Tesla may bring back free Supercharger access for a limited time to boost sales

Tesla Supercharger

Tesla is far from a company in disarray, but there’s no denying that Tesla management has waffled on a number of issues with alarming frequency as of late. Just a few weeks ago, for example, Tesla announced that it would be closing the majority of its physical stores, only to backtrack a short while later. Further, some of the pricing schemes and available vehicle configurations offered by Tesla seemingly tend to change with no rhyme or reason.

Keeping this trend going, a new report from Electrek relays that Tesla may bring back free Supercharger access for new purchases as part of a broader effort to boost sales. If you recall, Tesla this past-September ended its free Supercharger program for all new purchases.

Screen Time and You: How Do You Limit Your Screen Time?

stock photo of woman scrolling through Instagram feed in front of a computer screen

I’ve seen a lot of chatter about screen time limits lately — especially since screen time is now so easy to track on your iPhone! — and I thought it might make an interesting discussion here. Over at CorporetteMoms today we’re discussing screen time rules that work for policing kids — but do you use any strategies to limit your own screen time, such as screen time apps and tools (like those on the iPhone or available through some WiFi routers), detox days, or other habits (like the “phone stack” game)?

For my $ .02, I should definitely take more of a screen time detox than I do. I’ve been spending far too much time on Twitter and Facebook following political events, so I’ve been trying to track and limit my use of social media. I was a bit dismayed to find that simply setting a screen time limit for Social Media on my iPhone wasn’t super helpful — Messages are included in that category, and a lot of my texting is for kid-related things that I can’t really disconnect from, plus things that I think are actually healthy, like connecting with my husband and friends. So now I tend to limit things by app rather than by category. (See the image below if you’re curious for how to do it; it took me some time to figure out.)

Other healthy habits to limit my own screen time include 1) trying to put my phone away during family dinner (when I grab it, it’s usually to track my food for the day) and 2) attempting to enforce a screen time “bedtime,” where only my Kindle is allowed after 11:30 p.m. 

Obviously, my work is online, and a big part of my work is social media stuff like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, so I can’t limit them entirely, but it is always helpful when I can. I’ve tried the app Forest, which rewards you for putting down your phone for specified periods, but I can’t say I use it consistently — a lot of times, I’m legitimately picking up my phone for work or mom stuff! (After writing this post, I decided I’m going to try to use the app when I’m trying to take a phone detox, like during dinner or on Sundays.)

If you haven’t checked your own screen time (and have an iPhone), you can go to Settings -> Screen Time (for me it’s at the bottom of the second grouping). For the last 7 days on iPhone and iPad I’ve spent… oooh, not good:

  • Safari: 6 hrs. 25 min.
  • Facebook: 5 hrs. 41 min.
  • Messages: 4 hrs. 51 min.
  • Stupid game I play after the kids go to bed: 4 hrs. 51 min. (facepalm)
  • Twitter: 3 hrs. 18 min. 

I prefer to see things broken down by individual app rather than categories — you can then add individual limits to the apps. (See image below of where you add the limit on the individual app.) Note that these generally aren’t HARD limits — you’ll just get a little notice that basically says, “Hey, your screen time is up; enter the screen time passcode if you want more time.” Then you can give yourself another 15 minutes, an hour, or ignore the limit entirely. I also have general Screen Time Downtime (another iPhone option within the Screen Time page) from 10:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m., when almost every app on my phone requires the passcode before I can use it. (You can also “always allow” apps like phone, messages, FaceTime, Dropbox, Sleep Cycle, etc.) 

Psst: we’ve talked in the past about how to limit your time on specific websites on Chrome, as well as our top 5 ways to improve your focus.

How about you guys — what is your relationship with screen time? Do you try to limit your own screen time, and if so how do you do it?

How do you limit your screen time? Digital detox is good for adults too—so let's talk best screen time habits, including how to limit screen time per app.

How the New Avengers: Endgame Trailer Hints At a Major Time Jump

Warning: This post contains potential spoilers for Avengers: Endgame.

Looks like Marvel fans may be in for a time jump when Avengers: Endgame, the sequel to Avengers: Infinity War and the conclusion of a decade of Marvel Cinematic Universe movies that began with Iron Man in 2008, hits theaters on April 26.

In a new trailer for Avengers: Endgame, the original Avengers — including Iron Man (Tony Stark, played by Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Steve Rogers, played by Chris Evans) and Thor (Chris Hemsworth) — mull over their time as superheroes as they plan to make one last-ditch effort to save those who disintegrated when Thanos snapped his fingers to eliminate half of all life in the universe.

But how long after that fatal snap the events of Endgame will take place is still up for debate. In the new trailer, we see Black Widow (Natasha Romanoff, played by Scarlett Johansson) sporting both a longer blonde cut as well as a never-before-seen red ombre ‘do, two styles that differ drastically from the short blonde lob she had in Infinity War. And as Vanity Fair writer Joanna Robinson pointed out on Twitter, that dramatic of a transformation likely indicates a significant time jump.

“They’ve stopped trying to conceal the big time jump (clock Natasha’s hair) which is intriguing,” Robinson wrote, adding a photo of Black Widow’s new style with the caption, “We’re in the endgame now…or…like…eventually…in a few years I guess.”

We also get the added bonus of seeing Thor meet Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers, played by Brie Larson) for the first time.

Soccer Dad May Have Pulled Off the Most Hilarious Parenting Hack of All Time

One rad dad figured out a way to have his cake and eat it, too — by enjoying a soccer game while entertaining his young daughter, that is.

At a recent Atlanta United Football Club game, a father enjoyed his hot dog during the National Anthem, while showing his daughter some kind of entertainment on his iPhone as the toddler sat comfortably in contentment.

The video, originally posted on Instagram by another soccer fan, quickly gained traction on Twitter and Instagram. Some people thought the tactic was a genius parenting move.

