‘Lost Child’ Star Leven Rambin Says She Doesn’t Care About ‘Being Likable’

When actress Leven Rambin and director Ramaa Mosley say their film, “Lost Child,” was a passion project, they don’t mean it lightly. It’s been a struggle, from getting financing and distribution, to the filming process, which involved trekking through Ozark forests and mud in the punishing summer heat. It was only through the “willpower and […]

You’ll want to get lost in these mysterious forests

ADVERTISEMENT


There is nothing like a walk through the woods. Birds chirp, the air feels cleaner, and the way that the sun filters through the trees and the leaves is simply divine. Forests have this sublime magical quality about them, and you can feel the magic within flowing out of the ground. That must be the reason that they are so relaxing to walk through! However, not all forests are created equally, with some garnering much more attention than others due to their unique flora and fauna. Here are five incredibly beautiful forests which will take your breath away.

Tsingy de Bemaraha National Park, Madagascar

This forest, located on the Western side of the African island of Madagascar, not only has beautiful jungles replete with lemurs, lizards, and hawks, but also is home to a unique geological formation. Called “Tsingy” (meaning “the place where one can not walk barefoot” in the local Malagasy language), these are giant limestone hills which have been eroded by the wind and the rain so much that the hills are now razor sharp! Because of this, it is nearly impossible to walk there except with special equipment. However, because there are so few humans in the area, the park has seen an explosion in bird and lemur populations!

Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, Costa Rica

This forest is one of the last remaining virgin rainforests in the world. First settled as recently as the 1970’s, the Costa Rican government knew that they had to preserve it for future generations, and to keep the 70,000 tourists who visit the forest every year happy. And happy they are. With over 500 animal species and 2,500 plant species, the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve is one of the most bio-diverse placed on the planet. This is helped by the fact that the reserve is actually a cloud forest, meaning that there is some level of cloud cover all day every day across the canopy. If you want to go see this forest, the best way to see it isn’t to hike through it, but to zip line over it!

Hoosier National Forest, Indiana

Designated a national forest back in 1935, this forest has seen 12,000 years of human habitation. The Hoosier National Forest is relatively unknown as it is located in the rolling hills of southern Indiana, but that just makes it all the more intimate. With a collection of hickory, oak, buckeye, and sycamore trees, as well as the fact that so few people go there, this quintessential American forest is one of the nicest and most preserved in the entire nation.

Comprising over 260 miles of hiking paths, creeks, and streams, this immense park is not only easily accessible at any time, it is also completely free to enter.

Dragon’s blood forest, Socotra

Located on the Yemeni island of Socotra, this forest, just like everything else on the island, looks like it came from outer space. The trees which make up this forest are called dragon’s blood trees due to the red sap which comes out of them when the bark is cut.

Due to the fact that these trees are located on a desert island off the coast of the Arabian Peninsula, it’s really nice that these trees are able to provide so much shade. They have an almost umbrella like appearance, with a huge head of leaves at the top being supported by a strong system of branches at the bottom.

Crooked Forest, Poland

Located close to the German border on the Polish side lies the Crooked Forest. And the forest definitely deserves its name. Comprised of several acres, it is not this forest’s size which makes it so compelling.

Instead, it is in fact the strange shape of the trees in the forest. Every single tree is crooked and bent near its base, and nobody’s quite sure how or why. But one thing is for certain – it was done by man. Some prevailing theories are the German tanks bent the saplings in World War Two, or that they were curved in order to be used for wood to build boats.

Families Struggle 3 Years After Florida Teens Lost at Sea: ‘There Is No Healing Process’

Unending mourning, ongoing legal battles and bittersweet celebration mark the third anniversary this week of the disappearance of two Florida teenagers into the Atlantic waters off Jupiter Inlet. On the morning of July 24, 2015, longtime friends Austin Stephanos and Perry Cohen boarded Austin’s 19-foot 1978 SeaCraft and set out for a fishing excursion, but never returned.

“It’s so hard to put into words,” Austin’s father, Blu Stephanos, told PEOPLE. “Losing a child is the most unnatural thing that can happen and we’re doing the best we can. There is no healing process.”

Perry’s mother, Pamela Cohen, shares a similar sentiment.

“For three years, I’ve put my head on the pillow each night, thinking of him and praying that this wasn’t real,” said Pamela. “I used to dream about what he would be like as a man. I was robbed of that.”

On Tuesday, the anniversary of the boys’ disappearance, family and friends of Perry held a small candlelight vigil at a private beach on the north side of 400-foot-wide Jupiter Inlet, near the spot where he and Austin were last seen motoring into the waters.

“Our family and close circle of friends gathered, lit candles, hugged each other and prayed for both boys,” Pamela said.

By all reasonable accounts, the sea stole from both families that day. Just two hours after a final text from Austin to Blu and his mother, Carly Black — “What’s up? I am checking in. I’m just out here fishing,” it read — a fierce storm ripped through the area. By nightfall, a massive air, sea and land search by multiple law enforcement, search and rescue agencies, as well as hundreds of volunteers, garnered worldwide attention, but ultimately would turn up no trace of the boys.

An investigative report from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement released last year cites analysis by Gainesville’s Six Maritime concluding that Perry and Austin most likely remained together until they died off the coast of northern Georgia.

In the three years since their sons vanished, the boys’ families have sought answers as to exactly what led up to the boys’ disappearance and whether the tragedy could have been avoided. Sadly, the quest for answers also has forged a rift between them.

WATCH: Critical Clues That You Need to Know About Florida Teens Missing at Sea

Central to the ongoing legal battle is cell phone communication between Austin and his family and friends in the days just before and during the boys’ fishing trip. The most recent revised complaint in a case filed by Pamela last July requests that text and other data from both Austin’s and Blu’s cell phones be shared.

Pamela and her attorneys assert that data may prove that Austin’s parents were aware the boys planned to fish for dolphin offshore and allowed it despite knowing that Perry was forbidden to travel offshore without an adult. Blu counters that he knew nothing of the boys’ plans that day and had never seen the boat, which Black had purchased for Austin just two months before.

“We don’t believe that, from a legal perspective, there is any case against Mr. Stephanos,” argues attorney Michael Pike, who, along with Dan Santaniello and Chris Moore, represents Blu. “This is a monumental tragedy. However, the law is designed to look past that and get the heart of liability. There’s a saying in the legal world that Lady Justice is blind and part of that is the ability for judges and juries to see past the emotional aspect of a case and determine whether or not there is actual liability. There is no liability that should or will attach to Mr. Stephanos and we believe that he was added wrongfully to the lawsuit as a defendant.”

When reached by PEOPLE, Black declined to comment.

“She’s saddened and she has periods of emotional anguish over the loss of the kids, like any mother would,” Black’s attorney, George Harris, said.

In any case, “We are not going to leave any avenue unchecked,” Cohen’s attorney Guy Rubin told PEOPLE. “That is Pamela’s right as the mother who entrusted her child to other parents and he never came home. That’s a very difficult position for anyone in this world to be in, to not only lose a child to but have questions go unanswered and to never have closure.”

Austin’s iPhone, recovered with the capsized boat found floating 100 miles off the Bermuda coast eight months after the boys’ disappearance, remains with Apple, Inc., where it was sent for forensic examination. Unfortunately, technicians were unable to power up or recover any data from the phone.

Today, Austin and Perry, both 14 when they vanished, would be 17, undoubtedly looking forward to their senior years in high school and all that this coming-of-age time typically entails — prom, graduation and plans for college and careers. Instead, their families manage to find some solace in running foundations they’ve each established in their sons’ names.

The Perry J. Cohen Foundation has served more than 1,000 underprivileged children via boating safety courses, sailing school and an environmental studies summer camp. Last year, the organization broke ground on the Perry J. Cohen Wetlands Laboratory at Jupiter High School, slated to open in May 2019 — the same time Perry would have graduated. And an endowment in Perry’s name will fund scholarships for students of the University of Miami’s Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science.

“Our lives now are about fulfilling Perry’s legacy,” Pamela said. “While he’s physically vanished, it’s impossible to let his spirit and who he was disappear.”

