What’s Sutton Foster Up to in the Younger Season Two Premiere?

first_imgAnd we’re back! At the start of season two of TV Land’s Younger, Liza (two-time Tony winner Sutton Foster) adds one more person to her “Do Not Tell” list while navigating her relationship with Josh (Nico Tortorella), who as you’ll recall, now knows Liza is 40 and not 26. Let’s take a look back at what went down in the January 13 two-part premiere.SEASON 2, EPISODE 1Emoji UpdateAs you can obviously see from the above emoji, Liza’s college-age daughter Caitlin returns from India, and Liza decides not to fill her in on her “Tootsie with age” scheme. Meanwhile, at Empirical Press, Kelsey (Hilary Duff) unsuccessfully pitches a book about blowjobs. In a Debi Mazar meta-moment, Maggie shows off her Italian knowledge and hosts a wine tasting. Liza leaved to meet up with Josh at a bar and gets stood up. Diana (Miriam Shor) and Charles (Peter Hermann) dine at Bobby Flay’s restaurant to win a book deal with the celebrity chef, but makes a mess of the evening by chipping a tooth. Caitlin reveals that she got a tattoo from a hot tattoo artist not knowing it was (gasp!) Josh. Small world. Liza confronts/makes out with him…as her daughter secretly spies on them.Biggest OMG MomentYikes! We hate it when we kiss our hot tattoo artist boyfriend and our daughter, who just got some ink from him, is watching from the window. Ew.Millennial GlossaryThe Three Dots: (noun) The portentous, fickle animation that pops up in iMessage when the other person (in this case, Josh) is typing. Or…when the other person is thinking? We’re not sure. Moment That Made Us Ask:Why does Liza continue to wait for Josh at the bar for so long?! Yes, he eventually texts a cryptic, punctuation-less apology, but only after Liza sits (mostly) alone for two hours and is berated by an impatient fellow bar patron (and former vlogger) Ryann Redmond! You know Reeno Sweeney wouldn’t stand for that. What the f*ck, Sutton Foster?!Diana’s Statement Jewelry Update!Miriam Shor made her entrance this season without a power necklace, but she more than made up for it in a later scene with this piece of chainmail around her neck. That’s right: Diana Trout steps into her kingdom (her office) with actual medieval armor. Wait, is this Galavant? Are we recapping Galavant now?SEASON 2, EPISODE 2Emoji UpdateCaitlin, after catching her mom with Josh, leaves to stay with her dad. Liza nails ‘90s trivia, but after imbibing her boozy prize, Josh isn’t sober enough for sexy time. The gang goes to a launch party for Lauren’s (Molly Bernard) new company, at which Kelsey gets an offer at a competing firm, Maggie and Liza play ping pong and Josh leaves after being interrogated about their relationship status by Liza’s friends. But before he and Liza can talk it out, Liza has to drop off a manuscript at Charles’ apartment. Maggie and Lauren continue their May-December fling. At Empirical, Kelsey gets promoted (after Liza intervenes) and aks Liza to join her team.Biggest OMG MomentMaggie and Lauren’s drug-fueled tryst from last season was not a one-time thing! And now Lauren’s roaming around half-naked post-coitus like some millennial Desiree Armfeldt. No judgment!Millennial GlossarySick Lit: (noun) A genre of young adult fiction in which a prominent character is terminally ill. Think The Fault in Our Stars or, according to the world of Younger, the Rob Olive bestseller #ImDying.Moment That Made Us Ask:Liza, what makes you think Diana Trout is going to put up with your equestrian wordplay? “I bet Seabiscuit would love a Gallup poll” is the sort of joke that people who write that Waitress has “a cast to pie for” would find hysterical, but Diana has more important things to do. Like wear statement necklaces. What the f*ck, Sutton Foster?!Diana’s Statement Jewelry Update!Imagine having a shower mat made of sapphire. Now, imagine wrapping it around your neck. Congratulations, you have Diana’s statement necklace of the week! Pairs perfectly with a gold cuff, a dismissive eyeroll and Dove Nourishing Body Wash. View Commentslast_img read more

