‘Birds of Prey’ Composer Daniel Pemberton on Scoring a Roller Skating Action Scene and Writing Music Worthy of Harley Quinn [Interview]

‘Birds of Prey’ Producer Sue Kroll on Me Too, Reshoots, and Sequel Possibilities [Interview]

Producer Sue Kroll has been with Birds of Prey from the very beginning. Since it was just an idea in star Margot Robbie‘s head while she was originating her breakout character Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad. Since director Cathy Yan came to Kroll and fellow producer Bryan Unkeless with a vision of a wild, bombastic, and unabashedly fun girl gang movie. “There was something very raw about it, very visceral,” Kroll said of the sizzle reel that Yan showed to her and Unkeless. That visceral tone was...

Tech companies like Samsung are moving into the advertising business, using data to create targeted people — but it will take a lot more than that to succeed

Mike Shields, the former advertising editor for Business Insider who is now CEO of Shields Strategic Consulting, argues that tech companies like Samsung and Vizio's moves into advertising could be successful — but that there are a lot of pitfalls. Samsung has data on when and how customers watch ads, which it could use to produce better advertisements. Samsung will have to contend with a slew of other well-armed competitors making a similar play, though. Click here for more BI Prime stories. ...

Inside the wild stunts and fight sequences of 'Birds of Prey,' which were inspired by 'John Wick,' 'Atomic Blonde,' and Jackie Chan's 'Drunken Master'

"Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)" has been praised for its action scenes. The fight sequences were conceptualized by Jon Valera and Jonathan Eusebio, coordinators from stunt company 87eleven Action Design, as well as Shahaub Roudbari. The company was founded by "John Wick" filmmakers David Leitch and Chad Stahelski, who came in for reshoots to fine tune the action. Roudbari broke down for Business Insider each character's distinct combat style and the proce...

New Colorful Dinnerware from Alice Waters + Heath Ceramics, All for a Good Cause

“When we first opened Chez Panisse in 1971, we used to buy vintage sets of Limoges china, which we had to hand wash at the restaurant (that lasted about a month!),” Alice Waters says. Over the years, as Chez Panisse established an international reputation and Alice Waters became known as a slow food pioneer, it was time for a bespoke approach to dinnerware. “I’m a neutral plate person, and I was looking for something that would harmonize with the food,” Alice says. “I didn’t imagine we could fin...

How Jackie Chan and ‘John Wick’ Inspired the Action Sequences in ‘Birds of Prey’

One of the prevailing issues with recent superhero movies are the clear division between the drama and the action sequences. The comic book movie industry has become a well-oiled machine, and as a result, you get CGI-packed action sequences designed by a VFX team while the indie auteur who was plucked out of obscurity to helm a major blockbuster gets to focus on the narrative and character scenes. But Birds of Prey director Cathy Yan didn’t want that to happen with her comic book film. “It was ...

2010s restaurant industry news

In the last decade , food culture underwent a seismic shift. Celebrity chefs became just as interesting as, and in some cases more important than, the food they prepared. Sure, we had Julia Child in the latter half of the 20th century, but the start of the 21st century saw the concept of the “chef personality” she pioneered in America explode in popularity: Anthony Bourdain and Gordon Ramsay became household names. Padma Lakshmi dominated reality television as the host of Top Chef. David Chang...

Nibbling at Dylan Pahman’s Chick-fil-A argument

Nibbling at Dylan Pahman’s Chick-fil-A argument As though guided by an invisible hand Dylan Pahman and I – independently and without coordination – each posted an essay about Chick-fil-A’s philanthropic giving within minutes of one another, each with slightly different emphases. Readers may see this as a conflict; however, probing the space between these analyses helps make sense of customer backlash, illustrates why “woke capitalism” of any variety is a mi...

OH Really: Got Goat Milk?

