Naya Rivera, the actress best known for her role as Santana Lopez on the hit Fox show “Glee,” was pronounced dead on Monday after her body was recovered from the lake in Ventura County, California, where she went missing last week. She was 33.
Washington — The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday that it is illegal for an employer to fire someone because of their sexual orientation or gender identity, delivering a major victory in the fight for civil rights for LGBTQ people.
This is great news for my LGBTQ friends who are having a rough time with the current administration rolling back protections in many areas of life. It’s truly a shame that people who are just living their lives and really bothering no one have to go through the pain of discrimination in any form.
Have you ever noticed that when famous people issue statements, or answer difficult interview questions, that they often say the same things? It’s almost as if there is a rule book somewhere, filled with excuses.
Macy’s said Wednesday it’s shutting down 68 stores and cutting more than 10,000 jobs.The announcement was issued alongside an unfavorable earnings report, showing comparable store sales dipped 2.1% last quarter. The news caused its stock to plunge nearly 10% during after-hours trading Wednesday.

AT&T and Time Warner have agreed to an $85 billion deal — one of the biggest media tie-ups ever.The move, announced Saturday evening, will help AT&T expand beyond wireless and Internet service into programming. Time Warner is the parent of CNN, TNT, HBO, the Warner Bros. studio, and other channels and websites. AT&T to buy Time Warner in media mega-deal – Oct. 22, 2016
This move caught me off guard. Granted I wasn’t looking for it though. AT&T and TimeWarner are two of America’s largest distribution and media companies. I am not sure this is good for competition or for diversity in opinions. We will have to see how this shakes out or even gets approval by the federal government. AT&T recently bought DirecTV and TimeWarner was bought by AOL years ago and spun AOL off to independent operation. Again, wow, this is huge!
This story is inspiring. For a young man to pursue life, liberty and happiness on his terms and not by the traditional rules is refreshing. His chosen art medium is cosmetics and for him to embrace it fully speaks to his credibility. To me as long as he is doing what he loves its cool with me.
