‘The Pain Is Too Much.’ Andy Murray Says Australian Open Could Be His Last Tournament

(MELBOURNE, Australia) — A tearful Andy Murray says the Australian Open could be his last tournament because of a hip injury that has hampered him for almost two years.

The three-time Grand Slam champion says he plans to start his opening match against No. 22-ranked Roberto Bautista Agut at the Australian Open, where he has reached the final five times but never won the title.

“I’m going to play (in Australia) — I can still play to the level,” Murray said. “Not a level I’m happy playing at — but also, it’s not just that. The pain is too much really.”

Murray had right hip surgery in January 2018 and, after two brief attempts to return to the tour, played only 12 matches in the year.

He returned at the Brisbane International last week, where he won his opening match but lost in the second round to Daniil Medvedev, showing visible signs of limping between points.

The 31-year-old Murray, who ended long Grand Slam droughts for British men and also won the Olympic gold medal, had hoped to play the first half of 2019 and make a run at Wimbledon.

“That’s where I’d like to stop playing … but I’m also not certain I’m able to do that,” Murray said. “I don’t want to continue playing that way. I’ve tried everything I could to get it right and that hasn’t worked.”

Murray held a news conference Friday at Melbourne Park, and had to leave the room for a while soon after it started to compose himself as he fronted the media.

He said he’s considering another hip operation, more to improve his quality of life than as a way to return to the top level in tennis.

The Australian Open starts Monday.

One day after having to undergo an emergency procedure after giving birth to her daughter, it looks like Remy Ma is finally back home.

On Thursday (Dec. 20), the femcee posted a post-delivery pic of her and her husband Papoose looking healthy and happy.

“I’m FINALLY back home and doing much better. The baby has been PERFECTLY fine since being born Dec. 14th and I’m resting & recovering at home. (Pap is VERY happy, on cloud 9,999😊),” the new mother wrote on Instagram.

Not going into any detail about her surgery, she also thanked everyone for checking in on her family and sending them well-wishes.

“Thank you to all of our family, friends, and loved ones who reached out- Sorry for not responding to texts and/or calls – I physically was not able to and my husband @papoosepapoose was concerned & worried about me all while looking after our “Golden Child.”

Remy also showed love to her fans and the hospital staff that took such good care of her.

“Also, thank you to all the fans who sent their love and prayers🙏🏽 We would also like to thank the ENTIRE staff at the hospital (doctors, nurses, aides, even the housekeeping) as well as the AMAZING security team ; not only did you all make sure my family was well taken care of but everyone was very professional and extremely respectful & protective of our privacy; we truly appreciate it – 💋

with love, The Mackies #RemAndPap #BlackLove #RemyMa #MeetTheMackies #TheGoldenChild #RemyMafia (I luv y’all 😘).”

As we previously reported, days after giving birth to her and Papoose’s “Golden Child,” Remy Ma was rushed back to the hospital due to complications from her delivery.

According to TMZ, the rapper was admitted back into the hospital to endure emergency surgery after suffering excessive bleeding on Tuesday night. The site reported that her procedure was a success thanks to blood transfusions.

On December 14, after what Papoose described as a “tough labor,” Remy gave birth to a little girl. The couple has yet to release a picture of their daughter or share her name with the public.

‘True Blood’ 10 Years On: Too Much Sex Killed It

Vampires were having quite the renaissance in 2008. In cinemas, director Tomas Alfredson’s adaptation of John Ajvide Lindqvist’s 2004 novel Let The Right One In was proving an unexpected hit. In a similar vein – pun absolutely intended – enjoying an even richer level of success was another page-to-screen adaptation, this being the year in which the first Twilight movie debuted in cinemas. Twilight was a phenomenon. If the source material was popular, author Stephenie Meyers’ books selling well in excess of 100 million copies, the films were something else, pulling in over 3 billion dollars.

Within the world of TV, the CW’s adaptation of writer L.J Smith’s young adult series The Vampire Diaries was gearing up to be launched in the September of the following year. The BBC’s brilliant Being Human, a kitchen-sink drama about a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost taking part in a Bristol-based flat share, was already there. And then, in September, from HBO and the pen of Six Feet Under creator Alan Ball, tapping into the pre-existing audience of Charlaine Harris’s The Southern Vampire Mysteries novels, from which the show was adapted, there was True Blood. Vampires were everywhere.