Even the Twitter account behind Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Ga., the team’s home stadium, voiced support for the dad’s clever move.

Atlanta United definitely backed up the father’s choices, too, asking followers to identify the fan in order to reward him with a star for his jersey.

The team did not immediately respond to TIME’s request for comment.

Spring Forward Signals Daylight Saving Time and … Jet Lag?

March 10, 2019, is the start of daylight saving time. Daylight saving time normally signals the incoming spring season and extra sunshine in the evenings for those late walks, but some people, like parents with young children, are dreading the hour of sleep we are all going to lose on Sunday — and the effects can be noticeable.

We are living in a time when numerous studies are showing that one-third of Americans are sleep deprived and weekend sleep can’t quite make up for our reduced sleep time during the work week! Basically, if you’re already somewhat sleep-deprived, giving up just 1 hour of shut-eye can negatively impact how you feel and function during the day; it’s as if you are experiencing a mild case of jet lag.

“This is due to your body’s internal clock, also known as circadian rhythm, being thrown off,” said Dennis Hwang, MD, at Kaiser Permanente Southern California Sleep Center in San Bernardino, California. “During daylight saving time, the internal sleep clock becomes misaligned. This complex timekeeper is controlled by areas of the brain that respond to light and can suppress the release of melatonin and affect your ability to sleep.”

While this shift is unlikely to cause serious health consequences, a disruption in your circadian rhythm does not only affect your ability to sleep but can also affect the function of many of your body’s systems. In addition to sleepiness, it can cause:

  • Problems with concentration and mental functioning
  • Neurologic symptoms
  • Stomach and intestinal symptoms
  • Elevations in blood pressure and heart rate (and can possibly even lead to irregular heartbeats)

Dr. Hwang offers tips to prepare for daylight saving time and to reset your internal clock:

  • A couple days before daylight saving time, start going to bed 15-20 minutes earlier than your normal bedtime (or at least go to bed earlier on the night of the time change).
  • Sleep an extra half hour on the morning of daylight saving time.
  • A dose of 0.25 to 1 mg of melatonin about 2 hours before bedtime can sometimes help you fall asleep.
  • Reduce your caffeine intake (and consume none after lunchtime).
  • Avoid alcohol and exercising before bedtime.
  • Put your phone (and tablets/computers) away at least an hour before bedtime!
  • When using your electronic device in the night, wearing blue-light blocking glasses or turning on the blue light filter on your phone or tablet can be good for your sleep.
  • Spend some time with your family and enjoy a relaxing evening at home.

Carnival time in Québec, Canada

The author of Chocolat finds fun, folk music and echoes of her past at Québec City’s winter festival and ventures into the province to find its spiritual heart

I arrive on the wind of the carnival. A rather unexpected wind, causing chaos throughout the city, and bringing with it the worst snowstorm of the winter. Over 30 inches of snow has fallen on Québec overnight, and it looks like an etching dating from some more primitive time, when wolves would cross the frozen rivers and prowl between the buildings.

It’s a place that has been calling me for years. Growing up in Yorkshire, the child of a local man and a French woman, I learnt to understand my dual culture by means of songs and folklore. French and English folk songs have more than a little in common and, over centuries, have crossed the sea to the New World, leaving fragments of themselves wherever they have come to land.

Rick Santorum: Trump Lies All the Time So Why Are Russia Lies ‘Any Different?’

CNN political commentator Rick Santorum has offered a rather unique defense of President Trump’s misrepresentations on all things Russia-related: The president lies about everything. So what’s the big deal when he lies about Russia?

At the start of Wednesday’s much-anticipated House Oversight Committee hearing, former Trump attorney and “fixer” Michael Cohen labeled the president a “conman” who has repeatedly lied about his communications with Russia and WikiLeaks. Cohen further speculated that Special Counsel Robert Mueller likely has evidence showing Trump and longtime adviser Roger Stone spoke about a WikiLeaks email dump in advance during the 2016 election.

Hours after the hearing, CNN anchor Anderson Cooper asked Santorum to elaborate on an earlier debate he’d had with CNN political analyst and Watergate legend Carl Bernstein.

Karl Lagerfeld’s Best Chanel Red Carpet Looks of All Time

Karl Lagerfeld has designed no shortage of memorable red carpet looks.
The late Chanel fashion designer was tasked with dressing both his muses, such as Cara Delevingne and Keira Knightley, along with A-list celebrities during awards season, including Emma Stone and Margot Robbie.

No stranger to the Met Gala red carpet, Lagerfeld was responsible for the looks for both Yara Shahidi and Lily-Rose Depp’s first times attending the annual costume event. Shahidi, for example, attended her first Met Gala last year wearing a Chanel Couture tulle dress with an intricate full-length beading.

Chanel spokeswomen, Julianne Moore and Marion Cotillard, also have a long history of being dressed in Lagerfeld’s creations. Most notably, Moore picked up her first Academy Award in 2015 wearing a Chanel Couture gown made with 80,000 sequins.

Kim Kardashian Slams Theory She’s Selling Her Looks to Fashion Nova Ahead of Time: ‘I Don’t Support What These Companies Are Doing’ [Video]

Kim Kardashian has been accused of selling her high-end designer looks to fast-fashion brands like Fashion Nova to make a profit — but the reality star says that’s not the case.

Earlier this week, Kim wore a vintage one-of-a-king Mugler dress. The following day, a knock-off version appeared on Fashion Nova’s website with a waitlist ready for purchase.

According to Kim, Fashion Nova (and other fast-fashion retailers) simply work fast in effort to capitalize on what she wore.

There’s a twist though — days before Kim wore the dress, a Fashion Nova model posted pictures of herself at a photo shoot for the knock-off version. The photos on the screen appear to be labeled labeled ‘Kim Dress.’

