Gerard Darel to Open U.S. Boutiques in New York, Los Angeles

Paris-based contemporary fashion brand Gerard Darel will expand into the U.S. with the opening of freestanding boutiques in New York and Los Angeles beginning this month. The New York flagship will open at 145 Spring Street in SoHo on Nov. 8 and the Los Angeles location, in Westfield Century City, will open Dec. 17. The outdoor shopping center recently underwent a $ 1 billion renovation.
The stores will showcase Gerard Darel’s Parisian aesthetic with vintage furnishings fused with modern elements unique to the New York and Los Angeles locales. Both boutiques will carry the full range of women’s ready-to-wear, handbags, shoes and accessories.
The brand, which was founded in 1971 by Danielle and Gerard Darel, made its entry into the U.S. market via Bloomingdale’s shop-in-shops at 20 locations. Today it is sold in more than 50 countries, in more than 500 boutiques and shop-in-shops worldwide.
The label has amassed a celebrity following including Angelina Jolie, Jessica Alba, Olivia Palermo, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Halle Berry. It has also tapped Stephanie Seymour, Christy Turlington Burns and Robin Wright for past campaigns. Peter Lindbergh shot Wright at Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles. Gerard Darel’s current spokeswoman is French actress Charlotte Gainsbourg.

Porter Magazine Brings Incredible Women Series to U.S.

Porter magazine is bringing its Incredible Women List of 50 entries, which was published last month in its winter issue, to life with two events in the U.S. Tonight editor in chief Lucy Yeomans will host a question-and-answer with Misty Copeland, who was featured on the list, in New York and on Nov. 1 the magazine’s second annual Incredible Woman Gala will take place in Los Angeles at NeueHouse, hosted by Yeomans and Donna Langley, chairman of Universal Pictures. Both events are done in partnership with Estée Lauder.
The talk with Copeland is the fourth in Porter’s series, which previously featured Serpentine chief executive officer Yana Peel, conservationist Saba Douglas-Hamilton, and film director Sofia Coppola. Last year’s gala was held at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, and instead of staging a typical awards show, Yeomans enlisted a company called Letter’s Live to create a performance element in which Natalia Vodianova, Christiane Amanpour and Florence Welch read letters Patti Smith, Martha Gellhorn and Tina Fey. This year’s gala will feature a similar performance aspect. “We look to celebrate women who in the past year have done something to affect positive change for women either in their field, industry or the

Gentle Monster to Open Second U.S. Store in Downtown Los Angeles

Korean eyewear brand Gentle Monster will open its second U.S. location and first West Coast store in downtown Los Angeles on Oct. 5 in an impressive new space that embodies the “high-end experimentation” and disruption the brand has become known for with its product, space, styling, culture redesign and technology.
The 4,800-square-foot museum-like space at 814 S. Broadway will include kinetic sculpture and interior installations by Floria Sigisomondi, and the opening night party will feature a performance by Victoria Modesta.
The Los Angeles store experience was inspired by traditional methods of harvesting, as the stretched path inside guides visitors through a journey reimagining the process of harvesting, drying and threshing ripened rice crops. The space was designed to touch on ideas associated with the season, and fall being the time of harvest.
Scarecrows greet visitors high on top of terraced “fields,” where mother-of-pearl finishes add a layer of Eastern ambience. Nearly 2,000 metallic rods, symbolizing rice, stand just behind the inner entrance. The twigs left after the harvest are represented by rugs designed by knitting designer Misu A Barbe. An installation by artist Jung Uk Yang at the far back of the space represents the final step in harvesting rice: threshing.

British Brands Converge on U.S. Men’s Market

With Brexit looming and the potential loss of commerce with other European nations, the U.K. fashion and textile industry is increasing its focus on the American market.
At the men’s trade shows in New York this week, nearly 50 designers and manufacturers of men’s wear brought their wares to the city. Among the brands showing at Project, MRket, Capsule, Liberty Fairs and Man under the tag line “Brits in New York” were Alan Paine, Austin Reed, Barbour, Edward Green, Ettinger, John Smedley, French Connection, Trickers, Derek Rose, Ted Baker London, Troubadour and Richard James.
Paul Alger, director of international business development for the U.K. Fashion & Textile Association, said, “If Brexit happens, we need to make sure we replace the business we’ll lose in continental Europe with other markets. And the U.S. is tops on that list.”
As a result, the UKFT provides grants of 1,200 pounds for brands to show internationally up to six times.
In addition to the U.S., the grants are available to manufacturers showing at Pitti Uomo in Florence, where Alger said 100 U.K. brands were represented at the latest edition in June, as well as at shows in Paris; Lyon, France; Shanghai, and Berlin.

Bench/Body Seeking a Foothold in U.S.

Bench/Body is hoping to aggressively extend its reach in the American market.
The leader in the underwear category in the Philippines, the brand started its assault on the U.S. with a show and cocktail party during New York Fashion Week: Men’s Thursday afternoon.
Ben Chan, the brand’s founder and a Filipino entrepreneur, said after 30 years establishing the Bench brand in Asia and the Middle East, he’s ready to make a mark in America.
“We’re in Guam and San Francisco,” he said, “but we’re not very prominent.”
Chan said he’d been contemplating for a while how to move into the U.S., and decided “rather than put up a lot of brick-and-mortar stores, which would be harder, we’re targeting online.”
Bench/Body is the underwear and intimate apparel offering under the Bench brand. In its home country, Bench is a successful retailer that sells men’s and women’s apparel, fragrances, housewares, snacks and other lifestyle products.
During its show, Bench/Body showed a variety of underwear in basic solids and prints in briefs, boxers and boxer-briefs for men and bikinis and bras for women. Swimwear was also presented for both genders that included shorts and retro square cuts for guys and one- and two-piece solids and prints for women.

