Nick Jonas Declined His “Find You” Music Video& We’re All Freaking Out

0

OMG, you guys. Today is already a great day. Nick Jonas’ “Find You” music video is finally here, and it’s certainly, really good. Nick Jonas, the international follower of sex, is always surprising us with brand new music, and this time it’s something entirely, perfectly stylish. Jonas’ brand-new carol, “Find You, ” is the sort of gentle pitch to get you in the mood to dance on the beach with a knot of attractive strangers. Jonas does that in the music video, and this is really stimulating for me. Can I do that? Is that what a beach day with Jonas is like? If so, sign me up.

Jonas removed “Find You” on Sept. 14, 2017, and the entire world started bobbing their brains. We know where to find you, Nick Jonas. You can find him on the radio until eternally because this song is catchy AF, y’all. So what does this music video certainly necessitate? Who is it about, and why is he driving an expensive auto so close to the ocean? Watch out, dude! One of the melodics says, “I look for you in the center of the sun.” I have no clue what that could entail, but do not seem directly at the sunshine, beings. It’s not worth it to merely find a riddle daughter that deters obscuring from you. No way.

This is Jonas’ second song to come out this summer, and we aren’t mad about it. The ballad, “Remember I Told You” was the catchy song released in May. It featured Mike Posner and Anne Marie, and it showcased Jonas’ sultry voice. Mama like. Both songs are completely different, but both are sensual.

One thing is for certain, Jonas knows how to connect with his fans. In October of 2016, he told

Heartbreak is a theme that a lot of people relate to — the challenges presented by the next steps in their own lives, and when some openings open, and how you approach the next ones opening … I saw pretty quickly that it was a lot of what my fans could relate to. It’s nerve-wracking when[ the pities] are as personal as the ones that I shared were. But I appear allayed when I use my writing as a method to process — it’s extremely therapeutic.

Jonas is getting deep, and I like it.

Here are more words to deeply analyze 😛 TAGEND

I took a capsule but it didn’t facilitate me numb
I see your appearance even when my seeings are shut
But I never certainly know where to find you

I taste the words that keep falling out your mouth
If I could love you I would never put you down
But I never truly know where to find you

Where to find you
Where to find you
But I never genuinely know where to find you
Try, try, try
Try, try, try
Try, try, try
But I never actually know where to find you

I’m guessing, based on the music video, Jonas is stumbling through a sweltering, steamy desert all alone, and finally obtains the beautiful California coast. Although one would assume the first stop “wouldve been” immediately into the giant body of water, Jonas instead dances with all the beautiful women working in the beach. Hey, we all have our priorities. Is he looking for that special woman he lost long ago? Is he searching for himself? Oh, Jonas. You are a strange man.

At the end of the video, Jonas climbs into a Lyft on the beach and leaves. Yes, he gets into a freakin’ Lyft. I couldn’t believe it either, but it happened. Does that have implication, or is it clever make placement? Maybe a little bit of both, honestly. Although Jonas never seems to find who he’s go looking for, the music video is a delicious treat.

Now, let’s all get out there and shake our hips to this sexy little song and find our inner dance! Afterall, we’re all looking for something.

As you can see in this video, the car also narrowly avoided a collision with a bus. These rough riders won’t be living this moment down any time soon – Twitter has quickly caught wind of the wild crash and immediately took advantage of what is certainly a ripe meme opportunity.

Brexit will be catastrophic. Yet I still reinforce Jeremy Corbyn | Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett

0

We need to stop blaming the Labour leader for the Tory car crash, says freelance columnist Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett

Since his rise to power in the Labor party, Jeremy Corbyns appeal to younger voters has been firstly underestimated and then often investigated. How is it that, despite his rather lacklustre performance during the referendum campaign, younger voters the majority of members of whom wanted to remain in the European union stubbornly persisted in vote in favour of him in the legislative elections? Labours much-denigrated failure to commit itself to freedom of push is a distressing sellout of his young allies, leads this wire of gues. So why are they chanting his mention at Glastonbury? To some, Corbyns popularity exactly does not compute, even now.

