘Fortnite,’ the popular video game, every day for months,” he wrote in TIME. “He was the unquestioned best in the world at his craft, something I had so much respect for both as an athlete and as a fan. Now, he was single-handedly blending gaming and pop culture.”

On Earth Day we see if it’s actually possible to live without plastic

Delphine Chui gives it a go

plastic free

I’ve always considered myself a mindful person when it comes to the environment. I’m vegetarian, I try to be conscious of the origins of my food, I take public transport as much as possible and I’m an avid recycler.

But, if I’m being honest, I’ve never delved into what actually happens to my rubbish or recycling after I chuck it into the respective bins.

So, I took on a challenge to live without plastic for a week and the statistics and realities of what I learnt was shocking. And, although I may never be ‘zero waste,’ I can certainly put a dent in how much I’m contributing to landfill and that’s a start, isn’t it? Here’s what I learnt…

No one is recycling enough

As a nation, we only recycle 14% of recyclable plastic. And around 50% of the plastic we do recycle is never actually recycled because it’s not been properly disposed of. I admit I never looked at my local council’s recycling policy before this week so was guilty of putting things like plastic bags in my green lid wheelie bin (rather than at a specific plastic bag collection bin) and being completely confused about what I should do with bubblewrap (which can jam recycling machines if not put in the right place.)

Our coffee consumption is getting out of control

Think about how much coffee you drink every day. Now, think about how many cups you chuck in the bin. Yeah, I quickly realised that it all adds up, with 7 million coffee cups thrown away in the UK every day – which adds up to 25,000 tonnes of coffee cup waste every year, to be exact. So, I got a bamboo forever cup instead since bamboo is the world’s most sustainable crop. And, it’s worth noting that coffee shops don’t even bat an eyelid when you hand it over for them to fill.

London consumes the largest amount of plastic bottled water in the UK

I’m guilty of it. I constantly buy multipacks of bottled water to bring me to work every day. I liked the convenience of it but considering that by 2050, there will be more plastic bottles in the oceans than fish, we really need to fix this. Plastic bottles make up 10% of all litter in the Thames, with ¾ of the fish inside consuming it, and considering how much I care about animals, these stats really hit home for me.

You can’t really recycle plastic bags

It takes the average plastic shopping bag 100 years to decompose and that’s only if it’s exposed to sunlight and air (which landfill rubbish often isn’t) so that plastic bag you chucked in the bin last week will probably outlast us all. So, now I have a ‘dirty’ tote bag that I put shoes in, a ‘fresh food’ tote bag for any fruit and veg and a ‘dry’ tote bag for everything else.

The sea floor is pretty much plastic

Considering 12.2 million tonnes of plastic litter enter the marine environment each year, it’s no wonder that 94% of the plastic rubbish that enters the ocean ends up on the sea floor. It’s not realistic for me to think I’ll never buy another plastic bottle of water again but I can make sure I only bin it in a recycling bin and never in one that’s overflowing (as these will just end up blowing away)

Plastic is seriously unhealthy for you

Chemicals like BPA and phthalates are used to make plastics and resins and when plastic is heated up (which can happen if your plastic bottle is in the sun for example), these chemicals can leech into the contents. And, since they’re known endocrine disruptors, they can cause a whole load of health issues so I’ve traded in for a glass and stainless steel as they’re both natural elements so are free from chemicals and wholly recyclable.

Plastic cutlery and straws aren’t ever recycled

I’m normally the first person to choose a plastic fork rather than a metal one. But, as it’s too small to recycle, it just adds to our ever-growing landfill. There is, however, a way around it. If you store it in a plastic takeaway container and recycle the whole thing, that works – but otherwise, just choose metal cutlery or invest in a stainless steel foldable spork! And, after finding out that the UK and US use almost 550 million straws a day – most of which end up in the ocean or take 200 years to break down into toxic particles – I’m all about refusing the straw, or using reusable stainless steel, glass and bamboo straws (I got mine from eco straws.) 

