    Obama plans to expand overtime eligibility for millions of workers - Yahoo NEW!

        U.S. President Barack Obama on Monday announced a proposal that would make nearly 5 million more workers eligible for overtime pay, a move that would touch nearly every sector of the U.S. economy and could face legal challenges. Obama in an editorial posted on the Huffington Post website said the proposal would more than double the maximum income a salaried worker can earn and still be eligible for overtime pay to $50,440, or $970 a week. "Right now, too many Americans are working long days for less pay than they deserve," Obama wrote.

    Milwaukee museum to display portrait of pope made of condoms - Yahoo NEW!

        The Milwaukee Art Museum says it hopes a portrait of Pope Benedict XVI made of condoms will ignite a conversation about the AIDS epidemic in Africa and the role art plays in public discussions, director Dan Keegan said on Monday. Milwaukee Catholic Archbishop Jerome Listecki called the museum callous and the portrait insulting in a blog last week on the Archdiocese website. About 17,000 colorful condoms were stitched together to fashion the portrait called "Eggs Benedict," which the museum plans to put on display in November, museum spokeswoman Vicki Scharfberg said.

    'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Sequel Gets Official Title - Huffington Post NEW!

        2014's "Guardians of the Galaxy" was a massive hit. Even before the movie managed to pull in close to $800,000,000 at the box office worldwide, we knew there was going to be a sequel (even before the movie hit theaters we knew there was going to be a sequel). Now that sequel has a name. On Monday, Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige let it slip to Collider that the much-anticipated sequel will be called "Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2," and filming is set to start sometime around February or March 2016. Details surrounding the sequel have been kept hush, hush, but "Guardians of the Galaxy" director James Gunn confirmed the title via Twitter later in the day: Yes, the official title for the @Guardians sequel is GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2. Nice detective work, @colliderfrosty, etc!

    Celebrating the Divine Ann Blyth - Huffington Post NEW!

