Theresa May survived the confidence vote and will continue as Prime Minister

Here’s everything to know…

REX

Ever since Theresa May stepped into the role of Prime Minister following the divisive 2016 Brexit vote, it has been a turbulent ride.

Two years later and there are accusations of little progress made, with this Brexit appearing to be softer and slower than anyone could have predicted.

But today, after more than 48 letters of complaint sent to Graham Brady, it was announced that Theresa’s days at No.10 could be numbered as Tory MPs requested a vote of confidence in their leader, with a potential no confidence vote triggering a new leadership competition.

But the results are officially in, and May has survived the confidence vote.

The Prime Minister needed 159 votes to remain leader, something she succeeded, getting 200 votes, with 117 MPs voting against her.

‘Sir Graham Brady has confirmed that he has received 48 letters from Conservative MPs so there will now be a vote of confidence in my leadership of the Conservative party,’ Theresa May announced this morning. ‘I will contest that vote with everything I’ve got.’

‘Delivering the Brexit people voted for. Building a country that works for everyone. I have devoted myself unsparingly to these tasks ever since I became prime minister,’ May concluded. ‘And I stand ready to finish the job.’

The vote took place tonight between 6pm and 8pm, seeing Tory MPs reveal their trust in their leader.

Before the vote, Theresa reportedly told MPs that she would not fight the next election, and would step down before it.

The Prime Minister is now immune from leadership challenges for the next year.

Aquaman Amazon Prime

The next addition to the DC cinematic universe is set to hit theaters in the US a few days before Christmas, but Amazon Prime members are reportedly going to get a shot at seeing it early.

According to Screen Rant, members of Amazon’s Prime subscription service will be able to attend screenings of Aquaman a week before the US release at participating theaters, including ArcLight, Bow Tie Cinemas, Cinepolis, Regal Cinemas, Showcase Cinemas and Studio Movie Grill. Per Screen Rant, the movie represents DC’s next shot at trying to win the love of fans, even though reaction to DC movies generally pales in comparison to releases from Marvel. Which is why a move like this might be a smart play to excite fans early.

Amazon Announces Free Shipping for Holidays — No Prime Membership Needed

Amazon is the latest e-commerce retailer to offer free shipping on all pre-holiday purchases, regardless of membership status.

Amazon typically offers free two-day shipping to Prime members, who pay $ 119 for the privilege. Otherwise, shoppers must hit a $ 25 purchase minimum to access free shipping.

“All Amazon customers can enjoy free shipping with no minimum purchase amount on orders that will arrive in time for the Christmas holiday,” the company announced on its website.

It also noted that eligible items typically ship in five to eight days.

The promotion started Nov. 5 and is available “for a limited time.”

Amazon’s offer is likely in response to increasing competition from other retailers that hope to lure customers to their e-commerce options.

Target announced Oct. 23 that it would offer free two-day shipping to all online shoppers without requiring a minimum order size. That promotion began Nov. 1 and will continue through Dec. 22.  Target typically has a $ 35 minimum order requirement to access free shipping.

Meanwhile, Walmart announced the same day that it’s expanding its free two-day shipping option to Marketplace items sold by third parties.

“In the coming months, you will see millions of additional items with the two-day free shipping label,” the company announced. Walmart.com will still require a $ 35 minimum order for free two-day shipping.

Customers in search of the best shipping deal for their online holiday shopping should watch the fine print for deadlines and restrictions that could delay delivery of those gifts.

One Last Free-Shipping Hurrah?

These free shipping offers are enticing for customers, but retailers may not be so generous next holiday season.

The U.S. Postal Service has proposed a 9% to 12% increase for the parcel select shipping service used by Amazon for the last leg of delivery. FedEx also announced that ground and home delivery shipping rates will increase by an average of 4.9%.

These increases don’t go into effect until January 2019. But they surely have major e-commerce players preparing to adjust their shipping strategies or make up for the increase in other ways — potentially by increasing prices.

Meet the Photographer Who Caught Bob Dylan in His Prime

Courtesy Jerry Schatzberg

A creative career that arcs from accomplished photographer to celebrated filmmaker is hardly unique. Robert Frank, Chris Marker, and Stanley Kubrick, to name a few, all began as still photographers and then made the leap to moviemaking. But few artists have left as indelible a mark on both pursuits as Jerry Schatzberg. In the ’60s, he photographed cultural icons—Jimi Hendrix, Edie Sedgwick, Fidel Castro—for magazines like Esquire, Vogue, McCall’s, and LIFE. In the ’70s, his earliest movies—Puzzle of a Downfall Child (1970, with Faye Dunaway), The Panic in Needle Park (1971, with Al Pacino and Kitty Winn, who won Best Actress at Cannes), and Scarecrow (1973, with Pacino and Gene Hackman; Palme d’Or at Cannes)—would become touchstones of a fraught era.

But for sheer, sustained excellence, Schatzberg’s portraits of Bob Dylan stand alone. In an 18-month supernova of creative energy, from early 1965 through mid-1966, Dylan recorded and released three of the most influential albums ever made: Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited, and Blonde on Blonde. Schatzberg met Dylan in the midst of that astonishing run, during the Highway 61 sessions in New York in ’65, and photographed him through ’66. (The famous, out-of-focus portrait gracing the cover of Blonde on Blonde is Schatzberg’s.)

A beautiful new book, Dylan by Schatzberg (ACC Art Books), brims with the best of those pictures. In an interview with The Daily Beast, the 91-year-old Bronx native discusses the rewards and challenges of working with Dylan, the real story behind that Blonde on Blonde picture, and making peace with his own fame—or lack of it. The interview, conducted by phone and at the Upper West Side apartment where Schatzberg has lived for five decades, has been edited and condensed for clarity and brevity. — BC
