Spike Lee on What’s Different About These Protests

NEW YORK (AP) — It’s not the first time that Spike Lee‘s “Do the Right Thing” has been freshly urgent, but Lee’s 1989 film has again found blistering relevance in the wake of George Floyd‘s death.

On Monday, Lee released a short film titled “3 Brothers” connecting the death of Radio Raheem (played by Bill Nunn) in “Do the Right Thing” to the deaths of Floyd and Eric Garner. Floyd died last week after a white Minneapolis police officer pressed his knee against his neck as he begged for air. Garner’s dying plea of “I can’t breathe” became a rallying cry against police brutality in 2014.

Blazed across the screen is the question: “Will history stop repeating itself?”

“I’ve seen this before. This is not new,” Lee said in an interview with The Associated Press on Monday. “I was born in ’57 so I was 11 years old when I saw the riots with Dr. King’s assassination, later on with Rodney King and the Simi Valley verdict, Trayvon Martin and Ferguson.”

“People are tired and they take to the streets,” said Lee.

“Do the Right Thing,” about rising racial tensions on a hot summer day in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood, took direct inspiration from reality. In the film, Raheem is choked to death by a police officer, sparking a riot.

Lee modeled the choke hold that kills Raheem on the murder of Michael Stewart, a graffiti artist who was killed by New York City police officers in 1983. Lee dedicated the film to Stewart’s family, as well as those of several other black people killed by police officers.

“His death is not just made up. Many years later, Eric Garner, automatically I thought of Ray Raheem,” said Lee. “Then to see my brother George Floyd. I mean, he was quoting the words of Eric Garner: ‘I can’t breathe.’ He was channeling Eric Garner. I’m sure of it.”

As much as Lee sees history repeating itself, there’s one element of the current unrest that strikes the filmmaker as new.

“I’ve been very encouraged by the diversity of the protesters. I haven’t seen this diverse protests since when I was a kid,” Lee said, citing the movements of the ’60s. “I’m encouraged that my wife’s sisters and brothers are out there.

“That is the hope of this country, this diverse, younger generation of Americans who don’t want to perpetuate the same (expletive) that their parents and grandparents and great-grandparents got caught up in. That’s my hope.”

To illustrate the point, Lee cited cities with smaller black populations, like Des Moines, Iowa, where protests and riots have occurred.

“My young white sisters and brothers are out there in the streets. How many black folks are in Salt Lake City, Utah? And let’s take into account that the NBA is not playing,” said Lee, letting out an enormous cackle. “The Utah Jazz are not playing!”

“3 Brothers” is the second short Lee has released during the pandemic. While Lee has kept to his Upper East Side apartment with his family, he has also biked around the city to shoot. Lee’s “New York, New York,” set to Frank Sinatra, was released in early May as an ode to his outbreak-stricken city. Next week, he’ll release on Netflix “Da Five Bloods,” a Vietnam War drama about four black veterans who return to Vietnam to find the remains of their fallen squad leader (Chadwick Boseman).

Lee has only modest hopes for justice in the aftermath of Floyd’s death. Attorney General William Barr he calls “not a friend to justice.” “He’s going to do what Agent Orange tell him to do,” said Lee, using his favored nickname for President Donald Trump.

But Lee has been buoyed by a photo of New York police officers kneeling with protesters, an image he likened to Colin Kaepernick’s NFL protests.

“They need to show the image more,” said Lee. “Colin Kaepernick is a patriot.”

Coronavirus Update: Some Churches Experience Very Different Easter Services During Pandemic

The Centers For Disease Control has released new information in relation to social distancing to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. In a recent study, the CDC found that virus droplets can travel as far as thirteen feet, more than twice the six feet distance in the current social distancing requirement. In addition, a study in a Wuhan hospital found that the virus was most heavily concentrated on the floors of the wards, possibly caused by gravity. This sheds new light on reports that the virus can travel on shoes.

The U.S. has hit a new milestone in the coronavirus pandemic. There are now more than 1/2 million confirmed coronavirus cases in this country. The United States has passed Italy to become the country with the most coronavirus deaths, surpassing 21,000. Over 110,000 people have died from the pandemic worldwide.

