Move Over Roger Federer. This Move Is the Real Upset at the U.S. Open 2018

The tennis world may be reeling over five-time U.S. Open champion Roger Federer’s unexpected loss to John Millman, ranked far below Federer at number 55, but fans at Arthur Ashe stadium know the real upset took place before the match—someone was spotted dipping chicken fingers into soda.

ESPN reportedly broadcast the abhorrent behavior during the Madison Keys-Dominika Cibulkova match-up at the Queens, N.Y. tennis championship on Monday afternoon and reporting the crime against chicken quickly overshadowed live commenting on the match on Twitter.

The woman’s preferred chicken tender pairing soon became the talk of social media, as she seemingly managed to gross out the entire internet with one dunk of deep-fried chicken. The offensive dipping picked up traction online as the shocking snack pairing went viral. Even trusted snack source @Faturday deemed it “mutant” behavior:

While this may be the first time Federer has ever lost to a player ranked outside of the top 50 at the U.S. Open, it’s also the first time that loss has been overshadowed by a chicken nugget.

GOP House Members Move To Impeach Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein

Conservative members of the U.S House of Representatives introduced articles of impeachment on Wednesday against Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Rosenstein oversees special counsel Robert Mueller as he investigates allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The representatives argue that the Department of Justice has failed to provide documents and other disclosures demanded by the House.

The articles build on some members’ stance that the basis for a special-court warrant to track Carter Page, a onetime Trump campaign advisor, was illegitimate, despite the recent disclosure of a declassified version of the application to the FISA court. They say that Rosenstein has a conflict of interest by having both been involved in that application and overseeing Mueller’s efforts. Further, they claim that the DOJ has withheld documents and us ignoring Congressional subpoenas.

The move will likely never reach a vote, despite its championing by Reps. Mark Meadow, Jim Jordan, and nine others from the so-called Freedom Caucus–all strong allies of President Donald Trump. There’s little interest from other conservatives. Neither the chair of the House Judiciary Committee, Bob Goodlatte, nor Trey Gowdy, head of the House Oversight Committee, signed on to the impeachment effort. Nor did House Speaker Paul Ryan.

A broader swath of Republicans have criticized Rosenstein’s appointment of the special counsel from nearly the moment it occurred. As Mueller has issued subpoenas and indictments, and secured guilty pleas and convictions, the chorus has become more rousing. Some GOP members, however, want to see the process through to its completion, only more rapidly than it appears to be progressing.

DOJ officials told The Hill that they are well underway in delivering documents the House has requested, despite the unprecedented scale of those requests. The DOJ says it has fulfilled or is close to fulfilling three outstanding subpoenas.

The House group didn’t introduce the measure as “privileged resolution,” which would force a vote within a few days. The House adjourns for a month starting Thursday, and invoking that method would potentially lead to the measure expiring before members return.

No executive branch employee or appointee has faced impeachment since U.S. Secretary of War William W. Belknap in 1876. (He was acquitted.) The last president facing impeachment, Bill Clinton, was also acquitted. Were the articles of impeachment to pass with a majority in the House, the Senate would have to vote with a two-thirds majority to convict after a House-conducted trial.

Big Brother’s Swaggy C, Bayleigh Plan to Move in Together

Big Brother’s Swaggy C and Bayleigh Dayton will soon be roommates once more. The couple — who began a showmance on the CBS show — also plan to live under the same roof in real-life.

“It’s crazy but we talked about moving in with each other after the show ends,” the day trader exclusively tells Us Weekly. “When you confide in someone and can put 100 percent trust in them it grows fast. You see them at their worst, you sleep with them every night, you see them at their best.”

Swaggy and Bayleigh

Swaggy C (real name: Chris Williams) says that the pair had a four-hour conversation about their future the night before he was evicted. His backdoor was orchestrated by Head of Household Kaitlyn Herman and he lost to Winston Hines by a 8-4 vote.

It didn’t take long for Swaggy C, 23, and Bayleigh, 25, to align. In fact, the Bridgeport, Connecticut, native says they’ve used the “boyfriend and girlfriend” labels since day 10 in the house.

“It’s her personality,” he tells Us on what he loves most about the Atlanta-based flight attendant. “How much she actually cares for me, aside from the game, in terms of me bettering myself. She’s genuinely concerned about that and not so much her physical attraction, so that’s the main thing that attracted me to her.”

It’s way too early to discuss marriage, though. He adds: “That is obviously way far down the road.”

