Is a Proxy Fight Next for Randa?

AT WHAT COST:  Perry Ellis International’s Special Committee on Wednesday reiterated its intention to proceed with George Feldenkreis’ $ 437 million offer to take the company private, a transaction that was inked on June 16. That dashed the wishes of Randa Accessories, which had hoped for a second, third and fourth chance to at least engage in talks over its nonbinding $ 444 million offer.
Randa has maintained that it intends to continue pursuing a purchase of Perry Ellis, but it doesn’t have many options left. According to the Special Committee on Wednesday, regulatory authorities already granted early termination of the 30-day waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, clearing the way for the filing of the preliminary proxy last week. All that’s left is determining the date for the special shareholders’ meeting so investors can vote yay or nay on the planned deal.
Randa could elect to do a proxy fight, but at what cost? A banker not connected to the Perry Ellis-Randa battle — he’s requested anonymity because of his work with corporate clients in connection with proxy fights from activist investors — said, “A proxy fight is very expensive, and I’m not sure what it achieves here.

Balenciaga Apologizes to Chinese Customers for Fight at Printemps

BEIJING — A four-second video clip of a violent scuffle involving several Balenciaga customers at Printemps in Paris has prompted an apology from the brand, after it fielded accusations that it discriminated against Chinese shoppers.
According to the user who uploaded the video, the fight broke out when French shoppers attempted to enter, bypassing a line of Chinese customers waiting for their turn.
“Boycott Balenciaga discriminating against Chinese. Really angry, queuing up and yet get hit by the people cutting in line. From now on, buy Chinese Li Ning [the sportswear brand],” the video caption read, adding that Balenciaga would not be able to sell its shoes if Chinese consumers stopped buying them. Since posting, it has been viewed over 820,000 times.
The brand apologized in a statement on Thursday saying, “The house of Balenciaga regrets the incident that took place yesterday morning at a department store in Paris while customers were waiting to enter its corner shop. The security staff acted immediately to restore the calm. Balenciaga sincerely apologizes to the customers who were present and reaffirms its strong commitment to respect equally all its customers.”
The poster of the video wrote that every day she lined up to buy Balenciaga sneakers, and on a daily

Abercrombie & Fitch Adopts New Policy for Sourcing Wood-Based Fabrics to Fight Deforestation

In collaboration with the Rainforest Action Network, Abercrombie & Fitch Co. has unveiled a new policy for the sourcing and use of wood-based fabrics, including rayon, viscose and Modal in its clothes.
Going forward, Abercrombie & Fitch has committed to tracing the sources of all wood-based fabrics used in its own clothing lines and to eliminate by the middle of next year any sources that are affiliated with the destruction of endangered forests and associated with the violations of human rights. The policy applies to its namesake brand, as well as its abercrombie kids and Hollister labels.
By making this pledge, A&F joins a roster of apparel companies trying to address deforestation and human rights abuses in their respective supply chains. The company, along with Ralph Lauren and Victoria’s Secret (L Brands) are among the few major U.S.-based companies publicly acknowledging these issues.
A&F’s policy and initiative is in line with the Rainforest Action Network. The group’s “Out of Fashion” campaign has been calling attention to the risks that controversial wood-based fabrics pose to endangered forests and human rights in Indonesia and elsewhere.

‘Star Wars’ Superfans Fight The Force In Epic First Wedding Dance

Star Wars” superfans Jessica and Allen Bricker shunned a traditional first dance at their wedding to treat guests to a surprise light saber battle instead.

Videos going viral show the couple, from Hoagland, Indiana, unleashing their inner Jedi in front of stunned family and friends.

They ended the choreographed routine with a kiss.

Allen Bricker, 32, said he and his new wife Jessica, 26, had initially planned to get married on May 4, otherwise known as “Star Wars Day.”

But Jessica’s mother wasn’t having a Thursday wedding, so May 6 was the best we could do,” he told Mashable.

Hence their decision to reference the space opera franchise on their big day.

John Oliver Rallies ‘Time-Wasters And Troublemakers’ To Fight The FCC

John Oliver is calling on everyone who’s ever wasted time on the Internet ― even trolls ― to unite for a common cause: net neutrality.

On Sunday, the host of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight” explained the issue and shared how important it was for everyone who uses the Internet.

Since the Trump administration hasn’t made it easy to comment on the topic, Oliver bought the website GoFCCYourself.com, which redirects to the correct page at the FCC. He then urged everyone to devote a small amount of effort to the issue.  

“Yes, I’m talking to you, everyone who posted ‘May the 4th be with you’ for Star Wars Day this and and every fucking year. And I’m talking to you, everyone who posted on Facebook about 10 concerts you’ve seen and one you didn’t. And to you, everyone who did it ironically and added a clever joke twist because ― and this is important ― you are exactly as bad.” 

