Could Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott be the answer for the Chicago Bears?

Where there's smoke with a rumor like this, there's usually fire, and with Prescott's camp demanding a contract that will make him one of the highest-paid, if not the highest-paid, quarterbacks in the NFL, there's at least a chance they will listen to trade offers if a new deal seems unreachable. Dallas would have to place the franchise tag on Prescott before moving him and a potential suitor would need to have a long-term deal in place before pulling the trigger, which means interested clubs need a whole lot of cap space. There's also the issue of trade compensation.

Bird-inspired wings could help small drones fly four times longer

Bird-inspired wings could help small drones fly four times longerSmall drones seldom last more than half an hour in the air due to their inefficiency. They frequently have short, thick wings that help them survive wind gusts, but are terrible for range. However, scientists might have a way to make drones last: borrow another cue from nature. Researchers at Brown University and EPFL have developed a bird-inspired wing design that can deliver just under 3 hours of flight for a tiny 100g (3.5oz) drone, four times what you'd get from comparable fliers, without sacrificing stability. Effectively, it recognizes that common wisdom surrounding wings doesn't apply when the wingspan is a foot or less.

Those whispers only are growing louder, as the Raiders will consider moving on from Carr this offseason in favor of a quarterback with more upside and big-play potential, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported Sunday, citing several team sources. While Gruden and Carr have a solid relationship, per La Canfora, the Raiders coach reportedly has issues with the veteran's inability to extend plays with his legs and has fallen in love with the athletic college quarterbacks who have taken the NFL by storm.

NBA rumors: What Warriors could get in potential D’Angelo Russell trade

If the Warriors decide to investigate the market, some league executives believe it's not unreasonable to think the Warriors could get another first-round pick plus a quality role player for Russell, especially if they're able to construct a deal where they take back salary. It probably will be hard for the Warriors to take back salary because of the hard-cap situation, but they do have a little wiggle room at their disposal. Russell can't be traded until Dec. 15, and it's possible that the Warriors won't even consider parting ways with him until they find out in mid-May where their first-round pick lands in the lottery (yes, we are assuming that Golden State ultimately will keep the top-20 protected first-rounder they sent to Brooklyn in the Russell-Kevin Durant sign-and-trade).

Vudu could be up for sale, if Walmart finds an interested buyer

Vudu could be up for sale, if Walmart finds an interested buyerJust shy of a decade after Wal-mart bought Vudu, The Information reports that the retail giant is "considering" selling its digital video on-demand store. There's no word on how far along in the process any potential deal is, or if will actually happen, but anyone can see that the service made more sense a few years ago, when it was one of the best ways to access DVD digital copies linked to an Ultraviolet locker. That went right along with in-store disc sales, and enabled a business selling digital copies to people who wanted an easier way to watch movies they'd already purchased on discs.

Now, Ultraviolet is dead and Disney's Movies Anywhere setup has largely taken over that space. While it also connects to Vudu, it's not exactly what Wal-mart had in mind back in 2010. Increasingly, video watching hours are devoted to subscription streaming services, which are using inflated budgets to swallow up exclusive content. There was a rumored plan to try and do the same thing for Vudu, but that appears to have fallen through, while Apple, Disney, Comcast/NBC and AT&T/Warner/HBO are all preparing to launch new subscription options.

In a statement to The Information, a Walmart spokesperson cited the service's 100 million-strong install base, and said "We're constantly having and [are] open to conversations with new and existing partners to explore opportunities for continued growth; however, we never share details of those discussions."

Maybe a potential buyer will see benefit in a service that many people already use to get movies and TV shows, with some included free options, a small selection of original content like Mr. Mom, and a history that stretches back to 2007 when it launched on a $ 400 set-top box.

We’re praying for the victims, the community and our associates, as well as the first responders who are on the scene. We’re working closely with law enforcement and will update as appropriate. 
Following the shootings in El Paso, Tex., and Dayton, Ohio — and let’s not forget the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Gilroy, Calif., where “only” three people were murdered — anyone who believes in God has surely said a prayer for the dead; the injured; their loved ones; their communities — specifically, the Hispanic community that was so perversely targeted in El Paso; the first responders, and maybe even for the villains and potential future villains who, for whatever reason, are filled with the hate and rage that leads them to commit such atrocities. But prayers without action are at best hollow and at worst hypocritical.

It’s not a media hub like New York or a manufacturing center like L.A., but it is a hotbed of fashion disruptors following historic blue jeans maker Levi Strauss & Co. and casual Friday pioneer Gap in changing the way people dress and shop.
What sets many of San Francisco’s fashion brands apart is that they are direct-to-consumer, mission-driven and digitally enabled from inception to tackle industry challenges, including sizing and transparency. Many are also led by female chief executive officers or creative directors designing into a polished, functional aesthetic that’s resonating in this new feminist era.
Now that these start-ups are coming of age (and setting $ 1 billion-plus public offerings), they are attracting more talent, including designers, stylists and editorial directors, and a new creative class is starting to emerge in San Francisco.
Everlane has ambitions to be the next Gap, only with a transparent supply chain. ThirdLove, the size-inclusive, female-first lingerie maker, is taking on Victoria’s Secret. Cuyana is selling attainable luxury ready-to-wear and leather goods with the mantra “fewer, better things.” Meanwhile, fashion-tech brands Stitch Fix and online resale giant The RealReal are reshaping the shopping experience.
“We’re not a fashion-forward city, but that’s OK.

Your Spouse’s Unhealthy Habits Could Be Making You Fat, Study Says

(Reuters Health) – Need another reason to blame weight gain on your marriage? When one spouse becomes obese, the other’s risk of obesity almost doubles, a U.S. study suggests.