        "YOU THINK just because you made a little money that you can get a new hairdo and some expensive clothes and turn yourself into a lady. But you can't because you'll never be anything but a common frump whose father lived over a grocery store and whose mother took in laundry!" That was Ann Blyth, in one of her many vicious confrontations with Joan Crawford, in the 1945 classic movie, Mildred Pierce. Blyth, playing Crawford's ungrateful, murderous daughter Veda, was so awful, that she inspired another of the film's characters, Eve Arden to quip: "Alligators have the right idea, they eat their young." (Eve was always good for the pungent remark. In Ziegfeld Girl playing a chorine past her prime: "I'll think I'll retire, settle down and adopt a boy -- about 21!" • Mildred Pierce was Blyth's fifth film and her first major movie role -- she had begun, auspiciously on Broadway. She was Oscar-nominated (At that time, still a teenager, she was the youngest nominee ever.) Blyth could have been a great film noir dame, but she was also blessed with an exquisite lyric soprano, and was placed in a series of musicals, in which she played "good girls." She was somewhat typecast, although she had a great dramatic role in 1957's The Helen Morgan Story. And earlier, she was marvelous in the famous tearjerker, Our Very Own. Now, at last, a book about Blyth's long career is coming. It is titled Ann Blyth: Actress, Singer, Star, written by Jacqueline T. Lynch. This examines and analyzes how the darker, edgier aspects of Blyth's persona were tamped down in favor of films that showcased her beauty and her singing voice. (Not that there was anything wrong with her musicals, such as Rose Marie, The Student Prince and Kismet.) The book has a lot of detail about her films, her many stage, TV and cabaret appearances. 300 photos. •I recall seeing her back in 1992 at New York's Rainbow & Stars. She was vocally and physically ravishing. I remember thinking maybe that famous Twilight Zone episode, in which she played an eternally youthful movie star, had some real-life credence? Miss Blyth is still with us, still lovely. Glad she getting her due. When I met Ann at Liza Minnelli's star-crammed wedding in 2002, she was so charming, and spoke reverently about Joan Crawford, who she knew I knew. •P.S. Fans of Turner Classic Movies are familiar with Ann Blyth's tribute to Joan Crawford, who became a lifelong friend after their work on Mildred. Although Crawford, in later life, was always free with withering criticisms of stars (women) of whom she did not approve, once you won Crawford over, she was devoted. More than that, she knew what was good for her movies. Blyth almost takes Mildred Pierce away from Crawford, but Joan realized what was needed. (You won't see or hear anything more chilling than Veda's confession about sleeping with Mildred's hubby: "Monty's going to divorce you and marry me. And there's nothing you can do about it.") •CAROL BURNETT became a star with her debut on Broadway in Once Upon a Mattress, a musical version of the The Princess and the Pea fairytale. Now the show, written by Jay Thompson, with music and lyrics by Mary Rodgers and Marshall Barer, will have a revival, I feel certain Miss Burnett will approve. From November 22-January 3, John "Lypsinka" Epperson and Jackie Hoffman take this musical to unexpected new heights. Directed by Jack Cummings III, Mattress, will be at the Abrons Arts Center, presented by The Transport Theater Group. Call 212-564-0333. •THE LATEST issue of The Hollywood Reporter is packed with news, as usual. Two stories stood out, to me. One was Michael Wolff's take on "How Brian Williams Will Save MSNBC." As we all know, in the wake of Brian's exaggerations, he has been replaced by highly regarded Lester Holt as the face of NBC Nightly News. So Williams has been "demoted" to become the "breaking news" guy for MSNBC. As writer Wolff points out, the steady and still dignified presence of Williams has arrived just in time. MSNBC has gone so far to the left, and has employed so many fools (or smart people who in their arrogance and self-amusement, behave foolishly) that even some of the most liberal liberals have turned away in embarrassment. Not to mention the omnipresence of network's much-mocked Locked Up marathons. So, Brian Williams is the start of what might be a series of upheavals and program changes and shifts. I hope he does well because everybody deserves a second chance -- and he didn't kill anybody, for heaven's sake! Also because I'd like to see MSNBC recover itself. With the presidential elections looming, having a reasonable liberal voice on TV is more important than ever, now. •"TODAY'S MEN are shameless hussies!" That's a quote from the other Hollywood Reporter story that caught my eye. Written by Merle Ginsberg, it is titled "Introducing The "Stromo!" Hollywood's Male Stars Go Gay (ish)" This is about the trend for straight male leading men to not care about, and even encourage, the idea that they might play in another ballpark. They pose provocatively wearing as little as the law allows, give major interviews to gay publications (The Advocate, Out) play gay roles and don't get all bent out of shape when asked if they are gay. Nick Jonas, Channing Tatum, James Franco, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ryan Gosling, Daniel Radcliffe, Ryan Reynolds are just a few who are on board. And why not? All actors love to be admired. Why not cash in on the lucrative gay audience? And, as writer Ginsberg points out, straight men, in general now enjoy being objectified, in the way women are -- they want to be sex objects. Admired by the women they sleep with, and by the men they don't sleep with. It's a big tease. It's big business. (The Magic Mike movies appeal equally to both sexes.) There's always been "beefcake" but the old studios put out those photos ostensibly to appeal exclusively female movie-goers--although many of the "at home" sessions with the likes of Tab Hunter, Roddy McDowell and Tab Hunter, lounging around steam rooms or poolside, were coded to alert the then-closeted gay audience. And in the 1970s and early 80s we had ambiguous, androgynous rock stars, like David Bowie, who hinted they were open to anything. Today's well-chiseled men are brazenly putting it out there for everybody to see and fantasize over. (Although, let's give credit where credit is due -- 1981's male-stripper TV movie For Ladies Only starring Gregory Harrison. That was the original Magic Mike.) Anyway, metrosexual is out; "Stromo" is in. It will be the cream of the jest if, in a few years, male actors begin to revolt against this objectification, just as many women have. "Oh, no -- I'm more than that...I won't take my shirt off...I'm not showing my ass. I am a serious actor!" -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

    Ava DuVernay Tweets Her Support For Real-Life 'Black Superhero' Bree N... - Huffington Post NEW!

