Martin-Green, as Michael Burnham, is at the helm of “Star Trek: Discovery” which is headed for a fifth season. While Mulgrew was the first woman to lead a series on ’90s “Star Trek: Voyager” and has returned to her character, Kathryn Janeway, albeit as a hologram, in the new animated series “Star Trek: Prodigy.” Both shows are on Paramount+. In a joint interview, both captains talk about inspiring women and why hair styles can be important in deep space. Responses have been edited for brevity and clarity.

The hotel was Japanese-inspired, and its windows appeared to have a rice-paper-like translucency. Lennox was already beginning to struggle with the early onset of fame-related anxiety, and this didn't help. "It felt like I had nowhere to hide," Lennox says now. "I was so conscious of earthquakes, because I had never really been to San Francisco before. Maybe once. And I was just thinking, 'Oh my God, I feel so vulnerable. Now we've got rice-paper windows and earthquakes happening.' It was like being naked in front of the world." The single that kick-started the duo's pathbreaking, almost decade-long run up the pop charts - the galvanic synth-pop classic "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" - will turn 40 next year. In the run-up … [Read more...] about Annie Lennox beguiled us in the MTV age. Now she calms us down online.

Dean Fleischer Camp realized as much in the summer of 2010, when the first audience was introduced to the stop-motion character's trembling timbre and infectious positivity. After promising he'd make a video for a friend's Brooklyn comedy show, the filmmaker got his then-partner, "Saturday Night Live" alum Jenny Slate, to riff in character as a minuscule mollusk in a big world. (One quip: "Guess what I do for adventure? I hang-glide on a Dorito.") Dropping Slate's voice in Marcel's roughly sketched mouth, Camp delivered a three-minute mockumentary that played as amusing, absurdist and, to his surprise, delightfully disarming. "It was kind of an arty, judgmental crowd there, so I was not expecting them to melt … [Read more...] about ‘Marcel the Shell’ made it to the big screen by staying small
California Governor Gavin Newsom and Democratic sponsors of a proposed state constitutional amendment protecting abortion rights. Photo: Rich Pedroncelli/AP In the lead-up to the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization , it was widely understood that the elimination of the federal right to abortion would unleash a torrent of state legislative activity on abortion policy , particularly in red states where Republicans are eager to ban abortions. But there’s another arena for abortion policy that’s drawn less attention: state constitutions, and the state courts that interpret them, which could tie the hands of legislators. Voters in at least four states will vote on constitutional amendments this year that either explicitly recognize ( California and Vermont ) or repudiate ( Kansas and Kentucky ) abortion rights. The first test will come in Kansas in its August 2 primary; the other three votes will be in November. A majority of … [Read more...] about State Constitutions Are Now an Urgent Abortion Battleground

More than two years after the pandemic began, coronavirus cases are on the rise around the world lately, due mostly to certain variants, and the health — and vaccination status — of individual athletes is once again a key issue. At Wimbledon, where the All England Club is following British government guidance that requires neither shots nor testing, three of the top 20 seeded men have withdrawn over the first four days of action because they got COVID-19, with No. 17 Roberto Bautista Agut pulling out … [Read more...] about COVID-19 at Wimbledon: 3 top-20 men out after positive tests
0 Politics & Government Schumer's letter appeared to take a shot at Manchin's startling "Fox News Sunday" appearance. Daily Montanan , News Partner Posted Reply Daily Montanan December 26, 2021 U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said Monday he plans to force votes on voting rights, a sweeping social policy bill and a change to Senate rules early next year — even as members of his caucus have made clear in recent days Democrats lack the support to pass those proposals. In a letter to Democratic colleagues Monday, Schumer, of New York, said the Senate would vote in early January on a new version of President Joe Biden’s $1.85 trillion social spending and climate bill, as well as voting rights legislation deemed essential by many Democrats in advance of the midterm elections. Schumer said that if Republicans use procedural tools to block consideration of voting rights through the filibuster, the Senate then … [Read more...] about U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer Plans To Force Votes On Voting Rights
