Steve Kerr’s Joke About DeMarcus Cousins Won’t Sit Well With Rest Of NBA

As the old saying goes, the rich get richer. The Golden State Warriors have embodied that notion and then some this summer. Mere weeks after winning their third NBA championship in four seasons, the Warriors somehow managed to upgrade as DeMarcus Cousins agreed to join Golden State on a one-year deal. While taking in summer league action in Las Vegas over the weekend, Warriors coach Steve Kerr couldn’t help but joke about his team adding yet another superstar. The Warriors already had an embarrassment of riches, and the addition of Cousins makes the two-time defending champions flat-out ridiculous. Then again, titles aren’t won on paper, so we’ll have to wait and see if the new-look Dubs live

Kim Zolciak-Biermann Says She Won’t Show Dogs on Social Media After a Stranger Called Animal Control Services

Kim Zolciak-Biermann is fighting back after someone reported that she was not taking care of her pets.

The Don’t Be Tardy star, 39, shared a series of videos on Snapchat explaining her story while focusing on a business card of an employee of the Lifeline Animal Project at Fulton County Animal Services.

“Apparently somebody thought it would be really cute to call the animal control center on my dogs today and say that they were not being taken care of,” she said. “I am utterly f—ing disgusted and appalled by the person that did this.”

Zolciak-Biermann continued by saying that her dogs are treated very well, pointing out that she recently spent $ 3,000 to take care of rescue puppies.

Due to the incident, the reality star said she would “no longer be sharing any part of my dogs and their life on my social media any longer.”

Reps for Zolciak-Biermann did not respond to a request for comment. The Lifeline Animal Project employee who visited her home could not be reached.

Earlier in the weekend, Zolciak-Biermann shared a video of her daughters bathing a puppy named Sage and another of her daughter playing with their dog Sinn (short for Sinatra).

 

In April, Zolciak-Biermann’s 4-year-old son Kash had a terrifying incident with a dog that sent him to the hospital and in danger of losing sight in his left eye. Since the encounter, Kim and her husband Kroy, 31, have slowly been reintroducing their six kids, Kash in particular, to more dogs to help them get over any fear of animals they might have developed after the attack.

“Kroy and I felt it was super important to continue to encourage Kash to be around animals,” she wrote in a May 28 Instagram post. “Kash is an absolute animal lover and I didnt/don’t want him to fear animals after all he has been through.”

She even shared a photo of Kash snuggling with a tame and tiny rescue puppy over the weekend, captioning the sweet photo: “How @kashbiermann has been spending the last 2 days!! extremely thankful @cheftraceybloom opened my eyes to rescuing puppies/dogs. Also thankful for the advice @iheartmiko gave me about reintroducing Kash to dogs sooner then later!!”

Real Frustrated Lawyers Tell A Fake Trump They Won’t Save Him

Throughout the last month, President Donald Trump and his team keep confirming and then denying that he is under investigation by the Department of Justice.

Besides Trump confirming an investigation on Twitter, the most notable instance was his lawyer, Jay Sekulow, claiming that Trump was under investigation and then that he wasn’t under investigation during the same “Fox News Sunday” interview.

It remains unclear whether Trump truly is under a high-level investigation, but that didn’t stop Comedy Central’s “The President Show” from constructing an entire segment to parody the president’s dire/maybe-not-dire situation.

You’ve defended con-artists, foreign agents and mobsters, but have you ever done all three at once?
Parody of Donald Trump

The parody Trump addresses this confusion by saying, “I realized this week that I need to build a tremendous legal team to help me with this investigation that I’m totally not under ― wink!” Of course, he didn’t really wink towards the camera because his eyes were already in an uncomfortable-looking squint.

The parody Trump, played by Anthony Atamanuik, then auditioned real lawyers to join his legal team.

“You’ve defended con-artists, foreign agents and mobsters, but have you ever done all three at once?” the parody Trump asked one of these lawyers while pointing to himself.

It quickly became clear, though, that the underlying premise for this sketch was for lawyers to vent their overwhelming frustration with Trump to this stand-in for the president.

One of the recruited lawyers is Gloria Allred, a civil rights lawyer who has filed a lawsuit against Trump in New York. She is representing women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct. 

Trump isn’t getting away from facing his problems this time. Even if it’s sadly just a parody.

Jessica Chastain Won’t Take Roles Until She Knows What Male Stars Are Making

Jessica Chastain is officially done making less money than her male costars. 

The “Zero Dark Thirty” star, who is a vocal supporter of closing the wage gap in Hollywood and beyond, revealed in an interview with Variety on Monday that she now refuses roles with unequal wages based on principle. (In 2015, Chastain told HuffPost she made a small fraction of what Matt Damon was paid for “The Martian.”)

“I’m not taking jobs anymore where I’m getting paid a quarter of what the male co-star is being paid,” Chastain told Variety. “I’m not allowing that in my life.”

Chastain stated that when negotiating for roles, she makes it a point to ask producers about what they’re offering her in comparison to the men in the film.

“I don’t care about how much I get paid; I’m in an industry where we’re overcompensated for the work we do,” the actress explained. “But I don’t want to be on a set where I’m doing the same work as someone else and they’re getting five times what I’m getting.”

The actress admits that sticking to her convictions and her principles hasn’t always been easy. Chastain revealed that she recently turned down “something huge” because of the wage gap issue. 

“I turned it down, and they didn’t come back. I remember afterwards I was like, ‘What did I do? Maybe it was a mistake,’” Chastain said.  

“But it wasn’t, because everyone in the studio system heard what I did. So what you’re doing is creating a reputation: Don’t bring Jessica something where she’s not being fairly compensated compared to the male actor. Even though I lost that film, I’ve created a boundary. I drew a line in the sand.”

Head over to Variety to read the full interview.

Utah Family Who Sold Belongings to Live on the Road for a Year Announce Next Big Adventure: ‘It Won’t Be Easy’

After selling practically everything they owned to live on the road for a year in a fifth-wheel trailer, a Utah family of six has decided since returning home that a quiet life in the suburbs is not for them.

So Michael and Marisa Johnson and their four children are once again leaving their hometown of Eagle Mountain — this time to live in South America.

Beginning in mid-March, they’ll spend a year volunteering with Operation Underground Railroad, hoping to comfort children who have been rescued from sex trafficking and have no homes to return to because they were either sold as sex slaves or their families have moved away.

“I think about my own children and know that if they had endured something so horrific, I’d want somebody to be there for them,” Marisa, 40, tells PEOPLE. “We want to help these kids to see that they now have a voice and a choice of what they do with the rest of their lives.”

