Maybe it was in January, when Mandy Moore, hours before the Golden Globes, told Coveteur that she was experimenting with CBD oil to relieve the pain from wearing high heels. “It could be a really exciting evening,” she said. “I could be floating this year.” Maybe it was in July, when Willie Nelson introduced a line of CBD-infused coffee beans called Willie’s Remedy. “It’s two of my favorites, together in … [Read more...] about Why Is CBD Everywhere?

Julie Hinds Detroit Free Press Published 10:00 p.m. UTC Aug 10, 2018 To play the lead role in "BlacKkKlansman," John David Washington immersed himself in the history and culture of the 1960s and 1970s. Times were turbulent then, much as they are now, a parallel that stayed with the 34-year-old actor. "I asked my mom about it," he says, sitting in a room set up for press interviews in Detroit's Westin Book Cadillac. "I asked her, 'Do you think it's scarier then or now?' ...She said now. She says it's scarier now, which then frightened me." That's the power of "BlacKkKlansman," a movie being hailed as one of director Spike Lee's best works in years. By telling the riveting story of an undercover black cop who infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan in the '70s, it reveals that yesterday's hatreds are still alive and inflicting damage on America today. The New York Times praised the film as "an alarm clock ringing in the midst of a … [Read more...] about New star emerges from ‘BlacKkKlansman’ (and yes, Denzel is his father)

This is the new Rolls-Royce Cullinan and it is unquestionably the most luxurious 4x4 to hit the market – at least until Aston Martin gets in on the act. The iconic British marque says its first purpose-built sports utility vehicle is inspired by Lawrence of Arabia's military-readied Roller - although it has undoubtedly been designed with the super-rich in mind - as it curtsies to let you in and deploys leather-bound picnic chairs so you can enjoy equestrian events without ever leaving the vehicle. Bosses at BMW-owned Rolls-Royce claim the new £250,000 SUV is ‘the ultimate rough diamond’ – taking its name from the legendary 3,106 carat Cullinan gem, unearthed in 1905 in South Africa that was the largest and most flawless ever found and elements of which are in the Crown Jewels. However, Rolls-Royce will face competition in three years' time, as fellow British brand Aston Martin has confirmed it will also make its first SUV in 2021 - and that will only come … [Read more...] about Rolls-Royce unveils the Cullinan SUV
