Organ wait list shortcut: Patients accepting kidneys, hearts infected with hepatitis C

It seems like an implausible solution: Accepting a transplant of an organ that is infected with hepatitis C. But, some patients faced with a last resort are doing just that — accepting infected organs and then starting a course of antiviral drugs to eliminate traces of the virus, USA Today reports.

Karlie Kloss and Joshua Kushner are officially engaged, and wait until you see her ring

We’ve watched romance blossom between supermodel Karlie Kloss and her boyfriend, Joshua Kushner, for the past six years, and now congratulations are in order: Kloss and Kushner are officially engaged. Kloss shared the news in an Instagram post today, July 24th (she later gave us a peek at her ring in her Instagram story). The 25-year-old model first posted a selfie of her kissing Kushner on the cheek with a sweet caption.

“I love you more than I have words to express. Josh, you’re my best friend and my soulmate,” Kloss wrote on the post. “I can’t wait for forever together. Yes a million times over.”

And behold, the ring (shared via a fan account after being posted to Karlie’s Instagram Stories):

That ring though 😍😍😍

A post shared by Samantha (@karlieklossified) on

An anonymous source told People.com that Kushner popped the question while the two were on a weekend trip in upstate New York a few weeks ago. Kloss and Kushner met back in 2012, and the model slash coding queen has often been candid about her feelings for her beau on social media. In a June Instagram post for Kushner’s birthday, she referred to him as “my love + my best friend in the universe,” making us swoon over their adorable connection.

Kushner, 33, is a businessman and the brother of Jared Kushner, senior adviser to President Donald Trump and husband to first daughter Ivanka Trump. But despite his brother’s ties to the Trump administration, Kushner is an outspoken liberal. In March, he and Kloss even made an appearance at the March For Our Lives protest in Washington, D.C.

We’re wishing Kloss and Kushner so much happiness as they prepare for marriage. Congratulations, guys!

The Black Films and TV Shows We Can’t Wait To See This Summer

A number of black-oriented movies and television shows debuted at the American Black Film Festival earlier this month, celebrating the brilliance and creativity of black art. But don’t fret if you missed the festival; there are a lot of black films and TV shows to look forward to this summer. Here’s a list of seven must-see productions showcasing the talent of black casts, producers, directors, and writers.

Insecure (Season 3)



On Monday, HBO released the first trailer for the highly anticipated third season of Insecure, revealing that Issa, played by lead actress and show creator Issa Rae, may finally be over her ex Lawrence (Jay Ellis). In the clip, she is seen enjoying single life with her best friend Molly (Yvonne Orji), Tiffany (Amanda Seales), and Kelli (Natasha Rothwell). However, she may rekindle her fling with Daniel (Y’lan Noel), who also makes an appearance in the promo.

Official synopsis: Modern-day black women might be described as strong and confident; in other words, just the opposite of Issa and Molly. As the best friends deal with their own real-life flaws, their insecurities come to the fore as together they cope with an endless series of uncomfortable everyday experiences. Created by co-star Issa Rae and writer/comic Larry Wilmore (The Daily Show With Jon Stewart), the comedy series looks at the friendship of two black women in a unique, authentic way. It features the music of both indie and established artists of color, and touches on a variety of social and racial issues that relate to the contemporary black experience.

Network: HBO

Release date: August 12


Superfly



Superfly puts a modern-day spin on the 1972 blaxploitation classic, starring Trevor Jackson as the snazzy antihero. Set in Atlanta, the movie is filled with fancy cars, hip-hop, and strip clubs. The Sony and Silver Pictures’ reboot debuted on June 13 earning an estimated $ 1.2 million.

Official synopsis: Cocaine kingpin Youngblood Priest realizes that it’s time to get out of the game after surviving a violent attack from a crazed rival. Hoping for one last score, Priest and his partner travel to Mexico to arrange a deal. The career criminal now finds himself trying to outmaneuver the cartel, two corrupt police officers and all the double-crossers that threaten his path to freedom.