 

View this post on Instagram

 

UPDATE: See stories for a screenshot of the date of the Capture One session (it’s labeled 02-14-19). Fashion Nova Mugler knockoff shot 4 days before Kim wore it on 02/18/19. Kim, you’ll never fess up to your sneaky lil collaborations, but we got all the receipts ?. • ????????? At some point recently, a fast fashion photo shoot happened featuring a vintage Mugler dress that @kimkardashian just happened to wear on Sunday night to the Hollywood Beauty Awards…and yes, it appears to be a real dress, not photoshop. Ahead of Fashion Nova releasing the dress at 9pm EST tonight, house model Yodit Yemane may or may not have accidentally leaked a story 2.5 hours earlier of photo options from her shoot featuring the Mugler replica. The file names were even labeled “Kim dress” while it’s now being called “Winning Beauty Cut Out Gown” lol. This begs the question: Did Fashion Nova whip up the dress overnight in their Los Angeles atelier after seeing Kim in it or is she peddling her vintage finds to mass retailers ahead of debuting them for a calculated, timely release? ????????? • ? : Getty • #kimkardashian #mugler #thierrymugler #manfredthierrymugler #bodycon #cutout #barelythere #strappy #straps #black #vintage #dress #velvet #fashionnova #wiwt #ootd #kuwtk #hollywood #beauty #kkwbeauty #kardashian #ecommerce #shady #smh #photoshoot #model #fashionmodel #dietprada

How a 19th-Century Frenchman Nailed Love for All Time

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

For all of the works of prose that focus on the subject of love—surely the greatest theme and mystery in literature—it’s curious how rarely authors get clinical about the subject. To break it down. To pin it to a dissecting tray, fold back the layers, and say, “see that part over there? That makes for skipped heart beats. This part here, that takes care of the arousal. This middle bit, that’s when you know you’re hooked.”

But if ever there was a born literary dissector, that would be the Frenchman Marie-Henri Beyle, better known as the novelist Stendhal. He went by a lot of different names in France in the first half of the 19th century, being King Pseudonym. He disliked his father, thinking he wasn’t creative enough, and doted on his mother, who died when he was seven.

He dug the military and the theater, serving in Napoleon’s army, engineering a rescue on a river that was much discussed, then sojourning in Italy where he picked up some dandified ways, which played well in Paris, where he went through woman after woman. You might say Stendhal dated serially; or you might say he had a thing for racking up sexual conquests.

The 18 Best Black Books of All Time for Black History Month

Black History Month is underway, and black people are getting all the feels that come with historical blackness. The month of February signifies a celebration of all things black. Together, we collectively acknowledge the African American experience—dating back to 1619 when the first enslaved African pressed his feet onto American soil. It is only right to pay homage to our ancestors’ malleability, black excellence, and those who have impacted our history as well as the culture. It is also a good time to soak up all the unknown stories and marvels of our heritage. Plenty is surfacing online via social media. However, black books are the ultimate source to immerse ourselves in the resilience and wonderment of blackness past and present.

18 Best Black Books for Black History Month 

 

1. Incidents in the Life Of A Slave Girl

This slave narrative by Harriet Ann Jacobs was originally published in 1861 just as the American Civil War began. Jacobs fictionalized her own story on the horrors of slave life as a young girl, specifically one having to deal with the sexual harassment projected by her slaveholder and the physical violence of his jealous wife.

2. The Marrow of Tradition

Charles W. Chesnutt was a prolific black writer who could very well pass for white but refused to. This historical text, published at the turn of the century, depicts the Wilmington Race Riots in 1898. It focuses on racial politics, violence, and blackface during Reconstruction, and sadly, echoes events happening today.

James Weldon Johnson, the creator of the black national anthem, “Lift Every Voice And Sing,” shares the story of being raised by a black mother, but also believing that he was as white as his school-age peers due to his biracial heritage. His loss of innocence comes as he is discriminated against by his teacher. Throughout the text, Johnson gives firsthand accounts and observations of occupying two racial spaces, fitting into neither, yet being forced to choose one.

5. Invisible Man

This existential text told the story of a lone, nameless black man navigating a white world and, eventually, we find him so isolated from society to align and protect himself from the powers that be. It is an allegory for the entire black race, which is mistreated, objectified, commodified, and cast aside in such a way that it may as well be invisible.

Christianity has close ties to the black American experience, and in many instances it is inextricable. Baldwin puts the beauty and the problematic on the page by way of a young man attempting to negotiate being black, religious, unloved, and possibly gay. Go Tell It On The Mountain is an exploration of identity and migration.

Alex Haley’s family tree is the context for Roots.

For Some Kids, Measles Becomes a Time Bomb With No Cure

Courtesy Jaxon’s Cure

Jaxon Abalahin was a happy and seemingly healthy 5-year-old who had just returned home from what his mother would describe as “a great day at kindergarten” in February of 2005.

He then suddenly had difficulty speaking. His head began to dip forward in a kind of fast nod every few seconds.

His alarmed parents — Paula and Oscar Abalahin of Port Orchard, Washington — took him to a pediatrician, who referred them to a pediatric neurologist, who began a long series of tests. The neurologist put Jaxon on anti-seizure medicine, but his condition inexorably deteriorated.

No Time Limit on Equality: Tell Congress to Ratify the ERA!

The Equal Rights Amendment makes a simple promise: “Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex.”

The 2018 election victories declared that feminists were a force to be reckoned with, and that we will not go back. But the fight goes on, and this is a critical moment for us to move forward and advance equality. That’s why Ms. and the Feminist Majority Foundation will be taking to the streets at Women’s Marches across the country this weekend to grow support for the Equal Rights Amendment—and demand that Congress remove the time limit for its ratification.