Singer and producer Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds announced on Twitter that he and his family are recovering from coronavirus. “I feel so blessed to be able to celebrate another birthday. I tested positive for Covid19, as did my family. It’s an incredibly scary thing to go through my friends. I’m happy to report we have now tested negative and are on our way back to full health,” Edmonds tweeted.
Sandy Brown of Michigan lost her husband and only son to coronavirus within days of each other. Her 59-year-old husband, Freddie Lee Brown III, had a kidney transplant. Her son, Freddie Lee Brown Jr., suffered from asthma.
Rihanna has teamed up with Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to combat domestic abuse in the age of coronavirus. A $ 4.2 million grant will go to the Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles to help victims of domestic abuse in the city. Domestic abuse has risen worldwide since shelter-in-place orders have forced people to remain in close contact with their abusers.
Business & Politics
To redirect his campaign message to address the pandemic, presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden unveiled his plan to “safely reopen” the U.S. His plan includes making testing more widely available and waiting until the number of confirmed coronavirus cases is low to ease restrictions.
In a New York Times op-ed, Biden wrote, “As we prepare to reopen America, we have to remember what this crisis has taught us: The administration’s failure to plan, to prepare, to honestly assess and communicate the threat to the nation led to catastrophic results.”

African American Ohio State Rep. Tavia Galonski announced her plan to prosecute Trump for crimes against humanity for his encouragement of the use of the drug, hydroxychoroquine. The drug has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration to treat COVID-19. Galonski said she intends to report the president to the Hague, the city in the Netherlands where the International Criminal Court is located.

The United States Postal Service is asking Congress for funds to stay afloat during the pandemic and says it will run out of money by the end of September if nothing is done. Trump, who says the agency needs to increase its prices and hopes to privatize the service, is less than eager to help. The postal service is one of the country’s biggest employers. As of 2018, according to Data USA, the Postal Service employs over 330,000 employees. While 67% of its employees are white, 21% of the agency’s employees are Black.

Six people were shot at a Bakersfield, California party that was held despite a statewide stay-at-home order issued to stop the spread of coronavirus. All the victims were taken to a local hospital and treated for injuries that were not life-threatening. No arrests have been made.
A three-judge panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld enforcement of an executive order by Texas Governor Greg Abbott that includes abortion among non-essential medical procedures banned during the state of emergency. However, the appeals court allowed the procedure to go ahead if delays would place the pregnancy beyond the 22-week state cutoff for abortions. Similar legal fights are being waged in Alabama, Ohio, Oklahoma and Iowa.
Washington, DC, Mayor Muriel Bowser on Sunday said that there should be a national focus to collect data on coronavirus deaths in communities of color. She stressed her city’s need for testing resources and said a surge in the District will happen well beyond May 1, the date proposed by the Trump administration to reopen the country.
Latest Numbers
According to data from a Johns Hopkins University tally, almost 20,000 people have died from coronavirus complications.  The United States has passed Italy to become the country with the most coronavirus deaths. On Friday, the U.S. saw its highest daily death count yet, at 2,108.

CNN’s Jim Acosta: ‘This Was a Different Trump’ at Coronavirus Briefing

CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta, known for his rough-and-tumble verbal battles with President Donald Trump, likely raised eyebrows among CNN viewers on Tuesday night when he praised the president’s new tone at the latest White House press briefing, claiming “this was a different Trump.” 

Just days after pushing for coronavirus restrictions to be loosened by Easter so as to reopen the economy, the president admitted on Tuesday that at least 100,000 Americans would likely die from COVID-19 and Americans had a “very tough two weeks” ahead of them.

During the briefing, Acosta asked whether projections of up to 200,000 deaths would be lower if Trump had acted sooner, prompting the president to insist that he did act early. Though Acosta would continue to press him on whether he waited too long to take the pandemic seriously, Trump did not spar with his longtime nemesis, even noting at one point that Acosta’s question was “fair.”

What You Need to Know About Different Types of Window Glass

Is it time to replace the window glass in your home? You have a lot of choices when it comes to window glass replacement, more than you might have bargained for. This can be great but could also make the decision overwhelming. Saving money when replacing window glass means you’ll need to weigh the benefits of different glass types versus the cost of materials and installation. You should also consider window rebates you might be eligible to help you save money. Comparing the practical and aesthetic benefits of different window glass will help you narrow down your options. 

Let’s take a look at the different types of window glass to give you a clear view of the best option for your home. Then, compare window types online before deciding on the right windows for your budget.

Insulated Glass

Insulating glass offers the benefits of controlling heat transfers through windows. The multiple layers of glass and other materials are designed to keep heat in during cold winter months and keep heat out in the summer. Gas is sometimes added between the layers of glass to aid in the process of insulating your window effectively. You can save money by opting for glass that is less insulated, but what you save in materials you’ll likely end up paying in energy costs.

Approximate cost: $ 100 to $ 400 depending on the required size and model. 

Best for: Insulated glass windows are appealing to those seeking temperature control in their homes. The benefits of insulated glass windows include reduced energy bills, as you won’t have as much air leaking in and out of your home. 

