‘Thor: Ragnarok’ really rocks

WITH his long blond hair and magic hammer, the Mighty Thor has always been one of Marvel Comics' iconic characters. Thor has some serious history, the creation of Stan Lee, Larry Lieber and Jack Kirby in 1962 based on the Norse god of thunder. It was a no-brainer to bring Thor to the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) with Chris Hemsworth taking on the Odinson's mantle in 2011's "Thor," two "Avengers" films and 2013's "Thor: The Dark World" to generally good reviews and positive box office. This is, after all, literally the stuff of opera and mythology. But the drama may have been too much. Visually striking and epic, "Thor: The Dark World" was also so grim and serious to the point o...Keep on reading: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’ really rocks.....»»

Madame Tussauds in Tokyo to give free ‘Kim Jong-un style’ haircuts on July 16

Madame Tussauds wax museum in Tokyo is launching a one-day barbershop called "Peace Barber" on July 16, dedicated to giving free haircuts similar to the hairstyle of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. The free haircut event will not be held in the museum, however; instead Madame Tussauds will have a dedicated pop-up shop in Shibuya, as reported by Niconico News/Hachima Kiko via SoraNews24 today, July 15. Moreover, event organizers refer to the haircuts as "performances," so it is reportedly likely that the cutting of one's hair will be held for the public to see.

Help center for jailed fishers

GENERAL SANTOS CITY---For more than a year, Melencio Cobeta endured the difficulty and loneliness of being jailed in a foreign country.   "It was a nightmare for me," said Cobeta, the skipper of a Philippine-flagged tuna fishing boat who was arrested along with more than 20 Filipino fishermen in May 2016 in Indonesia on charges of illegal fishing.   Indonesia has waged a literally explosive campaign against illegal fishing since Joko Widodo assumed the presidency in 2014, blowing and sinking hundreds of foreign vessels illegally fishing in its waters.   The world's largest archipelagic nation is known for its rich marine resources, including large and...Keep on reading: Help center for jailed fishers.....»»

Mini-me dressing: The mother-baby pieces for matchy days

The saying, "Like mother, like child" doesn't just apply to the latter's physical appearance and attitude. Sometimes it pertains to their similarity in style---and many moms take it very literally. You've probably seen mothers and kids who are wearing matching or complementary clothing. Personally, I find myself fawning over how these ensembles come in miniature sizes. If you're a new mom or a mom-to-be who wants to do the same with their children, we found celebrity inspiration and items you can cop too. Happy shopping for you and your little one!

Amy Adams on doing sex scenes, getting pushed hard

LOS ANGELES---Add Amy Adams' portrayal of a self-loathing, alcoholic reporter in HBO's "Sharp Objects" to her list of masterful performances that were previously limited to cinema: "American Hustle," "The Fighter," "Doubt," "Junebug," "The Master," "Arrival" and "Big Eyes." In her first major television role, Amy is unforgettable in director Jean-Marc Valle's adaptation of Gillian Flynn's novel about journalist Camille Preaker (Amy) who, after a short stay in a psychiatric hospital (for self-harm---her pain is literally cut in words on her skin), must return to her small hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls.

Serena Williams nears 8th Wimbledon title, 24th Slam overall

LONDON --- It's almost as if Serena Williams never left. Even after more than a year away from the tour, even after a health scare while having a baby a little more than 10 months ago, Williams is still capable of dominance. Especially at Wimbledon, where she's one victory from an eighth championship. A relatively routine 6-2, 6-4 semifinal victory over 13th-seeded Julia Goerges of Germany on Thursday put Williams into her 10th final at the All England Club and moved her closer to a 24th Grand Slam title, which would equal Margaret Court's record. "It's crazy. I don't even know how to feel, you know, because literally, I didn't expect to do this well in my fourth tourname...Keep on reading: Serena Williams nears 8th Wimbledon title, 24th Slam overall.....»»