Indochino to Add Four More U.S. Stores

Indochino will add to its retail presence this summer by opening four more “showrooms” in the U.S. over the next two months.
The Vancouver-based omnichannel men’s wear brand will open stores in New York, Chicago, Washington, D.C. and King of Prussia, Pa., between July 7 and Aug. 11. That will bring the number of stores overall to 17. Indochino refers to its storefronts as “showrooms” since unlike traditional retail, the locations carry no inventory. Instead, customers visit the store to be fitted and to personalize their suits and furnishings in a process similar to that employed by Bonobos and Knot Standard.
The first new Indochino store will be located at 25 Broad Street, across from the New York Stock Exchange in lower Manhattan. It’s expected to open on July 7. Next up is a location at The Shops at North Bridge in the River North District of Chicago on July 14. On July 21, a unit will bow at the Tyson’s Galleria in McLean, Va., outside Washington, D.C., and the last one will open on Aug. 11 in the King of Prussia Mall outside Philadelphia.
The showrooms will average 2,300 to 2,500 square feet, although the Chicago unit will be smaller, at 1,600

Selected Homme Brings Its Scandinavian Touch to the U.S. Market

After 20 years of distributing its collection throughout Europe, the Middle East, Canada, Latin America, Australia and India, Selected Homme is making its first play into the U.S. market.
The brand is part of Bestseller, a privately owned Danish company that operates over 20 brands including Vero Moda, Only and Vila.
“There is a European trend of openness and we believe the U.S. market is poised for a change,” said Selected Homme’s country manager Brian Edgar.
The Selected Homme main line is divided into three separate collections. The heritage collection, which consists of casual sportswear; the indigo collection that’s made up of denim, and an “identity” assortment that offers a new take on tailored classics. Selected Homme also has a directional label called Homme Plus, which features on-trend clothes. The lines retail from $ 45 to $ 465.
“All three collections can sit together for optimal representation, or each collection can sit alone,” said Edgar.
While the collection is now available in the U.S. via its e-commerce site, Edgar is currently focused on targeting men’s specialty stores including Modern Anthology, Whiskey Ginger and J3 Clothing Company. Selected Homme operates 44 stores around the world, but has no current plans for building up a bricks-and-mortar presence in the U.S.

Al Gore on Why the U.S. Loses Jobs, Power (and Planet Earth) by Leaving the Paris Climate Agreement

President Donald Trump’s controversial decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement was more than “inconvenient” for the U.S. — it threatens jobs, our standing in the world — and most of all, our planet, says former Vice President Al Gore.

“This is as serious as it gets,” the longtime environmentalist tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue.

“What the scientists told us 20 years ago has come true,” says Gore, who warned the world about the catastrophic effects of climate change in his 2006 Academy Award-winning documentary, An Inconvenient Truth. He is following up that documentary with An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, which premieres in August.

“What they are telling us now will happen in the future if we don’t stop using the atmosphere as an open sewer includes the threat that human civilization itself will be in danger,” says Gore, who met with President Trump and his daughter, Ivanka Trump, after the election to discuss climate change.

“We are in a race against time,” says Gore.

The aim of the 2015 global agreement, which had the world cheering when it was ratified, is to reduce carbon emissions as fast as possible to prevent the earth from warming by more than 2 degrees Celsius in this century.

Temperatures that rise higher than 2 degrees Celsius could trigger catastrophic — and irreversible — environmental effects we can no longer control, such as food and water shortages, massive drought, more flooding, extreme weather, the rampant spread of disease and dangers posed by rising seas, say scientists.

 

The climate crisis also poses a threat to our national security — and life as we know it, say experts.

Calling the agreement a “bad deal” for the country that would cost coal miners their jobs, Trump — with the backing of 22 U.S. Senators including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell — withdrew the U.S. from the international agreement.

While Trump insisted he made the right decision for the nation, his decision drew ire from major companies, world leaders and citizens around the globe.

But going green, says Gore and others, will actually boost the economy like never before. “Jobs in the solar industry are increasing 17 times faster than other jobs are increasing in the U.S.,” he says.

The fastest growing job of all? “Wind turbine technician,” he says.

“According to the Bureau of Labor statistics, that will be the fastest growing job in the next ten years,” he says.

All over the world, tens of millions of new jobs in renewable energy, new technologies and sustainability are opening up, he says.

The Sustainability Revolution, as he calls it, “is happening all over the world. It has the scope and magnitude of the industrial revolution but the speed of the digital information revolution and it’s changing everything for the better.”

Solar and wind energy, batteries and hundreds of other efficiency technologies are now becoming much cheaper, far more rapidly than anyone predicted, he says.

“It’s almost like the computer chip revolution and the mobile phone revolution where products got much cheaper, faster than anyone could have imagined, even as their quality improved by leaps and bounds.”

Power Vacuum

Not only is the U.S. losing out on economic and trade opportunities by opting out of the agreement, but it is giving up its standing as the leader of the world, leaving a void that other nations, like China, are eager to fill, says Gore.

Withdrawing our country from the pact “has isolated the U.S. in the world community,” he adds.

By leaving the agreement, the U.S. gave away any say in how the world will tackle the climate crisis in the future, he says.

“The real risk is that all of these other countries will retaliate against the U.S. by trading among themselves and concentrating new jobs in solar and wind in their countries and not the U.S.,” he says.

“They have the legal right now to put up barriers against U.S. products that don’t bear any price for carbon pollution.”

‘We Still Have a Chance’

While the world still has a lot to do to head off catastrophe, “we definitely still have a chance,” he says.

While his upcoming film, An Inconvenient Sequel, will focus on how serious this crisis is, it will also detail how “available” solutions are now, he says.

“The big change from 10 years ago is that solar, wind and other renewable technologies are now getting so cheap that it’s easy to switch over,” he says.

Also encouraging? How U.S. businesses including Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, GE and others, and individual cities and states are moving on without Trump to solve the climate crisis.

On June 1, California, New York and Washington formed the U.S. Climate Alliance, which is committed to upholding the country’s goals under the Paris Agreement and take aggressive action against the climate crisis.

Since then, 10 states including Connecticut, Hawaii and Virginia have joined the coalition.

“We’re going to meet the commitments under the climate agreement, regardless of what President Trump does,” says Gore.

“If we all make up our minds to do this, we can all solve the climate crisis.”

For more information on what you can do to help, please visit Climate Reality Project, the National Resources Defense Council and Climate of Hope.