Doing something outside of their comfort zone became important to the Johnsons when they returned to Utah last year after renting out their home, selling most of their possessions and hitting the highway in search of adventure and togetherness in a 400-square-foot trailer, blogging about their new lifestyle along the way.

Michael, 40, gave up his job as an investor at a local bank; Marisa decided that she could run her essential oils business anywhere, and their four children — Reece, 16, Maya, 13, Mason, 11, and Madelyn, 7 — agreed to put their social lives on hold for a year.

“It seemed that I was never home — I was always working,” Michael tells PEOPLE, “and it bothered us that we weren’t writing our own story. So we decided, ‘Why be defined by our stuff? Let’s release it and go. Why not take a chance?’ ”

Because the Johnson kids are homeschooled, it was fairly easy to transfer their daily routines to the kitchen table of the $ 55,000 trailer purchased for the trip.

Sharing one bedroom together, though? Not so much.

“The hardest part was having to share a bed with my sister (Maya) and not having very many toys,” says Madelyn. “But visiting a jelly bean factory, meeting new people and going to lots of beaches helped make up for it.”

In one year, the Johnsons and their two yellow labs, Lily and Jada, made it to 27 states, stopping at every national park and museum they could find along the way. Craters of the Moon in Idaho was one favorite stop, along with the beaches of Big Sur in northern California and Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee and North Carolina.

Each family member was allowed to bring enough clothes to fit on two shelves, plus two totes for toys, books, electronics and favorite mementos.

“We stayed in RV parks along the way and had to go grocery shopping about every three days,” Marisa tells PEOPLE. “The kids spent several hours every day doing homework, but seeing the amazing diversity of our country was the best education they could have asked for. Being on the road together 24/7, we all learned what’s important. The trip brought us closer together.”

For “alone” time, everyone relied on earphones to escape with their favorite music now and then, she says, “and if there was an argument, you learned to forgive and forget pretty quickly.”

When they returned home to Utah last fall, the Johnsons decided to look for another opportunity to grow as a family, only this time while serving others. When Marisa learned about a care center in South America for children who had been rescued from sex trafficking, she knew there was no need to search further.

In a week or two, after the fifth-wheel trailer is sold, the family will pack their suitcases and fly to an undisclosed nation to volunteer for one year.

“We’re hoping to make a difference in these kids’ lives somehow,” says Michael, “and we want to let them know that somebody’s there for them. A lot of them were sold by family members or taken away with the promise of a modeling or acting career. We want to help them start over and know they are loved.”

“Living away from home for another year won’t be easy,” he admits, “but it’s important to focus on others, and not just ourselves. That’s the lesson we hope our kids will take away from this: We’re all in this world together.”

Nicki Minaj Says ‘Racism’ Is The Reason This Designer Won’t Take Her Call

Giuseppe, what’s good? 

Nicki Minaj put the acclaimed Italian luxury shoe designer Giuseppe Zanotti on blast Friday after the brand’s PR people apparently refused to take Minaj’s call. 

The rapper unleashed a tweetstorm about the incident, and here’s how it went down: 

[Editor’s note: Minaj did wear the sneakers, though it appears she wore them for Glamour in 2011.] 

The 34-year-old entertainer’s problems with Zanotti arose when she found out the designer was making capsule collections with other artists (most recently Zayn Malik and Jennifer Lopez), which would presumably give the collaborator a share of the shoe’s profits. 

Minaj claimed that because she was black, she could only “inspire” Zanotti, but not partner with him: 

Minaj retweeted a fan’s photo of some of the “Nicki” shoes that show up when you search for them in the designer’s collection: 

Toward the end of her Twitter call-out, Minaj said she wouldn’t permit this “racism and disrespect.” She called on her fans to start Tweeting or Instagramming the hashtag #GiuseppeWhatsGood, a reference to her famous line to Miley Cyrus at the MTV Awards. 

Soon enough, her #Giuseppe hashtag was trending on Twitter: 

Minaj again clarified to fans that is wasn’t about the money, “just the disrespect:”  

UPDATE, 3:21 p.m.:  Zanotti appears to have taken the “Nicki” shoes down from his website, which led to another round of tweets from Minaj: 

The Huffington Post reached out to Minaj and Zanotti and will update this post accordingly.

WATCH: Valuing What You Have to Offer (Fear that others won’t)

You have gifts and talents to share… trust me on this. But doubting the value of these gifts – and the fear that others won’t see the value – can stop you from sharing what you have to offer… or from allowing yourself to be compensated for what you do. I hope this will help you more fully appreciate what you offer, which will help others do the same.

If you are new to tapping, it will be beneficial to also watch the first episode in the “Tap Out Your Fears” series — which explains the basics of EFT — click here.

As with any of my tapping videos, this is an abbreviated process for releasing uncomfortable feelings and enhancing good ones. Some folks may find their fear dissolve after just one tapping session, but for others, it will take some repetition, bringing the discomfort down little by little each time. (Still others may uncover specific issues that are best addressed directly with a wellness practitioner.) In any event, this brief video should help at least take the edge off the discomfort, freeing you up to enjoy life much more. Let us know how it helped you!

Tapping can sometimes bring up long-buried emotions, which is why I state that, before tapping along, folks must take full responsibility for their own well-being. For more information about that, please read this disclaimer.

Until next time, feel free to tap along with any of the many videos I have on YouTube or the many recordings I have at www.TapWithBrad.com.

Toby Keith Won’t Apologize For Performing At Donald Trump’s Inauguration Celebration

Country music star Toby Keith will perform at Donald Trump’s “Make America Great Again! Welcome Celebration” concert on Jan. 19 (the eve of Inauguration Day), and he isn’t sorry about it one bit. 

I don’t apologize for performing for our country or military,” Keith said in a statement to Entertainment Weekly, after hearing some criticism for his decision. “I performed at events for previous presidents [George W.] Bush and [Barack] Obama and over 200 shows in Iraq and Afghanistan for the USO.”

Keith will be joined at the celebratory concert by 3 Doors Down, Lee Greenwood, The Piano Guys and the Frontmen of Country, according to an announcement posted on the Presidential Inaugural Committee site.

Broadway star Jennifer Holliday was also slated to perform but backed out. On Saturday, in a letter published by The Wrap, Holliday apologized to the LGBTQ community for agreeing to perform in the first place, calling the initial decision a “lapse of judgement.”

A handful of other celebrities, including Welsh singer Charlotte Church, have also turned down invitations to perform at any of Trump’s inaugural celebrations.

Rebecca Ferguson, Season 7 runner-up of the British “X Factor,” said she would only perform if she could sing the song “Strange Fruit,” which she said “speaks to all the disregarded and down trodden black people in the United States.” 