Pay attention to: Insulated glass comes in a variety of layers — the more layers the heavier the insulation. Consider how much heat and cooling control you’re looking for in your home to decide on the best model.

Gas-filled Glass

Similar to some types of insulated windows, gas-filled glass uses argon or krypton between double or triple-paned glass to control heat dispersion. Since the gases used are denser than the surrounding atmosphere, the gas contributes to blocking and maintaining interior temperatures. Since the gases used are naturally occurring, they won’t be harmful if a leak does occur—though reputable manufacturers guarantee against gas leaks. 

Approximate cost: $ 100 to $ 700 depending on the required size and model. 

Best for: Gas-filled windows are appealing to those seeking heavy temperature control and reduced energy bills. Many gas-filled windows are specifically designed for bathrooms. 

Pay attention to: It might be helpful to know what kind of gas is used in your gas-filled glass windows. Additionally, consider finding a manufacturer that offers an anti-gas leak guarantee to ensure an effective and long-lasting product. 

Tinted and Coated Glass

Tinted and coated glass is made by adding metal oxides to rolled glass in order to shade the coloring. While tinted or coated glass can be aesthetically pleasing by adding tints of bronze, green, blue or gray, the tint doesn’t usually impact the functionality of the window. 

Approximate cost: The way in which you tint your windows determines the cost. A cheap alternative to buying windows which are made tinted is to add a film to the windows retroactively. You can purchase window tinting supplies for your home starting from $ 20 to $ 300. 

Best for: Tinted and coated glass is appealing to those looking to gain privacy or add to the appearance of their home. 

Pay attention to: Some window tints and coats are more environmentally friendly than others by offering increased heat resistance and lower transfer rates. This could decrease your energy bill if you plan to tint a large window in your home. 

Low-E Glass

Low-E glass is energy efficient glass with a focus on reducing energy loss through the glass in your home. With a coating even thinner than human hair, Low-E glass is meant to keep interior temperatures constant by subtly reflecting the heat of a room back to its center rather than outdoors. It can reduce a home’s heating and cooling costs by 10 to 35 percent. Low-E glass comes in a hard or soft coat, which offers different levels of emissivity.

Approximate cost: Low-E glass windows can fall anywhere between $ 200 and $ 500. 

Best for: Low-E glass is best for those looking to improve the energy efficiency of a given home, and who aren’t as concerned with improving curb appeal as the practicality of their windows. 

Pay attention to: Be sure to know your options when it comes to Low-E glass, as you’ll need to decide between a hard and soft coating. 

Laminated Glass

If you’re looking for durable windows with low levels of noise transfers, laminated glass is a great option for your home. Laminated glass also offers the benefit of durability, which makes broken windows less of a concern than many traditional types of window glass. Not to mention, laminated glass can protect against light-induced fading of interior furniture. 

Approximate cost: Laminated glass is on the higher end of glass cost for windows and in certain cases can exceed $ 1,000. 

Best for: Laminated glass is one of the best windows for sound reduction. It is appealing to homeowners with kids, as well as for homes in noisy areas. Did you just move into a house by a train station or airport? Laminated glass could help you get the rest and relaxation you need away from noise pollution. 

Pay attention to: Consider your budget when window shopping, as large areas of laminated window installation can add up. 

Panes

Opposed to large sheets of glass, window panes are divided into smaller squares of window divided by borders of wood, plastic or other materials. Paned windows can be bought in a large variety of sizes, from double-paned windows to as many panes as necessary to cover your desired window space. Window panes usually refer to the design of a window rather than the effectiveness of the glass for keeping out noise and heat. 

Approximate cost: The cost of window panes is contingent on how many panes you need for your home. In general, double-paned windows are the cheapest and start at $ 100. The pricing increases from there. 

Best for: Window panes are appealing to those looking to achieve a certain look to the exterior of their home. Often used in bedrooms, bathrooms, and kitchens, window panes also offer the benefit of partially opening the window by sliding to let in outside air. 

Pay attention to: Window panes can house a variety of glass. Pay attention to the type of glass used in the window panes to make sure you’re getting the best bang for your buck. 

Glazing

Glazing can refer to pre-glazed windows available for purchase or the process of glazing an existing window. Though the name sounds like the process of adding a glaze to the glass of a window, it actually refers to the sealant where window glass meets its border. Re-glazing windows involves a putty or sealant meant to increase heat control and air leakage. 

Approximate cost: Window glazing depends on the cost of your contractor as well as the size of your windows. The approximate cost has a large range, falling anywhere between $ 50 and over $ 1,000. 

