ryan reynolds would ditch blake lively for steve martin
ryan reynolds and blake lively have a notoriously delightfulmarriage, and two daughters together to boot. but in a new profile withmr. porter journal, deadpool 2 star reynolds shared a tidbit about the one person he’d want to get to stay with in a hotel room for the night who is most definitely not his wife: legendary comedian steve martin.reynolds is an old-school martin fan, reminiscing in the interview about seeing (and loving) martin in the 1987 classic comedy planes, trains and automobiles, which he memorized “verbatim” as a kid. and even today, martin’s style cues in that movie inspire him — so much that he’s now the face of the piaget watch brand, which is also what martin wore in the film.which brings us back to his dream hotel date. “if i had to trade my piaget for anything, it would definitely be for one night in a sh—y motel room with steve martin,” reynolds joked to mr. porter journal. “i think that’s a pretty good deal, too. yeah, pillows and all. ‘those aren’t pillows!’” (the joke is a reference to a scene in planes, trains, and automobiles.)piaget watches retail for many thousands of dollars, and reynolds also noted in his interview that he intends to pass his down to his first daughter, james, as something of an heirloom. but someone get steve martin on the phone — surely he’d be willing to hang out with the man behind the deadpool mask for much less than the cost of a high-end watch.

ireland vote shows google and facebook can't self-regulate
ideascarolan is an adviser to the open data charter and a senior associate at the open data institute. she is also a founder of the transparent referendum initiative, which aims to make the may 25 referendum on reproductive rights in ireland open, honest and fair.it takes about 20 minutes to walk from the european headquarters of facebook and google, near dublin’s docks, to the seat of the irish government. if you walk that route today you will pass 50 or 60 posters petitioning you to vote for or against this week’s referendum on legalizing abortion. take your phone out of your pocket, and you will be equally bombarded with digital ads.posters are highly regulated in ireland, but there are no rules governing the videos interrupting your facebook feed or the images popping up in your gaming app. this regulatory blindspot is made more worrying by the nature of online ads, which can be highly targeted based on analysis of data about a person—as we saw with the cambridge analytica scandal. britain’s vote to leave the eu and the 2016 u.s. presidential election showed us how ads can share misinformation under the radar. ads can also be purchased from abroad. it is predictable—but still depressing—that groups both inside and outside of ireland have exploited these digital loopholes to try to influence the irish abortion referendum.with a strong constitution that can only be changed by referendum, irish people frequently vote on social issues. a 1995 referendum legalized ...

how stacey abrams' win could change the democratic party
ideasmelissa harris-perry is a political commentator and scholar, and a professor at wake forest university.dorian warren is the president of the center for community change action, the vice-president of the center for community change, and a fellow at the roosevelt institute.stacey abrams made history this week when she won the democratic primary for governor of georgia. she now has the chance to become the first black woman governor in america. abrams secured the nomination decisively, defeating her primary opponent — “the other stacey” — by a 3-to-1 margin and racking up more than 400,000 votes. meanwhile, it is still unclear preciesly whom abrams will face in the general election. the republican candidates, casey cagle and brian kemp, are now in a runoff after a crowded primary race. but abrams, it’s important to note, got more votes than both cagle and kemp combined. this was not a small win — it was huge.while historic and decisive, it shouldn’t be surpsing that a black democrat defeated a white democrat, stacey evans, in a southern primary. abrams is what a southern democrat looks like. for years, political strategists like steve phillips, author of brown is the new white, how the demographic revolution has created a new american majority, have been pleading with the democratic national committee to shift their focus to candidates of color, especially women of color. abrams’ victory in georgia may have done for the dnc what meghan markle’s wedding to ...

