'Kingsman 3' Takes Over James Bond Release Date; Here's Everything We Know

Success maketh another sequel. Kingsman 3, revealed last year as being a possibility, has now been officially greenlit for a 2019 release. While the previous installment, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, was not as well-received by critics as the original, Kingsman: The Secret Service (53% vs. 74% on Rotten Tomatoes), the sequel did about match the first movie's worldwide gross ($ 411 million vs. $ 414 million). Doing a third (and more) is obviously a good decision by Fox.

Lebron James Unveils New Nike Sneaker Inspired By Black Women

(Photo by ChinaFotoPress)

NBA superstar LeBron James debuted his latest Nike collaboration Tuesday night, revealing that they were inspired and designed by African American women, Black Enterprise reports.

According to the outlet, the sneakers were unveiled at Harlem’s Fashion Row (HFR) style awards and fashion show, an annual event that celebrates people of color in fashion and empowers minority designers with a platform to showcase their collections during New York Fashion Week. This year, the event was sponsored by Nike.

“I believe that African American women are the most powerful in the world,” said James at the gala while accepting Harlem’s Fashion Row’s “Icon 360 Award” for his style and philanthropy. “Why I believe they are the most powerful women in the world is because I had the example of my mother every single day.”

The Los Angeles Laker credits his wife, mother and daughter as a source of inspiration behind his 16th sneaker, the HFR x LeBron 16, titled “The Strongest.”

“Being the son, husband, and father of strong African American women, I felt like this was something I wanted to do for them and for all the strong women out there who are succeeding despite what might be stacked against them,” he said in a statement.

via BlackEnterprise.com:

HFR founder Brandice Daniels, who created the New York City-based fashion collective in 2007, recruited three black designers for the project: Kimberly Goldson, Felisha Noel, and Undra Celeste Duncan. Together, Daniels and the trio of designers learned how to design a performance shoe at Nike World HQ, according to Nike News. They also worked closely with Nike global basketball footwear designer Meline Khatachourian and James’ longtime footwear designer Jason Petrie throughout the design process.

“The partnership with Nike came about because a great girlfriend, who I had met years ago, introduced me to [Nike’s team,]” Daniels told Black Enterprise. “Relationships are everything.”

James closed his acceptance speech by noting that he “stands with Nike” after the company faced backlash from their latest Just Do It ad campaign featuring Colin Kaepernick.

James and Nike tapped Harlem’s Fashion Row to design the HFR x LeBron 16, making it the very first LeBron signature shoe to be reimagined by female designers. HFR founder Brandice Daniels, who created the New York City-based fashion collective in 2007, recruited three black designers for the project: Kimberly Goldson, Felisha Noel, and Undra Celeste Duncan.

Daniels also praised James for using his influence to make positive community contributions. “He’s absolutely a style influencer,” she told BE. “And what I love is that he is using his influence and his platform to bring so many other people along for the ride.

James, a philanthropist and entrepreneur, also talked about the other ways he is using his powerful platform to make an impact beyond the court. “Less than a month ago, I was able to go back home and build a school,” he said at the gala, referencing his newly opened I Promise School in Akron, Ohio. “What I stand for and what I do just comes straight from my heart.”

“I Stand with Nike”

James closed his acceptance speech by reaffirming his alignment with Nike, which is experiencing backlash and a drop in stock due to its new marketing campaign featuring former NFL star Colin Kaepernick. “I stand with Nike all day, every day.”


The HFR x LeBron 16 will be released Sept. 7 exclusively on SNKRS in North America and on nike.com.

Idris Elba Joins Indie Film ‘Ghetto Cowboy’; Reportedly In Official Running For James Bond

(Photo credit: PR Photos) 

Idris Elba will definitely play an estranged father in North Philly, and is now seriously being considered to take over as Agent 007 in the James Bond franchise, according to new reports.

First, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that Elba will star in and produce the indie film Ghetto Cowboy. The film follows 15-year-old Cole, who is forced to live with his estranged father, Harp (Elba), in north Philadelphia where, despite the surrounding poverty and violence, he discovers the redemptive world of urban horseback riding.

The movie is based on the 2011 novel of the same name by Greg Neri. Dan Walser and Ricky Staub wrote the screenplay, with Staub set to make his directorial debut on the project.

Elba will produce under his Green Door Pictures banner, along with Jeff Waxman, Jen Madeloff, Sam Mercer, Tegan Jones and Dan Walser.

As for Bond, James Bond… rumors of Elba replacing Daniel Craig creeps back into the rumor mill this week after word that franchise producer Barbara Broccoli said that Elba is indeed under consideration.

According to the UK’s Daily Star, the news comes from Equalizer 2 director Antoine Fuqua, who has nothing to do with the Bond franchise, but said he recently had a conversation with Broccoli. Apparently, she indicated that it’s time for the spy to be played by an actor of color, and Elba, 45, is at the top of her list.

Broccoli or MGM has yet to confirm or deny this report.

Fuqua went on to ponder the thought of Elba’s physical ability to tackle the role.

“Idris could do it if he was in shape. You need a guy with physically strong presence. Idris has that,” he said.

LeBron James Signs Deal For Showtime Doc On New NBA

(AP Photo/Phil Long)

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — LeBron James has yet to play a minute for the Los Angeles Lakers, yet the NBA superstar is already busy in Hollywood.

James is behind the three-part documentary series, “Shut Up and Dribble,” announced Monday by Showtime.

Set to debut in October, the same month James suits up for his new team, the series looks at the changing role of athletes in the current political and cultural climate against the backdrop of the NBA.

Its title comes from a comment Fox News host Laura Ingraham made to James in February when she sought to rebuke him for talking politics during an interview.