RELATED: Family of Missing Florida Teen Speaks Out for First Time Since Being Sued by Mother of Other Missing Boy: ‘Don’t We All Want the Truth?’ 

The AustinBlu Foundation also promotes boating safety and related legislation. The organization was key in securing passage of Florida’s Beacon Bill, which offers boater registration discounts for boats equipped with an emergency position indicating radio beacon (EPIRB), or whose owner has a personal locator beacon (PLB). Mikele D’Arcangelo, vice president of global marketing for ACR Electronics, says the legislation has driven sales of EPIRBs and PLBs by some 15 percent.

“Ever since that unfortunate day three years ago, when we go to trade shows, three of every five people we talk to bring up the boys to this day,” D’Arcangelo tells PEOPLE. Several have been survivors of boating mishaps who credit Austin and Perry’s loss with prompting them to better prepare. “We get to call Blu and Carly and say, ‘Thanks to all that hard work you’ve done, here’s a family that doesn’t have to go through what you did,’” adds D’Arcangelo.

“It’s bittersweet,” Blu admits. “But I know this is what Austin would want.”

Despite the families’ differences, “Two beautiful souls were lost that day,” Pamela says. “We never forget that.”

British Columbia road trip: the art of getting lost

This epic Canadian landscape is best enjoyed on a meandering, unplanned overland tour – in a Jeep with a bed on the roof
Plus four more overland adventures in Canada

The best road trips have few set plans. They’re about the thrill of discovery, of not knowing what comes next. Forget detailed itineraries that look like a shopping list. As Kerouac said: “There was nowhere to go but everywhere, so just keep rolling under the stars.” That’s my kind of road trip.

This is why I was so excited to find out about overlanding, defined as self-reliant adventure travel, usually in 4×4 vehicles, where the journey is as important as the highlights visited along the way, and the emphasis is on exploration and the freedom of the back roads. It’s been big in Africa for years, but a new company, Hastings Overland, has just launched the concept in western Canada.

England Lost in the World Cup and the ‘They’re Going Home’ Memes Are Here

Following England’s devastating loss to Croatia in the World Cup semi-final, Twitter was rife with jokes poking fun at the “It’s coming home” rallying cry of the English fan base.

With a little over 10 minutes to go in extra time of Wednesday’s match, Croatia’s Mario Mandzukic fired a shot into the back of the net to give his team a 2-1 lead over England. The English squad was unable to come up with an equalizer in the remaining time, officially ending their chances of reaching their first World Cup final since 1966.

But as if the loss itself wasn’t crushing enough, it was then that the “They’re going home” memes began to appear. Those rooting against England were all too quick to turn their fans’ cheer of “It’s coming home”—which has risen in popularity throughout the 2018 World Cup—into a taunt.

8 Superheroes Who Would Be Lost Without The Women in Their Lives

Scott Lang is lovable in spite of all of his flaws, but no one’s going to accuse the Ant-Man of having his life together any time soon. It’s a miracle that he can even tie his shoes without Hope van Dyne, but, lucky for Scott, she remains in his corner (mostly). Don’t take any of that as a shot on the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s favorite gone-straight criminal, there are plenty of superheroes, just like Ant-Man, who would be nothing without the women who support them.

With Ant-Man and the Wasp buzzing into theaters next week, let’s take a look at eight superheroes who are strengthened, supported, and improved by the women in their lives:

Iron Man and Pepper Potts



Whether it’s in the comics or on screen, in a relationship or merely partners, Tony Stark is nothing without Pepper Potts. Billionaire, genius, playboy philanthropist he may be, but not knowing your own social security number is a little bit more restrictive than one might think. It’s not all Tony’s fault, Howard couldn’t function on his own either, but that’s what Jarvis and Peggy were for. As hopeless as he may be, let’s call it a good thing that Tony’s found his soul mate in the saint that is Virginia “Pepper” Potts.

Superman and Lois Lane



Lois and Clark are the quintessential comic book ship. Even when Superman ends up in other pairings for one reason or another, it always comes back to one woman: Lois Lane. Lois doesn’t give Superman his powers. She can’t stop bullets, or run faster than a train, but she is a huge part of Clark Kent’s most important power: his humanity. The Man of Steel might be able to snatch a plane out of the air, but he’s nothing without his ace reporter.

The Green Arrow and Felicity Smoak/Dinah Lance



Good old Oliver Queen has all the charm in the world and could split a strand of hair with that bow and arrow of his. He also happens to be a mess and a half without the women in his life. Dinah Lance is the perfect companion for Ollie’s comic book antics, falling in step with his swagger and having absolutely none of his nonsense. Television’s Oliver Queen might be a few shades darker than his comic book counterpart, but his sometimes agonizingly slow progress wouldn’t have even started without Felicity Smoak.

Zan and Jayna



It’s impossible to have a list of male heroes who can’t function without their female counterparts without including the Wonder Twins. Their powers literally don’t activate without each other! Jayna needs Zan for her powers as well, but with Zan only able to become objects or substances, his super sister is still critical to his functionality as a hero.

The Human Torch and the Invisible Woman



Despite his occasional efforts to act otherwise, Johnny Storm is a hero. Each member of the Fantastic Four makes the team work, but no one has pushed Johnny harder than his sister, Sue. She’s calm in all the ways that he’s rash, and in turn he helps her take risks that she might not have every now and again. Like the Wonder Twins, this sibling superhero pair compliments each other nicely, but it feels safe to say that Johnny wouldn’t be the hero he is without Sue Storm.

Hawkman and Hawkgirl



If there’s one thing Hawkman makes abundantly clear, it’s that he can’t survive without Hawkgirl. Hawkman and Hawkgirl are literally linked across time and space through the power of mutual resurrection. On Legends of Tomorrow, their relationship was less than healthy, but once Hawkgirl started to get her memories back things got a little less pushy on Hawkman’s part.

Spider-Man and Aunt May



They say behind every good man is the woman that raised him. That phrase couldn’t be more right when it comes to Peter Parker and his Aunt May. Uncle Ben might have been the one to bestow the knowledge of great responsibility to Pete, but it was May who had to keep on living and raising a teenager who was still trying to figure out how to deal with being a superhero.

Mon-El and Supergirl



Kara Zor-El might have been a touch discriminatory towards Mon-El because of his Daxamite heritage when the two first met, but eventually they overcame their families’ prejudices and found themselves in a pseudo-relationship. When Mon-El returned from the future, he was hero who had realized that he needed to use his powers for good. This was all because of Supergirl’s influence. He founded the Legion of Superheroes in her memory, making her the reason Mon-El became the hero she knew he could be.

All of this is to say that Scott Lang, lovable mess, isn’t alone in his need for a smart woman to help him out every once in a while. All of these incredible heroes acknowledge that there’s no shame in that either. Just another trait they all share that helps make them incredible.

I’ve lost friends because of my postpartum depression

by

Becky Vieira

posted in Life

I’ve lost friends since my son was born. We didn’t grow apart. It’s not something I’m imagining. The relationships are simply no longer there.

Sure, I expected things to change. That I’d have less time to talk or see people as I adjusted to motherhood. But I never thought anyone would exit my life.

Unfortunately, that’s exactly what happened after I was diagnosed with postpartum depression.

I stopped worrying about maintaining friendships and focused on maintaining my will to live. It sounds dramatic — trust me, I know — but that’s what happened. I was depressed. Contemplating leaving my husband and newborn child. Thinking about ending my life. Things were dark for me.

I ignored calls and texts. Begged off requests to visit. Which led me to being even more depressed, convinced my friends hated me. Finally I got help. Medication and therapy. Began to see a semblance of my old life once again.

Mom with PPD lays on floor

My friends were wonderful. Supportive and understanding. Never pushed. 

Then I had a relapse and disappeared. Again. I eventually felt stronger and reached out. Reconnected. But it continued to happen. Three, four, now five times.

I wish I could say that I’ve reconnected with all my friends each time. But unfortunately that’s no longer the case. Every time I come up for air I seem to have lost another friend. It breaks my heart. But I understand.

