‘Years and Years’ charts chaotic future through one family

Writer Russell T Davies has seamlessly moved between science fiction (“Doctor Who,” “Torchwood”) and character-driven dramas (“Queer as Folk”), but he’s found a doozy of a way to wed those genres in “Years and Years,” a BBC series whose near-future dystopia should resonate, in select circles, on both sides of the pond.

How To Save For Retirement If You Can’t Do It Through Your Employer

Why is it now so important to talk about retirement planning for workers without an employer-sponsored plan?

Only about half of all Americans have access to plans available through their job, according to a 2018 report from the Stanford Center on Longevity. The other half are freelancers or workers with multiple jobs or part-time jobs that do not offer 401(k)s or other accounts. And the percentage of people in this position is projected to grow in the coming years! But not having access to an employer-sponsored plan does not mean you can skip saving for retirement, Tom! This morning, I want to talk about the options available to those without an employer retirement option.

Let’s start with the basics. What percentage of our paycheck should we be saving?

Regardless of whether you have an employer sponsored plan or not, you want to try to save at least 10% of your gross income, which means your income before taxes. For example, if your salary is $ 36,000 per year, you should try to put $ 3,600 ($ 300 per month) into your retirement account every year. If you cannot save 10%, that’s OK. Every dollar counts, so save whatever you can! And remember, contributions to most retirement funds are considered pre-tax, meaning that what you save is deducted from your overall taxable income. So come tax time, you will be paying taxes on a smaller adjusted income.

 So we are socking away 10% of our pay. Where to we put it if we are self-employed or freelancing?

There are a number of vehicles available if your employer does not offer a plan. The first is the Single 401(k), also known as the Individual 401(k) or Solo 401(k). These accounts are set up for individuals or a small business owned by a spouse or an immediate family member. They work just like a traditional 401(k), with one major exception. Because Single 401(k) participants don’t have access to employer matching, account holders are allowed to make higher contributions up to 25 percent of the business’ earnings.

If you are a small business, a Simplified Employee Pension IRA or SEP IRA is also a good option available to you, especially if you have employees. SEP IRAs are easy to set up and have low fees. However, under this account, the employer makes contributions, not the employees.

There is no minimum contribution for a Single 401(k) or a SEP IRA, allowing you to put away money at any time!

What options are available for part-time workers or those who work at a company that doesn’t offer a retirement plan?

Great question! If you have a couple of side hustles or your company does not offer retirement accounts, you can put your money in an independent retirement account, or IRA. Contributions you make to IRAs are usually tax-deductible, and transactions and earnings within the IRA have no tax impact. However, it is important to note that withdrawals you make in retirement will be taxed as income. An IRA allows you to save if you haven’t struck out on your own!

Is there anything else our listeners should know?

When you do not have an employer-sponsored plan, it can be easy to put retirement on the back burner. Don’t let this happen to you! Take time to do your research, choose the investment vehicle that best suits your needs, and get started. As you have heard me say, the best way to contribute to your retirement account is to set up a direct deposit so you can set it and forget it.

And remember, if you do not know where to start, contact a financial advisor.

McDonald’s Celebrates Black Excellence Through New ‘Black & Positively Golden ‘Campaign

McDonald’s USA rolled out its largest campaign in 16 years targeting African American consumers on Friday. The new campaign, titled “Black & Positively Golden,” aims to uplift black communities and inspire excellence through education, empowerment, and entrepreneurship. It also replaces the McDonald’s 365Black platform, which began in 2003.

The campaign launched in partnership with YWCA USA at a community event held at Leimert Park in Los Angeles. The event began with a panel of black corporate executives that discussed the messaging behind “Black & Positively Golden,” how it celebrates black excellence, and highlights stories of truth, power, and pride. The kickoff also featured the unveiling of a mural created by L.A.-based artist Enkone, an appearance by Insecure actress Yvonne Orji, and a live performance by multi-platinum recording artist Normani.

