PROMOTION

While the sporting industry is making strides toward equality, it’s safe to say that there is still a long way to go. This fact is at the forefront of our minds as the Matildas take to France to represent Australia at the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019™. 

 

In an effort to ensure the world of sport continues to make positive progress and to spark a national conversation about gender equality, Optus Sport is giving all Australian school kids access to Optus Sport for the duration of the quadrennial football tournament at no charge, an initiative which will give women’s sport greater visibility for the next generation.

“I think it is such an amazing initiative,” says Georgia Yeoman-Dale, an Optus Sport expert who currently plays for the Western Sydney Wanderers. 25-year-old Yeoman-Dale has represented Australia with the Matildas a total of five times. 

 

“There are already so many things stacked against young girls aspiring to be professional footballers,” she adds. “But the inspiration they can gain through watching their idols playing on the biggest stage will go a long way to helping them live their dreams.”

 

 

By broadcasting all games live and on demand, and allowing school students to tune in to the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2019™ at no charge, Optus is leading by example and allowing perceptions to be challenged. 

 

While Yeoman-Dale admits that there has been a considerable increase in financial backing from the Football Federation Australia, as well as the W-League clubs, the pathways available to women are still not where they need to be. 

 

“My first W-League season I wasn’t paid a cent, now there is minimum wage in the W-League,” she confesses, before adding that “as a female footballer, you can’t train to the capacity you want to train because either you don’t have the facilities, or you need to work to make a living.” 

 

Join the conversation, support the Matildas, and encourage those who are able to make the most of Optus’s noteworthy initiate to do so, as conversations need to be had, opinions need to change and dreams need to be discovered by the youth of today.

 

While she hopes the access Optus Sport is giving school students “can inspire a whole generation of young girls and boys to dream of being a Matilda or a Socceroo,” Yeoman-Dale also longs that “by the end of this World Cup people stop talking about it as women’s football, but simply as football.”

 

Optus Sport is giving all Australian school kids the entire FIFA Women’s World Cup, at no charge. To redeem, any school kid can visit an Optus Yes store with a parent or guardian, and do not have to be Optus customers to activate.

While this certainly isn’t the first time Khloé Kardashian has had to defend herself against claims Tristan Thompson cheated on his pregnant ex, Jordan Craig, with her, the reality star has had to do so again following the release of court documents that see Craig allege his affair with Kardashian caused her to have “serious pregnancy complications.”

Per , the documents state that the stories Craig found herself at the centre of mocked her “new unfortunate reality” and made her pregnancy “one of the most popular gossip headlines due to the woman Tristan was now publicly dating.”

As a result, Craig said her obstetrician put her bed rest, as “this brought an enormous amount of negative, unwanted attention and stress into my life, and more critically, into my pregnancy.” In addition, she stated that such high levels of stress “eventually caused me to have serious pregnancy complications.”

Now, Kardashian has taken to Instagram Stories to set the record straight, again. Here, the Good American founder confessed, “I’m disappointed that I even feel the need to post this but…I need to say my truth,” before adding, “Take it as you will.”

Going on to detail exactly how her relationship with Thompson began, she wrote, “My truth is: I met Tristan because HE CHOSE to go on a blind date with me. A mutual friend set us up. After going on some dates, Tristan told me that he had an ex that was pregnant. Obviously, I was reluctant about us continuing to date or start a relationship.”

Continuing, Kardashian added: “He pleaded with me that the relationship was over long before we met. He had me talk with his most inner circle. He showed my physical proof (correspondence between the two) and had me on calls with his lawyers to prove his point. His best friends, business associates and even his mother told me, him and his ex were broken up before we met.”

While she confirms this account of how her relationship with the professional basketballer found its feet was the truth that she believed, she did apologise for any pain caused if this was not in fact the case. 