“Normal weight people whose spouses went from being normal weight to obese were more likely to become obese,” said Laura Cobb, who led the study as a researcher at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

“This suggests that changes in one spouse are likely to also be reflected in the other spouse, likely because of similar changes in diet, physical activity or other behaviors that impact obesity,” Cobb said by email.

Plenty of research already links marriage and weight gain, and scientists have firmly established the connection between obesity and heart disease, diabetes, and certain cancers.

What the current study adds is a fresh take on how couples may gain weight in tandem, insight that might help shape more effective obesity prevention and treatment efforts targeting couples, Cobb and colleagues note in the American Journal of Epidemiology.

Researchers followed almost 4,000 couples for up to 25 years, starting between 1987 and 1989. After an initial exam, they had three follow-up visits roughly three years apart, followed by a fifth exam between 2011 and 2013.

At the start of the study, 23 percent of the men and 25 percent of the women were obese.

Non-obese men whose wives became obese between visits in the study were 78 percent more likely to become obese during that period than they would have been had their wives not gained so much weight, the study found.

Having a husband become obese was linked to an 89 percent increased risk of developing obesity for their wives.

Not many people who started out obese lost enough weight to be considered no longer obese, but when they did, their spouse was also more likely to become non-obese.

Shortcomings of the study include the long stretch of time that elapsed between the fourth and fifth exams and the large proportion of people who died or left the study before the final visit, the authors acknowledge.

It’s not unusual for married couples to forge common habits over time that influence their weight, said Ivanka Prichard, a weight loss researcher at Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia.

“Over time, similarities in diet, particularly any unhealthy aspects, may lead to weight changes,” Prichard, who wasn’t involved in the study, said by email. “There are also a range of pressures in life that could impact this such as having children, work, shared health knowledge, time or finances.”

Like unhealthy habits, though, positive lifestyle choices can also be contagious in a marriage, said Debra Umberson, director of the Population Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin.

“When married people get in shape or lose weight, it’s often because one spouse takes the lead and urges the other spouse along,” Umberson, who wasn’t involved in the study, said by email. “Even if the person not taking the lead is resistant, over time they will probably be influenced by the kinds of food and activities their spouse is involved with – especially if the person taking the lead is the one who purchases groceries or prepares meals.”

In The Future, You Could Control Your Shoes’ Color With Your Phone

Black sneaker not really gelling with your outfit? Pop open an app on your smartphone and add a streak of yellow.

+rehabstudio, a company that makes innovative marketing campaigns, recently unveiled its concept for the “Shift Sneaker,” a shoe comprised of material that can communicate with your smartphone and shift colors on demand.


A look at how the Shift Sneaker would work. (Source: +rehabstudio)

“Shift Sneaker explores what might be possible in the near future based on various existing materials, which currently only have industrial applications, and forecasted materials like phase change fibres and meta-materials, which are still to be made,” Mike Veitch, Managing Partner at +rehabstudio, told The Huffington Post via email.

In theory, there are a lot of clever applications for a smart shoe that could change colors on a dime. +rehabstudio posted a few ideas on its website: You could take a selfie to automatically swap the color of your shoes to match your clothing; a “running pack” could make the sneakers glow different colors depending on whether or not you’re on pace; a “cycling pack” would keep folks safe at night with bright, glowing colors.

Don’t get too excited, though. The sneakers are still very much a theoretical concept. You won’t see them until phase-change fibers and meta-materials are actually manufacturable for consumer products, Veitch said. But when that happens, he imagines these high-tech kicks might cost about as much as an average shoe — and generate more money from color packs on your smartphone, of course.

For now, wearable technology like the Apple Watch or Android Wear smartwatches might represent the best opportunity for chameleonic fashion. The DressWatch app lets you snap a picture of your clothes and change your smartwatch’s face to match the color palette, for example.

And “adaptive” surfaces might soon crop up in the world around you. Veitch told HuffPost that +rehabstudio is currently making smart storefronts a reality, meaning you could get a personalized experience the moment you walk past a shop window. Neat!

How Gay Marriage Could Improve Straight Marriage

SCOTUS’s decision to make gay marriage a constitutional right in all states is a landmark victory for the gay rights movement. But could it also be a victory for the institution of marriage in and of itself? Justice Ruth Ginsberg repeatedly argued that gay marriage is part of a civil rights continuum. But could it also be part of a continuum that improves what it means to be in a committed relationship?

“Marriage today is not what it was under the common law tradition, under the civil law tradition,” said Ginsburg. “Marriage was a relationship of a dominant male to a subordinate female that ended as a result of this court’s decision in 1982 when Louisiana’s Head and Master Rule was struck down.”

“Head and Master” laws permitted a husband to have final say regarding all household decisions and jointly owned property without his wife’s knowledge or consent, until 1979 when Louisiana became the final state to repeal them.

Ginsberg repeatedly rejected the notion that extending marriage rights would somehow weaken the institution or deprive straight couples. “All of the incentives, all of the benefits that marriage affords would still be available,” said Ginsburg. “So you’re not taking away anything from heterosexual couples.”



Ginsberg is a hero in the struggle for civil and sexual rights. But hearing her arguments my friends and I would quietly chuckle over what wasn’t being said — the possibility that gay marriage could have an positive effect on heterosexual unions. Marriage between straight people comes with a long list of rigid status quo rules and assumptions. Whereas the LGBT community have more personal equality and freedom in their partnerships but no legal equality and freedom. Heterosexual marriages have been entangled in laws that give males far more privilege and rights, with wives treated like property. Whereas gay unions historically been formed from a more equal standing.

What ultimately forced me to crawl out of my status quo, hetero marriage box was one of its primary tenets: monogamy. After 20 years of being happily married, I found myself in love with my husband and also another man. My gay friends were the only people in my life who offered empathy — and, more important, saluted my creativity when I opened my marriage. We created a newfangled Brady Bunch of chosen family — my husband, his new girlfriend, my new lover, and all our kids — my gay friends applauded my innovation and gumption. They weren’t terrified, judgmental or confused — as many of my straight married friends were — they were congratulatory.