donald trump signs huge rollback of bank rules
president donald trump has signed the biggest rollback of financial regulation since the dodd-frank act was enacted in 2010, freeing smaller banks from the burden of being labeled too big to fail.surrounded by lawmakers and financial regulators at the white house on thursday, trump put pen to paper on the product of years of industry lobbying and sensitive talks on capitol hill to gain bipartisan support needed to get it through the senate.“this is all about the dodd-frank disaster, and they fixed it or at least have gone a long way to fixing it,” trump said at the signing ceremony. “it’s a big deal, a big deal for our country. today is truly a great day for america.”the law gives regional and community banks relief from rules that they’ve decried as burdensome and costly. it raises to $250 billion from $50 billion the asset threshold for lenders to face stricter federal reserve oversight as systemically important financial institutions. that would free companies such as american express co. and suntrust banks inc. from higher compliance costs associated with being considered too big to fail.small banks are also freed from volcker rule restrictions and the legislation makes a technical fix that would let some investment firms like blackrock inc. continue trading with some funds.among the biggest losers are bigger regional banks such as capital one financial corp. and pnc financial services group inc., which would keep their sifi designations. wall street banks lik...

donald trump pardons late boxer jack johnson
(washington) — president donald trump has granted a rare posthumous pardon to boxing’s first black heavyweight champion more than 100 years after what trump said many feel was a racially motivated injustice.jack johnson was convicted in 1913 by an all-white jury for violating the mann act, which made it illegal to transport women across state lines for “immoral” purposes.trump was joined by boxer lennox lewis and actor sylvester stallone as he announced the decision.johnson is a legendary figure in boxing, who crossed over into popular culture decades ago with biographies, dramas and documentaries following the civil rights era.he died in 1946. his great-great niece had been pressing for a posthumous pardon.sen. john mccain and former senate majority leader harry reid had also pushed johnson’s case for years.

melinda gates: what graduates need to hear at commencement
ideasgates is the co-chair of the bill & melinda gates foundation.this spring is a special one for our family. my daughter, jenn, graduates from college this june, and my son, rory, graduates from high school a few days earlier.even when i’m not playing the role of proud mother, i tend to be a fan of commencement season — because i also tend to be a fan of commencement speeches. they’re a unique chance for america’s thinkers, doers and builders to offer a more personal reflection on the world as they see it and their hopes for the generation that will inherit it.i used to think that the best commencement addresses are the ones that leave audiences feeling charged with a sense of possibility about the lives they’ll lead and the mark they will make on the future. but this year, i’m hoping for something more.you often hear the refrain that commencements are about beginnings — and that, for the graduates, the best still lies ahead. graduates are encouraged to dream big, bold dreams and to imagine that when they cross the stage and enter the next phase of their lives, they’ll be stepping into a world full of possibility.what i wish we heard more of is what these speakers plan to do to ensure that vision of the future has a place in it for every graduate.as much as we like to tell young people that they will go as far as their talents will take them, it’s no secret that the modern american workplace still works better for some people than for others. the results a...

trump praises nfl's new national anthem kneeling policy
president donald trump praised the nfl’s decision to fine teams whose players kneel in protest during the national anthem before games, saying that those who do “maybe… shouldn’t be in the country.”“you should stand proudly for the national anthem — or you shouldn’t be playing,” trump said in an interview with fox & friends on thursday morning. “you shouldn’t be there. maybe you shouldn’t be in the country. you have to stand proudly for the national anthem and the nfl owners did the right thing.”`you have to stand proudly for the national anthem. you shouldn't be playing, you shouldn't be there. maybe they shouldn't be in the country…the nfl owners did the right thing` -president @realdonaldtrumppic.twitter.com/bt36t4ex5u— fox & friends (@foxandfriends) may 24, 2018the nfl signed off on a new policy wednesday that gives players the right to stay in their locker rooms during the national anthem, but requires that they stand if they’re on the field. teams face fines if their players don’t comply.the kneeling movement was started back in 2016 by san francisco 49ers quarterback colin kaepernick as a way to protest racial injustice and police brutality. while kaepernick didn’t play in the nfl last year, his silent protest swept through the league, with many players choosing to kneel or link arms during the national anthem.trump frequently lambasted the nfl and the players who decided to kneel, saying they should be fired or suspended from t...

