02:16
(23 Jan 2018) Neil Diamond is retiring from touring after he says he was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. Days shy of his 77th birthday, the rock legend is canceling his tour dates in Australia and New Zealand for March. He was on his 50th anniversary tour. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer offered his "sincerest apologies" to those who planned to go to his shows and says he plans to still write, record and work on other projects "for a long time to come." Diamond's numerous hits include "Sweet Caroline," ''America," ''Love on the Rocks" and "Hello Again." Diamond turns 77 on Wednesday and will get the lifetime achievement award at Sunday's Grammy awards.

The original club closed in 1973, later reopening after extensive redevelopment in 1984. McCartney will take to the stage at 2pm local time Thursday (1300GMT). Free tickets for the event are available from Liverpool's Echo Arena box office and are limited to one per person.

Taraji P Henson talks about her engagement and how she met her fiance as Terrence Howard and Jussie
 
04:13
(15 May 2018) TARAJI P. HENSON: IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT WITH FIANCE KELVIN HAYDEN Taraji P. Henson was all smiles Monday (14 MAY 2018) on the red carpet, basking in the glow of her recent engagement. The "Empire" star got engaged to former NFL cornerback Kelvin Hayden on Mother's Day. "I knew he was gonna pop the question because he all but told me himself. I just didn't know when. That surprised me. He just did it," said Henson, as she attended an annual event in New York where Fox promotes its new TV lineup to advertisers. The actress said she was introduced to Hayden by her makeup artist three years ago -- and it was love at first sight. "She was like, 'You need to go out. You need to meet somebody. You're too fly. You're too amazing.' I was like, 'I don't know.' She's like, 'You're not gonna meet him at home. You need to go out.'" The makeup artist arranged a party full of eligible bachelors for Henson to mingle with. "I remember I was like, 'You better show me the pictures of some of these guys because I don't want to embarrass you and I feel weird doing this anyway but I'm gonna do it," she recalled. "She kept showing me his picture and it was like a close-up and I remember I zoomed into his eyes and I was like, I felt a spark. And I was like, 'Wow, something about his eyes are so gentle.' And you know how they say you can fall in love at first sight from a picture? That's exactly what happened so when we got to the actual event, I met everybody, I shook all the other guy's hands and I literally was looking for him and when he walked up to where I was it was like people parted like the red sea, a light came on, I heard angels and he reached out to shake my hand and we danced and we talked and we were hanging out every day since," she laughed. Henson says her "Empire" co-stars are thrilled with the news. "Jussie came down to my room and screamed and did backflips. Terrence said some amazing things about my fiance today in interviews because he's known him since we started dating and he's just happy. They're all really happy for me," she said. Howard says Hayden must be special for Henson to choose to be with him. "Watching so many people try and court her and the integrity that she showed. She's always had a motto. I've never known any person that she's worked with that's ever been able to go on a date with her, you know, she's that secure about maintaining her integrity so for her to let Kelvin in I'm like, wow. That's a big move. That's a big move right there for her." Fox and other broadcast networks are presenting their new schedules to advertisers in New York this week.

Sean Penn: Bradley Cooper remake of 'A Star is Born' is astonishing
 
02:54
(28 May 2018) SEAN PENN: BRADLEY COOPER REMAKE OF 'A STAR IS BORN' IS ASTONISHING The anticipated remake of "A Star is Born" doesn't premiere until October but it's already gaining buzz. The movie is the directorial debut of actor Bradley Cooper, who also stars in the film alongside Lady Gaga, who plays an aspiring singer - a role previously played by Judy Garland (the 1954 version) and Barbra Streisand (the 1976 version). A trailer premiered at CinemaCon in Las Vegas recently to applause from the crowd of theater owners and exhibitors and tweets of praise from journalists in attendance. One person who has seen an early screening is actor Sean Penn, who described it during a recent interview as "one of the best movies I've seen in I don't know how many years." "The acting is brilliant. Both, they are astonishing in it. And he as a director is the kind of artist that we had when I was kind of coming up as an audience. I knew he was a very talented actor, I did not know what was going on inside that guy's brain until I saw this movie and so that got – I'm really excited to see because: A, it's a great movie for a cinephile whose all about art films because it's all there. But that doesn't mean that everybody else isn't going to understand it and love it. This thing is like a Hal Ashby move. It's for everybody. It's a great movie for everybody instead of a pandering movie to make sure, for anybody." Cooper already has his next directing gig lined up, helming and starring in Leonard Bernstein biopic "Bernstein." Bernstein was named conductor of the New York Philharmonic orchestra at 25. He then wrote and composed the music for the film "West Side Story." A second movie about Bernstein is also in the works with Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead role.

04:45
(20 Sep 2018) DUCHESS OF SUSSEX'S COOKBOOK COLLEAGUES CELEBRATE THE ROYAL At a reception at Kensington Palace to celebrate the launch of a charity cookbook, attendees praised Meghan Markle. "Together: Our Community Cookbook" is the first solo project for Markle as a member of the royal family.    Markle, now the Duchess of Sussex, hosted the reception beside her mother, Doria Ragland, and husband to support the cookbook, which  was inspired by Markle's visit to the Hubb Community Kitchen in North Kensington. Its release is aimed at raising money for the victims of London's Grenfell Tower fire. Guests at the launch event included Intlik Alsaiegh, originally from Baghdad, and Jennifer Fatima Odonkor, who was born and raised in London. The two shared their experiences of spending time with the Duchess in the Hubb kitchen. "She's like one of us. She's in the kitchen cutting things, cleaning. It's part of love. It's love. It's love. And together we did a lot," recalled Alsaiegh. "She said, 'I don't know London. I came from America and I come between to know more about London.' I really enjoyed it and we really enjoyed the time with her. When she comes she kisses everybody. She is very simple. Even for the child, she (mimes kissing) - we love this." "She's got a big heart," echoed Odonkor. "She's come and she just wants to share with everyone. What she came and experienced is who she is and she just wants to share. That's who she is. So yeah, that's why we're sitting here today celebrating, celebrating being together and sharing and caring and eating and enjoying."    The book features recipes from women in the community who prepare food to help and heal. The dishes include coconut chicken curry, aubergine masala, caramelized plum upside-down cake and spiced mint tea.    The 2017 Grenfell Tower fire killed 72 people and prompted nationwide calls for tightening building codes and increasing firefighting capabilities for large apartment blocks.