Release date: June 13


Luke Cage (Season 2)



Cheo Hodari Coker’s adaption of Marvel’s Luke Cage has been a fan favorite since the streeaming series first premiered in 2016. The gritty superhero series features an all-star cast of actors of color, including Mike Colter, Simone Missick, Alfre Woodard, Mustafa Shakir, Gabrielle Dennis, and Rosario Dawson.

Official synopsis: After clearing his name, Luke Cage (played by actor Mike Colter) has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem, with a reputation as bulletproof as his skin. But being so visible has only increased his need to protect the community and find the limits of who he can and can’t save. With the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain.

Network: Netflix

Premiere date: June 22


Love Is __



Love Is_ is a new romantic series that promises to bring all the delicious feels of ‘90s nostalgia. The show is based on the real-life romance of award-winning producer Mara Brock Akil—the mastermind behind GirlfriendsThe Game, and Being Mary Jane— and her husband Salim Akil. Set in 1990s L.A., actors Michele Weaver and William Catlett play Mara and Salim when they first started dating back in 1997.

Official synopsis: Michele Weaver and Will Catlett star in OWN’s new romantic drama Love Is___, from award-winning producers Mara Brock Akil (Girlfriends, Being Mary Jane, The Game) and Salim Akil (Black Lightning). Set primarily in 1990s Los Angeles against the backdrop of Black Hollywood, Love Is___ follows Nuri (Michele Weaver) and Yasir (Will Catlett), a couple from seemingly opposite worlds, as they chase their dreams and learn to follow their hearts. Told from the perspective of the couple’s present-day selves, the romantic drama also revisits the social issues and vibrant black culture of that time reflecting on how it all aligned to shape the couple they have become nearly 20 years later—a power couple navigating a complex set of social codes while also balancing successful careers and a beautiful family. Drawing inspiration from creators Mara Brock Akil and Salim Akil’s own relationship journey, the series explores the highs, the lows, and the magic of falling (and staying) in love.

Network: OWN

Premiere date: June 19


Sorry To Bother You



Sorry To Bother You is a surreal Afro-futuristic comedy that pushes an anti-capitalist message. Mic describes Sorry to Bother You as a likely “cultural sensation” that “deftly captures the folly of these times.”

Official synopsis: Sorry To Bother You is an alternate present-day version of Oakland. Telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) discovers a magical key to professional success, propelling him into a macabre universe. The ensemble cast consists of Lakeith Stanfield, Tessa Thompson, Armie Hammer, Terry Crews, Steven Yeun, Omari Hardwick, Jermaine Fowler, and Danny Glover. The film is written and directed by Boots Riley and produced by Nina Yang Bongiovi, Forest Whitaker, Charles D. King and George Rush with distribution by Annapurna Pictures.

Release date: July 6


The First Purge



The First Purge is based on a social experiment that lifts all laws in America for 12 hours on Independence Day. The cast includes several actors of color like Y’lan Noel, Lex Scott Davis, and Joivan Wade.

Official synopsis: Behind every tradition lies a revolution. Next Independence Day, witness the rise of our country’s 12 hours of annual lawlessness. Welcome to the movement that began as a simple experiment: The First Purge.

To push the crime rate below one percent for the rest of the year, the New Founding Fathers of America (NFFA) test a sociological theory that vents aggression for one night in one isolated community.  But when the violence of oppressors meets the rage of the marginalized, the contagion will explode from the trial-city borders and spread across the nation.

Release date: July 4


BlacKkKlansman



Extraordinary filmmakers Spike Lee and Jordan Peele teamed up to produce one of the most highly anticipated movies of the summer, BlacKkKlansman.

Official synopsis: From visionary filmmaker Spike Lee comes the incredible true story of an American hero. It’s the early 1970s, and Ron Stallworth (John David Washington) is the first African-American detective to serve in the Colorado Springs Police Department. Determined to make a name for himself, Stallworth bravely sets out on a dangerous mission: infiltrate and expose the Ku Klux Klan. The young detective soon recruits a more seasoned colleague, Flip Zimmerman (Adam Driver), into the undercover investigation of a lifetime. Together, they team up to take down the extremist hate group as the organization aims to sanitize its violent rhetoric to appeal to the mainstream. Produced by the team behind the Academy-Award® winning film Get Out.

