Ava DuVernay Tweets Her Support For Real-Life ‘Black Superhero’ Bree Newsome

Ava DuVernay knows a black superhero when she sees one.

On Saturday, the “Selma” director wrote a tweet to express her support for 30-year-old activist Bree Newsome. Newsome was arrested earlier that morning after she scaled the 30-foot flag pole outside of the South Carolina statehouse and removed the Confederate flag.

DuVernay is among a growing list of supporters who hail Newsome as a hero for taking a stand and speaking out against her intolerance of the flag. Filmmaker Michael Moore even offered to pay Newsome’s legal fees and North Carolina NAACP President Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II compared her to iconic civil rights activist Rosa Parks.

Newsome is reportedly charged with a misdemeanor for defacing monuments on state Capitol grounds, an offense that carries a fine of up to $ 5,000 and a prison term of up to three years, according to the Associated Press.

Meanwhile, DuVernay, who is rumored to take on Marvel’s “Black Panther” movie, has yet to officially comment on her net move. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige recently told The Hollywood Reporter that the film studio has met with DuVernay and is also in talks with other directors for the project.

Despite the rumors, one thing is clear: If DuVernay doesn’t produce a film on Black Panther, at least she has inspiration for another black superhero.

(Ava DuVernay did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Huffington Post.)

Your Obnoxious Facebook Statuses, Only In Real-Life Situations

Further proof that most Facebook statuses are terrible.

What if, instead of simply writing your next emotion-filled Facebook status for all your friends too see, you say exactly what you were going to write directly to their faces? How freaking awkward would that be? Yeah, because no one talks like that. And yet we all have no problem doing it on our social media pages.

Whether it’s “Like this status if you like me” or “I’m going off the grid for a little while so just call my phone,” no one is safe from the periodic obnoxious Facebook post.

But as video creator Jason Horton shows in his video, next time you feel one coming on, say it out loud to yourself and then see just how truly stupid it sounds.

Real-Life Little Debbie Is All Grown Up (And Doing Well!)

She’s not so little anymore.

Debbie McKee-Fowler is the original inspiration for the Little Debbie logo and is currently the Executive Vice President of McKee Foods, the company created by her grandfather.

Recently, Little Debbie McKee-Fowler was honored at the 30th Annual Chattanooga Women of Distinction Awards luncheon. Which is how we found out that today, she looks like this:

Per the event’s website, grownup Debbie was honored for doing good in the world:

What makes her one of our women of distinction is not the fact that her face has been on one the country’s favorite snacks since the 1960’s; it’s the fact that she has not used this platform to promote herself or her family to any position of prominence or power, but has quietly worked to enrich her community.

It’s worth noting that the logo has changed only slightly since Little Debbie’s picture was taken, when it was adapted by Atlanta-based artist Pearl Mann in the ’60s.

Wrestler (And Real-Life Superhero) John Cena Honors Young Fan Battling Cancer

John Cena may not have real super powers, but the WWE wrestler is known for his ability to make dreams come true.

Last year, the 38-year-old became the first celebrity to grant 400 wishes through the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

“I think it boils down to the fact that John connects with children in a really special way,” a spokesperson for Make-A-Wish told Yahoo! News at the time.

On Monday night’s episode of “WWE Raw,” Cena showed off his wish-granting powers yet again when he honored a young wrestling fan who is battling cancer.

Cena, the current WWE United States Champion, was facing off with Kevin Owens when he spotted the youngster in the audience. The child was carrying an “I’m Beating Cancer” sign.

“If I … say the words ‘never give up,’ not only am I telling the truth, I am encouraging young and old, all alike, like that person right there, to do the exact same thing,” Cena said, pointing out the kid.

Later, once the taping of the show was over, the wrestler went into the audience and ushered the youngster into the wrestling ring.

The look of incredulity on the kid’s face says it all.

Meet The Real-Life Astronomer Who Inspired Jodi Foster’s Character In ‘Contact’

Are we alone in this vast cosmos? That’s the burning question that drove Dr. Eleanor Arroway — a fictional astronomer in Carl Sagan’s book “Contact,” who was played by Jodi Foster in the 1997 film adaptation — on her epic quest for extra-terrestrial life.

And it’s also motivated the career of Dr. Jill Tarter, the real-life astronomer said to have inspired Arroway’s character.

(Story continues below image.)
jodie foster contact
Jodi Foster as Dr. Eleanor Arroway in the film “Contact.”

