5 Things We Learned About The Division 2

With the gameplay of The Division 2 already on display a couple of months ago at E3 2018, the team at The Division 2 developer Massive Entertainment took a different tack for its behind closed doors demo at this year’s Gamescom. I was given a deep dive into the lengths that Massive is going to in order to present a compelling and authentic open-world to players, and here are five big takeaways.

It seems like an obvious choice that a game about an ongoing civil war in the United States would take place in the nation’s capital, but Washington, D.C. wasn’t always going to be the setting for The Division 2. Developer Massive Entertainment originally considered both Seattle and New Orleans as potential settings for their open-world shooter sequel, but ultimately settled on D.C. largely due to the sheer diversity in environments that would help push the game experience far beyond the slightly one-note concrete jungle of the original’s New York City.

4 Things You’ll Learn About an Egyptian-Themed Sect Hiding Child Sex Abuse, on Monday’s PMI: Cults

On May 8, 2002, cult leader Dwight “Malachi” York, was arrested as he was walking into a grocery store in Eatonton, Georgia —  putting an end, authorities said, to his years of sexually abusing the children of his followers.

Soon afterward, local and federal law enforcement officers busted through the gates of “Tama-Re,” the Egyptian-themed compound of York’s United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors.

There they discovered dozens of female followers, 50 to 75 children, a stockpile of weapons and evidence of York’s sexual depravity, including a stuffed Pink Panther with a penis attached and photos taken at Florida’s Disney World where York would often take his child victims.

Authorities began investigating molestation claims against York two years earlier, when his estranged son, Jacob, and several of York’s victims came forward with accounts of slavery, starvation and sexual abuse dating back decades.

In 2004, York was convicted of five counts of racketeering and six counts of transporting minors across state lines for sexual purposes. He was sentenced to 135 years in federal prison, where he remains at 73.

His group’s history, the crimes he inflicted on others and their stories of survival will be shared on Monday night’s episode of People Magazine Investigates: Cults, airing on Investigation Discovery and exclusively previewed above.

Here are four things viewers will learn from the show.

• For more on the rise and fall of the United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors, subscribe now to PEOPLE or pick up this week’s issue, on newsstands now.

1. York Came to Power in the ’70s Preaching Black Supremacy

York, an ex-con and Harlem street peddler, started his own sect in New York City in the ’70s, where he preached a black supremacist ideology mixed with traditional Islamic doctrine.

In 1972, he moved his growing congregation into various apartments he bought in the Bushwick section of Brooklyn and called his new commune the Ansaru Allah Community.

At his headquarters, his followers strictly adhered to his teachings and beliefs. Children attended his schools, women were mandated to work in the office and his male followers were tasked with recruiting new members.

“When you were around him, you were mesmerized by him,” survivor and former member Ruby Garnett says in Monday’s episode. “He was so charismatic. It was just amazing. I thought York was a Messiah.”

York was also a staunch believer in polygamy and had sex with many of his female followers. A select group of his favorites became his wives.

Cult survivor Niki LopezMicheal Anthony Clark

“He gave me a diamond ring,” says Garnett, who wed York at the age of 19. “I was so happy, I cried. I felt special because I am looking at being in his family as a privilege — an honor of service.”

However, when Garnett learned that York had sodomized an underage female follower, her feelings curdled.

“When he told me this story about violating her, in my mind I am saying, ‘Is he testing me?’ ” she recalls. “I was terrified.”

2. York Claimed He Was Royalty

Over time, York’s need to control every aspect of his followers’ lives grew more sinister and sexually depraved, according to former members as well as law enforcement sources and news accounts.

Niki Lopez — who joined the group at age 11, with her mom — was 13 years old when her sexual grooming process began.

At first, she says, York allowed her and a few of the other kids special access to his house to watch cartoons and eat junk food.

