“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg clarified Monday she was not wearing a fat suit in a new movie, forcing The Daily Beast to issue a hilarious correction about Goldberg’s weight. The Daily Beast’s Kyndall Cunningham wrote a review about the upcoming film, “Till,” which details the gruesome murder of 14-year-old Emmett Till in 1955. Goldberg plays Alma Carthan, Till’s grandmother and the mother of Mamie. “Mamie’s journey leading up the trial is structured by conversations between her and her family members – including Whoopi Goldberg as her mother, Alma Carthan, in a distracting fat suit,” the original review read. Goldberg addressed the criticism Monday, saying she was not in fact wearing a fat suit. “There’s a young lady who writes for one of the magazines and she was distracted by my fat suit. In her review, and I’m just gonna say this, I don’t really care how you felt about the movie, but you should know that was not a fat suit. That was me.” WATCH: … [Read more...] about ‘That Was Not A Fat Suit’: Whoopi Goldberg’s Admission Leads To One Of The Funniest Corrections We’ve Ever Read
Another week of hot, humid summer weather (sorry Australia) means more freezing offices where I have to bundle up. Might as well learn a lesson from it in the differences between science , engineering , and leadership . I got my PhD in physics from Columbia. But I teach leadership now. Here's why I moved away from teaching science. Among other things, in school I learned about thermodynamics and how refrigeration works. The first refrigerator was built by a scientist, William Cullen, a Scottish Professor in 1755. According to Wikipedia : This created a small amount of ice, but the process found no commercial application. So scientists understand nature and figure out what's possible. 50 years later, engineers started making the technology practical. 100 years later saw industrial applications in breweries and meat packing. The early 20th century, 150 years later, saw widespread home use. So engineers make science practical. Fast forward … [Read more...] about Why This Ivy-League Physics PhD Teaches Leadership, Not Science
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin It's a little hard to take Kirt McMaster seriously at first. He tends to run on his own schedule, and when he shows up 20 minutes late for a meeting on a recent weekday, there's not so much as a mention of his tardiness, let alone an apology. In black jeans, a black hoodie that looks a half-size too small, brown Birkenstock sandals and a pair of fat black rings--one on his left thumb, one on his right pinkie--the 46-year-old looks more like a techno beach bum than an entrepreneur. He works out of a squat, gray, converted plumbing-supply store in Palo Alto, Calif. that doesn't call attention to the fact that his startup, Cyanogen, is housed inside. The period sign on the façade says "John F. Dahl Plumbing and Heating (since 1895)." The wardrobe and the location are disguises, necessary when one is hatching one of the most daring plots in Silicon Valley history. But McMaster happily blows his cover minutes into our conversation, … [Read more...] about Meet Cyanogen, The Startup That Wants To Steal Android From Google
Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Most people either know Rita Wilson from her acting in films such as Sleepless In Seattle , Mamma Mia , My Big Fat Greek Wedding, It's Complicated and more, or as one half of one of America's favorite celebrity couples for her 34-year marriage to actor Tom Hanks.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin Getty Royalty Free Getty How will the legal industry be affected by the next recession? The thought came to mind several times recently as the stock market recorded its worst December since the Great Depression . Stocks have rebounded during the early weeks of 2019, but political turmoil at home; Brexit and its chaotic implications for the UK, Europe, and beyond; the slowing Chinese economy and the threat of a U.S.-China trade-war; and other destabilizing factors remain. So too does the question of what happens to legal providers when the other shoe drops again. The Impact of 2008 One way to predict the future is to examine the past. How was the legal industry affected by the events of 2008 and its aftermath? Ten years after the collapse of Lehman Brothers and the global financial crisis it precipitated, the contours of today’s legal landscape remain superficially similar to the pre- 2008 marketplace. … [Read more...] about How Will Legal Providers Be Affected By The Next Recession?