Meanwhile, “America’s Got Talent” star Jackie Evancho will be performing at the inauguration ceremony on Jan. 20.

Your Guilt-Free Guide To Last-Minute Holiday Shopping That Won’t Kill The Rainforest

By Philip Rothrock
This story is cross-posted on Ecosystem Marketplace

Have you seen Gucci’s retro “Jackie” bags, patterned after one of Jackie Kennedy’s favorites?

They’re not only lovely, but they’re made of “deforestation-free” leather.

That’s a pretty big deal, because cattle ranchers are chopping forests by the football field to produce beef and leather, which is one reason agriculture generates almost 30% of all greenhouse-gas emissions worldwide.

In the past decade, scores of companies have committed to delivering “deforestation-free” commodities, and some are already making good on their promises, while others seem to be making an honest effort to do so.

But there’s a new front opening, as Canadian boutique owner Cathy Reid recently found after receiving a holiday shipment of nightgowns.

“Some of the nighties are classic cotton flannel,” she wrote on her blog. “Others are silky fabrics, soft and cozy, perfect for the cooler nights in November.”

But then a customer read the label, and found they contained something called “rayon“, which Reid soon learned is a “cellulosic fiber” made of trees.

Such fibers are more common than you’d think, and they’re supposed to be more environmentally-friendly than cotton, that ravenous vampire plant that sucks the life out of soil.

That eco-friendliness, however, is questionable – and you, as a conscientious consumer, have the power to find the answers.
2016-12-18-1482072520-1389589-TimberPulp.PNG

Seven companies have committed to improve their sourcing of wood fibers for fabrics, but none have reported progress. Here is how that’s reflected in one Supply Change profile.

The “Big Four” Deforestation Commodities

Logging for timber and pulp – which includes cellulosic fibers – is the third-leading driver of deforestation around the world, and cattle ranching – which generates leather – is number one. These, together with soy and palm, comprise the “big four” forest risk commodities responsible for most of the world’s tropical deforestation – and until recently, it was nearly impossible to know if your holiday shopping was contributing to the problem.

That started to change when manufacturers like New Balance and Louis Vuitton, as well as retailers like Inditex/Zara and C&A, started promising to chop deforestation from key commodity supply chains. Then NGOs like CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project) started rating companies based on their commitments. Last year, the Forest Trend’s Supply Change project started tracking the progress that companies report toward achieving those commitments – providing in the process a fascinating glimpse into the complex, interlocking global supply chains that stretch around the world, involving cattlemen and loggers, as well as subsistence farmers and indigenous people who harvest the commodities we buy as leather, linen, and lipstick.

Keeping Tabs

Supply Change monitors hundreds of companies from around the world and across the industrial spectrum, but just 26 of these are shoe and apparel companies, and only 22 of these have promised to reduce their impact on the world’s rainforests.

That’s roughly 85% of the companies profiled by Supply Change in this sector, and almost all of those have made more than one promise – meaning that the 22 companies have generated more than 40 pledges.

Good – right?

Kind of.

Fourteen of those pledges apply to packaging – which many companies (and everyone who recycles) has committed to doing right – while just seven of them apply to clothing made with wood fiber fabrics.

By contrast, 16 apply to leather.

Those differences are no coincidence: environmentalists have been campaigning for recycled packaging since the 1960s, and many are just now waking up to cellulosic fibers. Things can, however, move fast – as we learned with leather.

2016-12-18-1482072780-4508714-DCShop.jpg

Responding to the Critics

In 2009, Greenpeace built a campaign around evidence connecting deforestation in the Amazon with cattle products sold to many large public-facing brands. This set off a ripple effect among buyers and suppliers alike, and New Balance immediately committed to stop buying shoe-leather from suppliers in the Amazon biome. ASOS, Coach and Eram Group followed a few years later.

On the cellulosic fiber front, an NGO called Canopy launched the Fashion Loved by Forests campaign, and scores of retailers and manufactures vowed to steer clear of wood products from ancient and endangered forests.

Those consumer-facing companies, however, are at the mercy of suppliers, and Canopy says that the ten largest suppliers, responsible for about 75% of global supply, are just beginning to set and implement their own sustainability commitments. Fortunately, the two largest, Aditya Birla and Lenzing, are close to wrapping up their first desktop audits of global operations. They make up around 35% of global supply and received highest scores in Canopy’s first update on viscose producers and forests.

Frustratingly, companies are only reporting progress on about half of commitments for companies in every sector tracked by Supply Change, and clothing retailer Inditex/Zara is one of those that hasn’t reported any measurable progress on its clothing commitment so far – perhaps because it’s waiting for suppliers (like Lenzing) to provide traceability.

The Design Cycle

When clothing companies decide to purge deforestation from their supply chains, they face the same challenge that we, as individuals do: namely, where to begin? After all, very few apparel companies produce their own raw materials. Instead, they’re consumers themselves, and they tend to go through predictable stages of improvement.

First, they promise something along the lines of making sure that all of their leather is “deforestation-free” by 2020.

Then they scramble to find out where in the world their leather comes from – which involves mapping transactions between ranchers, slaughter houses, packing companies and finally traders.

At that point, they usually examine three strategies: move forward by avoiding purchases from high-deforestation areas, help iffy suppliers improve their practices, and/or look for alternate materials.

Each of these approaches break down further – some companies aim to restructure their entire supply chains, one supplier at a time, while others turn to existing certification programs. Stella McCartney brand products even use vegan leather.

A disturbing number, however simply go silent – and, indeed, of the 24 wood-related commitments tracked by Supply Change, only 11 have any reported progress. On the leather front, progress reports are available on 12 of 16 commitments.

Once they implement a strategy, they establish procedures for monitoring progress; and – if they’re serious – they look for independent third parties who can do it for them.

Tracing the Lace

Many companies, erring on the side of caution, only make commitments they’re confident they can achieve – like making sure commodities are traceable to the region, mill or tannery they came from, and ideally to the ranch or plantation. Even that, however, can be a monumental task.

Most of the apparel companies Supply Change tracks do intend to trace their leather supply, and a few, like New Balance and Coach,   require all their suppliers to submit signed assurances that their cattle doesn’t come from the Amazon. Coach says its suppliers have done so.

Similarly, H&M requires signed partner agreements to ensure compliance with its Business Partner requirements for both its wood and leather commitments, and its going one step further for its commitment on cellulosic fiber by working with suppliers to make their own CanopyStyle Pledges.

That raises another question: can the suppliers be trusted?

Meeting the Dress Code

Scores of companies are embedding environmental and social issues into their procurement guidelines, and some – like Adidas – are hiring third parties to audit all direct suppliers and making it clear that non-compliance could terminate the contract. A few, like Puma (owned by retail giant Kering) are even providing funds to help suppliers meet their environmental standards.