Oliver has taken on net neutrality before; that time he crashed the FCC’s servers

The Oliver Effect may be happening again. While the FCC’s main page remained online, the page he directed traffic to went down early Monday. The effort also caused #GoFCCYourself to trend on Twitter.

Your Fave Comedians Are Helping To Raise Money To Fight Trump’s Policies

“I’m going to venture a guess: For the past two months, the news out of Washington has left you scowling — and maybe even growling — more than laughing,” Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) president Rhea Suh recently wrote to supporters of the environment-focused non-profit she heads. “Well, we have something that might help.” 

Suh just announced the lineup of comedians who will be featured at the group’s April 25 event, “Stand Up! for the Planet: An Evening of Comedy Benefiting NRDC’s Litigation Fund.” This night of comedy will take place in Los Angeles and raise money for legal battles against Donald Trump’s administration concerning his climate change agenda (or lack thereof).

The comedians announced so far are Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Larry David, Martin Short, Tig Notaro, Jerrod Carmichael, JB Smoove, Tony Hale and Pete Davidson. 

“I am honored to be a part of such an amazing cause, especially during this critical time for NRDC,” Louis-Dreyfus told the Los Angeles Times. “Now more than ever, it’s important for us to join together and push back against the threats the new administration already poses to decades of environmental progress.”

Comedian Larry David memorably shouted “Trump’s a racist!” during the then-presidential candidate’s opening monologue at “Saturday Night Live” in 2015. He also told The New York Times before the election that thinking about Trump winning the presidency was “like contemplating your own death.”

But as Trump’s presidency is now a reality, the fate of the world may actually need saving by unlikely supergroups such as the NRDC, teamed with a few of Earth’s best comedians. David would certainly be an intriguing Captain Planet.

Justin Trudeau Challenges Matthew Perry To A Rematch Of Elementary School Fight

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau playfully challenged actor Matthew Perry to a fight over Twitter on Saturday, just weeks after Perry let the world know that he once beat Trudeau up at their elementary school in Canada.

During an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” last month, Perry told the story, as extremely unlikely as it might seem. 

“My friend Chris Murray, who was also in the fifth grade in Canada, reminded me that we actually beat up Justin Trudeau,” he said. “We both beat him up. I think he was excelling in a sport that we weren’t so it was pure jealousy.”

“I think he was the only kid in school that we could beat up,” he added. “You know, I’m not bragging about this, this is terrible. I was a stupid kid, I didn’t want to beat him up. In fact, I think at one point I tried to turn it into love play.”

Even though Perry expressed remorse, that wasn’t good enough for Trudeau, who in his challenge on Saturday ― which was April Fools’ Day ― correctly noted that Chandler, Perry’s character on “Friends,” has a very punchable face. 

Guys, just one request: If this goes down, just make sure it’s streamable ― not some of that pay-per-view bull crap.

Did a Divorce Fight Over Children Lead to Florida Professor’s Execution-Style Slaying?

In the aftermath of a 2012 divorce filing that blindsided him, Florida State University law professor Dan Markel tried to stay amicable with his ex-wife, fellow law professor Wendi Adelson, and focus on their two young sons, his friends say.

“He was annoyed that her family was meddling — he thought — in the divorce,” colleague and law professor Fernando Tesón tells PEOPLE. “But I never sensed he was fearful.”

It turns out he may have had reason to be.

His ongoing conflicts with Adelson over child custody abruptly ended on July 18, 2014, when police answered a 911 call just after 11 a.m. to find him shot point-blank in the head.

Markel was found dead still sitting in his Honda Accord in the garage of his home in suburban Tallahassee, Florida, hours after dropping off his kids at day care.

Police said he was targeted. He died the following day.

• For more on Dan Markel’s mysterious execution-style slaying, subscribe now to PEOPLE or pick up this week’s issue, on newsstands Friday.

Questioned on the day Markel was fatally shot, Adelson “said someone may have done this for her benefit without her knowledge,” Tallahassee police detective Craig Isom testified at a court hearing in December.

“She made the statement that her brother had joked the previous summer about hiring a hit man, but instead decided to buy her a television,” Isom said.

Police pursued that theory — and, in a probable cause affidavit, eventually alleged the motive for Markel’s killing “stemmed from the desperate desire of the Adelson family to relocate Wendi and the children to South Florida.”

Prosecutors have charged three people in what they portray as Markel’s murder-for-hire. Sigfredo Garcia, 34, has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder. Luis Rivera, 33, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and is cooperating with police.

Those men, arrested in the spring of 2016, led police to a third person, 32-year-old Katherine Magbanua, who was arrested in October. Magbanua has two children with Garcia and allegedly had a romantic relationship with Charlie.

Police claim she was the one who connected Charlie to the hit men. She has pleaded not guilty to a charge of first-degree murder.

None of the Adelsons have been charged in Markel’s death, and attorneys for Wendi, Charlie and parents Donna and Harvey dismissed any hint of their involvement.