Being creative in your relationship, having to set up your own “rules” and agreements, is somewhat banal among gay people. Not having the luxury of clear-cut rights mandated by the courts, many of my gay friends have sat down with lawyers to create legal documents to protect their property and loved ones. They wanted to have a definitive say in various what-if scenarios that hetero couples in traditional marriages are automatically awarded by the simple act of signing a piece of legal paper. That act in itself — having to secure your own liberties — raises your consciousness around your values and your relationships. Drawing up legal documents — or even just jotting down notes on a legal pad from your couch like I did — forces you to really define who you love and what your relationship philosophy is.

It took me several years before I sat down with my husband and asked him if we could open our marriage. When I finally did, I was startled by the fact that I had been following and even hypnotized by a societal set of rules that were not even a part of my authentic value system. I had been asleep, dutifully engaging in society’s presumption of what a “proper” marriage is, as if in a trance. Much of my identity, worldview, and lifestyle have origins in thinking outside of cultural norms and traditions. Why had the institution of marriage seemed so untouchable?

I guess you could say I’m bisexual, but I prefer to just think of myself as sexual. I love the ambiguity of being queer — a term which encompasses several aspects of sexuality — but I honestly don’t feel hip enough to sport the term. But when I created the above-mentioned situation in which I got to have both men in my life, I felt wholly aligned with my queer collective of friends.

They were the only group of people who really understood my decisions and thinking. Even after divorcing my first husband, they understood that he is still someone I dearly love and who will always be chosen family to me. Because homophobia is so wretched and life-threatening, many gay people remain family to former lovers. They don’t chuck them on the pile of what straight people call “failed relationships.” In the gay community, longevity is not the only measurement of a relationship’s success. And in gay culture (at least of my generation, and I’m in my 50s) there is a loyalty and understanding that love is enduring and supersedes a marriage license, or lack thereof.

Not every gay relationship exemplifies nirvana — they too are afflicted with conflicts, hurt, and even domestic violence. But, quite frankly, gay people have been thinking out of the marriage box for centuries. Although they lacked the heterosexual privileges, tax write-offs, basic rights of parenthood, and medical visits, they did have one advantage: an opportunity to create their own relationship doctrines. Ginsberg argued that gay marriage would not change straight marriage — but in my progressive enclave of friends, we all hope that it does.

Study Says This Could Be One Way To Prevent Unintended Pregnancies

By: Agata Blaszczak Boxe, LiveScience Contributing Writer
Published: 06/17/2015 04:39 PM EDT on LiveScience

Young women who talk with a doctor about long-term contraception may have fewer unintended pregnancies, a new study suggests.

Research has shown that intrauterine devices (IUDs) and progestin implants — which can prevent pregnancy for years after they are inserted — are more effective at preventing pregnancy than other, more widely used methods such as condoms or birth control pills. However, health providers tend to be less familiar with longer-term contraception, and do not routinely mention it when talking with patients, the researchers said.

Considering that about 50 percent of pregnancies in the U.S. are unintended, the researchers wanted to see whether training health providers on how to educate young women about IUDs and implants would affect the number of unintended pregnancies.

“There has been heavy reliance in the United States on the pill and condoms for young people,” study author Cynthia Harper, a professor of obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive sciences at the University of California, San Francisco, said in a statement. But “it’s easy for people to forget to use these methods, which can lead to accidental pregnancies.”

In the study, the researchers looked at 40 Planned Parenthood health centers across the U.S. They randomly chose half of the centers to receive staff training on providing counseling for women and inserting IUDs and implants, while the other half of the staffs continued to provide contraceptive care in the same manner as before. [Birth Control Quiz: Test Your Contraception Knowledge]

In the clinics where the training program was implemented, 71 percent of the providers who received the training later reported that they talked about IUDs and implants with patients, compared with 39 percent of the providers in the comparison group. In the clinics that received the training, 28 percent of women ages 18 to 25 chose IUDs or implants during their visit, compared with 17 percent of women in the other group.

Moreover, the researchers found that at the clinics where the training was done, the rate of unintended pregnancies over the course of a year was 8 per 100 women seen at the clinic, compared with 15 unintended pregnancies per 100 women in the comparison group.

However, there was no effect of the training on pregnancy rates among the women who were seeking birth control counseling after an abortion, the researchers noted. The researchers said these women may have been discouraged by the cost of the long-term contraception devices.

Previous surveys have shown that 38 percent of physicians in the U.S. who talk with their patients about contraceptives offer IUDs to adolescents. About half (53 percent) offer IUDs to women who have not given birth, and 25 percent offer them right after a woman has had an abortion, even though the devices are safe to use after an abortion, the researchers said.

As for the effectiveness of IUDs and implants compared with other methods, research has shown that less than 1 percent of women who use an IUD or an implant get pregnant over the course of a year, while about 9 percent of women on the pill and 18 percent of women whose male partners use condoms will get pregnant.

There are certain benefits and side effects of using IUDs and implants, the researchers said. For example, women who smoke or have certain health conditions are advised against taking estrogen-containing combined contraceptive pills because of an increased risk of blood clots and stroke, and so for these women, IUDs and implants are better alternatives because the devices do not contain estrogen. Both IUDs and implants only contain progestin, whereas the copper IUD does not contain any hormones, Harper said.

The side effects of using both IUDs and implants may involve irregular menstrual bleeding, and in the case of the copper IUD, heavier menstrual bleeding, Harper told Live Science.

The new study was published today (June 16) in the journal The Lancet.

