FIFA 20 Volta: 6 Things You Need to Know

With FIFA 20 comes a brand new game mode – Volta – an amalgamation of the gone-but-not-forgotten FIFA Street, and the more recent soap opera-like offering of The Journey. Within Volta are numerous modes – a six hour story campaign, an online league system with promotion and relegation, and standard kick-off modes.

It’s been in development for 2 years, having been considered too big an undertaking for an annual cycle and, according to creative director Matt Prior, “aims to engage with the core FIFA audience, but break down the barriers to casuals.” If it is going to manage that feat, here are things that may well see Volta make a big impact in FIFA 20.

Much More FIFA than Street

HERE COMES THE BRIDE: While seemingly every detail from Joe Jonas and Sophie Turner’s second wedding in France has leaked out on social media, one key image has been missing: that of the dress worn by the “Game of Thrones” star for the official ceremony.
Nicolas Ghesquière, artistic director of women’s collections at Louis Vuitton, on Thursday posted an image of the bride, a Louis Vuitton brand ambassador, with the caption: “Absolut beauty @sophiet.” The gown made of flower-embroidered tulle and silk gazar required more than 350 hours to assemble, the house said.

For Turner’s dress, more than 10 embroiderers worked for a total of 1,050 hours on the 14 meters of tulle, covered with a digitally-designed pattern of more

What You Need to Know Before DC’s Event Leviathan

Summer days are here again, and longtime comic book fans know what that means: it’s event time! DC Comics has had a long tradition of setting up universe-sweeping events that often have long term effects on the heroes and villains that are part of them.

This summer marks the start of a huge event with Lex Luthor at the forefront called the Year of the Villain. Part of that far-reaching storyline is helmed by Brian Michael Bendis and the Superman story he’s been setting up in Action Comics all year, Event Leviathan. Someone is taking out all the clandestine organizations in Metropolis and beyond, and no one knows who or why. Rumors swirl that “Leviathan” is behind the attacks, and they’re just getting started.

Burberry Teams With U.K. Charity Smart Works to Dress Women in Need

GET SMART: Burberry is marking International Women’s Day by spreading the love, and the checks and the trench coats, to women in need of work wardrobes. Since 2013, the brand has been teaming with the British women’s charity Smart Works, which offers new, donated clothing and styling advice to women in need who are trying to get back into the workforce. Burberry has always donated clothing to Smart Works, but this year for the first time it invited seven women from the program into its London showrooms for a styling session and the opportunity to pick out their capsule work wardrobes.
The clients are at stage two of the Smart Works program, meaning they have secured employment and will need clothing to wear to their new jobs, ahead of their first pay checks. Half of Smart Works’ clients are from an ethnic minority, are long-term unemployed and have been unsuccessful with a large number of job applications. Smart Works said the majority of women it helps eventually secure full employment and that it aims to dress 3,500 women this year in the U.K.

9 Key Quotes from Meghan Markle That Reveal Everything You Need to Know About the Duchess

Years before Meghan Markle married Prince Harry, she was an actress struggling to find self-confidence as she went after her Hollywood dreams. Meghan says it wasn’t until a casting director told her, “You are enough,” that she started to believe it — and it’s a message she’s been sharing ever since.


“I was in my early 20s, still figuring so much out, and trying to find my value in an industry that judges you on everything that you’re not versus everything that you are. Not thin enough, not pretty enough, not ethnic enough, while also being too thin, too ethnic, too pretty the very next day.”

from Darling Magazine‘s essay, “It’s All Enough”


“You can be a woman who wants to look good and still stand up for the equality of women.”

from her keynote speech at the Create & Cultivate conference 2016


“That five pounds lost won’t make you happier, that more makeup won’t make you prettier, that the now iconic saying from Jerry Maguire — ‘You complete me’ — frankly, isn’t true. You are complete with or without a partner. You are enough just as you are.”

from The Tig


“I’m still the same person that I am, and I’ve never defined myself by my relationship.”

from her Vanity Fair cover in September 2017


“Make a choice: continue living your life feeling muddled in this abyss of self-misunderstanding, or you find your identity independent of it.”

from Elle UK essay, “I’m More Than an Other”


“I’ve never wanted to be a lady who lunches — I’ve always wanted to be a woman who works. And this type of work is what feeds my soul and fuels my purpose.”