As the investigation continues, Markel’s friends are waiting to see where the case’s questions and answers may lead.

“I just want to have them confirmed,” law professor Douglas A. Berman tells PEOPLE, “so I can feel some comfort.”

The Supreme Court may have dismissed his court case — as well as the lower court’s previous ruling in his favor — but Gavin Grimm hasn’t given up on the struggle for greater rights for transgender students.

The transgender teen explained why this is just one setback in his crusade for students to use the bathroom that corresponds to their gender identity, a battle he never expected to lead.

“This fight is bigger than me,” Grimm, 17, writes in an op-ed for the New York Times. “I came to realize that very early on, and it is truer now than it ever has been.”

“This fight is for other trans youth in my high school. It is for other trans youth in Virginia. It is for all trans youth who are in school or one day will be. It is for the friends and loved ones of these youth, who want these children to be happy and healthy, rather than at risk and in danger as so many trans people are.”

Now the face of the movement, Grimm initially was just a high school sophomore in Gloucester, Virginia, who was suddenly barred from using the men’s bathroom.

“The school board held a meeting — a public conversation about my genitals and restroom usage — without notifying me first,” Grimm, now a senior, recalls. “My mother and I found out by chance less than 24 hours before the meeting was to happen. An old friend of my mother’s had noticed a post going around Facebook, a rallying cry by adults in my community urging people to show up to the meeting in order to ‘keep that girl out of the boy’s room.’ ”

At that meeting, “people speaking out against me made a point of referring to me with female honorifics and pronouns,” he says. “They warned me that I was going to be raped or otherwise abused. They suggested that boys would sneak into the girls’ room and harm their children.”

Grimm, with the help of the ACLU, eventually sued the school district and won the right to use the boys’ bathroom at Gloucester High School with Virginia’s Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals. But he never had a chance, after the Supreme Court put a stay on the ruling until they could hear arguments on the case — and now the Justices have dismissed the case and cleared the previous ruling.

“Regardless of what obstacles come before me, regardless of what hatred or ignorance or discrimination I face, I will be fine, because I have love on my side,” Grimm writes.

David Beckham and UNICEF Fight Back Over Alleged Hacked Emails: ‘Let the Facts Speak for Themselves’

David Beckham is responding to reports he allegedly used his UNICEF charity work to campaign for a knighthood.

“This story is based on outdated material taken out of context from hacked and doctored private emails from a third party server and gives a deliberately inaccurate picture,” a spokesperson for Beckham tells PEOPLE in a statement. 

“David and UNICEF have had a powerful partnership in support of children for over 15 years. The David Beckham 7 Fund specifically has raised millions of pounds and helped millions of vulnerable children around the world,” the statement continued.

Beckham has been a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador since 2005.

On Friday, British newspaper The Sun published reportedly leaked emails between Beckham and his publicist from 2013 where they discussed the soccer star working on securing a knighthood in 2013. (Beckham was awarded an OBE, or Order of the British Empire, in 2003.) After Beckham allegedly complained that British singer Katherine Jenkins was awarded an OBE and calling it “a f—— joke,” Beckham’s rep urged him to focus his energy on his charitable efforts.

Beckham also allegedly railed against the committee who decides who get the honors, calling them “a bunch of c—-” and saying he “expected nothing less.”

“It’s a disgrace to be honest and if I was American I would of got something like this ten years ago,” Beckham allegedly said.

In February 2015, Beckham launched the 7 Fund to raise funds and awareness for vulnerable children by focusing on seven different countries and seven different initiatives.

“David has given significant time and energy and has made personal financial donations to the 7 Fund and this commitment will continue long term,” the statement added. “Before establishing the 7 Fund, David had supported UNICEF and a number of other charities over many years, including donating his entire earnings from PSG during his time playing there.”

Concluding, “David and UNICEF are rightly proud of what they have and will continue to achieve together and are happy to let the facts speak for themselves.”

On Friday, UNICEF released a statement, defending their partnership with Beckham.

“Some reports relate to alleged private correspondence between our ambassador and other parties, which we have not seen and cannot comment upon,” the statement read. “David Beckham has been a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador since 2005, and as well as generously giving his time, energy and support to help raise awareness and funds for UNICEF’s work for children, David has given significant funds personally.”

The organization also noted Beckham’s last UNICEF trip in June 2016 when he traveled to Africa to visit children living with HIV, who are receiving support from his charity 7 and UNICEF.

In addition to his reported complaints about not getting a knighthood, the alleged emails also included Beckham’s supposed reluctance to donate his own money to charity and his rep urging the soccer star not to post a photo of his gold-plated laptop on social media so as not to ruin his “man of the people” reputation.

