California First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom, Time’s Up Launch #EqualPayCA Campaign

Timed to National Equal Pay Day on April 2, Jennifer Siebel Newsom (who is married to California Gov. Gavin Newsom and prefers to use the title “first partner” rather than “first lady”) has teamed with state politicians and the gender equality organization Time’s Up to unveil an awareness campaign to close the pay gap in California.
Together with California Labor Secretary Julie A. Su and The California Commission on the Status of Women and Girls, Newsom on Monday launched  #EqualPayCA with the goal of educating employees, employers and labor unions, as well as the public, about the issues. They have signed 13 inaugural corporate partners — including Airbnb, Apple, AT&T, Shutterfly and Square — to a pledge that commits them to conducting annual gender pay analyses at their companies, as well as reviewing hiring and promotion processes to enact best practices.
Because every good cause needs a shirt, there will be a “Time’s Up Pay Up” shirt released with Prinkshop, a female-owned company whose products are made in the U.S. with non-profit and women-owned factories.
“California has the strongest equal pay laws in the nation — but there is still more work to do,” Newsom said in a statement. “That’s why I applaud

Unmasking New York Times Photographer Bill Cunningham One Frame at a Time

COMPLETELY FRAMED: Inclined to spend 10 hours outdoors each day shooting and to cover 16 or 17 parties a week, New York Times photographer Bill Cunningham amassed a slew of photographs.
Nearly three years after the photographer’s death at the age of 87, his friends Steven Stolman and former coworker John Kurdewan offered a slide show celebration of his life Wednesday night at the Museum of the City of New York. Along with the runway shots and on-the-town party pictures, there were numerous images of the always-smiling street photographer on and off duty.
Stolman said The Times is doing “an extraordinary retrospective coffee table book,” which is due out this fall. “Bill Cunningham: On the Street: Five Decades of Iconic Photography” is set to be published by Clarkson Potter on September 3. Meanwhile, Kurdewan has an “amazing collection of memorabilia, personal photographs, letters, Post-it notes and other keepsakes from working with Cunningham that would make for a compelling story, Stolman said. The photographer’s archives prior to 1993 are owned by his family, and those post-1993 belong to The Times, he added. His total estate reportedly was valued at $ 4 million.
Wednesday’s crowd also saw photos of Cunningham’s sparse loft where boxes of files

Messi won’t be a leader for as long as he goes to the toilet 20 times before a game – Maradona

Lionel Messi is not a leader, according to Diego Maradona, with the Barcelona and Argentina talisman accused of “going to the bathroom 20 times before a game”. At 31 years of age and having spent more than a decade as an elite performer in the global game, the five-time Ballon d’Or winner is accustomed to shouldering pressure and expectation. Maradona believes Messi is the wrong choice for Argentina as, while he is unquestionably their best player, he lacks the personal skills required to inspire those around him.

Camera della Moda Responds to New York Times Article

MILAN – A “saddened and concerned” Camera della Moda has responded to The New York Times article on “shadow workers” in Italy, which claims “thousands of low-paid home workers create luxury garments without contracts or insurance.”
”As the acclaimed writer, Edoardo Nesi acknowledges in his award-winning book, ‘Story of My People,’ published in 2013, the Italian supply chain has been under attack for a long time,” the group said in an official statement. “CNMI and its members are committed to working toward making the Italian supply chain resilient, fair and humane on every front. It is a complex process and it takes time; there are no easy solutions, but we are working together through our established Working Group on Social Sustainability and have already achieved substantive gains. We continue to implement solutions using our evidence-base and by working collaboratively.”
At a fashion show here, Carlo Capasa, president of the association, told WWD that this progress was overlooked by Times.
“For example, the NYT article uses statistics on homeworkers that date back to 1973,” read the statement. “The only recent statistics cited are from Tania Toffanin, the author of ‘Fabbriche Invisibili’ who estimated that ‘currently there are 2,000 to 4,000 irregular homeworkers in apparel production.’ Setting this in the context of

Dog Friends Rescued from ‘Bad Situation’ Insist on Cuddling at All Times

Charity and Suzy Q have been through a lot — but at least they have each other.

Pit bull mix Charity and Miniature Pinscher/Chihuahua mix Suzy Q were recently seized from their former owner, along with two other dogs, and brought to Mississippi’s Jackson County Animal Shelter, where they quickly caught the eye of adoption coordinator Maridee Bond Mallette.

“Every time I pass, they’re always laying together in some new, adorable position,” she tells PEOPLE of the bonded pair.

Charity and Suzy Q were brought into the shelter in sorry shape. Mallette said both dogs arrived from a “bad situation” dirty, skinny, infested with fleas and battling demodex — a parasite that lives in the hair follicles and causes hair loss. Charity is almost completely bald.

After coming from all this negativity, it seems Charity and Suzy Q have found one positive: they’re together.

And things are only getting better. Staff at Jackson County Animal Shelter, which serves the county and its surrounding cities, have bathed the dogs, trimmed their nails and provided them with the care they desperately need. The canine companions will soon be on their way to Third Coast Rescue, where they will be able to receive even more attention and work on finding a forever home.

Since this pair is obviously bonded, Jackson County Animal Shelter and Third Coast Rescue want the dogs to eventually be adopted together. Before the buddies move to a new home, they will be fully vetted by the rescue and placed in a foster home to heal and grow their hair back.

