‘Power’ Recap – Season 5, Ep. 9: There’s a Snitch Among Us

The father/son dynamic unfolds in curious ways, and Angela’s clock may have run out for real this time. Death, deceit and deals make the headlines in this week’s episode of Power.

The episode beings with a grizzly TV news obituary for fallen gangsta Kanan Stark, as reporters and the community try to make sense of the quadruple murder from a known felon. As Tariq watches the news, he can hear the commotion from the living room, where Tasha, Ghost and Tommy discuss how the Kanan setup unfolded.

Ghost is upset that Tasha went behind his back, and put Tariq in danger. Tasha is upset that Kanan wasn’t the main target to frame from the beginning. Tommy is there to provide peanut gallery level humor and ad-libs. Tariq interrupts the quarrel to take credit for Kanan’s murder. He didn’t divulge the true danger in the plan and knew the only way out was for Kanan to die. He remains indignant towards Ghost for lying about his past, and reiterates that he’s a real g now, a school won’t change him, and Ghost needs to put him on to game or get out of the way. Needless to say, Ghost didn’t oblige. Tariq ends up ditching school to meet with Vincent, accept condolences for Kanan’s death, and continue the drug business on a trail basis. Vincent agrees, and also puts Tariq in contact with a good fake ID connect who supplies Tariq with a new identity “Erick Stark” so he can pickup Kanan’s ashes from the police. The adventures of “Street Tariq” have just begun.

Daenerys Targaryen: There’s Only One Real Winner in the Game of Thrones

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains potential spoilers for Season 8 of Game of Thrones. Proceed at your own risk.

It was almost exactly a year ago that we were left reeling from the revelations in “The Dragon and the Wolf” – the Game of Thrones Season 7 finale. Littlefinger perished after a canny little bit of double-crossing at the hands of the Stark sisters, while the Night King and his army, which now includes a Wight Dragon (OMFG), took down the wall. Oh, and then there was the small matter of Jon and Daenerys sleeping together (incestuously, albeit inadvertently) after a fair bit of flirting. And THAT RIGHT THERE is one key factor in our reckoning that Dany is the number one candidate to end up on the Iron Throne. Let’s dive in…

Jon and Dany’s Baby Is The Prince That Was Promised

First, let’s get this straight. There’s no baby (yet) and no confirmation that Daenerys is even pregnant. But there’s every possibility that she is after cosying up with her irresistible nephew in the Season 7 finale, alongside heavy hints that she’s got a bun in the oven. It’s been seeded, if you’ll pardon the pun.

Let’s not forget that there’s also been plenty of speculation over the identity of the Prince That Was Promised throughout Game of Thrones. And nobody as yet has emerged to claim that role. The prophesied saviour – who is presumably the key to defeating the Night King and saving the world from darkness – will be “born again amidst smoke and salt to make dragons out of stone”, according to Melisandre. In the novels, the Red Priestess refers to a “bleeding star” as critical to the prophecy.

Also known as the Azor Ahai (if indeed the two are one and the same – there’s some doubt), this legendary figure in his original incarnation defeated the Great Other, or god of darkness, to save the world. Melisandre’s fellow Lord of Light worshipper Thoros of Myr, like her, buys into the prophecy. He says the chosen one will “reforge the great sword Lightbringer that defeated the darkness those thousands of years ago.”

Following? Lovely stuff. Some people have both Jon and Dany pegged as candidates for the Prince That Was Promised. It’s not a stretch to see why. Jon has been ‘reborn’ already (resurrected by Melisandre), and was originally birthed under a ‘bleeding star’. Remember the flashback to Jon’s mother, Lyanna Stark, in labour? Ned Stark lay the ancestral sword of House Dayne, whose bearer he just killed and which was forged from the metal of a fallen star, by the blood-stained bed in which Jon was born. Et voila. A neat little touch.

Dany, meanwhile, has already proven able to hatch dragons from stone, fulfilling that part of the prophecy easily. But then there’s the fact that she was born on Dragonstone – which qualifies her for the salt and smoke part of the prophecy, the island being volcanic (smoke) and also being surrounded by the sea (salt). She was also ‘reborn’, of course, amid the smoke from Khal Drogo’s funeral pyre. Both Jon and Dany, of course, also have the hero credentials to fulfil the role. But it all adds credence to the notion that it will be their offspring, not them, that will bear the responsibility of vanquishing the Night King.

There have been hints that the true saviour hasn’t yet been born, so this would make sense. And if this is the case, it would elevate Dany’s significance in the series further, making her a shoe-in as the new ruler of Westeros – not only is she the Mother of Dragons but she’d also be mum to the chosen one. Perhaps she’ll marry Jon, who currently stands as the rightful heir to the throne but who we reckon could die before Season 8 is out. Then, she could be left to rule legitimately in his stead.

It’s a Show About Women Overcoming the Toxic Patriarchy


Game of Thrones_Daenerys and Viserys
Daenerys has come far since being traded into marriage by her brother — making all the right moves along the way.

If you look at the way women were both portrayed and treated early in the series and compare that to how we see them now, it becomes apparent that the show has been setting its women characters up to fight back against the oppression and objectification they’ve suffered under Westeros’s patriarchal structure. And if that’s the case, it makes sense to put a woman on the Iron Throne to usher in a new matriarchal age – or better still, one in which equality reigns. Which brings us to Daenerys as the most obvious candidate to take the hotseat. She is arguably the most successful example of a woman in Game of Thrones overcoming patriarchal dominance, of all the women we’ve seen attempting to overturn their oppression.

