Melania Trump Continues Tradition, Harvesting Michelle Obama’s Vegetable Garden With Children

Melania Trump Continues Tradition, Harvesting Michelle Obama’s Vegetable Garden With Children

. Melania Trump made her first foray into the White House’s vegetable garden Friday, following in the footsteps of its creator and her predecessor, Michelle Obama.
Dressed down in jeans, a plaid shirt and red gardening gloves, the first lady harvested and planted fresh produce alongside a dozen 11- and 12-year-old children. “Thank you for coming and helping me to harvest,” she told the children, who tended to plants including lettuce, radishes, carrots and turnips.
The immaculate White House Kitchen Garden — which can be seen through the gates to the White House South Lawn — was established in 2009 by Michelle Obama as part of her work fighting childhood obesity.
A stone left in the garden says she created it “with the hope of growing a healthier nation for our children.” “Healthy, nurturing and positive environments are instrumental in enhancing the well-being and mindfulness of all children,” Trump said in a statement, suggesting she is keen to continue Obama’s work.
She added the garden is “a prime example of how children can enjoy the outdoors and learn about healthy eating and living.”

Adorable Kids Asked to Design Cars of The Future Demand Rainbow Headlights, Fins, Wings

Adorable Kids Asked to Design Cars of The Future Demand Rainbow Headlights, Fins, Wings

. This is why a design company asked ten children to envision what they thought the cars of the future should look like.
GoCompare says that they first became inspired to do the project after England announced new initiatives in meeting the country’s environmental goals under the Paris Agreement.
“Since Britain announced that the sale of diesel and petrol cars will be banned from 2040, the question of what the cars of the future will be like is highly relevant,” a GoCompare spokesperson told Good News Network.
“The kids were really pleased and excited to see their work brought to life and published online.

California To Become The First State To Ban Sales Of Non-Rescue Animals In Pet Shops

California To Become The First State To Ban Sales Of Non-Rescue Animals In Pet Shops

. More than 200 cities across the U.S. have passed pet store ordinances to take a stand against the sale of cruelly-bred animals, but California is set to become the first state to ban the commercial breeding of cats, dogs and rabbits.
The Pet Rescue and Adoption Act, AB 485, passed the California State Senate with a 32-0 vote on Tuesday and now awaits Governor Jerry Brown’s signature.
The legislation is a high-profile attack against puppy mills. Now, the puppy you see in the pet shop window will be coming from a rescue group or animal shelter.
Any pet stores found guilty of selling commercially bred animals can be fined up to $500 for each violation. “We applaud California lawmakers for rejecting puppy mill cruelty by voting to end the sale of commercially raised dogs in pet stores,” said Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of The Humane Society of the United States, in a press release.

Marilyn Manson: Columbine massacre ‘destroyed’ my career

Marilyn Manson: Columbine massacre ‘destroyed’ my career

. In a new interview with The Guardian, the shock rocker talked about how having his name associated with the 1999 tragedy affected him.
Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold gunned down 12 students and one teacher at their Colorado high school before taking their own lives.
At the time, it was erroneously reported that the shooters were fans of Manson’s music.
The singer now says “If [the Columbine killers] had just bought my records, they would be better off. “That’s going to be a great pull-quote for you,” he told The Guardian. “But, honestly, the Columbine era destroyed my entire career at the time.”

Meghan Markle’s Ex-Husband Making TV Show About Woman Leaving Her Husband For A Prince

Meghan Markle’s Ex-Husband Making TV Show About Woman Leaving Her Husband For A Prince

. Talk about tongue in cheek.
“Divorce is hard. Sharing custody is harder when an ex-wife marries a British prince. Sharing custody with the British Royal family in the unforgiving spotlight of London’s tabloid media is next level.” That’s the premise of Trevor Engelson‘s new comedy that he’s pitching to Fox, our sister publication, Deadline has reported.
The two did not have any children, but she is now, very publicly dating an actual British prince: Prince Harry. There are reports that Meghan, 37, may make her first official appearance with Harry, 33, this weekend at the 2017 Invictus games in Canada, so it is interesting that this news comes out not.
The show will be produced by Trevor, 40, as well as Modern Family’s Danny Zuker, New Girl’s Jake Kasdan and The Shannara Chronicles’s Dan Farah; Deadline reports that apparently a conversation did take place between Trevor and Dan about “what would’ve been if Engelson and Markle had kids and he had to share custody with the British Royal family one day.” So, they thought, why not make it a TV comedy?
“I can tell you that at the end of the day I think it’s really simple,” she told Vanity Fair. We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people’s perception.