Perhaps an account of my own conflicted sympathies on the Labour leader might shed some light on why, for so many, his Brexit stance is not the be all and end all. Dont get me wrong, I and Im sure many other Labour voters deem Brexit to be the most difficult behave of political self-sabotage in my lifetime, with stark results for my generation and those following it. Were it to be miraculously cancelled I would be over the moon. But theres a sense that some would like everything to be about Brexit and simply Brexit. When it comes to what parties care about in 2017 and vote on the basis of that plainly is not the case.

I assembled the Labor party after the 2015 ballot. I had voted Labour then, despite reservations over asserts it was not the working party for beings on assistances( during part of my childhood my family had been on benefits, and I was already sick to the back teeth of the relentless stigmatising in the media, and find politically homeless as a result of it ). My main reason for voting as I did despite that cowardly programme of compensating lip service to the widespread Conservative-backed demonisation of poor people was that Jeremy Corbyn was my neighbourhood MP. He was anti-austerity, as well as well-respected locally as a dedicated and compassionate constituency MP. I detected able to vote for him with a clear conscience.

After the Conservative victory, I joined Labour. I was devastated by the result, and felt that I needed to be involved in the direction that leftwing politics in this country was taking. I voted for Corbyn as Labour leader( and would do so again a year later ), again motivated by his anti-austerity stance. During this period, Corbyns followers were announced naive and quixotic, but it was clear to me at least that there was something in the air. Momentum was improving. He might be unelectable, I told myself, but at the least he believes in something. And that something happened to be the sort of socialism that I envisaged had vanished from British politics for ever.

A year later, and the referendum decision was for Brexit. The Labour party appeared to be imploding, and I was ferocious with all of them. I was angry at Corbyn for not campaigning as difficult for are a matter of I felt he could have done, and enraged at the Labour MPs for their ruinous attempted coup at a time when they should have been nailing the Tories to the wall for their disarray. Yet again, I appeared politically homeless( because of tuition fees, I would never countenance voting Lib Dem ). This, combined with a general inclination of unease about political relationship not mixing well with journalism I wanted to feel like I could slag Labour off if I experienced they deserved it led to my leaving the party last-place summer.

Now, Im not laying claim to universality here; how any of us come to make decisions considering politics is as complex as it is personal. But I do know that many others I spoke to detected the same way as I did they adore the EU and what it expressed support for, were heartbroken to be leaving, and likewise felt that Corbyns campaigning on such issues left a lot to be wanted. So when another general election was announced simply a year later, many of our exchanges revolved around the question of who the hell we could vote for. And hitherto all of us, ultimately, ended up voting for a Labour party led by Jeremy Corbyn.

There were a number of reasons: a genuinely progressive, exciting manifesto; the opportunity for real political change; the feeling that Corbyn was authentic and that he was dedicated to attacking inequality in all its forms, including the growing generational schisms. There was also the facts of the case that the alternative a hard Brexit presided over by Theresa May and an increasingly hysterical rightwing press didnt allow thinking about. What Labour was offering to try to retain the benefits of the single market and the customs union seemed like the realistic, least worst option.

Brexit is a disaster, but it is happening. I may wish more than anything that it wasnt, but I too wonder how one can advocate that legislators can plainly ignore a democratic solution when they so choose. Labour is clearly is conscious that some of its voters also voted for Brexit and is trying to walk a knotty tightrope. As someone who has detected both dispossessed and politically eliminated, I balk at the idea of neglecting these voters, even if I myself believe that their vote to leave was misplaced. Brexit was never exclusively about leaving the EU a year ago, and nor should it be now. That election was as much a cry for help due to the housing crisis, austerity, and a deteriorating NHS as anything else. How can we just ignore that? In any case, a genuinely anti-austerity legislator is the best probability those same parties have at a better life.

I imagine there are quite a few people out there who experience the same as I do. To a limited extent Corbyns hand has been forced by his own party at a time when no one actually even is well aware Brexit will look like. But he is not the one in charge of this mess, and how the Tories gondola crash uncovers will have a significant bearing on the future of the two countries. Perhaps it is to them that we need to turn our eyes.