stephen king is far from afraid of the access he lost to president donald trump’s tweets.following the court ruling that trump can’t block users on twitter, high-profile tweeter (and world-renowned author) king stopped by wednesday’s late show to tell stephen colbert about getting blocked by the president months ago.“now we’ve got a president who blocked me on twitter, except the court says he can’t block anybody. so my question is, ‘do i really want to follow that guy? i don’t think so,'” king said to colbert. according to the horror author, whose 4.82 million twitter followers know he’s no fan of the potus, he was blocked eight or nine months ago. the tweet that was the final straw? a pointed insult.“i might have said he had his head somewhere where a certain yoga position would be necessary to get it there,” he joked to colbert.once he was blocked, king got personal. “i blocked him from seeing my next movie, which was it, so no balloons for donald trump.” king had plenty more to say on the subject of tweets fired out of the oval office. and he even went on to tell colbert that he blocked vice president mike pence.watch the full clip below.

donald trump cancels nuclear summit with north korean leader
president donald trump suddenly announced thursday he is pulling out of the meeting with north korean leader kim jong un, claiming it was “inappropriate” to hold the summit based on recent statements from the regime.“sadly, based on the tremendous anger and and open hostility displayed in your recent statement, i feel it is inappropriate, at this time, to have this long planned meeting,” trump said in a public letter addressed to “his excellency kim jong un.”the letter was sent one day after north korea claimed it had demolished its nuclear test site, something kim jong un had said he would do in anticipation of the summit. but, according to the associated press, no international inspectors were invited to the demolition, raising questions about how serious the move was taken.in the letter, trump made sure to mention that the united states’ nuclear capabilities were far superior to north korea’s.“you talk about your nuclear capabilities, but ours are so massive and powerful that i pray to god they will never have to be used,” he wrote.“the world, and north korea in particular, has lost a great opportunity for lasting peace and great prosperity and wealth. this missed opportunity is a truly sad moment in history,” trump concluded at the end of the letter.the summit had been scheduled for june 12 in singapore, but its fate had been in jeopardy following tough rhetoric from pyongyang. kim kye gwan, north korea’s first vice foreign minister, said in a st...

gwyneth paltrow: brad pitt threatened to kill harvey weinstein
actress gwyneth paltrow recalled the moment brad pitt threatened to kill harvey weinstein after the disgraced producer sexually harassed her in the 1990s.during an interview on howard stern’s sirius xm radio show wednesday, paltrow recounted the incident with weinstein, saying he asked her for a massage while they were in a hotel room.“we had one instance in a hotel room where he made a pass at me,” she said. “it was weird. i was alone in a room with him.”paltrow said she told then-boyfriend brad pitt right away, saying the experience had shaken her especially because she had signed on to make two movies with weinstein. pitt confronted weinstein when the three were at the opening of “hamlet” on broadway, according to paltrow.“it was the equivalent of throwing him against the wall,” she said.pitt then allegedly told weinstein: “if you ever make her feel uncomfortable again, i’ll kill you.”weinstein has now been accused by more than 50 women, including uma thurman, lupita nyong’o, kate beckinsale, salma hayek and cara delevigne, of sexual assault, harassment and other inappropriate behavior. weinstein, whose downfall kicked off the wide spread of the #metoo movement, has denied all allegations of non-consensual sexual contact.asked by stern if she thought pitt overstepped in his protectiveness, paltrow said she thought the encounter was “fantastic.”“he leveraged his fame and power to protect me at a time when i didn’t have fame and power yet,??...