Beyond the launch event, McDonald’s has commenced a yearlong commitment to support the YWCA USA’s Women’s Empowerment 360 Program—an initiative designed to empower female entrepreneurs of color. The global food chain’s financial support will provide approximately 5,000 aspiring businesswomen around the country with an education curriculum and other tools needed for success.

According to Lizette Williams, Head of Cultural Engagement & Experiences, McDonald’s USA, the fast-food chain has been a pillar in communities of color by providing jobs, franchise opportunities, and scholarship funding. “The African American consumer, for McDonald’s, is critically important,” she told BLACK ENTERPRISE. “We’re a brand that’s accessible for everyone, but we’ve been there in the black community for 50 years. We’ve supported the black community through our work with HBCU scholarships,” in addition to supporting organizations like the YWCA and NAACP. “It continues to be at the very fabric of what the corporation and brand represent.”

Nicole Enearu, a franchisee who currently owns/operates a total of 18 McDonald’s restaurants with her family, told BE that the campaign “is really about shining a light on the positive things that are happening in the African American community and demonstrating McDonald’s ongoing commitment to our community.”

Enearu is just one of 300 African American McDonald’s franchisees in the U.S. who will help bring the campaign to life by providing economic opportunities to the neighborhoods they serve. “We maintain a commitment to our neighbors through various parts of our business—including scholarship partnerships with historically black colleges and universities, generational wealth-building with franchisee training and partnering with minority suppliers,” she said in a statement.

Terrence Burrell, the vice president and creative director of Burrell Communications Group, the firm that helped create the “Black & Positively Golden” campaign, says he hopes it will ultimately drown out negative news surrounding the black community. “We want that to be the narrative versus what we’re getting from the BBQ Beckys of the world and all of those moments that seem to go viral.”

In conjunction with the YWCA launch event, McDonald’s debuted the campaign with a 60-second television spot during the 50th NAACP Image Awards. “Black & Positively Golden” will also be featured in black-oriented media outlets and events throughout the year. Furthermore, McDonald’s says it will continue to provide scholarships for students attending HBCUs through its partnership with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.

“More than a campaign, we want to create a movement around positivity in black America,” said Williams.

Watch the “Black & Positively Golden” spot below.

Award-winning Filmmaker Tells the Stories of Black Businesses Through a Historic Lens

Oftentimes, when mainstream business success stories are told, the African American experience is overlooked despite the fact that black folks have been building businesses—as well institutions and communities—for decades in the face of racism, legal segregation, and systemic oppression. However, in a new film, award-winning filmmaker Stanley Nelson is shedding light on the historic achievements of African American entrepreneurs and the economic and societal impact that black businesses have made over the last century.

Nelson’s new documentary, Boss: The Black Experience in Business, chronicles the plight of black entrepreneurs since the end of slavery. It tells the untold story of African American entrepreneurship while highlighting legendary business leaders like Madam C.J. Walker and Motown legend Berry Gordy, as well as modern-day icons like Richelieu Dennis of SheaMoisture, billionaire Robert F. Smith, and venture capital investor Arlan Hamilton.

“African Americans have always been entrepreneurial. And wealth generation has always been connected to our empowerment,” wrote Nelson in a tweet promoting the film, which premieres on April 23 on PBS.

Nelson’s last documentary, Tell Them We Are Rising: The Story of Black Colleges & Universities, sparked a national conversation on social media about the legacy of HBCU’s following its premiered in 2017. “These schools have provided the foundation of black intellectual thought for 160 years,” Nelson told BLACK ENTERPRISE in 2017. “I’ve spent a career documenting key leaders and events in African American history but make no mistake, there would be no civil rights movement without HBCUs.”

Nelson’s The Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolutiona film that chronicles the rise and fall of the revolutionary Black Panther Party—also had a major cultural impact in 2015 and earned him an Emmy Award.

In 2000, he and his wife, award-winning writer and philanthropy executive Marcia Smith, founded Firelight Media to address the deficit of films made by and about people of color. The organization has since produced over 25 hours of primetime programming for public television and received several major broadcast awards, including the MacArthur Award for Creative and Effective Institutions. Nelson, a three-time Primetime Emmy Award-winner, was also honored with the National Humanities Medal by President Barak Obama in 2013.