One such woman is Cersei Lannister. To see Cersei end up on the Iron Throne would mean a corrupt, unhinged and despotic ruler, which wouldn’t fulfil the purpose of a series that seeks to denounce patriarchal ideology and put women on top. She’s a victim of the patriarchy and though she’s battled against its oppression of her, she’s continued to suffer because of her own actions.

Cersei is a woman who has been punished for her life choices. Because of her incestuous relationship with her brother Jaime, she was forced to complete a Walk of Atonement. Who could forget the humiliation and torment she suffered as she was forced to walk naked outside through a baying crowd pelting her with faeces and other gross bodily emissions and missiles? It’s easy to imagine how an experience like that would turn a woman into one bent on vengeance. All, of course, while her brother gets away with the part he played in the relationship. Officially at any rate – you could argue he’s paid in other ways. This woman’s experiences at the hands of the patriarchy would grind anyone down – and she’s fighting back in the most extreme way, having mustered all her fear, hate and vitriol to become a supremely powerful yet tyrannical force – one we definitely love to hate.

Sansa too has been seriously affected at the hands of men and the patriarchy in GoT. First becoming engaged to abusive tyrant Joffrey Baratheon, then finding herself married off to Tyrion by way of helping her escape her fate, then manipulated by Petyr Baelish into marrying Ramsay Bolton who proceeded to rape her nightly, Sansa has suffered. She’s consequently undergone a massive transformation and is now steely and determined, and capable of gross deception and bloody revenge. It’s not clear how her character might develop in Season 8. However, if that icy stare in the little snippet of footage released by HBO recently is anything to go by, it looks like she could be locking horns with Jon, and maybe Dany too. Sansa will complete her own arc by the series close, but it won’t end with her taking the throne.

Similarly, Arya has played too much by the unofficial Westerosi rulebook to make her a viable candidate to sit on the throne. Arya’s journey has seen her become an assassin as she ticks names off her lengthy kill list, eliminating those who have crossed her. Arya’s thirst for revenge has seen her set foot too far over the line to warrant a valid claim to the crown. She may well survive, as Maisie Williams’ Instagram post (above) suggested, but she’s an example of a woman whose decisions during her own personal fightback, influenced heavily by the patriarchal world in which she operates, means she won’t take the throne.

Daenerys, in contrast to all these other women, has overcome her downtrodden beginnings as the meek and mild little sister traded, essentially, as a sex slave. But using all the resources available to her, she turned her would-be rapist hulk of a husband, Khal Drogo, into a loving and gentle partner. On his death, her transformation into the powerful leader and warrior she’s become in latter seasons really began to take shape, as she woke her dragons and began her journey in pursuit of the Iron Throne.

She’s grown from strength-to-strength as the series has progressed, proving her worth in all situations – including the moment she killed the brutal Masters at Meereen. Though it may have seemed a tad harsh, it revealed a necessary savviness about the way the world works and an ability to blend a mostly moralistic standpoint with realistic action. She has proven herself to be the firm and humane woman needed at the helm of the new world order.

Ramsay Bolton Says So

When we interviewed Ramsay Bolton actor Iwan Rheon after Game of Thrones Season 7 ended, he told us it was “inevitable” that Daenerys Targaryen would end up on the Iron Throne. And who would argue with the man who played the most sadistic character ever to set foot in Westeros? Not us.

Game of Thrones will return for Season 8 in the first half of 2019.

Inside Sex Workers’ Fight for the Next Ocasio-Cortez: ‘There’s an Awakening Happening’

Scott Heins

BROOKLYN, New York — This rainy Sunday, sheltered under a mess of trees and surrounded by a circle of supporters, Julia Salazar gave a short speech that covered a number of her core concerns, from labor rights to stable and affordable housing. Salazar, who’s challenging incumbent Democrat Martin Dilan for the New York State Senate’s 18th district seat in North Brooklyn, related all of these issues back to the cause of the day: sex workers’ rights, and the fight for decriminalization.

At the end of her remarks, Salazar heralded the historic meet-up—a canvassing event to talk to voters about Salazar’s sex-work platform—as a step towards “liberation for sex workers, and for everyone in our communities.” Gatherings like this one, in which sex workers, activists, and allies convene in parks, town halls, packed rooms and even Congress, have taken on an increasingly urgent tone in the wake of SESTA/FOSTA, an anti-sex trafficking law that has further criminalized an already criminalized community, putting sex workers out of work and reportedly pushing them into unsafe and exploitative positions. Despite SESTA/FOSTA, which also threatens online communication between sex workers, sex workers’ rights activists have continued to organize—not just against the legislation, but for nothing less than liberation.

Salazar’s sex-work policy, billed as “concrete steps toward decriminalizing sex work and upholding the rights of sex working communities in New York,” includes a number of proposals that would be familiar to sex-work activists and allies. But for a New York state Senate candidate, they’re revolutionary—which is one more thing that Salazar would like to change. “People will say that this is radical,” Salazar told the crowd, “That what we are doing today is radical, that what I’m describing is radical, but we all know that it needs to be the norm.”

“I wanted to be able to empower myself and empower others through conversations likes these,” said Yee in a recent post from Essence. The radio personality also owns a Brooklyn juice bar and hosts her own podcast, Lip Service. “I used to worry about things like retirement and thinking I had to wait until I had a husband to buy a house. I was able to go ahead and become a homeowner on my own.”