Herno to Open First U.S. Store, Plots American Expansion

NEW YORK — “I like to work.”
That’s a good thing, since not only is Claudio Marenzi spearheading a major expansion of Herno, his family’s venerable outerwear company, but he’s also the new president of Pitti Immagine.
Marenzi made a quick stop in New York before heading to Toronto and back home to Italy to take one more look at the space that will become Herno’s first American store. The 3,000-square-foot space at 95 Greene Street between Prince and Spring Streets, is scheduled to open by the end of June. It will be sandwiched between Chloé and Tiffany & Co. and near Louis Vuitton, Jimmy Choo, MCM and A Bathing Ape. A Fendi store is expected to open on the block later this year.
“It’s very luxury, but there’s also Bape and MCM,” Marenzi said over a coffee at Sessanta in SoHo. “This is a block where multichoice customers can shop.”
Herno, which was founded by Marenzi’s parents Giuseppe Marenzi and Alessandra Diana
in Lesa in Italy, in 1948, has built a reputation for manufacturing high-end outerwear for nearly 70 years. The brand started after World War II when Giuseppe lost his job working for an airplane manufacturer and joined a raincoat producer. He applied the

Major U.S. tech firms press Congress for internet surveillance reforms

Major U.S. tech firms press Congress for internet surveillance reformsFacebook (FB.O), Amazon (AMZN.O) and more than two dozen other U.S. technology companies pressed Congress on Friday to make changes to a broad internet surveillance law, saying they were necessary to improve privacy protections and increase government transparency. The request marks the first significant public effort by Silicon Valley to wade into what is expected to be a contentious debate later the year over the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, parts of which will expire on Dec. 31 unless Congress reauthorizes them. Of particular concern to the technology industry and privacy advocates is Section 702, which allows U.S. intelligence agencies to vacuum up vast amounts of communications from foreigners but also incidentally collects some data belonging to Americans that can be searched by analysts without a warrant.

G-III Licenses PVH for DKNY Men’s Wear Collections in the U.S. and Canada

G-III Apparel Group, Ltd. has entered into a multiyear license agreement with PVH Corp., under which PVH will design and distribute men’s wear for the DKNY brand in the U.S. and Canada. The license agreement includes DKNY Sport for Men, a new category for the brand; men’s sportswear; dress shirts; neckwear, and jeans.
The first collections will launch in spring 2018 and will be sold in department stores. Unlike the women’s DKNY collection, the men’s wear will not be exclusive to Macy’s.
G-III acquired Donna Karan International, parent company of DKNY, from LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton in December 2016.
The last time there was a DKNY Men’s collection in the market was for fall 2015. During the three seasons that DKNY was designed by Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne (spring 2016, fall 2016 and spring 2017), the designers focused on women’s apparel.
Morris Goldfarb, chairman and chief executive officer of G-III, said, “This collaboration is an important step in the continued growth of DKNY and a clear example of the go-forward strategy to heighten this iconic brand. PVH is a trusted and powerful partner and we look forward to our continued success together.”

Palace Opens First U.S. Store

In the middle of Palace’s new New York flagship there’s a bronze cherub-like sculpture holding a “P” and urinating into a P-shaped pool of water. On its Instagram account, Palace, a popular streetwear brand based in London, identified the structure as a fountain of youth and a temple of pea pea.
This type of humor is intrinsic to Palace Skateboards, which was founded by Lev Tanju in 2014, and the fountain is Instagram bait for the young crowd — people started to gather at 49 Howard Street on Thursday afternoon in anticipation of the store opening on Friday morning.

Company officials declined to comment about the store and its entry into the American market.
About an hour before the shop opened at 11 a.m., things were civilized and a sizable line of shoppers snaked down Mercer Street — at one point the crowd erupted in excitement when YouTube star Casey Neistat skateboarded down the block. Then the store opened and disorder ensued, so much so that the New York City Police Department had to close down the shop and turn away customers.

Rodd & Gunn CEO Discusses U.S. Rollout Plan

BROOKLYN — It’s been quite a learning curve for Mike Beagley since his brand decided to make the arduous journey from New Zealand to America six years ago.
But the chief executive officer of Rodd & Gunn has embraced that education and now the U.S. market represents close to one-fifth of the $ 100 million annual volume of the privately held men’s wear label.
“It’s been an amazing journey,” Beagley said. “And we’ve learned as much about what not to do as what to do. But we’ve really got momentum now.”
Beagley was in the States on Wednesday for the official celebration of the brand’s first East Coast store on Front Street in the red-hot DUMBO neighborhood in Brooklyn. The 3,200-square-foot store is only Rodd & Gunn’s second in the U.S., following a flagship that opened in Fashion Island in Newport Beach, Calif., in October. There is also a large shop-in-shop at Wingtip in San Francisco.
The brand operates 95 stores in its home market of New Zealand and Australia.
When Rodd & Gunn first decided to test the waters in the U.S., it entered as a wholesaler as it worked through the logistics of developing product for a market with different seasonality while figuring out U.S.

Intimissimi Expands in the U.S.

Intimissimi has big plans for the U.S.
The intimate apparel line, which is owned by the Calzedonia Group, opened its first U.S. store last year at the Garden State Plaza mall in Paramus, New Jersey, and introduced its second location at Roosevelt Field Mall on Long Island in March. This July it will open a Fifth Avenue flagship that will carry product from Intimissimi and its sister brand Calzedonia, which sells socks, hosiery and swimwear.
“The biggest challenge in the U.S. is to be perceived as unique,” said Marcello Veronesi, country manager for Intimissimi. “This is a huge country and every single player is here. We need to be perceived as different from the others.”
According to Veronesi, Intimissimi, which is based in Verona, Italy, is priced similarly to Victoria’s Secret but is mostly Italian made and more fashion forward — they deliver new fashion collections in store each week.

Women In The U.S. Don’t Live In A Dystopian Hellscape. Yet.

You’d have to be fairly clueless about the current political moment not to feel a shiver of recognition watching “The Handmaid’s Tale,” the new dystopian drama on Hulu.

Based on Margaret Atwood’s bestselling novel, the show debuted Wednesday after weeks of politically fueled anticipation. The timing is apt. The action takes place in Gilead, a fictional future America that has been taken over by a fundamentalist group of men who systematically strip away women’s rights.

That description might remind viewers of President Donald Trump’s first Monday in office when, surrounded by other men, he signed off on the global gag rule ― an anti-abortion order that restricts women’s reproductive rights around the world. Or, perhaps it also brings to mind Vice President Mike Pence, who chooses not to socialize alone with women who are not his wife.

Even Trump fanatics saw the connection, calling the show anti-Trump propaganda.

But there’s plenty of reason to believe American women are not headed toward the extreme fate faced by their fictional counterparts, whose highest purpose is to serve their husbands and bear children ― and if they can’t do the latter, so-called handmaids are forced to serve as surrogates.