“This is my truth! The truth I believed and trusted,” she wrote. “If for any reason this is NOT in fact the truth, I am so completely and utterly sorry that TRISTAN and his inner circle would lie on something like this! I pray my truth is in-fact that. Lord knows I pray but now, I really don’t know what to believe. Truthfully, from the deepest parts of my soul I am sorry! I’m sorry for any pain that has been created either way. No woman deserves to go through anything like this! This is MY TRUTH.”

So there you have it. 

Visitors to Room 2141 of the Rayburn House Office Building, in Washington, D.C., the home of the House Judiciary Committee, may be excused for thinking that they had suffered a kind of whiplash this week. On Monday, when the panel conducted a hearing about the Mueller report, there was a partisan donnybrook. Democrats and Republicans snarled at one another, and at the witnesses, including John Dean, the Watergate figure, in a predictably sour and unenlightening spectacle. But, the next day, the same committee members assembled in the same place and engaged in a civilized and productive discussion. The subject that delivered the good bipartisan karma was the monopoly power of the nation’s tech giants. In other words, what Donald Trump and Robert Mueller have rent asunder, Google and Facebook have joined together.

The second session was chaired by David Cicilline, the Rhode Island Democrat who leads the Judiciary Subcommittee on Antitrust, Commercial, and Administrative Law. Cicilline is a man of ebullient enthusiasm—he kvelled when he announced that one of the witnesses had attended Brown University, his alma mater and the the pride of his home state—and the congressman’s good cheer infected the afternoon’s proceedings. The occasion for the hearing, though, was sombre—the precarious financial state of the nation’s news outlets. The reason for their peril is obvious, according to Cicilline: “Concentration in the digital advertising market has pushed local journalism to the verge of extinction.”

One witness summed up the dire state of affairs. Kevin Reilly, the editor of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, personifies old media; he even looks a little like Perry White, the newspaper editor in the old “Superman” television show. Reilly gave examples of how his paper’s scoops had exposed medical malfeasance and school-district corruption, and he celebrated the public’s continuing interest in the work of the Journal-Constitution. “Our audience has never been larger than it is now,” he said. “We have more people reading the Atlanta Journal-Constitution than at any other point in our history.” But many of those readers weren’t paying for the privilege but were instead viewing Journal-Constitution stories on other sites. “If others repackage our journalism and make money off it, yet none of that money makes its way back to the local paper, then it makes breaking that next story or exposing the next scandal more challenging,” he added in a written statement to the committee. “If that cycle continues indefinitely, quality local journalism will slowly wither, and eventually cease to exist.” In other words, newspaper stories are posted and read on Google and Facebook, and those companies, not the newspapers, reap the advertising revenue.

Cicilline called the hearing to discuss a bill he has introduced specifically to address the problem. The Journalism Competition and Preservation Act would allow publishers an exemption from antitrust laws, so that they could negotiate as a group with the dominant online platforms. Working collectively, the theory goes, the publishers could extract a larger share of the advertising revenue than they now receive. They certainly need it: as Cicilline pointed out, from 2006 to 2017 advertising revenue in the newspaper industry plummeted from forty-nine billion dollars to $15.6 billion. Notably, the senior Republican on the panel, Doug Collins, of Georgia, supports the bill. “If individual news outlets could count on being able to negotiate fair attribution and advertising-revenue agreements with the online platforms, the bleeding could be stopped. The problem, however, is that smaller news organizations don’t stand a fair negotiating chance when they try to negotiate deals with the platform giants. These giants stand as a bottleneck—a classic antitrust problem—between consumers and the producers of news content.”

The bill hardly seems like a cure-all for what ails the journalism business. As Matthew Schruers, the vice-president of a computer-industry group, pointed out at the hearing, Congress has tried to protect newspapers before, with little to show for it. In 1970, it gave newspapers a different kind of antitrust exemption, in order to prevent monopolies in regional markets, but technology, and also changing tastes, swamped that effort. The Cicilline bill, even if it were to become law, might meet the same fate.