“If money isn’t right then things don’t move. Money gives you that peace of mind and helps you to plan for future generations whether that’s your kids, nieces, nephews, god kids, neighbors, whoever,” Rapley shared with Essence.

The overarching theme for the podcast is to empower listeners with the blueprint for financial well-being and additionally, Rapley shares these tips daily through her platform, My Fab Finance, a personal finance site dedicated to helping millennial women change their money story and as she states, become their own fabulous.

“We’re just three women figuring it out just like you,” added Sow. “We’re wanting to keep ourselves accountable and stay accountable to each other, buy homes, pay off debt, learn how to invest.”

There’s a chance next year’s Galaxy S10 might be faster than this year’s iPhone

Galaxy S10 Release Date

The Galaxy Note 9 isn’t even here yet, and there’s already talk about Samsung’s next Galaxy S model, the S10, which is supposed to bring over several design changes and improvements.

A new report says that the Galaxy S10 will pack a much faster Samsung-made chip, which is only to be expected. The Galaxy S9’s Exynos 9810 already proved that Samsung is getting better at designing its own processors, although the Snapdragon 845 version of the phone outclassed it in real-life tests, in spite of scoring worse in benchmarks.

Chloe Bartoli: There’s ‘No Bad Blood’ Between Me and Sofia After Scott Disick Drama 

No drama here. Chloe Bartoli and Sofia Richie have “no bad blood” between them despite their rumored rift over Scott Disick. 

“Me and Sofia are cool,” the 28-year-old stylist told Us Weekly at RDxCaliGirls by Chloe Bartoli for Rocket Dog Launch Party at sbe’s Doheny Room in West Hollywood on Thursday, June 6. “We have no bad blood at all.”

Sofia Richie Scott Disick Relationship Timeline

Disick’s longtime relationship with Kourtney Kardashian, whom he shares three children with, ended in 2015 after he was spotted partying with Bartoli, who he dated in the past.

A source told Us in September 2017 that there was tension between Bartoli and Richie when the 19-year-old model starting dating Disick.

“After Sofia started hooking up with Scott, Chloe stopped speaking to her. It’s a mess,” a source told Us at the time. “They were the best of friends and were inseparable.” The women also unfollowed each other on Instagram at the time.

Bartoli, meanwhile, says thing are good now and explained why Richie often works with her twin sister, Marie-Lou Bartoli, who is also a stylist, instead of her. “She just was more Sofia’s style in the moment, so she went with Sofia and I went more with my other clients,” Bartoli explained. “I didn’t have time for everything.”

“About a year ago we used to work together and it was kind of awesome because every time we had clients, we would see what vibe the client was and we would know which one was going to be more present in that fitting and who was more comfortable in what,” she added about her sister. “And now we stopped working together a year ago just because our styles are very different and she’s doing a line and I’m doing my own thing, so I think it was good that we separated because we have such different vibes, but we’re still great and everything is good.”

Richie and Disick, meanwhile, recently got back together after a brief split. A source told Us earlier this month that the model broke up with the reality star after he was caught getting too close to another women at Kanye West’s album listening party in Wyoming and after he “cheated on her in Miami.” Two days later, the pair reconciled.

“They are now back together and Scott isn’t done with her,” an insider explained to Us on June 4. “Sofia had a strange weekend and Scott and her are working through things.”

There’s No Good Reason For Scott Pruitt to Still Have A Job

Chip Somodevilla/Getty

Scott Pruitt is a wart on the Trump administration—an embarrassment so comically corrupt that it’s become impossible to keep track of all the investigations into his unscrupulousness.

Scott Pruitt is also teetering. And if the president had any long term strategic vision, he would recognize that a reckoning is coming for his EPA chief—an inglorious final fall from grace—and that Pruitt’s exodus will ultimately be good for his administration.

Everyone else sees this. Pruitt’s traditional allies are fleeing. In recent days, Senator Joni Ernst said that Pruitt is “about as swampy as you get here in Washington, D.C. And if the president wants to drain the swamp, he needs to take a look at his own Cabinet.” Fox News Research has calculated Pruitt’s lavish spending, and dubbed his EPA the “(E)xpensive (P)ruitt (A)gency.” Meanwhile, the Washington Examiner’s Byron York and Tim Carney are calling him out.

Netflix cancellations are on the rise, but there’s no reason to worry

Netflix Cancellations

There’s no question that Netflix is an absolute juggernaut when it comes to media content. Each and every month, the streaming giant releases an eclectic array of original programming that’s practically impossible for any one person to keep up with. And speaking to Netflix’s ambitious goals with respect to original content, the company earlier this year said that it plans to have 1,000 originals on its platform by the end of 2018.

At the same time, Netflix in recent months has gone on something of a cancellation spree. In 2018 alone, Netflix canceled 13 shows, including the critically-acclaimed Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Everything Sucks, and the poorly received Disjointed. All the more interesting is that some shows were given a pink-slip after just one season on the air.

Apple Watch still dominates the market, but there’s a surprising amount of competition

Apple Watch

It’s now been more than three years since the original Apple Watch hit store shelves and Apple still hasn’t disclosed any sales figures for its increasingly popular wearable. While Apple isn’t likely to change its strategy in this regard anytime soon, company executives over the years haven’t been afraid to boast about the popularity of the Apple Watch while avoiding any mention of precise sales figures.