In True Blood’s case, ‘everywhere’ mostly means ‘in bed’. From the opening credits onwards, country singer Jace Everett’s swampy 2005 single “Bad Things” purring the shows desire to do ‘bad things with you’, True Blood was absolutely filthy. There were threesomes. Foursomes. Fivesomes. In forests. In cemeteries. Glowing fairy orgasms! Werewolf-on-werewolf action! And there was an awful lot of industrial metal. It took just seven episodes of Season 1 for two characters, Jason and Amy, to have sex on V (that being vampire blood, a drug which appears to the precise meeting point between ecstasy and LSD), causing the two of them to have sex while flying.

Sexual Metaphors

“Vampires are total sexual metaphors,” said showrunner Alan Ball at the time, “there’s just no way around that”. It’s hard to argue otherwise. From the off, Bram Stoker’s Dracula was a story about Victorian-era anxieties like syphilis and changing gender roles as much as it was about a dude who comes and bites you in the night. And with new eras come new concerns. Despite being pitched at a young audience, even Twilight’s success concerned sex, or rather the lack of it, Mormon Stephanie Meyer creating perhaps the first prudish vampire tale ever (of course, the more sinister reading, is that a woman’s lust (Bella being totally up for doing the thing) is to be regulated by a man (Edward blocking his own cock), but let’s save that one for another time).

True Blood, the story of what happens when vampires come out of the shadows, in the wake of the development and industrialisation of synthetic blood – the titular Tru Blood, note the lack of ‘e’ – was full of metaphor. The complexities of questions posed from the off was a huge reason why the show appealed. Some deduced this was all metaphor for people living with AIDS. Some thought it was about gay rights – the vampire-integration-protesting-Jesus-nut placards that roared ‘God Hates Fangs’ felt like it backed that theory up. Yet even away from sex, there was plenty of allegory. Maybe this was all about race. The fact the show was set in the deep south of America suggested it might be. Vampire Bill even fought for the confederates during the Civil War.

Where Did It All Go Wrong? Here…

In the end, True Blood wasn’t really about any of these things, or if it was, it approached such nuanced themes with the grace of a bulldozer. Scenes in which vampires were kidnapped and killed by humans opposed to their integration into society were obvious nods to the lynching of Jim Crow-era black people, a metaphor confused by the fact many of the vampires wanted a human holocaust, so who are we really rooting for here? Even when the show approached more personal issues it goofed up. It was hard to feel for anyone addicted to V when everyone on it was having such a bloody lovely time.

Ultimately, before the show could explore any of these themes further, it doomed itself by muddying the premise that had brought its audience in to begin with. We came for a show that had one central intriguing theme. We stuck it out through the introduction of werewolves, shapeshifters and witch doctors. We were really clinging on by the time Sookie realised she was a fairy (“I’m a fairy? How f—ing lame…” Yes Sookie, quite). But by the time the show decided to add werepanthers to the mix? Well, life’s too short, it really is…

Few TV shows’ descent into tedium have been as disappointing as True Blood’s was. In the beginning, there was much to love. Sookie was an extremely likable lead. Trying to work out what Bill’s accent would do on any given week was a lot of fun. Medium Lafayette (played with such charm by the late Nelsan Ellis) is one of the decades great small screen characters. The show gave the world Alexander Skarsgård. The character of a bequiffed 3,000-year-old ancient vampire king, Russell Edgington, was an absolute blast. But after three seasons, it was clear the show had absolutely no idea where it was going. After five — Alan Ball’s last season, incidentally — poor writing, reduced production values and key plot points that were picked up and discarded within an episode were becoming commonplace. Ultimately, True Blood lasted seven seasons, with former Friends writer Brian Buckner helming the last two.

Joss Whedon’s immortal Buffy The Vampire Slayer lasted one season more than True Blood. It was also a show that could be pretty sexy when it wanted to be, and yet rarely dragged, covered big themes well, and left a fandom aching when it ceased to be. Because here’s the thing with sex. It’s great and all, but after a while, it gets boring if you don’t have anything to talk about between the messy bits. Vampires should never be boring. By the end of True Blood, the only thing its fandom was aching for was to plunge a stake into its tired heart.

Places that are much less impressive in real life

ADVERTISEMENT


When it comes to finding your next holiday destination, you often look online to find the best attractions that country or city has to offer. When you type in the city name, your search will probably come up with some of the most famous, or some of the most iconic places in that area. And that’s what you want, right? You want to see the best of the best. But sometimes, the places that make an area famous are much less impressive in real life….

