PHOTOS: Whitney Houston’s 10 Most Iconic Looks Though Crawford had nothing to do with the documentary's production, in an interview for Esquire after Houston died, she hinted at why she believes her friend turned away from her 12 years ago: the vulnerable star’s reluctance to reopen emotional wounds. When people left her or were told to leave, they could never believe that Whitney would never call them , but she never did, said Crawford who quit her job in 2000. She was working hard to keep herself together and I think she felt if she admitted any feeling of sadness or weakness, she would crumble...That was Whitney, she could not pick up the phone and that meant it was too painful.

The coziness of a small space — or the closed-in, cramped feeling of one — isn't always due to how few square feet it is. What you fill a small room with matters, for sure. But another vital element is the color you coat the room in. Conventional wisdom has always advised to use lighter colors to make walls recede (and a room feel larger) and to avoid darker hues (which might make the walls feel like they're closing in), but that's just not always the case. Sometimes a dark color can make a room feel even cozier. From deep, dramatic shades, to warm colors versus cool colors, see how a rainbow of hues changes the way this small bedroom looks and feels.

If Catastrophe makes viewers fundamentally uncomfortable, itsa feeling they share with the shows creatorsand it comes from a very real place. In most cringe comedies, the wincing and face-shieldingcome as characters ineptly navigate their careers or the dating world. With Catastrophe ,however, the leads are married with two kids, and the discomfort stems from the kind of lived-in tensions that flare up when two peopleknoweach otherso intimately they almost resent each other for the invasion. Married life is well-trod territory for television, but what distinguishes it in this case is Catastrophes stomach-sinking realism. The shows creators and stars, Rob Delaney and Sharon Horgan ,lean into areas like bed farts and basement-masturbation, from which similarly premised programs oftenshy away.

If you can find something you genuinely appreciate about the other person and get that across candidly, theyll be a lot more open to anything else you have to say. It also strengthensyour relationship and makes them think of you more favorably. Your ability to see the positive in them elevates you in their eyes and gives more credibility to everything you say and do. 5. You Didnt Let Them Think It Was Their Idea The Whole Time This ones tricky, and frankly its not always achievable. But one of the best ways to persuade others of your idea is to plant it in their minds and let them believe they came up with it. The best way to do this without being manipulative (or a professional hypnotist) is simply to make suggestions, framingyour ideas as possibilities. Its all about leaving the other person feeling empowered enough to make their mind up themselves.

A leading New York rabbi says that Jewish Voice for Peace has hearts of stone, Jewishly cold, lifeless and emptied of Jewish feeling, and says the group's statements on terrorism would make Osama bin Laden blush, and that they also seem to approve Bashar al-Assad. The April 7 sermon by an excited Rabbi Ammiel Hirsch of the Stephen Wise Free Synagogue is a sign of how rocked the Jewish community is today by the threat of anti-Zionism and the boycott movement, BDS. Hirsch sought to excommunicate JVP for its support of boycott. They no longer feel the pulse of our people, he said. He slurred Arabs in his sermon, deriding JVP for making Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour their high priestess, and saying the group does not appreciate that young Israeli soldiers are holding back the hordes from coming into Israel from Syria and annihilating Jews.

I’m sorry, Doers, or whatever the fuck. The true beauty of these ads is that they are all predicated on mythologizing the very workers who their service is intended to immisserate. Sorry about your medical debt; here’s a photo of a model who we paid in “exposure” over ad copy written by an intern who we paid in college credit that cost $3,000 a credit hour. Enjoy. The purpose of these companies is to take whatever tiny sense of social responsibility businesses might still feel to give people stable jobs and destroy it, replacing whatever remains of the permanent, salaried, benefit-enjoying workforce with an army of desperate freelancers who will never go to bed feeling secure in their financial future for their entire lives.

There are some angry people in America and young black males in my district are feeling, at this moment, if they could not get a conviction with the Rodney King video available to the jurors, that there can be no justice in America. Waters remained a champion for her city over the six days of the uprising and beyond. In addition to sending disaster relief supplies like food and diapers, Waters pounded the pavement to bring peace to South Central. She demanded the resumption of vital services like electricity and water to the area. Along with Jesse Jackson, Waters urged the Justice Department to file civil rights charges against the four acquitted cops. When the city issued a curfew and authorities and news outlets painted the black people who were rebelling as thugs, Waters actively worked to shift that narrative. It wasnt just a matter of semantics ― it was about privileged and powerful people using dangerous and racially charged language to belittle the longstanding concerns of residents of color.