irish expats fly home to vote in abortion referendum
when deirdre ni chloscai wears her black sweater emblazoned with the word ‘repeal’ in bold white letters, her friends in new york are confused. “people always ask me what it means,” she says. “and when i tell them what’s going on back in ireland, they’re shocked. it just seems so outdated to them.”ni chloscai is one of thousands of members of the irish diaspora expected to travel home this week to take part in a historic vote on the predominantly catholic country’s ban on abortion. the outcome of friday’s referendum, announced in september by prime minister leo varadkar, will determine whether or not ireland repeals the constitution’s eighth amendment, which gives an unborn fetus and its mother “an equal right to life.”the referendum has divided ireland into two camps, those voting “yes” to repeal and those voting “no.” varadkar, who supports the yes campaign, says that if the amendment is repealed his government will introduce legislation allowing abortion up to 12 weeks of pregnancy.ireland has long been one of the most socially conservative countries in europe. contraception only became legal in 1980, while divorce was banned until 1995. a referendum to lift the ban that year passed by just 50.2%. some say the 2015 referendum to legalize same-sex marriage, which was won by 62%, shows the country’s social conservatism has waned in recent years. but friday’s vote looks set to be closer.read more: 4 key moments behind ireland’s referend...

south korea’s president moon jae-in has told u.s. president donald trump he expects talks between the two koreas to resume after joint washington–seoul military exercises conclude this week.moon’s comments at the white house wednesday came just hours before north korea’s vice foreign minister threatened the u.s. with the prospect of an “appalling tragedy” and a “nuclear-to-nuclear showdown.”“moon told trump that the inter-korean dialogue, including high-level talks, may resume after friday when the max thunder air exercises will be over,” moon’s chief press secretary said, using a military designation for the air drills, the korea timesreported.pyongyang pulled out of high-level talks with seoul on may 16, blunting the optimism that followed moon and kim’s historic april 27 meeting, in which the latter pledged “a new era of peace” on the peninsula. calling the joint drills a “provocative military ruckus” north korea also said it would “reconsider” kim’s planned june 12 summit with the u.s. if america tried to “force” its “unilateral nuclear abandonment.”tension has ratcheted since, with u.s. national security advisor john bolton suggestion of a “libya model” for north korean disarmament particularly aggravating pyongyang. libyan leader muammar gaddafi was beaten and executed following a nato-backed uprising less than eight years after surrendering his nascent weapons program.“in view of the remarks of the u.s. high-ranking p...

nuclear korea says it demolished nuclear test site
(punggye-ri, north korea) — north korea carried out what it said is the demolition of its nuclear test site thursday, setting off a series of explosions over several hours in the presence of foreign journalists.the explosions at the nuclear test site deep in the mountains of the north’s sparsely populated northeast were centered on three tunnels into the underground site and a number of observation towers in the surrounding area.the planned closing was previously announced by leader kim jong un ahead of his planned summit with u.s. president donald trump next month.the demolition came as the north lobbed another verbal salvo at washington, calling vice president mike pence a “political dummy” and saying it is just as ready to meet in a nuclear confrontation as at the negotiating table.the north’s decision to close the punggye-ri nuclear test site has generally been seen as a welcome gesture by kim to set a positive tone ahead of the summit. even so, it is not an irreversible move and would need to be followed by many more significant measures to meet trump’s demands for real denuclearization.by bringing in the foreign media, mainly television networks, the north is apparently hoping to have images of the closing — including explosions to collapse tunnel entrances — broadcast around the world. the group included an associated press television crew.the north did not invite international inspectors to the ceremony, which limits its value as a serious concession.t...

