Blum's bet paid off nicely, as the flick grossed $65 million at home and almost $100 million worldwide. I imagine he's hoping for a similar return on investment of the $5 million spent on Split , opening today. Split stars James McAvoy as a man suffering from dissociative identity disorder, or multiple personalities. Living within a young man named Kevin are 23 different personalities, though we only really get to see a handful of them: Barry, a would-be fashion designer; Hedwig, a little boy; Eddie, a germaphobe with control issues; and Patricia, a motherly type. We get glimpses of some of the others, but little more. It's Eddie who kidnaps Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy), Claire (Haley Lu Richardson), and Marcia (Jessica Sula), a trio of friends celebrating Claire's birthday at the mall. Locked in a basement with no windows and little chance of escape, it’s the preternaturally calm and empathetic Casey who stands the best chance of turning Kevin's personalities against each other before The Beast—a 24th personality believed in by Eddie and Patricia that Kevin's doctor, Karen Fletcher (Betty Buckley), insists does not existmakes his appearance and feasts upon the flesh of the innocent.

Jock Struthers is sitting in a small hospital on the out-skirts of Phnom Penh recalling the first time he saw a woman with a brain protrusion that almost obliterated her face. It was here, in Cambodia, in Banteay Meanchey province, near the Thai border. I saw her driving a motorbike, then she went into a little shop. It looked like a tumour. You see so many horrendous things ... but this was a young girl. Struthers, whos from New Zealand, was then working with NZAID...

WASHINGTON: What words of wisdom does the leader of the free world have for the man replacing him? Letters that US presidents Bill Clinton and George W. Bush wrote on their last day in office touch on the unique burden of the role – but also the joy that comes from serving in the highest office. "Like me, you are especially fortunate to lead our country in a time of profound and largely positive change, when old questions, not just about the role of government, but about the very nature of our nation, must be answered anew," Clinton wrote to Bush on January 20, 2001, according to a copy of the handwritten letter that Bush's presidential library released to US media on Thursday. "The burdens you now shoulder are great but often exaggerated. The sheer joy of doing what you believe is right is inexpressible," he wrote, adding that "from this day you are President of all of us.

Washington DC: Goodyear Satire Co. As of noon on Friday, July 20, 2017 Russia will be our BFF. Joy! We'll have sleepovers. We'll hit on chicks. We'll imprison journalists. Good times. This is The Trump Doctrine. This is the doctrine of a man who controls 7.100 nuclear warheads but doesn't know what the nuclear triad is (air, sea and land based missiles -- now you're smarter than the President of the United States). "If we have nukes, why don't we use them?" he famously asked. "Because they'll use them, too, and we'll destroy the earth" was the unnecessary reply to what should have been an unnecessary question. Donald Trump can't find Hiroshima on a map. The Putin Doctrine The Trump Doctrine happens to be nearly identical to The Putin Doctrine. The only difference is The Putin Doctrine includes (in the fine print) "23. Infiltrate America." "We Will Bury You!" In 1956, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev made the taunt "We will bury you!" to Western ambassadors at a reception in Moscow.

They tap all the best parts of our personalities: patience, humor, humility (as anyone who has cleaned up a mess in the middle of the night can attest), compassion, playfulness, and loyalty. They remind us of the joy of connection and companionship--and no one is a better listening ear. Besides softening his image and providing fodder for positive news coverage, a dog in Donald Trump's White House could help him in other surprising ways: Foreign Policy Research has shown that it only takes 15-30 minutes with your pet to feel more relaxed and calm. A good snuggle session to boost serotonin before meetings with foreign leaders could help the president be a better diplomat (serotonin helps regulate mood, irritability, impulse and memory). Media Relations Studies have shown that having a dog helps people be more social, approachable and outgoing.

A great deal of how we see the world depends on our outlook. For the past eight years, President Obama has given the American people the example of his careful consideration, compassion, rigorous intelligence and, wonder of wonders, his love. Love was not something I would have previously thought to look for in a President, but now Im wondering how Ill do without it. It's there in all those pictures taken of the President with children, the mutual joy in every encounter. It's in the expansive tenderness and respect he showed his family: mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, sisters, daughters, Michelle. Michelle and Barack Obama . If you've lived without an example of respectful adult love in your family, all you had to do was look to the White House to see how it should be done. There's been love in the constant celebration of the achievements of others, in the Presidents willingness to shine the klieg light of his attention onto veterans, scientists, artists and educators.

The stunning result blows the men's competition wide open as the six-time champion was widely expected to reach the January 29 final, where he was seeded to meet five-time runner-up Andy Murray. It also raises fresh questions for the world number two, who has been in a funk since completing a career Grand Slam and winning his 12th major title at last year's French Open. "It's one of these days when you don't feel that great on the court, don't have much rhythm, and the player you're playing against is feeling the ball very well," he shrugged. "That's sport." Mother's love While Djokovic was rocked by the defeat, there was joy for Istomin, who is coached by his mother and has never got beyond the third round in 11 visits to Melbourne Park. "I feel sorry for Novak, I was playing so good today," he said. "I surprised myself also." One beneficiary of Istomin's win could be world number three Milos Raonic, who was seeded to meet Djokovic in the semi-finals.

But its Casey ( Anya Taylor-Joy , of The Witch ) who comes closest to unlocking his secrets. Like him, shes a misfit, an outlier. Her awkwardness is at least partly attributable to her troubled childhood, which Shyamalan dramatizes in flashback with reasonable effectiveness. Split is ostensibly about lots of things: The demons that live inside us, for one; the tactics humans use to overcome childhood trauma, for another. In the endafter the not-so-shocking final twistthe picture doesnt delve very deep. (Betty Buckley appears as a progressive and controversial therapist who believes her patients possess special gifts. Shes a sympathetic presence, but you know exactly where her character is headed.) But for the most part, Shyamalan keeps you guessing, here and there employing an arty effecta victim reflected in a predators eye, for instance.

It’s a portable home console at its core, blurring that once firm line between couch gaming and those on-the-go experiences. Image 4 of 17 Nintendo has nailed flexibility. If you’re sitting at home and want the proper big screen experience, just plonk it into the TV dock, grab a controller and it’ll be a TV-connected console. Heading to work? No biggie, simply detach it from the dock, slide the pair of controllers into either side of the Switch and you’re all set to play Zelda on that otherwise tedious train journey. Nintendo Switch (Neon Red/Neon Blue) Buy now The Switch is a very capable hybrid. Moving from the big screen to its surprisingly bright 6.2in 1,280 x 720 display is seamless without any lost frames. It’s a much bigger beast than the 3DS and weighs more too, but it’s by no means unwieldy.
