Actor Zachary Levi graces the cover of Entertainment Weekly in its Comic-Con issue. In the magazine, Levi tells what fans can expect from his role as DC Comics superhero Shazam, reports CNET.

By Peter Goffin GTA Noor Javed News reporter Fri., July 7, 2017 A wall of pictures and cryptic messages that the mayor of Whitchurch-Stouffville posted on the wall of his office washroom has been revealed, but dozens of those whose faces are on display — local residents, former employees and politicians — say they are disturbed, “creeped out” and, in some cases, concerned for their safety. It also has left them wondering what it all means. “It’s absolutely creepy,” said Samantha Farrow, a longtime resident. “I was horrified when I saw my picture. I couldn’t believe my picture was on the bathroom wall in the mayor’s office,” said Farrow, who said she runs her family business in town and has no personal dealings with the mayor. “The fact that he put so much effort into finding my picture on Facebook, printing it out and putting it on the wall is really unsettling.” The … [Read more...] about Here’s who’s on Stouffville mayor’s ‘creepy’ washroom wall of photos
By Kim Tong-Hyung The Associated Press Sat., June 2, 2018 SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA—North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is known for pushing the envelope with threats and bluster as he seeks to leverage his nuclear weapons program into security and economic benefits for his country. But lately he’s gained notoriety for his envelopes alone. U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday declared that his on-and-off summit with Kim was on again. The announcement came after Trump hosted a senior North Korean envoy at the White House and he delivered a personal letter from Kim that was inside a white envelope nearly as large as a folded newspaper. Trump has not yet revealed what was written in the letter, but he sure seemed happy to get it. A photo showed a grinning Trump holding up the envelope alongside Kim Yong Chol, the most senior North Korean to visit the White House in 18 years, as they posed in the Oval Office in front of a portrait of Thomas Jefferson. The photo made … [Read more...] about Kim Jong Un’s letter to Trump has people wondering: why so big?
source AMC AMC’s “The Terror” is an amazing limited series starring some familiar faces from “Game of Thrones” and “Mad Men.” The historical-fiction series is a sci-fi horror twist on the stories of real people who went on an expedition to the Arctic and never returned. Business Insider spoke to creator and showrunner David Kajganich, who has been attached to the project since before the novel it’s based on came out in 2007. Before David Kajganich came to Los Angeles to start screenwriting, he worked as a wilderness instructor and guide. Years later, that led him to his first job running a TV show: AMC’s brilliant and haunting limited series, “The Terror,” which aired its finale Monday night. The series, which premiered on March 26, is based on the 2007 Dan Simmons novel of the same name. Both are fictionalized accounts of Sir John … [Read more...] about The creator of AMC’s ‘The Terror’ describes his 10-year journey to make the series, and how it explores ‘the consequences of toxic masculinity’
By Michael Lewis Bloomberg View Mon., Feb. 19, 2018 Back when he was president, Barack Obama told me that only two people treated any interaction with him as a zero-sum game. One was Vladimir Putin, the other congressional Republicans. Both behaved as if there was no such thing as a win-win situation: Any gain for Obama was a loss for them, and any gain for them must also entail a loss for Obama. The moment that the Russian president or congressional Republicans saw he wanted something, they went to work trying to keep him from getting it — even if it was something they might otherwise have approved of. Approaching any aspect of life as a zero-sum game has obvious practical costs: Deals that leave some people better off without making anyone else worse off suddenly don’t get done, because making some people better off now, by definition, makes other people worse off. It also comes with some psychological side effects. It cripples your imagination. It … [Read more...] about Looking for Donald Trump in all the wrong places
