Judi Dench Defends The Work of Harvey Weinstein And Kevin Spacey

The 84-year-old Jude Dench came forward to defend the work of Kevin Spacey, Harvey Weinstein, and men like them as Weinstein’s sexual assault trial draws near. Though she doesn’t in any way condone sexual harassment, she believes viewers should still appreciate their life’s work – and she has quite a solid argument!

Dench spoke with Radio Times and appeared on the cover of its latest issue, saying that their work should not be tossed aside and unappreciated just because of accusations that have been brought against them. “What kind of agony is that?” she asked.

“Are we going to negate 10 years at the Old Vic [where Spacey once served as artistic director] and everything that he did? How wonderful he’s been in all those films? Are we just not going to see all those films that Harvey produced?” she continued.

You’d Have to Ban Caravaggio, Too

Dench worked with Weinstein multiple times, one of the most renown being the 1998 film Shakespeare in Love. She compared what happened to the 17th-century painter Caravaggio to the present-day situation. The man has sentenced Death on account of murder, yet his work is still venerated and hung in Roman churches and museums.

“You cannot deny somebody a talent,” Dench said. “You might as well never look at a Caravaggio painting. You might as well never have gone to see Noël Coward [the famous English playwright and actor accused of harassment].”

After The New York Times’ 2017 exposé that recorded nearly two decades of allegations of misconduct, almost 90 women came forward to accuse Weinstein of harassing, sexually assaulting, or raping them.

The charges he’s now facing are for two of those, one of which is an incident in which he allegedly forcibly performed oral sex on a woman in his New York apartment in 2006. The other is a 2013 altercation where he allegedly raped a woman in a New York hotel room. Weinstein, whose trial is expected to begin on September 9, has denied these allegations and pleaded not guilty

Will You Boycott Hoese Of Cards Because of This?

Spacey, the former House of Cards star, has been charged with the indecent assault and battery of an 18-year-old boy in July 2016, and he has also pleaded not guilty.

This is not the first of such accusations being made against him as in 1986, the actor Anthony Rapp, who was 14 at the time, claimed Spacey made sexual advances. Spacey didn’t remember such an encounter but apologized anyway.

With the #MeToo movement going strong, many men have faced accusations like these as well as much ridicule and criticism.

Yet, there are some defending men’s “freedom to pester” women. In France, for instance, one hundred women signed an open letter criticizing the #MeToo movement and the criticism men have had to deal with as a result.

Catherine Deneuve, a French movie star, gathered writers, businesswomen, academics, and performers to sign the letter, denouncing the “hatred of men and sexuality.” The letter was printed in the French newspaper Le Monde.

This Flight Attendant’s Safety Brief is Simply Hilarious

Some people make life more exciting than it is. These incredible people draw that curve on your lips with every opportunity they could make use of. Have you encountered one of them in any of your flights?

If you are a seasoned traveler, the moment that you hear the safety briefing started, you would wish it ends soon.

You’ve heard this over and over and if you are regularly boarding the same flight, this routine briefing may start automatically playing in your head in advance, ahead of the crew conducting the briefing.

Fortunately, for this flight from Calgary to Arizona, this flight attendant’s sense of humor appealed to all passengers and surely to anyone who watches this video.

Watching this video, you’ll conclude that the one who took the footage thought of catching the moment when the attendant is almost halfway of the briefing.

And, in French:

Have you missed much of the fun? No, not really! The comedy show went on as the flight attendant delivered more fun as the briefing is aired in French Language.

So did it so well that even for one who does not understand any French word would catch the message of what is being portrayed. This a great demonstration that “action speaks louder than words?”

He is a natural comedian. His main asset is how he portrays and interprets words and scenes using his facial expressions in a hilarious way. Watching him, one can feel his energy that is overflowing with a gush of comedy.

What is very commendable with this guy is that his way of delivering humor appeals to all ages: it is as funny to kids as it is to adults. Some comedians perform in a way that it appeals only to a particular age.

Some, with their aim to make people laugh, resort to gestures that sometimes transgress the border of inappropriateness.

Hope that the next time you will board a plane, you will encounter a guy like him. Alternatively, you can watch this video again before your flight so you will assimilate an ample amount of energy.