But the hearing, which was the first of several on the power of the big tech companies, exposed a larger point. Google, Facebook, and their cousins Apple and Amazon have grown so vast that they have aroused the ire of the entire political establishment. And they aren’t only transforming journalism but also politics, retail, and virtually all commerce. The regulation, or even the breakup, of these companies is a long way off, and it’s not clear what form it would take. But the journey has begun. As Representative Matt Gaetz, a conservative firebrand from Florida, said at the hearing, “I believe that we are presented with a historic opportunity here—where right-wing populists and left-wing populists have joined together, under Chairman Cicilline’s leadership, to attempt to change the way that consumers interface with major technology platforms. In a committee that so often sees division, it’s nice to be working together toward such an important goal.”

In 1991, Claire Denis made the only movie to date that she has filmed in the United States: a long-form car commercial for Nissan. (The model in question, the Figaro, was sold only in Japan.) In the decades since, the film became so hard to find that Denis herself considered it lost. But earlier this year, the founder of the free streaming site Le Cinéma Club, Marie Louise Khondji, and her co-programmer, Bingham Bryant, found and bought a Japanese VHS version on eBay. As of Friday, the forty-minute featurette, titled “Keep It for Yourself,” is available on Le Cinéma Club in the form of a digital restoration of that copy; what’s more, the movie is no mere rarity but also a major cinematic treasure rescued from oblivion and now available to all.

The movie, done in melancholy black and white, is a minor masterwork of downbeat downtown romanticism. Sophie Simon plays Sophie Koudelka, a French woman from Dijon whose American boyfriend (Michael James), writes to invite her to move in with him in New York. She shows up—the city is first seen from the low-cost majesty of a tram ride, from Roosevelt Island to midtown—but, when she gets to his Tribeca building, he’s not there, and has left her a key to a vacant apartment.

The film, which fuses genres and moods deftly, boldly, and movingly, is as much a portrait of Sophie’s inner life as it is a vision of the city. Working with her longtime cinematographer Agnès Godard, Denis renders Sophie’s tangled solitude and loose-ends bewilderment in incisively composed images of randomly sublime street action, including scenes framed by the apartment’s windows. A chance encounter at a deli with another young woman (Sarina Chan) leads to a quick and brief friendship and a lyrical adventure that’s crowned by a simple yet thrilling tracking shot covering multiple city blocks (and by a song).

Then Vincent Gallo—in the first of his performances with Denis—turns up, late at night, at a parking lot (that’s where the car comes in), and all hell breaks loose. “Keep It for Yourself” at that point becomes a giddily comedic crime story, complete with oddball gestures of penance and a hot pursuit by police. The wondrous intersections of seemingly disparate fields of action lead to unexpected and momentous encounters. (Even the title turns out to be a diabolical twist of whimsy.) Denis’s film is a time capsule of New York habits, gestures, and sights; it’s also a political documentary on the wing, featuring a one-word New York Post headline—“WAR!”—and talk-radio bluster about the start of the first Iraq campaign. The grand scope of international conflict meshes with the tense air of ambient violence, both private and official, that’s at the troubled heart of the city—and of the distinctive, passionate, hard, and deep experiences that Denis distills from her American stay.

The Instagram account @preachersnsneakers began to reveal its teachings in the Lenten season. In March, it started pairing photographs of megachurch figures with screenshots documenting the street value of their casual clothing. Scrolling through, we spy a lot of Gucci accessories, a dazzle of Louis Vuitton patterns, and a selection of high-end athletic shoes—a collective document of the giddy extremes of contemporary costume, as practiced in a subculture where all the world is a pulpit, and players flex and strut in their streetwear. @preachersnsneakers is not devoted exclusively to sneakers, but sneakers are the foundation of the fashion culture it studies. And it goes without saying that sneakers are bigger than Jesus.