James is the executive producer of the series along with his business partner Maverick Carter and his agent Rich Paul. Gotham Chopra, who directed Showtime’s “Kobe Bryant’s Muse” in 2015, helmed the project.

The series traces the modern history of the league and its players starting with the 1976 merger of the freewheeling American Basketball Association and the National Basketball Association, how the top players have expanded their notoriety off the court in fields such as business and fashion while becoming icons in the process.

James has another show, “The Shop” debuting Aug. 28 on HBO in which he leads conversation and debate among his guests in barbershops around the country.

James found himself drawn into politics last week when President Donald Trump unleashed a withering attack on him in a tweet after an interview aired with CNN anchor Don Lemon in which he deemed Trump divisive.

Although James has long been a Trump critic, calling the president “U bum” in a 2017 tweet, the tweet was Trump’s first attack on the player, who just opened up a school for underprivileged children in his hometown of Akron, Ohio.

“Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon,” Trump posted. “He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do.”

With LeBron James Tweet, President Trump’s War on Sports Hits a New Low

The missive, sent from the White House at 10:37 p.m. Friday night, delivered nausea to decent people.

On the week LeBron James opened his school serving disadvantaged children from his hometown of Akron, Ohio, giving the kids and their families a singular opportunity — not to mention free college tuition to all who graduate — Donald Trump questioned the intelligence of a bonafide basketball genius. Sports smarts count. Off the court, James has started several businesses — a sports agency, a Hollywood production outfit — and become a meaningful philanthropist. Not to mention that he also possesses a photographic memory: James can recall minute details of basketball games on command.

What a strange target for Trump: one of the brightest, most popular athletes in the world. But facts don’t seem to bother this President. “Lebron (sic) James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon,” Trump tweeted on Friday night, referencing an interview Lemon, the CNN anchor, conducted with James to mark the opening of James’ I Promise School. “He made Lebron (sic) look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!” Here, Trump’s referring to another all-time NBA great, Michael Jordan.

There he goes again, Trump weaponizing sports to divide the country that he leads. To Trump, you either stand with him, or with Colin Kaepernick and any NFL “son of a bitch” — the President’s words — who kneels during the national anthem. Now, besides insulting yet another African-American athlete, Trump’s trying to co-opt the sports bar debate about the greatest basketball player of all-time. Jordan’s now his guy. You either stand with Trump and His Airness, or side with LeBron.

Opponents of the anthem protests complain that athletes are spoiling their sports diversion with politics. Stick to sports, so to say. But if that’s the case, shouldn’t politicians just concern themselves with politics? Mr. President, leave the GOAT talk alone.

James is a harsh critic of the President, which has apparently drawn Trump’s ire. In this interview with Lemon, James said that, “I believe our president is trying to divide us … what I’ve noticed over the last few months is that he’s kind of used sport to kind of divide us. That’s something I can’t relate to, because I know that sports was the first time I was around someone white. I got an opportunity to see them and learn about them, and they got an opportunity to learn about me, and we became very good friends. I was like ‘this is all because of sports.’ And sports has never been something that divided people. It’s always been something that brings someone together.”

In September, after Trump called the NFL players protests social injustice “sons of bitches” at a political rally, and rescinded a White House invitation to the NBA champion Golden State Warriors – even though the Warriors never planned to attend — James called Trump a “bum” on Twitter. If Trump was going to fire back at James, that would have been a more opportune time. But instead of praising an athletic icon for opening a school, Trump basically called James a dummy.

On Saturday morning, Lemon offered a pointed response to Trump. “Who’s the real dummy?” Lemon wrote on Twitter. “A man who puts kids in classrooms or one who puts kids in cages? .” James hasn’t responded to Trump’s tweet. He has every right to fire back, of course, but I kind of hope he doesn’t. I hope he saw Trump’s tweet, shook his head, laughed a little, and kept doing the good things he’s doing. Maybe he played hoops with his son; maybe he worked on his own game. Maybe he did some more planning on the I Promise School.

These all speak louder than a President’s Tweet.

Special Tip Update!

The Money Behind LeBron James’ Lakers Move

After years of fumbling around with the rebuilding of a franchise in Northeast Ohio, it is now official. LeBron James will be heading to Los Angeles this summer in a four year, $ 154 million-contract, declining to exercise his $ 35.6 million player option with the Clevland Cavaliers.

There were indeed legitimate championship contending teams interested in James’ signature. The Philadelphia 76ers needed a superstar who has been there, done that. The Houston Rockets would have immediately become favorites had James joined forces with Chris Paul and James Harden. There were even talks that he could land in Toronto. But the four-time MVP and two-time Olympic gold medalist, at 33 years old, wasn’t going to make this decision lightly. Unlike “The Decision,” it was never going to be purely on a team’s basketball acumen or history.

WHERE THE KING GOES, THE MONEY FOLLOWS

Everywhere he goes, James, along with his billion-dollar body, carries an economic windfall that is parallel to no other athlete. Shortly after James announced his return to Cleveland in 2014, Cavaliers’ ticket sales spiked by more than 100 times, jumping from $ 25 to a staggering $ 386. Season tickets sold out within hours, and according to a Cleveland.com report, his return to Ohio resulted in a nine-figure economic boost for downtown Cleveland.

In the wake of his announcement, Lakers season tickets, which were selling for $ 3,499 each, skyrocketed to $ 5,800 just 20 minutes after the announcement. One person, according to ESPN W paid $ 188,781, including fees for four season tickets on StubHub. The seats, which are 16 rows up, one section off the center, are for regular-season games and do not include the playoffs. The Lakers preseason tickets, now on sale, have doubled in price to $ 550 plus fees.