Case in point: Tim Cook during an earnings conference call this past March said that Apple Watch Sales during the 2017 holiday quarter were record-breaking, no doubt fueled by the popularity of the Apple Watch Series 3 and the inclusion of LTE connectivity on select models.

There’s a new type of iPhone cracker available, and cops are dying to buy it

GrayBox iPhone hacking 2018 how to break

In 2016, the FBI’s legal quest to force Apple to unlock the iPhone 5c of the San Bernadino shooter brought the issue of phone encryption fully into the public conciousness. Although people generally knew that smartphones were secure, it wasn’t until the highly public court case that people realized even the country’s top law-enforcement agency couldn’t easily crack basic consumer hardware.

Trying to break the encryption on the iPhone is a constantly-evolving cat-and-mouse game, and not many law enforcement agencies are capable of taking part. Rather than hiring their own cryptographers, law enforcement around the country instead buys “exploits” from hacking firms, who sell their technology to anyone who can pay tens of thousands of dollars. A new type of iPhone cracker, called the GrayKey, is a simple-to-use box that can reportedly crack the latest iPhone X running iOS 11, and as you’d expect, cops are lining up to buy it.

There’s a Good Chance Game of Thrones Fans Will Never See This Character Again

Although Lord Edmure Tully hasn’t been seen on Game of Thrones since Jaime Lannister used him a pawn to conquer Riverrun, it seemed as though fans may still learn his fate in the show’s final season. However, according to Tobias Menzies—who played Catelyn Stark’s doltish younger brother—the chances of Edmure returning aren’t looking too good.

During a recent interview with Digital Spy, Menzies was asked whether his character is still spending his days locked away in the Frey’s dungeon since Arya Stark used her face-swapping skills to massacre the entire Frey family. “The honest answer is, I have no idea,” he replied. “He’s obviously somewhere in a prison, he’s still around alive somewhere. They’re pretty stingy with their information and I’ve not heard anything from them.”

There’s always the chance that Menzies is giving fans the ol’ Kit Harington run-around. However, considering the rest of the cast has been filming season eight for quite some time, if he is telling the truth, that’s probably a wrap on Edmure.

But not to worry, Menzies is still going to be gracing our television screens: Netflix announced Wednesday that the 44-year-old actor is set to take over the role of Prince Phillip from Matt Smith in season three of The Crown.

Exclusive: There’s a Place For Charlie Hunnam in ‘Pacific Rim 3’

We’ve already covered why Charlie Hunnam — who played hero Raleigh Becket in the first Pacific Rim movie — isn’t returning for sequel Pacific Rim Uprising, with another movie seemingly responsible.

However, while speaking to Steven DeKnight — writer-director of the big-budget follow-up — FANDOM discovered that we might not have seen the last of Raleigh.

DeKnight kicked off the conversation by expressing his sadness that a scheduling conflict with Hunnam’s Papillon movie meant that the British actor couldn’t reprise the role in Part Two.

“I love Charlie Hunnam” he explained. “I sat down and talked with him about what we were planning and he was excited about it. I think it broke his heart not to be able to come back now. But a man’s got to follow his passion.”

However, with DeKnight hoping that the second movie makes enough money to get a third off the ground, it sounds like the character of Raleigh Becket is front and centre in his mind.


Idris Elba (l) with Charlie Hunnam in the first Pacific Rim movie.

“We’ve left it open” he revealed. “I have a great idea for how to fold him back into the next instalment if he’s available and if the schedules work. So I’m really hoping he comes back because I would love to see Charlie Hunnam up onscreen opposite John Boyega, Scott Eastwood and Cailee Spaeny.”

As for where the Becket character is while the events of Pacific Rim Uprising are unfolding, DeKnight wouldn’t spill the beans. “I cannot tell you” he explained with a knowing grin. “That’s part of the reveal of what happened to him. But I think it’s pretty cool.”

Pacific Rim Uprising — which finds a fresh set of Jaegers doing battle with a new team of Kaiju — hits screens this Friday (March 23). And you can find out all about those new battle-bots by clicking on the link below…

Apple Watch Series 3 LTE best deals

Valentine’s Day might originally have been a holiday designed to sell restaurant reservations and abnormally large numbers of out-of-season flowers, but that hasn’t stopped it from becoming another stop along the annual journal of seasonal sales. T-Mobile is joining the fun this year with a handful of new deals, and the best one is this buy-one-get-one-half-price on the Apple Watch Series 3.

The deal is pretty straightforward: Buy two Apple Watch Series 3 devices on T-Mobile, and you get the second one for half price. Unlike smartphone deals, there aren’t a ton of terms and conditions attached; it’s just a straightforward discount on a device that doesn’t often see sales.

Microsoft’s Surface Book 2 just got $300 cheaper, but there’s a catch

Surface Book 2 vs MacBook Pro

When it launched late last year, Microsoft’s flagship Surface Book 2 started at $ 1,499. That might not raise any eyebrows among people who have bought a MacBook before, but Windows laptops don’t normally command that kind of premium, magical hybrid design or not.

So it’s probably not a great sign that Microsoft is introducing a lower-priced version of the Surface Book 2 with less storage. The new entry-level Surface Book costs $ 1,199 and comes with 128GB of storage, compared to the 256GB in the $ 1,499 version.

