PEOPLE Explains: Jessica Chambers’ Alleged Murderer Goes on Trial Again

The murder still startles with its brutality.

On a back road of Courtland, Mississippi, after sundown on Dec. 6, 2014, someone splashed an accelerant on Jessica Chambers and set both her and her black 2005 Kia Rio aflame. The 19-year-old former high school cheerleader, who was then working at a local department store, died hours after authorities discovered her walking near the vehicle with burns over 98 percent of her body.

Among her final words were those presumed to identify her attacker.

After months of investigation, prosecutors built their case against Quinton Tellis, now 29, a recent acquaintance of Chambers who had grown up in her neighborhood and attended her same high school years earlier.

The prosecution claimed phone records placed the two together before Chambers died and Tellis had admitted to police that they were together that day.

In alleging a motive, authorities said recovered text messages between the two showed that on the day she was attacked, Chambers had rejected Tellis’ requests for sex four times, reported TV station WMC.

In court last year, prosecutor John Champion argued that Tellis and Chambers eventually had sex that December night, after which he tried to suffocate her before setting her and her vehicle on fire, believing she was already dead.

But jurors who weighed the allegations — including the claim that several first-responders heard Chambers utter a name that sounded like “Eric” or “Derek,” neither of which fit the accused — were divided over guilt or innocence when Tellis was tried for capital murder last fall.

With the jury unable to reach a verdict, the judge declared a mistrial.

Tellis will go back on trial on Sept. 24 in a courtroom in Batesville, Mississippi, where the first trial unfolded 11 months ago.

He has maintained his innocence.

As the retrial moves forward, the identity of “Eric” has remained front and center.

Circuit Judge Gerald Chatham cleared Champion, the local district attorney, of misconduct after he was accused by the defense of coaching a potential witness to say that Chambers called Tellis by that name, according to the Commercial Appeal. Defense attorney Darla Palmer has appealed that decision.

If convicted of murder in the Chambers case, Tellis faces life in prison without parole.

The grisly mystery of who attacked the teenager lasted for more than a year — underscoring anxieties about a killer possibly hiding in the community and drawing scrutiny to the rough crowd with whom Chambers spent time, as local drug dealers and her exes were questioned.

Among the national headlines the case made was a PEOPLE cover story in January 2016.

After an extensive investigation, Tellis was indicted in February 2016. Authorities had zeroed in on the phone records that they alleged placed him with Chambers at the approximate time of her attack, with Tellis’ DNA on her car keys.

Defense attorney Palmer reportedly said Tellis was several miles away at a store purchasing a pre-paid debit card. She further argued that Chambers’ apparent identification of her attacker as “Eric” cleared her client, because neither Chambers nor the person who had introduced her and Tellis knew Tellis by that name, according to the Clarion-Ledger.

In turn, the prosecution called burn expert Dr. William Hickerson, who testified that injuries to Chambers’ mouth and tongue were so severe that she likely would not have been able to pronounce words correctly. (Chambers was unable to provide responders with more than a first name.)

Even so, the district attorney told jurors that investigators had considered and ruled out several Erics and Dereks before charges were filed against Tellis, whom authorities have described as a “habitual” criminal offender and who is accused in an unrelated killing in Louisiana.

The conclusion of his first trial last October had its own drama, as the jury initially filed into the courtroom to announce its verdict only to be short-circuited by one juror who said the unannounced decision was not unanimous, as required.

Judge Chatham, who oversaw that trial and will preside over the retrial, then sent the jurors back for further deliberations — and when they returned a second time, a verdict of not-guilty was announced.

But when Chatham polled jurors individually, several said they had voted “guilty.”

That led the judge to send the divided panel back a second time for further deliberations, and then again a third time, before he acknowledged they were “hopelessly deadlocked.”

Prosecutors quickly announced their intention to retry Tellis, who did not take the stand in his defense.

During police questioning, prosecutor Champion said, Tellis repeatedly changed his account of his whereabouts and activities on the day Chambers was attacked. Prosecutors further alleged that Tellis deleted all evidence of Chambers from his phone to distance himself from her.

“She had a life full of tomorrows, and she had every right to wake up on the morning of Dec. 7, 2014,” Champion said during his closing argument in the first trial. “Now, three years later, she’d be 22. Would she be married? Would she have kids? That was all taken away from her at 8:04 p.m. on Dec. 6, 2014.”

Tellis currently sits in a Mississippi state prison serving a five-year sentence after an unrelated conviction for burglarizing an unoccupied dwelling, jail records show.

He also is facing a murder charge in Louisiana, where authorities suspect he killed Meing-Chen Hsiao, a 34-year-old former Taiwanese exchange student found dead in August 2015 with multiple stab wounds, defensive wounds and slicing wounds in her upper back.

Tellis has pleaded not guilty in that case, which is pending the outcome of his trial in Chambers’ death.

Old Dominion Goes Old-School at Frye’s SoHo Store

It was a far cry from the stage at MetLife Stadium, but it was also dry.
Three days ago, Old Dominion was opening for Kenny Chesney when strong storms caused a temporary evacuation of the arena in New Jersey. Although fans were eventually allowed to return and the show went on, lead singer Matthew Ramsey said the band still performed in a virtual downpour.
On Tuesday night, the Academy of Country Music’s reigning Vocal Group of the Year played an acoustic set at the Frye flagship in SoHo that was part of the boot company’s Fryedays event, a music program that features intimate live performances from established and emerging artists. Other performers have included the Brothers Osborne, a country duo who are featured in Frye’s Hometown Pride advertising campaign. T.J. and John Osborne played a Fryedays event in Las Vegas in April before the ACM awards.
This was the first Fryedays event in New York City. Other performers have included Langhorne Slim, The Lone Bellow, Shakey Graves and Liz Cooper.
“This is a little different,” Ramsey said backstage after the Frye show, where he and his bandmates sat on stools playing guitars. “But much more dry. As soon as we came out on stage

17-Year Old Az. Girl Goes Missing After She Was Heard Screaming — and Boyfriend, 24, Is Suspect

Authorities are searching for a 17-year-old Arizona girl who was last heard from when her brother heard her screaming last Friday afternoon, according to a news release from Phoenix police.

The brother of Rosa Garcia-Acosta then spotted a grayish white SUV-type vehicle driving away from their family’s house, according to the release.

Four days later, authorities continue to believe that Garcia-Acosta, whom they describe as an “endangered juvenile,” was abducted and may be headed to Mexico in the company of 24-year-old Luis Fernando Morales, according to a police news release.

“The suspect is her boyfriend,” Phoenix police spokesman Sgt. Armando Carbajal tells PEOPLE.

“There is a history of controlling behavior on the part of Luis,” police said in a statement.

Morales, at 6-foot-4-inches and 265 pounds, stands almost a foot taller than Garcia-Acosta and is twice as heavy. Authorities say the teen girl is 5-feet-5-inches tall, weighs 130 lbs. and has brown hair and brown eyes.

She was last seen at the family’s residence near 75th Avenue and Camelback Road in Phoenix.

Ministry of Supply Goes Back to Roots on Kickstarter

SMART SUIT: Boston performance workwear brand Ministry of Supply has gone back to Kickstarter for the launch of an intelligent jacket.
It’s a return to its roots given the company launched in 2012 its first-ever product on the funding platform, which Ministry of Supply cofounder and chief executive officer Aman Advani said has “an audience that appreciates paving a new way or path.”
“For us, it’s an opportunity to elevate a particular launch. Initially, it was our dress shirt and now it’s our jacket,” Advani said of the decision to go through Kickstarter. “When you take a product to it [Kickstarter], there’s an assumption that you’re not just making something 10 percent better. It’s 10 times better. You capture the attention of people. Crowdfunding is such a public acknowledgement of whether something actually matters.”
It’s also just plain practical from an obsolescence standpoint, he said. Companies are producing exactly what was ordered so there’s no supply chain waste.
The jacket itself is a test for the company as it looks to push the boundaries of what defines performancewear.
“Wearable tech is such a buzz word,” Advani said. “How can we actually integrate technology really seamlessly? We’d never done it before. It’s all been at the

Dior Homme Goes to Work on Denim

Dior Homme‘s Kris Van Assche has an affinity for denim. That much is obvious simply by looking at his expanded 28-item denim line for spring 2018. Details include the silver-embossed on black leather Dior logo, which was repositioned from the inside of garments to become a form of embellishment on the outside, and embroidered roses as patches on jacket shoulders with the word “Roses” inscribed below.
The brand on Monday unveiled a pop-up shop, which will showcase through Feb. 18 the collection at Patron of the New in Manhattan’s TriBeCa. That will be followed on Feb. 15 by an in-store shop at 424 Fairfax in Los Angeles, scheduled to operate through Feb. 25.
If the collection seems compact, the attention lavished upon it suggests that denim could become a permanent category for Dior Homme. There’s also the fact that the collection is being showcased in pop-up shops in seven international cities, an indication that this is no fly-by-night project. Besides Printemps Haussmann in Paris, where Dior Denim is available through March 15, pop-ups are set to bow in London, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Tokyo.

Cupcakes and Rose Petals! Britney Spears’ Boyfriend Goes All Out for Her 36th Birthday

Isn’t she lucky?

On Saturday, Britney Spears’ boyfriend Sam Asghari helped make her 36th birthday extra special.

The fitness model went all out putting together elaborate birthday decorations for the pop star, which included a romantic candle-filled room, a tiny table covered in cupcakes, a “Happy Birthday” balloon, and a collection of rose petals arranged in the shape of a heart on the floor.

“Happy Birthday baby,” Asghari can be heard saying in video footage of the celebration.

Spears, wearing a short black dress with a cutout back, had just two words to say to her boyfriend as she took it all in: “Thank you.”

“Couldn’t ask for a better way to kick off my birthday ❤🎂.” she wrote alongside the video.

Asghari also shared the same video on his social media account — and he couldn’t stop gushing about how wonderful Spears was in the caption.