Boss: The Black Experience in Business is a Firelight Films production for THIRTEEN Productions L.L.C., in association with The HistoryMakers. It premieres Tuesday, April 23 on PBS at 7 pm CT/8pm ET. Watch the trailer below.

Doctors Need To Talk Through Treatment Options Better For Black Men With Prostate Cancer

African-American men have the highest risk of being diagnosed with prostate cancer as well as dying from it compared to any other ethnic group in the U.S. This trend has remained unchanged for over four decades.

Although research has focused on identifying the biological differences that may lead to this difference, there’s growing evidence that distinct racial and ethnic disparities in prostate cancer treatment, and the quality of medical care in African-American men, contribute to this disparity.

African-American men are less likely to receive more aggressive treatments than their counterparts. And, if and when they do receive those treatments, they receive them later than their counterparts. For example, access to early effective survivorship treatments such as androgen deprivation therapies remains a challenge in African-American patients.

Our multidisciplinary research program in cancer population science at the University of Virginia has been examining reasons for poor prostate cancer outcomes, especially in African-American patients. Recent, as yet unpublished research from our group highlights several issues related to medication challenges in elderly prostate cancer survivors. We found there is a clear link between improved use of these treatments and reduced mortality. In addition, both access and use of these life-saving treatments remains low among African-American survivors.

A history of gaps

African-American prostate cancer patients face unique challenges in the treatment decision-making process. These include lower rates of understanding of treatment options, less time and interaction with medical care professionals and, often, poorer quality of medical care. Those challenges particularly affect both their access and compliance to medications, and, in turn, outcomes in these patients.

For example, a 69-year-old African American man whom we interviewed for our research, Mr. Tyler (name changed), along with his wife, Mrs. Tyler, sat in an exam room while his doctor told him he had stage 4 prostate cancer. Stage 4 cancer is cancer that has spread from its original site to distant organs and, in prostate cancer, even the bone.

Mr. Tyler was shocked. He had not noticed any health issues besides getting up in the middle of the night to urinate and some hip pain. He thought that was normal as men age. When he went to the clinic, he thought he had arthritis in his hip and would be prescribed pain medications for that. He could not imagine hearing that he had cancer.

He had not been to see a health care provider in about 12 years. He was always so busy at work and did not really feel comfortable going to a health care provider, having heard stories from family members and friends that other African-Americans are not treated well at the hospital.

The doctor gave Mr. Tyler a few options such as surgery, radiation and androgen deprivation therapy, considering his age, ethnicity, comorbidities and other related factors. But Mr. Tyler and his wife did not know what treatment options to seriously consider.

The health care provider gave a recommendation, but his wife was unsure. They were confused and anxious about making such a big and complex decision. The couple relied on information they received from speaking to friends, church members and relatives and ultimately made a decision, but it was not easy. And, it was not free from some regrets. Ultimately they chose to receive the radiation treatment and start the androgen deprivation treatment, which Mr. Tyler stopped because of discomfort. Mr. Tyler unfortunately died shortly after he discontinued treatment.

Treatment decision process improvements may be paramount

This scenario of confusion and anxiety is not so uncommon. Cancer is a terrifying diagnosis, and making decisions about treatment can be overwhelming.

Studies have suggested that patients with cancer feel more comfortable expressing their concerns with their health care provider when there is a trusting and supportive relationship developed along with adequate time for treatment discussion. This in turn leads to more comfortable treatment decisions, which often works to improve patient outcomes.

Prostate cancer treatment in particular often brings harsh side effects that severely affect a man’s quality of life. These side effects include erectile dysfunction, hot flashes, muscle loss, hair loss and urinary issues such as incontinence. These may be short term, but they can last for years.

The matter is complicated because many of these harsh side effects stem from androgen deprivation therapies, which can improve survival. Because of the complicated nature of assessing the risk of side effects with the potential benefit of survival, the use of androgen deprivation therapies should carefully be considered by the patient and his doctor.