Friend Says Cruz He Knew Was 'Nice Person'
 
03:08
(16 Feb 2018) A high school senior from Majory Douglas High School recalls a very different Nikolas Cruz, the accused gunman in the mass shooting in Florida. Ethan Trieu says he became friends with Cruz in sixth grade, but they had grown apart. "The Nick I knew like before all this, he was a nice person to me. That's how I remember him," said Trieu. Cruz is accused of killing 17 people on Wednesday during a shooting rampage at the school. Trieu says Cruz changed after the death of his father and didn't really have anyone to turn to. "We all should have been there for him and he had no one to go to. And I feel sorry for him. But I mostly feel sorry for the victims of what happened." Trieu who stopped by a memorial for the victims called the shooting "completely wrong and disgusting." Robert Snyder also visited the makeshift memorial with his son. He said laws need to change and called on Congress to get its act together.

Richard Lawson on his daughter, actress Bianca Lawson: 'She’s a consummate professional.'
 
02:17
(6 Mar 2018) RICHARD LAWSON ON HIS DAUGHTER, ACTRESS BIANCA LAWSON: 'SHE'S A CONSUMMATE PROFESSIONAL' Veteran actor Richard Lawson says he didn't take his daughter's requests to follow in his footsteps too seriously when she began asking at just six-years-old. "At six, seven and eight (she wanted to act). She came to me at six, she says, 'Daddy, I want to be an actor.' And I said, 'OK baby, alright. OK.' 'OK?' 'Yeah.' And I just let it … And she continually, until the age of nine she'd stop me, she sat down in front of me and looked me straight in my eyes and said, 'I'm serious. I want to be an actor!' And I said 'OK.'" he recalled. Lawson's daughter, Bianca Lawson, has had a steady stream of television roles in shows like "The Vampire Dairies," ''Teen Wolf" and "Pretty Little Liars." Most recently, she can be seen in the OWN family drama "Queen Sugar." Lawson said he began laying the groundwork about professionalism early on. "Well the first conversation is about being a professional and we had this conversation and the rules of the conversation was: Whoever was speaking, the other person would listen and when they finish, you acknowledge what you heard and then you have your piece. I will acknowledge what I heard and we go back-and-forth like that. And we've had that conversation like that ever since," said Lawson. Bianca's mother Denise Gordy is also an actress and her stepmother is Tina Knowles - making Beyonce and Solange Knowles her step-sisters. "She became a professional at nine, she was serious," said the proud father. "And she's been the consummate professional. And she's only 38. So that means 29 years she's been (working). So she's probably worked more on most sets than anybody else, even people who are older folk." Richard Lawson stars in BET's new legal drama "In Contempt," which is set to premiere in the U.S. on April 10.

Evicted white farmer returns to his  farm in Zimbabwe
 
04:00
(22 Dec 2017) A white commercial farmer, who was evicted from his farm in Manicaland province in Zimbabwe, returned to the area on Thursday after local community members said they wanted him back. Robert Smart and his family were welcomed back at their home after community members, local politicians and the country's new government intervened to reverse their forceful eviction by heavily armed Zimbabwean riot police back in June. The tobacco and maize grower was evicted from the estate near Rusape, about 200 kilometres (125 miles) east of Harare, to reportedly pave way for a top cleric, Trevor Manhanga, who had links with then president Robert Mugabe. The grabbing of Lesbury Farm came shortly after Mugabe told his supporters at a rally that all remaining white commercial farmers should be kicked off their properties to make way for the ruling Zanu-PF party's youth and his supporters who had no land. But, according to New Zimbabwe.com, president Mnangagwa's special adviser Chris Mutswangwa said on Tuesday that Smart and his son Darryn should not be disturbed in their farming activities. "These farmers are Zimbabweans and they belong to Manicaland province," Mutswangwa was quoted as saying, adding that the country now needed direct investments to boost the economy. Land is a contentious issue in Zimbabwe, where the government of former President Robert Mugabe, starting around 2000, initiated land seizures and evictions of farmers from the country's white minority, which relinquished power in 1980 after a guerrilla war by black nationalists. Mugabe said the often-violent reform program was meant to redistribute resources to poor blacks, but many prime farms instead ended up in the hands of ruling ZANU-PF party leaders, party loyalists, security chiefs, relatives and cronies. More recently, the situation was further complicated by rifts within the ruling party that led to the military intervention and the victory of president Emmerson Mnangagwa over a faction linked to Mugabe's wife Grace, who previously had presidential ambitions. Mnangagwa in his inauguration speech said farmers would be compensated for the seized land but said the program itself would not be reversed.

No Big Deal: Melania Comforts Student at Event
 
02:11
(9 Apr 2018) Melania Trump says spilled water, even on-camera in a famous house, is no big deal. It happened Monday in the Blue Room of the White House, which had been set up like a classroom. Mrs. Trump and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos asked a group of 13 middle school students to write on a board how they were feeling. Toward the end, one student who had just written that he feels "energized," accidentally knocked a drinking glass off a table. He froze, but the first lady put a comforting hand on his back. "No problem," she said. "Don't worry, it's just a water, OK?" Mrs. Trump said she had gathered the children at the White House to hear about their thoughts and challenges, to "help children everywhere do their best." She began the session by writing on the board her own feelings: "Excited." The children, two of whom had been home schooled according to the White House, wrote that they felt, "respected," ''grateful" and "nervous." The oval-shaped Blue Room can seem formidable, with its view of the South Lawn in one direction, the White House's North-facing front door in the other and the portraits of presidents on the walls. The White House said children were ages 10 to 13. The Trumps' son, Barron, is 12.

Olympic gold medalist Shiffrin: I'm no Michael Phelps
 
03:22
(10 Feb 2018) US ski racer Mikaela Shiffrin couldn't help but laugh on Saturday when a reporter asked what her reaction was to being compared to Michael Phelps, the US swimmer who is the most decorated Olympian in history. "You're crazy," the American ski racer replied. "OK, he has, what, 23 medals?" Actually, Phelps' haul is 23 golds - and 28 medals in all. Shiffrin's only medal so far is a gold in slalom at age 18 in 2014 at Sochi. She comes to the Pyeongchang Games with a chance to become the first skier to win that race twice in a row at the Olympics. She will also be among the favourites in Monday's giant slalom, and might also enter the downhill and super-G. For now, though, she'll only commit to entering the slalom and giant slalom. "I would like to compete in everything," she said. "I'm not sure if I'm actually going to have the energy to do that."