For more, read the rest of his Q&A below:

BIG BROTHER
BIG BROTHER Sonja FlemmingCBS

Us Weekly: What was going on in your head when Tyler Crispen used the Power of Veto on Scottie Salton?

Swaggy C: I’m looking at Fessy [Shafaat] and I see him pissed off and I’m looking across from me and I see Rockstar’s [Lantry] head’s down. Looking to my right and I see Kaitlyn is crying. I knew it was going to be me for some reason. I knew it before she ever said my name.

Us: Do you wish you had said something to Kaitlyn during the ceremony?

SC: No because I knew she could have broke the tie and I felt like if I flipped out on her then at the end of the day she probably wouldn’t have broke in my favor. So that’s why you saw me playing to her emotional side and her heart. If I knew the votes were going to be 8-4 and lopsided like that, I would have flipped out on every single person in that house before I left.

Us: Do you think she has too much blood on her hands now after nominating you?

SC: It’s going to backfire on her … I always said that I was going after Brett [Robinson], Winston, Angela [Rummans], and Rachel [Swindler] if I won HOH. They could have waited until I did that and then got me out but they did it too early. Now my side doesn’t like them as opposed to playing both sides and me keeping them safe and then letting me take the heat and be the threat and they could fly under the radar. But now their game is shown.

Us: How many personalized shirts did you bring into the house?

SC: I only brought seven in the house — or eight — and I left four in the house. Threw three in the crowd. I only got one on right now. I have a lot more at home but those are the one’s I brought to the show.

Us: When did you start making them?

SC: Literally a month ago I made them because I wanted this summer for me to only wear stuff that has my name on it. And then I did that and I got the call that said I was on Big Brother so I was like, you know what, let me just bring the shirts since I’m on the show. I didn’t make the shirts for the show. People think I made it for the show to sell it. No, I literally made it for myself.

 

Host Julie Chen interviews Chris Williams

Us: Did you know far in advance you were going to throw the shirts into the crowd before speaking with Julie Chen?

SC: I actually thought of it days before. I was like, alright if I ever get evicted I’ll just throw them out in the crowd. But my speech — I didn’t think of that until an hour beforehand. … I was literally thinking about it for maybe 5-10 minutes and then ran off with it.

Us: Do you usually give yourself pep talks the way you did on the show?

SC: Not pep talks but I do talk to myself from time to time, when I analyze things. Instead of thinking in my mind I kind of say it out loud.

Us: Where does your confidence come from?

SC: I always say that whether people love me or hate me, at the end of the day when they see me, their face makes a reaction. Whether it’s a good reaction or a bad reaction I’m not going to walk into a room and you’re just going to ignore me. I thrive off of that, which is why literally my high school yearbook quote was, “Whether you hate me or love me you’ll always remember me.” I live by that every day.

Us: What are three words to describe your BB experience?

SC: Greatest summer ever. Even though it was only 23 days it’s still great to be in that house.

Season 20 of Big Brother airs on CBS on Sundays and Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET and Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET.

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.

Jay-Z and Beyonce Pulled the Ultimate Power Couple Move and Surprised Everyone With a New Album

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jay-Z and Beyonce are keeping up a family tradition, dropping a surprise album before anyone knew it was coming.

The couple released a joint album that touches on the rapper’s disgust at this year’s Grammy Awards and features a shout out from their daughter Blue Ivy to her siblings.

The nine-track album “Everything Is Love” dropped Saturday on the Tidal music streaming service that Jay-Z partially owns.

The album features Beyonce rapping on songs more than she has done on previous releases.

One song that has a profanity in its title includes Jay-Z lashing out at the Grammys. He was the top nominee at February’s awards show, but left empty-handed.

The rapper also says he turned down the NFL Super Bowl halftime show, rapping that the league needs him more than he needs them.

Blue Ivy ends the song “BOSS” with a shout-out to her 1-year-old brother and sister, Rumi and Sir.

In 2013, Beyonce released the self-titled album “Beyonce” without any notice.

Art That’ll Truly Move You

Brilliant swatches of silver. Splashes of white paint on a deep, dark blue background. Flashes of lime green and fluorescent orange pop in contrast to the city’s black asphalt. These eye-catching displays of color can now be found on four unique canvases — each complete with two wheels, pedal-powered lights, a basket, a bell and a lock.