You don’t have to find our team in the crowd to take action: You can send your Representative and Senators an email today urging them to put women in the U.S. Constitution and help pass the ERA.

More than ever, it’s time for us to demand that the nation fulfill its promise of equality for all—and guarantee women the same.

Her work has also appeared at BuzzFeed, Bitch, Mic, MEL, Everyday Feminism and Autostraddle. Like everyone else in LA, she once had a podcast; unlike everyone else, she stays pretty zen in traffic.

VidCon 7th Annual Convention ‘Behind the Book’, Anaheim, USA – 24 Jun 2016

In 2009, brothers Hank and John Green founded a grassroots movement in sunny SoCal to celebrate the vlogging community. Now, ten years and 90,000 attendees later, Vidcon, the ultimate vlogging event is hitting London for the first time on 14th February.

The four-day event will include featured creators such as lifestyle vlogger and podcaster Marcus Butler, the UK’s top female gamer on YouTube, LDShadow Lady, and Mark Hoyle AKA LadBaby.

Even the uninitiated should recognise the Hoyle, who as well as being voted Celebrity Dad of the Year in 2018, also bagged the 2018 Christmas No.1 spot with his spoof song ‘We Built This City… On Sausage Rolls’ and donated all proceeds from the sale of the track to The Trussell Trust, a foodbank charity.

With the line-up also including names such as American YouTuber Joey Graceffa (who has over 2.2 billion views on his YouTube channel) and Family Fizz (who have 1.5m subscribers), you can learn the tricks of the trade from those who know them best. There’ll even be brand activations from huge companies including Facebook and Instagram.

This year, VidCon have introduced single day tickets, meaning that even more fans can watch the exclusive panels on Saturday and Sunday. The events will showcase the best online video has to offer, thanks to a huge range of creators. With panel topics including My Online Life vs. My Offline Life, Gamers Unite and LGBTQ+: Coming Out Online, there is truly something for everyone.

For those who opt for the full four-day experience, there is even more to look forward to, whether that’s the Meet & Greet Lottery, or the Friday night Opening Show on the main stage.

The full line-up is available here and tickets are available to buy on the VidCon website.

VidCon has been at the forefront of video creation and vlogging since its foundation in 2009: this is the event for any budding influencer.

Controlling children’s behavior with screen time leads to more screen time, study reveals

Researchers investigated the impact of parenting practices on the amount of time young children spend in front of screens. They found a majority of parents use screen time to control behavior, especially on weekends. This results in children spending an average of 20 minutes more a day on weekends in front of a screen. Researchers say this is likely because using it as a reward or punishment heightens a child’s attraction to the activity.

Wendy Williams Extends Her Hiatus for the SECOND TIME, Pushes Show Return Back ANOTHER Week Amid Health Struggles and Husband’s Cheating Scandal

Wendy Williams is taking yet another week off amid months of health struggles and her husband’s alleged cheating scandal.

‘The Wendy Williams Show’ was initially supposed to return from hiatus on January 7th, but after announcing the start date Wendy’s team canceled it and said she’d return to work on January 14th.

Now, just days before the show was rescheduled to start, Wendy Show producers confirm that she won’t be returning on the 14th and will instead return one week later — on January 21st.

Until then, they will bring on a panel of “Hot Talkers” to replace Wendy until she comes back.

“As she has for the past 10 years, Wendy delivers an incomparable live talk show day in and day out and we want to give her the best opportunity to heal and recover,” Debmar-Mercury co-presidents Mort Marcus and Ira Bernstein said. “Wendy has our complete and unwavering support and we look forward to her return to the iconic purple chair.”

Producers cite her recent shoulder injury as reason for her delay, but as we’ve said Wendy’s friends are said to be concerned for her wellbeing and believe she might be self-medicating. 

Sidebar: You may have heard, but did you know Wendy sent us a cease and desist letter for talking about her alleged personal struggles?

Destinations for first time skiers

ADVERTISEMENT


Picking up a new sport can be a challenging experience but fun nonetheless. Whether you’re going to keep up with the sport after your initial trials largely depends on the type of experience or instruction you get at this time. That’s why it’s important to choose a learning place where all your sporting needs will be catered for and you’ll be in the hands of great and experienced instructors.

This should be the case with skiing. As a first time skier, the area you decide to give the sport your first try should be beginner friendly. If not, you’ll probably end up frustrated and give up the sport early. Good beginner skiing areas should be able to first of all have gentle slopes that are not too challenging. This is where starters will easily pick up basics before they take up more advanced runs. Instructors to offer lessons and skiing courses should also be part of the package, along with hire services for ski equipment. Here are some of the skiing destinations that are ideal for first time skiers.

1. Champoluc, Italy

There are many factors that make this one of the best areas for skiing beginners. At Ski 2, there’s provision of tuition which is vital to any beginner. There’s also equipment hire, so you don’t have to spend money on expensive skiing equipment that you may never use again if you decide that skiing isn’t your kind of thing. To make it even more accommodating to first timers, there’s a school on the establishment that’s purposely for guests. Alongside expert instructors, the schools also provide equipment to learners. Bring in the countless hotels available in this area and the perfect skiing holiday is complete.

2. Soldeu, Andorra

Nobody wants to break the bank for something that might turn out to be a temporary endeavour, and that’s exactly why Soldeu is such an ideal destination for first time skiers who haven’t yet found their footing in the sport. There are extremely good prices which undoubtedly make the sport worth trying. What makes this place even more cost friendly is the fact that it’s duty free. With 2 nursery slopes spanning a wide area which are gentle, getting started becomes easier. There’s also English-speaking ski instructors so language barrier is not an issue and everybody is well accommodated.