Best for: Window glazing is appealing to those seeking better insulation in their windows. The process of window glazing is a maintenance procedure meant to enhance and extend the life of your windows.

Pay attention to: The material used matters in window glazing matters. Usually, a putty is used to refill cracks and corners of your window. Make sure your contractor is using a long-lasting and quality putty for the best results. 

Etched Glass Styles

Etched glass is a decorative technique used to increase the intrigue of windows. After the glass has been manufactured, etching is done by making small cuts in the glass to create a frosted coat. Etched glass offers the opportunity for a lot of creativity, as you can create designs and images using this technique. Some windows are sold with etched designs, while you can also retroactively get your windows etched. 

Approximate cost: Etched glass can be a breathtaking addition to any home, but comes at a price. Commissioned glass etching usually costs more than buying glass that has already been etched. It can cost $ 125 per square foot. Looking for a cheaper alternative? You can buy film for windows that makes it look etched.

Best for: Etched glass windows are appealing to those who aren’t as concerned with window durability, but rather are looking to add unique touches to their home. 

Pay attention to: If you’re planning to get glass windows etched in your home, consider the amount of glass you’re intending to use for the project. Getting large sheets of glass etched can be very expensive.

Netflix’s Sharp New Dramedy Gentefied Tells a Different Kind of Gentrification Story

Gentrification, as depicted in pop culture, tends to be a conflict between strangers. There are the original occupants of a suddenly desirable urban neighborhood, usually working-class immigrants and people of color. And then there are the relatively rich, young, college-educated white people who move in seeking cheaper housing or just the cachet of living somewhere “authentic,” only to drive up rents and displace the families and businesses that settled there long before the newcomers were born. But what if the line between gentrifiers and gentrified isn’t so clear? What happens when—due to differences in education, language, dreams, experience and responsibilities, as well as the complexity of hybrid identities—second- and third-generation immigrants end up in the middle of a war between their elder relatives and their white peers?

These are the central questions of Gentefied, a bilingual dramedy premiering on Netflix Feb. 21. Adapted by creators Marvin Lemus and Linda Yvette Chávez from their web series of the same name, with America Ferrera attached as executive producer, it follows three Mexican-American cousins in the predominantly Latinx East Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights as they scramble to help their grandfather Casimiro (Joaquín Cosio of Narcos: Mexico) save his taqueria. Erik (JJ Soria of The Oath) is a sweet screw-up desperate to win back his upwardly mobile ex (Annie Gonzalez). A pragmatist saving for culinary school, Chris (MTV Tr3s alum Carlos Santos) works the line at a fancy restaurant. Ana (Karrie Martin, Pretty Little Liars) is—to her mother’s chagrin—an artist, juggling her work with odd jobs and a serious girlfriend, Yessika (Julissa Calderon).

Boorish white people linger in the background throughout the 10-episode first season, swanning into the botánica in yoga pants for some cultural tourism and ignoring the mariachi band hired to enhance the atmosphere of their boozy brunch. But the real gentrification drama happens within Casimiro’s family and between other Boyle Heights natives. Chris’ efforts to satisfy his boss, an abusive chef who could make or break his career, earn him the scorn of Latinx co-workers; at the taqueria, his high-end menu tweaks mark him as a “coconut” (brown on the outside, white on the inside). Meanwhile, Ana’s ethnic identity, sexuality, politics and ambition come into conflict when a gay white man hires her to paint a homoerotic mural on a building he purchased in the neighborhood—and the older woman who operates a store inside it starts losing business. For these millennials, it seems impossible to make their dreams come true without selling out their heritage and their elders.

Kevin Estrada/NetflixKarrie Martin and Julissa Calderon in ‘Gentefied’

Lemus and Chávez identify a catch-22 inherent in the American Dream: when you suffer to secure your kids a better life in a new country, that better life—shaped as it is by the possibilities and values of a different culture—will probably look different from the one you imagined. And that might feel like a betrayal. This has been a theme of nearly every recent series about the children of immigrants, from Master of None to Fresh Off the Boat to One Day at a Time. What’s unique about Gentefied is the way it pulls back to situate that intergenerational conflict within a larger community, where a Chicana garment worker might have more common ground with the Chinese woman at the next sewing machine than with her own daughter. The show picks up on class differences among Latinx people in Boyle Heights, whether it’s business owners, their employees and a wide variety of customers or homeless families and the nonprofit workers charged with helping them find housing.