What I bought to start my no plastic life

BKR glass bottle, £30

Pukka bamboo coffee cup, £8.99

Cleeve Outdoors stainless steel folding spork, £2.49

Wasara compostable tableware, from £12.99 – 

Alphabet big canvas tote bag, £22

Stasher reusable silicone food bags, £11.99 

Le Parfait Familia Wins Terrine jars, from £5.25, 

Bobble Insulate Stainless Steel bottle, £24, 

Who Gives A Crap 100% Recycled Toilet Paper, £24 for 24

Nature and My bamboo toothbrush, £7.99 

Odylique 2-in-1 shampoo, £12

All Naturals soap, £4.99

Myroo facial cloth and cleanser, £27

Friction Free Shaving razor, from £5

Kjaer Weis make-up, from £20

Woobamboo! biodegradable silk floss, from £4.15

The verdict?

Heartbroken by what I learnt we’re doing to the environment and wildlife (as well as to ourselves), I finally saw just how unnecessary so much of my disposable plastic use was so, not to sound like a poster but really, it’ amazing how much a difference we can all make by refusing, reducing, reusing, repurposing and recycling everything we can.

It’s Official! Shameless’ Jeremy Allen White Is Engaged to GF Addison Timlin

He put a ring on it! Shameless star Jeremy Allen White is engaged to longtime girlfriend Addison Timlin, Us Weekly can exclusively confirm.

The news comes shortly after the pair sparked speculation on Friday, April 12, that they were engaged when they were spotted holding hands in L.A. with the That Awkward Moment actress, 27, sporting a diamond ring on her left hand. Timlin looked casual in a white T-shirt and jeans, with her new bling on full display, while White, 28, was also dressed down for the occasion in a matching ensemble.

White and Timlin welcomed their first child together, a daughter, in October 2018. “Ezer Billie White 10.20.2018 Welcome to the world baby girl, it just got so much brighter,” the actress gushed alongside an Instagram picture of the Movie 43 actor holding their newborn at the time.

The newly minted fiancés announced the news of their growing family in June. “We made a baby and my heart is bursting at the seams,” Timlin shared along with a selfie that showed her beau touching her bare baby bump and kissing her on the shoulder. “Today is my birthday but my wish already came true. This is 27 and the best is yet to come.”

Timlin gave thanks for the couple’s year of blessings in a New Year’s post on social media. “2018, you gave me all I’ve ever truly wanted,” she captioned an Instagram pic of White holding their little girl.

More recently, Timlin shared a sweet shoutout to White on Instagram with a throwback picture from when she was pregnant. “Happy birthday to my very best friend in the entire f–king world,” she wrote. “I love you so much it is stupid.”

The duo starred alongside each other in the 2008 movie Afterschool, however, it wasn’t until years later that Timlin and White embarked on a romantic relationship.

It’s Deadline Day for Trump’s Tax Returns and Mnuchin Isn’t Budging

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin declined to meet congressional Democrats’ Wednesday deadline to provide President Donald Trump’s tax returns, asking for more time to study the legality of their request.

Trump has refused to release his returns since he ran for president, and the clash over their release became a key front in the battles between his administration and newly-empowered Democrats in the House of Representatives. The simmering political conflict may well end up in the federal courts and spill over into the 2020 election.

“The department respects congressional oversight, and we intend to review your request carefully,” Mnuchin wrote in a letter to Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal of Massachusetts.

Neal last Wednesday sent IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig a letter formally requesting six years of Trump’s personal and business tax returns, as well as other documents associated with them, giving a week to respond. Neal on Wednesday said he received Mnuchin’s letter and “will consult with counsel and determine the appropriate response to the commissioner in the coming days.”

Although he did not take a position on whether the returns should be turned over, Mnuchin pointed out that the Ways and Means Committee, when it was under Republican control, had issued a report saying that such a request would be “an abuse of authority” and “set a dangerous precedent.”

Read More: Will We Ever See Trump’s Tax Returns–And Does It Matter?

“Given the seriousness of these issues, which bear no connection to ordinary tax administration,” Mnuchin wrote, “we have begun consultations with the Department of Justice to ensure that our response is fully consistent with the law and the Constitution.”

Trump almost immediately said he opposed the request, and one of his lawyers, William Consovoy, on Friday asked the Treasury Department and IRS to withhold the returns until the Justice Department issues an opinion on whether the request is legal.

Members of the Trump administration, including acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, and their allies have called the request a political attack and a violation of Trump’s privacy.