Research has shown that these treatment-related decisions are very different in African-American prostate cancer patients compared to white patients and those residing in urban and rural communities. Therefore, there is a need to study treatment decision-making in both settings to formulate effective educational interventions.

Aids that can help

In one of our recent studies, we found that decision aids may help. Decision aids are electronic or paper tools involving a set of questions and information related to treatments. They are used to assist patients and caregivers in making informed decisions about the types of treatments and procedures, or both, that are more suitable for their particular case.

Decision aids are effective in a shared decision-making process, in which the doctor or nurse navigator sits down with a patient and walks through the process. There is active participation between the patient, caregiver and health care provider.

Decision aids can help patients apply specific health information while actively participating in health-related decision-making. Primarily, decision aids that have been applied to prostate cancer have been focused on knowledge or treatment options only, which patients often complete themselves. These types of decision aids are quite limited and do not allow patients the time and true engagement with health care providers to really understand their disease and the options that are available, and ultimately become satisfied with that decision.

Decision aids are most effective when they are tailored to the individual patient, rather than being generic. For example, researchers have developed an individualized decision support system BreastHealthDecisions.org, which represents a new approach to breast cancer prevention care.

In our study that developed an interactive decision aid for treatment decisions among advanced prostate cancer patients, we found that not only did the decision aid enhance patients’ and their caregivers’ understanding of the options that they had for treatment, but it also built more trust and engagementbetween the patient and the health care provider, which is valuable. The study also revealed that by using the decision aid, patients were more concerned with the quality of their life after treatment than extending the number of years of life.

Developing decision support systems for prostate cancer is paramount as we move towards an era of precision medicine treatments, such as proton therapies, which are used only after decision support system plans are in place for the prostate cancer survivor.

Often, the conversations between health care providers and the patient are focused around the quantity of life. The patients in our study said they felt empowered enough through the use of the decision aid to discuss quality of life, and how that was a critical aspect within their conversations.

There is much work to do to provide optimal health care to patients with cancer, including African-Americans with cancer. Tailored decision aids that focus on the priorities of the patient and their caregivers and that promote trusting relationships with health care providers is key to helping patients feel satisfied with their health care decisions and have less regret.

How To Become Visible Through Personal Branding in the Social Age

For some professionals, personal branding is a must—while for others it seems like a distraction in this social age. But we can assure you that it’s not. Being visible in this digital era no matter what industry you work in or your level of expertise is extremely critical for your professional and personal brand. In other words, if you want to shine where you are or want to level up, you have to position yourself to be seen on and offline.

Jacqueline Jones, head of Strategic Partnerships at LinkedIn; Rita Mitjans, chief diversity & corporate social responsibility officer at ADP; Monica W. Peterson, director of Affiliate Vehicle Planning and Pricing Product Planning & Strategy at Toyota Motor North America Inc.; and Yolanda Murphy, vice president of Communications at Northrop Grumman Technology Services dived deeply into how women can present their best-selves during the 14th Annual Women of Power Summit.

personal branding

The Visible Woman: Personal Branding in a Social Age panel at the Women of Power Summit

First things first, your online portfolio whether it’s your personal website or LinkedIn holds more value than you think.

“Make sure that you are able to articulate and present the brand that you want others to see. Social media gives you the power to represent yourself the way you want to be,” said Mitjans.

To that point, Peterson said, “be intentional about what your LinkedIn profile has in there.”

Use Social Platforms to Your Advantage:

  • Update your profile picture
  • Be clear about who you are, what you do, and the value you add in your biography
  • Make sure that your information is accurate and up to date
  • Share your expertise by blogging, engaging with other thought leaders, and sharing articles

It’s been said that the best time to look for a new job is on the first day of your new job, but, when it comes to personal branding and job searching that same logic does not apply. “You don’t just update LinkedIn when you’re looking for new jobs,” Peterson added.

And Jones couldn’t agree more as a leader at LinkedIn. She believes that social platforms give people of color the opportunity to tap into economic power.