To a certain extent, this approach also distinguishes Gentefied from Vida, the exceptional Starz drama in which two adult sisters from the same neighborhood reunite at their childhood home after the death of their mother, who owned both the building they grew up in and the insolvent bar on its ground floor. The shows aren’t quite as similar as they might sound. (Some might still protest that we don’t need two series about the children of Mexican immigrants trying to save their families’ Boyle Heights businesses. To them, I say: remember when NBC debuted two shows about the making of network-TV sketch comedies in the same season?) Vida tells a more intimate, mature story, one that’s just as attuned to the complexities of gentrification yet also delves into themes such as womanhood, power and desire. It’s deep where Gentefied is broad.

The elegance of Vida’s storytelling throws its successor’s minor weaknesses into relief. Despite multifaceted characters and convincing performances (particularly from Cosio and Soria), Lemus and Chávez’s dialogue sometimes feels preachy, mawkish or on-the-nose. When they argue, Chris and Erik are reduced to mouthpieces for diametrically opposite points of view. A few scenes, such as the one where a woman stares longingly into a bakery window full of pastries she can’t afford, verge on cliché.

The show is best when it finds quieter ways to communicate: when it spends a full episode following a broke musician and his little boy; when Casimiro, a gentle widower in permanent mourning, takes a patient female friend on a date without realizing it; when we see it silently dawn on Yessika that Ana might care more about stardom than about giving back to her community. Of the many series about immigration, gentrification and cross-cultural identities that have sprung up in the past several years, Gentefied is among the most astute. It only needs to trust that its cast will convey everything that’s left unsaid—and that viewers will read between the subtitles.

How to wear winter white, styled five different ways

How to wear winter white, styled five different ways


How to wear winter white, styled five different ways

Fashion is a fickle beast, with new trends cropping up more often than you change your contact lenses. We know how hard it can be to keep up with those trends, while figuring out how to pull them off can be even more difficult. With our series Try the Trend, we show you different ways to make a current fashion craze work for you, no matter your price point. This month, fashion writer Stephanie Montes shows us how to wear winter white. 

Arguably one of the best parts of winter—besides snow days, cabin getaways, and all the hot chocolate we ingest—is the thrill of stepping out in your winter wardrobe. Trend in mind? Winter white. However, styling an outfit in a single color family—and in this case, the lack thereof—can be a little tricky. To make things easier, I’ve rounded up five different ways to wear the winter white look that are anything but bland. Think layering, tons of texture, and mixing color tones. Ahead, five outfits you can wear to any occasion, from workwear to après-ski, while looking white-hot. Now, if we only had tips for keeping them white, but that’s all on you. 

1. Winter white for work

Stephanie Montes

There’s something about wearing head-to-toe white that makes you look and feel like you have your life together—and we’re here for it. For an outfit that will get you noticed around the office for looking like the boss lady that you are, try a pair of tailored trousers, a simple turtleneck, and white mules. A coat draped over your shoulders and a structured bag (especially in a contrasting color) complete the look à la Olivia Pope.

Shop the look:

Brushed Double Breasted Belted Wool Look Coat available at Boohoo | $ 63

Croc Embossed Double Handle Tote Bag available at Shein | $ 19

2. Winter white for brunch

Stephanie Montes

Dressing for Sunday brunch is an art form. It’s a perfectly acceptable occasion to dress up a bit, but you definitely want to feel comfortable while you load up on French toast and mimosas. An oversized sweater-dress feels cozy, while a pair of over-the-knee snakeskin boots add a head-turning element. Cheers to that!

Shop the look:

Cocoa Sweater in Ivory available at Free People | $ 148


Unisa Stefni Over-The-Knee Boot available at DSW | $ 80

3. Winter white for running errands

Stephanie Montes

Just because it’s your day off doesn’t mean your look should also have an off day. Whether you’re running errands or spending the day at home watching Netflix, a two-piece sweat outfit in off-white is comfortable and not the least bit dowdy. In case you do step outside, a bright white puffer coat adds just as much warmth as it does contrast, plus an added cool factor. And speaking of cool, a pair of all-white Dr. Martin’s is just what you need to complete your look.

Shop the look:

Neeped Lightweight Oversized Hoodie available at Boohoo | $ 17

winter-white
Neeped Lightweight Oversized Jogger available at Boohoo | $ 17

Free People Hailey White Hooded Oversized Puffer Coat available at Lulus | $ 128

Dr. Martens Combs Platform Combat Boot available at DSW | $ 90

4. Winter white for a night out

Stephanie Montes

A bias-cut slip dress is a classic dress style that will always be on trend. In a creamier color, it’s the perfect alternative to your usual little black dress. To edge it up a bit, pair the silky fabric with a white moto jacket and a flirty block heel. Date night outfit = complete.