Federal law gives the Ways and Means Committee, as well as the Senate Finance Committee and the Joint Committee on Taxation, the power to request the returns of any taxpayer, although some legal scholars believe the request needs a legitimate legislative purpose.

In his request, Neal wrote that his committee wants to ensure that the IRS is following its policy of auditing every sitting president and vice president. Democrats have long wanted the returns to examine, among other things, what financial dealings Trump might have.

Senator Chuck Grassley, an Iowa Republican and the chairman of the Senate Finance Committee said in a statement that Mnuchin was “right to consult with the Department of Justice before responding more fully. House Democrats’ unprecedented request has serious implications for all Americans and requires serious, careful analysis.”

Senator Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat, said in a statement that “There is no excuse for Secretary Mnuchin to not meet Chairman Neal’s deadline.”

“The law is clear and consultation with the Justice Department is not required. It’s a sign of political interference that Secretary Mnuchin said he is handling this request when authority has been delegated to the IRS,” Wyden said.

Mnuchin told lawmakers on Tuesday that the department had been in touch with White House lawyers before Neal made his request but had not personally been fully briefed on those discussions. He said, “It is our intent to follow the law.” Mnuchin has said he is concerned about the precedent the demand could set for violating taxpayer privacy.

“The general public, when they elected President Trump, made the decision without his tax returns being released,” Mnuchin said.

Trump broke with 40 years of presidential campaign tradition by declining to release his personal returns before the 2016 election. He said that he was under audit and didn’t intend to turn anything over until that process had been completed. Under questioning at a House hearing on Tuesday, Rettig said that he was unaware of any prohibition against a taxpayer releasing his or her returns while being audited.

Speaking to reporters before departing for a trip to Texas on Wednesday, the president reiterated that he would not release the returns while under audit and asserted that Americans don’t care in any case.

This College Basketball Team Banned Smartphones. Now It’s in the Final Four

Texas Tech men’s basketball team, the parents of America salute you. Our country’s coaches also offer a hearty thanks, as does any teacher who’s had to battle an electronic device for attention. Why are millions of us so grateful to the Red Raiders? Well, because of your actions, we can now — with a straight face — tell our children, our players, our students that if they just put down their stupid phones and go to sleep already, they too can make the Final Four.

These Red Raiders aren’t just a very fine basketball team that will face Michigan State in Saturday’s second national semifinal, in Minneapolis (Virginia plays Auburn in the first game, which tips off at 6:09 eastern). They’re also borderline heroes who’ve done more to prove the power of a tech disconnect than a dozen Ted Talks combined.

Texas Tech’s glorious work all started before a Feb. 9 road game at Oklahoma. The Red Raiders had just lost three straight road games against conference opponents (Baylor, Kansas State, and Kansas). So senior captain Norense Odiase, a 6’9″ center from Fort Worth, came up with an idea: let’s bag up all our cell phones before bed. “Get locked in,” says Odiase. “No distractions.” The players complied — some with more protest than others — and Texas Tech won 66-54 the next night. A routine was born.

Texas Tech’s third-year coach, Chris Beard, already has no love for cell phones: he bans them at team meals, and at a two-day team bonding retreat at a ranch some 100 miles south of Lubbock, his players surrendered their devices. (They did karaoke instead of scrolling through Instagram). So Beard pushed Odiase’s idea even further: cell phones would be collected on all nights of a road trip, not just the night before a game. “That was never my idea,” says Odiase. “Some of the guys give me some stuff for that.”

They shouldn’t: Tech’s a cool 13-1 since the Odiase-ordered ban. Every night at a hotel, Texas Tech junior manager Cooper Anderson knocks on player doors around 11, to collect the contraband. He puts them in a red and black Texas Tech cooler bag (without the ice). He hears a smattering of groans: senior Bradone Francis, according to Anderson, gives him the most gruff. “He’s a good guy,” says Anderson. “But he likes his phone a lot.” I asked Francis about his feelings on the ban, but by the time he looked up from his phone to offer an answer, he had to leave for practice.

Indeed, the ban has required some adjusting. “At first, it was tough,” says sophomore guard Parker Hicks. “Our whole generation wants to look on our cell phones.” Hicks was used to idling away on Twitter before hitting the hay. “Actually having to lay there and actually go to sleep is kind of different,” says Hicks. “You look at the ceiling and look at random things. Count to ten or something. Count the sheep.”