Tarter retired in 2012 after spending 35 years scanning the skies for alien signals, and more than a decade as director of the Center for SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) Research in Mountain View, Calif. But she’s still actively involved in the search for life — and is encouraging the next generation of E.T. hunters.

To learn just what Tarter is up to now, and find out what’s motivated her to keep up the hunt, HuffPost Science emailed her a series of questions. Here, lightly edited, are her answers:

What makes you sure that alien life is out there?

I’m not sure. This is a question that we are trying to answer. It is as legitimate to ask of the universe, “Is life ubiquitous, or singular?” as it is to ask “How did it all begin?” “How will it end?” and “Are there other universes?” During my own career, the discovery of extremophiles and exoplanets have made the universe appear more bio-friendly, but that is not the same as saying that biology, and life-as-we-don’t-yet-know-it exist beyond the Earth. This question will only be answered by exploration. That is what SETI is trying to do — and we do not know the answer.

“If they can get here, then they are far more technologically advanced than we are, and the reality is that they will set the rules of the game.”

What got you interested in the search for life?

The Cyclops Report from 1971 — written by Barney Oliver and John Billingham — was the result of a series of summer studies at NASA Ames and Stanford. In reading that workshop report, I was impressed by the notion that after millennia of asking priests and philosophers what to believe about life beyond Earth, the middle of the 20th century presented us with some tools that permitted scientists and engineers to do experiments to try to find the answer. Telescopes, rather than belief systems, could potentially show us what is, rather than what others said we should believe. I realized that I was in the right place, at the right time, with the right skills (undergrad degree in engineering physics and Ph.D in astronomy) to join this exploration. I got hooked, and have stayed hooked all these years.

NASA’s chief scientist predicts we’ll find alien life within the next decade. Do you agree?

Ellen Stofan, as NASA spokesperson, was talking about finding microbes somewhere in the solar system beyond Earth. It’s a bet that I’d take, but again that’s not the same thing as knowing the answer. As for any potential mathematicians out there, NASA has excluded those searches from its astrobiology program. Doesn’t make logical or scientific sense, but it is a political reality.

Why do you think we haven’t found it yet?

Many reasons:
— We don’t yet have the right tools, and/or may not yet know the right things to look for (applies to microbes and mathematicians).
— “Beyond Earth” is vast beyond human comprehension, and we haven’t yet looked in the right places in the right way.
— We have already done so, but not recognized it.
— One of two versions of Clarke’s Third Law: Any sufficiently advanced technology will be indistinguishable from magic. Or, any sufficiently advanced technology will be indistinguishable from nature (this due to Karl Schroeder).

What’s kept you going over decades of not finding life? Does it get disappointing?

Only the interactions with politicians and funding agencies is disappointing. The discoveries in the realms of exoplanets and extremophiles continue to excite. Our ability to search in different ways continues to improve (now at exponential rates). The question grows more, not less, important as time goes by.

At what point do we give up the hunt?

Only after searches have been systematic and inclusive enough that null results become significant — a long way from where we are today. Practically, when humanity in all its forms of government, corporate, or private reaches a threshold of pain or indifference and is no longer willing to fund the exploration.

Should we beam out our own signals into space, for potential aliens to find?

The book SETI 2020 suggested that since we are such a young, emerging technology, we should listen first, and transmit only after we’ve become an older, stable technology capable of undertaking very long-term projects such as transmitting. Not all of my colleagues agree with this.

What will happen if aliens find us before we find them?

Whatever they dictate.

That sounds ominous. Stephen Hawking has warned that aliens might want to conquer Earth and enslave us. Do you worry about that?

Not necessarily ominous, just a reality check. If they can get here, then they are far more technologically advanced than we are, and the reality is that they will set the rules of the game. As to what their intentions might be — I’m not competent enough to say (and neither is Stephen Hawking, as smart as he is) — extraterrestrial psychology is a field without any experts.

“I grew a tough skin, and after being “one of the boys” for decades, finally woke up and started trying to support other females around me and under me.”

NASA and other organizations want to go to Mars. Should we? And what do you think about setting up a colony there?

The dinosaurs did not have a space program. Humanity is a single-point of failure as long as they occupy only one planet. Spreading beyond Earth is a good strategy for longevity. It is however, no guarantee if we take all our old habits with us.

You’ve spent decades working in a male-dominated field. What was that like? Has science become more welcoming for women?