To the Woman in the Target Parking Lot, 5 Years Later

0

Few tragedies have rattled America quite like the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School on December 14, 2012. Though the horrific event happened five years ago, many of the victims’ families still bear very fresh scars from that fateful day.

But amidst the acts of evil that have plagued our nation in recent years, there have consistently been rays of hope in the darkness. From the selfless heroes in Las Vegas to the prayerful strangers in Orlando, and angels in Target parking lots in Newtown, Connecticut, our country has continued to slay terrorism with kindness.

In the middle of the tragedy and heartbreak, these acts of pure selflessness from total strangers are the hope we cling to for a better world. For Tina Hassinger, she will never forget the woman in the Target parking lot who went above and beyond to comfort her the day she found out about the Sandy Hook shooting, where her mom was the principal.

Though she lost her mother day, Tina will never forget the compassion shown to her by this sweet woman. Even five years later, she remembers it as a “bright spot in my memory of that dark day.”

Read Tina’s powerful thank you letter “To the woman in the Target parking lot, five years later” that has now touched thousands of hearts across the web:

“To the woman in the Target parking lot, five years later:

It was mid-morning, maybe 10:00. My older boys were at school, and I was shopping with my younger children. Charlie was two years old, Alyson just five months.

We were in the dairy aisle, just about ready to check out when my phone rang. It was my sister calling to tell me there’d been a shooting at Sandy Hook, the elementary school where my mom was the principal.

I didn’t know yet that she had been killed.

I headed toward the exit of the store, abandoning a cart full of diapers and Goldfish crackers in front of the doors. I gathered the kids and rushed out of the store. Was it then that you noticed me?

I don’t remember what I did when I got outside, but I know that’s when you approached me. Was I standing still, dazed? Was I frantic? I don’t remember.

My memory of what happened over the next several hours is patchy. Some details are vividly clear. Other parts I don’t recall at all.

It was unseasonably warm for mid-December. Were we standing just outside store? Or had I made it into the parking lot?

You told me to sit down. Maybe I was pale, shock having drained the color from my face? I must have been holding Alyson’s infant carrier. Was I also carrying Charlie? Holding his hand?

I told you there’d been at shooting at my mom’s school. I think you asked me something then, but I don’t remember what. You said something in attempt at reassurance. But again, I can’t recall what it was.

I stood to head toward my car and you did something to help. What was it? Did you carry Alyson in her carrier? Or did you hold Charlie’s hand as you walked us to the car?

You asked if I was okay to drive and offered to follow me home, to make sure we got there safely. I think I told you no, that it really wasn’t necessary. But you insisted.

When we got to my house, I don’t think we spoke again. Did I wave my thanks as you drove off? Or did you wait in your car to watch as we disappeared inside?

I don’t remember your face. And I never asked your name. But I remember your kindness, five years later.

I’ve recounted the story of your help and concern that day many times. I have remembered your kindness over and over again.

My mom used to say, “Be nice to each other. It’s really all that matters.” I don’t know you, but our brief encounter indicates you truly embody that philosophy.

Helping a stranger in distress came naturally to you, and I am sincerely grateful for your actions. Your compassion is a bright spot in my memory of that dark day.

To the woman in the Target parking lot, I want to say thank you, five years later.”

Evil will forever be a present force in our world, and pain its companion, but it is people like this that remind us that goodness always wins. Like this beautiful soul in the Target parking lot, may we continue to be a society that bravely shines light in the darkness.

Ford Says Farewell to Mass-Market Cars

0

Ford Motor Co., the 114-year-old automaker that put the world on wheels, is turning away from its original mission of selling sedans to the masses.

The company responsible for launching the modern carmaking era with Henry Ford’s assembly line will pivot away from being a full-line automaker, shrinking its passenger-car lineup and shifting only to low-volume, high-margin models.