The upside of unplugging, however, has become clear. Ever since Texas Tech beat top-seeded Gonzaga in the Elite Eight to clinch a spot in the Final Four, Tariq Owens’ phone has exploded. Everyone’s reaching out to him. “Just to be able to get away from it, just live in the moment, feels great,” says Owens, who before transferring to Texas Tech as a graduate student, played at Tennessee and St. John’s. “I know this for a fact, not a lot of teams would be happy about it. This is the kind of culture we have. Guys don’t care about it. We’re locked into more important things than cell phones.”

So let’s give Odiase, architect of one of the best bans ever, one more fist-bump. He has a message for the kids of America. “Your phone will always be there, your friends will always be there, notifications, all that stuff, will always be there in the morning,” he says. “Just get some rest.”

So you can cut down the nets.

A professor and his students turned an observatory into a giant R2-D2, and it’s amazing

r2-d2 observatory

People who study science day in and day out usually have some fondness for science fiction, and Professor Hubert Zitt is no exception. Zitt, who lectures at Germany’s University of Kaiserslautern, happens to be a huge fan of Star Trek and Star Wars, and when he looked at the Zweibrücken Observatory he clearly saw what it resembled.

The dull, grey observatory served an important purpose for scientists, but it was also a bit drab looking. So, with the help of painter Klaus Ruffing and some of Zitt’s own students, the tall dome got an extreme makeover and now it sports some serious Star Wars flair.

MAC is launching an Aladdin collection and it’s about to open up a whole new world of magic

Calling all Disney lovers…

MAC Aladdin

Words by Sophie Saleh

Your wishes are about to come true, as MAC has announced a collaboration with Disney’s live action Aladdin movie, which hits cinemas on the 24th May.

Packed with a mix of precious metals and Jasmine-inspired jewel tones, there’s no doubt you’ll be left feeling like a princess when this drops.

MAC’s senior artist and BBC 3 Glow Up judge Dominic Skinner took to Instagram to confirm the news, writing: ‘Just you wait till you see what the collection has in store for you!! Your wish, our command!

‘Manifest your magic with the Disney Aladdin Collection by M·A·C. Launching this May, this wish-fulfilling collaboration highlights the self-determination and confidence of Princess Jasmine in the upcoming live-action adaptation of Disneu’s animated classic, Aladdin – in theatres May 24.’

The campaign puts Naomi Scott, who plays our hero Princess Jasmine in the upcoming film, at the forefront adorned in turquoise and gold.

A lot of the details are still yet to be released, but at the moment there are three products that we know about – cleverly mirroring the Genie’s three wishes granted to Aladdin. Until then, you can sign up for Aladdin updates on MAC’s website.

So far we’ve seen an eyeshadow palette, lipstick and bronzer, all encased in beautifully golden packaging, and MAC have shared some of the eyeshadow swatches on Instagram. All we can say is, take our money NOW.

MAC Aladdin

We’re already lusting over the nine-pan eyeshadow palette filled with purple and golden shimmers, and the hot pink lipstick named A Whole New World has really caught our attention. Not to mention the warm-toned bronzer that we hope will give us that Jasmine-esque glow.

The limited edition collection is said to be available on the 1st of May, so be sure to save that date as it’s going to sell out pretty fast. And, if we’re lucky, there may be a few more additions to the colourful range.

Thanks, Genie.

Louis Vuitton Pulls All Michael Jackson-Themed Pieces From It’s Fall Menswear Collection

Virgil Abloh paid homage to Michael Jackson during his second Louis Vuitton runway show this past January. It was clear the Abloh, like many others, was influenced by Jackson’s style, music, and overall presence. Since the premiere of the HBO documentary Leaving Neverland, a slew companies have removed the pop icon’s songs, music videos and memorabilia from their respective platforms to show their solidarity with the alleged victims. Abloh and Louis Vuitton have decided to join the movement by pulling all Michael Jackson-themed clothing from their fall menswear collection.