LEBRON JAMES’ BIG ECONOMIC IMPACT:

A 2017 study published by the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) quantified the effects that the 33-year-old forward had in Cleveland with the Cavaliers and his brief stint in Miami when he played for the Heat from 2011 to 2014.

By playing in both cities, the data showed that James’ presence had a huge impact on their local economies by boosting restaurant revenues, ticket sales, and job creation. The number of eateries and bars within the mile of the stadium where he played at the time increased by 13%, with employment within those establishments increasing by 23.5%. While, on the other hand, those numbers dropped when James was not on either team.

Earlier in the year, BLACK ENTERPRISE took a look at the cities that would benefit the most if King James joined their NBA team through a study conducted by FormSwift. Had James joined the Knicks, he would have an estimated $ 1.7 billion economic impact on the city, bringing the state $ 1.2 million in tax revenue and over 12,000 new jobs over a five-year period. In comparison, if the NBA star signed with the Brooklyn Nets, the state’s economy would receive about $ 441 million, 3,334 jobs, and $ 32 million in state tax revenue. Had he moved to Washington, D.C., he would bring the nation’s capital over $ 66 million in state tax revenue, 3,200 jobs, and more than $ 444 million in total local economic impact in five years.

According to the report, his presence in Los Angeles will have a $ 396 million economic impact on the city. In addition, the city will gain about 3,000 jobs and $ 29 million in state tax revenue.

BUILDING A BILLION-DOLLAR BRAND

James could have stayed home and signed an even bigger deal worth around $ 205 million with the Cavaliers but his move to Los Angeles opens up business opportunities that “could propel him to even bigger global superstar status if he can return the purple-and-gold to NBA title contention.”

“It’s my biggest milestone. Obviously. I want to maximize my business,” said James. “And if I happen to get it, if I happen to be a billion-dollar athlete, ho. Hip hip hooray! Oh, my God, I’m gonna be excited,” James said in a GQ cover story four years ago. His new deal with the Lakers, according to Forbes, brings him closer to becoming a billion-dollar athlete.

As of two years ago, James’ net worth, according to Forbes, was $ 275 million, but “James has banked another $ 170 million, including endorsements, since then, and the stock market continues to move higher.” In total, he has made an estimated $ 765 million, including off-court earnings, since he entered the NBA in 2003. At 33, his endorsements are the best in the NBA at more than $ 50 million annually through deals with Nike, Coca-Cola, Beats, Kia, Intel, and Blaze Pizza per Forbes. He is also an investor and franchisee in Blaze. Stephen Curry is the only hoops star within $ 20 million of James off the court, and James’ total earnings are likely to approach $ 400 million during his four years in L.A., according to the article.

LeBron James Is Leaving Cleveland and Taking His Talents to Los Angeles

Sorry Cavs fans, LeBron James is on the move once again.

Bringing an end to months (and for some fans, years) of speculation, James announced through his agent on Sunday that he is ending his second stint as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers to join the Los Angeles Lakers for the upcoming NBA season.

“LeBron James, four time NBA MVP, three time NBA finals MVP, fourteen time NBA All Star, and two time Olympic gold medalist has agreed to a four year, $ 154 million contract with the Los Angeles Lakers,” reads a press release tweeted by Klutch Sports Group, James’ agency, on Sunday.

It was widely thought that James, who turns 34 in December, would choose a team as a free agent. Doing so would not only give the athlete a chance at a ninth NBA finals appearance, but would likely lead him to another match-up against back-to-back NBA champions the Golden State Warriors.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

(The warriors have faced James four consecutive times for the Larry O’Brien trophy, winning three of the match-ups.)

But James’ decision wasn’t cut-and-dry from the start, as several teams — barring some trades or free agency signings — were in solid position to sign the star, including the Philadelphia 76ers, Boston Celtics, Houston Rockets, Los Angeles Clippers and the Cavaliers.

Since the 2018 NBA Finals ended in an embarrassing sweep of the Cavaliers by the Warriors, James has said that his next move would come down to what he felt was best for his children — Bryce Maximus James, 10, LeBron James Jr., 13, and Zhuri James, 3 — and his wife, Savannah Brinson.

Although James has kept mum about any preferences, that hasn’t stopped NBA analysts and fans from speculating where he’d end up. Discussions about which team is the favorite to land the superstar have changed from week to week.

RELATED‘Worst Play in NBA Finals History?’ Twitter (and LeBron James) React to JR Smith’s Epic Fail

Initially, many believed that James would switch conferences from the East to the West to sign with the Rockets, joining all-stars Chris Paul and James Harden. The Rockets held a 3-2 series lead over the Warriors in the Western Conference Finals before Paul suffered a hamstring injury, which allowed the Warriors to take the series in seven games.

The Sixers also seemed to be a good fit, as James would likely be able to reach the finals once again with young stars like Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.

But the tide appeared to turn in the Lakers’ favor in early June when NBA legend Gary Payton said in an interview that LeBron James Jr. had signed up to attend an LA-area school for eighth grade.

Then, Kawhi Leonard of the San Antonio Spurs allegedly demanded a trade, saying he preferred to be sent to the Lakers for the upcoming season, according to ESPN. This fueled rumors that James, Leonard, and free agent Paul George of the Oklahoma City Thunder were planning to create a super team in Los Angeles to rival the Warriors. George signed a contract with Oklahoma City as soon as free agency began.

Because Leonard cannot opt out of his contract until next summer, he hasn’t had much say in where he’ll go. And the Spurs have been reluctant to trade their best player to another team in the Western Conference. Still, without another big-time player heading to the LA team, many were unsure whether James would pick the Lakers after all.

