The internet exploded with enthusiasm for a movie concept starring Lupita Nyong'o and Rihanna that earned the approval of both stars and Wrinkle in Time director Ava DuVernay. So when TIME ran into the Wrinkle in Time director and TIME 100 member DuVernay at the TIME 100 gala, we couldn't resist the chance to ask her to weigh in on Twitter's viral wish. Anything is possible! For me, I think it was just so lovely to be kind of overwhelmingly nominated as the director of this cool idea, she said. But whether or not the prayer-answering movie ends up happening, DuVernay pointed out the grassroots campaign proves how hungry people are for this kind of art. I really think it shows the power of people wanting to see stories that are women-centered, women of color-centered that are made by women of color. I think it was really interesting that after Rihanna and Lupita were in the picture and the story went viral, it wasnt about whos the male lead or whos the sidekick, it was about whos going to write it? Whos going to direct it? I think that is really interesting about peoples interest in whos creating and whos telling the story and especially on Twitter where everyone is telling their own story.

Electronic records from e-mail, phone, and text messages also contribute to a complicated picture, showing a marriage in trouble and the presence of a pregnant girlfriend. Dabate claimed his wife's life insurance policy the day after the crime. To say it is rare to use Fitbit records would be safe, Pennsylvania district attorney Craig Stedman told the Hartford Courant , calling the tool an electronic footprint. After producing a detailed timeline of Connie's activity thanks to the Fitbit tracker, police charged Dabate with the crime in mid-April. He faces trial at the end of the month.

But why? Asking such a question reveals an oddly modern-America blend. Forthwith, the ingredients: The Creator The 27-year-old food-stylist Adeline Waugh has been largely credited with starting the craze when she added natural ingredients (beetroot, chlorophyll) to tint her health-food portraiture. The dyes were mostly aesthetic, for cream cheese on toast the resulting hues looked more appealing on Instagram. As Waugh recently told the New York Times , The entire point of what I was trying to do when I first created unicorn toast was to show people that healthy food can be fun and excitingespecially to give to your kids. Soon, though, the technique spread to cakes and hot chocolate covered in Lucky Charms. The Culture Waugh had another impulse, too: Sometimes with everything going on in the world, people just want to play with their food, or look at a picture of food that is brightly colored and happy and fun, she said in the Times interview.

OLED for VR Lastly, lets touch on one of the G6s more inexcusable omissions: an OLED screen. The company has been rather predictable with its IPS display technology, so the fact that the LG G6 continued the trend wasnt a surprise, but that doesnt make it any less disappointing. Many of the smartphone competitors have moved onto OLED screens, which offer a greater contrast ratio and brightness capability than IPS LCD does. While it suffers in its limited viewing angles, it makes up for with a very vivid picture that makes LGs technology look a little stale by comparison. To give you an idea of how behind LG is in this department, the best VR headset compatible with the G6 is Google Cardboard. An OLED screen in LG's next isnt just to satisfy our desire for what the LG G6 doesnt have, its a required component for Google Daydream support something that LGs latest phone obviously doesnt have.

The companion book What Do You Do With a Problem? follows a similar structure, in which a child discovers they have a problem, tries to ignore it, and has to confront it, this time learning the value of overcoming our problems. A new, clear visual metaphor again tells the story, but this time the story delves a bit more into what a problem actually is. Given that people tend to fear problems a bit more than they fear ideas, Problem is a bit darker than Idea, which is good for keeping it from being repetitive. Together, the What Do You Do books are truly great picture books that explore in an easy, kid-friendly tone how you can nourish ideas, and what you can learn from problems. The artwork is among the coolest I’ve seen in any picture book, with Problem featuring the more detailed drawings, added colors, and an even more expressive visual storytelling element.

Her family is Egyptian and they came to this country. She speaks Arabic. Now this is based on her own words describing herself. Dina Habib Powell is the Goldman Sachs priestess behind the President’s throne. (Image: Wikipedia) She was in the White House on 9/11 and speaks Arabic. She was one of 25 Arabic-speaking people who have the high classification. She goes to work for Condoleezza Rice, helping to engineer the plan of “the seven Arabic countries in five years” which winds up killing over a million Arabs. Then she goes to New York to work for Goldman Sachs and she and her husband are suddenly able to buy a $3.3 million condo. Her job at Goldman Sachs is in the field of “socially responsible initiatives.” She puts together the “10,000 Women Initiative.” So, during the bailouts, when you have people getting thrown out of their homes and the country is collapsing, you go to Goldman Sachswebsite and on the homepage is a big picture of an African-American woman, smiling, and a banner that says “10,000 Women Initiative.

Anonymous has come out with a new video on their YouTube channel bringing attention to the recent events taking place as a result of Trump's call to attack Syria, which was based on intel his administration received about Assad's apparent chemical weapons attack on his own people — an event for which we know there is no evidence. Things have moved forward quickly, with military activity increasing around Europe as tensions continue to build. North Korea has also entered the picture, as their relationship with the U.S. becomes increasingly strained. While no attack has yet broken out, many worry one is imminent. What to Consider War is a big business and has been used by the elite cabal for many years to not only take over nations but also control the masses with fear. The cabal is typically always pushing for war, and while it may appear to be a fight between countries, it's not; it's often a collaborative effort between powerful individuals to play out big picture plans by creating conflict at various levels within a country to justify war.

Enlarge Aviation authorities late Monday released police reports about the Kentucky doctor who was violently removed from a United flight earlier this month. The officers involved painted a picture that differs from the viral videos of the incident taken by other passengers. The videos of the April 9 incident, which were posted on social media and broadcast on news sites across the world, have sparked global outrage at United, which at first defended the incident but later apologized. The police reports , released from Chicago's Department of Aviation in response to a Freedom of Information Act request by The Los Angeles Times and other news outlets, say 69-year-old passenger David Dao was flailing his arms and being verbally abusive. The officers involved suggested that it was Dao's fault that he struck his face on an armrest, which broke his nose, knocked out his two front teeth, and gave him a concussion before a flight from Chicago to Louisville.