“He would give us little treats. … He gave us T-shirts,” Lopez says on PMI: Cults. “We were like, ‘We have short-sleeved T-shirts that no one else has.’ ”

Soon, however, Lopez says she was taught how to perform oral sex by one of York’s wives, who convinced her that sex with him was a Sudanese tradition to prepare them for marriage. (York claimed at one point to be heir to the throne of Sudan.)

One night, Lopez says, she was asked to stay behind at York’s house, where he held her down and raped her. She was 15.

• For more on the abuses of Dwight “Malachi” York and the United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors, watch Monday’s People Magazine Investigates: Cults at 9 p.m. ET on Investigation Discovery.

3. York Moved to Georgia After Police Got Suspicious

As time passed, law enforcement in N.Y.C. started to probe York’s possible involvement in criminal enterprises and if his group was being funded by organized bank robberies and counterfeit checks.

As the scrutiny mounted, York moved his followers to Eatonton, Georgia, in 1993.

It was there that his teachings took a bizarre and unpredictable turn.

At first, York called himself Chief Black Thunderbird Eagle, the leader of a lost Native American tribe that fought against early European colonization. He then claimed to be an extraterrestrial from the planet Rizq. Eventually he morphed into the leader of the United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors, proclaiming a philosophy that revolved around Egyptology and UFOs.

York declared that his armed compound — which featured two 40-foot plywood and stucco pyramids and a Sphinx — was a sovereign nation and refused to follow local, state and federal laws.

By 1998, whispers of York’s sexual depravity reached local enforcement when they learned about a rash of underage Nuwaubian girls giving birth in area hospitals.

However, the turning point in the case came in 2001, when York’s estranged son as well as other followers — including Niki Lopez — came forward with their tales of abuse.

4. More Than 40 Victims Cooperated with Police

After Niki began cooperating with law enforcement, more than 40 victims spoke out to give investigators additional details of sexual and physical abuse at the hands of York, which lead to the raid on his 476-acre compound.

York was arrested and charged with multiple state and federal crimes, including more than 100 counts of child molestation, six counts of transporting minors across state lines for sexual purposes and five counts of racketeering.

He was convicted in 2004 and sentenced to 135 years in federal prison.

“It was kind of liberating,” says Lopez about testifying against York. “I felt like he can’t tell me anything. He can’t make me do anything. That was the first time of me getting my power back.”

The People Magazine Investigates: Cults episode on the United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors airs Monday (9 p.m. ET) on Investigation Discovery.

Who Is Emily Ratajkowski’s Husband? Five Things to Know About Sebastian Bear-McClard

Emily Ratajkowski is a married woman.

In a surprise ceremony, the 26-year-old model tied the knot to actor and producer Sebastian Bear-McClard, with whom she only started cozying up in the past few weeks, at City Hall in N.Y.C.

“I got married today,” Ratajowski wrote on a selfie with her new husband as part of a series of pics she posted right after the quick ceremony. In the snap, Bear-McClard kisses the model’s cheek as the couple holds hands. While Ratajkowski went without a massive diamond engagement ring (the couple both are wearing a simple gold band), her hubby flashed two other rings on his fingers that read “EM” and “RATA.”

So who is Bear-McClard? Here are five things to know about Ratajkowski’s husband.

1. He’s an actor and producer

Bear-McClard most recently produced the 2017 film Good Time, starring Robert Pattinson. He’s also worked on several indie films including Heaven Knows What (2014), and Still Life (2006).

In 2014, Joshua and Ben Safdie, a New York-based writer/producer/director duo, launched Elara Pictures with Bear-McClard and producer Oscar Boyson as partners.

Bear-McClard has been nominated for multiple Gotham Independent Film Awards, including Best Feature Film for Good Time. He was also nominated for an Independent Spirit Award in 2014 for Heaven Knows What.

2. He comes from a family of artists

Bear-McClard’s dad is an artist who moved to New York after graduating from the San Fransisco Art Institute.