In a statement to WWD, Abloh said, “I am aware that in light of this documentary the show has caused emotional reactions. I strictly condemn any form of child abuse, violence or infringement against any human rights.” In paying homage to Jackson in the collection, he said his “intention for this show was to refer to Michael Jackson as a pop culture artist. It referred only to his public life that we all know and to his legacy that has influenced a whole generation of artists and designers.

This is a bold move considering the entire collection was inspired by the artists. From the show invitations to the background music, it was clear that Jackson was a huge inspiration to the designer.

Sara Tariq Recaps ‘Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club’: When It’s Just a Mykonos Thing

Lindsay-Lohan’s-Beach-Club-Recap
Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club MTV

Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club VIP host Sara Tariq will be recapping exclusively with Us Weekly each week about her opinion on the latest episode. Check back every week for her recap!

Alexa, play “Act Up” by City Girls. This song is a whole mood. You’re welcome.

It’s me, Sara Tariq, back to explain more of my boy drama while I was out in Mykonos. If you’re still trying to figure out why the show revolves so much around it — well, we are in the same boat my friends, because I am too.

The episode starts off with Lindsay Lohan explaining that she just wants us to be happy together and get along … so she puts us on yacht. Sailing through the Mediterranean on a nice-ass boat with unlimited alcohol after all of the emotional turmoil I’ve been dealing with all summer? Sign me up. We were all super excited for this day. All I know is that I wasn’t going to let anything f–k up my vibe because my summer has been everything but smooth sailing thus far. From being called an idiot on television to being blatantly ignored by someone you care about and developed genuine feelings for, in front of his “family”/friends was more than I saw myself getting into prior to signing up for this experience but hey, this is how you party in Mykonos, bitch.

I feel like I finally got to showcase my personality a bit more this episode. I was overshadowed by my Brent drama and relationship the entire season. This is when I started to finally let loose and not have the pressure of walking on eggshells about everything because I was in such a vulnerable place before. But alas, Lindsay thinks I was causing drama when that wasn’t my intention at all. I was just over everything and wanted to have some fun. Cue “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun.”

Why did I kiss Billy? Because he’s cute, duh. Now, do I want to wife him up? Meh, probably not. I mean I kissed Alex too, who’s clearly gay as f–k, but I don’t really care about anything at this point (we all go through that phase after a breakup, right?). So what? I just got out of a relationship and we’re catering to girls/gay clientele every week, not that I prefer pimping myself out to clients, ahem, cc: Brent. But I’m obviously just going with the flow and having fun with it.

Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club
Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club MTV

I actually do have a soul, though, and I did feel bad for Brent, yet I decided to be a little selfish this day. There’s nothing wrong with that. Sometimes you need to think about yourself before others because self-love is important. Frankly, I feel like you can never have enough and I need more of that for myself — still, to this day.

Shout-out to having real friends, though. Like everyone in the house who had my back and felt for me while second-hand dealing with my bulls–t/questionable decisions. You guys are the true MVPs. Seeing Jonitta stand up for me the way she did in this episode really tugged at my heart. Being there for your homegirl and standing up for women as a whole never gets old and she was truly a class act after everything she had been through while we were out there as well. So thank you for that, J. She’s a real one.

Even though Lindsay hears things through the grapevine and assumes I’m causing drama. I see it all now and I wish I could have explained myself to her more but you guys will just have to have your popcorn ready and tune in to find out how it all unfolds. Maybe I shouldn’t have taken one out of Brent’s handbook of stirring the pot? I thought we were being rewarded for it so I’m just as confused as you. It’s always risky pulling a you on you. So until then, always have respect for yourself, stand up for yourself and stay classy, my friends!

Queen Elizabeth posted her first Instagram message ever, and it’s so sneakily feminist

In case you didn’t know: Queen Elizabeth II is officially posting on Instagram. And she used her first message to the public to share an often overlooked piece of feminist history. On Thursday, March 7th, the monarch took to the Royal Family’s official Instagram feed to share a letter she discovered to her great-great grandfather.  “Today, as I visit the Science Museum I was interested to discover a letter from the Royal Archives, written in 1843 to my great-great-grandfather Prince Albert,” she began, explaining the letter was from Charles Babbage, who is credited as the world’s first computer pioneer.