Hippies, Indians, and the Fight for Red Power

Hippies, Indians, and the Fight for Red Power


Through much of the 20th century, federal policy toward Indians sought to extinguish all remnants of native life and culture. That policy was dramatically confronted in the late 1960s when a loose coalition of hippies, civil rights advocates, Black Panthers, unions, Mexican-Americans, Quakers and other Christians, celebrities, and others joined with Red Power activists to fight for Indian rights. In Hippies, Indians and the Fight for Red Power, Sherry Smith offers the first full account of this remarkable story. Hippies were among the first non-Indians of the post-World War II generation to seek contact with Native Americans. The counterculture saw Indians as genuine holdouts against conformity, inherently spiritual, ecological, tribal, communal-the original “long hairs.” Searching for authenticity while trying to achieve social and political justice for minorities, progressives of various stripes and colors were soon drawn to the Indian cause. Black Panthers took part in Pacific Northwest fish-ins. Corky Gonzales’ Mexican American Crusade for Justice provided supplies and support for the Wounded Knee occupation. Actor Marlon Brando and comedian Dick Gregory spoke about the problems Native Americans faced. For their part, Indians understood they could not achieve political change without help. Non-Indians had to be educated and enlisted. Smith shows how Indians found, among this hodge-podge of dissatisfied Americans, willing recruits to their campaign for recognition of treaty rights; realization of tribal power, sovereignty, and self-determination; and protection of reservations as cultural homelands. The coalition was ephemeral but significant, leading to political reforms that strengthened Indian sovereignty. Thoroughly researched and vividly written, this book not only illuminates this transformative historical moment but contributes greatly to our understanding of social movements.

Why Planes Crash: An Accident Investigator’s Fight for Safe Skies (Unabridged)

Why Planes Crash: An Accident Investigator’s Fight for Safe Skies (Unabridged)

Boarding an airplane strikes at least a small sense of fear into most people. Even though we all have heard that the odds of being struck by lightning are greater than the odds of perishing in a plane crash, it still doesn’t feel that way. Airplane crashes might be rare, but they do happen, and they’re usually fatal. David Soucie insists that most of these deaths could be prevented. He’s worked as a pilot, a mechanic, an FAA inspector, and an aviation executive. He’s seen death up close and personal – deaths of colleagues and friends that might have been prevented if he had approved certain safety measures in the aircrafts they were handling. His years of experience have led Dave to become an impassioned consultant on the topic of airline safety. This includes not only advising the Obama administration, but also taking a leading role in the congressionally funded NextGen interdepartmental initiative in regards to both the department of transportation and the departments of defense, homeland security, FBI, CIA, and others. Find out the truth about airplane safety and discover what the future holds for air travel.

Why Couples Fight: The Top 5 Issues

I love to talk about love — even some of the darker parts of coupledom like arguments, fights and problems. After all, without the dark we wouldn’t have the light!

Most of us don’t realize that there are patterns to how we fight…and make-up if we so choose to work at it. Ask yourself:

Are you having the same fight over and over again?

Your arguments might be more common than you think. Can you relate to this awesome video?

The Science of Fighting

According to Marriage and Family counselor Dr. John Gottman, a true expert in this field, 69 percent of marriage conflicts are never solved. Yes, 69 percent!

That means that we are often having the same fight over and over again.

This is actually good news. Why? If we have similarities or patterns to our fights it means a) we are not alone and b) we can study, predict and course-correct our arguments before they explode.

Dr. John Gottman has over 40 years of research with over 3,000 married couples. He calls these unresolved issues ‘gridlocked’. Watch this video for more:

Gridlocked Issue: A common topic that comes up for a couple that cannot be resolved and typically devolves into a nasty argument.

The Top 5 Issues Couples Fight About:

What do most couples fight about? Here are the 5 most common issues:

  • Free Time

  • Money

  • Housework

  • Physical Intimacy

  • Extended Family

Fighting Solutions:

Here are some ways you can use the science of couples to help your relationship:

1. The New Mindset

How to Fight Better: I want us to shift the focus to fighting ‘better’ as opposed to fighting less. Why? Fighting better is about having discussions, not arguments. It is about respectfully hearing the other person when perpetual problems come up. It’s also a lot of pressure to try to fight less. We all want to fight less, but the point of this article is to deepen understanding and that can mean discussing more.

2. Identify Your Issues

One of the most interesting discussions I have ever had with my husband was identifying our ‘perpetual issues’. We sat down and thought about the problems and topics that have come up recently and looked for patterns. Did any of them fall into the top 5 above? Were there any common threads or underlying themes to our arguments. The answer — yes. We didn’t realize it at first, but we were basically having the same 3 arguments over and over again with different dressing.

  • Sit down with your partner (or with a journal by yourself) and review all of the arguments you have had recently or any big blow-up fights over the last few months. Try to identify the patterns under the arguments.