3. Méribel, France

The beginner experience is made easier at Méribel with gentle nursery slopes and tuition programmes that get any willing skier started off on the right foot. There’s even a group course for beginners. With three zones dedicated sorely to first timers, this is a great place to learn the basics without jostling with pros. Good news for the pocket too, access to these zones is absolutely free. These can be found in the Mottaret, Platieres and Chatelet areas.

4. Les Arcs, France

At Les Arcs, each of the main villages at the resort have nursery slopes just above them. Along with this accessibility, there’s a free beginner’s lift. One of the areas hosts an award winning ski school, meaning that beginners are in the right hands here. As first times gain more experience they get to progress to more advanced slopes.

5. Bansko, Bulgaria

Bansko happens to be a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so there’s going to be the added advantage of marvelous sights alongside skiing. Beginners here get lessons, lift passes and cheap accommodation. There’s a gentle area to teach basics to starters, after which they get to explore exciting forest routes and open runs.

Penelope Cruz is reluctant to work with Javier Bardem all the time

OHMYGOSSIP — Penelope Cruz is wary about working with her husband Javier Bardem too often.
The Academy Award-winning actress has revealed she’s reluctant to appear alongside Javier, 49, in too many films, saying that the prospect of them working together every year is a “very scary” thought.
Penelope – who appears alongside her husband in the psychological thriller ‘Everybody Knows’ – explained: “Obviously we can’t choose parts just for logistical reasons, like ‘Oh let’s work together because it’s easier.’ No. In fact, it’s not something we want to do that often, partly out of desire to protect what we have.
“On the one hand, it’s easier because you know that person, he knows you, and the way you work is very similar.
“On the other hand, the idea of it happening every year is very scary. I think it’s better for it to just be once in a while, even though they’ve been very good experiences.”
Meanwhile, Penelope – who has kids Leo, seven, and Luna, five, with Javier – admitted motherhood has brought her more happiness than anything else in her life.
The 44-year-old actress confessed that having children with Javier has transformed her outlook on life, likening it to a “revolution”.
Penelope – who married Javier in 2010 – told Marie Claire magazine’s February issue: “It’s the thing that make me the happiest.
“But there are a lot of things that have surprised me about it. It’s like a revolution inside you – a very animal-like one.
“The whole world looks different. You’ll never think of yourself first again, and I think that’s a very good thing. It happens in a second.”

Barack Obama Debuts On Billboard With Remix Of ‘One Last Time’ From ‘Hamilton’

Former President Barack Obama has debuted on Billboard’s Hot R&B Songs chart at number 22 with his gospel-inspired remix of a song by Lin-Manuel Miranda that originally appeared in the hit Broadway musical “Hamilton.”

Obama’s “One Last Time (44 Remix)” dropped before Christmas as part of Miranda’s “Hamildrops” remixes and features cast member Christopher Jackson and gospel singer BeBe Winans.

Have a listen to the song via the player above.

Proceeds from sales of the remixes, which features various celebrities including “Weird Al” Yankovic and Mobb Deep, will reportedly go to charity.

The “One Last Time” entry is called the “44 Remix” and has Obama reading a passage from George Washington’s farewell address.

The track was the final selection of the 2018 “Hamildrop” series in which Miranda, a former substitute teacher, released remixes of tracks from his hit musical every month throughout the year.

As a reported “Hamilton” superfan, it is fitting that Obama would feature on a remix as the cast performed the original song at the White House for a student workshop during his presidency.

3 Things to Include in a Part Time Job Posting

Finding the perfect person for a part time position is
sometimes more difficult than finding a good full time candidate. Often,
qualified individuals look for part time positions for scheduling reasons. They
could be a student looking for a job that doesn’t interfere with their
coursework, a parent hoping to find a job that lets them pick their children up
from school on time, or a full time employee wanting to supplement their
current income.

Regardless of the reason a prospective employee might choose to work part time over full time, employers looking for no-brainer employees can make their positions more enticing for applicants by marketing job postings in specific ways.

In this post, we note three things employers can include in
their job posting to attract suitable part time applicants.

1. Clearly Indicate Part Time

This may seem like a no-brainer, but there are plenty of postings that fail to mention what type of position is being offered (full time, part time, temporary, or contract). Knowing what type of position you’re applying for at the outset is essential to most prospective candidates as it helps answer questions like “am I an employee or a subcontractor?” or “will I be able to work two jobs?”

Moreover, because the typical posting is for full time work, many people could wrongly assume your posting is for a full time position rather than part time. This confusion doesn’t benefit your company; it results in you or your hiring team interviewing more applicants who could potentially reject your Employment Offer Letter because it is for a part time position and not what they anticipated.

2. Expected Days of the Week

For potential part time employees, coordinating a schedule can be a lot of work, so, as an employer, you can assist potential candidates by indicating the days of the week your new hire would be expected to work. If there are no expected days and the position is flexible, that’s even better—let applicants know in your job posting.

Providing your expected days of work can help potential candidates
know that they are a good fit for a position before applying. It also helps
employers stay on track and not waste time by filtering out applicants that
cannot meet specific job requirements (like being unable to work on weekends
when weekends are required).

3. Expected Work Hours

Similar to providing the expected days of work, providing the number of hours you anticipate your employee will work is also helpful. Part time employment is typically determined by the number of hours the employee works per week and is generally considered to be any job where the employee works 30 hours or less per week.

The difference between a 10-hour, 20-hour, or 30-hour work
week is huge, both financially and organizationally. Informing potential
applicants of the number of hours they can expect to work can help prevent
unsuitable candidates from applying, once again helping to reduce the number of
resumes you’ll need to sift through to find the person you’re looking for.

Preparing Your Part Time Position Posting

Preparing a job posting can be a lot of work. For many
careers, creating a job posting means simplifying a complex position into a
couple of concise bullet points and turning that into a job advertisement.
Employers looking specifically for part time employees can attract more job
applicants by clearly indicating the job is part time and including the expected
work days and hours.