David Bowie is...’ exhibition makes last, and largest stop, at Brooklyn Museum
 
05:23
(28 Feb 2018) 'DAVID BOWIE IS' EXHIBITION MAKES LAST, AND LARGEST STOP, AT BROOKLYN MUSEUM Five years after premiering in London, a comprehensive David Bowie exhibit is making its last and most potent stop when it opens at the Brooklyn Museum in New York on Friday (2 MARCH). "David Bowie is" will be one of the biggest the museum has ever done. It includes iconic costumes, video footage, and some offbeat items too. Victoria Broackes, from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, co-curated the exhibit. She explains how Bowie was chosen for the initial 2013 exhibition. "We actually had Bowie on the top of a really short list of people we wanted to cover as a single artist subject at the VNA. But there was very little material, just a couple of collections in the UK, and that was because Bowie had it all, and he had been amassing it over many years. And then in the last ten years or so he was actually buying back material whereas ever came onto the market, which was rarely. So that is so unusual.  I don't know of another artist it's not just a pop artist but he has an archive of 75,000 objects going back to childhood. That is exceptional, "Broackes said. Matthew Yokobosky designed the space at the museum for the massive showing. But when it's over, he's not sure if there's going to be a more permanent place for the material. "The final venue for this exhibition, which is why it had to be just even a little bit more over the top. And you know, what will happen with David's material after is still being discussed." The material includes costumes from many of the Bowie's iconic looks, including Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, Halloween Jack, Major Tom, and the Thin White Duke. Broackes said that these personas were important to Bowie, because they allowed him to go beyond the music. "We're standing in the video section of the exhibition where we look at how Bowie really from his earliest days was interested in how the music looked, as well as how it sounded. And we have the famous 'Ashes to Ashes' costume by Natasha Korniloff, which she worked - she was a particular dance designer, and worked with Bowie going right back into the early days in the late 60s and 70s. And he worked with her again in 1980 for that video, which you know, we have to think it predates MTV. But Bowie was ahead of the pack in videos, as well as most other things," Broackes said. The exhibition includes approximately 500 objects, including 60 performance costumes, photographs, posters, handwritten lyrics, and videos. Yokobosky highlighted some of the must-see areas, which include many of Bowie's influences. "Yeah, you definitely want to hit the music video room, where the entire room is designed like a lightning bolt. You want to hit the black and white years, which the walls are painted to look like the set from this late 70s concert. You definitely want to look for the early material of influence, from German theater, Japanese theater - I mean, he studied a lot." "David Bowie is" opens on Friday (2 MARCH) and runs through July 15.

Russian President Putin arrives in India
 
02:25
(4 Oct 2018) Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday arrived in India for a two-day visit during which the two countries are expected to sign a 5 billion US dollar deal for Russian S-400 missile systems despite the spectre of US sanctions. India's External Affairs Ministry says Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi will hold talks on Friday and oversee the signing of a slew of agreements. India and Russia have a close relationship that dates back to the Cold War, when the US tilted toward Pakistan, India's neighbour and archrival. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said during a visit to New Delhi last month that discussions were continuing over whether to grant waivers to India from US sanctions on Russia and Iran, India's second-largest oil supplier.

Harry and Meghan talk toasties in visit to cafe which supports homeless people
 
03:44
(13 Feb 2018) Prince Harry and fiancee Meghan Markle are continuing their pre-wedding tour of Britain with a trip to Scotland.    Hundreds of well-wishers greeted the couple Tuesday in a cold and windy Edinburgh. After a trip to Edinburgh Castle, one of Scotland's most famous landmarks, the couple met founders and staff at the Social Bite cafe, a social enterprise which offers work to those without their own living accommodation. As they were shown around the kitchen, the couple shared their enthusiasm for cheese and ham toasties, while Harry veered off-topic to question a French member of staff which country she is supporting in the ongoing Six Nations rugby championship.    Leaving the cafe, the fashionable Markle wore a tartan coat by Burberry to honour the plaid for which Scotland is known.    It was the couple's fourth official engagement together as Harry introduces Markle to various parts of Britain.    They plan to meet members of the public and with various organisations involved in community work.    The American actress and Harry are set to marry at Windsor Castle on May 19.

Boys rescued from Thai cave play friendly match in Argentina
 
03:56
(7 Oct 2018) The 12 boys and football coach from Thailand who were found in a partially flooded cave are again capturing the media's attention. The team played a friendly match on Sunday against the River Plate youth football team of Argentina. Following a visit to the club's museums, the youngsters were greeted by great applause as they stepped onto the hallowed turf of the 'Estadio Monumental' - the host site of the 1978 World Cup final between Argentina and the Netherlands. The Thai players, whose team name is 'Wild Boars' wore purple shirts with their names and a symbol of River Plate's team. In the friendly encounter, marked by high level skills on both sides, the visiting team played out a 3-3 draw against the under 13's of the local River Plate side, one of Argentina and South America's footballing powerhouses. The Wild Boars football team participated a day prior in the opening ceremony of the Youth Olympic Games, which are taking place from October 6 to 18 in the South American country. The boys became well-known after they were trapped in a cave on June 23. They were found by two British divers and brought out in a daring rescue mission that ended on July 10. Nearly 4,000 athletes between the ages of 15 and 18 will participate in the games.

Beam me upstate? Shatner visits NY Star Trek set replica
 
03:09
(5 May 2018) BEAM ME UPSTATE? SHATNER VISITS NY STAR TREK SET REPLICA It's like William Shatner got stuck in a Star Trek time warp.    The 87-year-old actor visited a doppelganger of the original Starship Enterprise set in upstate New York for a fans' weekend on Friday (MAY 4).  He wore a dark jacket this time instead of his gold Capt. James T. Kirk shirt, but the command chair was still comfortable and the blinking lights of the bridge were just as he remembered them.    "This set is exactly the way it was 50-odd years ago," Shatner said. "And it's like it's coming back to a house you might have been born in and you look around and it's like, 'Wow! It's bigger and smaller than I remember. And yet it's the same.'"    Shatner said the set reminded him of both the emotional moments and the laughs, like when crew members would forget to open the sliding doors as he approached.    "I'd crash into the door," he said with a laugh. "And then I began to learn to make my own 'whhhoshhh' sound as I went out the door."    The "Captain on the Bridge" weekend runs Friday and Saturday at a tourist attraction boasting replicas of the original series' bridge, transporter room, sick bay and other sets. Tickets ranged as high as $1,500 for a chance to ask Shatner questions on the bridge, though "red shirt" tickets were $85. The attraction's website made clear "Mr. Shatner is NOT leading tours!"    Finding a Star Trek set built at the site of an old dollar store near the Vermont border seems highly illogical, but it was a labor of love for local resident James Cawley. The professional Elvis impersonator began the years-long process of building the sets in 1997 after inheriting a copy of the original Enterprise blueprints from a costume designer on the original show.    At first, Cawley and his crew used the sets to make a series of Star Trek fan films. Now the sets are a tourist attraction.    Dozens of fans waited outside Friday to greet Shatner, whose TV show went off the air almost 50 years ago. Many, like Glenn Coker of Catskill, New York, wore Star Trek uniforms. They said it was still a thrill to see Shatner.    "I'm a sci-fi person. Transporters beam me up. All the different things. Phasers," said Coker, who wore a Capt. Kirk shirt. "Plus, Kirk always got the girl."