The reason? Years of coming up short on a long-held profit-margin target. Earnings disappointments cost former Chief Executive Officer Mark Fields his job in May, and his replacement Jim Hackett has since laid out plans to reorient the company around lucrative sport utility vehicles and pickups, plus play catch-up on the trends that are sweeping the auto industry: the rise of electric, autonomous, connected and shared vehicles.

“Let’s be clear: We are not satisfied with our performance,” Chief Financial Officer Bob Shanks told analysts Tuesday. “For the past seven months, we have undergone a rigorous assessment to ensure we are fit as a business and are making the choices that will create the Ford of tomorrow.”

Read more: Detroit Ditching Cars to Mint Money Off Trucks

Ford shares plunged 7 percent, the steepest drop since July 2016, to close at $12.18 on Wednesday. The stock rose just 3 percent in 2017, trailing Tesla Inc.’s 46 percent surge and General Motors Co.’s 18 percent jump.

Before delivering a presentation at the Deutsche Bank Auto Industry Conference, Shanks warned that adjusted profit will fall this year to $1.45 to $1.70 a share, down from about $1.78 last year. While Wall Street had been expecting a drop from 2017, the low end of the company’s guidance is worse than what analysts were anticipating.

“It appears that nothing is sacred at Ford,” Joe Spak, an analyst at RBC Capital Markets, wrote Wednesday in a report to clients.

Margin Mishaps

Ford’s automotive business earned just a 5 percent profit margin last year, less than its average since 2010 of about 6 percent, according to Shanks. The company hasn’t achieved its 8 percent goal in any year since the global recession, he said.

The automaker flagged its expectation for weaker earnings two days after Executive Chairman Bill Ford said the company founded by his grandfather is going “all in” on electric cars. Ford kicked off this week’s Detroit auto show by pledging to invest $11 billion to bring 40 electrified vehicles to market by 2022.

Hackett, 62, last year took over an automaker that lacks a model to compete with cars like GM’s Chevrolet Bolt or Tesla’s Model S. On Tuesday, Hackett rejected the notion that Ford is behind.

“Ford is going to aim ahead to where it has to be,” he said at the conference Automotive News World Congress in Detroit. “Because it has to be ahead in order for people to believe our strategy isn’t about catching up to somebody else.”

Executives did, however, acknowledge that Ford has to change course. That will include cutting car lines that no longer sell well.

“We know we must evolve to be even more competitive and narrow our full line of nameplates in all markets, to a more focused lineup that delivers stronger, more profitable growth, with better returns,” Jim Farley, Ford’s president of global markets, said in a statement.

The biggest factors contributing to Ford’s expectation for lower profit this year are the rising price of commodities, including steel and aluminum, and adverse effects from currency exchange rates, in part due to Brexit. Those costs represent a $1.6 billion headwind to earnings this year, Shanks said.

Prolonged Payback

The profit forecast prolongs the payback from spending on autonomous vehicles and other technology that Hackett’s predecessor, Fields, had been promising to investors before his ouster in May. Profit will rebound over time, Shanks said in a phone interview.

“We certainly see us on a path toward the margins that we have been targeting for a long time,” Shanks said, referring to the 8 percent target. “Not this year or next year, but within the next several years.”

In addition to electrifying its lineup, Ford is reallocating investment toward crossovers and rugged off-roaders amid slumping demand for passenger cars in its home market. The Lincoln luxury brand, already highly reliant on models like the Navigator, will orient toward SUVs in the future.

Ford projects it will boost the share of its sales from SUVs by 10 percentage points — all at cars’ expense — over the next couple years to cash in on more lucrative models that American consumers want.

“We’ll have more utilities,” Shanks said. “We will be simplifying, if you will, our participation in the car segments to move into sub-segments that have more margin and are more attractive.”

GM surprised Wall Street earlier Tuesday by predicting steady profit this year to be followed by another earnings jump in 2019. A redesigned Chevrolet Silverado pickup and fresh crop of crossovers are helping fund CEO Mary Barra’s ambitious plans to put robotaxis on the road in a ride-sharing fleet next year and roll out 20 all-electric models by 2023.