Hollywood’s Walk of Fame

Ahhhh, Hollywood. Where all of your favorite celebrities walk the streets, and you bump into your favorite singer while buying your morning coffee. Sounds great. Unfortunately, this rarely ever happens. Most visitors who travel to Hollywood always want to see one thing before they leave – the Hollywood Walk of Fame. This walkway is one of the only places in the world where the best names from stage and screen come together, and it’s iconic. But is it really that impressive in real life? The simple answer is no. This 1.3-mile walkway will definitely tire you out, and for what? The celebrities don’t stand by their stars waiting for tourists to pass by. In reality, it really is just a bunch of stones.

Stonehenge

Stonehenge in Wiltshire, England is genuinely one of the most breathtaking historical monuments when you see it on television, or when someone takes an incredible picture at dawn. And it’s true. The whole concept behind Stonehenge is extraordinary, with scientists believing the 6 ft and 25-ton stones to have been placed there by hand around 3000 BC. However, there are still so many questions surrounding the heritage site, that researchers are still baffled by the use and the construction of Stonehenge. It is definitely a must-see at some point in your life, but don’t rush. As much as the site is beautiful, it has become a tourist trap. Nowadays, tourists have to stay put on a designated walkway (that is not at all close) around the stones – that’s if you can move through the crowds of people that rock up each day.

Four Corners Monument

The Four Corners Monument marks the intersections between four states – New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona, and Utah and is the only place in the United States that offers this intersection. So it must feel pretty awesome to stand in four states at once, right? Well, for about two seconds it does. The Four Corners Monument is in the middle of the Ute Mountain Ute Tribe Reservation, and as you can guess from the name, it’s not exactly next to your local Mcdonald’s. Instead, it is in the middle of nowhere. The monument is around 30 miles away from anything else significant, and you’ll feel pretty silly once you turn up to a parking lot (where the monument is located), wait in line to take a picture with your feet on the monument, only to realize historians had made a mistake and that the actual intersection is around 1,807 feet west of the fake intersection.

Statue of the Little Mermaid

The Statue of the Little Mermaid is one of the most iconic monuments in Copenhagen, and people travel from across the world to view the statue based on the famous Hans Christian Anderson fairytale. The Mermaid sculpture, which was unveiled in 1913, sits on top of a rock by the water along the Langelinie Promenade, and it really is quite spectacular to look at – especially if you’ve seen the photos. However, save your money and avoid visiting it, because it isn’t even the original sculpture! The original monument was damaged so many times by vandals and political activists that the sculpture was replaced by a replica many years ago. As if that wasn’t enough to dissuade people, you’ll have to fight your way through hoards of people to get a good look-see.

Champs-Élysées

When you think of Paris, you think of the Eiffel Tower, the River Seine, the Louvre and all things beautiful. Including the Champs-Élysées. As the most famous street and road in Paris, thousands of tourists flock to this 1.2-mile long street to check out the theaters, the cafés, the beautiful gardens, the impressive monuments and the pièce de résistance at the end… the Arc de Triomphe. Ahhhh, it must be so quiet and majestic, right? Wrong. As one of the busiest roads in Paris, Champs-Élysées is full of cars and traffic at all hours of the day – and they even drive straight through the Arc de Triomphe! If you wanted to get stuck in a traffic jam, you could have stayed at home.

So next time you’re tempted to check out some of these places, think about all of the other people who have the same idea as you. Instead, try and find some more unusual and less famous alternatives.

Amy Schumer Shares Ultrasound Video of Her Baby: ‘It Has So Much Energy — That’s Why I’m Puking’

Say hello to Amy Schumer‘s baby on the way!

The pregnant actress and comedian, 37, shared an ultrasound video on Instagram Monday, over two weeks after her appointment as the footage was dated Oct. 16.

“It’s moving all around! Oh my God, oh my God, see it has so much energy — that’s why I’m puking every day,” Schumer said as she excitedly watched the screen, which showed her child’s arms and legs in motion.

Much like her Oct. 22 pregnancy announcement, the video had a secondary purpose as Schumer urged fans and followers to vote in the Nov. 6 midterm elections.

“Happy Election Eve!” the mother-to-be, who is married to chef Chris Fischer, captioned her ultrasound footage. “You can look up your polling place + hours by texting LOCATION to 21333 And you can look up a sample ballot to be prepared at vote411.org/ballot Make a plan to #vote and let’s make history tomorrow!”