“Thank you for being you, thank you for showing me the true meaning of a beautiful woman and a strong mother, and most of all thank you for being mine. I consider myself the luckiest man on this planet 🌎❤👫 @britneyspears#luckiestmanalive,” he wrote.

It’s been a year since the pair were first romantically linked after meeting on the set of Spears’ “Slumber Party” music video.

The couple have been inseparable since they started dating, going on cozy date nights, attending friends’ birthday parties and celebrating the holidays together — including New Year’s Eve and Valentine’s Day — and continuously sharing sweet photos of one another.

And while the couple’s romance may appear perfect, it was nearly a missed connection. The Grammy winner dug his phone number out of her bag nearly “five months” after he first gave it to her, she revealed in a January radio interview.

No Shirt, No Problem! Demi Lovato Goes Nude Under Her Suit Jacket at the MTV EMAs

On Sunday, Demi Lovato walked the red carpet at the European Music Awards rocking a daring new fashion trend.

The 25-year-old “Sorry, Not Sorry” singer showed off her fit frame at the annual event by wearing a slightly oversized black-and-white checkered suit jacket and matching pants — with no top underneath. She kept her locks long and straight with a center part.

This new shirtless trend was also seen on Kim Kardashian West just a week ago, when the Keeping Up With the Kardashians attended the LACMA Art + Film Gala sans top.

Lovato is currently in London for the EMAs — which are being hosted by Rita Ora — where she was nominated for “Best Pop” alongside Camila Cabello, Miley Cyrus, Shawn Mendes and Taylor Swift. This was Lovato’s first EMA nomination. Cabello ultimately took home the prize.

RELATED VIDEO: Demi Lovato Shows off Her Toned Frame in Orange One-Piece After Preaching Body Positivity

The singer recently opened up about her ongoing battle with her body image in her YouTube documentary Simply Complicated — which follows Lovato’s ups and downs as well as the making of her latest album, Tell Me You Love Me, over a course of seven months in early 2017.

“Food is still the biggest challenge in my life,” she said, explaining she had recently relapsed and purged.

Added Lovato, “I don’t want to give it the power that it controls my every thought but it’s something that I’m constantly thinking about. Body image, what I wish I could be eating, what I wish I could be eating next, what I wish I didn’t eat, you know it’s just constant. I get envious towards people who don’t struggle with an eating disorder because I think my life would be so much easier.”

“I have been very open and honest with about my struggles so I don’t think it was a huge weight lifted off my shoulders but it’s something I definitely feel relief from,” Lovato told PEOPLE of the therapeutic reflections into her 10 years in the industry. “Being so honest and open and talking about subjects that I never talked about before is a big part of why I feel relieved … I feel like I got to really speak my truth through the documentary and also through the album.”

Patrick DiLascia is injecting casual luxury into his latest line, Patrick.
The men’s retailer and designer, who appeared on Marcus Lemonis’ CNBC show “The Profit” with his label DiLascia, is now going after the higher end.
DiLascia, who has long been known for his Southern California lifestyle T-shirts with cheeky sayings such as “Extra” and “Pool Boy,” is now veering toward a full-fledged lifestyle brand with the build-out of a collection that is more than T-shirts, in addition to kids and the infusion of complementary brands into his retail business.
“It’s always been a dream of mine to have a collection rather than just T-shirts so we’re looking at doing higher price points and better fabrics, and it’s not going to be distributed as heavily as DiLascia has been,” the designer said. “When I met with some of my higher-end retailers we were discussing where the market was going. The top retailers in the high end are going to stay. Those lower-end retailers, like H&M and Topshop, are going to stay, and that middle’s going to basically be gone.

John McCain Goes on Hike with Daughter Meghan Just 3 Days After Brain Cancer Diagnosis

John McCain is not letting his brain cancer diagnosis prevent him from enjoying time with his daughter.

On Saturday, the 80-year-old politician went on a hike with his daughter Meghan McCain and their dog. “Amazing hike with Dad @SenJohnMcCain this morning,” Meghan, 32, wrote on Twitter. “Thank you all for your best wishes!”

Her message came attached to a photo of the two sitting on a bench overlooking the stunning terrain in Arizona, where John is recovering from a minimally invasive craniotomy he received at Phoenix’s Mayo Clinic on July 14 to remove a 5-cm blood clot associated with the cancer from above his left eye.

It was during that surgery when doctors first discovered the cancerous brain tumor associated with a blood clot.

The cancer, known as glioblastoma, is one of the most aggressive and highly invasive forms of cancer — and makes up about half of all malignant (cancerous) brain tumors, affecting around five people out of 100,000 per year. United States Senator Edward “Ted” Kennedy, Delaware attorney general (and son of former Vice President Joe Biden) Beau Biden also had glioblastoma.

The median survival rate is about 14 to 14.5 months (up from eight to 12 months in recent years), and with current treatment about 5% of patients make it to a survival rate of five years or more, TIME reported. Treatments include surgical resection (i.e. having as much of the brain tumor removed as possible via a roughly half-day surgical procedure), chemotherapy, and radiotherapy.

The former Republican presidential nominee said in a statement that the senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with his Mayo Clinic care team and that his “treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation.”

John, who has served Arizona in Congress since 1982, is a three-time survivor of melanoma, an aggressive skin cancer that can spread to the brain and cause bleeding. He was diagnosed with invasive melanoma in 2000, and has been regularly screened by his doctors.

Meghan remains glued to her father’s side since his health crisis, explaining on Twitter Wednesday that she, her mother Cindy, and her siblings (Douglas, 57, Andrew, 55, Sidney, 50, John Sidney, 31, James, 29, and Bridget, 25) have “endured the shock of the news,” and are now living “with the anxiety about what comes next.”

“It won’t surprise you to learn that in all this, the one of us who is most confident and calm is my father,” she wrote. “He is the toughest person I know. The cruelest enemy could not break him. The aggressions of political life could not bend him. So he is meeting this challenge as he has every other.”

“Cancer may afflict him in many ways: But it will not make him surrender. Nothing ever has,” she added.

She ended her emotional explaining that her love for her father will never go away.

“My love for my father is boundless, and like any daughter I cannot and do not wish to be in a world without him,” she wrote. “I have faith that those days remain far away. Yet even in this moment, my fears for him are overwhelmed by one thing above all: Gratitude for our years together, and the years still to come. He is a warrior at dusk, one of the greatest Americans of our age, and the worth heir to his father’s and grandfather’s name. But to me he is something more.”

“He is my strength, my example, my refuge, my confidante, my teacher, my rock, my hero — my dad,” Meghan concluded.

Photo Of Gal Gadot’s Husband Wearing ‘Wonderful’ Shirt Goes Viral

A post shared by Gal Gadot (@gal_gadot) on

Yaron Versano has a pretty super wife.

Gal Gadot told Glamour she met her businessman husband at a “very strange party in the Israeli desert.”

“It was all about yoga, chakras, and eating healthy — we didn’t exactly find ourselves there, but we found each other,” she said.

The couple was married in 2008 and now have two young kids. Gadot gave birth to their second child this year.

A post shared by Gal Gadot (@gal_gadot) on

The actress credits her husband with helping her stick to her goals of pursuing acting, and her perseverance obviously paid off. Gadot recently led “Wonder Woman” to thus far around $ 500 million worldwide, breathing new life into the DCEU. 

You don’t need to tell her husband how great she is. Versano already knows, and he has the T-shirt to prove it.

In a new photo that’s going viral, Versano stands behind Gadot wearing a pretty “wonderful” shirt in honor of his Wonder Woman wife.

The photo received more than 1.2 million views in just its first 12 hours of being uploaded to Imgur, which makes sense. The image is so cute that the only explanation for it existing is that it was molded out of clay and brought to life by Zeus.

As BuzzFeed noted, the shirt is also on Amazon, for all the other husbands who have super wives (which is, you know, all the husbands). 

But this shirt was clearly meant for one dude to wear, and it’ll hit you right in the feels.

Mario Testino Goes Larger Than Life in Berlin

MARIO MAKES IT BIG: Mario Testino’s “Undressed” is the Helmut Newton Foundation’s largest-scale show to date. In this exhibit of 50 published and private photographs of men and women often wearing nothing more than their tattoos, Testino blew up his images to completely fill the walls in three halls of Berlin’s graciously proportioned Museum of Photography.
Looming over 10 feet from the ceiling to the walls’ lower wood moldings, and spanning sometimes 23 feet in width, this site-specific installation conceived exclusively for the Helmut Newton Foundation offers a spectacular yet also intimate view. For as the photographer noted prior to the show’s opening June 2, the enormous size and full bleed from corner to corner means there are no distractions. The viewer is almost compelled to immerse his or herself in the images, turning from “a voyeur into a participant. We’re in a moment when people want to interact with what they see, and not just look. They want to be part of it, so who knows? Maybe people will now go home and take photos of each other like this.”
That means equal undressing rights for all, with full frontals, male and female, to enticing back views, moments of amorous play

Bella Hadid Goes Nearly Naked On The Cannes Red Carpet

Bella Hadid sure knows how work the sheer look. 

All eyes were on the 20-year-old model at amfAR’s 24th Cinema Against AIDS Gala in Cap d’Antibes Thursday during the Cannes Film Festival. She stunned in a completely sheer, embellished custom couture gown by Ralph & Russo (that she reportedly helped design). 

(Story continues after the photos.)

We dress confident, empowered women,” designer Michael Russo told People magazine. 

The dress took “days” to make, according to an Instagram post by Ralph & Russo. Thirty seamstresses used 13 different materials to embroider the gown. And the final product was seriously something.

Debra Messing Goes After Ivanka Trump In Scathing GLAAD Acceptance Speech

Debra Messing directly addressed first daughter Ivanka Trump on Saturday night while being honored at the 2017 GLAAD Media Awards in New York City.

The “Will & Grace” star spoke as “one Jewish mother to another” while delivering her acceptance speech, which was at turns hilarious and biting.