Over the coming months there are a number of excellent titles on the horizon including Super Mario Odyssey, and well be sure to keep this list updated. Even for a series like The Legend of Zelda which rarely puts a foot wrong, Breath of the Wild is an absolutely phenomenal game. While past Zelda games have stuck pretty closely to the formula established by Ocarina of Time (the series 3D debut), Breath of the Wild throws much of the established wisdom away. Rather than having a pre-defined order you must use to approach each major mission, Breath of the Wild opens the entire map up to you almost immediately, allowing you to approach the game in whatever order you see fit. You can spend hours just climbing trees and brewing elixirs, or you can even head straight to the games final boss if youre feeling confident.

The soldiers also named men who had sex with his daughter. “Her body was covered with dark bruising, and her face was swollen and bruised as well,” Fabri added. “She said she often fainted or lost consciousness. She described feelingbroken, tired, and unable to move, like a dead body.” She also said she was left naked most of the time and tortured in front of the detained men and that this was a “big shame for everyone.” Furthermore, Odeh recalled an experience where she was brought to a room naked. The soldiers chained her arms and legs so her legs were spread wide open. Detained men were brought into the room. She was told they would have sex with her. “She recognized one of the men as her fiancé. She stated that she does not know what happened because ‘I fainted.

" Angela Merkel, German Chancellor (German): "Furthermore, it is clear that a third state, and that's what Great Britain will be, cannot and will not have the same rights or possibly be better than a member of the European Union. All the 27 member states and the European Institutions agree with that." Angela Merkel, German Chancellor (German): "Dear colleagues, maybe you think that these are self-evident facts, but unfortunately I have to say it clear because I have the feeling that some in Great Britain still create illusions about it. That would be wasted time'." Angela Merkel, German Chancellor (German): "I am firmly convinced that the European Union will, also after the withdrawal of Great Britain, be a uniquely valuable community and one of the strongest worldwide economic markets."

All that progressive passion excites organizers, many of whom insist that the breadth of their movement ensures a grassroots brigade will always be on hand to fight Trump, even if the full army isnt always available. Still, the frenetic pace of the first 100 days has forced some activist leaders to acknowledge that burnout is a real risk. “We can try to form the tools we need for best practices, but if folks dont show up themselves and own this and build this, there wont be a resistance at the national level,” said Ezra Levin, executive director of the fast-rising anti-Trump group, Indivisible . “I’m worried that Donald Trump will win if people stop showing up,” Levin added. Trump also stands to win if Democrats cannot direct some of that enthusiasm to their candidates in the 2018 midterm elections and beyond. If all this resistance leads to nothing after 2018, you could see people feeling disenchanted and like their efforts dont matter, Progressive Change Campaign Committee co-founder Adam Green said.

Gender also didn't change the effect of the death prime. Consistent with existing literature, male participants were generally more likely than females to support killing animals, but the death prime affected men and women the same way. Feeling superior A paper on the work appears in the Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin . The coauthors base their findings on psychology's terror management theory, which comes from anthropologist Ernest Becker's 1974 Pulitzer Prize-winning book, The Denial of Death . The theory posits that humans use self-esteem as a buffer against fear of death. In a previous study, Lifshin and his colleagues showed that when people who enjoy playing basketball are reminded of their mortality, they improve their performance on the basketball court, and thereby their self-esteem, to manage their fear of death. Athletes play better after reminders that they'll die In the animal study, researchers think death-primed participants supported killing animals more because it provided them with a sense of power or superiority over animals that indirectly helped them fend off fear of mortality, Lifshin says.

But like any other boxer, Nietes has his weakness, and we plan to exploit that weakness," Munton said, per Phil Boxing .com's Dong Secuya. That's far easier said than done, and it's not like Nietes will be taking his opponent lightly. On the contrary, he's said he has put in more time in training and is even looking to finish the fight early. "I have a very good feeling about this fight, because I've trained longer. I put in more time and focus, because I want to give a good performance," said Nietes, per the Philippine Star 's Abac Cordero . "This is only my second flyweight match, but I'm confident I will be able to deliver a knockout," he said. Nietes hasn't scored a true KO since pummeling Moises Fuentes in May 2014, but he has forced three opponents to retire early since then. He dropped Gilberto Parra once in March 2015 and sent Raul Garcia down twice in the third round in a lopsided beatdown last year before the fight ended in the fifth.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel told Britons Thursday not to delude themselves that they would continue to enjoy EU rights after Brexit and insisted the bloc would only agree on future ties with London after they have nailed down a deal to leave. Striking a firm tone in a speech to the Bundestag lower house of parliament before a weekend summit on Brexit, Merkel also said talks on Britain’s financial obligations to the EU would have to be addressed early on in the talks. “A third state, and that’s what Britain will be, cannot and will not have at its disposal the same rights ... as members of the European Union,” Merkel, the EU’s most influential leader, told lawmakers. “I must say this clearly here because I get the feeling that some people in Britain still have illusions — that would be wasted time,” she said, to loud applause from lawmakers.
