Dodgers’ Machado stands out for lack of hustle again

Manny Machado's lack of hustle is starting to stand out more than his offense this postseason. The star shortstop had a little too much self-confidence in the sixth inning Friday night when he thought he homered for the Los Angeles Dodgers during Game 3 of the World Series against the Boston Red Sox. Instead, Machado ended up admiring what turned out to be a 368-foot single as it bounced off the wall in left field.

Red Dead Redemption 2’s Biggest Potential Strength is Your Lack of Power

For the better part of the last decade, open world games have been all about power. How much chaos could I sow with cTOS in Watch_Dogs; how much havoc can we wreak with the “Awesome Button” in Saints Row? I feel like they were more about how much control we had over the people, the infrastructure, and the foundations of the world itself than anything else.

Thankfully, we’ve seen this subside somewhat in recent years. Games like Horizon: Zero Dawn and Zelda: Breath of the Wild do a good job of showing us our small size in a big world, though they still gave us that burdensome role of The Chosen One. Link and Aloy trot merrily from town to town slaying giant mechanical beasts and solving everyone’s problems before dashing off to rescue everyone and being hailed the Champion of Everything. I’m tired of playing God in a game, and I’m excited at the prospect that Red Dead 2 purports to offer – the ability to cast off the shackles of destiny and just… be.

‘Black Models Matter’ Protest Blasts Paris Fashion Week For Lack Of Diversity

Looks like Paris Fashion Week’s most importent moment happened off the runway. 

Indi Irvin, a U.K.-based model signed with MSA Models, protested outside the Balenciaga show on Saturday, holding up a sign that read “Les Modèles Noirs Importent,” or as it’s translated, “Black Models Matter.” The signage spoke to the brand’s historical lack of diversity on the runway.

MODELS SPEAK UP

A post shared by Indi (@eyeoccupy2k17) on

The arena was fitting ― Refinery29 reports there were only four models of color of the 47 models who walked in the Balenciaga show (which was actually an improvement over past seasons) ― but her protest speaks to the event as a whole. As New York Fashion Week has made slow but sure strides to be more inclusive, Paris, Milan and London have continued to come up short.

Irvin explained on Instagram that she was planning to protest Lanvin or Celine, or any show that “was big enough to grab the attention back to the cause,” and it “just worked out best at Balenciaga.” She also explained why she felt like now was the right time to speak out.

A post shared by Phil Oh (@mrstreetpeeper) on

“2017 was a big year not only politically but also for my modeling career as it was my first season in the European market,” she wrote. “It is very different here compared to the NYC I’m used too [sic]. February was black history and march is women’s so it just felt right.”

#blackmodelsmatter #indi #pfw #eyeoccupy2k17 ❤

A post shared by Melodie Jeng (@melodiejeng) on

A few days prior, Irvin pointed out that Gucci, which showed at Milan Fashion Week on Feb. 22, featured just 17 models of color out of 119 total models. “It’s 2017,” she wrote. 

17 … it's 2017 #17 #RP @moremodelsofcolor #gucci #blackmodelsmatter

A post shared by Indi (@eyeoccupy2k17) on

The protest caught the attention of many news outlets and street style photographers, including Phil Oh (Mr. Street Peeper) and Melodie Jeng, and with good reason. While Balenciaga did not return a request by The Huffington Post for comment at the time of publication, we applaud Irvin for taking matters into her own hands in the name of inclusivity.

Ryan Murphy Apologizes To Women In Hollywood For The Industry’s Lack Of Equality

Ryan Murphy has a message for the women of Hollywood. 

In a touching speech during The Hollywood Reporter’s Women in Entertainment breakfast on Wednesday, the “Glee” creator accepted the Equity in Entertainment Award, kicking things off with an apology. 

“I am going to begin my speech this morning by telling the women in this room a few things I am guessing no man in your life or in Hollywood has ever said to you lately, or in combination,” he said. “I am sorry. It was my fault. I could have done better and I’m going to do better. And I have no interest in sleeping with you, I just like you a lot.” 