After thanking the LGBTQ advocacy organization for her Excellence in Media Award, Messing noted that unless you’re an “unenlightened straight, cisgender, white man, you are a target.” She then slammed President Donald Trump, calling him the “very bad and very orange man in our White House.”

But the actress and activist reserved the brunt of her scorn for Ivanka Trump, who operates in an official capacity as an unpaid assistant to the president. Messing told the audience full of advocates, journalists and celebrities that she wanted to make a “direct appeal” to the first daughter, whom she referred to as “the secretary of state.”

“It’s not enough to simply say that women’s issues are important to you,” she said. “It’s time to do something. You can change the lives of millions of women and children just by telling your dad stories about real people who are suffering.”

Messing challenged Ivanka to not let the president “separate immigrant mothers from their American-born children” or “take health care away from women who need it.” She also asked her to convince her father not to make trans kids like Gavin Grimm “fight in court for their basic human dignity.” Grimm, who was in attendance at the awards gala, is currently challenging his school for the right to use the restroom that corresponds with his gender identity.

Messing said she wanted Ivanka to “stop blindly defending” her father and start “defending what you say you believe in.”

“You can’t just write ‘#womenwhowork’ and think you’re advancing feminism,” Messing added. “You need to be a woman who does good work #saywhatyoumeanandmeanwhatyousay.”

“Imagine how you’ll feel, sitting at Passover seder, if you can tell your children that you fought for justice and freedom,” said the actress, who is set to reprise her role as Grace Adler this fall in a 10-episode run of the beloved and groundbreaking show “Will & Grace.” 

Messing has long been an advocate for the LGBTQ community and has been especially vocal in challenging Donald Trump since he began running for president, often using her Twitter account as a platform to speak out against him and his administration.

This Funny Ad Goes Out To Moms Who Swear

This new video goes out to all the moms who have ever cursed in front of their kids (i.e. all the moms).

In honor of Mother’s Day, Kraft Mac and Cheese released a funny new ad, based on a “survey” the brand conducted. The survey found that 74 percent of moms admit to swearing in front of their kid (which, let’s be real, means that the 26 percent of moms who denied it are full of it). In the video, “swearing expert” Melissa Mohr offers some funny, wholesome alternatives to curse words.

White House Correspondents Dinner Goes On, Without Donald Trump

An annual Washington tradition best known for celebrity guests and a comedy routine by the president continues on Saturday with neither.  

The White House Correspondents Association dinner, at the Washington Hilton in D.C.’s Dupont Circle neighborhood, will be held without President Donald Trump and the high-profile guests typically invited by news outlets that organize the event. Instead, this year’s dinner will include guests like the high-school journalists who brought down their principal with a story on her faked credentials. (The kids will be guests of HuffPost.)

Trump announced he was skipping the dinner in February, making him the first president in more than three decades to break the tradition. At the time, Trump and his administration were fiercely attacking reporters and media outlets. He described the media as “the enemy of the American people,” threatened to change libel laws so he can more easily sue news organizations, attacked the media for using unnamed sources in stories critical of his administration, and blocked certain outlets, including HuffPost, from attendance at press briefings.

Saturday’s correspondents dinner will still feature a roast of the president, delivered by “The Daily Show” correspondent Hasan Minhaj, a Muslim comedian who has condemned Trump’s anti-Muslim actions. It’s a safe bet that there will be plenty of jabs at the president’s expense.  

Still, this year’s correspondents dinner will be a diminished affair compared with past years. Much of the star power typically drawn to the dinner will instead be concentrated at an alternative event thrown by “Full Frontal” host Samantha Bee. The New Yorker and Vanity Fair have canceled the extravagant after-parties they typically hold. And Trump is holding a rally at the same time as the dinner, presumably to divert attention from the Washington event.

Jeff Mason, president of the White House Correspondents Association, said this year’s dinner would focus on its original purpose: funding scholarships for aspiring journalists and recognizing the work of reporters covering the presidency. 

“We look forward to shining a spotlight at the dinner on some of the best political journalism of the past year and recognizing the promising students who represent the next generation of our profession,” Mason said in a statement.

Given Trump’s anti-media attacks, the dinner also is likely to focus on freedom of the press and the media’s watchdog role in government.

Blake Lively Goes Off On Reporter Who Asks About Her ‘Power Outfit’

Blake Lively was having none of the status-quo red carpet sexism while attending Variety’s Power of Women event Friday. 

The actress, who is one of Variety’s honorees, was answering questions on the red carpet at New York City’s Cipriani when she was asked about her go-to “power outfit” by a female reporter, according to the New York Daily News. 

“Come on, you want to talk about an outfit today?” she asked. “Come on, what about building women up? Outfits? Would you ask a man that? … You wouldn’t ask a man what a power outfit was. I’m sorry.” 

A Twitter video from the moment shows Lively telling the reporter it’s time to learn ― and change. 

Back in January, Lively joined the Women’s March in New York City to help be a face for the movement. She has been vocal about championing women’s rights, for herself, for her daughters and for complete strangers. 

When it comes to raising her children, she is conscious about pushing back against Hollywood’s beauty standards

“We have really unrealistic beauty standards and beauty norms,” Lively told Refinery29 in February. “What you’re seeing on red carpets and in magazines takes a lot of effort and a lot of people. People don’t understand that it’s all very constructed. What little girls are seeing isn’t what [these celebrities] look like when they wake up in the morning — even though it’s no less beautiful.”

Eiffel Tower Goes Dark To Mourn Victims Of Stockholm Attack

At midnight in Paris, the Eiffel Tower went dark to mourn the lives lost during Friday’s suspected terrorist attack in Sweden’s capital.

At least four people were killed and more than a dozen injured after a vehicle drove into a crowd of people at a shopping district in Stockholm. 

“Sweden has been attacked,” Prime Minister Stefan told news reporters on Friday. “Everything points to the fact that this is a terrorist attack.”

This is the second time this week the Eiffel Tower has shut off its lights to show respect and solidarity with a country reeling from tragedy. The tower went dark Tuesday in response to an explosion that killed 14 people and injured 50 others in a subway in St. Petersburg, Russia.

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo called Friday for the Eiffel Tower’s lights to be switched off earlier than scheduled.

“Horror struck Sweden at its heart today,” Hidalgo tweeted. “All my sympathy goes to the victims and their families.”

The Eiffel Tower’s lights are typically turned off every night at 1 a.m., according to the tower’s website. But sometimes the lights are shut down earlier in recognition of a terrorist attack or to raise awareness of various issues. 

When a terrorist rammed pedestrians with his vehicle and stabbed a guard in London last month, Paris shut off the Eiffel Tower’s lights at midnight in honor of those killed. The lights were turned off at 8 p.m. Dec. 14 to call attention to the humanitarian crisis in Syria and in 2015 to mourn the victims of the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris.

PEOPLE Pet Vet Dr. Evan Antin Goes Wild in Sexy Photo Shoot

Yes, we called him the Sexiest Veterinarian in 2016, but Dr. Evan Antin basically threw his hat into the ring for Sexiest Man Alive contention this week with a steamy animal-themed photo shoot for Basic magazine.

In two pics Antin — a veterinarian at California’s Conejo Valley Veterinary Hospital — shared on Instagram, he’s holding exotic animals (his favorite) while showing off his toned biceps. But he’s turning the pictures into teaching moments, too, educating swooning Instagram followers about his creature costars.

“I love discussing my profession but broaching the subject of wildlife conservation is so important and I’m grateful for getting the opportunity to speak on it,” the 31-year-old writes alongside a photo of himself with a large monitor lizard.

On a second pic, in which he’s wrapped in a reticulated python, he drops knowledge about the animals’ size, eating habits and senses.

In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Antin dished on his love of exotic animals, and the lengths he goes to find them. His latest trip was to the Philippines, where he visited a rescue organization that breeds Philippine freshwater crocodiles, among the most endangered in the world. In the past, he’s done dental work on primates in Indonesia, wrangled lizards in Botswana and watched the echidnas (spiny anteaters) of Australia. “If it has good wildlife, maybe a jungle, cool people and neat history, I’m there,” he says.

GOP Posts Fake Lincoln Quote, Twitter Appropriately Goes Nuts

If we’ve learned one thing so far this year, it’s that not everything you see on the internet is true.

The Republican National Committee celebrated what would have been President Abraham Lincoln’s 208th birthday on Sunday by gifting him with a quote that he likely never said.

The GOP shared a photo of the Lincoln Memorial on Twitter, and accompanied it with a quote attributed to the 16th president: “And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.”

Problem is, there’s no evidence that Lincoln ever used that expression, according to Quote Investigator.

The site, which is run by quote sleuth Garson O’Toole, says the line was probably first used in the 1940s to advertise a book on aging by Dr. Edward J. Stieglitz.

“The important thing to you is not how many years in your life, but how much life in your years!” the ad read.

Adlai Stevenson II, a former governor of Illinois and Democratic presidential nominee, reportedly used a similar version of the quote in speeches a few years later. 

Twitter users were quick to point out this gaffe, as well as suggest some other lines Lincoln could have said — but we can all but guarantee he didn’t.

Kim Goes Off After Kourtney and Khloe Make Her Trainer Run Late: ‘This Is So Rude’

The Kardashian sisters are having a difficult time keeping up with each other’s schedules.

On Saturday, time management problems caused a light-hearted social media rift between Kim Kardashian West and her sisters Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian. Kardashian West shared several Snapchat videos to express her discontent with her sisters, who started their training session 30 minutes late, which led to the trainer being late for Kardashian West’s session.

“So me and my friend Nikki are waiting for Joe to get here because my sisters’ workout ran 30 minutes late,” she said. “Thanks a——-.”

The 36-year-old star got even more frustrated and put the snow bunny Snapchat filter to send this message: “Okay, seriously, Kourtney and Khloe: f— you. This is so rude. I have been sitting in my garage waiting for the trainer for 30 minutes. I do have a life.”

When Joe the trainer finally made his appearance, Kardashian West’s snark continued.