Raw, unpasteurized goat milk can be bought in Ohio for use as pet food. But between the teat and the street, farmers have to do a lot of work to make the milk safe for human consumption. In this installment of WKSU’s “OH Really?,” we try to help a listener who wants to “drink local” and buy fresh, raw goat milk right from the farm. Goats are everywhere at Ferrum Moraine Farm in Kent . Owner Gwenn Volkert has used raw goat milk to make goat cheese and even goat soap. But she’s never sold raw milk...

K-Tec Systems CEO Cathy Koch “Believed She Could, and So She Did”—with Help from wegg® and FedEx

“Every morning,” K-Tec Systems CEO Cathy Koch says, “I put on a bracelet that says: ‘She Believed She Could, and So She Did.’ I believe a woman must believe ‘she can’ from the day she opens her business.” Koch’s U.S.-based K-Tec Systems manufactures and assembles custom-designed thermocouples and wire harnesses.

Why Are Chicken Sandwiches Becoming So Big In America?

(CNN) — Months after this summer’s brief but brutal fried chicken sandwich battle, rivals are diligently plotting to win the longer war. Popeyes, which sparked the latest fight with its spicy chicken sandwich in August, is scrambling to bring back the viral sensation “as soon as possible.” Chick-fil-A is steadily growing its reach, outselling chicken chains nearly twice its size. And McDonald’s franchise operators, who watched the fight from the sidelines, are pressuring their corporate boss to ...

‘Crime Beat’ podcast: Letters between Cathy Torrez and the man her mother believed killed her

About a month before she was murdered, Cathy Torrez wrote two letters to Sam Lopez to let him know she only wanted to be his friend and talk on the phone occasionally. He wrote back to her expecting her to take him out on a date. Sam lived across the street from Cathy in Placentia, where they had been neighbors for almost five years. They had dated, secretly, for about eight months when they were both students at Valencia High. On Feb. 19, 1994, Cathy was found dead in the trunk of her own car. ...

Comment on almond raspberry layer cake by Cathy

This was by far the favorite cake in the 4 tiered wedding cake I made for my daughter (my first, and hopefully last!). At her request I added poppy seeds (1/3 c for a 12” round layer). I also glazed the layers with apricot and filled with Swiss buttercream (also yours). Such a success! (Everyone also raved about the chocolate cake from your wedding cake article—so tender). All the layers were made and frozen weeks in advance and held up beautifully. Thank you for giving me the confidence I neede...

‘Crime Beat,’ Season 2 podcast debuts: ‘Mom vs. Murderer’ focuses on Cathy Torrez killing, 21-year pursuit of justice

Imagine being a mom enduring two weeks of hell. For 14 horrible days – from Feb. 5 to Feb. 19, 1994 – Mary Bennett watched her daughter’s once-promising life fall apart. In those two weeks, Cathy Torrez, 20, an honor student at Cal State Fullerton, may have been drugged and raped. She was beaten and abducted. And then, it got worse. Two weeks of hell turned into a lifetime when Torrez was found dead in the trunk of her own car. She had been stabbed 74 times. And even though Mary Bennett knew in ...

Briefly in a Lake

I am trudging along here – still looking forward (rather desperately) to the day (28 days) from now when the Bike Rally is finished and things shift around here.  I am not even sure what I will do that day, though I’ve reached a phase of hopefulness where I start piling knitting projects up around the house so I can look at them as I walk by. I can only imagine that August 17th is a day that the Wild Knitting Rumpus will begin, assuming I am conscious.  Between now and then I’m trying to get all...

Comment on bakery-style butter cookies + the new book is here! by Cathy

I adore your unfussy book. I got it for Christmas last year and have loved just about every recipe I’ve tried. (And I say “just about” because clearly, anything I haven’t loved has everything to do with the recipe and nothing to do with the cook, who neglected to read the recipe in advance..). And loving the book brought me to your site, which I also love. I just found the recipe for chocolate banana bread, and noticed that you made it three times.. in a week… And I thought ‘funny, that sounds j...