Do you hold your baby on your left hip? There’s a reason for it

by

Maggie Downs

posted in Life

There was really only one thing that came naturally to me after I gave birth to my son, and that was holding him on my left side. I snuggled him in the crook of my left arm, I rocked him with my left arm. And as he grew a little older, I slung him on my left hip and carried him around.

I hauled him around on my left side, even when that side of my lower back began to ache, even when it felt like I was squeezing part of my spine like an accordion.

A woman at the beach with a sun hat, her baby on her left side

 

Even my husband did it.

A Japanese man hold a baby on his left hip

 

It’s not just us.

It turns out 70 to 80 percent of women carry their babies on their left side, according to this study.

Remarkably, this is something that begins long before women ever give birth: “The bias appears prior to maternity and is demonstrated early in ontogeny; even preschool-age girls show a clear left preference when holding a doll the size and weight of a newborn baby,” the study says.

But why?

A study published earlier this month could hold the key. The Biology Letters journal says Pacific walruses and Indian flying foxes also show a significant bias toward the left side for mothers and their babies. The researchers studied those animals specifically because the mothers and babies in those two species are known to hang out both side-by-side as well as face-to-face.

The researchers hypothesize that mothers keep babies toward the left to aid in communications, since information from the left visual field is processed by the right hemisphere of the brain.

“[The] right hemisphere controls many aspects of social behaviour,” said Dr Andrey Giljov, co-author of the new research, in an interview with The Guardian. “Therefore, the greater right-hemisphere involvement provides optimal processing of social information.”

That, he adds, might help mothers and their offspring to notice and respond to the behavior of the other, since the right hemisphere of the brain is in charge of language and emotional signals and involved such tasks as the recognition of faces and emotions.

 

A woman in a green dress holds a toddler on her left hip.

So by holding your baby on your left side, you’re better able to see and understand what the child is doing. Being able to interpret baby’s cues and respond to their needs promotes bonding. And best of all, it’s totally natural!

But try telling that to my back the next time it starts creaking.

Do you carry your baby on the left or right side?

Black Mirror’s Fourth Season Struggles Until There’s an Episode in Space. Seriously

It’s easy to tell tales about the near future—until it catches up with you. That’s the problem Black Mirror faces in its fourth season, which hits Netflix on Dec. 29. The twisty sci-fi anthology series, which first aired in the U.K. in 2011, still shares stories about technology and how it affects relationships. But imaginative, prescient stories are harder now. Reality in the late 2010s has been more creative in devising narrative turns than fiction could. As for prescience, if many are convinced there’s no future, who cares what the future’s tech looks like?

Sci-fi can serve as an escape when the future feels dark, but it can also seem a bit frivolous when its aperture is narrow. Several of the six episodes in the new season of Black Mirror stick to the show’s blueprint, focusing on how a specific technology affects a specific person or few people. The implications are meant to be chilling. For example, a technology that allows a parent to censor what her child sees produces a blinkered and angry young adult. But in the end, these stories end up seeming both more scolding than ever and perversely assuaging. In the near future Black Mirror depicts, there will still be helicopter parents, but they’ll leave the rest of us basically alone. An episode in which humanity is on the run from a dangerous technology we seem to have created ourselves is sketchily-drawn enough to be a momentary sort of comfort, too. If Charlie Brooker, the show’s seemingly endlessly inventive creator, can’t come up with a compelling way we’d end ourselves, maybe things aren’t so bad.

Of course, Black Mirror is in our world, sort of: “This isn’t an episode. This isn’t marketing. This is reality,” the show’s official account tweeted on election night 2016. But Black Mirror, despite one previous episode positing a future in which a literal cartoon character rose to political prominence, was generally stronger as a Twilight Zone-esque series of parables than a comment on what is actually happening in our world. Its statements resonated more sharply in a duller era. If the show wants to position itself as entirely of the moment, it has more work to do in meeting its viewers where they are, at a place where concern over what we’re doing to each other extends beyond implanted brain-modification technologies—and beyond the individual.

The season has bright spots: An episode about a dating technology whose control over its users can’t seem to erase the possibility of a real connection, scans a bit like an attempt to repeat the success of the dating-in-virtual-reality opus “San Junipero.” That episode’s depiction of two women whose romance pushed past the boundaries of time, reality and life in the closet provided Black Mirror a breakthrough moment of sorts, as even the most casual of fans swooned to the uncharacteristic earnestness. This time, the twist was the miracle of love. It was an episode that simultaneously engaged issues of the heart and the way technology has reshaped possibilities of what life can look like for all of us. “Hang the DJ” is no “San Junipero,” but the show may as well copy from its own best work.

But one episode this season has the imaginative power of Black Mirror at its best: “U.S.S. Callister.” The 1960s space serial features a large cast in a Star Trek-like fictional universe, all bubblegum colors and bright responses to the all-knowing Captain, who end up facing down existential threats. This episode makes the universe of Black Mirror seem more ambitious, and not merely because its characters are hurtling through space. It works because the show’s verve and its anger are reserved for something that’s happening right now—something that viewers understand as a threat more potent than imagined mechanical predators or mind-controlling implants.

In depicting not just a male villain consumed by his misogyny (Jesse Plemons) but the women who face him down (among them Cristin Milioti and Michaela Coel), the episode of a pessimistic show gives us not just a catastrophic future but real heroes fighting back. It also includes what makes people good, not just what’s making them worse. “U.S.S. Callister” feels ambitious and boundless, a rarity for the series. On a season in which Black Mirror drifts yet further away from many viewers’ real sense of dystopia, this dispatch from deep space will remind you of science fiction’s power to cut to the very heart of modern concerns.