“Oh look who decided to show up!” she said. “Look who decided to show up. Who was late? … Tell me, Joe. Who was late?”

Joe finally admitted the culprit of her sisters’ tardy workout session: Kourtney.

“Oh, Kourtney. Okay,” Kardashian West said, before continuing her Snapchat story with her workout.

RELATED VIDEO: Kim Kardashian Reveals Her Bikini Body

And the other half of the story? Let’s refer to fitness buff Khloé’s Snapchat. While Kardashian West not-so-patiently waiting for her training time, Khloé called out her older sister.

“The queen of being late for workouts,” Khloé, 32, announced, panning her camera to her 37-year-old sister. “Our workout started 30 minutes ago.”

“You’ve been hanging out with me in the kitchen!” Kourtney said in the clip, defending herself.

“I’ve been waiting for you!” Khloé retorted.

By Sunday afternoon, it appeared as though everyone got in their workout and moved on with their day. Kim hung out with her son Saint West and Khloé enjoyed a protein shake.

Bella Thorne Goes Topless on Instagram: ‘I Love When You Smile Baby’

Bella Thorne recently said goodbye to her red hair — but is she also bidding farewell to shirts?

The actress, 19, shared a photo of herself wearing nothing but a few necklaces, bracelets and rings on Thursday. Donning her new midnight blue hair, the star had red lipstick and sparkly eyeshadow on as well.

“I love when you smile baby #vintage #grain #tbt to the other day;),” she captioned her Instagram post. 

But the style chameleon is not totally over her old redhead look.

“Missing these red vibes #friyay #redhead #TGIT,” she captioned a selfie showing her red-hued hair color on Friday. 

Earlier this month, Thorne debuted greenish-blue hair and talked to PEOPLE about her always-changing look.

“It feels good and I always love funky hair colors. I always wanted blue hair, I wanted green hair, purple hair, so it’s just fun to do,” she said. “I dyed it blue, just because I felt like it. My sister dyed hers pink and we just like doing it to be matching and coordinated. It was just fun. Her boyfriend did his color too. It was cool.”

RELATED VIDEO: Exclusive! Bella Thorne Makes Her Playboy Debut with a Tribute to David Bowie

The star, who previously told PEOPLE she’s a natural blonde, temporary switched back to blond for a film, Shovel Buddies, last year — and she was eager to return to her old shade.

“I’m not completely digging the blond, to be honest,” she said. “But once I get in the sun and I get a little more of a tan, I think it’ll look better. I think I’m just going to keep it for summer … And then for winter, I’m going to go back to my red, my luscious red.”

Ivanka Trump Goes Public About Exiting Fashion Label, Trump Organization

IVANKA ALL ABOUT D.C.: Hours after her father lambasted American intelligence agencies and squared off with the media alleging “fake news” Wednesday, Ivanka Trump has set the record straight about her post-inaugural plans. Although she is taking leaves of absence from the Trump Organization and her signature fashion brand, she is keeping the door open about what will be “the most impactful and appropriate ways for me to serve our country.”
In a Facebook post on her personal page, the entrepreneurial mother-of-three said she will take a formal leave of absence from the Trump Organization and her apparel and accessories brand once her father is sworn in as the 45th U.S. president. “I will no longer be involved with the management or operations of either company,” she wrote.
As expected, Trump has tapped Abigail Klem, the president of the company she started in 2007, to lead the brand during her absence from the New York scene. In that capacity, Klem, a lawyer-turned-fashion-executive, will work with a board of trustees to manage the strategic and day-to-day operations of the business. It could not be determined Wednesday afternoon when the board will be installed or who will be on it. Initially started as a

A South Carolina mom’s viral Facebook post is demonstrating the power of empathy when it comes to kids with special needs.

On Dec. 29, Jennifer McCafferty posted a photo that shows her 4-year-old son Isaiah having his hair cut while sitting on the floor of a Sport Clips salon in Charleston. In the caption, the mom explained that Isaiah has autism, so this hairstylist’s kindness meant a great deal to their family. 

“This woman, Kaylen, … did more for my heart than she will probably ever realize,” McCafferty wrote. “Haircuts with Isaiah are no small feat. He hates having anything near his ears, the sound of clippers sends him in to a tailspin.”

McCafferty explained that this particular evening at the salon was consistent with their past difficult experiences. “I was ready to give up, but she wasn’t,” she said. “She sat on the floor with my baby in her lap, and she cut his hair. They talked about Dory and Christmas, and she even let him spray her with her water bottle.”

Concluding her post, the mom shared a message on behalf of her family and others facing similar challenges. “Autism can be so very, very hard, but people like this make our days just a little easier,” she wrote. 

McCafferty’s post received nearly 95,000 likes and the Love What Matters Facebook page shared her story. The comments sections on both posts are filled with responses from fellow parents of kids with autism. 

McCafferty told The Huffington Post that Kaylen was a real lifesaver that day at the salon. When Isaiah had a meltdown, she went above and beyond to help him find “his quiet, safe space” in the midst of the overwhelming sensory stimulation.

“She wasn’t fazed by his screams; she understood his fears,” McCafferty recalled. “She figured out where it was he needed to go, which just so happened to be the floor, and she took him there.”

The mom said Isaiah has a “beautiful soul” and a warm heart. “He is everything that you would want your child to be,” she said. “He’s fun and full of energy. He’s sweet and kind, and ridiculously funny. He loves with everything he has.”

Isaiah’s love is especially boundless when it comes to his 6-year-old brother, Alex. “They have an amazing bond, and I credit Alex for a lot of the progress Isaiah has made with his social interactions,” McCafferty said. “Alex is able to comfort Isaiah when the rest of us can’t, and always seems to know just what Isaiah needs to soothe him.”

McCafferty told HuffPost she hopes Isaiah’s haircut story will bring hope to other parents of kids with special needs. “I want them to realize that even though it can feel like it, they are not alone,” she said. “I want everyone to see just how much love and kindness matter.”

#TrumpNarratesPlanetEarth Goes Pretty Much The Way You’d Expect

President-elect Donald Trump has already begun selecting a transition team to help his move into the White House. And would you believe that some of his choices seem less than reasonable?

Most dubious is his pick to lead the transition for the EPA, Myron Ebell, a climate change skeptic. So with our own planet in mind, HuffPost Comedy and the internet parodied the outstanding nature series “Planet Earth” with  #TrumpNarratesPlanetEarth.

Great Art Goes “Off the Wall” At the Gardner… But Not for Long

Love art? Then run, don’t walk to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum by August 28. The artistic equivalent of Haley’s Comet is on view, and like the great comet, once it’s gone, it’s not coming back anytime soon.

Isabella Stewart Gardner inherited a large fortune in the late nineteenth century, which she used in order to create a collection of fine art virtually unsurpassed in the world.

Not only was she the first American to acquire a Raphael, a Botticelli, a Titian, a Fra Angelico, and many great artists, she built herself an Italian palazzo in Boston’s Fenway neighborhood, in which to house all of it.

Gardner specified in her will that every single work of art–and there are thousands–must be kept in the precise place she chose in her museum, for all time.

This poses an enormous challenge to art conservators, who must protect works of art from the ravages of time, light and visitors.

In the event that the museum permanently moves any of the works, Gardner’s will specifies that all of the artwork in the museum, and I mean, all of it, must be crated up, shipped to Paris, and sold at auction, with the proceeds to benefit Harvard University.

(Moving a piece temporarily for conservation purposes or loaning it to another museum doesn’t trigger the clause, however.)

The Trustees and staff of the Gardner take the will’s instructions seriously, which means that most of the time, it’s hard to get a close-up view of some of these fabulous works.
But this year, everything is different.

Because of repairs to the Museum’s second floor, the Gardner curators had the freedom to combine 25 of some of their greatest works in their collection into two galleries–well lit, without any furniture in the way, for maximum viewing pleasure.

The biggest challenge museumgoers might have is elbowing the curators themselves out of the way, so giddy are they with the opportunity to notice details in the works that have hitherto remained hidden.

You’re greeted by a Rembrandt self-portrait, one of the first major pieces that Gardner purchased, with the advice of her advisor, the famed art critic Bernard Berenson. (A Vermeer, since stolen was the first major masterpiece she bought; its absence is acknowledged at the beginning of the exhibition).

Up close, you can see luminosity of the young painter’s eyes, the softness of his hair and the unique shade of blue in the part of his cap that is upturned.

In a 14th century Fra Angelico painting of Mary’s ascension to heaven, you can see the beatific faces of the angels, which are too small to notice at a greater distance.
In every single painting, you can linger over details that you could not have seen were the paintings displayed in their traditional places.

The exhibit is called “Off the Wall,” which refers not to some act of curatorial madness but instead to the freedom that the Gardner staff revel in, allowing these paintings to depart their normal surroundings for this most exhilarating exhibition.

The Gardner staff and President of the Board wanted to be absolutely, belt-and-suspenders certain that the exhibition would not trigger the pack it up to Paris clause. They actually requested permission from the Massachusetts Attorney General’s office to move the works temporarily for preservation purposes without violating the will’s terms.

Incidentally, Isabella Stewart Gardner was a huge Red Sox fan in addition to being one of the finest art collectors in American history. If you wear anything with Red Sox insignia, you get a discount on your admission.

But even if you root for the Yankees, the Dodgers, or no team at all, make your way to the Gardner before August 28, 2016. Like Haley’s Comet, this exhibition is a once in a lifetime experience.

Off the Wall: Gardner and Her Masterpieces, until March 28, 2016. For more information, http://www.gardnermuseum.org/.

Oh Yes She Did: Kylie Jenner Goes for Full-on Rainbow Hair for Her Second Day at Coachella

Oops … she did it again.

Kylie Jenner once again changed up her hair color while hanging out at the Coachella music festival in Indio, California, on Saturday.

The 18-year-old beauty mogul had previously debuted a long, peach wig while partying at the festival on Friday with sister Kendall Jenner and Scott Disick, but she decided to take things to a whole other colorful level when she went for a rainbow look on Saturday.