There is a big chance that you will not feel the passage of time while the routine briefing is being conducted, no matter how boring it is. Sit back and relax and enjoy your flight!

Finding the Right Dog Walker

Dogs needs to be exercised every day in order to stay healthy.  This is essential for their physical and mental well-being so if you are unable to walk your dog daily you will need to find a suitable dog walker.

This can be a difficult decision because although anyone can call themselves a dog walker, it doesn’t mean that they have the experience, qualification or expertise to be the right walker for your companion.

Take a look at this guide for choosing a dog walker that meets all your pet’s needs:

Word-of-Mouth Recommendations

Getting good recommendations from other dog parents is probably the best way to start when looking for a dog walker of your own.  Ask them what their experiences have been, talk to other dog owners at the park or ask your vet if they have any particular dog walker they are happy to recommend.

If you do get a good recommendation then be sure to check them out thoroughly before deciding to hire them.

Meet and Greet

Always invite a potential dog walker to meet your dog because your dog needs to be comfortable with them.  If your dog feels shy or wary when they meet new people you need to keep this in mind and give them some time. However, the walker should not be phased by this.  Ideally, they will be calm, assertive and able to read your dog’s behavior and body language.

Ask questions

 The sort of thing you need to know is what will be happening while your dog is with their walker.  Consider the following questions:

  • Where will my dog be walked?
  • Can you accommodate my dog’s needs? If your dog is not particularly well socialized, for example, would the walker be willing to walk him/her alone?  Would they be able to introduce your dog to others gradually?
  • How long will my dog be walked? Make sure you are clear about the specific amount of time your dog will spend walking with their new companion.
  • Will anyone else walk my dog? Many dog walkers work alone, but some are part of larger businesses.  If this is the case you’ll need to know who is likely to be walking your dog.
  • What training do you have? If you are employing a dog walker you want them to have some experience of dogs, ideally professional experience. This is a crucial question to ask or you could end up with someone walking dogs just to earn some extra cash.
  • Have you been walking dogs for long? You need to know how much experience this person has in walking dogs.
  • What training methods do you use? If their training methods do not dovetail with your own you might want to choose someone else.
  • Do you have the relevant licenses and insurance? A legitimate dog walking business is required to have a license and proof on insurance.
  • Are you able to deal with emergencies?
  • Are you trained and certified in canine first aid?

And finally, take the walker for a test walk:

Ask the walker if you can come along for the first walk.  Although they will obviously be on their best behavior you can still get an idea of how they interact with your dog and if your dog likes them.  See how they relate to your dog’s needs, for example, are they sensitive if your older dog needs to walk slowly?

Look to see if they are a good fit.  Look at your dog – how is their body language?  Do they look happy and comfortable with this person? Never feel rushed into making a decision, it is important that your dog feels happy and comfortable on his or her walk and that they are safe.

Dogs needs to be exercised every day in order to stay healthy.  This is essential for their physical and mental well-being so if you are unable to walk your dog daily you will need to find a suitable dog walker.

Unfold Your Getaway: Canoe for City Dwellers Packs Down to a Suitcase

For those who live in a big city, canoes are just things you associate with getaways or, at the very least, an expensive rental at a nearby body of water. People who live in suburbia barely have room to store them, much less those of us who live in apartment buildings.

Imagine trying to lug a massive canoe up your narrow staircase or trying to fit it in your overhead storage space – not possible!

But Ghent-based designer Otto Van De Steene found the solution one day while he was fiddling around with an origami canoe. It made him think: could this be replicated in a real-life canoe? Steene has proved that it can with the ‘ONAK,’ a portable canoe that folds down to the size of a suitcase.

Steene had seen numerous other models that just didn’t measure up at outdoor recreation stores. “You have the canoes that have really good performance on the water – they’re fast, but they’re quite heavy and take an hour to assemble. Nothing to do in an evening after work.”

Trial and Error

One that was recently released was the Oru folding kayak which had the potential to be successful, but the plastic construction didn’t lend itself to durability. Steene tried making his out of a custom-made polypropylene for his own design, as it’s lighter and stiffer, improving the boat’s performance.

With its honeycomb-core composite material, it’s ten times as strong as standard polypropylene, making it highly durable and fully recyclable.“By making hundreds of paper models and fifteen real prototypes, we also refined the design of our patent pending hull.