Once Charity and Suzy Q are their best selves, they can start the exciting process of finding their perfect pet parents.

Sarah Palin Pays Tribute to ‘Friend’ John McCain: ‘I Will Remember the Good Times’

Sarah Palin is remembering Sen. John McCain after her former running mate died of brain cancer at the age of 81 on Saturday.

Sen. McCain and Palin, once the governor of Alaska, ran as a ticket in the 2008 presidential election.

Palin, 54, wrote on Twitter Saturday, “Today we lost an American original. Sen. John McCain was a maverick and a fighter, never afraid to stand for his beliefs. John never took the easy path in life — and through sacrifice and suffering he inspired others to serve something greater than self.”

She continued, “John McCain was my friend. I will remember the good times. My family and I send prayers for Cindy and the McCain family.”

She also wrote on Instagram, “Heartfelt condolences. God, please provide peace to Sen. McCain’s family at this time. To all who honor him and his service: we share sorrowful feelings tonight, but remain thankful for Sen. McCain and all our vets and active service members who serve something greater than self. God bless the McCains.”

Palin previously spoke out on Friday when McCain’s family announced his decision to discontinue treatment for his stage-four cancer.

“Prayers for Sen. McCain and his family at this most trying time,” she wrote on Instagram. “May comfort and peace envelop them. May my friend sense appreciation for his inspiration to serve something greater than self.”

In recent months, Sen. McCain expressed regret about selecting Palin as his vice presidential candidate in his book, The Restless Wave: Good Times, Just Causes, Great Fights, and other Appreciations, and in an HBO documentary.

He said that not choosing his friend and former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) as his running mate was “another mistake that I made” during the election, which President Barack Obama won, though he offered praise for Palin’s work on the campaign.

Palin told The Daily Mail in May, “That’s not what Sen. McCain has told me all these years.”

She added, “I attribute a lot of what we’re hearing and reading regarding McCain’s statements to his ghostwriter or ghostwriters.”

RELATED VIDEO: Senator John McCain Dies at Age 81

Tributes for Sen. McCain, the former POW and longtime Republic politician, also came from McCain’s family members.

His wife Cindy McCain, 64, wrote, “My heart is broken. I am so lucky to have lived the adventure of loving this incredible man for 38 years. He passed the way he lived, on his own terms, surrounded by the people he loved, in the place he loved best.”

His daughter Meghan McCain, 33, said, “In the thirty-three years we shared together, he raised me, taught me, corrected me, comforted me, encouraged me, and supported me in all things,” she wrote in part. “He taught me how to live. His love and his care, ever present, always unfailing, took me from a girl to a woman — and he showed me what it is to be a man.”

Funeral arrangements for Sen. McCain are underway.

All the Times Fast Food Brands Clapped Back at Their Haters on Twitter

Oooh, burn!

In recent years, Twitter has become a major marketing tool for all brands, but it’s also become a great way for fast food joints to clap back at their haters (and their competition).

While Wendy’s quickly gained a reputation for having the sassiest Twitter on the block, especially because of their ongoing feud with McDonald’s over fresh versus frozen beef, other brands took notice and began dishing out their own snarky tweets in response to customer questions, celebrity news, or other brands’ promotions.

Read on for some of the best zingers from the fast food giants.

Taco Bell

While Taco Bell doesn’t typically engage in social media fights, the brand has had a few standout moments from their own Twitter account, including their correction of a grammar error in one of White Castle’s tweets to Chrissy Teigen. The taco joint also fired back at Old Spice when the deodorant company accused the fast food chain of false advertising.

DiGiorno

Frozen pizza company DiGiorno also joined in on the fun, inciting a pizza war with Papa John’s. The frozen pizza chain mocked Papa John’s slogan “Better Ingredients. Better Pizza.” when they tweeted a declining graph meant to represent Papa John’s sales above a tweet that read, “Better Pizza. Better Sales.” The company also briefly changed their bio to the new slogan to spite Papa John’s.

Burger King

Aside from their epic promposal to Wendy’s on a marquee sign outside of one of their restaurants, Burger King has also thrown shade at the company on social media. First, the chain used social media to promote their spicy chicken nuggets, a menu item that Wendy’s had previously discontinued, leaving the Twitter-verse in an outrage. The brand found people’s old tweets asking where Wendy’s spicy nuggets went and used them as advertising for their own spicy nugget addition to their menu.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

Then, Burger King promoted a 5 for $ 4 deal just days after Wendy’s announced their 4 for $ 4 deal. Even though they didn’t mention the square-burger chain in their tweet directly, Twitter users were quick to notice the shade in their tweet which read, “Because 5 is better than 4.”

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

However, Wendy’s never goes down without a fight, so when a Twitter user, who has since switched their account to private, asked what Wendy’s had in response to the deal, they responded with two simple words: “edible food.”

Wendy’s

Of course, Wendy’s has the longest history of roasting people on Twitter, including their iconic tweet suggesting that asking to be directed to the nearest McDonald’s is essentially the same as asking to be directed to a garbage can.

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js

The company also recently called out pro-golfer Tiger Woods when he flubbed his first hole at the 2018 U.S. Open, scoring an unimpressive triple bogey. “Tiger, next time you’re going to get a triple…” the brand tweeted beneath a photo of their triple cheeseburger.