That’s because Kaiser Permanente in Colorado and Denver B-cycle teamed up with local artists to transform four of the iconic red B-cycle bikes.

The bikes — hand-painted by Denver artists Robin Munro, Thomas Evans, Anthony Garcia and Pat Milbery — were unveiled at a special event on May 31.

“Art is such a key part of health,” said Jandel Allen-Davis, MD, Kaiser Permanente Colorado vice president of government, external relations, and research. “We know that one of the really important things to the sense of your well-being and health is the ability to creatively express yourself.”

Dr. Allen-Davis provided remarks at the unveiling and noted Kaiser Permanente’s longstanding relationship with Denver B-cycle — the longest of any organization for a bike share program in the United States.

“The intent of this art bike project is to encourage more Coloradans to get out, ride, and explore the RiNO, Globeville and Elyria-Swansea communities of Denver in a healthy and fun way,” said Dr. Allen-Davis.

B-cycle bike hand painted by artist Pat Milbery

This flashy piece of rolling artwork was hand-painted and created by Denver-artist, Pat Milbery.

Kaiser Permanente is also using the #artbike campaign as a way to shed light on several nonprofits in the area that help community members gain access to medical care, receive meals, and provide housing to the area’s homeless.

The bikes are expected to be available to rent through B-cycle by June 11 and are expected to be in service for up to seven months.

If you find one of these four bikes, be sure to take a picture of it and use the hashtag #artbike to spread the word.

Gwyneth Paltrow Reveals She And Fiance Brad Falchuk Are Yet To Move In Together And More!

The actress got candid about her romance with Brad Falchuk. Gwyneth Paltrow stopped by Howard Stern’s SiriusXM show today, and she opened up about her upcoming marriage with the TV producer. She also explained the reason why she took the decision to give marriage a second chance.

As you may already know, she and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin divorced back in 2014.

About the concept of marriage following the split, Gwyneth said: ‘I think that I’d like to give it a proper shot … for myself. I think there is something really beautiful about marriage.’

‘I think Brad’s someone who’s really intelligent, he is very emotionally intelligent. I think he is a good person to try this with. He is very self-aware. He has got a lot of emotional maturity.’

In addition, the actress also shared that she and her fiance are yet to move in together and that she is not really thinking of signing a prenup.

She mentioned Falchuk’s super successful shows, such as 9-1-1 and American Horror Story, saying she is not really so sure she is earning more than him.

When Stern asked about the way the couple manages their joint expenses, she replied: ‘Well, I think we are just going to try to do it in our own way.’

One thing is certain, however – they both agree that they do not want kids together!

Gwyneth is a mother of two – 12 year old son Moses and 14 year old daughter Apple while Falchuk has two kids as well – son Brody and daughter Isabella.

‘Neither of us want more kids. We are on the same team.’

‘It’s always tricky with kids and trying to gently blend families, and it’s hard,’ but Falchuk is apparently great with her children.

American Idol Judges Pull Surprise Move After Drag Queen Ada Vox Wasn’t Voted Into Next Round

Live television calls for some surprises every now and then.

On Monday’s first live episode of American Idol , judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan pulled a move that even host, Ryan Seacrest, was blown away by.

Though performer and drag queen Ada Vox wasn’t voted through to the next round by viewers after Sunday’s performance, she was given the chance to redeem herself. The judges, who could save four contestants who were not voted through, had the option of either saving Ada or sending her home – but immediately after Ada’s performance, they couldn’t hold back.

“I don’t know everything,” Perry told Ada. “But I think we do know talent when we see it.”

Without waiting for Seacrest’s directions, the three judges mixed things up and simultaneously pointed to where the Top 10 were seated and said she belonged there – no ifs, ands or buts.

“When the Ada moment came, it wasn’t just one person’s idea,” Perry, 33, told reporters after the show. “We all looked at each other and we saw the math … excuse us, we’re going to step in now. Were we allowed to do that? We found out we were.”

“We messed up the timetable a bit, but you know what it was, we felt so strongly about it, we didn’t have to wait for that vote,” added Richie, 68.

“Enough was enough and you put your foot down when it’s real,” said Perry. “We stand for truth and for justice.”

Ada, who has auditioned for Idol every season since the age of 16, previously told PEOPLE, “I have a much bigger skin this time around. I’m not afraid to hear the hate. It can bounce off of me and I can use it to build myself up.”