On May 26th, for example, the account featured a photo of a youth pastor at World Overcomers Christian Church, in Durham, North Carolina, who looked to be rumbling through a sermon in a black leather jacket, biker jeans, and a pair of chunky-soled running shoes produced by Versace, in collaboration with 2 Chainz. The value of the shoes in the secondhand marketplace—the price tag on their clout—was about fifteen hundred dollars, a function of both their scarcity and their modish chunkiness. The silhouette shares a normcore opulence with the Balenciaga Triple S trainers, which @preachersnsneakers spotted, a week earlier, on the praise-music singer Jake Hamilton. Offering social commentary in the form of digital collage, @preachersnsneakers has attracted more than a hundred and seventy-one thousand followers to date and exegeses from outlets as varied as Footwear News and Christianity Today, where a contributor wondered, “Perhaps the excess and superfluity of our present-day leaders’ clothing is a subconscious compensation for not being clothed with power from on high?”

@preachersnsneakers, which is run pseudonymously by an observant Christian who lives in Texas, blew up by probing the sensitive area where the values of the prosperity gospel and the Protestant work ethic intersect with both Thorstein Veblen’s theory of conspicuous consumption and Tinker Hatfield’s design work at Nike. The matter of the pastors’ Sunday best touches on questions of temperance and lust. In an interview with the Times, the account’s proprietor explained that he began the project in the spirit of protest, but he soon shifted to self-examination. “This is a pretty slippery slope to be judging people’s hearts behind how they spend,” he said.

Eager to continue the conversation that he sparked, the founder, inevitably, has launched a podcast, titled “Preachers,” with promotional art that pays homage to the typographical design signature of Virgil Abloh—who, as a streetwear eminence, a luxury-house luminary, and a Kanye West collaborator, is a natural favorite of these fabulous shepherds. Last week, joined by a pastor from Fort Worth, Texas, our host spent a pleasant fortyish minutes moseying around the question of “mainstream celebrity Christian culture and how the fashion and brand-name stuff fits in.” Also inevitably, the preachers featured on the account have little interest in the discourse. Discreet to the point of evasive, they have tended to greet press inquiries with silence, or with expressions of sorrow that some observers might damn them as profligates, or with a harrumph of how-did-you-get-this-number disgruntlement. The bold logos and dramatic vamps do the talking for them. The shoes proclaim power but also an eagerness to demonstrate fluency in a specific idiom of youth culture.

In a foundational scene of monotheism, Moses doffs his kicks to approach the burning bush; shoes are, by their pedestrian nature, unfit for holy ground. In the Gospels, when St. John the Baptist proclaims that he is unworthy even to loosen the sandal strap of Christ, he chooses his figure of speech to describe a posture of humility. Since the Byzantine era, the most important footwear in the Catholic faith has been pontifical shoes and papal slippers: two related categories of laceless red shoe worn by the Bishop of Rome. It was once the custom of a pilgrim to kiss the cross embroidered on its vamp. The current pontiff, Pope Francis, a Jesuit cutting a humble air to suit his message, shuns such finery, in contrast to his immediate predecessor, Benedict XVI. Keen on the iconography of pairing a steep mitre with a pair of flashy slip-ons, Benedict celebrated the majesty of clerical garments. His preferred shade of red, a kind of succulent tomato, closely approximates the color of the roughly five-thousand-dollar Air Yeezy 2s worn, as @preachersnsneakers shows, by John Gray, formerly a pastor at Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church, in Houston, Texas.

Gray tends to the soul of Justin Bieber, among many other matters, and has balanced his work in service of the Lord with a film-acting side hustle and a line of collar stays engraved with “Romans: 8:18-19,” which reads, “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” But the glory of the Yeezys, which are kissable in their plushness, is his in this life. Gray told the Times that they were a gift from the production company behind his reality-TV show, “The Book of John Gray,” which airs on the Oprah Winfrey Network—an explanation that elegantly combines a defense of the shoes’ expense with a nonchalant demonstration of his clout.