A Political Parable: The Little Bush That Could — The Roots to the White House and Beyond

Gather around, my children, for a tale that’s sure to warm the heart. Watch the lay of the land unfold as a not-so-exotic vegetation emerges from among us, coming from nowhere to a position of leadership. It’s sure to encourage us all to pursue our dreams and never give up hope.

2015-06-11-1434054370-3471484-Elm.jpg

Once upon a time, there lived a nondescript bush. Lonely and unrecognized amidst the more colorful vegetation, he dreamed one day of becoming a bush in his own right. For too long he had stood in the shadow of bush the elder, a bush transformed in people’s eyes into a mighty elm. Each day, he looked up at that great tree, sobbing softly to himself: “I am somebody, yes, I am… Someday I too can attain that same greatness of stature.”

But a number of obstacles stood in his path. Though the bushes had all been raised in a hothouse, they all suffered from the illusion that they were actually part of the forest primeval. His younger sibling, the shrub, had always stressed his rural roots. After all, where does one find most bushes — certainly not in urbane, metropolitan areas.

In 1910, the major leagues of baseball, created and subsidized the minor leagues, generally locating them in small cities and towns. Thus were born the “bush leagues” and “bush towns,” along with an association with things “mediocre,” “second rate,” “amateur,” and “unsophisticated;” in short, the “inferior reaches.”

2015-06-11-1434054663-7290931-Bush3.jpg

Shrub had embraced this definition. But it was a real problem for our aspiring bush — how to kick that image.

Adding to his woes was that when folks got fatigued, exhausted, sapped, or pooped out, they said they were “bushed” — perhaps from the 19th century meaning, “lost in the woods.” So it was that the actions of his brother, shrub, had left folks “bushed out.”

Adding further to his woes was that our little bush, like others in the family, had a speaking style, described as “bushwa(h),” causing him to sound “nonsensical and pretentious,” “exaggerated,” and “deceitful;” i.e., “full of baloney.”

Coined in about 1900, “bushwa” derives from an old word, “bodwash,” meaning “bosh” or “trash.” It, in turn, derives from the old French bois de vache, “cow’s wood or “dried manure.” We don’t use “bushwa,” very much nowadays, preferring instead to call ’em the way we see’z ’em.

Poor little bush. He wanted so much to have everyone root for him, meaning they would be a regular supporter of his, to cheer him on. This “root,” incidentally, comes from the British dialect route, “to roar or bellow.”

Encouraged by his supporters and undeterred by the obstacles, he set off on his trek — bright-eyed and — what else but — bushy tailed — “eager and energetic,” “in fine fettle,” “wide awake,” and “prepared for any situation.”

2015-06-11-1434055115-4121761-Bush.jpg

We’ve been bright-eyed and bushy tailed since the 1930s, alluding to the seemingly attentive behavior of squirrels, chipmunks and other animals, as displayed in their wide eyes, quick movement, and high degree of nervous energy,.

But a funny thing happened on the way to his goal. A bunch of rival vegetation lay in ambush for him from the old French embusche, from embuscher, literally meaning, “to hide in the bushes.” It was an insidious plot, the ultimate roots of which are in the Latin insidere, “to lie in wait.”

In plain English, they were hoping — you guessed it — to bushwhack him. Our very first bushwhackers, got their name by pulling their boats up parts of the Mississippi River by grasping at bushes along the bank. Today, bushwhacking is back in style; though the grasping of straws, rather than bushes, is more the norm.

There was lots of bushwhacking during the Civil War by the soldiers who hid in the bushes, wood, or thickets as part of their guerrilla tactics. Later, bushwhacking came to mean “making one’s way through unbroken forest,” by pushing bushes aside or breaking them.

Undaunted by such stalkers, and taking advantage of the greenery in which he hid and from which he received sustenance, the little bush moved on. Weed-whacking the competition, he made his way out of the woods to the big horticultural Show on a certain magic Tuesday in March. This would be his telling encounter. Everyone in the forest was following his progress. Some were fir him, others agin. All the firs were on pins and needles awaiting the result.

Could the little bush really do it? Would he go on from there to his final resting place? Would he finally make it to his ultimate destination… and at last sink his roots into the fabled rose garden?

A Voice That Could Stir an Army: Fannie Lou Hamer and the Rhetoric of the Black Freedom Movement

A Voice That Could Stir an Army: Fannie Lou Hamer and the Rhetoric of the Black Freedom Movement


A sharecropper, a warrior, and a truth-telling prophet, Fannie Lou Hamer (1917-1977) stands as a powerful symbol not only of the 1960s black freedom movement, but also of the enduring human struggle against oppression. A Voice That Could Stir an Army is a rhetorical biography that tells the story of Hamer’s life by focusing on how she employed symbols- images, words, and even material objects such as the ballot, food, and clothing-to construct persuasive public personae, to influence audiences, and to effect social change. Drawing upon dozens of newly recovered Hamer texts and recent interviews with Hamer’s friends, family, and fellow activists, Maegan Parker Brooks moves chronologically through Hamer’s life. Brooks recounts Hamer’s early influences, her intersection with the black freedom movement, and her rise to prominence at the 1964 Democratic National Convention. Brooks also considers Hamer’s lesser-known contributions to the fight against poverty and to feminist politics before analyzing how Hamer is remembered posthumously. The book concludes by emphasizing what remains rhetorical about Hamer’s biography, using the 2012 statue and museum dedication in Hamer’s hometown of Ruleville, Mississippi, to examine the larger social, political, and historiographical implications of her legacy. The sustained consideration of Hamer’s wide-ranging use of symbols and the reconstruction of her legacy provided within the pages of A Voice That Could Stir an Army enrich understanding of this key historical figure. This book also demonstrates how rhetorical analysis complements historical reconstruction to explain the dynamics of how social movements actually operate.