Asset managers need a single point of access into a network of managed-account sponsors

first_imgWant to make life easier for asset managers? A single point of access into a network of managed-account sponsors allows asset managers to move effortlessly across multiple sponsor platforms. This approach to traditional, separately managed accounts and model portfolio distribution will help them easily implement, manage and monitor investment strategy and decisions.Without this modernization, asset managers may continue to cope with the challenge of having several open accounts on their screens, each requiring separate login and password information and each in danger of timing out while asset managers work. Imagine how frustrating the same scenario would be when reconciling all of your personal accounts – checking, savings, credit union, multiple credit cards – with several screens open on your laptop and all with separate logins.Asset managers, whose model portfolio or strategy is distributed to multiple wrap sponsors, must currently implement investment strategy changes made on their home platform across a multitude of sponsor platforms. Moving among screens with different navigations, logins and behaviors is just the first hurdle to overcome. When one sponsor is filled, managing rotating trades across sponsors and routing trades through to the next one can also be an issue. Or, if rotation is not needed, asset managers typically must use manual processes on each platform to get trades completed across all sponsor platforms. The headaches mount when you consider disparate file layouts and the need to download, potentially translate and upload trades.multiple sponsor platforms continue reading » 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Plea for Tips, Peace After 2 Brentwood Teens Slain

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Suffolk County police urged tipsters to share information on who murdered two teenage girls in Brentwood this week while the victims’ families pleaded for an end to gang violence suspected to be involved.Friends and family set up a makeshift memorial with candles and birthday balloons near where the bodies of Kayla Cuevas, 16, and Nisa Mickens—who was slain the day before her 16th birthday—were found. Police are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to an arrest. Both teens, who were beaten to death, were from Brentwood.“This is an act of savagery in our community and we need to work together,” Suffolk County Police Commissioner Timothy Sini told reporters during a news conference Thursday in Brentwood. “These are some of the worst wounds I’ve seen.”He offered no motive as to what led to the tragic slayings. The two girls, who were lifelong friends, died of blunt forced trauma, the commissioner said.Mickens was discovered on Stahley Street, adjacent to a elementary school, on Tuesday evening. After receiving a tip, investigators found Cuevas’ body Wednesday evening nearby in the backyard of a home up against a fence in a wooded area off Ray Court. Cuevas was originally thought to be missing.Sini said that area had been searched after Mickens’ body was found, but how extensively the wooded area was scrutinized he didn’t know. He acknowledged that Cuevas’ body should’ve been discovered earlier. That investigators initially missed her lifeless body, however, was “not for a lack of effort,” Sini said.The police department had already reached out to community leaders and school officials, as well as federal law enforcement partners, he added.As family, friends and strangers alike poured onto the street to offer condolences, Rob Mickens, Nisa’s father, thanked the community for their support. He grew emotional when considering what the perpetrators had taken from him.“I’m supposed to walk my daughter down the aisle. They took that away,” he said. “I’m supposed to have a Sweet 16 dance with my daughter. They took that away.”“We should not be here right now getting ready to put our babies into the grave,” Mickens added.Mickens and Cuevas had been best friend since they day they met, finding joy on the basketball court, family members said. Last Christmas, they each bought dog tags individually engraved with the words “Ride” and “Die”—a testament to their bond.Standing just feet from where her daughter’s body was found, Elizabeth Alvarado gave an impassioned plea for the violence to stop.“How many more lives do they need to take?” she said, her voice cracking. “How much more blood do they really need to have on the street? I mean, my daughter’s blood is on the street, it’s stained right there.”“When is it going to finish?”Homicide Squad detectives are continuing the investigation and ask anyone with information on the slayings to call them at 631-852-6392 or anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All callers will remain confidential.last_img read more