The Bieber connection is meaningful. Like pop idols hoisted for worship, these pastors aspire toward casual majesty and achieve prefabricated fabulousness. Another of Bieber’s spiritual leaders, Carl Lentz, was among a vanguard of pastors who, in selecting their vestments, aimed to swagger in investment pieces; Lentz is a main character in Sam Schube’s canonical “Hypepriests” piece, which ran in GQ two years ago. “It appears as if the hipster pastor has evolved,” Schube wrote. “It’s no longer enough to no-comment gay marriage while wearing a biker jacket. Instead, you need to do it while wearing skater socks. Aggressive glasses. Very long drawstrings. Bieber merch.” The disparate subjects of @preachersnsneakers all dress in the same key of fashionable garishness. For all its glorification of the self, this way of wearing clothes, as practiced by these people, studiously avoids distinctive personal style. These are basically outfits chosen for Drake to wear to the airport.

Or, put another way, the contempo-clerical look is as regimented as any other religious habit. Laypeople who cannot expect to receive five grand’s worth of Yeezys will be well served by other merchandise from Kanye West, who naturally joins Bieber as the other leading saint of this scene. He has a true heart for gospel; his trend sensors seek heat with great ardor; his talents have risen to the microcultural moment. A choice @preachersnsneakers post featured his merch table at Coachella: in an extension of his Sunday Service gatherings, which are A-list praise-music occasions, West retailed a muted sweatshirt, blazing with the phrase “Holy Spirit,” in a style observers have likened to the cult garb seen in “Wild Wild Country,” at what a fancy department store would call an accessible price point. Meanwhile, preachers, though unworthy to unstrap the sandal of Jesus, are with their private shoppers, browsing for shoes that don’t resemble sandals as much as they do the hobnailed boots of Roman soldiers that were favored by Caligula.

2018 rom-com movie, , starring four legendary Hollywood actresses — Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Candice Bergen and Mary Steenburgen — reminded audiences that entertainment doesn’t need to be challenging, searing or an endurance event. Movies can just be good old fashioned light-hearted, delightful, feel-good fun.

This movie in particular, on a reported budget of US$10 million was a surprise box office success, with movie data website, , reporting box office grosses of over US$91 million. It clearly resonated with audiences in large part thanks to its stellar cast and easy-to-enjoy plot.

The plot of the film revolves around a very common social scenario: a book club. Keaton (Diane), Fonda (Vivian), Bergen (Sharon), and Steenburgen (Carol), have been meeting monthly over wine and snacks to discuss books and life for 30 years, but when their latest book selection, Fifty Shades of Grey, causes them to reassess what’s happening in their own lives and relationships (or lack of) an enjoyable rom-com narrative follows.

No spoilers, but at the end of the film, most of the plot questions are pretty neatly resolved. However, it was such a pleasure to spend time with these characters (and the actresses that play them) that audiences are clearly keen to visit again with Diane, Vivian, Sharon and Carol and find out what’s next for this fabulous book club crew.

According to , Steenburgen has confirmed we will get that chance again, as a sequel to the beloved film is in the works. The actress also revealed that this foursome are just as great friends in real life as they are on the film, sharing that they recently caught up at Keaton’s house.

“I love them [Keaton, Fonda and Bergen] and I guess we’re doing Book Club 2, because the film was incredibly successful,” reports the actress said in an interview on Radio Andy. “We’re kind of obsessed with each other, because none of us had ever worked together and there had been these little meetings over the years between all of us, but the stories are so incredible.”

Stories aside, their dinners together sound pretty incredible too, with Steenburgen, Fonda and Bergen all taking to Instagram after their latest dinner at Keaton’s house to post about the gathering. Steenburgen’s post was particularly noteworthy with the actress captioning her post: “Another Book Club dinner. At @diane_keaton’s remarkable home. Oh my god, I wish we were filming these dinners cause they are so FUNNY. But some things just have to be a little moment in time. Wise, funny, supportive, dreamy friends. Love.”

 

No details on when exactly will be happening, but check back here, we’ll update this story as news comes to hand.

One of the more recent royal weddings to delight around the globe was the wedding of King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia’s only son, Prince Carl Philip, to his model girlfriend Sofia Hellqvist. While Prince Carl Philip was once the heir apparent, Sweden passed absolute primogeniture laws that forever transferred the line of succession to his sister, Crown Princess Victoria. Nevertheless, it was welcome news when he announced his engagement to Sofia Hellqvist, who called their initial meeting over lunch love at first sight.