What Life Could Have Been

I almost wasn’t born. I almost didn’t get adopted. I almost got delivered to the wrong family at the airport. I almost didn’t get to where I am today. But here I am, happy and grateful. My story starts in Romania in 1992, where I was immediately handed off to an orphanage after birth. Then three years later, I left for the United States to live with the only people I’ve ever called family.

For me, there were always stories that danced in my head about my secret past that resembled a princess fairytale. None of those stories were ever true, but I’ve always been imaginative. My imagination and my impulsiveness have always gotten me in trouble, so when I was 17, I secretly contacted the adoption lawyer who made my adoption possible. At the time, discussing adoption records with minors was prohibited, so my parents were notified.

The process of finding my birth parents taught me so much about myself, adoption and family. Here are four things I learned from the experience:

1. Great parents are those who tell their children how special they are and support their dreams, even if they don’t completely understand them. These are my parents, and they’ve raised me to believe that I’ve always been wanted and I’m special. They’ve been so gracious to help me find my voice and story. They were the ones who didn’t let me quit when I had difficulties learning how to read and write.

My parents understood that I was extremely curious about my past and agreed to take the steps to help me find out more about where I came from. Within a year, we had tickets to Romania and we were met by a friend of the adoption lawyer who worked as our translator and guide.

2. Nothing can prepare you for the realization of what your life could have been. Driving in a manual transmission vehicle along dirt roads and hilly terrain, past men on haystacks and stubborn cows, was not ideal. When we pulled up to the village, a boy on a horse led us to their home. We followed in the car. I was petrified, scared and sad. We then stopped in front of a small fence made out of thick tree branches. Three people greeted us: a man, a woman, and a little girl. None of them looked like me, and yet the the little girl and I immediately connected. The woman was overly eager and the man was reserved. These people would have been my direct family, if they had not given me up at birth. They told us about their lives and why I had been given to an orphanage.

3. People can be happy in their current conditions, even if they don’t align with your perception of happiness. I was surprised to see that they were happy in their home, which was a small brick structure of two rooms.Their hands were leathery from hard work under the grueling sun. They had livestock on the side of the house and a patch of olive trees and grapevines out back. It took me a while to understand that circumstances are not as important as being with the ones who you love. Their way of life was much different than mine, and seeing the remarkable difference was important. That could have been me.

Could Beyonce Be the New Face of Givenchy?

After Beyoncé was seen posing on a Brooklyn rooftop with Givenchy creative director Riccardo Tisci, the fashion rumor mill has started buzzing once again. Might she be the latest star to lend her face to the brand’s ad campaigns?

There’s no question that Beyoncé and the fashion house are fans of each other: The pop icon has worn Givenchy to the Met Gala for the past four years (including her see-through pick from last Monday), and the label has designed costumes for the On the Run and Mrs. Carter tours.

Beyond the fact that there’s already a lot of brand love in place, Givenchy’s made it a thing to pick unexpected campaign stars. Eschewing big-name supers or up-and-coming models, the house has recently worked with Donatella Versace and Julia Roberts. And while it wouldn’t be crazy at all to see the official announcement come through, let’s all remember this is currently a lot of speculation. The duo could have been working on an editorial shoot or images for an upcoming album. Or, honestly, just having the most fun friend day ever because that’s what you can do when you’re living the fabulous life of Beyoncé.

DKNY Could Be Looking for a New Creative Director

DKNY CREATIVE HEAD: Could DKNY be looking for a new creative director? Industry sources say a search is on for a person to head the design team at the label, which is owned by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton. Caroline Brown, chief executive officer of Donna Karan International, is said to be tapping into the young designer market to come up with a candidate for the role. Public School, Prabal Gurung and Andrea Lieberman, designer of A.L.C., are among the names that have been bandied about. Lieberman had no comment, as did Gurung and a spokeswoman for DKI. Asked whether he was considering the position, Maxwell Osborne, design partners with Dao-Yi Chow in Public School, said, “not at this moment,” adding that they have enough going on with their own line. Jane Chung is the longtime executive vice president of design at DKNY.

Kanye West May Design Washington Wizards’ Uniforms, But We Think He Could Change A Lot More

In some of the most unexpected style news as of late, Kanye West might be designing NBA jerseys sometime soon. Kanye’s friend, Wale, who, according to Vanity Fair is a “creative liaison” for the Washington Wizards, recently stirred up rumors that West would help design the Wizards new basketball uniforms. Say what?!

Sure, West has style cred to his name: he’s appeared on the cover of Vogue, redone Kim’s wardrobe a few times and starred in Balmain’s Spring/Summer 2015 campaign. The man even showed his own fashion line at Paris Fashion Week, to not much fanfare.

So if the rumors are true, we’re envisioning Kanye’s got big changes in mind, such as:

Better jerseys What’s that jersey, Margiela? It is now. We predict that with Kanye’s designer connections (think Balmain, Giuseppi Zanotti) the new jerseys will be fly as f*** and probably look something like this:
revolve clothing

New sneaks Obviously, everyone will wear Yeezy’s Red Octobers even though they might be a little heavy to play in. Put your Jordans away!
kanye west shoes

New warmup sweats: Sweats MUST look good in warmups when you’re trying to intimidate another team, so a nice, neutral gray is a good way to get your game face on. Gold chain optional.
kanye west

Sweeter socks: Most athletes like to wear Nike Elite socks, as they’re known for their comfort and support level during matches. But with Kanye’s Kardashian connects, we predict the Washington Wizards will be wearing Arthur George aka Rob Kardashian’s upscale sock line.

Mandatory hair cuts: Hair is yet another way to intimidate opponents in the NBA (think Dennis Rodman). Why not try shocking other players with a new cut? “Hey LeBron, look at MY hairline.”

In Real Life, The ‘Girls’ Could Not Afford Their New York Lifestyles

Hannah, Marnie, Shoshanna, and Jessa may not drop hundreds on Manohlo Blahniks and brunch like the “Sex and the City” characters. But that doesn’t mean their lives don’t cost a pretty penny.