Consistency is also key

“If your employers can see your profile and it represents a different person than you bring to work every day, you need to re-evaluate what you’re posting,” said Peterson.

Murphy got serious about personal branding in 2014 when she realized how important it was to tell her story.

“What I’ve come to learn is that it’s a form of currency. For example, look at your savings account…you’re investing so that you can get something back in return – a return on your investment. Your personal brand is no different. It’s something that is returning dividends to you and your company or those who you choose to do business with.”

Another tactic Murphy uses to manage her brand is to be selective about what she shares publicly. This allows her to engage in topics she wants to be a part of and those that serve her personal brand.

“I’ll talk about my kids, I’ll talk about communications. I don’t talk about money, faith, or politics. I set boundaries for what I will and will not talk about,” she added.

Personal branding in the social age also lends itself to the opportunity to build relationships offline so that you can land different opportunities.

“Partner with corporate communications. Pitch corporate comms your story and why you would be a great representative and how your story exemplifies what they are trying to say,” said Jones.

The general consensus when it comes to personal branding is to craft your narrative, share it, and shine! Finding the right strategy for your personal brand online comes with time but you can get started today with this expert advice.

50 Cent Sets His Gucci Clothes On Fire And Jamie Foxx Comes Through With More Altering Suggestions

The Gucci brand found itself in hot water after the blackface scandal. Now, 50 Cent sets his Gucci clothes on fire and posts it on Instagram. Watch his video below.

‘I gotta get rid of all the Gucci I have at home. I’m not supporting their brand anymore. #bransoncognac #lecheminduroi #bellator,’ 50 Cent captioned her post.

Someone addressed rapper Tip and said ‘@troubleman31 ya should have a “Burn The House Down” (or similar clever name event where ya bring all your name brand clothes (those involved) and burn it!!! Make money off THEM! #FlipTheScript‼ @50cent … IF YOU AGREE REPLY TO THIS COMMENT & TAG YOUR FAVORITE ARTIST #ActionsSpeakLouderThanWords 💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽💪🏽💯💯💯💯💯

Someone has a proposal for 50 Cent and said: ‘@50cent why not buy up more of their brands and take it to the slumps or war-wrecked countries, make the video of you donating their brands to this homeless war wrecked people, make a video documentary till the Gucci turns to rags within few days, then send this video out. Gucci is then for the poor.’

Another follower bashed him and said ‘This is an act of stupidity, there are less privileged out there, and you are here burning down Gucci what of dollars and you want us to clap for you.’

Here’s another similar opinion: ‘Like I said people like this and @troubleman31 are dumb as hell, burning your Gucci clothes that u spent ur hard earned money on? Hating on a brand that made a mistake, took it down and apologized immediately right after, then hating and bashing another brother cause he wanted to shop there minding his own?

This shit wack and corny what y’all doing, people, black & white still shop there and work in there as well, what u Gonna do hate Gucci’s forever. This is very low.’

Even Jamie Foxx commented on his post and here’s what he had to say.

One of The Shade Room’s followers said that ‘He should have donated it to the homeless. It’s already been purchased so what’s the harm in making some good out of a bad situation.’

Kourtney Kardashian – Here’s What The KUWK Star Wants To Teach People Through Her Co-Parenting With Scott Disick

It is a well-known fact to Keeping Up with the Kardashians fans that Kourtney Kardashian and her ex, Scott Disick are better co-parents to their three kids than most! That being said, the reality TV star got candid about their co-parenting relationship and revealed why it’s important for it to work, aside from the sake of their young ones.

Kourt and Scott have been through a lot in their nine-years-long relationship before putting an end to it, but nowadays, they seem to be in a great place!

As fans know, the exes often go on vacations together with the children, and some of those have even included the man’s current girlfriend, Sofia Richie, which only proves how healthy their co-parenting is!

While stopping by the Today Show on Thursday, Kourtney got candid about her and Scott’s relationship and what message she’s trying to send through it.

‘I feel like I can show a message, too, of like parents can get along and work together and travel together. And I think it’s a good message to show other people. I am not doing it for that reason, but I think the positive things that we are doing is nice too,’ the mother of three shared.