        Ava DuVernay knows a black superhero when she sees one. On Saturday, the “Selma” director wrote a tweet to express her support for 30-year-old activist Bree Newsome. Newsome was arrested earlier that morning after she scaled the 30-foot flag pole outside of the South Carolina statehouse and removed the Confederate flag. Yes. I hope I get the call to direct the motion picture about a black superhero I admire. Her name is @BreeNewsome. pic.twitter.com/BgMeaNsbYk— Ava DuVernay (@AVAETC) June 27, 2015 DuVernay is among a growing list of supporters who hail Newsome as a hero for taking a stand and speaking out against her intolerance of the flag. Filmmaker Michael Moore even offered to pay Newsome's legal fees and North Carolina NAACP President Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II compared her to iconic civil rights activist Rosa Parks. Newsome is reportedly charged with a misdemeanor for defacing monuments on state Capitol grounds, an offense that carries a fine of up to $5,000 and a prison term of up to three years, according to the Associated Press. Meanwhile, DuVernay, who is rumored to take on Marvel's "Black Panther" movie, has yet to officially comment on her net move. Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige recently told The Hollywood Reporter that the film studio has met with DuVernay and is also in talks with other directors for the project. Despite the rumors, one thing is clear: If DuVernay doesn't produce a film on Black Panther, at least she has inspiration for another black superhero.

    Elizabeth Berkley Finally Embraces 'Showgirls' After All These Years - Huffington Post NEW!

        1995 just wasn't ready for the campy brilliance of "Showgirls." But 20 years after the film flopped in theaters its star, Elizabeth Berkley, has finally embraced the cult classic -- and the film's adoring fans. On Saturday night, the former "Saved by the Bell" star gave a heartfelt speech before a screening of the film at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles. "This is such a special night, you don’t even know. This is 20 years in the making, I can’t believe I’m here with you. 4,000 people. 4,000 Nomis, 4,000 Cristals," the 42-year-old actress told the massive crowd. Berkely went on to say how she did everything her character Nomi Malone would have done to get this part. "When a dream is happening, it's unlike anything you can imagine. Which is why, when the movie came out, it was more painful than anything you can imagine," she said. "While in 1995, it was such a different time when taking risks like that were not embraced. They were laughed at, they were shamed publicly, and to be a young girl in the center of that was something that was quite difficult." Two decades ago, critics were not kind to Berkley or the NC-17 rated film, but critics be damned, as Berkley learned it's the fans that matter. "Tonight is like this magical full-circle moment, where I actually didn't get to experience the sweetness of a screening with a crowd that embraced it. Tonight I want to thank you guys for giving me this gift of truly getting a full-circle moment of experiencing the joy with you," she said, adding, "because you guys and the love you have for this movie have made this the cult film that it is." Berkley concluded her speech by telling the audience, "I hope that you grab life and go Andrew Carver on its ass. Just know that I love you guys so much and thank you for giving me strength and confidence to become the woman that I am." And while Berkley may have shunned the film for the last 20 years, she proved she still remembered the best parts just as any true "Showgirls" fan would by posting the legendary "Versace” scene to her Instagram account: #versayce #Versace #nomi #showgirls #serve A video posted by Elizabeth Berkley (@elizberkley) on Jun 27, 2015 at 10:08pm PDT -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

It discovered the vulnerability during an ongoing review of its IT systems, it said, which is being carried out in the wake of at least two serious security breaches.Still, it’s a big inconvenience. The system, called E-QIP, is used by multiple agencies to carry out background checks on potential new hires, and it will be offline for four to six weeks, the OPM said.“The actions OPM has taken are not the direct result of malicious activity on this network, and there is no evidence that the vulnerability in question has been exploited,” the agency said, calling the decision to take E-QIP offline a proactive measure to ensure ‘the ongoing security of its network.”To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