Maintaining a friendship with someone who’s fighting a mental illness isn’t easy. I’m present. Gone. I stop responding to calls, texts and emails. Can’t be relied upon for anything. Fall into the darkness with no way to know when I’ll be back again. If ever.

When I’m able to return to the light I expect life to pick up where I left off. But life for everyone else moves on. Unfortunately, that’s also meant that some people have moved on and away from me.

My son is now 20 months-old, and I know it’s hard to understand how I “still” have PPD. People don’t know that this awful beast can continue to control me.

To all my lost friends, please know this: When I said I couldn’t have visitors because I had a cold, that wasn’t entirely true. I hadn’t slept for 26 hours and threw everything from my linen closet onto the floor in a rage when I couldn’t find something.

When I missed your birthday party it wasn’t because my son was teething. I’d been hysterically crying for so long that my eyes were swollen shut.

And I didn’t ignore your text. I read it. Tried to reply so many times but my clouded mind couldn’t put words together. The longer I waited the more my anxiety grew. Until I deleted it out of fear that you’d hate me. A self-fulfilling prophecy, it turns out.

Mother and toddler son next to statue at zoo

I understand that being my friend is tough. I just want you to know why I fall off the radar. And help you understand what’s going on with me. I’m sure you wonder why I don’t simply tell you when it happens. Because I told you when I was diagnosed. Why have I stopped talking or hiding again?

My mind lies to me. It takes everything in me just to get out of bed and care for my son. I value you and our friendship. But somedays I just can’t do it. 

In this case, the cliche is true. It’s not you… it’s me.

If you think you may be suffering from postpartum depression, don’t wonder. Speak up. Talk to you doctor, partner, family and friends. If you are scared or worried about the stigma (I get it… we shouldn’t be concerned about that but of course we often are) and would rather talk to someone outside of your circle, you can call Postpartum Support International at 1.800.944.4773. If you just need a fellow mom to validate you and listen to your fears, find me on Instagram and reach out.

Anxious, overwhelmed, unhappy, or scared by how you feel? If you’re struggling emotionally, you could be depressed. Take this 10-question quiz to find out.

How Nice! Young M.A. Hosts a Mother’s Day Celebration for Families Who Lost Loved Ones to Street Violence

Young M.A. organized a pre-Mother’s Day brunch for residents who lost loved ones to street violence in the East New York neighborhood where she grew up.

The event is the first for her KWEENZ foundation.

via NYDN

The hip-hop star lost her 20-year-old brother Kenneth in 2009, when he was fatally stabbed in the back by a friend. Her mom, Latasha Blackmon, recalled the dark times that followed his slaying.

“My whole world changed,” she told the audience of about 50 people. “I had PTSD, I had depression, anxiety. It hasn’t been easy, every day is a struggle for us. But we have had many blessings along the way.” 

Young M.A., whose real name is Katorah Kasanova Marrero, said events like this allow people to share their pain with others who faced the same crushing anguish.

“This is our way of keeping him alive,” the 26-year-old rapper said of her brother. “Reaching back to families who are going through the same situation … and letting them know that they’re not alone.

“When you’re going through it, it feels like you’re the only one.”

Helium-filled balloons marked “Happy Mother’s Day” floated above the tables where the families assembled inside the 3 Black Cats Cafe in Brooklyn.

In addition to mimosas, the guests sipped sangria while enjoying a spread of sugar-dusted waffles, shrimp and chicken.

Hip-hop music played in the background as the guests bonded by sharing their stories.

Young M.A. was joined by her mom and her grandmom to hear attendees like Dominique Harrell, 17, share the story of a friend killed by gang violence in the summer of 2016.

Harell made a lifelong pal in Nashaun Plummer when the pair met in a middle school bereavement class. Dominique lost her mom and Nashaun lost his older brother in a shooting.

Several years later, at the age of 15, Nashuan was gunned down about three blocks from the site of his brother’s gang murder.

“He was funny, outgoing,” recalled Harrell, a student at Mott Hall Bridges Academy in Brownsville. “Whenever he smiled, you smiled.”

Halchervene Bobbit, 42, recalled the shooting death of her cousin on a Brooklyn rooftop back in April 2004.

“I don’t know if I’m entirely over it,” said Bobbit, who spent the last 14 years avoiding the building where the gun violence occurred.

“I haven’t been back (there) since,” she said.

The foundation’s name combines the royal titles of king and queen. The rapper hopes her group can not only help heal the bereaved, but offer assistance to low-income families and single mothers.

“Having my platform, I just really wanted to reach out to my community and do something right,” she said.

On a personal note, she hoped the event would introduce her mother to other moms dealing with the same issues.

“This is something for her to get into and give her a little relief, and meet other mothers who have been in this situation so they’re not alone,” said Young M.A.

Fox To Air ‘O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession?’

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Fox TV will air an O.J. Simpson special including a previously unseen 2006 interview in which he theorizes about what happened the night his ex-wife was murdered.

The two-hour special, with the provocative title “O.J. Simpson: The Lost Confession?” will air 8 p.m. EST Sunday, March 11, Fox said Thursday. Soledad O’Brien is the host.

Publisher Judith Regan had interviewed Simpson for a book to be published by her HarperCollins imprint, ReganBooks. But “If I Did It” was dropped in response to widespread outrage and Regan was later fired and her imprint disbanded.

Fox, which like HarperCollins was owned by News Corp., planned to air a two-part special before the book’s planned 2006 release. But the network reversed course after some Fox affiliates balked at carrying the program about the 1992 stabbing deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman.

The videotapes were shelved on the Fox studio lot and recently discovered. In a release, Fox breathlessly described the “infamous” interview as “lost — until now.”

“Simpson’s explosive words finally will be heard, as he answers the questions that gripped a nation during the notorious ‘Trial of the Century,’” the network said in a release.

Simpson was acquitted of criminal charges by jurors but found responsible in a subsequent civil trial.

The ghostwritten, fictionalized account of the murders ultimately was published by another company, and a federal bankruptcy judge later awarded rights to the book to Goldman’s family to help satisfy a $ 38 million wrongful death judgment against Simpson.

The family labeled the book as Simpson’s confession, the same description Regan offered in justifying the original publication. In the interview with Regan, Simpson talked about how he would have committed the murders “if he were the one responsible.”

The former football hero served nine years in prison for leading five men, including two with guns, in a September 2007 confrontation with two sports collectibles dealers at a Las Vegas casino hotel.

No Love Lost: Kandi Burruss Shows Love to the New Xscap3 After Name Change

Photo Credit/: BRAVO

While Kandi Burruss joined Xscape groupmates Tameka “Tiny” Cottle-Harris, La Tocha Scott and Tamika Scott for their comeback tour, the reality star chose to sit-out a reunion album, leaving the threesome to forge ahead without her.

This led some fans to believe there was still bad blood between the southern songstresses, but the current Broadway star had nothing but well wishes for the group that has re-branded themselves as Xscap3.

“I want to send my love to my girls Xscap3 and congratulate them on the moves [they’re] making!” she wrote on Instagram. “I want everybody to know that there is no drama. It is still love with us. I support what they’re doing with the new music & I want y’all to do the same.”

#Kandi showing support to her former group members!

A post shared by The Shade Room (@theshaderoom) on

Burruss currently stars as Matron “Mama” Morton in Chicago, one of the longest-running Broadway musicals of all time, from Jan. 15 through March 11 at the Ambassador Theatre in New York City.

For Quicksilver’s CEO, Lost at Sea, The Search Has Ended—But Hope Endures

Iroz Gaizka/Getty

The search for the French CEO of the iconic surfer brand Quiksilver in the chilly, choppy Atlantic off his beloved Capbreton, France, has been called off but the anguished son of Pierre Agnes says he will never stop looking for him.

“I love you! I love you! You are the best father in the world so I will continue to search for you until the day I die,” wrote his teenage son, Mathieu Agnes, on Instagram next to a photo of him and his father on the family boat when he was a little boy.

Agnes, 54, was a former surfing champion who joined Quiksilver in 1998 and took over as chief executive of Boardriders, its parent company, in 2015.