China Cracking Down on Christians
 
03:39
(7 Aug 2018) This rubble is all that remains of a church in Zhengzhou, China. Amed with saws, dozens of police and officials smashed the church in January. Scores of churches like these have been dismantled as part of a crack-down on religion by Chinese President Xi Jinping and the communist party. It's the most systematic suppression of Christianity in the country since religious freedom was written into the Chinese constitution in 1982. Authorities have also seized Bibles, and at least one township has encouraged Christians to replace posters of Jesus with portraits of Xi. Those who resist pay the price. After Pastor Jin Mingri refused local authorities' request to install surveillance cameras inside his house church, police individually questioned hundreds of members of the 1,500-person congregation. SOUNDBITE(Mandarin) Jin Mingri, House Church Pastor "It is probably the largest incident of the government using public power to apply pressure on a house church in the past ten years, and it is still going on today." The pressure has pushed several dozen pastors and their families to flee to the United States in recent years, according to the US-based Christian non-profit ChinaAid. 10. Fu at his desk, showing photograph of church being destroyed (UPSOUND: "This is right after President Xi Jinping took power under this new campaign. This church was totally destroyed.") SOUNDBITE (English) Pastor Bob Fu, religious dissident and founder of ChinaAid: "Pastors were being arrested, prayer meeting were being raided, and even sentenced to 13 years, 10 years."              The wife of one pastor under house arrest left for Texas about a year ago. She wished to remain anonymous. SOUNDBITE (Mandarin) Wife of a pastor under house arrest in China "It's painful. The government says that we have religious freedom, but really there is no freedom at all." The crackdown on Christianity is part of a broader push against all religions in China. China's communist party has long been wary of Christianity because of its affiliation with Western political values. Several Chinese human rights lawyers have been jailed for their work. SOUNDBITE (English) Andrew Nathan, China politics expert, Columbia University Professor of political science "The leadership is viewing all these Christian congregations as kind of dry tinder that could spark up in a certain scenario and they think that foreign forces, the United States, the missionaries and so forth would like to spark up this tinder." The city of Henan is seen as the epicenter of the crackdown. House churches that once hosted gatherings of hundreds have now sealed their doors and split into groups of no more than a handful. On a single Sunday morning in March, 31 illegal Christian gathering places were shut down, 200 religious texts were seized an 700 religious banners were taken down. 63-year-old Seventh-Day Adventist, Xu Shijuan held house church gatherings for four years in her living room. She stopped in March, after local officials ordered her to disband the meeting of about two dozen elderly Christians. Though government policies may be at odds with her faith, she reconciles the difference. SOUNDBITE (Mandarin) Xu Shijuan, a 63-year-old Seventh-Day Adventist: "Christians pray for the country and for the people, hoping that our country will become better, prosperous and strong."

Stormy Daniels Lawyer Confident About Case

(20 Apr 2018) Outside a California court on Friday, Stormy Daniels' attorney Michael Avenatti said he was confident that the civil case would move forward without delay. Despite Michael Cohen's efforts to postpone the case after FBI agents raided his office and residence, Avenatti said the court observed "gaping holes" in the application submitted by Mr. Cohen and President Donald Trump. Avenatti said outside court it was "clear to me Michael Cohen and the president do not want to publicly state" that Cohen intends to take the Fifth. The amendment offers protection against self-incrimination. Avenatti said his belief is that an indictment for Mr. Cohen will be released within the next 90 days.

Afrikaner town launches its own digital currency
 
06:22
(15 Jul 2018) LEAD IN A rural enclave in South Africa, set up after the end of apartheid, is launching its own digital currency. The Afrikaner town Orania already uses its own money and it's now teaming up with an economist to roll out an electronic version. STORY-LINE Although Monja Strydom lives in South Africa, she doesn't use the national currency, the rand, when shopping. Strydom has lived almost her whole life in Orania, a semi-independent Afrikaner community in the northern Cape province. The method of payment here is the Ora and an electronic version is now being introduced. Carel Boshoff is the President of the Orania Movement. "In the first place it is about self-reliance which sprouts from a determined sense of responsibility, together with carrying out our own labour, our own work. This has in an interesting way everything to do with the use of the Ora, an internal coupon, an internal currency - in inverted commas - which is now becoming an e-Ora, which can be used for electronic transactions. This reiterates the concept of self-reliance – to create a way of stimulating and strengthening an internal economy," he says.   When South Africa's infamous apartheid segregation policy was dismantled 25 years ago, a group of Afrikaners founded their own separate community. The country's liberal constitution allows for the right to self-determination of any community sharing a common cultural and language heritage. Orania, which is 8000 hectares in size and is on private land, runs its own municipal services. For its 1600 residents, the E-Ora is another step towards independence. Dawie Roodt is an economist who as been advising Orania on their E-Ora development. "So as money evolved over time transaction costs have been coming down quite dramatically. And that's a very important contributing reason why the world is as rich as it is today and probably why the world is going to grow even richer – because the costs of transactions have been coming down. For that reason it is so important that you always stay with the most recent developments, technological developments. And I think the most recent technological development certainly is the so-called electronic money, or so-called crypto money and maybe even private money. And as transactions keep on coming down, I think that we are going to see that economies do more transactions, and more transactions in the end means more economic activity and more wealth creation," he says. The Ora is essentially a coupon pegged to the South African Rand. Transaction costs for the E-Ora, or electronic ora, are only 0.5 percent which compares favourably to bank charges in South Africa and globally. To use the E-Ora Strydom loads credit onto her E-Ora account at the Orania Chamber of Commerce. She can then make purchases without the need for cash. "It's very easy. So I came here literally with my phone and bought the things I needed. I didn't need to bring my purse. And I could be anywhere and do a transaction so that makes it very easy. And the transaction costs are very low. So those are the two positive things about the E-Ora," she says. The South African government is currently formulating a position paper on cryptocurrency. Deputy Governor of the Reserve Bank, Francois Groepe clarifies the position of South Africa's central bank on the E-Ora. But transitioning from the Ora to the electronic Ora opens up possibilities of further independence for this community.