That’s not us. The resistance in the U.S. is very much alive and well. And in the first 100 days of the Trump administration, it’s been remarkably effective. Indeed, just last week ― under pressure from activists energized by the election ― Fox News was forced to oust longtime star news host Bill O’Reilly, who was under fire for sexually harassing women.

Other executives at the network seem to be headed for the chopping block, as well. It’s a sign that even at one of the most conservative, pro-Trump companies in the country, women are finally being heard.

Paradoxically, O’Reilly’s ouster seemed to be made possible by Trump’s election. Putting a man in office who’d been accused of sexual assault by more than a dozen women didn’t scare anyone into silence ― it sparked a massive wave of outrage, energy and activism.

So much so that Trump’s first nominee for labor secretary, Andy Puzder, was forced to withdraw his name from consideration after decades-old domestic violence allegations resurfaced.

The day after the inauguration, millions of women took to the streets in dozens of major cities around the world wearing pink pussy hats and decrying the patriarchy. The marches were largely peaceful.

There’s more: The first shot at Obamacare repeal ― which would have left so many women without health care ― didn’t work. His anti-immigration orders have been stopped by the courts, with the help of a huge number of female immigration lawyers, as New York magazine noted.

Emily’s List, the nonprofit progressive group that helps women run for office, says it has seen an “unprecedented” level in interest since November.

What is happening now in the United States is actually real progress for women. 

It’s easy to forget that up until the 1990s, it was still legal for a husband to rape his wife. Until the 1970s, a woman accusing someone of raping her wasn’t considered a reliable witness in court (a situation eerily recalled in a terrible courtroom scene in a later episode of the Hulu show). And we haven’t even noted how women’s rights are curtailed around the world. 

Of course, there’s no doubt that putting a misogynist in the Oval Office is an enormous setback. There’s not a single woman in Trump’s inner circle, aside from his daughter, Ivanka Trump, and a spokeswoman, Kellyanne Conway, who’s been recently silenced. Only 23 percent of his White House staff is female.

But he’s hardly alone. There are only 21 women who run Fortune 500 companies out of 500. Congress is 81 percent male

Despite progress, women in the U.S. still have a frighteningly long way to go. 

The overwhelming majority of married women in this country still take their husband’s names, some without questioning why. And only recently, a Republican state representative from Oklahoma referred to women as “hosts” for fetuses.

More troubling? A majority of white women voters went for Trump, an echo of “Handmaid’s Tale,” too. In the book, elite white women ― the wives of the new political leaders ― seem to be true believers in the new world. Internalized sexism is a modern-day plague.

“The Handmaid’s Tale” came out in 1985, a perfect comment for those times, when Reagan-era conservatives were working feverishly to restore “traditional” values, i.e., restricting women’s reproductive rights, demonizing single mothers (particularly ones of color) and generally making it harder for women to choose to work outside the home. The Hulu show got the green light before Trump’s candidacy turned real.

Atwood, for her part, based the book on real historical examples.

“One of my rules was that I would not put any events into the book that had not already happened in what James Joyce called the nightmare of history,” Atwood explained in the New York Times this year. She explains that she’s grounded the book and its setting in 17th century puritanical American values (remember those witch trials).

One of Atwood’s favorite signs at the Toronto women’s march read “I can’t believe I’m still holding this fucking sign,” the 77-year-old author told The New Yorker.

When asked whether her book is a prediction for our future, Atwood offers hope and a warning.

“No, it isn’t a prediction, because predicting the future isn’t really possible: There are too many variables and unforeseen possibilities,” she writes.  “Let’s say it’s an antiprediction: If this future can be described in detail, maybe it won’t happen. But such wishful thinking cannot be depended on either.”

Progress does not happen in a straight line. Setbacks are inevitable. What’s critical is what comes next.

This Documentary Reveals A New Side Of The U.S. War In Afghanistan

The Green Berets were, in their own words, “America’s response to the most catastrophic terrorist attack on U.S. soil ever.” Sent to Afghanistan in the wake of Sept. 11, the Army Special Forces crew is now the subject of a documentary called “Legion of Brothers.” The Huffington Post has the exclusive trailer.

Dispatched on top-secret anti-Taliban missions, the Green Berets recount their harrowing mission. “We’re just trying to live,” one says, reflecting on the intensity.

Despite tactical errors and the lingering stresses of warfare, the soldiers’ early initiatives were successful enough to convince them Islamic terrorism was being curtailed for good. Sixteen year later, we see the toll the war in Afghanistan took on these men’s lives. Director Greg Barker, who has experience with the subject via his 2014 doc “Manhunt: The Inside Story of the Hunt for Bin Laden,” presents “Legion of Brothers” as a nonpartisan story about the human toils of combat. 

“Brothers” open in select theaters May 19 and premieres on VOD platforms June 26. Watch the trailer above.

Chow Tai Fook Expands U.S. Footprint With Hawaii DFS Store

HONG KONG–Expanding its U.S. footprint, Chinese jeweler Chow Tai Fook has teamed up with travel retailer DFS to open a boutique in Hawaii in the duty free retailer’s T Galleria.
The agreement was revealed Monday and when it opens its doors next month, the unit will be Chow Tai Fook’s second American store. Last November, the brand debuted in Macy’s in Manhattan. The 970-square foot store in Honolulu is well placed to capitalize on the Hawaiian capital’s popularity as a wedding and honeymoon destination, the two companies said.
“With over 50 years of experience in Hawaii, we are confident that T Galleria’s reputation as the world traveler’s preferred destination for luxurious shopping will attract many new customers to Chow Tai Fook,” Philippe Schaus, DFS Group chief executive officer, said.
A DFS spokeswoman said the Hawaii boutique was the only joint operation the two firms are planning for the time being.
Aside from the usual Chow Tai Fook assortment, the new store will carry some Hearts of Fire branded diamond and wedding jewelry. Chow Tai Fook bought the Boston-based jeweler in 2014. The Hong Kong-listed company is one of the largest jewelers in the world with over 2,300 points of sale across greater China, Singapore, the

U.S. Labor Department Accuses Google of ‘Significant’ Gender Pay Gap

U.S. Labor Department officials said they have found “systemic compensation disparities against women” at Google.

Investigators said they discovered the pay disparity during a routine probe to make certain that Google complied with federal law because the company is a government contractor, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Officials made the accusation Friday at a hearing before a federal administrative judge in San Francisco. The department is suing Google for more data on compensation to complete its probe.

