82-Year-Old Ridley Scott Shares Some Secrets About 'Alien'

Ridley Scott was the fifth choice to direct the 1979 film Alien, remembers the Los Angeles Times, "meaning that no one was expecting the film to become as important and influential as it now is." This week they chronicled some more remembrances about the film from 82-year-old Ridley Scott: The central role of Ellen Ripley — also portrayed by Sigourney Weaver in three subsequent sequels — was originally written as a man... "I think it was Alan Ladd [then president of 20th Century Fox] who said,...

New books by Redlands-area authors encourage families to talk about coronavirus

A pair of new books, one written by Loma Linda medical students and one by a University of Redlands graduate, aim to help children make some sense of the novel coronavirus pandemic and what they can do to help. Both books came together quickly. For Loma Linda University students Devon Scott, who plans to specialize in orthopedic surgery, and Samantha Harris, who is pursuing pediatrics, “Why We Stay Home” took just two weeks to come together. “Little B Learns About Social Distancing,” written and...

If you give your mail-in ballot to a friend to drop in the mailbox, you didn't actually vote. Your friend voted twice. Once with his own vote and once by deciding whether or not to put your vote in the mail. #MailInVoting — Scott Adams (@ScottAdamsSays) May 27, 2020 Could one of you math geniuses check the math? If your friend knows your vote is for the other candidate and he chooses not to mail his, then he prevents his vote from being canceled by yours and keeps his vote as a vote. Is that e...

Police Fire Tear Gas At Crowd Protesting Against Killing Of George Floyd

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — To the general public, the video of a white police officer pressing his knee into the neck of a black man prone on the street, crying out for help until he finally stopped moving, was horrifying. Four officers were fired a day after George Floyd’s death, a stunning and swift move by the Minneapolis chief with the mayor’s full backing. But despite their dismissal, whether the incident will be considered criminal, or even excessive force, is a more complicated question that will...

Top 10 NHL Jerseys Discussion Nourishes ‘Social Closeness-ing’

Social distancing, huh? That’s a good one… and nothing new. As a young boy and teenager, our family lost our dad and my sister. Then, in the blink of an eye, the rest of my brothers and sisters were out of the house, doing grown-up things. I also said goodbye to friends who moved away. But on the fortunate side, I developed life-long friends who I consider brothers and sisters to this day. And here I sit in Hawaii (6,000 miles away from where I grew up in Marlboro, Mass., my very own socia...

United We Mask: GOPers View Mask-Wearing As Key To Reopening Economy

Three prominent Republicans bolstered North Dakota Gov. Doug Burgum’s (R) to end the “political” divide on mask-wearing requirements during Sunday morning interviews. Unlike President Trump’s refusal to wear a mask while touring a Ford plant outside of Michigan on Thursday — despite White House staffers being ordered to do so after two aides tested positive for the novel coronavirus earlier this month — Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine (R), Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) and Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) ar...

More mentions on Overlawyered’s adjournment

The nicest single thing anyone says about me this week might turn out to be from Bob Ambrogi at Legal Sites: “Let’s retire jersey number one.” Thanks! Or it might be one of the kind things Scott Greenfield says here. Here’s what I wrote in response to Scott: Thank you for those kind words. As you guessed, my choice of “adjourned” was mostly because of its legal flavor, but also signaled that I’m not retiring or going away. I like blogging!

Even ‘Contagion’ Couldn’t Prepare Steven Soderbergh for How “Deeply Irrational” Everyone is Acting During the Pandemic

Directing Contagion may have prepared Steven Soderbergh for a pandemic, but not for the deeply stupid human behavior that people have had in response to a pandemic. The filmmaker’s acclaimed 2011 thriller was ahead of the curve — showing the breakdown of society and difficulties of curbing the spread of a deadly virus long before coronavirus (COVID-19) even existed. Contagion was a famously realistic take on the pandemic movie, with Soderbergh employing a team of researchers and consultants to ...

Celebrity Escape Room Review – Red Nose Day Special Is Wildly Fun Curiosity For Charity
