Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg gave South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg the names of several potential hires as the Democrat continues his bid for president in an anti-big tech environment. Zuckerberg sent emails to Buttigieg’s campaign manager, Mike Schmuhl, laying out people who might be good hires, campaign spokesman Chris Meagher told Bloomberg News. The Silicon Valley billionaire’s wife also provided Schmuhl with recommendations. “Since the beginning of the campaign, we’ve built a top-tier operation with more than 430 staff in South Bend and around the country,” Meagher said. “The staffers come from all types of background, and everyone is working hard every day to elect Pete to the White House.” Zuckerberg and his wife, Priscilla Chan, made the recommendations shortly after Buttigieg kickstarted his campaign in April, Bloomberg noted Monday. Employees asked them to reach out after seeing Buttigieg in a 2017 Facebook Live.

In December 2019, police in Rexburg, Idaho alerted the media: Two children had gone missing, along with their mother, Lori Vallow, and her new husband, Chad Daybell. No one had any idea where they were. Quickly, speculation swirled—that maybe their disappearances, and their whereabouts, could be linked to the “cult-like” religious beliefs held by Vallow and Daybell. Both were avowed members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and Daybell had found a small amount of celebrity within Mormon circles for authoring LDS fiction and running his own book publishing company. But both Vallow and Daybell also entertained ideas at the fringes of the Mormon faith—ideas that weren’t acceptable to talk about in church on Sundays. They held study groups and scrutinized the works of “near-death experience” authors who claimed to have died and come back to life with knowledge from “beyond the veil.” Much has been discussed about : the gorgeous mother and former beauty queen … [Read more...] about Doomsday Dad Chad Daybell Believed He Was a Seer Who Could See ‘Beyond the Veil’

Tom Hanks is known for being the world’s most popular everyman actor. His leading performances in movies like Forrest Gump , Philadelphia , Saving Private Ryan , and Cast Away were so powerful because he created an umbilical cord between the movie and its audience. Thanks to Hanks’ warmth, charm, and relatability, viewers could picture themselves as his characters and, thus, could just as easily imagine overcoming the obstacles that Forrest, Andrew Beckett, Captain John H. Miller, and Chuck Noland had to endure. I doubt that most people will find anything relatable—or redeemable—about Colonel Tom Parker, Hanks’ character in Elvis . While he helped Elvis Presley’s popularity explode across the country and then the world, so much so that he went on to become the highest selling solo artist in musical history, Parker’s unethical management of the icon led him to pocket at least half of Elvs’ income over his career. Parker is unlike any movie that Hanks has been in before, … [Read more...] about Has Tom Hanks Given His Last F*ck?