Weekend Box Office: ‘Kingsman 2’ Lording Over ‘Ninjago,’ ‘It’ With $40M-Plus Bow

. ‘The Lego Ninjago Movie’ is certainly no slouch, while indie horror pic ‘Friend Request’ isn’t scaring up much business and Darren Aronofsky’s ‘mother!’ is dropping fast.
Director Matthew Vaughn’s Kingsman: The Golden Circle is easily lording over the competition at the North American box office, where the cheeky action-comedy is on course to gross roughly $16 million on Friday for a projected debut of $40 million or more from 4,003 theaters, according to early returns.

Newcomers to the budding franchise include Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Pedro Pascal and Jeff Bridges.
Warner Bros.’ The Lego Ninjago Movie, the first animated family film of fall, is projected to take in a hearty $9 million to $10 million on Friday from 4,047 locations for a debut of $31 million to $34 million, good enough for a second-place finish.

On ‘Star Trek: Discovery,’ a Franchise Boldly Goes Into the Serial TV Era

On ‘Star Trek: Discovery,’ a Franchise Boldly Goes Into the Serial TV Era

. These are among the challenges that will be taken on by a new series, “Star Trek: Discovery,” whose first episode will be shown Sunday, Sept. 24, on CBS.
Its central story line plays out over a 15-episode season, and its characters can be morally ambiguous and untrustworthy to viewers as well as to one another.
“The only reason to do a new ‘Trek’ television show is if you have something really new to say,” Mr. Kurtzman said.
Mr. Harberts and Ms. Berg were named the new showrunners, a decision they said was necessary to preserve Mr. Fuller’s fundamental vision of the show.
Recalling an update she received from the “Star Trek” staff, Ms. Martin-Green said, “They told me, ‘It’s you.

‘Full House’ Cast Is Still A Family, 30 Years And A Revival Later

‘Full House’ Cast Is Still A Family, 30 Years And A Revival Later

. Time and time again, we hear casts of TV and film describe themselves as family.
And yet when the cast of “Fuller House” says they’re family, we know they really mean it.
“To be able to do this 30 years later and have ‘Fuller House’ be such a success and do it with people we love.
Fan service alone cannot sustain a series for more than a season, so “Fuller House” has taken a cue from its Netflix brothers and sisters and committed to more serialized storytelling, setting it apart from the original series. Whereas “Full House” centered around Danny, Joey and Jesse, the revival showcases the female-perspective on stories of love, family and raising kids, which cast members Candice Cameron Bure, Jodi Sweetin and Andrea Barber agreed was “refreshing.” The third season picks up where the finale left off, after D.J.
“When you do 192 episodes of any show, you’re together with the people you work with a lot more than your own family …
Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, who both played the third Tanner daughter, Michelle, have famously abstained from appearing on the revival series.
When we started ‘Fuller House,’ it wasn’t like we all saw each other for the first time after 20 years,” Bure said.

. “It’s been 11 years since I released an album so I felt like it was time to show all the parts — intimate, fun, laughing, crying,” Fergie recently told PEOPLE at a VIP screening of her visual album in New York.
“It’s crazy how you experience the same feelings but in completely different periods of your life,” she said. “I was compiling that, and I love to make a big splash — I’m a sucker for a dramatic moment.
Though she has previously said the ballad was inspired by several relationships, it takes on a different meaning now after her recent split from husband Josh Duhamel after eight years of marriage.
We had planned to just film it whether he wanted to come or not — I just missed my son and wanted him to come to set!” Fergie said. If he’s crying and he doesn’t want to do it, then we wont do it!’ But he was completely into it, we just made it like a play date.

End-of-world prediction interrupts TV broadcasts

End-of-world prediction interrupts TV broadcasts

. Television programming for some California viewers was interrupted for about a minute Thursday with a disturbing message warning of the end of the world.
“Realize this, extremely violent times will come,” a voice in the alert said, according to the Orange County Register.
The alert interrupted Cox and Spectrum broadcast customers in Orange County around 11:05 a.m.
Broadcast stations then picked up the audio feed that sent the alert.
“We don’t want to alarm anyone with any false emergency alerts,” Camero said.
Both providers are investigating the cause of the alert and whether it was done intentionally.
It is not known if the alert has anything to do with the end of the world prophecy by David Meade, a numerologist, who claims catastrophic events will occur Saturday, according to the Washington Post.