Quiksilver CEO Lost At Sea Off The Coast of Hossegor

On January 30th, 2018 the CEO of the surf brand Quiksilver was presumed lost at sea. At 7:30 a.m. Pierre Agnes took his boat out fishing to a popular surfing beach just north of Biarritz called Hossegor.

According to the Port Master at the port of Capbreton, Agnes radioed in that his arrival time would be delayed due to poor visibility. Pierre Agnes’ motorboat –  Mascaret III washed up on the shore of La Graviere at 9:15 a.m. Immediately after this unfortunate discovery, the French coastguard launched a full fledged search party for the CEO which included three helicopters, two boats, and numerous lifeguards swimming a couple miles off shore.

10 hours into the search and Pierre Agnes was still no where to be found. Local surf photographers and others crowded along the coast of La Graviere, keeping an eye out for Agnes in-between sets. With little to no luck, there was no sign of Pierre Agnes.

Agnes is a well-accomplished fisherman and surfer. He has made similar trips “thousands” of times in tricky conditions.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Agnes friends and family during this terrible tragedy.

She Lost Her Home, But Her Spirit Shines Bright

It’s no secret Stephanie Stauer loves decorating for every occasion, especially Christmas. In fact, she loves decorating for the holidays so much, that she eagerly volunteers to help friends and coworkers adorn their homes.

Traditionally, Stephanie, who works at Kaiser Permanente Santa Rosa Medical Center, would have filled her family home with five individually themed trees to celebrate the holiday season. But this year, like so many other Northern and Southern California residents, the Stauers’ holiday traditions have been compromised. In October, their Fountaingrove home in Northern California fell to the Tubbs fire.

And still, Stephanie’s spirit shines through.

“Stauers bend but do not break,” says the Petaluma native, whose gentle demeanor belies the strength it’s taken to survive a stroke, breast cancer, and now fire, in the past decade.

Living in a borrowed home she feels blessed to share with her husband Nick, their son Nolan, 14, and daughter Catherine, 18, Stephanie is experiencing a decorator’s dream come true. She and her daughter traveled south to help decorate Kaiser Permanente’s 2018 Rose Parade® Float, “Inspiring Healthy Communities.”

“Rather than focusing on what we have lost, we need to focus on what we have and celebrate the things that bring us happiness and fulfillment,” said Stephanie. “I have my family, I have my health, what else can I ask for!”

Stephanie has joined the more than 500 Kaiser Permanente employees and their families who are helping to decorate the organization’s 13th Rose Parade float. They will delicately affix hundreds of pounds of natural materials, including green roses, manzanita leaves, orange lentils, palm fronds and other organic supplies to bring the float to life. The float will have 46 individual moving parts, and all of the sculpted fruits, flowers and vegetables will spin, swing, turn or rotate.

Tune into the Rose Parade on New Year’s Day as “Inspiring Healthy Communities” makes its way down Pasadena’s legendary Colorado Boulevard.

To learn more, check out local news coverage of Stephanie.

U.S. Lost 33,000 Jobs in September, Thanks to Hurricanes

The combined force of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria derailed America’s seven-year hiring streak last month. U.S. employers lost 33,000 jobs in September, the first decline in the monthly economic bellwether in seven years, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported. Although analysts predicted the number would take a hit after the widespread disruption from the storms, the jobs figures were well below what was expected. The unemployment rate, however, did edge down to 4.2 percent. Average monthly wages were 2.9 percent higher than a year earlier.

NFL Star Cam Newton Just Lost a Big Sponsorship Over Sexist Comments

Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton is losing an endorsement with yogurt maker Dannon after laughing at a female reporter who asked him a question Wednesday.

Newtown said “It’s funny to hear a female talk about routes like—it’s funny,” in response to a question from Charlotte Observer beat reporter Jourdan Rodrigue at a news conference Wednesday.

Now, Dannon has announced it is dropping Newton as a spokesperson, USA Today Sports reports, calling his comments “sexist and disparaging to all women.” The pro athlete has repped Dannon’s Oikos yogurt since 2015. He’s earned a reported $ 26 million this year, according to Forbes, between his $ 13 million salary and endorsement deals.

“It is entirely inconsistent with our commitment to fostering equality and inclusion in every workplace,” Michael Neuwirth, Dannon’s senior director of external communications, wrote in an email to USA TODAY Sports. It’s simply not OK to belittle anyone based on gender. We have shared our concerns with Cam and will no longer work with him.”

Rodrigue said she talked to Newton about the incident privately after the fact, but he did not apologize, despite Panthers director of communications Steven Drummond telling ESPN that Newton had “expressed regret for using those words.”

Gatorade and Beats Headphones are also sponsors, per Forbes, and he endorses Carolina’s HealthCare Systems and Electronic Arts. He also has a cleat collaboration with Under Armour, which is the company’s top-selling football cleat.

Photos: Mom searches for owner of lost stuffed puppy via Facebook

by

Michelle Stein

posted in Parenting

Any parent who has ever lost their child’s favorite stuffed animal — even for a day — will appreciate the lengths one mom has gone in trying to reunite a stuffed puppy with his rightful owner.

Katie Hoeppner, a mom of two from Iowa, recently happened upon the forgotten puppy in a rest area bathroom, located on Iowa Interstate 80 Eastbound. But she couldn’t just leave the poor little buddy there all by himself. Nope. She took to Facebook in hopes of finding the lovey’s lost child.

“I don’t know his name, so I named him George,” Hoeppner wrote on her now-viral post. “‘George’ was my co-pilot home, wore his seat belt without a fuss, picked the music on the radio, and ran some errands with my family. I’m adding pictures to show George’s endeavors and captions to go along with it. Please help me get ‘George’ back to his family!!!”

Can you believe Hoeppner’s post has been shared more than 42,000 times on Facebook alone since Sept. 30? If you take a look at the adorable photos of George’s adventures, it isn’t hard to see why.

“GASP!!! There he sat, sad and lonely,” the caption in the photo of George’s discovery reads.

“George helped me drive for a little bit (For real, I was still parked in the rest stop lot when I took this. I wasn’t actually driving)”

“George knows that seat belts save lives.”

“I gave George control of the music we listened to. He likes Kenny Chesney, Shinedown, Zayne, and Korn. He has a wide array of musical tastes.”

“My 9 year old daughter Bentleigh introduced her raccoon stuffy Mokey (pronounced mow-key) to George so that he feels welcome in our home.”

“Then he cuddled up with my tweenager Grant and watched some college football.”

“George didn’t care for our trip to Michaels. He found the Cricut section overwhelming.”

“But he did like the skull and bones handkerchief I found!”

Adventures with George continued onto Starbucks, a carwash, bedtime, church, a cheerleading competition, Panda Express, making slime, playing in a fort, heading off to school — and even checking out his newfound fame in order to lift his spirits.

“My rescuer mom knew I was very sad about losing my family, so she started showing me how much the world loves me.”

“My kids have both lost their beloved stuffed animals. We know what it’s like to both get them back, and unfortunately never find them,” Hoeppner told BabyCenter. “It made me want to work to get George home.”

Although the George’s owner hasn’t turned up yet, they aren’t giving up hope. “The response and outpouring of love has been incredible and overwhelming,” Hoeppner said.

Let’s help her find George’s rightful family!

What do you think of this story? Has your child ever lost a lovey?

The X Factor’s Spencer Sutherland reveals he lost 7 stone in a year before auditioning for the talent show

X FACTOR contestant Spencer Sutherland revealed he lost an incredible 7 stone in one year before auditioning for the talent show.

The 25-year-old said he was “borderline obese”.

“I was really big. I was trying out for the lead part in a High School Musical play – Zac Efron’s character – and they said: ‘Your voice is perfect for the part but you don’t really fit the image’.

“I was 270lbs and Zac Efron is 150lbs and that dug deep so I just took that, ran with it and started running and lifting weights.

“I’d run in the morning and I’d run at night. I’d eat really healthily.

“It took me about a year and I lost over 100 lbs.”

Spencer, who previously performed with Ariana Grande said his love life improved after he lost weight.

“I lost 60lbs in two months over the summer and I went back for my senior year at high school and finally I was this skinny guy,” he said.

“It was the first time all these girls like gave me attention and it is the coolest thing in the world. I know it sounds shallow.