“In the letter, Babbage told Queen Victoria and Prince Albert about his invention the ‘Analytical Engine’ upon which the first computer programmes were created by Ada Lovelace, a daughter of Lord Byron.”

Lovelace has been called the first computer programmer for her work and ideas. And while many of her contributions were not fully recognized until the 1950s, the early programming language Ada was named for her as a tribute to her groundbreaking work.

Queen Elizabeth closed out her message by explaining that since she “had the pleasure” of learning about children’s computer coding initiatives that day, the letter seemed “fitting” to share. She signed the post “Elizabeth R.”

Thank you for this feminist history lesson, Your Majesty!

Head-to-Head Breakdancing Battles As an 2024 Olympic Sport? It’s a Possibility

The summer Olympic Games are a chance for athletes from around the world to show off their skills in the pool, in track and field and gymnastics, and, if organizers have their way, in breakdancing. That’s right, it’s time to bust out your kneepads, the Breakin’ 2: Electric Boogaloo soundtrack, and your flyest sneakers and start practicing your headspins.

Organizers of the 2024 Olympic Games, which will be held in Paris, have proposed that breakdancing should be included as a new sport in the Olympic program, along with surfing, climbing, and skateboarding, which are already set to debut at Tokyo 2020, The Telegraph reports. The Paris 2024 organizing committee argued for the sport’s inclusion on the grounds that it is already legendary for its dance battles and breakdancing is an “urban, universal and popular sport with more than a million BBoys and BGirls” already busting a move in France. Plus, head-to-head breakdancing battles already made an appearance at last year’s Summer Youth Olympic Games in Buenos Aires.

The decision to include the sport, which grew up alongside hip hop in the South Bronx of New York City, isn’t final yet, as the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has until December 2020 to make a decision. However, based on their response to the announcement, they seem all in on the idea. “We are pleased to see that Paris 2024’s proposal for new sports to the Olympic programme is very much in line with the reforms of Olympic Agenda 2020, which is striving to make the Olympic programme gender-balanced, more youth-focused and more urban,” an IOC statement read, per The Telegraph.

If breakdancing does make the cut, it will join the 28 sports already in the Olympics program. While some people may balk at the idea of breakdancing as an Olympic sport, never forget that both horse long jump, dueling pistols and solo synchronized swimming were all considered worthy back in the day.

LG says it’s ‘too early’ for foldable phones

TwitterFacebook

You may want to just slow your roll for minute with this whole foldable phone thing. 

While electronics giants such as Samsung are reportedly charging ahead to release smartphones that bend as early as this year, at least one major player in the space is taking this opportunity to sit back and see how it all plays out. That would be LG, whose head of mobile Brian Kwon told reporters that the company has decided now is not the right time for LG to release a phone that bends.   

“We have reviewed releasing the foldable smartphone when launching 5G smartphone but decided not to produce it,” Kwon is quoted by the Korean Times as saying on Feb. 15.  Read more…

John Legend Releases His First Single Of 2019 And It’s Powerful [VIDEO]

John Legend’s first release of 2019 takes us to church. In his powerful new single called “Preach,” he addresses what’s wrong with the society we live in today, his faith & wanting people to put action behind their words to make change.  

“I grew up in the church and one of the things we talked about was loving our neighbors as we love ourselves,” Legend said in a recent Instagram video promoting the new song. “My preacher told me that our neighbor wasn’t just the person that lives next door to you but other people whom you might not even know.”

You absolutely must play ‘Far Cry 5’ before touching ‘Far Cry: New Dawn’. Seriously, it’s worth it.

Warning: One absolutely unavoidable (and major) spoiler for Far Cry 5 is below, but chances are you’ve already heard about it.

Ah, the “standalone sequel.” It’s a tricky beast. Of course players want it to work. Heaven knows studios want it to work. Unfortunately, it rarely works. 

Far Cry: New Dawn is no exception – but that is far from a bad thing.

The latest Far Cry spinoff takes us back to Hope County, Montana, the setting for all of the events in its fifth main game. While we’re dealing with a completely new story line, (almost) entirely different characters, and an elaborately re-skinned environment, newcomers shouldn’t plan on enjoying this chapter sans Far Cry 5 knowledge. Note that I’m saying “shouldn’t” and not “couldn’t.” Read more…