  • Once you have identified your patterns, clearly delineate each partner’s side of the argument. Do this in non-judgmental terms. For example, an issue could be ‘spending.’ Husband likes to treat himself to little dinners out regularly, whereas Wife likes to save up for big treats. Neither is ‘wrong’ but this way you know where you both stand.

3. Localize Don’t Globalize

One reason that little arguments can erupt so quickly is because a small disagreement can be tagged onto one of your larger arguments and immediately explode into the big fight. You already know your issues and where the other stands, so it is very important to keep small arguments compartmentalized and specific to the situation. This can help you focus on the issue and keep the discussion as just that — a discussion. Since you know you have fundamental differences on the larger argument, there is no reason to bring it into everyday discussions.

  • Try to avoid globalizing the other person or their behavior. Try not to say “You always do this” or “This is your pattern” or “You never…”

  • Don’t call up past arguments or offenses. I know it’s hard, but it will only exacerbate an issue that is gridlocked (devolving into a larger fight).

And by the way, you aren’t the only couple who fights about your issues:

4. Start with Agreement

If a gridlocked issue comes up on a daily basis and you need to approach it, start with agreement. Dr. Gottman noticed that successful couples who have been together for a long time master gentleness. They present issues in a soft way by never starting with criticism. In fact, starting with agreement is the best way to avoid an argument and start a discussion. Find something you can agree upon and start there.

  • For example, if you have family coming in for the weekend and Wife wants a hotel, but Husband wants house-guests, Wife could say, “I know we can agree that family time is important and I know we can both get a little annoyed when we are overrun with nieces and nephews. Let’s try to think of a way to make this weekend work.”

5. Look Underneath the Argument

This is the hardest one, but the most important. Sometimes there are underlying issues beneath the gridlocked issue. I want you to think about what’s happening behind the argument. Are there value-based differences? You might actually be arguing about basic philosophical concepts like someone’s sense of self, power, freedom, care, what family means, what home means or control. Look at your gridlocked issue and ask the question “Why?” 5 times. *Be sure to get buy-in to do this from both people, so it is exploratory not antagonistic. For example:

  • Wife: I am very upset right now.

  • Man: Why?

  • Wife: I need more help around the house.

  • Man: Why do you feel that way?

  • Wife: I feel overworked and overwhelmed with the stuff that needs to be done.

  • Man: Why do you feel overwhelmed?

  • Wife: It just feels like it all lands on me at the end of the day.

  • Man: Why do you feel it all lands on you?

  • Wife: I don’t see you offering to help and that makes me frustrated.

  • Man: Why does that happen?

  • Wife: It makes me feel under-appreciated.

Ok, now they are onto something! Yes, help around the house is great, but it all boils down to feeling under appreciated. If the husband were to make the wife feel more appreciated — perhaps thanking her for what has already been done, that might be even more beneficial than helping. Combining help and gratitude could be the ultimate healer in this fight.

6. Acceptance

Knowing your issues and where you stand can help prevent you from having the argument over and over again. Agreeing to disagree and naming the issue can prevent arguments in the future. For example, I was walking a couple through this exercise and this process happened:

  • Common Issue: Vacationing with the in-laws. Husband doesn’t like to vacation with his in-laws, Wife does.

  • Localize: Trip to Hawaii over Thanksgiving

  • Agreement: We both know we need a vacation and we are due for an in-law visit.

  • Why’s: Wife learns that the reason Husband doesn’t like to vacation with the in-laws has nothing to do with them. He loves the in-laws! But he wants more couple time. “We are so busy during the work week that our vacations are the only alone time we get together.”

  • Acceptance: This is a difference in preference — it is not an attack on the in-laws or a desire not to vacation together. A possible compromise to recognize the underlying need for alone time could be to go on vacation a few days early before the in-laws arrive.

  • Success!

You want your perpetual issues to be more like the crazy uncle who shows up unannounced and less like the hidden rabid dog in the closet. In other words, the more your issue is talked about, tolerated and discussed, the easier and less trap-filled it will be.

Sometimes it feels like talking about the nitty-gritty side of romance is taboo, but I think when we explore the issues we learn and benefit. Let’s bring the light to the dark.

Kittens Make Epic Fight Scene From ‘The Lion King’ So Much Better

Question: How do you improve on an epic scene from a classic Disney movie?

Answer: Swap out the animated characters for live kittens. Keep all the action the same, just with kittens.

Here’s an example, using the climactic fight scene from “The Lion King.”

Grown-up Simba? Bam! He’s a kitten now. Scar? DONE. Kitten-ized.

We can’t imagine how long it took for YouTuber Pasdidée to wrestle his actors into line, but it’s truly a work of art.

It is not, however, the only time someone recreated “The Lion King” with kittens.

French Parliament Passes Draft Law To Curb Public Health Cost And Fight Unhealthy Stereotypes

PARIS (AP) — Too-thin models, too much drinking, sexy cigarette packs: France’s parliament is cracking down on all of these in a sweeping bill designed to improve public health and trim public health costs — while tackling unhealthy stereotypes along the way.