“There is still like a fat kid in me that wants pizza all the time. I eat carbs, but oatmeal and rice – the healthy kind.

Gigi Hadid lost a shoe on the runway at NYFW, but sister Bella saved the day

Even when you’re a total expert at something, there’s always a time when things just don’t go as planned. Case in point: Gigi Hadid lost a shoe during New York Fashion Week , but it all turned out okay in the end.

Firstly, let’s just all agree that super high platform heels can be tricky to walk in — even for the pros. But, as with any unexpected happenings in life, it’s usually just best to laugh it off. Which is exactly what Gigi did with sister Bella, who linked arms with her big sis and helped her finish off the show with total poise.

Here’s a video of how the whole thing went down. You’ll notice that the audience could hardly tell that anything was amiss — all thanks to Bella!

That’s the perfect sisterly support system right there.

Now, can we discuss their outfits? Gigi’s silver sequined dress and Bella’s floral frock are giving us so much fall style inspo. And we are absolutely digging the show’s ’60s-inspired, bohemian theme (also, the clip definitely proves that fringed vests are back, and we’re 100% on board with that).

It’s also a great reminder that dresses can be layered with jewelry, jackets and wraps to give them an element of funk.

via GIPHY

We’re glad that Gigi’s wardrobe malfunction didn’t stop her from finishing out the show, and we’re also glad that sister Bella was there to fall back on. It’s a great reminder that life will always throw the unexpected at us, but as long as we have the support and friends and loved ones, we can make it through like champs!

‘Uncharted: Lost Legacy’ Review – A Familiar Feeling Adventure

When Uncharted: Lost Legacy was revealed late last year, this unexpected expansion raised its fair share of eyebrows. With Nathan Drake seemingly out of the picture, the first gameplay demo the world saw looked unlike anything else we’d seen from the long-running franchise.

Instead of the series’ mascot quipping his way out of a jungle, Naughty Dog’s gritty new trailer showed a mysterious veiled woman (who turned out to be Uncharted 2’s Chloe) sneaking through the streets of a war-torn Indian city. With explosions rocking nearby buildings and snarling rebel soldiers dragging civilians out of their homes, this surprise expansion hinted at a very different type of Uncharted game.

Now that Lost Legacy’s actually here though, we’re sorry to say that those hoping for a darker take on the popular franchise are going to be severely disappointed. While the first level gives you a nice glimpse into what a bleaker kind of treasure hunt might look like, the rest of Lost Legacy is very much just another Uncharted game – for better and for worse.



Nathan Drake is nowhere to be seen

Placed in the shoes of Uncharted 2’s Chloe Frazer, an artefact you find in the city soon sends you off to the sprawling Indian countryside.

Unsurprisingly, you’re after a legendary treasure once again, but this time it’s one that belonged to the ancient Hoysala Empire. With Uncharted 4’s moody mercenary Nadine tagging along for the ride, the pair soon find themselves in a trusty 4×4, exploring the same kind of luscious green locales that wowed us in last year’s A Thief’s End.

Mercifully though, it’s not all re-treading old ground here. For the first time in the series, Lost Legacy’s fourth chapter puts players into a sprawling open landscape, giving them an expansive playground to explore at their leisure.

Tasked with tracking down a slew of ancient artefacts, you’re free to tackle each mini temple in whatever order you please, with other hidden collectibles also scattered throughout the landscape.

While finding additional trinkets can often be a bit of a drag in open world games, Lost Legacy thankfully doesn’t hide these precious tokens in absurd places, instead demanding that you earn them by solving various puzzles or engaging in a spot of platforming.

While Uncharted isn’t exactly known for its head scratching puzzles, we were surprised by how varied and enjoyable these little trials were, with puzzles ranging from everything to fiddly rotating dials to trickily timed switches.



Open environments are the breath of fresh air that ‘Uncharted’ needed

Some of those optional tokens, however, will be a bit simpler to track down, with a couple merely sitting inside crumbling buildings. While that may not sound particularly exciting, stumbling on a trinket inside an old tower you just spotted on the horizon feels like a genuine archaeological discovery. It adds a fun sense of adventure to treasure hunting, feeling slightly reminiscent of the recent Tomb Raider games.

Thanks to the varied puzzles and the sheer size of the map, this open chapter is a refreshing change of pace from the series’ usually painfully linear adventures.

Unfortunately, though, that sense of freedom doesn’t last long. Without wanting to spoil anything, the usual bait and switch shenanigans you’d expect from an Uncharted adventure rear their head, causing the rest of the game to sharply change tack.

After letting players off the lead for the first time, it feels as though the game designers were all too swift to put them back in their place, quickly sending players back to the tried-and-tested linear temple missions of old. This means that the last half of the game falls into a predictable Uncharted rhythm, with Chloe and Nadine jumping around a bit, gunning down a few enemies and then solving the occasional simplistic puzzle.



But a poor story lets ‘Lost Legacy’ down

The core gameplay here is still undeniably great, but sadly, there’s just not a strong enough narrative to keep players motivated. After the brilliant and emotional journey players embarked on in Uncharted 4, it’s pretty disappointing to be following characters that feel so poorly fleshed out.

Without a compelling reason to keep pushing through each new area, the generic script turns what should have been an exciting adventure into a series of repetitive action movie tropes.  There’s a fan-pleasing appearance from a key Uncharted character towards the end of the game, but at that point – it’s simply too little too late.

Is ‘Uncharted: Lost Legacy’ any good?

Still, despite the poor narrative, there is some fun to be had in Lost Legacy. While it’s definitely not the globe-trotting adventure of a full, numbered Uncharted, this expansion has a few great moments of its own. If you’re desperate to lose yourself in another treasure-hunting escapade, Lost Legacy will be just the ticket. For everyone who still feels satisfied by the giddy highs of last year’s Uncharted 4 though, your £25 is probably better spent elsewhere.

Chloe and Nadine enter ‘Uncharted’ Territory in ‘The Lost Legacy’

Adieu, Nathan Drake. We will miss your soggy half-tucks and granite grip. We bid a fond farewell to the man of a million cliff jumps and usher in a new(ish) set of treasure hunters to Uncharted, Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross. The question now is how will the retirement of series mainstay Nathan Drake and the introduction of two new protagonists change the dynamic of the game? As Naughty Dog sunsets Drake & Co. while elevating Chloe to star status (with Nadine playing the role of Sully), they simultaneously maintain the integrity of the franchise and give players a fresh take on the world of Uncharted.

What is The Lost Legacy?

In Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, players take control of Chloe Frazer. Introduced in Uncharted 2, Among Thieves as a thief and fellow treasure hunter, the new expansion gives Ms. Frazer her own adventure — one complete with its own specialized McGuffin.

Like Nathan and Sully before her, all great Uncharted heroes need a solid backup. Frazer enlists the grit and expertise of Shoreline mercenary Nadine Ross to aid in her journey. Nadine played a pivotal role in Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End as the woman who kicked Nathan Drake out of all those windows and generally made “Uncharting” a living hell for “the good guys”.

The Lost Legacy takes Nadine and Chloe, both veteran Uncharted explorers, on a mad hunt through India searching for the Tusk of Ganesha. Standing in their way is series newcomer Asav, a war-monger and Nadine’s former colleague. The trio will collide on the road to glory as they battle for the rights to The Tusk.

Uncharted Waters


Chloe admires Nadine’s hair, ignoring the beautiful vista before her

Uncharted has been anchored by its spectacular set pieces, engaging story, its wise-cracking hero, and his cadre of colorful companions. For the past 10 years, the series has done an excellent job cultivating a wealth of engaging personalities fans can interact with. From Sullivan to Tenzin, Naughty Dog worked to craft a strong world outside of the main protagonist.

Without the presence of Nate in this latest entry, the Uncharted series is handed over to a few pieces of that expanded universe puzzle. Chloe and Nadine serve as a fan-friendly transition into a new era of the franchise; a franchise with the versatility to tell new and engaging stories with a fresh set of characters each time. Nathan’s departure opens the door to all new opportunities for the series.

It’s Lethal Weapon, but with Treasures and Such


I’ll never let go, Chloe! I’ll never let go!

