  • 1 week ‘Harriet,’ the first film about Tubman, premieres in Toronto Beaumontenterprise -Movies
    TORONTO (AP) — Hard as it may be to believe, "Harriet" is the first feature film about Harriet Tubman. Kasi Lemmons' movie about the Underground Railroad leader premiered Tuesday night at the Toronto International Film Festival where festival director Cameron Bailey, introducing the film, noted the cinematic injustice of Tubman only now making it to the big screen. "There are 30 films about Gen. Custer," said Bailey. "This is the first film about Harriet Tubman." "Harriet," starring 32-year-old British actress Cynthia Erivo, presents a younger, more vibrant picture of Tubman, whose accomplishments have often been entombed in middle-school history books. ... more
  • 1 week New film explores legacy of Puerto Rican actor Raúl Juliá Beaumontenterprise -Movies
    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Members of Generation X may know Raúl Juliá for his energetic and playful role as Gomez Addams in the 1991 movie adaptation of "The Addams Family." Others may think of Juliá in his critically acclaimed role in the 1985 "Kiss of the Spider Woman" as revolutionary Valentin Arregui. But to actors like Edward James Olmos, Rita Moreno, Andy Garcia, John Leguizamo, and Benicio del Toro, the man many of them knew as Raulito served as a mentor, an advocate and a groundbreaker who paved the way to success for a generation of Latino performers. The influential ... more
  • 1 week Go ahead, dive inside the mind of Bill Gates. But strap in. Beaumontenterprise -Tech
    NEW YORK (AP) — There are some things about Bill Gates that are unremarkable. His favorite food: hamburgers. His favorite animal: the dog. But a few minutes into a new TV series on Gates reveals a fascinating insight. The Microsoft co-founder and billionaire philanthropist is asked what his worst fear is. It's not family tragedy or personal pain. "I don't want my brain to stop working," he responds. That formidable gray matter is fittingly the subject of "Inside Bill's Brain: Decoding Bill Gates," a new three-part documentary on Netflix from Academy Award-winning director Davis Guggenheim. It starts Sept. 20. A ... more

    ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — Turkey's highest court on Wednesday began considering an appeal by Wikipedia aiming to reverse the Turkish government's more than two-year ban on the online encyclopedia. Turkey blocked Wikipedia in April 2017, accusing it of being part of a "smear campaign" against Turkey, after the website refused to remove content that allegedly portrayed Turkey as a country supporting the Islamic State group and terrorist organizations. Access to Wikipedia and all its language editions was blocked under a law that allows the government to ban websites it deems pose a national security threat.

    (The Conversation is an independent and nonprofit source of news, analysis and commentary from academic experts.) Catherine Brinkley, University of California, Davis (THE CONVERSATION) Tens of millions of Americans go to bed hungry at some point every year. While poverty is the primary culprit, some blame food insecurity on the lack of grocery stores in low-income neighborhoods. That’s why cities, states and national leaders including former first lady Michelle Obama made eliminating so-called “food deserts” a priority in recent years. This prompted some of the biggest U.S. retailers, such as Walmart, SuperValu and Walgreens, to promise to open or expand ... more

  • 1 week Apple takes on Netflix with a $5-a-month streaming service Beaumontenterprise -Tech
    CUPERTINO, Calif. (AP) — Apple is finally taking on Netflix with its own streaming television service and, uncharacteristically for the company, offering it at a bargain price — $5 a month beginning on Nov. 1. Walt Disney Co. is launching its own assault on Netflix the same month, for just $7. It may be sheer coincidence that the cost of paying for both Apple and Disney subscriptions will still be a dollar less than Netflix's main plan, priced at $13 a month. But the intent to disrupt Netflix's huge lead in the streaming business couldn't be clearer. Apple delivered the ... more