Puma also publicly lists its top-tier suppliers, while multi-stakeholder initiatives like SEDEX, CERES, CDP (formerly the Carbon Disclosure Project), and IDH Sustainable Trade Initiative aim to help companies find meaningful ways of engaging their suppliers on a range of environmental issues and increasingly land use management.

Other initiatives go even further – and do so in ways that promote real change on the ground.

It’s Fashionable to be Certified

When companies abandon high-risk areas, they often fix their own problem but drive poverty and desperation in the places left behind, according to Rosa Maria Vidal of the Governors’ Climate and Forests Fund.

Certification programs, on the other hand, promote sustainable resource management by ensuring companies maintain minimum environmental and social industry standards.

Roughly 20% of all wood products are certified under either the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or Program for the Enforcement of Forest Certification, but certification efforts only began to seriously consider wood fabrics three years ago. As we saw earlier, only seven companies have committed to sustainably source wood fibers embedded in their clothes, and none of them have reported progress.

In leather, the certification of choice is the Leather Working Group (LWG), which audits companies to make sure their leather isn’t associated with deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon biome – making them, in essence, an audited version of the independent commitments made by New Balance, Coach, Eram Group and ASOS. Roughly half of all leather commitments are tied to the LWG, which has already audited more than 14% of leather production.

All of the companies building pledges on LWG certification are reporting progress, ranging from 15% for H&M to around 100% for Nike and Timberland.

These consumer-facing companies rely on LWG-certified tanneries like Couro do Norte, which in turn use lists of bad actors published daily by government agencies and non-profits to keep suppliers honest.

Brazil’s three largest meatpackers – JBS, Marfrig, and Minerva – also supply the leather sector, and they use the same monitoring systems while also publishing third-party audits of their procurement.

All of these efforts are helping to push these hidden supply chains out into the open, across all commodities, so that – hopefully – products like Gucci’s bag will become the norm rather than the exception that proves the rule.

What Can I Do?

Until that day arrives, you can follow the example set by Cathy Reid’s inquisitive customer and ask your own retailers where their clothes come from. Most probably won’t be able to answer, but those questions do filter up. Here’s a list to get you started:

  • Do any of your clothes contain cellulosic fiber or leather? Are there non-leather and cellulosic fiber alternatives?
  • Where does the leather for your purses, jackets, shoes, wallets, come from?
  • How about the forest fibers? Beware, many leather items say made in Italy or China, but this refers to where the products are manufactured, the cows may still be raised in the Amazon or other threatened landscapes.
  • Does your company have a zero deforestation policy(ies) that cover world-wide production of [cattle/leather] and [wood/clothing fibers]?
  • Has your company begun implementing its policy, including supporting and holding suppliers to account?

Take care this holiday season, and remember to read the fine print, because not all gifts may be as caring and thoughtful as you might think when their sources are tainted by deforestation and exploitation.

Comfortable Pumps That Won’t Make You Want To Rip Your Feet Off

Wearing heels can be total torture, and not just on your feet. Those extra few inches take their toll on your knees, legs and lower back, too.

But if years of trying to survive in heels have taught us anything, it’s that they don’t have to be bad for your body. Many brands are attempting to bolster their heels with padding, support and additional technology that’ll be easier on your tootsies.

Here are our picks for this holiday party season to keep you dancing instead of crying: 

1. Cole Haan’s Antoinette Grand Pump, 100mm ($ 400)

The price tag of these babies is warranted, we promise. With “responsive energy foam,” “achilles padding,” and an “extended leather outsole,” there’s not much of a break-in period with these. 

2. Ann Taylor’s Bette Suede Metal Heel Pumps ($ 128)

Coming soon: This full look. (Shop our new Fall arrivals this Friday.) #FallPreview

A photo posted by Ann Taylor (@anntaylor) on

If the on-trend shiny heel doesn’t lure you in, then the comfort that comes with the chunky heel will. These are just as easy to walk in as they are on your eyes.

3. Rockport’s Total Motion Pointed Toe T-Strap ($ 120)

With soft uppers and a TPU plate for “controlled flexibility and stability,” the just-shy-of-3-inches heel gives wearers sex appeal and structure. 

4. Boo Hoo’s Abbie Wide Fit Wrap Strap Heels ($ 52)

The wide fit on these ensures your toes aren’t going to be screaming for mercy at the end of the night while the giant block heel and ankle-wrap will keep you standing tall (or, at least, sturdy while you’re droppin’ it low).

5. LifeStride’s Sevyn Pump ($ 59.99) 

You can snag this pointed-toe pump in various widths and its Soft System comfort package provides “support, flex, and cushioning” all day. 

6. Chloe’s Lauren Scalloped Suede Pumps ($ 595)

These are a cult-classic for a reason: They epitomize glamour while also being understated and easy to throw on. They’re another shoe with a chunky heel that makes speed-walking through crowds a breeze.

7. Calvin Klein’s ‘Ciley’ Ankle Strap Pump ($ 75.90)

Ankle straps are both chic and purposeful ― especially when they’re made of buttery-soft suede. These have a cushioned footbed with a gel pod insert.

8. MICHAEL Michael Kors MK Flex Mid Pointed-Toe Pumps ($ 99)

We like the texture on these, but we love the flexible, padded footbed on them even more.

Golf Performance Training: . What They Won’t Tell You


If you’ve been golfing for any stretch of time, you’ve probably been exposed to the myth that movement-based functional training and sport-specific exercise can make you a better golfer. Gary Bannister reveals a proven muscle-based alternative that gets better results: proper strength training. A longtime golfer, Bannister has played with some of the world’s greatest champions. He established and coached the men’s and women’s varsity golf teams at Averett College, and opened South America’s first Nautilus gym, which led him to prepare Venezuela’s male and female golf teams for the World Team Amateur Championship in 1986. Bannister advises golfers to build the muscles involved in golf in the most efficient and effective way you can without trying to be specific. That means without trying to duplicate the actions of the golf swing. Only after you’ve done that should you focus on learning to use that strength to your advantage on the golf course. Filled with golfing anecdotes, rich history, and exercises that will keep you fit, you’ll be amazed by how much your game improves through Golf Performance Training.

Michael Caine On Why He Won’t Ever Have To Retire

Michael Caine has been in showbiz for decades, but he swears his career peaked after turning 50. 

The 82-year-old actor sat down for an interview on British talk show “The Jonathan Ross Show,” which will air Saturday, to promote his new film “Youth” where he surprisingly revealed that not youth, but rather, age has helped his career.