Ford also announced it will start being more transparent about its own bets on mobility. Within the slides Shanks presented, the company disclosed it lost about $300 million in this business last year.

    Elaine Tanner: one athlete’s 40 -year convalescence from Olympic heartbreak

    0

    The 17 -year-old Canadian swimmer was a great hope for amber in 1968 but she could only finagle silver-tongued, and found the pain of defeat virtually too much to bear

    On a cold, rainy February morning in 1988, Elaine Tanner was alone. She sat on the jagged rock-and-rolls overlooking the Burrard Inlet in West Vancouver, staring out at the sea. The movements enticed the status of women in despair.

    I felt like there was no hope, she told the Guardian. Nowhere to go.

    Twenty years had overtaken since Mighty Mouse as the 5ft 3in Tanner was dubbed by a nation that idolized her stepped onto the starting blocks with gold in her eyes. She was Canadas greatest hope for a float golden honour at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics, but that never materialized. After two decades of anguish over is inadequate to win that honour, Tanner ogled out at the liquid. The tide produced brutal brandishes up onto the boulders below. She meditated what it would be like to dive into the water one final day, to be wiped up in the current and pulled under, never to be seen again.

    She pictured her own death. Somehow, it seemed like the perfect route for a former dive champion to go. The little girl who had invested countless hours chasing an Olympic dream would become the persecuted ex-athlete who satisfied her extinction under the billows of the western Canada waters.

    She thought it would be an appropriate outcome to her story.

    ***

    In the weeks leading up to the 1968 Olympics, there was talk about Mighty Mouse paying three golds, and the happening that seemed to be the most wonderful pot was the 100 m backstroke, Tanners specialty. She knew the tournament well, having reigned most of the field for a good part of two years. Kaye Hall, a 17 -year-old American who had been a adversary since they were both 12, was among the challengers. Tanner couldnt recollect a period when shed lost to her.

    When the final arrived on 23 October 1968, Tanner put on the impedes and began to feel the pressure of a commonwealth weighing on her shoulders. Abruptly this hasten find different than any other. One single ponder swam through her head.

    What if I fail?

    She felt her muscles tense up. Her body was beginning to shake, and powerlessness overtook her, like all the fortitude had been exhausted out of her. Horror swept over her. The pressing was weeping her down.

    Tanner tried to push everything there is away as the artillery went off and she dived into the irrigate. The brand-new Canadian national swimming coach had advised her to start off slowly, to save her persuasivenes for the knock a strategy with which she didnt exactly agree. Hall was among the opponents who got off to a huge induce at the make-up, and Tanner could sense that she might not be able to even out certain differences. She churned with all her might, closing the crack greatly down the stretch, but she ranged out of pool.

    Hall finished a half-second before Tanner, in a world-record period of 1:06.2, the tips of her fingers stroking the wall just before Tanner acquired it there. She came up for air, find the severity of win. Canada gasped in disappointment.

    She climbed out of the consortium, dripping soak, and did attention linked with Anne Walton, her best friend on the Canadian swim team. They approached each other, and Tanner fell into Waltons arms.

    The medal ceremony, the news conference it all went by in a blur. In the years that followed she would remember nothing of it, merely that she was wandering around in a trance-like state until a humanity named Harry Jerome whisked her out of the building. Jerome knew all too well what Tanner was going through, having descended short of Olympic anticipations as a favourite in the 100 m in the 1964 Tokyo Games. He took her out for a liquor, the first booze that had ever stroked her lips. It was Jeromes way of saying: Its OK. This is a moment to celebrate. Dont be ashamed about prevailing a silver medal.

    The gesture took away Tanners pain for a little while, but the celebration ended there. The headline in one Canadian newspaper the next day was: Tanner loses gold.

    The silver medal molted earned in the 100 m backstroke discontinued a 40 -year medal drought for Canadas swim team, and she was the first Canadian lady to pay a award in swimming. But nothing of that mattered.

    In the days that followed, Tanner had gone on to win another silver medal and a bronze, stirring her the first female swimmer in Canadian Olympic history to take home three medals.