Shop the look:

Faux Leather Zip Biker Jacket available at Boohoo | $ 21


Sadie Satin Midi Slip Dress available at Fashion Nova | $ 40


Nuala Off White Peep-Toe Mules available at Lulus | $ 21

5. Winter white for a casual Friday

Stephanie Montes

When you want to look polished but not too dressed up, white flared jeans will be the winter staple you’ll need on repeat. However, since white can lack dimension, incorporating different textures into your look will add a ton of visual interest and keep the style looking fresh. While you’re at it, top it off with a western-inspired hat to lean into that cowboy-chic style.

Shop the look:

I’ll Be Fine Off-The-Shoulder Sweater available at Akira | $ 50


Highest Waist Flare Jean available at American Eagle | $ 50

Simple Visions Fedora available at Fashion Nova | $ 20

Yee-haw!

The Career Makeover: Career Transitions Require a Different Mindset In the Digital Age

In my work as a professional executive and business coach, I encounter people who are facing career transitions, whether they are vying for another position inside their own company, considering starting a business, looking for a new job, or planning to move into a new industry.

This summer, I had the pleasure of meeting some of them at the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) Convention and Job Fair as a speaker on a panel that focused on career makeovers.

How did I even get in there, let alone on the platform? I’m a journalist by training and was one early in my profession while working on my master’s degree. Then I pivoted to public relations, which found me at global agencies, eventually running my own agency then ultimately landing at a Fortune 9 to do that same work in house as “the client.”

No doubt that in that brief rundown in my journey, you noted several career transitions. I have moved from journalist to PR agency, to PR agency owner to corporate, to media owner and B2B creator, and again to entrepreneur, professional speaker, and coach. It is safe to say that in business, I’ve lived it.  

Someone at the event asked me, “how did you know when it was time to transition in your career?”

That’s the thing about change. Change comes to us two ways: either we initiate it, or it is thrust upon us.

Our entire careers, our lives are a continuum, and therefore you need an always-on transitional mindset, which means you’re not only planning for change, you are ready for it, no matter how it comes. This isn’t the way most of our parents taught us, and this is indeed cultural—from generation to generation—and also as people of color.

Shaking an “Analog Mindset” for Your Career Transitions

I’ve written extensively about managing your personal brand and even your digital footprint, but managing a mindset goes deeper. We were taught a very linear and fixed mindset when it comes to work by our Boomer and GenX parents: You graduate from school. You land a “good job” at a “stable” company. You stay there. You put your head down and work until opportunity comes to you. Then you retire. Then you enjoy life with your grandchildren while reaping the benefits of your pension, and die a very happy person; a life well-lived. Who could blame them? It worked for them, for the most part.

But this way of thinking will indeed get you stuck in this digital age. If you are living an old-school analog career, know that it will bite you. Change is coming, whether you want it or not.

The stats are clear. Companies do not plan to keep workers for more than 3-5 years. That means that if you’ve been lucky enough to be in a job for more than 7-10 years, you are leftover from a simpler time and you probably should be on your toes and prepared to embrace change.

Industrial companies that have been around for decades and generations are now scaling to compete with younger, more agile and digital companies like Google and Amazon. This means they need to be more nimble. To be nimble, you need a workforce with different skills—transformational leadership is one term that comes up often. It means that the workers need to be able to usher in change or manage through it, but always, always innovating. That is not what your parents told you to do. This means you have to be willing to shake things up and move beyond the status quo. Repetitive jobs will be automated, and artificial intelligence will take over. So those tasks and assignments that take real thinking will require real people who can think on their toes, innovate, change on a dime, and be resilient enough to weather it all.

That is a tall order for someone who is waiting for the company to make their next move on their behalf. It doesn’t feel safe at all, does it? Even if you do an amazing job at it, you must be ready to pivot.

You can thank millennials and Gen Z (or centennials) in part for this as well. They don’t want to stay in a position longer than three to five years before they move on to their next because they want a speedier increase in pay and better titles to go with it. Staying in one company for too long is not only slow but to them, it may also be boring.

In this climate, if you think that ageism is the only factor that can knock you out of the running for a coveted position, passed over—or worse—laid off, this “analog” mindset that I’ve just described actually will. We all have to “young-up” our thinking to be ready for change and also take on a transitional mindset before someone or something else forces the transition.

How Can You Thrive in the Digital Age?

Here are some key questions to ask yourself that can guide you to a transitional mindset shift, which is required by this digital age:

  • Change is inevitable. How will you adapt today?
  • What’s the worst that can happen? Is it possible to plan for it? Can change be less scary if you plan?
  • What if you can have a fulfilling career the way you want it? Since you are skilled and excellent, how can you switch it up according to your passions, purpose, and superpowers?

Now, what’s holding you back from living your best career life?