Now that he has made his choice known, the rest of the NBA can plan their next moves.

RELATEDLeBron James Explains New Pair of ‘Equality’ Shoes

This isn’t the first time James has sent shockwaves through the NBA as a free agent.

In a controversial move, now known as “The Decision,” James took to ESPN for a televised interview in 2010 where he announced he was leaving Cleveland and “taking talents to South Beach” to join Dwyane Wade and the Miami Heat.

Many criticized James’ decision and denounced the dramatic announcement. Thus, the phrase “taking my talents” quickly became a meme. At the start of his first season in Miami, James expressed slight regret about how he went about breaking the news.

“If I had to go back on it, I probably would do it a little bit different”, James told the New York Times. “But I’m happy with my decision.”

He would go on to win two consecutive championships with the Heat in 2012 and 2013.

But James would surprise the basketball world once again in 2014 when he announced that he was rejoining the Cavaliers in a Sports Illustrated article titled “I’m Coming Home.” This time, the announcement was well-received by many (except Heat fans, of course).

Though James — who was born a short ways from Cleveland in Akron, Ohio — is leaving the team once again, during his four years back, he helped to give something to the city they never had before: an NBA championship.

Along with point guard Kyrie Irving, James led the Cavs to a thrilling Game 7 victory over the Warriors in the 2016 NBA Finals. It was the first professional sports title for Cleveland in over half-a-century, and, though his time with the team is over (for now?), for the city, those memories will certainly last a lifetime.

Bravo’s ‘Top Chef’ Stars Celebrate Juneteenth at the James Beard House

Each year, the James Beard House hosts over 200 dinners featuring select world-class chefs who prepare unique tasting menus for guests. However, on Monday, four famed African American cooks from Bravo’s hit reality competition series Top Chef took over the esteemed Beard House kitchen for an unprecedented Juneteenth celebration that honored African American food and culture.

The private dinner was held in New York City at The James Beard Foundation, a nonprofit culinary arts organization named in honor of prolific food writer and cookbook author James Beard, a.k.a. the “Dean of American Cookery.” It was dedicated to the observance of the Juneteenth Independence Day, a nationally recognized holiday that marked the end of slavery for African Americans in Texas and other parts of the South on June 19, 1865. Although slaves were legally free after President Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863, it took two years before the news traveled to all parts of the country. As a result, African American slaves were still working on plantations as late as 1865, while 250,000 people were still enslaved in Texas until Union soldiers traveled to Galveston, Texas, to announce that all enslaved people were free.

At the dinner, the chefs presented a collaborative menu inspired by black southern cuisine and their own roots. In addition to paying homage to his ancestors, Chef Chris Scott said the event allowed him to tell “a story of our people through food.” Some of the dishes he made included hoecakes, which date back to the 18th century, and scrapple, a dish that his grandmother used to make consisting of hog offal. However, it was his grandmother’s famous honey butter biscuits that won the night. “In a million years, my grandmother would have never thought that her biscuits would be served at the Beard House on this kind of night,” he told guests following the dinner.

“A lot of chefs are turning back to their roots, especially black folks,” Scott told Black Enterprise in an interview. “All of us are classically trained in French style, Spanish cuisine, and a lot of European cooking methods, but now we’ve come to a point where we’re turning the curve and we’re coming back home, cooking the food of our ancestors, cooking the food that we grew up on.”

Chef Adrienne Cheatham told BE that cooking Juneteenth-inspired dishes at the prestigious James Beard House was an honor that affirms that soul food deserves the same recognition as other acclaimed fares around the world. “James Beard House is acknowledging Juneteenth. That’s a holiday that has been big among black people for years, but it’s never been recognized by a major institution,” said the Top Chef season 15 runner-up.

Chef Brother Luck, the owner of Four By Brother Luck in Colorado, called the Juneteenth dinner a celebration of diversity. “As someone who’s worked my way up from the bottom, it’s really special to be here tonight.” He also touched on his own Cajun and Creole heritage, saying, “If you look at southern cuisine and Cajun and Creole soul food, it was about making the best of what you had and adapting.”

‘No One Wants the Invite Anyway.’ LeBron James and Steph Curry Say Their Teams Won’t Visit White House

(CLEVELAND) — Stephen Curry and LeBron James spoke their minds last year. They have not changed their minds this year.

No matter whose team wins the NBA championship, neither superstar will be at the White House anytime soon.

On the day when the Philadelphia Eagles were supposed to be there to commemorate winning the Super Bowl — a visit that was canceled by President Donald Trump and had the White House accusing players who weren’t planning on attending of abandoning their fans — Curry and James were among those speaking out at the NBA Finals in support of the Eagles.

“I’m not surprised. It’s typical of him,” James, the Cleveland star, said of Trump’s decision to cancel. “I know no matter who wins this series, no one wants the invite anyway. So it won’t be Golden State or Cleveland going.”

On the eve of Game 3 of the Warriors-Cavaliers series, politics dominated the conversation.

Curry raised Trump’s ire last year when he said he wouldn’t go to the White House, prompting the President to disinvite him and the champion Golden State Warriors.

Curry said Tuesday that he spoke with a current Eagles player about the team’s decision-making process and how it went deeper than disagreeing with Trump policies and the ongoing issue of some NFL players choosing not to stand for the pregame playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

“It’s an important conversation, but you can’t control what other people try to do, or try to control the narrative or things like that,” Curry said.

Curry said the team has been on the same page after his comments last year and Trump’s subsequent revoking of the Warriors’ invitation. “And every team that’s won a championship since then has gone through that.”

