What’s Now

One year ago, the second edition of Posture magazine, a publication that prides itself in the “creative exploration of identity” and elevating the work of some of the rising queer artists in navigating the modern art world, was released. Now Posture's third issue, “The Boss Issue,” focuses on creatives across the spectrum of queer identity who are committed to “making it” career-wise on their own terms. Posture founder Winter Mendelson told The Huffington Post: “I wanted to create an issue dedicated to people who are working to ‘succeed' — ie: create personal brands, build companies, become widely known artists, produce massive projects, etc — to show that there are a lot of women of color and queer/trans folks who do wish to ‘make it' so to speak, on their own terms or within existing industries. On the one hand we have people who rebel against capitalism as much as they can, and some who want to infiltrate problematic systems in order to inspire change. Both goals are valid in my opinion, and The Boss Issue is about celebrating artists, designers, and activists seeking to make global impact.” Check out some images from this issue of Posture below, as well as a more extensive interview with Mendelson. The Huffington Post: How has Posture evolved since its inception? Winter Mendelson: This issue definitely signifies our evolution in ideology, content, and quality. When Posture launched as a blog in 2013, it was actually a blog for “queer women,” whereas now we take a holistic and inclusive approach to identity. I started to realize the problematic nature with gendered language, but also I think a lot of Posture's evolution was related to my personal identity. I grew to realize that I was genderqueer/nonbinary (versus lesbian and/or female-identified), and I continued to meet more and more people like me, so I wanted to work on a project that reflected reality as well as what I believe to be the future. Our tagline is “the creative exploration of identity,” and what that means is that we feature creative people whose work addresses what is means to survive, dismantle, and/or succeed in a society that is created for the hetero, cis white male patriarchy. Posture is purposefully inclusive and not focused on particular labels. After putting out two print issues, our network widened a lot, and we were able to work with so many talented people for Issue 03 (The Boss Issue). I have a two-person core creative team comprised of Phil Gomez, our Fashion Art Director, and Asher Torres, our Photo Art Director, and having a talented and dedicated team has impacted the brand significantly. We're still a small grassroots kind of magazine, but are able to make magic happen with minimal resources. We went from printing 200 copies to being nationally distributed, and I am beyond excited to put important stories and perspectives on bookshelves across the world. Up to this point the print has been the centerpiece of the brand, but we've got some big plans for digital as [...]

Lionsgate's rebooted “Power Rangers” is launching with a solid $40.5 million this weekend while Sony's space-thriller “Life” showed only moderate traction with $12.6 million. Warner Bros.' action-comedy “Chips” opened with a disappointing $7.6 million at 2,464 sites. The “Beauty and the Beast” weekend is one for the record books as the fourth-largest second weekend of all time, trailing only “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” at $149 million, “Jurassic World” at $106 million, and “Marvel's The Avengers” at $103 million. “Beauty and the Beast,” starring Emma Watson as Belle and Dan Stevens as the Beast, declined just 49 percent from its opening weekend, which was the seventh-best ever. And after just 10 days in North American theaters, “Beauty and the Beast” is already 55th on the all-time domestic list at $317 million. It's the fourth-largest 10-day domestic total ever. “Beauty and the Beast,” along with Fox's “Logan,” Warner's “Kong: Skull Island,” and Universal's “Get Out,” have led a charge over the past month that has given the domestic box office a major boost. According to comScore, March box office has already hit $1 billion for the first time ― with five days left in the month. “March has become a rockstar of a month and in particular 2017 enjoyed a perfect storm of new hits and strong February releases that showed amazing staying power like ‘Get Out' and ‘The Lego Batman Movie,' “ said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst with comScore. “The cumulative allure of an impressive slate of films conjured up a flat out great month in theaters, generating impressive momentum as the industry charges into what promises to be a furious April and a smashing summer movie season that kicks off in May with ‘Guardians of the Galaxy 2.' “ Last year's March set a record with $948.8 million domestically, led by Disney's “Zootopia” ($255.9 million for the month) and Warner Bros.' “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” ($209.1 million). “Power Rangers,” a re-imagining of the 1990's television show about five teenage superheroes, outperformed expectations of about $30 million at 3,693 locations. The film earned an A CinemaScore from customers and A+ from the 30 percent of moviegoers under 18. The audience was 60 percent male. The cast features Becky G as the Yellow Ranger, Ludi Lin as the Black Ranger, Naomi Scott as the Pink Ranger, Dacre Montgomery as the Red Ranger, and R.J. Cyler as the Blue Ranger. Elizabeth Banks plays the evil alien witch Rita Repulsa. The movie centers on the origins of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, a group of high schoolers given extraterrestrial powers who unite to save the world. Lionsgate and Haim Saban announced plans in 2014 for a live-action movie based on Saban's “Power Rangers” property as the first film in a franchise; Lionsgate CEO Jon Feltheimer has asserted [...]