He lamented being offered only “grandpa” roles at his age, and said, in his 60s he thought to himself, “uh oh, it’s over.” 

“If you’re the star of the movie, you have to get the girl but then they started making pictures which was great for me and people my age, where you didn’t get the girl but you got the part,” Caine said. “So I didn’t get the girl, I then won two Academy Awards.”

Caine has had several nominations, but his two wins came after his 50th birthday — one in 1986 for “Hannah and Her Sisters” and another in 1999 for “The Cider House Rules.”

Other post-50 celebs have also seen achievement with age. This year’s Oscar nominees include several older actors and actresses, including Bryan Cranston, Charlotte Rampling, Sylvester Stallone and Jennifer Jason Leigh — that’s representation by a post-50 nominee in every best actor or actress category. 

It seems Hollywood might be sitting up and taking notice of older talent, despite Caine’s comments that the roles don’t come rolling in after a certain age. Other actors and actresses have also spoken out about ageism in Hollywood. Antonio Banderas called the pressure to stay young “ridiculous.” And similar to Caine, Meryl Streep recalled being offered more roles to play witches after she turned 40. 

As for Caine, he said he didn’t have to worry about calling it a day in Tinseltown. “You don’t retire from movies,” Caine said. “Movies retire you.”

Donald Trump Just Won’t Give Up His Birther Fantasy In Colbert Interview

Donald Trump has been coming under fire for refusing to distance himself from the “birther” movement he helped fuel, which claims President Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States.  On Tuesday night’s “Late Show,” host Stephen Colbert offered the GOP frontrunner a chance to put the question behind him once and for all. 

“I’m going to throw you a big fat meatball for you to hit out of the park right now,” Colbert said. “This is the last time you’ll ever have to address this question if you hit the ball.” 

“I want to hear this one,” Trump said.

“Barack Obama, born in the United States?” Colbert asked.

When Trump hesitated, Colbert tempted him with the “meatball.”

“It’s a meatball, it’s hanging out there,” Colbert said, mimicking a batter’s home-run swing. “Right there — c’mon.”

But for Trump, it was a swing and a miss. 

“I don’t talk about that anymore,” he said.

“You don’t talk about it?” Colbert asked.  

Trump said he would rather talk about jobs and veterans, but Colbert cut him off. 

“The meatball is now being dragged down subway steps by a rat,” Colbert said, referring to the now-famous pizza-stealing rat. “You missed the meatball.”

The response is in line with what Trump offered on Sunday to a similar question on “Meet the Press.”

“I just don’t want to discuss it,” Trump told host Chuck Todd, calling it a “long, complex issue.”

After taping his Colbert appearance, Trump tweeted that the birther movement began with Hillary Clinton: 

FactCheck.org reports that while the issue was raised by diehard Clinton supporters in 2008, there is nothing to link Clinton, her campaign or her staff to the issue.

Trump is set to appear on national TV again on Sunday on “60 Minutes.”

Michael Moore’s ‘Where To Invade Next’ Deserves The Nonpartisan Audience It Won’t Find

Michael Moore is the 21st century’s most famous documentarian, but not for the same reasons that Ken Burns and Werner Herzog and Errol Morris defined the genre in the previous century. Moore is hyper-aware of the platform he’s carved out for himself. It’s the same platform that got him booed at the Oscars and landed him on Time’s 2005 list of the globe’s most influential people. He galvanizes his core audience — liberals who criticize gun laws and long for universal healthcare — and alienates the non-choir folk who might actually have something to glean from his films. 

That was blindingly transparent at Thursday’s opening-night Toronto Film Festival screening of Moore’s new documentary, “Where to Invade Next.” A packed house at the expansive Princess of Wales Theatre not only laughed at the movie’s many witty moments, but gleeful cheers and applause broke out at regular intervals as the film’s interview subjects pointed out the copious examples that prove America, however great, is culturally, politically and sociologically inferior t0 other countries. Sitting among the crowd, and agreeing with the bulk of their endorsements, I wondered whether what should be seen as a relatively nonpartisan doc would register anywhere outside of the admitted echo chamber that exists within the mainstream entertainment media. Will anyone who doesn’t already question America’s military industrial complex see this film? Aren’t proponents of women’s rights already aligned with the points Moore raises? Doesn’t anyone with half a brain think the country’s lack of paid-vacation laws is chintzy?

The answers to these questions, in all likelihood, are resounding affirmatives. That’s not to say that “Where to Invade Next” isn’t good. Its execution, in fact, is quite effective. It’s built on the guise of Moore assuming the Pentagon’s duties by “invading” — aka visiting — other countries to poach ideas that would make America a fairer, more hospitable place. Along the way, he learns that Italy provides citizens with eight weeks (!!!) of paid vacation. In France, school-cafeteria lunches are five-star affairs. Slovenia offers free college education. Portugal has decriminalized all drug use and seen its usage rates plummet. Women’s health clinics in Tunisia are government-funded.

Wouldn’t it be great if America emulated such policies? “Obviously,” the TIFF viewers shouted by way of periodic applause in response to the film’s talking heads, who blanch at the notion that the United States doesn’t offer the same advantages. The fact that “Where to Invade Next” is built with practical alternatives to America’s systemic flaws makes it a stirring work of political theater, and with only a gentle presence from Moore throughout, progressive audiences will continue to howl, just as they did at Thursday’s screening. But watching the movie with such a devout congregation was a living reminder that a Moore documentary serves constituents rather than the overall populace. With peachier projects like “Bowling for Columbine” and “Fahrenheit 9/11,” that was inevitable. With “Where to Invade Next,” which ends on a hopeful note and should be seen as Moore’s least parochial outing yet (there’s only one George W. Bush crack!), it’s just a shame. This isn’t a quote-unquote liberal movie — it’s a look at the decency that exists across the globe but is often undervalued on our home turf.

Rejoice! The Newest Ankle-Boot Silhouette for Fall 2015 Won’t Kill Your Feet

isabel-marant-midi-ankle-boots-fall-2015-backstage

Isabel Marant fall 2015

Prepare for another bootie bestie this season! The fall 2015 runways saw a new ankle-boot silhouette, one that rose a few inches over the ankle bone but still left plenty of open space beneath the knee. It’s being called the midi, and we love it. Not only does your wardrobe get a new piece to play with, but the higher rise precludes any chance of the stiff edge rubbing against the thin skin near your ankle and foot. Fashion trends that ban blisters? Perfection.

fall-2015-boot-trend-mid-calf-runway

Two styles from the Louis Vuitton fall 2015 runway and a red pair from Marni fall 2015

Style them with skirts and dresses in early fall, and then pull on with jeans when the weather gets chillier. We’ve rounded up some of our favorites below to get your shopping started.