(milwaukee) — milwaukee police chief alfonso morales has apologized to bucks player sterling brown for a january arrest that started with a parking violation and escalated to include the use of a stun gun, and he said some officers were disciplined.brown, who is african-american, says the incident was “an attempt at police intimidation” and that it “shouldn’t happen to anybody.” meanwhile, community groups in milwaukee are weighing in, too — criticizing police for how they handled brown.morales’ apology on wednesday came as police released body-camera footage that showed how a simple interaction over an illegally parked car quickly escalated. the video represents another setback for a department that for years has tried to rebuild its image and relationship with milwaukee’s black residents after several high-profile cases of police misconduct.police did not identify the races of the officers, but most of the officers in the video appeared to be white.it began around 2 a.m. on jan. 26 in a walgreens parking lot. as brown walks out of the store, an officer standing by brown’s car asks him for his driver’s license. when brown gets close to his car’s passenger door, the officer touches brown and he tells the officer not to touch him.“back up! back up!” the officer yells. “for what? i ain’t did nothing,” brown responds. brown eventually does show the officer his driver’s license.the conversation between the officer and brown is testy as they wai...

saudi arabia: crackdown on women's rights activists widens
saudi arabia has widened its crackdown on women’s rights activists, bringing the number of arrests up to 11 people, according to human rights groups.since the sweep began on may 15, the detained activists, most of whom are women, have been branded “traitors” by pro-government news outlets and social media accounts, according to human rights watch. over the weekend, several state-linked newspapers published the names and photographs of those detained in what rights groups dubbed a “smear campaign“.those arrested reportedly include prominent women’s rights defenders who have long advocated for ending the ban on women driving, among them, loujain al-hathloul, aziza al-yousef and eman al-nafjan, along with mohammed al-rabea, an activist, and ibrahim al-modaimeegh, a human rights lawyer. they may face charges for “suspicious contact with foreign parties” and undermining “stability,” according to the presidency for state security, an office which reports to the king. since the kingdom is expected to soon lift its prohibition on women driving, rights groups said the motivation behind the escalating arrests remains unclear. king salman bin abdulaziz al saud and his son, crown prince mohammed bin salman, drew international plaudits last year when they announced the ban on female drivers would end on june 24.but now international outrage over the arrests threatens to derail the crown prince’s image as liberalizer.“the crown prince, who has styled himself as a re...

(beijing) — german chancellor angela merkel on thursday stressed the importance of dialogue with china during a visit to beijing that comes amid shared concerns over trade with the united states and washington’s rejection of the iran nuclear deal.merkel held morning discussions with chinese premier li keqiang, who said china-germany relations were “developing steadily at a high-level,” but that “the current economic and political situations in the world are complex.”merkel affirmed their past success in finding answers to issues between them and emphasized the need for regular discussions on issues from human rights to science and technology.“and then our conversations can center on really where are there still problems, what are the solutions, what are the opportunities. then we can play our part in a global, multilateral system,” merkel said.merkel was to meet with chinese president xi jinping in the afternoon. on friday, she travels to the technology powerhouse of shenzhen in southern china.in her remarks to li, merkel also mentioned that, “of course china’s relationship with the european union is important to me, and how germany contributes to that.”that could be seen as a reference to concerns among german officials and the business community that china’s close relations with the e.u.’s eastern members were undercutting the bloc’s rules on bidding and transparency. merkel gave no details before reporters were ushered from the meeting room at t...

arrested development: jessica walter on jeffrey tambor row
the cast of arrested development reunited this week for a frank group interview that addressed some difficult topics, including allegations of sexual misconduct against jeffrey tambor and an on-set fight he had years ago with co-star jessica walter.the wide-ranging discussion with the new york times, which included jeffrey tambor, jessica walter, jason bateman, tony hale, alia shawkat, will arnett, and david cross, also touched on how the fifth season of the show confronts president trump’s administration and the challenges of the series’ longevity. portia de rossi and michael cera, the show’s other two stars, did not participate.tensions were laid bare when the interview turned to allegations of sexual and verbal harassment against tambor. the actor, who plays george bluth sr. in the show, was accused of sexual harassment last year by two people on amazon’s transparent. he was fired from transparent in the wake of the claims.tambor recently acknowledged that he could be “mean” and “difficult” on set but denied the transparent allegations in an interview withthe hollywood reporter. he also alluded to a “blowup” with walter, his on-screen wife on arrested development, for which he said he “profusely apologized.”bateman (michael bluth) defended tambor’s behavior as typical of sometimes-strained relations. “in the entertainment industry it is incredibly common to have people who are, in quotes, ‘difficult.'” he said. “it’s a weird thing, and ...