“Michael was a teen rebel in the 60’s and decided he was an artist and graduated with honors from San Fransisco Art Institute and moved to New York,” Peter McClard, Bear-McClard’s uncle, tells PEOPLE. “He is an amazing artist. Some time in the 70’s he met Liza Bear and though they never married, the Bohemians that they were, they had Sebastian.”

Michael McClard currently has art on display at the Baahng Gallery in New York.

Because of his parents’ involvement in the NYC art scene, Bear-McClard grew up going to galleries and industry parties.

“Sebastian was a great, totally New York-bred kid and spent his youth being dragged to cool art events, parties and surrounded by the hippest of the hip New York art scene in the 80s and 90s.”

3. He is friends with social media star Fat Jewish

Fat Jewish (real name Josh Ostrovsky) served as a witness at Bear-McClard’s wedding ceremony, but the two go way back.

“In High School or shortly thereafter he met some friends and they had a rap group called Team Facelift and Sebastian was their official videographer,” says Peter McClard. “They were hilarious and talented and their frontman was the Fat Jew.”

The social media star also appears in Bear-McClard’s Facebook default photo.

4. His relationship with Ratajkowski has been low-key

Rumors began swirling that they were an item after the producer and model were spotted packing on the PDA on Valentine’s Day.

Though photos of them only surfaced a few weeks ago, they’ve known each other longer, according to sources.

The two had yet to go public until their wedding announcement.

5. He has his family’s support

“We’re proud of him for settling down with Emily and what he’s done and about to do in his film career,” says Peter McClard. “He’s a good, caring guy and a great listener and people love working with him because he gets things done. Apparently, Emily loves him too.”

Who Is Brad Falchuk? 5 Things to Know About Gwyneth Paltrow’s Fiancé

With Gwyneth Paltrow confirming that she’s engaged to Brad Falchuk after three years of dating, many are curious to know more about the 46-year-old writer-producer.

The couple went public with their romance in April 2015 at Robert Downey Jr.’s 50th birthday bash, after a year of flying under the radar with their relationship. And they’ve been equally shy about their engagement: ET reported that Falchuk popped the question a year ago.

A rep for Paltrow has not commented yet, but a source close to the actress previously told PEOPLE, “She’s crazy about Brad.” Though the source said that she’s “cautious about marriage” and “very happy with how things are,” it wasn’t “out of the question” for the couple to walk down the aisle in the future.

Here are 5 things to know about Falchuk.

1. He’s worked with Ryan Murphy for years 

Falchuk began his television career as a writer, working on a few short-lived series before joining the season 1 writing staff of Murphy’s FX series Nip/Tuck in 2003. From there, the two formed a strong bond — teaming up to create Glee (2009), Scream Queens (2015) and the upcoming Connie Britton/Angela Bassett-led 9-1-1 for Fox, as well as the horror anthology series American Horror Story (2011) for FX. He and Murphy also serve as executive producers on the true crime anthology series FX’s American Crime Story, which premiered in 2016 with a season devoted to the O.J. Simpson trial and will open 2018 with a season devoted to the Gianni Versace murder.

2. He met Paltrow on the set of Glee

It was on Glee where Falchuk and Paltrow would meet, as she joined the show in 2010 for a season 2 guest spot to play lackadaisical substitute teacher Holly Holliday. The appearance went so well that Paltrow would reprise her role as Holliday three more times, including the show’s 100th episode in 2014. All in all, she cover 10 tracks on the show — from Joan Jett’s “Do You Wanna Touch Me (Oh Yeah)” and Prince’s “Kiss” to Fleetwood Mac’s “Landslide” and her most popular cover, Cee-Lo Green’s “Forget You,” which she later performed life with Green in the 2011 Grammy Awards.

3. He’s a father of two 

Falchuk has two children, Brody and Isabella, from his 10-year marriage to Suzanne Bukinik, which ended in a divorce filing in March 2013. He often shares photos of the two on social media — and has taken Isabella with him as his date to the Emmys in the past.

