U.S. Open Player Hugs It Out With Rival After He Was Forced to Retire

Canadian tennis player Felix Auger-Aliassime was forced to pull out of the first-round of the 2018 U.S. Open due to health concerns brought on by the heat.

After splitting the first two sets of his opening match with fellow Canadian Denis Shapovalov on Monday, Auger-Aliassime tearfully retired from the tournament in the midst of the third set. The 18-year-old was suffering from tachycardia —a.k.a. an elevated heart rate—a condition that previously forced him to drop out of a 2017 Challenger event and is often exacerbated by heat.

Auger-Aliassime was clearly distraught over the results of his U.S. Open debut. However, Shapovalov was nothing but supportive of his opponent and even shared an emotional embrace with him at the net.

“It’s actually really tough to see him going out like this,” Shapovalov said. “I told him at the net we’re going to be back here, we’re going to play so many of these.”

Is it time to retire the Halloween candy-eating prank?


Laura Falin

posted in Life

It’s the question that has divided most parents I know for the last few Halloweens. Is Jimmy Kimmel’s annual prank, where parents tell their children they ate all the kids’ Halloween candy, funny or mean?

I’ve always found it unsettling. I swear I have a sense of humor. I like joking with my kids. I really like Jimmy Kimmel and I think he’s hilarious, too. There were a few years when I wondered if I was being too uptight. But this particular prank never sat well with me.

Jimmy Kimmel son surgery monologue

Then today, I stumbled across this Washington Post article that perfectly articulated all the reasons it made me uneasy. This sums it up here:

“I have a different view. In my opinion as a longtime child psychiatrist, the children in the clips — most of whom appear to be between 3 and 7 years old — are reacting not so much to the temporary loss of candy but to a sense of betrayal that will linger long after their parents own up to the joke.”

Aside from the fact that we have plenty of crying around here already, and I do not need to introduce reasons for more of it, there’s that sense of betrayal. The writer, a child psychiatrist, states that kids see things as strictly right or wrong. We don’t understand nuance, or shades of gray, or pranking, until we get older. So either you’re a good guy, or a bad guy. When parents deliberately lie to their kids, and steal on top of that, it confuses them.

The author also points out that this is the first time a lot of kids get some independence. They get to pick out a costume. They get to knock on doors, and ask for candy, and keep that candy in a special container just for them. And then we consider this:

“But they are still very young. Their bonds with their parents are built on trust — trust that Mom and Dad would never do anything to hurt them. And it can feel like a violation of that trust to hear that Mom and Dad have stolen and eaten all of their hard-won spoils, the stuff they went to bed dreaming about.”

I’m probably going to let my kids down more times than I can count before they’re grown. I hope those times will all be unintentional, and I hope my kids will forgive me. Why would I add deliberate disappointments to that?

I second the writer when she says she hopes this is the year the prank is retired for good. Let the kids have their candy without any pranking. And if we’re going to take a piece or two (and I will…I definitely will…), let’s be honest with our kids about it from the start.

What do you think? Is the candy-eating prank funny or not?

Robert Redford To Retire From Acting

Robert Redford says he is planning on retiring from acting soon to focus on directing and on his first love – art.

The 80-year old star of “Out of Africa” and “The Sting” told his grandson Dylan in an online interview that he was getting tired of acting.

“I’m an impatient person, so it’s hard for me to sit around and do take after take after take,” Redford said in the interview published on Thursday for the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. “Going back to sketching — that’s sort of where my head is right now.”

Redford, who has never won an Oscar for acting despite a storied 50-year career, will not be departing from the big screen any time soon.

He said he has two more acting projects in the works. One is a love story for older people with Jane Fonda, his co-star in the 1967 romantic comedy “Barefoot in the Park,” and the other is a lighter movie with Casey Affleck and Sissy Spacek. According to movie website, both movies are expected to be released in 2017.

“Once they’re done then I’m going to say, ‘Okay, that’s goodbye to all that,’ and then just focus on directing,” he said.

Redford recalled that his first love was art and that he spent time in Europe as a teenager “exploring story-telling through painting.”

Movies like “All The President’s Men,” “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid” and “The Way We Were” made Redford into one of the world’s biggest movie stars of the 1970s and 1980s.

He later turned to directing, winning an Oscar for the 1980 film “Ordinary People.”

In 1978, Redford helped found what became the Sundance Film Festival in Utah to promote independent movies, and which has grown to be the most influential independent film gathering in the world.