The National Assembly, parliament’s lower house, voted 311-241 on Tuesday to approve the draft law. It now goes to the Senate before a final vote back in the assembly. The Socialist-led government hopes the bill will take effect by the summer.

Health Minister Marisol Touraine, the bill’s champion, said it is “crucial to tackle the challenge of aging and the emergence of new diseases” while preserving France’s generous and highly vaunted health care system.

Here’s a look at some of the key reforms:

ANOREXIC MODELS

In a measure that could cause ripples in France’s famed fashion industry, the bill would make it a crime to use anorexic models or encourage anorexia.

It would forbid anyone with a body mass index, or BMI, below a certain level from earning money as a model. The exact level — based on height and weight — would be defined later by decree if the bill becomes law.

Any modeling agency or individual who pays a model with a BMI below the designated level would face up to six months in prison and 75,000 euros ($ 80,000) in fines if convicted.

Some 40,000 people are estimated to have anorexia in France — 90 percent of them women, according to the Health Ministry.

PLAIN CIGARETTE PACKS

The government’s plan includes a measure that would require manufacturers to package cigarettes in plain containers by May 2016. Packs would have the same shape, size, color and typeset. Brands would still be mentioned, but would be restricted to a small discreet place on the packaging.

The government believes less attractive packaging would help discourage young people from starting to smoke. Around 30 percent of French people smoke — a habit linked to some 73,000 deaths a year in France, according to official statistics.

UNDERAGE DRINKING

People who encourage minors to drink excessively could face a year behind bars and a $ 16,000 (15,000 euro) fine.

The sale to minors of products inciting people to get drunk, such as T-shirts, would be forbidden.

Touraine, the health minister, has cautioned against the ills of binge-drinking, and has used the English-language term to describe the act of excessive imbibing over a short period of time.

As many as 49,000 people die every year in France from the consequences of drinking alcohol, according to a 2013 study published in the European Journal of Public Health.

Other measures, including requiring the labeling of alcohol-related risks in advertising, were scrapped during the Assembly debate, under pressure from the conservative opposition and France’s influential wine lobby.

CHILD OBESITY

In a step that would require changes to the business model of some fast-food chains, the bill would ban free-refill soda fountains in restaurants in a move aimed at combatting obesity.

Touraine, speaking in parliament, noted that the free-refill policy was “common in other countries, … is spreading in our country and could be attractive to young people.”

SUN-BED BAN FOR MINORS

Amid concerns about skin cancer, the bill would bar tanning salons from selling sun-bed services to customers under 18 years old or to engage in advertising targeting minors.

FACILITIES FOR DRUG USERS

The bill would allow for a six-year test period in which intravenous drug users would be given access to clean needles under medical supervision and in the presence of drug counselors.

The conservative opposition — which controls the Senate — has criticized the measure as a “very bad signal” to French youth, saying it trivializes the use of drugs.

Under France’s legislative system, the National Assembly has final say in the passage of laws — so even if the Senate alters or rejects the bill, it could become law.

Protesters Continue to Fight Dolce & Gabbana

D&G STILL UNDER FIRE: The organizers of Thursday’s protest outside of Dolce & Gabbana’s Old Bond Street store in London are rallying more troops to try to pressure Macy’s and Debenhams into dropping the brand. As of Friday afternoon, nearly 17,000 people had signed an online petition to that effect, in response to Domenico Dolce’s and Stefano Gabbana’s recent controversial comments about in vitro fertilization that prompted Elton to call for a boycott of the brand.

Edwin Sesange, director of the LGBT Out and Proud Diamond Group, and Peter Tatchell, director of his own human rights advocacy foundation, penned the Care2 petition. At this point, no further protests are planned, according to a spokesman for the group.

Macy’s and Debenhams had not responded to requests for comment Friday afternoon.

Justin Bieber And Orlando Bloom Maybe, Possibly Just Had The Lamest Fight Ever

You know those fights in baseball where everyone rushes out onto the field and then just sorta gives each other dirty looks for a little while?

Well, here’s one that might be even lamer — the supposed fight between Orlando Bloom and Justin Bieber that went viral Tuesday night.

TMZ, which posted the video, says the “what’s up bitch” you can (barely) hear at the beginning of the clip is Bieber yelling at Bloom, but that’s about as exciting as it gets. Most of the footage shows guys standing around, with a little finger-pointing for good measure.

The incident took place outside Cipriani restaurant in Ibiza, Spain. The joint was packed with celebs such as Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Diddy, according to the New York Daily News.

Justin was at one table, and Orlando was at another,” Page Six quoted a source as saying. “But when Bieber and his party were later walking past Bloom’s table, Orlando refused to shake Bieber’s hand.”