Release date: August 10


Queen Sugar (Season 3)



Season 3 of Queen Sugar debuted with a two-part premiere on May 29 and 30, picking up exactly where season 2 left off. The premiere addressed both the prospective sale of the mill and the resolution of Ralph Angel and Darla’s relationship.

Official SynopsisQueen Sugar tells the story of the estranged Bordelon siblings in Louisiana. At the center of the family are Nova, a journalist and activist; Charley, the wife and manager of an NBA player; and formerly incarcerated father Ralph Angel, who is searching for redemption. Following a tragedy in the family, the siblings must put their complicated lives aside so that they can come together to run the clan’s struggling sugar cane farm. Also involved in the farm are Aunt Violet and family friend Remy Newell.

Premiere date: May 29 and 30

Baseball Player Shaves Mustache Off During the Game Because Grooming Decisions Wait For No One

Houston Astros baseball player Alex Bregman showed off his excellent multitasking skills on Sunday night when he made a game time decision to shave his mustache during a game against the Kansas City Royals.

During the game, it appeared that the third baseman decided to make a major grooming change between the 2nd inning, where he appeared with a mustache and the 4th inning, where he was clean-shaven.

In an interview with the Houston Chronicle, Bregman was fairly laconic when it came to talking about his surprise facial hair switch-up during the game, merely stating that “I just shaved it.”

New iPhone X Plus schematic suggests we’ll have to wait for the triple-cam iPhone

iPhone X Plus Specs

Apple will reportedly launch three new iPhone X models this year, including an affordable 6.1-inch LCD model and two iPhone X successors with OLED screens measuring 5.8 inches and 6.5 inches — the latter of which is currently being referred to as the iPhone X Plus (though we don’t know the real name).

Now, a brand new leak appears to show us schematics for the 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch iPhones, complete with design details and sizes. But no matter what you hear today, the iPhone X Plus schematic doesn’t suggest that the bigger model will have a triple-lens camera on the back like the Huawei P20 Pro.

The Weekend Reset: Bad news for Bonobos, good news for your taste buds and new music that is worth the wait.

It’s Friday. Looking for something to switch up your weekend, or to give you an excuse to relax a little? That’s what the Weekend Reset is for. Each week contributor Tim Johnstone pulls together five things to get your weekend started. Could be something to read or watch, something to eat or listen to, or even something to do. Enjoy the weekend fellas.

 

READ: Is Bonobos now damaged goods?

If Wal-Mart believed snatching up one of the most beloved men’s fashion brands would be a good thing for both concerns, they were wrong. In fact, it would seem a couple of recent purchases have not played out well for all involved. Thanks to Dappered reader Bill N. for posting this in the threads. You know about threads, right?

 

STREAM: The beautiful game is not just a FIFA thing.

While most soccer fans are gearing up for the World Cup later this year, a different gathering of teams from around the word are gathering right now in London for CONIFA World Football Cup 2018. Conifa stands for The Confederation of Independent Football Associations. Or, basically, regions of the world and nations that don’t fit into FIFA’s framework. Places like: Tibet, Cascadia, Barawa and Cyprus. Soccer truly is a sport played around the world and it is always interesting learning about the different cultures that share a love for the game. The tournament kicks off this weekend in London and you can should be able to stream it here (not sure about US rights though?) and learn more here. Thanks to Joe for passing this my way.

 

EAT: Summer’s secret culinary weapon? It’s a condiment.

I just got back from a memorial Day Weekend excursion to my favorite mountain retreat. While we are off the grid, we always eat well. My host is a fantastic cook and I’m still thinking about the salads and grilled proteins we enjoyed. The common denominator in these dishes was a balsamic glaze that elevated everything it dressed. It makes a big impact on everyday dishes and while you can easily make it yourself, it’s readily available at most good grocery stores. This is a good place to start if you’re looking for a way to use it and make it for yourself.