“Rainbow braids,” Jenner captioned a photo of her new locks, which faded from pink to blue to green to yellow and were tied up in long French braids. The reality star topped off the look with a bedazzled Discount Universe bikini and open jean cut-offs.

Instagram Photo

Jenner has been very open about her love of changing up her hair — usually thanks to expertly crafted wigs. She’s previously rocked wigs in turquoise, blonde and navy blue (among many other shades).

Instagram Photo

As she explained last year, her love of mixing things up all started when she was 16, when she dyed her hair without mom Kris Jenner’s permission.

[wpbrightcvoe bcid=”4199252082001″]

“After that, I’ve just had this addiction to changing my hair. It makes me feel like a new person,” Kylie wrote in September. “I love feeling different and I love leaving the house knowing that nobody has ever seen me this way.”

Diane von Furstenberg’s Autobiography Goes German in Berlin and Hamburg

BERLIN — Make it three for three: Diane von Furstenburg was on a three-day hop in Germany late last week to present “Die Frau, die ich sein wollte,” the third language version of her autobiography, which is now available in English, Italian and German. Chinese and French translations of “The Woman I Wanted to Be” are planned for the end of 2016. “We still have to sell it to Spain and Japan,” the designer said during a visit to Berlin’s  department store KaDeWe Thursday.
The tour started Wednesday evening with a reading and book signing at the Autorenbuchhandlung, or Author’s Book Shop under the S-Bahn arches of Berlin Savignyplatz. It was packed event, “and I even saw old friends — like Veruschka [von Lehndorff],” von Furstenberg remarked, smiling.
Another friend, David Chipperfield, filled in the Thursday night slot with a dinner for the designer at his Berlin home, and after Friday’s book signing at the new Unger concept store Uzwei in Hamburg, von Furstenberg was having dinner with Jil Sander, “who I haven’t seen in maybe  25 years so I e-mailed her.”
DVF has been part of the Unger assortment since 2002, and while the business started with a modest corner several years

Breitling Goes the Smartwatch Route

Breitling, the Swiss watchmaker best known for its chunky aviator timepieces, will soon unveil its first commercial smartwatch, as the race to respond to the Apple Watch heats up. Family owned-Breitling, one of the few remaining Swiss watch brands not to be part of a major international luxury goods group, will launch its new Exospace model in New York City on Dec. 16. That will be a little more than a month after rival sports watchmaker Tag Heuer, part of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, also chooses the Big Apple for its long-awaited smartwatch premiere.

The choice of location was purely coincidental, Jean-Paul Girardin, Breitling’s vice president, said. A Breitling employee since 1992, and de facto chief executive officer of the group, owned by the media-shy Schneider family, since 1999, Girardin revealed the name and timing at a watch media lunch on Wednesday.
The new model is based on the B55 Connect prototype first seen at this year’s Basel World watch show in late March. Although development and production had progressed quickly after the positive initial public reactions, Girardin said the first models would probably only be available in most markets in early January. Breitling declined to give any precise pricing for its

Kendall Jenner Goes Braless In Sheer Shirt

Throughout her time at Paris Fashion Week, Kendall Jenner has proven that she likes to keep things sheer.

The supermodel was seen wearing yet another see-through item of clothing for Shiatzy Chen’s runway show on Tuesday. Jenner went braless under a sheer pink shirt with delicate floral designs, paired with a metallic silver skirt and matching, lace-up shoes.  

The 19-year-old hasn’t been shy about showing off her nipple ring, which she says she got during a ”rough time.”

“Honestly, it hurt, but wasn’t as bad as everyone made it seem, and maybe because everyone hyped it up and I thought it would be really, really bad,” she told the New York Post. “Then it wasn’t as bad as I expected.”

Kim Kardashian Goes Topless For Sultry Magazine Cover Shoot

She may not have always been comfortable posing in the nude, but these days, Kim Kardashian is confident in her birthday suit. 

The 34-year-old took to Instagram Thursday afternoon to share a few new sultry photos from her September cover shoot with C magazine. In the black and white images, the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star covers her chest with her forearm as she looks off into the distance. Her brunette locks are slicked back and she’s sporting smoky eye makeup. 

Inside the issue, the expectant mother of one talks about balancing her many business ventures and being a parent. 

“If I’m working on an individual project, like my fragrance, I will only work on it if I’m 100 percent passionate about it, because that takes me away from my family,” she said. “I base my whole schedule around my daughter and my husband — that’s how life is now.” 

The reality star added that motherhood “taught me how to prioritize. And I was forced to take a break for awhile. I never liked downtime, but I decided I enjoy it — that’s when the fun ideas come about.”

Mental Health Monitoring Goes Mobile

2015-02-04-Joni_Blecher_150x150.jpgBy Joni Blecher
Joni Blecher is a freelance writer who has spent her career covering tech and a myriad of lifestyle topics. When she’s not writing, you can find her exploring the food scene in Portland, Oregon.

There are countless devices you can strap to your body that will monitor your physical activity, track your vitals, even tell you to stop slouching. You may have also heard about a competition to develop a Star Trek-inspired medical tricorder capable of diagnosing more than a dozen medical conditions and capturing five vital signs. Yet in a nation increasingly obsessed with counting steps taken, calories burned, and minutes spent sitting or sleeping, mental health issues remain largely taboo — even though nearly 20 percent of adults in the U.S. are affected by some form of mental illness.

But what if there was a device you could carry around every day that could help you discreetly monitor and manage things like insomnia, PTSD, depression, anxiety and bipolar disorders, or schizophrenia?

There is. It’s your phone.

2015-05-16-1431735916-8506732-WhatsMyM3_300x466.jpg

WhatsMyM3

Ever wondered if you’re clinically depressed or just having a bad day? There’s a diagnostic test that will let you know if it’s time to call a therapist, or go get a bowl of ice cream. Just download the M3 mood screen test to your phone to find out.

Created by a group of mental health doctors, professors and therapists, WhatsMyM3 is a basic app that includes mental health resources, a history of test results, and a set of 29 questions to help rate your mood and anxiety symptoms. At the end of the questionnaire, you get a score that provides you an analysis of your risk for depression, anxiety and bipolar disorders, and PTSD. You can print, email or allow a health care professional to access your results online.

Be aware that your M3 score is not a diagnosis (only a medical professional can provide that), but it can help you decide if it’s time seek professional help.

CBT-i

The U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs recently launched a mobile app store geared toward veterans and VA care teams. The apps on the site are free, but some require a special login as they are linked to a patient’s VA Electronic Health Record. There are many apps that are designed to help users deal with medical issues such as concussions, PTSD, weight management, and more.

One of the apps on the site is the CBT-i Coach, which is designed to help with insomnia. Based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia in Veterans, the app was developed by VA’s National Center for PTSD, Stanford School of Medicine, and Department of Defense’s National Center for Telehealth and Technology. The free app (available for iOS and Android) includes guided meditation, a sleep diary, relaxation exercises, and tools to help create new sleep habits.

While the app isn’t just for veterans, CBT-i should be used in conjunction with a CBT in-person therapy program, and not as a standalone tool to cure your insomnia.

2015-05-16-1431736004-9290818-ginger.io_300X466.jpg

Ginger.io

What began as a thesis at MIT Media Lab to find out if your phone could detect when you’re not feeling well became an app that will alert a doctor when a patient isn’t doing well. That’s the idea behind Ginger.io. Initially, the app was designed to help with depression and behavioral health issues (anxiety, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia), but it’s also in trials to help with heart disease and chronic pain.

Once installed on your phone, the app works behind the scenes to gather information about where you go, your call data, text message patterns, and even motion data from the accelerometer. When significant deviations occur, an alert is sent to you and your care provider, who can then decide if treatment is needed. While the app is available for iOS and Android devices, only a health care provider or professional can activate it.

Ginger.io provides a way to get ahead of issues before they escalate, and it can alert your doctor to things you might forget to mention or think are irrelevant.

Using apps to monitor something as sensitive as mental health of course raises questions about legitimacy and security. Before downloading any app, it’s important to know its source, its developers (health care professionals or someone else), and how it uses the data it collects. Much of this information can be found on the iTunes and Google Play app listing page and at the developer’s website.

Another question is accuracy: what if you try to “cheat” the questions to mask your symptoms, or your phone is lost or stolen? That’s where a doctor of therapist comes in. The data these apps collect can certainly help fill in gaps, but they don’t provide a complete picture.

The change comes for the upcoming “X-Men: Apocalypse,” a prequel that features young versions of Storm, Cyclops, Jean Grey and Nightcrawler.

The Empire State Building Goes Green For HuffPost’s 10th Birthday

The Huffington Post is celebrating 10 years in style.

On Thursday night, New York City’s iconic Empire State Building turned its lights “HuffPost green” in honor of The Huffington Post’s 10th birthday.

HuffPost’s co-founder and Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington did the ceremonial honors by pulling the light switch, turning the building green for the night.

The Empire State Building is one of the most-photographed buildings in the world, but you’ve probably never seen it like this. Getting up close and personal with the (temporarily) green giant takes going into a helicopter. It’s even more majestic from above:

Bradley Cooper Goes Nude For W Magazine

Bradley Cooper stripped down and posed nude for a special issue of W Magazine.

The star is one of 39 actors and actresses profiled in the Movie Issue of the fashion magazine, which is focused on celebrating this year’s best performances. In the portrait, Cooper appears naked, holding a pair of white pants over his bare legs and a matching jacket over his shoulder.

The 40-year-old star is featured for his role in “American Sniper,” playing Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle.

“I had advantages in making a film about the Iraq war,” Cooper told W. “
On USO tours, I went to bases in the middle of nowhere in enemy territory. I was with the soldiers in their barracks, and I really got a sense of it. And, oddly, I had experience from having starred in ‘The A-Team.’ I learned how 
to shoot guns for that film. After making it, an M-4 
felt as comfortable to me as 
a tennis racquet.”