There has been clear tension between many star athletes and the current administration throughout the Trump presidency. Trump has often blasted the NFL players who have kneeled for the national anthem, a protest that started in 2016 when San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick did so to protest racism and more specifically the killing of black men by police.

Trump said the Eagles’ event was called off because some of their players “disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.”

No Eagles players kneeled during the anthem last season.

“Instead the decision was made to lie, and paint the picture that these players are anti-America, anti-flag and anti-military,” the Eagles’ Malcolm Jenkins wrote in a statement posted to social media Tuesday .

The WNBA champion Minnesota Lynx haven’t been invited to celebrate their most recent title, something James called “laughable.” Villanova, the reigning NCAA men’s champion, has not revealed if an invitation was sent. Many members of the U.S. Olympic Team that competed earlier this year in South Korea did not attend a White House reception.

Hockey’s Pittsburgh Penguins and baseball’s Houston Astros have accepted invitations to the White House for the traditional meeting with the President in recent months, as have several college teams. When the New England Patriots went last year, half the team chose not to attend.

The Warriors, in lieu of going to the White House, spent that day taking a group of children to the National Museum of African American History and Culture a few miles away.

“I think the President has made it pretty clear he’s going to try to divide us, all of us in this country, for political gain,” said Golden State coach Steve Kerr, who has often criticized Trump and his policies. “So it’s just the way it is. I think we all look forward to the day when we can go back to just having a celebration of athletic achievement and celebrate Americans for their achievement, their good deeds.”

Kerr also lauded the Eagles for being what he called “fantastic citizens in their own community.”

“It will be nice when we can just get back to normal in three years,” Kerr said.

The overwhelming issue surrounding the Eagles’ planned visit was that most of the team was not going to attend, and that was a major factor in Trump deciding to pull the invitation.

“What else do you expect Trump to do?” Golden State’s Kevin Durant said. “When somebody says they don’t want to come to the White House, he disinvites them. So the photo op don’t look bad. We get it at this point. But it’s good that guys are sticking to what they believe in and what they want to do. Like guys said before me, I’m sure whoever wins this series won’t be going.”

James Clapper: Kim Jong Un Is a God in North Korea

Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast

That December [1984] the Air Force published the names of those nominated for promotion to brigadier general, and I was on the list. I was shocked. My parents and family were very proud, and Sue and Andy got ready to move again. I anticipated returning to the Pentagon as the deputy to the Air Force assistant chief of staff for intelligence, since that position was vacant, but then we got a second surprise: The Air Force was assigning me to be chief of intelligence for US forces in South Korea. My first thought was an old saying I’d heard from my dad: “There are four things in life you want to avoid: pyorrhea, diarrhea, gonorrhea, and Korea,” but I learned just how little influence brigadier general selects have over their destinies.

I reported to Seoul in June 1985 and quickly discovered the obvious— although the position in South Korea was designated for an Air Force officer, it was a job much better suited to an Army officer. It was a humbling experience as a new brigadier general to ask my team of Army colonels to mentor me on things like how to properly roll up the sleeves on my camouflage battle dress uniform. They also helped with Army slang and terminology used around the post, where initially I was almost as lost as I had been when I first reported to Tan Son Nhut Air Base as a lieutenant. I found that I was not just the senior intelligence officer for US forces, but also the deputy to a Korean Air Force two-star in the US–South Korea Combined Forces Command, someone who knew very little about intelligence and was looking to me for guidance. Fortunately, both of the Republic of Korea (ROK) generals whom I served as deputy were capable, smart, and easy to work with, and we eventually found our way.

My “big boss,” Commander of US Forces Korea, Army four-star general Bill Livsey, had been a lieutenant platoon leader with the 3rd Infantry Division during the Korean War and dug in on the front line when the armistice took effect on July 27, 1953. He knew his business and suffered no fools. He was salty, and in the tradition of General George Patton, excelled at colorful profanity when the occasion called for it. On day one, he made it very clear that the Korean War had never formally ended, the 1953 armistice was just a cease-fire agreement, and North Korea could, and would, invade the South if given the opportunity. From that premise, he gave me his very clear expectations for intelligence. He demanded forty-eight hours of warning ahead of a North Korean attack to give him time to activate the operations plan for the defense of the peninsula and to evacuate all US dependents in South Korea. And because taking those irrevocable actions would have huge diplomatic consequences for the United States and major political implications for the ROK, Livsey required a forty-eight-hour “unambiguous” warning—we had to know for certain that an attack was imminent, and not a bluff or a feint. General Livsey was not one for subtle nuance.

The James Beard Awards Rising Star Chef Nominees Answer Burning Food Questions

The James Beard Awards, considered to be the Oscars of the food world, took place on Monday night during a star-studded gala hosted by Carla Hall. The prestigious awards include a category known as Rising Star Chef, which aims to honor a chef under 30 who “displays an impressive talent and who is likely to make a significant impact on the industry in years to come.”

Camille Cogswell took home the award presented by S.Pellegrino (she’s only the second pastry chef to claim the title!)—but all of the nominees are likely to become household names in the restaurant business. Read on to meet the new faces in food.

Camille Cogswell (Zahav, Philadelphia)

What’s your go-to fast food order?
I really love all kinds of fast food, but, whenever I make it back down south, because I’m from North Carolina, I go to Bojangles’ and get the spicy Cajun chicken on a biscuit, with bo-berry biscuits and a three-piece.

When was the last time you were starstruck?
The last time I was starstruck was when I met Sean Brock, which was incredible, because he is a huge influence and a huge celebrity, and just an incredible chef. He is on that pedestal of chefs that I have watched for a long time and looked up to. So that was really cool. At the time, I had nothing to say. I was like just nervously, awkwardly laughing at anything he said, and just had nothing interesting to add to the conversation. And he’s not particularly a chatty person, so I was just standing there, hoping I looked cool.