Emma Stone became ‘addicted to strength’ filming ‘Battle of the Sexes’

. (CNN)For Emma Stone, living up to the legacy of the indomitable Billie Jean King in “Battle of the Sexes,” about the infamous tennis match of the same name, was a big task to take on. “It was the first time that I focused so, so much on the physicality of someone,” Stone told CNN. “Playing an athlete, that is how she was able to make change in the world…that was her avenue to this voice that she had.
Stone said the role called for her to get and look “stronger” — something she found empowering.
And I understand how mentally, that can make you feel so strong,” she said. “It can make you feel like, ‘If I can throw this thing across the room, what else can I do?’ “It was actually very cool. This is awesome.'”
It’s pretty scary to see.”

How to Download Files with Your Synology NAS (and Avoid Leaving Your Computer On at Night)

Let’s look at how to start and schedule those downloads now.
Why use your NAS to download files?
Click “OK” to jump directly to the destination selection menu.
In the “Destination” box, you can either select an existing folder or create a brand new folder.
With our download folder set, we can now add some files to download.
The “+” symbol is for adding downloads to the manager via file (e.g. you have a .torrent file on hand) where as the globe button is for URL-formatted destinations (e.g. you have the http:// or ftp:// address of the file).
As an aside, there is no file-by-file override function for the scheduling (you can’t right click on a paused file and force it to start outside of the active hours) so if you need to rush a file then you will have to hop back into the menu and turn the scheduling off for the duration of that file download.

Award for his humanitarian work and an avid fundraiser for causes from homelessness to Parkinson’s disease, and Amnesty International to child solders overseas, Cage seems to have a special empathy for those caught in the wake of hurricanes, having donated a million dollars following the destruction from Katrina.
He arrived in Mobile to talk to a small crowd of Coast Guard service members and their families who have been involved with rescue efforts after Hurricane Harvey in Texas, and Irma in the Southeast.
“Through the many search and rescue missions and clearing the way so citizens can evacuate, we see the compassion that our military has for its people,” he began.

US Music Industry Soars as Streaming Hits 30 Million and CD Sales Rebound

US Music Industry Soars as Streaming Hits 30 Million and CD Sales Rebound

. The US music industry on Wednesday reported soaring growth in the first half of the year as streaming subscriptions reached 30 million and long-sagging CD sales leveled out.
The boom in streaming — which allows unlimited, on-demand listening online — has revived the music business in recent years but the latest figures were especially strong.
Sales in the world’s largest music market rose 14.6 percent to $2.7 billion in the first six months, well outpacing the 8.1 percent growth a year earlier, the Recording Industry Association of America said.
Streaming revenue grew by nearly half and now accounts for 62 percent of the market. The growth is led by paid services such as Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal, with subscriptions shooting past 30 million.
In another bright point, physical sales declined a marginal one percent — not the major drops of previous years — as CDs slipped only slightly and vinyl kept up its rebirth.
The biggest drop in sales was in downloads on iTunes and other services as fans instead turn to streaming.
Despite the strong growth, the association said that sales were still below levels from before the advent of the internet — which devastated the music industry as fans flocked online.

How to Set Your Preferred Autofill Manager in Android Oreo

. One of the best new features in Android Oreo is the system-wide autofill service.

From there, scroll down and tap the “System” entry, and then tap “Languages & Input” on the “System” page.
There are only a few options on the “Languages & Input” page, so you’ll need to tap the “Advanced” option to expose the rest.

For right now, just know that if you’re a LastPass user, many apps will still just use the LastPass Fill Service instead of the new Autofill Service.

Fishing Buddies Use Dead Friend’s Ashes As Bait And Catch The Biggest Carp In The World

Fishing Buddies Use Dead Friend’s Ashes As Bait And Catch The Biggest Carp In The World

. In 2015, a group of fishing buddies, Ron, Cliff and Paul, decided to go fishing in Thailand at a place called Jurassic Mountain Resort with the same intentions — catching the biggest carp in the lake, which at the time was a 154lb Siamese Carp.
Before he passed away the three friends discussed their next fishing trip in Thailand.
Facing the harsh reality that was to be Ron wouldn’t be there to join them this time around, Paul and Cliff agreed to scatter some of Ron’s ashes into the lake at Jurassic Mountain.
It was agreed between the three that Cliff and Paul would use some of Ron’s ashes to make boilies and then use those to catch fish in Ron’s physical absence.
The two managed to catch plenty of fish using their signature “Purple Ronnies” but the two had a very specific goal in their minds while fishing: to recapture the lake record Carp for a truly poetic ending to their saga.
On their fifth day of fishing, Cliff experienced one of the most epic and enduring battles of his life. Paul came running around from the other side of the lake to see what all the commotion was about and what ensued was over two hours of man vs beast as the two friends took turns in fighting the fish.
Finally they managed to get the fish into the net and to their complete shock it wasn’t the same 154lb fish that Ron caught previously, it was another fish, the monstrous 180lb+ carp that had remained uncaught until that moment.
After a few trophy pictures with the new lake record fish, the two safely released the fish (now named Ronnie) back to fight another day.