This was a huge challenge due to the limitations of origami. We opted for a narrow and fast canoe design that keeps its momentum very well, while still being delightfully easy and stable to maneuver for beginners.

”The process of assembling or packing up the portable canoe takes about ten minutes. The size is a bit bigger than the Oru – 47”x15.7”x10” as a roller case, expanding to 183” long by 33.5” wide –, but the fact that it’s on wheels makes it more conducive to transporting from place to place.

It can also carry about 440 pounds with enough room for two adults, a child, and gear.

The Okak has met its goal after just a couple days left on its Kickstarter campaign, but if you back the project in time, you can still get a pretty good price. Once it hits the market, it will sell for about $1450 with two paddles.

Celebrated SF Sculptor Ruth Asawa Honored with Google Doodle

On Tuesday, April 30, Ruth Asawa was memorialized with the online tribute of a Google Doodle. Asawa is a celebrated San Francisco sculptor who already has a public high school named after her and a day each year in her honor.

The Google Doodle appeared on 9 p.m. Tuesday, April 30 and ended the following night at 9 p.m, also the first day of Asian American Pacific Islander Heritage Month. For those 24 hours, anyone doing a Google search would see Asawa threading one of her trademark wire baskets. The search box was also illustrated in the United Kingdom, Ireland, and Israel.

The logo shows Asawa kneeling on a carpet applying overhead stitching to a crochet wire basket with four more completed ones hanging alongside it, a bit like Chinese lanterns or Christmas ornaments. The unsigned color drawing was designed by Google staff artist Alyssa Winans.

Google founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page began the Google Doodle in 1998 when they first played around with their corporate logo to suggest they attended Burning Man. Since they began this fun and meaningful tradition, 2,000 or so doodles have been chosen and created by the Google Doodle Team.

Graduated in an Internment cap

When she was a teenager, Asawa was included in the internment of Japanese Americans living on the West Coast during World War II and began her artistic training from other internees. She graduated high school in 1943 while in an internment camp in Arkansas, which then allowed her to leave and go to college. Asawa studied at Black Mountain College in North Carolina but eventually moved to San Francisco, where she and her husband, architect Albert Lanier, raised six children.

It was Asawa’s doing that produced a public arts high school in San Francisco, founded in 1982. She was a faithful advocate of the study of the arts. Since its founding, the San Francisco School of the Arts was renamed the Ruth Asawa San Francisco School of the Arts in 2010. Feb. 12 has been Ruth Asawa Day in San Francisco since 1982.

However, Asawa died at 87 in 2013. Her work continues to be represented through permanent collections of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the de Young Museum and the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, plus several works of public art throughout San Francisco. The Doodle itself provides a biography of her life.

The Japanese American Internment Memorial Sculpture in San Jose and the Garden of Remembrance, which includes boulders representative of 10 internment camps, at San Francisco State University are just a couple of the permanent installations that memorialize her and her work.

“She was most proud of what she did in the public schools,” said her son, Paul Lanier, “and having so many people see the Google banner will draw their attention to learn more about her.”

JFK Airport to Open Up Dog Terminal?

When we take our dogs to the airport with us, one thing we often worry about is them causing a scene. Hanging around in an indoor airport for so long can naturally have an impact on animals that just love to run around and make the most of every second of the day. So, the staff at JFK International Airport have taken the rather proactive step of opening up an animal-only terminal!

Complete with a ‘dog resort’, this part of the airport is for those canines who just cannot sit at peace otherwise. Now, you can go and handle all of the requirements needed to make sure you can head off on holiday without issue.

Your canine companion can hang around the dog resort while you run around and get everything ready for the big trip. If that does not sound like the perfect day for your dog, we aren’t really sure what will!

Air travel for pets has become a very important part of the process, as in the past it was so miserable, minimalistic and, frankly, quite spartan. Now, things are changing at JFK: you can come on down to the airport and enjoy the first ever privately-owned ‘dog terminal’. Now, your animal can go through the confusing terminal process and make sure the stress and upset of the experience does not have to be so scary.

This is not just for dogs, either. All animals are welcome to be part of “The Ark”, within reason. It will be used as a cargo holding area for animals while they wait for the time to arrive to get the transport that they need. This outrageously interesting idea is one that is going to really change how animals are dealt with when they are taking off from JFK.