The Kardashian was a guest during the third hour of the show to also promote her cosmetics reform.

This comes nearly a year after Kourtney met up with congressional leaders and discussed updating the cosmetics legislation so the products generally used would no longer contain dangerous chemicals.

She has now teamed up with the Environmental Working Group to reach that goal.

‘I shouldn’t have to be standing in the bathroom scanning to know what products I am using are safe or not safe. Especially products for my kids,’ the star argued.

5 Ways to Increase Your Net Worth Through Your Network

You’ve probably heard the saying, “your network equals your net worth,” or to put it another way—it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. Those with affluence and influence tend to network with those with similar attributes. You can increase your net worth through your network.

However, networking isn’t just about connecting with people who have money but with those who have influence and can open doors for you. But how do you become a master networker?

Five Ways to Increase Your Net Worth Through Your Network 

Go where you’re most uncomfortable 

Lisa Nichols, a transformational coach says, “You will never find your next best version of you sitting inside of your comfort zone.” If the opportunity to rise to the next level means getting into rooms, showing up in places, and having conversations with those whom you wouldn’t normally talk to, then it’s time to take a deep breath and step out on that limb.

Assess your network 

Your network is bigger than you think. It’s your classmates from every level of education. As an alumnus of Northwestern University, I was able to connect with classmates, professors, and other graduates to land one of my highest paying jobs back in 2008, and increase my income by $ 25,000 when I switched jobs. Unfortunately, most people discredit their connections with their colleges even though every college has an alumni association and network. Also, don’t disregard your church connections, or people you do business with like your doctors, hair stylists, bankers, and others.

Prepare in advance for networking events 

Prepare for networking events by knowing beforehand what you want to discuss and who you want to meet.

Show up early to networking events

Busy people often show up early to networking events and don’t always stay the entire time. The person you may want to meet at an event may not be there if you arrive too late.

Follow Up 

It’s important to follow-up after a networking event. Not only with new relationships, but with those you may have met before. Another way to reconnect is to share an article that might be beneficial to them or invite them to an event that they could benefit them.

Celeb Moments Were Plentiful Through Dull Super Bowl

ATLANTA (AP) — Not everyone is watching Super Bowl 53 for the love of football — celebrities are a big part of the day, too. Here’s a breakdown of what is happening with entertainers on Sunday in Atlanta.

___

GLADYS KNIGHT, CHLOE X HALLE FILLED WITH JOY

Gladys Knight was all smiles as she blew kisses to everyone, and Chloe x Halle were almost speechless after their pregame performance at Super Bowl 53.

 

Knight called her rendition of the “The Star-Spangled Banner” an “exciting moment” and “one to remember” in the tunnel of the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, where the New England Patriots played the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday in Atlanta. The 74-year-old singer was all smiles as she thanked everyone who supported her through the controversy involving performers who were criticized for performing at the NFL’s marquee game.

Before Knight performed, the R&B sister duo Chloe x Halle sang “America the Beautiful.” The group said their experience was “wonderful” and were “thankful to God” for the opportunity.

Both Knight and Chloe x Halle put on strong performances. They have been surrounded by the controversy after some have boycotted the NFL over treatment of Colin Kaepernick, the former quarterback who protested racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem.

While some performers declined participation in the Super Bowl, Knight said she hoped her anthem would unite people.

Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi will headline the halftime show at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

JAMIE FOXX TAKES SELFIES WITH CIVIL RIGHTS ICONS

Jamie Foxx took several selfies with civil rights pioneers John Lewis and Andrew Young on the sidelines before kickoff at Super Bowl 53.

After taking pictures with them, Foxx shook Lewis and Young’s hand then told them they inspire him. Lewis and Young were sitting in the back of the golf cart while Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s youngest daughter Bernice King sat in the front.

Beforehand, Foxx strolled down the sideline and took videos of the crowd at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium as many chanted his name before the New England Patriots faced the Los Angeles Rams in Atlanta on Sunday. The Oscar-winning actor said he is a longtime fan of the Dallas Cowboys, but he is rooting for the Patriots.