Also known as Adam Sanders when not in drag, Ada says, “Mr. Adam is the base of everything that I am. That’s just who I am and what I do every day of my life. Ms. Ada is kinda of the outer exterior, is a personification of the diva in Adam.”

Marcio Donaldson, Mara Justine, Jonny Brenns and Garrett Jacobs were eliminated leaving Maddie Poppe, Cade Foehner, Gabby Barrett, Caleb Lee Hutchinson, Michael J. Woodard, Catie Turner, Ada Vox, Jurnee, Michelle Sussett and Dennis Lorenzo as the Top 10.

American Idol airs on Sundays and Mondays at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.

3 Tech Tips to Help You Move

Relocating for business can be a massive hassle, especially if your current company isn’t involved in expenses or execution. Here are three tips that will make your transition much more seamless.

3 Tips on How to Relocate

Credit

Having a great score is a must. Make sure that your credit score is fully intact before you move. Try to get it as high as possible. Any high credit card balances? Pay them down. Any outstanding loans, make sure they are up to date. Pull your own records and do a check. Credit Karma is one service that can help. They give you a breakdown of everything that is going on and even suggests ways to fix any mishaps or consolidate any loans. Don’t wait for your new place to pull your score. By then it’s too late.

If you see anything out of the ordinary, feel free to dispute it. There are companies like eMillions+ that will do that for you for a reasonable price if you aren’t familiar with how to do it on your own. In the end, your credit means everything to your move; it will determine the amount of your deposits, both for your apartment and utilities and even if you get the place that you are eyeing.

Apartment Scouting 

When you are looking for a new place, you want to be extremely diligent. It’s very difficult if the place is somewhere across the country and you don’t have access to see it beforehand. Apartment List is a platform that allows you to input all of your living/home workspace criteria and shows you the best matches in your desired location. It’s also extremely visual, providing you with pictures and layouts of the location.

Once you’ve found several matches that fit your standards, call the location and ask the property manager to do a virtual tour for you or check the site to see if a virtual tour is already set up. Additionally, you can also check apartment ratings through Yelp or Google to see how other tenants have rated the apartment, home, and surrounding community.

Move Over Oprah and Jay-Z! The Roots of Black Wealth Run Deeper Than We Ever Dreamed

Quick: Name three black millionaires of the early 20th century.

John Johnson? Good guess, but wrong time. The founder of Chicago’s Ebony-centered empire began amassing his fortune mid-century.

Madame C.J. Walker, of eponymous haircare fame, is a hearty yes, but is that all you’ve got? If so, there’s a good reason for that, according to Shomari Wills, author of the upcoming book, Black Fortunes (Amistad). Walker wasn’t the first black person—or even the first woman of color—to amass a significant fortune. She was the first black millionaire who was bold enough to showcase it. Walker’s lavish lifestyle garnered a level of attention and notoriety that most of her rich predecessors and peers feared, and for good reason. Wealthy blacks were instant targets for violent, racist haters; con artists; and thieves.

If you’re struggling to imagine a class of black millionaires existed at a time when the last generation of those born into slavery was just reaching maturity, you’re not alone. But that’s precisely why Wills chose to excavate this long buried bit of black history.

 

Mapping the History of Black Wealth

Black Fortunes is relevant today because it is a story about the quest for and realization of the economic power of African Americans,” says the journalist. “I wanted to push back against the stereotype that African Americans aren’t enterprising or capable of cultivating and wielding financial power.” The book will dramatically expand not only readers’ perception of the post-slavery era but of the very history of black wealth in America.

Wills’s ode to the nation’s first-known, post-slavery titans, a few of whom reside in his own family tree, concentrates on six African Americans who escaped slavery and became millionaires. In the telling, Wills illuminates several other stories of of incredible fortitude, business savvy, and good luck that led to degrees of wealth that would rival the fortunes of today’s most outsized African American successes including Oprah, Jay-Z and Beyoncé.

“The figures I ended up writing about were not just pioneers but some of the most remarkable business people I’ve ever studied,” Wills said in an email answering questions about his upcoming book. “They built their business empires during a time when African Americans faced bondage, discrimination, and disenfranchisement. They didn’t just rise past slavery and servitude but to the highest realms of wealth and influence in society in 19th and early 20th century.”

The history mined in Black Fortunes will come as a revelation to many who will be shocked to learn that there was a black wealth class immediately after slavery. However, Wills grew up with a keen awareness of this piece of history, which most historians have at best ignored.