There’s a FedEx holiday email scam going around — here’s what you should know

A seasonal email scam threatens to sour the holidays for a number of FedEx customers.

The fraudulent emails contain a subject line that reads: “FedEx: Delivery Problems Notification.” Any emails with that subject line should be discarded immediately, CBS affiliate WTOL 12 reports.

FedEx is warning customers that the scam is designed to trick last-minute holiday shoppers, according to WTOL. The emails ask recipients to open an attachment in order to view an invoice or airbill required to pick up the package, but the attachment may actually contain a virus.

Related article: FedEx is delivering packages on Christmas to make up for delays

“The frequency of this email tends to increase close to the holiday season, presumably to exploit the growth in shipping volumes,” FedEx says on its Customer Protection Center page. More examples of common email scams involving the deliverer can be found on the site.

MONEY has reached out the FedEx about this specific scam and will update the story if we receive a response.

There’s a story behind each ornament on every Christmas tree

by

Tara Shafer

posted in Parenting

I love trimming our tree and setting out ornaments even more than I love Christmas morning. I think too, that if my kids were able to be really honest, they would agree. The tree trimming hype is less in comparison to an orgy of gifts, but the magic is more.

Holiday decorating seems less prone to go down in the creeping anticlimax that naturally occurs as children grow up. My oldest grieves the memory of Santa faith, but still insists upon decorating the tree with absolute abandon. That never leaves him.

So, yes. My favorite thing about the holidays — hands down — are the decorations.

This year we were late to the tree. By the time my entire family was all together, it was late on a cold winter afternoon in mid-December and the blue early evening light unspooled everywhere. There was a fire and the kids had chosen a tree, a wreath, and centerpiece at our local tree farm.

Earlier, I had set out the ornaments, hauled up once more from the basement. Everything from the dates on the newspaper in which they are wrapped to the ornaments themselves are evocative.

I make it a point to buy an ornament in as many shops as possible over the course of a year. I’m the lady buying the Christmas ornament in July at a shack at the beach. (A tiny lobster pot, a Hershey’s Kiss). I have a bulb for most family vacations I’ve ever taken. I love the memories associated with each one.

What makes these ornaments so special?

Ornaments represent moments in time. They are an artery to kid nostalgia which is, maybe, the cutest thing ever. When a second grader finds a blue sparkly snowflake made in preschool and cradles it gently in her hands as she finds the right branch. “Oooh, I made this when I was just a kid!”

But there is more. Ornaments ripen somehow as the memories deepen. I have a collection of tiny plaster animals given to us by my eldest son’s godmother and my cousin. These ornaments once hung in the childhood home of my paternal grandmother, whom I adored. The daughter of a frugal Canadian prairie minister, my grandmother hung these very ornaments on her tree when she was the age of my daughter. I love to think of their hands resting on the same object nearly a century apart.

The completely random selection of ornaments is what makes it all so great. I have antiquities on my tree, together with popsicle-stick reindeer and all the rest. Nothing goes together. It is all just a chaotic explosion of things catching lights and reflections.

In contrast to the gift exchange moments, the few hours we spend trimming the tree are beautiful, and respectful. There is an air of quiet joy as children unwrap memories and hang them up in a display of light against darkness. In such moments, my little family feels safe and contained in the universe of a snow globe. And it only lasts for a few moments — but I’ll take it with gratitude.

What is your favorite decoration and what is the story there?

There’s an 80% Chance You’re Wearing the Wrong Shoes for Hiking

If you’re at all an outdoor person—and this may be especially true if you live in a place like L.A.)—you’ve gone on your fair share of hikes. But there’s a big difference between going for a casual walk through your local park and climbing over boulders to reach a mountain’s crest boils—not all hikes are made equally, and the same is true of the shoes you pick out for such an activity.

The common idea for hiking is that sneakers work best, and seeing as we wear sneakers for all other forms of exercise, why wouldn’t they be ideal for hiking as well? Actually, according to Stacy Taniguchi, Ph.D., a professor of recreation management at Brigham Young University, wearing sneakers on a hike may be putting you in unnecessary danger. Extreme conditions like dry, dusty trails, or muddy grounds make it that much more likely that you’ll slip and fall, especially along inclines. The fact is sneakers just provide enough traction.

The best shoes you really should be wearing on a hike? Heavy-duty, high-top hiking boots. Some details to look out for when purchasing the correct shoes are thick soles, heavy treads, ample support, and waterproof material, depending on which type of terrain you’ll be exploring.

Now There’s Only One Way to Get the Sold-Out Bag Meghan Markle Made Famous

In case you were wondering how influential Meghan Markle’s style is, let’s review the numbers. Earlier this month, Markle made her first royal appearance since the engagement announcement carrying a bag by Edinbugh-based brand Strathberry. According to the label, the bag sold out in 11 minutes across all international retailers, and resulted in a 5000% traffic increase on Strathberry’s website. Impressive right?

Now, the brand is taking its newfound attention and doing something to give back. Strathberry is auctioning off the last currently available bag to benefit the same charity Markle and Prince Harry were promoting that day: the Terrence Higgings Trust, which advocates for equality and justice for people living with HIV and AIDS. The auction begins today at 3 p.m. EST and runs through Sunday, December 17 and you can make bids on the brand’s website

If you’re willing to wait, however, Strathberry is doing another round of production for the bag soon—keep your eyes peeled. 

