Whatever the group is doing is then interrupted by Allison (Annie Murphy), the classically attractive wife, who pauses their fun with her desire for a little more stereotypical domesticity. When “KCFH” was initially announced back in 2018, multiple outlets immediately connected it to the then-recently canceled sitcom “Kevin Can Wait,” starring Kevin James. Kevin isn’t just an overgrown man-child: He’s a domestic abuser who spent 10 years first grooming and then isolating Allison. It’s hard to know if “KCFH” will be AMC’s first nonzombie show to hit big since “Breaking Bad” ended. And, as the show goes on, the ironic “sitcom” sequences do get harder to sit through.

U.S. Trade Representative Katherine Tai testifies before the Senate Finance Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, U.S., May 12, 2021. Susan Walsh/Pool via REUTERS/File PhotoUnited States Trade Representative Katherine Tai discussed trade and investment issues with Taiwan minister John Deng on Thursday and agreed to convene a meeting of the countries' Trade And Investment Framework Agreement Council "in coming weeks", Tai's office said in a statement. "Ambassador Tai emphasized the importance of the U.S.-Taiwan trade and investment relationship and explained the Biden-Harris administration's worker-centered trade priorities," USTR said. Taiwan has long angled for a free trade deal with the United States, but trade and investment talks between the two have been stalled since the Obama administration. The outcome could affect trade talks with Washington.

Marvel’s “Loki,” Disney+’s third Marvel Cinematic Universe streaming series, is the Marvel machine firing on all cylinders, by turns charmingly droll and whimsically kooky, taking the best parts of previous fare and putting them altogether into a bona fide hit. Loki may never reach his dream of being god-king of the universe, but “Loki” is about to become the god-king of Disney+. Since this is a series about time travel, let’s rewind to Loki’s origins. In creating this new show, the producers of “Loki” have managed to combine all the winning elements of Marvel’s previous series successes. Like the big-screen “Avengers” movies before it, “Loki” is the perfect distillation of everything Marvel has been working toward — just slightly smaller and less godlike.

REUTERS/Thomas PeterThe Chinese foreign ministry defended the value of cultural exchanges with Japan on Wednesday after Chinese intellectuals came under heavy attack from nationalists online for attending events sponsored by the Japanese government over many years. Some prominent Chinese scholars and writers came under fire last week after nationalistic netizens noticed their names among a list of 144 Chinese intellectuals who had been sponsored by the Japan Foundation to visit Japan from 2008 to 2016. "We must focus on setting the tone right, be open and confident but also modest and humble, and strive to create a credible, lovable and respectable image of China," Xi said, according to Xinhua news agency. Some Chinese diplomats and commentators have taken up hardline positions on social media in recent years, appealing to nationalist passions among their online followers.

President Joe Biden on Thursday expanded restrictions on American investments in certain Chinese companies with alleged ties to the country's military and surveillance efforts, adding more firms to a growing blacklist. In an executive order, Biden barred U.S. investors from financial interests in 59 Chinese companies over fears of their links to the Chinese government's geopolitical ambitions, continuing some portions of the tough tact former President Donald Trump took in discussions with Beijing. allows the United States to prohibit – in a targeted and scoped manner – U.S. investments in Chinese companies that undermine the security or democratic values of the United States and our allies," the White House said in a press release. Among the 59 companies barred are Aero Engine Corporation of China, Aerosun Corporation, Fujian Torch Electron Technology and Huawei Technologies.

“Lisey’s Story” may be one of Stephen King’s best novels — but that’s exactly why it may be better for fans to wait for a better adaptation than they’ll find on Apple TV+ starting June 4. Apple, of course, additionally decided to have the master of horror himself write the screenplays for all eight episodes. Apple TV+ tends to produce series of the chapter format but then does weekly releases — including with “Lisey’s Story” — which wind up a disservice to the show and the audience.

President Biden detailed what he said was the lasting impact of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre on Black Americans and laid out steps his administration will take aimed at narrowing the racial wealth gap, after meeting Tuesday with survivors of the tragedy. He is the first president to travel to Tulsa to commemorate the massacre. Mr. Biden issued a “Day of Remembrance” proclamation on Monday, committing to honor the legacy of the Greenwood community. The president said actions like those of the white mobs in Tulsa contributed to what he described as the ways racism became embedded in the country’s laws and culture. “We can’t just choose to learn what we want to know and not what we should know,” Mr. Biden said.

President Biden is expected to detail steps his administration will take aimed at narrowing the racial wealth gap, as he meets Tuesday with survivors of the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre in Oklahoma and participates in events marking the centennial of the tragedy. Mr. Biden issued a “Day of Remembrance” proclamation on Monday, committing to honor the legacy of the Greenwood community. The administration is also expected to propose reversing steps taken by the Republican Trump administration to soften or revoke Obama-era regulations cracking down on discrimination in housing. Administration officials said ahead of his visit to Tulsa that Mr. Biden didn’t plan to announce new measures on some issues championed by progressives in his Democratic Party and civil rights groups, such as canceling student debt. “You cannot begin to address the racial wealth gap without addressing the student-loan debt crisis,” NAACP President Derrick Johnson said in a statement.

Mexico accuses Zara, Anthropologie & Patowl of cultural appropriation

Mexico has accused international fashion brands Zara, Anthropologie, and Patowl of cultural appropriation, saying they used patterns from indigenous Mexican groups in their designs without any benefit to the communities. The Ministry of Culture says Zara, owned by Inditex, the world's largest clothing retailer, used a pattern distinctive to the indigenous Mixteca community of San Juan Colorado in the southern state of Oaxaca. URBN, Inditex, and Patowl could not be immediately reached for comment. The extent to which fashion designers have profited from incorporating cultural designs without acknowledging their origins or fairly compensating communities has been a point of contention in recent years. In 2019, the Mexican government accused fashion house Carolina Herrera of cultural appropriation of indigenous patterns and textiles from Mexico in its collection.

So she’s been rewarded with a Joker-like origin story in Disney’s latest live-action reboot, “Cruella,” in theaters this weekend and on Disney+ Premier Access. The film’s cattiness means it accidentally stumbles into being more delightful than it has any right to be. Unfortunately, the film, at nearly 2 1/2 hours, doesn’t always stay as buoyant as its visual and aural joys. How does one go from bon mots, pranks and a groin kick to leading a London-wide puppy-napping ring and committing mass puppy murder?

Rivero Chong said authorities have for years struggled to stop illegal building, often carried out at night or on the weekends.

He said outside of the single remaining block of Greenwood businesses, there are only four Black property owners in the downtown area, one of which is the Greenwood Chamber of Commerce. Tulsa’s Black residents have faced displacement and a loss of property and wealth that has stretched across generations. Freeman Culver III, president and CEO of the Greenwood Chamber of Commerce, said few Black business owners remain in downtown Tulsa. But if racial equity isn’t considered in the redevelopment, she said, then Black residents will continue to lose out on leases to the wealthy and well-connected.

From Trump buddy Steve Bannon’s vitamin “defense pack” to Gwyneth Paltrow’s apparently exploding vagina-scented candles, ever more celebrities are using their star power to hawk the evidence-free, the ridiculous or the downright dangerous. Scientific evidence does not support using zinc and vitamin D3 supplements as a cure, or even a treatment, for the coronavirus. Functional medics seem particularly obsessed with vitamin supplements. Despite the fact that, unless you have a proven deficiency, science says adding lab-created vitamin supplements to your diet (instead of getting them in healthy food) is unnecessary at best and harmful — even fatal — at worst. But we don’t need fake wellness sages playing on our frustrations to sell us snake oil.