As a pastry chef, how do you feel about the trendy, over-the-top desserts?
We’re in the business of serving people what they want to eat, and everybody’s take on that is different. I don’t necessarily want to do those things, that’s not my style—but I’m not going to hate on people for eating it if that’s what they think is cool and they want to eat it. It’s excessive and I don’t want to make that stuff or eat it, but more power to you if you do.

Who’s your celebrity chef crush?
Dominique Crenn. Her food is beautiful. She’s so thoughtful. She is beautiful and just seems so sweet and vibrant and fun.

RELATED: See the Chefs and Stars Celebrate the James Beard Awards in PEOPLE + S.Pellegrino’s Exclusive Photo Series

Clare de Boer (King, NYC)

The menu at your restaurant changes daily, but do you have a favorite dish you cook often?
I absolutely adore fish stew, in all of it’s myriad forms. Throughout the seasons I really love a beautiful fumet with whatever’s been caught that day. When we first opened we had that on the menu every night for the first two weeks as we found our footing, and it definitely helped get us off the ground.

When you’re home, what do you cook for dinner?
I never cook. I’m at the restaurant most of the time, and when I am not there I do not cook. Cooking at home isn’t particularly pleasurable in New York City. I have a crap stove, and the only thing I have in my fridge is Coleman’s mustard. I basically exclusively eat Chinese, Vietnamese, and Korean food when I’m not at King. I really think some of the best food here is Asian. There’s such incredible, incredible stuff in Flushing and in Chinatown, and I really just enjoy eating something that tastes totally different.

Is there one food you can’t stand?
Raw bell peppers are on my never-ever list. I think bell peppers are so extraordinary when they’re cooked properly, but raw, I find them entirely inedible.

What’s the one kitchen tool you can’t live without?
A pestle and mortar. I use it for absolutely everything, from sauces to purees. The only piece of equipment I would need is that.

Kevin Tien (Himitsu, Washington, D.C.)

What’s your favorite ingredient to cook with?
I like all vegetables. It’s not one particular ingredient, but I really like going with what’s special each season, because growing up I never appreciated vegetables like any kid probably should appreciate it. I’m really taking the time to appreciate it now. Growing up, we always ate a lot of McDonald’s. I still kind of eat a lot of McDonald’s actually. It’s almost kind of disgusting how much McDonald’s I eat for a week.

What’s your McDonald’s order?
I always get a chicken sandwich. I always get some sort of burger that has multiple patties, a large fries, and I always get a minimum of 10 to 20 chicken nuggets. As a chef, after a long day of work, I think most of us just want something quick. It’s something that’s very comforting.

What’s your favorite cooking show?
When I do have time, I like to watch a lot of Iron Chef because the first cooking show I was ever really interested in was the old school Japanese Iron Chef. Then up growing up in Louisiana I also watched a lot of Emeril Lagasse. I think he’s one of the coolest guys ever.

Are there any food trends that you’d like to see end?
Oh man there’s so many. Any form of trying to turn sushi into something that’s not sushi, like a sushi burger, or sushi pizza. I think really bad poke can die too.

Sarah Rinkavage (Marisol, Chicago)

What’s one piece of advice you’d give to aspiring chefs?
I would tell them to really find a place that you love and a path that you want to take and really stick with it. Don’t give up. I think I spent seven years at one restaurant, which sounds like a lot for people in our industry, but had I veered off that path, I wouldn’t be where I was today. I think just to really stick with it for a while when you know it’s the right thing. Don’t question it.

What’s your favorite cookbook?
The cookbook that I always go back to is Relae. It’s a restaurant in Copenhagen. I actually lived out there two years ago for a month. I just really like their style and what they do with ingredients. The pictures are beautiful and half the book is about inspiration and technique. Then the other half shows the recipes. I always go back to that one.

What do you eat if you’re indulging?
A good grilled cheese is definitely something I would always go for and still do if I’m out for lunch. And tomato soup. Anything that’s bready—bready, cheesy things are definitely an indulgence. I don’t have much of a sweet tooth.

Is a hot dog a sandwich?
No. I just feel like anything on a bun—like I wouldn’t call a lobster roll a sandwich or a hot dog a sandwich. I don’t know if it’s just because the two sides of the bread are not on top and bottom.

Miles Thompson (Michael’s, Santa Monica)

What’s the one cooking tip you give to novice cooks?
Well if it comes to cooking meat on the grill, I’d say to rub it in kewpie mayonnaise before you grill it and brush it with fish sauce after it comes off. It brings out a lot of the robustness and dimensionality of the meat while making it extra savory and interesting. And if it comes to cooking vegetables, then I typically say treat it as little as possible but shop for the best thing that you possibly can find and afford.

What’s your favorite restaurant in Los Angeles besides Michael’s?
That’s very hard. Can I give you like 10? If I have to give one, it’s really the one that I like go to most, called Ruen Pair. It’s a Thai restaurant in Thai Town in Hollywood. I love it because it’s unbelievably consistent. It’s open until 3:00 am and it’s incredibly delicious. My go-to order is Chinese sausage fried rice with pineapple. Recently I’ve been getting a spicy pork salad and then the sausage, turnip, and egg bake, which is basically an overcooked omelet that’s delicious.

What’s you favorite flavor of ice cream?
Coffee, hands down.

What is your stance on airplane food?
I will always eat food on an airplane because I’m always hungry. That’s my real answer. I’m not a snob about it. I think that it’s gotten better. I’ve had some like actually really good airplane meals on Chinese airlines flying to Canada. So there’s hope yet.