Yes, science has become more welcoming, but there is still a long way to go. Fortunately the worst offenders are dying off, and from what I can see of the younger generations of scientists, both males and females are adopting an attitude of partnership and shared responsibility towards life and work. That’s a good thing, because there is growing evidence that postponing childbirth until the mother gains tenure, or partnership, or whatever goal of security/seniority, a strategy that was adopted by many of my generation and the baby-boomers, has led to significant rise in rate of learning and other disorders in offspring.

What was it like? I grew a tough skin, and after being “one of the boys” for decades, finally woke up and started trying to support other females around me and under me.

What’s your role in the search for life, now that you’re retired?

Attempting to raise the money to keep the searches going as long as may be necessary; something I did not succeed at while I was Director. I don’t want to lose the next generation of clever scientists and engineers willing to take a chance on SETI, but unwilling to jeopardize their ability to support their families. Roller coasters are only fun as rides in amusement parks, they are a real drag in the world of funded research.

As we all know, your work inspired Ellie Arroway’s character in “Contact.” What did you make of the movie?

“Contact” was a fantastic movie. It has now been out there so long, that I experience many young colleagues who tell me that this movie was what inspired them to go into science. That’s the best endorsement I can think of! We need a Contact II.

In the movie, Arroway gets into a pod and travels through a series of wormholes, not knowing if she’ll make it back. Given the opportunity, would you get into that pod?

Yup, in a heartbeat.

From Audrey Hepburn to Marilyn Monroe: The On-Screen and Real-Life Wedding Dresses of 13 Movie Stars

Catherine Deneuve

The princess bride is largely a creation of the cinema, that filmic realm where OTT weddings are the norm (if sometimes the result of wacky plots, i.e. How to Marry a Millionaire), and fantasy dresses are designed to have maximum impact. And, just as it can be difficult to separate an actress from her role; we often come to think of her on-screen wedding style as her own, even though that’s often not the case.

 

 

Take Audrey Hepburn, that doe-like child-woman, for example: When, in Funny Face, Hepburn as Jo, marries Fred Astaire (Dick), it’s in an ethereal tulle dress topped with a veil that’s perfectly in character. But when Audrey married Andrea Dotti in 1969, her dress was anything but conventional. Not only did she select a long-sleeved, funnel-necked minidress, but she wrapped her head in a Space Age scarf. When Catherine Deneuve, who once said of Roger Vadim, “I loved him enough to have a child by him but not enough to marry him,” tied the knot with David Bailey (“He makes me laugh,” said the French beauty of the British photographer), she did so in a simple LBD. (The groom wore jeans.) Steamy sexpot Marilyn Monroe also dressed against type for her marriage to New York Yankee Joe DiMaggio, exiting City Hall to a flurry of paparazzi in a simple dark suit enlivened with a light collar and orchids. Here, the wedding dresses—fact and fiction—of thirteen of our favorite actresses, from Dorothy Dandridge to Keira Knightley.

Real-Life “Shawshank” Prisoner Arrested 56 Years After Escaping

The fictional tale of Andy Dufresne is triumphant tale on how one man could overcome wrongful persecution and adversity.

Well, the real story of Frank Freshwaters is about a criminal who was once jailed at the prison used for the classic movie, The Shawshank Redemption and escaped shortly after being transported to another one.

More than a half of century later, he’s back in police custody.

Reports News13:

Frank Freshwaters, 79, of Melbourne was arrested Monday afternoon in a case straight out of the prison escape-themed movie, “The Shawshank Redemption.”

Freshwaters, aka William Cox, was arrested less than 24 hours ago. Tuesday afternoon he stood before a judge.

Freshwaters is a name he’s not gone by since escaping from a work farm back in 1959.

At his court appearance where he waived his extradition, the wheelchair-bound man listened to the escape charges that have followed him for 56 years.

That’s where it all began so long ago.

Investigators said he had been on the lam since serving time at Ohio State Reformatory, then escaping from the Sandusky, Ohio Honor Farm after serving just seven months of a 20-year sentence for probation violation of a manslaughter conviction.

Agents of the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office GAMEOVER task force paid Freshwaters a visit Monday afternoon at his Jones Road mobile home.

They were acting on a tip from the Cold Case Unit of the U.S. Marshal’s Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force that Freshwaters might be in the Melbourne area.

“Approached him, showed him the 1959 picture, asked if he’d seen that person. He said he hadn’t seen him in a long time,” said Major Tod Goodyear with BCSO.

Investigators said he even had a valid Florida driver’s license, was receiving social security and appeared to have avoided trouble all this time.

He did get caught in West Virginia in the 1970’s, but the extradition fell through and he was released.

Only in the movies would they let bygones be bygones.