Scroll down to see how Meghan Markle styled her Strathberry tote for her first official royal appearance.

There’s No Way Stephen Colbert Was Going to Let Trump’s Water Break Slide

On Wednesday night’s episode of The Late Show, Stephen Colbert wanted to welcome President Donald Trump back from Asia with a drink, but couldn’t quite manage the feat.

Colbert’s gag was yet another person poking fun at the president for his water-drinking method, which he put on display when he, as The Late Show captioned their video, “took a break mid-speech Wednesday to wet his dog whistle.”

Colbert aired a clip of the president’s press conference, which Trump paused in order to take a two-handed drink from a bottle of water. “That is hard to watch,” Colbert said, adding, “After watching that, I need a drink.” Colbert then imitated the president’s sip of water. While the audience laughed, Colbert noted that “everybody gets dry mouth”, so it wasn’t fair to tease a politician for staying hydrated. “I can’t stand here and make fun of a politician for drinking water,” said Colbert. “And Trump already did it way better with Rubio.” Colbert then aired a clip of Trump mocking Florida Sen. Marco Rubio for drinking water during his State of the Union response in 2013.

Rubio got his revenge on Trump, though, rating the president’s water-drinking technique, as a means of karmic retribution.

It looks like there’s another celebrity baby to get excited about for 2018

Congratulations are definitely in order…

eddie redmayne second baby

 From the editors of InStyle US
Words by Jennifer Davis

It’s definitely the year for celebrity babies, with pregnancy announcements emerging left, right and centre.

This week it’s a big congratulations for Eddie Redmayne! He and his wife Hannah are expecting their second child together, according to E! News.

Rex

‘Eddie and Hannah Redmayne are delighted to confirm they are expecting their second child,’ the actor’s rep told the entertainment news outlet. The Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them star and his wife welcomed their first child, a baby girl named Iris May Redmayne, in June 2016.

No word yet on when baby number two is due, but we expect the family is overjoyed with the news, especially Redmayne, who gushed about being a father last year on Ellen. ‘Before you’re a parent, you sort of hear people talking about [not getting any sleep] and suddenly you’re the guy who’s like floating in a sort of constant jet lag with a constant IV of caffeine. So yes, I’ve become that person. It’s worth every minute,’ he said.

‘It’s that amazing thing when it’s three o’clock in the morning and you go in and you’re sort of gently furious and then you get a little smile and your heart breaks a bit, and it’s totally worth it.’

Congratulations to these two!

O.J. Simpson’s Sister: ‘There’s No Reason Why’ He Should’t Be Paroled This Year

O.J. Simpson’s sister Shirley Baker is optimistic that her notorious sibling will be released from prison sometime this year, as he comes up for parole nearly 10 years after being found guilty in an armed robbery.

A parole hearing date is set for July 20 and Simpson could be released as early as October.

“There’s no reason why not,” Baker said in an interview with Inside Edition that aired Tuesday.

“He’s there, he’s doing his time, he abided by the rules,” she said. “And I just hope and pray that they will give him parole.”

Simpson — who was acquitted in the 1994 double slayings of his wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman (for which he was later found civilly responsible) — was convicted in 2008 for his role in the armed robbery and kidnapping of two sports-memorabilia dealers in a Las Vegas hotel room.

The 69-year-old former football star claimed he was trying to get back keepsakes that had been stolen from him and that he had no idea his accomplices were carrying weapons.

But the jury found differently, and he was sentenced to up to 33 years in prison in Nevada.

During the Inside Edition interview, Baker said she talks to Simpson every week by phone and visits him in prison four times a year. She said that guards even have a nickname for him: “Nordberg,” after his role in the Naked Gun film series.

The family of Ronald Goldman has also spoken out this year about the possibility of Simpson’s early release. His sister told Good Morning America in February, “He did a horrible, heinous crime and I have no feeling except rot in hell.”

There’s Going To Be A ‘Working Girl’ Musical With Songs By Cyndi Lauper

As if it’s not enough to be the first solo woman to win the Tony Award for best score for “Kinky Boots,” pop icon Cyndi Lauper will write the score for a musical based on the 1988 hit film “Working Girl,” it was announced on Tuesday.

Playwright Kim Rosenstock, who was a writer on the show “New Girl” for six seasons, will write the book for the musical.

The Oscar-nominated film tells the story of a Staten Island secretary played by Melanie Griffith who is trying to make it in the male-dominated corporate world.

“I love the film, and its story about a woman’s very unconventional road to success in the ’80s is something I know a lot about,” Lauper said in a statement to The New York Times. “Women are still fighting for fundamental rights and equal pay!”

‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ May Be Game Of The Year — But There’s One Big Problem

arkhamknight

Batman attempts to deactivate an exploding collar on Catwoman in “Arkham Knight.”



Months after GamerGate first set video game culture ablaze with unbelievable resistance to the idea of feminist perspectives in the gaming industry, we have a new title that features some of the most compelling female characters in pop culture. “Batman: Arkham Knight,” which came out Tuesday, spotlights Poison Ivy, Catwoman, Oracle and Harley Quinn in major roles. But while these women are often represented as strong, independent and able in other media, their featured roles here often tell a different story: They are damsels in distress.