Human rights lawyer, Amal Clooney, tells grads to be courageous

(10 May 2018) AMAL CLOONEY URGES GRADS TO BE COURAGEOUS Human rights lawyer Amal Clooney urged young students at Vanderbilt University to have courage because it inspires others and creates rights for future generations, using examples of some of the clients she has worked with around the world. Clooney spoke Thursday (10 MAY 2018) in Nashville, Tennessee, for senior day, a part of the university's commencement activities, and was given the Nichols-Chancellor's Medal. Clooney admitted that she had never been to Tennessee before, but said her husband, actor George Clooney, told her the university had a good basketball team. She noted that students at Vanderbilt who staged sit-ins during the Civil Rights era showed their courage to fight for equal rights. But she said courage is still needed to address conditions for women, journalists and LGBT people worldwide.

Jake Gyllenhaal talks women's march at premiere of Paul Dano's directorial debut 'Wildlife'
 
04:37
(21 Jan 2018) JAKE GYLLENHAAL TALKS WOMEN'S MARCH AT PREMIERE OF PAUL DANO'S DIRECTORIAL DEBUT Jake Gyllenhaal says that Saturday's women's marches show that "the movement has grown bigger in a whole different way." The actor had been at the march one year ago in Washington, D.C. with his sister Maggie, and spoke Saturday afternoon at the Sundance Film Festival premiere of Paul Dano's directorial debut, "Wildlife." "Given everything that had happened last year and seeing how far everything has come this year – I know that the march itself wasn't with so many -- didn't have the same numbers. But at the same time what I think what has happened is that the movement has grown bigger in a whole different way. And so you can feel that," he said. As for Gyllenhaal's role in the current movement, he says: "Uh. To listen. That's what my sister says. So I listen to my sister." Gyllenhaal stars in "Wildlife" opposite Carey Mulligan as a family in the 1960s whose lives are falling apart. Dano adapted the novel into a screenplay with his partner Zoe Kazan over the course of several years -- during which time he acted alongside Gyllenhaal twice. "We were making a movie together many years ago – not many years ago but a few years ago called 'Prisoners.' Paul said to me he was writing a screenplay. We had time in between scenes we were shooting, while we were shooting in Atlanta. And I didn't really think much of it. I just thought wow, that's so great he's being courageous and sort of breaking into new ground," Gyllenhaal said. "And then about two years later, we were doing another movie together – this movie called 'Okja.' And he said I'm putting this thing together. I think I'm going to make this movie. I want to direct it. And I said, I'd love to read it. And I read it and I thought it was beautifully written. And the rest is sort of here right now." Gyllenhaal said that working alongside friends like Kazan and Dano was "sort of ideal." "When you get to chill with your friends and make a movie, it's pretty incredible," he said. Mulligan said she trusted Dano immediately as a director. "He's got such good instincts, you know? And I think that's why I felt immediately comfortable, and I knew that I could just trust him. Because I knew that the instincts that he has and the choices that he makes in his own work are so good that he would only guide another actor to make similarly good choices. So it was brilliant," she said. Dano -- a Sundance veteran -- said he was nervous and excited about the premiere. "We've been here many, many times. The first film that I ever acted in came here to Sundance. And now the first film I've made has, so it's great," he said. Sundance runs through 28 January.

Avenatti: Recordings May Be President's Downfall
 
03:21
(30 May 2018) Michael Avenatti, the attorney for porn actress Stormy Daniels, says audio recordings made by President Trump's attorney Michael Cohen will "pose a host of problems for Michael Cohen and for the president." Avenatti's comments came after a New York judge set a June 15 deadline for lawyers for Trump's personal lawyer and Trump to make attorney-client privilege claims over data seized in April raids, saying it was important not to delay the criminal investigation. U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood said a special taint team of prosecutors will make determinations after that date. Wood presided over a hearing at which a prosecutor revealed that the contents of a shredder and two Blackberry devices were all that remained to be turned over to a court-appointed special master screening evidence for attorney-client privilege. Avenatti says the data does involve Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford. Daniels has said she had sex once with Trump in 2006. Trump denies it. Also reviewing the materials are lawyers for Cohen, the president and the Trump Organization. Cohen's lawyers asked to be allowed to review materials from the April 9 raids of Cohen's office and home until mid-July, but Wood said she had to balance their needs to protect their client with the need of prosecutors to pursue their criminal fraud case against Cohen. Stephen Ryan, an attorney for Cohen, argued that Avenatti had acted outrageously by releasing banking information related to Cohen publicly and by criticizing Cohen in dozens of television appearances. Avenatti defended his actions to reporters outside the court. Wood noted that Avenatti would have to stop making comments about his perception of what he believed was wrongdoing by Cohen if he wanted to formally intervene in Cohen's efforts to protect materials seized from violations of attorney-client privilege. After the hearing, Avenatti formally withdrew his request to appear in the case. The raids on Cohen were triggered in part by a referral from special counsel Robert Mueller, who separately is looking into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Ex-rebel commanders stay after govt forces take over Syrian town
 
