AMAs Host Tracee Ellis Ross Is Excited to See Mom Diana Honored at the Show: ‘She’s an International Treasure’

Sunday’s American Music Awards will be a family affair, with Tracee Ellis Ross hosting and mom Diana Ross doing double duty as a performer and the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award.

“She’s a bit of an international treasure in my opinion,” the black-ish star, 45, tells PEOPLE. “I’m excited that a younger generation gets to witness that, even just through the television screen. Also I think it’s a really extraordinary thing to honor somebody who’s had such an everlasting career, whose music has touched lives in such a poignant and special way. Music reaches into your heart, and my mom’s voice has been a part of people’s lives for a long time.”

Ross plans to honor her mother, a 12-time Grammy nominee, in a personal way.

“I love clothes,” says the actress, who recently released a women’s clothing line with JC Penney. “I’m a style girl, so there will be a couple nods to my mother and her extraordinary fashion.”

Aside from the “I’m Coming Out” singer, Ross looks forward to seeing Pink, who will take the stage in addition to Christina Aguilera, Kelly Clarkson, Nick Jonas and more at the awards show. “I’m obsessed with Pink,” Ross gushes. “I think she is extraordinary and she’s got some performances and a couple things I know about that I’m really excited about.”

The Los Angeles native also recognizes that some viewers will expect her to address current events topics such as the numerous sexual harassment and misconduct accusations that have been made against powerful men, as well as gun control in the wake of the Las Vegas tragedy. But whether she plans to comment on those issues will be a ggame-timedecision.

“I think I will follow my heart around what feels appropriate in the moment,” Ross says. “There is a full show and a lot of things are being addressed in other ways. But as a human being, that is clearly an area I have a lot of feelings about. If there’s a way that I feel it’s appropriate to address any or all of those issues, I will. And if not, you guys can go to my Instagram feed, because we know I’m vocal there.”

The single star adds that the range of accusations that’ve come out against Hollywood heavy hitters recently aren’t specific to her industry.

“The Hollywood stories are louder in this moment but this is not a Hollywood story,” asserts Ross. “It’s not a Hollywood scandal. It’s actually a revelation of a reality, and I think that’s really what’s important about what’s happening right now.”

As someone who’s been in the business for over two decades, Ross says that while she’s surprised by the inappropriate behaviors that’ve come to light over the recent weeks, she’s more so appalled.

“Had I known some of those things, I hope I would’ve been a person who spoke up way longer than it had to take,” the Girlfriends alum says. “I would hope that I would not have ben a bystander who didn’t know what to do; that I would push through the fear and attempted to help.”

She continues, “Right now the curtains need to be pulled so that we can actually see what’s here and there’s not a shred of secrecy around this. From there, there’s going to be a lot of learning for people to do and figure out why this behavior is so persistent, so that people can actually not be participating in that kind of abuse of power and privilege.”

The American Music Aawards air Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

The treasure; or, Hours in solitude. Being a selection of the best of pieces from different good authors; with a few originals


This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1915 edition. Excerpt: … TREASURE CHAPTER I THE WISE MAN AND THE FOOt THERE is no justification for the idea that cousins ought to have similar tastes and aspirations any more than that they ought to be alike in form and feature. And yet when people were told that George Harvey and Thomas Ewins were cousins they would generally say: "What! Those two cousins! Well! Who would have thought it!" Certainly the cousins had a few things in common: they had no other near relatives and they lived together, sharing the same joint, the same dish of vegetables, the same pudding, the same loaf, the same domestic et ceteras, provided by Mrs. Bowers. They did not, however, share the same philosophy. They did not often discuss it–as philosophy. But every now and then they raised voices in scorn, each finely overflowing with contempt for the other. They had both had to make their way in life as they had been left fatherless at a tender age, and had sown and reaped for themselves almost from the early teens. Harvey was a printer and for some few years past had managed the business formerly belonging to Edward Gollam, but now the sole property of his sorrowful and not well-to-do widow. When Mr. Gollam died and left his widow with four girls and a printing business, Ewins told his cousin to ask for a partnership, or start printing on his own account. But Mrs. Gollam wondered so pathetically how she "could manage with four girls; if one had been a boy it would have been different, particularly if he had been old enough to step in his father's shoes, but girls . . . and how could she manage a business that she knew nothing of?" And when a woman (or man for that matter) looked pathetically helpless George Harvey was always touched. It was quite true that George Harvey might have made…