James Comey’s New Book Is Already Outpacing Michael Wolff’s ‘Fire and Fury’—By At Least One Measure

Interest in James Comey’s upcoming book is through the roof, and President Donald Trump’s blistering Twitter attacks against his former FBI directly this past week likely are only stoking anticipation for the memoir.

Comey’s A Higher Loyalty: Truth, Lies and Leadership, which will be released on Tuesday, is already due to be one of the biggest political books of the year.

Macmillan, the book’s publisher, has ordered 850,000 copies to meet the expected demand. To compare, Michael Wolff’s sleeper hit Fire and Fury‘s first print run was only 150,000 copies. Macmillan president Don Weisberg told CNNMoney that A Higher Loyalty is the largest first printing the publishing house has done so far this year.

And if the success of Fire and Fury–and the preorder numbers for A Higher Loyalty–are any indication, Comey’s book will be a bestseller. Since its first print, more than two million copies of Fire and Fury have been sold. For its part, A Higher Loyalty has already pre-sold close to 200,000 copies and is at the top of Amazon’s best sellers list.

AllianceBernstein Promotes James Thompson To Focus on Wealthy Multicultural Investors

James Thompson has been appointed the head of Diverse Markets Strategy, a newly created role at Bernstein Private Wealth Management.

A unit of AllianceBernstein L.P., Bernstein Private Wealth Management created the role dedicated to diversity, inclusion, and the multicultural marketplace and Thompson will lead the company’s efforts in developing relationships with multicultural high-net-worth individuals and their families, business owners, institutions, and not-for-profit organizations, and provide them access to Bernstein’s research and investment planning expertise.

“We believe strongly that this role presents us a significant opportunity to attract and better serve investors in this fast-growing segment of the market,” said Joel Stevens, senior managing director at Bernstein in a press release. “We’re thrilled to partner with diverse accountants, attorneys, consultants and investment bankers to introduce Bernstein’s services to a broader opportunity set of clientele as well as to enhance our ability to attract and develop diverse talent.”

Prior to this role, Thompson led business development, marketing strategy, and program execution for AllianceBernstein’s global insurance arm. Before that, he led the firm’s North America institutional and insurance services divisions. Thompson has also held several distinct leadership roles to promote the professional development of diverse talent internally across the firm.

He worked with external organizations focused on diversity and inclusion, which includes partnerships with historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), to recruit from diverse groups throughout the U.S.

Thompson graduated Temple University’s Fox School of Business with a double degree in Marketing and Human Resources Administration in 1998. He worked as an investor services representative and shareholders communications manager for SEI Investments before joining ING Annuities in 2004. Thompson became the vice president of Third Party Distribution and Annuities Marketing in 2006. He was promoted to Head of the company’s marketing solutions in 2011. Thompson moved to AllianceBernstein the same year to become its director of Institutional and Insurance Services Marketing in North America. He moved up the ranks at AllianceBernstein to become its VP of Diverse Markets Business Development.

Since 2014, he has chaired Winning In Sports and Education (W.I.S.E), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to the enrichment and development of youth through education and sports, and has served as treasurer and executive committee member of Dignity Housing since 2011.

Comedian James Adomian: SNL Has a Problem With Casting Gay Men

Photo Ilustration by Sarah Rogers/The Daily Beast

AUSTIN, Texas—James Adomian is perhaps the greatest political impressionist working in comedy today. Just this week at South by Southwest, he performed as Bernie Sanders, Sebastian Gorka, Elon Musk, Alex Jones, Chris Matthews, and Ted Cruz (who he voices to hilarious effect on Our Cartoon President) at various shows around Austin.

During his own solo stand-up set Monday night, he did all of those characters along with Paul Giamatti, shock jock Tom Leykis and, for good measure, Donald Trump.

But Adomian, a regular presence on podcasts like Comedy Bang! Bang! and Chapo Trap House, has never been on Saturday Night Live. He doesn’t have his own late-night show. And there’s a good chance you’ve never even heard of him.

Weekday Wardrobe: Aurora James Knows Good Shoes

“I have a couple hundred pairs of shoes,” a claim that most fashion fans dream of one day sharing, is just another part of the life and work of Aurora James. As the founder and creative director of Brother Vellies, James not only has an enviable footwear collection but actually designs many of the shoes herself. Her initial inspiration, she notes, came after traveling through Africa. “I met a lot of artisans along the way and wanted to find a way to keep them employed,” she says, “so I began creating collections that utilized their unique skills.”

Since starting the company in 2013, James has earned the notice of peers, editors, and industry insiders alike. She won the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund in 2015 and is currently a member of the CFDA Fashion Incubator, but it still feels like James and Brother Vellies are just getting started, like there’s much more ahead.

As for any woman who owns and runs her own business, James has no defined 9-to-5 schedule, no two days are alike, and there’s a certain unavoidable blurring of personal and work life that occurs. Luckily, James’s sense of style lends itself to a world constantly in flux. “I don’t see a difference between on- and off-duty style,” she says. “I think there is so much about Brother Vellies that I have rooted in my own actual lifestyle that everything sort of blends.”

Of course, it’s impossible to work in the fashion industry without being acutely aware of the way women choose (and want) to dress. For James, this proximity has come to inform both her own way of dressing and her design choices. “I am more interested in personal style than trends and more interested in shoes you will own for a lifetime instead of just one season,” she notes, adding that working in the industry has encouraged her to build her own closet slowly instead of shopping fast fashion. “The best dressed people in the industry,” she says, “are those who are very aware of their own style and build on that.”