first_imgBy Kayon RaynorKINGSTON,(Reuters)- JAMAICA’S anti-doping authority has withdrawn its appeal over the one-year ban received by West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell for breaches of the whereabouts rule, according to court documents seen by Reuters.Russell was given a one-year ban on January 31 after he failed to file the necessary paperwork on his availability for drug testing three times in 2015, which constituted a failed test according to World Anti-Doping Authority (WADA) rules.The Jamaican Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) appealed against the one-year ban and was seeking a two-year suspension at a hearing scheduled to begin on May 8 in Kingston.According to the documents seen by Reuters the anti-doping body has withdrawn their appeal.Russell’s lawyers, headed by Patrick Foster, had also launched a cross-appeal to overturn the ban, but that action was also withdrawn the documents showed.Neither Foster, nor JADCO’s attorneys were immediately available for comment.JADCO, however, have called a media conference for Monday.last_img read more

Chuntell `Thunder’ Martin ready to roll as new season dawns

first_img…set sights on playing for WI womenBy Frederick HalleyTORONTO, Canada — Chuntell Martin is nicknamed “Thunder” not only for being fearless in life but also for her ferocious batting style.This was quite evident in last year’s women’s final when she produced an innings of immense quality to help Kaisoca Cricket Club women’s team dethrone defending champions Superstars in the Scarborough Cricket Association (SCA) grand finale played at the Ashtonbee ground here.In a brutal display, Martin blasted a stroke-filled 80 as Kaisoca upstaged favourites Superstars in the second edition of the tournament to claim the Caribbean Wave-sponsored winners’ trophy. Her innings, which also earned her the Most Valuable Player award for her team, included 10 fours and five towering sixes.Born and raised in St Vincent & The Grenadines, the 24-year-old Martin harbours hopes of still playing for the West Indies women’s team despite residing in Toronto.In an exclusive interview with Chronicle Sport, the stoutly-built no-nonsense opener, who also bowls medium pace, disclosed that she had a passion for cricket at a very young age since her family, neighbours and friends were all fascinated with the sunshine game.According to Martin, she has an unending love for cricket and is aiming to make a successful career out of it. “My dream is to represent the West Indies and if possible Team Canada. I feel that I have the necessary potential and once I get that chance to represent the West Indies female team it will be a memory of a lifetime.”Martin explained that she was on the verge of representing St Vincent & The Grenadines but migration to Canada hampered her chances. She however continued to pursue the game once in Canada and have played for several clubs, including Malvern before joining Kaisoca Cricket Club in 2011.Following her match-winning performance in last year’s final, Martin was all set and eager to face the MCC women’s team who were scheduled to take on their SCA counterparts in a feature game. That game was however called off by Cricket Canada just a few days before it was scheduled to take place, a decision that not only irked the SCA but also the squad which had undergone rigorous training.A disappointed Martin described how she was ready and prepared to put on a show. “I slept and slept and could not wait for that day to come, then all of a sudden I received emails saying that the game was off. It broke my heart. This is the just a small amount of discrimination the Scarborough women cricketers face…”Despite this setback, Martin is vowing to perform even stronger when the 2017 women’s tournament kicks off on Sunday. “I feel great and I am hoping to bounce back this season, coming harder and stronger and ready to defend our title.”Martin pointed out that last year’s victory was a total team effort and her team is capable of repeating the feat this year. “We are coming out with passion and will be giving it everything we’ve got. We are coming one hundred per cent stronger than we were last summer.”Martin disclosed that preparations are in full swing and after completing indoor practices, they have recently started outdoors at L’Amoreaux ground in Scarborough. “We are doing some running and hitting the gym to ensure we are fit ready to defend our title.”Questioned on the challenges facing women’s cricket in Canada, Martin stressed that unity among the clubs are extremely important while sponsorship is also a major bugbear. She also feels possible tours should be arranged with teams outside of Canada “so that way we can develop greater cricketing skills and knowledge of the game.” She’s also hoping that the West Indies may tour Canada with a view to playing against them.Martin has assured that come June 4, the “Thunder” is all set to roll.last_img read more