Robert Mueller Grand Jury Gets More Time to Consider Evidence, Issue Indictments

Robert Mueller’s grand jury in Washington, D.C., has received an extension of up to six months from the head judge of the D.C. district court to consider evidence and bring indictments. The grand jury was empaneled on July 6, 2017, and would have expired on Sunday without the extension.

Special Counsel Mueller, appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein to investigate whether and how Russia meddled in the 2016 presidential election, has indicted 33 people and three companies since his work began. He’s secured several convictions and guilty pleas, and some parties have already been sentenced or have completed their sentences. President Donald Trump consistently downplays the investigation, labeling it a “witch hunt,” and denying any “collusion” occurred between his campaign and Russian representatives.

Mueller’s indictments, accepted pleas, and convictions include:

Although other indictments have also been issued, it’s unclear how much work remains for the grand jury to sift through. But the judge’s action indicates that it’s not yet finished.

The special assistant to Chief Judge Beryl Howell confirmed to several media outlets, including The Hill, that a grand-jury extension past the original 18-month period had been granted, but denied a CNN report that the period was six months. Six months is the longest the judge can extend the special counsel’s grand jury.

A prosecutor presents evidence and examines witnesses before a grand jury, the deliberations of which must be kept secret by the participants, though those testifying may reveal their participation. The members of the grand jury can then vote whether an indictment should be issued. A prosecutor can bring charges even if the grand jury doesn’t agree, or can choose not to pursue an indictment a grand jury agrees on.

The Blast reports Shumpert was sentenced over his 2016 arrest for allegedly driving under the influence of drugs, marijuana possession and failure to maintain the lane, on December 18.

Shumpert reportedly entered a plea of no-contest to the DUI and guilty for the failure to maintain lane. According to The Blast, court records state the marijuana possession charge was disposed due to a Conditional Discharge law that exists in Georgia allowing first time drug offenders to complete classes on substance abuse instead of paying a steep price.

Shumpert was placed on probation and his criminal case was closed.

This Nonprofit Is Making Thousands of Kids Happy, One Skateboard at a Time

Kayden Batson kept asking his great-grandmother when he could pick out his very first skateboard.

His great-grandmother showed him two skateboards, and the 4-year-old picked the one with the rainbow sticker. The board was taller than he was, and he didn’t quite have the hang of riding it yet, but that didn’t matter – the skateboard was his and he loved it.

“I love it,” said Debra Griffen, Kayden’s 65-year-old great-grandmother. “I’ve never seen him this happy.”

Griffen planned to put the skateboard up until Christmas morning.

“This is Christmas,” she said.

Griffen threw her back out on the job and relies on an $ 800-a-month disability check to support herself and Kayden. With her limited income, buying a skateboard for her great-grandson would be too expensive.

Kayden would have just done without presents this year if it wasn’t for Boards for Bros.

What Is Boards for Bros?

A teenager builds a skateboard

The Skatepark of Tampa, an iconic Florida skatepark whose fans include Tony Hawk and Lil Wayne, started Boards for Bros as its nonprofit charity in 2006.

Boards for Bros is on a mission to make sure that all kids who want to own a nice skateboard can get one – for free.

“We help those kids who don’t want to play a team sport. We help the teenager in a foster care situation that can’t take a bike with them when they get shuffled from group home to home,” said Michelle Box, the executive director of Boards for Bros.

The nonprofit collects new and used skateboard equipment and cash donations throughout the year to build and distribute as many skateboards as possible to underserved communities.

It relies on volunteers and partnerships with other nonprofits and youth outreach programs to reach underprivileged and at-risk youths, especially during the holidays. Those volunteers give skateboarding demos and work with the kids to decorate their boards at community distribution events.

It’s not unusual for them to roll up to a local skatepark and hand out 100 skateboards to kids in need.

In 2018, Boards for Bros handed out more than 3,000 skateboards, double what they doled out in 2017.

Boards for Bros Holiday Giveaways

For Tonya Griffin, whose 2-year-old son Kameron Bryant also received a new skateboard at the Christmas distribution event in Largo, Florida, a free skateboard meant a little more financial wiggle room during the holidays.

She has to buy presents for three children on a $ 250 budget.  

“We’re stretching what we already have to pay the bills on top of giving the kids gifts,” she said. “It just helps us.”

The average cost for a nice skateboard setup including trucks, bearing, wheels, deck and grip tape is between $ 100 and $ 175, according to Ashley Rey, a Board for Bros volunteer who helped with the Christmas distribution.

Boards for Bros also gave out free skate shoes that day and helmets on another, which saves those caregivers even more money.

Skateboard Access for All

Boards for Bros’ mission is to break down the economic barriers so all kids have access to skateparks, not just the ones who can afford it.

“Most parks do not have rental equipment, so if a kid doesn’t have equipment, they can’t use the skateboard park,” Box said. “We just want to bridge that gap.”

Boards for Bros has year-round chapters in California, Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, New York and North Carolina, plus it holds sponsored events in Texas and Colorado. It has also sent skateboards to Bangladesh, Cuba and Honduras.

“We impact the lives of the kids who get those skateboards,” Box said. “Nobody can dispute the long-term impact it has on the kids and the families to be able to put down their phone and skate.”

And if the kids outgrow the skateboard? Box asks them to promise to pass it to another kid who is interested in skateboarding.

How to Get a Free Skateboard

While Box said Boards for Bros consider requests for skateboards on a case-by-case basis, especially in the Tampa Bay region, the best way to get your kid a skateboard is to ask their after-school program to reach out to Boards for Bros to set up an event.

If you’re interested in donating or participating in the Boards for Bros’ free skateboard program, check out boards4bros.org.

Not everybody who asks for a skateboard gets one, but the organization tries to work with as many people as possible because it believes every kid’s life is better with wheels.