“I always knew of my great-great-great uncle John Drew (a millionaire entrepreneur) and his brother Simon Drew (my great-great-grandfather, who was also a wealthy entrepreneur) through stories passed down from my mother,” says Wills. “I was amazed by their stories and wanted to try and share them.”

 

The Earliest Black Sports Team Owner?

Yet even Wills didn’t learn the details of how his own ancestors accumulated their wealth until he started researching the book. “It turns out their father, a farmer, was one of the first black men in Virginia to own property,” Wills explains. “He let his sons sell his land when he grew tired of farming. John and Simon Drew then used the money to open businesses around the turn of the century.

“John Drew used his portion to start a bus line in Philadelphia around 1910 and invest in securities. He did well in the bull market of the late 1920s and pulled his money out of the stock market right before the crash in 1929. John walked away with close to a million dollars at the time and, after his windfall, retired and bought a Negro League baseball team.”

Sadly, John Drew ended up losing a good deal of his wealth when the Negro League folded after MLB integrated. “The integration of the major leagues was a great triumph, but also a bit of a tragedy for the Negro League and its black coaches, owners, and executives.”

 

A Cautionary Tale

Black Fortunes is a classic story of black resilience and the determination to upend a racist social order in the most meaningful, quantifiable way, but it’s also a cautionary tale about the unique challenges African Americans face in trying to build and sustain wealth, especially when it comes to passing it from one generation to the next.

Some of the Drew brothers’ remaining money and real estate were inherited by Wills’s mother and aunt, but, the author laments, “it was nothing close to what they had at their peak.”  Noting that since Reconstruction, African Americans have invested more of their net worth in real estate more than any other group, the 2008 financial crisis dealt a critical blow to that tradition and today, black home ownership is at 43%, an all-time low.

Drake’s Next Career Move May Be in Sports Reporting

Last month, Aubrey “Drake” Graham shocked the world when he announced that he is planning to take a break from music in order to take over Hollywood. During a featured interview with The Hollywood Reporter, he revealed that he is partnering with Apple Inc., Netflix, and major film studios to star in and produce his own video content. Now, it appears the 31-year-old rap star is exploring another career lane outside of music: sports reporting.

After watching the Raptors defeat the Charlotte Hornets game in Toronto last Wednesday, the Canadian artist stepped onto the court to interview players from his favorite NBA team. However, while speaking with Kyle Lowry, the musician made the rookie mistake of holding the mic toward himself while Lowry was answering a question. “So Kyle, you had 36, five, and six tonight. I just want to know, what prompts a performance like that? Season-high?” asked the “Hotline Bling” rapper. “I watch a lot of Instagram. And I seen you singing last night, so, that kind of helped me out a little bit. I didn’t know you could sing still,” teased Lowry in response. “Ah, thank you. Very nice of you,” Drake snarked.

The actor-turned-rapper also provided commentary during the game, poking fun at Jeremy Lamb’s leg tattoo.

“I feel like Jeremy Lamb has the answers to the third quarter woes tattooed on his right leg. It’s cryptic. It’s cryptic,” Drake said. “It’s drawing me in, boys. I don’t know. Something about it. What is that? What do you ask for when you get that? Give me the Da Vinci Code.”

Watch a few fun moments from the Raptors-Hornets game below.


The Raptors have struggled in third quarters so far this season. Devlin asked Drake what the answer was to their struggles. Apparently, according to Drake, the answer is mapped out on Jeremy Lamb’s leg tattoo.

“I feel like Jeremy Lamb has the answers to the third quarter woes tattooed on his right leg. It’s cryptic. It’s cryptic,” Drake said. “It’s drawing me in, boys. I don’t know. Something about it. What is that? What do you ask for when you get that? Give me the Da Vinci Code.”

In ‘Battlefront II’s Wake, More Governments Move Towards Regulating Loot Boxes

More governments around the globe have clarified their stances on loot boxes as a form of gambling.

Belgium is the first Western country to definitively state that loot boxes are gambling and call for their regulation. Its investigation, launched a week ago, concluded that “the mixing of money and addiction is gambling.”

The Minister of Justice, Koen Greens, added that “Mixing gambling and gaming, especially at a young age, is dangerous for the mental health of the child.”

The country will be going through the European Union to ban the sale of virtual items when you don’t know exactly what you’re buying.