After that, “Bieber said something rude to Orlando, like, ‘She was good,’” the source was quoted as saying.

The “she” was ostensibly Bloom’s ex-wife, Miranda Kerr, who is reportedly friendly with The Biebs.

Another source told Page Six that Bieber didn’t make the comment and didn’t even know Bloom was there.

Eventually, the dispute made its way outside. Both TMZ and Page Six report that Bloom took a swing at Bieber, although that’s not seen in the clip. Bieber either ducked, or the punch missed, or it connected — all depending on which version of events you choose to believe.

In addition to Bieber’s reported friendship with Kerr, Bloom has been seen with the singer’s on-again, off-again girlfriend, Selena Gomez.

After the incident, Bieber sent out this tweet:

Amazon, Warner Bros. Fight Results In Delays Of Pre-Orders For Some Movies

Everything is NOT awesome between Amazon and Warner Bros. The online retailer has pulled all pre-orders for next week’s DVD and Blu-Ray releases of “The Lego Movie.”

The New York Times reports that Amazon and Warner are locked in a contract battle that’s also seen pre-order delays for other upcoming Warner films, including “300: Rise of an Empire,” “Winter’s Tale” and “Transcendence.”

An Amazon spokesperson reached by the Times would not comment on the business dispute, and Warner Bros. spokesman Jim Noonan told Reuters that his company’s “policy is to not comment on contract points or any proprietary issues involving our partners.”

Fans of Warner Bros. movies aren’t the only ones affected by the dispute.

VizMedia, which produces Japanese animated DVDs such as the “Bleach” and “Naruto” series that are distributed by Warner Bros., has noticed customers posting complaints on Facebook about their inability to pre-order upcoming titles from Amazon.

“Our products are distributed by Warner Brothers, and currently they’re in contract negotiations with Amazon. Pre-orders are disabled while that goes on, but we’re hoping it will be resolved soon,” VizMedia stated on May 29.

Other movie fans have taken to Amazon’s forums to vent.

“I guess I can thank Amazon for steering me back towards brick and mortar stores,” a user named John A. wrote while complaining about the inability to pre-order “The Lego Movie.”

Amazon is also currently fighting with the Hachette publishing company, pulling pre-orders for some books and delaying shipments for others. At one point, Amazon suggested that customers who want those titles shop elsewhere.

Although that dispute remains unresolved, Amazon began restocking some Hachette titles last week.

“Lego Movie,” “300: Rise of an Empire” and “Winter’s Tale” were released online ahead of the DVD and Blu-Ray, and as of this writing, the streaming versions remain available via Amazon Instant Video.

Fight Back Against Drone Surveillance… With Fashion

The drones are coming to steal your privacy, but now there’s a fashionable way to tell them to butt out. Join the Stealth War Wear.

Stealth Wear, which was created by Adam Harvey, was designed to “protect the wearer from drone surveillance.” While it seems like privacy has become a privilege, it can now also be quite fashionable –Harvey has designed a scarf and hoodie that are “anti-drone,” limiting the thermal- imaging technology drones use to acquire information. Harvey spoke to Wired about what prompted him to create the collection of outerwear:

“Total surveillance is a term I first heard from Anders Sandberg during this presentation at a Tabula Rasa conference… He predicts that by 2050 a country can execute total surveillance on a population for .01% of their GDP.”

newmuseum

While we’re not quite sure when the drones will take over the skies, we do know that Stealth Wear will hit stores soon, although the clothing won’t come cheap. We have a feeling that their fashion show won’t be anything like Fendi’s, where drones were used to record their autumn/winter 2014 collection in Milan.

But while this mix of drone and fashion may seem out of this world, smart accessories (which are a little less scary) may be the next big “thing.” The Sesame Ring, NFC ring, the Shine and MEMI bracelet are the latest innovations that think for us, but they still can’t block drones — we’ll have to stick to our trusty Stealth Wear scarf and hoodie for that.

New Survey Sheds Light On What Married Couples Fight About Most

It is said that money is the root of all evil, so it’s no surprise that married couples fight over money more than any other subject, according to a new survey.

Money Magazine polled 1,010 married adults ages 25 and over with household incomes above $ 50,000 to find out how couples manage their finances once they’ve tied the knot.

Survey results showed that 70 percent of couples argued about money more than household chores, togetherness, sex, snoring and what’s for dinner.

So what exactly are those financial fights all about?

Couples cited frivolous purchases, household budgeting and credit card debt as the biggest sources of friction.

The survey also revealed that husbands are happiest when their wives earn the same amount or more money than they do. Men with high-earning wives also reported hotter sex lives.

Standard Hotel Fires Employee Who Leaked Solange And Jay Z Fight Video

NEW YORK (AP) — A hotel where someone recorded security video appearing to show Beyonce’s sister, Solange Knowles, attacking Jay Z inside an elevator said Wednesday it had identified and fired the person.