from Elle UK essay, “With Fame Comes Opportunity, But Also A Responsibility”


“You draw your own box. You introduce yourself as who you are … You create the identity you want for yourself.”

from Elle UK essay, “I’m More Than an Other”


“Don’t give it five minutes if you’re not going to give it five years.”

from her keynote speech at the Create & Cultivate conference 2016


“We just need to be kinder to ourselves. If we treated ourselves the way we treated our best friend, can you imagine how much better off we would be? … Yes, you can have questions and self-doubt, that’s going to come up, that’s human.”

from an interview with BT TV

Chip and Joanna Gaines Help Pay Off the Mortgage of a Fixer Upper Family in Need

Chip and Joanna Gaines are taking a very special renovation one big step further.

On Tuesday’s episode of Fixer Upper, the HGTV stars teamed up with former footballer Tim Tebow to design an ADA-compliant home for Melissa and Jody Copp and their two sons, Calan, 9, and Lawson, 5, who are both wheelchair users. Tebow’s foundation connected the family with the Gaineses, and Make-a-Wish stepped in to surprise the boys with the ultimate backyard, but Chip and Jo wanted to take it one step further.

“To me, this picture is worth a thousand words—a thousand encouragements—a thousand happy moments,” Chip wrote alongside an Instagram photo of him with the boys. “BUT, there’s more work to do. Let’s rally together to pay off the Copp family’s mortgage.”

Followers of the famous couple — who have a fifth baby on the way joining Drake, 12, Ella, 11, Duke, 9, and Emmie Kay, 7 — were quick to take action. Just days later, Chip posted another sweet shot of the Copps with the caption, “Y’all.. we did it! The Copp family’s mortgage has been paid in full.”

In addition to helping lift the financial burden, the Gaineses designed a plethora of welcoming touches in their new abode, like desks for the boys to do their homework, a wall of toys in each of their bedrooms, and a generous-sized kitchen for the whole family to gather together.

“Thanks for teaming up with us to get this thing finished!” Chip continued. “Their lives are forever changed because of your generosity.”

The contractor-designer duo recently raised funds for another children’s group close to their hearts. Together they designed a dining room for the Target House at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital — the same cause for which Chip shaved off his signature long locks.

“Gratitude is so important and there is real value in maintaining that perspective in the peaks and in the valleys of life,” Joanna said in December of their charitable work. “We have so much to be grateful for, and I think anytime you have a chance to take a step back and really reflect on that, you find yourself wanting to bless those who may be going through a tough time in whatever way you can.”

Opinion: The X-Men Need Jean Grey Back

Warning: this article contains spoilers for Phoenix Resurrection: The Return of Jean Grey #1!

No major superhero character stays dead forever, but Jean Grey sure knows how to cling to the afterlife longer than most. 14 years after being killed by Fake Magneto (long story) in New X-Men #150, Jean is finally making her return in the miniseries Phoenix Resurrection: The Return of Jean Grey. That book is set to pave the way for a new ongoing series called X-Men Red in February, with Jean leading a brand new team. Clearly, Jean’s return is a big deal for the X-Men franchise, as well it should be. She couldn’t be coming back to life at a better time. After a year where Marvel has tried and failed to reinvigorate the struggling X-Men comics, Jean Grey’s return may be just the thing to finally put the franchise back on track.

New York Cares and The Fashion Foundation Help New Yorkers in Need

‘TIS THE SEASON: More than halfway to its goal of collecting 125,000 donated coats, this year’s annual New York Cares Coat Drive has less than a week to go.
New Yorkers can drop off coats at multiple locations including the group’s West 31st Street warehouse, any New York Police Department precinct, all Queens library branches and Grand Central Terminal or Penn Station through Dec. 31. Those who don’t have jackets to give can text “coat” to 41444 to donate money that will be used by the nonprofit to buy and deliver coats. The city has at least 1.7 million people living below the poverty line including 60,000 who are without permanent housing, according to a New York Cares spokeswoman.
The group has collected and donated 1.8 million coats to New Yorkers in need over the past 29 years. This year’s requests from shelters, social service agencies and schools is an increase compared to last year’s tally of 109,000 coats.
Another local group, The Fashion Foundation, recently wrapped up another charitable initiative. Founder Amanda Munz helped to brighten the holidays for 100 students in three different Brooklyn schools by arranging for each of them to receive a complementary gift-laden backpack.
