Celebrities Coming Out of the Infertility Closet
Huffington Post - 2 months
When I was going through fertility treatment, "E! News" anchor Giuliana Rancic and the first "Apprentice" winner, Bill Rancic, had a reality show called, Giuliana And Bill. On it, they shared their experience with In Vitro Fertilization, miscarriage and the emotional rollercoaster one in six go through to conceive. At the time, I didn't watch the show as I felt I was already living it but I had great respect for their openness. The show shined a light on infertility issues but on a personal level, it helped my mother gain insight into my life so she could better support me. Lately, there seems to be a growing amount of celebrities that are sharing their path (or rocky road depending) on trying to have a baby. John Legend and Chrissy Teigen have recently opened up about their experience with IVF and the use of pre-genetic screening (PGS) to have their daughter, Luna. John Legend was quoted as saying, "People shouldn't be ashamed of their fertility struggles" and I think so many who ha ...

‘Fast and Furious’: Has America’s basic building block become the posse?
Reuters.com - almost 2 years
By Lynn Stuart Parramore Paul Walker (L) and Vin Diesel star in ‘Furious 7.’ Universal Pictures               The Fast and Furious movies are blazing a trail into the record books. The 2013 Fast & Furious 6, which hauled in $788 million worldwide, has now been topped by Furious 7, which zoomed from a record-breaking opening weekend to four consecutive weeks at No. 1. (Avengers: Age of Ultron took the top spot this past weekend.). Furious 7 has made a dizzying $1.3 billion worldwide, behind only Avatar and Titanic. It might just outpace them, too. That’s quite a showing for a franchise that may well signal America’s speeding decline. Furious 7 points to a future in which vast numbers of people feel like outsiders on an ever more threatening and disappointing global stage. Despite its multicultural celebration and hooray-for-family-values nostalgia, something alarming lurks at the heart of Furious 7. That something is ultimately tribal, allergic to institution ...