“I’m going with Tom Brady today,” Foxx said. “I think he’s going to pull it off.”

Foxx bet on the right quarterback — Brady’s Patriots defeated the Rams 13-3.

Foxx said he’s been coming to the Super Bowl for many years calling each time a “different experience.” He performed at the Maxim party that also featured Future and Diplo on Saturday night.

“Every year, it’s special. It’s great. It’s nothing like football,” he said.

CELEBS & ATHLETES MINGLE

Ex-NBA player Steve Smith was around and  Jon Hamm, Swizz Beatz and Camila Mendes all shared the same luxury suite. They were only a couple doors away from Maroon 5 and Big Boi, who performed at halftime of the game.

“I loved Maroon 5’s performance. They rocked it,” said retired NFL player Curtis Martin, who played for the New York Jets and Patriots. “Travis (Scott) and Big Boi was amazing too. I liked how they mixed things up. Big gave that ATL flavor.”

Director Peter Berg said Maroon 5’s frontman Adam Levine “really delivered.”

Asked what Berg’s best moment was: “When he took his shirt off. I was like ‘Damn, looking good.’”

___

KEY STAR-STRUCK

Keegan-Michael Key is a celebrity in his own right, but the actor-comedian still gets star-struck when hanging around NFL players.

“The thing is being backstage with a lot of them. You turn the corner and it’s like ‘Oh, there’s J.J. Watt. Oh, nice to meet you. Oh, there goes Barry Sanders running around. It’s nice to be behind-the-scenes. You get to meet a lot of the players. I’m such an NFL fan.”

Key, who starred in the Comedy Central series “Key & Peele,” said his favorite player Charles Woodson played a role in the “East-West College Bowl” skit. Woodson won a Super Bowl with the Green Bay Packers in 2011.

“We met last year for the first time, and it was an important time,” Key said. “He gave us so much inspiration for that episode.”

Key hopes he can one day see Beyonce sing the national anthem and perform during halftime at the same Super Bowl. She was a halftime performer in 2013 and 2016.

“Now, that would be awesome if she could pull that off,” he said. “I really want to see her make that happen. I think she can. I mean, she’s Beyonce.”

Boys Will Be Boys. Covington’s Showed Yet Again Why Only White Boys Can Smirk Through That.

Photo Illustration by Lyne Lucien/The Daily Beast

Boys will be boys.

We expect them to rough-house, crash their father’s Volvo, have one too many beers and get caught pissing outside at least once in their lives. As a society, we have come to accept the skirt-chasing, even when that “skirt” is not interested. Male aggression is all too often embraced and rewarded as crassness and hyper-masculinity remain, unfortunately, a celebrated trait in some quarters, allowing men and boys a time-honored, unearned discount—a point of privilege that allows them to evade responsibility for minor and sometimes even egregious acts of wrongdoing.

Except that old “rule” does not apply to all boys and men.

Brain plasticity restored in adult mice through targeting specific nerve cell connections

Research in mice finds a new molecular mechanism that is essential for maturation of brain function and may be used to restore plasticity in aged brains. Unlike previous research that broadly manipulated brain plasticity and affected the entire brain, this work targets for the first time a specific molecule acting on a single type of neuronal connection to modulate brain function. The findings may advance treatment of human diseases such as autism and stroke.

The authors of a study found that a large percentage of healthy babies don’t start sleeping through the night even at a year old.

Magical mystery tour: a road trip through Mexico

Kicking off at a raucous Day of the Dead party, this odyssey takes in indigenous culture rarely seen by outsiders, with plenty of music and laughs along the way

I’m lying on the grass in the churchyard in Huaquechula, a small town in the state of Puebla, central Mexico. I open my eyes and look up. A man dressed in eagle feathers is standing on top of a 30-metre telegraph pole banging a small drum, and four other men are climbing up towards him. When the four reach the top, they attach ropes to their ankles and lean far back, arms out, until they are upside down. Then the eagle-man starts to dance and sing.