Rob Reiner Spars With Tucker Carlson Over Russia, Hollywood’s Relationship With China

Rob Reiner Spars With Tucker Carlson Over Russia, Hollywood’s Relationship With China

. The veteran director was doing the media rounds to support the newly launched committee to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
Rob Reiner got into a semantic slanging match with Tucker Carlson on his Fox News show on Thursday with the two having a testy argument on what constituted “war” and Hollywood’s relationship with China.
Reiner made a surprise appearance on Carlson’s show, drumming up awareness for the newly launched committee to investigate Russian meddling in the 2016 election. The committee launched a video this week fronted by Morgan Freeman that claimed the U.S. was at “war” with Russia following the events of 2016, but focused on cyber warfare rather than war in the conventional sense.
“If you watch the entire video, it talks about cyber warfare,” Reiner said.
Carlson suggested Hollywood had no interest in Chinese hacking as there was money to be made and suggested the studios kowtowed to China’s strict censorship laws.
Carlson continued to press Reiner on the China question and the director tried to push back but his frustration was palpable.

Jimmy Kimmel’s Failed Test

Jimmy Kimmel’s Failed Test

. Kimmel has set himself up as the conscience of the current debate over the last effort at reforming health insurance, and Washington now talks of the “Jimmy Kimmel test,” which demands that insurance companies be obliged to cover preexisting conditions without exception or penalty.
We wish the very best to Jimmy Kimmel and his young son, Billy, but holding up cute babies is a dumb way to approach complex policy questions.
The basic architecture of the Affordable Care Act mandates that insurance companies essentially ignore preexisting conditions when writing new policies, obliging them to insure against events that already have happened — essentially requiring them to bet big on the Falcons in Super Bowl LI. It creates a perverse incentive: If there is no cost for the coverage of preexisting conditions, then people have no incentive to buy insurance at all until they are sick and need the benefits.
Experimenting with different approaches to preexisting conditions would in fact be desirable; there is no reason to suppose that the best solution for New Jersey is also the best solution for Oklahoma, and the only thing that is entirely clear about the preexisting-conditions approach put forward in the ACA is that it is not working.
Before the ACA, there were a great many Billy Kimmels whose parents had health insurance they could afford and that worked for them. And there is no health-care system — not the ACA regime, not the Graham-Cassidy reforms, not a British-style government-monopoly system — that would in fact ensure that every child in Billy Kimmel’s situation would receive everything he might need and his parents might desire at a price they can afford.
In the U.S. context, that means a number of parallel systems (individual insurance, employer-based plans, Medicare, Medicaid with many state-level variations, the VA system, etc.) That is not going to be sorted out by a late-night comedian or two and sympathetic appeals about sick children.

Kim Kardashian Stole Her Trademark Catchphrase From An Ex-Boyfriend

Kim Kardashian Stole Her Trademark Catchphrase From An Ex-Boyfriend

. After 10 years of being on the air, the Kardashian clan has become synonymous with pop culture in the 2010s. Keeping Up With The Kardashians has gifted us a style of makeup, a way for us to dress, and even a Kardashian brand of slang that we hear everywhere.
It’s a way that the family members declare that what they’re saying is wholly true; a sort of Kardashian version of “swearing to God” or “swearing on the bible.” The whole family uses the term, but it’s definitely become part of Kim’s vibe over the years. “Kim and I dated brothers in high school,” Kourtney interjects, “—and they started it in their family,” said Kim.
What about their other catchphrases? “Okurrrr,” which is properly pronounced by rolling the Rs, is a much sassier “okay!”. The Kardashian clan doesn’t get into the origin story of that one, but the show plays a supercut of the sisters saying it all at the same time, which is every bit as entertaining as you can imagine.

. The star of Riverdale was involved in a late-night car crash last week after a grueling 16-hour work day outside Vancouver, prompting the cast and crew of the hit CW show to demand better safety protections during production.

Harris’ death is still being investigated.
According to a statement Thursday from Warner Bros., the studio refutes any claim that Apa worked a 16-hour work day and that it could have caused his accident.
On the day of the accident, KJ worked 14.2 hours. The previous day he worked 2.5 hours, and the day before that he worked 7.7 hours.
Riverdale became a breakout hit for The CW last season. “The safety of the cast and crew on all of our productions is of paramount importance to the Studio,” WBTV said in a statement.