In addition to recently showing off her baby bump for the first time on Instagram, Schumer has continued to update her fans about her pregnancy.

On Friday, the I Feel Pretty star discussed being in her second trimester while performing stand up in Las Vegas. “I don’t like it,” she said, later adding, “I’ve had a really tough pregnancy so far.”

Joking that she has “a half a year” left of pregnancy, Schumer also said everyone is a “psychic” when it comes to the sex of her baby. “It’s a 50/50 shot. It’s better odds than in Vegas. I don’t know what it’s going to be. I think it’s going to be a baby,” she said.

Schumer’s sister Kim Caramele recently joked about her sibling and brother-in-law becoming first-time parents.

“They are going to be UNBEARABLE parents,” Caramele captioned a photo of Schumer and Fischer taking pictures of their dog Tatiana dressed in a lamb costume for Halloween.

Here’s How Much You Can Contribute to 401(k)s and IRAs in 2019

If you’re all about saving for retirement and putting away as much as you can, we’ve got some good news.

Starting in 2019, you can contribute $ 500 more to your 401(k) and individual retirement account (IRA) than you were allowed to in 2018.

New 401(k) and IRA Contribution Limits

In 2019, the U.S. government will raise the personal 401(k) contribution max from $ 18,500 to $ 19,000 annually. The annual contribution max for IRA accounts will also increase, from $ 5,500 to $ 6,000. That’s an extra $ 1,000 that you can tuck away and have working for you and your future.

The 401(k) maximum does not include employer contributions, so your freebie dough is off the hook.

The increase means your total contribution allowance is $ 25,000 for 2019.

Sweet, right?

OK, we’ll be real. Not many of us are putting away that much money. If you get paid every two weeks like most of us, you’re looking at more than $ 1,000 taken out of each paycheck to reach that lofty $ 25,000 by year’s end.

Another way to look at it is that if you make $ 125,000 annually, you can now stash a full 20% of your paycheck. What would that add up to, you ask?

If you were to start with no money and saved this much each year for 35 years, you’d have $ 665,000 before interest in your 401(k) and $ 193,000 before interest in your Roth IRA. Factor in a modest 6% return on investment, and the combined number jumps to just under $ 3 million. That’s a nice little chunk of change for your golden years.

The trick is to not dip into your retirement savings before you retire.

But let’s face it: Most of us don’t earn $ 125,000 a year and don’t put 20% of our salaries in our retirement accounts.

For now, contribute as much as you can to your 401(k) without putting your financial health at risk. A good starting point is to see how much your employer matches and try to at least hit that number. Here’s a simple 401(k) guide to get you jump started.

Consider opening a traditional or Roth IRA account if you don’t have one already.

Who knows? Perhaps you’ll reach that $ 25,000 annual contribution ceiling eventually. #lifegoals

How much will these suspensions hurt the Lakers and Rockets?

What impact will suspensions for Brandon Ingram and Rajon Rondo of the  Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul have? As expected, the NBA levied suspensions Sunday in the wake of the altercation during Saturday night’s Rockets win that started with Ingram pushing James Harden and saw both Paul and Rondo throw punches after Paul felt Rondo spit on him intentionally. How will Houston and L.A. replace their suspended players and what kind of difference might that make over the next few games? Let’s take a look. Bad timing for Lakers While there’s never a good time to lose two starters to suspensions, this is a particularly bad one for the Lakers.

New study says not exercising is pretty much the worst thing you can possibly do

It’s no secret that there are a lot of things that can potentially impact your overall health. What food you eat, what habits you adopt or drop, and even how much sleep you get can have serious impacts on your wellbeing, but a new study by cardiologists reveals that of all the things you can do that might negatively impact your health, a sedentary lifestyle is the most deadly.

The research, which was published in JAMA Network Open, surveyed a whopping 122,007 patients between early 1991 and late 2014. The doctors recorded fitness levels of the individuals and then followed up to track mortality rates. The numbers were, as one of the authors of the paper put it, “extremely surprising.”

Stephen Colbert doesn’t think much of Trump’s ‘natural instinct for science’

TwitterFacebook

Despite his resistance to believing climate change is manmade, which is in opposition to his scientists’ beliefs, Donald Trump told the Associated Press yesterday that he has a “natural instinct for science.”