The wedding took place on June 13, 2015 in the Royal Chapel of Stockholm Palace. The bride arrived in a dress designed by Ida Sjöstedt, made of crepe silk and Italian organza and finished with lace. Although very much a modern affair, the bride marched towards the traditional Swedish crowns that lay on cushions at the end of the altar, which are used
to represent the couple.

After the wedding, the bride and groom rode a horse and carriage to the Royal Palace’s Logården, where on the balcony the King of Sweden led the cheers for the happy couple before an extravagant wedding banquet was served.

If one had any doubt this was a modern duo, when guests bit into their colourful wedding cake they discovered it contained pop rocks, one final surprise from the spirited bride and groom.

Scroll through to go inside this royal wedding.

Prince Carl was third in line to the Swedish throne at the time of marrying, after his older sister Crown Princess Victoria and her daughter Princess Estelle. Prince Carl’s parents are King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silva. He also has a younger sister, Princess Madeleine. 

The bride wore a white bustier haute couture gown by Swedish designer Ida Sjöstedt with wide V-neck lace overlay and metres-long train. She was adorned with an emerald crown and diamond earrings. 

Royals of many nationalities attended the nuptials, including Crown Princess Mary and Crown Prince Frederik of Denmark. 

A banquet in the palace’s The White Sea Hall followed the ceremony. “Today I am the happiest man in the world,” Prince Carl said in his toast. “Sofia, you fill my life with love and happiness. With your love I will be able to overcome all challenges. Dear Sofia, I love you.” Both the bride and groom’s fathers spoke as well. 

 

Molly Sanden performed a song with lyrics written by the newly titled Princess Sofia. During the celebrations songs by Rihanna and Coldplay were played and a gospel choir performed. Guests then entered the Karl XI Gallery, which was modelled on Versailles’ Hall of Mirrors to continue the festivities. 

Thousands of onlookers gathered outside the palace to see the couple emerge as husband and wife in public for the first time.

The happy bride and groom.

When you’ve got a few hours up your sleeve, whether on a plane trip to some place incredible, or at home for the day feeling under-the-weather, or even just craving some solid couch time on a rainy Sunday afternoon, but have already seen every single slightly watchable recommendation from your favourite streaming service and iTunes, you need a movie that always delivers enjoyment. Every. Single. Time.

For those hopping on a plane, a tear-jerker is usually a hard no. Sobbing over or in the comfort of your own home is one thing, but shedding major tears in front of the too-close-for-comfort strangers in seats 48C, D, E and F is a level of public discomfort no movie is worth.

Equally, anything with a ton of sex is probably going to land you a few cross glares if not loud comments from families with under-18s in the seats nearby, so and the like are definitely out.

Horror is also best left out, screaming on a plane is going to freak everyone out including the pilot and it’s important the people flying the plane remain calm. Also, watching a horror movie when you’re home alone on a rainy afternoon is probably not best practice if you want to sleep that night.

So, what should be in your sheer escapist enjoyment movie list? Feel-good comedies, rom-coms, sci-fi and action movies, think: , , , , , and .

There is one caveat on the action genre, if your allocated movie-watching time is on a plane, train or bus, best to steer clear of action movies involving modes of transport that you’re currently on; avoid if you’re on the bus and when flying at all costs.  

Read on for a list of flicks to watch on a plane, on a day off or just when you have a spare few hours and want to escape into the enjoyable Hollywood popcorn entertainment zone.

Climate change is the most pressing issue in the world, and the twenty-three Democratic candidates for President have ideas about how to address it. For decades, economists have argued for a cap-and-trade system or a carbon tax as the cheapest and most efficient way to reduce CO2 emissions. Now progressives and climate activists are advocating for a different approach, focussing on renewable energy and creating jobs. Their efforts have resulted in the Green New Deal resolutions before Congress. What do the various proposals entail—and would any of them work?