Meanwhile in the United States, Hawaii is leading the charge in eliminating gambling from games. Representative Chris Lee (D) had some very strong words in the below video:

He specifically refers to EA’s Battlefront II and the recent controversy surrounding its loot boxes that gave gameplay advantages. At least, until they pulled all microtransactions.

However, it’s good to see that he’s focused not just on one game, but the actual predatory practices. EA certainly doesn’t have a monopoly on those.

The Australian state of Victoria has weighed in, with a strategic analyst at the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation releasing a statement saying the office of Victoria does consider this a gambling activity. What is unclear, it says, is the issue of jurisdiction and what powers the state has to regulate it.

In the words of the strategic analyst:

What occurs with “loot boxes” does constitute gambling by the definition of the Victorian Legislation. Unfortunately where the complexity arises is in jurisdiction and our powers to investigate.

Legislation has not moved as quick as the technology; at both State and Federal level we are not necessarily equipped to determine the legality of these practices in lieu of the fact the entities responsible are overseas.

One relevant factor seems to be whether or not the provider is overseas or has “set up shop” in Victoria. It’s unclear whether hosting game servers constitutes that or not.

Another Australian state, Queensland, isn’t willing to go as far. The Office of Liquor and Gaming Regulation has said it doesn’t consider loot boxes to be the same as a “gaming machine” — or, slot machine — and can’t say whether it’s outright “gambling.”

China has had legislation on random chance in videogames for a while now, forcing publishers to disclose the odds of receiving any particular item when putting forward real money.

Recently, the ESRB – the ratings body in North America – stated it does not consider loot boxes to be gambling. The European equivalent, PEGI, has deferred the issue to individual gambling commissions in the region. It just got its first strong answer from Belgium.

Dr. Brown’s makes it easy to move from a bottle to a sippy cup

by

Kelly Wilbanks

posted in Products

My third baby is following quickly on the heels of her older sisters: She’s crawling earlier, eating sooner, and wants to be part of any activity going on. That means it’s getting harder to nurse her if her siblings are anywhere nearby.

She’s 9 months old and we’ve started introducing solids — well, more accurately, she began slamming her hand on the table and screaming until I would feed her bits from my plate. Though she’s transitioning to eating solids, I know she’ll still benefit from whatever breast milk I can give her.

Not only is my milk full of the nutrition she needs, it also has antibodies to fight against the germs hitching a ride on my kindergartner each day. My breast milk will be what gets her through the cold and flu season.

But she’s so busy and distracted by her siblings that it’s getting harder to keep her attention long enough to give her a good feeding during the day. That’s where I’ve found Dr. Brown’s 2-in-1 Transition Bottle Kit and Sippy Spouts helpful. She wants to figure out how to make it work so it holds her attention. I’ve begun giving her bottles with my breast milk and letting her practice the sippy cup version with water.

During this season of transition it’s felt like an olive branch between us. I can pump and have that process only take a few minutes rather than trying to get through a frustrating nursing session. She still gets the nutrients and antibodies she needs and she can begin moving towards that independence she (and I) sort of crave at this point.

She still loves her nighttime feedings and I still enjoy that bond and holding her close without her sisters crashing the party. My baby is just growing up. She needs me, but she needs to develop hand/eye coordination and become the busy toddler she’s turning into.

baby-using-sippy-cup-dr.browns-transitioning

Each Dr. Brown’s 2-in-1 Transition Bottle Kit includes all of the items you see in the photo to the left below: bottle, cleaning brush, nipple ring, internal vent system, bottle nipple, sippy cup nipple, and a lid. I love that it’s all included so we’re ready to give her what she needs when she needs it.

Both the bottle and the sippy are easy for my daughter to grasp, even though she is just beginning to learn. I can tell she’s just as proud of using her new sippy cup as she is of crawling across the living room. Sometimes she’s dragging it with her or knocking it over so I’m glad it’s spill-proof too.

transition-bottle-collage

Here’s an inside tip: you can use the lid and sippy cup spout with the 4-ounce version of the bottle body as well. I had one on hand and tried it out. Since my daughter is just becoming dextrous, we found the smaller bottle is even easier for her to handle.

dr. browns wideneck transitions bottle

My teething baby loved the soft spout on both the nipple and the sippy spout; I loved that it’s 100 percent silicone and BPA-free. Another thing I love: it’s easy to clean. I can’t hand-wash everything (actually sometimes I can barely run loads of dishes) so the fact that I can wash these on the top rack of my dishwasher is so helpful.

baby-using-bottle

I personally like anything that can serve two purposes and both versions are in use right now. Heck, when we can’t find my 2-year-old daughter’s sippy cup we borrow her little sister’s, so the cup spans multiple ages and multiple children. I’m glad I’ll have these cups on hand as she grows and transitions from bottle to cup, and I’m sure she’ll continue to love using them too.