According to a new infographic from Column Five Media and the money-saving app Digit, the girls of “Girls” would not really be able to afford their New York city lifestyles. Using real-life estimates for the salaries, rent costs, and expenses each character would have, the infographic calculates whether or not they would all stay afloat. Though Hannah and Jessa each make it in the green once or twice over the show’s three seasons, all in all, the forecast doesn’t look good:

Infographic by Column Five Media for Digit.

To be fair, the chart doesn’t have a category for “trustfunds or money given from parents,” which, though Hannah has been cut off, is probably still happening for Marnie, Jessa, and Shoshanna.

’80s Singer Tiffany Reveals What Could Have Been Her Stage Name And Why She Posed For ‘Playboy’ (VIDEO)

Only a handful of stars are well known by simply one name. Madonna. Prince. Cher. And, as fans of 1980s teen pop music would be quick to point out, Tiffany.

Three decades ago, Tiffany rose to fame with such hits as “Could’ve Been” and her famous cover of “I Think We’re Alone Now.” But long before the single-named celeb sold four million copies of her debut album, she was just 10-year-old Tiffany Darwish singing in bars in Nashville.

“I wasn’t really allowed to be there, so it was a quick little get-up-and-do-a-little-jam,” Tiffany tells “Oprah: Where Are They Now?” in the above video. “Nobody really wanted to give me a record deal. They were kind of like, ‘Come back when you’re older.'”

A few years later, Tiffany met George Tobin, who would become her producer, and her career as an artist was starting to take shape. The first order of business? Choosing her name.

“They were going to call me Tiffany Williams at first. My last name, Darwish… that’s just not acceptable!” she says with a laugh. “I kind of just said, ‘What about just Tiffany?'”

Then 15, Tiffany embarked on tour of shopping malls across America, where her sudden popularity soon created total chaos. “When it got to be bigger than life and people were actually being shoved against barricades and it wasn’t safe and we were actually being shut down, I actually started crying,” she says.

After her debut album hit No. 1 on the Billboard charts, Tiffany felt pressure to continue that momentum. “The next album, you’re rushed in the studio to re-record something and get it out there as soon as possible,” she explains. “It kind of lost some of its charm.”

She continued putting out albums, but never quite had the same commercial success as her initial release. Tiffany’s music career went through a few more ups and downs over the next several years. As she matured and evolved as an artist, Tiffany later became determined to shed the “teen queen” image that came with fame.

“I think I’ve always been put in a box, that I’m Tiffany, the girl from the mall tour,” she says. “Then I did Playboy.”

In 2002, Tiffany posed nude for the magazine, to the shock of many. But, as the 43-year-old wife and mother now explains, she had several clear reasons for doing it.

“I was actually going through a divorce — it rocks your world. It takes your confidence away,” she says. “[Posing for Playboy] was a quick confidence-booster. And, it was shock value.

“Everybody wants to talk to me,” Tiffany continues. “If I can turn that into music and go, ‘Yeah, remember that little thing I do…?’, it works.”

“Oprah: Where Are They Now?” airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET, and returns with all-new episodes in February. Find OWN on your TV.

This Could Be The Luckiest ‘Price Is Right’ Contestant Ever

And that’s how it’s done, people.

Monday’s “The Price Is Right” ended in stunning fashion as the last contestant of the day, Ma Ghina Lorca, amazingly swept all the games and “[cleaned] up out of nowhere,” as host Drew Carey put it.

After Lorca was called from the audience, she immediately got the closest bid on a new fireplace and went to the stage. There, she won an ATV and motorcycle in Squeeze Play. That’d probably be enough for some contestants, but Lorca was just getting warmed up. At the wheel, she landed on the dollar twice, winning $ 26,000. Her opponent in the Showcase Showdown didn’t even stand a chance. Lorca bid within $ 679 of the actual retail price on her showcase, taking home new bikes, a trip to Vienna and a brand new car.

In all, Lorca won more than $ 59,000 in cash and prizes after perhaps one of the most amazing rounds of “The Price Is Right” ever played.

Here’s What The Most Controversial ‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 5 Scene Could Be About

“Game of Thrones” star Sophie Turner has said before that there will be “big changes” for her character, Sansa, in Season 5, and now she has discussed one scene that has been the center of months of speculation. In a red carpet interview at the British Independent Film Awards, Turner told a reporter about her favorite scene from the upcoming Season 5, which turned out to be a very intense one. “There was one scene that I did do which was super, super traumatic, and I love doing those scenes,” Turner said. “It was just really kind of horrible for everyone to be on set and watch.”

Besides hinting at the “darker direction” the new season will take, Turner wouldn’t reveal anything more about the scene. But it may be a contentious Sansa chapter in George R.R. Martin’s upcoming The Winds of Winter book, which Vulture hinted at last year.

Fans of the books have devoted numerous threads to discussing the chapter, and now with Turner’s interview, they are theorizing even more on Reddit. Here’s what fans are speculating:

WARNING: Serious book spoilers lie ahead.

Will Littlefinger rape Sansa?

This is one of the main theories fans have been speculating about since the reveal of the controversial chapter. When we last left off with Littlefinger in “Game of Thrones” Season 4, he had given Sansa a creepy kiss and then killed Lysa. He’s overly protective of and obsessive with Sansa, so a forced sexual encounter could make sense for his character. This is also highly likely since Turner previously said that one of her favorite scenes from “GoT” was when Sansa “nearly got raped” in Season 2.

Will Sansa kill Littlefinger?

This theory could go multiple ways. One is that Sansa could kill Littlefinger if the previous theory is true, and he attempts to rape her. Another is that Sansa could use powers of seduction to kill him, as Redditor Eitjr suggests. A third reason for Sansa to kill Littlefinger is, of course, if she discovers how he betrayed her father.