Many, many people will play this game, if previous entries are any indication. The last main title in the series, which has a couple of spinoffs, sold over 5 million copies. And that aside, “Arkham Knight” is actually an exceptional game taken on its own merits: It is devoted to a cohesive aesthetic and narrative in a way few other games are, the set pieces are compelling and it’s brimming with things to do. One moment you’ll be studying the microscopic details of a crime scene, and five minutes later you’re dodging drone fire in the middle of a populated city street. It all feels crunchy and good.

“Arkham Knight” will likely earn accolades as one of the standout titles of the year — it already holds a 91 on Metacritic — and that is precisely why its sins should not be ignored.

(Note: The text that follows contains some spoilers for the storyline in “Arkham Knight.”)

poison ivy
Poison Ivy appears in “Arkham Knight” with a barely-there shirt and a mossy crotch.

It’s really no big secret that gaming and tech are male-dominated industries, even if consumers are split basically down the middle in terms of gender. Plenty of people will play “Arkham Knight” and probably ignore its oftentimes troubling presentation of women — perhaps that’s simply because the game is exciting, and as soon as you settle into a moment, something explodes and you’re off to something else.

But others will play the game and feel offended. Or disgusted. Or threatened. Or simply unwelcome. Even if those people were outnumbered 100 to 1 in a population of 5 million customers, it would be worthwhile to examine why and do better next time. Because here’s the trouble with “Arkham Knight”: It is a great game tarnished by its dreadful depictions of certain characters and situations.

arkham knight
Poison Ivy is held hostage in “Arkham Knight.”

The baseline problem with “Arkham Knight” is that instead of taking opportunities to depict strong women, the game makes them weak. For the most part, the female characters suck.

When you first come upon Poison Ivy early in the story, she has a gun to her head. You rescue her, and then you lock her in the back of the Batmobile and drag her to police headquarters. Later in the game, Batman determines that Ivy can communicate with — literally — a big old tree that could counteract the effects of a chemical weapon that Scarecrow intends to detonate somewhere in Gotham City. So Batman hauls his way back to lockup and drags her back to the Batmobile like she’s a petulant child. Poison Ivy is basically a power-up for the player to collect, like a mushroom in “Super Mario.”

She is barely wearing clothes throughout the entire ordeal.

arkham knight
“Arkham Knight” recreates a troubling scene from “The Killing Joke” in which Barbara Gordon is shot and paralyzed by the Joker.

Catwoman, often portrayed as Batman’s equal, fares no better. Like Ivy, her storyline begins in custody. Her outfit is unzipped enough to show a massive slice of cleavage. Why? Because Catwoman is “sexy” and it’s apparently hard to portray sexiness without showing boob?

The Riddler has strapped her to a chair, and Batman is called to rescue her. You arrive on the scene and find that there’s an entire ordeal required to free her: Riddler has fitted her with a choker that will explode unless you deactivate a number of locks. The gameplay sometimes has Batman and Catwoman working together — you can switch between them at points — but the pattern almost invariably requires Batman to complete some feat of cunning, force and reflexes while Catwoman bums around in a locked chamber. Her liberation is essentially a prize for you, the player.

Things are absolutely worst for Oracle, a hero in a wheelchair who assists Batman remotely. To detail her storyline would reveal much about the largest plot points in “Arkham Knight,” but things do not go well for her. An incredibly problematic storyline from the comic books is retread in vivid detail: She is abducted and maimed and exists almost entirely in this context to stir angst in the featured male characters. Batman, Robin, Commissioner Gordon and Alfred fret over her like a baby missing from the crib.

harley quinn
Harley Quinn steps up.

These are not failures from a gameplay perspective. But they are artistic missteps, awful quirks that will make this game — and perhaps all video games by extension — seem incredibly stupid to any critical thinker who may have thought to give “Arkham Knight” a try.

This game does not exist in a vacuum. It arrives at a moment when women are still being shut out of the gaming and tech industries to the point where many are even looking for work elsewhere. It is bizarre that “Arkham Knight” both includes many women and diminishes them so plainly.

All of that said, there are some important caveats. First: Harley Quinn — Joker’s deranged on-again, off-again girlfriend — is actually kind of cool this time around. Her character design in “Arkham City” (NSFW) was incredibly sexualized and seemingly intended purely for the male gaze. (For an interesting discussion of this very topic, listen to episode 58 of the lovely “Isometric” podcast.)

Here, Harley Quinn’s decked out in a pretty serious tutu and barks orders at a bunch of armed dudes. She’s more covered than not. The whole thing struck me as fairly whimsical and a step in the right direction, even if it’s not a perfect representation.

And no one can argue that the comic book source material is free from cheesecake. There are, in fact, many comics featuring these characters that are several orders of magnitude more sexist than “Arkham Knight.” Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn in particular are often exploited for sexy fluff, as this page from “Harley and Ivy #2” shows. It’s by the great Paul Dini and Bruce Timm:

poison ivy

But there’s a major difference between this comic and something like “Arkham Knight” — something that maybe isn’t so obvious. This Poison Ivy could be appealing to men and women alike. The entire miniseries is devoted to Harley and Ivy wreaking havoc on their own terms — it’s “sexy” more than “sexist.” They actively and successfully strike back against the forces that oppress them. They aren’t seeking the approval of men, and they certainly don’t need a player to rescue them.

And not that we need an eye for an eye, but the two ladies also take a second to objectify some dudes in the third issue:

harley and ivy

It’s ostensibly fun for everyone. And that’s what we could use a little more of in these games.