Sorry, Muggles! Daniel Radcliffe Won’t Be In ‘Sharknado 3’

 ”Sharknado 3″ finally gave us a reason to say, “Oh, hell no!”

After Daniel Radcliffe revealed he was a big “Sharknado” fan, rumors of a possible cameo in “Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!” started flying around faster than a Golden Snitch. (That’s fast, y’all. If you catch it, you basically win the Quidditch match.) The actor fawned over the idea during an interview with Ryan Seacrest, and he even came up with scenarios for his awesome death scene.

In an interview with The Huffington Post, “Sharknado 3” writer Thunder Levin said he heard Radcliffe was a fan and even wrote a part for him in the new movie, but alas, it wasn’t meant to be.

“Much as I had hoped that would happen, it did not work out. There was some sort of a scheduling conflict and he couldn’t do it,” said Levin. 

(You’re a disappointment, Harry.) 

Image: TheTerribleDesire

When asked about Radcliffe’s potential part, Levin revealed the “Harry Potter” star was going to be “someone working at Universal Studios,” but he added, “That’s about as far as I can go.”

HuffPost suggested it would be amazing if the actor were actually working at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, but Levin said Warner Bros. probably wouldn’t have been a fan.

Though Radcliffe isn’t in the film, the character he would’ve played still made the cut. Levin says, “Sort of a version of that character is still in the film, but it changed significantly once it was not gonna be him.”   

So there you go, Muggles. Make sure to look out for the part Radcliffe would’ve played, and just imagine how great it would’ve been to see Harry Potter get eaten by a shark. We know at least one dude who will.

Here’s Why Ed Sheeran Won’t Hook Up With Taylor Swift

Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift are BFFs and bedtime texters, and it’s going to stay that way.

During an interview with Power 105.1’s “The Breakfast Club” on Friday, a co-host asked Sheeran if he’s ever tried to hook up with the “Style” singer.

“No,” Sheeran said, after adorably explaining that he “gets on really well with her” in a professional sense. When asked whether or not Swift is Sheeran’s type, he quickly said she was “too tall.”

“I feel like we look like cast members of ‘The Hobbit.’ She’s like, in the elven kingdom,” the British singer-songwriter said. “She’s hanging out with Galadriel and stuff, and I’ve got hairy feet.” Sheeran then said he thinks it’s healthy to have good friends who you don’t hook up with.

We don’t blame him. The two singers already know each other super well, and he even went to lunch with Swift and Calvin Harris on Thursday, so why mess that up?

Mary-Kate And Ashley Olsen Won’t Be In ‘Fuller House’

We didn’t expect Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen to appear in the new “Full House” reboot, and it turns out the 28-year-old fashion designers will not reprise their shared role as Michelle Tanner, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“Although Ashley and Mary-Kate will not be a part of Fuller House, I know how much Full House has meant to them and they are still very much considered family,” executive producer Robert L. Boyett said in a statement. “It has been exciting to see how they have built their professional careers, and I support their choice to focus on their fashion brands and various business endeavors. I appreciate their support and good wishes towards Fuller House.”

The news comes weeks after John Stamos, who is both producing and slated to appear in the Netflix series, called “bullshit” on the sisters, after they told Women’s Wear Daily they weren’t in the loop regarding the new show. Stamos later tweeted that he and Mary-Kate has smoothed things out after having a “sweet talk,” but he apparently wasn’t able to sweet-talk the twins into appearing on the show.

In addition to Stamos, fans of the ABC original series can expect Andrea Barber, Jodie Sweetin, Candace Cameron Bure, and Dave Coulier to appear on the revival. which will follow Bure’s D.J. Tanner as a widow with three kids.

Earlier this month, Bure spoke about “Fuller House” on the “Today” show, saying that the Netflix series won’t be the same as the original. “It’s definitely a fresh take,” she said. “We’re not doing the old show, it’s not a reunion. It’s a spinoff show.”

Chris Rock: I Won’t Be Alive To See Cops Stop Killing Black Kids

In support of the UK premiere of his flick, “Top Five,” comedian-actor Chris Rock conducted an interview with The Guardian, in which he shared his thoughts on everything from Hollywood’s ongoing diversity issues to Barack Obama’s presidency and police violence against black men in America.

During the interview Rock, who was pulled over by police on three separate occasions over the span of seven weeks, went on to reveal his feelings on America’s string of fatal police encounters.

It’s not that it’s gotten worse, it’s just that it’s part of the 24-hour news cycle. What’s weird is that it never happens to white kids. There’s no evidence that white youngsters are any less belligerent, you know? We can go to any Wall Street bar and they are way bigger assholes than in any other black bar. But will I see cops stop shooting black kids in my lifetime? Probably not.

9 Met Gala Dresses You Won’t Appreciate Until You See Them From the Back

Hate to see her go but love to watch her leave was another trend at Monday’s Met Gala. Stylish celebs went all out with trains and many of them, like Sarah Jessica Parker, had helpers to get them and their elaborate trains climb up those epic stairs. “I’m on train duty,” said SJP’s date Andy Cohen, who dutifully followed her with a helping hand. Lady Rihanna had no fewer than three people lifting her showstopping Guo Pei cloak. When asked about the challenges of wearing the look, Rihanna, who seemed to take all her might to get to the top, exclaimed “It’s heavy!”.

Beyonce, who arrived more than an hour after all the guests had settled into dinner inside, had stylist Ty Hunter following her every sashay, arranging her jewel-encrusted tulle train just so. Kim Kardashian’s feathered confection didn’t fare quite as well. While Kanye carefully helped her up the steps, her train left a trail of white feathers in her path. Kind of fitting for Kim, who always leaves her mark. Be sure to see all the dresses here.

Inspiring 8-Year-Old Won’t Let A Tragic Accident Stop Her From Dancing

Alissa Sizemore was playing outside with her siblings one night in May 2014 when a UPS truck ran over her right leg. According to KSL.com, the 7-year-old’s foot couldn’t be saved.

At the time, Alissa’s dance teacher told the local news outlet, “She’ll dance again.” Mom Heather Sizemore recalls Alissa’s determination to do so. When the mom took Alissa’s sisters to their dance studio last summer for dance team placements, the little girl handed her mom her crutches and started to dance. “She hopped to the middle of the room and gave it her all. She wasn’t going to let anybody hold her back,” Heather told PEOPLE.

Members of the dancer’s hometown raised enough money for the little girl to get a prosthetic leg in September 2014 — a big contribution came from an 11-year-old girl who sold her prize pig to donate $ 10,000 to the Sizemore family. After receiving the limb, Alissa started rehearsing for her dance studio’s recital.