Nadine and Chloe bring a different dynamic to the Uncharted series. While we are accustomed to the unbreakable family bond between Sully, Nate, and Elena, our new duo will be more akin to new partners, Riggs and Murtaugh, in their first Lethal Weapon outing. Chloe is in search of the Tusk of Ganesha for personal reasons, well beyond simply playing keep away with Asav. Nadine is in it for the cash as a gun for hire. Their journey will be contentious at first but leading to a stronger, more trust-based bond later.

The dynamic of both characters will be the catalyst for The Lost Legacy’s success. How will these two bad ladies work together to take down an even worse guy in Asav? The duo’s interactions will inform how well they work together or how bitterly they work against one another.

This new business-first companionship will integrate story and gameplay in a way that’s unlike any other Uncharted outing before it. Along with more open-world exploration, this side story aims to show fans that the series has many other places to go, stories to tell, and enhancements to introduce.

Starting a New Legacy


Sprawling underground cave castles. A staple of Uncharted.

With this move to Nadine and Chloe, we are given a wider glimpse of this world Nathan lived in. Having different protagonists and character dynamics gives Uncharted a fresh feel. The use of established characters gives fans the tether to the original franchise that many may be looking for. It is truly Uncharted territory with The Lost Legacy, and the future is looking bright.

Rest easy, Nathan, the ladies got this one.

Let’s do the math: How much sleep have you lost as a parent?

by

Sara McGinnis

posted in Parenting

Plug the ages of your kids into this website, hit “calculate my lost sleep,” and prepare to shed a few tears for all of the shuteye you can never get back.

lost sleep calculator

Thanks to home furnishing brand Hillarys in the United Kingdom, we can now tally just how long all those up-all-night feedings (not to mention the swaddling, shushing, swinging, and hunting for lost pacifiers) take. The calculator also churns out numbers on how many nappies (that’s diapers for those of us Stateside) you’ve gone through, bedtime stories read, and lullabies sung.

Since my kids are now older, I thought back to weeks and months exhaustion ruled our world for my calculation. Here’s the result for one kid at 23 months old, and a baby at 3 months of age:

lost sleep calculator

Do you see that?! I had enough time to gestate another child through all the sleep I’ve missed out on!

As someone who loves sleep the way others go crazy for football or ice cream, I can’t help but cringe looking at those 6,453 hours tallied up. Still, I have to wonder just how these calculations are done. I was very lucky to have a firstborn who slept through the night at 2 months old. From what I can tell, his early months are being counted as the same as the 15-month struggle I had getting baby number two to sleep soundly. Perhaps if you have a few kids it averages out?

For what it’s worth, I put in my kids’ current ages (12- and 11 years old), and the total only jumped to 6,660 hours. Seems they are at least accounting for kids sleeping better as they age — and thank goodness they do!

How much sleep does this calculator say you’ve missed out on?

She Lost Her Job, And Then Made Over $80K in Profits During Memphis Black Restaurant Week

What if you lost a job you loved? Well, Cynthia Daniels, chief event strategist and rising media mogul, is no stranger to this. In fact, she turned a stressful situation into a successful venture.

 

(Cynthia Daniels. Image: Courtesy of Cynthia Daniels)

 

In 2008, Daniels was given the pink slip and was forced to abandon one of her fondest passions: recruiting talented mentors to serve at-risk youth. It was an emotional loss, to say the least.

And when you’re an educated professional standing tall with both a bachelor’s and master’s degree who can’t find another job after a year of searching, you can either become bitter or better.

Daniels chose the latter. She left her home in Atlanta and started a new path in Memphis, walking a road that led to some of her greatest professional victories. She became president of the Memphis Urban League Young Professionals, helping small businesses gain visibility as a social media manager.

She then launched Memphis Black Restaurant Week—an initiative that generated over $ 80,000 of profits for local businesses in one week.

How does one person move to another city and change the financial potential of black-owned businesses? Black Enterprise caught up with Daniels to discuss her brilliant idea and how she created endless business opportunities in Memphis.

How did you come up with the idea for Memphis Black Restaurant Week and did you expect it to be as profitable as it was? What do you think was key to your success?

Memphis is a big food town! It’s the one thing the city rallies around. I met with some of the owners of black restaurants to get feedback as to how they were doing and what they thought would help them to prosper and grow. The consensus was a lack of support from the black community and the lack of money to market their restaurants to all of Memphis.

(Image: blackrestaurantweek.com)

 

Using their feedback, the experience I gained from working with the Memphis Urban League Young Professionals, and contacts I developed professionally, I thought of a week to highlight black restaurants. The goals of this week would be to increase patronage and profits and publicize the existence and locations of black restaurants. The idea of a week for all black restaurants allowed the owners to pool their financial resources.

Believe it or not, I did not expect the Memphis Black Restaurant Week to be profitable. My personal goal was to help my community grow economically and help the owners I came to know experience some success. Apparently, grassroots marketing and the use of social media made the week very successful. The owners and the patrons were excited all week and could not wait for the next year.

What were the steps you needed to take in order to successfully execute this idea?

I became familiar with the neighborhoods in the city, business owners, community leaders, and political influencers. I leveraged my experience in event planning for nonprofits. I developed a marketing plan, recruited volunteers, and met with the restaurant owners to go over the plan with them. Local television, radio, and print media picked up the idea, which increased the geographical areas for publicizing the event.

How were you able to capitalize on the assets of Memphis to build your business?

As a black professional in Memphis, I saw the need to create events focused on highlighting minority businesses and celebrating young black talent. Memphis is the type of city where you have to create the change you want to see.

Coming from Atlanta and traveling extensively with the National Urban League Young Professionals, I was able to see firsthand what was missing in my own backyard. My company also produces Top 40 Under 40 Urban Elite Professionals, Level UP Conference, Art & Soul, The Party Life: A New Year’s Eve Celebration and Soulful Food Truck Sunday. In 2018, I’ll be creating two large scale expos to appeal to African American brides and holiday shoppers.

Did you experience any cultural, racial, or gender resistance?

Unfortunately, I received a lot of pushback from certain parts of the community. They would retaliate and say, “Why can’t there be a White Restaurant Week in Memphis?” They didn’t understand the need for me to create this platform, even though we celebrate other ethnicities with a Jewish Festival, Italian Festival, Latino Festival, and more.

What should black people focus on to increase the economic wealth in our communities?

We should pursue higher education degrees, obtain vocational educational diplomas (especially in science and technology), increase homeownership, tap into the benefits of entrepreneurship, advocate for financial resources, support black-owned businesses, and improve family stability.

FASHION DEALS UPDATE:

Lost Weekend: All About Scott Disick’s ‘Vulgar’ Behavior During Latest Hamptons Day-Drinking Spree

 

Scott Disick’s summer of partying continues.

The reality star, 34, stopped at Shelter Island’s Sunset Beach Hotel in the Hamptons, New York, on Sunday — and while he only stayed for about an hour, Disick made his presence known.

According to Johnny Sturges, a Sunset Beach lifeguard who was on duty at the time of Disick’s visit, the father of three arrived intoxicated around 2:30 p.m. with a group of men and women before continuing to drink at the bar, where he was “saying a lot of vulgar comments to girls right next to him.”

The 34-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star snapped photos with guests, including Sturges and a coworker, and hit the beach in search of more to drink.

“These girls that were sitting on the beach, they were drinking and he asked them for a beer,” Sturges says, adding that Disick made a vulgar offer to the women before he successfully scored beverages from two families while in the Hamptons. “They looked at him weird.”

By the time Disick — whose nine-year relationship with Kourtney Kardashian ended in 2015 — was ready to take the shuttle boat back to the hotel, he was “really drunk, chain smoking cigarettes and had his shirt off,” Sturges explains. “He was yelling, ‘Go to the boat, go to the boat.’ ”

A source tells PEOPLE that Kardashian — who is the mother to their three children Mason, 7, Penelope, 4, and Reign, 2 — is aware of Disick’s Hamptons vacation and “thinks he should be at home with his kids instead of out partying.”