The Standard Hotel said the person had been terminated for “breaching the security polices of the hotel and recording the confidential CCTV video.” Celebrity website TMZ posted the 3-minute video on Monday and said it was shot last week inside a Standard Hotel elevator.

The video appears to show Solange attacking Jay Z in Beyonce’s presence. A security guard intervenes. The footage shows the performers in the outfits they wore to the Met Gala last week. There is no audio.

The hotel said after the video was first aired that it was “shocked and disappointed” by the security breach. It said Wednesday that it will turn over “all available information to criminal authorities.”

Representatives for Jay Z, Beyonce and Solange haven’t commented on the video and didn’t reply to emails sent Wednesday seeking comment.

Jay Z and Beyonce, who were married in 2008, will kick off their co-headlining “On the Run Tour” on June 25 in Miami.

Solange recently performed at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, where Beyonce joined her onstage.

Virginia AG Mark Herring To Fight Same-Sex Marriage Ban, Reports Suggest

Virginia’s new attorney general Mark Herring is making a major reversal on his state’s same-sex marriage stance, according to The Washington Post and NPR.

Herring will announce on Thursday that he finds Virginia’s same-sex marriage ban to be unconstitutional, The Washington Post reported.

The move would be going against the position of Herring’s predecessor Ken Cuccinelli (R), who once stated, “I cannot support something that I believe brings nothing but self-destruction, not only physically but of their soul.”

As the Post points out, Herring, a Democrat, will also be reversing his own stance from eight years ago, when he voted against same-sex marriage.

“As attorney general, I cannot and will not defend laws that violate Virginians’ rights,” Herring told “Morning Edition.”

After a review of a case challenging the state’s same-sex marriage ban, Herring concluded, “The commonwealth will be siding with the plaintiffs in this case and with every other Virginia couple whose right to marry is being denied.”

Texas, Ohio Fight Over Air Force One Where Lyndon B. Johnson Took Oath Of Office

By Jon Herskovitz

AUSTIN, Texas, Jan 15 (Reuters) – The foundation that backs the library for President Lyndon Baines Johnson is locking horns with the Air Force museum in Ohio over an Air Force One jet that Johnson admirers believe belongs in Texas.

The LBJ Foundation is seeking to have the modified Boeing 707 that came into service under President John F. Kennedy and in which Johnson took the oath of the presidency hours after Kennedy’s assassination, transported to Austin and put on display near the LBJ Presidential Library.

“It would mean so much and it would become one of the most popular tourist destinations in Texas,” said Tom Johnson, chairman emeritus of the LBJ Foundation.

Even though the plane served as the primary presidential jet from 1962 to 1972 – from Kennedy through Richard Nixon – the foundation believes it is inextricably linked to the Johnson presidency.

Along with the move and display at the LBJ library on the University of Texas campus, the foundation also wants to restore the interior of the plane, also known as Special Air Mission (SAM) 26000, to better reflect the state it was in when it was used as the primary presidential plane.

There is a separate Air Force One plane on display at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation and Library in California, which is on loan from the U.S. Air Force.

The LBJ Foundation, which has identified sources of funding for the move, display and interior restoration, is hoping the Air Force will lend out this plane in a similar fashion.

“They have many, many spectacular planes at Dayton. We just want one of them,” said Johnson, who is not related to the 36th U.S. President.

The National Museum of the U.S. Air Force, located at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base near Dayton, said the plane is staying in Ohio.

“The museum is not considering a donation or loan of SAM 26000 to the LBJ Library & Museum or to any other entity,” museum spokesman Rob Bardua said in an email.

The plane was used by U.S. presidents through 1992. The museum sees the plane that carried presidents, heads of state and other dignitaries as an important historic aircraft.

“It was built to indicate American air superiority to the world and was not uniquely identified to one president,” Bardua said.

The plane flew Nixon to China and the Soviet Union for historic meetings at the height of the Cold War. It was also used by former Secretary of State James Baker for talks with Iraqi leaders about removing their troops from Kuwait ahead of the 1991 Gulf War.

The plane is painted to reflect its exterior in 1963 and the interior is configured for its use in 1998, when it was delivered to the museum. (Reporting by Jon Herskovitz, editing by Scott Malone and Gunna Dickson)

Unbelievable YouTube Comment Fight Gets Glorious Reenactment (NSFW VIDEO)

YouTube comments may have hit a new low with the exchange that inspired this latest “Reconstruction” by Dead Parrot.

On a video about the death of Nelson Mandela, one ill-informed mourner sparked the ire of another commenter who actually knew who Nelson Mandela was… and that he didn’t appear in any of the “Almighty” movies.

Their exchange is jaw-dropping enough, but reenacted by Grahame Edwards and Eryl Lloyd Parry, it becomes otherworldly in the best possible way.

As far as we’re concerned, this is the only reason YouTube comments still exist.