04:06
(18 Jul 2018) Months after the Syrian military regained control of some rebel-held areas across the country, co-existence between the military and remaining former rebel fighters is now a new reality. One of the first Syrian towns to carry weapons against the government in the country's seven-year conflict is now home to what some are calling "a reconciliation" movement. Talbiseh is the central province of Homs and is on the highway that cuts through Syria from the Jordanian border all the way to the northern city of Aleppo, Syria's largest and once commercial center. It is about 16 kilometres north of the provincial capital of Homs, which was once called the "capital of the Syrian revolution" before rebels surrendered in 2014. The town has a partially ethnic Turkomen community that is linked to Turkey, one of the rebels' strongest supporters. Since 2011, Talbiseh enjoyed a brief truce after it became part of a four regions de-escalation zone agreed upon by Russia, Iran and Turkey who back rival groups in Syria's conflict. The area also lived under a tight government siege. But according to one commander in the area, after years of war, rebel factions couldn't agree on how to face the advance of the Syrian military, and the whole idea of reconciliation is just a euphemism for surrender. On May 18, government forces marched into Talbiseh and rebels handed over their weapons. "We can't say that we've really reached a reconciliation, in the true meaning of the word," Col. Youssef Sibahi says. Sibahi is on speaking terms with a former rebel commander and army defector, Col. Omar Melhem, who he says helped coordinate the deal to stop the fighting. Melhem now identifies himself as a retired army officer. Melhem says war only brought death and destruction to his hometown and the deal he reached with the government earlier this year aimed to end the misery of Talbiseh's residents. Melhem says he was the military commander of Jaysh al-Tawheed, the largest faction in the region with some 3,000 men. He is credited with ridding the area of Islamic State group in 2015 and al-Qaeda-linked fighters a year earlier and says he and other townspeople got tired of the war. He says rebel fighters became disillusioned with foreign interference in Syria's conflict, and with all the death. Syria's conflict broke out in mid-March 2011 with Arab Spring-inspired protests in the southern city of Daraa. Within days, the protests spread around the country and after a two month government crackdown, gunmen in Talbiseh and nearby Rastan, began fighting back using automatic rifles and rocket-propelled-grenades. The conflict is the deadliest in the region with some 400,000 people killed. During a tour by an Associated Press team in Talbiseh, the town was mostly made up of two-story homes many of which were marked with bullet holes and damaged by shells. Residents spoke about years of bombing and air strikes and life without services such as water and electricity. Many former insurgents in the streets said they are banned from leaving Talbiseh although they move around in the town freely. The town is mostly made up of farmers and truck drivers. Talbiseh once had a population of 70,000 but is now home to just a few thousand who decided to stay despite harsh living conditions. Hayat al-Ghard who stayed in town with her husband and seven daughters hopes their misery will end soon. She says she prayed to God they would be freed of the siege.

Journalist on Vigano claims that pope knew about McCarrick allegations
 
03:52
(27 Aug 2018) Italian journalist, Marco Tosatti confirmed on Monday the authenticity of an 11-page text by the Vatican's retired ambassador to the US where he claims Pope Francis knew in 2013 about sexual misconduct allegations against the former archbishop of Washington, Theodore McCarrick. Tosatti, a journalist for the conservative Italian newspaper "La Verita'" (The Truth) and Vatican expert, said he was with Vigano when the he wrote the document on Wednesday. "Some weeks ago he called me and he told me that he had something important to say," the journalist told The Associated Press. Tosatti said he and Vigano "worked for three hours and more, reading and re-reading and writing and re-writing until the document was completed." Pope Francis declined on Sunday to confirm or deny the claims by Vigano that he knew about the sexual misconduct allegations in 2013 but rehabilitated McCarrick anyway. Francis said the 11-page text by Vigano, which reads in part like a homophobic attack on Francis and his allies, "speaks for itself" and that he wouldn't comment on it. The National Catholic Register and another conservative site, LifeSiteNews, published Vigano's text on Sunday as the pope wrapped up a two-day visit to Ireland dominated by the clerical sex abuse scandal. Vigano, 77, a conservative whose hardline anti-gay views are well known, urged the reformist pope to resign over what he called Francis' own culpability in covering up McCarrick's crimes. Vigano wrote the letter because "as a bishop he felt to have a duty toward the Church and the Catholics," and secondly because "he couldn't have a clear conscience unless he spoke," said Tosatti. The letter also contains a lengthy diatribe about homosexuals and liberals in the Catholic church. It often reads like an ideological manifesto, naming all of Francis' known supporters in the US hierarchy as being complicit in a cover-up of McCarrick's misdeeds. Francis accepted McCarrick's resignation as cardinal last month, after a US church investigation determined that an accusation he had sexually abused a minor was credible. Since then, another man has come forward to say McCarrick began molesting him starting when he was 11, and several former seminarians have said McCarrick abused and harassed them when they were in seminary. The accusations have created a crisis of confidence in the US and Vatican hierarchy, because it was apparently an open secret that McCarrick regularly invited seminarians to his New Jersey beach house, and into his bed. Coupled with the devastating allegations of sex abuse and cover-up in a recent Pennsylvania grand jury report, which found that 300 priests had abused more than 1,000 children over 70 years in six dioceses, the scandal has led to calls for heads to roll and for a full Vatican investigation into who knew what and when about McCarrick.

Brits in Bulgaria won't budge after Brexit
 
05:10
(20 May 2018) LEADIN: Britain may be leaving the European Union, but many Brits living in northern Bulgaria seem determined to remain. There are over 4,000 UK citizens registered as permanent residents in Bulgaria and more than half of those are in the north. Most arrived here after 2007 - the year when Bulgaria joined the EU - searching for a cheaper and simpler way of life. STORYLINE: Northern Bulgaria, the region between the Balkan Mountains and the Danube river, is one of poorest regions in the EU, according to Eurostat. But it has become home for a number of British expats searching for a cheaper and simpler way of life. Nick and Nicky Kinson run a camping site near the city of Veliko Tarnovo. In 2007 they were one of the first British couples to buy property in this area, the year Bulgaria joined the European Union. "When we started it was just a wheat field. It was agricultural land so there was no electricity, no water, no trees, no garden, no swimming pool, no nothing. And we slightly built it up over the last 10 years, just adding a little bit every year and every year. Now it's progressed to, or grown into a beautiful little oasis in the middle of beautiful Bulgaria", explains Nick.   Nicky Kinson fell in love with the country at first sight and has always felt very welcome here. "The local people all treat us like Bulgarians now, in fact, they even say we're becoming a little like Bulgarians, which we take as a compliment", she says. The Kinsons say that Brexit isn't worrying them and they are not considering moving back to the UK. "The UK embassy in Sofia has said that the rights you have today will remain the same once Brexit happens. So, I don't think there will be any major changes particularly for us and hopefully not, because obviously we enjoy living here and we enjoy doing what we are doing and providing what we provide," says Nick. Nick and Nicky are not the only Brits who have chosen to move to northern Bulgaria. 4,000 UK citizens have registered as permanent residents in Bulgaria, and more than half live in the northern region, according to the Office of National statistics. In contrast, Bulgarians have been leaving this area in droves. Because of the high levels of unemployment and a depressed local economy, only one third of the people in the country now live in the north, despite it covering half of the country's territory. One of the villages most popular amongst Brits is Hotnitsa - it's a 20 minute drive from the largest city in this area called Veliko Tarnovo. Shirley Stevenson and her partner Douglas Smith moved here two years ago, at first attracted by the low property prices. Shirley has opened 'Bits and Bobs', a small second-hand shop in the centre of Hotnitsa, where people can sell their unwanted items. With Brexit in mind, they are making sure they don't have to move back after the UK leaves the EU. "We are in the process of doing our residency and then the citizenship will hopefully follow," says Shirley. The area around Hotnitsa is full of abandoned villages, houses left to crumble and an aging population. The number of residents in northern Bulgaria decreased by 30,000 people in 2017 alone, according to official statistics. Around the city of Veliko Tarnovo there are 58 empty villages with no remaining inhabitants. However, in recent years locals are proud to say that Hotnitsa has become a centre for British expats who have renovated old properties and are actively involved in the community.