Paw-rific

It’s also going to house a Paradise 4 Paws kennel collection, which is an overnight pet resort that canines simply adore. It’s a state-of-the-art facility that makes it very easy for you to enjoy the whole experience and ensures that you can see everything from entertainment staff to vets and even an aviary.

Everything is here that your dogs would need to have some fun and to relax as they come into the facility.

The move, which is set to cost around $48m, is sure to make travel so much easier for those who are bringing their pet with them on a trip. It’s no longer going to be anywhere near as stressful or as challenging as it used to be. Now, you can get everything ready for the big trip while your beloved canine has all the fun in the world in The Ark!

Dying Man Wanted to Hear Harley’s Roar One Last Time

Jon Stanley was a biker through and through. After a lifetime of riding a Harley, the loud purr of its motor was a sound he sorely missed once he was diagnosed with lung and brain cancer in 2017. As he neared the end of his battle, his one wish was to hear that sound one last time, and around 200 bikers showed up to make that wish come true.

The 61-year-old’s brother-in-law, Michael Smith, was determined to make this happen for Jon, so he contacted local biker David Thompson. Thompson immediately took up the cause and began rallying the biking community to take it up as well.

David posted a picture of Jon alongside a picture of the brand-new Harley he had only gotten to ride about 3 times before being diagnosed. He asked that fellow bikers would meet at Jon’s house in South Bend, Indiana, to provide him with his last wish – to hear the engines roar.

In his post, David wrote:

“Sometimes a dying person’s last wish is just to hear the sound of a Harley in their window. This is Jon Stanley he has terminal cancer.

I personally met with his family this morning and learned Jon is a vet and was an abate member who has rode for years. This is his new Harley he just got and only rode 3 times!

I know this is short notice but bikers take care of bikers! We will meet at Walmart on Ireland Rd at 6pm and kick stands up at 6:30 tonight 6/12/20017 to ride out to Jon’s house to show him and his family some love and make some noise for him!”

Only six hours had passed by the time 200 people were at Jon’s house with over 100 motorbikes on June 12, 2017 as he lay on his bed inside.

Amongst engines revving and men cheering, Jon’s family carried him outside and sat him in one of the sidecars so that he could not only hear the engines but also feel the vibrations. Bikers from all over the county had showed up for this moment of support.

They had come right on time as Jon passed away only a couple hours later in his wife’s arms. Though his death was tragic, his family was happy and touched that such a movement had been made to fulfil his last wish.

Rest in peace, Jon

Yellowstone Super Volcano Explored Further With Amazing Results

As one of the most prominent pieces of nature, the Yellowstone Super Volcano is, for many, a catastrophe waiting to happen. Should it ever blow its top, we could be in for a transformative change to the entire world.

The sheer change that it would produce would be incredible, and it would be a world-altering issue. However, the volcano itself is always being explored and investigated further. A new thermal area has just been found through these discoveries – and the thermal area appears to be relatively new, at around 20-years old.

The Yellowstone Volcano Observatory keep a close eye on the volcano. They found a new pocket of warmth that has been found near the West Tern Lake and the Tern Lake thermal area. This was found using infrared imagery and was picked up on images taken from April 2017.

Comparing the Vegetation Over Time

By checking other imagery, they found a series of dead trees and brightly lit soil on high-resolution programs. They compared that with an image from 1994, which showed a rich, vibrant and happy location: compared with a 2006 image, the damage was already starting. 11-years on, the whole area that was once so lush and vibrant is burnt out.

Therefore, the belief is that the new thermal area formed sometime in the late 1990s or the early 2000s. Most of the location where it has popped up is not heavily explored. Therefore, it’s probably likely to be one of the new thermal areas appearing in more rural locations.

With around 10000 thermal features found across around 120 thermal areas, then, this is not the only thermal area which is found in a hard to reach location.

If you wish to check out this thermal area, then you can head on over to 44.6635 N latitude and 110.278 W longitude. This would help you to see the new thermal area found on major mapping tools such as Google Maps.

Indeed, this is a period of regular discovery about the Yellowstone Super Volcano. In 2018, it was found that it was a record-breaking year for the tallest active geyser in the world. Eruptions took place a whopping 32 times, breaking the 29-time record set in 1964.