france: macron turns to putin on the iran nuclear deal
(paris) — having failed to persuade u.s. president donald trump to stay in the iran nuclear accord, french president emmanuel macron is reaching out to russian president vladimir putin.macron heads to st. petersburg on thursday amid deep differences with putin over syria, ukraine and alleged russian meddling abroad. but both men want to salvage the iranian nuclear deal.macron’s aides insist he is not cozying up to putin, or seeking to pivot away from france’s longstanding alliance with the u.s. in favor of one with russia and china.rather, they say macron wants to keep a dialogue open to help solve world crises. and france wants russia to use its influence with iran to ensure it respects its nuclear commitments despite trump’s decision.and the iran issue marks the first time that russia, france and germany agree on such a major matter in years.“when points of view coincide, it can only mean that the countries edge at least a bit closer to each other,” putin’s foreign affairs adviser, yuri ushakov, said earlier this month.france and russia can’t save the nuclear accord on their own but are trying to find ways to keep it alive despite the threat of new u.s. sanctions on those doing business with iran.for the kremlin, the e.u. pledge to protect its companies doing business with iran from prospective u.s. sanctions sets an important precedent of the european resistance to the u.s. pressure.macron and putin will also discuss economic ties despite sanctions over rus...

what the karnataka polls mean for india's general elections
a hotly contested state election, seen as a bellwether for india’s national polls next year, has resulted in a politician of a local party allied with the opposition congress being appointed chief minister — but only after a supreme court ruling and a race tainted by allegations of bribery.h.d. kumaraswamy took the top job wednesday in the southern indian state of karnataka. its capital bangalore is a technology hub, home to corporate giants like infosys and walmart’s latest acquisition flipkart.the final tally, with the bjp winning 104 seats and the congress-led alliance picking up 115, will please neither the ruling bjp nor the opposition parties. congress, india’s grand old party, needed a decisive win to show that it can mount a credible fight in 2019.a victory for the bjp would have given it a presence in the south, a region of india that has not been swept away in the party’s saffron wave. it would have also been its first big win in the south under modi — an encouraging development before its seeks another term. for modi personally, a win in karnataka would have been a boost to his standing as he struggles to unite a country polarized by religious and cultural divisions and deals with large-scale unemployment, rising inflation and oil prices and a weakening rupee.here’s how party strategists in the world’s largest democracy will be parsing the results of the karnataka elections.for the congressmany indians see the congress as a crumbling party that has ...

north korea: vice president pence's libya remarks 'ignorant'
(tokyo) — north korea has renewed its threat to pull out of a summit next month with president donald trump, saying it is just as ready to meet in a nuclear confrontation as at the negotiating table.pyongyang’s latest salvo follows recent comments by u.s. vice president mike pence suggesting the north may end up like libya if it doesn’t move forward with denuclearization.choe son hui, the vice minister of foreign affairs, was quoted thursday by the north’s state-run news agency slamming as “ignorant” comments pence made in an interview with fox news that compared north korea to libya, saying they showed he does not understand north korea’s situation.she also questioned whether the summit, scheduled for june 12 in singapore, would be worthwhile if the remarks reflect washington’s position.“we will neither beg the u.s. for dialogue nor take the trouble to persuade them if they do not want to sit together with us,” kcna quoted her as saying. “whether the u.s. will meet us at a meeting room or encounter us at nuclear-to-nuclear showdown is entirely dependent upon the decision and behavior of the united states.”the summit plan has hit a number of speed bumps recently as both sides have begun taking tougher positions and trading barbs. trump met with south korean president moon jae-in on tuesday at the white house for consultations and suggested the summit could be delayed. but the u.s. says it is still working on making it happen.choe, a veteran diplomat an...