So far there haven’t been any shots of Brody and Isabella with Paltrow’s two kids with the rocker — daughter Apple, 13, and son Moses, 11 — whom she shares with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.

4. He gushes about Paltrow on Instagram

Speaking of sharing about loved ones on social media, Falchuk sure hasn’t shied away from expressing his love for Paltrow on Instagram.

“This is the most beautiful woman of all time and today is her birthday,” he wrote in September on Paltrow’s 44th birthday, captioning a photo of her eating pizza, drinking red wine and flashing what he described as “that f—— perfect smile.”  He continued: “We are all so lucky that she came into the world (but no one is luckier than me). Happy Birthday, Love.”

Other photos of Paltrow on his site come from his “getting ready” series, which often features Paltrow in various stages of preparation. “#LegsForDays” Falchuk hashtagged one shot of his fiancée.

5. He’s priming a groundbreaking new television project

Falchuk’s newest project, the pilot of which is currently filming in New York City, is the upcoming FX show Pose. Set in the Big Apple in the ’80s, the show focuses on a “the collusion of various worlds including the elite rich and the downtown ball culture,” according to Entertainment Weekly.

That’s not what makes it unique, of course. No, Pose will break through as the show with the most transgender series regulars of any show in American television history. A first look image of trans cast members Hailie Sahar, Indya Moore, Dominique Jackson, Angelica Ross, and M.J. Rodriguez dropped earlier this month.

Pose also features Evan Peters, Kate Mara, James Van Der Beek, and Tatiana Maslany in major roles. Tony Award winner Billy Porter (Kinky Boots) is also set to appear.

Topshop Links with Netflix on “Stranger Things 2” Takeover, Screenings

TOPSHOP TAKES A TRIP: Topshop has teamed with Netflix on a zeitgeist-y deal that will see stores across the U.K. channel the spirit of the hit, Eighties-inspired TV series “Stranger Things,” which stars Winona Ryder and teen actors Millie Bobby Brown, Caleb McLaughlin, and Gaten Matarazzo.
In the run-up to Halloween, Topshop and Topman will be working with Netflix to promote “Stranger Things 2” with in-store cinema-style screenings at the Oxford Circus flagship in London, themed setting from the TV series and an accompanying capsule collection that will go on sale at Topshop stores in the U.K. on Oct. 20.
Topshop has described the Netflix collaboration as a “360 relationship” that will fuse fashion, culture and entertainment ahead of the season two release on Oct. 27.
Sheena Sauvaire, global marketing and communications director at Topshop, said in an interview that the worlds of entertainment, culture, fashion and tech are all colliding and that the Netflix tie-up made sense for the retailer’s young customer. “Plus, we’ve always admired how Netflix has disrupted entertainment,” she said.
Sauvaire added that the in-store takeover plays to the Topshop customer’s obsession with retro styling right now, and in particular the look of the “Stranger Things” characters who all live in

5 Unexpected Things We Learned On The ‘Harry Potter’ Studio Tour

You can go to London without visiting the Warner Bros. studio, where cast and crew brought J.K. Rowling’s expansive magical world to the screen. But if you’re a Harry Potter” fan, you really shouldn’t.

HuffPost had the pleasure of touring the corners of Hogwarts and beyond that have been carefully set up for fans to lovingly gaze at, obsessively photograph, and even consume ― the Butterbeer is delicious ― in Leavesden, England.

Awash in “Harry Potter” nostalgia, we walked through the Great Hall, where professors McGonagall and Snape stand at attention on either side of Dumbledore. We peered into the surprisingly compact Gryffindor common room and brushed by the magnificent Fat Lady, sans password. We saw Harry’s Hogwarts acceptance letters strung up to cloud the Dursleys’ living room with a flurry of paper whizzing motionless out of the fireplace. We nipped into the Hogwarts Express, where cars representing Harry, Ron and Hermione’s many years of rides are littered with candy wrappers, books and copies of the Quibbler. We admired a wall of newspapers, envelopes, cereal boxes and every other array of printed prop, all blessed with the wizarding world’s unique typography that screams in block letters at one turn and appears calmly serifed at another. We passed the Knight Bus and the infamously well-manicured Privet Drive. We forgot our Put-Outer, so the street remained illuminated. 