RELATED VIDEO: Bella Thorne Gives an Update on Her Relationship with Scott Disick

 

Earlier this month, Disick took a boys trip to Miami and hung out with Bella Thorne in New York City after initially getting together at the Cannes Film Festival. He broke up the partying with a trip to Nantucket, where he joined Kardashian, 38, and their kids for family lunches and low-key quality time together.

“He’s partying hard, but he is still good with the kids,” a source told PEOPLE at the time. “He will stay sober when he is around them.”

Another insider told PEOPLE recently that Disick’s bad-boy behavior stems from jealousy and pain from his “fractured” relationship with Kardashian.

“In his ideal world, he would still be with Kourtney. He wants her back, but he just isn’t taking the steps needed to make that happen,” said the insider, who added that “Scott is really sad about it, and it’s part of why he’s lashing out.”

Leave It to Beaver Actor Jerry Mathers Lost 55 Pounds After Getting a Terrifying Health Diagnosis

Jerry Mathers owned a successful catering business in Hollywood in 1997 when he received a devastating diagnosis from his doctor.

Mathers, 69, told Fox News doctors told him he only had three to five years to live if he didn’t manage his Type 2 diabetes.

“I was living the good life,” he said. “I had side businesses and one of them was a catering business. And I was doing a lot of motion picture and television catering for crews, which is for about 100-200 people. It’s like setting up a whole restaurant.”

The Leave It to Beaver actor was eating five to six full meals a day while mingling among those working on sets.

“I was around food all the time and I was a very good cook,” he explained. “I was making a lot of money, everything was going great, and everyone around me was at least as fat as I was.”

In addition to being diabetic, Mathers was diagnosed with high blood pressure and bad cholesterol. He began working out and lost 55 pounds after selling his catering company.

“I’ve been controlling my weight with diet and exercise ever since,” he said. “I walk every day about 6-8 miles. And I am now pre-diabetic because of that… dying from diabetes is a terrible way to go. It’s a really horrible death. It basically burns different parts of your body.”

Mathers said it’s still difficult to maintain control and portion his food intake when he goes out to eat. Despite temptations, he is taking it one day at a time.

“It’s really tough,” he said. “But I think, ‘I can have this, but do I want to run further to get the weight off? Could I even get it off?’ It’s a daily struggle. I’m not cured. This is something I have to deal with all the time. And I’m hoping that by going out to educate people on diabetes, I can save my fans.”

The Lost Art of Skipping Rocks

We stood at the edge of the water. The girls crouched down in the sand. They were looking for the perfect rock. My 5-year-old knew exactly what she had in mind. She was scouring the ground for the biggest, flattest rock possible. The 2-year-old’s criteria involved digging up any item that looked remotely like a rock and then she would hold it up triumphantly once she found it.

2015-05-27-1432686572-8637334-IMG_1193.jpg

With rocks in hand, we tossed them into the water. It seemed I had forgotten how to do this simple activity. My first few rocks landed with a loud splash. However, after several tries, I began to see my rocks gently skim the top of the water. I would select another rock and throw it, counting each time it skipped and bounced. Then, my competitive side came out as I tried to skip the rocks farther than my husband. This activity seemed natural for him. It’s as if he knew exactly which rock to pick, how to grip it perfectly and toss it with one graceful, yet swift, movement.

The girls participated too, throwing their rocks with a splash, plop or plunk. It was a peaceful moment for our little family. The birds chattered away in some trees nearby, waves gently hit against the dock and there was the soft hum of motor boats in the distance.

2015-05-27-1432686671-7846995-IMG_1194.jpg

As we stood there, it occurred to me how much we’ve lost to the hectic pace of a technologically advanced society. The art of skipping rocks, an intense game of marbles, hopscotch, kick the can and flying kites are just a few of my fondest childhood memories. Then there’s capture the flag, four square, cat’s cradle, pick-up-sticks and jacks. I also recall the simple fun of sledding, making snow angels, weaving crowns out of dandelions and whistling with quack grass.

I have vivid memories of childhood play… free, wild, and imaginative play. I remember when I was a little girl, the neighborhood children would gather and spend a significant amount of time establishing rules for our games. Sometimes it seemed that the actual time to play the games paled in comparison to the amount of time it took to plan for the game.

I also recall home base and I’m certain every neighborhood had one. Our home base was a small grey power box. Sometimes we would forget that we were playing a game and we would sit around the power box talking about the Flintstones or reading Archie comics. The street lights coming on was a cue that our freedom outside was coming to an end. We would squeeze in as much play time as we could before our moms or dads called us in for the evening.

2015-05-27-1432686757-5770691-IMG_1195.jpg

My mind came back to the present. My youngest daughter was holding a large rock overhead and she plopped it into the water, almost falling in after it. As I stood there skipping rocks with my family, I realized that unless I do these things with my children, generations of childhood games could be lost. The art of skipping rocks could lose out against a game on a console.

I’m not going to let that happen. What about you?

Here’s Which ‘Lost’ Character Damon Lindelof Would Send To ‘Tomorrowland’

In Disney’s “Tomorrowland,” Britt Robertson’s Casey discovers a pin that transports her to a futuristic world when she touches it. In the film, directed by Brad Bird (“Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol”) and co-written by Damon Lindelof (“Lost”), Tomorrowland is faraway utopia created by the world’s top innovators, artists and scientists.

The Huffington Post asked Lindelof which “Lost” character he would send to Tomorrowland to better mankind’s future.

“I think that I’d probably send Hurley,” Lindelof told us. The fan favorite character would help Tomorrowland with his positive thinking, something largely essential to the movie’s plot, Lindelof explained.

“It’s always just nice to have someone around to lighten things up. He’s got a great sense of humor,” Lindelof said. Hurley “tended to always be the glass half full guy.”

We couldn’t agree more, and we bet Hurley would take full advantage of the jetpacks there.

While working on “Tomorrowland,” Lindelof also spent his time on the upcoming season of HBO’s “The Leftovers.” The series, co-created by Lindelof and inspired by Tom Perrotta’s novel of the same name, follows those who remain after the mysterious, sudden disappearance of two percent of the world’s population. It is one of the bleakest, most depressing shows on television, a stark contrast to the optimistic “Tomorrowland.”

Lindelof said the HBO show “was constantly threatening to infect” his latest Disney adventure. “The gravitational pull of that feeling, [that] darkness and depression, is so much more powerful than the optimistic and bright pull of ‘Tomorrowland,'” he said.

“When you spend time in a creative world like that, it does affect your mood. I was probably not the most pleasant person to live with,” he added.

When “The Leftovers” returns for its second season, at least we’ll have “Tomorrowland” to yank us out of our depression.

Or we can just think more like Hurley.

“Tomorrowland” is now playing in theaters.

A Love Note to the Lost Art of Skepticism

Question Everything, Believe in Something

The life of a skeptic can be lonely. While it feels like everyone around you is covered in a heavy blanket of certainty, you’re alone with your doubt. I used to wonder if something was wrong with me. Was it a lack of confidence? Lack of faith? Lack of heart? As an adult, I now know this is just who I am, down to my bones. And honestly, I wish more people were like me.

There, I said it. Now hear me out.

As a general rule, the easy answers are wrong. There is nuance in nearly everything — politics, work, and even love. But American culture glorifies certainty, and life is nicer when you can neatly divide issues, concepts and people into buckets of right and wrong, good and bad. This comforting worldview is a dangerous oversimplification, and deep down, we know it is as fragile as a long, thin glass vase. The slightest wind of reasonable doubt would blow it over.

When you start to question everything, including (most importantly) yourself, your beliefs will morph. You will lose some and gain others. You will grow. And the things and people you do believe in will grow some roots.

I’m Skeptical” by Georgie Pauwels, licensed CC BY 2.0

Politics

In politics, as with life, there should be an inverse relationship between the strength of your convictions and the complexity of the subject. This should be obvious, but when I see people arguing vehemently against Citizens United despite never having read the Supreme Court’s opinion in the case, I know that it is not.

We are suckers for sound bytes, and most of our political discourse flies around the surface. This makes sense in many ways. It is not possible to become an expert on every issue, learning the ins and outs. Our answer is to stay at the top, and that’s okay. But unfortunately, we like to pretend we know more than we do.