This is quite an interesting time for those who feel passionate about this particular piece of land. In time, who knows what else we might find out about this incredible piece of nature?

Let’s hope we find out everything we can about it before the day arrives where it finally goes pop!

Cat Enjoys Spectacular Transformation Due to Unique Condition

When we own pets, it’s hard for us to know just what might be ‘wrong’ or ‘right’ with them. The diagnosis of our pets can be a hard thing to do at the best of times. When we come across unique and rarely seen issues, though, it can become even more confusing as to what might be the problem.

However, cat owner Nicole Bohm managed to find a rather amazing condition that her cat was ‘suffering’ from. She found that she has the ability to change her fur coat!

Having rescued the feline alongside some other cats, she picked them up from a farm in Germany. Happy to have them around and to care for them, she enjoyed having the cats around. They seemed entirely normal, with nothing too unique or challenging taking place. However, over time she began to notice that there was something quite strange about the cats.

For example, Elli – unlike her sisters – started to show some significant changes in her fur coloring.

Black Turns to White

Small patches of black fur would be substituted for a bright white look instead. It was enough of an adjustment, though, for Bohm to want to find out what was going on. A trip to the vet was booked up, and what she found out about her cat was nothing to worry about.

What it was, though, was a truly remarkable discovery. Her cat suffers from vitiligo-like symptoms, which causes pigmentation in skin or fur to be lost. Despite often coming with a host of other problems, young Elli had no other health issues.

Over time, then, Elli began to go through a transformative change. She changed from a black cat with a small sprinkling of white fur to the total contrast. Now, she was a speckled cat with a totally white coat.

Despite the total change in her look, though, she never changed her personality. Or her relationship with her beloved sisters. Retaining her same playful elegance and eloquence as before, Elli merely had started to transform into a new look, not a new cat altogether. If you are interested, you can watch for regular updates on her official Instagram page.

It’s quite the story. If you see your cat beginning to go through gradual changes in fur, then you should probably get them checked out for vitiligo. While it can be a mesmeric change, it can be accompanied with some health issues so be sure to retain vigilance about what this could mean for your feline.

5 Beach Hacks to Prepare You for an Awesome Spring Break Trip

Going to the beach is one of the most relaxing experiences, but sometimes those small annoyances or extra items you need to bring along can entirely ruin the experience. Or maybe you love the beach but hate how the sand spreads – all over you and in your phone. With spring break upon us, here are five simple, cheap hacks to keep your beach time worry-free.

Cell Phone Tip

Leaving your cell phone behind is basically not an option – it’s communication, entertainment, music, etc. But what about all the sand that gets stuck in the crevices? And the possibility of water damage? All you need is a plastic sandwich bag. The touchscreen still works through the plastic, you’ll find that it stays untouched by water and sand!

 A Useful Beach Towel

You might be saying, “Duh, who wouldn’t bring a beach towel?” But we’re not talking about just any beach towel. This is something you can create on your own or buy ready-made, but a towel with pockets does wonders. First of all, it’s great storage space for things like your phone, books, glasses, etc., and second, the filled pockets weigh it down so that it doesn’t blow away!

 Take Baby Powder

Sand gets everywhere, and it’s pretty determined to stay everywhere, too. Most often, we rinse off one last time in the ocean before we leave the beach, but by the time you’ve gotten off the beach, you’re basically covered again. Two words: baby powder. It’s almost magical in its ability to remove the sand from your body!

Extra Storage

Once you’ve gone through the pills in a pill bottle, hold onto that bottle. It’s the perfect little container for rings, earrings, bracelets, hair ties, and other small trinkets you don’t want to expose to the sand and water. And it barely takes up any space in your beach bag.

Emergency Sunburn Relief

If you’re like me, sunburn is almost inevitable at the beach. And if you’re like me, you don’t always remember to take aloe vera with you on your trip. Well, this is just the trick for you. Spread plain cold yogurt on your sunburn, and let it sit for ten or so minutes. It will bring huge relief!

Going to the beach is one of the most relaxing experiences, but sometimes those small annoyances or extra items you need to bring along can entirely ruin the experience. Or maybe you love the beach but hate how the sand spreads – all over you and in your...