What age did your baby transition to a sippy cup?

Space makes astronauts’ brains move, and scientists can’t tell if that’s bad or not

astronaut brains

If you were about to embark on a journey into outer space there’s probably plenty of things that would be running through your mind. Whether one of the most vital organs in your body would go on an adventure of its own is probably not one of those things, but new research published in the New England Journal of Medicine suggests that perhaps it should be.

The study, which focused on observations of astronauts brains before and after significant trips into zero gravity, revealed that the position of a person’s brain inside of their skull actually shifts over time thanks to the fact that gravity no longer pushes down on it. That’s a pretty significant finding, but the biggest question still remains unanswered: is that a bad thing, and if so, how bad?

Back On? Scottie and Larsa Pippen Move to Los Angeles Together, Put Divorce on Hold [Video]

Scottie and Larsa Pippen are working things out — or at least they’re trying to.

The couple has moved to Los Angeles as a family to ‘figure things out.’

via TMZ:

In fact, the two are already having couples outings in Beverly Hills — where they got his and her manicures on Monday. Doesn’t get more “together” than that.

Here’s the deal …  it’s been almost a year since Scottie filed divorce docs after 19 years of marriage. Since then, the two have been on-again, off-again in an effort to work things out. 

It seemed things were finally dunzo in April when they mutually decided to move forward with the divorce — but once again, things changed. 

The two recently moved the family from Miami to L.A. — in part due to the fact their basketball star son Scotty has transferred to Sierra Canyon, one of the top basketball programs in the country. 

Fun Fact: Kenyon Martin‘s son also hoops at S.C. and it’s also where the country’s #1 high school player, Marvin Bagley, played ball. 

We’re told both Scottie and Larsa are really trying to make things work this time around.  

Does this mean there’s still hope for La La and Carmelo Anthony?

Donald Trump Elected President; Other Planets Move Away From Earth

Following Donald Trump’s stunning victory as President of the United States, most of the planets in our solar system have decided to call it quits and move away from Earth. “I’m not exactly sure how we will break our orbit, but we will find a way–I repeat, we will find a way,” said XenianX-Five, speaking in an emergency session of the High Exalted Tribunal of Venus. “Earth has been a nice neighbor and all, but to quote one of its more prominent citizens: good night, and good luck.”

Only Pluto remains undecided about remaining where it is, although the dwarf planet is, admittedly, still in the throes of a hangover from yesterday’s events. “Yeah, like, we started watching CNN on the Time-Warner–whoops, I mean, the Spectrum–galactic carrier wave and once Trump got Florida, we got hammered,” says Pluto. “But, you know, maybe it won’t be so bad. I mean, Bryan Cranston, Amy Schumer, and Jon Stewart will be coming here any day, so that’s pretty cool, right?”

Crossing Continents: How to Move a Marriage

“Never take a damaged marriage overseas,” they told me at the spouse orientation the year my husband joined the Diplomatic Security Service.

Diplomatic Security, or DSS, is a little-known branch of the State Department that is responsible, as the name suggests, for keeping diplomats and other Americans safe overseas. DS agents like my husband are posted to Embassies overseas, sometimes alone, sometimes with their families. It’s a high-stress, high-stakes job (think Benghazi) involving long hours in strange cities, doing things you can’t necessarily tell your spouse about.

So this marriage advice, coming from a veteran DS spouse, made a lot of sense. Even way back then I knew that the constant moves required in the Foreign Service, the strange hours, the secrecy required of the job, would take a toll on the strongest marriage, so I could understand that a damaged marriage might not survive a Foreign Service career.

But that was back in the last century, before we’d had a baby. Before we’d had four babies, to be more exact. Before we’d suffered two miscarriages. Before we’d seen one baby through a serious illness. Before we’d been PNG’ed (that means “kicked out,” for all of you non-diplomats) from one country, and medically evacuated from another. Before I lost my hearing to a mysterious virus in China. Before he was selected for an unaccompanied tour in Iraq, leaving me and the four kids behind to fend for ourselves in Amman, Jordan.