“Dancing has been my favorite thing since I was 4. I don’t have part of my leg, but I can’t let that stop me. I still want to dance,” Alissa told PEOPLE.

In late February, the now 8-year-old took the stage to perform a beautiful and inspiring routine to Colbie Caillat’s “Try,” and received a standing ovation.

Watch her performance above, and head over to PEOPLE to read more about Alissa.

Wet Seal Stockholders Won’t See Payout

NO DISTRIBUTION TO STOCKHOLDERS: The Wet Seal Inc., which is set to be acquired by an affiliate of Versa Capital Management via its purchase of the teen retailer in a bankruptcy court auction, said Tuesday in a regulatory filing, a Form 8-K, with the Securities and Exchange Commission that it “does not expect to be able to distribute any proceeds to the company’s stockholders and therefore believes that the shares of its common stock are worthless.”
In many bankruptcies, shares of public firms often become worthless. Whether there will be anything left to distribute to unsecured creditors, who are higher than stockholders in the financial food chain, is still unclear. In addition, the SEC filing said the affiliate of Versa will be responsible to pay B. Riley Financial, which was the stalking-horse bidder, a $ 625,000 break-up fee per the terms of the asset purchase agreement. Wet Seal filed its voluntary petition for Chapter 11 bankruptcy court protection in January in Delaware.

Why I Won’t Be Watching American Sniper

Yes, it’s hard for me to admit, but I am an American Muslim. This is my identity, but it’s very difficult for me to say it out loud these days. I know it’s wrong of me and I constantly get lectured by my other Muslim friends about how I should take pride in my identity and who I am, yet my heart still struggles with it.

I was born a Muslim in the U.S., as my parents had migrated to California in the early 1960s. Growing up I never felt that I was looked upon differently. I was me. This was my home and this is where I belonged. Religion has never been an outwardly beast for me; it was always an inner angel that lived within me and guided me towards kindness and gentleness.

But in the past few years after seeing what has been happening inside and outside of the Muslim world, I am torn. Many things have started to fall in place and make sense to me. This is not the first time in history where people have done crazy things in the name of religion. This is not the first time when wars were fought for political reasons and personal gains and they were covered with the cloak of religion — but why does it hurt more now? Why do I want to scream when I hear about people calling themselves Muslims and killing innocent humans.

But then why do I feel lost and unloved in this country, America, which is my home that I love so much? I am as American as the guy that lives next door to me, yet I am looked at with suspicion. I live a good, clean, ethical life, yet I am made to feel guilty. I am told through the media that I need to apologize and condemns attacks that crazy people around the world are doing. Of course I will — just the way I condemned the Columbine shooting, the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson or the torture chambers in Guantanamo Bay. I will always condemn the evil craziness of mankind wherever it happens not only if it’s done by people who say they are “Muslims.”

Already my progressive Muslim friends and I are feeling sad and upset, and then comes a string of hate tweets and comments all over the media. The release of Clint Eastwood’s movie American Sniper was a box office hit, but it created more hate towards peace-loving Muslims like myself. I will not watch the movie and give my $ 12 to something that promotes hate towards a certain people. Maybe my $ 12 won’t make any difference, but in my heart I will have a clear conscious about not watching a movie that encourages hate. I would watch the movie Selma 50 times if I had to because it carries a message of hope.

I will always be a peace promoter and a compassion warrior, no matter what color, religion and country I come from. So haters of the world, remember before generalizing a certain people of religion, be it Jews, Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Sikhs, Hindus, etc. You will be defeated one day by the peace-loving citizens of the world.

5 Reasons Being ‘Good in Bed’ Won’t Make Him Put a Ring on It

I had a knack for dating men who didn’t want to marry. Which was fine, because I didn’t want to marry. Until I did.

When I was dating my last commitment-phobic man he made it very clear that sex was his top priority in a relationship and that he was terrified that marriage would put an end to it.

So for the entirety of our five-year relationship I said “no” to sex only once.

I remember the fallout from that as if it happened yesterday instead of 15 years ago.

My man rolled on his back in bed and began kicking his feet and tantruming like a 2-year-old, “I want sex, I want sex, I want sex!”

The truth is it was a funny moment between us. He meant to sound like a toddler begging for a cookie and I found it endearing. We had our good moments.

But I think we were particularly close on that one night (an oasis in a shitastrophy) and I felt, like a contestant on American Idol, that I was safe till next week.

The rest of the time I worried that, as a tall, strapping, handsome fireman, my beau might give in to the temptation of all the badge bunnies sniffing around the station during his overnight shifts.

I hoped, by being an all-night convenience store for sex, he might stay faithful (he didn’t). And I also wanted him to know that he could count on non-stop sex if he married me (he didn’t).

Here’s why using sex to audition for wife will fail every time:

1. Men who are afraid of commitment will be able to smell something rotten in Denmark (even when you’ve showered).

Commitment-phobes are like blood hounds when it comes to agendas. They can smell you gaming them over any camouflaging pheromones you emit.

2. Men who are afraid of commitment often feel smothered by having sex with you.

And they will react against being smothered by having sex with the next available female in order to rid themselves of the obligation sex makes them feel toward you.

3. Having sex with a man in order to convince him you’d be a good wife puts too much pressure on the lovemaking.

Can you say performance anxiety? It’s incredibly difficult to actually enjoy sex when you’re using it as a weapon. And no matter how well you can fake an orgasm, a man can tell when you aren’t authentically turned on.

4. Having sex with a man to convince him to marry you is self-abandonment.

Whenever we give another person power over us we lose ourselves and often abandon our principals and the things we value.

There’s nothing less appealing than a woman who has no self-esteem and is willing to ditch herself to win a man.

5. If you do manage to convince a commitment-phobe to marry you based on the gymnastic, never-ending sex you provide, you will have to keep this up forever.

Do you really want to be married to someone you have to turn somersaults for day-after-day, year-after-year for fear if you don’t he’ll want out?

Now add to that the pressures of raising children and making a living.

There’s no doubt that sex is incredibly important to a good, healthy marriage, but man cannot live on lust fulfillment alone. Building your marriage on sex is like building it on the Louisiana bog of Naked and Afraid. It’s bound to sink and someone’s bound to be killed by a water mocassin. Yes, that could happen.

Peter Pan Moms: We Won’t Grow Up

We Peter Pan Moms make up the first-generation of hot moms, MILFS and cougars — congratulations and condolences to us. Take, for example, the Facebook timeline. We Peter Pan Moms update our vanity avatars more often than we floss, alternating between a youthful headshot taken from above (always from above) and a peek at our latest ink. We channel our rock star within on the dance floor, at the karaoke mic and sometimes party a bit too much like it’s 1999. Make that 1989. Sun City has no idea what’s coming, but they better amp up their WiFi, add tattoo artist to their spas and start training their DJs.