 

LISTEN: Snow Patrol made us wait 7 years for this. It was worth it.

Gary Lightbody is Snow Patrol’s de facto front man. And he had a very bad stretch of years since the band released 2011’s Fallen Empires. He has been open with his struggles with alcohol and depression and it played no small role in the making of this album. Which, by the way, is nowhere near depressing. It is, however, grand in places, lighthearted in others, and absolutely stuffed with the elements which has brought the band so many fans.

 

WATCH: You should probably be afraid of the dark.

To this day Near Dark remains one of my favorite genre movies. Kathryn Bigelow would go on to directs movies like Point Break, The Hurt Locker, Zero Dark Thirty and her most recent, Detroit, but Near Dark was only her 2nd film. And it got noticed. The cast makes the movie, with attention stealing performances from Bill Paxton and Lance Henricksen, perfect 80’s period piece soundtrack from Tangerine Dream and a bona-fide love story to boot. Did I mention it’s one of my favorite vampire flicks? No? It is.

Tim Johnstone is Dappered’s music correspondent as well as our resident gatherer of all things interwebs related. He’s pretty sure he should lay off the horror movies but he’s afraid to.

My life is ticking away while I wait for my kid to poop

by

Becky Vieira

posted in Parenting

If my son doesn’t poop he can’t sleep. And if he doesn’t seep our entire house is thrown into disarray. I hate chaos, so we generally end up waiting for him.

To poop, that is. We wait for him to poop — if that wasn’t clear.

It’s not that he has to poop that’s a problem. It’s when. Twice a day, right before he naps and goes to bed. And if we don’t wait for the poop before we put him down, he won’t sleep.

He will talk, fuss, even scream. Essentially he’ll do anything except sleep. As soon as we take him from his crib he finds a quiet corner and does his business. We learned this the hard way, after many missed naps. And a few nights when we had to perform the entire nighttime routine twice.

Finally we came to accept that we need to wait out the “event.” As soon as it happens we can usher him in for his nap or to bed. It makes sense. No one can relax, or sleep, when they are on the precipice of bathroom visit. Or in their diapers, as is his case.

Toddler boy sits with mom before he goes to sleep

So we sit. And time passes. Until he finally he stops what he’s doing. Stands perfectly still as his tiny faces turns a dark shade of pink. And I can finally relax, because I know what’s next. He poops. Next, he can can sleep. And I can finally stop waiting.

It’s bizarre. Funny. And now just an unspoken part of our daily routine that I don’t think much about anymore. He has lunch or dinner. Plays a bit while we wait. He goes to the bathroom. Then we can begin our sleep routine.

Though it does feel like he’s holding us hostage at times. I’ll never get back the hours I’ve lost waiting for my son to poop.

I’ll admit it, there are plenty of days when I count down the minutes until he goes to sleep. Teething, tantrums or just exhaustion can make for a rough day. As the clock ticks closer to nap or bedtime I start to feel as rush of energy because I know I’m about to get a break.

It’s usually followed by a twinge of sadness, knowing I’ll miss my son during the time he’s asleep. Topped off by a rush of guilt over the fact that I was looking forward to it. All of this quickly become a moot point as it’s no longer about when he’ll sleep. It’s about when he’ll poop.

The two are inexplicably linked.

Toddler boy sits and plays with toys

In the 18 months since his birth my son has stolen many things. He stole my heart — it’s cliche, but true. A lot of my sleep. And many, many hours have been stolen as I wait for him to finish a meal, (attempt to) put his shoes on, or walk down the street and stop to look at every line in the sidewalk.

He’s also stolen plenty of time spent waiting for that aforementioned diaper incident.

I’ve come to accept it. He’s on a regimented bathroom schedule. The kid is regular, what can I say. People spend years trying to reach this type of bowel movement nirvana that he’s achieved at only 18 months-old.

