George Clooney seems to be determined to dive back into the universe of series. After the announcement of Catch-22, he signs this time with Netflix for a mini-series on the Watergate scandal. As a director at first…
The Watergate scandal continues to feed creators’ ideas. George Clooney is now launching a mini-series for Netflix. An update was provided on the information available.
A mini-series in 8 parts
This topic sounds as a strange way with current events. Many American political experts compare the investigation currently targeting Trump’s family and friends with the Watergate. And now Variety magazine announces that George Clooney is going to make a mini-series in 8 episodes for Netflix about the scandal that brought Nixon down .
Accompanied by screenwriter Matt Charman (Le Pont des Espions) and actor Grant Heslov (Monument Men), he will produce the series with Sonar Entertainment. If Netflix has not yet confirmed this project, it seems that each of the 8 episodes focuses on one of the key characters in the case. We should therefore have the right to journalists but also to “Deepthroat”, the code name of Mark Felt, the source of reporters and FBI number 2.
George Clooney in front of and behind the camera?
While George Clooney has just directed Bienvenue à Suburbicon, we already know that he should direct some of the episodes of the series. What is not yet known, however, is whether it will play a role. A few weeks ago, you were told that the star of Emergency would play in a new series with “Catch-22” which he will also direct. Might as well say that he could try again.
Of course, this is not the first adaptation of the Watergate. As a reminder, this is a case of political espionage led by President Nixon and unveiled by two journalists from the Washington Post. This key moment in American political history was brought to the screen with Alan J. Pakula’s The Men of the President in 1976 or, more recently, Oliver Stone’s biography Nixon.
In 2015, as indicated by the manufacturer’s website, we have been celebrating the 80th anniversary of Monopoly. A worldwide success for this game born in 1935 in the imagination of Charles Darrow, an unemployed man of the 1930s, who became a millionaire thanks to his invention. A beautiful story. But there is only one flaw: it is fake!
In a recent book, American journalist Mary Pilon tells us the true origins of a game born out of a woman’s political will, Lizzie Magie, to bring to the greatest number the progressive ideas of American intellectual Henry George and his masterpiece Progress and Poverty (1879). At the beginning of the 20th century, she invented its Landlord’s Game with her land purchases, taxes on the rich and her denunciation of monopolies. She obtained a patent in January 1904 and began its commercialization. This was followed by an incredible story: played in the utopian community of Arden in Delaware, which made its own sets and started to call it Monopoly. The quakers of Atlantic City changed the rules and, from hand to hand, the game moved on to Philadelphia, where a couple taugh it to their friends, the Darrows…
Charles asked a cartoonist to make him a nice tray, then he started selling the game. One of the biggest manufacturers in the industry, Parker Brothers, bought it from him. In December 1935, the company quickly obtained a patent and bought his own from Lizzie Magie for 500 dollars. Parker Brothers knew the true origin of the game…
Sales were then skyrocketing. In the United States, then all over the world. Charles Darrow was always ready to give interviews to explain how he invented “his” game. In the 1960s, a few witnesses to the true story began to mobilize, but nothing really happened. Until 1974, when Parker Brothers made a huge mistake.
Karl Martin Sandberg (born February 26,1971), better known as Max Martin, is a Swedish singer-songwriter, record producer and singer. It gained importance in the second half of the 1990s, after making a series of major successes for artists such as Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears and NSYNC. Some of his early successes include “I Want It That Way” (1999),”… Baby One More Time” (1999) and “It’s My Life” (2000).
Martin wrote or co-authored 22 Billboard Hot 100 hits number one, most of which also produced or co-produced, including Katy Perry’s “I Kissed a Girl” (2008), Maroon 5 “One More Night” (2012), Taylor Swift’s “Space Blank” (2014) and The Weeknd’s “The Can Not Feel My Face” (2015). Martin is considered the third singer-songwriter behind only Paul McCartney and John Lennon.
At the beginning of 2013, The Hollywood Reporter put its individual sales at more than 135 million.
In 2014, Martin beat Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and Dr. Luke to take second place in most of the number one hit list for a producer, behind George Martin, who had compiled 23 at the time of his death.
Martin’s influence on music is also evident in the effect he had on co-producers. Luke and Shellback. Time Magazine reported that “There is a group of high-powered songwriters based in Sweden, and the great master is Max Martin and when Kotecha worked with One Direction, he credited Martin’s influence” In Sweden, you don’t do anything until you do it right. The New Yorker reported that Martin was “the Swedish mentor and frequent collaborator of Dr. Luke. If Luke is the Skywalker of pop songcraft, Max is the Obi-Wan: the lonely master… The vital spark in Dr. Luke’s musical emergence has met Max Martin.” Dr. Luke himself says of the chemistry between him and Martin””It happened very quickly. It was magical. … Instead of making tracks for five thousand people, why not make tracks for a million? The magazine for the Swedish Muslim mana Gement STIM reported that Shellback became an “apprentice” with Martin acting as “his mentor” at Maratone Studios after 2006 when “Max Martin saw something special in the young man from Karlshamn. Judging by the incredible success Shellback has had since then, Martin’s A & R skills are among the best in the music business.”
Have you ever experienced embarrassment when taking off your clothes at a pool? Or maybe you felt bad as people laughed because you couldn’t fit in a lounge chair. Don’t worry, The Resort is the answer to all your plus-size prayers.
Personalized stay for plus-size clients
Located in the island of Eleuthera – The Bahamas, this holiday resort offers certain commodities a plus-size person would need and moreover, would want to have. The whole holiday inn has been customized to fit plus-size clients: the doorways are wider, beds are reinforced with 2-inch steel bars and lounges are a metre-wide.
However, the resort is not only comforting their clients in the idea of accepting their body. An activity program includes group therapy and exercises to force clients to re-evaluate their body. The hotel can welcome up to 28 people either in groups or separately. Privacy is also an important point as they ensure a 5 mile long private beach.
To enjoy a 6 night stay at The Resort, you may consider saving some money. A week stay costs around $16,400. This price includes food (Caribbean and American food) and the connection between the airport and the resort.
In a country where obesity is a main problem, the resort has been accused of normalising the condition. However, Mr King, the owner of the property denied those allegations. He instead guaranteed the place’s purpose is to bring peace and serenity to the clients.
Mr King also reminds that the place is open for average-size travellers. As people may reserve the place for groups, it can happen that overweight people are less numerous. Developing its notoriety, The Resort accumulated a 65% occupancy rate which is already a great number.
We should maybe expect another resort to open near the Cat Island, even though the owner states his will is not to build and run many complexes.