In a new section of the studio, we witnessed the Whomping Willow in destructive action and strolled along a trail through a forest full of meticulously handcrafted trees that obscure one special hippogriff and too many arachnids. And that’s not even half of all we saw.

Among the many bits and bobs along the way, we picked up some trivia on the “Harry Potter” film series. Our list doesn’t give away everything to be discovered on a visit, and certainly can’t replicate the whimsical wizarding atmosphere culled from the thoughtful work of prop developers and costumers over 10 years of filming. Nevertheless, we’ve shared a few pieces of knowledge below. 

1. Some of the Hogwarts castle portraits actually depict muggles.

Although the depth and breadth of Rowling’s wizarding world could surely have produced enough famous magical faces to fill the halls of Hogwarts ― the set included nearly 350 enchanted portraits ― producers allowed many of the film’s crew to pose for portraits to fill in the gaps. On view, for the sharp-sighted, are Barry Wilkinson the prop master, David Heyman the producer and Stuart Craig the production designer, among others. All look as if they know just the precise way to inflect “leviosa.”

2. There’s a picture of a young Professor McGonagall hanging in the Gryffindor common room.

Her dark hair is greying, and she displays a very prim expression, gazing slightly down her nose at the painter, but the witch pictured bears only a slight resemblance to Dame Maggie Smith. Or the witch described in the book, with her affinity for emerald green and tartan robes; this McGonagall is in blue, with a gold pendant around her neck. (Yes, you’ll have to make a visit to see her.)

3. Some of the potions ingredients in Snape’s classroom are actually zoo souvenirs. 

Professor Snape is a closet fan of muggle zoos, it seems. Among the more than 500 of bottles stashed along the walls of the dungeon classroom, some with handwritten labels, are plastic animals from the shop at the zoo in London’s Regent’s Park. That’s a significantly cuter way to illustrate pickled animals, like the ones the dungeon is meant to house, than some of the other things in those jars ― namely, baked animal bones from a nearby butcher. 

4. 15,000 glowing prophecy orbs were trashed because director David Yates changed his mind.

Well, not trashed, exactly ― you can see them displayed on the tour. The dusty glass orbs were created to illustrate the Ministry of Magic’s luminescent Hall of Prophecy that contained records of foretold events, including the prophecy made by Professor Trelawney about a child with the power to defeat Voldemort. The props weren’t used in the film, though, because Yates ― who directed “The Order of the Phoenix,” “The Half-Blood Prince” and both “Deathly Hallows” installments ― decided to use CGI to create them. They might’ve been destroyed anyway in the Battle of the Department of Mysteries, but imagine being those prop designers.

5. In certain scenes, Hagrid’s head is fake. 

One of the more eerie behind-the-scenes revelations is seeing the bodiless head of Hagrid ― complete with artful wrinkles, rosy veins and individual eyebrow hairs ― that the prop department made for tall stunt doubles portraying him in action scenes and wide shots. Filmmakers used this and many other tricks to make the lovable half-giant appear so much larger than life: Another had Robbie Coltrane, who is only 6-foot-1, seated at a split-level table, one higher and nearer the camera and one lower and further away, to achieve a forced perspective effect that made the actor appear huge across from his companion. You can try it out for yourself on the tour ― photos encouraged.

Tickets can be found on the “Harry Potter” Warner Bros. Studio Tour website.

From June 1 to 30, HuffPost is celebrating the 20th anniversary of the very first “Harry Potter” book by reminiscing about all things Hogwarts. Accio childhood memories.