First ‘Hellboy’ Trailer Arrives Just in Time; Here’s Everything We Know

There’s a new Hellboy on the block. Summit Entertainment’s reboot of the comic book movie franchise promises to be different style-wise than Guillermo del Toro’s 2004 take, but we can still anticipate a similar mix of brawn and banter from the titular demon-spawn character.

Darker is the supposed direction of this Hellboy, though that doesn’t show so much in the first trailer. David Harbour’s version of the big, red not-a-monster antihero is humorous, and the…

5 Obscure Aquaman Characters Who Deserve Screen Time

Aquaman’s solo movie will hit U.S. theaters soon, and fans can’t wait to see high-profile supporting characters like Mera and Vulko in action. But there are still quite a few Aquaman-adjacent and lesser-known characters who seems to be missing in action. So, here are five obscure comic book characters we would like to see in Aquaman, a future Worlds of DC film, or a DC animated movie.

Deep Blue


Deep Blue Aquaman

Deborah Perkins, better known as Deep Blue, is Aquaman’s half-sister. Though the siblings weren’t close for many years, Deep Blue eventually became a longtime ally to him after he asked all of the underwater kingdoms to unite against the Hunter/Gatherers. She stuck around for a while after that, assisting in various fights.

Because of her close family ties to Aquaman and the rest of the rest of the Aquaman Family, Deep Blue would be a good candidate to appear in a future Worlds of DC film. Her unique powerset — she can enlarge and control sea life, in particular — and long history would create interesting subplots in an Aquaman-centric film. Also, her connection to the next character would add much more drama to Arthur’s supporting cast.

Neptune Perkins


Neptune Perkins Aquaman

Another close ally to Aquaman, Neptune Perkins also happens to be the stepfather of Deep Blue. He was born with extraordinary powers, such as superhuman durability and animal empathy similar to Aquaman, due to his exposure to a powerful energy known as the Vril. He became an ally to the All-Star Squadron and ended up joining the Young All-Stars, where he met his future wife, Tsunami. Later, he joined his daughter when Aquaman called the underwater kingdoms together. Unfortunately, he was killed during Infinite Crisis.

In the comics, he eventually became a U.S. Senator for Hawaii and used his influence to monitor various superheroes. Since government involvement in superhero activities has been a major theme in recent films, it’s possible that we could see him as a politician playing a slightly antagonistic role towards the hero community in a future Worlds of DC movie.

Tula


Tula Aquaman

Tula, known as Aquagirl in New Earth, the dominant reality before DC’s 2011 reboot, is a fairly obscure character in the Aquaman comics. In New Earth, she was an honorary member of the Teen Titans and had many adventures with them. She also had a short-lived relationship with Tempest, but it didn’t last very long. Sadly, she was killed by Chemo during Crisis on Infinite Earths. However, in Prime Earth, the current continuity, Tula is alive and well and living in Atlantis and was the regent of Atlantis during Aquaman’s absence.

Tula would be a perfect candidate to appear in the upcoming film, as her Prime Earth version is more of a military and political figure than an adventurer. In the Worlds of DC, she could play a role similar to that of Okoye in this year’s Black Panther. Even if she doesn’t make a live-action appearance any time soon, she’d still make a great addition to an animated film due to her long and fun history in the comics.

Koryak


Koryak Aquaman

Koryak, Aquaman’s illegitimate son, is the result of a relationship between Aquaman and an Alaskan woman named Kako. Koryak didn’t meet his father until he was well into his teens, and the two got off to a rocky start. Eventually, their relationship improved, and Koryak took up residence in Poseidonis, Atlantis’ capital city.

Unfortunately, Koryak (and much of the rest of Atlantis) were killed during the Spectre’s rampage at the beginning of Infinite Crisis. It’s thought that he later came back from the dead as Narwhal, but this has yet to be confirmed. He and Deep Blue were also romantically involved, but, of course, this ended at his death. Either way though, it’d be great to see his complicated and somewhat scandalous past on the big screen. Plus, in the event that both Koryak and Deep Blue appear, we’re sure to see more romance in the Worlds of DC.

Lagoon Boy


Lagoon Boy Aquaman

Lagoon Boy — one of the many outsiders let into Atlantis shortly before Aquaman and Mera’s wedding — is a fairly unknown character. He has been a member of both Landlubbers/Landlovers and Titans East, but not much else is known about him. Sadly, toward the end of New Earth, Lagoon Boy was left in a coma after a mission with Titans East went wrong. Plus, he was just killed off in the first issue of Heroes in Crisis in Prime Earth without receiving much backstory.

Though the original comic iteration of Lagoon Boy hasn’t been expanded upon as much as his Young Justice version, it would still be great to see him on the big screen because of his interesting powers, including being able to blow up like a pufferfish and controlling water like Mera. But, if the upcoming season of YJ features Lagoon Boy prominently, we’re almost sure to see him in a movie, as he plays a sort of comedic relief in the comics, which is something that has been sorely lacking in previous Worlds of DC.

How to save time and avoid waiting in line for attractions

ADVERTISEMENT


There’s nothing worse than traveling somewhere to see an attraction that you waste half the day queueing for. Whether its a museum, gallery, or monument, if it’s popular, it’s going to have a seemingly endless queue. However, if you don’t fancy wasting three hours of your day queueing in the rain just for an elevator up the Eiffel Tower, then there are some tips and tricks to get you past the excessive lines.

Pick your time of day

Tourists usually want to visit attractions from around 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and so you’re left standing in an enormous queue. However, one of the best times of day to visit any spot – unless it has specific opening hours – is sunrise. There’s no need to wait for sunset to get artistic photos, when dawn is just as beautiful, with the added bonus of being pretty empty. The vast majority of travelers will not be up and out that early, so you’ll have the area practically to yourself. Equally, with some attractions that are open late at night, those times are also likely to be less crowded. So, in general, go super early or late, and you’ll avoid most of the crowds and waiting in line.