After all, he’s just a toddler. Barely beyond the baby stage. It’s his world, we just live in it.

At least while we wait for him to poop.

For more mom moments, follow me on Instagram at Witty Otter.

Does your child have anything they must do before they can sleep? And do they poop at a sat time each day?

Wait, Is Kim Kardashian West Making Thong Heels Happen?

If you’re following the current fashion revival train, you’ll be well aware of the fact that ’90s trends are still reigning supreme in the celebrity street style game. The latest piece to make a comeback from the aforementioned decade? Thong heels—allow us to explain.

Recently spotted on Kim Kardashian West, thong heels are, as Vogue puts it best, quite possibly the “world’s sexiest sandals,” especially when you consider current footwear trends—e.g., Birkenstocks, dad sneakers, and Crocs. And as the name suggests, the sandals are part flip-flop, part heel, offering up (quite literally) a more elevated take on the classic, often-polarizing, beach shoes.

Not sure how to wear the unique sandals? Style them à la Kardashian West with cool, sporty pieces—bike shorts, sports bra, and an oversize sweatshirt. But to be honest, thong heels lend themselves well to any outfit. So whether you’re feeling a pair of jeans or a springtime dress, slip into throwback sandal with confidence (and freshly painted toes) for a statement-making look. Read on to see Kardashian West wearing the ’90s sandals, and then shop a few styles currently available.

John Stamos “can’t wait” to become a father as he shared a funny Instagram photo of himself wearing a fake baby bump.

The Fuller House actor couldn’t help but crack a joke with an old photo of himself on the set of Full House wearing a white T-shirt with the words “Bun in the Oven” written across it.

Stamos, 54, who is expecting his first child with wife Caitlin McHugh, expressed his humor and excitement at his impending fatherhood in a sweet caption, writing, “This is the longest 9 months of my life! #cantwait 4 #fatherhood.”

The couple tied the knot on Feb. 3 in Studio City, California, a source told PEOPLE. The reception was held at Stamos’ home in Beverly Hills.

“They exchanged vows in front of family and close friends. It was a very touching ceremony. There were tears but mostly smiles. John and Caitlyn looked very happy.”

RELATED VIDEO: John Stamos on Why He’s Finally Ready to Be a Dad at 54

Stamos proposed to McHugh after almost two years of dating in October 2017 at Disneyland — one of McHugh’s favorite places. She is an active Disneybounder, a superfan who dresses up in character at the amusement park.

“The happened. Then I said, I better have a ring on her finger because it’s the right thing to do, and I wanted to marry her anyway,” Stamos told PEOPLE exclusively in December. “So I called her parents to ask, and it was like, ‘You better!’”

“She loves Disneyland and , I got on my knee and asked her,” Stamos said. “I pulled the ring out. I don’t know how she did it, but she went to hug me and slipped her finger right in it. When the park closed, we ran around the park in our Disney onesies.”

Think your 3rd grader needs a smartphone? These parents hope you’ll wait

by

Michelle Stein

posted in Parenting

My 6-year-old son is fascinated with technology. That little bugger is always snatching my phone to watch music videos on YouTube, look at my photos, catch Pokémon, send dozens of poop emojis to everyone on my contact list, etc. And he wants nothing more than a smartphone of his very own.

Well, sorry to break it to you, kid. That’s not happening anytime soon. Not until high school.

Thankfully, I’m not the only mean mom. A group of fed-up moms has banded together to create the “Wait Until 8th” pledge, which urges parents to delay giving children smartphones until at least eighth grade. More than 1,300 families from 42 states and over 400 schools have signed the pledge already, in just the first few months.

“Several months ago a group of parents from my daughter’s elementary school in Austin started to discuss the mounting pressure in our community to give children their own smartphones at an early age,” Brooke Shannon, Wait Until 8th founder, told BabyCenter.

