Asked about it at a news conference, she said the Muslim community should be at the centre of any film about the shootings, not her.

New Zealand's Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern leaves after Friday prayers at Hagley Park outside Al-Noor mosque in Christchurch, New Zealand March 22, 2019. REUTERS/Jorge Silva/File PhotoNew Zealand Muslims objected on Friday to a plan for a film about the 2019 Christchurch mosque shootings in which a gunman killed 51 people, saying the attack was still too raw for grieving families and their community. The 40-year-old leader's compassionate response to the attack united her shocked country and was praised globally. "Although recognition of our prime minister for her response to attacks is well deserved, we question the timing and whether a movie is appropriate right now?

(CNN) You can thank Netflix executive Carolina Garcia for helping bring shows like "Stranger Things" and "Chilling Adventures of Sabrina" to the streaming screen, but everyone else can thank Jack Bauer for Carolina Garcia. "Netflix has become very aware of where we as a company need to be better and have committed actual dollars to helping funnel that," Garcia said. Too often, Garcia said, Latinx stories are centered on pain or trauma, which is far from the whole story of the culture. This debate -- for example, whether only Latinx creators should tell Latinx stories -- is a complex one with heated opinions on both sides. Carolina Garcia, Director of Original Series at Netflix, wants to see Latinx stories and creators elevated.

“The Engagement,” by Sasha Issenberg, recounts the complex and chaotic chain reaction that thrust same-sex marriage from the realm of conservative conjecture to the top of the gay political agenda and, eventually, to the halls of the Supreme Court. On this week’s podcast, Issenberg talks about the deeply researched book, which covers 25 years of legal and cultural history. “What they have done, ultimately,” he says of those who won the victory, “is helped to enshrine, both in the legal process and in American culture, a sense that marriage is a unique institution. And the language they used to talk about it — about love and commitment — is so particular, I think, to the dynamic between two people that in a certain respect marriage is a more central institution in American life now than it was 30 years ago, because we went through this political fight over it.”ImageJ. Hoberman visits the podcast to discuss his piece about 10 books that, taken together, tell the story of Hollywood. He talks, among other subjects, about why the only celebrity memoir on his list is “Lulu in Hollywood,” by Louise Brooks, who acted in the 1920s and ’30s and published her memoir much later in life.

Hedge Fund Behind Amazon-MGM Deal Amasses Big Bet on Uranium

The hedge fund behind the Amazon.com Inc. -MGM Holdings Inc. deal has another trade up its sleeve: going big on uranium. It is buying and selling uranium alongside mining companies, specialist traders and utility firms with nuclear-power plants, turning the fund into a significant player in the market. The hedge fund became MGM’s biggest shareholder after the Hollywood studio emerged from bankruptcy in 2010. Anchorage’s physical uranium holdings are also a rarity because Wall Street firms don’t typically own physical uranium. Most investors bet on uranium prices by buying shares of mining firms, or through companies like Yellow Cake PLC., which acts as an exchange-traded fund.

Aura, a company backed by Hollywood mogul Jeffrey Katzenberg and Silicon Valley investor Sujay Jaswa, raised $150 million to help further its bid to become a one-stop offering for online security. The funding round, led by private-equity firm Warburg Pincus LLC, brings the company’s war chest to $450 million and values the company at more than $1 billion, Aura officials said. Aura this week is rolling out an all-in-one digital-security product that includes antivirus and identity-protection software for consumers, and the company plans to launch an advertising campaign later this year. “Everything we’ve done up until now was to put together the rocket ship,” Mr. Katzenberg, who recently joined Aura’s board, said in an interview. “This investment is the rocket fuel to make it the safety product for consumers around the globe.”
