At the end of Marvel's Comic-Con presentation last year, the studio finally made it official, revealing, after months of rumors, that Brie Larson will play Carol Danvers in the highly-anticipated Captain Marvel movie.

"I had to consult with the Air Force yesterday, and I brought up the age issue, and they said that it was not out of the realm of possibility, that somebody could be very accomplished in the Air Force between the age of 28-34 and that you could go very far within that time.

In November 2019, comedian and Oscar-winning actress Mo'Nique sued the company, alleging race- and gender-based discrimination over the pay she was offered for a stand-up special.

When American friends ask for an explanation, I encourage them to reflect on the last time they bought groceries at their neighborhood Safeway. In the U.S. there is almost always a racial, economic, cultural, and educational chasm between the consumer and the check-out staff that is difficult if not impossible to bridge. In Canada, the experience is quite different. One interacts if not as peers, certainly as members of a wider community. The reason for this is very simple. The checkout person may not share your level of affluence, but they know that you know that they are getting a living wage because of the unions. And they know that you know that their kids and yours most probably go to the same neighborhood public school. Third, and most essential, they know that you know that if their children get sick, they will get exactly the same level of medical care not only of your children but of those of the prime minister. These three strands woven together become the fabric of Canadian … [Read more...] about The Unraveling of America
In the near-term, we want to maintain a low density in our offices for those employees whose jobs do require them to be on site. We also want to provide additional clarity to everyone, allowing you to plan for your own childcare, eldercare and other personal considerations.