    And yet all anyone remembered was that shed lost something on gold.

    Tanner recalled from Mexico City to her mothers Vancouver home. But even those quarterss provisioned little comfort. The rapport and carry shed hoped to find there was absent, replaced by the following paragraph regret. In one of the only communications she “wouldve been” have with her mothers about the Olympic performance, Elaine Tanner afterward recalled being told: Well, it wasnt very fun for us, you know.

    She left home soon afterwards, lost and distraught, with nowhere to make-up. Her life became a downward coiling, ended only momentarily by lights of light-footed. She married in her early 20 s and had two children, but the wedlock evaporated nine years later. Tanner and her husband, Ian Nahrgang, divorced in 1980, each agreeing to take imprisonment of one child. Nahrgang and their son, Scott, endeavoured to Prince George, a nine-hour drive away. Their two-year-old daughter, Shannon, was so forlorn at being separated from her friend that Tanner had to make a choice.

    She called her ex-husband Ian, who refused to let Scott leave home. And so Elaine attained what she would come to call the hardest decision of “peoples lives”. She cast her daughter north, to Prince George, so that Shannon would be reunited with her brother and papa. I exclaimed pails, Tanner would afterwards recall.

    Alone again, Tanners life made a brand-new low-pitched. She traveled in all the regions of the Canadian country, searching for something she couldnt quite mention. There were other followers to come in and out of their own lives, but nothing of them put around for long. Molted interviewed for jobs in retail sales, in boasts market, selling encyclopaedium, as a cocktail waitress and a recreation chairman; no one would hire her. She designed sports apparel and a line of jewelry, but couldnt come up with the money to get started. Tanner couldnt find any kind of steady piece and was losing her will to live.

    Along the style, Tanner shed herself of the Olympic honours that seemed to weigh her down for most of early adulthood. Theyd been stashed in a sewing kit in the back of her vehicle. She gladly handed them over to the British Columbia Hall of Fame, freeing herself of the physical remembers of her failure.

    To be honest, it was almost baggage, she said. It wasnt really helping me to move my life on in a positive tack. I didnt got a problem going rid of them.

    Tanner was weaving through life, a life that was quickly forgetting all entail. By the spring of 1988, around the time of her 37 th birthday, Tanner acquired herself sitting on the rocks staring out at a body of water, ready to give up.

    She merely couldnt bring herself to dive in.

    Something inside of me, she remembered, it was like a little tone: Elaine, theres a intellect for everything. I didnt know what that represented, but there was a little tone that said: One period, youll understand; it will make sense.

    She turned away from the liquid, stumbling up the rocks and back to her car. She had nowhere to go and nothing to do, but Tanner opened the door, sat down in the moves accommodate and started the engine.

    ***

    A few months legislated. It was the summer of 1988, and she reluctantly agreed to go on a blind date.

    Thats when Tanner met a being appointed John Watt, his own life serving as a plain consider on emotional hurting. His father has only died from cancer before his mother remarried and was killed by a drunkard operator. Not long after that, Watt and a police officer learnt the body of his only brother, who kill herself. Whatever stability Watt found in the aftermath was splintered by a divorce and a series of business ventures that were on the verge of collapsing when he satisfied Tanner.

    They didnt exactly hit it off. Watt was attracted to her smile and nature sees, but he admitted that part of what drew him to her was a connection he felt to the sorrow that extended off of her. She was extremely in pain and ache, he remembered. She was smiling,[ but] with my background, I could see through it.

    He watched Tanner pick at a muffin with her fingernails, as if she was savoring each morsel and trying to make it last longer. When that appointment was over, Watt peeled off two $100 proposals and sided them to the pretty wife with the pathetic eyes. Tanner took the money, then clambered onto a beat-up 10 -speed bicycle and pedaled off. Watt watched her go.

    I appeared sorry for her at the time, he recalled. I truly had a lot of empathy for her. She was very thin. To be quite honest, I was quite to be concerned about her welfare.

    They went on a few more dates, and Tanner began to open up to him. Watt experienced himself amazing: I dont know if I requirement this baggage on top of my own.

