Years after Khal Drogo was killed off of Game of Thrones , Jason Momoa's epic audition tape for the HBO fantasy drama is still making the Internet rounds. Of course, that's because of the unusual way the Justice League actor tried out for the part of the Dothraki warlord by performing a Maori haka. During a recent interview with The New York Times , Momoa revealed that his character's lack of dialogue inspired the decision to do the traditional war dance. On Game of Thrones , [Drogo] doesnt say much. So how do you convey him? Theres nothing in the script, he explained. So I said: I have this idea. Is it OK to do [a dance] before the audition?' And they were like, Oh, sure.' Then I did the Haka. It was challenging to do the audition afterward I couldnt stop my heart from beating.

The South African National Traditional Healers Organisation has condemned the actions of a Limpopo based traditional healer who allegedly raped a 16 year old from Ga-Marishane. It is believed that the incident took place when the victim went for a consultation at the sangoma's home earlier this month; she was given traditional medicine by this healer to drink and subsequently became dizzy. The suspect took her to a room, where he raped her. Now for more on the story and frame work that surrounds the traditional work in South Africa, we are joined by Phephisile Maseko, the National co-coordinator for the South African National Traditional Healers Organisation.

Pro-Life women who are against Trump find themselves on the outside of Trump protests. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss the protests. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://www.tytnetwork.com/go “WASHINGTONAs a self-described feminist and law student who wants to correct racial wrongs in the criminal justice system, Maria Lyon agrees with Hillary Clinton that “women’s rights are human rights.” But when thousands of women march on the capital the day after Donald J. Trump is inaugurated as president, she will not be there. The reason: She opposes abortion. “It’s hard, because right now it feels like if you’re pro-life, you’re anti-woman,” said Ms. Lyon, 23, who studies law at the University of Wisconsin. “That’s kind of the traditional rhetoric. It’s like if you care about women and you care about women’s rights then you should be pro-choice.

My special thanks go to them for the opportunity of addressing you this evening. Three days from now, after half a century in the service of our country, I shall lay down the responsibilities of office as, in traditional and solemn ceremony, the authority of the Presidency is vested in my successor. This evening I come to you with a message of leave-taking and farewell, and to share a few final thoughts with you, my countrymen. Like every other citizen, I wish the new President, and all who will labor with him, Godspeed. I pray that the coming years will be blessed with peace and prosperity for all. Our people expect their President and the Congress to find essential agreement on issues of great moment, the wise resolution of which will better shape the future of the Nation. My own relations with the Congress, which began on a remote and tenuous basis when, long ago, a member of the Senate appointed me to West Point, have since ranged to the intimate during the war and immediate post-war period, and, finally, to the mutually interdependent during these past eight years.

Ladders are a genius invention. They are so useful for getting things in high places that are just out of reach. The man in this video is attempting to do just that, so he has decided to use a ladder. Smart choice. However, he has inexplicably decided to forgo the traditional way of using a ladder and instead went with the brandish-it-around-and-hope-for-the-best technique. Fascinating.

All very curious stuff! Lastly, a single date emerges from the poster's hidden details: April 7th, 1973. Could this be the period in which Hiddleston and Co. encounter the mighty Kong? We'll find out just a few short months into the new year... Kong: Skull Island story Entertainment Weekly, dished up some plot-revealing quotes from director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who teased that Kong: Skull Island would be set in the '70s, "a time where it was believable that we could still be confronted with myth." It stars Hiddleston as an ex-British SAS tracker and Larson as a war photographer who venture to the island when a NASA-based world mapping program finds a mysterious island... Skull Island. “We’re very explicitly not telling the beauty and the beast story,” Vogt-Roberts told EW. “From the size of the skull [in the photo above], you can tell that things on this island are much bigger than audiences are used to with traditional Kong lore.

" The Last Son Of Krypton visited his cousin Kara (Melissa Benoist) in Supergirl season 2, but it seems plausible that there could there be a larger role for Kal-El/Clark Kent to play in The CW-verse beyond that. The latest news on that front is that a Superman show isn't on The CW's top priority list right now. Supergirl season 2 Superman costume Speaking of Superman, here's what Tyler Hoechlin looks like in the get-up he'll be sporting in Supergirl season 2... Supergirl season 2 Superman influences Here's what The CW superhero stalwart producer Andrew Kreisberg said to Collider about the influences inspiring Tyler Hoechlin's Superman: "I think our take on him is probably something a little bit more traditional. There’s certainly a little bit of the 'Aw shucks' about him, but he’s been Superman for awhile, so there’s a savviness about him as Superman and as Clark.

What's different? One big change that might make an FE fan scoff is the perceived lack of perma-death in Heroes. "Traditional" games in the series punished poor planning by having friendly characters who die in battle stay dead for the rest of the game - making battles tense and reducing carelessness, (even if we'd just reset the save anyway). Instead, it appears defeated heroes return to your unit after the battle ends. This sort of feature was added in later FE games to make it more welcoming to newcomers, but Heroes may be the first time it comes as default. The other notable difference in Heroes is recruitment. Players can earn (or, more realistically, buy) Orbs to summon new heroes to join their side of varying roles and rarity. Players can choose what "style" of hero they recruit (should they need to make up for any weaknesses) but can likely expect the same-ol', same-ol', of pulling random characters from a hat, common in many free-to-play mobile games as users augment their army.

Anyone who knows The Office knows that Kevin Malone is serious about his chili. The character himself admitted it's probably the thing he does best. So it's an unspeakable tragedy when he spills an entire pot of it on the ground before anyone has a chance to try it. Lucky for us, YouTuber Andrew Rea has figured out how to make Kevin's famous chili and he is sharing that precious recipe to all of us. He even shows us the best way to eat the chili, which is of course on a piece of carpet. He says it's enjoying the chili in "the traditional fashion." We think Kevin would be proud. But feel free to put it in a bowl. Read more... More about Food , The Office , Watercooler , Youtube , and Tv

There are more options for content on the Roku Streaming Stick, both in terms of popular streaming apps (Chromecast can't natively support Amazon Instant Video) and in the obscure. You simply won't find specialized streaming apps called "Made for TV," "Northeastern Baptist Church" and "The Prime Radicals," which specifically focuses on children's math lessons, on any other platform. While there might not be as much to see and do with Chromecast, it only costs $3530, AU$49), about $15 less than what Roku is asking for its USB-sized streaming device. Ultimately, the decision will come down to whether you want a remote and a traditional interface that lumps content in one easy-to-find spot, both of which you can only find on Roku. Roku Streaming Stick vs Amazon Fire TV Stick: If you've already bought into Amazon's ecosphere, the Fire TV Stick will be the proverbial rug that ties the room together it's fast, responsive and works flawlessly with Amazon's infrastructure.