There’s a common thread between the way James dresses every day and the shoes and bags she creates for others. When asked to describe her personal style, James offers a response that could easily carry over as a descriptor of the Brother Vellies aesthetic. She views how she dresses as a reflection of how she sees the world: “romantic and whimsical and bold and full of texture and color.” Read on to see James’s weekday wardrobe in full.

“I wear a lot of long dresses with our Unity boots. It’s a bit of a ‘pretty punk’ vibe, I guess. But more so, it’s just comfortable and girly, which is an ongoing theme with a lot of how I dress and design.” While Mondays may qualify as a stressful, uninspired day for many, James uses the start of the week as an opportunity to make a statement. Pairing unexpected pieces like a flowy maxi dress with rough-and-tumble boots starts things off on a fresh foot.

Working in a creative industry has allowed her to build a fairly fluid wardrobe, and her footwear designs reflect the same flexibility. Her boots could just as easily be worn with jeans as they could with a bohemian dress, and other styles follow the same rule. “The Holiday Bow Pump is really great for the office with a linen or navy pinstripe or polka dot dress,” she notes. “On the weekends, though, you could pair it with athletic socks, jeans, and a sweatshirt. I like shoes that have a duality to them like that.”

Winter in New York can leave even the boldest dresser uninspired, but the Toronto native manages to bring texture and a sense of playfulness into her wardrobe even on a practically frigid shoot day. “I have had these plaid McQueen pants for six years,” she notes about her Tuesday outfit. “I love wool pants in the winter; they’re the best way to stay warm. A shearling crossbody is like a little heater also. This is definitely a very winter look.”

James has a unique ability to take her shoes, in this case denim loafers with crystal embellishments, and build an outfit around them that is unexpected but inspired. The key takeaway: Don’t be afraid to mix and match the standout styles you love.

While it’s not uncommon for James to travel for work—“Los Angeles, Paris, Morocco, Italy, and Ethiopia are the typical destinations”—when she’s working in NYC, jeans are in heavy rotation. “You can usually find me in jeans a vintage shirt at least three times a week,” she says.

But James has a knack for knowing how to pair casual and more formal pieces together in a way that feels neither sloppy nor stuffy. “You have to take luxe and pare it down sometimes. These Black Palms Pumps have been glued to my feet since the day I designed them,” she says. Styled with eye-catching shoes, jeans are anything but average.

If there’s anything close to a uniform in James’s closet, her Thursday look would be it. “This is my basic go-to for years,” she says, “an easy skirt with a statement shoe and bag with some vintage on top.” The addition of more trend-forward accessories, like a leather beret and statement earrings, give even the most worn items an instant refresh.

Notes James, “I always start with the accessories and build from there. What shoes do I want to wear today? If you have great accessories, they will completely transform jeans and a white T-shirt even. The world is your oyster with a Palms Pump and Beret!”

While James notes that athleisure is the one thing she’d never wear while working, some sporty elements have become staples. “My boyfriend works with athletes, so I have this weird habit of integrating gratuitous sportswear into my outfits,” she says. But, despite her ability to easily pull off a jersey, you probably won’t catch her watching a game on the weekends. “I’m that girl on the street that gives a blank, confused look when someone says something like ‘I love the Chicago Bulls’ and I’ve totally forgotten A) what that is and B) that I’m wearing a Chicago Bulls vintage T-shirt.”

While James has already seen success as a businesswoman in the fashion industry, she notes that she’s looking to the future, not her past accomplishments. “I get inspired by thinking about different things women will do and accomplish while wearing Brother Vellies—running for office, being a mom, just kicking butt in general,” she says.

If her own trajectory is any evidence, Brother Vellies’s shoes aren’t simply made for walking, sitting, or even dancing—they’re made to change the world.

‘Vanderpump Rules’ Recap: James Confesses Love For Lala, Slams Boyfriend

James Kennedy made no secret of his feelings toward Lala Kent’s relationship to producer Randall Emmett on the Monday, February 19, episode of Vanderpump Rules. The 26-year-old DJ repeatedly slammed the beauty entrepreneur’s relationship while on a boozy group trip to Rob Valletta’s lake house in Big Bear, California.

Lala made a point to corner James’ girlfriend, Raquel Leviss, while on the trip, telling her, “James just said something about my man. Normally if somebody else said that, we would have a lot of problems.” She then added, “You’ve gotta keep him in check.”

James Body Shames Randall Emmett, Calls Him ‘Big Fat Rolls Royce’

James justified his continual bashing of the two year relationship in a testimonial saying, “The only time she talks about him to me is when she’s complaining.” James clarified his remarks to his girlfriend raquel saying, “I throw things in her face that she knows are true. I call him ‘Big fat man,’ ‘Big fat Rolls Royce.’”

James continued slamming her relationship with 46-year-old Randall saying. “Lala’s walking around thinking she’s better than other people. You can’t blame her because with her boyfriend comes the high life, but without it the Range Rover’s not there, the Chanel’s not there, and the private jet’s not there,”he said. With friends like James, who needs enemies?

James and Lala, who’ve admitted to sleeping with each other in the past, sat down to discuss his behavior. Lala wept openly while pleading for James to stop “coming for” her. James then honestly admitted, “I have a negative view on that man because he put the one that I love in jeopardy.” He then dropped a bombshell, saying, “I’ve loved you.” Lala later told the cameras, “James thinks that he’s losing me to my relationship, but it’s OK for him to have a girlfriend and it’s OK for me to have a boyfriend.”

The episode ended without James offering any form of apology to Lala.

Vanderpump Rules airs on Bravo Mondays at 9 p.m. ET.