    They floated apart after a few years, eventually coming back together in San Francisco. So inaugurated a pilgrimage that took them from California to Colorado to Maine. From the United States to Eastern Canada to British Columbia.

    They married in 1993, but she was still unable to find work or much stability. The sadness that had penetrated so much of her adulthood continued to follow her like a dark cloud.

    Then one sunny daylight in 2011, as Tanners 60 th birthday approached, she was driving alone in Ontario when a familiar lyric, The Impossible Dream, came on the radio.

    To dream the impossible nightmare/ To fight the unbeatable foe/ To bear the unbearable sorrow/ To lope where the heroic do not go

    The song, became famous by Frank Sinatra, had been a favourite of hers in the summer of the mid-1 960 s, when, as a girl, she used to train in the swimming pool while dreaming of the Olympics. It was as if Tanner had traveled in time, and she could vividly remember what it had been was ready to chase a dream.

    This is my quest/ To follow that adept/ No matter how futile/ No matter how far…

    It dawned on her, in that moment, that molted spent so much era chasing a golden medal that shed forgotten that there were other reinforces out there. There were other searches, so to speak. Quest beyond gold. The motto popped into Tanners manager in that time, and she knew that it meant something.

    When she lastly congregated up with Watt that day, Tanner was in tears. They were weepings of hope.

    ***

    Tanner is better now. Shes not perfect, but shes better. Shes saw hope, and thats a great place to be after years and years of straying around in despair.

    Shes a grandmother, and her adult children have allowed her back into their lives. She endured a 2011 car disintegrate, in which she was caught inside her vehicle while Watt, her husband of 18 years, raced to help young victims in a nearby school bus. Shes written a childrens notebook and is working on a memoir about her footpath toward gold. She even has a website, called, of course, Quest Beyond Gold.

    Tanner appears back at her pilgrimage without any gumption of dejection. She is open to telling her fib to persons who expects, despite her private nature, and shes espoused the struggles.

    Losing may have killed her fantasy, but it didnt kill her. We all follow up challenges and strifes in “peoples lives”, she says. It doesnt matter what you do, we all face loss. Its part of life. Its more what the hell are you do with it than the misery. Thats why I wanted to share my story.

    A few years ago, Tanner was excavating through one of her suitcases when she stumbled upon two of her Olympic medallions, which she had forgotten had been returned to her by the British Columbia Hall of Fame. She barely recognise them.

    You know, John, this isnt me any more, she recalls telling him. Ive let it go. I let play start. Let auction them off, then call whatever is raised to do something good.

    Watt concurred, and the medallions were sold, along with a swimming trunks from Tanners Olympic year. The man who purchased the items, a retired dentist, aimed up donating them to the Swimming Hall of Fame.

    Soon enough, an amazing thing happened. When Tanner gazed back on her Olympic experience, she saw success instead of disappointment. The public attitude soon followed, as the years faded the recognitions of misplaced gold and history began retelling a narration of the 17 -year-old girl who produced dwelling three medals “the worlds largest” embellished swimmer in its own history of Canadian float to that point.

    Now I can look back, and Im so proud of what I achieved, and what I fulfilled, she says. Its certainly an important message.

    One that shes finally ready to spread.

    Five months after President Donald Trump tweeted a doctored video of himself beating up CNN in WWE-style, his latest attack on the network was a little more subtle. But only a little.

    On Sunday morning, Trump retweeted this image in which he’s seated in a limo on his car phone with the word “WINNING” written across the top. But if you look closely at the bottom of his shoe, you’ll see the bloody insult.

    That’s a blood-spattered CNN logo. In case you need a closer look…

    A few minutes later, Trump blasted what he calls “fake news” and “fake polls” (as Vox noted this week, he has the lowest-rated poll numbers of any first-year president in history).

    But is Trump spending the morning of Christmas Eve watching the network he professes to hate? It’s possible.

    It also appears Trump is not winning the battle when people are asked about who to trust more. In October, a poll showed that people were trusting the media more and trusting Trump less.