“We started seeing children as young as first and second grade coming to school, play dates, and birthday parties with the latest iPhone. We questioned why young children needed this technology. As we started to ask around, many parents said they eventually caved on the smartphone because ‘everyone had them’ and they did not want their child to feel left out.”

child with smartphone

The pledge’s website offers a number of convincing reasons parents should get on board. For starters, smartphones are addictive and an academic distraction. Plus they impair sleep, increase the risk of depression, anxiety, and cyber-bullying and they interfere with relationships.

I’m 100-percent behind delaying smartphones until at least eighth grade. Although, as the pledge suggests, I would consider letting my kids have basic phones before then — especially if they are in a bunch of extracurricular activities. Or maybe one of those cool watches that can only text/call pre-selected numbers. My kids get plenty of screen time as it is, thanks to tablets and TV; they don’t need to be connected 24/7 as middle schoolers. (I have a difficult enough time unplugging as an adult!) As Wait Until Eighth points out, “childhood is too short to waste on a smartphone.”

Wait, Rob Lowe Is The New KFC Colonel?

Hold up. Wait, what? Rob Lowe is the new KFC colonel?

Guess so. The fast food company announced Friday that it has selected the actor to become the latest in a long list of colonels ― a group that has included comedians like Darrell Hammond and Norm Macdonald in the past.

In his first commercial for the company, Lowe dons an astronaut suit and proclaims his intent to blast a new chicken filet sandwich called the Zinger into space for some reason. 

“The time has come to explore beyond our known horizons to push KFC’s spicy, crispy chicken sandwich to new heights,” he says.

“Sure, there’ll be questions,” he continues. “Like why.”

We don’t really have many questions, but Lowe did put out a statement on Friday that was rather serious considering the circumstances.  

“My grandfather was the head of the Ohio chapter of the National Restaurant Association in the 1960s and took me to meet Colonel Harland Sanders when I was a kid,” Lowe said. “It was a big deal.”

He added, “I thought this would be a nice homage to both Colonel Sanders and to my grandfather.”

Anyway, it’s a commercial for a chicken sandwich featuring a celebrity. You get it.

Can’t Wait to Get Your Hands on the Louis Vuitton x Supreme Collaboration? Try This Under-$100 Outfit in the Meantime

If you haven’t been able to focus on anything since you saw the Louis Vuitton x Supreme collaboration hit the runway earlier today, we can imagine you’re very anxious to get your hands on a piece (or 10!) and we’re here to help.

The storied Parisian fashion house teamed up with the legendary N.Y.C. skateboarding brand for its fall 2017 menswear collection of pieces all donning the “LV x Supreme mashup” monogram pattern. And what you saw on the runway isn’t even everything in the collection. There are full outfits (pants, shirts, jackets), staple accessories (sneakers, wallets) plus some very specific finds (fanny packs, cardholders).

Louis Vuitton’s menswear artistic director Kim Jones, told Vogue the plan is to “drop the bags in different colors in different places at different times.” While it’s not clear when pieces will become available, what we do know is that you can start evoking the style of the collab right now, with these very inexpensive buys. (Hey, you’ll want to save up all the money you can for the second it hits stores!)

First, start sporting jean jackets with a faded light blue two-tone effect until you can snag one with the coveted light blue “LV x Supreme” logo pattern.

Buy It! Forever 21 bleach dye denim jacket, $ 34.90; forever21.com

Next, embrace the handy accessory of the ’90s because the fanny pack is back! But instead of wearing it on your waist, it’s meant to be worn as an ultra-mini crossbody these days.

Buy It! Thaoya multifunction outdoor travel sports waist pack, $ 10.90; amazon.com

Getting a chunky knit sweater that matches the vibe of the ribbed sweaters Louis Vuitton included in the collection will be a good stand-in until the monogram version hits stores.

Buy It! Asos selected homme knit scarf, $ 46; asos.com

Dancing Pumpkin Man Prank… Wait For It

On Halloween, we could all do with at least one dancing pumpkin man jumping out of a pile of leaves to scare us, then make us laugh.

You really should watch this whole video, but if you don’t make it to 1:55 you are doing yourself a serious disservice. Seriously though.

Thank you SA Wardęga for making our Halloween infinitely better.