Will Sansa kill Robin Arryn?

tv show gifs

This is another very popular fan theory and also supports Turner’s description of a “super traumatic” scene. Near the end of A Feast For Crows, Robin Arryn becomes very close to Sansa (she turns into a motherly figure after his mother’s death). Littlefinger also arranges a marriage between Sansa (who is living under an alias in the books) and Harry the Heir. The theory proposes that once Sansa marries Harry, she will have reason to get rid of Robin so that her new husband can rule the Vale with her by his side. Redditor ManiyaNights also suggested ways that Sansa could kill Robin secretly, so as to possibly make Littlefinger look guilty, and thus rid of him too. We’ve already seen Sansa release some frustration toward Sweetrobin last season with that epic slap, and the killing of a child would definitely be hard to watch, even by “GoT” standards.

Will Sansa take on Lady Stoneheart’s vengeance streak?

Redditor HGSIOUHGIR put forth a very crazy theory that suggests the show’s writers will give Lady Stoneheart’s role to Sansa. Book readers, and those who follow Reddit and forums closely, will know that Lady Stoneheart is Catelyn Stark resurrected from the dead. At the end of A Storm of Swords, Lady Stoneheart goes on a killing spree against anyone and everyone who betrayed her and Robb. This would mean that if the show decided to not bring back Michelle Fairley’s Catelyn, perhaps they would have Sansa enact Lady Stoneheart’s vengeance instead, hence possibly the trauma Turner mentioned. While this sounds awesome, it also seems like a rather unlikely choice by the writers.

“Game of Thrones” will return in 2015.

Margaux Williamson: I Could See Everything

2014-05-14-AtnightIpaintedinthekitchen.jpg
At night I painted in the kitchen

When I walked into Margaux Williamson’s show, I Could See Everything at Mulherin + Pollard gallery on the Lower East Side, I thought I knew what to expect. After all, I had been given the privilege of a sneak peek of sorts over brunch in Prospect Heights with Margaux and my girlfriend a few weeks prior.

We spent that brunch and some time after passing the printed proofs for Margaux’s work across the table like trading cards — she was putting together an exhibition catalogue you can pick up at the gallery or online. My girlfriend exclaimed over the titles while I exclaimed over the technique as we played with different pairings of her paintings.

Margaux is a generous conversationalist. She’s the kind of creative friend that makes me regret the years I didn’t know her yet.

By the time we sent Margaux on her way with more ornate than helpful directions back to the Lower East Side, I felt like I knew something more about her work.

And I did. I knew that she was a painter who also makes films and who like me has a relationship with early morning that we wish we could tweak a bit. I knew that her work explored the domestic, the not yet happened, the spaces in between still life and pop culture movements. I knew that she worked in isolated parts of the world. I had a clear favorite. I’ll keep that between Margaux and me for now.

Walking into the gallery, which allows for close inspection even during a high-energy opening like Margaux’s, I was struck by the textures, the sparkly quality, and the light. The titles were scrawled in pencil on the walls beside the works. It was a perfect illustration of Margaux at play in the realm of fictional painter. And below, some words from the actual painter herself.

2014-05-14-painter.jpg
painter

> Fictional painter — why?

I made a movie and started to understand from that process how to connect the dots better. Painting is so fundamentally abstract — I am so fundamentally abstract.
I noticed that during the day, with the sun on my canvases, I was trying to paint what is hard or impossible or great about the night, and at night, I was painting the reassuringly real things that were around me — things that are hard to see at night. I made the painting “Painter”, which is of the back of my head in front of a canvas, when I was thinking of this – how ugly and bright and humble the day can be, there when reaching for so much more depth. Of course, all those things aren’t isolated in our minds, but painting is a good place to see what it looks like — to see what the rules may be for tying those things together.

> Are you an optimist or a pessimist?

I am a depressive, willful optimist.

> What was your favorite age — is it represented in your painting?

I like the present time the best. I would be so lonely to go back to another time, like not having your own face anymore. I am good at seeing the value of what is around me — the beautiful limitations of one’s time or one’s face.

> You work and live outside of New York City — does that distance factor into your life as an artist or your work?

Maybe it makes me more interested or reliant on the Internet, in literature, in communicating over email, in movies, in physically accessible mediums. Maybe if I lived here in New York I would be more engaged in and fulfilled by the live-theatre show of painting. Maybe would be the same, I don’t know, but being farther away, I have a hunger to see how everything fits together, to understand the main ideas that stand out with work I love across all mediums, how culture is connecting with people outside the centers of culture, what people are trying to do with different mediums, what they are trying to say, who they are talking to.

Probably in a lot of ways it’s a challenge, but it is also probably a gift to be in a place where no one’s really paying attention to what kind of financial or critical success you’re getting — that space can offer a lot of good silence. Being where I am, or who I am, the only measure of success that seems real to me is in colleagues (from New York or Toronto or Thunder Bay — from critics to artists to poets) whose work I love who are engaged with my work. It always feels patient and equal, I am fortunate for that.

> Is travel important to your practice?

Not really. I crave isolation sometimes, and sometimes I crave longstanding conversations with amazing people. I guess those different desires create a need to move around. In my second floor apartment in Toronto, over a shop, the front faces a busy street in a lively neighborhood where lots of people I know are always around. The back of the apartment is sort of this add on cottage-like looking structure that leads to the rooftops, there are trees in buckets there and it’s always so quiet. I try to imagine that that is enough for all your city and country needs, but I often have a longing to head 10 hours north to the woods or 10 hours south to New York City.

> How do you come up with your titles? Are they meant to serve as clues or creative offerings unto themselves?