‘The 100’ Goes Dark In A Good Way: Season 2 Secrets From The CW Show’s Creator

“I didn’t see that coming.”

I said that to myself more than once during the first three episodes of “The 100,” which returns Wednesday on The CW.

The good news is, those shocks weren’t gratuitous or unsatisfying, and they weren’t merely there to shine a light on whatever wild plot turn had arisen in this brisk tale of post-apocalyptic survival.

No, what surprised me was how dark “The 100” was willing to go.

You’d have thought I learned my lesson during the show’s energetic first season, when “The 100” regularly transgressed whatever I thought of as “the rules” of The CW.

Everyone is quite attractive on “The 100” — some rules can never be broken — but that appears to be the only inviolate law of the network, which currently airs a large number of shows I just cannot quit (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supernatural,” “Jane the Virgin“).

It isn’t just about the abs on these programs; it’s about the aspiration. Through all of their ups and downs (and there have been many peaks and valleys on “Supernatural,” which is about to air its 200th episode), these shows present characters, relationships and moral dilemmas that hold my interest week to week. That’s more than I can say for approximately 87 percent of the tepid new broadcast network dramas that have turned up in the last few fall seasons.

You could almost say that The CW is broadcast-network television’s boutique cable brand: The stakes are lower and it’s able to take more chances, and in recent years, its smarter gambits have paid off. While the bigger, richer broadcast networks turn increasingly toward bland formulas, “noisy” concepts and ill-advised star vehicles, The CW has quietly stuck to its knitting, churning out solid and enjoyable shows that end up giving me me more hope about humanity than an assorted six pack of network crime procedurals.

“The 100” is by far the network’s darkest show, but this addictive drama doesn’t forget to supply the adventure element as well. (“The 100” does for running through forests what “Doctor Who” does for sprinting down spaceship corridors.) It doesn’t have the bucks of bigger networks, so it has, of late, focused on smart casting and fresh, energized takes on familiar forms.

So, as you might have guessed, I am not here to make a claim for the innate originality of “The 100.” Like a crash survivor cannibalizing his or her ship, “The 100” takes components from the standard Y.A. and sci-fi toolkits and assembles them into a sturdy, efficient narrative. But like Syfy’s “Defiance” — another pulpy, enjoyable serial that unashamedly deploys its share of sci-fi and Western tropes and has a number of game, charismatic actors at its core — “The 100” doesn’t look away from the deeper questions embedded in its narrative.

“The 100” — a figure that originally described the number of teen survivors plunked down a century after Earth’s nuclear apocalypse — continues to tell the story of several factions of adults and teens trying to stay alive under desperate circumstances. Hence the occasional harshness and even extreme brutality on display, but this is no surprise to those who witnessed the torture and murders that occurred in Season 1. The good news is, this show truly embraces the characters’ impossible moral dilemmas without ever lapsing into lazy cynicism or predictable despair, and extreme actions are given the moral weight they’re due.

Though Earth is now habitable, more or less, if some are going to live, then others have to die, and these characters ask themselves who and what is worth dying for without bogging down the narrative with overdoses of morose self-pity. Sure, the drama has some convenient twists and a few believability-stretching moments, but I’m willing to give “The 100” the benefit of the doubt because its cast is used well, its pacing is crisp and it’s more morally adventurous than a lot of shows with far greater resources.

The survival game has changed this season: More adults have arrived on the scene and they have their own ideas about how to impose “order” on the young people — and others — who are roaming the surprisingly picturesque post-apocalyptic territories. The grown-ups often think they know best, but more often than not, Clarke Griffin (Eliza Taylor) is not having any of it.

Taylor is admirably committed to conveying Clarke’s unbreakable will, which sometimes comes off as almost unreasonable stubbornness. But Clarke’s skepticism about her new situation ends up being understandable, and her resistance is one of the most attractive elements of “The 100.” These kids have a chance to literally remake the world, and Clarke and her cohorts Bellamy (Bob Morley), Finn (Thomas McDonell), Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos) and Raven (Lindsey Morgan) do not want to re-make their parents’ mistakes.

It’s fairly bold of “The 100” to take a narrative that’s relatively similar to “The Walking Dead” and put a teen girl at the center of it (and as is the case with “The Good Wife,” The CW show would actually support a reading of it as a critique of the differences between male and female leadership styles). As Alyssa Rosenberg has pointed out, even on prestige dramas, young women often “function as built-in critics of the behavior of the adults.” Though Eliza is clearly at the center of this story, many of the younger characters on “The 100” are turning into credible leaders. As Bellamy, Bob Morley has been a terrific asset to the show since it began, and through sheer force of will, Bellamy’s sister Octavia has become one of my favorite TV badasses. There’s a Season 2 scene in which Octavia overpowers a much larger character and the moment should have been preposterous, but Avgeropoulos sold the hell out of it.

There’s a lot for the young folk to critique on “The 100,” but there are not many cartoonish villains to be found (and the show makes good use of skilled adult actors like Paige Turco and Raymond J. Barry). On lesser dramas, hiring a parade of “Battlestar Galactica” actors might bring up uncomfortable questions about what a show is lacking, but on “The 100,” the presence of “BSG” alums drive home the central parallel between that great show and this more modest yet very enjoyable one.

As Adama and Roslin taught us, those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

HuffPost TV spoke to “The 100” executive producer Jason Rothenberg about what fans can expect from the second season. I don’t consider what’s below to be particularly spoiler-y. There are hints about what’s coming, but trust me, you won’t see a lot of it coming.

Last time we talked, you couldn’t tell me how many episodes would be in Season 2, but now we know it’s 16. How do you feel about that number?

I love that number. Thirteen was hard to do. Sixteen is going to be harder because it’s just the sheer number [of episodes in total]. I don’t know how people do 22 episodes and make them good. In a serialized adventure like this, that’s too much. You can’t have every episode be good. At some point, the most important part of my job is quality control. Last year, we were able to do what I think was a very strong 13-episode season. This year, we’re going to do a little more, but it’s not so much more that it’s going to kill me and make it so that [the attitude would be], “Eh, that’s good enough.”

When we talked before [before and after the Season 1 finale], you said you wanted to get into more character moments and the characters’ pasts, so I would think more episodes would give you time to do that. I also think about the fact that you have so many groups and factions now — you just probably need more room for that.

“I wouldn’t say it’s a new show, but it’s very different.”Yeah, so far a lot story time in the first couple of episodes has been taken up with that. We’re almost re-establishing what the show is. I wouldn’t say it’s a new show, but it’s very different. We’re establishing new sets. Usually, in a Season 2, you go back to your same locations and same sets. This is totally new. We’ve got no Ark, for the most part. We’ve got Mount Weather, which we spent a ton of money on and it’s amazing. We’re going to live there for quite a bit of story. That’s a new world. And that’s really hard on production, by the way. You don’t have the time or the money that you have with a pilot.

On top of that, you are shooting outside a lot, and the weather around Vancouver can be so rainy and unpredictable.

It’s great, though. I’m in my nice office in Santa Monica, so I can’t really complain, but the worse the weather is, the better the show tends to look.

Is there a dividing line in the season — like, a first bunch and then the show comes back in the new year and airs a bunch more?

The good thing about last year was that we did 13 episodes in a row. This year, we’re on in the fall, so unfortunately there are some natural breaks for Thanksgiving and Christmas. But in the [writers’] room, we break stories so there’s a big [episode] right before the first break and a big one right before the second break. The bigger episodes will unfold like that. And then I think we run through eight in a row at the end. There’s a huge [development in] Episode 5. And there’s a story point [later in the season] that’s going to really blow people’s minds.

Given where everyone’s starting in Season 2, it sounds like there will be a lot of new recurring characters.

Yes, there will be new people who will be with us for a while. The fun thing is, we’re building out all these universes — Mount Weather, the camp where the Ark fell — that’s our main ground set this year. It’s unbelievable how big the ship is. We built the drop ship last year, but this is a section of the Ark. It’s huge.

The thing that Abby and Kane climbed out of at the end of Season 2 — that’s a different section. It broke apart and they were looking for other survivors, and they came across this section that is more intact. Over the season, that [large section of the Ark on the ground] becomes like “Deadwood” with a space ship in the middle of it. It’s like a Western town. They build a bar and a hospital and all of that.

What’s been the most fun about the second season so far?

There are so many new people on the ground, so we get to have scenes with actors who have never worked together. There are some really big reunions coming up.

I’m sure you can’t say when it will be, but the Abby-Clarke reunion will be a big deal.

That’ll be a really long-awaited moment for them and for the audience too. It’s going to be crazy because she’s so different now. They’re both very different from those two women who last saw each other in the teaser of the pilot episode. We did a flashback of them together in Episode 3 [in the first season], but [actors Paige Turco, who plays Clarke’s mother, Abby, and Eliza Taylor] have not worked together since then.

Obviously the show has a very active online community and you interact with them a lot. Do you ever think, “What will the fans think?” when you’re laying out where the show will go?

I’ve never been influenced by anyone saying [what they want]. If [a fan idea] is a great idea, I would do it, but I’m not going to take the pulse of the audience before I do anything. You’ve got to surprise people.

I will assume you know that people are really into Linctavia.

That’s a relationship with that actually has some real weight in the show, because it’s about different cultures. The whole thing this season is about turning people’s views on the Grounders. The Grounders are actually not the monolithic bad guys. When I say the season is about reunions, it’s also about unions. Groups that hate each other and are at war with each other need to make alliances in order to defeat the bigger bad that may be out there.

I wanted to ask a couple of those before I let you go. Here’s one: Where did Lincoln get his tattoos?

The Grounders actually tattoo themselves. It’s sort of based on Native American culture [and many] ancient cultures — tattooing is a really old art form. They’re all hand done. One tattoo that actually isn’t a tattoo is — they mark themselves for every kill. They burn a little bump into their backs. Lincoln has that field of bumps on his back. And they could tell you [who each person was]. It’s a way not to sort of glamorize the kill but to memorialize the person that died.

