On a crowded block of Brooklyn, Michael Kors and Bette Middler managed to make the longest day of the year feel like a walk in the park — most literally.
Kors and his husband, Lance Le Pere, joined Midler Thursday night to kick off the New York Restoration Project’s grand opening of the Essex Street Community Garden with a ribbon cutting and summer solstice block party for the Brooklyn neighborhood.
“This is a gift from the heart,” Midler said before cutting the ribbon with garden shears. “We want you to take it into your hearts and let it be the special place in your lives. Please, it’s yours. It’s for you. Enjoy it.”
Kors and his husband partnered with Midler and the NYPR to develop the community park — a 3,200-square-foot green haven that can be used for growing, gathering and celebrating alike. The space will be the first NYC Community garden to be 100 percent solar-powered, featuring a gazebo, Wi-Fi, a projection screen for events and plenty of greenery hand-planted by Kors, Le Pere and NYRP community gardeners.
“I’m a born and bred New Yorker, and I think in New York, what’s the greatest luxury? The greatest luxury is space and nature,” Kors

The Ninth Gate Johnny Depp, Frank Langella, Emanuelle Seigner, Lena Olin, Emmanuelle Seigner, Barbara Jefford, Jack Taylor, Jose Lopez Rodero, James Russo, Tony Amoni Synopsis: Corso (Depp) is a rather dubious rare book finder, whose services are engaged by the owner of one of Europe’s largest collection of demonic texts. The prize of his collection is a 16th century tome entitled “The Nine Gates,” a book containing nine etchings that supposedly hold the key to summoning Satan himself. Dean Corso (Johnny Depp) is highly skilled at his work, a position which requires dexterity, cultural expertise, nerves of steel…and few scruples. Known for locating rare books for wealthy collectors, Corso is hired by eminent book-lover and scholar of demonology, Boris Balkan (Frak Langella). Corso’s mission: to find the last two volumes of the legendary manual of satanic invocation “The Nine Gates of the Shadow Kingdom,” compare them with Balkan’s first volume, supposedly the only one of its kind, and ascertain the authenticity of the series….
It was rush hour on Friday in San Francisco, and traffic on the Golden Gate Bridge came to a grinding halt — all thanks to two rather unexpected guests.
According to NBC News, two deer wandered onto the Golden Gate Bridge at around 5.30 p.m. and promptly stopped up the flow of traffic on three northbound lanes. The deer appear to have entered from the southern end of the bridge, the news outlet said, and were running toward Marin County.
The duo reportedly got off the bridge safely and commuters were soon able to continue their journeys.

“You just don’t see this everyday,” wrote one Instagrammer who snapped a photo of the two deer sauntering across the bridge. “#deergate2014”

The Mormon handcart tragedy of 1856 is the worst disaster in the history of the Western migrations, and yet it remains virtually unknown today outside Mormon circles. Following the death of Joseph Smith, founder of the Mormon church, its second Prophet and new leader, Brigham Young, determined to move the faithful out of the Midwest, where they had been constantly persecuted by their neighbors, to found a new Zion in the wilderness. In 1846-47, the Mormons made their way west, generally following the Oregon Trail, arriving in July 1847 in what is today Utah, where they established Salt Lake City. Nine years later, fearing a federal invasion, Young and other Mormon leaders wrestled with the question of how to bring thousands of impoverished European converts, mostly British and Scandinavian, from the Old World to Zion. Young conceived of a plan in which the European Mormons would travel by ship to New York City and by train to Iowa City. From there, instead of crossing the plains by covered wagon, they would push and pull wooden handcarts all the way to Salt Lake. But the handcart plan was badly flawed. The carts, made of green wood, constantly broke down; the baggage allowance of seventeen pounds per adult was far too small; and the food provisions were woefully inadequate, especially considering the demanding physical labor of pushing and pulling the handcarts 1,300 miles across plains and mountains. Five companies of handcart pioneers left Iowa for Zion that spring and summer, but the last two of them left late. As a consequence, some 900 Mormons in these two companies were caught in early snowstorms in Wyoming. When the church leadership in Salt Lake became aware of the dire circumstances of these pioneers, Younglaunched a heroic rescue effort. But for more than 200 of the immigrants, the rescue came too late. The story of the Mormon handcart tragedy has never before been told in full despite its stunning human drama: At least five times as many people died

“An Adult is someone who can provide for themselves. As Adults you must provide for yourselves, by skills, strength or the use of the property that you have acquired. Can you do it? Can I go out into the world and cleave a living from it? Can you stand in that world saying ‘Am I going to eat tonight? Am I going to have clothes to wear? A roof over my head? The answers depend on me’.”Seven young men and women of Ashford Village aim to reach that status. Marvin fails and falls in with bad company. The other six strive to craft a life and livelihood by their own skills and strengths. Liane and Roget are skilled metalworkers already. Karin is the daughter of a lord and Mallick was found on the Temple steps as a baby. The other two are Aspen – daughter of the castle’s head cook and Sandy, son of a farmer.They have to meet each other in single combat, then leave their homes for a year to prove they can live by their own effortsCan Karin put her life of ease behind her?Will Mallick be accepted as one of the elite “Adults”.Is Aspen able to rise above her somewhat lowly origins?The six escort a carter’s wagons to the Village of Westport.

Aspen and Mallick have paired up; Liane and Roget are pledged to each other.