Lillard dismisses talk of unhappiness with Blazers staff report Only five months ago, Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard was telling reporters he wanted to someday be known as 'the best Trail Blazer ever.' That statement came just about two years after he talked of being a part of an the Blazers' organization for his entire career. Yet, this summer, a report surfaced that the Los Angeles Lakers might try to trade for Lillard. Lillard himself, though, isn't having such talk and made sure to discourage any notion he is unhappy in Portland. While he was indeed disappointed to see Ed Davis leave via free agency (he signed with the Brooklyn Nets this summer), Lillard is overall pleased with the Blazers and the direction of the team. Joe Freeman of The Oregonian has more: "I'm not unhappy," Lillard said Sunday. "I love where I live. I love the organization. I love our coaching staff. I love where I am." Lillard spoke to reporters after watching the Blazers' NBA Summer League game in Las Vegas, where he has been working out in preparation for a USA Basketball minicamp, and addressed a wide range of topics, including Davis' free agent exodus, the Blazers' offseason moves and the loaded Western Conference. He admitted to being upset the Blazers let Davis go. Not only did Davis want to stay in Portland, but Lillard had lobbied for it to happen, saying he hoped the respected and hard-working veteran big man would become Portland's version of Miami's Udonis Haslem. But shortly after free agency opened, Davis agreed to a 1-year, $4.4 million deal with the Brooklyn Nets, prompting Lillard to tweet a broken heart emoji. ... "I loved Ed," Lillard said. "One of my best friend's in the league (and) favorite teammates I've played with. To lose him, that's a loss for our team. Bazz played big minutes for us. Pat played big minutes for us. So we lose three rotation players that gave us a lot, that contributed to our season last year." ... At this point, Lillard said, he's accepted the obvious: The Blazers' finances and Portland's reputation among NBA players were to blame for the relative quiet offseason and his path to the playoffs will only be more challenging next season. "It's going to be a battle," Lillard said. "The way I see it, you're going to have the Golden State's, the Rockets. We were the third best team in the West and every other team behind us, they brought their guys back. So they're going to be one more year experienced together, probably going to be a little bit better. Teams like Denver, Utah and Minnesota, all those teams are going to be improved. So, us, we can't look at free agency and who we didn't get and (say) we didn't make this trade and all that stuff. Once the season starts, we've got to go. And we've got to do what we've got to do ... we've just got to find a way to make it happen." In 2017-18, Portland made it to the playoffs for the fifth straight year after finishing the season 49-33 and winning the Northwest Division title for the seventh time in franchise history. The Blazers were boosted by a 13-game winning streak that started with a victory over the Golden State Warriors just before the All-Star break, and secured the third seed in the Western Conference. The team’s streak matched the franchise record. Lillard drove the team’s success during that span. In March he averaged 27.9 points, 4.6 rebounds and 6.5 assists. He also set a franchise record by making 64 straight free throws. He was named the West’s player of the week twice. And, at season's end, he was named All-NBA first team for the first time in his career. Aside from sharing his thoughts on the Blazers' offseason and his happiness with being in Portland, Lillard also recently commented about the WNBA -- specifically how much the league's players are paid. In an interview at Saturday's (Sunday, PHL time) Connecticut Sun vs. Las Vegas Aces game, Lillard spoke with HerHoopStats on Twitter about WNBA wages: .@dame_lillard on the @WNBA: “They deserve a lot more respect. They deserve to make a lot more money than they do. I think it’s time people start recognizing that they are professional athletes and they should be treated like it and their league should be elevated...” — Her Hoop Stats (@herhoopstats) July 8, 2018 In addition, Toronto Raptors star guard DeMar DeRozan spoke out about WNBA wages, too, in an interview with HerHoopStats: .@DeMar_DeRozan: “Women’s game in general is awesome. I think they deserve way more recognition than what they’re getting and tonight’s game is a great example of that. The excitement, how hard they play...” @WNBA #wnba #WatchMeWork — Her Hoop Stats (@herhoopstats) July 8, 2018 Information from The Associated Press was used in this report......»»