Get active

Believe it or not, one of the best ways to avoid queues is to take the stairs rather than escalators or elevators. In places where the view is the main attraction, elevators become overly busy, with people waiting in line for several hours to get in one, while the stairs remain empty enough for you to bypass everyone who is still waiting to be taken up the building without exerting any energy.

Book in advance

By booking a slot in advance, you can dramatically reduce your waiting times. If you arrive just before your slot, you should only be waiting a matter of minutes, rather than hours. The only problem is that you have to be organized and stick to your plan, but, if this doesn’t bother you, then a pre-booked entry time or tour can save you masses of time.

Don’t go for the popular day

If you want to see a famous attraction, avoid doing it when you know its likely to be busy. If you’re in another country, research their holidays, because you don’t want to visit an attraction, only to find out that the entire country has the day off and wants to see it, too. Another way to minimize waiting times is to pick a day which doesn’t appeal to other people. Choose an overcast or rainy day to view an outdoor attraction, and you’ll have the place almost to yourself. You might even witness some views which are uniquely beautiful, like fog hanging over the city.

Just because you want to visit a famous attraction, doesn’t mean you should settle for excessive queueing. You’ll waste your day and be bored by the time you get to the front. Make some plans in advance and look for the least popular times and you can wait in line for a significantly shorter amount of time.

Downton Abbey Is Returning—This Time to the Big Screen. Watch the Trailer

If you missed the Grantham, their servants and the grandeur of their English estate, you’ll be happy to know that the cast of Downton Abbey is returning in 2019. Only this time, it’s on the big screen.

The show’s Twitter account on Friday teased the trailer for the movie, which is simply named Downton Abbey.

The show, a PBS series available on Amazon Prime Video, won three Golden Globes and 15 Emmys during its six seasons, which began in 2010 and wrapped up in 2016.

Focus Features confirmed in July that the popular show was being made into a feature film, with the main cast, including Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville, and Michelle Dockery, returning for their roles, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The creator of Downton Abbey, Julian Fellowes, who following the show was busy with a book project for an unrelated story, wrote the screenplay for the movie, Entertainment Weekly reports. The series follows a family through the changes of the early 1900s, including with historical events such as the sinking of the Titanic, World War 1 and Adolf Hitler’s first attempt at seizing power in Germany.

The show garnered a high viewership for the public broadcaster, bringing in 9.9 million viewers for its final season premiere. Merchandise associated with the show has brought in about $ 24 million in 2013, Forbes reports.

The storyline of the movie hasn’t yet been revealed, but it is set to be released in theaters on September 20, 2019, CNN reports.

“It’s a return to these really beloved characters and seeing them in new sets of circumstances and how they will deal with those, and hopefully, a good mix of the drama, comedy, and romance that had been the mainstays of it all,” Executive producer Gareth Neame told Entertainment Weekly.

She Says Michelle Obama’s Right, ‘Lean In’ Doesn’t Work All The Time, Especially For Black Women

Recently, Michelle Obama criticized Sheryl Sandberg’s “lean in” approach for women to advance in the workplace, saying “that s–t doesn’t work all the time.” But the former first lady isn’t the only one who has challenged Sandberg’s commonly referenced business motto, which puts the responsibility solely on women to take ownership of their career without mentioning the systemic barriers for women of color in the workplace.

Earlier this year, during an interview with Fast Company, Minda Harts, the founder of The Memo, dismantled a few career strategies from Sandberg’s New York Times best-seller.

“Lean In was well-intentioned and opened up the conversation, but, you cannot effectively talk about leaning in for black or brown women without discussing the role that race plays and the barriers to even enter the room for a seat at the table,” said Harts. “Lean In didn’t talk about race and it was written from a white-privileged women’s perspective for predominately other white women. One size doesn’t fit all.”

Black and Brown Women Still Vie for Equal Footing 

For over three years, Harts has lead the charge to help women of color secure the seat while challenging companies to acknowledge their systemic racism and how that plays into career advancement opportunities. “Many black and brown women are still trying to earn equal pay, access to good education and healthcare,” she said. “There are so many barriers in place. Lean In once again affirms that it’s up to us to change societal norms. Black and brown women have always been leaning in, so, what do you do when you lean into a system that doesn’t recognize you? That is where we are now. For women of color to get ahead, it will require intentional solutions from our employers.”

Lean in

Minda Harts, Founder of The Memo

Beyond highlighting problems, Harts is a solutions-driven career revolutionary who is using every possible platform to help women prepare for their seat at the table. Earlier this year, she endowed a scholarship at her undergraduate institution for first-generation women of color students and put it in her mother’s name to honor her. Along with her co-founder Lauren Broussard, she created The Memo, a career development platform that provides access to career boot camps, resources, and real-world career advice. She also hosts a weekly podcast called Secure “The Seat.”

To help drive real change within companies and organizations that want to invest in women of color, Harts recently created The Women of Color Equity Initiative. “I am tired of us consistently falling below 10% in most of those workplace statistics,” says Hart. “Hundreds of women of color want access to leadership opportunities and they’ve added their name to the WOC equity career-sourcing database. I’m also partnering with companies and organizations who want to intentionally hire women of color to fill open leadership roles.”

“Part of The WOC Equity Initiative is making sure a cultural shift takes place from the top down. This will require real systems change,” she continues. “This isn’t a ‘binder full of women,’ this is a partnership to create equity once they are hired and a roadmap to the C-suite. I don’t want a woman to get hired and she’s miserable because she’s the only one or dealing with microaggressions. We are too educated and experienced to let our expertise go dormant. I don’t want my sisters to lean out because companies won’t lean into them. We have worked too hard to lean out now.”