Google immediately shot back in a statement to The Guardian, which first revealed the Labor Department accusations. The company said it “vehemently disagrees” with the charge, adding that the Labor Department failed to show how it reached its conclusion. 

Google boasted days earlier on Twitter that it had closed the gender pay gap not only in the U.S. — but globally as well.

Janet Herold, regional solicitor for the Labor Department, told The Guardian that officials have gathered “compelling evidence of very significant discrimination against women in the most common positions at Google’s California headquarters. She called discrimination against women at Google “quite extreme, even in this industry,” the newspaper reported. 

The tech industry has a reputation of being a boys club, and the Labor Department has moved against other tech corporations. It sued Oracle in January, claiming that it paid white men more than other employees for similar work, which Oracle denied.

U.S. Blocks Young Syrian ‘White Helmets’ Cinematographer From Oscars

The Department of Homeland Security at the last minute has decided to bar a young Syrian cinematographer from entering the U.S. to attend The Oscars Sunday. The civil-war documentary he risked his life to work on has been nominated for an award.

Khaled Khatib, 21, had obtained a visa and was due to fly to Los Angeles via Istanbul Saturday. But U.S. officials suddenly said they’d found unspecified “derogatory information” linked to Khatib, The Associated Press reported Saturday. Khatib was detained in Turkey, and he now needs a passport waiver to enter the U.S., which he will not be able to obtain, according to internal Trump administration documents seen by the AP. “Derogatory information” is a broad category that can be something serious to passport irregularities. It’s not clear why Khatib was detained in Turkey.

Khatib was a cinematographer on the 40-minute Netflix documentary “White Helmets,” which has been nominated for Best Documentary, Short Subject. It follows rescue workers for the Syrian Civil Defense White Helmets, who have saved tens of thousands of lives during the nation’s bloody civil war. The group was founded in 2012 after a Syrian Air Force attack on civilians. It was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2016. Khatib, who started filming the workers when he was just 16, is also a volunteer with the group. 

Some 120 White Helmets have been killed in recent years, including Khaled Omar, known as the “miracle baby rescuer” in Aleppo, after pulling an infant out alive from the rubble of the baby’s home in 2014. Omar was killed in an airstrike in 2016. 

“White Helmets” director Orlando von Einsiedel had made a plea to the U.S. to allow those who had worked on and been featured in the film to attend the Oscars. The experience would not only be rewarding for them, he said, but with the world “so divided we could all learn from the White Helmets’ message od compassion and dignity.” After a court halted President Donald Trump’s travel ban, the filmmakers revived plans to bring Khatib and White Helmets leader Raed Saleh to Los Angeles.

Saleh will also not be attending now because of the demand of work in Syria.

Iranian filmmaker Asghar Farhadi, whose movie “The Salesman” is up for Best Foreign Language Film, said last month that he would not attend the awards ceremony because of Trump’s controversial ban.

But Farhadi and the directors of the other four movies in the foreign language category issued an angry statement on Friday blasting America’s “climate of fanaticism and nationalism.” It’s unlikely the directors yet had word that Khatib would not be allowed to attend the Oscars.

“The fear generated by dividing us into genders, colors, religions and sexualities as a means to justify violence destroys the things that we depend on — not only as artists but as humans: the diversity of cultures, the chance to be enriched by something seemingly ‘foreign’ and the belief that human encounters can change us for the better,” their statement reads

“These divisive walls prevent people from experiencing something simple but fundamental: from discovering that we are all not so different.”

Regardless of “who wins the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film on Sunday, we refuse to think in terms of borders,” they wrote. “We believe there is no best country, best gender, best religion or best color. We want this award to stand as a symbol of the unity between nations and the freedom of the arts. Human rights are not something you have to apply for. They simply exist — for everybody.”

Khatib was looking forward to traveling to the Oscars. “If we win this award, it will show people across Syria that people around the world support them,” he said when he announced his plans to attend this month. “It will give courage to every volunteer who wakes up every morning to run towards bombs.” 

“If I cannot enter the U.S., I will not give up,” he added. “We know that we have many friends in the U.S., that there are people that share our humanitarian values. I look forward to meeting them all one day.”

How Many Terrorist Attacks in the U.S. Have Been Carried Out by Immigrants from the 7 Banned Muslim Countries?

On Friday, President Donald Trump signed a controversial executive order that suspended entry of all refugees to the United States for 120 days, barred Syrian refugees indefinitely, and blocked entry into the U.S. for 90 days for citizens of seven predominantly Muslim countries: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen.

The ban has sparked outrage, fear and protests across America and the globe. Some have also called into question its legality, pointing to the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, which banned all discrimination against immigrants on the basis of national origin. On Saturday, federal judges in New York and Boston barred officials from deporting some refugees who found themselves affected by Trump’s order in the midst of traveling.

According to the order as supplied by the White House, the ban aims to “protect the American people from terrorist attacks by foreign nationals admitted to the United States.”

“Numerous foreign-born individuals have been convicted or implicated in terrorism-related crimes since September 11, 2001,” the order states. “The United States must be vigilant during the visa-issuance process to ensure that those approved for admission do not intend to harm Americans and that they have no ties to terrorism.”

According to the order, a waiver may be granted on a case-by-case basis by both the Department of State and the Department of Homeland Security and may be granted for those who are “a religious minority in his country of nationality facing religious persecution” as long as they don’t pose a security risk to the U.S. Before signing his executive order, Trump told the Christian Broadcasting Network  that Christian refugees from Syria should be given priority treatment when entering the U.S. over Muslims.

According to the Washington Post and Bloomberg, Trump’s ban did not include any of the Muslim-majority countries where the Trump Organization — which is now being run by his sons — holds business interests. Those countries reportedly include Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Turkey, the U.A.E. and Azerbaijan.

Here’s a look back at the major terrorist attacks that have taken place on U.S. soil since 9/11, including the nationalities of the perpetrator, or perpetrators.

Of this list, zero fatal attacks were carried out by immigrants from the seven Muslim-majority countries targeted by the ban. Two attacks were carried out by individuals with ties to the seven countries: the 2006 UNC SUV attack, and the 2016 Ohio State University attack. Neither of those plots resulted in American deaths.

9/11 attacks:

On Sept. 11, 2001, 19 militants hijacked four commercial airlines to carry out terrorist attacks on the U.S. that killed 2,996 people and wounded more than 6,000 others. The 19 men were associated with al-Qaeda, a decentralized terrorist network, at the time led by Osama bin Laden.