The opening comments garnered laughs from the crowd. Murphy then got serious, launching into an anecdote about the “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia” episode ― about deputy district attorney Marcia Clark ― of “The People vs. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” 

For that particular episode, Murphy explained he hired a female director, but when she wasn’t able to complete the show due to a medical emergency, Murphy decided to step in. The show, as a whole, was a huge success, and Sarah Paulson, who played Marcia Clark, went on to win a Golden Globe for her work. 

As Murphy noted, though, he “did not feel triumph” once the episode aired. He felt “ashamed.”

“I have always had female directors on my shows, but why, here, didn’t I feel I had a roster of women around me who I could turn this important episode over to?” he said, adding, “Why did I make the choice that was easier for me but not for the material or the world in general?”

In his speech, the director continued to talk about the “unacceptable way, today, that female directors are treated and marginalized in our business.” He said that only 15–17 percent of working television industry directors are women, which “should make no sense to us.”

Murphy has made it his mission to promote gender equality in the entertainment industry. In February, he launched the Half Foundation, which aims to provide more opportunities for women, people of color and members of the LGBTQ community working in show business. 

Murphy has been doing his part, with about 60 percent of directing jobs within his company going to women

“What I have learned, in only 11 months, is if you have power and you want to bring positive change, everyone will conspire to help you do that. But you have to speak up,” he said.

Lack of War Hurting Halliburton’s Profits

2015-08-24-1440457765-6048703-t1larg.halliburton.file.gi.jpg
Halliburton’s Company Building in Houston, Texas.

Squeezed by the sudden reduction of global violence, Halliburton announced yesterday the unexpected lack of war will be hurting their next profit report.

“We had been hoping for several good wars in the last few years, but with the Syrian dilemma ending in trade sanctions, Congress voting against ground troops in the Ukraine during the Crimea crisis, and now the Iran Deal suspending even more war in the middle east, we are looking at a bit of a war drought,” said a company spokesman.

Dick Cheney, an expert in starting and maintaining wars, reiterated the need for a proper war soon to balance the books and keep what he called ‘the gravy train thing’ going. “It’s simple economics,” he said. “You can’t just rebuild infrastructure you haven’t blown up, at a mark up, or house and feed troops that aren’t there, where we dumped hexavalent chromium, if no one is going to be there to begin with.”

Continued war scarcity is driving certain arm manufacturers out of the war business altogether. Several long-time military industrial corporations will start diversifying and switch to more profitable peace-time products, like textbooks, agriculture, and cement. “It seems people are interested in growing food, education, and building things. Who knew?” said an unnamed CEO whose company specialized in bomb assembly.

Other executives have had it with what they call the ‘Peace Problem.’ “With diplomatic missions constantly breaking out it’s made things very difficult for us,” said an inside source. “We’re not averse to being creative, arming small militias or even supporting civilian clashes, as long as it’s an expensive conflict. We can adapt, we have children of our own to feed,” she said.

Some war mongers are being more proactive, investing heavily in conflict experts who are brought in as negotiators and can take any decent peace-time agreement and find problems with it. Sands Pierce, a professional conflict expert from EndTime, Inc. says “It’s not that hard, I just keep saying “no” to the most common sense things and ‘no’ again when all my demands are met.” Sanders warns one does have to be a professionally trained obstructionist. “It can be exhausting. Normal people don’t have the stamina to continually say ‘no’ to common sense.”

Halliburton stays hopeful. “We know everything is cyclical,” says a company spokesman. “We’re hoping this peace-time isn’t permanent. We invested a lot of money in man’s inhumanity to man, and aren’t about to give up on it yet.”

Sasheer Zamata Points Out The Lack Of Black Emojis On ‘Weekend Update’

We can all stop pretending that the emoji selection on our iPhones makes any sense. There are zero representations of black people but we need to have two different types of dragons to choose from? Come on.

“Saturday Night Live” cast member Sasheer Zamata did her first “Weekend Update” segment on Saturday’s Martin Freeman-hosted episode, in which she points out how irritating emojis can be for a person of color (who doesn’t identify as a new moon).

To that end, watch her explain to host Colin Jost how texting during a grand jury protest might go down.