We have become a nation made up of indignant over-simplifiers at both political extremes and a large ambivalent middle that mainly just avoids engaging at all.

(Before any of you in the ambivalent middle start congratulating yourselves on your restraint, I should point out that apathy should not be a point of pride. It might even be worse than false certainty.)

This phenomenon explains my behavior on Facebook. For better or worse, I am a habitual Facebook debater. Once a Facebook friend makes a blanket statement about a complicated subject, it is almost beyond my control. I have to weigh in. And yes, I know arguing on the Internet is not exactly high art. But it’s the damn certainty that drives me mad. I have to start poking holes. It’s my duty as a passionate skeptic.

Almost inevitably, it becomes apparent my Facebook friend does not know enough of the particulars to be pontificating about policy details, and of course, my entire goal was to make that clear. Like a flash, those online water-cooler conversations go from the weeds of policy to a high-level philosophical debate because that is where they should be if we are going to throw around certitude like a frisbee.

There is room for reasonable debate about the nuances of nearly every policy issue. But for that to happen, we would have to abandon the bravado and speak dispassionately. We would have to acknowledge there were things we did not know and understand. We would have to become skeptics.

Work

Skepticism in the workplace can make us and our companies more effective. But questioning ideas can be uncomfortable, which means it is often implicitly discouraged in the workplace (often while ostensibly encouraged).

Questioning yourself at work is just as important but even more difficult. This is especially true for women, who are told by popular culture that they have a confidence problem and should lean in and speak up, rational doubts and realistic life complications be damned. We are told not only to be unwavering in our ideas and opinions, but to be unwavering in our promotion of self.

Several years ago, Clay Shirky wrote “A Rant About Women” in which he implored us along those lines. In a world where everyone is talking, talk louder. In a complicated society nearly deplete of black and white issues, appear certain. In a culture full of unwavering know-it-alls, become one.

Please don’t.

I don’t mean to be dismissive. There is some truth in these popular theories, including for my own life. No one would want to work for a company led by someone who second-guessed every decision and didn’t believe in what she did. But we should not overvalue personal certainty in the workplace anymore than we should in politics. We could end up stretching and contorting ourselves to remain sure at the expense of reason.

Love

The most beautiful form of skepticism can materialize in love. It means accepting that love is not simple because people are not simple. There are no pure lives, only pure moments.

We like to pretend there is a narrative about someone’s life that can sum them up. Just go to a funeral, and you’ll see how unwilling we are to give tribute to all of someone. We prefer to remember only the good, just as we often try to see only the good in life. This sounds lovely, and maybe when it comes to the people in life you knew or know from a safe distance, it is the right way. But for those you love the most, those you experience too much life with not to see their imperfections, it is unfair to draw a line around someone’s “goodness” and carry it around with you, leaving the rest of their complicated soul alone and unloved.

Loving someone, truly, means loving all of them.

Acknowledging there are things about them that are impure and maybe even despicable, and rather than being blind to those things or pretending they don’t exist, loving anyway. Recognizing that mistakes will be made, horrible thoughts felt, unfortunate words said.

This form of love can be liberating for the loved one, and it is nowhere more difficult and important than with our children. It frees them up to be who they are, rather than twisting and turning themselves to live up to our perfect image of them.

Sometimes this keeps me up at night.

If something happens to me, how will my son know that I was prepared to do everything in my power to fight the urge to sugarcoat his life or contort my image of him into something I want my son to be — that I was prepared to love all of him? Having a mother that questions everything can probably be difficult. But this is a gift that a skeptical mother can give to her child — a never-simple, always-there kind of love. He can wear it forever, even in his darkest days, like a heavy blanket of certainty.

Josh Hartnett Lost Out On Another Role Because He Passed On ‘Batman’

Josh Hartnett regrets passing on “Batman,” but not for the reason you may think.

Speaking to HuffPost Live on Wednesday, the actor explained that he’d met with Christopher Nolan while the director was casting for the 2005 installment, but he’d actually hoped to discuss his next film, “The Prestige,” instead.

“[‘Batman’] was not what I was interested in,” Hartnett recalled. “I really wanted to convince him that when he did the ‘The Prestige,’ maybe hire me.”

“And then, of course, as time went on, he ended up hiring the guy who he hired to play ‘Batman’ to play in ‘The Prestige,'” Hartnett continued, referring to Christian Bale.

The experience served as a teachable moment for the “Penny Dreadful” star.

“I realized much later that this is a relationship business,” said Hartnett, adding that he “regret[s] not forming a relationship with a great filmmaker [Christopher Nolan].”

“That was not necessarily where my head was at the time,” he concluded.

Examining The All Too Overlooked Art Of The Lost Pet Poster

It’s not all that often that regular folks — read: non-artists — decide to draw, photograph or even collage an impromptu art piece, reaching into the depths of their souls for inspiration, and plaster them throughout the public realm for all to see, interpret and act on.

We’re talking about lost pet posters, the peculiar breed of artwork that turns the most non-artistic of pet owners into creative adventurers almost instantaneously. The genre obviously arises only in the most heartbreaking of circumstances, thus prompting unlikely pet owners into some spontaneous soul searching and creative expression. They’re bizarre, handmade forms of public communication, intensely personal and yet all so alike.

joey

Fifteen years ago, Canadian artist (and animal lover) Ian Phillips became fascinated with the ephemeral paper artworks, which retained their prevalence even in an increasingly digital age. He collected lost pet posters from around the world, pleading for wayfaring dogs, cats, hamsters, ferrets, parrots, cows, and cockatiels. Compiled into a book titled “Lost: Lost and Found Pet Posters from Around the World,” the posters are at once desperate, sweet, heart-wrenching and honest. They can be funny and sometimes, quite bizarre. And, in nearly all cases, they’re painfully adorable.

The Princeton Architectural Press, due to popular demand, has issued a Fifteenth Anniversary Edition of the cult classic, which remains as aww-inducing as ever. Images intended to ensure the safety of Gummo, Ginger, Jerry and Bo become works of folk art in their own right, showing how dark instances can occasionally spark hope, community and creativity in us all.

Its participants are transferred to other defense agencies, but a few decide to leave the government behind, knowing full well their freedom hinges on keeping a low profile and living under the radar.

Returning to Uncle Sams open arms seems like their only viable option, until one of their own comes up with an idea that just might work. And the Power Up! Gym is born. Trainers, weights and fitness by day, psychic training and investigative work by night. Ex-PWP agent Keegan Price likes beer, sex, and relaxing after a hard days work.

When James Foreman tags along, so much the better. Foremans a wiseass who loves a good time, and his ability to manipulate fire with a snap comes in handy. Keegan knows theyre overqualified for this simple retrieval, but he figures he and James have earned a working vacation after spending so many hours in that damned gym. Except the case turns out to be anything but simple. The lockets a weapon, he and James cant take their eyes off the woman wearing it, and their spiraling sexual attraction for each other and her makes for one hell of a ride.

Naked In Dangerous Places: The Chronicles Of A Hungry, Scared, Lost, Homesick, But Otherwise Perfectly Happy Traveler

Naked In Dangerous Places: The Chronicles Of A Hungry, Scared, Lost, Homesick, But Otherwise Perfectly Happy Traveler


Finally, after years as a struggling radio host, Cash Peters has been given his own TV adventure show on a big-time travel network. The idea is simple: “Let’s dump him in an unfamiliar culture in a faraway land with no money and no place to stay, and see what happens.” Unfortunately, there is one major problem: Cash doesn’t want to go. Not only is he NOT the adventurous type, he is afraid of nearly everything and horribly allergic to the rest. Bottom line: they’ve given the show to the wrong guy.Naked in Dangerous Places is the story of one man’s efforts to remain sane in an insane world. Told with wit and shameless honesty, it documents a yearlong journey through exotic lands, from Kenya to Cambodia, Morocco to Dubai, as Cash drops in on fascinating cultures, eating, drinking, even sleeping in cow-dung huts with the locals, and eventually proving the truth of the old saying “What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” Though, to be honest, killing you is more likely.