Of the 19 hijackers, 15 were from Saudi Arabia, two from the United Arab Emirates, one from Egypt and one from Lebanon.

2001 anthrax attacks:

Anonymous letters laced with deadly anthrax spores began arriving at media companies and congressional offices, killing five people and infecting 17 others. The FBI concluded Bruce Ivins, a top biodefense researcher, was the key suspect for the attacks, although he was never charged with any crime. Ivins was American.

2002 D.C. sniper attacks:

Over the course of three weeks in 2002, John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo killed 10 people and critically injured three others in Washington D.C., Baltimore, and Virginia.

Muhammad was born as John Allen Williams in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Malvo is from Jamaica.

2006 UNC SUV attack:

Mohammed Reza Taheri-aza intentionally rammed into people on the UNC Chapel Hill campus. Nine people were injured, none seriously. Taheri-aza was reportedly an Iranian-born U.S. citizen.

Snoopy and Belle Exhibit Returns to U.S. With Rachel Zoe, Jenna Dewan Tatum and Colleen Atwood Designs

DOG’S DAY: Snoopy and Belle are back on the fashion circuit, and this time they’re taking it to the masses with a retail bent. The “Snoopy & Belle in Fashion” project, which debuted at the Louvre in 1984 with nearly four dozen outfits designed by everyone from Karl Lagerfeld to Gianni Versace, has been on a nonstop worldwide museum tour ever since. Its last iteration celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2014 with new designers such as Isaac Mizrahi and Rodarte coming into the mix, and others such as Diane von Furstenberg and Betsey Johnson, who were part of the original exhibit, creating a second set of costumes.

Brazil’s Fabiana Milazzo Plans U.S. Debut With Melrose Place Store

Brazilian designer Fabiana Milazzo is introducing her blend of handcrafted femininity and responsible entrepreneurship to the U.S. market via her new store in Los Angeles.
Known for her designs that are enhanced by artisanal embroidery, macramé, crochet and beading, she flips the script for what is considered formal and casual. A black gown has a relaxed feel with netlike sleeves and corded rope framing a high slit, whereas a sweatshirt stitched from two different shades of blue sparkles with intricately sewn beads on the front.
“I like to mix elements,” she said through an interpreter, her husband Eduardo Carvalho. “I make the party dresses less formal and enrich the casualwear.”
Readying to unveil her first Stateside sales point on Feb. 22 in a 1,300-square-foot space on Melrose Place as the recession in her country deepens, Milazzo hopes the U.S. grows to become the biggest market for her $ 5 million company. She is a seasoned designer in Brazil, having opened two stores and presented her collections at São Paulo Fashion Week since starting her namesake business in 2000. From the southeastern city of Uberlândia, Brazil, which serves as her base for design and manufacturing, she also sells to 90 retailers within the country as

Oscar de la Renta To Be Featured on U.S. Postal Stamps

Oscar de la Renta will be part of the lineup for the U.S. Postal Service’s series of stamps for 2017.
Mary-Anne Penner, director for stamp services at the U.S. Postal Service, said, “The new year is shaping up to be exceptional as the Postal Service continues to produce stamps that celebrate the people, events and cultural milestones that are unique to the history of our great nation.” She described the new stamps as part of a showcase of “miniature works of art to help continue telling America’s story.”
De la Renta is widely known for dressing America’s first ladies and celebrities. He passed away in 2014 and was one of the world’s leading fashion designers for more than 50 years.
For the postal series, the pane of 11 stamps features a black-and-white portrait of the designer — by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin — and 10 details from several of his famous gowns. Art director Derry Noyes designed the stamps, the U.S. Postal Service said.

Joseph Janus Promoted to WeSC Global CEO on Growth of U.S. Business

WeSC has realigned its executive team, promoting Joseph Janus to group chief executive officer on the heels of the streetwear brand’s U.S. growth as it turns to scaling in Europe.
WeSC, which stands for We are the Superlative Conspiracy, previously had Janus in the ceo role for WeSC America based out of the New York office. Janus succeeds Tony Westler in his new role.
The change is a reflection of a few factors, beginning with the U.S. business now representing more than 40 percent of the Swedish company’s overall sales, up from about 20 percent two years ago.
“We made a decision to elevate our product three years ago,” Janus said. “WeSC started off as a skateboard clothing brand and we’ve been really focused the last three years on making it a Swedish lifestyle brand.”
That began with the build-out of full collections versus launching T-shirts and hoodies each season, which has helped it get into new doors. The strategy has recently been applied in Sweden with a contemporary offering that’s helped get the brand into doors such as Nordiska Kompaniet. Retailers such as Galeries Lafayette is another example of where Janus would like the brand to go.
“Those are the elevated accounts I want

Here’s Some Surprisingly Positive News About Marriage In The U.S.

Here’s some heartening news about marriage: The U.S. divorce rate fell for the third consecutive year in 2015, dropping to the lowest it’s been in 40 years, according to a report based on Census data released Thursday.

The divorce rate ― represented as the number of divorces per 1,000 married women aged 15 and older ― was 16.9 divorces per 1,000 married women in 2015, a slight dip from the divorce rate of 17.6 in 2014. The rate is down 25 percent from 1980, according to the report, which was released by Bowling Green State University’s National Center for Marriage and Family Research.

“We may have reached the low point in the decline in marriage,” Susan L. Brown, a co-director at the center, told The Huffington Post. “Over the past few years, there has not been a further retreat from marriage among the US population.” 

What’s more, marriage rates remain stable, with 32.3 marriages for every 1,000 unmarried women, up from 31.9 in 2014. 

Though divorce rates have fallen among young people (35 and under), they’ve increased for middle-aged and older people, Brown said. 

“Many of these Baby Boomers experienced the divorce revolution of the 1970s as young adults and then got remarried,” she told HuffPost. “The gray divorce rate for those in a remarriage is 2.5 times higher than for those in a first marriage.”

Meanwhile, younger generations are marrying later in life and being more selective in the process of finding a partner, she said. 

“Young adults who get married tend to do so at later ages and they enjoy greater economic resources and they’re more likely to be college educated than their counterparts a generation ago,” she said. “Both of these factors are protective against divorce.” 