You’ve just been coached, and hopefully, you have agreed with yourself to take on some actions that will move you past the fear of moving forward. After all, that is usually what keeps us stuck in life and our careers. 

A great example of someone who has taken the reins on his career transitions proactively is Houston TV news anchor and NABJ member Shannon LaNier. He uses social media and an authoritative stance on key cultural issues to punch up his personal brand. LaNier is #DaddyDuty365, and his ancestry as the 6th great-grandson of Thomas Jefferson and his slave Sally Hemings has positioned him to write a book and travel the country speaking on issues of diversity and equality. He recently joined me on The Culture Soup Podcast®️ to talk about his career and how a business/brand on the side positions you for exciting opportunities. I invite you to take a listen and be inspired.

How will you makeover your career? Or will you wait until it’s necessary?

Alabama commit Latrell McCutchin received personal letters from 7 different Tide coaches after knee injury

How do elite college football programs keep underclass pledges committed? By doing major market football program things like having every coach send a personal letter to a recruit of significance.

That’s precisely what Nick Saban and his Alabama coaching staff did for elite Class of 2021 recruit Latrell McCutchin, a four-star cornerback from LBJ High School in Austin, Texas.

McCutchin committed to the Crimson Tide in June, picking Alabama over hometown Texas in a decision that stunned many. McCutchin stayed committed to Alabama throughout the summer, but then suffered a torn ACL early in the Jaguars season and has been forced to miss the rest.

While he recovers at home, the Alabama coaching staff made sure McCutchin knows he’s not forgotten in Tuscaloosa by sending him seven different letters offering injury condolences and inspiration. All seven apparently arrived on the same day, and each was handwritten by a different coach (or someone mimicking that coach’s handwriting).

The gimmick clearly had its intended effect:

While McCutchin may be lacking time on the field, he’s not lacking attention off it. In addition to Alabama’s efforts, and continued attention from his hometown Longhorns, McCutchin has also added scholarship offers from Ohio State and Tennessee since the season got started earlier this month, per Touchdown Alabama magazine.

For now, every other program still takes a back seat to Alabama, and their efforts to remain in the field of vision of an injured player states away.

Democrats’ Different Takes On Tackling Health Care


Kaiser Health News reporter Emmarie Huetteman joined Connecticut Public Radio’s Lucy Nalpathanchil on the “Where We Live” program Tuesday to talk about Democratic presidential candidates’ health care plans.

She discussed how the current Medicare program works and how some candidates, including Sens. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Kamala Harris of California, have offered plans that would build a national health care program using Medicare as a guide. And she contrasted that with the plan pitched by former Vice President Joe Biden that would include a health plan offered by the government that consumers could opt into. She also took questions from listeners.

The program is available here.

Some of your favorite ‘Stranger Things’ characters almost looked a lot different

Stranger Things

“Jopper” is the affection fan-named pairing of old childhood flames Jim Hopper and Joyce Byers on Netflix’s Stranger Things, with the bestowing of that nickname a testament not only to how much fans adore the gruff sheriff and loving mom but also how perfectly matched the actors are who portray them.

So perfectly matched, in fact, that it’s almost impossible to see how the Duffer Brothers, who created the hit Netflix series, were considering Ewan McGregor and Sam Rockwell at one point for the role of Hopper. While Naomi Watts and Marissa Tomei were likewise possible considerations for the character of Ms. Byers.

Samsung’s Bezel-Less Galaxy Note 10 Arrives in Two Different Models

Confirming numerous leaks, Samsung announced today at its Unpacked event that its forthcoming Galaxy Note 10‘s will be arriving in two different sizes with several different color options alongside a 5G variant model.

The Galaxy Note 10’s are nearly bezel-less smartphones with a front-facing camera embedded in the center of the screen. As such, the smaller Galaxy Note 10 model’s 6.3-inch screen appears bigger and more compact, despite being the same size as last year’s model. The display resolution comes in at 2,280 x 1,080, a step down in quality from the previous model and its quad HD display.

Meanwhile, The Galaxy Note 10+ boasts Samsung’s biggest screen to date, a 6.8-inch AMOLED display that features HDR10+ with a 3,040 x 1,440 resolution. Both smartphones possess three lenses on its back camera: one ultrawide 16-megapixel lens, a telephoto 12-megapixel, and a VGA depth-vision camera for augmented reality apps. They also have the same 10-megapixels front-facing camera.