We’re going to meet a character this year named Indra who’s a very high-ranking Grounder who’s got [a lot of them]. They don’t fit on her back, they spill down her arm.

Will we learn Lincoln’s last name?

No. I don’t know if he has a last name, honestly. I think if they have last names, it’s more like, “Of the Woods.” It’s more a geographic designation.

“The 100” airs Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. ET on The CW, and the first season of the show arrives Wednesday on Netflix.

Primus Goes All ‘Willy Wonka’ To Give Fans A Chance To Win Tickets For Life

Primus is bringing all your “Willy Wonka” dreams to life.

The band, which is known for their insane cover of “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” and creating the original “South Park” theme, has a new LP dropping Tuesday, Oct. 21, and to celebrate they’re giving fans a chance to win tickets for life, according to Rolling Stone.

Instead of golden tickets, fans will be given the chance to find golden vinyl records mixed in with the “Primus and the Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble” albums. You can see the chocolate-colored records being made in the band’s “Willy Wonka”-style video above.

The album marks the first time since 1995 that the band’s original lineup has put out an LP together. For those who can’t wait for Tuesday, The New York Times has a streamable version available now.

The chance to win free tickets for life is pretty incredible, but to keep things in perspective Primus fans should really do their best to remember the words of Willy Wonka: “Don’t forget what happened to the man who suddenly got everything he always wanted. He lived happily ever after.”

Groom Goes All 1849 And Pans For Gold To Create Wedding Bands

Scottish groom John Greenwood has set his own kind of gold standard for wedding rings.

Instead of visiting his local jeweler like most guys, Greenwood, an explosives technician, spent 18 months panning for gold in the Scottish mountains to make wedding bands for bride Morag Shearer and himself in time for their September 25 nuptials in Antigua. He used just a simple gold pan, trowel, shovel and rake to collect the tiny nuggets and specks.

“They talk about gold fever,” he said. “I was panning for gold in my dreams. I was driven by it. I reckon I spent 20 full days getting enough gold for the ring.”

Over the course of a year and a half, he found about 70 grams of gold, which he then gave to goldsmith Grant Logan to create the two rings. According to Logan, that is a lot more than most people in Scotland are able to find in a lifetime.

“Everybody says I must have beginner’s luck. I’ve always been interested in the idea of gold panning but I never actually did it until 18 months ago,” John said.

The approximately 22-carat rings are considered “Scottish gold,” which is a rare type and one that is not commercially available.

“I feel very proud of John and very lucky,” the bride said of her hubby’s efforts.

In 2011, Greenwood also spent three months panning for gold to create an engagement ring for Shearer.

“I’ve been incredibly lucky to find so much gold to make a ring but I was out there every weekend and in the evenings before it got dark in freezing cold water. I certainly put a lot of effort in,” he said at the time. “Some days I’d be camping next to the river and I’d start as soon as the sun was up and carry on for 14 or 15 hours a day.”

We’re just so glad it panned out for these two.

ℓ Goes to Plus Infinity

ℓ Goes to Plus Infinity


Many physical problems are meaningfully formulated in a cylindrical domain. When the size of the cylinder goes to infinity, the solutions, under certain symmetry conditions, are expected to be identical in every cross-section of the domain. The proof of this, however, is sometimes difficult and almost never given in the literature. The present book partially fills this gap by providing proofs of the asymptotic behaviour of solutions to various important cases of linear and nonlinear problems in the theory of elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations.The book is a valuable resource for graduates and researchers in applied mathematics and for engineers. Many results presented here are original and have not been published elsewhere. They will motivate and enable the reader to apply the theory to other problems in partial differential equations.

Rob Reiner on the Middle-Age Love Story ‘And So It Goes’

Rob Reiner says his new movie was inspired by Jack Nicholson. When they were talking to the press about their film, The Bucket List, Nicholson was asked what he wanted to be sure he did before he died. He said he wanted one more great love in his life. Reiner went to As Good as it Gets screenwriter Mark Andrus to write a story about a couple with a chance for one last great romance. That film is And So it Goes, with Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton. He plays an irascible realtor who has alienated just about everyone he knows. She plays a singer who is still mourning her late husband.

In an interview, Reiner said that there are only three kinds of films that get financed by Hollywood studios these days:

… big superhero tent-pole franchise movies, animated films and R-rated raunchy comedies. There’s not one film that I’ve ever made that could get made today by a studio, not one, even A Few Good Men because it’s an adult courtroom drama and studios do not make them any more. And so every movie that I make, have made and will make is always going be independently financed. And the reason they don’t make movies for adults and for people which are the largest bulge of the population is because they are not usually going to the movie the first weekend. They take a while to learn about it, probably word of mouth. It takes a lot of money to release a picture. They want to get the money right away and so they want to make blockbuster-type movies. But there is a lot of money to be made if you give that audience something that they want to see and hopefully with Diane Keaton and Michael Douglas the first time they’ve ever been together, they’ll be interested to see that.

The last time Reiner directed Michael Douglas, he was playing a close-to-perfect character in The American President. This time his character, Oren Little, is a bitter man who wants nothing to do with anyone, including his son and granddaughter. Reiner keeps the audience on Oren’s side by showing us “the evolution which happens in the character as he progresses through the film.”

Here’s a guy who may have had this rough side to begin with but it is exacerbated by the fact that his son had drug problems and he’s been estranged from his son. His wife passed away and he’s basically ready to check out and get out of there. He meets this woman who lives next door in this fourplex and finds out that he has a 10-year-old granddaughter that he didn’t even know he had. It’s through the relationship with them that a softer side of him starts to come out and I think you then ultimately come to like him. But it takes a while.

Reiner described the estrangement between Oren and his son.

Oren’s a lot of bigger-than-life kind of character. He talks about how he has the biggest real estate deals and he has his face on the bus bench. And I think for kids sometimes growing up if your father has a larger-than-life character you can feel diminished. And if you are person who is shy and doesn’t have an outgoing personality you can feel like you’re a failure or like you don’t live up to him, and so I think there was an insecurity with that young guy and he started using drugs as a way to feel better. And then he got into a bad place and maybe the father wasn’t as available as he might have been in those early years. I think of that generation, when the parents were more hooked into each other than they were to the children. I think that in our generation we dote on our children more than our parents did to us.

Both of the lead characters are struggling with grief and loss. But the contrast between their responses is one of the ways we learn about the different ways they approach life and relationships.

I think you have two people that have shut down a part of themselves because of loss. She is trying to reconnect with life by launching this singing career at age 65, but the part of her that thinks of herself as a sexual being is kind of tucked away. He’s thinking, “I’m gonna go away and just live in Vermont and go fishing.” They kind of do this dance around each other for a while until they start to feel like these feelings are reawakened inside of them. But then just like when you’re a young person feeling that, it’s scary. When you’re a young person you’re nervous because you don’t know what you’re doing and you’re kind of fumbling around, but when you get to become an adult you’ve had wives and husbands and you’ve been through it and you know what it’s like to have a loss and how painful it is to have a loss. You’re a little tentative about being with that person for those reasons so the dance looks the same but what at stake is slightly different.

This is Reiner’s third consecutive film featuring a character who is a young girl. Sterling Jerins plays Oren’s granddaughter.

Sterling is really gifted. She came in to read for me and I was like, ‘Whoa, who is this person?’ She was nine years old at the time and she had done a part in World War Z. She played Brad Pitt’s daughter. She had a little experience and she just stuck to it. She wasn’t intimidated at all. That’s a good thing about kids — you don’t know anything to know that you should be intimidated. You can always tell if a kid is going to be good if you look at their parents. Her mother was great and you knew that she was going to be okay. The ones that are troubled you can tell where it’s coming from.

Reiner says he never got any advice directly from his father, the legendary writer/director/actor Carl Reiner, but he learned a great deal from watching him.

When I was 14, 15, 16 during the summer when I was off from school, I would go every single day with him to The Dick Van Dyke Show and watch him. I watched him work with the actors, work with the writers. I saw the stage, the performances and where they put the cameras and all that. So that’s how I learned. It wasn’t so much from him sitting down, “Well, son, this is how you do it.”

He also learned a great deal when he was a young actor on All in the Family, playing the son-in-law of Archie Bunker.

We did over 200 shows in front of a live audience. So I learned a lot about what audiences like, what they don’t like, how stories are structured. I would spend a lot of time in the writing room and I actually wrote some scripts. And from Carroll O’Connor I learned a lot about how you perform and how important the script and story are for the actors. So the actor doesn’t have to push things. You can let the story and the dialogue support you if it’s good. I had great people around me and I took from all the people that was around.

He compared Oren to Archie Bunker.

Carroll O’Connor brought his humanity to the character even though he had these abhorrent views. He’s still a feeling, human being. He loved his wife even though he acted the way he did, and he loved his daughter. Those things come out. I don’t think anybody’s all good or all bad.

Celleste has always found that the more she learns, the less she knows of a quiet enjoyable existence. The more she crams inside her head, the more dull and uninteresting things sometimes seem. But then, Celleste is content, happy to be where she is, expertly skilled in her field of computer programming.Having always had a knack for computers, Celleste spends much of her free time studying up at the library, nose buried in books. Whether books on programming or coding, Celleste is sure to be there, reading away, studying, cramming more knowledge into her brain, heightening her levels of intelligence while lowering her unfed lust for life.One day while at the library, Celleste meets a friendly if rather quirky old man, a man who approaches and asks if she might not mind the company so he can rest his weary body across from her.Seeing no harm in entertaining some public interaction at the public library, Celleste agrees and soon begins a rather unexpected conversation which seems strangely centered around her own intelligence.The old man has many unique ways of looking at life, a perspective the modern world has frowned upon. His ideas may be as old as the varnished and gnarled cane he carries, but one of those ideas is about to change everything for young Celleste.As he puts it, What Goes Up… must in time go down. For every rise there is a fall, and as he puts it, Celleste’s craving for knowledge has built up her intelligence so high that when at last it goes down, it may just plummet quite far.Not buying the convoluted logic, Celleste finds herself somewhat fascinated by the concept, though more accurately fascinated by the way light twinkles off this man’s old cane, letting her thoughts quickly distract, fall away, and eventually discovering that maybe, just maybe, what she has studied hard to build up is already falling like a stone.In the end, parting ways with this mysterious old man, Celleste will embrace a new thirst for cramming her head with something enti

Eckhart Tolle, Author Of ‘A New Earth,’ Goes ‘Soul To Soul’ With Oprah (VIDEO)

As the author of best-selling books A New Earth and The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle has written extensively about being fully present and developing an enlightened sense of awareness. Whether he’s discussing the secret to stress-free living or explaining how to truly connect with God, Tolle’s teachings have captivated many — especially fans of OWN’s “Super Soul Sunday.”