Touring with Justin Timberlake and traveling with son: Jessica Biel talks summer with family
 
04:58
(6 Sep 2018) TOURING WITH JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE AND TRAVELING WITH SON: JESSICA BIEL TALKS SUMMER WITH FAMILY Jessica Biel has had a summer full of family and travel as she and son Silas have criss-crossed Europe with her husband, Justin Timberlake on his "Man of the Woods" tour. The actress has no complaints. "I love to travel. Travel is like my - like my happy place, like where I want to spend my money," said Biel. With her three-year-old son in tow, she admits traveling has "its challenges," but is grateful for the "great education" it's been for him. Biel says it's allowed her and Timberlake Jr. to enjoy conversations about maps, countries and locations. "You know, he's now talking about Copenhagen. He's telling his grandma, 'I'm in Stockholm.' Coming out of a three-year-old's mouth," she said. Though Silas may be too young to take in everything, she's convinced "something is getting in there." "No, he didn't look at the Mona Lisa. He was in his stroller looking at his iPad. But something is getting in there. I really believe it," said Biel. "I believe that somewhere cellularly he's absorbing the history and the masters that painted these incredible things and these frescoes and these beautiful architectural feats." Beyond the cultural exposure Silas has been getting, Biel said traveling has also taught her son how to try new things. "He even says things now to me like, 'Are we going to go have an adventure today?' I'm like, 'Yes, we are,'" she said. "And you know kids, it's hard for them to try new things and so I feel like it's those small little successes, those little things are huge." As for watching her husband play throughout the summer, Biel said she hasn't tired of seeing him perform. "Oh yeah. I've probably seen the show 30 times. I mean minimal. Minimally, at least 30 times. Never gets old. It just doesn't. He's the best," she said. "Truly. I mean that. I'm biased, of course, but I think also, if I saw the show completely not knowing him, I think it's the best show. Ever." Biel is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie Emmy for her performance in "The Sinner."  She has yet to pick a dress for the event. "I don't know what I'm wearing," she said. "It's funny, you think that you would do these things way ahead of time, but fashion is changing so quickly." Biel said that her Emmy dress fitting is scheduled for September 14 or 15 with the event taking place on September 17.

Jennifer Garner returns to the action genre with 'Peppermint'
 
01:41
(25 Apr 2018) JENNIFER GARNER RETURNS TO THE ACTION GENRE WITH 'PEPPERMINT' Jennifer Garner says her latest film strikes a good balance between action and drama. Speaking at Cinemacon in Las Vegas on Tuesday (24 APRIL 2018), where she's promoting "Peppermint," Garner said that balance was down to the film's director Pierre Morel, who previously helmed 2008 action hit "Taken." "If you're just doing action and you're kind of running around killing people, then it just, you know, it's all gratutious and it's not, you know, it feels flimsy. This, the drama was every bit as strong as the action and I was in that great solid hands when Pierre Morel," said Garner. "I knew that he understood that balance and he understood both sides of the equation." In the film, Garner plays a mother who awakens from a coma after her husband and daughter are killed in a brutal attack on the family. With nothing to lose, she sets out to deliver her own personal brand of justice. It's a revenge thriller that is action-packed, which the 46-year-old star - who previously showed off her action chops in 2005's "Elektra" - prepared "almost every day" for. "I did Body by Simone which is a dance cardio and weight training and that was the main workout that I did," said Garner.  "And then otherwise, I boxed, I did martial arts I did... I was with Valerie Waters. You know, it was kind of all over the place." By the time it came to filming, Garner said she "felt really ready for it." "I trained really hard and I have, you know, my stunt double and I have worked together almost 20 years. She's like a sister - Shauna Duggins. And so to get to train with her and to go back to being part of the stunt community was awesome." "Peppermint" is set to be released in the U.S. on 7 September 2018.

Teen Choice celebs remember the biggest teen stars growing up
 
03:03
(20 Aug 2018) TEEN CHOICE CELEBS REMEMBER THE BIGGEST TEEN STARS GROWING UP Celebrities attending the recent Teen Choice Awards in LA named Miley Cyrus, Raven-Symone and Christina Aguilera when asked who their heroes were growing up. "A Wrinkle in Time" teen star Storm Reid said her "number one is Zendaya." The 15-year-old actress, who will appear in the new drama TV series "Euphoria" with Zendaya in 2019, said she's always admired Zendaya's work. "To be working with her now is really amazing and I feel like she's just a great young woman and just like a great role model not only to me but to others," said Reid. Reid said Zendaya promised to always be there for her, explaining: "Because she (Zendaya) went through it, so if I had any questions or needed any advice, she would be there." "Cloak and Dagger" actress Olivia Holt said she was "completely obsessed" with Hilary Duff. "'Lizzie McGuire' was the ultimate jam. I think I had every piece of 'Lizzie McGuire' merchandise, still do," admitted Holt. "I had them all like up in a little box because I was like, I need to keep these in a memoir for the girl who like I looked up to as a kid." "Riverdale" actor Mark Consuelos was more of a sports fan, but also enjoyed the cop show "CHiPS" and its lead actor Erik Estrada, while Fifth Harmony singer Lauren Jauregui was a fan of a few former Disney stars. "Well, I loved to Miley Cyrus. I watched a lot of 'Hannah Montana'," said Jauregui. "I love Raven-Symone. I loved Christina Aguilera a lot, Pink. I loved Hayley Williams. I don't know, there's a bunch of different people that I thought were really cool from like different worlds, yeah." Fellow Fifth Harmony star Normani Kordei says she's "influenced by Khalid tremendously." "As an artist but also as a friend, as a human being," she said. "He is probably the most genuine friend that I have in the industry right now even aside from the industry, just a special person. Anybody that gets the opportunity to meet him or be in his world, anytime he walks into a room he literally lights it up. It's infectious and he's one of the greatest people that I know." Kordei worked with the R and B star on the single "Love Lies," which was released earlier this year. Finally, singer Sabrina Carpenter was a big fan of the former "Mickey Mouse Club" member, Christina Aguilera. "She was one of my biggest teen idols and Britney Spears," said Carpenter. "Wow, that's so hard. I started to grow up like in the world of Hilary Duff and Raven (Symone) and all those amazing folks too, so there's a lot though."