Sky Sports News presenter Kirsty Gallacher, 41, shares her health secretsKirsty Gallacher Strictly Come DancingTV star and mum-of-two Kirsty Gallacher, 41, definitely has one of the best bods in the business! We caught up with her to find out exactly how she does it… KIRSTY’S STATS HEIGHT: 5ft 6in WEIGHT: 8 and a half stone DRESS SIZE: 6-8 Hey Kirsty! How do you keep fit? My favourite way to work out is with my trainer, Mel. He’s trained Rio Ferdinand and Gabby Logan. I like using weights. I like resistance training and circuits with weights- I like that kind of intensity. When I finished Strictly Come Dancing, I was quite skinny. It’s a lot of cardio and I was exhausted – my body was probably eating away my muscle really. The key thing was to train to develop my muscles again. Strictly Come Dancing 2015 Kirsty Gallacher Do you eat anything before you train? Mel always tells me to have a protein shake in a smoothie. What do you wear to workout? My Proskins gear. I love the way it’s like a second skin. Training gear can be quite bulky and annoying. This is really like easy to train in and you don’t even know you’ve got it on! MORE: What Chloe Madeley REALLY eats to get this body! Have you got a favourite body part? Probably my arms because I don’t have to work too hard on them. Naturally I’m quite developed in that area. I think my mom has good arms- luckily I inherited those! On Twitter, some people comment and say I’m too muscly but I think it’s a compliment. You’re never going to please everyone and I’d rather look that I work hard then not. I like strong looking women like Madonna. What’s your guilty food pleasure? I do like the odd curry, and I do like the odd pizza, or pasta or Italian meal. I’m not a pudding person, I don’t eat sweets. How often do you have those? I think that a cheat meal or a cheat day once a week is good for you. I’ve got no set day. I think if you deny yourself all the time you’re going to want it all the time and binge on it. We couldn’t agree more! My mum always said that you should try to have everything in moderation. I think if you’re working hard in the gym, you owe it to yourself to eat what you feel you need to eat. Kirsty’s food diary Now’s expert sports nutritionist Ollie Frost gives his verdict on her daily diet BREAKFAST: Protein shake with smoothie. Porridge with fresh fruit. OLLIE SAYS: Eating porridge every morning boosts energy and helps lower cholesterol. It may also help prevent heart disease and some cancers.  Adding in a protein supplement will help increase the feeling of fullness. Cals: 480 LUNCH: Poached eggs on brown toast. OLLIE SAYS: Eggs are cheap, portable and one of the most nutritious foods in the world. Eggs contain omega 3 fatty acids to help fight inflammation in the body. A standard egg contains 6g of protein so a two-egg combo is a perfect protein hit for [...]

Hosted by Reynolds' son and Fisher's brother, Todd Fisher, the event ― or show, according to Todd, since “my mother didn't like memorials and funerals” ― was held at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Los Angeles. Attendees included actors Griffin Dunne, Ruta Lee and Dan Aykroyd, who told a sweet story about his former fiancée Carrie, calling her a “beloved showboat.” According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 90-minute ceremony also featured montages, set to music by “Star Wars” composer John Williams, highlighting Reynolds' and Fisher's careers, intimate family photos, interviews and humanitarian work. There was even a memorable “beepy” appearance by R2-D2 and performances by the Gay Men's Chorus of Los Angeles and tap dancers from Debbie Reynolds Dance Studios. And, although he wasn't present, “I'm Here to Let You Go,” an original song by Fisher's close friend James Blunt, made its debut during a photo montage. Fisher died on Dec. 27 at the age of 60 following a heart attack. The next day, her beloved mother Reynolds died at 84. “When Carrie died, my mother decided to change her plans a bit,” Todd told the audience at the memorial. “My mother always said to me, ‘I never want to go to my daughter's funeral service. I would like to be buried with Carrie.' I didn't know she was going to leave us that very next day and when she looked at me to ask permission to leave, she said she wanted to be with Carrie, and she closed her eyes and went to sleep. It was a beautiful exit.” Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, Tom Hanks, Tracy Morgan, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Michael Moore, Padma Lakshmi and a whole host of other stars are teaming up for Stand for Rights: A Benefit for the ACLU.

Expert advice for a seriously good sleepA good night’s kip affects everything from our mood to our food cravings. Psychologist and sleep expert Chireal Shallow gives us the low down… How much, when and why? The average adult needs to get six to nine hours a night. Older adults may require less, younger people more. The sleep you catch before midnight is more important than after. Research into shift work shows this type of working is a health hazard. Psychologist and sleep expert Chireal Shallow says: ‘If we sleep well, we’re less likely to be irritable, will have fewer accidents and our work performance improves.’ MORE” The 5 reasons you need to go to bed naked TONIGHT 6 steps to slumber Meditate Take time to reduce stress and any intrusive, anxious thoughts by practising breathing in a relaxed way. Get an SAD light Not only will it make you feel more awake in daytime, it also helps to regulate your circadian rhythm (your 24-hour physiological cycle, or body clock), allowing you to naturally drift off and wake up. Try an Innolux Bright Light Therapy device (purelifestylewonders.com). Work out ‘Exercise in the early morning or afternoon to relieve stress and prepare for winding down in the evening,’ advises Chireal.