Back then, a century ago, our marriage was as close to perfect as it is possible to get, with lots of hand holding and talk of “the future,” that shiny, happy unknown. Advice about damaged marriages had nothing to do with my reality, though I could certainly understand how it might apply to others. I nodded my head as she spoke, like everyone else in the room, but really, I was in a hurry to move on to more pertinent information, like how to host a dinner party, or how to ship a car overseas.

Now, though. Now, when I’m 16 years into the Foreign Service and 20 years into married life, I’ve had loads of time to contemplate that advice, and honestly, it’s the only advice I remember clearly from that day. Hosting a dinner party is the easiest part of the lifestyle. Staying married? Not so much.

In the end, it turns out that every Foreign Service marriage is damaged in some way. All of our marriages have places where they have been bent, bruised and maybe even broken over the passage of years and tours. The strain of the constant moves, the stress of constantly reinventing yourself, the feelings of inadequacy brought on in each new country, where you have to learn to talk and cook and drive anew – all of this weighs down our families, threatening at times to crush us.

Many of the broken bits I find in my relationship with my husband suffered their damage at the hands of the Foreign Service. My married life flashes before my eyes, and I see that time I was so very angry – over what, exactly, I can’t remember now – that I wanted to storm out of the house… but I had nowhere to go, no friends at all to run to, because we were brand new to the city. I remember the time I raged internally because I was stuck driving around our new middle eastern city, trying to find the emergency room, when he was nowhere to be found. I think back to the day they loaded me onto a tiny medevac plane, when I was soaked in blood from the waist down after a misdiagnosis led to a miscarriage – I’d only been in Central Asia for 13 days, and there was nothing he could do to help me except pray I didn’t bleed to death before we got to a country where they could operate on me. I remember when he was home from Baghdad for a brief visit, and I just sat sobbing on the bed, blubbering about how I couldn’t do it, and I wasn’t going to do it anymore, whatever “it” was. He looked on, scared and helpless, not quite even sure what was bothering me.

Yet here we still are.

All around me, I see friends giving up on crumbling marriages – not just in the Foreign Service, but in the regular world, too. Sometimes, when a friend or colleague announces her separation, I’m not surprised – from the outside, it was obvious that the relationship had moved irretrievably beyond the breaking point. Other times, though, I’m shocked – if it could happen to her, what’s to keep me safe?

Here’s the thing. Being sent to a new country with your same ole spouse can be a sort of living hell if you let it. Because you’re forced to rely solely on each other: no grandparents, no old friends, no aunts to rely on; nobody to come rescue you from each other. It’s just you and him, alone against the Foreign Affairs Manual. And at each new post, your relationship changes, in big ways and small. Sometimes I find work: an equal partner! Other times, there is no work to be had, and I have to rely on him to turn in the work orders, to cash the checks, to sign up for internet service. And he has to rely on me, too: to figure things out on my own without too much anxiety, to find the stores and make the friends and enroll in the schools. To be happy, no matter what craziness surrounds me. Because, like it or not, as the “trailing spouse,” I’m the backbone of the family. If that backbone snaps, well, it’s all over. And that’s a terrible, intimidating responsibility when you arrive in a new place, with not a word of the local language, a nasty case of jetlag and four lonely children. It’s hard to be the backbone when your husband is posted in a war zone and you have sick kids and a full-time job. It’s hard to not blame him for getting you in this mess.

I look back at the ravages wrought on my marriage by the Foreign Service, and yes, some of it will always seem awful. Some of it seems funny, or even ridiculous, in hindsight. But all of it – the whole collection of dents, the tarnished spots, everything ugly – all of it together has built this marriage, this crazy life of ours.

So yes, you could say that a decade and a half after that opening day lecture, I now recognize that my marriage is as banged-up as everyone else’s. It’s definitely not the same marriage I carried – carefully, hopefully – into the Foreign Service all those years ago.

But, you know what? We may have argued on that humid summer day about how exactly we should get to the top of the Great Wall of China, but we got there, and back again, together. I gripped the armrest and told him to slow down as he wound down that hill toward Tel Aviv, but he got us there safely in the end, and we held hands as we looked at the broad expanse of the Mediterranean, rolling our eyes as the kids argued about who was the first to touch the water. When I sat sobbing on the bed during his visit from Baghdad, he had no idea what the problem was. But he sat with me and let me finish, and then he kissed me and set about figuring out how to make it better. For me. For us.

We’re damaged, sure. But we’re damaged in the best possible way, together.