It’s because of the president’s uncle, MIT professor Dr. John Trump, who it turns out he didn’t talk to “about this particular subject.”

“Why did you bring up your science uncle if you’ve never talked to him about science?” Colbert asked on The Late Show Wednesday night.

“And second, you have a natural instinct for science? That’s not how knowledge works. You don’t inherit it from your uncle. The most you get from your uncle is your own nose back,” he joked. Read more…

How Much Do You Spend on Work Clothes?

how much do you spend on your work clothesHere’s a fun topic that we haven’t discussed in eons: How much do you spend on work clothes (as in, prices for individual clothing items)? What’s an average price you’re happy to pay for a pair of pants — for a sheath dress — for a blazer? I’m looking over my original answers from our original discussion on how much do you spend on clothes, and I’m a bit surprised I’m updating some of them:

Pants: $ 40–$ 200. There are a ton of great pants for $ 50 now, from Everlane to J.Crew Factory to Uniqlo to Express/Loft type stuff. Sales can still be had — I just got a pair of pants at Banana Republic for $ 11 a few weeks ago, although they were floral ankle pants, so kind of on the “fun” side of things. Of course everyone loves the Eileen Fisher magic pants, usually around $ 168, and a tailored wool pant like Lafayette 148 New York or something will obviously be more.

Skirts: $ 30–$ 300. I feel like I always see great deals on skirts these days, and there are a ton of reader favorite options for pencil skirts for work at really affordable prices.

Blouses/tops: $ 15–$ 60, or $ 125–$ 250. I’m putting two price ranges here because I think the first price range is the “normal” price I’d pay for a blouse or top for work, and the second price range would be the “oooh, want” price — where the blouse has an absolutely amazing pattern or is from a designer I’ve wanted for eons or something special. I’ve definitely seen them for more than $ 250 but probably wouldn’t pay that for a simple blouse. (Everyone’s favorite NYDJ blouse is often down to around $ 50, and the reader favorite Loft blouse is $ 59 full price.)

Sweaters: $ 100–$ 300. Personally, this is where a lot of my money goes — I’ve always preferred cashmere or merino or blends because they’re soft, durable, and pretty warm, whereas a lot of the more affordable cotton blends I’ve had haven’t done any of those things. I’d say that at this point in my life, having small kids means that there are definitely a lot of easy-to-wash, $ 15–$ 20 sweatshirts for weekend wear with the kids where I can just throw them in the washer and not worry, but my “nice sweater” collection is generally more expensive. (Also remember that because I’ve been building a sweater collection for years now, I can afford to stalk nicer sweaters on sale, so that helps.)

Dresses: $ 40–$ 300. The only reason that first number is so low is because I’ve gotten some great Lands’ End dresses at some really nice sale prices. For a basic sheath dress there are so many great options that I’d put the average price around $ 175–$ 250.

Suits: $ 200–$ 600. Something I was surprised at when we did our last roundup of the best women suits of 2018 was how the average price seems to have somewhat fallen — the first two categories were below $ 500 and there are a TON of options in there. (And honestly most of the suits in the next category, the $ 500–$ 1000 one, often go on sale so you can pick up a suit for under $ 500.)

Bags: I’m always fascinated to see how this is a hugely social decision — most women I know stick to a pretty narrow price range that their friends and family also buy in. Personally, I still tend to think of a “good” bag as costing between $ 200–$ 800 when new, but I’ve gotten some great deals on bags (including a recent $ 160 charity auction purchase of a Bottega Venetta!) that I consider myself lucky.

Jewelry: $ 20–$ 150 for a “spur of the moment” purchase, $ 150+++ for a planned purchase. I’ve been refreshing my jewelry collection of late and have found some great things on Etsy for under $ 80. I also like a lot of older Alexis Bittar pieces, so whenever I see one on Poshmark or whatever I snap it up if it speaks to me or fills a hole (like I was recently looking for a large red pendant necklace because I decided I need more red in my life). I tend to focus on necklaces these days, as I’ve avoided earrings for years because the kids yanked them, and I never quite got in the habit of mixing metals with my platinum wedding rings. I think I’ve mentioned this before, also: I have a lot of regret for the semi-precious and precious “good” jewelry I bought in my 20s at places like Macy’s — 98% of it never sees the light of day, but is worth next to nothing on the resale market.

How about you guys: How much do you spend on clothes for work? What’s the average price for you for specific items of clothing?