National Treasure

National Treasure


Before the birth of Trans Canada Airlines (TCA) in 1937, Canada was one of the very few countries of the world that had no organized air service connecting its principal cities. In 1936, many of the one million people who travelled on scheduled flights in the United States were Canadian citizens who needed to travel south of the border to reach destinations in Canada. C.D. Howe, Minister of Transport in Prime Minister Mackenzie King’s cabinet, was the chief architect of the government-owned TCA. From the beginning, the company was ennobled as more than a means of commercial transport: it was hoped that the TCA, like the Canadian Pacific Railway before it, would “overcome vast geographical barriers, thwart the Americans, reassure the British and unite the country.” Other air companies provided transportation; this one was to be a symbol of national identity – a maple leaf with wings. “National Treasure” details the ins and outs, the backroom politics and the ground-breaking decisions that led to the creation of Trans Canada Airlines, through its early years, to its metamorphosis into Air Canada in the 1950s. The book is an entertaining, well-written account that covers everything from the “teething” problems of the airline in its infancy (such as how to choose the right passenger plane for trans-Canada travel), to the company’s role during World War II, to TCA’s rapid post-war expansion and the notorious infighting between TCA and its rival, Canadian Pacific Airlines. Here are the planes: the Lockheed “14,” which suffered from embarrassing engine failures, the Electra, which featured radio antennas that were prone to lightning strikes, and the Lancaster, which held theTrans-Atlantic non-stop speed record from Montreal to the United Kingdom (11 hours and 14 minutes); the employees: Zebulon Lewis Leigh (“Lewie”), a “barnstormer” who became TCA’s first pilot, and Lucille Garner and Pat Eccleston, registered nurses who became TCA’s first female employees and Canada’s.

Treasure!


Sam and Mary were injured, Tom was nearly buried in a cave-in, and now the walkie-talkie was dead. Perhaps it had broken when he fell. Tom quickened his pace even though he had no idea where this tunnel would lead or what he might find. After what seemed forever, Tom came to an iron staircase that led upward 10-15 feet and ended at a concrete circle. Tom climbed the stairs, but stopped dead in his tracks. Directly in front of him was a skeleton dressed in tattered clothes, staring with an evil grin upon what had once been lips. Clasped in one hand was a piece of paper, and in the other was a pistol! Treasure, the first in a series of books, is a story about Sam McCarthy and his friends who, while playing their favorite game, Numarian Spies, find a real adventure. Pretend spies, pretend maps, and pretend stories lead to real criminals, real maps, and real treasure. That treasure leads Sam, Tom, and Mary on a ten-year time travel adventure to stop the evil Harold Henderson from destroying the universe.

Treasure Hunt: Inside the Mind of the New Global Consumer

Treasure Hunt: Inside the Mind of the New Global Consumer


The essential follow-up to the "BusinessWeek" bestseller "Trading Up" A BMW in a Costco parking lot? A working class family with a 50 inch plasma TV? A 27-year-old Japanese administrative assistant with a collection of Coach purses? An 87-year-old retiree in Ohio exclaiming the value of Aldi brand honey? What’s going on in the mind of the new consumer? Today’s consumers can seem impossible to understand, and even harder to please. For instance, the average mall shopper will spend her 0, then leave when she hits that limit. She’ll probably buy shoes rather than clothing, because she doesn’t want to think about her dress size. And the store most likely to get her money isn’t the one with the nicest display or the deepest discounts… it’s the one closest to her parking spot. In his research with dozens of leading companies, Michael J. Silverstein has interviewed thousands of customers, extracting fascinating patterns about what really drives their purchase decisions. His first book, the acclaimed bestseller "Trading Up," has taught a generation of marketers about the "new luxury" phenomenon, and why consumers will happily pay a steep premium for goods and services that are emotionally satisfying, from golf clubs to bathroom hardware to beauty products. But "Trading Up" only revealed part of the story of the new consumer. The same middle class consumers who are happily trading up at Victoria’s Secret and Panera are going on treasure hunts at Costco and Home Depot. And they are often getting as much emotional satisfaction in the discount stores as in the luxury stores. Silverstein’s new book explains how the new consumer approaches bargain hunting, and how even the most mundane shopping a for things like paper towels and pet food — have become an adventure rather than a tedious chore. It turns out that, in just about every consumer category, both the high end and the low end are growing and innovation rich. Many middle class consumers gladly spend .00 a day for a vente Starbucks latte; others spend 40 cents a day on home brewed coffee, feel good about their frugality, and save up the difference to buy Apple’s newest Nano. Treasure Hunt explains the success of companies as diverse as Dollar General, LG, H. E. Butt, Ebay, Commerce Bank, and Tchibo. Beware: in our bifurcated global market, businesses need a clear strategy for aiming high or low, while staying away from the treacherous middle, where so many have recently stumbled. If your offering isn’t exciting enough to inspire trading up, but not enough of a bargain to satisfy the treasure hunters, you’ll have no emotional connection with your target audience. And, like General Motors or Sears in recent years, your tried-and-true marketing strategies will go into a severe stall.

Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter Official Teaser Trailer #1 (2015) – Drama Movie HD

In this darkly comedic odyssey, Academy Award nominee Rinko Kikuchi stars as Kumiko, a frustrated Office Lady whose imagination transcends the confines of her mundane life. Kumiko becomes obsessed with a mysterious, battered VHS tape of a popular film she’s mistaken for a documentary, fixating on a scene where a suitcase of stolen cash is buried in the desolate, frozen landscape of North Dakota. Believing this treasure to be real, she leaves behind Tokyo and her beloved rabbit Bunzo to recover it—and finds herself on a dangerous adventure unlike anything she’s seen in the movies. With Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter, indie mavericks the Zellner Bros. spin a strangely touching underdog fable, populated by eccentrics and elevated to sonic heights by a Sundance award-winning score from electro-indie outfit The Octopus Project, that will leave audiences rooting for the impossible.

The Radio Boys Search for the Inca’s Treasure


“This is a wonderful land, fellows, full of legend and story, vast mountains, vast rivers, vast jungles, unexplored territory and unconquered tribes.” It was Jack Hampton speaking, and he leaned on the rail of a coastwise steamer, as she came to anchor in the open roadstead of Valparaiso. “I wonder what lies ahead,” said Frank Merrick, leaning beside him. “We ought to get some adventure out of this, besides mere civilized travel.” Even Bob Temple, the most matter-of-fact of the three chums known as the Radio Boys, felt his imagination stirred……….. And so begins the latest adventure of the Radio Boys. An adventure that will see them follow the threads of an old tale and take them in search of Inca treasure – into forbidden monasteries and through hollow mountains in search of a fabled and enchanted city. A journey that would take them through age-old Andean forests only to be betrayed, captured and imprisoned in an ancient Acropolis then brought on trial in front of the Council of the Incas to find an unlikely ally who helps them escape.

Tombstone’s Treasure

Tombstone’s Treasure


Sherry Monahan is an authority on “the city that wouldn’t die” and its history. In Tombstone’s Treasure, she focuses on the silver mines, one reason for the city’s founding, and the saloons, the other reason the city grew so quickly.When the discovery of silver at Tombstone first became known in mid-1880, there were about twenty-six saloons and breweries. By July of the following year, the number of saloons in Tombstone had doubled. The most popular saloon games of the time were faro, monte, and poker, with some offering keno, roulette, and twenty-one. Monahan shares true tales about Tombstone’s mining and gambling history and describes a different time and locale where wealthy businesspeople and rugged miners rubbed elbows at the bar and gambled side by side. It is both shocking and enlightening to learn just how sophisticated Tombstone really was when the Earps, Doc Holliday, Johnny Ringo, and Curly Bill strode the boardwalks. Tombstone actually had telephones, ice cream parlors, coffee shops, a bowling alley, and a swimming pool. Wow! It is so contrary to the Hollywood version of the town . . . but it’s absolutely true.”–from the Foreword by Bob Boze BellRead Sherry Monahan’s interview on AMC on the Wild West and the film Wild Bill