Of course, the divorce rate varies by state: Washington, D.C. has the highest divorce rate, with nearly 30 marriages per 1,000 ending in divorce, followed by Wyoming (27.9), Nevada (25.7) and Arkansas (25.3)

Hawaii has the lowest divorce rate, with only 11 marriages per 1,000 ending in divorce, followed by Wisconsin, Rhode Island, Delaware, which were all under 13.

Steve Aoki Launches Dim Mak Collection In the U.S.

Steve Aoki, DJ and owner of Dim Mak records, is bringing his high-end men’s line, also named Dim Mak (which means “the touch of death” in Chinese) to the U.S.
Aoki produced and sold T-shirts and hoodies under the Dim Mak label from 2006 to 2011 but always wanted to create a luxury lifestyle collection. In 2014 he had the opportunity to do that by partnering with Parco, a Japanese mall operator, to produce and distribute the line.
Aoki said that because of the collection’s success in Japan — it had high sell-through rates at retailers including Opening Ceremony and Youth by United Arrows — he believes it’s time to make the brand available in the U.S.
“I’ve been involved in building different lines for a long time and know how difficult it is to do it in America,” said Aoki. “I’m just glad we had the wherewithal to start in Japan, see what was working and what wasn’t working and take the line out here.”
According to Aoki, the assortment has an American edge with Japanese pride. It’s made and designed in Japan and features streetwear basics created with Japanese textiles, interesting graphics and updated silhouettes. The line ranges from around $ 87 for a

21st Century U.S. Military Manuals: Physical Fitness Training FM 21-20 – Exercise, Conditioning, Muscle Groups (Value-Added Professional Format Series)


Professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction, the Physical Fitness Training Field Manual (FM 21-20) covers physical fitness and exercise in the military. The preface states: “On 5 July 1950, U.S. troops, who were unprepared for the physical demands of war, were sent to battle. The early days of the Korean war were nothing short of disastrous, as U.S. soldiers were routed by a poorly equipped, but well-trained, North Korean People’s Army. As American soldiers withdrew, they left behind wounded comrades and valuable equipment their training had not adequately prepared them to carry heavy loads. The costly lessons learned by Task Force Smith in Korea are as important today as ever. If we fail to prepare our soldiers for their physically demanding wartime tasks, we are guilty of paying lip service to the principle of “Train as you fight.” Our physical training programs must do more for our soldiers than just get them ready for the semiannual Army Physical Fitness Test (APFT). FM 21 -20 is directed at leaders who plan and conduct physical fitness training. It provides guidelines for developing programs which will improve and maintain physical fitness levels for all Army personnel. These programs will help leaders prepare their soldiers to meet the physical demands of war. This manual can also be used as a source book by all soldiers. The benefits to be derived from a good physical fitness program are many. It can reduce the number of soldiers on profile and sick call, invigorate training, and enhance productivity and mental alertness. A good physical fitness program also promotes team cohesion and combat survivability. It will improve soldiers’ combat readiness.”Contents include:* Cardiorespiratory Fitness* Muscular Endurance and Strength* Beginning Exercise Program (exercise descriptions)* Advanced Exercise Program (exercise descriptions)* Flexibility* Body Composition* Nutrition and Fitness* Circuit Training and Exercise Drills* Obstacle

Half of teenagers in the United States feel addicted to their mobile phones, with most checking the devices at least every hour and feeling pressured to respond immediately to messages, a survey released on Tuesday found. The majority of parents concurred, with 59 percent of those with children between ages 12 and 18 saying their kids cannot give up their phones, according to a poll of 1,240 parents and children by Common Sense Media. The findings from the nonprofit group, which focuses on the effects of media and technology on children, highlighted the tension such close ties to devices can cause, with it disrupting driving, homework and other time together.

Tmall Promotion Underscores Heightened Competition in China For U.S. Brands

DEALS, DEALS, DEALS: Tmall.com created an online frenzy with its latest blowout featuring more than 1,000 fashion brands.
The apparel promotion, held twice a year — one for spring and another for fall — this time around boasts a number of brands exclusive to Tmall.com, including Timberland, Decathlon and Zara.
The retailer sweetened the deal to customers with a same-day shipping option, aided by participating stores that will send items purchased online to a customer’s home.
It’s part of a larger strategy to bridge the online and off-line worlds, said a spokeswoman with Tmall.com parent Alibaba Group.
“That’s a very important strategy for Alibaba Group,” the spokeswoman said. “You have a lot of shoppers sometimes when they order online, they want to go in stores and get a sense of the look and feel of something.”
So customers shopping in-store, can make a purchase online with the scan of a QR code or schedule to have product seen in-store delivered to their homes. The option is available in more than 10 cities.
It’s another point of distinction for the online retailer as competition remains fierce to bring U.S. brands to the Chinese consumer.
The sale — running through Wednesday — comes on the heels of Alibaba’s announcement this

Strellson to Expand Reach in Canada, U.S.

TORONTO, Canada — After opening a North American flagship in Toronto in 2012, Strellson, the upscale Swiss men’s wear brand, is planning a major expansion in Canada and the U.S. in a move designed to feed the Millennial businessman’s hunger for affordable work attire.
Over the next four years, the label, which targets 25- to 40-year-old professionals, will open eight to 10 freestanding stores across Canada, including one in Vancouver this fall, followed by 2016 openings in Ottawa’s Rideau Center and Toronto’s Yorkdale Shopping Center.
Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Montreal are also on the rollout list, according to Mark Altow, president of Strellson North America. The stores will be 1,800-2,000 square feet, he said, but the company is not ready to reveal the exact locations.
Strellson’s ongoing retail partnership with Canadian department store Hudson’s Bay Co. will change. The retailer currently operates 19 shops-in-shop for Strellson in its HBC stores, a number that will rise to 25, Altow said.
“Frankly, we were surprised by the numbers we’ve seen within the [Hudson’s] Bay [Co. stores],” said Altow. “A year ago, for example, we opened in the Bay at Yorkdale. We thought we would see a 30 to 40 percent increase in revenue. But in one year,

Humans: AMC’s Sci-fi Pilot U.S. Debut Magnifique!

Do we really need another sci-fi TV show about humanoid beings you may fairly ask? For doesn’t it seem like yesterday when Edward James Olmos acted in Battlestar Galactica before Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.? Initially I was skeptical about Humans. Now I’m not.

Humans is the product of a joint British and American (AMC) sci-fi series that had a recent U.S. launch on Sunday June 28, 2015, whereas U.K. viewers had an earlier launch. Inspired by the award winning Swedish sci-fi TV drama titled Atka manniskor (Real Humans), the pilot of Humans was written by British writers Sam Vincent and Jonathan Brackley. Besides that, the two are also the creators of the new AMC sci-fi TV series.