Sometimes I would make a painting and I would think for instance, that looks like we made a new justice archway. Then I would throw out the first painting and put that title on a new image that would open up that title in a more meaningful way than an illustrative way. So, all the titles happened pretty organically. The titles were intuitive clues to myself, on where I was going, more than clues to others. At one point, I typed all the titles I was working with and put them on the wall to look at them. This sounds funny to say, but it wasn’t till I had about 60 titles that I even realized they were all led by “I” or “We” and the rarer “Us”.

> What is the role of the readymade; of pop culture in your work?

I think of Marcel Duchamp a lot in terms of time management. I like how he was kind of lazy and thought really hard about how to move around less. I’ve learned to slow down and spend more time playing in my mind and less time using my hands. It’s a pleasure, a better game.

Painting is such a medium of construction and rearrangement. I thought here to take advantage of that, to construct and rearrange the world, to take advantage of painting. But half way through making this series, once I had this framework already set, my more fundamental nature took over, the one that relates more to the world in front of me than to utopias or fantasies. I placed this new framework back on that view.

So when I came across this old 14th century Christian painting in a special edition magazine about the new Pope, I saw that image and thought, “We built a new justice archway”. I barely changed the image at all. I could have just taken the picture from the magazine and put it on the wall, but I really wanted to show the sincere attempt at moving your hands in service of trying to see things more clearly or trying to help make a new world — even if you don’t have much of an imagination for one.

I find it one of the greatest pleasures in art — when the view doesn’t change in the slightest but everything looks completely different.

> What’s your favorite season?

I feel most excited when the seasons change. I somehow never think of the past or future, so when suddenly the air is warmer and the leaves start to go, I always feel so surprised.

> What was your favorite age — is it represented in your painting?

I like the present time the best. I would be so lonely to go back to another time, like not having your own face anymore. I am good at seeing the value of what is around me — the beautiful limitations of one’s time or one’s face.

> There seems to be a tension between the tamed and untamed — whether it’s landscape or personal terrain — is there any resolution beyond resigned co-existence?

Good point.

1964 World’s Fair Towers Could Be Torn Down As NYC Debates Future Of Queens Icons

NEW YORK (AP) — They were designed for the 1964 World’s Fair as sleek, space-age visions of the future: three towers topped by flying-saucer-like platforms, and a pavilion of pillars with a suspended, shimmering roof that was billed as the “Tent of Tomorrow.”

That imagined tomorrow has come and gone. Now the structures are abandoned relics, with rusted beams, faded paint and cracked concrete. As the fair’s 50th anniversary approaches, the remains of the New York State Pavilion are getting renewed attention, from preservationists who believe they should be restored, and from critics who see them as hulking eyesores that should be torn down. Neither option would come cheap: an estimated $ 14 million for demolition and $ 32 million to $ 72 million for renovation.

“It is the Eiffel Tower of Queens,” says Matthew Silva, who’s making a documentary about the pavilion in Queens’ Flushing Meadows Corona Park, comparing it to a remnant of the 1889 Paris Exposition that was also threatened with demolition before it was saved.

Designed by famed architect Philip Johnson, the New York structures debuted with the rest of the World’s Fair on April 22, 1964, and quickly became among its most popular attractions.

Visitors rode glass “Sky Streak” elevators to the observation deck of a 226-foot tower — the highest point in the fair. The two shorter towers, at 150 and 60 feet, held a cafeteria and a VIP lounge.

The pavilion’s 16, 100-foot-tall concrete columns supported what was then the largest suspended roof in the world, a 50,000 square-foot expanse of translucent, multicolored tiles. On the floor below was a $ 1 million, 9,000-square-foot terrazzo tile map of the state, with details of cities, towns and highways.

In the years after the fair, the pavilion was used as a music venue for such acts as Led Zeppelin, the Grateful Dead and Fleetwood Mac. In the ’70s, it became a roller skating rink until the collapse of the ceiling tiles, leaving only bare cables behind.

The towers, while still structurally sound, were abandoned as observation decks long ago for safety reasons. Their retro-futuristic look has been most widely known from its use in such movies as “Men in Black” and “Iron Man 2.”

Although occasionally opened for tours, the towers and pavilion — the last major structures still standing from the World’s Fair that have not been preserved — have largely served as a stoic landmark for travelers on the Van Wyck Expressway. Two pad-locked gates — one chain-link, one metal — keep the Tent of Tomorrow shuttered.

“It should be called the ‘Tent of Yesterday,'” says Ben Haber, who lives near the park. “This is not the Parthenon, it’s not the Sphinx, it’s not the pyramids. … So what’s so special that we should keep it?”

At the heart of the debate is the cost. While the city’s Parks Department commissioned studies on the cost of scrapping or renovating the complex, it is still unclear where that money would come from and, if restored, how the structures would be used. If the money comes through, work on the city-owned pavilion could begin as early as next year once officials make a decision.

Queens Borough President Melinda Katz has formed a task force dedicated to preserving the pavilion, noting that other structures from the World’s Fair have been saved, most notably the 12-story-tall metal globe called the Unisphere, the Hall of Science and the Queens Museum.

Among the ideas are to convert the towers once again into observation decks or an elevated garden or even a platform for bungee jumping, with the open-air pavilion turned into a performance space with a removable stage and bleachers.

While that debate plays out, a small group of World’s Fair buffs has formed to repaint the pavilion so it can be open to the public briefly for an April 22 anniversary event. The towers will still be off limits.

“I just loved this pavilion,” says 63-year-old volunteer painter John Piro. “And as the years went on I saw it decay and it just like tore my heart.”

Haber, the Queens resident, argues that nostalgia is fine, but the cost of saving the complex is just too much.

“Urban parks are the backyards for people who don’t have them — so they can sit on the grass, look at trees, flowers, water,” Haber says. “They do not want to look at glass, steel and cement structures.”