Melissa Benoist discusses new atmosphere on ‘Supergirl’ set following showrunner’s exit amid sexual
 
01:18
(15 Jan 2018) 'SUPERGIRL' STAR 'OPTIMISTIC' FOLLOWING SHOWRUNNER'S EXIT "Supergirl" star Melissa Benoist says there's a new atmosphere on set following the exit of showrunner Andrew Kreisberg. Variety reported that Kreisberg was fired in November amid accusations of sexual harassment and inappropriate touching from 19 former and current employees. "I'm very optimistic. I actually experienced, I think at least in my situation, the atmosphere on the set of 'Supergirl' has really changed and we have a lot of women coming to the forefront and a lot of really amazing men supporting them. And it feels like everyone has recovered with a broader outlook and more accepting eye towards each other and kind of this mass exodus to step in another person's shoes for the day and, you know, have empathy and listen to each other. So I'm really optimistic," said Benoist. Kreisberg's shows run on the CW network. He's also an executive producer of "The Flash," "Arrow" and "DC's Legends of Tomorrow. Benoist spoke at the Television Critics Association in Pasadena where she's promoting the upcoming "Waco," a six-part series on the Paramount network chronicling the 51-day standoff with the religious group the Branch Davidians.

Last time I was here, I was in and out like a bank robbery. It was quick. It was brief. But this experience, I was a little lagged, so I've just kind of been sleeping." 3.

SOUNDBITE (English) ASAP Rocky, Actor-recording artist: "From my perspective, we have been saying this – I'll reiterate. It's one of those tales -- you never get to hear the good kid from the hood's side of the story. It's all these clichés and people who have assumptions and preconceived notions. I think it gives you more Intel, insight on like the circumstances and how unfair the law can be sometimes, when it's concerning black kids from the hood and whatnot. I read the book growing up, so it was important to be in that film. I can say even while reading the book, I never liked my character personally. Like I just don't agree with – I like the character, I liked playing him. But morally, he and I are – you know. And I got to work with her. It was crazy. Jennifer and Jeffrey and man, Nas, and Mandler, he's just so cool. It was a little intimidating, but I felt comfortable. I'm sorry, I'm ranting on. I didn't get to say what it was like working with these guys. It was – forget it. It was amazing! I'm speechless!" 6.

Rocky: "It's like sour at first, then sweet. With a little bit of crack, marijuana in with that."

(16 Apr 2018) RICKY MARTIN, VICTORIA BECKHAM AMONG THE STAR-STUDDED CROWD AT EVA LONGORIA'S WALK OF FAME CEREMONY Mom-to-be Eva Longoria honored her husband, Jose "Pepe" Baston, for making all her dreams come true as she received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame Monday (16 APRIL). "The last 20 years, my career has given me so much. It's given me friends, it's given me opportunities, awards, and honors. But then life gave me Pepe and his beautiful children, Tali, who is here, and Jose and Machie. And it's with Pepe that I realized I can make all my dreams come true, including my son, who is on the way. And I'm happy he's here with us in this moment. So thank you amor for completing all of my dreams," Longoria told the crowd. The 43-year-old actress-producer, who is expecting her first child in the next few months, got emotional during the star ceremony which included heartfelt speeches from Ricky Martin, Anna Faris and Felicity Huffman. "Oh my gosh. I think the pregnancy made my emotions heightened, but at the same time, it was just overwhelming for me to feel today and for this to happen. I really have no words. I'm still in shock right now," said Longoria in an interview after the event. "I can't wait to see the photos and show him, you know, he was here when this happened," she added of her baby boy. Longoria recalled one of her first gigs as an extra in Martin's "Shake Your Bon-Bon" video. The pair recently teamed up for a charity gala to raise money for relief efforts in Hurricane-devastated Puerto Rico. "Now you're a miracle maker. You've always been, but now your baby is coming. You deserve nothing but the best, Eva. I could go on forever talking about everything. But you're incredible, you're special, you're light. Wonder Woman, get out of the way! It's Eva Longoria here, come on! God bless you. God bless your family. You're the best. I look up to you. I'm older than you, but I look up to you. You're beautiful. You're incredible. You are the best," gushed Martin. Her "Desperate Housewives" co-star Felicity Huffman spoke about Longoria's many political and philanthropic efforts and praised her supportive nature.   "The first year 'Desperate Housewives' was on the air, all the ladies were nominated for an award and the dynamics on that set were tricky. And whoever won this award might be in for some serious flak. So my name was called and I instantly felt Eva's arms around me and she whispered in my ear, 'This is so good for all of us.' So there's no selfishness with Eva. If she loves you, you are family," said Huffman. Longoria's friend Victoria Beckham was also on hand to celebrate her big day. Up next, she stars alongside Anna Faris and Eugenio Derbez in a remake of the 1987 comedy "Overboard." "I'm so proud to be your best friend, although I suspect that you may have a few of them! They may be here. And I'll express my jealousy later. But, and I also know that you're going to be the most amazing mother and I'm so happy for you and I love you and nobody deserves this more," said Faris. "Overboard" opens in US theaters on May 4.

(1 Mar 2018) KEITH RICHARDS APOLOGIZES TO JAGGER FOR VASECTOMY COMMENT Keith Richards says he regrets saying Mick Jagger needed a vasectomy after recently having his eighth child. In a story posted Wednesday (1 MARCH 2018) morning, The Wall Street Journal magazine reported that Richards said "it's time for the snip - you can't be a father at that age. Those poor kids!" The 74-year-old Jagger welcomed his eighth child in December 2016. But Richards says "I deeply regret the comments I made about Mick" in a statement released Wednesday afternoon. He says his words "were completely out of line" and that he apologized to the Rolling Stone frontman in person. Richards famously wrote about his issues with Jagger in his 2010 memoir, "Life."