Both the Galaxy Note 10+ utilize a Snapdragon 855 processor, but the Note 10+ has 12GB of RAM, with choices of 256GB and 512GB storage and a micro SD slot for more memory. However, the standard Galaxy Note 10 only has 8GB RAM option with no SD slot for expansion. The new S-Pen now also has a built-in accelerometer and gyroscope that enables air gestures, like flicking the pen to switch cameras in the photo app.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ starts at $ 1,100 USD while the standard version will cost $ 949 USD. Colors include Aura Black, White, Blue, and Glow Purple. Both will ship August 23 but are available for preorder today. There are also preorder options for the 5G version of the Galaxy Note 10+ exclusive to Verizon customers for a limited time that begins the same date the other phones ship.

This is why Archie Harrison has a different surname to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Words by Maisie Bovingdon 

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, into the world on May 6, but the family of three made their public appearance as a trio, and announced their son’s name, two days later.

There has been a lot of speculation over baby Sussex’s name, with some saying Archie is an acronym of Meghan’s real name Rachel, while Harrison is meant to stand for Harry’s son.

But then there’s the question surrounding Archie’s surname.  Prior to Archie’s birth Sussex Royal’s Instagram account addressed him as ‘Baby Sussex’, and it was believed that would be the surname he would take. So why is he a Mountbatten-Windsor and not Sussex?

Answer: It’s to do with his royal title.

Royal tradition has seen Prince Harry and Prince William take the title of their father’s Dukedom Wales when they were children, although this changed for William and his children when he married Kate Middleton, and the entire family took the surname Cambridge after his Dukedom.

Archie – who is seventh in line to take the throne – bucked the trend because he doesn’t have a royal title of His Royal Highness, which means he has to take the royal family’s official surname of Mountbatten-Windsor, the Mirror Online has reported.

The Queen could have given Archie the three initials HRH to add to his name, but didn’t, and if a royal descendant doesn’t take His or Her Royal Highness automatically use Mountbatten-Windsor.

While Harry has kept the surname Sussex, which the former Suits actress has also adopted, Meghan is still known by her maiden name Markle.

Glad we cleared that up!

Prince Louis’ birthday portrait is VERY different to his brother and sister’s photos

Words by Maisie Bovingdon

Prince Louis celebrated his first birthday on the 23rd of April, and to mark the milestone Kensington Palace released adorable portraits of him ahead of his big day, and boy were they cute!

Kate Middleton and Prince William gave fans a special treat over the weekend as they shared a trio of images of their youngest child on Kensington Palace’s social media accounts, and our hearts well and truly melted.

The three images included one of Louis in a blue knitted jumper with a dog emblazoned on the front – which we believe could be a tribute to the Queen’s late corgi – and another two of him sporting a berry red knitted jumper and pair of chinos, as he beams with happiness at the camera and shows off his toothy grin.

These photos are very different to the first birthday pictures of his siblings – but did you notice why?

Back in 2014, three photos were shared of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s first born, Prince George. Two images saw the little prince in his element playing with his mum and dad, at the Sensational Butterflies exhibition in the Natural History Museum.

A separate photograph saw him walking around the London hotspot wearing a pair of blue striped dungarees, a blue polo top and matching blue shoes. Though he ambled around the grounds solo he still seemed very poised and pristine.

Similar to Louis, George was distracted in the shots and did not look directly at the camera, but Louis was left entirely to his own devices to play in the grounds, reach for the camera, and giggle to his heart’s content as he rolled around in the grass on the day of the shoot (adorable!)

Two years after George in 2016, images of Princess Charlotte, looking pretty in pink playing inside at Anmer Hall in Norfolk, were released ahead of her May birthday.

Charlotte’s images bucked the trend as she posed inside the royal residence, whereas George and Louis’ pictures were both taken outdoors. Louis and Charlotte’s pictures were taken at the same location in Norfolk, while George’s took place in London.

In some images Charlotte plays with her toys, but unlike her brothers, she looked straight faced as she gazed down the lens like a true pro.

Charlotte started something; the solo shot. For Charlotte and Louis’ first birthday pictures they were not accompanied by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, although George was for a few of the takes.

The main difference between the three is that Louis looks like he is in his element and is in a less formal set-up, with not a care in the world. His jumper is covered in strands of grass, which, alongside the massive open smile on his face, hints Louis was giving free rein to do what he wanted without anyone cleaning up after him or giving orders (although they may have done and he just didn’t listen #idol).

However, the first birthday pictures of his older brother and sister appeared more staged and less like the relaxed and playful environment Louis found himself in.

Eagle-eyed fans will notice some similarities in their appearance in the photographs, as all three children have their hair swept over to one side, all wore the same navy strap shoes as well as blue garments.

Regardless, we love them all and are eagerly waiting for pictures to be released of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s little one, who is tipped to arrive any time this month… Eek!

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.
