Yahoo News - about 1 month
On a very overwhelming inauguration day, Twitter is abuzz over — you guessed it — a distinct piece of outerwear. Kellyanne Conway wore a red, white and blue Gucci coat (which can be yours for $3,600, if you're interested) to Friday's inauguration festivities. In a brief interview with NBC, she described the piece as "Trump revolutionary wear." Turns out, Twitter thinks it's pretty, uh, revolutionary, too.

Taylor Swift And Tom Hiddleston Really Want You To Believe They're Together
Huffington Post - 8 months
While most of us are still reeling from the breakup of Calvin Harris and Taylor Swift (Caylor, if you will), the pop singer appears to have already moved on.  In a series of uncomfortably staged photos with Tom Hiddleston, the "New Romantics" singer is seen snuggling, kissing, climbing rocks and even taking selfies with the actor. At one point, the 35-year-old "Thor" actor puts his sweater around Swift and rests his head on her shoulder.  WORLD EXCLUSIVE Taylor Swift dating Tom Hiddleston - two weeks after dumping Calvin Harris.https://t.co/ytzLqZyGSu pic.twitter.com/2SBiPbFMxu — Dan Wootton (@danwootton) June 15, 2016 For more photos of the couple, head over to The Sun.  Hiddleston and Swift were previously seen dancing together at the Met Gala in May, when Swift was still dating Harris (or, at least, they hadn't officially announced their split yet).

More lawyers seek greener pastures in small boutique firms
Financial Post - over 3 years
I have previously written about how technology and the Internet have, in the words of Garry Wise, become “the great equalizers” among law practices. Many lawyers are realizing that being part of a large machine is no longer necessary to serve even the top end of Corporate Canada. And they’re realizing that differentiating themselves with more than quality is the key to success. So we see another boutique being set up in Toronto:  litigation shop, Monaghan Reain Lui Taylor LLP. Handout Partner Clarence Lui, states that the new firm offers a new value add — a strategic view.  “We all agree that each matter must initially be evaluated for its particular strategic options and the range of possible outcomes. Too many litigators work on a file without having a big-picture strategy beforehand. Clients pay too much when that happens,” he said.  “Clients deserve better. They should expect their advisor to always be looking for the least expensive and most effective strategy to prot ...

Jaimie Etkin: 'The Voice' Recap: Trevin Hunte Is Telling You He's Not Goin'
Huffington Post - about 4 years
"The Voice's" Top 6 took the stage on Monday night with a song choice of their own and one their coadge picked, while Christina Aguilera -- whose contestants have all gone home -- sat back looking what we're sure she thought was pretty. Unfortunately, Adam Levine did not address his controversial "Honey Boo Boo" remarks that made headlines on Monday. Chelsey was hoping Mama June would "show up to eat him." Sadly, she didn't. Thus, it wasn't exactly the most thrilling evening all around, but it's become clear that Trevin Hunte should sing a track from "Dreamgirls" every week. var src_url="http://pshared.5min.com/Scripts/PlayerSeed.js?playList=517567713&height=315&width=600&sid=577&origin=undefined&videoGroupID=138596&relatedNumOfResults=100&relatedMode=2&relatedBottomHeight=60&hasCompanion=false&cbCustomID=videoCompAdDiv&autoStart=true&colorPallet=%23FF0000&videoControlDisplayColor=%23191919&shuffle=0&conti ...

Thame Today - almost 5 years
If you haven’t been to Aylesbury Waterside Theatre yet, then try to catch the Alan Bennett’s Lady In The Van – which is showing until Saturday (and will only cost you £10 for a ‘cheap’ ticket), The incredibly funny, unusual and quirky play opened at the venue on Tuesday – and is worth going to see if you are yet to catch a show at the venue (in the personal view of Bucks Herald entertainment reporter Andrew Kay). The Lady in the Van is based on the true story of a woman who parked in the writers garden for 15 years. The show features a much larger cast than you expect along with excellent visuals and real vans. The story might sound dull (a woman parked in a van), but it is actually one of the most captivating and amusing shows to come to the Waterside in some time. {http://www.atgtickets.com/venue/Aylesbury-Waterside-Theatre/128|Click here for more details|Click here for more} Below are some of the other highlights on offer this weekend across the Vale, Thame and Tring (for a comp ...

Valente went the distance in a 2-0 win over the Troy High School varsity baseball team on Friday in an Oakland Activities Association Blue division game. The senior only allowed three-hits over seven shutout innings and finished the game with 10 strikeouts. Rain started coming down in the fifth inning, but the inclement weather didn’t spoil what was a terrific pitchers’ duel between Valente and Colts starter Michael Thomas. “The last two innings were difficult,” Valente said of the conditions. “I couldn’t land at all and it was tough to throw strikes with my curve ball.” Valente walked Matt Oppenlander to start the bottom of the seven inning and then hit John Wassel with a pitch. With no outs and two runners on, Valente dialed up some added heat on his fastball to get out of trouble. “I just had to rear ba ...

Train's Patrick Monahan talks hometown club shows
San Francisco Chronicle - almost 5 years
Train's Patrick Monahan talks hometown club shows Train's Patrick Monahan talks hometown club shows Say what you will about Train, but the band has stayed true to its San Francisco roots even with multiplatinum success. The group called its last album "Save Me, San Francisco," sang "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the Giants' Opening Day in 2011 and even did a free set in Golden Gate Park for Alice Radio's annual Now and Zen concert a few years back. To promote its sixth studio album, "California 37," out April 17, Train is returning to its hometown the week before release and playing a string of sold-out shows in just about every club in the city. Was there a lot of backlash here when Train hit? Do you happen to know if you have another "Drops of Jupiter" on the new album? There's a guy in New York that's worked for the band before and he didn't dig "Hey, Soul Sister" at all. Wed. at Great American Music Hall. Aidin Vaziri is The San Francisco Chronicle's po ...

Cookies, Karaoke, and Revolution
The Portland Mercury - about 5 years
From cookies and karaoke to revolution—four reviews of Fertile Ground shows. The Fertile Ground festival of new works continues this weekend, with new plays debuting at theaters across town. See fertilegroundpdx.org for details on what's coming up; meanwhile, here's a look at what we've seen so far. Famished, Portland Playhouse at the Imago Theatre, 17 SE 8th, Thurs-Sat 7:30 pm, Sat-Sun 2 pm, through Feb 5, $19-23 As a rule, I am strongly in favor of any endeavor that involves someone giving me a cookie. It boded well, then, that snacks were handed out as we entered the theater for Portland Playhouse's production of Famished. The early moments of the show were equally promising: Famished opens with a playfully choreographed family dinner, introducing the six characters whose lives give the show its shape. Once that shape emerged, though—and once it became apparent just how much food-related baggage playwright Eugenia Woods ha ...