By making it as more relatable as possible by not having the story set in some far off future as usual sci-fi, Humans begins in the here and now. And while story location is based in the U.K., the premiere episode does not fail to capture. Though patience is required from the jump. That is, if one is simply not used to leisurely paced storytelling which is the hallmark of AMC dramas.

The story begins in London, just after Joe Hawkins (Tom Goodman-Hill) had breakfast with his three children, teenage daughter Mattie, teenage son Toby, and youngest daughter Sophie. It’s then that he receives a text from his wife Laura (Katherine Parkinson), a lawyer, reading that her case is running over to which she’ll arrive home the next day. Now feeling glum before telling the three children the recent news, to attempt to uplift his spirit and theirs, he tells his daughter Sophie that they’re going shopping. And no it’s not to get the newest breakthrough smartphone.

In the world of the sci-fi film Blade Runner, humanoid machines are called Replicants. Also called skin-jobs, nicknamed by Capt. Bryant, commander of the Los Angeles Police unit of Blade Runner cops who terminates runaway Replicants in the year 2019. And in the world of the sci-fi TV show Battlestar Galactica, humanoid machines are called Cylons, also called skin-jobs borrowed from Blade Runner, yet different from the other metallic battle-bot Centurions. Now, in the world of Humans, humanoid machines are called synths, short for synthetic. Synths are programmed to serve mankind, just like both Replicants and Cylons were originally intended.

“What if she’s not pretty? Can we change her if she’s not pretty?” asks the little girl Sophie Hawkins enthusiastically, before the salesman unveils the plastic synth shroud. Enter Anita, which the Hawkins later agreed to name her, all five-foot nine with a gracefully slender frame, played by former model and drama school trained British actress Gemma Chan. And, of course she’s pretty. For one doesn’t buy expensive luxury tech if it’s not also easy on the eyes.

“This is the best thing you’ll do for your family,” says the salesman before releasing her to Joe Hawkins. For if by chance one is not satisfied after purchasing a synth, one may return it within 30 days, no questions asked, which is explained to Joe Hawkins. Next, after all formalities have been established, the female synth reaches to shake Joe Hawkins hand as she says pleasantly, “Hello Joe, I’m now securely bonded to you as my primary user.” Which shortly afterwards, the irises of her eyes gleam to an iridescent deep green.

Finally the next day, Laura Hawkins arrives. And from there, Anita, who represents the latest achievement of bioengineered beings, quickly changes the Hawkins family dynamic. Laura takes an immediate dislike to Anita, feeling that her role as a wife and mother is now in jeopardy. Especially when she later sees Anita is reading a bedtime story to Sophie. “I’ll take over now, Anita,” says Laura. “No! I want her to do it!” exclaims Sophie, who is enthralled with Anita. To which Laura adds, “Reading to you is Mummy’s job.” “But she doesn’t rush,” Sophie replies. Son Toby, sees Anita as one hot chick. While Joe, as husband and father, sees Anita as a remedy to save both marriage and family life. For during an argument with his wife, he says, “I didn’t buy Anita to replace you. I bought her to get you back.” Whereas rebellious Mattie, also sees Anita as a threat. Although bright, she explains to her parents about her underperforming at school, saying, “I could be anything I want, right? What about a doctor? That would take me seven years, but by then you’ll be able to turn any old synth into a brain surgeon in seconds.” Given that scene, the pilot episode of Humans couldn’t have come at a better time. Such as the recent July/August 2015 issue of The Atlantic with the cover story titled, “Technology will soon erase millions of jobs. Could that be a good thing? – The End of Work.”

Also later, the story flashes back to a scene taking place five weeks earlier in the woods. A group of synths under the care of a young man named Leo (Colin Morgan) begin to set up camp. The synth later to be known as Anita, is among them. Then Leo and a black synth called Max (Ivanno Jeremiah) decide to leave the others to go after supplies. Yet upon their return, they discover their synths are being stolen by men in a van as the two attempt to chase. And thus begins Leo’s odyssey, who begins a desperate search for his family of synths.

Synths are involved in all manners of service, from standard domestic such as Anita to the Hawkins family, as a caretaker like the synth Odi to Dr. George Millican (William Hurt), formerly a brilliant engineer from the beginnings of the synth project, to being also sex workers. For in a later scene, Leo visits a synth brothel to check on the blonde synth Niska, who hates her work. Already knowing that, he vows he would return to come for her but needs more time, and telling her that she would be safer where she is for now.

Meanwhile, another black synth named Fred (Sope Dirisu) while working as a laborer at an apple orchard, fails to make the rendezvous with Leo and Max. For Fred is captured and given to Professor Edwin Hobb, whose mentor was the creator of synths, a man named David Elster. Hobb is the first to discover something unusual about Fred, now temporarily incapacitated. For Hobb discovers that Fred is showing self-awareness, seeing that as he calls a singularity, and concludes other synths may be as well, like those of Leo’s. Hobb, as he speaks to a colleague while looking at Fred in fascination, sees also the possibility of danger. Now recognizing the possibility that his former mentor gave other synths consciousness, and that the world is becoming ever more dependent on synth labor, he then asks, “Do you think they would still want to be slaves?”

Then also there’s another danger, touched upon in a recent on-line June 25, 2015 article by Katharine Trendacosta for io9, titled, “In AMC’s New Android Show Humans, People Are the Real Monsters.” For within, the actor Tom Goodman-Hill states, “Because the question is not just whether the synths are sentient and what sort of people might they become, it’s more about the humans not realizing how inhuman they can be. And how unlikable they can be without even trying.” To which fellow actor Katherine Parkinson adds, “That’s sort of the human condition full stop. We cause the damage and then worry about it afterwards.”

Such a sentiment, is somewhat similar to a scene from Battlestar Galactica the mini-series. Near the beginning of the pilot episode, there’s a decommissioning ceremony on the starboard hangar bay, as Commander William Adama (Edward James Olmos) is giving a speech. For within the speech, he says, “We decided to play God, create life (Cylons). When that life turned against us, we comforted ourselves in the knowledge that it really wasn’t our fault, not really. You cannot play God, then wash your hands of the things that you’ve created.”

The pilot episode of Humans premiered both solid acting and story, and from there onward, can only get better.