When Tolle sat down with Oprah for a profound conversation about consciousness, he also tackled some of life’s biggest questions in a rapid-fire segment.

Oprah says, “Finish this sentence: ‘The world needs…'”

“Spiritual awakening,” Tolle answers.

“‘I believe in…'” Oprah begins.

“Nothing in particular,” he says.

This answer derails Oprah’s questions as she bursts into laughter. “That cracks me up!” she tells Tolle.

Composing herself, she continues. “Okay. ‘Love is…'”

“The recognition of yourself, the essence of yourself, in the other,” Tolle says. “You recognize yourself in the other. The oneness. The recognition of oneness.”

“Wow. That is love. That’s a good definition,” Oprah says before continuing her questions. “‘I’m grateful for…'”

“I’m grateful for, always, this moment,” Tolle responds. “The now. No matter what form it takes.”

Beginning Sunday, March 23, at 12 p.m. ET, Oprah and Eckhart Tolle present a 10-part series airing for the first time on television, taking viewers on a chapter-by-chapter journey through “A New Earth.” The series debut airs immediately following the season premiere of “Super Soul Sunday.”

First Nighter: LBJ Bio “All the Way” With Bryan Cranston Goes All the Way

Missing for deliberate reasons or reasons of chronology from All the Way, Robert Schenkkan’s sure-fire hit at the Neil Simon, are Robert Kennedy, Sam Rayburn, Lynda Baines Johnson, Luci Bird Johnson, Jacquelyn Bouvier Kennedy, chroniclers Robert Caro and Doris Kearns Goodwin.

Otherwise, nothing that happened involving Lyndon Baines Johnson, here several times calling himself “the accidental President,” seems to have been overlooked in the past-paced coverage of events from the post-Dallas assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy on November 22, 1963 through election night, November 3, 1964.

The mission Schenkkan has set himself in this action-packed, verbiage-loaded two-acter (The Great Society, a sequel is due on the West Coast this coming July) is to demonstrate with no shilly-shallying exactly how sly-dickens Johnson (Bryan Cranston, having completed Breaking Bad‘s 60 hours) eased his way around Democrats and Republicans alike whenever he set his mind to it–which was always.

The first All the Way half is a head-knocking-after-head-knocking account of Johnson’s fighting for the 1964 Civil Rights Bill Act by cozying up to anyone in his way. There were plenty of the living and thinking obstacles, including bill-naysayer Southern Democrat Sam Russell (John McMartin) and pro-bill-but-conflicting-needs Martin Luther King (Brandon J. Dirden), Roy Wilkins (Peter Jay Fernandez) and Stokeley Carmichael (William Jackson Harper).

What the first act really is is a series of confrontations Johnson has–interrupted only a few times by the King group arguing among themselves–during which he knows what buttons to push on his demurring colleagues and pushing them as if it’s with the index finger he regularly uses to poke men in the chest.

In the second act, it’s the election he’s after. Having to deal with complications that are affecting his popularity and Barry Goldwater’s concomitant gains in the polls, he has to work his politico magic in the same manhandling way. Compounding his worries are run-ins with J. Edgar Hoover (Michael McKean), who has various threats up his sleeve, many as a result of surreptitious taping of the gal-on-the-side type he also has on Reverend King.

The most mesmerizing of these manipulation scenes are his dangling the vice president slot before the very liberal Hubert Humphrey (Robert Petkoff), his heavy-tread waltzes with Senators Everett Dirksen (Richard Poe) and James Eastland (James Eckhouse) and his cunning Hoover one-on-ones.

At these charged exchanges, Cranston triumphs. Not really resembling LBJ–although something may have been done to enlarge his ears, or maybe it’s an illusion–he raises himself to the accidental, and then deliberate, Texan’s height. He also takes on the standing and walking and sitting postures, the guffaw when joking with friends, enemies and frenemies alike and the obscenity-spouting glee, the joy in progress-achieving pragmatism.

It’s a towering performance in a couple senses of the word and directly in line with how Johnson has been depicted by journalists, historians and biographers. (Maybe Caro and Goodwin aren’t as absent from the stage as they seem.)

Effective as Schenkkan’s opus is, there’s something about it that makes it effective in a questionable way. There’s no doubt that director Bill Rauch–artistic director of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, where All the Way was first performed–collected an extremely capable cast of 20. Many, if not most of them, are doubling and tripling. (The putting on and taking off of Paul Huntley’s wigs must be some backstage sight to see.)

They deserve acknowledgment individually, especially the venerable McMartin, Dirden, McKean, Poe, Eckhouse, Fernandez, Christopher Liam Moore as the Prez’s mainstay aide Walter Jenkins, Roslyn Ruff as Coretta Scott King and Fannie Lou Hamer, Betsy Aidem as ultra-understanding Lady Bird Johnson and Rob Campbell as George Wallace. It has to be said that many of the actors, dressed in Deborah M. Dryden’s ’60s fashions, don’t convincingly look a great deal like the boldface names they impersonate. But Campbell is the startling exception. He plays five parts, but he’s a dead ringer for beetle-browed Governor Wallace.

While the actors can be thanked, Rauch’s demands on them may occasionally be questioned. Probably to get the fascinating rhythm and decibel level of Johnson’s encounters going and just as possibly sensing the need to move a heavy-on-the-word-count script quickly, the scenes are revved up. Frequently (too frequently?), such speed and volume gives an over-the-top feel to the production. It’s as if the audience is invited to scan a string of Herblock editorial cartoons. An additional development is that Johnson’s any-means-to-an-end approach appears throughout to be ruling him more than his sincere beliefs in the radical changes he’s pursuing.

Rauch receives commendable help for his lickety-split tempo from Christopher Acebo, who’s designed a courtroom-like utilitarian set that with the addition and subtraction of various furnishings can be the Senate floor or the Johnson’s bedroom, can be DC, Atlanta or Mississippi, can be a Congressman’s lounge or George Wallace’s soapbox arena. Equally impressive are the projections of every sort of environment, climate and television news hour provided constantly by Shawn Sagady and consultant Wendell K. Harrington, who was in on the ground floor of the present projections-everywhere movement.

Just a few parting words about Schenkkan’s title. It’s taken, of course, from the then ubiquitous “All the way with LBJ” slogan. So why not use the slogan in its entirely for the play? (Is there some legal knot?) Conversely, why choose a title already employed for another biographical item, the 1957 movie about comedian Joe E. Lewis from which the Oscar-winning title song emanates? The Sammy Cahn-James Van Heusen ballad isn’t rendered here, but “Happy Days are Here Again” and the memorable alteration of Jerry Herman’s “Hello, Dolly” to “Hello, Lyndon” are.

Well, well, well, hello, Lyndon again.

Jim Gaffigan Goes On A Kale Rant On ‘Conan,’ And He’s Not Wrong

Between this and Jon Stewart’s incredible Chicago pizza rant, last night was a great one for food diatribes on late night TV. For anyone annoyed with the newfound popularity of kale and other healthy-yet-tasteless foods that dominate culinary trends, you have a prophet in Jim Gaffigan.

The “Dad is Fat” author stopped by “Conan” last night to express his displeasure that Whole Foods devotees are trying to force him to eat leafy vegetables that taste like bug spray. “I looked at a can of bug spray, and it said, ‘Made with real kale.'”

Check out the clip above to find out why he hates kale, almond milk and secretly thinks that people who don’t eat gluten are un-American.

The Question That Never Goes Away

The Question That Never Goes Away


Some days, the news seems too much to bear. Yet another tsunami or earthquake or flood or fire or war atrocity. One more gun-toting madman stalking young people in idyllic Norway or moviegoers in Colorado or schoolchildren in Newtown, Connecticut. We turn off the news only to get a phone call about expectant parents with a stillborn baby, or a loved one whose cancer has returned. Really, God? we ask. This again? If we have faith in God, it gets shaken to the core. What was God doing in the moment when that tragedy could have been prevented? If we can’t trust God to keep our children safe or our loved ones from dying in agony, what can we trust God for? It is the question that never goes away. The Question is highlighted in Newtown, Connecticut, where at the scene of the elementary school murders an ambulance driver said, ‘All of us on the fire and ambulance corps are volunteers. I’ve seen some awful things, but we don’t train for something like this—nobody does.’ The Question raises its head again in Japan where a giant tsunami raced at a speed of 500 miles per hour toward shore and in the crushing force of its wave buckled roads, cracked bridges, and collapsed buildings. And 16,000 people died. But in a miraculous turn, an eighty-year-old grandmother and her teenage son were saved after nine days. In one more part of the world Yancey looks at the Question in the former Yugoslavia, in the city of Sarajevo, where a bloody civil war erupted and snipers shot and killed 11,000 countrymen, some women and children. One woman commented, ‘Winters were the worst. Without electricity we had no heat. I had a newborn baby, born in the midst of that hell. We chopped heirloom furniture with an axe.’ But then part of an answer came to the question. ‘On Christmas a neighbor brought me a priceless gift, a root system of a tree. He was a Muslim, didn’t even celebrate Christmas, yet he sacrificed to keep us warm.’ In his classic book Where Is God When It Hurts, Philip Yancey gave us