Once a vanity reserved for celebrities, now the illusion of forever (lifted, rejuvenated, de-veined) young falls within reach of the masses. During their “hot mom” years, our grandmas wore modest dresses and stockings. Mom wore “mom jeans” because that’s how jeans came — high in the waist and ample in the hips. The only women in America getting routine plastic surgery lived in Beverly Hills or could afford to. As kids, we occasionally begged off of our mothers (and fathers) wardrobes, but they certainly didn’t beg off ours. Maybe — maybe — a classmate mentioned your mom as pretty, but MILF? An unthinkable moniker, and If anyone did think about it, they certainly did not celebrate it aloud. We called our friends’ parents Mr. and Mrs.; The line between parent and child, teen and adult, and those who should and should not wear mini-dresses seemed obvious. When Dirty Dancing came out, we certainly hadn’t seen our parents doing anything remotely like it at Auntie’s wedding.

I fear that Peter Pan Moms — as we joust with standards of hardbodies, wrinkle-free foreheads, full manes of no-greys (and nary-a-hair-elsewhere )– have created our own hawt purgatory, NeverNeverEVERLand. I foresee us as centenarians in NeverNeverEverLand, clenching our hot mom sashes and stilettos in arthritic joints, instead of gracefully handing them over to the next generation in exchange for Clark’s Wallabees and elastic waist pants.

Our grandmas couldn’t conceive of this NeverNeverEVER Land. Our moms fought too hard to be taken seriously to risk wearing pants that showed crack. Legs got shaved — maybe armpits — but if my crotch-height memories serve me correctly, our moms worried even less about their bikini lines than they did about the rubber swim caps suctioned to their natural salt-and-pepper hairdos. While sometimes I revel in my Peter Pan Mom rebellion of middle age, I also wonder how long I can keep it up. Instead of using our real life matriarchs as role models or adopting the Women’s Studies 101 ideals we once tormented our loved ones with around the dinner table, Peter Pan Mom desperately searches for ways to look less and less MOM.

My mom has always dressed and behaved with dignity and class (at least in public and so far as I know). She exercises for good health, not for hard abs (which neither she nor any prior generation sought, nor even found attractive). Growing up, I never heard her complain about her body, nor lament its aging. I hope that we Peter Pan Moms figure out how to marry our vanity with our aging bodies, obsess less over how our bodies look and shift our focus on to gratitude for how well they (hopefully) still work. I hope we learn to share the spotlight and know when the time comes to sit in the audience and clap when Tinkerbell publishes her first blog post. Most of all, I hope that we embrace the softness of our laps, while our Wendys Michaels and Johns still want to sit in them.

Bill Cosby Says He Won’t Answer To ‘Innuendos’

Before Bill Cosby took the stage at a sold-out theater in Melbourne, Florida on Friday night, he broke his silence on the recent sexual assault allegations.

While speaking with Florida Today, the 77-year-old comedian addressed the claims and revealed his reason for silence. “I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn’t have to answer to innuendos,” Cosby told the publication. “People should fact check. People shouldn’t have to go through that and shouldn’t answer to innuendos.”

In addition to the Florida Today interview, Cosby’s lawyer, Marty Singer, released a statement to ABC News on Friday about his client:

“This situation is an unprecedented example of the media’s breakneck rush to run stories without any corroboration or adherence to traditional journalistic standards. Over and over again, we have refuted these new unsubstantiated stories with documentary evidence, only to have a new uncorroborated story crop up out of the woodwork. When will it end?”

Cosby has previously refused to answer questions regarding allegations that he sexually assaulted several women. In an interview with NPR’s Scott Simon broadcast on Nov. 15, Cosby shook his head and remained silent when asked to respond to the claims. Cosby also refused to respond to the AP’s Brett Zongker regarding the allegations, saying, “No, no, we don’t answer that.” He later requested, still on the record, that the AP interview be “scuttled.”

For more from Cosby, head to Florida Today. Singer’s full statement is available at ABC.

The unlikely New York City landmark known as 5Pointz has been at the center of controversy ever since landlord Jerry Wolkoff whitewashed the complex’s walls last fall, destroying layers of graffiti art painted there with his permission. Now Wolkoff tells HuffPost he plans to use the name “5Pointz” for the two new condos going up in place of the former graffiti “temple.”

“I’m trying to get the name registered,” Wolkoff told HuffPost in a phone interview Friday. Earlier this week, a report surfaced of a bid Wolkoff submitted in March to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, which was denied due to a preexisting real estate development in California with a similar name. In the call to HuffPost, Wolkoff clarified that he plans to challenge the denial.

The move makes one more bullet point in a list of grievances for the key artists and activists associated with 5Pointz, for whom Wolkoff became an enemy after his dramatic overnight whitewashing. One, Marie Cecile Flageul, acted as the group’s press liaison when plans were underway to sway the city to preserve the graffiti-smothered building. Speaking to a reporter this week, Flageul accused Wolkoff of trying to “bank off our name.” She called the name-grab “ironic,” asserting that “the same corporation which single-handedly destroyed all the artwork known as 5Pointz” is “trying to capitalize” on its cache.

Speaking to HuffPost, Wolkoff insisted that the name is his to use. He contested an earlier New York Times report that seems to attribute the moniker “5Pointz” to Jason “Meres One” Cohen, a street artist who acted as the lead “curator” for the site in its heyday.

Wolkoff says he collaborated with Cohen on the name, which is meant to signify a meeting point of the city’s five boroughs. “We were talking, and we decided to use this thing of 5Pointz,” Wolkoff said.

He is also adamant that the name should be his to reuse in the context of the two condo buildings set to rise. Bringing up New York’s Museum of Natural History, he hypothesized that “if they took that down and put up another building with more or less the same stuff inside, you’d still call it the Museum of Natural History.”

The new condos will by no means duplicate the function of 5Pointz, a decrepit building that for much of its later life did not meet city codes. For years, the building was legendary for its studios — cheaper than any for miles. When a staircase collapsed in 2009, the primary allure of the complex was its external facade, which artists of all ages tagged with spray paint.

Wolkoff says the upcoming $ 400 million luxury development will channel the ethos of the old 5Pointz, calling the property’s second incarnation “the same” as its first. He plans to designate a tagging wall and studios inside the building, both features of which have been preemptively derided by artists as pale echoes of their soulful originals. Critics “don’t believe that I’m going to bring them back,” Wolkoff said, referencing the artists who once flocked to his property. “But they will be back.”
